    Wedding Savior

    Dale is an extremely professional, responsive, and positive individual. Being able to officiate weddings and having done so in CT, I figured I would be able to in MA without any issues. Unfortunately I was wrong and with only 1 day prior to the wedding, I was stuck and Dale came to the rescue! His expert knowledge of the MA laws pertaining to performing a lawful marriage, he provided a solution to a situation that could have been devastating for the wedding couple! His flexibility allowed us to resolve the issue in a matter of hours rather than days or even weeks! His understanding of the pressures of a wedding can have on couples put everyone at ease and he was able to fulfill the dreams of two very special people without missing a step in the process! If you want to have the best wedding possible, I highly recommend contacting Dale and I know you will not be disappointed! It will be one of the best decisions in your wedding planning you can make! Not to mention the inexpensive cost is well worth the value and then some!

    Wedding day JP

    Dale is so much fun to work with. The first time we spoke to him on the phone, we knew we had to book him. We never spoke to another JP, just Dale. His personality shows, even over the phone. He makes sure that couples can personalize their ceremonies. We did a sand ceremony for our newly blended families. It made the kids feel more involved. Definitely recommend him!!!

    JP Dale D.'s reply:

    So sincerely appreciate the review here Christina. You and Fabio were so great to work with and the weather and view that day were just perfect! Your personal vows were such a great representation of your personalities, and I think everyone there was touched by your words. Thank you for choosing me and for asking me to be a part of your big day!

    BEST JP around!

    Dale is the BEST Justice of the Peace! He has a charismatic presence with an impressive projecting voice that gives your ceremony an excellent presentation.
    He has so much experience and it truly shows. Dale also is organized and excels at paying attention to all the little details. He knew what to check in with us on in preparation as well as everything he needed to instruct the bridal party to do to ensure a seamless ceremony. Even down to how to hold your hands so your photos come out perfectly. These extra efforts were so appreciated and showed his dedication to what he does!

    JP Dale D.'s reply:

    So appreciate the kind words and you taking the time to write the review Danielle! Your ceremony twist and Patrick's selfless act was truly something that I will never forget. Please stay in touch!!!
