    I just got the GTG from my Karisma wedding planner that DJ Doremixx is ok.

     

    Also, I am now thinking I will hire the same vendor for photography and videography so I will only have to pay the outside vendor fee once instead of twice with a different photographer and videographer. I was really hoping to do Samuel Luna for photography and playaweddings for videography but don't know what to do now! Anyone have any suggestions? I want to do the full day option for both.

     

    TarynM-

     

    I used Playa Weddings for both photography and videography based on their work I had seen (and many at Azul Beach). I haven't seen the work yet (since the wedding was 10/14) but I was very pleased with them overall. It's a husband and wife team. Rachel does the photography, and she's very friendly and was shooting non-stop. Paul does the videography, and after about an hour, I didn't even notice he was there (and he was there from 3pm-9pm)! They both have an assistant as well shooting photo/video so you get multiple angles. Because they are one vendor, I only had to pay the fee once, and they were gracious enough to work with me to bring the cost down. I'll post some pics when I get them. Let me know if you have questions!

      Does anybody have any pics of the reception area choices? I looked online but couldn't find anything great. I think I am leading towards blue terrace as I like the open feeling, but did anybody find that it was too windy? And what about centerpieces? If I were to choose something tall would the wind knock it down? My one idea for centerpieces is to go to Cancun during one of the days prior to the wedding and buy some glass vases. I'm not too picky about the shape or size but I envision them being tall and round cylinders with blooms underwater. Do you think that will be heavy enough to not tip over? And would it be too much having those and also a medium sized flower arrangement among them? Thoughts!?!?

       

      Also- Is the giant chandelier in blue terrace still there? I really love it and hope it is! I might hang a few lanterns around it but I think its really pretty on its own!

      Ashley-

       

      There are a handful of chandelier's at Blue Terrace. They all look the same, and yes, they look great and are very pretty on their own. I have a few pictures of the Terrace on my flickr account. Feel free to take a look. http://www.flickr.co...kaelamcdougall/

        KaelaMcD,

         

        I'm so glad to hear that. I think I will most likely go with them for both photo and video so I don't have to pay the outside vendor fee twice. How long did you have to wait to receive the photos?

         

        Thank you!

          Hi Taryn,

           

          I'm getting married on June 7, 2013, and I am being charged $800.00 for every outside vendor. May I ask who your WC is? Mine is Elizabeth Riff and she told me in our first conversations back in April that there was no getting around this fee...I would be curious to know if yours told you differently...


          Thanks so much!

          Randi

            Elizabeth is my WC as well and I am paying $800 fee for DJ Dorremix, and $800 for my my photographer/videographer team, which is one vendor. It is a terrible policy but there's no way I was using their approved DJ and photographer.
