    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!

    My husband and I got married at Westbury Manor on 8/20 dispite the rain storm that kept coming and going Marie April was fantastic! From day one she was very attentive and took care of us no matter how many questions or emails we sent. We truly are very thankful and lucky to have found her. We truly appreciate everything she has done and are beyond ecstatic that we choose her to do our wedding ceremony. Everyone who attended the wedding complemented her in more ways than one and thought the ceremony was beautiful. She truly took the time to make our wedding day special and our own.

    Where do I even begin to describe how incredible Pastor April was for us; She was kind, caring, and genuinely helped us in our journey to the big wedding day. When we 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. Along the way in the months and weeks leading up to the wedding she closely worked with us to make sure our ceremony was absolutely perfect and that it was catered to us. On top of it all she was at our wedding before we even arrived! Making sure she was punctual and as helpful as she could be on the day of the wedding. I highly recommend her for your ceremony, you won’t be disappointed.

    Pastor April married us in November 2015 and we have to say that marrying people is really her calling. She was born to do this job. If you are like us, we wanted a ceremony that was personal but we didn’t want to have to cry and nervously spill our guts with our own vows in front of a hundred people. We wanted our ceremony to be succinct, lively, and entertaining, but still offer a certain gravity and soulfulness. And we wanted to hit the right note of spirituality without being cheesy or cookie-cutter. Pastor April delivered on all of these parameters and more! Her special talent is being able to interview you as the wedding couple and almost instantaneously write “your story” in a way that is unique and captures who you are as a couple. She has a real gift for language and writing and storytelling in a way that I think many officiants don’t. In person, she is super smart, organized, charismatic in front of a crowd, and has a little boho chic to her. Our guests mentioned that she was very engaging and that the ceremony was very modern and “cool.” She’s also full of useful advice and tips to make your ceremony flow better like having a candle lighting during our singer and wearing my engagement ring on my pinky finger. She has several options for vows and readings and lays them all out so you can pick and choose. She always communicated well with us and gave us plenty of time and was clear about procedures and timelines. On the wedding day, she kept us calm and on track and was truly happy for us from her heart. We also appreciated her keepsake book of our ceremony which is a nice way to remember the day without us having to spend more money on yet another item. We can read our vows each year on our anniversary and relive our beautiful day. Please hire April...she is truly special!!

    We had Rev. April officiate our wedding and she was great. We had a simple ceremony so we just dealt with her through email in the months leading up to the wedding. She made the process so simple. You can either use a sample ceremony on her website or work with her to form your own. On the day of the wedding, she was extremely organized and helped us with everything including the marriage license/certificate process. She is a great public speaker and did a fantastic job officiating our ceremony and conveying our feelings to everyone. We've gotten so much positive feedback on her from our family and friends. She was always easy to reach and communicate with. We'd definitely recommend her.
