      Is anyone doing special lighting for their reception? I like the photo from the wedding packet that has the pink lighting which matches their wedding colors

        Hi Christa

        I think i saw previously that you posted your reception was going to be in the yellow/blue room now called the bamboo room. Check out this video from the videographer with the resort. i like his work. i think i am going to stay with using him.

            Can't wait to read your review and see the pictures!

              Hi ladies! This is my first post on here. I am recently engaged and we are getting married at Now Jade in October (of this year)-so it's kind of quick.

              I have a huge book of information from Pilar-the WC. If anyone wants it-just email me at TSabrsula@gmail.com. It's probably close to 40 pages long and gives lots of options and prices-like locations, menus, flowers, etc.

              The planning process with Pilar has been hit or miss. Sometimes she responds right away to every question I have-other times I have waited over a week and then only part of my questions are answered.

              I can tell you that even though she is sometimes hard to get in touch with-she is pretty flexible with your wants/needs for the wedding. For example, I am bringing in an outside photographer (which is fine-you just have to get them a $65 guest pass). Since the package I purchased already included their own photographer-she let me swap that for the carribean trio that will now play during the cocktail hour. It was no additional charge-just a clean trade.

              I also wasn't crazy about some of the flower options-so I sent her pictures of different flower ideas. I just wanted something more colorful and tropical. She said they can work with the new colors/flowers and try to stay within the original price.

              The one thing she wouldn't budge on was prices for live entertainment. I was interested in adding a live salsa band-the resort qutoes it as $1500 per 45 minutes! I thought that was a little crazy-but she said that price was pretty set. So no salsa band for me! lol I'm not sure what they would charge to bring in an outside band.

              Oh yeah-in case you are interested in their photographer-she told me they use a guy named Fernando at Positive Photos. Here is the website:
              Fot³grafos especializados bodas sesiones books | Positive Photo Studio

              I'm not going to lie-the website does not leave much of an impression-which is why I decided to bring in my own. Also-when I tried to contact him for pricing on additional photos and hours-he never responded. It has been about 3 weeks since I emailed.

              I'm sure there are a million more things I can share on here about my experience so far in planning. We are in the middle of working out our final quote with Pilar so I've had tons of emails back and forth with her lately with more specific questions.

              Oh yeah-and we are getting married on the Pergola and using the Festival Terrace for the reception. Will have abotu 50 guests.

              That's another thing. The most people included in any of their packages are 25 people-so if you have more than that like we do-it will take a little bit more coordinating and negotiating to figure out final prices for everyone.

              We are also extending the reception for an extra 2 hours. The extra cost for the dj per hour is $350. As of now-Pilar has not charged for the extra 2 hours of bar service-so hopefully, that part stays firm. If not-it gets kind of pricey. It's $15 per person per hour....i'd rather just give the bartender a really great tip to stay there!

              Anyway-let me know if you have anymore specific questions. Hope this helps!
              Tracy, thanks for all the information! I'm going to email you right now!

                    I loved the video. I even teared up! I wonder if her flowers were in the packages or if they were upgraded or she brought her own. They are pretty!

                      I have added her to my facebook so i will ask for you. She is on here too somewhere. I can't remember her name right now but if you search oscar nunez you will probably find the post where she offers to have you add her.
                      Wasn't it great. I wonder how many hours of filming that was? I have him for 3 hours cause i am not using the photographer. i was told by the resort that i can split up that time too. yay Don't you just love the firedancers? There aren't cheap thought. $1000 for a performance. yikes!
