Anna was the best wedding officiant ever!!!
Anna was the best wedding officiant ever!!! We had an elopement ceremony in 2 languages. Anna created a customized speech for us. We are so grateful!!! She explained every detail of the ceremony to us - she helped with holding the bouquet, holding the rings and much more!!!Sent on 10/20/2020

When we first contacted Riviera Maya Officiant, we had a good idea of what we wanted our ceremony to look like, but were lacking in some details. We had already looked at the options through our resort, but they didn't meet our expectations.Sent on 02/13/2019
Riviera Maya Officiant was able to help us create an affordable package, with transportation, at a beautiful beach. Anna officiated the ceremony for us and we couldn't be happier. She was professional, passionate, and very engaged in every word that was said. She made the overall experience exactly what we envisioned, and for that we couldn't be more grateful. We would highly recommend their services.

Super professional! Russian speaking!
The girls both speak Russian which was such a nice surprise for my (Russian) in laws. They made a beautiful script and added a few lines in Russian. They were super professional, responsive, and helped me out so much with finding other vendorsSent on 12/13/2018

Almost didn’t happen!
Thank you Christian Carballo for writing our vows and Rodolfo Lozano for officiating, My husband and I were scheduled for a 5pm beach ceremony to renew our vows, however, my husband needed emergency Dr. care. Rodolfo waited patiently and was finally able to perform the ceremony once my husband was cleared by the Dr. Very professional and patient!Sent on 10/16/2018

We found Riviera Maya Officiant through weddingwire.com. We contacted them and immediately knew we would hire them. They customized our ceremony and the draft they send us was perfect. We did not change anything. We have a meeting scheduled at a Starbucks close to our hotel to go over the flow of the ceremony however, our flight was delayed. I texted her as soon as I arrived and she was so accommodating- she offered to meet us at our hotel lobby, very sweet of her. We were at the lobby so most of our guests were arriving that evening and she was patient through all the interruptions.Sent on 06/13/2018
During the ceremony, she took her time and did not rush through. Our 80 plus guests said they loved how personalized our ceremony was.
Great job. I would highly recommend these wonderful team.
Kelvin and Caroline.
Riviera Maya Officiant's reply:Dear Caroline and Kelvin, thank you for your kind words and for your confidence in our ability to deliver. We have enjoyed working with you and being part of your big day. We wish you both a lifetime of happiness!

Anna was a fantastic officiant. She made our ceremony feel special and romantic. She was professional and ready to help us begin our new journey as a couple. I would highly recommend for anyone holding a wedding in the Yucatan area.Sent on 06/18/2018

We were celebrating our 35th wedding anniversary at a resort in Riviera Maya and searched the internet for someone who could provide that special touch to our ceremony. We were so fortunate to find Riviera Maya Officiant. Anastasia performed our very quiet and quaint ceremony right on the beach with a unity sand ceremony. She put together a very nice and personal written ceremony for us and it was very touching. She responded to all of our communications VERY quickly which made us feel like she was the best choice. Did not want to use the Resort wedding package because we did not feel it would be personalized for us. Plus the fee was reasonable for the service provided. We also received a nice professional looking vow renewal certificate which is now framed. Anastasia also took some great pics of us with our Iphone afterwards and she also did a great video while talking at the same time when we did the unity sand ceremony. We have a nice heart shaped glass container in our home with the Pink and Beach sand to remember the great ceremony. Thank you so much! We hope we are blessed to celebrate our 40th there and we will be calling Riviera Maya Officiant again for that ceremony. Thank so much!Sent on 06/12/2018
Riviera Maya Officiant's reply:Thank you for your kind words, Mary! It was my pleasure being part of your special day and I look forward to seeing you both again for your 40th anniversary!

I found Anastasia & Riviera Maya Officiant when I was researching elopements in the area. The resort we were staying at "customized" wedding packages but they were not to our liking; plus, they were not very responsive. Anastasia however replied to every email and every question I had within the hour, if not sooner! She asked me what I wanted and she arranged everything for me. Flowers were gorgeous. San ceremony was perfect. Photographer was the BEST! Anastasia was very professional and very kind. She helped us put together a memorable and intimate wedding ❤️ I definitely recommend!!Sent on 10/27/2017

