What can I say? We LOVE Pastor April. She was so amazing to work with and made the seemingly daunting process of creating our ceremony another memory to cherish. From our first meeting to the big day and every step in between Pastor April truly created an amazing experience for us. She has such talent and a way with words, we were blown away by what she put together simply from having a conversation with her. I look forward to working with Pastor April in the future, she is a blessing!!

April was AMAZING. She was kind, sweet, and exactly what we were looking for. She was able to perform just the right ceremony for us (non-religious with a hint of Jewish customs to satisfy the family). We are so grateful that she was the one to marry us. Her professionalism and care shine through in her email and phone exchanges with her. She even agreed to meet with us right before the holidays in December.. in the snow, so that we could have a meet and greet with her!! She is absolutely the person you want to officiate your wedding! Matt and I can not thank you enough!!

I can't say enough GREAT things about Reverend April! She was amazing from the start. Even though we had only communicated via email as my husband and I were from out of town, she made the whole process run smoothly for us. She is just an amazingly sweet lady and we were fortunate enough to have her wed us. Our first meeting in person was actually the day of, and she made sure to come to the bridal suite to introduce herself and give me a heartwarming hug. Thank you so much for your amazing service. It was such a pleasure dealing with you.

April was everything my Husband and I wanted and more! Everyone responded so joyfully to her animated story telling and the warmth and love in her voice. She was beyond accommodating and professional, yet she had this aura about her that made you feel like she has been in your family for years. I can't thank her enough for making our day so special and I think everyone should have her officiate their wedding,

Pastor April was simply amazing. She was always quick with responding to emails and was very patient with me. Everyone knows a bride has 101 things on her mind at one time. While I was running late, Pastor April was not lol. The ceremony was great and she gave great examples so you will have no problem arranging your ceremony.

Pastor April thank you for such an amazing and memorable sermon. You truly gave us a ceremony that we can look back on and cherish forever. From the first day we met, Pastor April was so kind and really took the time out to learn about my husband and I as individuals and as a couple. She helped us create the ceremony of our dreams. The first encounter was personable and easy going. Pastor April assured us that we could contact her with any questions without worry and she made the process stress free. She is genuinely a likable and kindhearted individual. Her smile and calming presence during the ceremony was well appreciated because she helped calm our nerves. Pastor April spoke our words of love so eloquently and with compassion. After the ceremony was completed and after the wedding was over, our friends and family couldn't stop talking about the ceremony. They expressed feeling emotional and touched by the words spoken by Pastor April and how she conveyed the love my husband and I feel for each other. April also made the process of applying for the marriage certificate and how to change my last name by providing us with all of the links and information after our wedding. This made the process smooth and I didn't have too many questions because of this. She also provided tracking for our marriage license which was sent out promptly after our ceremony. Pastor April, thank you so much for a wonderful and memorable ceremony, it will live in our hearts forever. ---Jonathan & Jasmine

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)
