Same reason we also went with Marcia was the quality. Marcia also negotiated or was most flexible from all of the photo vendors we spoke to (spoke to Brian, Mischa, Stacey Clarke, all of whom I loved their work) ..Marcia pays the vendor fees and she is bringing her 2nd photographer and videographer who are all at her cost as well. So although we may be paying a tiny bit more (I truthfully am not even sure that we actually are paying anymore though considering everything we are getting and the price we negotiated) then the ROR photog...regardless I thought based on the pics I seen that the outside vendor was worth any extra we were potentially going to pay. Like Danielle the pics were very important to us. 

Im actually considering Marcia now too. Her prices are pretty good and i feel i might get more then I would from Brian. Although I am absolutly in love with Brians work. With marcia I see that you get the 2 photog like Kdoyle says and shes there basically all day. Its something I will discuss with my FI for sure. And Maybe we can negotiate something with Brian.

 

I like that Marcia pays the vendor fee instead of reimbursing it or taking it off the price. Thats a Plus. Defin. Brian and Marcia are my top 2. If you need some pics from the photog from the resort let me know and I can email them to you so you can see the quality he has.

          Hello Ladies, I am hoping you ladies can help me, first off I am getting responses from someone named Pat, what happened to Keisha? Secondly, they told me the pool deck reception is 15pp but 600 for music and is only for two hours?!! I am looking for a reception cost effective that I can have my first dance and speeches, cause they also told me we can't do speeches in the semi-private reception. HeLp! Any suggestions?

            The plantation is often the best choice for this, either upstairs or downstairs. I believe the price is 1000 for 4 hours plus 10.50 per guest, that includes dinner, beer, wine etc... you would have to bring your own sound system or rent theirs (way too much in my opinion). We bought the Bose sound dock, and bringing a microphone (note, you have to buy a mixer for the bose sound dock) for me, it was just a better deal :)

            Hey . im not sure on the price for the pool deck Reception. But for the Disco(club) you can rent it 2 hours prior to it opening at 11.  That is what Im doing so that way we can have our first dance. speeches if any.. etc. I dont think they can really stop speeches at dinner  Its basically like them saying you are not allowed to talk. I just dont think you can use a mic in there , thats all.

             

            The prices for the disco I find are the best as it includes the DJ, open bar and the space privately for 2 hours. The price is as follows:

             

            PRIVATE DINNER ON THE BEACH, POOL DECK..

            Set up cost $600.00 plus $67/per person includes open bar

             

            Plantation Resturant(private dinner reception)

            $1000.00 US for 4 hrs PLUS $10.50 per additional person booked on the package

             

            PRIVATE RENTAL OF THE DISCO

            (anywhere from 10 am-1030 pm)

            1-20 guests only US $500.00

            20-50 guests only US $650.00

            50-100 guests only US $1000.00

             

            **INCLUDES OPEN BAR, BARTENDER AND A DJ.**

            At 11pm disco is open to the hotel public except on tuesdays

             

             

            Hope this helps!

              They told me the platation restaurant was 1000 plus 67pp to include the bar and dinner?! Do you have a different price list? I am getting annoyed and stressed that every and any thing extra costs money!

              The pricing I posted above is the most recent email I got from Keisha last week. I would email them again and confirm but thats the pricing list she gave me for the Extras.. Maybe the 10.50 one is just for a reception and NOT dinner.
