My mission is to work with you and your partner to create a day you will always remember. Located just 2 minutes away from the Branford, CT town hall is my turn of the century home. If you and your partner choose, we can perform the ceremony in my garden, where you will find a charming gazebo, soothing water features and my prize winning roses. Perhaps an inside wedding is more to your liking? The fieldstone fireplace is the perfect spot for you to say 'I Do' while a pianist plays the baby grand piano in the foyer.

Maybe you just need a flexible, caring, sensitive Justice of the peace willing to work with the team of professionals you've already hired, or maybe you just want someone to simply officiate. What ever you needs are, I can work with you to make your day a special one.

This is YOUR special day. It is about you. I can offer you a wealth of knowledge, and guide you through the officiating process so you can make informed decisions. I can even give you some ideas about writing your own vows, or orchestrating personal elements, such as a unity candle, into the ceremony. I consider the opportunity to be a part of 'the happiest day of your life' to be an honor. Selecting my services will guarantee a special day with spectacular memories that will last you a lifetime.

Don was so open to making suggestions, but was also extremely open to hearing and incorporating our ideas which made him very easy to work with.
He gave us the guidance to put together, with his help, the perfect ceremony for us without ever making us feel pushed in one direction or another. He made the process fun and completely personal and was willing to work with our schedules to get the details worked out.
He made our ceremony exactly what we hoped that it would be and even exceeded our expectations which is saying a lot. We had more compliments from our guests on our unique and personal ceremony than on any other aspect of our day by far. If you're looking to make your ceremony completely personal and unique to you, I can't imagine recommending anyone higher than I can recommend Don.

Don,

Now that the craziness dust has settled, we wanted to reach out to you to thank you for everything you did to make our day special. We felt like we didn't get a chance to give you a proper goodbye at the wedding. I guess people were right when they said it would all be a big blur :) We really appreciate everything you did, from the initial meeting down to the ceremony. We got several compliments in regards to your service. Our family and friends noted about how wonderful, personalized and heartfelt your words were, with one person stating "it was like he's known you both for 20 years". It was truly an amazing, wonderful, perfect day all around and we couldn't have asked for anything more.

So from the bottom of our hearts, thank you!

Don captured our Wedding Day perfectly! He found the words that expressed exactly what was in our hearts. Dave and I knew when we met Don that he was the one. He listened, asked the right questions, and weaved his magic into words that captivated the room.
Thank you Don for making our day even more special!!

Don is a wonderful person, with a good heart and soul. It was a pleasure to have him marry my husband and I on Friday, January 9, 2014, It will always be a special day as Don accommodated our wishes to be married
the first snowfall of 2015. On the shores of Stony Creek in the midst of of our "mini blizzard" he performed the ceremony. Don got to know us well and the 30 years we have been together The service reflected
Don's understanding of who we were, His words were precious and beautiful.This will always be on top of our memory lists of joys.

Don was fantastic! We cannot speak highly enough of him and the ceremony that he helped us create. Hopefully the following will help you understand the fantastic service he provided, his care and attention to detail.

My wife and I first met Don at a coffee shop so that we could all get to know each other, and make sure that he would be a good fit for the ceremony that we envisioned. In this time we discussed our backgrounds and any family traditions we might have, as well as our relationship in general.

When we found how thoughtful and professional, yet friendly, warm and open he was, we knew that he would be a fantastic fit for us.

Don used his notes from our initial discussion to create a personal ceremony that perfectly captured the emotions of the event. Although our ceremony was very simple, Don was open to just about anything.

Brilliant!
