A few questions:
- Photographer - I have one in mind but want to check out others suggestions as well as prices.
- Reception - we have some older people coming and thought it might be nice to have somewhere for them to sit. The pool deck reception is out as my son will be 2 by that time and the thought worries me a little. I would be open to a beach party - however - I am getting married on a Saturday and they already do that. Would it be weird to have a seperate beach party? Is the Plantation resturant that crappy?
I have opted to go for the "free" package and have upgraded my room when booking our trip. I inquired about the minister fees and Keisha advised me it is $500. Is that correct?
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated
I booked Marcia Roberts for my photography and so far dealing with her has been awesome!! She is very flexible and soooo nice...totally great on negotiating price wise...and I def felt like I got a better bang for my buck with Marcia. She is absolute sweetheart....and in 7 weeks I can tell you how her and her crew were to work with She has a 2nd photographer as well which I really liked.- for no extra charge.
I am having a private dinner and reception on the pooldeck but I also seen pics of the Ballroom terrace which I really liked ...and also the beach. The Disco is also available for rent for the 2hrs after the dinner ...and is prob the most reasonably priced...but just an FYI the Beach party's are on Monday nights so I wouldn't hesitate to do a beach party on Saturday if that's when your getting married.
I too went for the "free" (not so free $500) package LOL, we upgraded our room as well....
Hope this helps!
