El Dorado Seaside Suites, Mayan Riviera - Wedding Photos!

Recommended Posts

We are posting this to talk about our experience, and to tell anyone who is curious about hiring a photographer in the Mayan Riviera, or Curious about what resort to choose. We were married on April 18,2007, and it was better than we could have ever expected.. We had a wedding party of 23, and we stayed at the El Dorado seaside Suites.

 

We spent a long time researching resorts, and it was a tough choice! We finally settled on the El Dorado Seaside resorts because it is a smaller resort (-200 rooms), it got great reviews, and it was actually a LOT cheaper than any of the other nice ones we researched (Riu, Secrets, Dreams). Let us just say that NO pictures you will find online will do this resort justice! It is VERY beautiful, very quiet, and the staff are amazing. EVERYOBDY says hi to you with a genuine smile on their face. Even gardeners, cooks, security, cleaners etc... You can tell when people are just saying hello to be polite, and this was not the case here.. The staff were so friendly and professional. The food was out of this world! there are 4 a la carte 5 star restaurants, and the food was SO amazing there we donâ€t even know where to begin!

 

We could not find any photos of any weddings, or any feedback about weddings, so we didnâ€t really know what to expect. The wedding Co-ordinator, Vanya, was so friendly and accommodating, she made the whole experience stress-free (it was a little stressful before we got there, not having seen the location, where other things are, privacy etc...). There werenâ€t hundreds of people all walking around gawking at our wedding, and being a couple-oriented, adult resort, it was nice and quiet most of the time.

 

Photographer - when it came to selecting Sol Tamargo, we pretty much made up our mind as soon as we saw her website. We looked at about 5 different Mayan Riviera photographers, and her work blew everyone else away! Here are the photos from our wedding Sol Tamargo Photography Wedding Photojournalism She is a bit more money than some other photographers, but considering that these are photos that we will have and cherish for the rest of our lives, and that her work is so artistic and professional, it wasnâ€t a tough decision! Considering we also saved about $15,000 minimum by going away, it was an amazing deal. Sol and her assistant Vincent were so amazing, they fired off 400+ shots in 5 hrs, and almost every shot we got was so amazing.. All of our friends and relatives could not believe how amazing her work is!

 

We would strongly recommend both Sol, and the El Dorado Seaside to anyone who wants to get married in the Mayan Riviera! Feel free to email us if you have ANY questions!

Hi! Your pictures are really beautiful! I really want to get married in a Karisma hotel and I was looking for the El Dorado Royal but the beach is unswimmable there and my guests are really beach lovers! So I am very glad that someone got married at the Seaside! I want to know EVERYTHING!

What a stunning bride you were - love, love, LOVE your dress!!!

 

Thanks for the great review. If we didn't have kids coming, I'd definitely consider it!

 

Edit - I finally got through all the pics. It's rare that I watch an entire slideshow all the way through. Beautiful!!! I love the picture candle holder idea - how did you do that? What a great touch. The whole thing looked absolutely magical. Congratulations :)

The pictures are great, we love Sol around here. It looks like everything turned out perfectly. I have a question for you, where did your husband get his suit from? That is pretty much what I am looking for for my FH to wear.

 

Thank you for sharing.
