Deborah O Stiewing

Newtown, CT

Justice of the Peace

I’d love to perform your wedding ceremony!  Contact me to discuss a variety of verses that I’ve prepared however I encourage individual input to create a special celebration for a more memorable wedding.  I have lovely ceremonies for newlyweds, those who wish to renew their wedding vows, re-marry & same gender ceremonies.  You will receive the same consideration to your consultation & wedding whether you’re having a private ceremony, eloping or a guest list of two…to two-hundred!

During our phone or personal consultation, we will discuss the type of ceremony you desire, the personal writing of your service, editing and preparing your vows, interfaith marriage ceremonies, the uniting of children into one family, the addition of a baby and a religious blessing if requested.

We will decide the placement of your wedding party, the processional, recessional and the escorting and seating of parents and grandparents. I will give you the correct order of events for your program & wording for dedications.

I will perform your wedding at your venue, your home, park or a small intimate wedding at my house inside or out. The arch in the banner image above is in my backyard.

I will address any concerns that you have and will offer you a variety of pleasant and reliable solutions. At the end of your consultation you will leave with ease and confidence that your wedding will be perfect.

Deborah Stiewing not only officiated at my wedding, but she officiated at my daughter’s wedding in Mexico and my other daughter’s wedding in Colorado.

Deb is a consummate professional who goes above and beyond to get to know you and your spouse, and your preferences, in order to create a most personal ceremony that lives on in your heart and mind forever. She is articulate, reliable and detailed, and she takes control to ensure everyone involved in the ceremony knows exactly what to do and when. Deb understands the legalities around what is needed to perform a wedding in state or out of state, or out of the Country for that matter. She cares deeply about her work and her clients. I guarantee you won’t find a more dedicated JP than Deborah Stiewing.

We are forever grateful for the whole-heartedness with which Debbie Stiewing approaches her role as a Justice of the Peace. Her commitment to detail, as well as her incredible thoughtfulness, warmth, wisdom, and sense of humor created a wonderful structure for our wedding ceremony. The process felt like a co-creation with a wonderfully gifted listener and guide.

My wife and I had the great good fortune of becoming neighbors with Deborah Stiewing. When we met and told her we were going to get married but were not interested in doing something in church she told us she was a JP. We were so excited because that was just what we wanted, and we like her personality immediately. She worked with us both to set up a beautiful, personal ceremony and walked us through it step by step. Even to the point of wiping our tears of excitement, joy and love. Deborah is an extraordinary person and a wonderful JP. We have recommended her to friends, and they couldn’t have been happier. She’s a gem!

It is my pleasure to write this testamonial for Deborah Stiewing, Justice of the Peace. As my husband and I approach our 19th anniversary, we reflect on the wonderful night of our wedding. We remember the pre-nuptial meeting when Deb Stiewing worked with us to insure that we would be comfortable with procedure and at the same time have the ceremony of our choice. Then at a gathering of our family and friends, Deb officiated as Justice of the Peace. Her professionality, insightful words, and her warm personality truly made this our most important and special moment. We are forever grateful to her.

My husband and I got married August 24, 2014. We had a perfect summer sunny day and we also had the most extraordinary Justice of the Peace. Deborah Stiewing officiated our wedding and it was nothing short of perfection. She made us feel so comfortable on a day where your nerves are wild. Deb was very through made sure our vows were unique and just what we wanted. She speaks from the heart and means everything she says. She even helped us pick meaningful music. I cannot say enough about Deb. She will go out of her way to make your wedding a dream come true and a happy ever after.

Deborah Stiewing served as a JP for my wedding in California on July 27, 2019. She made the wedding planning process easy by guiding me through the legal procedures, the ceremony planning, guiding us to think about rings, vows and the overall flow of the wedding. She performed the ceremony with grace, humor and with knowledge supported by her years of JP training and the 1400 weddings she has performed. Thank you form the bottom of my heart.
