Thanks Sparkles8300 for sharing your Father's photos! They help so much in researching venues.

How many guests are you estimating having? And what made you choose Moondance Cliffs over the Villas for the wedding/reception site? Best of luck with your planning, I'm glad we have this thread for sharing our information back and forth!

My mother was the one who swayed me to have the wedding and reception at the cliffs. We are going to be on the beach for 4 days so she thought it would be classier to the wedding and reception at the cliffs overlooking the water, instead of the beach which everyone would be lounging on for 5 days. Also we are doing a footwashing ceremony and I want to wear nice shoes, so he can take them off to wash my feet. I am so excited. We are going down there in a few weeks to meet Oneika and do a site visit. Where are you at in your planning?

I am getting married at MDV in May 2010 and have been working with (via email) Oneika. It would be great if we all could share information. Have either of you decided on vendors for cake or entertainment?
I think either location, MDV or MDC, will be a great spot for a wedding.
Congrats to you both!

I am using Misha Earle as my photographer. She is an associate of Sungold's. I'm not having a cake, so I can't make any recommendations there. This is my post on what I'm doing in lieu of wedding cake: (http://bestdestinati...om/forum/t46735) I met Oneika last Dec when we went, and she was great! I'm so excited to have my wedding there!!
Oh, gbyrd, I love Sarah Sproullie's work.

Also, she came in SIGNIFICANTLY lower than a lot of other photogs (I also liked Brian Nejedly's (sp?) work, but he was more expensive than her.) I DO SUGGEST to anyone considering using Misha to contact her directly and do not go through Sungold first. I contacted Sungold first because my Wedding Planner in Houston is close friends with Paula and she recommended I use them, but unfortunately they were outside of my budget. I later contacted Misha on my own and got a great rate from her, but when Paula found out, I ended up having to go through Sungold. I got the same rate and contract, but I feel bad because that cuts into Misha's earnings, since I'm sure she'll have to share a percentage with Sungold.
I also want to say that Misha is soooooo sweet! I am facebook friends with her now and she makes sweet comments on my status updates.
here's her website: MishaEarlePhotography.com She's also doing our TTD the day after the wedding, and I can't wait for those!
***Disclaimer - I have nothing against Paula and Damien of Sungold. In fact, I was going to have them do my E-pics, because they have a residence near me in Texas, but because they are so established, I really just can't afford their rates. I spoke and emailed with Paula multiple times, and she is such a sweet lady.
