Justice Leslie Zises is a passionate wedding officiant based out of Chestnut Hill, Massachusetts. My goal is to create a customized ceremony that will be remembered for years to come. I have officiated at intimate gatherings, at private homes, hotels, restaurants, libraries, Boston Publc Gardens and Boston Commons, art and science museums, college and universities, Fenway Park, Spirit of Boston, the Boston Waterfront, and countless locations in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. It would be my pleasure to stand with you on your special day.

I am a detail-oriented Justice and a native of Boston. I have an extensive work background. I have received numerous accolades for leadership skills, and won the WGBH Voted #1 Best Wedding Officiant. Volunteer work is also very important to me, and I have served as a planning chair and co chair for multiple organizations over the last 30 years. Justice Leslie is a member of the Massachusetts Justice of the Peace organization, WeddingWire, WeddingPro, and I am committed to my honored position as officiant. I love to play tennis, visit museums and attend symphony, take long walks, and read.

Incredible experience!

Leslie was so responsive and took a lot of time to get to know us as a couple and customize her ceremony to be delivered as if she had known us for years! She is very flexible and made both of us feel at ease throughout the ceremony. I would highly recommend contacting Leslie if you are looking for a Justice of Peace! Thank you for making our day so special!

Last Minute Elopement

Leslie was very helpful and accommodating despite the short notice. She made the most of her time to get to know us and create a speech that was unique to our love story. I really appreciated her thoughtfulness and positivity :) She made our day feel extra special and highly recommend her to anyone else seeking a Justice of Peace!

A truly amazing experience.

Leslie was wonderful. She made the evening go seamlessly. She arrived early on our wedding day and took the time to talk with us prior to the ceremony to make sure everything was perfect. We felt as if we were being married by a friend rather than someone we barely knew. I can’t say how pleased we were with our decision to have Leslie be such a crucial part of our special day.

It was so nice working with Justice Leslie! Her ceremony was so thoughtful and very personal. Justice Leslie introduced herself upon arrival and was very clear about the cues we needed to start processional and recessional music, she was friendly and easy to work with. We will look forward to the next time we work together!
