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... Read More 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... Read More 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!

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... Read More 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.

Thank you Mark for all you did in making our wedding day so special!

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... Read More 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... Read More 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!

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... Read More looking for.

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... Read More 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.

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.
