I blocked 22 rooms 2 weeks ago and they are all full already (2 per room) and thats not including my fiance family which is from jamaica. so our $ is adding up quick lol especially since the Ultimate package is only for 20 people. We pretty much decided beach for ceremony and ballroom for reception.

Yes I did get a quote from the Seawind.  They want you to pay a venue fee which is negotiable.  Then you have a choice of menus which vary in price from $40pp-$80pp.  If you would like pm me and I will send you the information that I received.  The way I see it I am still sending about the same amount of money and it gives us more flexibility as to what we will and will not use.  I will also try to post some pics in a few.

I am having mine on the beachfront casita...My friend had hers at SSJ last year...we have 20 people so the gazebo is not big enough. She had 13 and the gazebo was so squished it was uncomfortable!

So exciting!!!!!  I would love to see any pictures from the St. James side you have.  I am getting married there on 11/1/13.  If you don't mind me asking how much extra was it for your flowers?  I was looking to getting fuchsia dendrobiums.  What are you doing for music for your ceremony and reception?
