    Ok, so i've spent a week down in mexico to take care of my house, and work on some wedding planning. The last time I tried to work on my wedding planning, Hurricane dean said otherwise: check out this blog post Matt Adcock Photography Blog to see why I was evacuating!

    Well, before I evacuated, I had a week planned to do wedding planning stuff... That obviously didnt get done, so now I have returned and am having meetings, went to do a site visit yesterday and WOW, HOLY COW BATMAN. The beach is gone... now all rocks. not good. 100% makeover due to the hurricane. This makes me sad as we may be choosing another location... thousands down the drain on a deposit... I am meeting with my coordinator today, Yazmin de Lamora, and we are going to visit different villas for site visits... How cool is she for doing this with me? I'll let you know how it goes.

    now for the goooood news :)

    On another note for those of you who don't know our personal situation at home... Sol & I got married on June 2. We did this because of the legal process to apply for a visa for her in the US.. A green card and a travel permit. She entered the country on May 23 and budget 5 months of NO WORK through Oct 25 for this process. Last week we FINALLY received the receipt that they are working on our application and that we should expect 60-90 days MORE from sept 11, to process our request... WHAT? Ok, so I wrote a letter, citing her 8 remaining contracts in 2007 and the urgent need to expedite the application. I sent this letter to my GA Senator and the offices that received our application, sent on Monday last week. yesterdays, we received notice that they ARE EXPEDITING OUR APPLICATION :) YEAY YEAY YEAY YEAY YEAY :) so happy now!

    Good things do happen :)

    Congrats on the good news Matt, that stinks about the beach though. I am sure you guys will find an amazing location however.

            Yeah! Happy to hear your application is getting expediated! you would have thought!

            But sorry to hear about your site that is really too bad - because that was a beautiful location (I checked it out!) I am sure that you will find something else, or make this one work. Either way - it will be beautiful!!

            No more beach...

            Lucky for both of you that you know the area. I am certain that you will find another great spot !

              Matt and Yazming where scounting for locations all day today; they haven't found anything like Secret Jewels, that is so lush in vegetation.

              They went back today, and it seems that people is working trying to make the beach look nicer, so maybe we will stay there after all.

              I'm sooo excited that I may get my papers soon, so I can go personally and take care of business!... I found a great designer in Cancun that is going to make my dress... as I have the idea on my mind.., so I'm thrilled to know that I'm coming back home!!!
