Flowers, Photographer Riu OR

Recommended Posts

I actually posted this question in another thread, but I think it deserves its own.

 

Does anyone have any pics of the flower and/or gazebo/arch options available at the Rio Ocho Rios? I am also curious about the "in-house" photographer, anyone been in touch with him?

 

Or alternatively, is anyone using outside sources for any of these things?

 

I know most of the Riu Brides 2B are not getting married until next year, but by what I've read so far you are all ahead of the ball and extremely organized.

I have a few emails from the Riu photographer. PM me your email address, and I will forward them to you. Personally, I was less than thrilled with his work, but you may love it! Photography is one of the most important things for me, so I'm willing to spend a little more on it.

 

If you want, you can bring in your own photographer as long as the stay at the hotel for the minimum stay. I'm trying to work out my finances so I can hire Jill Higgins on here- I LOVE her work!!! rolleyes.gif

I have an email form Michael- the photgrapher. He sent me quite a few pictures of his previous weddings. I can foward his work to you if you send me your email. I am curious of flower and arch options as well. Have you seen anything?? I emailed Chandlyn but didn't get much help. I don't know everyone says she emails back right away but everytime I email her I never get a reply. I am really nice when I send emails!! heheehe

Chandlyn doesn't email me back right away - usually in 1-2 weeks. I definitely want to find out flower & arch options as well... I'll try shooting her an email too. Oh, and I have 3 emails from Michael from Photoshop, though someone else started a thread about the photography at Riu Ocho Rios - here you go: http://bestdestinationwedding.com/fo...ices-pics.html

I'm not too computer-savy, so thanks for posting them for me on here! I didn't get prices, I actually just got those pics from another RIU bride on another site.

Perfect!! Let me know what she says about pricing. I am much happier with those arches then the one I originally saw. Thank you so much for posting those!! I emailed her about 3-4 weeks ago and still nothing back. I am just going to re-send my email. Hopefully she will get that one. I had more luck when I called her on the telephone.

Are those flowers the ones Riu offers? I heard there is a place where you can get your flowers off site. Chandlyn sent me an email with flower options but they were all carnations. I wish I was better on the computer I am not very good at posting pictures. I would love to get the neat little ruler at the bottom to show how long until married but I am useless on the computer. hahahaha

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
