    First off, I apologize for my late review. It seemed I blinked and the wedding had come and gone and wow its already January!

    DREAMS LOS CABOS GOLF RESORT AND SPA: A+++
    The resort was absolutely breathtaking and exceeded my expectations and more. We spent the wedding week at Dreams and planned to switch to the Riu Palace for our honeymoon. We spent the night at the Riu and after being so impressed with Dreams we switched back! The Riu was such an oversized resort and couldn’t compare to the personal service and all the little things at Dreams that came standard!
    From the airport we took a limo to Dreams where we were greeted with champagne, cool towels, the friendliest staff. From there on it proceeded to be one of the best times of my life. All of our guests could not say enough good things either about the resort, the food and the staff.
    Our rooms were all amazing as well; beautiful d©cor, amazing views and to top it all off the turndown service. I all I can really say is that Dreams just went above and beyond to make every day of our stay was special.

    MARIANA (DREAMS WEDDING COORDINATOR): A+++
    Wow, what to say about Mariana, through the entire process of the wedding she was there and didn’t miss a beat! Our wedding day went flawlessly and everything I requested through a year of planning was there set up perfectly. She even added special touches to the things that I forgot. Mariana took all the stress off of me when we arrived and let me enjoy my vacation and visit with friends and family as she confirmed all the arrangements for the wedding day. I couldn’t have asked for a more professional, experienced, and caring wedding planner for my day! Thank you so much Mariana!

    REV MARCO THROUGH DREAMS RESORT: A++
    I had a few different ceremony reading to choose from and when I read #4 I knew it was perfect. I told Marco that was the one I wanted and didn’t think more of it, he did such a amazing job and put such a special touch to our day. Our parents and numerous guests said that he was the best they had ever heard! Marco not only read the ceremony I chose but he included our parents into it and added the vows we originally wrote. It was so personalized and special to our ceremony.

    PHOTOGRAPHER- JUAN CARLOS TAPIA
    I have not received my photos yet so I didn’t grade Juan, but if you simply take a look at his work you know he has such a talent in capturing the beauty of each wedding and looking at complete strangers wedding photos, gave me chills. This was an easy decision for me since with a destination wedding not every one was able to join us! I know the slideshow Juan would create will not leave any of our friends and family who couldn’t come missing anything.
    Stay tooned for PRO pics from Juan!

    HAIR AND MAKEUP- SUZANNE MOREL : A+
    I had Suzanne Morel do the hair for my 5 bridesmaids, my mom and me … along with my makeup. The girls that came did an absolutely amazing job, every one of us was very happy with our hair. I have very long and curly hair that usually is quite a treat in humidity. This was something that I was very worried about when I decided to get married in Los Cabos, Suzanne phoned me numerous times throughout the year of planning to assure me everything would be fine and be sure we were still on the same page with what I wanted.
    The wedding day the girls arrived early to go over what we all wanted for our hair and came in with the works! Curling irons, blow dryers, hair spray, etc. so FUN! We all enjoyed the morning getting ready together in the comfort of our room. My makeup looked amazing as well! Just what I wanted! Even with the high temperature of the day it lasted all night and I only had to reapply lip-gloss!
    The only problem we had was Suzanne’s policy of prepaying for the service before the wedding day, which I was very nervous to do. Since it was her policy I did end up paying her prior for the entire service but didn’t have any problems… The girls arrived early and did a fantastic job! I would definitely recommend them to anyone with confidence.

    FLOWERS- FLORENTA FLOWER DESIGN: (Rosio) A+
    My flowers spoke for themselves, they were stunning! I had orchids, which had to be imported from Holland. They all looked just like the photos I had sent and so fresh! Rosio worked with me to incorporate local flowers in to the centerpieces so I could stay in budget and still have the orchids, just a delight to work with.

    CAKE- SWEET DREAMS: (Deena) A+
    I had Deena make us a carrot cake with a citrus cream cheese icing, this was so delicious!
    I had some major communication problems with Sweet Dreams and my emails weren’t going through but Deena still made sure she knew exactly what I wanted and delivered without a hitch. She even brought samples for us to taste to the hotel and I knew I was in good hands! The cake looked and tasted amazing.

      DJ- DJ RICARDO A+
      DJ Ricardo did a fabulous job with our music, he had all the songs I requested and made the night our own. Even with our group being a little bit of a rowdy bunch spraying beer everywhere around all his equipment he managed to have fun with us and we danced the night away!

      I can honestly say that there was nothing about this day I would have changed! It was the wedding I always dreamed about. It was such a special week with all our friends and family.
