  • April was phenomenal ! Since the beginning, very easy to communicate with. She listened to every word we said. Our reading was very intimate and personal which was amazing. It’s our true love story that she was able to capture. We’ve only been married two weeks, and I still have guests calling me telling me how great our officiant was. April is great!

  • My wife & I were having a hard time finding an officiant that we just clicked with until someone had recommended April. We spoke with her on the phone & then met with her in her home. The moment we walked in we both felt such comfort and connection. We spent 3 hours with April and booked immediately after the meeting was finished. She took the time to get to know us, our story, and what type of ceremony we were looking to have. No more than a couple of days later we already had our whole ceremony sent to us with different options & instructions. If we had any questions April answered them within 24 hours and was always pleasant and extremely helpful! She sent me information that I didn’t even know I needed or thought of. Now the ceremony- I was beyond nervous before it started. After walking in April started speaking and her calming nature took over and I felt excited and relaxed all over again. She had a beautiful book she read out of that we were able to keep. After the ceremon... Read more

  • My favorite part of my wedding was the ceremony. This is because Pastor April brought such a fun vibe to the day and really made our ceremony personal. We have gotten so many compliments on how beautiful the ceremony was and how much it really fit our unique personalities, this is all to thank Pastor April for!! She is a true gem and a one of a kind genuine person. Take this from some one in the wedding field...she’s the BEST.

  • Rev April was by far one of the best decisions my husband and I made while wedding planning. We opted to take her custom ceremony and our meeting with April was filled with lots of laughs and chit chat, we felt as if April was family by the time we left and a few days later we had a beautiful ceremony that was a complete reflection of myself and my husbands life and the journey we are about to take! The day of the wedding my family fell in love with April even before she began our ceremony. During the ceremony our guests were floored by her words. We laughed, we cried and we said "I Do Bro". The ceremony was nothing short of amazing and something we will remember for the rest of our lives. Thank you April for everything! The Gelsomino's

  • Our wedding was on Sept.14, 2019 and Pastor April was our officiant. We couldn't have been happier with our our whole wedding; and in particular, the way that she performed the ceremony. She met with us well before the wedding date, and got to know us well enough to personalize our ceremony. She asked us what type of particulars we wanted in the ceremony; and everything was just how we wanted it, including a Sand Ceremony and personalized vows which we each had written. We did not have a rehearsal; but Pastor April quietly gave directions and handled the whole ceremony seamlessly. Our DJ handled the music; and they coordinated everything perfectly. There was a perfect blend of romance, solemnity and humor; and all of our guests laughed or cried at some part of the ceremony. Pastor April gave us a beautiful transcript of the entire ceremony afterwards; including a parchment with the personal vows we had made to each other. We, along with our family and friends, will hav... Read more

  • Our wedding ceremony was AMAZING and it was all thanks to April. From my very first phone call with April I knew that we were in good hands. She was informative, helpful, and extremely prompt and articulate with her responses. The thought of standing in front of so many people was something that had me feeling very anxious leading up to our wedding and to my amazement, I was able to feel completely at ease when April began our ceremony. She is able to completely captivate you with her writing and authenticity. Our guests raved to us about how wonderful our ceremony was and how extraordinary April was. Our ceremony was my favorite part of our big day and I cannot thank her enough. With love, Dana and Matthew

  • If you are looking for someone that is easy to work with, so enthusiastic, a pleasure to be around and make your day that much more special then look no further than Pastor April. She has been nothing but a joy to work with and is very accommodating no matter the circumstances. You can tell she has a true passion for this and genuinely loves to be a part of people’s big day. Within minutes of meeting her, it was like she had known us her whole life. The ceremony she wrote was completely personalized to us and so beautifully written and presented. You can tell that she is not only amazing at what she does but puts so much care and effort into it as well. After the ceremony, we had many guests coming up to us unprompted telling us that the ceremony was one of if not the best they’ve ever heard at any wedding and not to be biased but I completely agree. April help make the moment of us getting married a moment we will never forget and an incredibly special day!

