APRIL WARD-STANBROOK
"We're all a little weird. And Life is a little weird. And when we find someone whose weirdness is compatable with ours, we join up with them and fall into mutually satisfying weirdness -and call it love- true love."
-Robert Fulghum

I’m April (born in the month of May), and also known as The Offbeat Officiant.
 I was appointed as a Massachusetts Justice of the Peace in December of 2012, and currently a member of the Massachusetts Justices of the Peace Association. In addition to being a Justice of the Peace, I am an ordained minister of the Universal Life Church, and can perform ceremonies in Rhode Island. I have also completed the Wedding Planning Course at New York Institute of Art & Design. I have been featured in Boston Spirit magazine, a LGBT publication in the Massachusetts and New England area, as well as in The Boston Globe.

 

Creative, offbeat and open-minded, I welcome all couples and all ideas. My goal is to make the ceremony process stress-free and fun. Together we can create a ceremony that reflects who you are as a couple.

A little bit about me…
I'm happily married to my best friend who I met online in 2002. Together, we have 2 awesome kids, Mayzie and Devin. I enjoy spending time creating art, exploring nature with my family, tending to my little urban homestead with my 4 chickens, psycho cat Chibi, and a betta fish named Marv.
