I'm a newbie!!!

Hello ladies.. I've been lurking for a while but wanted to introduce myself. My FI and I live in DC but we are from Miami and our wedding will be there  (10/15/11)
you all seem so helpful compared to other boards i've seen. I also wanted to thank you- without knowing it, u all have been a tremendous help in my wedding planning since I can't travel back and forth to Fla often.
i've gotten so many vendor rec's from you girls:
I'm pretty sure we will be using Gil Sosa for our florists & jcaruncho2011- I think we are going to use travis harris for photograhy.. how did u find him?
thanks again ladies!

    Maria, I know this is going to sound weird, but I found him randomly on google and I clicked on his link and I loved his commercial photography, as well as the images of the weddings he's shot, so I sent him an email for a quote.  I wasn't too optimistic though because I figured he'd be as expensive or more so than the other quotes I've gotten but his price was just perfect and within my budget, and he's been incredibly friendly and responsive...whenever I email him he responds right away with an email or a phone call.  He's also engaged and he's getting married about a week after I am so we just clicked from the get-go.  I saw a shoot he just did with a girl who turned 16 and I loved it...I was a little apprehensive at first because I think he's pretty new in the wedding photography business, but his commercial photography experience is vast and great, and the few weddings he has shot have produced beautiful images, so I think I made a great choice, if I do say so myself. =)

    Welcome to the board, by the way, I'm totally in love with all the girls here, they're awesome!

    Actually Rosmery, my engagement photographer is Ivan Apfel, and my wedding photographer is Travis Harris. =)  Originally I wasn't going to take engagement pictures, but Apfel had a $99 engagement shoot special that I just couldn't pass up.

    thank u ladies!
    janet: good work on the research. we loved his commercial work too and the pricing works great with our budget and he's so friendly. can't wait to see your pics!
    natalie: so far we've booked our reception/ceremony site- doubletree ocean pointe resort in sunny isles. we were in Fl in April and finalized that. right now we're trying to book the florists(gil sosa) and the dj (ubi or liquid dj's) so hard to do since we're so far away. we plan on being in miami in Oct. to finalize everything(hopefully) Our invites and save the dates are currently a work in progress :)

    That's great...the staff at the Doubletree Ocean Point is SOO awesome!! They donated a new ping pong table and alarm clocks for the shelter I work for, and they prepared Christmas & Easter dinner for the youth who stay at our shelter.  Good people!! <3 You are in good hands and it's a beautiful place!

    Sounds like you have great vendors in mind! Let us know if you need any recommendations for anything else. :)
