ERC did provide the centerpieces our reception. I had a specific vision in my head of how I wanted it to look and the WC at the time (Ramon) actually was able to hunt down a couple of the large cylindrical vases for me and didn't charge me any extra. This was only because he knew they had them from a wedding recently and offered them but they don't typically have them. I looked at outside vendors and felt that what ERC could provide (with my specific vision in mind) would be great. We didn't do anything with the gazebo but I'm assuming you're talking about the palapa on the beach? The reason I'm saying that is because there is an actual gazebo on the property that you can use to get married but we wanted to have our ceremony on the beach. ERC provided all decorations for that as well. We wanted the starfish along the aisle and they provided the sheer curtains that draped around the palapa as well as the chair covers. I wanted to keep it very clean, chic & modern so I wasn't interested in a ton of different decorations, so it made it fairly easy for me. We met with the WC the day before the wedding to choose how we wanted the reception to be set up (including the black tablecloth/white linens/flower arrangements/bouquets. I'm the type of person that does not like to leave thing until last minute, but in this situation, we had to. It all worked out and I was thrilled with how the ceremony, cocktail hour and reception turned out! The only things I brought as far as "decorations" were the placecards, postcards and a little folded foamboard with some pics of us and directions to fill out the postcards ("Advice for the Bride & Groom"). Hope that helps! Let me know if you have any other questions.
