    The A in April Should Be Amazing

    This review is a bit late on my part but hopefully well worth the wait!

    April Beer is a fantastic wedding officiant if what you're looking for is a completely customized and personal ceremony that will make anyone laugh, cry, or both. If you're looking for some basic, cookie-cutter officiant, then move along.

    But if you're a couple who wants to have an experience, a true celebration of your union that also includes all of your loved ones and friends, then April Beer should be your go-to.

    From the very beginning, she was super personable and fun - took the time to get to know us and made sure we were a good fit to work together. From there, we went back and forth so she could learn more about us and what we were looking for in a ceremony. She was an absolute delight throughout the whole process, and funny to boot.

    (April also helped reign it in when needed during the practice run and day of - she was on point and a big help!)

    April even asked if I wanted her to match the theme of the wedding (including nail polish, too. I didn't even know that was a thing? Also, what kind of bride dictates their wedding officiant's nails?!)

    Our wedding ceremony was nothing short of awesome - it was funny and personal, filled with love, and a little bit of beer too. (Ayyyeee!) We couldn't have done it without her.

    Thank you so much for making our day special and weird.

    April made us feel comfortable from the moment we met her. She guided us and gave us suggestions along they way. She created a personal and memorable wedding ceremony that expressed exactly the tone we were looking for. With tears and laughs from both our selves and our guests. She was a pleasure to work with and to get to know!
