I brought my table runners and chair sashes but did everything else through the resort.
We went with DJ Mauricio Neri and he was awesome! He also did our music for the ceremony. We met with him on Thursday afternoon and we gave him a list of songs for the ceremony and he also took good notes on his computer. We also have him a list of songs we wanted to play at the reception and then just told him to play similar music when that list ran out.
The two nights before our wedding it rained so at 3 on our wedding day Yamina came in and asked if we wanted to move the reception to the ballroom. I couldnâ€™t decide because I didnâ€™t want to move it inside but I also didnâ€™t want it to rain. I told her to go ask Luke (my husband) and that he could make the final decision. He wanted it outside so we decided to keep it outside. I am so happy that we did because the weather was perfect. It was windy but it didnâ€™t rain. The following 3 nights the weather wasnâ€™t good so we got really lucky!
The service at the resort was amazing and we originally booked the honeymoon suite and they upgraded us to the Master suite which was awesome. Here is my slideshow.
Also, if anyone is interested, my husband condensed our wedding video so he could put it on facebook and show it to our friends and family so here is the link to that.
The first part of the video is a little cheesy because it is a generic but the rest of it is great. The first song that they are playing (when everyone is first getting there)we didnâ€™t pick but the rest of the songs are the songs that we picked during the times that they played them. The video was just running a little slow on my computer but it might be my internet connection. The actual video runs smooth.
If you have any questions let me know!!
Did the hotel provide the officiant? I'm so concerned about being able to understand the person clearly!
