    i second the recommendation for sungold photography.  paula is very responsive and accommodating.  she was a bit pricey for us, so we are going with one of the associates, but paula has still given me first class service.

          Thank you so much for all those suggestions, Ashley! After discussing it with the TA I am working with, Gran Bahia really does sound like the best option. The only downfall she could really give me was the hour and a half travel from the airport to GBP but she said it is worth it! I am very close to securing a date and I will definitely update as soon as I do and join the GBP thread :) I'm excited to have some sort of confirmation on something so I can at least relax a little!

          If you're looking for photographer suggestions, I'm personally going with Sungold Photography.  They are a little pricey but I thought they were worth it.  You can have a look at their website if you want  www.sungoldphoto.com  Paula and Damian have been fantastic to deal with through email and over the phone. 

           

          Keep us posted on what resort you pick.  If you end up choosing Gran Bahia you should definitely join the thread that's over 190 pages already that I believe Jaykay or Dutchie had mentioned.  The ladies on there are fabulous and the information is so helpful!

               Sounds like the hardest parts are behind you, picking a destination and resort, once you do that and book your date everything just falls into place!!!

              Once we picked our resort, the GBP:) and our date and time, things seemed to really settle down and the stress almost went away!

               

              Our TA said the resort is about 60km from the airport, and therefore about an hour drive.  My aunt just got back from the GBP Jamaica and said the drive was a little less then an hour, which isn't bad!

                I just need to get a date and time and I should feel a little less stressed :) well until I have to send out STDs! Oh that's not terrible, it really did seem like the best option after constantly researching all the rest in terms of value, price, and the wedding in general! I'm sure I will be following you, JayKay to see all of your posts and I can't wait to hear all about your big day!

                  Do you have an idea of a date and time?
