        These pictures posted are from my wedding! Strange...I didn't know that they could get posted here without me knowing. :(

         

        Anyway, I did just get married there in May of this year. It was amazing, unbelievable. PM me if you have more questions!

          I have never been to Esencia but it looks amazing! We did extensive research on Esencia when planning our wedding, but ended up picking Le Reve instead. We are hoping to stay there for a few days on our anniversary trip next summer. Good luck and happy planning - you are so lucky to be getting married at such a beautiful, exclusive resort!

          Unless you had a special negotiation with del Sol (which would be really surprising) they have the copyright to your photos, which I believe means they can do anything they want with them. Our contract with del Sol had a model release saying that we grant them the permission to use our photos without any restriction or approval form us. I found this to be a good thing; I would love our pictures to be shared! Your wedding looked gorgeous by the way - I especially loved your hair!! Congrats on your marriage :)

            Yeah, I've heard bad things about Del Sol in my search for a photographer and decided to go with someone else. I think its terrible that they own your pictures and can exploit them. I am getting married at Escenia this year-- any words of advice? Any other vendors you used that you liked? Who did you use for flowers?

              I was married there last May and those are the photos of my wedding. I'm happy to answer any questions you might have. Getting married there was hands-down the best decision. People are still talking about it. It was a dream.

                Thank you so much! How hot was it when you were there? I am also getting married in May. What florist did you use? Anything else I should know about getting married here? We are having about 100 people so it is a fairly large wedding for a destination wedding.

                  Del Sol was actually wonderful. I admit I am still not comfortable with my pictures showing up random places, but they are really good about it and the pictures were amazing and they are wonderful people. I would hire them again in a heartbeat. 

                   

                  We used Denise from Eventos Euforia for our flowers and she was perfection. I adored her and she did the most fantastic job. It was funny, the flowers were the thing I cared about the least and they ended up being my favorite part - I loved everything she did and she had great ideas. I highly recommend her!!

                    Oh, also, it was pretty hot and humid. Like low 90's. A lot of the guests were not used to the humidity - lots of frizzy hair in the pics - but no one cared - they had the time of their lives.  I was a sweating mess by the end (but I was also a dancing fool, so that added to it). It was perfect during the ceremony. I had heard it gets very windy on the beach and whenever we had been there before we experienced that wind, but none this time. There was a nice breeze by the reception. 

                     

                    I can't think of anything you need to know except that they will do EVERYTHING for you at Esencia and they have impeccable taste. I didn't need to worry about anything at all. The DJ that they have is AMAZING, the food is just out-of-control good (everything. Literally everything). I will say though, that there is always tequila being passed around and I am positive that they water it down because if I ever, in the US, drank as much tequila as I drank down there, I'd be dead. My mother is the biggest lightweight on earth and she probably had six shots of tequila at the rehearsal dinner and she was fine. That is not normal. No one ever was sick-wasted, everyone was happy drunk, and people were doing five, six shots of tequila a night. I think it's some magic potion. Stick to beer and wine. I still have my doubts about the liquor. :)

                      Hello,

                      Here is an old thread but might help a bit.  Escencia is one of our favorite hotels to tie the knot!

                      Happy planning!
