We love Norma!
We loved Norma from the start. She truly took time to learn who we are as a couple and crafted a beautiful and personalized speech for our wedding. We got so many compliments after the wedding on such a great officiant. She was professional and kind and that's all we could ask for. We're thrilled with how everything worked out.Sent on 07/24/2019

Beautiful and Personal
Sometimes, in the midst of wedding planning, you can forget the real reason you’re doing all of this. To marry the love of your life. Mark made sure we not only remembered that, but prioritized it. The individual personalization and meaningful touches he used in our ceremony were so beautiful and special to us. So many of our guests said it was the best ceremony they’d ever watched. It was perfect and Mark’s services were worth every penny. If you’re nervous about how to create a ceremony from scratch, you can relax and let Mark build the perfect one for you and your spouse.Sent on 09/17/2019
One Heart Personalized Ceremonies's reply:Thank you, Shannon for your kind words. Getting to know you & John was a joy! With each meeting and conversation, your love and devotion for one another was ever present. By the way, I so enjoyed all the laughter ( and a few tears ) - the whole range of emotions that your guests shared openly on wedding day. Wonderful folks, all. There was a whole lot of love in that room. Wishing you both and your families continued joy and peace. From my heart,

Amazing Experience Working with Mark as Our Officiant
We cannot thank Mark more for creating such a beautiful ceremony for us. We fell in love with Mark the first 5 minutes talking to him, not only because of his charming voice and personality but also his professionalism. He crafted a touching speech for us out of the multiple pages questionnaire and turned it into something so beautiful that we could have wished for. Mark went above and beyond to accommodate our needs and paid extra attention to details to correct our grammar in the vows and get all the complicated Chinese names pronunciation right. All the family members and guests cannot stop complimenting how beautiful the ceremony is. We truly highly recommend Mark to all couples!!!Sent on 09/02/2019

Brought a personal touch
We are so pleased with the ceremony Mark created for our wedding in July 2019. His process allowed for him to get to know us over a short period of time and respond to what was important to us. We had to balance religion, culture, and family expectations for which Mark gave honest feedback and encouragement. His experience showed even more on the day of when he met our families and worked with the venue when our ceremony was delayed. Mark treated our wedding as an equally important day for the bride and groom and picked up on the tone and style of our wedding. I imagine he mirrors the unique tone and style for all couples he works with.Sent on 08/30/2019

Beautifully captured our Relationship and Intentions
From the first communication Mark was attentive, listening to every details and so very thorough and helpful. We wanted spiritual, blessed and belonging to come from our vows and Mark captured that completely. He asked about every detail to be sure we were ready beyond the vows and ceremony he would be putting together. We were unsure which location in NYC we wanted, he took time and helped us to select just the perfect location, CopCot in Central Park. He captured our emotions, our feelings and our direction for our lives beautifully and simply. Our families loved every minute of the day with each commenting "what a wonderful ceremony and minister."Sent on 09/14/2019
We are blessed to have found each other in this crazy world and thrilled we chose Mark for our minister in joining our lives together, as one.

“The ceremony was the best part of our wedding day!”
“The ceremony was the best part of our wedding day!” is what my husband and I both said following our wedding! It was all incredible, but the ceremony was made so special by Norma. We had laughs, we had tears, and we had moments both ourselves and our guests will never forget. It was so memorable, as Norma made it clear that everyone before us was in the presence of true love, and that was very special for us. She spoke beautifully and truly personalized the ceremony just for my husband and I. Norma really took the time to get to know us beforehand, and used what she learned and felt, to create a ceremony unlike any other. Everyone expressed how unique and beautiful our ceremony was! Norma is exceptional.Sent on 10/13/2019
Thank you for being such a special part of “the best part of our wedding day!” You made our ceremony one to remember by all!

