Officiant role:Justice Of The Peace  

I am an experienced Justice of the Peace who brings humor, love and understanding to your ceremony.  From the time you contact me to the time I file your certificate with the town clerk, your ceremony is my top priority.  I welcome questions and interaction regarding the ceremony, which is written based on your love story.  It is my honor and privilege to perform your ceremony.  Please remember that May-September I book quickly.

This review is written on behalf of Cathleen Gautherin, JP. I found Cathleen’s listing on & when I contacted her, she responded quickly. I found her tone to be warm & interested in helping my now husband & I right from the get go. Cathleen & I were in contact for just a few months before our wedding on August 15, 2014. We met once in person, but we emailed frequently. She was always prompt to respond if I had a question or needed to talk about the ceremony. Not only did I feel like she got to know my husband & I through the meeting & emails, but I feel like we got to know her as well & I knew I made a good decision in choosing her as a Justice of the Peace. Cathleen made it a point to be flexible & to connect with us & our story. She expressed constant excitement about being a part of our marriage. Initially, we were unsure about what we wanted as far as a ceremony, but given Cathleen’s experience, she guided us in the right direction & I felt very comfortable with that. She wrote a beautiful ceremony & it was exactly what we wanted. She was very attentive to us & our families the day of the wedding. Our families enjoyed her company & all wanted copies of our vows! I would highly recommend Cathleen as a JP. Jodi & Scott

"Cathleen's ability to engage us with her thorough interview and completion of "our story" was extraordinary. She completed our wedding ceremony draft in a very timely manner and was very open to our feedback as well as flexible incorporating additional items to meet our needs. Cathleen was just as much a part of our special day as our family, we are forever thankful for the time and thoughtfulness she put into making our day forever memorable!" Jay & Janice Wood

Cathleen was professional, flexible and accommodating. A few days before our big day, we met at her house and causally discussed our relationship and what brought us to this point. When we left, we felt like we had just visited and old and dear friend. We opted for her to write our vows and were delighted with what she put together. She narrated our story in a very thoughtful, entertaining and fun way. We couldn't have picked a better person to officiate our ceremony. And I can’t end without mentioning her husband George who very graciously stepped in to save the day as our photographer. The pictures were very professionally done. Thanks George! Stacey and Mark

We had a wonderful and magical wedding on October 5, 2014 at the Pond House venue. A big part of that magic was due to the justice of the peace, Cathleen Gautherin. She has an amazing ability to listen and get the real gist of what you are saying. She offered ideas and suggested wording and we still felt that our ceremony was all ours. Cathleen was such a warm wonderful guide throughout the entire event. We wholeheartedly recommend her to any couple who wants a truly special day. Deb and Wendy

Matthew and I just got home from our honeymoon and we just wanted to tell you what an absolutely fabulous job you did with the ceremony! We have been getting compliments from the moment we were introduced into the main room up until tonight! Everyone loved how personal and intimate the ceremony was. You had many people crying (which I honestly wasn't expecting) and the laughter was amazing too! And that whole card reading was just an incredible surprise that we both completely adored! You were such a pleasure to work with and if we ever end up needing a JP again (vow renewal?) you will be the first to know! I just wish you could have stuck around to party with us! ^_^ Again you were fantastic and I'll be giving your name and email to every one of my single friends! We couldn't possibly be more happy with our ceremony <3 Sending sooooo much love! Taylor and Matthew
