Justice of the Peace

No two love stories are the same – no two ceremonies should be either! I would love to work with you to create a custom, personalized ceremony that leaves your guests remarking that it was so very…YOU.

I love…love. And weddings! That love paired with a writing background makes crafting your ideal ceremony my specialty. I’d be honored to work with you from initial consultation through your wedding day to ensure your ceremony is as unique, special, and memorable as can be.

Not sure where to begin? Get in touch for an intial conversation so we can explore how I can make your wedding ceremony the absolute perfect fit for your day.

My fee includes an in-person meeting to get to know you as a couple, a custom ceremony script, communication with your vendors as needed and, of course, your ceremony. I am available for your rehearsal for an extra fee; a travel fee applies to weddings outside of Fairfield County.

I can’t wait to meet you!

My husband and I postponed due to Covid 3 times. Throughout our first date (2019) I interviewed many wedding officiants. At the time, I was not entirely sure what specifically I was seeking, but I did know that I wanted for our ceremony to be meaningful and I really needed someone who would take the reins and point us in the right direction, as I really had no idea what I was doing or time with my busy work schedule to figure it out. Back in 2019 I ultimately ended up initially choosing someone that I knew to officiate our wedding. When we postponed the first time, we decided that for various reasons it did not feel right anymore, so we decided to change our mind and try again. After still not having anyone to officiate our wedding after we postponed for the second time, it was getting down to the wire. We never lost sight of wanting to feel that our ceremony would be meaningful! As soon as I found out that Lisa could be our officiant, everything felt as though it immediately fell into place. Finally, this part of the planning could not only be checked off but it felt SO RIGHT! Right from the very moment Lisa agreed to be our wedding officiant, we knew we made the right choice! Lisa was nothing short of a true professional, incredibly helpful, and took away all of the stress and anxiety of everything. Lisa made the whole process as painless and easy as possible and took the time to get to know us and what is important to us. She completely personalized the ceremony to us, and went absolutely above and beyond. Our expectations were exceeded. We truly could not have pictured a more meaningful ceremony and it was everything we wanted and much more! My husband and I have different religious backgrounds, and Lisa integrated elements of both flawlessly into our ceremony. While offering suggestions when appropriate, she always remained objective and impartial and never attempted to influence any of our decisions. Lisa encouraged us to create the ceremony of our dreams which involved a tree watering ceremony, taking a shot of alcohol out of custom shot glasses which my husband and I wanted to do, and wrote the most beautiful words making everything we wanted completely relevant to the story about us that she told. She delivered everything completely flawlessly. After the ceremony, and after the wedding, we received so many compliments on how amazing our ceremony was! I even had a friend of mine who is getting married soon ask if she was available to officiate her wedding. We would not for one second hesitate to recommend Lisa to anyone to officiate their wedding, as not only were we so happy with the outcome, but the ceremony truly ended up being our favorite part of the entire wedding. Thank you, Lisa!!!
