A Joyful Experience!
In 2017, my future sister-in-law and brother-in -law asked me if I would be interested in officiating their marriage. I had never considered doing something like that before, but after some careful consideration, I agreed to become a Justice of the Peace in New Hampshire in order to legally marry them. I loved going through the planning process with them! When it was time to perform the wedding ceremony, I was nervous, of course, but everything came naturally to me once the ceremony began. I made an important discovery that day: joining two people together in marriage is a JOYFUL experience!
It was this awesome experience that led me to start advertising that I was available to officiate marriages for anyone who has a New Hampshire marriage license. It may sound cheesy, but I feel like I am the absolute luckiest person in the world to have a job that celebrates love every single day! For me, it doesn’t matter if it is a big wedding or a private elopement; it is an honor to be a part of every ceremony that I officiate.
It is my second favorite thing in the world (first is playing with my kids) to get to know a couple’s love story and to create a ceremony that takes them away from the madness of a wedding, and allows them for a few minutes, to truly celebrate and cherish each other. That moment when the couple looks into each other’s eyes for the first time during their ceremony is the best!
