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

Stephanie is amazing to work with. She really takes the time to get to know you as a couple - she genuinely cares about you and wants to learn about your story. She tailored the ceremony to make it special for us - a beautiful ceremony - we couldn't be happier.

A Perfect Ceremony
Rev. Stephanie was such a pleasure to work with! From the very beginning, she was friendly, responsive, and really took a genuine interest in our wedding. We were able to meet with Stephanie in person before we booked with her, and she made sure that we had all of the information we needed for the planning process. Stephanie gave us a planning packet filled with ideas for each part of the ceremony. She really got to know Matt and me as a couple through our two meetings, and she created a ceremony that was personalized to us. She was also able to add humor to our ceremony, which we loved and the guests appreciated! We are so happy that she was part of our wedding day!
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
