  • Steven was incredible, it was very important to my husband and I to incorporate humor in our ceremony and Steven did just that. He responded quickly to any question I had. I tried my best not to be a bridezilla and he did an amazing job putting me and my anxiety at ease.

    Good morning Sarah! Apparently, your definition of a "bridezilla" and mind are quite different! I thoroughly enjoyed working with you, Joe, the kids and your bridal party and family, and I thank you, once again, for asking me to officiate your ceremony. I wish you and yours all the best in the future! Kind regards, Steven

  • We are so incredibly glad that we selected Steven to officiate our wedding. He met with us a few weeks before the wedding so that he could get to know us and our story a little bit. We felt comfortable with Steven immediately. He is witty and personable, just a fun guy to be around. He also has great empathy and skill, and the vows he prepared for us exceeded our expectations. Because of Steven, our exchange of vows was deeply personal and meaningful. He is an extremely gifted JP, and any couple would be lucky to have him perform their ceremony.

    Dear Regan: Thank you so much for your kind words! It really means a great deal to me that you and Bill were pleased with your ceremony, and it was my pleasure and honor to be a part of your special day. Best wishes to you both - always! Steven

  • Steve was the perfect fit for our wedding. He was genuine and thoughtful in ensuring that he helped us plan the perfect ceremony to fit OUR wedding. He provided different options and aspects that could be added to a ceremony to highlight what was important to us, and to truly make our first walk down the aisle as husband and wife, one to remember. He was thoughtful in truly understanding our story and thorough to make sure that every detail was captured. He was flexible in the times that we were able to meet and it was comfortable and enjoyable to sit with Steve each time. We are extremely grateful for all of his work to have made our wedding so special. Five stars from the Kilmartins!

  • Steven Dembow was a phenomenal Justice of the Peace and we were thrilled to have him with us on our wedding day. Steve went above and beyond in all aspects as our officiant, from accompanying us to City Hall to obtain our marriage certificate, to being just an overall pleasure to work with the entire time. Steve was prompt in his responsiveness and in getting us drafts of our wedding ceremony, and was extremely helpful throughout our decision process of what to include in our ceremony. His many years of experience with all kinds of ceremonies meant he could provide us with examples and advice on how to make our day the absolute best it could be. I can't recommend Steven Dembow enough as a Justice of the Peace and hope you decide to work with him for your wedding too!

  • We got married on 8/11/18. Steven was awesome, professional and funny. He is a seasoned veteran to officiating a wedding. He helps the couple prepare well in advance and adds a few personal touches for comic relief when appropriate. He suggests particular pieces for what suits the couple during the ceremony. We throughly enjoyed Steven officiating our ceremony. By the end of the day he felt like family to us. Highly suggest Hiring him for your special day.

  • Steven was very easy to work with, he was quick to respond to emails and had a lot of good ideas to add to our ceremony. Steven had asked that I write him an e-mail so he could get to know myself and my fiance. This was challenging to do as compressing 6 years of your life into one e-mail feels near impossible, though I knew it was a necessary evil so he could write a ceremony that felt personal to us. When it came time for him to write the ceremony, he went me the rough draft on Monday night for our wedding that Saturday. He said the e-mail I had sent him was so well written he essentially put it into the ceremony. When I went to look at the ceremony, he was correct, the e-mail was basically copied and pasted into the ceremony. I didn't like this at all as it felt too personal, and the e-mail was written so he could get to know us better. Everyone attending the wedding already knows us so that e-mail contacted a lot of information they didn't need to hear again. We went back and forth... Read more

    Good evening Samantha: Thank you for taking the time to summarize your thoughts about your recent ceremony; I, of course, was not happy to learn that you felt there were two things that "left a bad taste in your mouth." Believe me when I say that you are correct in that I meant absolutely NO disrespect to you or your grandfather by anything I might have done or said. My style may be considered "folksy" and "relaxed" by some, and, in this instance, it is obvious that my approach was the wrong one to take. Please convey my sincerest apologies to you and your grandfather and to any guests or members of your bridal party who may have been offended, for, clearly, that was not my intent. Regarding the ceremony I put together, the reason for e-mailing it to you for review was to ensure that you and your husband were comfortable with it and whether changes were necessary; had you asked for further edits, I would have been happy to do so without question - right up until the last minute. Some couples are fine with lots of details; others, perhaps, not so much. I take my direction from each couple, but I need to know their honest feelings about what I put together for them. I am truly sorry you didn't give me another opportunity to further edit the ceremony if you were still not satisfied with the revision I sent you. Having said all of this, I still would like to thank you for using my services, and I wish you and Robert all the best! Kind regards, Steven.

  • Steven was professional, took all input from us and incorporated it into our ceremony in a casual, light hearted and at times humorous way. He gave us exactly what we asked for. We would recommend Steven to anyone looking for a respectful, dedicated and passionate JP.
