If you want your wedding ceremony to be unique and meaningful, you've come to the right place!

Your ceremony can be (and should be) beautiful, and an honest reflection of your love, your life and your values. Secular, spiritual, interfaith, multicultural - I am open to all paths and specialize in ceremonies for diverse couples and families.

I have many years of experience and can create the perfect ceremony for you. I am based in the Pocono Mountains of Pennsylvania.

Additionally, I also offer the opportunity for couples eloping, or those with a smaller number of guests, to be married at my beautiful outdoor ceremony site, Harmony Gardens. Learn more about Harmony Gardens on my website.

Lois was great. I cannot say enough good things about her. She made our ceremony so incredibly special. She took the time to meet with us and to continue to stay in touch with us from our first meeting until the day of our wedding. We filled out a few things for her and then she transformed what we said into the most beautiful wedding ceremony. We told her that we wanted people to walk away from the ceremony and say "wow" and they absolutely did. We have gotten compliment after compliment about how great and personal our ceremony was. It was exactly what we wanted when we first started thinking about our wedding. I would encourage any couple looking for somebody to marry them to start with Lois. I cannot imagine that there is somebody out there that could do better. She was just great.

We couldn't have found a better celebrant than Lois! She was extremely kind, clear, and helpful throughout the planning process and was willing to work with us to make the ceremony perfect. Living across the country, we didn't even get to meet her face-to-face until the day of the wedding. However, that was never a problem at all - she was so responsive and knowledgable via phone and email that it wasn't even necessary to meet. One of the best services she offers is that she will write your ceremony speech early on and give you time to read and critique it with her until it's just the way you want it - no surprises and no stress! All I can say is that our ceremony ended up wonderful, a lot thanks to Lois. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a fun, loving, and creative celebrant to make their day perfect!

If you’re looking for a custom ceremony, then you need to contact Lois Heckman. There are so many wonderful aspects to working with Lois and having her officiate your wedding; it’s hard to decide where to begin. We knew we wanted a ceremony that was unique and shared more about our relationship, finding Lois was the perfect answer. From the 1st phone conversation, we knew Lois was the Celebrant to give us the ceremony of our dreams. She opened her home to us for our 1st meeting, to allow her to get to know us, and we to get to know her. One thing I really appreciated was something Lois said during that meeting; she doesn’t book at the first meeting, she wants the couple to sleep on it and be sure it was the right fit. It was definitely the right fit and we eagerly booked her the next day. If you’re considering a smaller celebration, located on her beautiful property is a private ceremony site, Harmony Gardens, we did not utilize this space but it is enchanting! From there, Lois requests the completion of bride & groom questionnaires to help develop a personalized ceremony; this was a little daunting to complete at first but we actually had a wonderful time reminiscing and sharing our responses after Lois provided her first draft. We were able to make as many edits as necessary (there weren’t many, Lois nailed it in the first draft). Her kit provided many suggestions on vows, unity rituals, marriage regulations, etc. Lois supported us in determining a unity ritual that perfectly matched our personalities and devoted relationship, she also offered encouraging words when moments of stress arose. Lois arrived to our venue early to ensure everything was going smoothly and to finalize our marriage certificate, her wealth of knowledge and personality is very comforting. Our guests are still raving about how wonderful the ceremony was, many have said, it’s the best ceremony they have ever witnessed. We have Lois (telling our story) to thank for that.

Lois did an amazing job getting to know my husband and I through the interview process. She was able to personalize our interfaith ceremony to really bring out our relationship. Even the day of when we were worried about the rain, she quickly cut out a few parts of the ceremony just in case it rained! She made the process really easy and we were able to approve the entire ceremony well before our wedding day!

Matt and I were married 6/4/2016! We had such a wonderful experience with Lois. She is beyond professional, and she had so many wonderful suggestions to really customize our ceremony. I am one who is not too religious, and I did not want many religious references in my ceremony. Lois was able to really work around this and she made it more spiritual, which was fantastic! The ceremony was so personal and close to the both of us, we were so pleased with how it came out. We had several guests let us know that they appreciated the thoughtfulness and how personal it was. It was truly a joy and honor to have Lois officiate our service! She is a gem!!!

Lois is the BEST! My husband and I were married by Lois at her lovely Harmony Gardens area by her home...beautiful landscaping, including flowers, natural water fountain, nearby pond, large gazebo with a natural stone floor, an altar rock. Amazing experience! Lois customizes each of her ceremonies to fit every couple individually. She really appreciates the importance of each ceremony she officiates. She is very understanding, friendly, helpful, and creative - and she responds QUICKLY to any communication you send her way, whether by e-mail, phone, or regular mail. She even helped my husband and I (as well as all of our guests) feel more at ease and less nervous about our special day - we cannot recommend her highly enough! P.S. We felt the services Lois provides are a wonderful value for what you receive.
