It was a warm summer day full of sunshine for their wedding at Prestwick Golf Course. As guests made their way to the wedding ceremony site the couple prepared to walk down the aisle.
For their wedding ceremony those shared bits of their love story, celebrating their journey to the aisle and the reasons they chose each other as their partner. They chose beautiful wedding vows to read to each other;
Today, surrounded by all of your loved ones, I choose you to be my husband. I am proud to be your wife and to join my life with yours. I vow to support you, inspire you, and love you always. For as long as we both shall live, I will be by your side–for better or worse, in sickness and health, for richer or poorer. You are my one and only today and every day.
And one of my favorite readings was shared;
To Love Is Not to Possess," James Kavanaugh "To love is not to possess, To own or imprison, Nor to lose one's self in another. Love is to join and separate, To walk alone and together, To find a laughing freedom That lonely isolation does not permit. It is finally to be able To be who we really are No longer clinging in childish dependency Nor docilely living separate lives in silence, It is to be perfectly one's self And perfectly joined in permanent commitment To another—and to one's inner self. Love only endures when it moves like waves, Receding and returning gently or passionately, Or moving lovingly like the tide In the moon's own predictable harmony. Because finally, despite a child's scars Or an adult's deepest wounds, They are openly free to be Who they really are—and always secretly were, In the very core of their being Where true and lasting love can alone abide."

find Justice of the Peace in Clarkston Michigan
Hey, I'm Nichole your local wedding Officiant and I'm here to tell you that Justice of the Peace, Officiant, Celebrant and sometimes Minister are all interchangeable titles for a person who can legally perform your wedding ceremony.
I'm local to Holly, Fenton, Clarkston, Waterford and Pontiac. As a local Justice of the Peace I perform wedding ceremonies for all kinds of weddings. Intimate, elopement, grand weddings, and of course simple sign and go deals as well.
When folks google "Justice of the peace near me" they are often looking for a smaller wedding and sometimes the smallest type, that would be my sign and go, or simple signing.
As your Justice of the Peace I can meet with the two of you, two witnesses and sign your license, ask you if you are here to marry each other and promise to love each other, you say "we are" and boom, you are legally married.
There are many reasons a couple may search for a Justice of the Peace, did you know that many local courthouses no longer perform weddings, or if they do, its once a week and that creates a long backup.
Rest assured my marriage services as your Justice of the Peace are above what any cold courtroom can offer you!
Reach out today to inquire about my Justice of the Peace services:
