We couldn’t have made a better choice when we chose Mr Norman to officiate our wedding ( 15years vow renewal). From the time we spoke on the phone, I knew he was the type of person we wanted to conduct our ceremony. Always ponctual and made sure the ceremony was tailored to us. We felt like we’ve known him for so long! Even our guests can’t stop talking about how great and beautiful the ceremony was. We had a beautiful wedding and We would highly recommend Mr Norman.Apr 30, 2019VerifiedNorman Conner, Wedding Officiant's reply
Sitou, you and Thierry have beautiful kids and your wedding was amazing. When you walked out to the same Luther Vandross song that I had at my own wedding I thought I was going to lose it. You were such a great couple to work with and I was honored to be your officiant.
Norman was the perfect officiant for our wedding. It was invaluable to have someone listen to our vision and then work with us to make it happen. Norman was professional from our first meeting to the day of the wedding and provided us with great selections for the actual vows- poems and even added his own finishing touch to the ceremony that helped made it a perfect day for us . We are really happy we selected Norman!!Jun 11, 2019VerifiedNorman Conner, Wedding Officiant's reply
Thanks so much for your kind words Anita. I will always think of you and Arnold every time I hear a Bee Gees song. You all were awesome to work with and a beautiful couple.
I couldn't be any happier working with this amazing fantastic man! He is hands down the greatest officiant anyone could ever want. He spoke in a loud professional loving manner at our wedding ceremony, he helped us orchestrate the sequence of events for the ceremony, and he went above and beyond the call of duty when he was running back and forth relaying messages moments before the ceremony to make sure everything went smooth. I would recommend Norman to anyone and everyone. Will post pictures later when they come in of the ceremony.Dec 7, 2018VerifiedNorman Conner, Wedding Officiant's reply
William and Jillian you two are a wonderful young couple and I loved working with you. I loved hearing your story and seeing how strong both of you are in your own ways. Thanks for your military service and I wish only the best for your marriage.
My husband and I were under a pretty tight deadline to pull a wedding together with an upcoming deployment. After contacting other officiants, Norman made the decision for us so easy. Norman is genuine, patient, and has an amazing attention to detail! From our initial meet and greet to conversations leading up to the wedding and all the way to wedding day, Norman made our wedding planning a breeze! My husband and I were blown away at the alter with the ceremony that Norman conducted. We received SO many compliments from our guests about what an amazing job Norman did with sharing our love story. Pleased is an understatement. Norman exceeded our expectations! If you are looking for someone to put that much detail and effort into your special day, Norman is the person you should call. Thank you Norman! Love, the Blooms!Jul 17, 2019VerifiedNorman Conner, Wedding Officiant's reply
Thank you so much for the kind words Allison. I loved working with you and getting to know Virgil as well. You two are a wonderful couple and I'm so glad that you, Virgil, family and friends enjoyed the ceremony.
Norman is a fantastic person, competent and compassionate in assisting us in our wedding plans. We traveled from Texas and went on the Chesapeake Bay Christmas cruise. We were always in touch with Norman to verify all information. He went out of his way and met us at the ship in Alexandria Va and drove us to the court house to apply for our marriage license then he drove us to the Carlyle Mansion and officiated our wedding. His beautiful wife Giva so beautifully played a flute during our wedding. We did not have time to choose our vows but Norman must have listened to us talk a few times on the internet with him because he chose the perfect vows I would definitely recommend Norman for your wedding planning. Do not hesitate to get in touch with Norman, he’s the best!Jan 16, 2019VerifiedNorman Conner, Wedding Officiant's reply
Cher I will always remember working with you and Wailand. Your wedding proved that love has no limits and it's never too late to find love. Thank you for the honor of performing your ceremony.
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?I am willing to work with clients over pricing. Sometimes I will quote a different price than my average depending on distance or time involved. Each wedding is different so I try to work within reasonable rates for time involved. I offer premarital counseling and post-marital coaching for separate fees.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?I like to get to know the person and their story. I think it is important that a Wedding Day be their day and not allow others to interfere with this special day. I usually sit down with the person or at least have a long conversation over the phone to determine exactly how they want the day to go. I will offer my advice, ideas, and experience for their consideration.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I am an ordained minister and I have performed weddings for over 25 years. The thrill of each wedding though is that it is different and so even after 25 years, I'm constantly getting educated to new ways of making a person's wedding special.
