 I began my career as a wedding officiant after the passing of Marriage Equality in Pennsylvania.  While I have 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.  It is now my pleasure to officiate both weddings and vow renewals with couples in the Lehigh Valley area and surrounding counties.

I have spent most of my working career as a teacher, librarian and technology educator. My years as a teacher and particularly a librarian/storyteller have given me a great foundation for being an officiant.  My charge is to tell YOUR story!  Your ceremony is a unique tale of your love and commitment to each other.  Whether your story is solemn, inspirational, or humorous...whether you want your ceremony to be serious, lighthearted or full of laughter,  we will work together to make your wedding a reflection of you and your relationship.  

So why have I decided to become an officiant? This May 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 a wonderful sight to see two people who had loved each other for so long, be able to officially become a married couple.  This experience was one of the most significant of my life, and I realized that it would bring me great satisfaction to continue to provide this service to others.

If you are looking for an officiant, please know that I will do all that I can to make your wedding exactly what you are hoping for.  Whether you want a large ceremony, a private celebration,  traditional or non-traditional - I will be with you every step of the way to make your experience tailored to your needs, unique, and special. My job is to provide you with information, and assist you with your vision.  Your wedding should be filled with memories, not stress.  You have my commitment that I will be there to assist you through the process with all aspects both great and small.

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!!
