I'm not sure what the capacity for a reception is in that restaurant - but if you want enough room for dancing, I'd guess around 40pp. It's nice because it's covered overhead, but you still get a beautiful view of the ocean and the pools, yet your group is separated into a private area. That party had a buffet set up for the reception and then the light-up dance floor in the middle of the restaurant.
    -Hope this helps.
    I talked to Yazmin about this at our site visit - she said that if occupancy is 60% or LESS you can use the restaurant that is closed down for the reception. They close one restaurant each night but they don't decide which restaurant until a day or two before. We're actually going to do this for our welcome dinner. Here's the deal with that though - you won't know which restaurant until you get there and it is based on occupancy. So it can be done, but you'll have to have a plan b in case it doesn't work out.

          You had a beautiful wedding...glad you didn't let the weather ruin anything for you!!! was your photographer part of the package or did you hire her outside vendor? Did you get a dj or just use the sound system?

              Matt from Del Sol was nice enough to send me this link of a wedding that he recently shot at DRC. He mentioned that the bride is a fellow forum member so you may have already seen some of the shots if she posted them. I hadn't so I thought that I would share them here also just in case I wasn't the only one. I know we all love being able to see new pics that give us a fresh perspective of what the weddings are actually like since many of us haven't had the opportunity to do a site visit. Looks like she had an amazing day and the shots that he took were beautiful!

              The rooms are separated with a section of wooden louvers, panels that can be opened or shut. This provides a nice balance of foreground / background for getting ready shots!

              This is a completely CANDID moment. It just so happens that Margaret was looking at her flowers and the moment presented itself. The rooms have curtains draped over the beds, which gave us PERFECT shooting conditions, foreground to background...

              The main lobby positions itself perfectly for a silhouette backdrop, here the guys are waiting for the time to lead the guests to the wedding site, a short 2 minute walk away...

              This scene setter shows the setting sun against the forground of the Plapa thingie they use for ceremonies...

              DUSK Light...is so so so important for moody photographs. We usually encourage weddings to start around 1 hour to the scheduled sunset. Read more about del Sol Ceremony start times on Click the image to open in full size.
              Cocktail hour, not sure the name of this spot but its right next to the beach, awesome!!!

              Cocktail hour decorated with a Pinata theme... Again, dusk light is SO crucial for this kind of look.

              This is one of my most favorite shots of the couple (matt and margaret).... WOW, shot right next to the cocktail hour setup on the beach. Beautiful light. I actually shot this on a tripod...wowser.

              La LUNA---love the moon in the background

              I'll post a few more in a new post since my limit is 10 or something like that...

                A few more from the reception setup.. These are great visuals of how things could be.



                Click the image to open in full size.
                here we walk you through their reception setup... Notice the globe details in the background... nice touch. Perhaps hanging a TAD low...

                Click the image to open in full size.
                Table setup looking back at Palapa of Seaside Grill

                Click the image to open in full size.
                A table setup...Obviously, its night time and the ocean would be in the background from this angle looking out of the Seaside Grill (pool foreground is nice layering touch for photos)

                Click the image to open in full size.
                This lounge setup is on the side of the reception area, kinda packed in. Luckily their group was kinda small, less than 25 people I think so this worked well!

                Click the image to open in full size.
                Dance floor setup.. I think each one of those tiles is 4x4 or 5x5, cant remember. Total space of 10x10ish, lets say. Again, i think the globes were hanging a tad too low, for the tall people they were bumping heads with them a little.

                Click the image to open in full size.

                Another scene setter back across the resort, just for a piece of mind to know what the night views look like :)

                ok, hope that helps with your visualization.

                More images from Matt & Margaret's TTD here



                SALUDOS,
