the good with the bad, beach washed away by hurricane, expedited govt paperwork

Recommended Posts

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 :)

 

Cheers!

But sorry to hear about your site sad.gif 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!!

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!!!

 

YEAY!!!...

    • Good afternoon, I wanted to inquire if anyone has or knows someone who got married at this resort. How was it? How are the coordinators? Packages that were chosen. Any help would be greatly appreciated.   Thanks.
    • Hi all! I know this is an old thread... but just in case there are other destination wedding brides out there with the same question, I thought I would answer! My guy and I live in Texas and just got our marriage license (yay!). We are getting married in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. The Dallas County clerk informed us that we can get our marriage license in Texas, bring it and a Texas-registered officiant to Mexico, have the ceremony in Mexico, then bring the marriage license back to Texas to file and it will be LEGAL in the US.  In  other words, we can legally get married in Mexico using our Texas marriage license and officiant (who is a family friend), then file the paperwork when we get home. Where it says 'county in which ceremony was performed' on the license, we just put in Playa del Carmen, Mexico and bam! Married :) I do not know if this is true for other states, but it is CONFIRMED for Texas! I suggest asking the clerk when you register for your marriage license. I am overjoyed that we can have a US-legal marriage in Mexico so our wedding date on our license will be the actual day! NO blood tests, or getting married before or after the trip required!  
    • Every Bride spends a lot of time researching and worrying about her perfect wedding dress. While many Indian brides choose the traditional red colour for their bridal gown, a few of them find some different colours to wear on their special day. Here is a description of how to choose an Indian wedding dress that suits your skin tone. 1) Fair complexion: You can choose any shade of blue or bright shades of pink and red. In the shades of blue- select scuba blue or royal blue. Among other colours this season, you can pick up your dress in tangerine.   2) Wheatish complexion Just select those colours which bring out the warmth in your complexion. Some of the best options for you are tangy orange, saffron yellow, vibrant shades of red, mint green and hot pink.   3) Dusky complexion: If you have an olive skin tone, then you can pull off any rich and dark colour quite well. So, the colours like classic blue, marsala, burnt orange and brick red are just perfect for you. Also the metallic silver, gold and bronze will even flatter your face pretty well
    • I will be using the hPage Website Builder to create a free website for our wedding. I am planning to post wedding updates, wedding photos, wedding reminders, and wedding articles regarding our upcoming marriage there. For RSVP, I am using Facebook events since almost all we invited have facebook and it would be easier to get their "yes" or "no" confirmation there. In case anyone is interested as well here's their site: hPage Website Builder - https://www.hpage.com
