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

We were so fortunate to have April as the Celebrant for our wedding. April was incredibly thoughtful and thorough about the content of our ceremony. She was really about to capture the spirit of our relationship - this was done by being genuinely interested in learning about us and making sure all of the details were correct. She takes no liberties on her wording and always checked for our approval. As a couple who was somewhat unsure of what elements we wanted to have in our ceremony, we could not have been more thrilled that April was fully prepared with ideas and suggestions and explained her interpretation of the meaning of each piece. She really helped us craft the perfect ceremony; spirited, warm and loving. April was also able to walk us through the administrative pieces of getting the license, certificate, etc. Highly highly recommended!

Once I talked to April on the phone, I knew she would be our officiant or our "Rev of Love"! She totally put me at ease from the first phone call and just made me feel comfortable, which was such an important factor since, no pressure, she'd be the one marrying us! From the first phone call to the face-to-face meetings to the email communication, April was a joy to work with. She made the whole process easy and fun! In essence, April was the narrator of our marriage and wrote a beautiful love story that fit us so well. She gave us a warm, loving, fun and personalized ceremony which was exactly what we wanted! She writes the story based on your story and you have the ability to add, edit or change anything you'd like. Since we didn't write our own vows, she gave us so many examples and options of vows that worked beautifully. We could not have been happier with how everything turned out. We love you April!

April is such a special person and a wonderful officiant. We found her by chance on weddingwire but it was really meant to be! She totally "got us" and catered our ceremony exactly how we wanted it. We met with her in person and felt a connection and through the months were in touch on skype and email. She is always very responsive and provides all the answers to the millions of questions you may have. She incorporates anything you may want to include, no matter how non traditional or unusual. Besides being our officiant, April was a friend through some hard times leading up to the wedding. She is an ear to listen and a friend to give you guidance. The day of the wedding April kept everyone calm and organized. People were raving about how special and personal our ceremony was. They said it really was the best they have ever been to! I highly recommend April to oversee your special day of love!

April did a great job at our wedding!! Everyone loved our ceremony; our guests were all saying how beautiful it was! I think it is important to have a ceremony that fits the personality of the bride and the groom, and April delivered a ceremony that was spot on. April also helps guide you through applying for your marriage license and then obtaining the certified copy of it afterwards, as well as changing your last name if you wish, which is great because it is one less thing you have to worry about figuring out yourself. We are very happy we chose April to do our ceremony; we could not have asked for a better wedding officiant!

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.
