Pastor April was such a pleasure to work with! She was so accommodating when we sat with her to go over the ceremony and very quick to get our edits back to us each time. She's always so happy, upbeat, and positive, which is the exact kind of person you could ever ask for to marry you! The day of the wedding she was prompt and prepared. The ceremony went off flawlessly and professionally. Thanks again Pastor April! L&L Lauren & Dan :)

April is AMAZING! My husband first met her at our venue's showcase and insisted that we look into booking with her. We met with April a couple of months prior to our wedding to make our customize ceremony. She really got to know us on a personal level and that made all of the difference. Our ceremony was absolutely perfect. We received compliments from everyone not only on our ceremony but also on April herself! She is a terrific officiant with a personality to match. If you're looking for a beautifully personalized, non boring/cookie-cutter ceremony then look no further!

I would 100% recommend Pastor April (and have done so already) to anyone looking for an officiant. She's super pleasant, responsive, and it is extremely obvious that she loves what she does. The majority of guests at our non-denominational wedding made comments about how lovely the ceremony was and that it was their favorite part, mostly because of Pastor April. She's very flexible and works with you needs, making sure you have the most beautiful, special ceremony you could imagine. Please book her if you can!!!!

We got married on January 21, 2017 and used April as an officiant at our ceremony. April was unbelievable to work with. When we first met her we spent over an hour with her as she got to know us as a couple. We loved that because then we knew our ceremony would be totally personalized. And it was! Throughout the entire wedding, our guests were coming up to us telling us how much they loved the ceremony! We were pleasantly surprised with that because we felt the same! April is so personabale and she was genuinely happy and proud to be there at our wedding. We loved having her and so did our guests! I would highly recommend using April at anyone and everyone's ceremony! She's truly the best!!

Pastor April came recommended by a friend and more than lived up to my expectations. We were being married by a friend whose services were not seen as legal by Suffolk County, so Pastor April met us at our venue the morning of the ceremony and executed the legal part. She was more than accommodating, professional, personable, compassionate and honorable. She made many helpful and creative suggestions for our ceremony and helped to ease the name change process. I whole heartedly recommend her!!!

You will LOVE her!!! My husband and I thought we would have a problem finding someone to marry us this year on New Year's Day, but Pastor Marie April was so accommodating and had no problem at all with that date. I felt an affinity with her during our first phone conversation because she was so warm and friendly... just what you need in an officiant. She's professional and spiritual with just the right amount of humor! She also gives you all information for your name-change after you're married. This lady is a beautiful person, and you will be very happy to have her officiate your wedding.

I am beyond thrilled that I chose Pastor April as my wedding officiant! From start to finish, she was just absolutely AMAZING!! Her personality is magical, she makes you and everyone else smile. She took the time to write our personalized ceremony and it could not have been more perfect. My guests thought it was written so well, and really represented me and my husband in an intimate way. Any questions or concerns I had, April was there to answer them joyfully and quickly. She definitely knows how to put you at ease during what can be a very stressful time! I HIGHLY recommend Pastor April, you will not be disappointed!! Best choice I made!

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)
