FROM ONE GROOM TO OTHERS: Norma was great! She has been doing this for many years, so you can trust her judgment (and as a lawyer I trust no one!). She is an island of calm in the storm of anxiety that can surround a ceremony. Because of her formal education and theological training, she can handle it all. She believes in love and has a passion for her work. Don't let her fee scare you off, because she is worth it, and you don't have to pay it all at once. Her customized ceremony and special words for us were perfect. I cannot imagine a more perfect day and perfect wedding for me and my bride. Norma made that possible.

My husband, Frank, and I could not be happier about our decision to work with One Heart Ceremonies and have Mark Giller as our officiant. Our wedding ceremony was everything we imagined it to be and more. Mark was suggested to us by another couple who used him as their officiant, and I will be suggesting him to any couple I know who is about to be married. Mark created a ceremony that was so customized to meet everything we wanted in a ceremony, and helped guide us through the parts that we didn't even know were involved. He was so incredibly kind in every meeting and really wanted to get to know us as a couple, both in conversation and through having us fill out a detailed questionnaire about one another. In addition, he was extremely flexible to our relatively inflexible schedules, even allowing us to skype with him! Leading up to the ceremony he helped us to choose readings to allow our parents to be involved, helped us to include our own vows, and incorporated a “lover’s knot” tying ceremony to incorporate our love for boating. Mark gave us the choice to preview parts of the ceremony/give feedback and to be as involved/uninvolved as we wanted. I knew Mark was going to create a wonderful ceremony, but I never expected it to be that beautiful. Everyone… and I literally mean everyone… was in tears. Mark included so many wonderful things about Frank and I, and chose such heartfelt and appropriate readings. All of our guests were complementing us on how beautiful our ceremony was and how much it reflected out bond as a couple. Most importantly, during the ceremony, Mark talked Frank and I through every detail, gave us moments to reflect on what the ceremony actually meant and gave us time to absorb it all. From the beginning to the very end, Frank and I were so happy with our decision to work with Mark and One Heart Ceremonies and would recommend him a million times over! Thank you so much for making our wedding day so perfect!

I could not have found a better human being than Mark Giller to officiate at our wedding. Mark was kind, concerned and offered brilliant suggestions to make our exchange of vows special to us and memorable to our guests. Most weddings you remember the food and the music. We believe our guests will remember those things too, but I think we touched the hearts of every person with our ceremony. Anyone who can bring out the best in us is a special person and Mark is someone who I have been blessed to know, if only for a brief, but invaluable time.

The time, effort, and passion that Mr. Giller put into our ceremony was so incredibly heartfelt. My wife and I have already recommend him to some of our friends who will be getting married in the coming months. When looking for an officiant we did a tremendous amount of homework and our efforts paid off in a big way!!! I would give One Heart only the highest of reviews and recommend them to anyone.

Mark married my partner Anthony and I on July 19th, 2014 and I can't begin to say how much he contributed to the success of that day which many people commented on as the most beautiful wedding day they had ever been to! We certainly felt that. The entire day we were blessed with perfect summer weather, and the ceremony that took place in the marquee with the exchanging of our rings will stay with us forever - well, certainly me anyway!! Thank you so much Mark for making our day so special. The warmth and generosity of spirit that you extended to us was deeply felt. Bless you!

When looking for a wedding officiant, my now husband and I knew that we wanted something very personalized that held a lot of meaning for us and for our guests. We got a recommendation for Mark Giller of One Heart Ceremonies and were thrilled with the entire process. Mark met with us in person to get to know us, he gave us a detailed questionairre (we both found this to be a fun and meaningful exercise) and then crafted a beautiful ceremony that was a perfect reflection of who we are as a couple. Mark also helped us include our families and all of our guests, honor our different religious backgrounds, and provided a great sense of humor while still creating a sense of seriousness about what we were doing. It really was perfect and we can't thank Mark enough! My husband and I never expected to have so much fun at our wedding ceremony!

