Your wedding deserves a ceremony as unique & extraordinary as the people involved. It is my pleasure & commitment to make sure all of your dreams about your wedding ceremony are realized. Working together, we will learn what is important to you as a couple. Using these personal experiences, I craft a special one of a kind personal wedding ceremony that honors and focuses on the union and love between you and your partner.

I honor all ceremonial traditions – non-denominational, spiritual, religious, interfaith or civil – and can incorporate any family customs, meaningful rituals, songs, and passage readings into your wedding ceremony. AND you have 100% approval over your ceremony script - as the essential belief of working with a Celebrant is that you, the couple, "own" your ceremony. My pursuit as your Wedding Officiant is to help you, the couple, create the wedding day of your dreams. I don't have any strict rules or guidelines ,and encourage my couples to have fun and be as creative as they'd like! I am also very easy to work with and a lot of fun!

I would be honored to be your Minister & Celebrant and guide you along this amazing journey. Read less

April was so great and we were lucky to book her for our wedding! I'm Jewish and my husband is Catholic and we wanted to incorporate traditions from both cultures into the ceremony without making it religious. Not only was April so open to this but she had provided us with a ton of suggestions on things we can do to personalize the ceremony. We also love that she gave us homework. Not only was it a great exercise for April to learn about us as a couple and incorporate it in the ceremony, but it was a lovely way to learn how my husband and I feel about each other that we don't always share. We also appreciated that we get to edit the final draft of the ceremony and we can adjust how we like. It was incredibly personal and for a bride and groom that isn't sappy, we both felt very emotional during the ceremony. I also loved that April encouraged us to write our own vows and I'm so happy we were talked into it! Great officiant!

Thank you to April Beer for a fantastic wedding ceremony that we will never forget! My wife and I are interfaith and we were looking for a non-religious ceremony that would still be meaningful and memorable. April worked with us closely to find just the right balance of meaning, sentimentality, humor, etc. for our ceremony. She really cared about getting the tone just right for us. What set her apart from others was her attitude that a wedding ceremony should be unique, personalized, creative, and engaging, rather than just going through the motions of formality. She took the time to meet with us for hours to learn about us as a couple (and as individuals), and I felt like she truly understood our story and what mattered to us. So when she tells "your story" at the ceremony, its more than just reciting words from a page. As far as logistics, we had no issues. April was always prompt, talked us through the marriage paperwork, ran us through a thorough rehearsal, provided us with sample readings and vows, etc. Again, wonderful ceremony and highly recommended.

April went above and beyond to make our ceremony absolutely perfect! My parents (Catholics) wanted a priest (my fiancé and I are not religious) and even they could not stop talking about what a beautiful ceremony it was! April will get to know you both, know your story and do exactly everything you ask. There wasn't a dry eye in the place!

I came across a video of April performing a wedding ceremony while looking through videos from a prospective videographer. I immediately fell in love with her and knew I had to find out her contact information. From our initial phone conversation, I knew that she was exactly what I was looking for. Our first initial meeting only solidified this. April was so responsive to any questions that I had and truly took the time to get to know my fiancé and I prior to the wedding. She emphasized how our wedding ceremony would be about us as a couple and our love story, which was so important to me. On the day of my wedding, after the ceremony, I had so many people come over to me and compliment me on the ceremony. They told me it was the most beautiful ceremony that they had ever seen and LOVED that it was so focused on us. Our wedding was one month ago and I wish I would go back and relive the ceremony again. It was truly the most amazing part of the entire day. April did a fantastic job.

A bonus, her husband took amazing pictures during the ceremony that she sent to me!

I highly recommend her to anyone who wants a truly memorable wedding ceremony customized to the couple themselves. My husband and I couldn't be happier.

I hope our paths cross one day with her again. She is a special human being.

April was the icing on my wedding cake. She's so good, I would have her marry us twice. Let me start by saying, we are an offbeat couple- spiritual but not religious with a wicked sense of humor. Our vision of our ceremony was steeped with ritual, tradition and personal reflection. April was able to take all of our woo-woo notions and organize them into a meaningful, interesting and gorgeous ceremony. Her knowledge of tradition and ability to intemperate our wishes was wonderful. Every attention to detail on her part was evident and it was so fun filling out her questionnaires. It felt great to work with someone who was really interested in getting to know us as a couple and as individuals. All of our guests complemented our ceremony, it was so unique and so "us". April gets four thumbs up.

April really made our ceremony special. She told our story perfectly and really captured who we are as a couple. I had so many guests come up to me and say that this was the best ceremony they have ever been to because it wasn't boring. That was my main this for my ceremony, I didn't want it to be stuffy and the same old thing that everyone always has. April really made our ceremony unique and perfect. She was helpful throughout our whole process and even helped me after our wedding with our marriage license.

We love April!! We knew from the minute we met her, we wanted her to officiate our wedding ceremony. Her quality of service is wonderful. She really made the effort in getting to know us before hand and makes sure our vision is what she sees and performs. We loved our ceremony more than we did our reception. It was very intimate, funny, serious and loving, it was everything we were expecting and more! There was not a dry eye in the room. Our guests were blown away; we received so many great compliments on our heartfelt ceremony. April is incredibly patient and fun to work with. The entire experience from beginning to end was a breeze. She took care of filing our marriage license while we were on our honeymoon and emailed us to let us know where to pick it up. She is very efficient! When we renew our vows, April is the first person we will contact. We highly recommend April Beer to become your officiant. She was a doll to work with!
