~ Bride Interview ~
"I want to start by saying thank you for all your help with making my dreams come true with my destination wedding. When I first came into your office I was so stressed I did not know what I was doing or how I was going to do it. By the time I left I had a place, date, and time. I had a contact to the wedding coordinator to start the plans. I was so relieved and excited. You followed me through the whole process – you were patient with me and all my family and friends as we tried to work out all of the travel arrangements for everyone. As many times as I called you and emailed you – you never made me feel like I was ever bothering you.
The website you set up for us was awesome with a link to the hotel brochure for everyone to see. The Hotel was awesome, the staff was excellent, the wedding coordinator was absolutely wonderful, the photographer was awesome and the food was great! It could not have been more beautiful and perfect!"Thank you so much for your kind words Anne! It was truly an honor to be part of your special day. Okay, first question, what made you decide on having a destination wedding?
Kevin has been married before and I have not. We decided to do something different. I have always dreamed of a ocean side wedding and this was perfect and absolutely beautiful!What made you decide on the resort/venue?
We had visited Dreams Cancun Resort and Spa once before and loved it. Terrah gave us many options with hotels but decided Dreams Cancun was it.Who was your photographer, and if you had one, your videographer?
Juan w/ juanphotos.com was our photographer. He was great. He met with us a few days before the wedding to talk about what kind of pictures we wanted. On the day of the wedding he made sure we did not feel rushed and was patient with everyone. He and his staff started taking pictures before everyone started the seating and did not stop until he felt like he had captured everything. His staff handled the Video as well and it was awesome. They made sure to put the music we requested to be played while people were seating before the ceremony on the video.What was the biggest difficulty in planning your destination wedding?
Deciding on the place!What was the highlight of the experience?
The Wedding of Course – I was so nervous – I was actually a mess – it was perfect – thanks to Terrah and Legacy Travel, Claudia, Juan, and the whole staff of Dreams Cancun Resort and Spa!Biggest surprise?
Working with Claudia, the Wedding coordinator on all the specifics – She was great . We were a little apprehensive on making wedding plans with someone so far away. Claudia made those fears go away quickly. We emailed back and forth and talked on the phone during the whole planning process. With her no question was a dumb question. She met with me on several occasions when I got to Mexico to make sure everything was going as planned and made sure all my last minute changes were accommodated. She was awesome – she made sure.
I did not have to worry about anything. I was very surprised on how easy she made this for us.If your best friend were planning a destination wedding what would your advice be to her?
Plan ahead – the Earlier the better and Call Terrah with Legacy Travel – she will make everything happen.
