Need Judge Services for simple Vow Renewal Ceremony

We are staying at the Majestic Elegance in Aug 2013 at an upgraded rate to include their "Elegance Club" . They want me to pay an additional 1200.00 for a 10 minute vow renewal ceremony for my husband and self when everything they include in their wedding package will not pertain to us.

Can anyone tell me how to locate a judge in Punta Cana to inquire about my ouw ceremony?? We are already legally married, have no guests, and no special requests, just a 10 minute simple ceremony with only the 2 of us.... any ideas please?

This is very impt on our 25th wedding anniversary as the Dominican is our second home, and I almost lost my husband recently. Please help!!

The answer may well be 'no', but have you thought about just renewing your vows between yourself and your husband, perhaps at sunset, or sunrise, saying to each other what is important to each of your about them etc? It would mean the same, having a stranger there wouldn't really add anything for me, especially as there is no 'legal' stuff involved.

Yes, that is or second plan, but for reasons of my own, I would like it to ceremonial type so that I may even get some pics. Thanks.

Maybe I'm way off base, but how about a boat excursion, and have the Captain do it?

What a fab idea. We too are looking at renewing our vows in 2014. Mark do you have any contacts who may be able to do that? I would certainly be very interested. We will be in a similar position - just the 2 of us as we were for the wedding but don't need the whole wedding package the hotels provide. This sounds the perfect solution - romantic too. Off to Riu Palace Macao in 6 weeks to check out PC as a setting for the vow renewal.

I don't have any contacts for that. It just occurred to me that Captains can do wedding vows, so why not renewing vows?

Mike Fischer, or Veritas, or PCMike could probably give you contacts for that, and when you're there in 6 weeks, you can ask the people at the resort.

If you are interested, you could have a simple vow renewal at the new Catholic Church in the Cortecito Beach area. You can send an email requesting information to Deacon Francisco Tavarez: ing.tavarez32@gmail.com.
