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 invite you to explore and learn more about my services creating and performing personalized wedding ceremonies and more!. I have eighteen years of experience in the design, coordination and presentation of rituals, ceremonies and public moments for reflection

In all that I do, I focus on YOU! Together, with couples, families and individuals, I work to ‘co-create’ ceremonies that reflect the love, hopes and intentions of those being celebrated and recognized. I utilize language, imagery and rituals that are meaningful for the family 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. Every baby welcomed into a family deserves to be honored in a manner that is meaningful and suitable for their family. Whether I am leading a spiritual, interfaith, or a non-religious ceremony, I offer the same respect, joy and confidence.

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 have worked as a chaplain in a variety of healthcare institutions, including hospital, skilled nursing and rehabilitation facilities, continuing care retirement communities, hospice and mental health 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 Read less

Stephanie is absolutely amazing to work with, I could not have asked for a better experience. From our first meeting I could tell that she truly cares about every couple that she works with and gives 110% into making your ceremony true to your personalities and nothing less then perfect! She was there for me every step of the way and worked very closely with me when it came to picking readings, Tweaking our vows to make them perfect for us and just planning our ceremony in general. I had a few surprises for my husband that I wanted to incorporate into our ceremony and Stephanie very willingly and happily helped me pull them off perfectly. She is very attentive to the couples that she works with and regularly kept in touch with me via email to check in and see if there was anything she could do for me, She regularly made herself available for any questions that I had even if they were not directly related to our ceremony. Her knowledge base is amazing and her personality is one that will put you at ease and soothingly calm any nerves/jitters that you may have on your big day! I HIGHLY recommend Stephanie to anyone who is looking for a ceremony officiant, you will not be disappointed she is an amazing person inside and out.

She made it very simple for us to put together a perfect ceremony. She has a great sense of humor to really lighten any stress from the big day. My wife and I highly recommend Stephanie as she was a blessing to work with for our wedding.

Rev. Stephanie Thompson was an absolute joy to work with for our wedding. My husband and I were very nervous looking for the right officiant - upon our first meeting with Rev. Stephanie, we knew that we had found the perfect person to guide us through the most important day of our life. She is kind, caring, compassionate, loving and very professional - with an open heart and a contagious smile. Thank you, Rev. Stephanie, for everything......Ed and Jennifer Long

Stephanie is a true professional who knows her stuff and it shows! She made the ceremony planning process a breeze and I trusted her completely- I didn't even request to read over the ceremony beforehand! Her attention to detail during our planning meetings resulted in a personalized ceremony which many people complimented us on. I would not hesitate to use Stephanie in the future- perhaps for a child's baptism?! :)

Our wedding was on Saturday, December 3, 2016, it was the most amazing day. Stephanie was such a pleasure to work with, easy going and a true professional. There was no pressure, she offered ideas, but was never pushy about anything at all. She provided us with an array of ideas for our ceremony, and we customized it based on all of her suggestions. It was a perfect ceremony and everyone truly enjoyed it, especially my husband and I. I would recommend her for from the bottom of my heart for any event you may need her for. Thank you again Stephanie!!

Heart Ceremonies: Reverend Stephanie Thompson was simply the best! She was recommended by our venue and soon after contacting her I realized she was also the officiant for my cousins wedding which I had attended a few years ago. She sent us a ton of ceremony suggestions and ideas which really helped us decide on which parts we would include in our own ceremony. We met and discussed ourselves, our wedding and our vision for our wedding at a fairly local restaurant which was conveniently located for all of us and the meeting was great. Stephanie is very friendly and took the time to truly get to know us which ultimately helped when preparing our ceremony. Our ceremony itself was beautiful and perfect and it was because of her that it went so well. I will continue to recommend her to others in the future. She was a pleasure to work with.

We first met Reverend Stephanie at a bridal show at local wedding venue. I immediately felt a connection to her and knew that I wanted her to her to be a part of our wedding.

She is so down to earth and easy to talk to. She has a bubbly personality, a warm smile and a great sense of humor. She gives all the tools neccessary for personalizing your ceremony and even gives suggestions for writing your own vows.

She met with us weeks before our wedding to get a true sense of who we are, learn about our relationship and what brought us together, talk about our family dynamics and what we wanted for our wedding ceremony. We spent a few hours with her that day and had a great time getting to know each other.

She added her insight during the vow writing process and helped organize the elements of our ceremony so that everything flowed together nicely. Our wedding ceremony perfectly portrayed our relationship and love.

We recieved so many compliments on our ceremony and our family and guests all thought very highly of Reverend Stephanie. I would definitely recommend her to anyone planning a wedding. You will not be disappointed!

Could not express how happy I was with our ceremony! Picking an officiant can be difficult, but once I spoke to Rev. Stephanie I knew she was perfect! She is very out going and personable. She was so willing and eager to let me help with the ceremony and write parts of it myself. Many other officiants that I spoke to refused to let me add in my own "special touches". She really helps you out along the way to make your final day even more memorable!
