Over 1,000 weddings officiated, over 260 reviews and a lifetime of love! Contact me if you want a ceremony that embodies your story!

Being a practicing Justice of the Peace/Wedding Officiant for the State of New Hampshire, since 2004, is an incredible honor and officiating over 1000 ceremonies since then is surreal. Since becoming a JP, I have steadily increased the number of weddings I have performed. I have traveled throughout New Hampshire , Massachusetts, Vermont and Maine. Being an integral part of a couple’s wedding experience is humbling. I love to write, and generally I put an entire ceremony together for a couple as part of our fee arrangement. I encourage couples to write their own vows, but if they would rather I write a reciprocal or non-reciprocal set from a questionnaire I provide every couple - then that is easily accomplished! Tailoring a ceremony specifically to a couple is what I do, unless a couple wants a simple no frills ceremony or perhaps an elopement.

My speciality is writing a ceremony that encompasses a unity piece crafted for each couple. My formula is to get to know my couples so that each and every element is reflective of their journey to marriage and their vision for the future. My speciality is a tree unity, which I have refined over the past 11 years and I have written a unity entitled "There is Always Room For Love., " which is thought provoking. I love a Wine Box Unity, a Wine Blending Unity, a butterfly release, a Knot Unity, a painting/guest book unity or a Time Capsule Unity. Please ask me about them!

If I am not available to officiate for you, consider having a family member or close friend read a ceremony that I custom write for you. Please contact me with any questions on how this can be done.

My fee is based upon the complexity of the ceremony, the venue, the amount of guests, travel time and arranging to be present at a rehearsal and meet and greet. My pricing range is from $200 to $600 generally, which includes travel. Please do not hesitate to call me with questions.

As a NH JP, officiating in MA. requires a waiver form that can be faxed to the Secretary of State’s office. There is no extra charge for this waiver. I've officiated in Topsfield, Newburyport, Holyoke, Cohasset, Wellesley,Templeton, Stow, Manchester-by-the Sea, Greenfield, Chatham, Gloucester, Boston, Salisbury, Tewksbury, Georgetown, Ipswich and Whately! Last year I traveled to Florida to officiate as part of a couple's destination wedding.

I have also officiated in Quechee, Ascutney, Dover, Rockingham and Bellows Falls, Vermont and Saco & York Beach, Maine. Because there is not reciprocity in marriage laws from state to state, some states require more from out-of-state JPs to officiate in their states. Just ask me and I'll tell you what my experience has been.

I've officiated in every county of New Hampshire. Some of the venues I frequent are Hidden Hills, Cathedral of the Pines, The Shattuck, The Bedford Village Inn, LaBelle Winery, Zorvino Vineyards, Keene Country Club, Stonewall Farm, The Grandview, The Woodbound Inn, Searles Castle, The Castleton, and Alyson's Orchard. I look forward to making your wedding a memorable experience.

Jane Rokes made our wedding day perfect!

This past July we had an intimate wedding with family at a private home in Surry, New Hampshire. Since we are out of state residents, we located our wedding officiant, Jane Rokes, on line. She ...