My groom and I were very happy with your service! Sweet Anna took care of everything in Playa del Carmen while we were still in Texas. I told her I just wanted a simple ceremony and how I wanted it to happen. I told her when we were arriving in Mexico. We coordinated everything via email. She gave me the date and time of the ceremony. When the day came, the very nice driver picked up all 8 of us from our hotel, and brought us to the beach. Anna met us at the beach with my beautiful bouquet, and boutonneires for the men. She also brought a great Photographer with her. We had a beautiful ceremony and most importantly, it was STRESS FREE! All we had to do was to show up on The Day! Thank You so much Anna and Wedding Wire for turning our Simple Commitment Ceremony into a Beautiful and Unforgettable one!Sent on 08/01/2017
With so much Gratitude,
Mr. and Mrs. Gray

Ruby Ann · Married on 07/18/2017
Thank you for making our Commitment Ceremony beautiful, effortless, and stress free coordinating the whole thing with you via email. You made it so easy for me, especially, us coming in from a different country, where I had to prepare everything and everyone by myself. I was a little stressed on my side getting ready, ordering our beach attire online, alterations, etc. At least when it came to the ceremony, all I had to worry about was the date and time. YOU took care of EVERYTHING that needed to happen before we even got there and on the day of. We just showed up and VOILA! Everything was taken care of!Sent on 08/09/2017
You were Amazing and we were Very Happy and Amazed with your service! Your Photographer was Wonderful! I just wanted to let you know that! THANK YOU SO MUCH for making our Special Day SO VERY SPECIAL!!!

I was looking all over the Riviera Maya for someone who spoke perfect English and Spanish and I was having trouble finding someone who was truly bilingual, until I found Anastasia. She responded to my emails right away, and was super professional. We were able to meet her in person, and she was great! Anastasia clearly knows what she is doing, she gave us great tips (in terms of our bilingual wedding request), and has tons of expertise. Our wedding ceremony was perfect!! We were super happy with everything. I truly recommend Riviera Maya Officiant's services.Sent on 08/02/2017
Riviera Maya Officiant's reply:Dear Stephie and Mitch, thank you very much for your trust in my abilities to carry out your ceremony. Your wedding was gorgeous and I've enjoyed being part of your special day! We wish you the best of happiness!

Riviera Maya Officiant was wonderful! We had a May wedding at Xpu Ha Beach. I had tons of questions since this was a destination wedding and they answered every single one on the same or next day. They made it so easy for me. I called other wedding planners before finding them and what they offer for the price cannot be beat! We had a great experience!!! I highly recommend them.Sent on 06/14/2017

After speaking with Anna and Anastasia I felt so comfortable with everything. They reassured me that everything would be taken care of and made arrangements for makeup/hair, flowers, and photography so we only needed to show up and enjoy the day. Their attention to detail and all inclusive service was so nice and made the day very relaxed and stress free. They were always prompt with email and made the day so perfect for us. We highly recommend working with Riviera Maya Officiant, very professional and genuine. They brought so much warmth to our wedding in Tulum with a lovely ceremony and vows. Thank you for making the experience so memorable for us!Sent on 06/18/2017

I highly recommend having Riviera Maya Officiants lead your wedding! My partner and I had the pleasure of working with Anna to create a beautiful, personalize ceremony on the beaches of Tulum, MX. We worked together to create the script and setting with Anna over a few months via email prior to our wedding. Her attention to email was outstanding; very responsive and patient with back and forth questions. She gave us some great recommendations, which helped make our wedding day exactly how we visualized it. The in-house photographer, Anna's husband, did an amazing job on the photos. We received about 200 well-shot photos approx. 3 weeks following our wedding to share with our friends and family.Sent on 05/10/2017
Being that my partner and I are two women getting married in a different country where we've never been before was daunting. But after working with Anna through email, then in-person, we were no different than a traditional couple. It was a huge relief and a breath of fresh air! Their welcoming us the way they did really made a big difference. Anna and her husband also went above and beyond to get the perfect photos we described, using colorful chairs, climbing huge rocks, walking in the water, then finding a secret mural behind the hotel, which turned out to be some of our favorite photos.
If you choose to have Riviera Maya Officiants and photographer lead your wedding and capture all the special moments, you will be pleased you did!
Riviera Maya Officiant's reply:Ohh Carrie, Rachael! Thank you very much from the bottom of my heart for these touching words of gratitude. As I already told you we are looking forward to see you again in beautiful Tulum's beach for your 10 or 15 years vow renewal ceremony. Well...of course you are more than welcome to come back earlier. Lol. Sincerely yours , Riviera Maya Officiant team.

