My husband and I recently got married on 11-12-16 and used Diane as our officiant! I cannot put into words how thankful we are that we decided to use her! Throughout the entire process, Diane spoke to us to create a ceremony that was personal and customized to reflect both of us, our vision for the ceremony, and our values; rather than a "cookie cutter" ceremony. Our ceremony was extremely personalized and guests could not stop talking about how warm and personable Diane was. Besides the fact that her service was beautiful, Diane is just a such a wonderful human being - kind, compassionate, and caring! It was extremely cold on our wedding day and Diane even handed me her beautiful scarf to warm up after hours of picture taking prior to the ceremony starting! Would recommend her without any hesitation! ~ Lydia and Chris Logan

All I can say is amazing! Bob Pileggi was our officiant. He was so prompt with replying to emails. He allowed us to create a beautiful and personal ceremony from scratch. He was so helpful and guided us along the way.

During the ceremony Bob kept everything so organized and we were to relaxed knowing Bob was taking care of us!

If you want a ceremony that is unique and perfect to you as a couple, look no further than Journeys of the Heart. And Bob Pileggi is amazing!! You will not be disappointed!!

We selected Journey of the Heart after searching for a non denominational officiant. First I spoke with Diane who was quick to respond with who was available on our date. We chose Gabby Kaplan Meyer. She was awesome. My husband and I wanted a very personal, heartfelt non religious ceremony....that was also SHORT. From our first conversation with Gabby, she completely understood what we wanted. My husband likes to say Gabby F&*%KING crushed it. We received so many compliments from our guests. She really added a special touch to our day.

I worked with Kelly Fuddy from the Lancaster PA area. She was absolutely amazing. We met in person first before we booked her because we wanted to make sure we made a connection with her. As soon as we started to talk, I knew I wanted to book her. She was the sweetest woman ever. We talked about the ceremony and what we wanted. I had some suggestions that Kelly never had done before and she was all for it. I loved how she let us kind of create our own wedding ceremony instead of the typical ones.
She was always so nice when planning our ceremony and would always let us have a say in things. She sent our outline of what the ceremony would be like just to make sure it is what we wanted.
We wanted our ceremony to be VERY personal and she made it exactly how we wanted it. She said a back story of us and even threw in some jokes throughout which make us and our guests laugh. I even had 1 group of guests come up to me at the reception saying, "I have been to weddings over the past 40 years and your ceremony was by far the best one".
The one thing that I loved about Kelly is how professional and personable she was. I felt like she was someone that I could just have coffee with and chit chat with. After the ceremony was over, she gave our coordinator a packet of things which told us the next steps to do (name change, etc). She also printed out everything that she read at the ceremony which I absolutely loved because during the ceremony I was so excited that at times I forgot the ceremony was actually going on haha. I only worked with Kelly from Journeys of the Heart but I am sure everyone else at the company is just as amazing. I could not recommend them enough! She was such an honor to work with.

We used Journeys of the Heart - specifically Bob for our wedding in Philadelphia. It was such a wonderful experience and I have to say I think it was my favorite part of the planning process. He gave us questions to fill out about each other (not showing the other person of course) and crafted a wonderful, personal ceremony. He has an extensive amount of resources that help you develop the feel of your ceremony but still make it your own. Our guests really loved it and we have gotten so many compliments. Bob was very quick with his communication and gave us all the direction we needed. I cannot recommend Bob more - he really made our day so very special!

When we were planning our wedding, I had an exact picture of what our ceremony would be like, very heartfelt and also a little silly, something to capture us as a couple and our relationship as a whole. Finding the perfect person to help us create this without charging us an arm and a leg was the tough part, until we met Eve Wenger at a bridal show! Eve was amazing through the entire planning process; she made sure that our ceremony was exactly what we wanted, no matter how many changes or edits we sent her. Our guests are still talking about our ceremony and how personalized it was and how it beautifully represented us as a couple. I would recommend Eve over and over again to anyone who is in need of an Officiant.

We had Jim Haley from Journeys of the Heart officiate our wedding in Bethlehem, PA on 9/24/16. Jim was fantastic, from the first point of contact, right through the wedding day. We chose Jim because we wanted a nondenominational ceremony, but with some elements of religion, and we found that Jim's background in the Catholic church provided that perfect balance. Jim spent a lot of time getting to know us and our story, and he crafted a highly personalized ceremony--numerous guests told us it was the most personal, most beautiful wedding ceremony they had ever attended. He was very communicative and organized, and helped make the ceremony flawless. We would highly recommend Journeys of the Heart, and especially Jim Haley as an officiant!

My husband and I are very spiritual people but not necessarily super religious. We were also worried about someone being awkward during the most important part of our day because we knew we weren't going to get married in a church but we still wanted a special and meaningful ceremony. Susanne did such an incredible job. Better than we could have ever dreamed. We went back and forth for a while until we got the vows and pieces of writing customized just for us. We received so many compliments on how beautifully she spoke on behalf of us. She brought so much joy and positivity to our ceremony and made our wedding video that much better with her beautiful words. Well worth every penny.

We used Gabrielle Kaplan-Mayer as our officiant for our wedding in August 2016. We found her to be extremely friendly, easy to work with, and understanding of our special requests. My husband is Jewish and I am non-denominational, but we wanted to honor Jewish traditions. Gabby understood this and was able to incorporate some of the traditions and even deliver a prayer in Hebrew. In the run up to our wedding, Gabby was responsive, accommodating, and even understood how much we wanted to have a hand in our vows. Having said this, she gave us a lot of examples we could use, formats we could amend, and tips to make our ceremony special. She is an expert in ensuring your ceremony is not the same as everyone else's. I would highly recommend using her to make your day special.

When my husband and I got engaged and started planning our wedding, we hit a bit of a roadblock when it came to the ceremony. He grew up Catholic, my mom’s side of the family is Jewish, and I personally am an atheist. We wanted to honor our family traditions and heritage without having a religious ceremony. At the recommendation of our event planner, we visited the Journeys of the Heart website and found Gabby’s profile…we thought she would be a perfect match for us! She was able to meet with us on short notice one weekend when we happened to be in the Philly area, and our in-person meeting confirmed just how awesome she was!

In the months leading up to our wedding, Gabby was so helpful in guiding us through the ceremony planning process! She was always there with great suggestions on how to combine meaningful Catholic and Jewish traditions for our ceremony without being overtly religious. We provided her with a few details about us (how we met, what we love most about each other, etc) which she crafted into the perfect love story to capture our relationship! We received many compliments from our guests on how beautiful our ceremony was – even our most stoic groomsman said it brought tears to his eyes! Thank you, Gabby, for delivering a ceremony more amazing than my husband and I ever could’ve imagined!
