Justice of the Peace
Your "JP" in New Hampshire
I've been a New Hampshire Justice of the Peace since 2008, after more than 10 years in
public relations, where I honed my writing, speaking, and event-planning skills. Since that
time, I've performed more than 400 wedding ceremonies! Being a JP is a natural choice for
me, not only because of my background, but because I have the honor and great
satisfaction of connecting with my couples and helping to create and support the intimate
space between them as they promise to spend the rest of their lives together.
Professionally, I'm a member of the American Association of Wedding Officiants and JPUS
(Justices of the Peace of the US), the nation's largest organization for and about Justices
of the Peace. I'm also proud to be part of AMC (the Appalachian Mountain Club) and
PFLAG (Parents and Friends of Lesbians and Gays).
I love meeting couples of all ages and backgrounds and helping them plan for and
celebrate their weddings; regardless of gender or sexual orientation; and regardless of
whether the wedding will be for two people who have never been married before, or for
those who are confidently beginning again. I'm also happy to officiate affirmations and vow
renewals for already-married couples who wish to celebrate their weddings and
anniversaries with family members and friends!
My husband Richard accompanies me to all ceremonies, and he's always on hand to assist
so that things run smoothly. He normally takes a few pictures, and we'll share a few with
you via email after your wedding, with our compliments. Richard is also a Granite State
Ambassador, and out-of-state couples often find his knowledge of New Hampshire is very
helpful when planning destination weddings for two....or more!
Your ceremony is the heart of your wedding day. I look forward to hearing about your
plans and working with the two of you to create a wedding ceremony that celebrates your
commitment to life's journey, together!
