Justice of the Peace: Jane E Rokes

Jane E Rokes

Justice of the Peace

If I have learned anything from my 20 years of officiating, it is that adaptability and creativity is critical to surviving in this ever changing world.  That same mindfulness is what marriage is all about it seems – a counterbalance of everything necessary to enjoy a marriage that is happy and enduring!  Writing about this necessary counterbalance is what I do – telling a couple’s story in a way that evokes happiness and gratitude.

Since 2004, I have been a busy wedding officiant, marrying over 1000 couples. Small, intimate ceremonies or large gatherings at popular wedding venues, even on a mountainside – I do them all, including vow renewals!

One of the greatest honors I have had in my tenure as a JP is to offiicate for the siblings, cousins, or friends whose weddings I performed earlier.  It is a privilege that I have been afforded time and time again. I am honored when a couple who attends a wedding I have offiicated as guests  then asks me to officiate for their wedding.

I work hard to ensure that every ceremony is unique and no element is replicated.  I use a questionnaire to tailor each ceremony to the couples I work with. If a couple prefers that we sit together to discuss their ceremony, then we enjoy a face to face meeting and the same result is achieved. “Every ceremony comes off with a hitch.”

Married for over 39 years, for me, marriage is simply the greatest milestone a couple can celebrate!  I have been the happy recipient of many wedding industry awards including Readers Choice Awards in Cheshire County for four years now. I look forward to serving as your Officiant!

Jane was the absolute best! She performed our wedding ceremony on 7/7/18, and we could not have asked for anyone better! My husband and I eloped back in August, so when we were planning the formal wedding, we knew we needed someone to make it special! Jane was amazing to work with! She is very flexible and accommodating. Our wedding was out of state and some of the bridal party was meeting for the first time at the rehearsal! She made me feel at ease and that things were going to be okay! Which they were! She put together an amazing ceremony and made our day even better!

Jane was absolutely amazing! I’ve heard nothing but good reviews about her and they were all right. Our family and friends loved her ceremony and so did my husband and I. She makes it so personal and memorable it’s more than just saying “I Do”. She works with you and really listens to what you want and is easy to get ahold of. We recommend her all the way!!

Thank you Reyna A Leyva-Szuch – what an honor to be part of your day – sharing your love story with your audience! It was especially moving partaking in traditions that are near and dear to your family – most especially the lasso/rosary piece – I got a little teary listening to your mom talk about the premise! Go love!

Jane was amazing for our big day! She really took the time to get to know me and my husband and even our families. For the ceremony, it was so beautiful and special. Everyone was involved and the ceremony really encompassed who we are as a couple, with our families, and us as individuals. Thank you so much!


Jane is the best of the best. We met her at a wedding show at our vendor, and my husband demanded on the way home that we MUST hire her, and so we did. What a great decision!! Jane met with us to talk, and also supplies a questionnaire where she can get to know the couple on a deeper level. She then creates a really personalized ceremony unique to the couple. She proposed a few wonderful unity piece ideas, and we were able to incorporate our lost loved ones (without it being too sad) in ours and ALSO our guestbook. She is personable and approachable and a STEAL if you can book her for your wedding. Thank you Jane for helping us in the most important and memorable part of the whole day!


Jane was wonderful to work with. We were not 100% sure which elements we wanted in our ceremony and she took us through options until we knew what was right for us. She wrote a beautiful ceremony that many guests complimented. Her delivery during the ceremony is beautiful. Working with Jane, it’s obvious she loves what she does. We couldn’t imagine a better officiant for our wedding day. Thank you Jane!!


I have known Jane since I was a freshman in high school. I knew that I wanted Jane to craft our wedding ceremony the moment Aaron proposed. I have also been able to see weddings that she has done in the past, solidifying my confidence! She is very professional and very thorough and makes sure all the details are ready for the big day. Jane did a fabulous job and wrote the ceremony from her heart as well as our hearts after meeting Aaron and I as a couple. I received several compliments after the wedding about Jane’s ceremony and ability to “work a room.” Jane was wonderful, and I am so blessed to have had her part of my life as both a friend and part of our next chapter as husband and wife! Thank you, Jane!
