My now husband and I first met with Diane Smith-Hoban about 10 months before our actual wedding day. She was the first and only officiant we met with - we knew from that first meeting how much we both liked her. She is incredibly personable and made us feel very much at ease; she makes you feel like your wedding day and ceremony are top priority. Diane wrote a beautiful ceremony for us that included our love story, our family, and our daughter. After our ceremony, almost all of our guests commented on how wonderful Diane was, how much they loved her, and how incredibly beautiful and personal our ceremony was. I would recommend Diane to anyone planning a wedding!

Journeys of the Heart ended up officiating our wedding as part of a happy accident. With only 48 hours before our ceremony at Please Touch Museum in front of 225 people, our original officiant essentially left us at the altar. We found out just after midnight on the Friday morning before our Saturday wedding. In a panic, I sent an e-mail out to Journeys of the Heart with the hopes that they could perform a small miracle.

Not 10 minutes after I sent my e-mail, did I receive a response from Diane, telling me to rest easy, I was in good hands, and I would be taken care of. Thanks to Journeys of the Heart, we had lined up our new officiant between 12:00 AM and 10:00 AM on Friday, the day before our wedding.

Diane's quick action and Susan's flexibility even allowed for us to have the pleasure of meeting Susan on Friday evening at our rehearsal dinner. She took the time to come meet us so we could put a face to the name, and so we could meet the person who would be a part of such a momentous occasion in our lives. Susan was incredibly sweet, understanding, flexible, and she helped guide us toward a more well-rounded ceremony, as we had to write our own ceremony thanks to the inaction of a company whose name will not be mentioned. Journeys of the Heart helped wipe the slate clean of the awful preceding company to ensure that we could move on with the rest of the planning for our big day.

Susan's experience during the ceremony shone through, she helped guide us where to be and when, without ever making it apparent that this was a spur-of-the-moment incident. We were completely in her hands and she confidently and flawlessly delivered. We cannot thank Journeys of the Heart enough for their prompt action and amazing professionalism in such a pinch!

I will replay the ceremony over and over for year to come it was so touching and absolutely perfect!!!

I read the draft Bob Pileggi created and I thought it was great stuff, but his delivery of the ceremony- the humor and the pauses he took at all the right times, it just hit the nail on the head.

He was the absolutely the best, most throughout, attentive and professional vendor I worked with for my wedding. Out of everyone he responded to me emails most quickly, most thoughtfully and provided the most helpful and timely information. If only all the vendors could be more like Bob Pileggi!

Surrounded by family and friends, a cloudy, overcast, humid day in August greeted us on our wedding day, none of that seemed to matter. What did matter was the beautiful ceremony by Laura Ford who joined our two families as one. The service was personal, designed with the two of us in mind. Laura listened to our story, and together we created a ceremony that was romantic, funny and even had the most stoic family members shedding a tear. As we greeted our guests after the wedding every single one commented and are still commenting on how truly special our ceremony was. Every bride and groom dreams of a wedding that they will remember forever, our ceremony will last in our hearts always - and when was the last time anyone remembered what was said at the ceremony - people are still quoting ours.

My wife and I had Bob Pileggi as our officiant for our wedding. We couldn't have been happier to have Bob play such an integral role in such a special day for us. The amount of compliments we received on Bob's behalf were staggering. Many people said how great he did, and others were shocked to hear that we just recently met him. I would recommend Bob for anyone's wedding as you're guaranteed to get top notch service, and a class act of an officiant.

If you are looking for the most unique, and personal ceremony, Bob Pileggi at journeys of the heart is the way to go.

My husband, Kris, and I weren't really sure what kind of ceremony we were looking for, but we knew we didn't want it long and stuffy.

Bob was beyond helpful and knowledgeable. He knew more about wedding ceremonies, and various traditions than anyone I have ever met. When we met with him he asked us a series of questions to get to know us and to get a genuine feel for what we were looking for.

The outcome was unreal. It was so personal to is and our relationship. He really took into consideration all of the things we said. The ceremony was also quite interactive for the guests as well.

I had several people come up to me and compliment how special the ceremony was. I even had one guest tell me that if she and her husband ever have another wedding they was him to be apart of it.

Bob is incredibly warm hearted and makes you feel the sincere happiness he has for you and your new beginning.

Gabrielle Kaplan-Mayer was our officiant and she was absolutely amazing! From our first meeting until after the ceremony, Gabby helped us with anything any everything we needed. We have received sooo many compliments on how absolutely beautiful the ceremony was. And I absolutely agree with them. From start to finish, Gabby customized our ceremony and told our loved ones about our journey as a couple from the beginning. She was always available through email or phone call. I could not be more pleased with how the ceremony turned out!! Thanks for everything, Journeys of the Heart!!

Our ceremony was my favorite part of the wedding day, and Diane deserves much of the credit for making that happen. My husband and I are interfaith, and we were worried about representing our faiths equally, especially since we've been to a limited number of weddings and didn't have much experience to go on. Diane was incredible. She provided us with a ton of resources and crafted a beautiful wedding ceremony. She was very available throughout the planning process. It also wasn't a problem that we live across the country; we first "met" on Skype, emailed frequently, and she was able to work around my schedule and meet in person when I was in PA. She wrote a sermon/ "love story" about the two of us that was detailed and heartfelt; my family members and friends said that their favorite part of the ceremony was hearing our story. She was also a huge help at the rehearsal; I was very stressed out with last-minute preparations and trying to wrangle lots of out-of-town guests and she jumped in and handled everything so well and made both my husband and I feel calmer and more comfortable. I should also note that the wedding planner at our venue had heard of Diane and knew about her reputation for being a top-rate officiant. I would recommend Diane to anyone, but particularly to interfaith couples and couples who don't already have a rabbi/pastor/reverend but want a warm and personal experience for their wedding day. Diane is organized and knowledgeable, she speaks beautifully, but above all, she is so very kind. We are lucky to have found her. Thank you, Diane!

So pleased with Journeys of the Heart and would recommend them to anyone. My now husband and I knew that we wanted a heartfelt, non religious ceremony, so we found Journeys of the Heart online and found great reviews for Diane. After chatting on Skype and then meeting in person, we knew that Diane would be a great fit for what we were looking for. She was amazing throughout the whole process - learning about our story, creating a ceremony flow that included every option we could think of, and then helping us tailor the flow to get just what we wanted. On the day of, I felt completely at ease and Diane made the ceremony a memorable one. So many guests came up to us after, saying how much they loved her. Thanks Diane and Journeys of the Heart!!

