Stoddard was wonderful to work with. He met with us, learned about us and the kind of ceremony we wanted, and provided us with templates for our vows and ceremony. This allowed us to make the day truly our own. Stoddard is a true professional, and we enjoyed working with him!

Stoddard was great! He helped to really customize our wedding ceremony to make it meaningful. During our initial meeting, he really took the time to learn about us as a couple. He provided a lot of resources to us as a starting point for creating the ceremony: readings, blessings, different ceremony elements, etc. He was really easy to work with and our wedding with him was wonderful.

Stoddard was the best decision we made for our wedding! Its easy to get caught up with all the decor and entertainment decisions for your reception but Stoddard will keep you in the moment and bring you back to why you decided to have a wedding in the first place. Your ceremony is the most important part of your wedding celebrations and Stoddard treats it as such by addressing every detail. Your guests will cry and tell you its the most beautiful ceremony they've ever seen.

Stoddard was our first officiant we met with and we immediately had a connection with him. He welcomed us into his home for the first meeting and took the time to get to know us. He walked us through each part of the ceremony and made recommendations to us to make it exactly what we wanted.

Our guests loved the ceremony. From the beginning when Stoddard requested everyone shut off their phones for an unplugged ceremony (which our photographer was grateful for), throughout the ceremony where he told our guests our story and struggles we went through over the years of being separated by distance as well as all the way back to our first meeting.

Our guests were able to experience our love for each other, our family and our guests. Stoddard brought out the best of our relationship and made us feel comfortable and relaxed on our day as many brides are filled with nerves. Stoddard is such a caring and kind man that made our day the best ever! I highly recommend him to anyone looking for a personal experience that will leave your guests touched by your ceremony.

Stoddard is a gem - the kind of genuine soul you want to be part of your wedding. My husband and I are of completely different backgrounds (Indian-born and American-Italian-Irish) and we wanted our ceremony to be unique to us and our relationship. Stoddard knocked it out of the park! We got so many compliments on how lovely the readings and vows were, as well as Stoddard's words and reflections. I wouldn't change anything about it! Thank you Stoddard for being part of our day and for making it so, so special!

Selecting Stoddard for our wedding ceremony JP was the easiest and best decision we made throughout the wedding planning process. We instantly knew that he was the JP we would meet and book for our ceremony. Videos of ceremonies online showed a warm soft voice, a quiet, gentle demeanor, and someone who knew how to make a ceremony touching and unique through the use of his words. After meeting with him in person and talking for a couple of hours, we moved forward with having him conduct our ceremony. Stoddard gave us many different versions of vows, ring exchanges, readings, etc to work with. We were able to customize our ceremony and put our own spin on it while staying true to Stoddard's style. He was supportive and encouraging during the rehearsal and the day of, making sure my nerves were settled so that I could enjoy and be in the moment. It was clear that he was invested in us as a couple so that we could have a wonderful experience. We are extremely happy and blessed that Stoddard was the one who performed such a special ceremony. My father loved this part of the day the most, and felt that Stoddard was so warm and gentle that he felt like he knew him for years, even though they just interacted briefly. My husband and I would recommend him, hands down, time and time again. Stoddard, it was a true pleasure. We thank you so very much for your special role in our day. -Marissa and Jason

Working with Stoddard for our non-religious wedding ceremony was one of the best decisions that I made for my wedding. Stoddard is very easy to work with - he has a very informative wesbite, reasonable prices, and is willing to work with you as much or as little as you would like to design your ceremony. We met with him at his home for an initial consultation and then made the decision to work with him - we felt that his kind and comforting spirit was something that we wanted for our wedding day. He then sent us a suggested ceremony outline based on what we had talked about in person as well as suggestions for writing our own vows. We decided that we wanted to have a tree planting ceremony, and Stoddard had some wonderful suggestions for wording and on how to do it. We also had him come to our house to do a wedding rehearsal with our wedding party. He walked us through what would go on the day of, how we might want to walk in, and what would be going on each step of the way. It made my husband and I feel a lot more comfortable about how the wedding ceremony would go the next day.

We have had multiple guests from the wedding say how beautiful the ceremony was, how much the officiant made it special and looked comfortable officiating and knew what he was doing (I guess some JPs don't?).

I am SO glad that we chose Stoddard to officiate our wedding - it was a beautiful ceremony, and he really emphasized how the moment was really all about showing our commitment to our love. You can tell when you work with him that he really loves officiating weddings and puts a lot of thought and care into what he does.

Thank you, Stoddard, for helping us make our wedding day special.
