    We didn't make it easy, but Steven did!

    We reached out on short notice (36 hours) during a blizzard, and Steven still followed up right away with a call to talk through the process of working with a JP and getting a license in NH broadly, and our 11th hour 2020 marriage plan specifically. He passed zero judgement on our last-minute decision, and was willing to meet us at our home for a small, outdoor ceremony. In our brief time together - on our initial call, even - Steven picked up on our senses of humor and what was most important to us, and he brought that to the ceremony and the vows. We were overwhelmed at the thought of writing our own (again, short notice) and Steve heard our preferences and translated them into vows that were perfectly tailored and felt perfectly natural to us. We'll cherish those moments, and Steve's clear care and humor in meeting us where we were and encouraging us to embrace our own unique journey. We can't recommend Steven enough as an officiant - he is personable, caring, calming, flexible, and funny to boot. I'm certain he would be terrific with a larger audience, but with just the three of us perched in a snow bank, he made sure we had a spot with lovely scenery and favorable sunlight, and snapped photos for us, too. Thank you, for everything! 11 stars out of 10!

    Dear Kate & Jack: Shhhh - I won't tell anyone you got married! When the time is right, you can do that yourselves … but, in the meanwhile, enjoy this Christmas and New Years as newlyweds nonetheless! Thank you so much for reaching out to me, and for your very lovely words - I was delighted to meet you both and experience this very special time - and in such a wonderful, snowy setting! I hope you have many, many happy years in your mountain retreat - good luck with the renovations, and stay well! Kind regards, Steve
