I just got my trailer from my videographer and wanted to share it with you all in case you're thinking about a videographer.  I would totally recommend using "Cinematik Weddings".  They were AMAZING and you can not beat their prices and professionalism. Please let me know if you have ANY questions about them. I would def. recommend you using them and getting a video. It's so worth the money!!!! Pictures can't even come close.  Good luck and happy planning. =)

Yes, definitely and I'll want to know how your site visit goes! [/quote I am.also getting married on the 7 Feb- yay...I have Ana as my coordinator and she is so so slow, takes a week to reply to one question and she still hasn't sent me a contract which is really annoying. But once I get that and the brochures I will be happy...this site is so great...helps me ask the right questions,and look for the hidden fees. Thanks Ladies

Pictures are awesome but it's so not the same as actually re-living it through the video.  Pictures make you smile but they don't give you the same feeling and it doesn't take you back like a video does. =)

Can't wait to hear about your wedding. =)

Beautiful!

Thanks so so so much for sharing the video ncalvar!

WOW! You looked perfect!!! Congrats!! Can you post your florist's website or email address?? I'm guessing you brought the lantern centerpieces with you to Cancun? Very cute! For the violinist at your ceremony, did you feel that he played your entrance song so well that you didn't need any other musician?? I want a violinist but I want to make sure that my entrance song sounds awesome and wasn't sure if I needed more musicians to do that. Was the violinist one that you got with your wedding package?  Can you post your photographer's website/email address too?? I'm glad to hear that you liked GCR's video services because although want an outside vendor to do our pictures, we wanted too just use GCR for the video to avoid another outside vendor fee.  Thanks for the review!!

Hi Ladies!

 

My wedding was Saturday! I have great news 57 people came out from NYC, CALI, MIAMI, Puerto Rico and no one got sick!!! However, no wedding day is perfect ;) It rained, not just a storm but more like a tsunami! However, everything turned out perfect! I couldn't be happier :) All our guest told us its the best wedding they've been too.

 

Wedding Coordinator: Diana-

She is awesome, you can tell she has a lot of experience and knows what she is doing. I brought so many things (3 luggage's full) and she placed everything just as i told her. She is, however, extremely strict! She would not help with my flowered since I used a outside vendor, which she warned me, but she did not even give us permission to use the Bellhop.

 

For my flowers I used Vanessa Jaime's- which was wonderful and so cheap compare to the resort.

 

Ceremony: Chapel

 

Cocktail & Reception: ballroom due to the rain.

 

Music: Violinist- who was amazing and played every song I requested.

3 TRIO- this was for the cocktail hr, didn't really hear them play but It kept the cocktail hr festive

DJ Dorromixx- AMAZING!!!!!! everyone dance the whole time, we even paid for an extra hour ;)

 

I also rented the medium size dance floor- which was ridiculously expense 1600 usd! BUT SOOO Worth it!!! No regrets everyone loved it and everyone fit on the dance floor. Makes great pictures too!

 

Hair & Makeup: My cousin did my hair, he's a stylist. Makeup: Norma from MAC Cancun, she came to the resort- actually snuck in ;) (yay no vendor fee)

 

Photographer- Citlalli Rico- she is so sweet and gave me an extra hour free!

Video- GRC we did the moon package, I can't wait to see it- he was very good and although the coverage was suppose to be 6 hours he stayed until the end.

 

Here are some pictures! Feel free to email me. mrs.guinovart2013@gmail.com

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
