    Our 11/12 /09 Marriott Wedding...we had a blast!!!!

    On November 12th we got married at the Aruba Marriott and Stellaris Casino. We had a blast It far exceeded our expectations.!!!!! It was more than we could of ever imagined.. First I have to start by thanking the wedding planner Desiree Bikker and her associates Helen and Corinne..They made it happen.... everything went so smoothly . I worked with Desiree for 6 months over the phone and through email. I sent her fabric swatches for the color of the runner and pictures of how I wanted the table set with lanterns and the flowers.. She got every detail down perfect... She knew exactly what I wanted. She was a pleasure to work with as well as Corinne and Helen.. I trusted Desiree from the DJ to the florist, steel drum, etc...... First I used Knipoog for my hair and makeup.. They did an excellent job.. Rubia (hair )and Elene (make up )came to the room . They were so sweet and had great energy... As soon as I showed them pictures they knew exactly what I wanted... They were done in an hour an only charged 150.00 I was so happy with the way it turned out. We had Reverend Gibson who was very moving, everyone loved the ceremony.... Victor Winklaar was our photographer he was so nice and he gave us the pictures before we left with the cd.. I loved his modern flair to them. We held the ceremony and reception on the beach, we had 22 guests and one long table...It made it feel very cozy and dancing in the sand was a lot of fun.... The food was superb we had a sit down dinner with filet mignon and lobster tail. The lobster was like butter.. At the cocktail hour I have never seen such big shrimp...they were delicious. The DJ Marc Benson and Steel drum Tico and were excellent. All the staff was wonderful. We had excellent service and the bartender Dufy was so much fun!!!We had such a good time dancing that I went into the water at the end wedding dress and all. And to top it off so did the 22 guests.. The memories are priceless. If any brides are on the fence about a destination wedding I would say go for it you will make wonderful memories that will last a lifetime.... I can have a very type A personality but once I arrived in Aruba and handed out the gift bags it was free sailing... I was so relaxed and enjoyed every minute before during and after the wedding...when do you get the chance to enjoy so many close friends and family .And one last thank you to Desiree and the staff for doing and Amazing job!!!


    p.s. we used bully cab service bullytaxi@hotmail.com he did a great job he picked us up with all our luggage , wedding dress etc....


    I added even more pictures below

    Thankyou, Serena and Jaime

    Hi there,
    As I started reading your post, I wondered to myself if you and your new hubby were the couple I met at the casino. Sure enough.....when I saw your pictures, I"m like "that's them!!". LOL! We are the couple from Rhode Island and I played black jack with your new hubby at the casino. Best of luck and hope to see you guys back for your anniversary We've already confirmed our reservations for our return!
