Services Offered
Ms Heckman wants to be your voice for your love, life and story. She understands that your wedding is about you, but may also be about family, and will assist you with vows, and every detail of the ceremony. She specializes in ceremonies for diverse couples and families, and does not take a strict or dogmatic approach.

Whether you're having an intimate gathering, or a lavish affair, your ceremony can, and should reflect who you are accurately and honestly.

If you're eloping, or envisioning an intimate wedding of less than 35 guests, she offers her beautiful, outdoor ceremony site, Harmony Gardens. It is a lush garden and very private setting, the perfect alternative to more traditional and expensive options and great for couples who love the outdoors.

  • We decided to elope 2 weeks ahead of time. We then realized with COVID the government building were shut down and there was a delay to get our marriage license. We kept Lois updated with these events, then 4 days before our wedding we asked her to officiate. She managed to put together a beautiful ceremony. Never meeting us (only having us fill out a quick questionnaire) and only talking on the phone for 10 minutes, she somehow made a ceremony that was perfect for us. She used quotes that would be impactful for us, followed traditions and rituals that we wanted, and made the whole day perfect. Harmony Gardens was a beautiful spot with a little gazebo for our little dance party afterwards and lots of amazing photo spots.
