CREATING AND PERFORMING PERSONALIZED WEDDING CEREMONIES
Services available Berks, Bucks, Carbon, Lehigh, Monroe, Montgomery & Northampton Counties of Pennsylvania. Services also available in Hunterdon, Mercer, Sussex & Warren Counties of New Jersey.
It is a great privilege to create and perform ceremonies that celebrate the fullness of love and life. I invite you to explore and learn more about my services creating and performing personalized wedding ceremonies and more!. I have eighteen years of experience in the design, coordination and presentation of rituals, ceremonies and public moments for reflection
In all that I do, I focus on YOU! Together, with couples, families and individuals, I work to 'co-create' ceremonies that reflect the love, hopes and intentions of those being celebrated and recognized. I utilize language, imagery and rituals that are meaningful for the family or couple I am working with. I understand that a wedding ceremony is about the couple being married, not the person performing the ceremony. I perform weddings for same sex couples without any hesitation or question. Every baby welcomed into a family deserves to be honored in a manner that is meaningful and suitable for their family. Whether I am leading a spiritual, interfaith, or a non-religious ceremony, I offer the same respect, joy and confidence.
I can legally perform weddings in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania and in the State of New Jersey! I was not ordained just to perform weddings. I did not receive my ordination online.
I have worked as a chaplain in a variety of healthcare institutions, including hospital, skilled nursing and rehabilitation facilities, continuing care retirement communities, hospice and mental health settings. In my professional work as a chaplain I was responsible for assisting others with their spiritual needs. I encouraged those I cared for to use what they believed in, not what I believed in. I supported patients and families who had no spiritual or faith beliefs or practices as well. Meaning and emotion, value and hope can be found and recognized by all of us. I use this same approach when working with couples, families and individuals to plan and create meaningful rituals and ceremonies. -Stephanie

The Perfect Officiant for Our Wedding Day
Jon and I were truly lucky to have Rev. Stephanie officiate our wedding on August 2nd, 2019. She is such a kind hearted and lovely person. When we had our meetings with her before the big day she payed attention to every little detail. She asked us about our backstories leading up to how Jon and I first met and I liked that she wanted to get to know us on a personal level and not only business. To us that made our wedding ceremony more meaningful and she wanted everything to be just perfect for us. There wasn't any stress during the ceremony process. She has a guide to help make deciding what we wanted said at the ceremony easy and worry free. She also gave us good advice when it came down to us writing our own vows. I highly recommend Rev. Stephanie to officiate your wedding day.Sent on 09/02/2019

Our wedding was absolutely beautiful and amazing, and a big part of it was due to our WONDERFUL officiant, Stephanie Thompson! From our first exchange of messages, to meeting for dinner and discussing the timeline, to sending us every bit of information you could possibly need to have a seamless ceremony, she did it all and then some! She was always available for questions or opinions. And when it came to the big day, she was so cool calm and collected, probably because she’s done so many in the past !! Having such a friendly and well spoken presence officiating our wedding made it the amazing day we can now look back on and remember fondly. Thank you thank you thank you Stephanie !!!Sent on 07/19/2019

Rev. Stephanie helped us plan our ceremony personalized to us. She is very flexible in schedule and made conversations possible over video chat, when meeting in person was not a possibility do to location. She made us feel comfortable the day of the wedding and went with the flow when my husband decided to switch up a word in the vows :) We could not have been any happier with our ceremony.Sent on 06/26/2019
Brining the gift of Love to every Ceremony We work with Heart Ceremonies: Rev. Stephanie Anne Thompson often at many, many venues in and around the Lehigh Valley. She always provides just the right mix of what fit’s the couple and leaves them with a message, that if followed, will serve them well, in love, for many years to come! Reflections Creative Photography highly recommends Heart Ceremonies for your Wedding Vows and Celebration of Love!!
Reverend Stephanie is a personable professional. On a day when many couples are understandably nervous, she is able to put them at ease with her calming personality and sense of humor. Her ceremonies are not "one-size-fits-all", but rather customized for each couple to what they want. She arrives early and makes sure everything is ready to go before anyone from the bridal party steps foot in the ceremony. Reverend Stephanie was very easy to work with, and I look forward to our next wedding together.
Rev Stephanie is won of the most awesome officiants we get to work with She is so much fun and exciting She will make your ceremony totally the best
