First and foremost, congratulations on your impending nuptials on July 7th! Don't freak out - its going to be AMAZING!!!!
RE: our pics - All kudos go to Matt Adcock and his partner photographer for the day, Jonathan. They were extraordinary and i'm glad that came across i our pictures!
RE: your questions
I use their vendors for our flowers and DJ equipment only! We flew in our DJ from NYC (DJ Pushkin) and our photographers were Del Sol Photography (as I wrote about and mentioned above). There was an outside vendor fee for the photographers but not for the DJ (that's because our DJ was a guest at the property). Fees for vendors are waved if the 'vendor' is staying on the property as a guest of the wedding.
The gazebo was included in our package - we had the 'Tailor Made' package. However, the night before the wedding we did a 'Welcome Party' for our guests at the Sunrise Restaurant (poolside at La Esmeralda) and had to pay a fee to privatize that for our event.
Our Rehearsal Dinner was at Vento, one of the restaurants at the property and that was FANTASTIC. You cannot go wrong with any of the restaurants that you choose to do this at! And we negotiated they do a 'Family Style' dinner for our Rehearsal Party so that all of our guests at the dinner could get a sampling of all the dishes at the restaurant, as opposed to having to order from the menu, or have to arrange for a set menu (neither of which we wanted).
Hope that answers your questions!? Feel free to reach back out and let me know if there's anything else I can help with!
