Justice of the Peace: Regina M Pacitti

Regina M Pacitti

Justice of the Peace, Celebrant

I have been a Justice of the Peace for  decades and loved every minute of uniting couples. As a retired English/drama teacher and social worker, I can meet your needs whether for a customized ceremony with rituals and readings or a short and simple but sweet exchange of vows. I have been told I am a very calming influence whether you say “I do” in your studio apartment, a public park, or a grand ballroom. I officiate within the Greater Boston area. As a dog mom to rescue labs, I welcome dogs at ceremonies.

If you are interested in a customized ceremony, I might ask for your courtship history and/or vision before I create your template. You might want to include meaningful readings or rituals. I can use a favorite poem. music lyrics, or passage of your choice or make suggestions from my vast repertoire. Rituals such as the wine box or unity candle or tree planting can make your ceremony unique. You might want to remember family and friends in a memorial passage or thank your families for the wisdom and guidance they have offered you through the years or have your guests stand up and pledge their support of your union! I can add religious touches if that is your wish. The customized ceremony document goes back and forth between us until you are satisfied. I can also facilitate your rehearsal if your venue has no coordinator.

Vow renewals and baby “naming”/”welcoming” are other customized lifecycle events I officiate. A baby naming/welcoming is a secular event in lieu of a christening, but it can still be spiritual if you like. Your child’s  name may be explained. Promises are made regarding the care and guidance of your child as the child is welcomed by all family members. Rituals like sand mingling or rose blessing can also be included.

All inquiries are responded to within 24 hours or less. References available. Contact me for a gratis consultation to see if we are a good fit for each other. Apart from organizing and writing wedding ceremonies, vow renewals, and baby namings, I enjoy theater, most genres of music, travel, bowling, bocce, and all things Italian!

Regina was great in so many ways. She responded promptly to absolutely every email, provided great advice, and is located in Waltham which was perfect for our wedding at the Charles River Museum of Industry. Regina orchestrated our rehearsal the night before and was great with our party. She was so professional and great leading up to and including the actual day of our wedding, we can’t be more grateful. Definitely recommend her!

Regina was a wonderful officiant for our wedding. She was quick to respond, very organized, flexible, and provided us with many resources in helping build our ceremony. She has a template that you can build off, and she was extremely helpful in customizing the ceremony with different readings, ritual suggestions, modern vs. traditional vows, etc. The day of, Regina was very punctual, professional, and she delivered our ceremony perfectly. She’s able to project her voice which is very helpful for outdoor ceremonies as well. Regina genuinely loves what she does, and that comes across in her ceremony template. It was perfect, sweet but not over the top, and defined the reason of marriage and why we were all there. We highly recommend her to anyone looking for a JP!

Regina officiated our September wedding, and she was fantastic both day of and throughout the process. She is genuine, helpful, and invested in making sure that your ceremony goes exactly the way you want it to. She met with us initially to get an idea of what we wanted, was incredibly responsive over the phone and via email during the planning to customize our program to our satisfaction, and prepared us so well for day of- she was there early and had told us well in advance what documents we would need and what her part was in the entire process. She was also the most reasonably priced officiant we spoke with- she does it for the love of the craft, not to scam you into overpaying.

My now husband and I decided to get married in an impulse. We were very happy having Regina as our Justice of the Peace. She explained to us all the requirements and process in detail. Within 2 weeks or so, we went from engaged to married!


Regina was perfect for what my husband and I were looking for in a justice of the peace. She responded quickly to my email request, provided a template for vows, and answered all our questions. Our ceremony only consisted of me and my husband and it was on a short notice, but Regina worked with us on the date.


Last year, my husband and I had the pleasure of having Regina marry us at the Lyman Estate last August. Regina was kind, easy to contact, and was wonderful at our ceremony! My husband and I don’t like being the center if attention and were feeling nervous about the ceremony. Reguna made the whole process easy and stress free. She really was fantastic and we were so happy to have found her and that she agreedto marry us. I would highly reccommend Regina as your Justice of the Peace! Trust me, there is no one better, she is fantastic!!


We found Justice Regina via findaJP. I emailed her via the website and she promptly replied to our request and invited us for a free consultation. Justice Regina explained the process of the marriage license application process and answered our questions patiently. I highly value Justice Regina’s prompt email responses. On the day of the wedding, she arrived ahead of schedule and we chatted while waiting for the scheduled ceremony time. She’s incorporated all the changes on the text we’ve requested. The ceremony proceeded smoothly. We were able to pick up the marriage license two weeks later as she had filled out and processed the paperwork properly. Justice Regina is a reliable, patient, adaptable, and kind person. We are very happy to have found her and highly recommend her services.

Regina was a joy to work with. She is prompt with her communication. She will sit with you and go over the ceremony and will tailor to whatever your needs may be. She was punctual and professional. I wholeheartedly recommend her services.
