    Hello Ladies,

     

    I see a lot of posts asking about photographers at Adventures and there are a ton of posts in this thread about how awesome Anel is.  I wasn't able to book Anel so was nervous about the quality of the other photographers on staff.  I shouldn't have worried.

     

    I'd like to put a good word out there for Santiago Gabay as well.  Our photos turned out phenomenal.  He photographed our Rehearsal Dinner, our Wedding, and our Trash the Dress session.  I am pleased beyond words.  I follow him on Facebook and our sessions were no flukes:   he is great!  You can find him here:  https://www.facebook...160623994092947

     

    If you want to view all of our photos, they can be found here: 

    http://share.shutter...36a7a2c26a24b92

     

    His assistant for our Trash the Dress was Frank Zamudio and I have been following his work on Facebook as well. He is extremely creative and anyone who has him should feel confident as well.  https://www.facebook...iquePhotography

     

    We got to chat we these two quite a bit during our Trash The Dress session and it sounds like Adventures is pretty picky about their photographers.  I wouldn't worry about your photographer!

     

    Good luck to all of you!

      I I wish I wasn't so short so I could do this ha x

      Ha, well I would suggest some sort of wedge that is strapped to your foot, I'm sure you could make that work :-)

      Hi Lovely Ladies!!

       

      So I have had my wedding date confirmed for 3rd October 2014!! So exciting :)

       

      In the confirmation, it provided the photographer and DJ details and advised them to contact them directly, it may sound silly, but do I just email them advising when my wedding is? I'm not really sure!

       

      Also, I'm really struggling to pick a song to play when we are signing/fingerprinting everything.. any ideas please?

       

      Thanks so much in advance!! xx

      Hi Everyone, so I have a bit of a personal question, I have gone with the ultimate package, but I'm wondering how much everyone else ended up paying in 'extras' when they got there, I have a price list but just want to make sure I have the right sort of price in mind, as it seems I will only get this price right before the wedding... these are the main extras I want - -LED dance floor -fire dancers (has anyone else had these)? -bridesmaid/arch/centerpieces flowers etc -some lighting -Music I was thinking of just going for the I pod dock to keep costs down? and then using the trio from the package for the ceremony rather than the cocktail hour? (has anyone done this) - Photographer it says on the form I can add hours on for $99 Has anyone done this? anyway for all the extras I am budgeting for about $3500 am I being to optimistic? any help would be great with this? x

          I love the mother of the bride tank tops with the starfish.  Where did you find them?  Thanks

            it depends on the number of guests. I am getting married in April and you do have to contact your vendors on your own.....photographer will be more then that. I have the ultimate package and it only covers the ceremony. Our cocktail hour is at 6 so we need multiple hours and its coming to an extra 500 almost!!! Plus if you have over 20 guests you have to pay for food/beverage. Its insane

              Hi Jillann13, 

              I was busy wedding planning, so apologies on the deleyed response. We actually just switch packages because they were NOT willing to give us credit for certain things (that we wouldn't use). I can definately stay in touch and let you know how our wedding goes... however the rumor is true, the communication is lacking. Hopefully it turns out all work out in the end!

                laureninfw, 

                We are getting married at DRC, Novermber 4th, 2013 as well! How is planning going? How long are you there? 

                 

                38 days until the BIG DAY! 

                 

                BTW, not sure if you have gotten your linens yet, or what colors you are doing but I have a handful of extra chair sashes if you are in need!
