    Thanks for the recommendations for photographers.  Did any of you use the hotel photographer? If so, how was that?

        Hey peeps! Didn't quite know where to land this inquiry, some "ceremony times" threads seem quite dead. Our amazing photographer to be, Gonzalo, has kindly mentioned that sunset is Around 530 in Mexico in march. Unfortunately I set our ceremony for 4pm a while back at the GSP, and there are several other weddings so no way to move our time now. However, getting pics from 430 to 530 seems very tight for bridal party pics, family pics, and couples ones. I am trying not to let myself feel like I ruined this day (yes I am feeling dramatically bad about this), but I am worries about pics. Any input on this? Suggestions on how to work around this? Much thanks ladies !

        Hi MrsS!

         

        We had a similar situation for our wedding last November - 4pm ceremony, sun set around 5:30pm. Our photog flew through the formal shots with our family & friends, and then we had plenty of time before/as the sun set for couples photos (we didn't have a bridal party).


        Can you take bridal party and family pics before the ceremony? You could do them separately if you aren't planning to see MrS. before the ceremony. Then the only ones you have after the ceremony would be the combined bridal party, family, and then bride and groom. And if you're planning on a first look (which I highly recommend!!), you may be able to get a lot of the couples photos out of the way before hand.

         

        It does require bumping back your getting-ready time, but it certainly can be done!!

          Allie! Thank you very very much for your quick and helpful response. I've learned with this process that things can somehow work out, ya just gotta juggle some ideas around! And you've helped me see that:) so thank you! We will definitely look to do a first look, which I've thought about as being helpful regarding shots, and I think doing some bridal party shots individually would be great. I have no issue getting ready earlier! Plus I don't plan to need tons of time anyways:) I have emailed Gonzalo Nunez about the firm time we have, and I am also sure he will have some helpful ideas! Thanks again:):)
