    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!

    April Beer is the absolute best! I cannot begin to express how happy we were to have April as our officiant!

    My husband and I got married in Morristown, New Jersey in September 2017, but we were planning the whole wedding from our home in Washington, DC which really complicated the whole process of wedding planning. I found April's website online, and I could tell from the first moment that she seemed like exactly what I was looking for. We got in touch via email and met via Skype. My husband and I loved April immediately; she made us feel so comfortable and she clearly is doing what she loves which meant a lot to us. April gave us some real homework to do so she could get acquainted with each of us as individuals and as a couple, asking about our lives and how we came together, what challenges we had overcome and milestones we celebrated. She advised us through the entire process, answering our questions and providing guidance without ever being overbearing or bossy. She was open to all our weirdness (of which there was a bunch!) and listened really carefully when we told her what we were hoping for from our ceremony. April made sure there were no surprises with the ceremony, giving us full control of the final product.

    The day of the wedding was the first time we all met in person, and it felt like I knew her forever. She made me feel just as comfortable in person, running us through the rehearsal and making sure everyone knew what was going on. I cannot recommend working with April enough. She is one of a kind!
