    Do you and your fiance count in the "price per head"? And does the photographer?

      I believe that everyone including the bride and groom are counted in the head count yes.

       

      Our photogs were there almost all day and I wanted them to be able to eat too! They had a little table off to the side where they could sit and eat, set their stuff down etc.

        Good to know; I was worried about this too!  Only 78 days until I'll be married at Las Caletas!!  Woo-hoo!  Is this about the time I should be contacting Kelley to work out the details??

So in my opinion from March - june you should be just fine because there is more day light. Might be a good idea to move it up from oct-feb.

          She was the one that suggested it to us when I asked her about the time of sunset.  We did have a Sunday wedding though so no one else was at caletas.  I am guessing that is why it was so easy.  But it seemed like the sunset was earlier than 7.  I think you can look online at sunset time and find them specifically.  Even with moving up the ceremony an hour I felt rushed with the pics because we were quickly running out of sunlight.  If you want to check out my professional pics email me and I will give you the website and password.  You can see what the sun was light right after the ceremony.

          Right now we have our photographer coming early (around 3 before all the guests arrive) to shoot just the 2 of us and wedding party, and then we'll do family and sunset photos after the ceremony.

            We planned it maybe a month or two before the wedding date.

            I e-mailed Kelley about moving my ceremony up an hour and she said that she will do her best to accomodate me but it just depends on how many tours she has scheduled for that day.  How far in advance did Kelley give you the okay regarding moving your ceremony forward?  Also, I just thought I would mention that Kelley said sundown is about 7:00 pm this time of year.

             

            Thanks again,

            Nicole

              Woohoo!  Just talked with Kelley...time to get started getting the details worked out.  So many decisions to make.  One month to go!

                  Hi ladies, So I will be getting married this time next year : Jan. 14th 2012. So I took the platinum package which holds a max of 80 guests.Well, I figured I'd have about 60-65 guests but just sent out my save the dates and see that I might just have all 80!! anyhoo, I was wondering if anyone has ever had a wedding past the 70 count? My concerns is does the plae feel crowded with so many people? How are the chairs set up in sand after?

                   

                  Also Is it too early to start looking for a wedding photographer? Is the one that is included in wedding package any good? Are they professionals and if so where can I see their work?

                   

                  Thanks ladies.

                   

                  SheriB congrats on starting the wedding planning must be soo exciting!!

                     We had 55 and it was sort of tight at dinner.  Im not sure how kelley sets up for larger weddings.  Look for a photographer!  They seem to book up fast.  I think there is a list on this thread. I remember posting what kelley sent to me but I dont have it anymore.
