Serving most of the northeast, the professional membership group expanded its territory to include Vermont wedding officiants. In its first welcoming gesture, marriage officiants are invited to an Open House in White River Junction on Friday, September 13th between 3:00-6:00.
“I’m looking forward to meeting the amazing JPs who bring couples together in love and marriage,” says Loretta Jay, who leads the organization. “Our goal is to support JPs with their business of officiating weddings. “We pride ourselves on boutique-like services, so being able to chat in-person and get to know each individual is helpful.” Food and beverages will be available at the free event.
