“Bridal Center JP” (www.andoverjp.com) started out with two Andover-based Justices of the Peace: Michael Capozzi and Greg Landry. Both Justices are commissioned by the State of Massachusetts and authorized to perform weddings anywhere in the Commonwealth. With the addition of Justice of the Peace/Attorney Justin Paré, who is commissioned as a JP in New Hampshire, we now offer our ceremony services in Southern New Hampshire at no additional cost. Justice Justin is also able to officiate anywhere in Massachusetts in the event that Justice Michael and Justice Greg are already booked or are unavailable on your wedding date.
We specialize in personalized “Custom Ceremonies”, which we’ll create together utilizing our unique template of ceremony choices and personalized options designed to help you craft a deeply meaningful ceremony that you will be proud to share with your family, loved ones and friends. Best of all, every word we’ll say is subject to your approval.
We can do traditional or same-gender; non-religious, religious or mixed religions. We respect your wishes and don’t impose any limitations or rules on photographers or videographers you have hired. We will contact your ceremony music (DJ, Musicians etc) in advance to go over musical cues for a flawless processional and recessional. We also coordinate all the details with the event planner or function host/hostess at your venue.
We also offer simple, “pre-written” Civil Ceremonies… held in our Andover office by appointment (it’s legal, short & sweet… all you will need is a valid Massachusetts marriage license).
Our office is located at 63 Park Street (2nd floor) in Andover, MA, by appointment.
Justice Michael E. Capozzi has done weddings since 1973. Long before he became a JP, Michael was a professional musician and played at hundreds of weddings between 1973 and 1996. In 1996 he switched from playing keyboards to spinning CDs and continued as a full-time Wedding DJ (as Michael Edwards). Performing weddings as a DJ from 1996 to 2014, Michael carefully observed all of the different officiants at hundreds of ceremonies. It was a unique “training” opportunity that few other JPs ever get… attending hundreds of weddings prior to being an officiant… just to compile a list of all the most meaningful, heartfelt options for wedding vows, ring exchanges, readings, family traditions and special moments… and then taking the time to create a fun and easy way for engaged couples to select, personalize and incorporate their favorite choices as a custom-created ceremony that is tailored to their needs and beliefs. In 2016, Justice Michael retired from the musical entertainment industry and he now devotes full time to his JP clients and his family.
Justice Greg Landry has been officiating weddings for over 10 years. In that time, he has worked to make every marriage ceremony meaningful and memorable for each couple he has the pleasure of meeting.
Reviews from our past couples consistently rave about his warm and friendly personality and about how he’s kept them on track throughout the process. His calming demeanor is key when nerves are somewhat tattered on the wedding day.
No stranger to public speaking and managing important responsibilities, by day, Greg is the Principal of a highly-regarded elementary school in North Andover. He is a Lowell native who has lived in Andover for the past 14 years with his wife and their two teenage children.
A perfect fit for Bridal Center JP, Justice Greg shares our philosophy of exceptional customer service and attention to detail. He always sees to it that each wedding ceremony is unique and crafted to reflect the personalities and preferences of the couple.
Justice Justin R. Paré, Esq. a commissioned Justice of the Peace in New Hampshire, is also an attorney licensed to practice law in both New Hampshire and Massachusetts. Justice Justin is available to officiate weddings anywhere in New Hampshire and Massachusetts. After taking his oath as a JP, word spread quickly and within weeks, he was booking local weddings on a regular basis. Justice Justin truly enjoys performing weddings and takes pride in making the most important day in a couple’s life more special and meaningful. This dedication to his clients makes “JP the JP” a great addition to our team of professional officiants.
Justin has been engaged in various public speaking roles for over 20 years and as a JP, he expertly combines a polished, professional approach with a caring, personal touch. Past couples have applauded his willingness to go the extra mile to tailor their ceremonies according to their wishes. Couples have said that his calm, sincere officiating style and insightful suggestions in helping them create their custom ceremonies have really helped make their special day complete… often drawing compliments like “perfect” and “absolutely great”!
A native of Massachusetts who also lived in New York for 13 years, Justin is now happily settled in Windham, NH with his pediatrician wife, four wonderful children and their pet beagle!
