Are you personalizing all aspects of your wedding celebration? Do you want a wedding ceremony that celebrates your hopes, dreams, traditions and your love? You can have the ceremony you want when I perform your ceremony! I perform personalized wedding ceremonies that celebrate YOU! Do you want a romantic and sentimental ceremony? YOU can have just what you want! I work with couples to ‘co-create’ their ceremony. My tagline is, "The Heart of the Couple Is the Heart of the Ceremony." This is more than just a cute saying; it is the focus of my work with every couple.

You can have a customized ceremony, one that reflects who you are, your hopes, dreams and love! I understand that a wedding ceremony is about the couple being married and not the person performing the ceremony. I welcome all faiths, cultures, and lifestyles; I have officiated religious, spiritual and civil ceremonies, both traditional and non-traditional. I provide couples with guidance for all aspects of their ceremony, and share a large e-book full of resources.

Couples have shared with me that my warm and professional manner helps you relax and enjoy your planning, rehearsal (optional) and ceremony. I am seminary educated with a Masters of Divinity degree and am an ordained minister. My education and professional experience has given me a strong and firm foundation in public speaking, use of my voice, crowd dynamics, ceremony flow and content, as well as the need to have a comfortable relationship with a couple. I have been officiating at all rites of passage for over sixteen years. I do not require premarital counseling to officiate at your wedding, but I do offer pre-marital coaching and support, if you want it. I welcome inquiries about other ceremonies as well, including Renewal of Vows, Civil Unions, Same Sex Weddings, Baby Blessings, Baptisms and Memorial/ Funeral Services.

Personalized wedding ceremonies performed in Bucks, Carbon, Lehigh, Monroe, Montgomery & Northampton Counties of Pennsylvania. Services also available in Hunterdon & Warren Counties of New Jersey. Read less

INFO FOR OFFICIANT

What officiant services do you provide?
Civil Union, Interfaith Ceremony, Non-religious Ceremony, Single Religion Ceremony
What religious affiliations do you serve?
Agnostic, Baha'i Faith, Buddhist, Christian (no denomination), Christian - Baptist, Christian - Episcopalian, Christian - Lutheran, Christian - Methodist, Christian - Presbyterian, Evangelical, Hindu, Jainism, Jewish
Can you accommodate the hearing impaired?
Yes
Are you willing to perform a ceremony at a non-religious site?
Yes! Private homes, a garden, local park, an outdoor ceremony site or on the shores of a lake, all are beautiful settings to be married.
What is your attire for the ceremony?
I often wear a celebrant's robe, which is similar to an academic robe. My robe is black and I wear a simple white stole over it. Neither the robe nor the stole have any religious symbols upon them. I can also wear a suit or suitable professional clothing. Please check out the photos for more information.
Are you flexible in the wording used throughout the ceremony, including the vows?
Yes! The words shared during a ceremony should reflect the couple being married. If you would prefer to have no spiritual or religious language, I can accomodate your wishes. It is YOUR WEDDING and the words should reflect YOU!
Do you allow the couple to write their own vows, if desired?
Of course! I have resources that can also assist couples with doing this.
Do you have a list of readings pre-selected, from which the couple must choose?
I have a variety of resources that I share with couples, including reading options and ideas! Couples choose EVERY aspect of their ceremony for the same price.
How long are your ceremonies?
Typically, with a processional and recessional, ceremonies are no longer than 20 minutes in length. Simple ceremonies are beautiful and do not feel rushed. Once a couple is both in front of me, the content of a ceremony is usually 12 - 15 minutes in length.
Do you require that premarital counseling be done?
I do not require premarital counseling. I do like to meet with the couple at least once face to face so that we get to know one another before the 'big day.' It is helpful to meet face to face, but it is not always necessary.
 
 Pre-marital couching and supportive counseling is available and optional.
Are you willing to perform pre-ceremony rehearsals?
I do participate and attend rehearsals. There is an additional fee for this of $100.
Do you supply a sound system?
No, I do not. I can very adequately project my voice and find that microphones are more often cumbersome and problematic. HOWEVER, if a couple wants me to use a microphone I AM MORE THAN WILLING TO DO SO. I am very open to talking about this concern and issue with couples. Microphones must be arranged and provided by the couple.

I can not express how much I enjoyed having Stephanie as our officiant. She was extremely helpful planning our ceremony and was very comfortable to work with! She preformed our friends wedding and they raved about her. She we began to email her regarding our wedding she was very responsive and sent us tons of information to plan the perfect ceremony. As well, she was fun and easy going which made the experience working with her wonderful. I would highly recommend any bride to have Stephanie perform their ceremony!

It was a pleasure planning our ceremony with Rev.Stephanie. We felt like we were working with an old friend. She took time to get to know "us". She was interested to learn about us, as a couple, as well as us, as individuals. She allowed us to customize a ceremony to our unique needs and wants. All of our guests complimented on the ceremony as we as the blessing she offered during the reception. It was such a pleasure working with her.

Reverend Stephanie is a godsend. What captured us at first was her website full of so much good stuff. We knew right away that she was professional and she loves what she does. It made us feel at ease and carried thru to our first meeting with her over coffee at Starbucks. She truly has a calling to counsel others and calmed my now husband before the ceremony by talking about their love of Mark Twain. She is a special person who cares and we are indebted to her for our lovely ceremony, formal yet spontaneous.

Rev. Stephanie Thompson was truly a blessing to work with. My husband and I could not of found a better person to marry us. Our ceremony was personalized to exactly how we wanted it to be. We had say in every detail and reading through our ceremony. Beside performing the actual ceremony she was on top of the timing, when and where people and walking, making sure everyone was where they needed to be and when. I highly recommend working with Rev. Stephanie :)

Stephanie was amazing!!! She worked with our limited time schedule (we live in Houston, TX and our ceremony was in Stroudsburg, PA). She had a lot of choices when it came to putting our ceremony together. We chose to have a traditional ceremony with no mention of religion. She nailed our ceremony and all of our guests commented on how she helped make the ceremony feel intimate. I would absolutely recommend her to anyone looking for a more personalized ceremony!!!

We couldn't have picked a better person to officiate our wedding! Our guests are still raving about how beautiful our ceremony was! Stephanie provided us with so much useful information to help us plan our perfect ceremony. She is very responsive with emails and phone and she is such a sweet, lovely person. I wasn't nervous at all during the ceremony knowing she was up there guiding us through each step of the way. Truly was the best day of our lives!

Thank you Tammy! I loved the ways in which Brian and you choose to personalize your wedding ceremony. It was especially touching to have your Aunt and Uncle read during the ceremony!
