  • Jane is the best of the best! She makes sure to get to know her couples as individuals as well as a couple. She encouraged us to write our own vows, but when it proved to be too overwhelming for us, she stepped right in an wrote beautiful reciprocal vows that were perfect for us! She also came up with the most beautiful unity ceremony idea we had ever seen. We are honored to have had Jane officiate our wedding, and more so to now call her a friend!

    Dawn and Brian were married at Stonewall Farm in Keene - surrounded by their children, their parents, their grandparents and their friends. I instantly felt like a member of their blended family. I could feel the love!

  • Jane was awesome to work with! She wrote a very personalized and meaningful ceremony for my husband and I. We had a very small ceremony with immediate family only and everyone loved our ceremony and Jane’s professionalism. We highly recommend Jane as a JP!

    Amelia and Hunter were married at The Waterhouse Restaurant in Peterborough. Their ceremony was lovely and intimate. They are opposites who complement each other in all the right ways.

  • Jane listened to our story and wrote the most beautiful ceremony. Just reading the draft, I cried. She really took the time to understand us and what makes our relationship special. We received so many compliments about how amazing the ceremony was. She has become a treasured friend!

    Charlotte and Donn met when Charlotte was in college and Donn was in the US Navy - fast forward 20 years - they rekindle their friendship that evolves into love - and they get married on Christmas eve 2018. But the story doesn't end here. The night of their wedding, Donn gets a call to travel to PA for a kidney transplant as he has been on the list to get one for 7 years. Blessings abound - their ceremony was an intimate gathering at The Woodbound Inn in Rindge, NH! A lovely day for a lovely couple!

  • Jane married my husband and I this past weekend (10-12-19) and she was amazing. From start to finish she kept in contact, truly got to know us, and wrote an amazing ceremony. We can’t say enough good things about Jane! She is so cheerful and easy to get along with and be around. We can’t thank you enough for everything! Thank you for being a part of our day!

  • My husband was lucky to know Jane prior to our big day but as soon as I met her, I fell in love. She is such a sweetheart and her and her husband are just great people. She made our day stress-free and made our ceremony exactly what we were wanting. We were proud to have her as our officiant and we hope to stay life-long friends with her! You would be absolutely silly not to hire Jane for your wedding!!!

    Waterville Valley was the location for this beautiful couple's nuptials. I love Kathleen and Dom - they feel more like family than friends. I wish them a lifetime of love and happiness.

  • Jane was wonderful to work with! She was so professional, asked all the right questions, and crafted a ceremony that was perfect for us! She also made herself available very last minute- A true life saver. I had guests come up and compliment us on how amazing she was. Don't hesitate- Jane will handle your big day so you're stress free. We loved her!

    Jackie was married at Pat's Peak in Henniker, NH - in a beautiful garden ceremony surrounded by family and friends. I had a few weeks to prepare for this wedding, because their prior officiant fell through, however, I felt like I had known them forever. With great communication we worked great together to create a memorable ceremony!

  • What can I say? Amazing!!! I have known Jane for quite a while now and I have had lots of my friends get married and she has always been their Justice of the Peace and I knew that someday I was going to use her just from all their raving reviews. My wife went to a bridal show on weekend last year and came back to me and said "I found our officiant for our wedding" and I responded "I'm really sorry, but I've had my mind made up on who we are going to have, but maybe she was at the show" Sure enough, she had been talking about Jane and she was in awe with her knowledge and personality. About six months before the wedding, we met with Jane and she interviewed us as a couple and really got to know us. She talked about her different styles of weddings and just had what seemed to be unlimited options. She blew our mind with the thought of a unity tree and had some great sections in the ceremony that blew our audience away. We are still hearing about how awesome of a job she did! Come the wed...

    Ryan and Meryden's wedding was at Alyson's Orchard in Walpole, NH - where I officiate multiple times every year - their ceremony was a waterside ceremony and was filled with emotion, laughter and family. Thank you for trusting me to share your story!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Jane did an amazing job. From the beginning, she had us fill out a survey to get a general idea of what we wanted, then met with us to get more details of who we are as a couple and how our ceremony would go. We wanted to do as little of the speaking as possible, and she really listened to our wishes and wrote the best ceremony on the first draft. My hubby and I read it and tried not to cry ☺️ At the rehearsal and wedding day, she helped get everyone set for their role in the ceremony, even when a few folks weren’t there until the day of. Her presence is calming and assuring. She also incorporates beautiful, personal elements like our handfasting which guests absolutely loved. The comment we got from many guests was “the ceremony was beautiful, and so...YOU.” That’s the perfect way to describe Jane’s work. Thank you!!!

    Shay and Thomas were married in Shay's family's backyard and they enjoyed a heartfelt hand fasting ceremony that embodied their statements of love - it was simply breathtaking - they are both on the shy side so a hand fasting was a great way to enjoy their vows and share a Celtic tradition!

  • 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!

  • I can’t say enough good things about Jane! She is truly one of the best wedding officiants around! I have been a guest at least 2 weddings, and she performed my wedding ceremony last month (June 2018).
She made the process so easy, and was flexible with our requests and wants for the ceremony. The most amazing part was how well she understood our relationship from the one meeting we had with her and was able to write it so eloquently in our ceremony. She picked up little intricacies and really highlighted what made us “us”, which made for a really personal and powerful ceremony. Jane, I can’t thank you enough for being part of our perfect day and making the ceremony so perfect

  • Our wedding experience with Jane was nothing short of extraordinary- beginning to happily ever after. In the moments before your big day, she has you both sit and think about what this whole marriage thing is about- she has you ponder the words of love, trust, family, and togetherness. And then when you’re completely consumed with emotion on your wedding day Jane brings you such a sense of peace. She has qualities that are absolutely delightful to have when you are planning for and on your big day. Regardless of how many times I told myself, you’re keeping it low key, no need to stress, blah blah blah... I stressed! And then my stress got stressed. Jane has this amazing way of just making you feel calm, no matter what may not be going exactly as planned. It was an absolute honor to have her officiate our wedding. Thoughtful words she left us with after she declared us forever partners, “it can keep getting better and you can keep getting closer”. You my dear friend, Jane, are ... Read more

  • 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!!

    responded with the following comments.

    Alyson's Orchard was a perfect venue for this amazing couple. Reyna's family wanted to include elements that were part of their family's culture. We did a lasso ceremony and the groom gave the bride 13 gold coins, which is also a Mexican tradition in a wedding. I continue to walk away from every ceremony I am honored to officiate with the knowledge that every couple's story is different - always tremendous cause for celebration.

  • Jane is absolutely WONDERFUL! The ceremony that she officiated for my daughters wedding was one I will treasure she made the ceremony so special and the words she spoke were beautiful and heartwarming. Her guidance and ideas such as the unity painting made the ceremony memorable for all. If I could give 10 STARS I would!!!!

    Jennifer's daughter and son-in-law shared a winter wedding that also included a baptism of the bride in the ceremony - every piece was lovely and now the happy couple are active military living in Arkansas.

  • Jane did a lovely job as our JP. She was able to incorporate our Thai elements in our wedding ceremony along with other traditional elements. The ceremony was really special and all of our family and friends appreciated it’s uniquenesss. She was timely to both the rehearsal and the ceremony and did a great job directing and orienting all members in the wedding party. She’s a wonderful person and friend!

    Celebrating Maneeya's Thai roots was wonderful. I continue to learn as an Officiant - always willing to try new elements and find ways to personalize every ceremony - Hidden Hills in Rindge, NH was the perfect setting for Maneeya and Isaac's wedding!
