Top Justice of the Peace in Connecticut

Personalized Ceremony

I want your wedding to reflect your unique vision. Bringing years of experience as a Justice of the Peace to your wedding or vow renewal, we will work together to create an unforgettable dedication of love. 

All beliefs and faiths welcomed.



I am the Top Justice of the Peace in Connecticut. Performing quite a few weddings in New York, I am also registered at the NYC marriage Bureau. As a non-denominational minister, I am allowed to perform marriages in other states.

As much as I would like to think it is because of my melodious voice, my popularity is probably due more to a “quick to respond” personality and referrals from past couples. I am available 24/7 and am quick to answer the phone and respond to emails.


my background

Graduated from Columbia with an MBA in Marketing, I am a retired marketing professional.

  • Ally & Gargano Advertising – VP Acct Director

  • MasterCard – VP Global Promotions & Sponsorship

  • Guinness Beer – US Marketing Manager

  • Nestle – Product Manager (New Products)

  • American Home Foods – Product Manager

  • Ogilvy & Mather Advertising – Account Executive

I have traveled a lot for work and pleasure. I particularly love Italy, France, England and Hawaii. I am drawn to beaches and love weddings by the water.


Wonderful officiant! We were married by Mary on the coldest day of the year 1/6/18! She was such a delight to work with; very through and she made the process and day so easy! I had no worries with Mary there. She did a wonderful job with our ceremony, including a hand ceremony and blessing of the rings. She made everything go smoothly. She even took so many pictures afterwards and a video of the ceremony. We didn’t get a videographer, and when we got the video of our ceremony I was SO happy she recorded it! I would highly recommend Mary - definitely lives up to the name Ct’s TOP JP! :)
