Carol is the Best JP ever!!!!

Carol Merletti is hands down the best JP to work with. From the first time I called her , she spent about 1 hour on the phone with me walking me through the whole marriage process. We hadn’t been to a lot of weddings and my wife and I were very nervous about not knowing what to do prior to the wedding in regards to paperwork , licensing etc. Carol did a step by step while I took notes.
Carol told me from the start that if I wanted to change the Vows she sent or customize it I should. She made sure I had exactly what I wanted. The night before the wedding at 10pm
She was up late going back and forth to make them just perfect for us.
She was also awesome on the day of the wedding making sure everyone in the wedding knew where to walk and when.
I hope I never have to use Carols services again , but I know she will forever be in the photos on our special day, and we made a great Friend. I would definitely recommend Wedding of your Desire!!!

Great Experience

Carol was excellent! From the very first time I reached out to her to the very end she was on point. She makes it very clear when she is available and her response time is prompt and she's very professional. My family even loved her. I would definitely recommend her if you're looking for a justice of the peace to officiate your wedding.