I would definitely recommend them!! Anna was amazing! The ceremony was so perfect and felt like it was written just for us!! We let them know what we were looking for and they took care of the rest! There was no planning on our part, they looked after everything. Communication by email was fantastic and very prompt responses. We were never left guessing or wondering what needed to be done next! Transportation was great!Sent on 03/01/2017
Alicia · Married on 02/10/2017
We weren't sure if we needed an officiant, because originally thought we would have a family member do it. I am SO GLAD that we got an officiant who knew exactly what they were doing, how many songs were needed for the ceremony and how long it should take. I also wanted it to be personal, which is hard when doing everything long distance - but they did a great job of incorporating 'our story' into the ceremony. They were very professional, on time, and provided excellent services. We are so glad that we chose Rivera Maya Officiant!Sent on 03/01/2017

Anastasia and her team did an amazing job. She responded to all my emails and calls very fast. The ceremony scrip was perfect, as if it was written for us! I was worried about having an officiant who's english wasn't perfect, but Anastasia speaks like a native! I am very please. Highly recommend them!Sent on 02/12/2017

Anna and Anastasia helped us organizing our welcome reception event at the villa where we were staying, as well as our officiating our wedding ceremony in January 2017, at Akiin beach club in Tulum. The officiant company my wedding planner worked with charged an arm and a leg for a simple ceremony (we were already legally married in our home country and only needed a symbolic ceremony), so I started looking for alternatives outside of what was offered by my wedding planner. RMO's price was reasonable and as an added bonus they were multilingual! Our guests were coming from 3 different countries, some didn't speak fluent English, so this was so special for us to be able to include several paragraphs in different languages into the ceremony. Anna and Anastasia worked diligently with us prior to the wedding, to create a custom ceremony script we could relate to. Everyone was saying afterwards how heartfelt and beautiful it was.Sent on 03/17/2017
In addition to the wedding ceremony, I hired RMO to organize the welcome party that we held at the villa we were staying at 2 days prior to the big day. RMO has a sister company Mango Weddings & Events. Once again, Anna and Anastasia were extremely flexible, creative, and organized; they demonstrated initiative, listened to us, understood our vision, and catered to that instead of a preconceived idea or something they did before. We ended up with a fun and well managed event that included top notch mariachis, authentic taco cart, and bartender services, - all reasonably negotiated with local vendors and for a reasonable fee.

My husband and I are from Los Angeles and we were already planning on a trip to Tulum when we decided to get married. I found Riviera Maya Officiant on Wedding Wire, and was very impressed with all of the reviews. From reaching out, to emailing, to planning, to the actual day, I could not be more pleased with how everything went. Anna and Anastasia not only quickly responded to all of my inquiries, but they were there for me throughout the entire process, even though they were an ocean away. They were kind, patient and understanding when I changed my mind a few times on various details, and always gave me a heads up when something changed on their end. Everything they arranged looked even better than the pictures, and made our wedding day so perfect and special. The ceremony they prepared was everything we could have wanted, my hair and make-up looked better and lasted longer than any other hair and make-up I've had done as a bridesmaid at several other LA / San Diego weddings, and the photographer was so wonderful, letting us explore and pose to our hearts content.Sent on 01/09/2017
Riveria Maya Officiant gave us the elopement of our dreams, and gave us a day we will remember fondly for the rest of our lives! If you are considering a destination wedding or an elopement with Riviera Maya Officiant, do not hesitate a moment longer. Best decision of our lives!
Riviera Maya Officiant's reply:Thank you for your kind words, Julie! It was our pleasure to help you make your day special! Much love and happiness to you on your new journey together as husband and wife!

We found Anna and Anastasia via Google and reached out to them because of previous favorable reviews. My wife and I were about a week away from traveling to Riviera Maya to celebrate our fifth wedding anniversary and belated honeymoon. We wanted to renew our vows and our resort didn't offer any kind of service that was designed for just the two of us. We were delighted to learn of Anna's and Anastasia's availability on such short notice. They offered to coordinate with a florist and photographer, and selected a public beach near our resort to be the site of the ceremony. We supplied the script and suggestions for the flowers, and a few emails and an international flight later, we got the kind of renewal ceremony that dreams are made of: Beautiful site, beautiful flowers, a friendly driver, a patient and creative photographer, and a poised and warm officiant. They all made the experience easy and stress-free. We highly recommend Riviera Maya Officiant to anyone planning a destination wedding or recommitment ceremony!Sent on 09/30/2016
