It isn't a matter of requesting areas for pictures. But there were certain areas that I really wanted to have photos done, one of which was the pier. Their stupid system let me book the pier in the first place, but then they emailed that the system shouldn't have let me do that and it wasn't available. But now we can't have any photos there at all because the wedding that is also taking the Zky Terrace is having their cocktail stuff on the pier. So we got messed up for both locations. We can only have our renewal at 5 pm because there is a wedding before us, unless we want to go at like 1pm, which is a no go. Then we can't even do pre-ceremony photos on the pier because they're going to be setting up by 3:30 pm for the cocktails that the Zky Terrace wedding is going to have. The terrace is pretty but even the Sky Deck is booked so we can't even go up there. I do NOT want to go down to the beach and have a bunch of people staring so the garden is out but I want water background for sure. Plus we found out that being stuck with a 5 pm time means we get all of about an hour for photos before the sun sets at about 6:20. I want sunset shots, but I don't want to be pressured for everything else before hand. Plus as suspected, because we have a small group, in order to get something private we have to pay for a minimum of 16. That's pretty much double what our number will be.
The resort looks beautiful for staying there, but the whole thing has just left me with a bad taste. I'm already looking into other options.
