Based in the Lehigh Valley of Pennsylvania, Donna Forsythe and the Lehigh Valley Celebrants are a team of certified wedding officiants. Their mission is to work closely with clients to create a one-of-a-kind ceremony that honors all aspects of a couple's relationship.

This principle of equality and exceptional ceremonies for all have remained at the core of all they do. Donna and her team are endorsed Humanist Celebrants and are all Masters Certified through Celebrant Academy.

    Excellent!

    My husband and I were so happy that we chose Lehigh Valley Celebrants for our wedding! Our officiant, Laura Eppler, did an absolutely amazing job with writing our ceremony! It was so beautiful and she got to know us as a couple by meeting with us over Zoom and having us fill out a questionnaire. She was able to beautifully incorporate how we felt about each other and details about us into our ceremony. She was very helpful throughout the entire planning process and responsive to all of our questions. We got so many compliments from our guests about how beautiful our ceremony was and they loved how personalized it was. It perfectly reflected us as a couple and we could not be any happier with it. We would highly recommend Laura to anyone looking for an officiant for their wedding!

    Most incredible ceremony

    I can not say enough wonderful things about Donna - from the beginning of the process and how comfortable she made us feel to the last minute COVID changes to a small microwedding and then to the day of the ceremony itself and her beautiful ceremony. She truly made this entire experience wonderful and our guests (in-person and via Zoom!) could not stop talking about how amazing the ceremony was. It was personal, intimate and Donna took the time to listen to what we wanted and get to us know us as a couple which made her ceremony so special for everyone to witness. The ceremony was truly our favorite part of our day and we cant wait to have her again at our larger celebration next year. Again, I can not stress enough how wonderful Donna was during the entire process and how amazing she was for our ceremony. Even during these crazy times, she made our living room ceremony the most special experience of our lives! Cant wait to have her with us again next year!

I worked with Donna on a January 1st elopement this year and she was simply fantastic. Her ability to capture the core of a couple's love is just beautiful! I look forward to her officiating my own wedding this October!
