Hi, I am Rev. Jacqueline, owner of GREAT Celebrations: Ceremony Specialist (Camp HIll, PA ).
Titles are important. Let’s start there. I am a CELEBRANT. My training in the art of ceremony is vast and I have many years of wedding experience which qualify me as a “ceremony specialist”. I love officiating a wedding; for this reason, it has become my specialty. The way to officiate a wedding varies. One can opt to read from a prepared script that is not truly personalized, and get the job done, or one can go deeper by connecting with the couple as well as the vendors involved in the couples’ ceremony. The latter is the difference I bring as a CELEBRANT.
PRICE - When you think about pricing, consider the difference between a fast food hamburger and a gourmet burger from a fine dining experience. In the end, it’s all about presentation and how the sandwich is put together. Similarly, my price reflects the “how” of preparing your ceremony.
PROCESS - Pure love is what goes into the customization of your wedding ceremony. I do not give you reading and music lists to pick and choose from, instead, I will interview you, write your script from scratch, and then present it to you for your approval. Together we make the changes you desire until the ceremony feels good to you. It is a work of art, a masterpiece of the love story that’s brought you to your wedding day.
OUR VALUES - it does not matter if you are planning a civil or sacred ceremony - or if you are planning to elope, a wedding is a magical, beautiful display of pageantry consisting of three primary elements: the promenade, the nuptial formalities, and the party. Wisdom tells us “marriage is not to be entered into lightly”. I deeply value this sentiment; that is why I believe the most important element of your wedding day is the expression of your love through words, symbols and rituals (the formalities).
ARE WE A GOOD FIT? - CELEBRANT or Officiant - it matters who you select to see you thru your rite of passage into matrimony. I pair best with couples who prefer careful and thoughtful preparation of their expressions of love and commitment to each other. If you think we’d be a good match, I’d love to hear from you.

It could not have gone any better...
We had so many comments from attendees about how beautiful the ceremony was, and I could not agree more. I would not hesitate a second to recommend GREAT Celebrations to anyone.Sent on 11/05/2019
