We chose the violinist to play for the ceremony. Our DJ started playing at the cocktail hour.
Marvin's flower prices were more reasonable than the resort's were but I didn't compare to other outside vendors.
I was very happy with my hair and makeup from the resort salon.
For food we chose
mixed lettuce w/ blue cheese and walnut confit w/ honey balsamic dressing
surf and turf of beef filet and shrimp--- everyone raved about the quality of the entree
tres leches cake (Delicious! We went to the mexican restaurant at the resort the following night with a group of 12 of us and were all hoping their tres leches would be the same but it wasn't The wedding cake was way better.)
we opted to skip dessert and serve our wedding cake as the dessert and instead chose 5 appetizers for the cocktail hour
(prosciutto bruscetta, beef brochette, shrimp wrapped in bacon, tamales, and sausages in puff pastry---we only got to try the brochette since we were with the photographer taking pictures while everyone else enjoyed the appetizers)
We brought down LED lights and votives (that I ordered on quickcandles.com) I had read on here that it's too windy for real candles.
I will work on trying to figure out how to post pictures.
