  • We were looking for a JP to quickly conduct our legal paperwork/marriage prior to our destination wedding next month. Steve responded immediately and was flexible to fit us in within a few days. We met with him prior and to our surprise he put in the effort to know us and our story. This became much more meaningful than we anticipated and we are so grateful he treated it with the love and respect a “just” legal wedding deserved. Our ceremony was unique, special, and humorous all thanks to Steve. He did an awesome job and we highly recommend him !

    Good evening Cari (and Jon)! I couldn't have said it better - really, though - your words mean so much! The special intimate ceremony on Friday, with just your mother-in-law and sister-in-law present, was meaningful to me, as well. Thank you both for reaching out and honoring me with the privilege of serving as your officiant ... and safe travels to Costa Rica for your destination wedding to follow! Kind regards, Steve
