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!

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. 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...

When preparing for my big day, the one thing that I feared the most was having either the officiant "steal the show" or completely mess up... which I have seen both happen. We 100% lucked out when we choose Norma. She was a consummate professional and surprised me how easy she... Read More made the entire process. From our first consultation to the day of, she made us feel at ease and even helped me with my minor freakout before the main event.

We had the pleasure of working with Mark on our wedding ceremony and it was perfect! He listened to what we wanted and he made it so personal.

Our original officiant bailed out three weeks before the wedding.
