        I'm sad to see the pink go too! I was looking forward to some shots with it in the background. I thought it was beautiful. Oh well. It still looks beautiful.

          Thank you girls...I wasnt really looking at the color hahahaha I was lost in the beauty of the place. Isnt that funny. I will say, we used a soft coral for the other main color against the white. I can not tell you new brides to be how beautiful it is there. The pics will not ever do it justice. If you look back at all the brides before you at LC...you will see things you like and think how awesome. But when you stand there you have no camea or video that can truly capture what its like to stand there and lookout. In looking at the pink it looks so pretty and festive, in looking at the gold it looks so warm and easy feeling. It was so pretty, so lit up in candles that highlighted everyone and one guest said "it was a guy" look at everyone to Chris, "they look beautiful and like angels" now this is a guy in his 20's who in his eyes was seeing the candles, the white, the palm trees, the ocean softly coming against the shore. It was absolutely............A B S O L U T E L Y...unbelievable. Another guest: another guy said come back for me tomorrow Im not ready to go. Just wait. You'll see. Enjoy it, "If I can leave with one thing to you, ENJOY IT" it comes quickly and then its a beautiful memory. I think you will love the color btw it blended in with the natural scenery and gives a glow to everything. The next bride I didnt do, sorry please take pics of the suite and spa in detail for the girls upcoming. I was going to do this but I soooo got caught up in everything. Maybe our guests will have some other shots. I still have to figure out out to load the pics to a link here? does anyone know. Otherwise I will everyday kind of add new ones to see things until I figure it out. Otherwise I'll email them to you if you want to see that way via a private message w/ your email. Well, Im still sorting out things. But it sure was a pleasure to be there. People thought we paid a LOT of money for our wedding there. Shhhhhhhhhhh I didnt tell. hahahaha

            These pics are: Of course the dinner area and the seating for the wedding. I believe Nicole mentioned those white columns w/ are fabric being an arbor soon. You will have to double check that. It was quite elegant. I had no idea they were doing renovation on the site, but it was okay either way with color.

            The second pic is the back of the wedding suite. The hammock but on that ledge is a whirlpool for the ladys. Maybe 6 in it. Very nice and some did enjoy that feature.

            The third is: On the left side of the main serving tables. We had guests on the left then the middle of the main bldg and then on the right down a small slope nearer the ocean. It was gorgeous all of it.

            The third is: I am standing against the mirror and dressing area to shoot that shot. It is also at the back door of the suite where the whirlpool and hammock are. Looking toward the right is a L shaped sofa and table. You cant see it but to the right of my shoulder is the bath area. 2 shower heads/toilet/hanging closet for your dress(s)

            They brought up an adaptor to plug in more hairdryers and rollers. It all worked out great. BTW I wore my hair down and it looked a mess. Not because it was blowing or humid but I didnt take enough time to work on it. So ladies be sure and take care of YOU first. I was trying to be the hostess...big mistake on my part. And I should have brought some powder down to the beach area because you can see in my pics Im shining on the face from sweating. Those are all my own doings so I can only just laugh about it. But I didnt get the beautiful photos I wished I did for Chris and I together. but make sure you do I also bought another dress and changed into it halfway through the reception. Im sooooooooo glad I did that. My dress is so dirty at the bottom. hahaha

              I can't see the pics :o(

              I know what you mean, time flies! I brought those rice paper sheets to blot the oil and left them in my luggage in the casita so they did me no good for the pics....lol

              I bet the new color really glows by candle light, but I agree it doesn't matter what color it is when you're there you could care less!

                I'm getting married on Las Caletas this May and can't wait. Your pictures were beautiful! I really love your flowers with the seashells. Did you do that yourself? I'd love to do something similar!

                  Hi Thank you. We loved Las Caletas. My bouquet was done by the staff at Las Caletas. Its part of the pkg: my bouquet, his bout., 1 medium table arrangement. I showed Nicole and Kelley a picture of the bouquet I wanted and they came as close to what I asked for. I was pleased with the design. :)
                  Just be specific about the flowers and design. I think they can pretty much design from your pic. Their flowers were really pretty. My Mom and I went to a little open trading center for the locals around the corner from Sams. WE purchased for $60US some roses, lilies, a spring bouquet. We made corsages, rose petals for the walk way to the alter, toss bouquet. We had a blast because their flowers were so pretty. Have Fun :)

                    ok I don't want tobe personal but how do we tip Las Caletas WC and staff? how much and so forth? does anyone know. We are on a budget so we have to put the $$$ in our allowance. Thanks

                      $10 per person should already be included in your contract. That goes to the waitstaff and staff that sets up the wedding. This is a minimum of $300 though- so if you don't have 30 guests, you will pay $300.

                      I tipped Nicole $100. Not sure if that was enough, but that's what we did. We tipped Brad the minister $50.
