    Welcome! I am sure you will find lots of help on this site..it is invaluble! There are tons of amazing photographers on here too.
    We also were married at the EDR, and LOVED it! We took full advantage of the "free" wedding perks they have, and as we only had 15 guests we had their inclusive dinner/reception in El Cocotal restaurant. It was really good BUT was not private, though we were all seated together and they tried really hard for us! We also used the resort photographer, and while I love my pics (the surroundings make all pics look good) he was not wonderful and we only had one hour with him Including the ceremony! I hear that EDR also charges quite a bit to have an out side photographer come in!
    Our decisions were due to budget so I guess its up to you and what your limits are? I have seen some of the outdoor receptions that the other girls have had and they look amazing!
    Good luck and congrats!

              We are having thirty people at our wedding at the EDR in Janauary.

              For the cocktail reception, we are having it beachside at Gaviotas, then moving to Tucanes for the dinner and dancing.

              For a photographer, we have hired Vincent Guihard, Sol Tamargo's associate photographer. Rather than paying the $500 fee (which by the way is not stated in the contract), we have taken the advice of Matt Adcock and are booking a room for Vincent the night of the wedding at a cost of $300. Kind of a bummer but we wanted pictures of the whole event, not just the ceremony and a short time after. There are plenty of threads on this topic in the forum.

              If you have confirmed your date and time, your WC should be able to give you all the info you need about different types of receptions available. I've read that some couples had a dessert buffet at EDR. It's not listed in the materials I got, so if you have something in mind, don't be afraid to ask.

              Good luck and have fun planning!

                Welcome to the forum! Here is a list of a few photographers in the RM area:

                Elizabeth Medina (mine!)
                Sol Tomargo
                Vanessa Vargas
                Claudia Rodriguez

                Ofcourse there is always to option of bringing your own, but that usually involves a plane ticket and other expenses