Jim Haley helped make our daughter's wedding day even more amazing. We received comments from so many people about the beautiful and very personal and intimate ceremony. Initially, we were so worried that we wouldn’t be able to find someone who could honor the religious differences and create a special ceremony, and then we found Journeys of the Heart.
Jim captured the spirit of our young couple, honored their religious traditions, and also helped to provide a special part in the ceremony in memory of the groom's Dad in such a touching and sincere way.
Jim Haley's attention to detail, professionalism, organization, and wonderful engaging personality gave a very special feeling to the wedding ceremony and helped to make the celebration so meaningful. We are so thankful to have found Journey's of the Heart and especially for Jim Haley.

I have to say that I am VERY happy with using Journey's of the Heart. They were so professional and walked us through all of the ceremony before hand. Bob Pileggi was our officiant for our wedding and he was so nice to us, and wanted our wedding to be the best ever. He went over some of the things that we could do to personalize it. He also took the time to listen to our story and was actually very interested in it. He was glad that we were finally able to get married after 16 years of being together. I have to say that I was nervous about saying my vows, due to "stage fright" but when I explained my concerns to Bob, he was able to put me at ease. I would definitely recommend him and his company to all my friends and family. Believe me, you won't be disappointed. He also takes the time to communicate afterwards with you, to see how things are going with you and your husband / wife. He doesn't forget about you after the ceremony is over, which I like. Thanks again Bob Pileggi, for a great Ceremony!!

I had a lovely experience with this company. When I first inquired about working with them I had a lovely conversation with someone on the phone and after hearing my wants and needs recommended someone for me right on the spot.

I worked with Gabrielle Kaplan-Mayer, she was friendly and had a lot great ideas. Our ceremony was truly customized to meet our needs. I liked that was I read through the wording of every portion and edit it to be exactly what we wanted.

We had a rehearsal the night before which made things very easy and run smoothly on our wedding day. She was able to convey the feelings that my husband and I share through readings and her own thoughts. Thank you Gabrielle!

Our officiant, Diane, was amazing! From the first meeting, she worked closely with us to make sure that our ceremony reflected our unique mix of traditions and our similar values.

I just want to thank Susanne from the bottom of my heart for the beautiful and perfect job she did with our ceremony. From our first introductory phone call to her congratulatory hug after the ceremony, she was accommodating, kind-hearted, prompt, helpful, and just plain wonderful. As I'm sure she noticed, the ceremony was incredibly emotional for the two of us, as well as our families and many guests. We received compliments from everyone regarding how unique, personal, and beautiful the ceremony was. They all commented on her calming demeanor and poise as well. It was such a pleasure working with her - we truly would not have been able to do it without her. The day felt like a whirlwind passing by, but there are moments from the ceremony that are frozen forever in my mind.

Tim was a great pleasure to work with from start to finish. At our first consultation he gave us the layout for our ceremony and allowed us to help design it as much as we wanted. Within a day of providing our information he had the first draft of our ceremony ready for our review. My now wife read it and cried instantly stating, "this is so beautiful, you have to read it". He delivered an amazing ceremony. It was very personal and yet had some traditional pieces that we both wanted. During the cocktail hour we received lots of compliments on the ceremony Tim created for us.

Tim was very professional and easy to work with. We would highly recommend him for your event. Thanks Tim!

Susan, from Journeys of the Heart, saved our wedding day when our original officiant did not show up. We called any officiant we could find once we discovered we had a no show. Susan arrived a mere 20 minutes after our call and gave us a beautiful ceremony. I highly recommend Journeys of the Heart!

We met Susanne from Journeys of the Heart at the Stroudsmoor bridal sampling and from that moment we knew she was the one who was going to officiate our wedding. When you talk to this amazing woman you will see what I mean.
We've gotten so many compliments on our ceremony. Every part of it was completely breath taking. We could not ask for anything more perfect than our ceremony was and we would recommend her to anyone who may be looking for an officiant. She will work with you and make the ceremony of your dreams actually come true.
Happy Wedding Planning to All!

Susanne Wilson was our officiant. My wife and I got married on October 19, 2013. We could not have been happier. She spent quality time with us before the wedding. Her response time was less then 24 hours if not sooner, depending on the topic. She had countless ideas. Susanne, was so patient with us and explained everything. When the day of the wedding came, not only was she kind, nurturing and warm to us, but to all who were present. We had an out door wedding and our friend's 15 yo daughter was doing the music. I had no idea how nervous she was until after when she said that Susanne helped her calm down and encouraged her. They had never met, but Susanne had a soothing presence about her that drew all to her. Everyone raved about the ceremony at the reception. They all stated they were prepared for a scripted ceremony, but this was one of the first ones they actually were attentive to. My wife and I are polar opposites. I very funny and laid back, my wife very serious. Susanne hit seriousness and humor. We could not have asked for anything more! I would love to get married over and over again to my wife and Susanne would always be the person we would choose to officiate!

Jim Rosengarden was by far the BEST officiant ever! At the rehearsal I was completely put at ease by his humor and calming nature. Many of the bridal party commented on him breaking the ice! He was extremely flexible and didn't mind emailing back and forth when changes arose. We had to tweak the ceremony because the bridal party was uneven, we added a coin exchange and we wanted a "Last Chance to Run" sign! He put all of this together for us. It was amazing seeing all of my visions be put into action. I must add more on his humor! If you want someone that jokes around...pick Jim. Thanks Jim! Can't wait for a baby blessing (not any time soon!). Thank you! Nikki & Ryan Gormley

We are so thankful we chose Bob Pileggi from Journeys of the Heart to officiate our wedding. As we don't belong to any particular church, we were a little worried that we wouldn't connect with a great officiant that could really make our wedding ceremony all that we hoped. Boy were we wrong! We heard back from JOTH in a timely fashion, and randomly chose Bob Pileggi as our officiant. He was perfect! Not only did he make everything so easy, he gave us lots of creative ideas to really personalize our ceremony- A day we'll never forget! Even our family & friends raved it was the best wedding ceremony they've attended. We can't thank you enough Bob- Journeys of the Heart is excellent!

My husband and I had David as the officiant at our wedding and we couldn't be happier. My husband is very picky and had already shot down another officiant we met with, so I was nervous of how our meeting with David would go. Well...I was worried for no reason. My husband loved David and everything went perfectly at our wedding. David was so kind and walked us through everything. He made us feel very comfortable and set the tone for an amazing evening. The process was so easy at Journeys of the Heart and I would recommend David to anyone!

We worked with Susanne Wilson and she made the ceremony experience so amazing. She really helped my husband and I reflect on the true meaning of the ceremony and helped us to enjoy the "process" (in which all brides knows can be stressful!). I cannot tell you how many compliments we recieved on our ceremony. We had laughter and tears and true engagement from all of our guests. We have been told by many guests that our ceremony was the best they had ever heard. Susanne made it so personal to us and it fit us so well! I wish I could give more than 5 stars!

