Officiant role:Justice Of The Peace  

I love writing unique, customized, very personal ceremonies with subtle drama and splashes of good humor. I work very closely with each couple to ensure their ceremony is so special and a "one-of-a-kind" creation.  I also enjoy adding little ceremonies within the ceremony, help organize and then attend the wedding rehearsal and also contact the other vendors involved with the ceremony, in order to produce a seamless, care-free event, on your behalf.

Your ceremony should reflect everything that is of importance to you – please feel free to contact me at any time to discuss your wedding plans and how I might assist you to make your special day a beautiful, cherished memory.


  • Words cannot begin to describe how perfect you made our day for both of us! Your personalized words, time, thoughtfulness and assuring everything was perfect was beyond our wildest dreams. We will never forget how special and meaningful you made it for us! Thank You from the bottom of our hearts.

  • Shelley Schulman is wonderful, because of her my wedding was a huge success. A mutual friend recommended her to me and even though she had a wedding the night before she agreed to officiate at our Sunday afternoon wedding. As soon as I met her, I knew that she was perfect. She was even kind enough to go to the venue with us before the wedding to help us figure out how the wedding would be staged. She did a wonderful, personalized ceremony and it was exactly what I wanted. She is a very organized and detailed person, she really enjoys being a JP and does an excellent job. I’m so glad that I found her.

  • Shelley was such a pleasure to work with and she put together a perfect ceremony that reflected us as a couple. She took the time to get to know us and, in doing so, was able to add a special touch that was truly moving for us and our families.

  • I attended a wedding of my husband’s friends where I had never met the bride or groom, and while Shelley spoke about the couple during the ceremony I felt like I knew them. Shelley made the ceremony so personal, I knew I wanted her to be our wedding officiant. From our first meeting, to the rehearsal, to our wedding day, Shelley was a pleasure to work with. She listened to what we wanted, made suggestions and expand on our ideas, creating a unique ceremony that expressed who we are and what was important to us. It included our personal story, a surprise tribute to our parents and special wedding vows. Her warmth, attention to detail, and genuine interest in who Bart and I are as individuals and as a couple made us feel like we were being married by a friend. I\\\'m so glad when we look back on our wedding day we won\\\'t just remember a great celebration but we\\\'ll also remember exchanging vows in a very special ceremony tailored specifically for us.

  • Shelley, how do we begin to thank you for all that you did for us surrounding our Renewal of Vows Ceremony - the tender, meaningful ceremony that incorporated everything we had said was important to us, blending our twin daughters so beautifully into the ceremony, the pretty bouquet you made for me, the Best Man and Maid of Honor name tags you provided, and the lovely comments we received from our guests regarding the whole, wonderful experience. Thank you so much for your extraordinary efforts to make our 30th Anniversary Renewal of Vows Ceremony such an amazing and memorable experience! We will cherish it always.
