#WedwithCourtly: JR and Sil

JR and Sil getting married remotely through Courtly

Meet JR and Sil, a loving couple who tied the knot through Courtly. JR and Sil are not originally from the US and they have been dreaming of immigrating to the US for a long time. After careful consideration and planning, they realized that getting married through Courtly would be the perfect way to obtain a legal US marriage certificate. With Courtly, they had the intimate and low-fuss wedding they desire, while also fulfilling an important requirement for their immigration process.

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

I first heard about Courtly while doing countless research on how to obtain a legal US marriage certificate. I was on a Reddit thread discussing the topic and someone mentioned Courtly as an option. I started reaching out to the Courtly team, and I was impressed by how easy it was to talk to them. They didn't give me any canned replies and the process was straightforward. I was also impressed by the level of customer service they provided and how they were able to answer all my questions. We were in the process of immigrating to the US and we needed a legal US marriage certificate, so there were no questions about why we went with Courtly. It made the whole process much easier for us and we are grateful for that.

How important was it for you to obtain a legal US marriage certificate for your immigration process?

Obtaining a legal US marriage certificate was extremely important for our immigration process. It's a requirement for our application, and we needed it to prove that our relationship is genuine. Having a legal US marriage certificate will increase the chances of our success. We were very glad to find Courtly, which made it easy for us to get a legal US marriage certificate even when we’re not physically in the US yet.

Can you describe the process of obtaining a legal US marriage certificate through Courtly? How did it compare to traditional wedding processes?

It was an incredibly seamless process. All we had to do was fill out the form and submit our IDs, and Courtly took care of the rest. It was much simpler than the traditional wedding process, where you have to go through a lot of legwork, submit the paperwork yourself, and schedule appointments.

The day after our wedding ceremony, we received our digital marriage certificate and two weeks later, the physical copy arrived in the mail. It couldn't have been more seamless. Courtly handled all the legal requirements and made sure that everything was done in a timely manner. We didn't have to worry about a single thing and were able to focus on enjoying our special day.

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

It was exactly as we had envisioned, it was quick, fun, and intimate. The ceremony was held in the comfort of our own home and was conducted over Zoom. The officiant that Courtly provided was warm and made the ceremony very special. She made sure that we felt comfortable throughout the process and made it a very memorable experience for us. One of the best things about Courtly is that they even provided the witnesses as an add-on service. It was a great relief that we didn't have to worry about finding witnesses, Courtly took care of everything. It was the perfect day, and we couldn't have asked for anything more. 

How has Courtly helped you in your immigration process? Would you recommend Courtly to other couples who are in a similar situation?

Courtly has been incredibly helpful in our immigration process. Without their service, we would have had to spend a lot of money flying to the US for a short trip just to get married, which would have been a huge expense. Courtly made it possible for us to get a legal US marriage certificate without having to be in the US, which was a huge relief. We were able to have a beautiful, intimate, and low-fuss wedding while also fulfilling an important requirement for our immigration process.

We would definitely recommend Courtly to other couples who are in a similar situation. The platform is a great option for couples who want to have a legal US marriage certificate. Courtly helped us in so many ways, and we are grateful for that.
