    I am getting close to being 2 months from wedding date so really excited to get info soon!  The WC sent me the florist information but nothing else.  Dying to see everything else to start planning!!!

      Hey VK Miller!  I see you are from MI, I am from St. Clair Shores!!

       

      I leave for my wedding in 15 days...the wedding is in 19!  It is annoying not being able to plan ahead of time, but honestly I have changed my mind so many times on all of the details that I understand why they make you wait for the 2 month mark! 

       

      I saw a few of you asking questions about the photographer and such- I decided to hire Marcel Kaiser of Glez Photography and he seems great.  He is a local Cabo photographer, and he is excellent on getting back to me when I have questions or concerns.  He ends up being about the same price as the RIU photographers after you factor in the $300.00 vender fee. 

       

      Although I am busy planning the wedding, I will try to get back to you quickly if you guys have questions that I can answer...I've been planning this wedding since Jan of 2011, so I know how it feels not to have the details in place!

       

      Happy Planning Everyone!

          Kary,

          Isn't it strange that people who live so close end up in the same place in Mexico to be married??  Funny!  How exciting that your day is coming!  I can't wait!!!  You will totally have to give us all the scoop when you get back!  Yay!

           

          And...

          I am doing a TTD session too!  We have a very small wedding - just us and a few couple friends!  We are using Dino for 4 hours that day (silly for any more w/our group!) and then the TTD is a few days later.  He will pick us up and drive us around to fun locations then to a secluded beach location.  He didn't specify how long the TTD would be but the cost is $900.  It sounds like fun!

            Hey Kary,

             

            Are you having anyone do your hair/makeup?  I contacted Suzanne Morel and I am supposed to have a phone conversation with her in the next couple of days but curious what others are doing!

              I am really excited about the trash the dress session also...seems like fun :)  I am actually doing mine a few days before the wedding---we leave the monday after our ceremony, so we wanted to be able to fit it in. I will obviously be using another dress (LOL--IMAGINE!?!?)  I'll most likely buy something off the rack, just to have for the session.

               

              He is doing the same for us. Its a HUGE relief that he will be taking us to our destination...especially that im sure he knows Cabo more than we do!

               

              haha

                I have to say that having Dino drive us around sounded great to me too!  We will probably end up in some cool places!  Smart idea to trash a different dress!  And, you could use your trial run w/hair/makeup to look good for the TTD!
