    It was very important to us that our ceremony be the most important part of our day, and that it provided our families and friends with an insight into our love and into our hearts. As soon as we met with Pastor April and felt her warmth, kindness, professionalism, and heard her speak – we knew that she would be the perfect person to do this for us! From our initial meeting that was like a huge brainstorming session, through each time we met with her to fine-tune our ceremony, we felt as if we were visiting with an old friend – she makes you so comfortable and gets to know you so well! She perfected everything and anything we said and wrote, and turned into fire any tiny flicker of an idea that we presented to her. She is a gifted wordsmith, by far! Every single one of our guests told us that our ceremony was the best they have ever seen, and many said they wished that April could have performed their weddings! If you see my pictures from my ceremony, you can see the warmth radiating from her – her smile totally encouraged us and soothed us throughout the whole morning. April obviously loves what she does and it shows. She genuinely wants to make her couples happy - and she definitely made us happy. We were so honored to have her perform our marriage ceremony, and will be forever grateful to her for being part of our day.

    All my vendors were great on the wedding day but I have say Pastor April is my favorite. I absolutely LOVE Pastor April. She’s the most amazing woman – great sense of humor, great orator, great personality and exceptional officiant! I can’t praise this woman highly enough. From day one I had a hunch she’s the one officiant we’re looking for. Even DH who’s usually critical about anyone who sounds too good to be true was won over! Pastor April doesn’t just have a great personality, she’s also very professional. She is always prompt in responding to emails and phone calls. On the wedding day she arrived an hour early so she can help us calm our nerves and make any other ceremony preparations. Our wedding guests were all blown away by how beautifully she performed the ceremony. She really made each couple she marry feel special by composing truly unique vows that reflect who they are. DH and I highly recommend her!

    April is an amazing person. We felt so comfortable with her. She made our wedding ceremony so personal, and had the entire place in tears. (happy of course). She has a loving angelic presence, and I thank god that we found her. The entire ceremony was about Jonathan and I, she helped us write our own personal vows, that were a surprise to each of us. She also typed out and made our vows into a beautiful book for us to keep and cherish always. She worked very hard to make our day perfect, and it showed in every way..

    Officiant – Rev. April Gismondi, Church of Ancient Ways – A+++ April was great through out the whole process – always answered my emails promptly and clearly, made wonderful suggestions, and really got to know us as a couple in order to personalize the ceremony. She made us feel like it was so special and as if we were the only people in the world at that moment. I got so many compliments on the ceremony, she was so wonderful to work with. I HIGHLY recommend April!!!
