About Sacred Dove Celebrant

Judith is a Certified Life Cycle Celebrant, Justice Of the Peace, and Non Denominational Minister for the state of Connecticut, parts of Massachusetts and Rhode Island. She enjoys assisting couples in celebrating their commitment to one another. Her passion is to provide you a ceremony that is absolutely unique, filled with love and laughter, reflecting your wishes and personal style.

Whether your wedding will be extravagant, intimate, or slightly unconventional, spritual or religious based, Judy uses a creative approach to develop something truly memorable for all couples, meaning all genders and orientations, all ages, and at all venues from elegant ballrooms, a tree by the river or in her gardens.

She enjoys hearing about how you imagine your ceremony and then creating your vision so the ceremony comes to life, from the most simple, classic and poignant ritual of union, to one filled with stories and laughter so that it touches your heart and makes your wedding more memorable.

If needed, you will receive a rehearsal to ensure that the ceremony flows with ease. I will reach out to and work with your wedding coordinator, photographer, and DJ or musicians because when everyone has an understanding of all that the ceremony entails. And I want your wedding day to be a stress free as possible.

Let's have a conversation, because that's the only way you'll know if I'm the right person to officiate your wedding. It should be based on getting to know each other rather than just words in an ad or a website.

    We could not have planned a better day!

    Sacred Dove Celebrant/Judy Thompson was dedicated to making our daughter's wedding dreams come true. She is a truly caring professional who will do all she can to ensure your ceremony goes just as planned. She traveled out-of-state, the day after a major hurricane, to be with us! She is dedicated to her couples. Judy is intuitive, and knows how to bring out the best in people. She was an asset to our day.
