Steve and I cannot say enough wonderful things about Reverend Mark. Rev. Mark was not supposed to be our Officiant, the Officiant that we had been working with leading up to the Wedding had a family emergency two weeks before the wedding date and needed to find a replacement. He put us in touch with Reverend Mark and from the minute he did so, Rev. Mark stepped in and was amazing. Reverend Mark immediately wanted to take the time to get to know us prior to the ceremony. Our schedules were crazy leading up to the wedding so Rev. Mark made himself available to come to our apartment at 9pm on a Weeknight to spend time with us. His calm demeanor and genuine approach immediately put us at ease and we were excited that he would be performing our ceremony on our big day.
Reverend Mark did an excellent job delivering our ceremony and it was evident that he spent the time to get to know us by including small pieces of information that he learned from out prior meetings. He truly made it a personal ceremony as if he had known us for years. We had multiple people let us know how beautiful the ceremony was and that is a testament to Rev. Mark. We highly recommend Reverend Mark!
When I first spoke with Norma over the phone, I knew that she would be the PERFECT officiant for us. We wanted a "short and sweet" non-denominational ceremony, that spoke to us as a couple, and Norma did perfectly. After speaking with her a while on the phone, we set up an in-person meeting and spent more than an hour chatting with her while she got to know us better. We also Skyped with her as the day got closer to go over all of the details and allowed us to change anything we didn't like. Norma really made our ceremony personal, and included anecdotes about our relationship, hobbies, and interests. We would strongly recommend One Heart Personalized Ceremonies - they are indeed personal, and made our ceremony beautiful.
Norma was a truly wonderful officiant and a pleasure to work with. From the moment we met her she was warm, welcoming and personable to us, and that translated into every aspect of the work she did with us. She wrote us a beautiful and personal ceremony based on her detailed interview with us and had a ton of really great ideas. On the day of the wedding she was prompt, organized, and prepared. She, and the ceremony itself, got rave reviews from everyone at the wedding; there were so many personal touches and the pacing was perfect. Everything felt unique, special, and completely true to ourselves. I cannot say enough good things about Norma and I'd recommend her in a heartbeat to anyone. If you're looking for someone to make your ceremony a true testament to you and your partner's personalities, Norma is the one.
My husband and I wanted a simple wedding, the less fuss the better. The one thing important to us both was a meaningful ceremony -- Norma created a ceremony that so beautifully expressed our love, it made any of the fuss involved with wedding day preparation 100% worth it.
We first met with Norma in her tranquil home office where she got to know us better as a couple. Within minutes, I felt very comfortable as if I had known her for years. She was sensitive and someone you can trust completely with discussions about marriage, family, and other personal details.
In addition to being an incredibly caring and warm person, Norma is extremely organized and professional. She helped us think through details of our wedding day and ceremony that we otherwise may have forgotten to consider.
She gave us each a written assignment to complete separately from one another. It was comprehensive and gave us both an opportunity to reflect on our relationship, our values and all of the reasons why we wanted to be married. Norma then wove what we had written into a tailor-made ceremony. Her finished work brought tears to my eyes when we reviewed it together a few weeks before our wedding day.
On the day itself, Norma's calm and loving presence guided us through the various rituals she included in our ceremony. She helped to create an incredibly special day that we will treasure forever. I still get emotional when I think about it.
Norma has a truly special talent in helping couples create a wedding ceremony that invokes their deep love for one another. And she does it all with humor and grace.
Once all the scheduling, to-do lists, and stress that comes along with wedding planning is complete, you realize the ceremony is the only thing that really matters. If a meaningful ceremony is your priority, Norma at One Heart is the perfect choice.
Kathleen and Joe - warm congratulations to you and your families and many thanks for your kind words. What a joy to celebrate with you and yours!
While planning our wedding weekend the most important component to us was our ceremony. We struggled for some time to find the right person to marry us. We had an idea of what we wanted our ceremony to look like but our vision was very uncommon and we were not sure if anyone would be able to help us manifest that vision into reality. But then we met Norma. Upon getting the first email from her I knew we were onto something just from the warmth and welcoming tone of her written words. Prior to formally hiring her, she scheduled a meeting so we could all make sure we were comfortable working together. We gathered for coffee and began to share our hopes and dreams for our ceremony. Norma spent a lot of time asking us questions that helped her get to know us and help us bring our vision to light. We knew immediately that Norma was the right person for us because within minutes of speaking to her we felt comfortable. She was open, genuinely interested, and totally nonjudgmental despite our desire to have an unconventional ceremony in front of family and friends who are mostly used to more common religious ceremonies. Walking into the meeting we were nervous about this but Norma embraced our ideas and made us feel confident and excited to share our ceremony with our loved ones. Norma worked closely with us during the remaining months consistently checking in with us and making sure we were happy with her development of the ceremony. Our wedding day ceremony was extremely successful and special. Norma did a fantastic job incorporating our personalities, hopes, dreams, interests, and focus into our ceremony. It was emotional and touching, yet lighthearted and fun. We have gotten a ton of feedback from family and friends telling us that the ceremony was their favorite part of our whole wedding weekend, as it was ours as well. Many people noted how unique it was and that the expression of our love was felt by all. We strongly recommend One Heart Personalized Ceremonies.
Mark was a great officiant for our wedding ceremony! He was very professional and compassionate and really tailored the ceremony to us which made it extra special. We received compliments from our guests saying that they felt it was the most intimate and romantic ceremony they has ever been to, and we owe that to Mark! Thanks so much!
