  • We could not have been happier with our wedding ceremony, and Leslie's company. Her responsiveness was swifter and kinder than could possibly have been expected, her manner and conduct was dignified, personalized, professional, intelligent, warm and courteous to a fault. We are extremely happy to have found and met Leslie, and to have been married by her, and we absolutely recommend her services to all. Her kindness knows no bounds, and we now consider her part of our extended family.

  • Leslie was an amazing officiant, and I am so happy that we had her conducting our ceremony. She prepared a beautiful and thoughtful ceremony for us that I could not have been happier with. Our initial meeting with her was wonderful, and she took the time to get to know us in a way that made the ceremony very personalized to us and our relationship. She was very prompt replying to any questions I had; she was willing (and enthusiastic) to incorporate any special reading I requested into the service. She went above and beyond my expectations, and I could tell that she was personally committed to our having the most special day possible. I can NOT recommend Leslie enough. I am so grateful for all that she did for us, for making that day the happiest I've had. Thank you, Leslie.

    Trinity, Justice's would stand in line to meet you and your husband and to have the opportunity and privilege to officiate at your wedding. The three of us just "clicked" when we met, and I knew it was going to be a wonderful day for you, your husband and relatives. You were the most elegant bride to grace the area, and all of us rejoiced in your happiness. Thank you for your very kind words about me. Our communication made it easy to create the ceremony you received. It was a supreme pleasure to meet you and work with and for you. Thank you for your trust in me. All the best, Leslie

  • Leslie was able to officiate our wedding on short notice, and was very sweet and accommodating. We wrote our own ceremony, she added a few personal touches, and it was absolutely perfect. She was also very helpful in navigating how to obtain our license and waive the waiting period. Overall, an excellent experience. Thank you, Leslie!

    Hello Angela, We had a good time when you and "M" came to Boston. YOUR written vows were beautiful. I can't believe how many friends flew here to celebrate your wedding.

Keep celebrating. All the best, Leslie

  • Leslie was fabulous and oh so helpful. Leslie met with us a few times before the ceremony to ensure we covered all of the details and to ensure we created the perfect ceremony that represented our personalities and desires. On the boat, she was not just the JP but helpful in calming us and directing events of the day to make sure we all had a good time and that our guests, family and friends were comfortable. Leslie is gracious and extremely professional. Leslie was our JP, but now we consider her a friend. We would recommend her highly to make the best of your special day.

    To Dave and your beautiful, charming wife, your wedding was a wonderful experience from the very beginning. Meeting both of you and learining so much about your exciting lives and your future allowed me to create your ceremony which reflected your personalities. It was a privilege to be your officiant, and one wedding I shall happily remember. Thank you very much for your wonderful review. I appreciate it. I am so happy that we worked so well together. It was indeed a pleasure to be at your side. Be well, and keep celebrating! Leslie

  • Leslie is an amazing woman. There will never be enough words to accurately convey how amazing she is. She goes above and beyond with everything she does. She can handle any curve that is thrown her way and is accomadating with everything. Leslie took the time to truly know us, which only made our ceremony that much better. The ceremony she prepared for us was personalized to our relationship. It was not a standard scripted ceremony that we often hear at weddings. She found the beauty in our relationshp, and put it into words that breathtakingly conveyed how wonderful our joining was. Leslie has kind heart and a gentle spirit. She has a calming way about her that makes even the most stressful moments seem like a breeze. I HIGHLY recommend her to anyone looking for someone who will make your wedding day that much more amazing and heartfelt.

This was a wonderful wedding, a glorious day, and your are going to enjoy a loving and exciting marriage. My best to you both. Sincerely, Leslie

  • If you are a future bride worried about finding the perfect justice of the peace, you have found one. I found Leslie Zises just a couple of weeks before my wedding, and she was really accommodating even at the last minute. She is a hard worker, friendly, professional, honest and caring person. I really loved the dedication and beautiful words she used during the ceremony. Leslie really took the time to ask questions about my husband and I in order to make sure our ceremony was unique. Leslie also arrived at the ceremony site early to see if I needed help with anything and to make sure we were happy and ready for the ceremony. So if you really want a justice of the peace that makes your wishes come true do not hesitate to call Leslie Zises you will love her at the end :)

