        For those of you who hired the videographer from Vallarta Adventures... did you like the video? Was it a normal video with people talking or was it just background music the whole time?  I've been looking at samples and I'm not liking the music only videos.. but wasn't sure if that was for a different reason.

            Hi Everyone!  I just got back from my wedding in LC!!!!  Amazingly Epic.  Wowowowowow, that place is just gorgeous!!  I'll do a more in depth review in the coming weeks but a few highlights:

             

            Kelley = AMAZING.  I met Denisse who is one of the girls taking over for her and she is good....learning from the master, which is a lot to learn.

             

            Joel for hair/makeup - AMAZING.  Him and his helper don't speak much English so I brought photos of the makeup and hair I wanted.  They said they wanted to change it a little bit to make it more interesting which I was fine with.  Both turned out WAYYYY better than I ever anticipated and all my girls were very very happy with the way theirs turned out.  Very different styles of hair that complimented everyone.  If you are specifically SET on a certain picture for hair, you may hesitate using him but it will turn out fabulous regardless.  Kelley said Joel is on a trial period so she is taking feedback from the girls and will decide to put him on payroll or find someone else.

             

            Elizabeth Lloyd Photography - I never thought a photographer could be so cool.  She was seriously awesome and didn't put down her camera all night.  Between her and her asst, they took over 7K photos which is WAYYYYY more photos than most take.  The elements were far too interesting to put the camera down.

             

            Cloudless Weddings (from San Diego) - we flew them down because we couldn't pass up not having video of our wedding.  SO happy we had them there and they captured everything going on.  It's their first wedding season so their prices are cheap and they do amazing work.  I would highly highly recommend using them.....I should have a first edit of one of the videos by Thxgiving.

             

            It was a beautiful day while we were getting ready and hanging out, until we started to take photos with the bridesmaids and I noticed dark clouds moving in.  It started to rain right after the First Look with my FI and then it rained most of the night, which honesty made for an even better time.  It's warm rain and and it's only water.  No one cared.  It made it for an even more unique setting.  Our photographer took us out on the swimming dock about 100 feet or so from the beach and we took photos out there and had our own dance party for like 10 mins while all our of guests were watching.  It rained through the ceremony and dinner/speeches but stopped during the first dance, father/daughter, mother/son, sky lanterns we brought, garter/bouquet toss, rained more for the dance party, stopped again for the fire dances, and rained until we got back on the boat.    Boat ride back was epic....that's all I can say.

             

            I made Kelley arrange for us to stop at Pepe's Tacos after we got back to the Marina so they had 2 tables for our 55 guests to eat tacos at.  So delicious and the staff was all so nice.  We finally made it back to Dreams at 2:30!!! Ahhh, can't wait to share all the pics with you guys.

                Does anyone have contact info for Joel if I want to do a trial when I'm down in PV in November?
