  • 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 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.

She is extremely detailed, caring and really wants you to have the best possible day. She is willing to go the extra mile to truly make your ceremony feel tailored to you with everything you want with nothing you don't.

  • Leslie was simply amazing to work with. She’s very sincere and passionate about what she does. She makes you feel like your wedding is a top priority and works hard to ensure that you’re comfortable and happy with the service she provides. She made the ceremony personal and seemed genuinely excited to be apart of our big day. She went above and beyond what is expected of an officiant, even down to literally sitting on the floor to help me into my shoes when I was struggling to get them on!! Our guests had nothing but great things to say about her and so do we. Highly recommend Leslie. She was the best!!!

    Hello Kenya and Jerome, I had not asked for a review yet and voila, this arrived in my email today. THANK YOU so much! You are a most wonderful couple ~ I am thrilled that you asked me to officiate your marriage ceremony. The communication has always been great - Every phone call or email was a pleasure to receive and discuss. It was a lot of fun to be an “insider” in the bridal suite ~ thank you for that privilege! Your attendants were so kind to me, a clear reflection of the friends you keep near and dear to you. I loved being with you. I am so grateful that you selected me from all the other JOP’s you could have chosen. It was fun, wasn’t it!!! Thank you again, so much and forever best wishes to both of you. Most sincerely, Leslie

  • Leslie made our ceremony very personable. She is a professional in what she does and just an amazing person. We needed our ceremony to be as soon as possible. Leslie agreed to do it right next day. We also did not think of the place. She provided her lovely apartment and prepared wedding cake for us. Very pleasant lady to work with! Leslie, thank you very much for such a wonderfull and memorable day!

    Dana, thank you for your lovely words - you and your husband are so kind, and it was my pleasure to officiate- The surprise presence of your mother from Europe added to the excitement of your day.

    This is a lovely couple, and I am so glad that they entered a review of me.

Thank you so much Rachel for such nice words. I am very humbled and grateful! Most sincerely, Leslie

  • Leslie officiated our wedding this past weekend and was exactly what we were looking for in an officiant. She was friendly, enthusiastic, sincere and adaptable. We received numerous compliments from our guests about the personalisation in Leslie’s speech and the way she had woven details we’d shared with her into our ceremony. We found Leslie quick and encouraging in her communications with us, but also flexible and understanding with suggestions we made. She welcomed us into her house to discuss our vision for the day and, of her own accord, Leslie travelled to be close to our venue the night before so she wouldn’t be late for our ceremony. This attention to detail and added peace of mind was a further example of Leslie’s conscientious nature.

    Hello J &H, Thank you so much for this lovely review to share with people who are considering me as their Justice. It was a pleasure meeting you and sharing your wedding day with your family and friends. You are a lovely couple and commicating with you for months was exciting and informative. Be well, have a wonderful life!

  • Leslie was an amazing Justice of the Peace that I would highly recommend. Leslie was extremely communicative and very prompt with her responses to any questions we had. The ceremony she was wrote for us was very personal and meaningful and it was very clear that Leslie put in a lot of time and effort to make it so!

    Thank you both for entering this review which means so much to me. It was wonderful to meet you and have the privilege of writing and performing your ceremony on the most beautiful September weekend in Boston. You are so lovely, so kind, and I wish you a lifetime of good health and happiness. Most sincerely, Leslie
