Thanks! I actually looked at La Luna and Del Sol, but I don't think they've ever done Indian weddings before, so that's why we're bringing our own photographer, but I'm willing to chance it a little more on videography...
So, when I said we're bringing all these people with us, they're coming for multiple days (i.e. hair/makeup, photographer, musicians, priest, etc) and will be staying as guests at the hotel... so technically not outside vendors at that point... the only exception they made for us (so far) is the caterer. We are using a local Indian caterer that is just bringing in food for most of our events...
I'll definitely check out DJ Mannia.
I did hear about Maya Diseno Floral, but aren't they considered an "outside vendor"? So how do you go about using them? I guess I could get my bouquet and the bridesmaids bouquets through them and have them deliver "packages" to each person on the day of... but how about for centerpieces...?

Im also sort of surprised they are going to allow you bring in so many outside vendors (photographer, hair/make-up, a few live musicians and a caterer)? They ok'd all of that? I guess if you are bringing 200 guests to thier resort, they may be ok with allowing some extra outside vendors.
As for recommendations for your requests:
local videography - most of the local photograhers have a decent video package, check out LaLuna and DelSol (or any of the Featured Sponsors)
dj services - I would start with DJ Mannia...seems to be a favorite of that area
flowers - maya diseno floral does a great job, and are very reasonable compared to the resort pricing
