I perform personalized wedding ceremonies focused on the hopes, the dreams and the needs of a couple. I perform wedding ceremonies of all kinds: Vow Renewals, Elopements, Intimate Ceremonies and Same Sex Ceremonies. I also perform Baptisms, Baby Blessings and Memorial Services. I help couples and families create meaningful ceremonies and build lasting memories.
It is truly an honor to witness couples exchange their wedding vows. I literally have the best view of a couple as they pledge themselves to one another! I see the tears of joy and I can feel the love between a couple. It is an amazing experience and something that I do not take for granted. It is very humbling to witness such an intimate moment, even when the couple and I are before standing before one hundred people.

I offer the same care and respect to all couples. I come to this work with a warm heart, a sense of humor, a love of learning and a desire to support others. I do what I do because all love deserved to be celebrated and recognized. -Stephanie
I 'co-create' ceremonies with the couples and families that I work with. Personalized ceremonies are important! I believe that a wedding ceremony should reflect the love, hopes and intentions of the couple being married. I utilize language, imagery and rituals that are meaningful for the family or couple.
Heart Ceremonies is an expression of my approach to creating and performing personalized ceremonies. Some ceremonies may include religious language because this is meaningful for the couple. Other ceremonies may include no religious or spiritual language and this is fine, too. I understand that a wedding ceremony is about the couple being married, not the person performing the ceremony. I believe that ceremonies should reflect what is meaningful for the couple or family being recognized.
I am THE REAL DEAL- a person who is legally recognized in Pennsylvania to perform weddings. I am a professional and I am proud of the work that I do. I was not ordained online nor was I ordained just to perform weddings. I have over twenty years of experience in the design, coordination and presentation of rituals, ceremonies and public moments for reflection. I am comfortable speaking in front of a crowd. I value the team of professionals involved in a successful wedding.
I offer the same care and respect to all couples. I come to this work with a warm heart, a sense of humor, a love of learning and a desire to support others. I do what I do because all love deserved to be celebrated and recognized. Heart Ceremonies is more than just a cute phrase; it expresses what I genuinely believe and have experienced in the work that I am honored to do. -Stephanie
