From Vivian M
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. And I also 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.
