The first time I spoke with Justice John, I knew that I wanted him to be our wedding officiant. He is kind, thoughtful, flexible and detail-minded. Not only did Justice John perform a beautiful ceremony on our special day, but he shared helpful tips for making arrangements during the planning process to make sure that everything would go smoothly. He made our day truly memorable for the rest of our lives together. We felt grateful for having him. Thank you, Justice John!Apr 24, 2018Verified
We loved having Justice John as part of our special day! He was light-hearted and fun at the rehearsal and on our wedding day. He helped everyone involved feel at ease. He also was very flexible with the exact wording of the ceremony, and was even willing to change things around for us on the day of the ceremony. We are very happy that we chose John to be our officiant, and I'm sure you will be too!Apr 27, 2017Verified
My daughter and fiancé met with John and they are thrilled that he will be officiating their wedding. He adds to the excitement of this special event. They are anxious to meet again and continue working with him on planning their ceremony. What a comfort it is to have met a special person to marry them! John reached out to me and thanked me for introducing them to him and remarked on the wonderful time they had together.Jul 10, 2015Verified
John was the officiant for mine and my now husbands wedding. From the first time we met john, we knew we had made the right decision. He was very patient with us, offered great advice and helped us design our perfect ceremony. He was always available by Phone or email, and willing to meet in person. He was a great addition to our wedding, and we would be happy to recommend him to anyone!Aug 28, 2014Verified
Justice John was an amazing part of our wedding day. We are from Florida, getting married in Massachusetts, so we communicated through email to finalize vows and plans for our big day. He was amazing throughout the entire process, you really could not have a better officiant as part of your special day. He was amazing start to finish.Sep 6, 2013VerifiedJustice John's reply
It was my pleasure; thank you for the kind words. You are a perfect couple, and besides, I can now visit Gatorland if I'm ever in the area. :) Thank you for choosing me for your special day.
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?The cost of the wedding ceremony is regulated by the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. The fee is $150 anywhere in Massachusetts other than Beverly. In Beverly, the fee is $100. Most weddings I officiate are within 30 miles of Beverly, although I have traveled more for special reasons. I am in and around Boston often.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?Before selecting me as your officiant, I encourage a consultation. There is no charge for this, but it has a high value to both of you, and especially to me. There needs to be a connection between the three of us. During this meeting, we will discuss the elements of the ceremony, and I usually can answer questions that you haven't thought to ask. I also explain what you can expect from me at the rehearsal (which is optional) and the wedding day. After that meeting, we exchange email to produce a ceremony to your liking. While a second in-person consultation is possible, it's usually not needed. The next time we meet in person is the rehearsal or the wedding day. A 50% down payment is accepted around the time of the consultation. Final payment can be made at the rehearsal or prior to the ceremony on your wedding pay.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I love being with happy people on happy days like a wedding day. Public speaking comes easily to me, and working with groups of people is a pleasure. I have worked professionally in broadcasting, and my current work experience is in human resources. I was also involved in the founding a local Toastmasters club which hones all kinds of presentation.
