We are so happy with Apirl's service! One of the best part in our wedding was the ceremony. Our ceremony was simple but yet so prefect. Apirl'd done an amazing job! Her voice and the way she talked was so touching and professional! She walked you thought and followed up all the detail before the wedding. I highly recommend using her as your officiant! you will love her!

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 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!

Pastor April gave us the most perfect ceremony possible. Everything in our hearts, she voiced for all of our loved ones. She spoke clearly and eloquently and made our ceremony so special for us. We were able to incorporate both of our traditions, religions and ideas into one beautiful cohesive piece.

Our wedding wouldn't have been the same without the work that April put in. We met with her as a couple for over an hour months before the wedding so she could get to know us and gather material for our ceremony (which she sent to us via email so we could edit as we saw fit). We were able to customize every word if we chose too.

Additionally, in addition to acting as our officiant, she also provided all of the information for obtaining our marriage license and was readily available for all of the questions that we had.

April is professional, friendly and was a pleasure to work with . We definitely would recommend April to our friends and family.

Pastor April Gismondi was FANTASTIC!! She married our friends a few years ago, so when we started looking for someone to marry us, she was on the top of the list. Pastor April was kind, professional, and always willing to help. She created a custom ceremony for us that focused on our relationship and the qualities we love most about each other. I had an overwhelming amount of guests come to my husband and I to tell us that it was one of the most beautiful ceremonies they have been to. She provided my "dream" ceremony, the kind you see in movies that make you really appreciate love. There was not a dry eye at the ceremony!! She is the best!!

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)