Journeys of the Heart has a roster of officiants, and we chose Bob Pileggi because we were looking for someone non-denominational and fun to help us plan a non-religious, very personal ceremony. Bob did such a wonderful job -- he led us through the process without micromanaging, and he helped us create a ceremony that really reflected our personalities. We were planning the wedding long-distance, and Bob was available by Skype and by email whenever we had questions. Bob was also very reassuring on the big day, made sure all the details were taken care of, and managed the crowd and the ceremony with ease. We got so many compliments afterwards from people who said that it was the most moving, personal ceremony they had been to. We can't recommend him highly enough!

Susanne of Journeys of the Heart was my officiant for our wedding this past Sunday. I cannot say enough good things about her. It is a little overwhelming choosing from the list of officiants without knowing them personally, but as soon as we saw Susanne, my husband and I knew she would be perfect. We are a young couple whose work continued to get in the way of our communications with Susanne. She continued to reassure us that we were good on time and not to worry (which is so nice to hear while planning a wedding!). Susanne went above and beyond on my wedding day. Not only did she put together an incredible ceremony, but one of my bridesmaids had been frantic about her dress which continued to fall down before she walked. Susanne quickly altered the dress to accommodate the situation. Later, my husband told me that she did not hesitate to pre-read his vows to make sure that they were alright when he asked her to do so. Susanne has such a sweet, motherly, nurturing nature and that's exactly what we wanted. Our guests couldn't believe we didn't know her personally because she was so educated on our life and the names of family members. Our guests are still raving about her. I could continue to praise Susanne for hours, but I will end my review now in stating that I HIGHLY recommend using Susanne for your wedding! Thank you again Susanne and Journeys of the Heart for having such a wonderful officiant as part of your staff!

For our wedding ceremony, we chose to work with Journey of the Hearts; specifically, Bob Pileggi. We literally stumbled upon JOTH's serverices two weeks before the wedding (long story!). Below is a copy of the email I personally sent Bob, which hopefully is a testament to how wonderful it was to have been able to start our marriage with such a special person (and Officiant!). Of all the financials tied to a wedding, this was the best money we spent.

Bob,

Thank you so much for a truly memorable ceremony. Many, many guest complimented our wedding and you were foremost on the list of praises. We were told that our ceremoney was unique, special, emotional, and a true representation of who we are and our relationship. Thank you for the guidance, help and effort in crafting this moment for both Kristen and I.

Also, thank you for you words of encouragement and advice regarding our vows. We are going to try and follow suite to the best of our ability and "renew" of vows over the next 30 days. We know that marriage is considered by most to be... work... so why not start off on the "right" foot? Great advice!

Thank you again for everything; the day would not have been the same without your help!

My Wife and I chose journeys of the heart since we needed someone who was nondenominational to officiate our wedding but what we found with Laura Ford was so much more. Upon our first meeting we were overcome by her amazing spirit, her ability to put us at ease, and the way she really listened to us to help make our wedding so personal. We received many compliments on how personalized and meaningful our ceremony was. We would recommend both journeys of the heart as well as Laura Ford to any Bride and Groom looking for an officiant.

Wilson was thoughtful & sincere when we met him for our first consultation. He kept in contact with us throughout the months before the wedding checking in on us and seeing how the planning was going. He took his time with the rehearsal the night before our wedding until we felt comfortable with everything and used his experience and knowledge to help ease what could have been stressful. He preformed our ceremony perfectly the day of our wedding and I am so thankful we had someone as sweet & professional as Wilson to be a part of our special day!

Our officiant Diane Smith-Hoban for our wedding was more than we could have asked for. She really made our ceremony our own. I love the way she got to know us as a couple and played to our fun, silly and loveable personalities. She really personlized our ceremony in a unique way telling our love story and helping us to add our own personal touches to make it truley a unique and special moment. Diane was very professional but easy going and down to earth and just knew the words and special touches we wanted for our ceremony. We were not looking for a real religious ceremony and she was able to give us different options to create a ceremony that we wanted. She helped everything come together to create a perfect ceremony and our beautiful marriage would not have been complete without her. I would recommend Diane and Journeys of the Heart to anyone else looking to create your own special personalized ceremony.

She helped everything come together to create a perfect ceremony and our beautiful marriage would not have been complete without her. I would recommend Diane and Journeys of the Heart to anyone else looking to create your own special personalized ceremony. Read less

We are so lucky to have worked with Miki Young to make our wedding ceremony unique and meaningful for us and our guests. We lived out-of-town, so through multiple phone calls and video chats, Miki really got to know us and walk us through the process of creating the ceremony. She had a lot of great suggestions and listened to all of our ideas. Our guests enjoyed her bright spirit- she did so well in making everyone feel involved in our special moment. We highly recommend Miki and Journeys of the Heart to anyone looking to personalize their ceremony for a very reasonable rate.

I was so pleased with Gabrielle Kaplan-Meyer from Journeys of the Heart, who officiated our wedding on August 4th! She was so warm and easy to work with, and was very receptive to the interfaith ceremony that my husband and I wanted. She met with us about 6 months before the wedding to get our ideas for what we wanted from the ceremony. She then had us complete a questionnaire to get a better sense of us as a couple. She had the outline of an interfaith ceremony (Jewish/Catholic) that we really liked, and she was open to every adaptation that we wanted to make. The ceremony ended up being beautiful, and people couldn't stop talking about what a meaningful and unique ceremony it was. Gabby was very professional, responded promptly to questions, and arrived prepared and on time. I HIGHLY recommend her, and Journeys of the Heart, for officiant services. :)

Al was all that we could ask for and more in an officiant. He was professional and very responsive to all our questions. Even though we didn't write our own vows our ceremony was very much our own. We even got to incorporate our love story which was special. On our wedding day he made us both feel at ease during our ceremony. My husband and I would highly recommend Al and Journeys of the heart to anyone!

Before the event, she kept in constant contact and helped us create a beautiful custom ceremony that had classic elements mixed with a unique personal touch which made our event "one of a kind". Laura is very well spoken and a pleasure to work with. Her lighthearted, caring tone and personality is a breath of fresh air and really helped alleviate wedding day stress! Thank you!!!

When we first began looking for someone to marry us, my husband and I went to his parents’ pastor. After a brief meeting with him, he told us he couldn’t marry us because we lived together without being married. We don’t belong to a church, and every pastor we talked to required us to be a member of their church. We talked to various JPs, but they wouldn’t go to a venue to marry us; we’d have to go the courthouse. After a few weeks of searching with no luck, we were beginning to panic. Then found Journeys of the Heart.

It was exactly what we were looking for: a non-denomination organization that would provide a ceremony based on our beliefs, not theirs. We were put in touch with Kelly, one of their officiants who lives a few minutes from our venue. We spoke with her over the phone, and she was more than helpful. She walked us through what a typical ceremony looks like, and gave us several options for what to include in our ceremony. She also gave us about 20 different versions of vows and ring blessings to choose from, so we were able to find the one that fit our personalities the best. She was such a sweet and friendly person to work with, and she helped make our day perfect!

