  • We hired April for a small ceremony that was going to be done within a month's time. She was able to walk us through everything we need to get married, and also write a beautiful ceremony. Not only was this an easy, painless process, but the delivery was amazing! Very knowledgeable of all the great areas to have a ceremony across Long Island. I would easily recommend her services to anyone.

  • We are completely happy with this process from reaching out and to having our ceremony. We wanted to have a small private ceremony on the same date that we will have our big reception and party on next year. Within the same day and same week I e-mailed, we were able to make it happen. April was so flexible and made scheduling stress free! The location was perfect, especially given this crazy time with COVID. She took beautiful photos of us before and after! We are beyond happy and grateful to have had April marry us. I would recommend April to anyone!!

  • Well yes, "wedding planning" and "easy" can be used in the same sentence and not, they do not have to be separated by "is not".... My wife and I reached out to April and instantly knew she will be the one officiating our wedding. She made the entire process around our ceremony so effortlessly easy to plan with easy to follow templates, encouraging words and just so much love for what she does. Not a single soul at our wedding forgot to mention how much they loved April. She is a FABULOUS public speaker and makes your ceremony nothing less than magical. If you are getting married and are looking for an officiant - please do yourself a favor and get in touch with April. This is one decision you will thank yourself for making every step of the way. She is amazing and so are the beautiful people that work with her. I'd marry (my wife) again just to have April conduct our ceremony again.. Need I say more? : )

  • April has been so accommodating and helpful during this pandemic. I had to postpone my venue but still got married on my original date in December in my parents backyard with the 10 person limit. She answered any questions I had and concerns. She kept in touch with me to see if I had any further questions or if I had any issues getting my marriage license. Her speech was great and she didn’t read from a piece of paper like other officiants from other companies.

  • Rev. Joe was absolutely incredible! I can't put into words how impressed and happy we and our families were with the way Rev. Joe officiated the wedding. He was very impressive and really got to know us during our interview. We were very comfortable around him. So much so, it almost felt like we've known each other for years! We really couldn't have asked for anyone better.

  • April was courteous and professional from the start of the wedding process. We knew we wanted her to perform our ceremony as she had previously officiated our friends wedding and was fantastic. April from the first day we spoke with her was very helpful throughout the whole wedding process which can be stressful on the best of days, add COVID and this was a stressful time and she helped us and gave us recommendations and suggestions as we asked. She was always there to answer our calls and any questions we had. Thank you so much April, we truly appreciate it. I would recommend April to anyone who is in need of an officiant

  • April was one of the most wonderful parts of our wedding day. From the moment we met April, we knew we needed to have her for our ceremony. We were so impressed with the way April wrote about my husband I. It truly felt as if we had known her our entire lives. From the beginning, April was professional, accommodating, and a pleasure to work with. Our guests could not stop raving about our ceremony! We are so grateful that April was apart of our special day! We love her! -Kyra and Michael Marando

  • We booked Brenda Santana to officiate our wedding. She helped us from the day we booked until day of. She wrote a ceremony exactly how we asked(there are many options for different preferences). She helped us write our vows and encouraged us to share them in front of everyone, which we are very happy we did. We would recommend Brenda to anybody!!

  • We had pastor Gismondi as the officiant for our wedding and I can't say enough good things about her. She worked with us to tailor the ceremony to our liking and to personalize everything to us. April was always there when we needed to ask a question or for some advice. I would highly recommend her and the Church of Ancient Ways to anyone that needs an officiant on Long Island.

  • April did an incredible job at our wedding ceremony. All of our guests came up to us raving about how wonderful she was, and how special our ceremony was because of her. From our first meeting to the day of our wedding, she made us feel comfortable and answered all of our many questions. She created a ceremony that had everything we wanted and helped our day run smoothly and seamlessly. We’re SO glad we chose April as our officiant, because she is incredible. All of our guests are still raving about her, as are we!!!

  • Working with The Church of Ancient Ways & Rev. Aviva Sala was one of the easiest parts of wedding planning! Although covid threw a wrench into our wedding plans, we used the opportunity to get married on our original date in a small intimate ceremony with immediate family & bridal party. Aviva was fantastic from start to finish! She is so personable, loves a good laugh & made our ceremony even more special than we had both imagined. She married my brother & sister in law in 2018 and we knew immediately following their wedding we wanted to book with her also! 10000/10, you will not regret it!!!

  • April was able to fit us in a few weeks in advance with a socially-distant ceremony during the covid pandemic. When we were scrambling just to be able to get married, she suggested a nice area to get married outside with lovely scenery to make out day special. Her speech was lovely, she definitely does a great job. She was recommended to me by several friends. I also highly recommend her.

  • April Gismondi did an absolutely AMAZING job at my wedding. My guests couldn’t help but continuously compliment her as she took the time to get to know my husband and i and write a beautifully well said speech. She was a delight to work with and made everything so smooth. I had to postpone my wedding 3 times and April made Each transition timeless and easy. She even let my husband and i use her Personal home for my husband and i to get married before our big party I have nothing bad to say !!

  • I had been to another wedding where Reverend April Gismondi was the officiant and loved her presence and delivery right away, and knew that I wanted to book her for my wedding! When we met with her, she had a warmth and caring spirit that my husband and I immediately connected with. April married us in a small ceremony in May 2020 during the pandemic and wrote us a very special ceremony that went with our "fairy tale" Disney theme. She was not available for our postponed wedding date, but referred us to her colleague Reverend Aviva Sala. Aviva was just as wonderful and amazing as April! She delivered our ceremony perfectly and the guests had nothing but good things to say about her. I am so happy they were part of our wedding day!
