Photographer and Videographer

We highly recommend hiring a professional photographer and videographer for your wedding. We do not have any affiliation with one single company, but we have found that our recommended vendor list does excellent work and their teams are always reliable. Please contact your wedding coordinator for more details.

Marrying in Costa Rica is often easier than marrying in the states. You do not have to be in the country for any specific amount of time and the ceremony is legal worldwide. However, you will need to contact the officiant prior to your trip to Costa Rica.

We recommend Marcelo Galli for the ceremony. He will produce all of the paperwork, perform the ceremony, file the paperwork, translate and send you the documents once they have been processed. He speaks excellent English and performs a very nice ceremony. The paperwork can take up to 12 weeks to be processed. Please keep in mind, you will need to pay him directly and he only accepts checks or cash.

Contact Marcelo at marcelo@costaricamarriageofficiants.com. He can also do wedding vow renewals

The Bride and Groom are responsible for both the HIRING AND PAYMENT of both the Officiant and the Photographer.
