    Thanks! Did you do a TTD session?

      Congrats!  I look forward to reading your review once you find time in your newlywed bliss ;)  Just wondering since you didn't bring a lot down with you - did you end up paying a lot for decorations etc through the resort?  Trying to budget for that aspect of the big day and decide on buying here and bringing it down or just going through the resort...

       

      Congrats again - can't wait to see pictures!

          I did do a TTD session the following day. I used Gonzalo Nunez as my photographer and I couldn't have been more pleased! I am exciting to get the pictures!!

            I also brought down paper lanterns. The only thing that I paid extra for were chairs (I upgraded to the brown tiffany chairs) and extra boutonnieres. We only had 15 other people with us so I didn't need any extra flowers ( we had the divine package so it came with 1 centerpiece and then we used the 2 flower arrangements that were used during the ceremony as other centerpieces on the table.) I am pretty sure that I should have been charged for some extra things and she didn't charge me. They are very easy to work with! I will try to upload one or 2 pictures today if I can.

          Where did you go for your TTD?  I would like to go to a cenote the following day but am not sure which one to go to yet.
