    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.

    Just got married last weekend with April as our officiant and she was completely 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!

    We could not have been happier with the services Rev. April provided. From our first meeting until the moment we were married, she made everything fun and easy. Our ceremony was beautiful but most importantly it was very much us. We would recommend Rev. April over and over again. She is very professional and truly a wonderful person.

    After meeting April for the first time, I became excited about my wedding ceremony. Our ceremony was fun, uplifting, and personal. I couldn't have asked for anything more!

    April was amazing. She responded quickly to all of our questions, was wonderful to work with and was very helpful the entire time. We had about a dozen guests come up to us and say how much they enjoyed the ceremony.
