It's believed by many that we are all born with a special purpose, or gift, that is to be used for the greater good of human beings. Mark is the epitome of utilizing the talents that God blessed him with. I can't imagine having a more wonderful conductor, guide, and parishioner of our wedding day service on a rainy, chilly December day in Central Park. We will never be able to thank Mark enough in words but I know the blessings he will receive for his wonderful services will certainly go a long way in doing so. Thank you Mark.
Norma was a wonderful officiant and she made our wedding truly special and memorable. We were looking for someone who we could trust and feel comfortable with to perform our wedding. From day one, she was responsive and took the time to chat with us to get to know us. She incorporated everything that we asked for and plus some of her wonderful touch to the ceremony. Our families loved how adorable and enthusiastic she was, and we cannot thank her enough for everything she did for us. We recommend giving Norma from One Heart a call!
Our original officiant bailed out three weeks before the wedding. As you can imagine, we were in a panic mode as time is of the essence and we don't know the availability of other officiants with short notice. Then Norma came along and she rescued us. Norma is so warm, professional and gracious. Our wedding ceremony was so beautiful and our guests complimented us about it. It seemed as if Norma have known us for a long time. I couldn't be any happier for such a memorable and loving wedding ceremony. Thank you Norma for being our officiant. You did a marvelous job!
We had a great experience working with Norma as our officiant. From the start of the process, she was easy to work with, listened to our ideas and wrote a beautiful ceremony that captured us as a couple. We received many compliments from our guests saying what a beautiful ceremony it was and what a wonderful job Norma did. Highly recommended.
We had a wonderful fall wedding back in October and Mark was absolutely the BEST!!!! I first saw Mark when he officiated my cousin's wedding a couple of years back. When it was my turn to get married, he was the first person that came to mind. We reached out to him and never even thought of having someone else officiate the wedding. He is so sincere and walks through the entire process with you. He advises you of things you didn't even think of so you are well prepared for the day of the wedding. My husband and I are different religions and he had great suggestions for the ceremony and it worked out beautiful. The ceremony was exactly what we were looking for and couldn't have asked for more. We are so thankful for him and so happy he made our special day a memorable experience.
We had the pleasure of having Mark Giller officiate our ceremony on August 20, 2016. Mark took the time to get to know us and was able to personalize our wedding so eloquently. We immediately felt comfortable working with Mark from our first conversation on the phone. After meeting in person, we felt a connection and knew he was the one who we wanted to marry us. We had over 200 guests at the Mandarin Oriental New York, and just about every one made it a point to comment on how beautiful and personalized our ceremony was. We feel truly fortunate to have met Mark. He captured our feelings, incorporated our families, and added immensely to the best day of our life. For the wonderful memories we have, we are so grateful. Bruce and John
As soon as we met Mark for the first time we felt so comfortable with him. He was so kind and friendly and very thorough and professional. He helped us bring our Irish heritage into the ceremony in a very special way that included both our Irish Moms! They loved that they were part of our ceremony. All our family and friends loved how we included my 13 yr old daughter in our special day. We loved Mark's suggestions on how to include her in the ceremony and made her feel so special! We definitely made the right decision choosing Mark at One Heart Personalized Ceremonies for our officiant. Erin & Chris 9/24/16
Norma really took the time to get to know us and gave great suggestions for the ceremony. She captured our spirit during a very personal ceremony. She was a support throughout the entire process!
Norma was AMAZING. When my husband proposed to me, we quickly chose Norma to officiate our ceremony. From day one, she made us feel comfortable and listened carefully to our vision for our wedding. She took the time to get to know us and used what she learned to help create the perfect ceremony. In addition to creating the perfect ceremony, Norma took the time to collaborate with our venue and band to make sure everyone was on the same page. All of our wedding guests, could not believe how PERFECT the ceremony was and how wonderful Norma was. We are so happy that Norma helped us start our life as a married couple. We highly recommend that you give Norma a call; you will not regret it. Thank you.
Norma came highly recommended to my husband and I. I can see why! She is personable, accommodating and lovely! She took the time to get to know my husband and I and make our ceremony special for all involved. Many of our guests commented on the fact that it was the nicest ceremonies that they had been to. Thank you Norma!
Mark was incredible! We very much enjoyed our meetings with him on a personal and professional level; he's funny, calm, and makes you feel comfortable. He's very easy to talk to and open up to. Extremely organized and trustworthy. Always accommodating to our schedules and is flexible for meetings (he met us at 9:30pm on a Wednesday because we were so busy) . He got to know us both as a couple and individually and used that to deliver a thoughtful, personalized, funny, and truly special ceremony that was so "us". My friends and family kept coming up to me at the reception telling me how much they enjoyed Mark and the content of our ceremony and we couldn't agree more. Mark, our sincere thanks and appreciation!
Mark was absolutely FANTASTIC! Our ceremony was so personal, everyone came up to us after saying it was the best one they have ever been too. He helped make the day so special and we can't thank him enough.
Norma truly captured our spirit and performed an amazingly personal and inspiring ceremony. She was a support throughout the entire process, providing insight and guidance while also listening to our ideas. Highly Recommended!
Mark officiated our wedding a little over a month ago and we couldn't have been more pleased with the ceremony he crafted for us. It was unique and personal to us, and he incorporated beautiful quotes and touching anecdotes. He was supremely easy to work with through the whole process from start to finish and was very laid back about us making some last-minute changes. I love that he gave us a preview of the ceremony he wrote and yet he still managed to sneak in some surprises during the ceremony that I found incredibly moving and meaningful. I couldn't recommend Mark more highly!
