Just a question:  Is a song that is 3:25 in length going to be long enough for my MOH and myself to walk down the aisle for the gazebo?  Or should I pick two songs?

And the temperatures here have been so nice!  Today was 13 degrees!!  I guess 30 is still better then 13, but it could be much worse!

      I was wondering what you thought of the resort photos? did you pick 5? we found there were barely enough good ones to even try to pick 5 but we did get a couple of good ones. when are you getting your photos?

        Hi GBP2012,

         

        Did you get any confirmation from Roan and did you put a deposit down? After booking him for our wedding he just gave me details on how to send the money; no contract, no confirmation.

        We have just booked Roan as well and he has been fabulous! We are getting married in March and I have procrastinated HUGE! He also has videography packages as well which is nice. You do not have to hire a different photographer and a videographer!

          Hi CdnBeatPrincess,

           

          I heard back from Donnalee today (I cc her when I emailed Chandlyn, can't believe it took less then 12 hrs for a reply) and her response to my question about a fee for using Rashel for my hair and makeup was....If Rashel will only be doing your hair and make-up and not stay for the ceremony, there will be no additional fee. However, if she will be staying until the ceremony, you will be required to purchase the wedding pass for her.  Now when she says wedding pass I am assuming the $20 for an additional person but I think I will verify that to make sure.

           

          I'll let you know if I get anymore info, hope this helps :)

          Please post what Chandyln says about vendor fee. I'm interested in using Rashel as well.

           

          Thanks :)

            Hi Belledame,

             

            I was actually going to post a question on here regarding Roan and his emails. I received an email from him that said in order to confirm and hold the date a 25-40% deposit would need to be sent. I was going to send him the very minimal money transfer but it makes me a little nervous. Have you done anything to secure him for your wedding date?

              Hi Jodiann,

              Did you already send a deposit to Roan?

              He has asked for a 25-40% in order to secure our wedding date. It makes me a little nervous sending him money so I just wanted to see if any other brides have yet and if you received any confirmation or paperwork after you gave him a deposit.

              If you could let me know that would be wonderful.

              Thanks!

His website is roanphotography.com  So far he has been great through email and when requesting information on prices and everything else. I have high hopes for our day =)
