Las Caletas Couples ~ POST HERE!!! (**All LC Brides...PLEASE READ 1st post, red text)

Recommended Posts

It's never too early to look for a photographer! They book fast! I, personally, am flying one in from Dallas who I met on here. His name is Jared Rey and he posted in the vendors section as he is trying to get into destination weddings and had done one in Cabo that was gorgeous! The website for the "in-house" photographer is http://www.adventureweddingsphoto.com/ I think they are actually pretty good and have good pricing, and I just noticed that they offer trash the dress sessions, which I did not see they did before. Eva Sica from photoshoots vallarta is supposed to be good and had good prices. http://www.photoshootsvallarta.com/ or http://www.tande.mx/ Nate Broshot has done a lot of weddings there too and has awesome photos. I have also hear of Paulina Ulloa, Jillian Mitchell, and Michelle Turner.

 

As for the number of guests, I am getting worried too....people are replying yes and our guest list is growing and I think we will have at least 60 at this point.....but who knows, a lot of people haven't officially booked yet but are planning to this month. I asked Kelley about the max number of people at a table, and she said 8-10. I think ChicagoPT posted some table set up charts of her wedding.

SheriB, how exciting for you to finally start the planning stages with Kelley. I have been gathering a lot of pictures and information to get ready for the time when Kelley finally contacts me for planning.

Hi Las Caletas brides!!  I am Jen from California and my wedding is all set for May 1, 2011.  You have all been so helpful and give amazing advice.  I think most of my questions are answered at this moment, but I am still deciding on the photographer.  Does anyone know a lot about the photographer they provide?  Do they have two people to shoot both me early and my wedding party coming over on the boat?  Why did you ladies decide to go with someone else?

 

Also, what is included for the tables?  White tablecloths?  Are the runners extra?  Thanks for your help!!

 Hi Jen_Matt,

 

I am getting married the day before you!  101 days for me, 102 for you!  I am flying in my photographer Cassandra McDaniel  from Savannah, because she is a dear friend and does amazing work, and I couldn't imagine getting married without her shooting it.  Beth Lloyd and Nathanial Thompson have both shot a lot at Caletas and their pictures are gorgeous. I think with both of them you have the option of hiring a second shooter so there is one with you and one with the guests.  Happy planning!

I am using Nate Broshot www.licensetostill.com.  He has worked at Las Caletas several times before.  He is bringing a second for the wedding day as well.  The total package for us will be around $3500 including two photographers for 7 hrs on the wedding day, the TTD, 2 hrs rehearsal dinner, his flights, a per diem and hotel.  He comes from Seattle but used to live in PV.  I have seen some of his LC work and love it and he was a lot more affordable than many of the others I contacted.

Happy planning!

Hello Ladies, I am new on here and learning so much already. I have booked LC for January 25, 2012. I went to LC for a day trip back in 2009 and fell in love with it!!! I am sooo excited already and it is still a year away. I have some questions for past brides or current, about hair and make up. Who did you book and how did it work, did you have to arrange for them to get over to LC or did Kelley do that for you??? I know it's not for awhile, but I'm already stressing about that. :S I'm a crazy planner and want everything in place and booked as early as I can because if I don't I end up waiting until the last minute!!! I am open to any useful information and others experiences!!! Thanks Ladies!!!!

Kya,

 

Take some time to read through this thread, there is a lot of talk in here about Fernando who does hair/make up for LC weddings and can be hired through Kelly!

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
    • I think you should approach the dentist. That would be the best idea as of now.
