Meet Becky & Scott

Welcome to JP by the Sea!

We are so happy that you found our page. A little about us…

We are a happily married couple from the southeastern Connecticut shoreline that loves to perform ceremonies…. you guessed it… by the sea! We are registered CT Justices of the Peace and Interfaith Ministers serving Connecticut and Rhode Island. It is truly our honor and joy to share your love story and to be part of the beautiful energy of your day.

Our business story began with a simple question, “What if someday was right now?” We had been officiating weddings and vow renewals for friends and family for years and had always discussed creating a wedding officiant business “someday”. That incredible moment that a couple says “I do” is packed with so much love, happiness and joy. We were absolutely hooked after our first ceremony and knew that we wanted to work with couples to share their love story in the most unique and beautiful way possible. Fate intervened in early 2020, when we received a large volume of calls from our town’s Justice of the Peace listing. Heartbroken couples who had their weddings cancelled or rescheduled due to COVID restrictions were choosing to elope. We performed many elopements during that time and got very creative to make the experience as special as possible for our couples. Our intent was to create a day they would cherish for the rest of their lives. We performed ceremonies anywhere we were allowed to at the time; parks, pavilions, backyards, outdoor restaurants but most were performed at the location we love most, on the beaches of Connecticut and Rhode Island.

Our wonderful couples did not hesitate to start their lives together when plans changed. Their love inspired us not to wait one more moment for our “someday” to begin and JP by the Sea, LLC was born.

Our business will always be a love letter to the couples that inspired its creation as well as those that continue to inspire us every day.

With Love and Gratitude,

Becky & Scott

Becky brings her past experience as an event planner, both professionally and personally, to you with great joy. Her true passion is bringing people together for happy events to celebrate their lives in meaningful and creative ways. Becky’s ceremony style is vivacious, romantic with a dash of warm humor. This work is very close to her heart. She is the primary business contact and lead author of all ceremonies. When you meet her, you will feel that contagious, joyful energy and know that your day is in beautiful hands.

Scott is a true romantic at heart. He believes in the power of love and the never-ending miracle of how couples find each other in this great, big world. It is his greatest privilege to be present when a couple commits their lives together forever. His ceremony style is a bit more formal, very heartfelt and sometimes contains a comical “over the glasses” look that our couples love! His charm and wit will put any wedding nerves at ease, and he lives for the candid moments of your day (as pictured above).

Becky and Scott’s ceremonies are very endearing and engaging, and the number #1 remark that they will never tire of hearing from wedding guests, “Are you a good friend of the couple? You seem to know them so well!”

When they aren’t performing weddings, you will find them walking their sweet dog Bella or hanging out at the beach, cooking together at home, listening to Scott’s weird music selection until Becky eventually changes to R&B, random date nights or just being total homebodies. They laugh a lot and find joy in the simple things in life.

They both know that there is nothing sweeter in this world than working with your best friend to help other couples start their lives together.