Using Mark as our officiant was the best decision that we made when looking for officiant for our ceremony. He is very personable, friendly, and cares so much about creating a ceremony to fit what the couple is looking for. He took the time out to meet up with us and present to us the ceremony in which he wrote before the wedding and asked if there was anything that we did not like because he would of changed it. He even helped make our vows perfect! Mark helped to create such an intimate and personal ceremony which was exactly what we wanted. I highly recommend any couple looking for an officiant to use him, he is the BEST!
We had Mark officiate our September wedding at a vineyard on the North Fork of Long Island. From the first time we had a call with him we knew we wanted him for the wedding. We worked together both in-person and via FaceTime and Mark put together an absolutely amazing personalized ceremony for us. We would have to say he was one of our favorite vendors of the entire wedding planning process, and one in which we had 100% confidence. And Mark did not disappoint. We would HIGHLY recommend Mark to officiate - we could not have picked a nicer or better guy!
Mark performed our wedding ceremony at a vineyard on the North Fork of Long Island. He put together a perfect ceremony specific for what we were looking for. We met with Mark several times leading up to the wedding and he really took the time to speak with us and get to know us. Mark even ran through the entire ceremony draft with us prior to the wedding and made sure we loved it, and we did. In addition to very thoughtful planning, he performed the ceremony itself beautifully. We loved how he engaged all of our guests, got the parents involved like we wanted, and figured out just how to mix the right amount of energy, reverence, and sincerity. On top of that, he performed a special ritual we requested and made a few adjustments for us on very short notice. We would recommend Mark for anyone looking for a memorable and thoughtful wedding ceremony in the NYC/LI/NJ area.
Mark did an amazing job officiating our special day. He considered every memory we shared and carefully wove these moments into his comments during the ceremony. We highly recommend him.
Norma moutal was the one that officiated our ceremony and she was absolutely a pleasure to work with .She made our ceremony personal to our needs. Our wedding on 9/10/16 she was there for us throw out the process with encouraging words. We are very pleased with her every one should have an experience with there officiant like this.
We are so glad that we put our trust in Mark Giller to craft a poignant, individualized, and non-religious wedding ceremony for us. My husband, Greg, was the one who first discovered Mark and vetted him on the phone. When he told me about Mark, he said I would love him. We set up a meeting with him in the lobby of The Waldorf. As soon as I met him, I understood what Greg meant: Mark is warm, personable, and has an amazingly rich speaking voice. He asked us about ourselves, and how we met. And we spoke at length about how we wanted to structure our ceremony. He gave us great pointers and raised good questions. For example, he asked us if we wanted "God" to be mentioned. He also asked if we wanted to incorporate any symbolic rituals, like a wine blessing to represent the unity of families. All of his suggestions showed that he was an experienced officiant at navigating non-religious ceremonies and all of the potential stumbling blocks that arise when the bride and groom come from differing religious backgrounds. We signed a contract with One Heart Personalized Ceremonies without meeting anyone else, confident that we would be in good hands with Mark. Mark then asked us to separately fill out a comprehensive questionnaire. It was lengthy, so it took a LONG time to fill out, but it was worth it. When we met with Mark a few weeks before the wedding, he read the text he had put together for our ceremony. The words fit us like a glove. We left feeling ecstatic and comforted. Our ceremony on the wedding day was magical. What we wanted was a bespoke ceremony, and that is exactly what we got. We could not have envisioned a more perfectly tailored ceremony. Thank you, Mark. We will forever think of you with gratitude and fondness.
We were married July 30, 2016 and the most important detail of our day was our ceremony. We wanted it to be non-traditional and really reflect on the love we felt for each other as a couple, our families and our communities. After speaking to several officiants, we knew immediately as soon as we spoke with Norma that we had found the right person to stand with us on such a special day. She wrote such a beautiful, unique ceremony and listened very carefully to our needs and wishes. She incorporated everything we wanted as well as came up with several wonderful ideas as well. We are both so happy that we decided to have Norma officiate. She is a caring, kind, loving person and you can tell she was just born to do this type of thing. It was a beautiful ceremony. We also got to meet Mark because we went to a pre marital counseling session which was very helpful. We would have gone more often except our schedules did not allow us the chance to. If you are wondering if you are making a good choice by booking with them, don't hesitate. Norma will make sure your ceremony is special, unique, and personalized to you. Thank you so much for everything!
Norma did a wonderful job for our wedding! We spoke with her multiple times leading up to the big day and the ceremony was tailored perfectly for us. We couldn't be happier and we highly recommend her!
Norma performed a beautiful ceremony at our wedding. It was exactly what we asked for tailored to us. We truly were no disappointed and I would gladly recommend Norma to any one for their special event. Thank you for making our day about us and very special Norma. You are truly a special person with a special talent.
One Heart Ceremonies is the real deal. Norma was our officiant at our wedding earlier this month (August 2016) and she is both professional and warm. She worked hard to make our ceremony memorable and personal. She also did a lovely job of incorporating a tribute to my mother, who has passed, in a way that paid homage to her memory but still kept the overall tone joyful. She had a lot of different recommendations on how we could make our ceremony unique - which we greatly appreciated. We would most certainly recommend Norma and One Heart Ceremonies!
The ceremony was the most beautiful moment of our wedding. The fact that mark took the time to meet us twice in NYC before we got married and build a repor with us was so obvious to our guests and made it that much more meaningful. He picked a poem for my cousins to read and people messaged me after asking for a copy because it was so meaningful. I love my husband and Mark was able to build a ceremony that was both personal to us, and also lovely for our guests. We consider him a friend we love you - Jon and Jenny
