    This is a lovely couple, and I am so glad that they entered a review of me. A beautiful day in September, historic Boston, it was my pleasure to officiate for such a wonderful pair- they were great to work with from the beginning - continued correspondence that was helpful to me, and important to them! 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.

Be well, have a wonderful life!

  • Leslie was simply wonderful to work with! She made me feel like I was top priority at all times and was very responsive to phone calls and emails. She wrote a beautiful ceremony for us and customized it based on our likes. She was super early the day of our wedding and I never had any worries because she was super reliable. She did a great job the day of the wedding and I couldnt recommend her more!

  • Leslie was absolutely amazing. We highly recommend her for any couple. She was kind, friendly, professional, she takes her roll very seriously and puts a personal and loving touch on the ceremony.

  • We had the pleasure of working with Leslie as the officiant of our commitment ceremony. Our union was unconventional since it was a joining of 3 people rather than just 2. And although Leslie had never officiated over a poly-triad ceremony, she embraced it and made us feel very comfortable. She's amazing and definitely lived up to the reputation of being THE BEST justice of the peace ever. Thank you, Leslie, for being such an outstanding woman and making our day and our ceremony so special and customized just for us!

    Thank you for your faith in me at your commitment ceremony. I appreciated all your communication from the time we first spoke up to the day of your union. You are so kind, considerate, and very honest people. I wish you all the happiness and joy in your journey through life. Thank you for contacting me. Most sincerely, Leslie

  • A chance meeting led me to the love of my life. After spending 5 minutes with my future husband I knew this man was special and I could not believe my incredible luck at finding someone I clicked so well with out of the blue. I felt incredibly lucky. And the universe smiled on us again when we decided on a last minute wedding and ran across Leslie's ad with equal amount good fortune and luck! We literally had three days to plan our wedding. When I reached out to Leslie she happened to be driving and pulled over to take the call. We just wanted to get married and didn't have time to have a friend be certified for the day so we needed a justice of the peace. Leslie did so much more than simply solemnize our marriage certificate. We spoke on the phone, exchanged a few emails containing our story, and made a general plan for the day. I didn't know what to expect but I was beyond impressed with the effort Leslie devoted to making sure our "marriage without delay" felt like it had... Read more

    Hi again, I was so thrilled to receive your phone call on “that day,” as you were so excited and filled with enthusiasm— as it should be. Thank you for your immediate correspondence which was so helpful in getting to know you and Omar. The day was a beautiful day for you. I am glad everting worked out as you had hoped and I am so thrilled to have been present with both of you and your family to share in the most outstanding day in your life. Thank you again for your very special remarks, but most of all for choosing me to be your Justice.

  • When we decided to get married by a JP, I found Leslie from the JP database. I read several profiles before deciding on/contacting her. Well, it was one of the best decisions I made! Leslie is amazing! To say that she is nice is an understatement. She is more than that - she actually cares about you as an individual/couple. One of the best qualities about Leslie is that she listens and adapts to our suggestions. We enjoyed working with Leslie, and she did a wonderful job as our officiant. Our family commented on how great she was after the ceremony. Everyone loved the ceremony! I highly recommend Leslie!

    Hello Christina, I want to thank you for such a nice review of me. From the moment we connected, I knew the relationship would be successful. Thank you for your continued communication and openness from the beginning. It was such a pleasure to meet you, your family, the musicians, and be so welcomed by everyone. I wish you every happiness - You are a wonderful couple, and I know your future will be beautiful and bright! Most sincerely, Leslie

  • Leslie was simply amazing! The day of our wedding we did have some snow and not only did she arrive early but she also helped us decorate! Her script was very personalized for me and my husband! We couldn’t be happier with the way the day went!

    responded with the following comments.

    Hi Victoria, Thank you for your wonderful remarks. The snow did not stop any festivities from your day which was wonderful. It is my habit to arrive early wherever I go, but arriving early to your event was more exciting because I got to meet and work along with many of your relatives prior to the ceremony. Thank you for asking me to officiate - it was my pleasure. Best wishes to both of you.

  • I regret to give Leslie less than a stellar review but I was very disappointed in the huge discrepancy between how she sold herself to me in the beginning through our correspondence vs. her follow-through the day of. In retrospect, I realize that Leslie figured she could show up and "wing it" because I had informed her it was a very intimate gathering. Leslie was stumbling through her words throughout the ceremony, mispronouncing the groom's name even though we had gone through this numerous times prior to the day. She had her head stuck in her binder, and was pausing at awkward times throughout the ceremony. It was cringe inducing and distracting when I wanted to be in the moment and focused during the ceremony. I chose her over another justice because Leslie claimed to be a justice who doesn't use "cookie cutter" dialogue. However, I found nothing particularly creative about Leslie's work product for my ceremony. I had to ping her to get a final draft, which turned out to... Read more

    Leslie A. Zises, Justice of the Peace commented... posted 3/28/2018Edit (updated 3/28/2018) I am saddened to receive this review. The actual ceremony for this lovely couple was July 4, 2016. I remember this couple with fond memories. The hours and dedication I put into each and every couple’s ceremony is because I take my position as a justice so seriously. I have the distinction of having been voted by WGBH Boston A-List Best Officiant in 2017, and that does not happen by accident or from reviews like the one above. I have been awarded WeddingWire Couple’s Choice Award since 2012 through 2018 and that speaks volumes. I am sorry you were so disappointed-I hope you are well, and happy! I would like to ask anyone who does read this unfortunate review to please refer to my WeddingWire reviews at thiese siites: http://www.eventwire.com/review/JusticeLeslieZises https://www.weddingwire.com/review/JusticeLeslieZises Thank you very much ~ Leslie
