Lois was an absolute dream! Book her now before she fills up :)
Lois was our celebrant for our ceremony and she was an absolutely delight to work with. We cannot say enough amazing things about her. She was very supportive leading up to the event as we discussed our ceremony vision and we felt she truly wanted to make our ceremony something unique for us. And that she did! People were blown away by our ceremony and we have Lois to thank for that - literally people said it was the best ceremony they have ever experienced. We wanted a personal ceremony which felt intimate but also included some important traditions (13 coins-Arras/Irish Blessings/tree planting together) and our back story of how we came about and why we love each other. Lois beautifully weaved together a narrative that honored our past/heritage, our parents, embraced the present and got us excited about our future. While the ceremony was happening, I almost pinched myself because I felt like I was in a dream because it was so perfect. Lois is authentic, loving, detailed, funny (at just the right times) and she is a very talented writer. A ceremony is incredibly important part of the wedding that no couple should overlook or de-prioritize. Look no further and book Lois right away before she fills up. Would give her 6 stars if I could. Lois, we want to thank from the bottom of our hearts. You were absolute perfection!Sent on 11/16/2018

Cannot recommend Lois enough
I couldn't ask for a better celebrant for our wedding! I am glad we were able to share our special day with Lois. My husband and I were completely clueless when it came to how to plan a wedding ceremony, Lois was there every step of the way to help us.Sent on 05/28/2019

A true dedicated professional
Within the past 24 hour Lois officiated my brother’s wedding, which was held at the top of camelback. She arrived early to allay any last minute concerns that we have had and was able to respectfully answer questions relative to the flow of the ceremony. She did an amazing job, Lois is is a true professional, and was able to capture both the bride and groom’s unique personalities to perform a truly personal and loving ceremony, one that was talked favorably about all night. Thank you Lois for going above and beyond and for successfully combating the blustery day and for essentially setting a positive tone for the remainder of the evening.Sent on 06/23/2019
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.
