    We are not upgrading are cake. You get a free 3 tier cake. We where talking to Keish over a year ahead of the wedding date. We are the same way we did not bombard her with questions and emails lol.

    I was told the pool deck is only for 2 hours! I was also told there is a 600 charge for music? Do you have an email saying that's its for the entire night ? I keep getting conflicting prices, its so frustrating!

      This is the price for the after dinner dance. if you want to have dinner and the dance on the pool deck then it cost $600 plus $67 pp.

      Anyone know if they would charge a vendor fee if you brought fake flowers? I dont think they really can do that if they did. I understand real flowers. But Just curious:)

        I've read in a different thread that people bring fake flowers all the time-no one mentioned having to pay though. I don't think you would have to pay for real flowers if you brought them either, its just a vender fee if there is an actual vender coming on site bringing a bunch of stuff.

          Thank you! I actually did not notice those.

          oh! thats good to know! so I could potentially go off the resort buy a boquet for cheap and bring it on and they cant do anything !? ehheh I saw a pic of the free one and its nice. Im still debating on what i want to do about the flowers or what im going to have my BM carry. I might just do one calla lilly or something for them. I still got time:)

            For those of you having marcia photograph your wedding, I understand she takes pictures of the bride and groom getting ready and the ceremony but not the dinner or reception. Is this correct?

              Marcia is staying right through my reception to the end of the night...she doesn't put a time limit on the day as she likes to capture all the major events for the wedding...cutting the cake, first dance, father daughter dance etc... Most photogs give you only 3 or 5 or full day package (8hrs) but depending on what time your getting married at that wont cover right through to the reception so most photographers ask you to do the first dance right away, and then cutting the cake, and then leave...unless you arrange to pay for them to stay straight through the reception. I spoke to Marcia and told her what i was looking for and then we set a very fair price, she is very flexible and great to deal with...You just have to talk to her and let her know your expectations.

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.

                 

                Thanks for the info Kerri and Danielle, very much appreciated:)  I sent an email to the address indicated on Marcia's website Portraitspecialist@hotmail.com and am just waiting to hear back from her...
