  • Leslie is very kind, thoughtful, professional, and respectful - truly a fabulous justice! She was recommended to us by one of our mutual friends, who also had Leslie to officiate his civil ceremony with his wife locally and was very happy with the experience. We are very fortunate to have Leslie to officiate in our civil ceremony. We had a large destination wedding planned overseas and so had focused most of our energy planning that one, and we were looking for a simple ceremony to be officiated locally. We enjoyed our phone conversations with Leslie, and she encouraged us to think about what we would want in our civil ceremony, helping us brainstorm ideas and even coming up with an ideal location for the ceremony that was meaningful for us (since my spouse and I met at work in the hospital, we chose the hospital chapel as a low-key place for the ceremony). The ceremony led by Leslie was beautiful - and we were extremely thankful of her help and thoughtfulness!!

  • Leslie was the perfect choice to be our Justice of the Peace. I found Leslie by searching for a JP on wedding websites, because she has so many wonderful reviews I reached out to her and set up a meeting. Leslie created a customized script for our ceremony and was so easy to talk to. She was very flexible and catered to any request we had. She was prepared with a either tissue, white thread or anything else I needed during my wedding day. She was such an important part of our special day, I could not have been happier with Leslie as our officiant.

    Julia, you made my day special. Thank you for asking me to be your Justice on a beautiful day in June! Everything went so nicely for both of you as I suspected. Congratulations to you, and very best wishes for a wonderful future. Most sincerely, leslie

  • How do you sum up something as special as Leslie’s ceremony?? Perfection, she is kind and so insightful and thoughtful. She took the time to learn about us, our beginning and how we go to that that day. She did a totally CUSTOME ceremony that we have not stopped getting compliments on how intimate and special it made our guests feel. We LOVED working with Leslie and would tell you, if you want something special call her!!

    Thank you Ted! Thank you for the kind words and the opportunity to be with you on your wedding day. It was an honor, and truly a privilege. You are a great couple, and I can imagine the wonderful life you will share year to year. With all best wishes, Leslie

  • Leslie was much more than an officiant. She embraced us and our story, hosted us at her place and made us feel like home. My husband and I highly recommend her as an officiant and we hope to see her again, now as a friend of ours!

  • Leslie made our wedding day! Leslie is thoughtful, flexible, quick on her feet, funny and most of all kind. She made our ceremony personal and meaningful, just what we'd hoped for. Before the wedding day, Leslie took the time to sit down with us in her studio, learn about our history and shape the kind of ceremony that was just right for us. Along with being extremely good at what she does, Leslie also happens to be such a nice person to be around (with a twinkle in her eye!) that you almost can't believe she's real. Quite simply, we were given a gift by finding Leslie and can't recommend her highly enough. Thank you, Leslie!

  • Leslie is an extremely nice person and very professional during the whole wedding process. Two months before the wedding, she prepared drinks and cakes for us, spent nearly two hours with us talking about our own stories, and customized her speech at the wedding based on our discussion. Her speech is very touching and heart-warming. Everyone in our wedding likes the speech very much. We highly recommend her to any potential couples as a wedding officiant!

    responded with the following comments.

    Hello Tiansheng, Thank you very much for your extremely kind words. It was my pleasure to be with you and Liang, your families and friends at the hotel for your wedding. It was a marvelous day which I shall remember fondly. Thank you for your constant communication and kindness throughout this wonderful process. I know you and Liang are going to have a wonderful life together ~ you are an outstanding couple! With all best wishes, Leslie

  • I simply do not have sufficient words to describe the memorable wedding day and ceremony Leslie Zises gave my new husband Mark and I. We came to Boston for the Boston Marathon and had no idea how to go about getting married out of state, who to use for flowers and find a location that matched our style. Leslie has all the answers. This woman knows Boston inside an out and from our first e mail I knew this was a can-do woman who would not let us down. The day of the ceremony Mark and I were thrown off due to weather and an unaccommodating venue. Not to worry...Leslie made it all ok with her quick thinking and true dedication to making us happy. She solved the problem. Our ceremony was personal, thoughtful, memorable and meaningful. She made our day and "thank you" to her does not seem like enough. Part officiant, part wedding planner and now a friend. Have her make your day as special as she made ours.

    responded with the following comments.

    I love the "part friend" remark best, and hope that you stay in touch now and then. Congratulations again on the marathon and marriage ~ both exciting and very successful! You are a remarkable team, couple, individuals, and it was indeed an honor to share all the excitement and joys with both of you. Safe travels back home, but come visit Boston soon and OFTEN! With most sincere wishes, Leslie

  • Leslie is one of the kindest and warmest people I have met - she made my wedding day truly special and went ABOVE AND BEYOND to infuse joy, laughter, and meaning to the celebration. These are my actual words to her after the ceremony: "My heart is so full, a huge part of that is you and I will be forever grateful. In the short time I've known you, you've inspired me to be a kinder and better person." She is truly amazing, one-of-a-kind. I recommend her in the strongest way possible.

    responded with the following comments.

    Shreya, there are no words! You are one of the kindest women I have ever met presently and prior to my position as a Justice of the Peace. Thank you for your glowing words, but more than that, thank you for your trust in me, your communication, insight into life. You are the needle in the haystack, the icing on the cake! Thank you! Always the best, Leslie

  • Due to changes in our wedding plans, we chose Leslie as our wedding officiant on a very short notice based on all her numerous reviews. Leslie was professional throughout and sent us a draft of the ceremony beforehand. However, since we didn't receive the draft until the night before our wedding ceremony, we wished that we had a little more time to review it. Overall, the end product was lovely and we were able to tailor our vows and the wedding passages to fit our ceremony length and style.

    responded with the following comments.

    Hello Ivy, Thank you for your honest review. For those who are reading this, I would like to explain although the wedding draft was received the night prior to the wedding, we had been in communication after the initial phone conversation. During the two weeks prior to Ivy's ceremony, I did not have comcast, verizon, or wifi service as I was relocating to a new residence which was known to the couple. I too was frustrated that I could not get the ceremony delivered earlier, but thrilled that everything worked out for this extremely wonderful couple. I loved working with them, as they were so kind, patient and very understanding. I was told their ceremony was appreciated by many of the family and guests, and by them repeatedly. It was a pleasure meeting Ivy and her husband, their families and preparing their ceremony. Thank you Ivy for your kind words. Most sincerely, Leslie
