    Welcome home Bride. Sorry our weather has been a mess. Below zero temps for the last couple of days. :(

    Soooooo excited to hear that you had a Wonderful and Beautiful Wedding. Do you remember who was your actual photographer with Adventure? Your pics are amazing ... Thanks for sharing.

    What time did your wedding start and your what time did your reception start at Seaside Grill? Also did you pay extra for the column drapery inside Seaside Grill?

    Any advice you can give us Bride-to-Be...

    Thanks and Feel Better Soon.

    @nattiegams325 your pictures are amazing! Your wedding looked beautiful. Thank you for sharing! We'll be having our reception at the Seaside Grill so it was great to see what it'll look like. I was wondering what time was your reception. My worry is that the seaside grill opens at 8pm and my ceremony is at 4:30 (because I want photographs when it is still bright out), there will be an big time gap between ceremony and reception. I wonder if we need to extend the cocktail hour or something. Hope you feel better soon!

    @Dec2015 my photographer was Karolina, and while her pics were beautiful she was so unfriendly and left out a ton of details from the wedding: the guitarist, menus, personalized maracas, the finished sand ceremony jar, etc. I had to constantly tell her the shots I wanted and she acted bored and annoyed all day. She also did our welcome dinner and there is not even one picture of Bill and I. I made a complaint to my WC and to Adventure Photos. My advice is to tell the photographer everything you want and don't worry about sounding overbearing. I wish I would've spoken up more.

    Yes the drapery was an extra $500. Everything you see if ala carte: drapery, lighting, chandelier, candles, table runners, etc.

    @bitbitz Wedding at 5, cocktail at 6:30, and they got permission for me to start the reception at 7:30-10:30 at the Seaside Grille.

    @nattiegams325 Natalie!!! I just want to say congratulations again and your pictures are PERFECT!!!!!!! i'm sooooo happy for you and that it turned out great. I love the little details you had, I feel like I've studied your pictures already !! :) I wasn't sure how the multicolor maracas would look, like if they would clash with our colors but they looked great so I really can't wait to get mine! Did you have any issues with Maracas Mexico delivering to the resort? Do you remember the name of your officiant? Is Karolina apart of Adventure?

    @nattiegams325 Congratulations!! Everything about your wedding looked perfect and you looked beautiful!! I also LOVE all the details you had, from the ceremony to the reception. Color scheme and flowers were so classy and chic, exactly what I want. I originally planned on having my reception in the ballroom and after seeing your pictures, I want to change it to Seaside Grill! :)

     

    Thanks so much for sharing your pics! Feel better!

      Seaside Grill has always been my number one reception choice. After seeing your pictures I'm willing to say no to the lighted dance floor and put that money towards the Seaside Grill rental fee.

      How was the weather at night? I really would like any past Nov,Dec,Jan, and Feb brides to chime in on how cool it gets at night and also I'm curious on two weddings on the same day what the plan is for two receptions going on at same time. Does the music clash from the receptions.

      @nattiegams325 LOVE YOUR PICS! Everything looked perfect!! Were you able to negotiate any of the prices. Were there things that they gave you for free?
