My husband and I were married last weekend at the Highlands Country Club by Norma Mortal from One Heart ceremonies. From our first meeting with Norma our nerves and excitement were meet with a calm reassurrance from Norma that she would create a personalized and unique ceremony that encaptured our relationship. Through our meetings, emails and phone calls Norma was consummate professional with her many years of knowledge and experience being apparently obvious. We were amazed at the personalized and touching ceremony she created for us which includes a special roll for my now step-daughter and other family members. We never could have imagined how perfect it was. Thank you Norma for making our special day that much more meaningful and unforgettable.
If we could give Mark 1,000,000 stars we would! We had no idea what to expect when choosing an officiant, and as a couple of mixed faith we did not want to base our ceremony around one specific religion. Finding Mark was such a blessing… He not only worked with us for countless hours to personalize our ceremony but truly made us feel like he cared about us as individuals. All of this came through and was so evident on our big day… Mark's ceremony was beautiful, heartfelt and perfectly portrayed our relationship to our loved ones that were there with us. He helped us to come together as a couple before our union and his beautiful words truly made our day so special. Everyone just raved about the ceremony and Marks overall demeanor. We are certain that our relationship with Mark will extend much further than being just our officiant, as it truly feels like he is now part of the family! If you are looking for the perfect person to marry you (and so much more) look no further… Mark is your guy!
We had the pleasure of working with Mark and he truly did a wonderful job. He was detailed, thorough and professional, yet personable, engaging and exceeded our expectations. His writing was heartfelt and beautiful as if he had known us throughout the course of our entire relationship; he had us all laughing and crying. He facilitated a totally customized and original wedding ceremony and we could not be happier with the outcome or recommend him highly enough!
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!
Mark is the best. full stop. He married my husband and I October 28th and it was better than I imagined. From the beginning he was thoughtful and listened to what we wanted and offered up great suggestions when we weren't sure which way to go. He made sure everyone was included. Our ceremony was thoughtful, funny and full of love. We couldn't have asked for anything more. Thank you Mark!!! <3 Nicole and Steve
When my fiance and I got engaged, one big question for us was the officiant. Neither of us are religious, but also didn’t have a friend that seemed like the right pick. After having phone interviews with a few different officiants, we met with Mark from One Heart Personalized Ceremonies and immediately knew he was the right choice. Mark is warm, genuine and has a great sense of humor. He truly tried to get know us as a couple (and individually) and from the questionnaire we filled out (which was really enlightening!) to the photos he requested, you can tell Mark takes each ceremony he writes very seriously. When Mark read us his draft of the ceremony a month before our wedding, my fiance and I both cried. It was heartfelt, personal and perfect for us, we had no changes! On our wedding day, Mark was punctual and in great spirits and it really came through in the ceremony. All of our guests kept commenting (and still do to this day), on how warm and sincere he was. He felt like an old friend who felt blessed to just be part of our big day. Having Mark write us a personal ceremony was worth every penny and we wouldn’t hesitate to recommend One Heart Personalized Ceremonies to anyone looking for an officiant!
We got married in September and Mark was our officiant. From the very first meeting with Mark we felt that it was a match. We spoke to several officiants before on the phone and none made us feel the same. We were walking back home after that first meeting and I remember telling my future husband how relaxed I felt - connected emotionally and understood as a human being. We trusted Mark with our Ceremony and we were not disappointed. As we keep joking - we still do not remember most of it because of the nerves, but on a serious note everything went great - a combination of traditional civil ceremony with thoroughly thought through and added cultural traditions of our own (me being Russian Orthodox and my husband Russian Jewish), a lot of our guests mentioned how much they liked it. Thank you, Mark!
My husband and I were married at the end of September and Norma was our officiant. We could not have asked for a better officiant, our guests are STILL talking about how incredible our ceremony was! We are an interfaith couple and Norma new exactly how to include things from both faiths, without making it uncomfortable for either of us or our families. She even through in a couple of surprises that really were so special to my husband and I. Norma is so kind and warm and a pleasure to work with.
We highly recommend One Heart Personalized Ceremonies. Norma took the time to learn about us and skillfully incorporated those details into our service. They live up to their name, a truly personalized ceremony.
Norma married us in August in Poughkeepsie. She is a very sweet woman and really had a heartfelt approach and genuine interest in our story, relationship, and ceremony. She was very knowledgeable and helped us craft a custom ceremony to meet all of our needs and what we were looking for. She had great ideas of certain rituals and readings to include and was able to combine traditions from our mixed faith backgrounds. We were looking for a very personalized ceremony and she nailed it. She even asked for a photograph of us to look at while writing our ceremony. Her fee was very reasonable for a custom ceremony especially compared to other officiants we found in our search. We highly recommend her!
Norma was amazing to work with for our wedding. We had very easy communication and she had great suggestions and recommendations for our outdoor ceremony. Norma really helped make it beautiful and exactly the way we envisioned it would be. Thank you very much!!!
