Catholic Ceremony: performed by a Priest. It is the bride and groom who perform the Sacrament of Matrimony (marriage), but a marriage can only be valid if the Church. You both and your witnesses need to be prepared with the classes and sacraments and should follow up in advance; after you are ready, your Priest need to send the validation to Baja California Sur confirming all the procedures where done appropriated. After that, our Priest will have the right to marry you.
Legal Ceremony: performed by a Judge. For this one there are more expenses involve and paperwork requirements. You will need birth certificate, four witnesses, blood tests and tourist permit. The ceremony will be performed in Spanish; your Wedding Designer will help you to have a translator so your guests understand the reading. After you are married, the Marriage Certificate will become in Spanish. So in order to make it legal at your home, you need to check in your Court House the required documentation for it, that includes a Notarized Translation of your Certificate. This is the reason that most of the couples decide to do the Legal part at home and avoid all these process and expenses.
Jewish Ceremony: performed by a Rabbi. For this one couple will often bring their own from home. This ceremony is not allowed to be on Saturday.
