    Hey Ana,
    ...Question, I am set to have my reception at Dreams Cascade Pool Terrace. Do you know the difference between that and the Oceana where you held yours, or would you recommend one over the other? I love the way your reception looks private and with a small amount of people together its nice when you are out in the open dancin?! lol. I am guessing there will be approx. 40-50 people attending my wedding if that would cause problems for the Oceana Terrace.
    Any thoughts would help, Thanks a bunch girly!

    Hey! I actually took some pictures of a cascada terrace set up, and just finished posting them in this thread http://bestdestinati....097#post768353

    its a nice area to have it set up, especially at night because all the trees are lit up etc... but it is definitely in a less private area. Michael and I had our dinner that night at the Seaside Grill which literally overlooks the terrace and we heard all the speeches loud and clear. Oceana is definitely more private and initmate. So it totally depends on what you're looking to have. Also one other thing I noticed, is that for the Cascada terrace alot of the guests had to walk on sand to get to the beach bar for drinks if the waiter wasn't around quick enought, where as at the Oceana they do a special bar set up right beside the reception area so its more convenient.

      you're welcome if you have any more questions please ask. We had 33 people at our reception but the Oceana Terrace could easily have handled 50. The second wedding we saw there actually had 6 round tables of 10 ppl each (yes I counted lol) and it wasn't crowded at all. The 5 tables we had could have handled 10 each, so if you see how they were set up, there is still quite a bit of room in the middle for dancing etc...

        Ana I love the picture of you and Michael that you use as a footer. You are such a great looking couple. Your wedding looked like a lot of fun. I love that all the dresses were made just for this event.

          Ana, what a gorgeous bride!!!! Great pics and thanks for sharing!! I too will be using Juan as my photographer and I am soooo excited!!!! I am also getting married in the San Jose del Cabo church on November 28, 2009. I did have a question about the pews in the church and if they were right up against the walls. I am having an aisle runner but dont want my guests to walk on it prior to me getting there so Im wondering if I have any room to move the pews towards the centre so that my guests can walk along the sides of the prews. Not sure if you remember much of that as Im sure you were pretty nervous!!! Any information would be great!!! Thanks Ana!!!

              Hi Olga, you're going to LOVE Juan. He's amazing! As for the Church, I don't think that the pews move or are able to be moved over. They are embedded into the ground. You might want to have one of your BM's spread out the aisle runner just after everyone has been seated, instead.

                I just finally got the chance to read your review! It was so helpful and I loved the ariel pictures (I actually printed them off). Thank you! So a couple questions with the set-up. Did you organize the layout or did Yesica? What is the station to the right? Is that where all the food is? Where is the bar or do the servers just bring you the drinks? I just want to make sure our guests will not have to walk away from the wedding to get drinks. I've been at weddings where people are over at the bar instead of dancing, which is muy mal! Ha! Also, what food choices did you end up having? Did I miss that somewhere? I've been contemplating on desserts and thought cupcakes were a great idea. Do you mind me asking how much 60 cupcakes were from Sweet Dreams? We may just go that route. Thanks for your help!!
