    Whereabouts are you getting married?  Maybe the difference in the deposits is based on the different locations for the shoots?  I'm getting married in Ocho Rios (Jamaica). 

     

    We are doing the TTD off site as well, but have to look into the hotel stay since she is coming from Kingston.

      I am getting married in Montego Bay.  Its not a huge deal, I'm pretty much more concerned about the deposit.

        I used Marcia for my wedding July 24, 2010, in Negril.  She had two assistance with her for pictures and video.  I booked her a year before my wedding, and at the time I paid my deposit via paypal, not sure if she does that anymore.  I paid her cash the day of the wedding, right before she left.

          After sending my deposit via money order (to the CT, USA address), I received a receipt today via email that the deposit was received.  This also included the balance that will be due the day of the wedding.  Hope that helps a little to clear up any concerns about the deposit!

            Thanks ladies.  I emailed her for clarity on where to send the deposit and she called me back immediately.  She said the deposit was to be sent to her daughter.  Since I read that on here before I am not more comfy.  She also explained that she had not always taken deposits in the past but people have cancelled on her with little to no notice and it is something she now does.  I totally understand and never had a problem with the deposit.  Just wanted to be sure!

              I might contact her because I would feel better giving her a deposit, instead of the full amount the day of the wedding.

                Was anyone able to pay for her any other way other than cash the day of?  I have booked her for my Nov CTI wedding and she wants to be paid cash the day of.  I just don't want to have to carry that much around with me for a few days in Jamaica.

                  Has anyone heard from Marcia in the last week?

                   

                  Usually her or Cleopatra respond to e-mails in 1-2 days max.  I have sent 3 emails (the same one) within the last 10 days and I haven't heard anything back.

                    She emailed me this morning in response to an email I sent her yesterday.

                      I spoke with her on Thur or Friday (last week) and confirmed all my final details.  I know her phone number changed.  If you call her the new number is on the voice mail.