When planning our wedding, my husband and I wanted very much for the ceremony to reflect who we are as a couple while also complimenting our parents and the backgrounds we come from. Him being pakistani and me being italian, we really wanted to make sure both religions and cultures were respected and highlighted at the same time without losing the purpose of the ceremony...me and my husband!....Mark was immediately very easy to talk to and super approachable. He genuinely took the time to get to know us as individuals and a couple. I also really liked how he made sure we got what we wanted in the ceremony and he really worked with our requests. For example, my grandma hired a lady to release doves at the ceremony without telling me. Mark and I reviewed what the best way would be to have the doves be a part of the ceremony without taking away from the ceremony. It made my grandma happy and actually was very beautiful! Mark also took a personal liking to our families and really showed it in the ceremony by customizing certain portions of the ceremony to focus on our parents. He even surprised us with an italian greeting for my grandma! It was also very important to my husband to have a verse of the Quran read which Mark so respectfully read and gave great attention to.
We've been to many weddings and I can honestly say, I've never heard so many people talk about the ceremony as much as they did at ours. To this day, I have people tell me how great the ceremony was. Family and friends cried with joy and emotion and people came up to us and our parents saying that the ceremony really defined who me and my husband are.

I really can't rave enough about Mark and one heart ceremonies. When it comes to your wedding ceremony, you dont want it to feel like a business transaction like the other wedding vendors (flowers, music ect.) We truly believe and felt that Mark believed in our love for each other and that made everything even more special.

Norma officiated our wedding this past June, and was amazing! Many of our family members and close friends had commented after the ceremony on how wonderful the officiant was. We had wanted to find someone who could custom-tailor our ceremony with a mixed religion marriage to be fun, lighthearted, and sincere. And she is very reliable. My husband couldn't find his Kiddush Cup the day before the wedding and, Norma put him at ease immediately by saying she would bring one of her own to the ceremony the following day. She saved the day! There were guests that laughed, a few who cried, and we could not have been happier!

We would recommend One Heart Personalized Ceremonies to anyone looking for an officiant for their wedding. Thank you Norma!

Mark Giller officiated our wedding ceremony this past May. He crafted and delivered a wonderful ceremony—blending together both of our faiths/traditions (Jewish and Lutheran), while also giving it a personal touch—talking about us as a couple, how we met, our values, and hopes for the future. There was a tremendous feeling of warmth and love throughout our ceremony, which is exactly what we had wanted, and we owe much of that to Mark. We're still getting compliments from guests saying how lovely our ceremony was. We wholeheartedly recommend Mark Giller as a wedding officiant!

We found One Heart Ministries through online reviews and they were very positive. I can see why. Mark Giller officiated our wedding in Central Park and it was such a beautiful service. Everyone at the wedding was very impressed, especially my wife and me. We had a secular service and he touched on some really great themes and delivered a very moving ceremony... I was expecting him to be really good but he exceeded those expectations by far. He was very responsive to questions and comments and gave some really good advice about how to plan the day as well. I couldn't give a higher review for One Heart Personalized Ceremonies,

He was very respectful and understanding of our respective cultures and religions, and we received a lot of feedback from our friends and families from both sides regarding how wonderful they thought our wedding was. Mark's kindness and thoughtfulness, as well as attention to detail is what drew us to him in the first place. He continued to demonstrate his warmth and caring personality during our ceremony, particularly in the way in which he treated our parents and siblings, which was especially touching to us. We would recommend Mark to officiate any ceremony without any hesitation.

Norma was truly a pleasure to work with. Out of all of wedding vendors, Norma was always quick to respond, and put the care and attention we were looking for in our wedding ceremony. She listened to our ideas, brought her own unique twists (especially for an interfaith wedding), and was flexible when we wanted last minute changes.

And, on top of that, she was always very professional and easy to work with. We would highly recommend Norma to anyone.

On a chilly rainy February day, I and my fiance, cold from the drive from New York City, entered Norma's home for the first time. A piping hot cup of tea awaited with a glowing warm smile - We fell in love with Norma at that very instant.

It was easy to see why so many folks had given glowing reviews about their service. Post introductions, Norma asked us about our life story. We went over all the details starting since 2001 and Norma listened smilingly, with interest. After we went through our story, Norma explained to us different ways in which she would personalize the ceremony to suit our needs.

I and my fiance come from different backgrounds (I am a Hindu, while she is a Muslim) and we wanted a ceremony which would talk about one Almighty God, while adding humor and personalized stories about us. We were asked to fill out an online questionnaire and after a few weeks went back to Norma for our ceremony readout.

