Thank you for writing such a beautiful and personal ceremony for us.
Officiant role:Justice Of The Peace, Notary
The key to love is inside us all …
It takes time and patience to unlock all the ingredients
that will take you to its threshold;
it is the continual learning process
that demands a lot of work …
but the rewards are more than worth the effort …
and that is the key to love.

Thank you for writing such a beautiful and personal ceremony for us.
Carol, Thank you for enriching our special day.
Carol, Thank you for being part of our wedding and giving us the ability to be married in your presence. We are so blessed that we could share this special moment with you. The readings truly made our ceremony so special. I will forever cherish those words. Nick and I are so happy, thank you again! XX00
Dear Carol, Thank you so much for officiating our wedding. It was everything we wanted and so much more! The ceremony was perfect, and working with you was an absolute pleasure! Thank you so much
Dear Carol Thank you so very much for a beautiful ceremony. You looked smashing! I appreciate the ribbons you provided for the handfasting ceremony and the very dainty hankie. I absolutely love it. Thank you again for everything and we hope you had a good time too. The newly joined Mr.& Mrs. R. K.
Carol, Thank you for all you have done for us to make today so special. I know the ceremony will be absolutely beautiful. You were wonderful to work with. Thank you for being so accommodating.
Dear Carol, Thank you so much for officiating our wedding, joining us for dinner, and the beautiful handkerchief that you gave to Olivia. We will always remember the words that you spoke at our ceremony and cherish the handkerchief as a keepsake. We are grateful for your role at our wedding.
Dear Carol, We wanted to thank you for being such a wonderful JP for our wedding ceremony! From our very first meeting at the CT diner we felt like we made the best choice! I was sold when you asked about the colors of the dresses so you didn't clash. You were great and my whole family loved you. We can not thank you enough.
Dearest Carol, We can't thank you enough for our beautiful ceremony. I've always admired and recommended you to brides, but of course it is completely different being "the bride." What made it so special was our friendship, I trusted you completely and it could not have been more perfect.
Hi Carol, Hope all is well. Tracy and I wanted to thank you again for the terrific job you did as our officiant at our May 25th wedding at the St. Clements Castle. We are happy to share our special day and making it a most memorable one.
Dear Carol, Thank you for being such a perfect Justice of the Peace and special guide for this bride and groom. Your good energy and coaching was our staff of strength to lean on and Thank you for being our angel of the most important moments of the wedding day.
Carol, Happy New Year! Sunny and I wish to say thank you for making our wedding ceremony so memorable. We greatly appreciate all that you did for us. Our guests said that your words were special and meaningful. We appreciate that you took the time to meet us at the Morning Glory café (we met my family there for brunch on Sunday morning). Thanks, also, for the babysitting tip at the Bee and Thistle, which was helpful for our guests with children. We will be sure to recommend you to our friends and family. I hope our paths cross again. Best wishes,
Carol, Bill and I can't thank you enough for being out Justice of the Peace for our wedding. It was exactly what we wanted and couldn't have asked for a better day.
Dear Carol, Thank you so much for officiating our ceremony. It was a wonderful day.
Carol, Thank you so much for marrying us! We will highly recommend you to anyone we know that is engaged.
Carol, Thank you so much for being part of our wedding. It means a lot to us that you wrote such a beautiful vow for us to take as husband and wife. Thank you again.
We feel so honored and happy that we have you as the officiant of our wedding. We're excited for you to meet our friends and family. And you will meet people from all around the globe and especially from your favorite place, The Netherlands.
Tracey and I wanted to thank you for performing our wedding yesterday. You did a wonderful job. Even though we read through it ahead of time, it was still like we were hearing it for the first time. It was a perfect day and we truly appreciate the role you played in it. Everyone, and I mean EVERYONE, commented about how beautiful the ceremony was. There weren't many dry eyes. I hope some folks took the time to talk to you but if they did not, I want you to know that there were many many compliments. Plenty of folks said it was the most beautiful ceremony they've ever seen. Thanks again Carol. We are grateful and wish you all the best.
It was important to both my husband and me that we felt comfortable with our officiant: from our first meeting with Carol, we knew we were in the right hands. We loved the ceremony draft she shared with us--and she happily worked with us to tailor it in a few ways to match our specific needs. Every phone call/email was answered promptly and professionally; she was a delight to work with every step of the way.
Carol was extremely professional from start to finish. The moment we met with her, my husband and I felt comfortable and confident that she would deliver the ceremony of our dreams. She was timely and prepared and her well thought words were sincere and heartfelt- there wasn't a dry eye in the house!
We wanted to stay as low key and easygoing as possible -- and the whole day turned out to be just that! You're wonderful!
We were very touched by how you made the moment very meaningful, as well as spiritual. You went well above and beyond what you are required to do and are indeed involved in a ministry yourself.
Once again, thank you so much for officiating our wedding. Everyone thought the ceremony was perfect and wanted to pass along that a lot of people complimented us on your work. Once again, thank you so much for making our wedding so perfect.
Thank you again for all you did for John and me on our wedding day. The ceremony was perfect and I so appreciate all of your help with my boots, gum, and the little errands throughout the day!. We are so blessed to have you be a part of our special day.
Jason and I would like to thank you for two special days of love and devotion. You have a very special, familiar and intimate quality about you. You will be forever in our hearts.
We just wanted to send you a quick Thank You for officiating at our wedding and for doing such a great job. Everyone told us how beautiful and unique the ceremony was and that they loved each aspect of it. You did an amazing job and we're really glad that we found you!
Everything was great. You looked amazing and the ceremony was short, to the point, yet still meaningful. You addressed all of our concerns and wants and needs. You did a phenomenal job and I would have no problem passing on your services to others. The readings you had were great and I feel like you were able to connect on our level as to how we envisioned our ceremony to be.
I wanted to thank you again for your services, which really helped to make our wedding day special. So many people in my family mentioned how lovely you were, and that you did a fantastic job at the ceremony. Not even kidding - they loved you! One more thanks, for the beautiful gift you gave while we were taking pictures outside. That was very thoughtful, and much appreciated.
The wedding ceremony was perfect and we had a wonderful time on our wedding day. Thank you so much for making us feel very comfortable and for arranging a very special ceremony. My brother Fred was very happy to add the readings and our family couldn't be happier with how everything came together. We only have the highest praise for you and will always have happy memories of the most wonderful day of our lives.
As we get close to our second anniversary, we fondly think of you and how special you made our wedding vows. Thank you so much for being the beginning of our two years of happily ever after.
Many states have abolished the position of Justice of the Peace, instead giving the privilege of performing civil marriages to notaries, judges and government officials. Findajp is working to include legal marriage officiants in all states, no matter what title they hold. Stay tuned!
