The Wedding of Oscar & Megan

Last Updated on June 13, 2022 by Retire in Panama

Oscar Megan Ceromony It was an honor and privilege for me to officiate the ceremony of Oscar & Megan’s wedding two weeks ago. It was a truly magical affair. From the moment the two lovebirds entered the room, it was clear that this was a match made in heaven. The wedding guests, from Boquete and all over Panama, and Megan’s family and friends from the United States, and Oscar’s from Colombia, and Costa Rica gathered for an event that was an extravagant celebration fit for royalty.

Please, leave your congratulations in the comment section at the bottom of the page.

When Oscar and Megan asked me to officiate their wedding and be the best man (of course), it just felt right. Oscar and I have been best friends and business partners for almost 10 years, and Megan has become like a sister to me. The three of us have become a team. I was thrilled to be a part of their big day and help them start this new chapter in their lives together.

Megan gets all the credit for this spectacular production, which many attendees  commented as the best wedding ever held in Boquete. Since Oscar and Megan are expats in this country, half of their guest lists came from outside of Panama.

With Megan coordinating all the travel, airport pickups, venues, live music, catering, and guests list, Oscar and I really had nothing to do. ItOscar Megans Wedding was like she was coordinating a Relocation Tour for 100 people :) Best Director of Operations ever!!! So we just planned the best bachelor party ever for Oscar to keep him busy :)

The wedding event was held at the Haven Wellness Resort & Spa in Boquete, and they did a fantastic job with the venue. Marie Fuentes, from Floristeria Eventos Boquete, was the wedding planner and did a fantastic job. The catering was provided by Boquete’s own, Davide Care of Retrogusto, and we cannot say enough about the great food.

There were terrific performances by professional violinist Efrain Rada and band from Colombia and a personal song performance by Israel Guerra of Boquete’s #Hashtag Band. The rest of the evening was dancing into the night with a great DJ. Megan also organized a cultural dance ensemble to perform a local Panamanian dance.

All I can say is that this was the best wedding I have ever attended. And I am pretty sure that Oscar & Megan will look back at this day and say the same.

When I look at this couple, I see my friends and my business partners, and the relationship we have, shines through, whenever we do one of our relocation tours.
