    April is the officiant you’d want to choose!

    We used April as our officiant for our wedding on 11.11.2018. She did such a great job that everybody was in awe. The ceremony written by April was so beautiful and fitting to us. My wife’s more religious as I am not, and she’s made it a perfect balance to make us both happy. The process of working with her was easy as she was willing to answer questions whenever we needed. The excitement she showed for marrying us made us feel so special that she truly cared about being part of our special day!

    Amazing Officiant!!!!

    April was amazing! She wrote our ceremony from scratch and tailored it perfectly after meeting with us for a short time. From what we heard there was not a dry eye in the house at our wedding! People were raving about her! We highly recommend!!!!

    Free PA system
    Part of what makes for a good ceremony is your guests being able to hear you. My system is all wireless and the mic is smaller than my pinky nail. No big turkey leg of a microphone in my couple's pictures! (saves you $250 - $300)

    April is amazing, every time I see her officiate a service I get excited. She talks about each couple as if she has known them their whole lives and keeps the congregation engaged throughout the entire service.
