    Beautiful Ceremony

    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.

    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!

    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.

    Norma was amazing. She was the officiant of a friend's wedding, and I fell in love with her warmth and ceremony and hired her for my wedding. This was one of the best decisions I made for our wedding. Thank you Norma for everything!!!

    Norma tailored made a beautiful ceremony!

    Norma wrote a beautiful, personal, and unique ceremony for us-we chose the Autumn Equinox as our date to celebrate the fall bounty and she tied this in without being over the top or hokey. Throughout the process she was good at communication and easy to get in touch with, she reviewed our vows and sent our marriage certificate in promptly. Any questions I had after the wedding she has also answered quickly for me. Everyone at our wedding is still complimenting how beautiful and original our wedding ceremony was. The day of the wedding she was professional and calm and did a great job of making things run smoothly.

    Beautiful ceremony

    Norma at One Heart Personlized ceremonies was wonderful to work with and our ceremony was different and special as I hoped it would be. Our meetings were always enjoyable and she was very inviting and welcoming each time. We had an outdoor wedding and the weather decided to be uncooperative which led to our ceremony being under the pavilion instead of out in the open over looking the valley of trees at our venue. Norma’s ceremony was beautifully written and I was in awe the entire time and my husband and I couldn’t have been happier despite the rainy forecast. We definitely recommend her services.

    Alicia and Eddie, it was a pleasure working with you and an honor to officiate for you on your special day. The rain didn't dampen the love and joy in the air at Emmerich Tree Farms on your special day!

    MARK! What an incredible experience! From the initial meeting to the day of reading, you truly outdid yourself. I cried from start to finish, with our first reading and day of; he was able to capture the intimate moments while engaging our guests in our life story. I could not speak more highly of Mark and his services. He takes his time to really get to know the couple and crafts a ceremony entirely custom to you. You will NOT be disappointed with One Heart Ceremonies, and I HIGHLY RECOMMEND Mark and Norma!

    Thank you for making our day so special!

    My husband and I worked with Norma from One Heart Personalized Ceremonies for our ceremony and she did not disappoint!! Norma was truly fantastic and invited us into her home to discuss our vision and what we wanted our ceremony to portray. Norma is very professional, organized and thoughtful! We first met with Norma about 10 months before our wedding to discuss our thoughts for the ceremony and put down the initial deposit. Based off of her numerous amazing reviews and then after meeting her we knew we needed her to officiate our wedding.
    She sent us home with a very thorough questionnaire which helped us tremendously think and write about our relationship, friendship, soon to be marriage, family and future with one another. She truly wanted to get to know us and make our ceremony very personalized. She also asked if we wanted to incorporate any religious traditions to the ceremony as both my husband and I grew up practicing different religions. She had recommended that we each pour wine into a glass and take as sip and my husband also wanted to stomp on a glass at the end of our ceremony. Norma had personally reached out to our wedding venue to make sure they would have everything we needed available to make all of this happen for us.
    As the wedding was getting closer we met with her about a month before to go over what she had come up with for our ceremony based off of our questionnaires. She had both my husband in I in tears because of how beautiful, truthful and genuine the ceremony she put together for us was. We could see how much thought and time went into our ceremony and we are so thankful everything Norma has done for us! She is truly amazing!

    Hello Julie and Jason and thank you so much for your kind words. I am so happy that you found the ceremony that I crafted for you to be balanced and meaningful not only for the two of you, but also for your family and friends. This being the second ceremony I have officiated in Jason's family made this even more special for me and I am deeply honored to have been invited to share yet another joyous moment in your family.

    Everyone kept telling us throughout the reception how beautiful the ceremony was and how great Norma was; even the musicians. Norma made the whole process easy and fun. She listened to what we wanted included (and not included) and made it flow wonderfully. Instead of doing a unity candle since we were outside for the ceremony, she suggested building a bouquet to symbolize our families and lives joining and growing together. It was so unique and perfect. One Heart Personalized Ceremonies is the best name since that is exactly what the do!

