  • Mr. Stoddard gave a wonderful citation for our wedding. He was professional and clear in his words. The guests gave positive reviews. However, as weddings go sometimes there is a delay and he was noticeably anxious to get it over with, saying he had other obligations. But I give a 4/5 for his service

  • Stoddard and his wonderful wife were fun, kind, and knew exactly what they were doing which was great because we didn't! We are young and planned our entire wedding ourselves, having Stoddard's guidance was invaluable. It was a beautiful ceremony and I wouldn't change a thing.

  • Stoddard was absolutely incredible and we couldn't have asked for a better person to officiate our wedding. Stoddard and his wife Kye (who is just as amazing) took the time prior to our wedding to get to know us in order to make our ceremony personalized for just my husband and I. Before the ceremony, I was a nervous reck and Stoddard came into the bridal suite and helped me calm down before walking down the aisle. After the ceremony we had so many guests come up to us to tell us how amazing he was. I cannot say enough good things about Stoddard and would recommend him 1000 times over!

  • Stoddard was amazing and made our ceremony SO special. It captured “us” and our story so perfectly. It was the first ceremony I’d ever been too that people were absolutely raving about the ceremony! He was so easy to work with and you can he does it because he loves to, not for the money. I highly recommend him! If I could give more stars I would!!

  • Stoddard was most welcoming and he made us feel totally comfortable (both in the planning stages and the day of the wedding). His soft spoken presence made us feel at home and I felt like I had known him for some time. His ceremony resonated with us both and we came away feeling strengthened by it.

  • Stoddard was recommended to us by our wedding vendor & we couldn't have been happier choosing him! He is very friendly & talks you through the whole process from the first initial meeting all the way up to the rehearsal/day of! Any and all questions I had, he answered in a very responsive time & any changes I wanted to make - he happily went with! He had very kind words to say to us during our ceremony which was incredibly touching to my husband and I. The whole ceremony flow was perfect and what we had envisioned on our special day & I would recommend him to anyone looking for a great Justice of the Peace - we couldn't have been happier! - Kristen

  • Stoddard truly made our day perfect. We had a last minute wedding (less than two months to plan!), and working with Stoddard made us feel totally confident that everything would be okay. He spent so much time getting to know us, our story, our quirks, etc., which resulted in an incredibly personal ceremony. He also spent a lot of time getting to know our taste and style, and provided us with so many superb examples of readings, blessings, and vows that it made it easy to create a ceremony that fit our relationship and lives. Stoddard was very responsive, and super flexible with our untraditional ceremony. I would recommend him to anyone looking for a Justice of the Peace. Thank you so much, Stoddard!

  • From the first time we met Stoddard we knew he was the perfect JP. He made us feel very comfortable and really got to know us as a couple. He has many different readings, blessings, etc. that you can choose from which truly made our ceremony unique and so special! He truly made our wedding ceremony amazing!

  • We can’t say enough great things about Stoddard. We are a older gay couple that was looking to do a last minute mid - week wedding, and Stoddard was very accommodating. He gave us quick, easy to fallow step - by - step guidance throughout the whole processes. He was warm and hospitable, welcoming us into his home as if we were old friends. He designed and wrote a very touching ceremony for us, giving it a heartwarming personal touch. We weren’t expecting such an awesome experience, and were pleasantly surprised, that made our special day even more special. We highly recommend Stoddard.

  • Stoddard was outstanding to work with for our wedding ceremony. He met with us well in advance of the wedding day to go over our preferences for the ceremony and to get an idea about who we were as a couple. He was timely in his response to any questions we had and gave plenty of options on deciding what we wanted said or done during our ceremony. He made the rehearsal go very smooth and everyone felt comfortable for the big day. The ceremony on wedding day itself went beautifully. He helped keep our nerves down when we were nervous and his presentation of the ceremony was outstanding and professional. He also made the ceremony itself very personnel, not just your average cookie cutter type people have been to before. I would highly recommend Stoddard to anyone looking for a Justice of the Peace for their wedding ceremony.

  • Stoddard was very professional from our first meeting, very detailed! He didn't skip any details and went over everything with us and made sure we fully understood all the material. He was very responsive to all e-mail communications. He catered the whole ceremony to exactly what we asked for and gave us more than enough ideas to make the ceremony special and personal to us. He got to know us and in the ceremony he had a few words about us meeting and getting to where we were today thought brought every to tears. Highly recommend to anyone!!
