Meet Sunny and Louis. They have always dreamt of having a destination wedding in Italy, where they first met. After much consideration and planning, they decided to tie the knot with Courtly in Italy. They wanted to skip the hassle of figuring out the paperwork of getting married in a foreign country, and Courtly provided the solution they needed. With Courtly, they had the destination wedding of their dreams, while also being able to include their loved ones from afar.

Can you tell us a little bit about how you first heard about Courtly and why you decided to use our platform?

I first heard about Courtly online while my husband, Louis, and I were researching the process of getting married abroad. The process of filing for a wedding in Italy was confusing and stressful, and we were looking for an easier way to do it. When we found out about Courtly and how it allowed us to get legally married with a US marriage certificate even from Italy, it felt like an answered prayer. The idea of having our dream destination wedding in Italy, where we first met, without having to worry about the legalities, was very appealing to us.

Can you describe the planning process for your wedding using Courtly? Was it easy and stress-free?

From the application process to the ceremony itself, the whole process was smooth and seamless. Courtly took care of all the legal requirements and made sure that everything was done in a timely manner. We were also impressed by the customer service provided by Courtly. The team was always there to answer any questions we had and guide us through the process. They were very responsive and helpful, which made the whole experience much more pleasant.

How did you find the process of planning a destination wedding in a foreign country? How has Courtly helped you with the paperwork?

Initially, it felt overwhelming. We didn't know where to start and figuring out all the legalities all by ourselves felt like an impossible task. We were so focused on the preparations of the wedding that the thought of dealing with paperwork and legalities was daunting. That was until we found Courtly.

Courtly made the process of planning a destination wedding in Italy so much easier. They handled all the legal requirements and paperwork. Without Courtly, we would have been so lost. They were a lifesaver for us and we are grateful to have found this platform.

Can you tell us about your wedding day? Was it what you had envisioned and was it special to you?

It was even more special than we could have imagined. Our dream wedding was made possible with Courtly, and we couldn't be happier. The ceremony was held in the beautiful location of our choosing, surrounded by the stunning Italian countryside.

One of the best things about Courtly was that we were able to include our loved ones from all over the world via Zoom. They were able to join us on this momentous occasion, even though they weren't able to be there physically. It made the whole experience even more special and memorable. We're grateful that Courtly made it all happen. It was the perfect day, and we couldn't have asked for anything more.

Would you recommend Courtly to other couples who are planning a destination wedding in a foreign country? Why or why not?

I would definitely recommend Courtly to other couples who are planning a destination wedding in a foreign country. Courtly made the process of planning our wedding in Italy so much easier and stress-free. They handled all the legal requirements and paperwork, which allowed us to focus on enjoying our special day.  We couldn't have done it without them, and we highly recommend them to other couples.

Let us handle the paperwork.

Getting married is complicated. Courtly simplifies the process and provides everything necessary to get married online, including providing a licensed officiant who can perform a remote ceremony.
