      we did the chocolate linen pants for the guys and ivory shirts. The shirts aren't button down though, they are just open at the collar. My finance is just wearing all ivory. My dress isn't white it is ivory and the ivory matched my dress perfectly. I don't have a picture, but I thought they were okay. if you go on the website under men and then under linen shirts, we chose the Majorca shirt. I ordered 3 different shirts and they all liked this one the best. They do have a button down shirt on there in white.

Those of you who are hiring him, are you doing the Love or Ultimate wedding package?

        Juan Navarro:
        3 hr time limit
        gives you more photo's? (I've heard they are the same but it looks like Juan gives you more)
        Gives you ALL photo's taken??
        charges extra for TTD - but you get more photo's for the extra money, too.

        Resort photographer:
        no time limit (they told me)
        no extra charge for TTD
        fewer pictures?? only 50 included in package
        $15 per photo after the given 50

        Help please!!!

        I had Juan as my photographer and I had the free wedding package that did not include photos so she had me choose which package I wanted from a list she gave me. I was under the impression both the resort photographer and Juan was the same price. I had chose package #4. I believe it was $1040 USD and we recieved about 96 4X6 photos in a book along with about 6-8 8X10's and maybe about 5-10 5X7's. He did color, black and white, sepia, and black and white with color added in. They were truly amazing. Of the photos he choose and printed for us he made us a cd that has all rights to make whatever copies etc... When they met us to give us our photos they also showed us all the rest of the photos which totaled about 1300 photos and offered us to buy the complete set on cds with all rights to making copies etc... we opted to purchase the extra cds because there were just so many great pictures.

        Good Luck!

          I think the rule is that you cannot have fake rose petals on the beach due to Mexican law. I looked into this before my weddng because I thought about having my wedding on beach as well as wanted to have lots of pictures on the beach and I went with the natural touch flowers that are silk based. I was told I could have my bouquet but scattering rose petals would be against mexican law due to not being able to gather all of them after we are done. I was told it was harmfull to the fish/environment if they couldn't be completely cleaned up. I would ask Ana about this if you are getting married on beach. I think you can use real flowers.

                      Anyone already married at the dreams that used their photographer's for everything? Have any information to share about your experience? How many photo's did you get? Did you get CD? Etc......

                      Thanks!
