About

I am a Halifax-based Justice of the Peace available to be your wedding officiant for ceremonies in Nova Scotia.. I am a very experienced, reliable professional with an extensive career in administrative support, voice work/broadcasting, and event planning. Known for having a keen eye for detail and excellent communication skills. I am a very open-minded people person who makes everyone feel comfortable from the moment they meet me. I am very compassionate and truly feel privileged to perform marriage ceremonies - I believe I am meant to do this. Your ceremony is the continuation of your love story. How it started is part of your story and I officiate the next chapter - marriage.

I want your ceremony to capture who you are as a couple but also as individuals so it is intimate for your family and friends.

I have always loved romance. I married my high school sweetheart John. We had 32 years together until he died unexpectedly at 47. I was left a widow with two daughters. I needed something to help heal my heart. To be a Justice of the Peace is a honour I wear proudly. I have married hundreds of couples and each couple has left a print on my heart. Those prints stay there forever. Words are hard to come by when I am feeling the energy and love of couples as they commit their solemn vows to one another. It is palpable. It is beautiful and special.

I am very lucky and promise you that your ceremony will reflect your personality and encompass your love story.

    Krista is absolutely amazing

    Krista was so nice and I love the way she does her wedding write ups. She makes sure to include your love story which was huge for us. We have been together for 17 years since high school and have 3 kids so we have a huge background to our love story. It was so nice to have it included. And when I was so nervous (trying not to cry) and messed up on some of my vows she just laughed it off with me and we started over that part. I highly recommend her

    Krista is amazing

    From the moment we saw Krista’s bio information in wedding wire, we knew we needed to have her as our wedding officiant. My husband and I are from Manitoba and travelled to Nova Scotia for our elopement. When I spoke with Krista on the phone to make plans for our wedding she was very welcoming and personable and made any concerns about the distance wedding planning disappear. Krista was able to take our wedding ceremony vision and blend it perfectly with some personal touches. Communication and organization for the day of our ceremony was very direct and easy going. We cannot get over how wonderful our wedding ceremony was and how happy we were to have Krista officiate our wedding. We had to change our wedding location and time last minute due to weather complications and Krista was more than willing to work with us with our last minute change. Our little elopement will be a day to remember and cherish forever and Krista was a big part of that. If you are looking for an officiant who makes you feel comfortable and at home, is truly passionate about what she does, Krista is your officiant!

    Such a wonderful wedding officiant!

    Krista was professional, caring and energetic. She kept in touch with us throughout the planning stages right up until the end of the night. She was fabulous, is all I can say! She made us feel comfortable and at ease during the ceremony. She truly loves what she does and it shines in her. I would highly recommend her as your wedding officiant! Thank you Krista! The best!

I know from all the couples I have met that it is challenging to find an officiant/Justice of the Peace who fits with you and have the same vision. You want to be comfortable and enjoy their energy.

I believe it is important to meet and chat and get to know one another a bit so you can decide on whether I may have the honour of officiating your ceremony. I also like to include your full love story into your ceremony but I can explain that further when we meet.
