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 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!

We would highly recommend Don. He took the time to meet with us prior to our ceremony in order to get to know us so that he could personalize our service. He thought of things we never would have thought of and his guidance was so helpful. He wrote a wonderful ceremony for us and we are forever appreciative.

Don did a beautiful job on our wedding day. He met with us early on to get a feeling for who we were and what kind of ceremony we wanted. He provided us with his notes for the ceremony days before the wedding so we could provide input and make any changes. The ceremony was beautiful thanks in large part because of Don....it was a very special day.

Don was the JP for our wedding at the beginning of this month and we could not be happier with our choice. Don really made an effort to meet with us and get to know us as a couple so he could write a personal ceremony. He listened to what we wanted and used his expertise to create a ceremony that was absolutely beautiful. His choice of words touched our hearts and started our marriage off on such a wonderful path! You will not be disappointed choosing him to officiate your ceremony! Thank you, Don.

Don was amazing. We knew when we first met him that he was who we wanted to officiate our wedding. He is very funny and smart. He was very responsive and talked with me many times to help me learn about the different parts of a wedding ceremony and to help me figure out what we wanted to include or leave out. He really knows what he's doing and shows how much he loves what he does which makes you really happy to have him a part of your special day.
He helped us come up with an amazing ceremony that we got a ton of compliments on. It was perfect. We couldn't imagine having had our day without him. He felt like a part of our family and I would recommed him to anyone looking for an officiant for your wedding! Thank you Don!

My wife and I met with Don, the gay J.P., a few months before our wedding and instantly we knew that he was who we wanted to marry us! He not only took the time in explaining how everything works but he really got to know us on a personal level. We walked away from that initial meeting smiling ear to ear knowing that he would make this special. He did not disappoint! In the months leading up to the wedding he was always available for any questions we had. We could not have asked for a more beautiful ceremony. Don did an incredible job in articulating and capturing us as a couple. After the ceremony many of our guests approached us to tell us how wonderful Don was. Anyone would be lucky to have Don officiate their ceremony!
