Diane and Kyle 's Wedding

237462

We highly recommend a destination wedding in Puerto Rico! The language and culture provide a foreign atmosphere, yet guests don't need a passport. Old San Juan is gorgeous and the nearby Condado are provides a tropical beach scene. Planning can be tough and frustrating from such a distance, but in the end it's well worth it. Just accept their, "relax, it will get done" vibe, because, it DOES all work out.

Photographers

Based in Chicago, but also operating in PR, Photography by Lin was an affordable and high quality company I would recommend. Communication was easy and the photographers were professional and fun. Also, they are US based and spoke great English. Our photos were available online about two weeks after the wedding, although it took about a month to get actual prints.

Orchid Pavilion
San Juan,
Florists

(787) 727-0479: small flower shop located in Condado. Great for flowers for the bridal party. Very inexpensive. I just went in the day before the wedding and it was no problem. They created the bouquets on the morning of the wedding and my friend stopped by to pick them up. Not sure if they do ceremony or reception decorations but, if they don't, they can probably recommend someone who can.

Adames Luxury Transportation
San Juan,
Limos/Shuttles

I requested quotes from several companies and found Adames to be the most inexpensive by far. They charged per van, not per hour like most other companies. They were easy to communicate with to set up the transportation, prompt, extremely professional, and all around wonderful. Despite major street closings due to a festival, they still managed to be everywhere right on time and went the extra mile for great service.

Ministros de Bodas
San Juan,
Officiants

Offers options for religious, semi-religous, or non religious ceremonies. Affordable and friendly. If you speak no Spanish, it might be useful to use the package where they take you to fill out your paper work and have your blood tests certified. We did it on our own with no trouble, but at many points had to speak Spanish.

At Windchimes Inn
San Juan,
Rehearsal Lunch/Dinner

Windchimes inn has a cute private patio above their Tiki bar that was a perfect fit for our rehearsal with about 20 people. The chef, Danny, was amazing and went above and beyond what we had imagined. We had a full spread of heavy appitizers and they even threw in two free drinks for everyone. Our guests are still raving about the food.

Picture perfect! Amazing old fort at the end of Old San Juan overlooking the water. Not too easy to reserve- you have to book with the National Park Service. Decorations aren't allowed. They prefer smaller groups. We had about 20. We found they're more leniant if you do it on the grass outside the actual fort. You can then pay the $3 admission fee to go in the fort and take pictures. We gave our guests admission passes and they explored while we took pictures. It worked out well for everyone. Be warned,its windy!! Also, it's very warm. You'll want to hand out water to all your guests. Only fee was $50 permit application plus site insurance that cost a few hundred. You may have to pay for park personnel as well. Only downside- there's not much in terms or rain location. We had no problems, but they said if it did rain, we could just wait until it passed.

Only cafe with an oceanview in Old San Juan. Located across from Forte San Cristobal. Good, authentic food. They let you hook an ipod to their speaker system. Easy to work with.
