Dear April,
A thousand thank-you’s for a perfect wedding ceremony. Both of our families, and our guests are still talking about how beautiful it was. You took our thoughts and presented them exquisitely. The ceremony would not have been the same without you. Everyone said that it was truly magical, and it was. I can’t tell you how wonderful I felt then and still do. Thank you for everything. We hope to see you again soon!
Love,
Gene and Alison

Just got married last weekend with April as our officiant and she was ... MOREcompletely 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! LESS

Marie April Gismondi was our wedding officiant 2 weeks ago at the beau... MOREtiful Westbury Manor. I have to say, it wasn't easy planning the wedding for me as we traveled all the way from Singapore and his family from the UK. However, I have to say, out of so many vendors that I worked with for my wedding while planning from overseas, she's the easiest to work with. I first emailed her to find out her service and after numerous email exchanges, we finally called her up and our decision was made soon after we hung up the phone that she's going to be our wedding officiant. While counting down to our big day, she and her assistant sent us a few emails to remind us about the marriage application, its process and things that we might want to take note of such as name change. The day came which I finally get to meet her in person which is also our big day. She reached the venue before us and we ran through a short rehearsal to make sure everything goes well during the ceremony. And just like her touch of words used in the book that she had prepared for us, she is all positive, sweet and made us feel completely confident and at ease with her. She is also very good with some last minute changes. I had my sister to do some language translation during the ceremony so my non-English speaking relatives could understand. She planned it with my sister a while before the actual ceremony and it went very smoothly. Our guests loved the beautiful ceremony that we had and we have to say it won't be so without her great service. Thank you for giving us such a wonderful memorable ceremony. We couldn't ask for more.

DIAMOND PROMOTION

So many wonderful couples call with very little money to spend on thei... MOREr ceremony. For me even a simple ceremony is a 4 or 5 hour investment with writing, travel and preparation. However there are couples who really do only want 15 minutes of interaction. Lets face it the big fancy wedding isn't for everyone. Yet this is no reason to settle for the sterile, bare bones atmosphere of Town Hall either. I offer a low cost service in my yard under the arch for $75.00. Bride groom and 2 witnesses to sign the license. This includes a few quick words on marriage and then you may speak your hearts to one another. We follow with an exchange of vows and rings and the pronouncement of Husband and Wife! For more information or to schedule a wedding, please feel free to call me any time!