Susanne from Journeys of the heart was the most amazing part of our day! But what made her so incredible was that the warmth and kindness started from the first time we contacted her. We are currently in Florida, but planning the wedding for Pennsylvania, which made our process a little different. But I didn't feel for a second that we were slighted the opportunity to connect with her. She was available anytime for a phone call or email and had fun and sweet ways for us to give her "our story" where she really listened about the two of us but also our family and friends. She crafted our ceremony along with us and gave us many ideas and examples to use. We were able to bring in ideas that we had and make each second so special and personal. As she spoke she brought about so much emotion and really was passionate about what was important to us. So many of our guests said that it was THE MOST romantic and sweet ceremony they had ever been to. We felt that we knew her forever. After the ceremony she even stayed to wish us off and mingle with a few guests, making her even more like family. We would recommend Susanne over and over again!

We had a wonderful experience with Journeys of the Heart. Our officiant was Bob Pileggi - he was amazing! He took so much time to work with us and really make our ceremony unique and personal. Bob was a great resource for ceremony ideas and gave us a multi-page document full of readings and vows to choose from. Everything was customizable and there were no right or wrong aspects to our ceremony...only what we wanted to do to express our love for one another. We also included our 8-year old into the ceremony and Bob was great with adding personal touches to make her a part of the day. We've lost track of how many people have told us how special our ceremony was and that it was the best ceremony that they've ever been a part of. There was not a dry eye in the place! We highly recommend working with Journeys of the Heart, especially Bob Pileggi if he is available.

The ceremony was truly unique and very meaningful. Bob really took the time to create a custom ceremony. There wasn't a dry eye in the house. It was truly memorable. I highly recommend Bob and Journeys of the Heart.

He made the ceremony incredibly personal to us, gave us an incredible array of choices for every aspect of the ceremony and was there to guide us through the process. We got so many compliments for him through our guests, most of them including how personal the ceremony felt.

I highly recommend him and we'll absolutely be calling him up to renew our vows in the future!

It was incredible. We got to use Diane's knowledge and expertise along with our input to have a truly customized ceremony. I can't even begin to count the number of people that came up to me after the ceremony saying how wonderful and amazing Diane and the ceremony were.

I highly recommend Diane for a wedding officiant; she made the process of wedding planning (which can get very stressful) enjoyable!

Bob Pileggi was our officiant for our wedding through Journeys of the Heart. I can't say enough about how wonderful he was. He created such a personal ceremony. The ceremony was sent to us to make any changes we wanted. He was also a very calming presense the day of our ceremony, when I was a mess an hour before he was there to talk and help. I think I would have cried through my whole ceremony if it wasn't for his advice.
Journeys was affordable and you can customize your experience depending on how much you want to spend. We went with the least expensive and I don't think our experience was hindered at all. Bob always responded to my e-mails and was great at offering suggestions and guidance. I highly recommend Journeys but even more highly recommend Bob Pileggi. Thank you so much!

My husband and I found Bob Pileggi through Journeys of the Heart. Bob was our officiant for both our son's baby blessing and for our recent wedding. On both occasions, Bob put his all in the ceremonies. He is prompt and extremely detailed oriented. He is also flexible, which was a must with our ceremony as we had to adjust the length to accomodate my ansy 18 month old!! But Bob ensured that all of the key elements were kept even in a shorten ceremony. He had our guests in tears at his beautiful words! Our ceremony was deeply personal and one of a kind. Even in his description of marriage, Bob was able to make it about my husband and I, not just a broad "one size fits all" ceremony. He captivated our guests and most importantly the bride and groom. He even sent us an audio recording of both ceremonies! Bob and Journeys of the Heart are absolutely amazing!

Then, when my husband and I met Susanne Wilson, we felt that we had met the person who was meant to conduct our wedding ceremony. Susanne Wilson may be one of the most amazing people that I have ever met in my entire life. She is such a positive person filled with love and happiness, and we felt an instant connection with her. During this whole process, from beginning to end, we were able to articulate to Susanne what we wanted in our wedding ceremony and what we did not. Susanne truly made our ceremony very special by incorporating what is dearest to us. Now that the ceremony is over, and we are married, my husband and I feel like we have a new edition to our family.

We used Journeys of the Heart for our June 22 2013 wedding, and we chose Al Vernacchio as our officiant! We couldn't have been happier with our choice. I am not a creative person, so Al wrote our entire ceremony and vows and did an AMAZING job. He also had some amazing ideas in place of the Unity candle tradition. Our ceremony was so unique and beautiful, and words can't describe how thankful we are to have been blessed with Al as our officiant. He was kind, creative, and was there for us through it all. Anytime I had a question, he would respond immediately and put my mind at ease. He is an amazing public speaker (he does public speaking on the side, so he is a pro)and his delivery is great! I almost cried the first time that I read the final draft of the ceremony, it was so beautiful and different from the same old readings. We actually had a few people cry due to Al's words, (they were random's too, not even family members so that shows you the power of his words) Trust me, choose Al! YOu will not be disappointed, and people might even be jealous of your ceremony!

We used Journeys of the Heart for our June 22 2013 wedding, and we chose Al Vernacchio as our officiant! We couldn't have been happier with our choice. I am not a creative person, so Al wrote our entire ceremony and vows and did an AMAZING job. He also had some amazing ideas in place of the Unity candle tradition. Our ceremony was so unique and beautiful, and words can't describe how thankful we are to have been blessed with Al as our officiant. He was kind, creative, and was there for us through it all. Anytime I had a question, he would respond immediately and put my mind at ease. He is an amazing public speaker (he does public speaking on the side, so he is a pro)and his delivery is great!

We used Journeys of the Heart for our service and Jim was our officiant! I cant say enough nice things about him. He made sure he really got to know us before our service and his attention to detail was fabulous! We joke that he was family because two months before my wedding he married my sister and her husband, in a few weeks he will be marrying my father-in-law and his bride to be! Thank you Jim for your kind soul and wonderful service to Mark and myself! We will forever remember you!

Maria-Odilia Romeu of Journeys of the Heart was one of the best choices we made in our planning process. She helped us create and truly personal and meaningful ceremony. Several people told us it was the most beautiful and romantic ceremony they's ever been to. She made us feel completely at ease and was on top of every last detail day of so we could just relax and enjoy the experience. I'd highly recommend her to anyone!

