Hi Carley!! Welcome and congrats!!
I was married at Sun Palace on 11.23.12. I wanted the beautiful beaches and water that is why I choose Sun Palace- that and the fact that there are not too many weddings at Sun and I wanted my wedding to be the only one that day and it was!! We actually stayed at Moon Palace with our guests and had the wedding at Sun. I had to pay for private transportation to and from but it was well worth it. I don't know if they allow this often, but I was able to get it done.
We acutally flew down a photographer and assistant from home and had her photograph for 3 days- it actually ended up being cheaper as I used my comp'ed nights from my group benefits from 75+ nights than hiring a photographer in Mexico for 6 or 8 hours on the wedding day.
I had a symbolic ceremony- I too was scared to have my blood drawn and I didn't want to pay all that extra money to have everything translated. We got married at home about a month after our wedding in Mexico.
Feel free to PM me any other questions and I will send you a link to my wedding photos at Sun Palace!!

I am contemplating where to have my wedding because I love the beaches at Cancun, the blue water, but love the gazebo at moon. Any advice for where I may be able to get both? Also, any recommendations for photographers? I would love to see sample pictures! Lastly, did you have a symbolic or civil ceremony? I am very concerned with having to have my blood drawn in another country. When you have a civil ceremony, is it performed only in spanish?
Sorry for all the questions, but I look forward to all responses :-)
