THE HEART OF THE COUPLE IS THE HEART OF THE CEREMONY.
In all that I do, I focus on YOU! Together, with couples, I work to ‘co-create’ ceremonies that reflect the couples love, hopes and intentions. I utilize language, imagery and rituals that are meaningful for the fa' mily 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.Whether I am leading a spiritual, interfaith, or a non-religious ceremony, I offer the same respect, joy and confidence.
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 have over twenty years of experience in the design, coordination and presentation of rituals, ceremonies and public moments for reflection
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 am experienced, professional and confident.
I have worked as a chaplain in a variety of healthcare 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

Rev Stephanie was wonderful!
We were so honored to have Rev. Stephanie officiate our wedding on October 25, 2019! Stephanie is truly a wonderful person, she is so sweet and kind. The first time meeting her, I felt comfortable and we had an instant connection. One of the most important things to us on our wedding day was to have a meaningful ceremony that reflected who we are. Stephanie accomplished all of this and more. The ceremony was absolutely perfect. She made the planning process stress free and fun. We really enjoyed meeting with her to plan the ceremony and she gave us excellent advice and tips on how to incorporate the things that we wanted. She was very accommodating for a last minute change that we made during the rehearsal dinner and she sent me a copy of the updated ceremony that night (so sorry about that). If you want your wedding ceremony to be special and meaningful, we would absolutely recommend Rev. Stephanie to help complete your special day. We can't thank you enough!Sent on 11/12/2019

Perfect, sweet, and unique ceremony
Stephanie was fun, sweet, very knowledgeable & just nice to be around. She helped us come up with a perfect and super unique ceremony, added some really thoughtful touches of her own, was easy to get in touch with, and helped me work in a Handfasting! She even handed me a much needed tissue during my husbands vows! Stephanie truly helped make it the perfect day!Sent on 11/01/2019

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
