Our Day, Our Way
We decided to elope 2 weeks ahead of time. We then realized with COVID the government building were shut down and there was a delay to get our marriage license. We kept Lois updated with these events, then 4 days before our wedding we asked her to officiate. She managed to put together a beautiful ceremony. Never meeting us (only having us fill out a quick questionnaire) and only talking on the phone for 10 minutes, she somehow made a ceremony that was perfect for us. She used quotes that would be impactful for us, followed traditions and rituals that we wanted, and made the whole day perfect. Harmony Gardens was a beautiful spot with a little gazebo for our little dance party afterwards and lots of amazing photo spots.Sent on 07/07/2020

Lois was so wonderful to work with! She is truly great at what she does, and we are beyond happy with how our ceremony turned out. The ceremony she wrote was such a beautiful representation of our story and our beliefs and values. We had so many guests saying how amazing the ceremony was afterward. Highly recommend Lois!!Sent on 11/14/2020

Perfect Elopement, Lois even incorporated our 11 year old son into our wedding. Very professional, friendly, fun and super involved into making our elopement dream come true. Would recommend and definitely use again for our vow renewal.Sent on 11/04/2020
The thing about Lois is ability to adapt seamlessly to a bride and grooms collective personalities. When she steps up to officiate she has everyone's undivided attention. She is upbeat and humorous and at the same time deadly serious. Lois is so versatile I don't think there's any style ceremony she hasn't presided over. If you want the very best wedding experience you need to talk to Lois. I highly recommend her with 100% confidence.
When I see Lois Heckman officiating at a wedding, I know all is well. She is professional, calm, and presents a personal ceremony unique to each couple. No two services are the same. Lois brings 100% to every wedding. She cares about her couples. It really shows. I highly recommend her.
Lois is heads above the rest when it comes to celebrants. Her ceremonies are deeply personal and enjoyable. The tone is affectionate, professional, and enjoyable. She takes time to get to know her couples and really takes pride in what she does. We enjoy working with her and know that the ceremony will go off without a hitch when she is the one helping couples start their new lives together.
