Judy Thompson is a Connecticut Justice of the Peace, Professional Wedding Officiant, Non-Denominational Minister, Certified Life-Cycle Celebrant®, CT State Chapter Facilitator for the Celebrant Foundation & Institute, and she has performed over 150 weddings, plus dozens of other ceremonies such as Celebrations of Life, Funerals, and Renewals of Vows.
She is a highly-trained professional officiant, known for her ability to create spiritual, non-denominational ceremonies unique to each couple. She is richly schooled in the art of ritual and ceremony from the Celebrant Foundation & Institute, and is a master co-creator of ceremonies that reflect the needs and beliefs of the people they honor. Each ceremony is a one-of-a-kind reflection of personal rites of passage, transitions or celebrations.
Judy earned the coveted Wedding Wire Couples Choice Award for 2020 and 2019 which is granted to officiants who consistently receive five-star ratings. She is also a proud member of Wish Upon a Wedding, granting weddings and vow renewals to couples facing serious illness or life-altering health circumstances.
During this time of social distancing, your current wedding plan might not reflect the ideal vision you coveted for months or even years. Rest assured that small, intimate weddings in a natural setting, favorite spot, or even the courthouse steps provide unexpected meaning and sanctity, providing memories to cherish forever.
Indeed, regardless of the setting, working with couples to infuse their ceremony with meaningful moments is my passion, and with over 150 ceremonies performed, encompassing all genders and sexual orientations and marital ages - not to mention a rich variety of cultural backgrounds and ethnicities - it's also become one of my greatest sources of devotion and joy, as a CT Justice of the Peace.