My husband and I were connected to our officiant, Linda Noonan, through Journeys of the Heart. We met with Linda and I felt so comfortable with her. She is warm and has so much experience. She gave us sepcial ideas to add to our ceremony that came out beautifully. Our vows were a mix of traditional and our own. She calmed my nerves on wedding day and assured me that everything would be fine, and it was! She is professional and I felt confident in her skills. Our ceremony was incredibly special and all our guests continue to ask about our officiant and how we found her. Many of my friends who were present at the wedding are also planning their own weddings, and I am pretty sure they were taking notes! Thank you Linda for EVERYTHING, and thank you Journeys of the Heart for matching us with an officiant that fit our needs and wants so perfectly.

We are so happy that we had Naila marry us! She worked with my husband and I to create the perfect ceremony for our backyard wedding. We were able to go back and forth via email to customize the wording and she couldn't have been nicer. She was completely open to us incorporating our own traditions (like a quilt ceremony) and she really calmed down our nerves by being so incredibly sweet and endearing. We were both really nervous to exchange our vows and she made us feel relaxed. Our family kept raving about how beautiful her words were and how they swore we were friends with her because she knew us so well (when in actuality, our wedding day was our first time "meeting"!). Naila even printed out our vows and gave us a lovely take-away folder. We will definitely be recommending her and Journeys of the Heart to all of our engaged friends.

I didn't think there could be anyone kinder & sweeter on the face of the earth than Susanne of Journeys of the Heart. She has the biggest heart of anyone I have ever met and absolutely loves what she does. We opted to meet with her face to face and spent 3 hours talking about ourselves, to give her some "detail" into our relationship. This was the initial consultation, we hadn't even hired her yet. She stressed the importance of "clicking" with your officiant, because they would be an integral part of your wedding day. I absolutely loved her from day one.

Susanne was fabulous to work with, the process really couldn't have been any easier. We did everything by email, I didn't have to format, organize, think. We just picked what we liked and she did all the work. The day of the wedding she came up to talk with my husband and I, gave us a quick rundown and then did her thing.

Our wedding ceremony couldn't have been more beautiful. Susanne completely blew us away with the little tidbits she included in our ceremony that she picked up along the way. The ceremony was meaningful & special, it showed the love we had for each other and everyone who came to share the day with us. It was exactly what we wanted. I still have guests talking about what a fabulous ceremony it was, if I had to do it again, I'd hire Susanne a million times over.

My wife and I selected Journeys of the Heart to officiate our July 2012 wedding at the Cairnwood Estate in Bryn Athyn, PA. Maria-Odilia Romeu was the officiant selected to work with us. From our initial phone consultation through the day-of our ceremony, Maria worked with us to create a fully-customized ceremony that was uniquely us. We could not be more pleased with the quality of our experience. Maria was so personable, genuine, and professional throughout the process. Our guests remarked how much they enjoyed the ceremony and our officient, specifically noting how Maria made the ceremony seem more conversational and personal rather than just a presentation. My wife noted that the officient was one aspect of the wedding that she didn't worry about. We would strongly recommend Journeys of the Heart to anyone looking for a high-quality officient who will work with your own religious, spiritual, or secular needs to create an incredible personalized ceremony that seamlessly blends diverse belief systems. Thanks, Maria and Journeys of the Heart!

On the big day she was there as a support system to keep us calm and focused as well as to ensure that the day went off without any snags. We have received so many compliments about her service- everyone thought she was fantastic. If you are looking for someone who will take the time to get to know you and truly wants to be a part of your special day, look no further, book Anita immediately. You will be so happy you did.

Maria Odilia Romeu was our officiant. We met her once before the wedding, and corresponded by email from there on out. She did a really nice non-religious ceremony for us. It lasted about a half an hour, and focused on us and our story. She even conducted a lot of the ceremony from the ground, while we were standing on a riser, so the focus really was just on us. Even though (or maybe because) it was not traditional, we got many compliments on the ceremony and Maria specifically - especially from older guests.

I called her initially just to get a feel for her personality (totally normal!) and then arranged a telephone meeting between me, my fiance, and Kelly. She really got us thinking about what we wanted from our ceremony. She sent us a "Love Story" form, which we initially cringed at and delayed filling out. We were pleasantly surprised how she took the information we provided and created an AMAZING ceremony. We got tons of compliments from our guests. My mom insists that that was the best wedding ceremony she has ever been to. I can't say enough great things about Kelly and would 100% recommend her to anyone.

I can't count how many times someone came up to us and said it was the best wedding ceremony they have ever attended. She made it personal and beautiful and has great comic timing and wit and had our family and friends laughing.

Journeys of the Heart creates a ceremony which honors the couple and glories in the partnership they are creating. This isn't the same ceremony everyone else does, you get a one of kind experience. I cannot recommend it enough.

PS. We had two couples at the wedding who are getting married next year, they both asked for Diane's number.

Journeys of the Heart is a wonderful ministry service and we are so happy we looked to them to find the officiant for our wedding. On their website are extensive bios of all their officiants (about 22) and it is easy to read through them and get a feel for who might fit your personal style. My husband and I read through the bios separately, and both of us chose Jim Rosengarten to be the officiant for our wedding! From the first time we met Jim, we knew we had made the right decision. He is warm, personable, and genuinely interested in getting to know the couples with whom he works. After listening closely to our vision for the wedding and carefully reading our responses to the Journeys of the Heart questionnaire (including questions about how we met, when we first knew we were in love, etc.), Jim wrote the most beautiful and personal ceremony for us. Our guests were very impressed also, commenting that they had never been to a more tailor-made event that aptly reflected the bride and groom. My husband and I were honored to have Jim perform our wedding ceremony. We highly recommend Jim – and Journeys of the Heart – to any future bride & groom!

We had the most memorable and amazing experience with Susanne Wilson. She is a caring, calming, genuine person and was an absolute pleasure to work with. She has such a unique and beautiful way with words. She created a wonderful wedding ceremony for us- one that captured our love and relationship perfectly. I truly cannot say enough kind words about her. I was amazed by all the wonderful feedback we got from our friends and family regarding the ceremony- they were so moved. Everyone kept saying that it was hands down the best ceremony they had ever been a part of. I highly, highly recommend Susanne to everyone and anyone.

We had the most memorable and amazing experience with Susanne Wilson. She is a caring, calming, genuine person and was an absolute pleasure to work with. She has such a unique and beautiful way with words. She created a wonderful wedding ceremony for us- one that captured our love and relationship perfectly. I truly cannot say enough kind words about her. I was amazed by all the wonderful feedback we got from our friends and family regarding the ceremony- they were so moved. Everyone kept saying that it was hands down the best ceremony they had ever been a part of. I highly, highly recommend Susanne to everyone and anyone. She was such a special part of our wedding day and we will never forget it or her! Read less

Miki Young was the officiant for our interfaith wedding. She did an AMAZING job. The ceremony was just what we wanted: person, unique, light-hearted, and not too long:) Many of our guests raved about Miki, and that our ceremony was the best they have ever been to. It could not have gone any better, and it was a great experience working with Miki.

