    I am sold on the horses now! Tris where did you get them from? Those shots turned out fantastic.  I love the peacock ones too.  Where was the peacock?  He seemed just fine with you both getting so close!

      Stunning pics from both of you, Tris and Katelynn! Looks like you had fabulous photographers to capture all of your amazing moments!  And the resort looks beautiful in the pictures! Cannot wait to be there!

       

      Love the peacock too! Such a fun touch!

       

      Another exciting thing - I was under the impression that the kettle drums band was just going to be one or two guys with kettle drums alone!!! I had no idea they were a full band with drums and guitar!! And I was willing to pay the $400 before! Now this seems like a fabulous deal!  So exciting!

        Thanks so much everyone! If I miss anyone's questions

         

        The horses were at a placed "Chukka", it was pretty close to GBP on the to Ochos Rios. It was $74 for 2 horses for about 30 min. They do guided tours there as well, and charge around $80 per person, so we thought it was a pretty good deal. We brought our driver in with us and he helped us negotiate with the people there as well.

         

        The peacock's name is "George". He was at Mahoe falls right at the entrance. We couldn't believe how friendly he was, and then they told us he was their pet at the falls. We could touch him and everything, he was so friendly and a HUGE show off (as you can tell). Mahoe falls was $5 per person to get in. It wasn't as elaborate as Dunn's, but it was perfect for photos. I'd still reccommend checking Dunn's out, it was awesome, but we didn't want strangers in our pics.

         

        My centerpieces were made using plastic pasta containers that I wrapped ribbon around (I wasn't bringing glass vases down with me). I bought summersiable turquoise lights, placed them in the bottom, along with a bit of shells & beady things then filled them with water. The two side ones are fake white flowers glue gunned into a ball with white feathers and the middle, tall one is a fake call lily that is inside these really cool balls I found at Michaels. The runners were burlap type material from JYSK. The candles, I brought all my own and rolled them up in DH's & my clothes to keep them safe.


        The steel drum band was awesome. Worth every penny of that money. They created such a beautiful mood and entertained everyone before & after.

          The Gazebo was a lot of fun...it was also nice as it was private and just our group and we were also able to do a first dance.

           

          We got an extra layer added to the cake so it was 3 tiers and it was like $40 or something. We had 45 people so we wanted to make sure everyone got a piece. We got vanilla and it was amazing! one of the groomsman actually had like 6 pieces all together, lol!!

           

          I ordered the flowers from Jans to put on the cake as I wanted some colour on it, I think she charged me like $40 for flowers for the cake and for some little ones to throw on the tables.

            Tekeya - We had the band for the ceremony. Our ceremony was at 6pm so by 7 it was dark :) And I brought my own centerpieces with me.

              Wow such amazing photos Tris!! You must be so happy with how they turned out.

               

              I just have a couple questions for you:

               

              - When did you finally receive confirmation of your restaurant? My wedding is exactly two months today and I was hoping to confirm the table/seating charts soon.

              - I am also wondering what the candles look like that are supplied by the resort? Chandlyn said she was going to send a photo but I just wanted to make sure I buy ones that look the same so I can utalize what they have there. I loved your centre pieces!! Did you get them to dim the lights for the dinner? I am hoping to get a really romantic feel by having lots of votives on the guest tables and tall candles at the head table.

              - Do you have any suggestions of ways to display table seating charts now that you have seen the facilities?

               

              Love your shirts by the way!! Did someone give them to you as a gift?

                Hey Tris,
                I just wanted to say, your wedding pictures are absolutely AMAZING!!! I'm completely jealous of how photogenic you guys are :) You had an awesome photographer.  I can only hope our pictures turn out half as good!!
                I do have a question for you thoughif you don't mind, where did you get Kai's suit? We are looking at ordering one for FI soon and cannot decide on what we both like but after sitting down together looking at your pictures we both agreed on the look of his suit. I love how you had the bright colored shirts on the guys and the bridesmaids dresses are gorgeous!!