Norma did a brilliant job of customizing the whole experience to our needs, including a sand unity ceremony and bringing both our families together. Not only was she patient with our tardiness in getting back to her, she was also caring and considerate about our time and the running around we were going through, trying to plan all the wedding activities in 3 months.

On the day of the event, due to delays with guests arriving, she was extremely patient with us, making sure we were not getting tensed and we remained in a good mood.

I wish Norma and One Heart Personalized Ceremonies the best for all future endeavors and I am sure that you are in good hands once you decide to go with them!

When your friends and family rave about your wedding ceremony even after months of your wedding, you know you were lucky enough to have a very special wedding officiant! Norma gave us a beautiful personalized ceremony which was true to our individuality and spoke about what made us a couple. From our first meeting to the wedding day, it was a smooth hassle free process. What amazed me was the truly personalized nature of the wedding script. There is no fixed template and you can get as creative as you want ofcourse with the guidance of a professional in the field!

Norma was clearly a great listener as she even captured the little nuances and descriptions from our first meeting! She was the first and only wedding officiant we visited and we loved her style and warmth right away...it is infectious and was even felt by our wedding guests!

My husband and I were college sweethearts and finally after 10 years of dating across 5 different continents, we took the plunge this April! As we narrated our story to Norma right from the beginning, it was extremely fun to take a trip down memory lane almost reminding ourselves of the times we have shared and why we are getting married in the first place..this can often get sidelined admist all the wedding preparation and chaos!

Thank you very much for the amazing experience and for the lasting memories!

Mark Giller at One Heart ceremonies helped make our wedding ceremony very special. He met with us and genuinely got to know each other both individually and as a couple. It felt like a life-long friend was officiating our ceremony. We had different ideas for things we wanted incorporated into the ceremony and Mark was able to write them in seamlessly. I would without reservation recommend Mark and One Heart Ceremonies.

Mark from One Heart Ceremonies was absolutely fantastic with my wedding at the Venetian in Garfield, NJ back in February. My wife and I were so happy with our decision to go with him for the ceremony. He was extremely prepared, very responsive, and most of all, he ran a great ceremony. All of our guests were raving about the ceremony the next morning which is not usually the case after weddings because the reception overpowers the ceremony but that is how touched they were. He helped us with suggestions at times where we were stuck on something, and was always available for feedback. I would recommend Mark and One Heart to anyone that is looking to have a memorable ceremony.

Mark Giller did an absolutely perfect job at our ceremony at Bear Mountain Inn, NY! Since we weren't getting married in a church, and are still trying to determine our religious path (both raised Catholic but not practicing), we wanted a meaningful service but not a religious one. Something that was "us". Mark met with us a few times, had us provide him with lots of information about ourselves and our relationship (nothing intrusive), and wrote a truly touching, upbeat, and personalized service for us. Our guests said that it was the most personal ceremony they've ever attended, as he mentioned details that were specific to our relationship and interests, and not a traditional ceremony write up. There were heartfelt moments, funny moments, and inspirational moments. It was perfect.

Mark was a joy to work with, and really made our ceremony beautiful. I highly recommend!!

As you probably already know, wedding planning can be pretty stressful. One of the most important parts is definitely finding the right person to officiate your ceremony. Well you are in luck if you are considering working with Mark Giller. Mark Giller is such a kind, compassionate man who really personalized our ceremony and made our day that much more special. Every meeting we had with Mark was an absolute joy as he was genuinely interested in getting to know my husband and I and making sure our ceremony went exactly the way we (or maybe just how I) dreamed about my entire life. It was just a perfect day and all of my friends and family said it was the best ceremony they ever went to. That meant so much to me knowing that we worked directly with Mark on the ceremony. Mark is really a wonderful man and I promise working with him will be the least stressful part of your wedding planning! I hope that in the future my husband and I can have a vow renewal ceremony (just because the original was such a magical moment)and I know I will definitely work with Mark again. I couldn’t imagine working with anyone else!

