      Hi Everyone,

       

      I was searching for a Calgary brides thread and couldn't find this one until now...yay!  I am looking for a place to have our AHR in the Calgary area but I have a caterer friend who is going to do the food so I'm having a hard time finding an outdoor place that isn't too expensive!  Any suggestions?

        Hey Girls

         

        Well I'm home and have been catching up on sleep.  Wow that week sure flew by!!!  I'm really wishing that we took a couple of extra days but really didn't want to "honeymoon" with my mom

         

        Our resort was perfect, everyone loved it!!!  Holguin is beautiful and the beaches are to die for!!!

         

        the first day after we arrived rain which was OK cause it gave us time to get settled.  the next couple of days were cloudy so we took the opportunity to explore the area.  We met with the wedding coordinator's the day before our wedding and went over every detail including plan B in case of the weather.  They girls were so nice and very accommodating.  the morning of our wedding the weather was iffy and very windy so we went with plan b.   the ceremony was gorgeous, pretty quick and very simple!!  After we had champagne and appies, then photos.  I can not say enough about our photographer.  She had so much energy and kept the day moving smoothly.  Can't wait to get her pics!!  We had a wonderful dinner.  Everyone had a choice of Lobster, chicken, steak or pasta.  Most went for the lobster which was fantastic!!  Our cake was enormous and soooo good.  I had to have a second piece. 

         

        I have to say our TTD was sooo much fun and was so happy that we did it!!!  We met our photographer at sunrise on the beach.  It was a bit cloudy but had great lighting.  We did some pics on the beach than moved to a couple of spots on the resort.  We ended with the shots of us in the ocean.  So much fun!!!!  We were soaked and covered in sand.  When we picked people up at another resort on the way to the airport they had heard about me in the ocean in my wedding dress.  I was thankful that we did it so early in the morning so that there wasn't that much of an audience. 

         

        The whole group did a catamaran day trip and loved it!!!  We went to 2 reefs for snorkeling and then had a lunch.  It was perfect to get away with everyone cause Dan and I were feeling that we were being pulled in all directions or that we hadn't had a chance to see some people so this gave us the opportunity to do that. 

         

        to wrap things up Dan and I got first class on the flight to Toronto.  It was just what we needed after a long day and week!! 

         

        I will try to post some pics not sure if I can but I will see what I can do

         

        Hope you all had a great week

         

        Linds


        Looking to share a photographer the middle of Feb 2011 in Holguin Cuba
