My wife really wanted a mariachi band for our ceremony. I wasn't too crazy about the idea but I went along with it. Wow, I have to say that I am really happy we got these guys. They did a spectacular job from beginning to end. We had a 7 piece band and played every single song we requested. After the ceremony we all strolled down Benito Juarez to the water and they followed us and played. It was totally awesome. Highly recommended. A+

My wife's hair was done by Doranna de Bortoli. After reading the reviews and recommendations my wife was more comfortable using Doranna than the resident hairstylist at Xcaret. Doranna invited us to her house in Tohoku for the trial. My wife totally loved it but was worried the hair wouldn't stay on the day of the wedding because of the heat and we were also performing a high intensity routine that consisted of salsa, contemporary and tango. But Doranna was awesome and my wife's hair remained sturdy for the whole night. A+ easily for Doranna.
Citlalli Rico and Gerardo Rivera (Claudia Rodriguez Photography)
Picking a photographer was probably the hardest thing. I initially wanted Elizabeth Medina. We are so much into color and we just love the way Elizabeth Medina makes everything pop. However we also wanted a videographer so we looked for a company that offered both services. After much research and reading and reviewing portfolios we went with Claudia Rodriguez's team. Citlalli, Tamara, Jerry and Jimmy were such an awesome group to work with. They were very attentive to our needs and our guests needs. Very patient, professional and charming. You can tell they love their work and work together as a team. We had them for 8 hours originally but extended them another 2. Great workers and great people. A+ all the way.
Ana Da Roux
Must also thank Ana Da Roux for helping us with our passport invitations. A+ as well. Here is a link to my review.
Our amazing Aisle Runner was done by Holly Carafa from ThreeGalasDesigns. Very easy to deal with and everything was done to spec. A+
Anyway that is it. This is all coming from a guy's perspective so if you have any specific questions that I may have missed let me know and I or my wife will do our best to answer.
Lastly I must thank all of the people here who have posted and responded to my PMs. Every piece of info no matter how big or small was mostly from this site.
