Travel Agent: Marty
What made you decide on the resort/venue? It was the advice of our travel agent, Marty, that made us decide the resort. Plus we read reviews and the fact that Iberostar only hosts one wedding a day. That was nice to know that my wedding day would be the only one they were focusing on.
Who was your photographer, and if you had one, your videographer? My photographer was O'Neal and he worked for the Photo Shop which had a facility within the Iberostar resort. The same company did our video as well. Completely satisfied with both. The video couldn't have turned out better. Having a few issues with it playing on my computer once getting home, but requested for a replacement.
What was the biggest difficulty in planning your destination wedding? I guess the biggest difficulty is not having a lot of control over the logistics of the wedding ceremony until you get to your destination. I felt much more at ease after meeting with the wedding coordinator the day before and ironing out all of the details. I found it a bit difficult trying to communicate via email prior to the wedding. But everything turned out fantastic.
What was the highlight of the experience? My wedding day =) It literally couldn't have turned out any better.
Biggest surprise? I'm not sure what the biggest would be. Very surprised at how good my hair turned out, had it done at the resort salon. Very impressed with the minister who did a fantastic job! And that we got to do a first dance on the beach! And maybe how good the wedding video turned out.
If your best friend were planning a destination wedding what would your advice be to her? Just to stay relaxed, plan ahead and take it all in ... because the moment is over before you know it.
I also attached some pictures in case you wanted to see. There are obviously a TON of them, but just sent my favorites. Thank you for the recommendation on the resort and all your help with the planning. My wedding was perfect and was truly the happiest day of my life. Thank you for your part in that!
