April made us feel special from the moment we sat down with her. Actually, we knew she was great from the first email, before we even set up our first meeting. After just the first time we met her she “got us.” She truly has a way of capturing a couple, their personalities, and their relationship with each other. She turns this into a beautiful, personalized ceremony. What she originally wrote was so spot on that we edited very little. She was always available to help edit the ceremony, gave advice on our personal vows, and even asked if we needed help getting our marriage license. Additionally, she gave advice on the processional song and called to alleviate my nerves. We had guests who thought April was a personal friend and were waiting for her to say during the ceremony how she knew us. We had many guests compliment the ceremony; they are still talking about it. She’s quirky, funny, and makes you feel like you’ve known her forever. April did not just speak, she captivated the audience. She moved around, smiled, really addressed the audience. One guest said, “I liked that she didn’t just stand there and read off the paper like I’ve seen other officiants do.” April is also genuinely excited to hear about your relationship, write a ceremony for you, and officiate that ceremony. The binder she created was so professional looking and is another keepsake that made our day everything we hoped it would be. It has a beautiful font with the entire ceremony typed up and a personalized wedding certificate with a theme we got to choose. She was prepared for our beach wedding with her own sound system and tissues. I love that she made us speak into the microphone for our vows and the “I do’s.” I’ve been at weddings where I can’t hear the bride. April, thank you so much for making our day truly spectacular!