Irene Fulton – Journeys of the Heart as a company is amazing. They are quick to
respond, and have a number of officiants to choose from. We read through the list and found Irene to
be the best fit for us. After meeting her in person, we knew we chose the best choice for us. She is truly
wonderful. From the moment we met, we got this peaceful vibe from her, and as two very emotional
people, that was definitely a must have. She worked with us to create a personalized ceremony for the
big day. She offered suggestions, fixed up some wording to sound more formal, and lent us a helpful
hand whenever it was needed.

On the day of the wedding she was prompt and quickly helped the guys get in order (we didn’t do a first
look). She delivered our ceremony so beautifully that there wasn’t a dry eye in the whole place. She
was patient (with our cries of happiness) and was overall the only person I could ever imagine guiding
us through our handfasting, and marriage. Every single person commented on how unique, loving and
wonderful our ceremony was – a large part of the credit to that belongs with Irene.

I highly recommend Journeys of the Heart as a company, but especially Irene Fulton.

She only met with us one time and yet it seemed like she had known us forever! JOTH is great for designing your own ceremony. Diane walked through everything with us and asked us what we wanted, special things we wanted to add, and you get to pretty much create a ceremony exactly how you want it. Diane did a great job sharing our story during the ceremony and really focusing on the love and the importance of the day. She was so easy to work with and such a great person in general. We were so happy with how the ceremony came out and I would recomend her to anyone!

Our ceremony was a wonderful blend of Jewish traditions but done in an interfaith way. We were so happy that our ceremony really felt like it was crafted just for us. Our families and friends could not stop talking about how beautiful they thought the ceremony was.

I have recommended Marguerite and her company many times as a wedding photographer so it was the only way we were going to go when it came to an officiant. When she told us that she personally was not available, we were very disappointed as she tried to change her schedule but was unable to. so, she referred us to Suzanne, one of the other officiants in her company. Suzanne worked with us over an almost 9 month timeframe helping us customize our ceremony so when the wedding day came she was great. The guests enjoyed her humor and she made this special time in our lives extremely solemn but yet relaxing. My 85 year old Very Catholic mother was even impressed by how nice she was and how professional the ceremony was.
If you want a "Non Denominational" ceremony call Journeys.

Journeys of the the Heart was the perfect choice for our wedding. We were initially skeptical of using a service like them as it seemed a bit "one size fits all", but we couldn't have been more wrong. They tailored the ceremony exactly to our needs! Al Vernacchio was excellent - he spent a lot of time with us, getting to know us, what type of experience we wanted, and the little things that made us decide to get married, and it all came through in the ceremony. It was made just for us, and we got so many compliments on how beautiful it was! We can't thank Mr. Vernacchio and Journeys of the Heart enough for the great experience!

My husband and I used Journeys of the Heart for our June wedding this year and Urbane Peachey was our officiant. We didn't want a very religious ceremony but wanted to have God incorporated. Other than the Irish Blessing and to be declared husband and wife we had no idea what we wanted to do for our ceremony or how to go about putting one together. Urbane was great working with us to find what we wanted, he had examples of different ceremony components and we were able to choose the ones we liked to create something that was perfect for us. Our wedding was outside, in June, in 90-something heat on a very sunny day. I thought my guests were going to leave and my soon-to-be husband was going to pass out. Urbane got through the ceremony without rushing, but without taking too long too. My husband and I decided before hand that we weren't going to have him tell a story of how we met at the ceremony. During the ceremony he said "When I first sat down with Jean and Anthony they told me the beautiful story of how they meet.....which you can ask them about AFTER the ceremony" which caused everyone to laugh with relief when they realized they didn't have to sit through a long story in the heat. Urbane was sweet, subtly funny and we were happy he was a part of our special day. You can tell he enjoys what he does and genuinely enjoys being part of such an important event.

Choosing Journeys of the Heart for our wedding officiant was one of the best decisions for our wedding. Both my husband and I are not religious and were dreading locating a meaningful officiant that would capture our spirits without bringing religion into the ceremony. Journeys of the Heart was a perfect fit. We were able to meet with HELEN BURKE almost a year in advance for about an hour and discussed how we wanted our ceremony to be. Helen was very accomodating and together we designed OUR perfect wedding. Her love story brought tears to the eyes of many. We were participants and designers in every aspect of our ceremony and for that I will be eternally grateful. Thank you Helen for your amazing ceremony. Our guests still talk about how wonderful it was a year later.

From the very first contact, I knew that Susanne Wilson was THE officiant for us. (also great, even though Journeys is far away, Susanne is local!) I have never met a more caring and considerate person, and the notion of being able to custom-design our ceremony was really neat.

Susanne was patient, full of great suggestions, and most importantly, has a fantastic sense of humor. We had such a great time at our rehearsal and ceremony. It was very important to us as we are not "religious" that we have an intimate and yet laid back ceremony. Susanne captured the essence of who we are, and put together a ceremony that was absolutely unforgettable!

Everyone that I spoke with at Journeys was so very pleasant and kind... I would not hesitate to recommend them!

We chose Journeys of the Heart because we were getting married outside, and wanted a non-denominational ceremony. I was a little nervous at first since I belong to a traditional church, but I was put at ease from the first contact. Naila was our officient, and she was wonderful, she sent us several options for the ceremony and let us choose exactly what we wanted to personalize the wedding. She also included a blessing of my children, who were part of the wedding, and this was such a beautiful part of the ceremony. At first my husband thought JOTH was a bit expensive, but after the ceremony we were so happy that we chose them! Naila was wonderful.

At first my husband thought JOTH was a bit expensive, but after the ceremony we were so happy that we chose them! Naila was wonderful. Read less

I chose Journey's of the Heart via the internet. Right from the start I was confident and felt that I was making a great choice. Right away I was contacted my Margurette. We talked for along time and she listened to all my thoughts and concerns. We were then matched up with Kelly Fuddy. We met with her for 1 hour and discussed our wedding. I felt we hit if off very well from the start. Over the past year we mainly stayed in contact by email but she was very nice and quick to respond. Our wedding was held outside. Of course it rained. We ended up cutting just about all of our ceremony out except our rings, and vows. Kelly was so sweet and agreed to stay longer than expected and finished up our ceremony at our receptions. I was so thrilled that she was willing to do that for us!

My husband and I got married outside, and were seeking a spiritual service relatively 15minutes long. Personally, I had no idea there were so many options available for vows and ceremony types and rituals (like wine drinking or unity candles...) we could pick from. Our officiant, Urbane Peachey was absolutely amazing. He was exactly what we were hoping for, and really provided us with unique choices and a helping hand on what to select for our service. Never judgemental, always supportive and he basically gave us the pieces to our ceremony and allowed us to pick and choose what best suited our personalities.

