Moon Palace - Cancun Review - July 11, 2009

Recommended Posts

Tina, what a great review! I really need to get on writing mine - I just feel like maybe I should wait until I have more pictures! Maybe I can write it an add them later!

 

You look absolutely gorgeous and like you had a fabulous time! I'm so happy for you - you deserved an incredible wedding!

 

By the way, I swear I walked right by you one night. I almost asked if it was you, but I am too shy like that! Matt and I were walking back to our building through the Nizuc courtyard area where the golf cart pick up was (next to the back lobby entrance by the salon) and I saw a tall red haired woman with a Texas accent taking a picture of someone with a golf cart driver...and I turned to Matt and I was like, I wonder if that's Tina?! LOL!

Everything is so gorgeous! I loved your dress. Do you have a name for the mariachi band? I thought your sand ceremony was beautiful and I love how you included your family.

The mariachi band worked for Moon Palace. They did an outstanding job. The mariachi music for our wedding was one of my favorite things. DH said from the very beginning that was what he wanted and what a great choice it was. We didn't have to do anything because they have it down.

Our sand ceremony was very special. First and foremost, it did include my sons but it also included our guests. Each guest added a seashell when they arrived to the gazeba and we left the rest a surprise. It truly was the blending of everyone.

These were our words:

TINA and BENNIE -Before you met, your lives were on separate roads…. Each going in different directions and leading to different destinations. Somehow along the way you met, fell in love, and today you find yourselves standing together at the entrance of a new path that will forever join your once separate journeys into one.

Before each of you, there is a container of sand. Your individual sand represents the separate journeys you once were on. They also represent your own sets of friends and families that were once apart and will now be joined. As you pour your individual sand, it represents the coming together of your friends and family through your marriage, into one.

(PAUSE until sand is being poured)

Christian and Carson, please join us. (PAUSE)

Just as we have now bound TINA and BENNIE to one another, we will now celebrate the unification of CHRISTIAN and CARSON into this family. TINA and BENNIE has poured their sands into the vase, showing that their marriage is the foundation of this family.

As CHRISTIAN and CARSON now add their sands (Boys pour sand), we are reminded that though we are all different people, it is our individuality that adds to the tapestry of the family. Like the sands poured before , so these sands will also mix and be unable to be separated.

TINA and BENNIE, As the sand has blended together, your lives are now joined…. Your separate journeys through life are now one. Your friends and family are as one . For now, you will share those who are in your lives and will walk hand in hand along the path of your marriage – United and Strong as husband and wife, as inseparable as these grains of sand.

    • Recent studies indicate that organizations, both large and small, either already have an HRO relationship and plan to expand it, or are considering one in the coming year. The survey, conducted by HfS Research and the London School of Economics, finds that 31% of business already outsource human resources san antonio and are looking to increase outsourced services over the next year. What is the driver for these businesses to outsource human resources? It is no secret that in lean economic times, business owners are pressed to identify expenses within an organization that can be reduced or minimized. Employment overhead (payroll, taxes, workers' compensation insurance, employee benefits, governmental compliance, and other employee-related cost centers) typically comprise the single highest area of expense within a company. More than rent, or facilities operations, or equipment, or compliance, human resources administration and expenses weigh heaviest on the business's bottom line. Streamlined HR Systems HRO firms offer streamlined human resource systems to their clients, significantly minimizing management's time in overseeing daily administrative tasks. Non-productive "paper pushing" can be outsourced to the HR firm, enabling key staff to focus on their core competencies. Processes such as payroll processing, tax filing and compliance, Unemployment Claims administration, workers' compensation management, and employee benefits enrollment and management can all easily and efficiently be outsourced. Cost effective insurance products. Reducing employment risks Government compliance and regulations continue to grow in complexity and scale. From wage and hour issues, to discrimination restrictions, to protected classes of employees and new disability guidelines, employers often walk through a minefield of risk. Without dedicated human resources personnel or legal counsel, it is likely a business will be faced with some form of an employment lawsuit in the coming years which can costs tens-of-thousands of dollars. With close to 100,000 employment claims filed in 2010 (the highest on record!), employers recognize the risk and are turning to Human Resource Outsourcing firms to assist them in managing these risks. Human Resources Outsourcing may not be the solution for every employment need. However, for most employers with less than 200 employees looking to reduce employment expenses and overhead, outsourcing human resources may be exactly what their organization needs. As the economy continues to improve and stabilize, the time will soon come that employers will be refocusing on growth and profitability. It may also entail rehiring staff, restructuring the organization, or simply concentrating on areas that have been left on the side. Certainly, proper employment administration and oversight will be priorities to get back on their feet. However, with the demands of rebuilding, many employers may be unable to spend the necessary time focusing on their staff. Read about one organization that found a different way - through Human Resources Outsourcing. Since joining the San Antonio Human Resources Outsourcing firm, he feels that the day-to-day protection he experiences in the area of employment exposures is immeasurable. Our HRO vendor has become our 'go-to resource.' Without this type of relationship we end up making our own decisions, without proper knowledge of the law, and will ultimately You think you can use common sense, but common sense and the law rarely match! The Director says the benefits of the outsourcing relationship were immediately realized, as the new systems and processes were implemented and functioning within 30-60 days.  
    • As of late 2019, the Gatekeepers Museum no longer hosts wedding events.
    • So thanks to coronavirus, my husband and I have had to make alterations to our wedding. I don’t think I have to put this in, but this isn’t a joke and need we thoughts on this.   We’re planning on having our full, entire wedding inside this bubble (I’m inside it for scale). This is to get complete isolation from the virus and to prevent it from spreading to either of us, or if we have the virus somehow, spreading it to others. Both of will get inside it for the whole day (or at least that’s the plan). We are ok with making small to moderate changes from a typical wedding if it means isolating inside a bubble, but any big changes would mean we probably won’t use the bubble then. Are there any parts in the wedding that would be difficult or downright impossible to do inside this bubble? What are your thoughts on this idea, and what would need to be changed from a traditional wedding?  
    • Sadly no .. its been a year and a half since our wedding and till this day we cannot get a hold of him.  We had a few people reach out to us and the same thing happened to them about a month or 2 after us.