One of the best parts of our wedding!
Mark truly was one of the best parts of our wedding. He made our wedding beyond memorable, with his custom and personal ceremony. I can not even count the amount of people that commented on how amazing the officiant was, and how touching and beautiful the ceremony was. Thank you Mark for making our day THAT much more special. You were truly amazing and can not thank you enough for making our ceremony so special.Sent on 09/03/2019

My wife and I were very impressed with the ceremony Reverend Mark created for us. We wanted something non-denominational, with a touch of spirituality, touching on both of our cultures and faiths, while including personal anecdotes and sayings. Reverend Mark, was extremely thorough, very kind and a very good listener. Reflective of this, we had several guests post ceremony, ask if we had a personal relationship with our officiant pre-wedding, as he conveyed our life story and connected with both us and the guests in a great fashion. My wife's father also commented on how Reverend Mark included such detail and life stories that he took some of his speech material. We found him to be very attentive and put our needs first, listening and creating a ceremony we will cherish for a lifetime. It was a true pleasure working with you Mark.Sent on 08/04/2019

We had such an incredible experience working with Mark. He hits every "mark" when it comes to his professionalism and experience. Our wedding ceremony was truly one of a kind with many guests telling us how captivating it was! Mark takes the time to get to know you and your partner through various meetings so that when the wedding day comes you feel SO comfortable standing next to him as he conducts your completely personalized ceremony!Sent on 09/03/2019
If you have the chance to work with Mark we have no doubt it will be everything you expect and more. We are truly blessed that Mark was a part of our big day!

Norma is the best!
Norma Moutal is THE BEST! If you are reading this post, you need to skip to her contact information and book her immediately!Sent on 07/14/2019
After spending a couple of sessions with us and having us each answer a questionnaire, Norma was able to craft and deliver a beautiful and magical message. It was like she had known us for years! She brought love, compassion, laughter and joy to the most important moment of our lives and we are so thankful for her.
Norma has a gift for getting to know couples and crafting a message that was inspiring to everyone. She also gave us great ideas to incorporate special aspects of our faiths in a subtle but meaningful way. While the questionnaire may sound like a homework assignment, it was worth it! Norma was able to incorporate what we each shared into a beautiful ceremony that we will always remember. We are still getting positive feedback from all of our guests and will be forever grateful for Norma! Stef & Charlie G
Pam · Married on 05/18/2019
We used Norma Moutal as our officiant. We know of her through a close friend whose wedding she officiated. Our wedding was non-denominational wedding. I am Jewish and my husband is Catholic. She was very detailed and thorough. She met with us initially via FaceTime to ask us questions and get to know us. After we chose her, she sent us a questionnaire with many questions for my husband and me to answer separately and submit to her to help her write the ceremony. She was on point! It highlighted all the important things about us, our relationship, and our plans for the future. She gave us suggestions of other rituals to include in our ceremony because we were doing the breaking of the glass for the Jewish side. We included a Unity Candle and also a keepsake box, and two readings. The ceremony was appropriate length where all the important things were included, but was not too long and drawn out. Her delivery was excellent. She was absolutely perfect for our wedding, and we are so glad she was a part of our special day!Sent on 05/20/2019
One Heart Personalized Ceremonies's reply:My dear Chris and Pam, it was truly a pleasure officiating for you and working with you toward the creation of your special ceremony. I am so happy to hear that your ceremony is a memory you will treasure.

Mark is the best!
Mark was an absolute joy to have officiate our wedding! He is an extremely personable and professional man. My husband and I met with Mark in person once beforehand where we gave him a detailed breakdown of our relationship and individual personalities. He put together a stunning, personal and moving ceremony for us. It was the perfect combination of sentimental and light-hearted. Not cheesy, not forced. Everything flowed beautifully. We are so grateful to him for the time and effort he put in to make our ceremony feel special. Thank you, Mark!Sent on 09/03/2019

Professionalism Personalization and
We had a big task ahead of us...organizing a wedding in less than 6 months! We scoured the wedding sites for great reviews and over and over again One Heart was top-rated. When we met Mark, we knew why. His calming demeanor and professionalism helped guide us during this whirlwind time. We met in person and just talked -- about us, about our cat, something about football that I tuned out -- what it was was natural and easy. Over the course of several weeks we continued our conversations, we talked some more, filled out a questionnaire and then Mark got to work on his personalized ceremony. He took into consideration everything - things we didn't even consider - like the sensitivity of two faiths coming together and two cultures needing to find balance. He found that beautiful space within. The end result was a thoughtful and inspiring ceremony that joined our family and friends in the most compelling way. It was truly special to work with Mark and we highly recommend his services to any couple tying the knot.Sent on 03/27/2019

