    I did post some of our "wedding week" pictures on Snapfish- if you want to check them out- just PM me. There aren't any of the actual wedding day- we didn't take any with our camera since we had Cancun Studios there, but if you want to kinda see pix of resort, room, beaches, pools, etc-- just PM me with your email address and I'll "share" the albums with you!

    Hopefully, I'll get some pix from Cancun Studios from the actual wedding, soon- we were super super happy with our photographer and how smoothly everything went with them-- made me even more excited about the pix! :)
    Welcome Back Shannon & Congratulations!!!! I'm so happy everything went great for you. It sounds wonderful. I'm happy to hear you were pleased with Cancun Studios. I'm leaving in 2 days and finishing my music...last minute. I can't wait to see your photos and chat more about your DW @ EDR.

      Shannon, when did you get there again? I thought I might of saw you in the lobby when we were leaving. Again I didn't want to go up to a random stranger and ask about BDW. heh. :) We left the 14th and were in the lobby around 9:30 am.

      My pro-pics are up and posted here:

          We're back! Everything was beautiful. I'll write my review later. A few quick things though:

          Both of my parents were pretty sick for 4-5 days. All we can figure out was they were the only ones to eat at Rincon Mexicana. A few other people had problems, but no one else longer than a day.

          I didn't wear a veil, and I don't know how any of your girls did! It was sooo windy, esp at Gazebo 55.

          Everything went very smoothly with the wedding and the coordinators (well, they were late picking me up, but they said it was because they were waiting on my guests. I think they were just running on "Mexican time").

          Shannon, DH and I (and my parents) peeked in on your wedding. You were absolutely beautiful!! And did we see you having a dinner on the beach the next night? DH and I peeked in on Anna at her reception. I wish we all could have gotten together! Funny story, the entire time my dad could only remember Anna's name, so anytime he came across anyone with an English accent, he would ask if they knew Anna! Finally he met one of her friends. Very nice people!

            Also, regarding the food:
            Our dinner was at Las Fuentes. Everyone loved the pasta with shrimp, but the turkey dish didn't go over so well.

            Isaac and I ate dinner at El Cocotal the last night. We were not impressed. Not even a little. In fact, Isaac could not cut through his pork chop, let alone eat it.

                I need help deciding on our food choices...WC, Valeria & I have discussed it somewhat, but things still seem unclear.

                I'm thinking of having our free welcome dinner at Fuentes the night before the wedding. That would be on a Saturday. Does anyone know what the menu is like there on Saturdays?


                Also, I can't seem to decide on the 3 course meal that I'm thinking of having at Tucanes.
                Anyone have any suggestions..??

                  Here are the main courses for Fuentes:
                  Please select two ( one to be served, Your Guest will have 2 options )
                  Grilled tuna wedges with Yucatan honey-scented black bean and corn relish, avocado sauce
                  Seared Mahi Mahi fillet with stir-fried vegetables and cashew nuts, sesame ginger soy emulsion
                  Penne Pasta with saut©ed shrimp and parmesan cheese, ajillo cream sauce
                  Pasta Primavera, mixed vegetables saut©ed with garlic, white wine and olive oil
                  Grilled beef arrachera “Wellington” with foie gras-stuffed mushrooms caps, Baja California Cabernet reduction
                  “Poc Chuc” lamb chops and sweet potato brul©e, Xtabentun liquor gelatin
                  Achiote-marinated turkey breast roulade with Spanish-cured serrano ham & sundried tomatoes, grilled tomato cream
                  Grilled pork chop and pineapple with saut©ed bitter greens, tamarind mole sauce

                  My daughter had the penne pasta (everyone loved) and the achiote-marinated turkey breast (dry and not so great).

                    Here is the dessert menu for Fuentes:

                    Caribbean ice-cream trio with amaranth bar
                    Fuentes “tres leches” with strawberries
                    Cookies & cr¨me br¹l©e
                    “Nouvelle” Mexican chocolate, kalhua and coffee delight
                    Bananas “Foster” saut©ed with an “A±ejo” rum sauce

                    We had the tres leches and everyone seemed to like it. One thing about Fuentes, halfway through our dinner, they started doing food "demonstrations". It was shown on the overhead screens and announced my microphone. It was a bit loud and distracting.
                    We were able to sit at two tables for the 19 of us. One of the girls has celiac disease and required a special menu. The chef came out and talked to her personally to make sure she was accommodated and happy with her food.

                      Thank you so much for this..
                      Maybe the Pasta is the best, your right. I'll have to check with FI on the other options. By the way, who takes care of the final menus to be presented to guests at dinner? {Free Dinner & Private} I was thinking I had to work on these once everything is decided on. Is this so?

                      Also, were these "demonstrations" you say, for you or others around you?
                      My guestlist is now looking more like 30-35 people. How accomodating would you say Fuentes would be in our case? I would consider Cocotal, but I've heard their food wasn't all that great..What are your thoughts on this?


                      Thanks in advance,
