    Natalie: I cant believe your big day is so close, best of luck chicky! Cant wait to hear all about it as I am sure it will work out perfectly!

     

    Bjean: I believe I asked way back when about hiring just the MC without the DJ package and I got shut down or the price was crazy because I still had to rent the sound system for the $470.  With what they quoted me for just the MC it made sense to just do the whole pacakge.

     

    As you guys know I was so anti the MC during the wedding planning (mostly because of the price) but it really did make a difference and it was one of the better decisions I made. It made a big difference in the flow of the night, his energy and added humor was a huge benefit. Not to mention it allowed everyone in the party to enjoy themselves without assiging tasks to people and having to worry about making annoucnements and so on.

     

    Another decision that was THE best decision I made was bringing our own photographer! Again during the planning process I was pretty anti Tropical Pictures but over the last few months they did step up their game. No pun intended to those whom are using them however for less than what most spent with TP I hired a local photographer and she covered the entire week! Amazing candid just random shots. She just put together a slideshow that I will show on Saturday durng our local reception but wanted to share it with you guys because there are so many great shots of so many areas of the resort including reception and beach. Added note we did use TP for the video services ($1200) and another great investment. Just to relive the day and hear your vows and see tears falling...sigh...just something about the real moment aspect of the video. Its like 40 minutes so I will try and upload it to utube soon for you all to see the quality. Anyway LOL I think I am done with my ramble!

    Happy Planning chickys!!

    thanks

        MissJali, I don't know if the pastor they're referring to on the price list is pastor York, but I do know that Pastor York's fee is $350 for 2014. I'm using him for my ceremony also. :)

                  So, who does the symbolic ceremony if you don't hire Pastor York?

                      He's also able to do the ceremony bilingually as well which is why we chose him. He also makes the ceremony with some religious undertones, he can do it traditionally or more contemporary, both of which are worded beautifully. I thought it would feel more like a real ceremony having him there.
