    More pics...

    *We started a shared space on walgreens.com so that all our guest could upload their pics and order any they wanted. This has been great!

    *I think I forgot to add that it is very windy! I am thankful that I had my hair up. I battled with my veil a bit but that created some cute pics!

    Reception area outside the Mexican restaurant. The restaurant was closed this particular evening so the space was completely private.

    This fountain split the dinner space in 2. We had tables set up on both sides and then at the head of the fountain was a table for the two of us. The waiters quickly moved out table back and we had our first dance at the head of the fountain also. It worked out great!

          Soon2BePowers,


          what did the resort charge you to bring in an outside photographer?

              We paid $100 for Claudia and her assistant to come to the resort. If your outside vendor is at your reception/dinner and want to eat then apparently you have to pay extra for that.

                did you have any guests not staying at the hotel, i was wondering if they really charge 100 per guest to come to the wedding

                  All of my guest stayed the Valentin so I am not sure. The resort does not require bracelets but you do have to get checked in at the gates.

                    Thank you for the review and the pics! You are a gorgeous bride!
                    VIM is on my top 2 list from Mexico area, mainly b/c I would like a Chapel ceremony. Did you happen to see the chapel? Any opinion? Also, did you, DH, and the witnesses stay 4 day requirement? Other resorts have told me that this isn't necessary, but VIM WC has told me this is required...not sure who to believe...
                    Congratulations on your marriage and hope you are loving being the newlyweds!
