TESTIMONIALS

"Jonjy performed a simple but meaningful marriage ceremony for me in the middle of the pandemic.  He followed all safety procedures and did a wonderful job.  I wouldn't have changed a thing.  I highly recommend."  

~ Enrique Santos

"At the beginning of the pandemic, I knew it would be challenging finding a Justice of the Peace as a solid fit for my wedding until I found Jonjy. Not only was Jonjy very responsive and reasonable, but he was also able to cater to all our needs.


On another note, I felt like Jonjy put a special bubble or forcefield around our relationship and marriage, protecting us again any dark or evil spirits. It’s been two years now since I’ve been married to an immigrant (she just got accepted her green card after the interview today) and we have always been very happy together. Thanks again Jonjy!"

~ Chris Spinks

Tips for a successful ceremony?

  • Meet your justice

  • Book early

  • Share something personal about your heritage

  • Add a unique ritual, vow insertion, special reading to make it unique

  • Have fun!

  • Commit to meeting your justice and renewing your vows every year at least

What is the simplest most convenient ceremony we can get?

The simplest is an elopement.  An elopement is when the couple comes by themselves and get married in front of their justice.  This is often more convenient to avoid the stress of a big ceremony or with a destination wedding where the couple wants to avoid the legal complexities of marrying a foreign country by getting legally married first before travelling around for their wedding with guests.
