@ebigge - thank you so much for this post and sharing pics!! We are getting married at Generations but I also lurk on this site to get insights and ideas because the bulk of our guests are staying at EDR.  CONGRATS & ALL THE BEST!

We got our mini clip video from Sarani last night and I just wanted to share. Sarani and Her team were amazing with our videography and photography. I recommend them 100%. We splurged and got the full day video and photo. Any way I can help you with your special day please let me know :)

Your photos and video are fabulous!!  I am thinking to book Sarani too- did you book with her or just her assistants, also which package did you get with her (how many hours?)  I took a look at her prices and she is expensive but wondering if it's worth to spend the $5K on her?!

 

Also, how far in advance did you book with Sarani?  My wedding is May 2016 so I still have a bunch of time, just curious how many months in advance you booked with her?

 

Thanks for your help!

@elmekies You will not be sorry with the money spent with Sarani.  The photos and videos were so fabulous!  I booked the full day package with Sarani (she brings an assistant as well).  Sarani is the one that takes those amazing sunset shots.  I did the full day, 8 hour package that was 4K.  I booked her a year in advance.  Sarani's time slots fill up quickly.  If you email her she will email back quickly.  Also, on her website it shows the days she is already booked.  I secured my spot with her then told my wedding coordinator that I was booking Sarani.  I also did the full day of video as well.

Sarani is now closer to $5200 if I remember correctly. It's now $4000 for one of her associates. :(

Love everyone's photos with Sarani but for those concerned about the price tag, consider bringing someone with you to shoot your wedding! We found someone amazing in the states that we are going to fly down, use our "free rooms" for and we are only spending about $4500 with the flight. She is going to shoot our welcome party (or whatever we have the night before the wedding), 10 hours on the wedding day and a trash the dress the following day!

Hi ladies,

 

Did anyone use the Coast Bliss decoration package? I am going to go with the Costal Bliss decor for the reception tables but I am not sure if the price is worth it for the ceremony decoration since its only 20 minutes. I am trying to come up with alternative ideas for ceremony decoration. We are getting married at the White Gazebo on the EDR side. Let me know if you have any thoughts. Thank you!

 

Hi!

 

I was just wondering what you decided to do?  I am also going to do the Coastal Bliss decor for the reception tables, but $3K for the ceremony set-up is just nuts.  I was thinking to do coral and mint drapes on the gazebo.

 

Just wondering what you did and if you already got married pictures please!!!  Thanks!


@elmekies You will not be sorry with the money spent with Sarani.  The photos and videos were so fabulous!  I booked the full day package with Sarani (she brings an assistant as well).  Sarani is the one that takes those amazing sunset shots.  I did the full day, 8 hour package that was 4K.  I booked her a year in advance.  Sarani's time slots fill up quickly.  If you email her she will email back quickly.  Also, on her website it shows the days she is already booked.  I secured my spot with her then told my wedding coordinator that I was booking Sarani.  I also did the full day of video as well.

Thanks NickiLynn! 

 

I think I am going to go with Sarani...her package is now $5200 but since we are doing a destination wedding we are already saving.  I think its worth to splurge on the photos- to me its the most important part of the wedding!

 

Thanks for your input!!

@elmekies  Sarani actually has a full day package that is $5200 but also has an 8 hour package that is $4000.  I think the full day includes things like a boudoir session.  I tried going on the site, b ut it is under construction.  Email Sarani and see can give you a run down of all her packages and what they include.

@elmekies - I am only doing the Coastal Bliss package for the reception.  For the ceremony, I am keeping it simple & only doing white sheers draping the gazebo, white aisle runner 4 of the Coastal Bliss tall ceremony lanterns (2 at the beginning & end of the aisle).   Also, I am tweaking the reception set up because it was cheaper to go that route than ala carte.

@NickiLynn1116

 

Thanks! The site is up and running again.  I took a look at the packages she offers but her $3900 package is only for 6 hours. The $5200 package is for 9 hours.  I will email her to see if we can work something out.

Has anyone brought lighting for Tucanes area? They charge a ridiculous amount! I asked to bring my own floating candles and was basically scolded by my WC that they are not able to use the ones I found because they were too small. Has anyone had experience with this? I don't want to buy things and not use them.

 

Thanks!
