    @moethomas8 Thank you so much for posting such detail of your special day.  I am in the process of planning my wedding at the Riu Palace in Cabo for September 2015. Did you do any of your pictures before the wedding actually started?  Is there anything else you would suggest?    I am wondering if you could send me some of your pictures since I am new to the site.

    Hi There!  We didn't have any professional pictures before the wedding because I only got the 3-hour photo/video package, which allotted just enough time for the ceremony, formal pictures and then the first part of the reception.  I just had friends take photos of getting ready.  I would suggest opting for the 5 hour photography package, because quite frankly, 3 hours was just not enough time to capture everything.  Congrats!!

      @lunapow67, It's totally possible!  But it would of course be best if you could see all of the different locations for ceremony and reception in person.   My husband and I took a mini vacation to the resort (I had stayed there previously, but he had never been) prior to confirming our wedding and we made arrangements to meet with the wedding coordinator while we were there.  She took us to all of the different possible on-site venues and detailed the pro's/con's and costs of each.  It was very helpful and a lot of fun too!!

        I have clients which also happen to be my niece and nephew getting married at Riu Santa Fe in Cabo in 2 months. I'm a travel agent and have been helping them with most travel related aspects of this trip, however we are now needing some additional info on a few things and am hoping you can help us.

        First did you have a legal ceremony or symbolic?

        I'm looking for someone who has done the legal ceremony. We need some questions answered about it.

        I've done some research for them on the marriage application. I've read you get that there. However, my nieces friends are telling her she needs marriage license from our home state of California. I've read and reread the info from resort that she sent her and it says no where do they need to bring or send this from home. I know they need the passports, birth certificates and such but that's all I read. Can you shed some light on this?

        Also I read that the blood tests are paid for separate from everything in the package. Is this correct? She is getting the caprice package and I see the minister and marriage certificate are included but nothing about blood tests and I need to prepare her for that expense once again.

        Any info would be awesome. You can post or email me directly at candielally@c2sandvacations.com.

        I've only assisted with 2 destination weddings since I became an agent and the other was symbolic so they married at home after the wedding in Cabo.
