About

Delighted and honored to have been awarded Bride's Choice Awards for 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, and the Couple's Choice Award for 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018, 2019, 2020, 2021 and most recently 2022! I have also received Market Survey of America's Best of the Best for the greater Keene Area, 2013 and 2015 and Keene Sentinel Readers' Choice 1st place awards for best Wedding Officiant for eight years running. I was featured in the 2018 Keene Sentinel Bridal Magazine and the 2021 Magazine. I had the privilege of being a featured speaker in 2021 at a virtual JP Conference in Connecticut.

Over 1,300 weddings and vow renewals officiated, over 320 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 1300 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鈥檚 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. 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 ceremony 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 unity that resonates for each couple, several that I have refined over the past 18 years including a painting unity, tree unity, or wine box unity.

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鈥檚 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! I also 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. Venues I frequent are: Hidden Hills, Cathedral of the Pines, The Bedford Village Inn, LaBelle Winery, Zorvino Vineyards, Keene Country Club, Stonewall Farm, The Grandview, The Woodbound Inn, Searles Castle, The Castleton, Allrose Farm, Stone Garden, Colby Hill Inn, Alyson's Orchard, The Barn on the Pemi, and Newfound Lake Inn. I am excited to be heading to Strawberry Banke this year. I look forward to making your wedding a memorable experience.

    We love Jane!

    Jane was so amazing to work with. The ceremony she wrote for us was absolutely beautiful and she took the time to get to know us so what she wrote was so personal and thoughtful and a great representation of our life together. She was easy to talk to, quick to answer questions, and incorporated everything we wanted to make sure we had the Christmas ceremony of our dreams! Can鈥檛 say enough good things about Jane. We love you!

    Jane E. Rokes, NH Justice of the Peace / Wedding Officiant's reply:

    Hidden Hills was the venue for Abbie and David's gorgeous December nuptials - family first for this beautiful couple - can't wait to see what the future holds for them. Christmas will never be the same for them!

    Tylah and Greg married at Stonewall Farm, a gorgeous venue in Keene, NH, and the same spot Tylah attended camp as a child. It was a black and white wedding - very classy! They included their dog in the ceremony as their ring bearer - so perfect - every detail!

    Justice of Peace

    Jane was amazing and we are so glad that she was a part of our special day. She was recommended to us by a friend and during the time of our engagement she really went out of her way to get to know us. She continued to check in during the wedding planning and made sure to add personal details. The ceremony was exactly what we wanted and she even dressed to match our wedding party! Jane has continued to stayed in touch with us on Facebook and has become a friend of ours. We would recommend Jane to anyone getting married. She was great!

    Jane E. Rokes, NH Justice of the Peace / Wedding Officiant's reply:

    The Barn on the Pemi in Plymouth was the venue where Shannen and Knox tied the knot. Just loved standing with them as they shared their vows and exchanged rings - Glad that we are friends now based on our incredible working relationship. Shannen was a gorgeous bride and it showed in Knox's face when he saw her start down the aisle. Perfection!
