  • Hi Future Married Couples, I highly recommend choosing Leslie for your special day. I have been dreaming of my wedding day since I was a little girl and because of covid we had to elope early. My husband and I got married in the Boston Public Garden and planned our elopement in under 2 weeks. I was nervous for the day because I had my dream wedding in mind for so many years, and Leslie truly made the day as special as I had always dreamed. From the start of our communication, Leslie personalized the experience to myself and my husband. She was quick to communicate with and truly showed an investment in our marriage. Leslie was early for our ceremony, she thought of the small details like bringing tissues for our family, and truly made our day the best it could be. She spoke for about 30 minutes and even though we had just met, her speech made it seem like we had known each other for years. It was so sentimental, yet also light-hearted and funny as well. It was so 'us'. I couldn't have ... Read more

    To Jackie, THANK YOU! i was so fortunate that you selected me to be your Justice. Your accessibility and continued correspondence was paramount in me getting to know you and your husband!!! Your family were so welcoming- and no words to describe your kindness and character which is admirable. The tears were tears of joy. You will always be in the forefront of my memory bank. Be well, be safe, celebrations are yet to come and enjoy every day with your wonderful husband! Most sincerely, Leslie

  • We contacted Justice Leslie Zises to officiate our wedding during the COVID-19 pandemic. Like many couples, our original plans were up-ended and we found ourselves making a relatively last-minute decision to get married, and decided to have a celebration down the road. In this situation, we were nervous whether we would be able to find somebody flexible enough to officiate our micro-wedding on a few weeks' notice. We found Leslie through an online search and contacted her after reading her impressive reviews. From the first interactions, it was clear why Leslie is so acclaimed: Leslie was incredibly responsive, flexible, and went above and beyond to make sure that we had an unforgettable day. Leslie made a considerable effort to get to know us such that our ceremony could be tailored around our story as a couple, and written according to our preferences. All of our friends and family following along on Zoom were blown away by how masterfully and eloquently Leslie conducted the cerem... Read more

  • I can't write in words my appreciation for Leslie. I emailed her very last minute and she delivered with a very beautiful written ceremony. She was very kind and loving, it was almost as if she was a family friend. she used the little information I gave her about our love story and captured it in words of love and advice. THANK YOU !! HIGHLY RECOMMEND

    Very often I meet such lovely couples who I have the privilege of being their Justice. TODAY, however, I met one of the most kind, loving and special couples who will remain in the forefront of my mind probably forever! They wrote a lovely review of me above and mentioned “family.” I felt the same way driving home after their ceremony. This couple was a “different special,” a “different kindness,” a different connection” with each other and with me. I wish you every happiness, and continued good health Akira and Jordan...May your every wish come true as you enjoy a wonderful life. Thank you for your lovely words about me. Sincerely, Leslie

  • Leslie was amazing right from the start! Her very first email was so welcoming and she asked a wide variety of questions to personalize our ceremony. She hosted us and prepared a lovely cake for our interview. We pretty much knew from the start she would be our JoP! She was unbelievable kind to our daughter and reassuring to us as a couple. Amist our wedding plan came COVID'19. Leslie continued to reassure us she would make our day special. Leslie performed a BEAUTIFUL ceremony, all while exercising safety precautions. Leslie is flexible, charming and professional. She made us feel so loved and taken-care of. We would highly recommend Leslie.

  • Leslie was absolutely perfect to work with. She was incredible meticulous with her attention to detail and quick responses. Our wedding came a bit rushed, which led to some anxiety as the day approached. But Leslie provided so many details and guidance that we were completely at ease. Moreover she was incredibly responsive even over a holiday weekend and accommodating with her schedule. For the ceremony, she thought of everything including a cake. Her words for the ceremony were thoughtful, kind, and personalized. From the ceremony, it was very clear that she had spent significant time and thought drafting the vows. We could not be happier. Please consider putting Leslie at the top of your list to officiate.

  • Leslie was beyond fantastic. So inspirational, attentive, inspiring, flexible, creative, understanding, and everything one could ask for in a case like ours. We needed a rushed wedding for immigration purposes and did not expect her to be so filled with love and warmth. We loved her speech so much

    Hello Brian and Miriam, Thank you so much for these extremely generous words. It was wonderful meeting you and your beautiful wife, and I wish you a lifetime of happiness. It was a pleasure to be with both of you on a day I shall always remember. Your smiles lifted my day! Be well, be safe, and continue moving forward with love and purpose. Most sincerely, Leslie