When my wife and I were engaged and looking for a wedding officiant, we were very adamant about finding someone who could best represent our beliefs, cultures and lives. We had been to so many weddings where the most important part (afterall, there can be no wedding without a ceremony..) was lacking. Finding Norma of One Heart Ceremonies was the best thing that could have happened to us. We were attracted to the fact that she was held in high regard by our venue as well! As soon as we met Norma for our first meeting, she greeted us with a warm hug and a heartfelt congratulations. We felt so comfortable with her from the start. In getting to know her, we learned of her expertise in catering to every aspect of fully representing us on our big day. Admittedly, the stress of wedding planning can stray the focus of the wedding away from the meaning. When we met with Norma for our final meeting before the big day, we were instantly reminded and re-energized about being married. I don't think I was more excited and emotionally in touch than when we sat there as she read through our ceremony for us. The readings she chose, the words she wrote, and the heart the she had put into writing it all for us had overtaken me and my wife and I were overcome with tears of happiness. Thank you, Norma, so much, for making our day a dream come true!!!

I was fortunate enough to be married by Mark. He was a suggestion from my parents who had seen him perform an interfaith ceremony a few months before my wedding. I was in the need for an interfaith officiant and thought a recommendation was better than googling. Mark was wonderful. He is so kind and very charismatic. He was very flexible with us and let us meet over Skype since we lived a few hours away from him office. He was nice and early for our wedding day and performed a beautiful ceremony, even with the sun in his eyes the whole time. He was TONS of fantastic ideas of nice things to put into the ceremony.

We could not have been happier with our special day. We truly felt the ceremony was created just for us. We had over 20 guests fly in from 3 states and everyone commented what a truly remarkable job Mark did with our ceremony.

My fiancé and I are both Catholic, but neither one of us practices. For our wedding, we wanted a ceremony that incorporated some religious elements, but that was more personalized to our personalities and relationship than a traditional Mass would be. After meeting with a few priests and officiants who didn't really fit the idea we had, we found One Heart Personalized Ceremonies online and met with Mark shortly thereafter. I knew right away that Mark was a perfect fit, and I was not wrong.

He worked with us to craft a ceremony that was perfect in every way. Mark took the opportunity to really get to know us, and he peppered the ceremony with personalized references and quotes from a questionnaire he had us fill out. He also incorporated some ideas that we had (such as a knot tying ceremony) and even went as far as to give a welcome in Italian so that my husband's family and friends could understand.

After the ceremony, we received so many compliments on the ceremony. Everyone said that it was beautiful and remarked on how personalized it was. My husband and I had so much fun at our wedding, we keep saying we'd like to do it over a million times- and we'd choose Mark again each time!

I just can't express how amazing our officiant Norma Moutal from one heart personalized ceremonies was!! We were having issues with our first officiant and came across Norma through a recommendation, and I can't even imagine what our wedding would have been without her!! My family is still telling me how special our ceremony was, and it was all from the help of Norma. She met with us, and right away got us on the right track. My now husband and I have been together for 13 years and she completely personalized our ceremony to speak of our story. We wrote our own vows in addition to hers, had our candle lighting and I just can't express how special she made the entire wedding. I would promise that she will listen to you and care about how your ceremony turns out.  She will do everything she can to make it the best day possible. When we got back from our honeymoon, we realized she took care of all of the paperwork and all we had to do was sign at the ceremony.  She sent everything in and we just got our license in the mail!

Amazing, wonderful, special, caring, unique and a beautiful spirit - those are all words that come to mind when I think of her. Thank you Norma!! You are in our hearts forever!!

We are pleased to say that Norma Moutal of One Heart Personalized Ceremonies was the officiant for our March 8th wedding. As an interfaith couple, we were unsure how to go about planning a ceremony on our own, but fortunately, we had Norma to guide us. From our very first meeting, Norma took the time to get to know us and our "story" as a couple, offered us ideas and guidance in the ceremony planning, and was responsive to any questions and concerns we may have had along the way. As the wedding date came nearer, we were very excited but also a little nervous about how our ceremony would be received by our families and guests...but with Norma's knowledge, care, and experience, we were able to balance and represent both of our traditions, make our ceremony about US, and also touch the hearts of those surrounding us. There was definitely nothing to be nervous about! Everyone raved about how beautiful and special our ceremony was, and it was without a doubt, the happiest day of our lives! We highly recommend Norma to all interfaith couples or to ANY couple looking for a personalized, unique ceremony.

My husband and I were married in November 2012 and we have to say that our Officiate, Mark Giller, was the highlight of our ceremony.

