Name: Jolene
Date: October 31, 2010
Loc: Zihuatanejo, Mexico

Ceremony takes place on Playa la Ropa and reception at La Perla restaurant.

The twist - we're taking an 8-Day Mexican Riviera cruise an are only disembarking in Zihuatanejo for 9 hours on the day of our wedding.

I've run into a few "issues":
  1. not a super fan of the site's preferred photographer & he doesn't have a website so I can see are albums on youtube.
  2. Many other photographers charge 2x more but offer a second day of photographs BUT they've only offered them at the SAME location, which doesn't work for us.
  3. Looking online I can't seem to find a make up artist - suggestions please.

I think there's more but I can't think of them atm.

    Hi Jolene, congrats and welcome to the forum. I think if you try searching you may be able to not only find alternate photographers to use as well as other brides that can lend advice. Good luck and happy planning!

          Hi Jolene... what cruise line are you sailing with? Most of them have wedding planners who may be able to help with on shore questions.
