Outstanding Officiant crafted a perfect ceremony!

Norman was an absolute professional and a pleasure to work with! His unique style of crafting a personal narrative of our story for the ceremony had our entire family in tears. He was attentive in the months leading up to the wedding and willing to accommodate any and all requests made of him. The ceremony itself was the perfect combination of romance, humor, and love.

If you are looking for a unique and memorable wedding ceremony, look no further! Norman will give you and your fiance the time and attention you need to feel comfortable and confident that your wedding day will be nothing short of perfect!

Great Interfaith Ceremony!

We chose Norman to officiate our wedding and couldn’t be happier with how things turned out. My wife and I are an interfaith couple (Christian / Jewish) so we were up front with Norman about wanting to incorporate traditions from both religions from the start. There were no issues and Norman was happy to accommodate things that were important to us. For many parts of the ceremony he has a few “scripts” for us to choose from which was a big help when you’re already making dozens of decisions for other parts of the wedding planning process. Norman had us fill out a questionnaire in order to learn more about us as a couple, including how we met, what we love about each other, some funny stories, etc. All of this info ended up going into a “story” Norman read at our ceremony. He did a really great job and had the crowd laughing and “awwing” throughout. We never met Norman in person until the rehearsal, but I’m sure a few people at the ceremony probably thought he knew us as a couple for some time!

All in all, I would recommend Norman. He was easy to work with and happy to accommodate any odd requests you may have to make your ceremony just the way you want it.

Awesome officiant!

Norman was the best officiant we could have asked for. He made our ceremony very personable, and light hearted just like us.
