Journeys of the HeartPennsylvania
Journeys of the Heart creates and performs weddings, same-sex marriage ceremonies, baby blessings, funerals, and other services. We offer beautiful and customized spiritual or secular ceremonies to suit your unique background and tastes. We have a wealth of traditional and contemporary options, and we invite your ideas, readings, rituals, and vows.
Journeys of the Heart’s officiants believe that the ceremony itself is not just the beginning but the heart of the entire wedding day as it is the purpose of your gathering! And to us, wedding guests are not just observers in an audience, but an extension of the couple and your families as they are the people you chose to be with you at this beginning of your marriage journey. Guests who have attended a wedding officiated by Journeys of the Heart come away feeling like it was a meaningful experience for them too.
No matter how you envision your ceremony our officiants are skilled at capturing your love and your own unique story to help create the magic that is the ceremony. We are here to help you facilitate the wedding ceremony you have always wished for and with our guidance and support your wedding becomes your own personal, wonderful and unforgettable celebration.
We share the idea that the entire wedding ceremony planning process should be easy, interesting, romantic and fun, a truly special time in those important months and weeks leading up to your wedding day. We offer a complimentary, no-obligation consultation for us to connect and chat about your wedding before reserving our services for your date. We cannot wait to hear from you to begin the fun!
Naila Francis performed my daughter's wedding ceremony. She was perfect! The ceremony was personal and touching. Naila worked with the wedding couple to gather information and give them meaningful vows. All of our guests were impressed with her lovely manner and genuine warmth. Thank you, Naila.
Susan Harte, 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!
From the first moment I contacted Journeys of the Heart, I knew that I had found the right place. 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 would truly recommend Susanne Wilson of Journeys of the Heart to everyone.
Diane Smith-Hoban of Journeys of the Hearts was amazing to work with. She listened to us and helped us through the planning process including us in it which made our ceremony 110% about us. 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. Everyone noticed how meaningful and personalized the ceremony was, not just us! I highly recommend Diane for a wedding officiant; she made the process of wedding planning (which can get very stressful) enjoyable!
Journeys, and in particular our officiant Gabby, came to our rescue at the last minute, less than 2 weeks before our wedding, and put together a perfect ceremony! They were also very flexible in scheduling our rehearsal. Gabby was kind, professional, reliable, and overall such a pleasure to work with. She was completely respectful of our preferences and made really helpful suggestions based on her experience. We couldn't have asked for a more wonderful officiant, thank you!
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.
