Weddings and Honeymoons

Symbolic Wedding Ceremonies

Many wedding couples choose to be legally married in the United States, preceded or followed by a symbolic wedding ceremony in resort with family and friends. Symbolic weddings are less costly, and a great choice for busy couples that prefer to bypass the gathering and completion of documentation required for a legally-binding ceremony in a foreign country.

Legally-Binding Wedding Ceremonies
