Thank you for this review!!
That is unfortunate that the other bride's guests put a damper on your event. Besides that, it sounds like your wedding went great! Are you going to be posting photos?

There was one other wedding the same night as mine. I found this out when I went to the spa for my hair appointment and here entire entourage was there, and I had to wait another 1/2 hour. I don't know if the other bride knew how obnoxious her guests were being, but the staff kept apologizing to me and were clearly frustrated with them.
Ramon was amazing!! He was able to work some magic and help us stay in budget. I cannot thank him enough.
we had the eternity package and about 30 guests, plus two photographers from la luna. (we did not have to pay the 300 b/c anel did not mention this when I told her about them so they waved it) for each guest over 25 i think it is $58 plus fees and taxes not 94. Since some of these were children it was even less.
I had my wedding on the beach in front of the tequila terrace and the cocktail hour and reception on the deck. Honestly I didn't notice any of the people in the restaurants! The other wedding was on the beach terrace but I didn't hear them. I was a little miffed when their bridesmaides and guests kept cutting through our reception area.
Ramon set up two long tables because I wanted everyone to sit together family style. I was perfect, so intimate. Ramon informed us that the speakers and microphones were available for the ceremony only, this was great b/c we thought it wasn't. We bought a bose for our music. So we used the speakers and mic for our ceremony, which was lovely, (I didn't notice anyone else on the beach) and then our bose for the cocktail hour and reception. the bose was plenty loud enough.
Ramon did an outstanding job. the only decorations i brought were little luminaries in white and blue paper which I asked him to scatter around. He took it upon himself to also scatter seashells and other larger candles. and even though we didnt think we needed the centerpiece( it thought it would be too small and look silly), he put in there anyway and it was gorgeous! He really knows his stuff! He made sure the decorations on the cake matched the blue i had picked for my bouquet ribbon too.
My guests all said they loved it and it was perfect. my parents and family want to plan to go back for their 50th wedding anniversary. And my friends said they want to go back to do a girls vacation. So i guess the resort was a hit. Everyone couldn't say enough about the staff and they were very impressed with the food in general and especially at the wedding. it was delicious!
my only complaint was some the other weddings guests, who at one point were very rude to my niece, yelling at her to translate some spanish since she "looked like a native". I was pissed when she told me a the next day.
