    The cost for DJ equipment wasn't included in our contract, but I believe Luis originally quoted us $800 for the evening. Hope this helps and hope you get your contract soon. I would be going crazy at this point.

      Well, I'm just going with the flow. Eventually I'm sure he will send me everything! I did email him today and remind him the wedding was 5 weeks away and I haven't paid a deposit, etc.

      Did you guys get your contract worked out?

        We received the contract, but it had tons of errors in it. Things Luis told us were included appeared with a charge. We had to go through it line by line and make corrections which our travel agent presented to him today. We will see how it goes.

        How many guests are attending your wedding? I was wondering what kind of rates he quoted to you in person. With the resort not having a set of wedding packages it is difficult to determine what we should or shouldn't be getting.

          We're going to bring our own dj (a close friend), but rent the equipment there. The estimate we got from Luis on just renting the equipment was $500...

            We got everything on Thursday and Friday. There were a good bit of errors, but Luis was VERY quick to update the documents several times and send them right back.

            The quotes price wise were pretty good as compared to my last resort. We didn't find any surprises. Our DJ equipment is $700, but we have a lot of equipment, our DJ spins at a bar at the W Hotel in Atlanta so he is fairly high tech.

            Let me know what you guys need to know. We have 24 guests coming.

              Here's a link to some of our wedding photos. Mostly ceremony and beginning of reception.

                  How was your experience overall? Any warnings for the rest of us?

                    I just came across this forum and decided to put in my two cents. My husband and I got married here on November 12, 2009 and had the wedding of our dreams! Of course, the road to the perfect wedding was pretty bumpy because the wedding coordinator we were originally working with stopped working there about four months before the wedding. In the end everything came together and was beautiful. I will post more later tonight including some pictures if anyone is interesed.

                      Hi ladies,
                      I am really interested in any information you all can provide about weddings at HTR. When I was looking at resorts a few months ago, I really loved this one but thought that it might be too expensive...it was hard to figure out the costs since there weren't any set packages and the documents that Luis sent me were rather confusing!

                      Anyway...I ended up putting a deposit down at the Royal in PDC which is a great resort but their wedding department has been pretty shady with price and policy changes without notice or explanation. FI and I are just not getting a good feeling about having our wedding with them anymore.

                      Long story short, I found this thread and between what I've read here and Ash's great pictures...I am very seriously considering switching to HTR if we can make it work.
                      I emailed Luis again but haven't heard back so any insight you ladies can provide about how your events were set up etc would be GREAT.

                      Sorry for the essay here but I'm sure you all can relate to how crazy planning a DW can feel!!!

                      -Becky
