Free wedding event for valentines in Mistick

February 22, 2013 by  

Justice of the Peace Marie Tyler Wiley gave many couples a great surprise this Valentine’s Day, but it was not a box of chocolates or a Teddy Bear. Wiley has been offering free weddings on Valentine’s Day for over five years, and her excitement for the event (and for newlyweds) has never ceased.

This year at the historical Olde Mistick Village in New London County, several couples were honored by Wiley with a free ceremony. Wiley says of her own wedding 20 years ago:

“It was completely unromantic so I live vicariously through my couples. I give them the wedding I always wanted.”

Marie Tyler Wiley’s good deeds have affected many, including the lives of newlyweds Diane and Carlos Hernandez who were married this Valentine’s Day under Wiley’s care.

Wiley understands that each couple is unique, and offers five different personalized ceremonies to choose from during her event. Her goal is always to give new couples just starting out a great opportunity – not to mention a little bit of a break.

Those in many areas of New London County such as Norwich, Stonington, and Groton may not be familiar with Wiley’s generous offer, and she hopes to have the opportunity to help many more couples marry next February. In order to advertise next year’s event, Wiley might consider using printing companies, flyer printing, or business card printing services to spread the word about her services both on Valentine’s Day and throughout the year.