I really think Urbane's kind nature and genuine love for what he does really made us love working with him and being in his company and all of our guests thought he was delightful, kind, and genuinely happy to be there! He brings a sense of peace to the meetings and the wedding day, and he performed a truly special and unique service that everyone will always remember!!

We had our original officiant (not from Journeys) move away about six months before our wedding and on a recommendation from our Silver Sound DJ we went with Maria Romeu from Journeys of the Heart. They do completely customizeable weddings and were willing to incorporate a candlelight ceremony piece for me. Knowing we wanted a portion candlelight and do the unity candle, Maria came up with the idea that we'd pass the light from back to front of the wedding guests at the ceremony and once it reached our moms in the front row than we'd get the light from them to light the unity candle. Everyone loved this!! It was an awesome sight to stand up there and watch the light spread from guest to guest and it made for a unique wedding moment. Maria was so personable and nice to use when we met to put the ceremony together. She also asks that you not include her for the dinner which is nice because there are so many other expenses and vendors to serve it was nice that from the start she said don't worry about feeding her. She was so friendly that she chatted with the other guests during cocktail hour and they all seemed to really like her.

She had wonderful suggestions when we spoke on the phone. This company was truly a joy to work with. Our original officiant backed out on us a few weeks before the wedding, and my wedding planner called Miki because she had worked with her before. I'm so glad she did.

My husband and I are not religious, so it was important for us to find a non-denominational officiant. I read about Journeys of the Heart on Wedding Wire, and thought it sounded perfect. It was!
Miki was a wonderful officiant. We met with her twice before the ceremony. She is very experienced and easy to talk to, and crafted a very personalized ceremony for us. And it was only 20 minutes, which was a great length for us.
We had so many compliments on how beautiful and unique the ceremony was. I highly recommend Miki and Journeys of the Heart.

Picking an officiant for our wedding was a bit tricky because while my husband’s an atheist and I’m an agnostic, my family is very religious (Baptists). We wanted someone who could help put together a ceremony that would have meaning for all of us without getting new-agey.

Journeys of the Heart seemed to understand our predicament right away, so we chose Jim Rosengarten, one of their officiants, to officiate at our wedding. Jim is funny and kind, and during our skype call (we live in London and Jim in Philadelphia) listened attentively and made some excellent suggestions.

Jim sent us a first draft of the ceremony from which we could choose different readings, unity ceremonies, ring blessings and so on, which was great because it was really important for us to be able to customize the ceremony. Jim also put together a personal story to tell our guests a bit about how we met and came to be a couple, which was sweet.

It was a little hard to imagine how the ceremony would actually look or sound like, but on the day of the wedding it was beautiful. Jim had crafted a ceremony that involved our guests, was written beautifully and involved traditional elements like the blessing of the hands and rings without explicit religious references, which is what we wanted. He was an excellent public speaker and added some natural humor in appropriate places. When it started to rain, he managed to complete the ceremony before it started to downpour without rushing through or us feeling anything was missing.

It was a lovely ceremony and afterwards we received many compliments from our guests on it. I wholeheartedly recommend Jim and Journeys of the Heart.

From our very first phone consult up until the big day, working with Anita was one of our favorite parts in our wedding journey. She exuded such warmth, creativity and a genuine caring when it came to helping my husband and I create a ceremony that was unique and perfect for us.

Though we met her in person for the first time on our wedding day, thanks to the two amazingly in-depth phone calls we'd shared, it felt like Anita was a dear friend already. With neither of us being necessarily religious, but both feeling spiritual and appreciating the power of ritual and the symbolic nature of ceremony, Anita and Journey's of the Heart was a perfect fit.

With so many other details to look after, creating a unique ceremony and vows were very important to us, yet one of many things on the to-do list. Anita made it fun and easy! She was a great listener, and via our phone calls, we found it easy to convey our idea and style about the big day to her. Asking great questions and using her wedding experience, she helped us focus in on and envision our ideal ceremony, and the feel we wanted to create for for ourselves and our guests.

A consummate professional, Anita was a wealth of knowledge, suggesting readings that were spot on and emailing us vow ideas. She even helped us create our own personal ritual with milk and honey, something dear to the hearts of us two foodies! In the end she helped us gracefully navigate, what could have been an overwhelming endeavor.

She was fantastic on the big day, cheerful and welcoming to our guests with her warm smile, her voice clear and warmth; putting both my husband and I at ease as she led us though the ceremony we had all created together. Though rain and gray skies threatened our outdoor hilltop ceremony, guests said it was a beautiful touching ceremony and we felt that it was truly an expression of our love!

Hiring Journey's of the Heart was one some of the best $ we spent!

From start to finish she was always available to answer questions if we needed anything. Her stage presence is unbelievable. She's able to project her voice all the way to the back row of an outside wedding without it seeming like shes yelling. She was calm, collective, and spoke at just the right speed so everyone could hear her and understand her without it seeming like she was dragging on. She is genuinely a good person and she was a pleasure to work with! I will recommend her to everyone i can.

Maria of Journeys of the Heart performed as our Minister for our ceremony. Throughout the entire process, she took us, the couple into account by personalizing the ceremony to what fits us and not a cookie-cutter ceremony. We took our own ideas and traditions as well as her experience and she created a beautiful ceremony that made us feel united.

In terms of readings, vows, etc, Maria provides an extensive collection from which to choose either to use directly or to mix and match based on what means most to the couple. She is warm, kind-hearted, and a gentle calmness that is helpful to brides, grooms, and their family as the most joyous of occasions can be the most stressful as well.
Maria did an excellent job of managing everyone at the rehearsal.

Since we are an interfaith couple and neither of us are religious, we searched for a non-denominational officiant. I met with Journeys of the Heart and had a meeting with Micki. We immediately loved her unique ideas and felt that it would be perfect for us. She had all sorts of ideas like passing the rings through the crowd at the ceremony so everyone close to you touches it, the hands ceremony, the circling of flowers, etc. In addition, she suggested that we add our respective traditions without being too religious (unity candle, breaking of the glass, etc.) She gave us the full script of the ceremony before hand and we edited and customized it. This was especially nice because she had a personalized love story which we used to say what we wanted to say to each other without having to say it ourselves. It was short, sweet and to the point. Afterwards, we had so many compliments on how the ceremony fitted us so perfectly.

She was so understanding with us and didn't add any stress or difficulty throughout the whole process. She gave us a questionnaire to fill out and after a 15 minute phone call was able to write us vows that seemed like she had known us for years. Slightly expensive, but if you want the best...you gotta pay for the best!

Urbane Peachey was our officiant for our 10/21 ceremony at the Rockwood Carriage House in Wilmington, DE. We had an outside non-denominational ceremony in the park and were able to personalize it in such a way that it was the highlight of the entire day (and I guess the ceremony should be an important part of the wedding right??). When I talk to any of the guests that attended our wedding, the first thing they tell me is that the ceremony was so beautiful. We were able to thank our parents, do a remembrance for those no longer with us, take a moment to look around, and include our love story. If you aren't associated with a church and don't have anyone to officiate your wedding, I would highly recommend going with Journeys of the Heart. Especially if you are looking to make your ceremony very personable and special.

