Best officient ever! Norman got to know us and put together a beautiful, well thought out ceremony. He did a great job at personalizing it for us. It was exactly what we wanted and he helped make the day stress free for us! There are no words to express how much we just love him! Better than we could’ve imagined. Thank you!

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 courthouse 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!

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!

Norman was great. From the pre-wedding meet up and conversations, to calming us down when the DJ was running behind, to telling our story with the right amount of comedy and seriousness (what we were going for). Highly recommend!

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 make it a perfect day for us. We are really happy we selected Norman!!

Norman went above and beyond our expectations. He truly has a passion for helping couples take the next step. The level of professionalism, and attention to detail is admired by everyone who was in attendance. It was an honor to have Norman as our officiant. We endorse Norman 100% and will recommend him to all friends and family who could use his service. For anyone that's looking for an officiant, believe me when I say, choose Norman, you won't be disappointed. PS, Norman wore a yellow shirt because my wife's favorite color is yellow.

I could not be any happier working with this amazing, fantastic man! He is hands down the greatest officiant anyone could ever want. Many of my guests were coming up to me remarking that it was the best wedding ceremony they’ve ever been to. One of the most important things to us was to have an officiant who was good at public speaking. Norman is one of the best public speakers I’ve ever heard. 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. Norman went above and beyond to make our ceremony exactly what we wanted as well as making sure it was proper and had a good flow. He did an amazing job. He is a genuinely caring person and it really shows in his work, flexibility and communicativeness. He was patient and kind every step of the way and always put forth his best. My husband and I are so glad that Norman was our officiant. We would recommend Norman to anyone and everyone.

Norman was awesome to work with when my wife and I got married. He takes a lot of pride in working at his marriage, and has a lot of insight into conflict resolution, peacemaking, and creative ways to keep the romance alive! Recommend.

Norman was such a pleasure to work with, especially when my husband and I had to do most of the planning from out of state. He worked with us to make the ceremony as fun and serious as we liked. Most importantly, my new husband admitted that Norman made him feel at ease during the planning process and throughout the entire ceremony. Norman is super laid back and wants to make sure your day is special. He helped guide us through the waters of planning and was greatly appreciated. Would highly recommend!

Norman officiated our wedding over ten years ago and it was an excellent experience. He was attentive to how to make the ceremony reflect who we were and he was also creative. I could tell he wanted the ceremony to be exactly what we wanted and to be meaningful to us for years to come. I still remember so much of our ceremony, and I know that's not true for many people. Norman is flexible and thinks outside the box. A great officiant!

My Fiance (now wife!) and I had originally planned to have a friend officiate our ceremony but decided instead to have him in the wedding party..... we made this decision only 3 weeks beforehand and need to find a professional ASAP! After reviewing several officiants we selected Norman and set up a meeting with him. He took such an interest in our history and love during this meeting (and a couple emails) Norman gathered what he needed and wrote us an absolutely beautiful and personal wedding ceremony in a very short amount of time. When our big day came he was more than punctual and was such a reassuring face to see. Our ceremony went perfectly and we couldn't be happier to be married! Highly recommend Norman and Magnum Opus and will keep in touch with him in the future.

We couldn’t have made a better choice when we chose Mr. Norman to officiate our wedding (15 year 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 punctual 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.

In 2006, Norman Conner provided my husband and I with very wise and effective premarital counseling that greatly helped us navigate through the challenges of a second marriage and a blended family. Norman continues to provide us with trusted guidance and insight that helps us strengthen our marriage relationship and our commitment to one another.

Norm was instrumental in setting us up for a successful marriage. We talked through expectations and had a much better picture of married life after the wedding bliss was long past. We can't thank him enough for the twelve (and counting!) years of marriage he had a hand in bringing together. I can't think of anyone I would recommend more highly for marriage or relationship guidance.
