        Does anyone know the true cost of having a legal ceremony (as opposed to symbolic) at DRC?  I can see the costs on their website, but it is confusing to me.  Anyone have info?  Thanks!

          I just ordered a pair of shoes for my reception that I think are so unique.  I found a vendor on etsy.com that will hand paint your shoe to match whatever you want.  I am having her incoporate the color of my bridesmaids dresses and starfish.  Just thought I would share if you are looking for something different.

            Alison,

            So what did your guests do while you were getting your photos done, before the cocktail hour? We are also having our reception on the deck in front of the infinity pool but I was told that I can't have a dj. So we have to settle for the sound system, which I'm fine with...but what other lighting would they have since the sound system tech probably doesn't bring any.

              Very beautiful pics....do you have a ceremony script your willing to share, please...

              The sun set between 7:30 and 8:00 when we were there.  It was very bright at 5 during our ceremony and we were squinting...esp my husband. LOL...but about 6 was PERFECT for the beach..even the photogrpaher said so.  I am not sure how it will be when you go though...sun will set earlier.  The ceremony is less than a half hour...so I think you will have time to do some beach.  They do it really quickly!  Do the beach first and then get some family shots inside.

                    The guests just sat and talked and had some drinks in the lobby.  They started the cocktail hour while we were finishing pics.  That is so weird...why can't u have a DJ????  I never heard that!  The set up on the deck comes with the spotlights that we had.  The DJ didn't bring any lighting.