We met with Mark prior to our ceremony and from the moment we met him, Mark was warm and inviting. We could tell Mark was not going to fill our names in the blank from a copy and paste transcript. He got to know us. In our first meeting, Mark wanted to know everything about us. How we met, how did we know that he/she was the one, what’s one thing you admire the most about your fiancé, etc. Actually we didn’t talk business until the very end of our meeting.

Mark went over with us exactly what he was going to say. He helped us with last minute changes and suggestions. For example, he suggested we add a flower vase ritual where we had our in-laws, best man, and maid-of-honor, place a flower in the vase to represent the union of our families and friends.

Mark put into our ceremony my husband’s love of comics and my love of Shakespeare. Mark even read Shakespeare’s Sonnet 116 for our ceremony. Everyone was telling us how much they loved the ceremony and how great Mark was.

Not only did Mark help personalized the ceremony he also helped us spiritually and logistically. He arrived early well before the ceremony and spoke to us separately in our dressing rooms to review the ceremony one last time and just to see how we were doing. Weeks before the wedding, Mark called the venue and set up with them what he needed for the ceremony. It became one less thing for us to worry about.

Overall, Mark made our ceremony “our” ceremony. It was romantic, at times funny, and personal. Everyone said how much they loved Mark and that the ceremony was “us” from beginning to end. We highly recommend One Heart Personalized Ceremonies and Mark Giller, and we wish we could give him more than five stars.

From the moment we met Mark we felt comfortable and supported. Mark patiently guided us throughout our wedding planning. He took the time to get to know us and created a ceremony that perfectly reflected our core beliefs, values and interests. Many of our guests told us how perfect the ceremony was. In fact, one of our guests is referring Mark to a newly engaged couple. We definitely recommend Mark to anyone who is getting married.

We used Norma as our officiant and couldn't have been happier! Have a look at the note I sent her the week after we returned home from our honeymoon:

"Where do I begin? Our day was absolutely perfect, in every way! From the family and friends to the perfect weather and beautiful venue to our ceremony and reception, we felt completely overwhelmed with love!

We were personally were beyond words with your ceremony! Norma, I hope everyone vocalized their amazement with you as well, because so many guests mentioned to us how terrific you were at creating a perfect, all encompassing and warm ceremony; one of the "best" many have ever seen! We couldn't agree more! It was such a joy having you officiate our wedding!

I'll be frank, you were the one and only officiant we met as we began our search. But it was your warmth and palpable joy for the purpose and service you provide that convinced us you were the perfect person for us. Even from our initial correspondence, yours spoke clearly to us far more so than any other contact we initiated. You fully understand and convey the importance of the process and it makes us want to work for YOU throughout our relationship to develop the ceremony we'll love and cherish forever. While the individual questionnaires were lengthy, they were so enjoyable to respond to and really well designed so you truly get to know us!

So thank you. Thank you for helping us have the best day of our lives! Thank you for doing what you do, how you do it!"

Truly excellent at what they do! Mark and Norma stayed for the cocktail hour as well which was so nice!!

My husband did quite a bit of research before we decided to hire Mark. The research paid off! Mark clearly invested significant time preparing our ceremony and was able to tweak several times based on our needs. He was also very flexible working with us over the phone and online since we were planning the wedding from half way across the country. He brought significant experience to his role; we were in good hands. From our guests' perspective, several mentioned how personal the ceremony seemed. Overall I would happily recommend Mark!

He listened intently to what we wanted to include in our wedding and wrote the most beautiful ceremony that was very personal and sincere. Every one of our guests asked where we found him! Mark is such a genuinely kind man and spends an incredible amount of time perfecting each ceremony to suit the couples' wishes. We couldn't recommend him any higher.

She listened to us and she developed and delivered a ceremony that we adored. We wanted it to be respectful of religion without being religious. We wanted it to be meaningful without being too sweet. And we wanted some personal touches so that you knew it was our wedding. She did it just right!!!

We highly recommend Norma to all.

I spoke with Norma over the phone one time and knew she would provide my husband and I with a perfect wedding ceremony. After speaking with her she sent my husband and I a comprehensive questionnaire that we had to answer separately, which asked questions about us as a couple. After we sent our finished questionnaires to her she created a beautiful wedding ceremony that reflected my husband and I as a couple. Our wedding ceremony involved both sets of parents which was really nice and Norma spoke beautiful words about my husband and I. The ceremony even made my husband choke up a little! She did a perfect job explaining the amazing love my husband and I feel for each other. Thank you Norma for making our wedding ceremony truly unforgettable!!

