Justice of the Peace Mike Backer
About The Business
Choosing your Officiant is a very important decision. I offer a free consultation with you to discuss your ceremony requirements. Customizing your ceremony is my specialty. Whether it’s working with you to prepare your ceremony or assisting with the rehearsal, providing personalized attention is something you can expect. Of course, you are free to write your own vows and ceremony and I would still be honored and happy to be your Officiant. I am quite comfortable officiating for inter-faith and same sex marriages as well as overseeing and preparing vow renewals. My approach and philosophy is to be adaptable. I tell all my couples, “It’s your ceremony…” I will do my best to tailor it to your requirements and wishes.
As a Justice of the Peace for the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, I am authorized to Officiate anywhere within the Commonwealth, including off shore within state limits. Authorization to perform ceremonies in New Hampshire and other states can be obtained.
I served as the President of the Massachusetts Justices of the Peace Association for 4 years and currently a member its Executive Board. I am honored to have been the recipient of the WeddingWire Bride’s Choice Award, www.weddingwire.com, for the past four consecutive years, as well as the Wedding Industry Experts, 2012 Award, www.weddingindustryexperts.com: Winner: Best Celebrant – Boston and Winner: Best Celebrant – Massachusetts.
