Can I have a legal ceremony in any venue of my choice in Ecuador?

Yes and no. Non-residents can marry at the town-hall in either Quito, Guayaquil or Cuenca but not at the venue of their choice. Residents and Ecuadorian can have a legal ceremony at other venues. We offer great alternative and original ceremonies with qualified, certified and passionate officiants

Do you plan same-sex weddings, are you open to any religious or non-religious couples?

We value relationships. We do plan and design same-sex weddings and we welcome couples from diverse cultural backgrounds. Truly, everyone is welcome here. Bienvenidos.


"Our heroes" We originally thought that we would be able to plan our wedding in Ecuador site unseen by ourselves. After months of attempting this with difficulty, we were so glad to have found Etica Events to help us. They jumped in and hit the ground running with all of the planning. They were able to take our ideas and turn them into so much more than what we could have ever imagined for ourselves. The beauty that we had during our day was surpassing any expectations that we originally had. The lively colors of the event are going to make for the most beautiful pictures and we owe it all to Etica Events for creating such a picturesque day. Their responsiveness was very fast everytime we had a question or idea. Their suggestions, based on their knowledge of Ecuador, always improved upon our original ideas. We recommend Etica Events to any couple seeking to have an adventurous, magical, and affordable wedding day. We owe so much of our beautiful day to them, thank you!

They were like having family members take care of your whole trip to another country Jose & Assyah gave us the most amazing experience. We had a dream elopement at a beautiful hacienda in the mountains of Ecuador. Our bungalow was huge and out of a magazine. The food and service were fantastic. They took photos from my wife's pinterest and gave her exactly the decorations and flowers she wanted. They were sweet, nice, and personally involved. They were easy to communicate with and warm. They took care of everything and worked with us to give us exactly what we wanted. We will remember it forever. And we would have taken that balloon arch home if we could have. If we make it back to Ecuador, we would love to meet them out for dinner.

Absolutely incredible. Working with Jamila + Juliette (Etica events) exceeded all my expectations. The wedding was beyond beautiful. Every detail was so well done, so thought out, so elegant and luxurious. All my guests commented that it was the best wedding they had been too. The flowers, music, venue, activities that had been set up, and everything else was just absolutely perfect. I wouldn’t have changed a thing.

We just returned from our son's wedding in the cloud forest in Ecuador . Assyah and Jose went above and beyond to plan the most wonderful wedding . They were very easy to work with , answered all our questions promptly and took care of EVERYTHING. The decor was stunning,and everyone who worked at the wedding was incredibly kind, helpful and worked hard to create a magical experience we will never forget . No request was too much (Assyah even helped us when a guest left his suit on the bus and she delivered it back to our hotel ) . Assyah , Jose and the entire team took care of us in a way that made us all feel very special . Amazing !
