She also goes to destination locations like Santa Barbara, Big Sur, Yosemite, Joshua Tree, Tahoe, and Sequoia.
Her ceremonies are always inclusive and LGBTQIA+ friendly! Your ceremony can be as unique as the two of you. She will do wedding ceremonies with no mention of god or a little "shout out" to God for Grandma, Heidi also does vow renewals, and elopements. She officiates spiritual, non-religious, non-denominational, Pagan, Agnostic, Buddhist, Earth-based, and Unitarian events. She's "married" over 1100 people since 2016!

As a former wedding planner, she will make this journey simple and fun! With her years of experience in theatre, doing voice-overs for radio, and TV, her ASMR voice, and her love of writing, she has unique qualifications to make this an easy and fun experience for you! Your ceremony should reflect both of you. It should also tell your personal story. She refuses to do long and boring ceremonies, she loves doing awesome ceremonies! She loves what she does!
Her world's filled with love and laughter! She loves going on adventures, sharing weekly "date days" with her husband, and spending an amazing day with her couples! Sometimes she gets to do both, Alan's an experienced, professional and romantic, brilliant, award-winning wedding photographer! They do elopements too, Google Alan and Heidi Elopements for more info.
Heidi and her husband are still madly in love and best friends after almost 25 years together! They share their lives with too many adorable "furkids". They love hiking in the mountains with their Samoyed dog, Gypsy and walking on the beach, watching Marvel, DC Superheroes, Star Trek, and Star Wars movies (they don't choose sides)!
It's your ceremony not mine, so let's create the ceremony you never dreamed could happen!

Hey, it’s Heidi…my world is filled with love and laughter! I have been an ordained professional wedding officiant since 2016 and have "married" almost a 1000 people in weddings and elopements in California and other states too! Before being an officiant, I was a wedding planner for many years. Making sure you have fun and love your ceremony is always the most important part of what I do.
I am very passionate about enjoying life, going on adventures, and sharing a magical day with my couples. I treasure all of my couples and will create an environment where everyone safe and accepted for who they are.
Yes, I am very LGBTQ friendly!
I am going to make this easy and fun for everyone. I’ve been married to the love of my life since June 23, 2000, Alan is an award-winning wedding photographer and is one of the most romantic men I know. We share our lives with two semi-wonderful sons and too many pets. We go hiking, cycling, love reading, watching The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, The Mandelorian, Star Trek, Star Wars and Superhero movies and we enjoy hanging out at the beach or the mountains on our day off. Fun fact – I have never met an animal I didn’t instantly love! I have been in theatre since I was 14 and I have done voiceovers for radio and TV, I have an ASMR voice to help keep you calm, in addition to being a professional writer.
Because of the experiences and passions in my life, I can help you have an awesome ceremony that fits your style, your theme, your family, and both of you.
My wedding ceremonies range from romantic, spiritual, interfaith ceremonies, non-religious to mildly religious, vow renewals, and more. You can see more about me at LoveStoryVows.com. I refuse to do a long and boring ceremony, I want to create a ceremony, you both love!

Simply put, I really enjoy working with Heidi! I've worked with her since 2006 and have always found her to be upbeat and positive, which really helps with weddings as there can be a certain amount of pressure to make sure everything is as close to perfect as you can get. And that's where Heidi shines: she's calm and even-keeled and she listens to your thoughts, concerns, questions, and addresses them in a manner that helps you to feel calm and less stressed about not only the ceremony, but the whole wedding planning process. Just one call to her and you'll know exactly what I'm talking about. She's one of the best!
Heidi from Love Story Vows is an exceptional person, colleague, and professional! I have known Heidi for over 20 years! And it wasn't difficult to choose my wedding officiant for myself and my husband. Heidi was our first choice! And what an amazing ceremony it was! She helped us incorporate our kids, make it unique, and certainly brought laughter and tears to everyone! She helped me stay calm during the planning process. She stayed in touch daily. And she even stayed with us all night to celebrate! Thank you Heidi....so so much!
I have worked with many officiants throughout my time as an event coordinator. Heidi with Love Story Vows has been my favorite. She makes it a priority to cater to the couples every need. She is attentive, kind and professional. You can see how passionate she is about what she does from the first conversation. I would highly recommend Heidi to anyone looking for her services. She and her husband are both very involved in this industry and definitely know what they are doing.
