Mrs. S!! So crazy that I actuallly met you while we were filming on our tour. We were so impressed and book for next July! Yamina is my planner and so far has been fabulous. It is such a relief to know your wedding went off without a hitch! We have all the same things you did, 6 pm north beach, north jacuzzi cocktail, and pool deck. Did you find it was really humid for your reception or was there a nice sea breeze? We're so excited and it was great to meet you!! Congrats! Where did you honeymoon?

I bought personalized napkins for the cocktail hour and reception but they were left on the bar tables and hardly used. They couldnâ€™t leave them on the tables because it was too windyâ€¦I would have done without thoses. I bought chair sashes for the ceremony and they moved them to the reception chairs for no extra cost. I had high heels for the reception on the deck and there was no problems. I also bought high flip flop wedges for later on at night. We had the smaller lighted dance floor and it was a little tight for us. We were 23 and all love to dance so it was a tiny bit on the tight side. My oot (out of town) bags were a huge hit!!! Totally happy I did those.
FYIâ€¦.Ana never wrote anything down when I asked her for special requests and this had worried me a littleâ€¦..she got every single thing that I asked for correct. I was super specific with how I wanted everything to look and she did it perfectly. I was super pleased.
