Returned from Wedding with Review and Pics
Posted 27 December 2009 - 03:09 AM
Tathiana was my WC at the Hilton and did a great job. She was very responsive beforehand via emails. I had not met her before we arrived for the wedding. She arranged the flowers from Mazarte Flowers and they were a very close match to the picture I had sent for my bouquet. They were beautiful and just what I wanted. After the wedding, we had a dinner at Fenecia, the Hilton's fine dining restaurant. It was great.
Alonso Aguirre was my solo guitarist. I had requested him because I had heard him play at the Hilton several times before when I was there on vacation. In fact, he played every morning at breakfast while we were there for the wedding. I would highly recommend him if you are looking for a solo guitarist - and he played the songs that my husband had requested.
Rev. Marco Arechiga was our minister and I could not have been more pleased. I had requested him because of other reviews I had read on this Forum and was so pleased that he was able to be there. He was so true and down to earth. He just seemed so sincere that I felt like I had known him for years.
Dino Gomez was our photographer and I was very pleased with our pictures. Attached are just a few that I put on photobucket for you to see, if interested.

Jennifer Hatton made my wedding cake. Not only was it delicious but looked beautiful and was just want I wanted.
Deena from Sweet Dreams made a birthday cake for my husband and delivered it to Edith's, where we had our welcome dinner. She did a great job and the cake looked just like the picture that I had sent to her. She was wonderful to work with, in fact, after she heard how much Edith's was charging for the cutting fee, she dropped her delivery charge.
Edith's was definitely one of the best meals we had. I just can't say enough about how wonderful and fun it was.
We did a snorkeling trip with Sunrider Adventures. I had been already a couple of times and really had fun. I emailed the owner, Mario, and negotiated a little better rate than what he had offered me. Once again, it was another fun time - and as a bonus, we all got to see whales.
We had dinner at La Panga in San Jose Del Cabo and I have to say, that it was the worst meal that we had during our stay. We ate at Mi Casa in Cabo twice during our stay and it was wonderful each time.
Regarding airport transfers for my guests, I ended up using a company called Lifestyles. I contacted about 5 different companies and they offered me the best rate after a little negotiating. They were very professional and polite and there were absolutely no complaints. Some of the other companies wanted a wire transfer for payment beforehand, however, Lifestyle accepted credit cards for payment beforehand, which we were more comfortable with.
I gave OOT bags to our guests (one per room) and everyone went on and on about how much they liked them and the contents. I got the bags on sale at Walmart at the end of the summer for $5.00. They were nice sized beach bags and I got different colors. I got star fish beach towels from Bed Bath and Beyond for the ladies for $7.99 and had Cabo San Lucas, Mexico embroidered on them, with our wedding date on them, as well. I got the guys their favorite sports team towels, which was a big hit. They all got travel mugs, along with the First Aid Kit that I copied from other brides on this Forum. The ladies received pashminas that I bought from a vendor on this Forum. I also added some freebies that I got from Vista Print, such as baseball caps, magnets, sticky notes, calendars, mouse pads, pens, etc. I don't have pics of the bags and contents now, but hopefully will a little later.
The end results were all positive. I would highly recommend all of the vendors that I used.
Last but not least, I would like to thank all of you ladies for helping me plan my dream wedding. It wouldn't have been so perfect if I had not have found this Forum. Thank you all so very, very much!!
