  1. Noel was an amazing officiate with the kindest and friendliest attitude. Our beautiful ceremony was quite a hike through the forest of Costa Rica to the base of a waterfall. He was so accommodating and helpful the entire time, he even helped me over the rocks! This was very difficult in my wedding dress! His vows were beautiful and truly meant so much to my new husband and me. Our marriage is already registered with our English/Spanish certificate on its way soon. We couldn’t have asked for a better officiate.

  2. Juan and I sincerely appreciate the lovely wedding ceremony that you performed for us at Pacuare Lodge on December 14, 2016. It was an incredibly special day for us and you made it entirely possible to have our ceremony in Costa Rica with very little effort of our part. Thank you for making the journey to the middle of the rainforest so that we could experience the wedding of a lifetime! Muchas gracias!!

  3. “When you are planning your wedding ceremony, you want everything executed perfectly and that means picking the right person for the job. That’s no small task at home, but planning a destination wedding makes it even more challenging. How can you be sure you are selecting the right wedding officiant when you are unable to meet in them in person? Allow us to remove that worry from your list. From our first email, Noel Ibo was the perfect choice. All of his communications were prompt, he took the time to ensure we understood the process, and he kept us up to date on each stage until the marriage license was in our hands. And the ceremony? Perfect. He is very personable and it was clear that he enjoyed officiating our marriage. He talked to us rather than recite a speech. We could not have been more pleased with his service. Thank you, Noel Ibo.” Kind regards, Mauro & Shelli

  4. What better gift from God than to start the first day of 2012 with the completion of our wedding at the Double Tree Puntarenas, Costa Rica; a family favorite location and a perfect way to enjoy the vacation. Thanks to the staff of the Hotel and Noel Ibo for your availability to perform our wedding. Noel Ibo thank you for your participation in this highly anticipated family event. Your words and dedications during the ceremony were uplifting. It was the perfect touch for a beautiful wedding ceremony.

  7. “You will be making a great decision if you choose to use Noel as your destination wedding officiant in Costa Rica. Noel was great at keeping in touch through email pre-wedding, at our request he sent us the ceremony script for review, he showed up right on time on the wedding day, he allowed our input on what he would wear to the ceremony & the ceremony itself was wonderful. Noel is the definition of professional yet personal. He kept the energy rolling throughout the entire ceremony & added a few fun Costa Rican touches to the ceremony as well–like “Hombre, do you take this woman?”

  8. What are the key ingredients to a special and memorable wedding? To us it was a combination of setting and performance. We had chosen a river bed in la Fortuna, Costa Rica, and the performer of the wedding was Noel Ibo Campos. That turned out to be an excellent combination! April 12, 2010 was truly an extraordinary day for us. We had been travelling thousands of miles from Denmark to Costa Rica. Our original plan was to get married in the local city hall of Odense, whose most famous resident used to be fairytale writer Hans Christian Andersen, and then go to Costa Rica for our honeymoon. However, as time for our big day drew closer, we did not think that there was much fairytale about saying “I do” at a cold and colourless city hall. So we changed our plans and made Costa Rica the goal of our wedding. With the help of our hotel at la Fortuna we got in touch with Noel Ibo by mail. Sympathy and understanding were there immediately and an appointment was arranged. Noel agreed to come and perform our wedding in the river – literally speaking!
    “You don´t believe in God, do you?” The rhetorical question was surprising and a bit provoking at the same time. But by asking that question Noel Ibo showed us that he is a fantastic performer who knows how to “read” his couples. His speech to us was entertaining, and it was a very distinct and fine blend of rituals, spirituality, seriousness and fun. Just the way we wanted it. Mucho gustamos. Gracias, Noel Ibo.

  9. “Noel, We just wanted to thank you for the very intimate and beautiful ceremony that you performed for us earlier today. You and your brother made the entire ceremony special and really took your time. We really can not thank you both enough for creating a wonderful memory for us. I’d also like to say that although my expectations were VERY HIGH, you COMPLETELY EXCEEDED each and every expectation that we had. Noel, you officiated the ceremony with so much passion that we felt like you had known us throughout our entire relationship. Many blessings to you, your family, and all that you do. You are wonderful indeed.”

  11. “Cori and I were married on the beach in Costa Rica! To be married on the beach in Costa Rica alone is and was the most beautiful experience Cori and I could have hoped for. The setting is what story books are made of. Noel delivers a ceremony that any couple can only pray for. Noel has a true passion in his ceremony that enhances the power of the ocean and the pure beauty of Costa Rica. My family who witnessed the ceremony still comment on the beauty and passion of Noels presence and delivery. Noel will give a wedding to remember! Forever! Pura Vida!!”

  13. “Noel was a wonderful addition to our wedding ceremony. The vows he provided were beautiful and truly captured the essence of marriage. Although our ceremony was a non religious the vows and Noel’s presentation created a spiritual setting of love, joy, and togetherness. As an American getting married in Costa Rica I had many questions about the legal procedures of marriage in Costa Rica; Noel was always prompt and thorough at answering my questions and made me feel completely at ease with getting married in a foreign country. After the wedding, Noel was punctual at processing our marriage paperwork and providing us with our marriage certificate.”

  16. “Noel Ibo Campos did a fine job at our beautiful wedding in January 2008 in Villa Caletas (Jaco Beach), Costa Rica. Noel arrived on time, was prepared, did a seamless job in officiating the legal portion of the ceremony and sent our documents to us in the United States when it was ready. In addition, he gladly assisted us a few months later with paperwork that was overlooked during our wedding. Based on our great experience, we recommend Noel Ibo Campos for your legal needs in Costa Rica.”