They are a little on the pricier end but I feel like it was worth it considering that the ceremony, the vows, and the moment of the union is what it's ALL about!!!

My only suggestion is that they don't charge more in order for the officiant to attend the rehearsal. We did not have our officiant attend the rehearsal because of the cost and I feel like there were a few minor glitches that could have been smoothed out during that time.

But all in all, great service. Thank you JOTH and Urbane!

My only suggestion is that they don't charge more in order for the officiant to attend the rehearsal. We did not have our officiant attend the rehearsal because of the cost and I feel like there were a few minor glitches that could have been smoothed out during that time.

But all in all, great service. Thank you JOTH and Urbane! Read less

With only a couple of months before our wedding, we switched from our original pastor to Journeys of the Heart and Diane was luckily available. She was very nice and easy to work with. After our meeting, she sent us a ceremony with various examples of each section which we could either select from or choose our own version for. The price was high but totally worth it for us. We received many compliments about our beautiful ceremony and Diane did a very professional job.

We are not religious and did not want a ceremony where all the guests zoned out while the officiant droned on and on with stereotypical wedding readings. Linda Noonan from Journeys of the Heart wrote the perfect ceremony for us. It was succinct yet meaningful, as she spoke about our individual personalities as well as our relationship. She not only gave us many options for the vows, exchange of rings, and blessing, but we were able to combine and/or omit portions from the various choices. Each part of the ceremony transitioned smoothly into the subsequent part. We also gave her a few of our favorite quotations, and she incorporated them seamlessly into the script. She emailed us a copy of the entire ceremony before the wedding, and on the day of the wedding, she adhered to the agreed upon version. There were no surprises, and she never sounded like she was preaching. She was always poised and professional.

Our only criticism is about the pricing. It seems kind of silly that JOTH charges $100 extra for doing a rehearsal the day before the wedding. However, Linda assured us the rehearsal wasn't necessary so we opted out of it and did the rehearsal an hour before the ceremony which was more than sufficient.

We were incredibly impressed with the quality of our ceremony, and highly recommend Linda and Journeys of the Heart! Thanks for making our ceremony meaningful and memorable!

Jim Rosengarten was our officiant on our wedding day. He created a wonderful ceremony for us. He was always on top of everything, stuck to deadlines, and was very willing to communicate. He met with us before starting anything so he could get a feel for us as a couple and so we could get to know him as well. He was open about suggestions, made whatever revisions we needed and made sure the ceremony was exactly what we wanted. I would absolutely recommend him to anyone looking for a wedding officiant.

My husband and I got married may 23rd, 2014. After a bad start with another vendor we searched for a new officiant and found Journeys of the Heart. Our officiant Bob Pileggi responded the day we emailed him. The whole process was great. Bob skyped With us and got to know us. He created a wonderful personal ceremony that we and our guest loved. All of our guest said they have never seen a ceremony like ours. It was amazing and I am glad we went with Bob as our officiant.

Diane Smith-Hoban officiated a fabulous ceremony for us. She is kind and her spirit really speaks to you. Our guests thought the ceremony was beautiful and touching. She didn't have it very easy either as this was a cross cultural wedding and her flexibility was much appreciated. I highly recommend Diane and Journey's of the Heart.

Journey's of the Heart is a great company to consider using if you are wanting a wedding ceremony tailored to your custom needs/beliefs. We had a non-denominational ceremony and our officiant, Katie Letterio, worked very closely with us to draft our ceremony and give advice. She also was available to lead the rehearsal (for an extra fee) which was extremely important because of the custom nature of the ceremony. I was glad to have Katie help walk us through that process.

We worked with Bob as our officiant and he was great! My wife and I first met Bob at the Lovesick expo in Philly. We felt a connection to him right away but it turned out that he had just been booked for our ceremony date. We're a same sex couple so Bob recommended some other officiants that we could work with. We liked the philosophy of the company and submitted a request to get matched with an officiant. It turned out that Bob's other wedding was moved to a different date so he became our officiant.

Being a same-sex couple living in Pennsylvania, we needed to have our legal ceremony in another state (even though the law changed 3 days after our ceremony!). Bob was able to officiate both ceremonies which brought a nice cohesiveness to the events. We appreciated the ideas and structure that Bob provided for both ceremonies. He suggested some great poems and readings that we loved. Bob was very patient with us as we revamped the materials to fit our vision. Bob was very poised and calm during the ceremonies and our family and friends were impressed with him. We really liked working with Bob and would recommend him and Journeys of the Heart!

We couldn't have been happier using Journeys of the Heart. Jim was especially wonderful to work with. He perfectly blended our ceremony to reflect my husband and me. My husband is Catholic and I am not and he was able to keep out ceremony religious enough to keep the grandparents pleased. From our first meeting until we said our vows my husband and I felt at ease and relaxed with Jim leading us. I appriciated that Journeys of the Heart provides a price schedule so you can decide what you need from them and what you can afford. Would recommend them!

Wow, I loved my ceremony thanks to Journeys of the Heart. They personalize your ceremony in a way that's just beautiful. I felt like it wasn't a cookie-cutter ceremony and genuinely reflected our relationship. You can also make it as religious as you want to really be tailored to your beliefs, which I love. If I had gone to my church, I would have felt obligated to stick to what the pastor wanted in accordance with the church, rather than getting to pick what is most meaningful to me. We received so many compliments on our ceremony, and how often does that happen at a wedding? They really worked to make us happy. There was some delay in terms of when I was promised to receive a first draft of our ceremony, but in the end, it all came together fine. Just make sure you stay on top of the timeline in case your officiant doesn't. You can also select the level of service you receive at different price breaks-- great for people who may want something more generic instead.

Overall we had a good experience with Journeys of the Heart. Maria was our officiant. She was quick to respond to emails and wrote a beautiful ceremony for us. However, considering the money we paid and the fact that Journeys of the Heart is supposed to be the best I expected perfection. On the day of the wedding, Maria arrived on time. However, we had specifically asked that the rings be passed down through the bridal party so that each member could hold them/bless them. On the day of, she changed this a little bit and had the maid of honor and best man walk in front of each member of the bridal party holding the rings. Thene each member placed their hands over the rings and blessed them. It turned out a little awkward and not exactly what we had invisioned, but maybe I should have been a little more specific with what we wanted. She also seemed a little flaky and unsure of herself in front of a large crowd. I hate to write anything negative, and think that the ceremony overall was beautiful. Many guests commented on how unique it was. I just think there are other officiants that cost a lot less that could have done just as good of a job.