Our wedding ceremony was absolutely beautiful. Norma created the perfect choice of words that not only highlighted us as a couple, but also inspired others. She is very easy to work with & flexible (I planned an out-of-state wedding). Norma is smart, kind-hearted and receptive. She truly cares about her couples as she guides them through her wisdom & faith. If my husband and I decide to renew our vows in the future, we would want Norma to officiate us once again :)
Before we met with Norma my husband and I weren't sure what to expect. She immediately made us feel welcome with her warm and inviting personality, and we felt as if we had known her for years. She came up with a wonderful ceremony outline that was a perfect blend of old and new traditions, and one we knew would not only make us happy, but our families as well. When Norma read us our ceremony for the first time we were both blown away with how she was able to articulate our relationship and what we hoped for in our marriage and lives together so eloquently. We were so lucky to find One Heart Ceremonies and Norma, who made our ceremony so special. Thank You, Norma!
My husband and I planned a 2 night getaway for our 10 year Anniversary. About a week before I thought how nice it would be to surprise my husband & renew our vows. I called the hotel and got a list of venders. One Heart was 1st on the list so I started (and ended) with them. From my 1st call to Norma I knew she was the one I wanted to officiate. In less than a week she put together the most heartfelt personal vows for us! It was better than I ever expected. I provided her with answers to questions and she blew us away! I can not thank Norma enough for making this so very special!!
Hello Amy and Mario
Thank you for your kind words and for placing your trust in me. It was a delight to officiate at your ceremony!
Norma was an absolute pleasure to work with! She wrote a beautiful ceremony for us that was very personalized and heartfelt. We’ve received so many compliments on our ceremony. People have told us that it was the best ceremony they’ve ever been to and we agree :)Thanks to Norma, we felt our true personalities and devotion to one another were represented and our friends and family felt the appreciation we wanted to express. We highly recommend one heart personalized ceremonies and appreciate all of their hard work in making our day so special.
The two of you were a delight to work with and I am thrilled to hear that my words touched your hearts and those of your friends and families, as well.
Please keep in touch. Fondly, Norma Moutal
Norma was wonderful, she answered all my questions and made me feel so at ease!
Thank you Mark for creating a personalized and touching ceremony for us. It was so refreshing to work with someone who took the time to really get to know us, to help us through the process of planning, and to make sure our ceremony was unique. We were very fortunate to have had you and we appreciate your sense of humor…thank you for the ease!
On wedding wire, you can find anybody here - officiants who run public speaking courses, or even help you with a divorce ceremony.We wanted for a wedding officiant who has a more of a religious background and dedicates to helping happy couples. It look us a while to find Rev. Mark.
Mark’s One Heart Ceremony drew our attention immediately - they not only officiate couples, but also offer marriage counselling etc. I knew that’s exactly who we wanted for our wedding - an officiant who truly hope you stay married!
Mark had first met with us before the wedding and next sent through a questionaire on our history, family, and beleifes. He really made our special day a personal experience and was frequently in contact with us throughout the entire process to make sure we had everything in order.
We had an outdoor wedding at Central park. On our wedding day, it was pouring. We had several delays, one of which, a bus had broken down right in front of the groom’s car. Needless to say Mark was waiting patiently when everyone arrived and the service proceed precisely as planned. Rev. Mark is reliable and well-spoken. We would definitely recommend Mark to everybody we know.
Thanks once again Mark, and all the very best - Nick and Xiaoshu.
Mark was amazing! His professionalism and attention to details are second to none. He was wonderful to work with and we have received ENDLESS compliments on our personalized ceremony. I am catholic, my new HUSBAND is jewish and we are not religious. He was able to create an amazing ceremony that combined both a unity candle, breaking of the glass, and our fun-loving personalities. I would absolutely recommend Mark to anyone looking for an officiant for their wedding. Amazing!
Working with Mark for our wedding was a wonderful experience. Mark was very responsive and helpful from our initial contact. Our in-person consultation confirmed for us that Mark was the right fit for us. He has such a lovely personality and it was so easy to interact with him and share our personal stories. Mark seemed genuinely interested in getting to know us. He asked for a lot of information from us and from it he crafted a wonderful ceremony that truly represented us perfectly.
Our families loved meeting Mark on the day of the wedding and they were very impressed and moved by the ceremony he put together for us. He was a calming force for us when we were working through the last moments of chaos before our ceremony.
In addition, Mark was very understanding and accommodating of our scheduling changes and he went out of his way to officiate our wedding on Father's Day, which was already a very busy day for him.
I would highly recommend Mark to anyone looking for a top-notch officiant for their wedding ceremony. One Heart's prices are not the lowest we came across and that's for good reason. When selecting someone to officiate your wedding, you want someone who's going to deliver a very memorable experience and that takes a lot of time and effort, which we undoubtedly received from Mark. It is worth the investment to have such a wonderful vendor take part in your special day.
Mark Giller officiated our ceremony in October of 2014. He did a wonderful job during the ceremony and we couldn't have been happier. The best part about Mark is how he approaches he preparation. He spends a lot of time trying to get to know you as a couple and as an individual, which makes the ceremonies he prepares very unique. Everyone at our wedding assumed we had known Mark for years. He's extremely personable and seems very invested in the happiness of the couples he works with. I would recommend Mark to anyone that's looking for a great officiant.
