Pastor Marie was absolutely phenomenal! Many of our guests commented on how lovely she was and that she made it seem as if she had known us for years! we met with her one evening and she got to know us a little and asked us some questions on what type of ceremony we would like and within 24 hours she emailed me a 17 page document outlining our ceremony with specific personalized aspects as well as different choices of readings and prayers. She was very laid back and non stressing which is so important during such a stressful time. I would highly recommend her and look forward to using her services in the future for baby blessings etc.

Just got married last weekend with April as our officiant and she was completely wonderful. Will start by saying that she met with us months prior to the ceremony to interview us and get a feel for the type of ceremony that we wanted to have. She wrote us a draft during this which we loved before she even asked for us to commit to having her officiate our wedding ceremony. We hired her on the spot and she was completely helpful and thorough at helping us get through our ceremony and making it very unique. Correspondence amongst us was very easy and she was readily available through all the revisions of our ceremony and vows. I had several compliments after the ceremony on how great everything was and how it was very much in tune with us and our relationship. Thanks so much April!

We could not have been happier with the services Rev. April provided. From our first meeting until the moment we were married, she made everything fun and easy. Our ceremony was beautiful but most importantly it was very much us. We would recommend Rev. April over and over again. She is very professional and truly a wonderful person.

April does an amazing job! She is truly a pleasure to work with! I thoroughly recommend sitting down with her to work on personalizing your ceremony.

After the ceremony and during the reception our wedding guests expressed to my husband and I how "great" and how "wonderful" our officiant was and were inquiring "where did I find her?"

We were very fortunate and blessed to have found April and we would recommend her to anyone and everyone looking for the perfect wedding officiant. =)

April was amazing. She responded quickly to all of our questions, was wonderful to work with and was very helpful the entire time. We had about a dozen guests come up to us and say how much they enjoyed the ceremony.

April officiated our wedding ceremony, and I could not be happier about working with her. From the first time we met her, I got the strong sense that she would do a great job capturing who my husband and I am as a couple during our ceremony. We didn't want a religious ceremony, but still wanted it to be very special, reverent, and full of emotion - and April helped us get exactly that. She started by interviewing us for about 2 hours, wrote a full first draft of the ceremony which we then added our edits to. There wasn't all that much back-and-forth. April was totally ok with all of our changes and very helpful answering all questions. She even helped guide us in how to get the marriage license, name-change info, etc.

As we got closer to the wedding, she checked in consistently and helped keep this overwhelmed bride on track. The day-of, she was there on time and totally rocked the ceremony. We got so many compliments from our guests on how our ceremony was the most unique and meaningful they'd ever seen - and I know so much of that was because of April. I highly recommend her for your wedding ceremony!

Pastor April was a pleasure to work with. From the moment my husband and I met her, we knew she would be a perfect fit for our wedding. She is warm and makes you feel comfortable being in her presence. Pastor April helped personalize our wedding ceremony and it was everything we wanted. We were both raised Catholic and my mother in particular was very disappointed at first that we were not getting married in the church... she was more than pleased with the ceremony that Pastor April officiated!!!! Our guests are still telling us how much they enjoyed our ceremony. It was just an amazing experience all around!

Part of what makes for a good ceremony is your guests being able to hear you. My system is all wireless and the mic is smaller than my pinky nail. No big turkey leg of a microphone in my couple's pictures! (saves you $250 - $300)
