        Jill conner and Sunset-your pictures are gorgeous! I am still waiting for mine....getting nervous.


        For the dinner, I chose the beef with scallops. Everyone loved it(they all loved the food). We had 24 people total (including me and hubby).  I was thinking of doing a choice of two, but then I thought not to. I didn't want to have to stress about it.  And plus, if they didn't like it, they could always have gone somewhere else or gotten room service. I felt I had stressed enough about everything, and I should just relax and enjoy.


        As I said before, it was very very windy and my hair fell. I dont like the way I look with my hair up, so I decided to go with it down. The pictures that guests took, my hair is all over the place. It wasn't what my 'ideal' look was for my wedding day (everyone else on here looks so calm and non-dishelved), but we were on the beach in mexico and I loved it. Everyone had a great time. I have attached a few photos (first time doing it, so I dont know if they attached).

          I see on the website that the gold package only caters up to 20 people. Does anyone know how they charge if we have more than that? I'm looking at 70ish? Is that too many people? Thanks!

            Hi! My understanding is that it's $45.00 per person beyond 20 (bride and groom included in 20). That is supposed to cover cocktail hour, dinner and cake/sparkling wine. I'm not sure if they're willing to negotiate on that, especially if it's a large group, but it's probably worth asking.

              I looked into Elizabeth Medina, Cecilia Dumas, & Del Sol.  Their prices were outrageous (the only one I specifically remember is Elizabeth - her packages STARTED at $5,000 - then of course you have to pay the Excellence to have her there).  My friend used Juan Navarro & her pictures were really great, our package is less than $2,000.  I absolutely loved Elizabeth & Del Sol's photography, but Juan's pictures & style are very similar for lass than 1/2 the price.

                I am using Juan Navarro.  I looked into 3 other photographers & their prices are outrageous (approx $5,000).  I looked at the resort photographer's photos & wasn't happy with them at all.  You can search online & look at examples of their work.  Juan was the style we were looking for, and the most reasonable price I could find.

                  Hello ladies!

                  I am new to this thread, and am booked to have my wedding at ERC on April 1, 2013! I am super excited for the wedding, but anxious about all of the planning...so many details to worry about! Next on my to do list is booking a photographer. Has anyone used the in-house photographer for their wedding here? So far it seems like everyone has been using outside photogs, but I know there is an outside vendor fee of $500 charged to do that. Has anyone been able to negotiate that price down? Or been able to negotiate any of the prices/inclusions of the wedding packages and extras? So far I don't get the feeling that they are very flexible with pricing and package customizing. Anyway, please share your thought and experiences with photographers and pricing with me. Thanks!

                    I'm planning for my wedding on July 27, 2013, with about 50 people and I am wondering about the photographer as well!  I am using extra funds in my budget for hiring DJ Mannia, as all of the reviews I have read sound great.  I was just going to get the package the resort offered for photographs and have my friend take the rest since he has a photography background.  I was wondering about the resort photographers though.  I really don't have another 2-5k in my budget!