Love,
Mr. and Mrs. TJ S.

Mark Giller officiated our wedding on April 28, 2012 this year at the Essex House.

We received many comments on how lovely and personal the ceremony was. This was due to Mark's carefully chosen words and readings (we let him give us suggestions for readings, which you do not have to do). Over a couple of sessions he crafted a ceremony that captured what we wanted to convey to our guests. He sent reminders of some important information for us throughout the planning and displayed a high degree of professionalism on the wedding day itself.

Mark at One Heart ceremonies really made our wedding special. We absolutely loved our personalized ceremony. Our guests also commented on how personalized and special our ceremony was. They could really feel and understand how tender our love is for each other and Mark captured that. He also really captured some humorous aspects about our relationship and we loved that as well. It was just so us. This was by far the best part for me about our wedding.

Also, I would mention that we really enjoyed the process that Mark has to ask you questions about your relationship so that he can put those things into the ceremony. We liked taking time out of the wedding planning to reinforce why we were getting married; it grounded us throughout the planning process as well. Thank you, Mark!! You're the best. Cassandra and Chris

I can't say enough about Norma. When we first met her, we knew we wanted her to perform our ceremony. She has a genuine kindness and warmth about her. She was sincere and thoughtful. At our second meeting when she went read through our ceremony I was in tears. She captured who we were and wrote an incredibly touching ceremony. Fast foward to our wedding day on October 29, 2011. Yes that was the most unexpected winter storm to hit our area. The snow caused tremendous havoc on the roads. We were fearful that our wedding might get cancelled because we didn't know how anyone would get there. Miraculously Norma arrived ! It was not an easy trip at all; in fact it was quite dangerous. The fact that she attempted to get there, and successfully did so, proves how much she cared. To say that I appreciate her dedication and professionalism is an understatement. And while the power was out at my venue, she performed the most touching ceremony by candlelight;even without a mic. I know it was my wedding, but I think I might have had the most romantic and touching ceremonies of all time. Thank you Norma for making our day so special and putting in so much extra effort.

My wife and I were blessed to have Mark Giller as our officiant for our wedding. He crafted a beautiful ceremony for us that was loving, spiritual, insightful, and in our case with a touch of humor that befitted the occasion. I cannot thank Mark enough for helping make our wedding a most memorable event for our immediate families and close friends that were in attendance. I highly recommend "One Heart" to anyone who desires a beautiful ceremony. My wife and I met several times with Mark to discuss our dreams, our wishes, our philosophies and our relationship. We handed the torch to Mark and he ran with it and created everything we dreamed of.

Norma,
From the very beginning, we loved working with you. At our first meeting, we knew that you were the officiant for us! We couldn't have asked for a nicer, more genuine person than you, to give us the greatest gift, of marrying us. We loved how you incorporated my husband and I as individuals, and also as a couple, into our wedding ceremony. Trust me when I say that our family, friends, and guests all raved about you. Chuck and I can't thank you enough!

My husband and I were recently married on August 28, 2010. Our ceremony was performed by Norma of One Heart Ceremonies. I cannot even begin to express how thankful we were to have met Norma. The ceremony that she prepared for us was more than we ever expected. She really personalized the ceremony to suit our needs. As soon as you meet her, you can see that she is such a warm, kind person and as she performs the ceremony your guests see it as well. Before the wedding, I was so nervous and Norma was able to talk me through it and calm me down. I am so appreciative of everything she did for us that special day. Some of the wedding guests even approached me afterward to say how wonderful the ceremony was from beginning to end. She was truly the beginning to a perfect wedding day!

We had Norma from One heart ceremonies for our wedding on 8/7/2010 and I do not think we could have been any more satisfied with her services. Form the minute we spoke to her it was like speaking to our best friend. We planned our wedding from across the country (Oregon to New York)and Norma made it so simple. She took the time to get to know us and provide us with the best service. Her service was so personalized and heart felt that guest at our wedding thought she was a family friend of ours. During the chaos of getting ready she met with both myself and my now husband seperatly and gave us kind loving words that calmed us and helped us tune everything else out and focus on the love around us. She was also able to include my daughter from a previous relationship in a very special way. Everyone commented and they were amazed with her words and how well she knew us. We will most definitely be refering her to others.
Thank you so much Norma.