My husband and i were married in early November at the highlands country club and Mark was our officiant. He was so warm and such a pleasure to work with. From the very first meeting we knew we wanted Mark to officiate our marriage. Mark made the whole process seamless for us and his words truly described my husband and i's love story. Thank you Mark, our ceremony was beautiful!
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!
Norma was an absolute delight to work with! Our wedding ceremony was beautiful and she was perfect. She covered everything we had requested in our meetings and was quick in responding and extremely helpful in the whole process. We loved working with Norma and would highly recommend!
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 at the Powelton Country Club in Newburgh on 10/21/17. Norma was our officiant and she did an AMAZING job! We were so happy with the personalized ceremony she wrote for us! She took the time over the last year leading up to the wedding to really get to know both of us! By the time the big day arrived it felt like we have been close friends for years! She is a true professional and I would HIGHLY recommend One Heart Ceremonies for whatever special day you are planning!
My Husband and I loved Norma!! She was so helpful and made us feel so calm and comfortable. From our first meeting till our wedding day, she was always there to help us! Our ceremony was so beautiful and personal which is what we wanted! So happy we chose One Heart Personalized Ceremonies!! Xoxo
Just had my wedding and I can honestly say the ceremony was the best part. Mark did an amazing job conducting the ceremony. He took out many hours of his time to answer any questions I had a made a beautiful ceremony for my wife and I. Have to use Mark if you want an experience that makes you and your significant other feel special.
Mark performed our ceremony on 7/22/2017 and he did an amazing job. He took the time to really understand what values are most important to my husband and me. He really listened and was able to convey who we are in our ceremony. All of our guests commented that the vibe of the ceremony truly matched our personalities. Mark was on time, professional and a pleasure to work with. I would highly recommend One Heart Ceremonies.
Thank you One Heart Personalized Ceremonies and Mark Giller for a wonderful ceremony, it was truly personalized, touching and beyond our expectations. Working with Mark was an amazing experience, from start to finish - it was very professional, yet very personal. We have heard from our guests that this was one of the best ceremonies they have ever witnessed. Once again thank you Mark for helping us make our dream come true!!! Best, Marijela & Steven
We had the pleasure of having Norma Moutal officiate our wedding on July 8, 2017. Norma put together a wonderful ceremony that perfectly reflected our relationship. All of our family and friends raved about Norma afterwards and stated that she put together a very memorable ceremony. She is truly a pleasure to work with. We knew right away from our first meeting with her that we would want her to officiate our wedding. She is very warm and easy to talk too , and had great ideas on how to incorporate both our faiths into our ceremony. If you are looking for a beautiful ceremony that is tailored to your relationship, don't hesitate in booking with One Heart Ceremonies!
Mark officiated our wedding in May, and we could not have been happier! Mark was wonderful to work with, from the preparation to the ceremony. He put so much thought and effort into the process that the end result was absolutely incredible. It was really important to us to have the ceremony symbolize love and he was able to capture this beautifully. His personal and heartfelt approach set the tone for our entire wedding as guests came up to us to share how unique our ceremony was.
Mark did an amazing job from preparation to the ceremony. A pleasure to work with and i highly recommend him. Very nice and professional and nearly every guest commented to me on how great of a job he did. Thanks again Mark!
We had the absolute pleasure and honor of having Mark Giller from One Heart Personalized Ceremonies as our wedding officiant on June 24th, 2017. After attending several weddings over the past year where people used their friends as their officiants, it became very clear to us that we wanted an expert. My husband and I wanted a planned and professional yet emotional ceremony. We first looked to our venue’s recommended vendor list for officiants and there was One Heart Personalized Ceremonies at the very top. After doing some research, it became very apparent that we wanted to pursue something with Mark. Not only were the reviews extremely positive but after our first meeting with him we could tell instantly that he would be a great choice. He really took the time to talk to us and get to know us as a couple and individuals. Over the next 9 months, he had each of us fill out extensive questionnaires separately without showing each other. This really helped Mark get to know us on a personal level and prepare the most beautiful ceremony for us. He was detailed, enthusiastic, passionate, and eloquent, while professional, personable, and engaging. Mark exceeded our expectations. His writing was heartfelt and beautiful as if he had known us throughout the course of our entire relationship; he had us all laughing and crying. All of our friends and family raved about our ceremony and many even thought that Mark had known us a long time. Mark facilitated a totally customized and original wedding ceremony and we could not be happier with the outcome or recommend him and One Heart Personalized Ceremonies highly enough!
The response on repeat during & after our wedding was that it was the most personal and heartfelt wedding that person had attended. A large part of that was due to Mark, who really spends time getting to know you and writing something extremely fitted to you as a couple. He is a wonderfully nice and intelligent man who we spent s lively time preparing with for our big day, and who had many great suggestions for gestures, rituals, and readings we could add to the ceremony. These people really stand out, and could not be happier about our experience because they go above and beyond. I can't recommend them enough if you're looking for something really special.
