Chris Lee is still at te resort. I've friended him on Facebook and am keep track of his work. The photos on the Arrecrife Facebook page are good enough - and I'm pretty sure most of the ones I post are from Chris. When I see one I really like I usually ask her the photographer was.

 

I've already booked Chris for my wedding day to be sure I get him. When I connected with him on Facebook he said he'd be happy to talk to me before my wedding day to get idea of the types of photos I'd like.

 

Does Chris Lee have a seperate Facebook page from Arrecife? If so, how did you search for him or can you send me his link? THANK YOU!!!

Does anyone know if you can book the photographer for your reception too? I have an earlier wedding so it would be okay if he left and did other weddings in the mean time, but I was hoping to maybe get some sunset photographs, photos during dinner, and maybe when we do the sky lantern thing.  HELP! :D

The stress is building for me with this planning! I was booked for may 19, 2014 for a 4pm but due to flights it ended up not working and I guess the whole week is booked for weddings so I couldn't change the date. I decided on October 23, 2014 and donalee emailed me back confirming October 24, 2014.. Lol I think it's best at this point to just call them at this point? Has anyone called and spoken to them before?

During the week we were there they set up tables and chairs beside the one poolbar close to the smaler buffet so that is the one we went to after our dinner on our wedding night.  There was no one else there so it worked out perfectly.  We did also go to the lobby bar between our pictures and dinner (our dinner wasn't ready on time) and had a few drinks there.

I initally had trouble with dates as well.  We wanted to get married on Jan.12 but was told it was unavailable, so we booked for the 11th.  But then our flights changed days so we couldn't get married on the 11th and instead had to get married on the 13th (which was Friday the 13!).  In the end it all worked out fine, but I did end up calling them when I needed to urgently change our date due to flight changes.

Yes I call them a few times. It is a lot easier.

Temple I'm glad your date was moved. I hate may 19. It's bad luck. My dad and brother both died on that day. I didn't wanna say anything but now that your date moved I wanted to tell you what a Shitty date that is

Thank you :)

We brought a CD and they played it.  You can list which track you want for the MOH and then for yourself.  They don't have an Ipod dock that I know of.  We used Bach's Cello Suite and just let it play from the minute my MOH walked down and then to me.  It was so beautiful - have a listen to it on Youtube

 

Just wondering...how many songs need to be on there for the pre-ceremony?  Do they want 15 minutes? 30 minutes? An hour?  Or did you just load a bunch of songs on there...and noted which song you wanted to walk down to and the changed the music when it was time?

    • Hi Brides! I have a Wally Bag - 66" available - $90 + shipping (US only) The wally bag typically sells for $120-$180. I used this gown bag once to transport my dress from MN to Mexico for our wedding - IT WAS PERFECT!   I was actually able to pack 4 additional maxi dresses, and my husband's wedding attire, plus a few pairs of shoes and some jewelry. I packed the dress the night before we left, and just moments before we left, I zipped the bag and folded it - ready for travel. It comes up with a nice over-the-shoulder strap, making it really easy to carry through the airports. No issues on Delta with the bag as my carry-on - I chose to put in the overhead bin, but the flight attendant did offer to hang it in the closet for me. Once we got to the resort, about 10 hours after I first folded the bag, I unpacked the bag and my dress was perfect - no wrinkles! My dress was mostly lace and had a bit of a train, but it arrived perfectly!  Honestly, this is the best way to travel with your dress! 
    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well.
