The best!! - Leslie was simply amazing to work with. She’s very sincere and passionate about what she does. She makes you feel like your wedding is a top priority and works hard to ensure that you’re comfortable and happy with the service she provides. She made the ceremony personal and seemed genuinely excited to be apart of our big day. She went above and beyond what is expected of an officiant, even down to literally sitting on the floor to help me into my shoes when I was struggling to get them on!! Our guests had nothing but great things to say about her and so do we. Highly recommend Leslie. She was the best!!!

Perfect ceremony and unbelievable kindness - Leslie was absolutely perfect to work with. She was incredible meticulous with her attention to detail and quick responses. Our wedding came a bit rushed, which led to some anxiety as the day approached. But Leslie provided so many details and guidance that we were completely at ease. Moreover she was incredibly responsive even over a holiday weekend and accommodating with her schedule. For the ceremony, she thought of everything including a cake. Her words for the ceremony were thoughtful, kind, and personalized. From the ceremony, it was very clear that she had spent significant time and thought drafting the vows. We could not be happier. Please consider putting Leslie at the top of your list to officiate.

One of a kind, heartfelt ceremony! - Leslie was very friendly and personable. She got to know me and my husband in detail before the ceremony so that the service was truly heartfelt. She even sent me photos of the venue before the ceremony to ease my worries!

Leslie helped to create our ceremony, and she made it run smoothly and effortlessly. My husband and I first met with Leslie about six months in advance of the ceremony, and she immediately drafted up some wonderful remarks—which were tailored to reflect us as a couple. For example, she incorporated facts about how we met, and the connection we both have to literature, which was particularly appropriate, as the wedding was literary-themed. Her attention to detail and her language use were both exquisite, as were her recommendations about how and when to incorporate readings. We wanted to interweave a couple of poems (as well as a multidenominational blessing) into the ceremony, and were a little flummoxed in thinking about how to make the whole thing flow well—and not feel choppy or scattered. Leslie had terrific recommendations about where to place particular readings; in the end, the ceremony moved along effortlessly. Leslie was so considerate, composed, kind, and thoroughly professional. She went above and beyond in preparing and reviewing the vows—and in finalizing details with us before the rehearsal and the wedding day. (And during the rehearsal, as well as on the wedding day, she made sure that my husband and I were both feeling calm and comfortable.) I loved collaborating with her, and think so highly of the work that she did. I can’t say enough about her dedication to us as clients, her work ethic--and her graceful, thoughtful presence. I found Leslie through all of her glowing online reviews; the reviews are very well deserved.

Leslie made our day truly special and memorable. She is a beautiful person who cares deeply about making the event special and memorable. Everyone at the ceremony complimented us on what an amazing job Leslie did. Thank you, Leslie for everything! Your role in our ceremony will be remembered always!

We got married just last week and I cannot speak highly enough of the amazing job Leslie did as officiant of our wedding! From everything starting from our initial conversations to the day of, Leslie was very responsive and professional in all communications. She drafted wedding vows for us and gave us the opportunity to review before our ceremony. She added so many personal touches from our lives that meant so much to us. We were nervous about some bad weather as our ceremony was outside and she completely put us at ease and suggested a few options for change if needed. If you are looking for someone to lead your ceremony we HIGHLY recommend Leslie!!!!!!! You will not be disappointed and on the contrary beyond amazed!!!

Wonderful service provider. Leslie goes beyond what many people expect.

My husband and I were sooooo fortunate to have found Leslie! The ceremony she performed for us was absolutely heartwarming and perfect for us, it was like she had known us all of our lives. She really took the time to ask questions about our relationship and falling in love - and it really showed in the beautiful and eloquent words she chose for our wedding! Leslie is professional, caring, amazing, and we cannot say enough amazing things about her to the next lucky couple who has the opportunity to have her as their Justice of the Peace. We will absolutely remember every part of our touching ceremony forever.

Leslie is an extremely professional and thoughtful officiant and I would highly recommend her. My fiancé (now husband) and I selected her originally based on the glowing reviews she had received and we were very pleased. In additional to helping us select a lovely local spot for our outdoor elopement, she was extremely diligent in following up with the Town Hall when the signed marriage license failed to arrive in the timeframe expected. She even offered to drive there herself and sign a new copy if necessary. The ceremony she prepared was very touching. All in all it was a great experience!

Leslie was a fantastic JP for us, patient and caring. We asked her to come over to Provincetown and it was no problem for her at all. The ceremony was beautifully written, and she had put in all our requests (in terms of vows and such) . Both we and our wedding party loved the end result. Leslie herself is a great person and we are delighted that we have chosen her as our JP.

Justice Leslie was fantastic. She was able to take some brief notes I sent and create a very personalized service that truly captured our feelings and those of our guests. She was incredibly prompt and her follow up was exceptional. Also she looks the part of a classy, sophisticated officiant. We was a vibrant force and was a very welcome addition to our wedding and really made it a fantastic event - all guests commented "wow, where did you find her?....."did you guys know her before?...etc. Leslie was a true professional and I would whole heartedly recommend to anyone - hurry and lock up Leslie for your date since I am sure she is in high demand.

Living in a southern state, my husband Jon and I wanted to legalize our wedding in his home state of Massachusetts. We were wary of finding someone in what we thought was very short notice, but we quickly found Leslie, who was very mindful, considerate and patient with us. She masterfully crafted each and every one of our wishes into our early morning ceremony—from the peaceful, solitary location decorated with beautiful art, to the personalized vows that she was enthusiastic to write about us. Everything about our ceremony blended with our wants and needs with ease, grace and perfection.