  • My husband and I met with two officiants before we met with April. Right off the bat, we were impressed with April's ability to create on the spot. She turned our love story into a beautifully crafted, personalized, ceremony that we will never forget. Our guests came up to us all day and complimented us on the ceremony, stating that it was best wedding ceremony they'd ever witnessed. April is extremely professional and organized as well. She was prompt with email responses and even called me a few times to chat through certain elements of our ceremony that would give it a special touch. Thank you so much, April!!!

  • I cannot rave enough about Aprils talents. Her words just flow and come together flawlessly. She has a true talent and can put love into such beautiful words. We could not have been happier about our ceremony. She really helped us create the ceremony we dreamed of. We highly recommend to all.

  • We couldn't have asked for a better person to preform our ceremony. She took her time to make everything very personal and made us feel as comfortable as possible. Even with just one word she was able to make an entire paragraph about it. Honestly no words can describe how beautiful she made it. If we ever re-newed our vows it would be a no brainer to pick April. Jacqueline & Rob Married: August 2nd, 2019

  • April was one of the easiest vendors we booked. From the moment I emailed her for inquiries to the day of the wedding, she was nothing but professional, sweet and caring. We met with her about ten months before our wedding and we talked about our relationship with her. She wrote most of our ceremony informer of us in her notebook and blew us away. I don’t know how she did it but she captured us in her words so well. She told us to wait to make our decision once she emailed us our entire ceremony (which she did only a day later)! We read her words and she gave us the opportunity to make changes as needed (which we really didn’t need to because it was perfect) and gave plenty wording options. When we were stuck writing our vows about a month out, I emailed her and she answered right away answering all my questions. She is easy to reach out to and is willing to help you every step of the way. Our ceremony was so beautiful and she speaks so well and lovingly. My guests We’re blown aw... Read more

  • When you hire Pastor April you know you are in good hands on your wedding day. She is so incredibly professional and thorough! I knew as soon as I met her that her energy was exactly what our wedding ceremony needed, and we were able to pick a ceremony that met all our spiritual needs! We received MANY compliments from our guests specifically about Pastor April. Everyone loved her personality!

  • Amy is so so passionate about her work and hands down made our ceremony. We met with her for the personalized ceremony and she was absolutely amazing. We knew next to nothing about the process and she was patient and explained everything to us. We had a sample of our ceremony within a day of meeting with her. She was quick to answer any questions and always over extends herself to help. Our ceremony was beautiful and we received SO many compliments on her, her words, and how romantic and intimate she made our ceremony. Thank you April!

  • April has exceeded all of our expectations and she is just beyond amazing from beginning to end. We are so glad to have gone through this journey with her and we wouldn't have it any other way. We chose to sit down with April and write with her. We HIGHLY recommend this to everyone because this makes your ceremony more personal and meaningful. To watch her write and explain our story and journey as a couple was magical. She has a way with crafting words and details . From there we knew we were in good hands. We can attest to April's bubbly personality, respectable and sweet demeanor. Everyone fell in love with her and our guests are still talking about the ceremony. With April, no one falls asleep during the ceremony.

  • I can truly say that Pastor April from the Church of Ancient Ways was the easiest decision we made about our wedding day vendors. We had a very non-traditional vision and neither of us are religious, but we still wanted a professional to do our ceremony. April was a perfect match. She was recommended by our photographer who said that she personalizes every ceremony.. in my head I was like okay great she'll throw in a few lines here and there that tie in with us a couple. Boy was I wrong. We had our in person meeting with her at her house and she sat with us for over an hour and wrote the majority of the ceremony off the top of her head as we were with her. She then sent her draft of the ceremony that evening, it was amazing. We knew right away that we wanted to book her. She was very responsive and easily reachable through the whole process. When the wedding day came, we knew we made the right choice as we got innumerable compliments on her and our ceremony. She made the ceremony trul... Read more
