Romantic Wedding Destination in Yucatan Mexico


Mayan Wedding Ceremonies:

JMen call, Maya Wedding    Having a mystical romantic Maya wedding is another choice couples have offered by Hacienda Chichen in Chichen Itza, Yucatan, Mexico.  The Mayan weddings called K'aam Nikte' ceremonies are highly spiritual, filled with beauty and respect to life.  Those couples wishing to have a spiritual Mayan Wedding Ceremony, may do so at the Sacred Maya Ceremonial Site, within the Maya Nature Reserve of Hacienda Chichen, the site was blessed by the Maya J'Men Wiseman who continue to celebrate their ancient rituals and mystical ceremonies with utmost respect and reverence to love, their Gods and Mother Nature.  The Mayan Wedding K'aam Nikte' is filled with ancient symbolism to unite the couple spiritually with the Cosmos and  Mother Nature's life giving energies.

    The sacred energies of love and life are placed upon the couples' love vows to protect their marriage from the negative forces that daily living bring into a home, the couple undergoes a purification ritual, then they are welcomed by the Wise Elder Priests inside the sacred ceremonial altar, where the J'Men welcome the love energy of their Maya Gods: Noj Yuum k’uj (greater God), Yuum K’aax and all yuumtsilo’ob (godly earth elements),  The Aluxes, Yuum Chaak (rain, godly water element) and Junab K’uj, (deities in charge of nature and the elemental energies of life) are then invited to embrace the couples hearts and bring protection to their spirit so that love grows within them as one; then the couple greets each other with a Maya holistic greeting:  In Laakeech (also spell In Lakech).

    The Maya Wedding Ceremonies celebrated at Hacienda Chichen's Sacred Cermonial Site, are truly beautiful, romantic and magical; each ceremony is a highly spiritual love binding ritual recognized by the Mayan Senior J'Men Wiseman and the Maya People as an official true marriage.  Remember each nation has its own legal marriage requirements, in Mexico couples are required to have a Mexican Civil Marriage Certificate register under the national justice system and religious marriage ceremonies or spiritual wedding vows are not recognized as legally binding. Mayan Weddings in Chichen Itza, Yucatan, Mexico are under the spiritual authority of the Mayan Senior Wiseman  (Mayan shaman). For couples to understand the legal marriage requirements in, Yucatan, Mexico, Chichen Service has help us create a detailed list for marriages within Yucatan State, (bellow); do request an updated list from your local Mexican Consulate or Embassy. Other countries accept religious marriage ceremonies such as the Mayan Wedding Ceremony as a legitimate marriage status and will not require a civil court marriage certificate, so check your own nation's marriage laws and legal requirements.


Mexico's Legal Nuptial Requirements:

   Couples wishing to have a civil nuptial certificate, that is binding under Mexican law, should first have the advice and legal guidance of a good Mexican lawyer to explain the various choices offered by law to them.  Below is a list of the basic documents to be presented at the City Hall's Civil Court, such documents require reviewing by the local judge a few days prior to the civil wedding ceremony.  


* Original FM3 immigration forms with copies.
o* Original Birth Certificates and Spanish translated notarized copies of each.
* Both
Passports and notarized copies, plus two clear facial passport photos
* Parents' legal Passport, Birth Certificate, or Death Certificate; plus, copies.
Two legal identifications with photo; passport & driver's licenses are acceptable.
* Four
wedding witnesses, two from your own country and two Mexican citizens.
* Prenuptial
Medical Certificates issued in the Mexican State you wish to marry.

* Prenuptial Interview with Civil Judge ( arranged at the Hacienda Chichen).

  Prior to the wedding ceremony, the judge requires all legal documents  to be presented before him or her in order to discuss your legal marriage contract choices.  Mexican Law allows two types of financial nuptial certificates: Commonwealth Finances known as “Bienes Communes” and Individual Separate Finances known as “Bienes Separados.” Both marriage certificates have different binding laws you need to discuss with Judge; their legal terms will prevail in case of financial issues such as inheriting, wills, credit, bankruptcy, divorce, etc.
