Background

 

Justice of the Peace


When couples decide to use my services as a Justice of the Peace, I begin by emailing samples of ceremonies that I have written to help them start thinking about what they might want included as part of their ceremony.  I make sure each couple has the opportunity to provide as much input they wish for their ceremony.  The ceremony can be short and simple, or creative and unique.  We include any words couples like to use and exclude any words they do not wish said.  Usually couples have something special they want to share when it comes to vows, so I encourage them to write their own.  However, I do have vows already written if couples prefer not to write their own.  With the input couples give me, I use this as a starting point for creating their ceremony.  I remind each couple, this is their ceremony, so we will create it including any traditions, readings or family members they wish to include.  If couples choose not to provide input, that’s OK too, but I make sure everyone has the opportunity to make this ceremony their own. 


I travel throughout Vermont to officiate weddings at any location.

My partner Willie Docto and I live in Duxbury, Vermont and co-own the award winning Moose Meadow Lodge, an Adirondack style log home Bed & Breakfast nestled on 86 seclude acres in the Green Mountains.

Willie and I met in 1992 at a log home B&B in West Virginia and have stayed at many B&Bs and log lodges throughout our travels.  In 1996, I was transferred to Vermont from Washington DC with IBM.  This allowed us the opportunity to pursue our dream of owning a B&B. We bought a single-family home on 86 acres, and after a couple of years of research, planning and renovating, we opened the Moose Meadow Lodge in October of 1998.

Willie and I were named Vermont's "B&B INNKEEPERS OF THE YEAR" in 2005 by the Vermont Lodging & Restaurant Association.

I am now a former IBM computer systems architect and technical trainer. I am an accomplished woodworker who created many of the furnishings and rustic decorations in our Lodge. My twig furniture and other works are made with wood from the property. My creations have been commissioned by people from as far as Maryland and Puerto Rico.

When time allows I work for a local touring company as their tour manager throughout New England.

In addition to being elected as Justice of the Peace I am also a member of the Duxbury Cemetery Commission.

I wanted to thank you for performing our wedding ceremony!  You did a wonderful job including wiping the sweat as it was dripping off Jeff’s forehead!  I loved that you were so comfortable as you spoke and everything you said came from the heart!  Thank you for including “our story” into the ceremony as well.  It really made our day that much more special.  Thanks for a great job. 


With love from your married couple...  Jill and Jeff



We send our heartfelt thanks for all you did to make our daughter Jennifer’s wedding to Keith a breath taking beautiful and truly memorable honoring of their love.  Your warmth to us, joining us as we witnessed & celebrated their marriage and honoring it as you did Greg, with such meaning and warmth to your words.  As her parents, it was a wonderful gift to us that we’ll never forget.    The joy of the day remains captured in the photographs as we look at the beautiful smile of Jennifer’s face as she stands with Keith and Greg in front of the old maple tree. 


Thank you.

Kathy & Tom
