Selecting your officiant as a very personal matter--almost as personal as selecting your life's partner! The person you choose to give your union the legal and spiritual blessing it deserves should be carefully considered. Certainly, local clergy and Town Justices are readily available, but local clergy are often reluctant to officiate at services not held in a house of worship--a bit of an issue if you dreamed of a garden, vineyard or beach wedding--and Justices and other Town Marriage Officers often don't provide spiritual blessing so many bridal couples wish to have. In that case, an non-denominational spiritual officiant such as listed below may fit the bill just perfectly.

Justices of the Peace & Marriage Officers

If a Justice of the Peace or Town Marriage Officer is what you had in mind, contact the Town Clerk in one of our 5 East End Towns for more information and to be directed to a Judge. On eastern Long Island you may visit any of the Town Clerks in the five east end Towns(most have weekend hours during the summer season). Click on the title above for a directory of Town Clerks.