My husband as I were married by Norma on Aug. 5th 2010. It was important to us that we have an officiant that really understood exactly what the day meant to us and who we were as people. Norma was just that. She really took the time to get to know both of us individually and was able to create the perfect ceremony for our day. Norma makes you feel comfortable from the moment you meet her and she never treats you as if you're just another job. In a way an officiant is one of the most important vendor decisions you can make. It's the person responsible for actually joining you as husband and wife. There are cheaper ways to go, but not if you want someone willing to take the time to make the day 100% about you and your husband to be. I can't imagine having had anyone else up there with us at that special moment.

Mark Giller from One-Heart Ceremonies officiated our wedding in 2009. After filling out lengthy questionnaires about ourselves and the type of wedding service we envisioned, and meeting with Mark in person, both my wife and I felt as if he understood us and was able to craft the ceremony that was right for us. Rev. Giller is such a warm hearted man with a great personality and sense of humor. It was amazing working with him. Many of our guests told us they thought he was great and that our ceremony was very unique and special. When it was time to plan our baby blessing in March it was natural to call Mark and have him officiate that ceremony as well. By now he feels like part of the family. He has seen my wife and I through the two most important events of our lives. I would strongly recommend Reverend Giller and One-Heart Ceremonies.

Mark was a pleasure to work with, and took a great deal of interest in developing a ceremony that suited our specific needs. His warm presence and good cheer really made the ceremony come alive; a lot of guests went out of their way to compliment the officiant.

Mark has done this many times and has all the logistics/administrative steps down pat. That took a lot of stress off of our plate.

We would recommend Mark Giller without hesitation to anyone interested in a personalized ceremony. He was a great part of our wedding day.

Mark Giller was our officiant for our wedding and we could not have asked for a more professional yet personalized experience (as the name says). He really sat down to get to know us and catered the ceremony to our style. He also made great recommendations as most people have no idea where to even begin in planning a ceremony and vows.

He also has some great anecdotes about other couples he's gotten to know!

Mark Giller was the officiant for my wedding yesterday. He came to us through a recommendation when our minister left our church. There were times when I wondered whether we should have chosen another Unitarian Universalist minister but ultimately, the ceremony that we ended up having with Mark was great and I have no regrets with choosing him as our officiant. Mark was warm and friendly towards us and seemed to invest time and effort into crafting our ceremony. He incorporated everything we asked for and was very supportive of what we wanted to do.

I was a bundle of nerves about the ceremony up until this happened: At one point before the ceremony, Mark smiled widely at me and gently said, "I've done this before." to which I laughed a little and replied, "Well, I haven't... this is my first!" I can't explain it, but there was just something about that interaction that helped put me at ease because if he was confident with what we had planned then it meant that it would be all right.

Afterwards, we received many nice comments about our ceremony. I passed his contact info along to a friend who is currently shopping for a wedding officiant for an interfaith wedding.

There were times when I wondered whether we should have chosen another Unitarian Universalist minister but ultimately, the ceremony that we ended up having with Mark was great and I have no regrets with choosing him as our officiant. Mark was warm and friendly towards us and seemed to invest time and effort into crafting our ceremony. He incorporated everything we asked for and was very supportive of what we wanted to do.

I was a bundle of nerves about the ceremony up until this happened: At one point before the ceremony, Mark smiled widely at me and gently said, "I've done this before." to which I laughed a little and replied, "Well, I haven't... this is my first!" I can't explain it, but there was just something about that interaction that helped put me at ease because if he was confident with what we had planned then it meant that it would be all right.

Afterwards, we received many nice comments about our ceremony. I passed his contact info along to a friend who is currently shopping for a wedding officiant for an interfaith wedding. Read less

Best wedding decision that we made! We knew that we wanted to have a special ceremony that was really about us but incoporated our different religions. Through our meetings with Norma she created a romantic and meanful wedding ceremony just for us. She was always quick to respond to emails and is very professional. Our guests were very impressed by the ceremony and felt that it was one of a kind!

Mark was a great officiant for our wedding. He was open to changes we wanted in ceremony and was a pleasure to work with. He definitely helped take some of the stress out of the day.