Fabulous Wedding Officiate
Once again Norma from One Heart Ceremony provided us with a one of a kind wedding experience. 16 years ago she married my son, Justin, now she officiated at my wedding. Her passion, caring and expertise made our ceremony not only personal but so enjoyable for everyone in attendance. What a gem and so easy to work with.Sent on 01/14/2019

We were so fortunate to have Norma Moutal as our wedding officiant.Sent on 01/29/2019
From start to finish, the process was personalized and organized. Her professionalism and ability to get things done were second to none.
She spent quality time with us throughout the planning process to ensure that our vision would come to fruition. Norma was able to meet via facetime at a time that was convenient for us, was responsive via email, and had a detailed process. She helped us create a wedding ceremony that was unique and highlighted each of our cultures. She was such a pleasure to work with and coordinated with our vendors for a stress- free wedding day. Norma was sensitive to our needs and wishes, and delivered expertly. Our guests thought she was a family friend!
We had the moment of our lives and Norma was a big part in making it a memorable day. We would highly recommend Norma to any couple looking to create a purely unique and meaningful ceremony.

Cannot Thank Mark Enough!
What can my husband and I say about how wonderful Mark is?Sent on 03/07/2019
When we were searching for a wedding officiant, we had originally interviewed someone else and we both left feeling underwhelmed. We scheduled an appointment with Mark and knew immediately that upon meeting him that he would be the man that married us!
During our initial interview, Mark spent time getting to know us, our families, our traditions and everything else important to us. He felt like a friend + family member after the first meeting. We come from different backgrounds (I am Jewish, my husband’s family is from Ireland). Mark was so careful about honoring the traditions from both of our families equally.
Our wedding ceremony was beautiful and felt so uniquely “us”. Members from both sides of our family complimented us, our beautiful vows & Mark’s amazing ceremony.
Mark, we cannot thank you enough for your part in our special day. You are such a warm and genuine person! We are forever grateful and would HIGHLY recommend his services to anyone looking to plan their wedding ❤️.

The first phone call I had with Mark sealed the deal for me. I thought he was very professional and clearly had over 30 years of experience creating ceremonies for people. He created a beautiful unique ceremony for us. As we said our vows, we had our hands joined with a ribbon to symbolize "tying the knot." Also, he was good at giving us quiet instructions while at the altar which made it seem like we knew what we were doing. So many of my guests came up to me during the cocktail hour and commented on how much they enjoyed the ceremony he created.Sent on 11/05/2018

Norma was amazing. She wrote us a completely personal, unique ceremony that was everything that we wanted it to be. She really got to know us during the planning phase, and the questionnaires she had us fill out was so thoughtful and really made us stop and think about what we wanted. We got so many compliments on how beautiful the ceremony was and how great Norma was. Thank you Norma!Sent on 10/10/2018

Had such a great experience!
Me and my Husband were in the search for an officiant who would give us a fun, sentimental and memorable ceremony and we found just that with Norma. From the very beginning Norma was attentive, responsive and easy to work with. She listened to who were were as people and made sure she put all of that and more into our ceremony. Norma was very kind and dealt with my MANY questions I had through out the whole process without a blink of an eye. She was there for us the day of with all of our nerves and jitters and managed to keep us calm and make us smile. She eased through the ceremony like a pro and even made due with the poor lighting she was given as our ceremony was outside and got dark quick. Thank you Norma for giving us such a wonderful experience that we will carry with us for a lifetime.Sent on 11/15/2018

I had the pleasure of meeting Mark a couple of years ago at my nephews Colorado wedding. He and his beautifully designed ceremony had quite an impact on our entire family. When it came time this past October to create the best and most personalized ceremony for my daughter and her fiancé, the decision was easy. Mark custom designed a ceremony that truly reflected their immeasurable love for each other, what they embody as people and as a couple, and all the things that they hold most dear in the world. At the same time, he tastefully incorporated both family’s religious traditions in a way that was meaningful to everyone in attendance. It’s a gift to watch as he eloquently plays with all your emotions easily making you laugh and just as easily bringing you to tears. His writing was superb and heartfelt as if he had known Rachel and Chris throughout the course of their entire relationship. My wife and I would like to thank you Mark for helping to make this October wedding one that we, and all our guests, will never forget.Sent on 03/19/2019
