    Marie April Gismondi was our wedding officiant 2 weeks ago at the beautiful 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.

    We cannot say enough about Rev. April. She was the sweetest person to work with. And she was quick and accurate! Her patience and guidance made picking our vows our favorite part of the wedding. We received so many compliments on our ceremony, which she delivered beautifully. We can't thank her enough, and would recommend her to anyone looking to get married.

    Pastor April is amazing. Our ceremony was unique and beautiful. She is so pleasant and you feel like you've known her forever just at the first meeting. She is very warm and welcoming and truly understands you as a couple to deliver the best ceremony possible. Our marriage certificate was delivered to us a few days after the wedding and she took care of everything. I recommend her 1000x over.

    Pastor April is amazing! She customizes your ceremony so it's personal to you. She's wonderful to work with, pleasant, warm, knowledgeable, and so helpful. She's so down to earth and I know she will be the one thing (not the flowers, lighting, music, etc) that will make the ceremony most memorable. I cannot wait to say I Do with Pastor April leading the way!

    Pastor April officiated Our Wedding on October 9th and was just so wonderful and amazing. She was kind and helpful and fun throughout the entire process, helping us come up with a ceremony that was exactly what we wanted. I also love having a copy of our certificate to save for the future. When I had any questions at all about the marriage process, from paperwork we needed to obtain, or pointers and reminders as the day was approaching, April was amazing. She is a great public speaker and did a fantastic job officiating our ceremony and conveying our feelings to everyone. Our families and friends all said it was a beautiful ceremony, and we are so very greatful to have had the opportunity to work with her. Thank you!
