My husband and I are not very religious, but still wanted a personal and spiritual ceremony. We selected Diane as our officiant and were so lucky that she was available! She was a perfect fit for us. We meant with Diane via Skype to learn more about the process and her experience - we booked her right after that call, because it was clear that she is a true professional with a true passion for wedding ceremonies. Not to mention, she has so much experience - she's seen and dealt with it all! She sent us a rough draft of our ceremony with options built in for us to choose from, such as unity ceremony options, reading options, etc. There were multiple options for almost every aspect of the ceremony script, which gave us the opportunity to customize it. Among these options were over 30 different vows that my husband and I mixed and matched to create our individualized vows that said exactly what we wanted to say to one another (without the pressure of having to completely free-write our vows). Diane totally knows what she is doing. For example, she taught us how to take the rings and put them on each other in a seamless way. She stepped aside and whispered the vows in our ear so that the focus would be on us saying the words - and we were able to look at one another the entire time instead of at a paper. Before the ceremony, she talks to the DJ, the wedding party, and anyone reading at the ceremony to ensure that everyone is informed about their duties and on the same page. We were continually impressed by Diane. Many of our guests told us throughout the night that it was one of the most beautiful and personal wedding ceremonies they had ever been to. That it had felt like us. It was truly magical- such a wonderful memory. Thank you for everything, Diane! Highly, highly recommended!!

My husband and I are so glad we went with Gabrielle Kaplan-Mayer and Journeys of the Heart. As an interfaith (Jewish-Buddhist-ish) couple, we wanted our ceremony to honor where we come from, as well as who we are both as individuals and as a couple. Gabby did a great job offering guidance and suggestions on how our ceremony could do just that and she had many creative ideas. We knew as soon as we met her that she was a perfect fit for us--she is laid back, welcoming and down to earth. While she sent us ceremony options, it was always clear that we had the final say. The day of, Gabby was a calming presence and we received so many compliments from guests on how she led our ceremony. Our readings and our vows were perfect for us and helped make our day all the more wonderful. We really can't say enough positive things about working with Gabby and Journeys of the Heart!

I can't say enough wonderful things about Journeys of the Heart and our officiant, Naila Francis. My husband and I met with Naila a few months before our wedding and absolutely loved her energy and spirit. We worked with Naila to create a beautiful ceremony for our wedding through a few questionnaires and emails. Naila was very flexible and offered great suggestions. In the end, we created a ceremony that spoke so clearly of our partnership and us as a couple. I could not have been happier. So many people complimented us on our lovely ceremony during our wedding - they found it to be very thoughtful, moving, and very personal. Guests said that they really felt like they knew us as a couple and our whole story, which is exactly what I wanted. Further, we got so many compliments about Naila's lovely, calming voice and her entire demeanor. I am so glad we had the opportunity to work with her and I would recommend her to any couple!

My husband and I had an interfaith ceremony and one of our officiants was Cantor Gabrielle Kaplan-Mayer. She was a dream to work with! She was so warm and kind! She made us both feel comfortable and was a fantastic public speaker. All of our guests said it was the best ceremony they had ever attended. She will make your wedding planning that much easier because she is so easy going, smart, organized, and sweet!

My husband and I recently got married in Philadelphia and had Bob Pileggi from Journeys of the Heart as our wedding officiant. My husband and I are not very religious, and come from different cultures. We were hoping to find an officiant that could help us create a ceremony that felt genuine and personal to us, while capturing our families traditions. It took us a long time to find the right officiant, but we are so happy to have found Bob. He was so calming, patient, and professional. He took such an interest in learning about both of us, that it made our whole ceremony planning process special. Bob created such a unique and special wedding ceremony for us, and really captured all the little touches that represented and honored our parents and family traditions as we hoped it would. We had so many friends and family comment on what a great ceremony it was and how Bob seemed to know so much about us. We can’t thank Bob enough for making our ceremony and vows so meaningful. He really made our wedding day special.

If you are looking for an officiant to tell your love story, bring laughter and tears, and be the upmost professional, look no further than Jim Haley!! When we started looking for our officiant, we knew what we wanted, but didn’t have a clue where or how to find him. Luckily we found Journeys of the Heart online and after reading Jim’s bio, we knew he was the one. After getting to know each other through Facetime and exchanging emails, Jim put together a beautiful, personal ceremony for us and we received so many comments about how beautiful, unique, and perfect it was!! We couldn’t be happier and highly recommend Jim Haley and Journey of the Heart!!

My best friend used Journeys of the Heart for her wedding. It was such a touching and personal service. I was really hoping that her officiant could officiate ours, so I'll be honest, I was a little disappointed when I learned she already had a wedding that night. Journeys of the Heart has many officiants and connected us with Bob P. We met with Bob to share our story. We also shared some information over email.

Wow, the final "product", the ceremony was wonderful! I felt he captured us and knew us better than we even know ourselves. We received many compliments on our wedding, but I would say our ceremony received the most comments. It was so personal and touching! Bob had great suggestions and incorporated so much to make to meaningful. I don't think there was a dry eye in the room.

Susanne was absolutely wonderful to work with, and our ceremony was one of the best parts of our wedding (as it should be!) We were looking for a non-religious ceremony that would feel appropriate to our religious family, and she absolutely gave us that. We've gotten so many compliments on our ceremony, and she was so happy to include the many different things we wanted to include. It was absolutely perfect, and felt so authentic to us and our relationship. You cannot go wrong with Susanne and Journeys of the Heart.
