Top Justice of the Peace in Connecticut
I bring years of experience as a Justice of the Peace to your wedding, marriage vow renewal, or same-sex marriage. I provide traditional, civil, contemporary, non-religious, religious, and uniquely you ceremonies.
I am available to book your rehearsal date or wedding whether it is next year or today.
Working together, we will create an unforgettable dedication of love whether it is large and elaborate or a simple celebration.
If you are a CT resident or want to marry in CT (no residency required!), ask me for my planning site. It has ceremony suggestions, checklists, timelines, a large collection of vows, and budget/planning tips.
Personalized Vows and Marriage Services
I will help you personalize your marriage vows and ceremony service to reflect your spiritual, intimate, and heartfelt feelings. All beliefs and faiths welcomed. Your service is customized to YOUR needs. If you would like to explore more ideas, I provide many ceremonies to chose from. There are no extra charges for special ceremonies. You bring the set-up and you can have unity candles, rose ceremonies, sand ceremony, glass breaking, etc.
I am happy to meet with you and attend any rehearsals.
Multi-Language Wedding Ceremonies
I speak conversational Spanish and I am learning French. I can perform your ceremony in either English, Spanish or French. If you like, we can have your marriage in any two languages. You are welcome to have a family member read the ceremony in the 2nd language.
Wedding and Vow Renewal Help
As top Justice of the Peace, expect premium service for all my couples. I want to make your day as special as I possibly can. I happily answer questions you have, including procedures, suggestions to save money, how to get your license, etc. Prior to your wedding I send free planning information. Get ideas, ceremony options, sample vows, and more.
I am willing to work within your budget, call me to discuss.
When you and your fiance dream about your wedding, same-sex marriage or vow renewal, what do you envision? Is it a seaside ceremony, a setting under a gazebo, a colorful garden background, familial home, or an elegant resort? Ask for my informational packet with special wedding locations. Couples are thrilled to see all the options I have discovered for them.
Pictures for All and for Deluxe a DVD, too
I prepare and give my couples a customized laser cut portfolio with their personalized vows and marriage certificate. It is printed in a lovely font on elegant blue parchment paper. I take digital snapshot photos that I will send you electronically. For the deluxe wedding service, I add a personalized photo DVD with your vows, certificate and readings. I add a slideshow to the DVD,too.
On Your Wedding Day
I arrive early to talk to the other professionals (photographer, dj). I wear robes with a satin stole, a suit or whatever is appropriate. I have several colors of robes. Options are black, white, creme, chocolate, gold, silver, red and purple robes. I have many colors of stoles- without religious symbols, too.
If you don’t have music, I bring an ipod. It plays traditional wedding music, as background or for the Bridal March. I bring bubbles! To make you both smile. Blowing bubbles eases a lot of the nervousness of a ceremony and makes it fun!!
Celebrities, you can trust that my discretion is assured.
Call or e-mail me to book your ceremony and rehearsal date, whether it is for next year or today.
