    Jenny Penny! so exciting!!! yay!!!

    Ya definitely felt rushed! it's nice to get a bunch of pics the day of the wedding, luckily we did TTD the next day with the entire wedding group so we had a few more pics than we would have.

    as for the heat...i was worried about it...DH even bought 2 extra shirts so he could change throughout the day if he sweated through a shirt...and he didn't even need to change once, and he had a suit jacket! when we were there...early March...about 2:30 everyday it started to get windy...it definitely kept us all cool, which was nice. but make sure you pin your bangs down if they are long, other wise they'll drive you nuts! lol and your vail will blow like no other! lol

    i finally got some wedding pics today so i'll post a few of the cake and gazebo and stuff so you can see :)

      yaaa!! I'd love to see your pics!!!

      Im soooo worried....because we dont really have room in our budget to bring our own photog... :S I hate to rely on the hotel photographer (some are scary right?) and I know some of our guests are pretty talented but they certainly aren't pros...

      Idk...

        @ jenny: did you subscribe in that other thread about gran bahia? there is a girl (I think from canada too), she recommends a fotographer who would pay his/her own stay and flight and charge for the pictures only... this girl (name: tim-jules) was very happy with her choice.... maybe its really a good deal, you should look at it:

        @ kerri: thanks again for the info... now I only need to convince my fianc© to begin with the ceremony a little earlier... I dont want to regret later that this special day was over too fast because we chose a later time :-(

                  Alright! i have a few key pics on photobucket ready to share!! it's soooo hard to not post a gazillion! lol

                  This is the looooong and beautiful walk way to the gazebo. you can hear the steel drum band the whole walk which is really nice. we had about 50 guests, which all fit in to the tiny area comfortably!

                  A closer up shot of us int he gazebo during the ceremony. Make sure you find out what the script is...the one Rev. Owen Watson had was terrible, we wrote our entire thing, so was much better.
                  We had our wedding party in the gazebo and choose to have our parents sitting up top near us too for optium viewing! lol

                  Pic of the steel drum band during the champagne toast. they were to the right of the gazebo and were a great touch, worth the bucks!

                  the cake...so beautiful!

                  The dinner in Dolce vita was perfect for 50 of us, could easily fit more if they arranged the tables differently. was small enough for speaches to be heard easily too as there is no mic allowed.

                  Trash the Dress Day!! so fun!

                  my pic in my signature of the garter toss, is at the gazebo...there are 3 or 4 steps to this level, which is where our parents sat on the sides, and then the step up to where we were for the ceremony and where the dance was. so fun!

                  i think that is a pic of each detail...any special pic requests, just let me know!

                  and i didn't realize there was another active GBP thread, awesome!!! maybe i'll check it out too.

                  have fun!