    My husband David and I were married by Norma a few weeks ago in New York City. Norma arrived and it felt like we knew each other for years. Norma helped us to write a wonderful personal and thoughtful ceremony. Our guests laughed and cried by her touching words. She worked with us so our wedding was what we wanted. All my guests said the ceromony was wonderful and that Norma was able to be understood easily.

    We hired Mark to officiate our wedding and are so happy that we did! We had been looking for the right person, someone who connected with us, and at our first meeting together, we completely hit of off with him and we knew he was our guy! He is very professional and such a nice man, we really enjoyed working with him! He really took the time to get to know us and put so much time & work into creating such a personal ceremony for us! It was perfect! Our family and wedding guests all told us how much they enjoyed the ceremony and how beautiful it was. Thank you so much from the bottom of our hearts for making our wedding ceremony so special. It was the Best day of our lives! Michelle & Francesco

    Norma our officiant was one of the best decisions we made as a couple. We were impressed by the attention to detail Norma gave to our special day. The ways in which she was able to eloquently narrate our ceremony made everyone present witness to how important this day was to us. Most vendors will not give you the amount of personalized attention Norma gave to us, and the product of that dedication came with a beautiful ceremony which was the first thing all my family members raved about. I could not more highly recommend Norma and Mark if you wish to make sure your day is exactly how you vision it.

He really made everything smooth and we had 1 less thing to worry about. Our guests loved him as well. It was great how he customized the whole experience for us. I would without a doubt recommend him. Just Awesome!

    We couldn't have been happier with Mark Giller as our wedding officiant. We loved him right off the bat -- his easygoing manner, his knowledge of the process, his catering to our wishes, his ideas. He composed a personalized, pitch-perfect ceremony and delivered it with such aplomb that we received many compliments on him. If we could do it all over again, Mark would still be our choice.

    Mark was awesome! Our wedding was quite last minute so we were lucky to get him! We are from New Orleans so he Skyped us ahead of time to get to know us and learn all the personal details. The ceremony was flawless and Mark was a true professional! Thanks, Mark for making our ceremony so very special!

    Mark was a wonderful officiant! He took the time to meet with us, get to know us, and discuss the kind of ceremony we wanted to create. He guided us through all aspects of the ceremony, from the content to logistics. Mark was respectful of our preferences and our vision for the day. We ended up with a ceremony that felt personalized to us as a couple and true to who we are. We received SO many compliments from guests who were moved during the ceremony, saying that it was unique, warm, and personal. We recommend him highly!

    My husband and I cannot say enough wonderful things about Mark! We were referred to him by a friend who also used One Heart for their wedding ceremony and from our first meeting he was a joy to work with. He took so much time and effort to ensure that he really got to know us and the type of ceremony we wanted. Although our ceremony took place at our venue, my husband and I are both Catholic and so we did want a touch of religion present in the ceremony. Mark did a wonderful job of executing a ceremony that was truly a reflection of ourselves. We received so many compliments from our guests throughout the cocktail hour and reception. Thank you Mark for all you did in making our wedding day so special!

    We decided Mark was for us within our first conversation, he is attentive, professional and we are excited to start the planning process of our ceremony for next year! We come from Catholic and Christian backgrounds and knew an interfaith minister would be the best of both worlds while keeping to our own idea of what our ceremony should look like.

    Mark was an absolute joy to work with! We loved him. He made our ceremony so beautiful and simple yet very personalized. When I glanced at our guests they had huge smiles on their faces and seemed very into our ceremony. That's how you know we had a great officiant. Each time we met he made us feel so comfortable and really listened to our opinions. Thanks so much for making this an easy process!

    My wife and I were married 8/26/17 at the Ink48 Hotel in NYC with Norma officiating. We chose her because we felt very comfortable with her right away. You can tell she really enjoys what she does and genuinely cared about getting to know us. The ceremony she wrote was very personalized and moving. Our guests all commented what a beautiful ceremony it was. The perfect day and Norma was a big part of it!
