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

Say yes to Lois Heckman!
Wow, we were so impressed with Lois Heckman from her first message all the way until we left her property! She responds quickly and does her very best to accommodate you (even on short notice.) The way she tailored the ceremony "script" to our own story was incredible! How she took the extra time and creativity with this was very special. Not to mention her lovely grounds, Harmony Gardens, which are beautiful even in the winter. I highly recommend Lois. You will not be disappointed, in fact you will get more than what you were expecting and you will be glad you chose her to marry you.Sent on 02/25/2019

A truly wonderful celebrant
My wife and I had a very intimate elopement, just us, Lois and one other witness to capture photographs. For us, it was one of the most beautiful moments of our lives. Lois prepared a ceremony that was incredibly meaningful, suited to us as a couple and elegant in its wording. We are very grateful to Lois for helping to make our wedding day so special.Sent on 01/10/2019
My fee is going up in 2020 but if you book me before June 1st you will be locked into my current rate.
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.
