    Hi Everyone!

    I am just back from my November 21 wedding at the Hilton Los Cabos. I'm heading for my honeymoon tomorrow, but I wanted to post a quick review since everyone has been so helpful to me. I will try to provide a more detailed review later.

    Hilton Los Cabos: Absolutely fabulous! The food was delicious and the service throughout the trip and of course during the wedding was fantastic. The wedding coordinator Tathiana was very responsive and extremely helpful.

    Juan Carlos Tapia (Photographer): Juan Carlos was very easy to work with and seems like he really takes care in what he does. I obviously don't have the pictures yet, but so far we really liked working with him. He is not cheap, but my DH and I think the pics will be worth the extra money. Juan Carlos was very cooperative, especially considering I accidentally overpaid him and missed our first meeting with him. He was accomodating and understanding despite our own mishaps. Whoops.

    Suzanne Morel: Suzanne Morel's staff was timely and responsive. The hair and makeup for me and my friends turned out really great. They also worked pretty quickly, which was nice. I needed a last minute nail fill and they were also really cooperative.

    DJ Richie: DJ Richie was also fantastic to work with. He was extremely responsive, had all the music we needed, and did a great job MC-ing the wedding. He was also really fast when people made requests, which is nice for drunk guests with short attention spans.

    Gilda Badillo: We used Gilda as our photographer for our trash the dress session because she was cheaper than Juan Carlos. She was fun to work with and seems experienced with TTDs. She had us take pictures in some beautiful settings. The only drawback was that some of the positions she wanted us in required to look almost directly into the sun so we were squinting hard. It would have been nice to either have us positioned differently or for her to have advised us to schedule the photo session for a time where the sun would not be directly in our eyes.

    Cabo Flowers: The flowers we received were pretty good. Not fantastic. My bouquet of lilies turned out to be a different color than I wanted. They were more chocolatey purple than pinky purple. I can't say I was terribly surprised b/c when I showed her the picture of the exact bouquet I wanted, she showed me these chocolatey lilies. She assured me that they were the same ones as in the photo or they could dye others. I don't know if she forgot or what exactly happened. My bouquet wasn't an ugly color, just not the right color. Some of the cala lillies also started falling apart before the reception even started. The other flowers looked very nice though.

    More details later. Also, feel free to PM me if you have any specific questions. I'm happy to help. I'll be on my honeymoon for a couple of weeks, but I will respond when I return.

            Thank you, Connie, and congratulations! My wedding is less than 3 weeks away at the Hilton and it's nice to know that all went well. Tathiana is also my WC. I haven't met her but she's been very responsive to my emails. Can't wait to see your pictures.
