I truly cannot sing enough praises about Naila as an officiant or as a person. Her beautiful, kind spirit and genuine joy in the unique love and love stories of all of her couples was evident throughout the planning process as well as in the absolutely beautiful ceremony she created for us. All of our guests were equally moved by the words she crafted and her eloquent delivery of them and I can't count how many comments I have gotten about how magnificently crafted and perfect the ceremony was but suffice it to say that many of our guests said it was the most beautiful wedding ceremony they had been to and Naila is a huge part of that. As an officiant during planning she is comforting, calming, engaged and genuinely interested in the couple and wants to make sure that the ceremony exactly fits your personalities, values and ultimately your vision for your wedding day and the life you plan to build together. She delivered on that and our ceremony was the perfect introduction to our lives together. She spent time after the ceremony to speak with our guests and to make sure to personally wish us well. I am so happy that we chose Naila to perform our ceremony and can't emphasize enough what a wonderful spirit she has, she truly has a calling for delivering a unique, personalized and touching ceremony and we could not have picked a more perfect officiant for our day! Thank you for everything, Naila!

We discovered Journeys of the Heart at a friend’s wedding. We were struck by how thoughtfully the celebrant presented the story of this couple. The ceremony felt so personal and meaningful. We were looking for just that feeling for our wedding. We were introduced to Jim O’Brien and from the first meeting, we were so impressed by his words and the ceremony plan he had begun to craft. He pinpointed some great observations of our relationship and our story. We wanted a non-religious ceremony and Jim was able to guide us in selecting beautiful elements and wording. He worked together with us to incorporate readings we selected, sections we had written, and the inclusion of an ‘oathing stone’ as part of our vows. Our wedding felt so personal and Jim facilitated it with such care. We are so grateful for his help. He also remained incredibly poised as we stood under some intense sun during our garden wedding!

Our officiant was Susanne Wilson, and she was simply amazing. So responsive, easy going, encouraging, and kind. She had so many suggestions for readings, ceremonies, vows, you name it! We really felt like she took the time to get to know us and our ceremony really felt like a reflection of us. We received so many compliments on the ceremony. We loved Susanne, and highly recommend her!

Journeys of the Heart was absolutely wonderful to work with! The administrator was quick to respond to our initial inquiry and set us up with Jim O'Brien upon request. My husband and I cannot express enough how much we appreciate how special Jim made our wedding day. It was the time of our lives and we are just thrilled that he officiated our ceremony.

Thank you!

Bob Pileggi was so easy to work with. After our first meeting, we knew he would create a beautiful ceremony. Bob was responsive, encouraging, thorough and helpful in creating a truly unique, personal ceremony. Many guests commented on how our ceremony really reflected our relationship and personalities. We are so thankful we had Bob to create our perfect ceremony. We would recommend him to anyone !

My husband and I come from different faith backgrounds, so we wanted to find an officiant who could make our ceremony non-religious but still personal and meaningful. Previewing the officiants availabe, I immediately connected with Naila's background as a writer, and we couldn't have been happier with our choice! Naila was a warm, personable guide as we thought through each step of our ceremony. She provided us with helpful resources that helped us hone in on what we wanted to include/exclude. Planning weddings can be stressful, as anyone can tell you. But, throughout the process, Naila was the calm, collected presence we needed to make sure everything was going to be ok. After some collaboration, our ceremony ended up being exactly what we wanted. Everyone at the wedding loved it, which is sometimes not the most memorable part of a wedding! If I were to do it all over again, I would most certainly go with Naila again! Thank you for helping us put together the most beautiful ceremony we could have imagined!

We met Susanne Wilson at a wedding sampling at Stroudsmoor Country Inn. Even though we met many officiants throughout the day, we felt an immediate connection with Susanne. Since we were planning our PA wedding long distance from SC, we communicated through Skype and email throughout the next couple months. Susanne helped us create the unique ceremony we were looking for, but still retained some of the traditional Catholic elements we grew up with. Words cannot describe how happy we were with the way our ceremony turned out. Our family and friends are still complimenting us about how our beautiful our ceremony was and how it was "us". We highly recommend Susanne and Journeys of the Heart.

Words cannot express how grateful we are to have David Braneky from Journeys of the Heart to be our officiant for our wedding in May 2016. David, you are absolutely amazing! I wish all couples could be as fortunate as we are to have you for this experience!
My husband and I are not very religious, my family are Chinese and his family are Methodist. We want our ceremony to honor both families, be unique, sentimental, but also fun. We emailed and met a few officiants, and none of them felt like the right fit until we found Journeys of the Heart.
I talked with Diane over the phone about our situation, and she recommended David. During our first meeting, David talked with us for over an hour to really get to know us, and we got to know his style and were very comfortable with it. A month after we met, David provided us a first draft of the ceremony, and I cannot tell you how much thoughts and efforts he put into it! Not only did he provided many different options to consider for our non-religious ritual and readings, he also researched the traditions of Chinese tea ceremony and the vows in Chinese (even the pronunciations) to incorporate into our wedding! I had some family members came from China who did not speak English, but still felt so involved during the ceremony.
Thanks again David and Journeys of the Heart for making this day so special and memorable!

Absolutely fantastic!!! We chose Maria as our officiant. She just seemed to fit our personality right away and would be perfect to celebrate and officiate me and my husband's special day. From day one she was friendly and more than accommodating to what we were looking for. As a non religious couple she tailored the ceremony so that it was a unique and beautiful experience for not only my husband and I but our guests as well. The ceremony ran smoothly and was an intimate yet concise event for us and our guests. Highly recommended!
