    I guess I'm still a newbie?  Have made many posts here, but looks like I forgot to introduce myself! 

    I'm Cherany!  Marrying the adorable and hilarious Amy!  

     

    Our date is May 4, 2013 (or, as I've pointed out to Amy, who can never remember these things, 5-4-3! er, 5-4-13, technically, but you get the idea).  So far, we've nailed down...

     

    El Taj Condo Hotels!!!  

    Seriously, could die of excitement over this!  We're housing our bridal parties with us in their luxury penthouses, where we'll be grilling up dinner every night ('cept the wedding night!), and our ceremony will be right on the beach! 

     

    Is anyone else getting married at El Taj?  Weddings don't seem as common there as some other places, but I'm pretty baffled as to why, because holy crap, have you seen the place?!

     

    http://www.condohotelsplayadelcarmen.com/weddings/photo-gallery.php

     

    We booked these units:

     

    http://www.eltaj.com/302/

     

    http://www.eltaj.com/325/

     

    We were able to score their 2012 pricing & get the 3-night/30% off promo, thanks to their good relationship with our photographer, del Sol!  I almost didn't even ask, but now I'm so glad I did!  Soon as they heard we were having a del Sol photographer, getting the deal was a breeze!  

     

    That's the other thing we've managed to sort: the photographer!  I can't even believe what I'm typing... seriously, my mouth is watering, and I'm giving myself heart palpitations, but it's official: del Sol photographers will be at our wedding!  Can I just say, "sfhklasdjfhaksakhgfdskjnvckmhreotu!!!!!!!!!!"  Lol, no, really!  File this under, "Can! Not! Form! Sentences!!!  Excited khdfksajdhfjklsahfldskjfh!!!!!"

     

    http://www.delsolpho.../blog/index.php

    *dies*  *is dead*  *coming back to life to look at more of their pictures*  *is dead again* 

     

    Their pictures have to be killer promo for the hotel!  I know I've stalked the galleries on the del Sol site for months, checking out every picture of El Taj I can find!  (Just use the search feature on their site.)  I only wish there were more.  But there will be after my wedding!  Tons of them, because I'm going to slather those pictures all over the internet!  Vanity, psh.  Pictures like that of my dream day?  People behind me in the check-out line at the grocery store are going to hear about them!  

     

    Is it weird that I'm just as excited about getting the pictures back after the wedding, as I am about the wedding?!  That's so ridiculous, I know!  But I can't help it!  I'm in love & want to marry the photos as much as I want to marry Amy!  And they're not even photos of us yet, haha!  I need help!  Or at least an ice pack to chill me out! 

     

    Anyone else having a wedding at El Taj and/or using del Sol photographers?  Tell me there's someone else out there with this combo that can burst into SQUEEEEEEEE with me!!

        Forgot to add, we scored a deal on the photography, too!  Spring promo, oh yeah!

         

        Seriously, this has been the best week in wedding planning EVER!  (Ha, not that I've gone around planning too many weddings... just this one!  But still!)  

        It just feels like a dream, all of it!

          Cherany, welcome to BDW!  Your excitement got me excited and I got married five years ago!  Love it.  What a great place, I've never heard of El Taj but it looks amazing.  Make sure to come back and write a site review, you could start an El Taj wedding trend!  I am familiar with del Sol and you are one lucky couple to have them.  I think you've got everything covered, but just in case...

           

          Here are some links and tips that might make your time here on BDW more enjoyable.
           
          If you have not done so, you may want to:
           
          • complete your profile (upload a photo, add profile details, etc.)
          • visit the Newbies forum and introduce yourself
          • find the forum for your wedding destination and create a subscription to threads/members/vendors that you are interested in

           

           

          Here are some links that may be helpful to you:

            Thank you!!! I do help I find more El Taj brides! Looks like del Sol has shot most of the weddings there. In fact, they were the ones who told me about the place and recommended it so highly, so I feel really confident that I'll have an amazing day! With all the weddings they've photographed, I feel like they really know their stuff! I guess it's good that I have a year, because if I got married today, my excitement level would be so high, my vows would be in an, "only dogs can hear you squealing" pitch! I'd add bouncy smileys, but my browser is not allowing that at the moment. Just know I'm dancing over here!