    Hi Raydania, i don't know how to respond to such a wonderful tribute. It was MY pleasure to work with you and your husband. We corresponded often and well, and were a good working team. My very best wishes to you both for a long and happy life together. Thank you for your faith in me. It is very much appreciated. Warm regards, Leslie

  • Leslie really gave us a fabulous moment in our wedding. Actually, I contacted Leslie very late the day before our wedding day. She got our call at 9pm and we planed to do next 10am. But she was very happy to become our officiate and gave us lots of warms words. I was touched in the beginning. Our wedding was hold at Leslie's fancy garden and nice lawn. She prepared over ten pages nice words and vows in such a short time and she even put some Chinese poems. We felt so surprised and moved. In the end, when the ceremony was over and Leslie lead us to her nice garden and shared with us her delicious cake and peach tea specially made for us. The sun shine was beautiful this morning and we had a nice talk with each other over one hour. Every details Leslie prepared was so great and every moment was so perfect.

    Thank you Chris for your positive and flattering review. I really enjoyed working with you and Roi. You were so helpful with your emails, which made our communication about your wedding go smoothly and efficiently. It was such an honor to officiate at your wedding. We had a wonderful day in Boston at the public gardens under the weeping willows as the Swan Boats cruised by, and the people waived and called out their well wishes to you. How wonderful. Thank you for selecting me to be a part of the most important day in your life. It was my pleasure. All best wishes, Leslie

  • Justice Zises was wonderful. I had absolutely no idea what I was doing as I cobbled together a wedding, and she was so extremely helpful and responsive. She provided a lovely and meaningful ceremony. She is kind, funny, flexible, and takes her duty very seriously. Justice Zises was an integral part of the best wedding I have ever attended.

    Hello Anonymous! I know who you are from your amazing review. You are hysterical. Totally well organized and confident, you and your husband can rule the world. Why not stay on this side of the pond and move to 1600 Pennsylvania Ave? I enjoyed meeting and working with you so very much. Your family is lovely, especially Sam! Thank you for the opportunity to be a part of your life in the most memorable way. I hope you have a wonderful and fulfilling life together. You are certainly headed in that direction.

  • Justice Leslie made my wedding day perfect. My contact with Leslie started with answering my phone call on the first ring. I told her I wanted to plan a last minute wedding and she was gracious enough to meet with me that very day and plan for her very next available date. When Justice Leslie met with me she took the time to get to know me and my bride and listened attentively and incorporated who we were into the ceremony. At the ceremony Leslie had flowers ready for my bride,refreshments and a chocolate cake afterwards. Justice Leslie is a true professional who enjoys her work fully and when you meet her you will understand this instantly.

I appreciate your very kind words, and want you to know that I am so happy that you connected with me. What you have just said is extremely touching. Best wishes always, Leslie

  • Leslie is a wonderful person as well as an officiant. She is warm and very easy to work with. We would recommend her to anyone that wants a unique and personable ceremony. However if you want tridanital I'm sure she will be equally amazing with that. She made our ceremony exactly to our liking. She was there for us in every way that we could have possibly needed. Thank you Leslie you have a very special place in our hearts. We could not have pictured anyone other than you officiating our marriage. Tatum and Laura Miller

    It was a pleasure to work with you from our first communication and meeting, until your wedding day when the rain departed the beach and allowed the sun to shine upon you during your ceremony. Thank you for your extremely kind words in my review. We did work well together, and that was important to insure that the ceremony was exactly as you wished. Being surrounded by your family was another plus. Next year, same time, same place, and let's renew your vows! Sounds good to me. I wish you every happiness. All the best, Leslie

  • Performs a 5-star ceremony if you're a male-female aryan couple. Her conduct related to my ceremony led to a complaint with the Massachusetts Commission Against Discrimination AND an additional complaint with the State House (Room 271) for overcharging her fee! I was notified of fee guidelines after filing my discrimination complaint. Mass Law limits officiant fees to $150. https://malegislature.gov/Laws/GeneralLaws/PartIII/TitleVI/Chapter262/Section35 She can't deny any part of this statement, she's a fraud who ruined my wedding.

    Hello Mrs. Sonya! Thank you for your very kind remarks. With the wedding of your dreams, you are off to a fabulous start with your wonderful husband and family. Being married at the Four Seasons, Boston, is very special. You looked like a princess. It was a pleasure meeting both of you, members of your very kind families, and creating a ceremony that you will remember and treasure for years. It was my pleasure. Warm regards and best wishes, Leslie
