My name is Melvin D. Baran. I have been a Justice of the Peace for over 20 years and have performed over 900 weddings. Performing weddings began as a hobby for me, but over the years it has become a passion that I hope will last for many years to come.

My wedding ceremonies are designed with dignity, warmth, and to fulfill your requests and dreams. My ultimate goal is that the Bride & Groom remember how special their wedding day was. In designing each wedding ceremony, I am flexible, accommodating, and most of all receptive to the wishes of the Bride & Groom.

I have performed all types of weddings including CIVIL, TRADITIONAL, RELIGIOUS, and RE-AFFIRMATION services. Personalized services of all types are available at your request. I am a strong supporter of the Gay Marriage Ruling in Massachusetts and have performed numerous same sex marriages and commitment ceremonies over the years.

Weddings can be performed at my home, your home or any destination of your choice. As a Justice of the Peace, I am licensed to perform marriages in Massachusetts and New Hampshire.
