    Check out Sascha Gluck.  He was actually less expensive in total when you factor in the extra hours you'll have to pay for with AdventurePhotos and the cost of getting your photos on DVD (keep in mind the package only gives you a certain # of photos in an album. No actual photos or dvd with pics).  Sascha's price includes ALL pics which he send to you on a zip drive.  You canc check out my Now Jade review as well as my review for Sascha Gluck to see photos.

     

    PS. We did use our photos that came in the Eternity Package with AdventurePhotos.  We just used them for a TTD session instead.

    Here is the link to see our TTD session with AdventurePhotos:

    (keep in mind this isn't how they do their wedding photos and we asked them to take us to Maroma Beach to shoot at an abandoned house... but if you are looking for a TTD session, they were great!)

     

     

    Do you have any of your wedding pics from Sascha? How much did he charge and what kind of coverage did you get? The only concern I have with Adventure photos is some of their poses look kind of cookie cutter to me, but I suppose you could always have your own ideas for poses.. hmmm..

      I don't remember exactly but I think I tipped Pilar $50, Deisy $25, The DJ's $5 or $10 each - same with the waiters. I also think that we tipped the officiant $5 or $10. I probably didn't need to tip Pilar that much but I was feeling generous haha

        I was also wondering the same! My wedding is booked for January 8th/2013. Pilar was my wedding planner and I recently upgraded to the Divine package and I have been in contact with Deisy. She responds to her e-mails much faster than Pilar did, but they both seem very nice. Glad to hear that they are both excellent. This website has been awesome! I am not stressed out at all about anything because I have not heard one negative review on any wedding at the Now Jade! :)

          Does Deisy have a different email contact? I am going pretty much one month between Pilars responses and it is KILLING me!

            Yeah I mean that makes sense that the other times at the Pergola are already booked; however, their website and the email to our travel agent said that day is completely open right now...?? Just wondering if anyone else had run into an issue like that is all...

              If it is open just tell them that you want it earlier.  It should not be a problem.  I had mine at the Pergola at 4pm.

                There were weddings their earlier than that and if it is open I would request an earlier time slot.

                  I ran into the same issue when I was looking to book our ceremony at the Pergola. The calander shown on their main website appeared as if several days were free. It wasn't until I emailed Pilar to book that she told me there was already weddings being held there for the time I was looking for. Mine is at 4pm. I think their calander fills up pretty quickly and they are just a little slower when it comes to updating the website...

                    Ya there is a delay getting bookings on the website, we noticed that after we confirmed our date it was several weeks before it was reflected online.  I found the easiest way to get a quick answer on what days/times are available is to call Pilar, we did that and she gave us a run down of dates that were already booked and we went from there.

                    Kerri - Did you bring silk flower petals? If so, where did you purchase them?
