5 star(s) from 7 Reviews

I began my career as a Celebrant in 2014 after the passing of Marriage Equality in Pennsylvania.  While I had been an officiant for some time, it wasn't until marriage was made legal for all Pennsylvania residents that I felt compelled to provide this service to couples. It is now my pleasure to officiate both weddings and vow renewals, as well as baby welcomings and end of life celebrations in the Lehigh Valley area and surrounding counties.

The backstory:  In May of 2014, I was asked to officiate a wedding for two men. Marriage Equality had just passed in PA, and after being together for decades, they were looking forward to finally having the right to be legally married. It was a joy and an honor to unite them as life partners. It was an indescribable experience to see two people who had loved each other for so long, be able to officially become a married couple. This experience was life changing for me and led me on the path to becoming a Celebrant. I went through the Humanist Society to be officially endorsed.   

It has been clear that an increasing number of couples want a ceremony which focuses on them. The couples who seek my services believe the ceremony is the centerpiece of the wedding day and want that experience to reflect and celebrate who they are as a couple. This need for an authentic, personalized ceremony has been overwhelming, so I have expanded my celebrant services and have welcomed three wonderful Humanist Celebrants to join me.

Donna was wonderful to work with! My husband and I live in Oklahoma, and had our wedding in Pennsylvania. She was so responsive, and not even one time did we feel lost in the ceremony planning with all of the help she provided. The ceremony was absolutely perfect: short, sweet, but with a personal touch that had our family friends laughing and smiling. We couldn't have asked for a better ceremony!!
