    why don't you just say he is a guest of the wedding and pay for the daily fee for him? say he's a family friend who is a photographer

      ssapper- Thanks for the heads up. We have a few outside vendors like Fernandeo Fuentes and Ew Events as our outoutside vendors for our wedding on 12.10.2011. Not a happy camper with the resort!!!

       

      6 kids & 19 Adults + Bride & Groom booked

I'm devastated about this as I was really hoping to use an outside photographer for my wedding. I've been trying to get a response from Ana in regards to this new outside vendor policy but she has been avoiding the question. I'm going to try and call her this afternoon to get an official in writing response.

       

      Just wanted to give everyone a heads up. Has anyone else had problems with this recently???

       

      Thanks!

        Ssapper: Have you heard from Ana on this matter yet? I was thinking of using EW for my flowers.

            Hey My Lovely's,

             

            We're back from an AMAZING stay and wedding at DRC.  Honestly, the entire trip was a dream.  We arrived and immeditely after giving our names at check in, the ushered us to VIP check in at the Preferred Club where we were upgraded from Ocean View to a Ocean Front Honeymoon Suite.  We were able to see so many weddings and had a fabulous view (Room 2301).  The romantic dinner on the beach (included in the Ultimate Package) was to die for.  Veronica was our WC and she was phenomenal to work with.  EVERYTHING that I asked for was nailed for the wedding. I honestly cannot say enough about her.  I used EW Cancun for our outside vendor and Raff was also a dream to work with.  We traveled down with 34 guests and they are all still talking about the "happy high" they are still on from their stay there.  The food was good, rooms great, resort is kept immaculate and they honestly made me feel like a princess the entire 10 days that we were there. I got to meet Lisa and Lindsay a few times and I believe Ursula quickly when we were leaving Desires on our wedding night. They were GORGEOUS brides and so lovely to chat with. All my girls were happy with the job that the salon did on their hair and we had a MAC makeup artist fly down to do all of our make up.  The entire wedding day went off flawlessly and it truly was magical.  I don't get on here nearly as often as I would like to but I know hearing feedback from past brides always made me feel better especially in the final weeks leading up to May 8th for our wedding.  Good luck to future DRC brides and I can say without hesitation, based on our wedding, you can choose this resort for your wedding with confidence.  Here are the slideshows for our wedding and the TTD. Elina from the resort shot both :-)

                    Melissa: Congrats! You had great weather and your pics look beautiful!

                     

                    I have a question: What services did EW provide you with? I am really considering using them for my centerpeices and renting from them their poles with lanterns and just getting the rest of the flowers (bouquets, boutinnaires, ceremony centerpeices) from DRC since they are included in the package. What do you recommend?

                     

                    Thanks!

                      Congratulations Melissa.  Your pictures are beautiful.  And I loved your TTD shoot.  You looked amazing.  The flower girls were sooo cute. Thanks for sharing.
