Ceremonies That Reflect Who You Are
Your wedding is an experience created for your family, friends, and mostly for you...the couple.
It should be a reflection of who you are. When you work with a Celebrant, you are choosing
to create a unique ceremony with a professional who is trained in the process of listening,
researching, and writing. You are choosing to work with a professional who is experienced
with crafting and delivering an exceptional ceremony.
All of the Lehigh Valley Celebrants have been endorsed by the Humanist Society
and are trained to create meaningful, personal, secular ceremonies.
Wedding Ceremony Services
Our Ceremonies are as different and individualized as the couples we work with. Our fees generally range from $150 for a Simple Elopement Ceremony to $750 for a fully Personalized Celebration. Our fees reflect the time we invest to write, craft and officiate your ceremony. We work to ensure that our fees are a great value to you, the couple. Email us for a quote, or contact us to schedule a casual visit. We will discuss various options and show you how we can create a unique, memorable wedding that celebrates your love, and reflects who you are as a couple.
Crafting your Ceremony
Writing your ceremony is a labor of love and requires a great deal of thought and consideration to ensure that it is exactly the way you want. When we have our initial consultation, we will outline the specific process for how we will create your ceremony. We will collect background information about you as a couple, and the important details of your relationship. Will you want to have readings? Perhaps you would like to include a special ritual in your ceremony but don't know where to begin. From the information you share, we build the structure of your ceremony so that it is a unique reflection of your love and life together. We have wonderful resources and will share lots of ideas that you may use to decide exactly what you want to include in your wedding ceremony. Once your ceremony is written, you will receive a copy of the draft for approval. The final ceremony script will be an authentic representation of your story as a couple.
Ceremonies in Spanish
Lehigh Valley Celebrants are honored to be able to provide all wedding ceremonies in Spanish. Please let us know if you are interested in having a Bilingual or Spanish wedding ceremony.
My wife Amanda and I felt extremely fortunate that we were able to work with Donna and Cely -- who acted as the celebrant for our wedding -- on relatively short notice. As a secular couple, our ceremonial interests lied in commemorating our history together (individually, collectively, familially) and the kind of ideals we hope to carry forward into marriage. Cely did a wonderful job of handling all of our probably-tedious questions and of providing the material necessary to construct the ceremony into something uniquely "us." When it came time for the actual event, I could comfortably keep my eyes on my bride knowing that every detail of the celebration had already been weighed and overseen by Amanda and myself. Many of our friends and family members, even those of more spiritual persuasions, were quick to express how lovely and personal -- and fittingly funny -- our ceremony was. And most importantly, Cely obviously cares very much. She was calm and poised on a day where I was, well, less than calm and poised, and she handled all the day's events with a special kind of collectedness. Again, we were lucky to have her, and recommend her highly.

Donna was such a joy to work with. Ryan and I couldn't have felt more lucky that we found her. She was quick to get back to us, and was very accommodating with being able to meet with us since we live outside of PA. We met over coffee, and in the hour that we spent together it was as if we were reconnecting with an old friend. It was as if she already knew us, and made us more comfortable about the whole wedding process. She helped guide us through writing and selecting vows, the flow of the ceremony, and really got to know our story. In the months leading up to the wedding she was there to review our selections, and make sure we had everything we needed for our big day. When we sat down to review the final draft of our ceremony, we were both astounded at how beautifully Donna had put our story into words. She is truly passionate about what she does, and it shows in all the care and detail she puts into making your ceremony unique to you as a couple. Thank you so much for helping make our day unforgettable! We will definitely be recommending Donna's services to friends and family!
