Services Offered

Marcelo Galli Officiants offers various kinds of weddings, including vow renewals, non-denominational, interfaith, and spiritual ceremonies. Marcelo specializes in elopements, but handles both medium and large weddings as well. You can also indicate if you want your ceremony to be legal or non-legal, and your guests won't even notice.

This licensed and bilingual expert officiant offers premarital counseling and encourages couples to write their own beautiful vows if they desire. Although he's not a man of the cloth, if requested he integrates Bible passages, and serves earth-based as well as non-denominational couples. Marcelo Galli’s average ceremonies last less than 30 minutes, allowing couples plenty of time for joyous celebration.

    Pura Vida Wedding

    Marcello was great! Since I'm not from CR, we exchanged emails to reach the best ceremony speech that incorporated God and other points about us that we wanted to touch on. Marcello was always kind and fast to respond. He delivered an amazing ceremony: fun, easy, beautiful and memorable!!!

    Oh Allana! What sweet words. I had a wonderful time with Tyler and you, and such a select group of guests! Brazilians are so much fun! But what's most important is that you are happy. All the best!

    A+ Service and Communication

    Marcelo is a kind, helpful human! We were in communication with him for about a month, trying to fit in an elopement with our NYE weekend in Costa Rica. We ended up changing plans when we got there (busy busy time for all of Costa Rica during the holidays) and I was most disappointed about not being able to meet him in person. Even though we never officially utilized his services, I would strongly recommend him - that's how responsive and helpful he was. We exchanged so many emails up until the day we got there and he was always sweet and considerate. Don't second guess if you are considering. If we ever go back and decide on a re-commitment or something similar, I'm reading back out to Marcelo.

    Marcelo Galli's reply:

    Dear Tamera:
    Thanks so much for the kind words. It was a pleasure to have helped out! Even though you decided not to do the elopement, I'm satisfied that the orientation provided was useful. December 31st on one of the most popular Costa Rican beaches can be challenging to say the least, and perhaps the decision was for the best. Let me know when I can be of service in the future. My best wishes to you and Charles!
