I had been active in a number of community and church positions as well as working in a sales job. All of these roles gave me a great deal of interaction with people from all walks of life. However, something was missing from all this. Something that would leave me with a sense of accomplishment and helping others in a joyous manner.
People often ask me why I chose to become a
Justice of the Peace. The answer is, quite simply, that it chose me.
My friend Bev had been a Justice of the Peace for several years and in fact, had officiated at my brothers’ wedding. Now if you knew Bev, you’d know that she is a remarkable woman: a woman of wit, intelligence, humor, and insight. I knew Bev had been on a quest of sorts for something that would offer her meaning and a chance to have a lasting influence on others’ lives. She seemed to find it as a Justice of the Peace. And so, when I began my own quest, Bev encouraged me in the same direction.

After some further prodding and encouragement by my wife Kathy, I applied for and received my commission as a Justice of the Peace. Immediately, I knew I had made the right choice. My first ceremony was a Renewal of Vows for a couple celebrating their 50th anniversary. What a thrill it was to be part of such a special and joyous occasion!

Since then, I have married couples in a variety of settings and conditions. About half of the weddings I officiate at are young couples being married for the first time, while the remainder are often couples being married for a second or third time. Many of these ceremonies involve children, which makes for an extra special ceremony as a new family is created from two.

So whether you’re being married for the first time or the fifth, whether you’re being married at a Country Club or the beach or a small intimate ceremony at home, I look forward to being part of your wedding on Your Special Day in Your Special Way. Read less

Living in Florida I was hesitate about picking just anyone offline for our wedding taking place in MA. I did some research, read reviews, and decided to go win Alan and Iam so glad I did. Alan stays right on top of everything and makes sure you understand what is going on and what will happen on the big day. He did a great job officiating and I would recommend him to anyone!

I couldn't recommend Alan enough! From our first meeting with him, up until our very last, he was sincere, professional and very organized. Alan very clearly explained all of the different options available to us, provided a multitude of readings to choose from and helped us come up with the perfect layout for our needs. Many guests complimented us on how great the 'flow' of our ceremony was. The process of putting together our ceremony was fun and easy and we couldn't have done it without Alan's genuine interest in helping us do so. Thanks Alan!

Alan was such a pleasure to work with in helping us plan our recent wedding. He was so kind and accommodating, listening to our thoughts and wishes for the ceremony. We loved the readings and his humor and kindness was felt by us and certainly our guests. The day was perfect and we couldn't be happier.

Alan was absolutely terrific. He let us know when we met him how the ceremony would be coordinated and made everything simple and relaxing. Alan really made the ceremony stress free and enjoyable. He also reminds the groom to look at his bride while reciting his vows and not him which can be helpful. I am looking forward to having him do our 5 year anniversary. Thank you Alan

We are so glad that we chose Alan to be our officiant. Throughout the entire process he was a pleasure to work with. He was very open to all of our ideas regarding our ceremony, and provided a great deal of sample material to allow us to build it from scratch. He was very responsive to emails and clear about anything he would need to make our ceremony run smoothly. On the actual day of the wedding, it was clear that Alan had spent plenty of time preparing, and he did a wonderful job. Each member of the party also knew what to do because of how well Alan ran the rehearsal the prior night. We received numerous comments from guests who just could not believe how great our ceremony was, and Alan played a huge part.

We would recommend Alan to any couple looking for an officiant.
