Officiant For Joyous Wedding Celebrations In Southeast Louisiana

Hi. My name is Donna Fontenot Cavalier and I am an ordained minister who believes in marriage equality and who specializes in performing secular, non-denominational wedding ceremonies. All loving couples deserve a special custom marriage ceremony, designed to fit their own beliefs, personalities and lifestyles, and Happy Life Weddings is honored to officiate at such a wonderful life celebration. I work with all loving couples who want an officiant who will help them prepare a beautiful, custom secular wedding ceremony that works best for them. I will make sure that your personalities and stories are well represented. You can stick with tradition, combine traditional with modern, or go completely outside the box when it comes to designing the ceremony. I'll make sure it keeps the legal components required as we customize the celebration.

Donna was a fantastic officiant. We found her because were specifically searching for a secular officiant who also performs same-sex marriages (we are an opposite-sex couple, but it was important that every vendor we worked with shared our values). She made the entire process easy and stress-free, even though we were out-of-state and planning the majority of our wedding from afar. Donna provided suggestions for our ceremony script but was flexible and accommodating to changes we requested. Communication was excellent - we were never left hanging, waiting for a response - and pricing was more than reasonable. We would highly recommend Donna to anyone looking for an officiant in the New Orleans area!

Donna seriously made our wedding perfect! From writing the perfect ceremony on the first try to printing out beautiful booklets with our vows so we didn't have to worry about it, she made planning and executing our ceremony seamless. It was a great experience for both of us. I cannot praise her enough. Our ceremony was beautiful, and Donna made us both comfortable through the whole process. If you're looking for an officiant, look no further. Donna is your gal!

Donna was amazing! She was professional, kind, down to earth, knowledgable and flexible from the moment we met her! She guided and helped us from the first day through the planning stages and the ceremony. She put a beautiful ceremony together for us and really took time to talk with us and made the ceremony very personal and intimate. She was very flexible. We initially did not plan on having a rehearsal but at the last minute we decided to have one and she was exremely accommodating and helped us with a that. We highly recommend her and just can't say enough! Even our guests were impressed and many of them commented on how good she was. If you are looking for someone who is professional, knowledgeable and genuine to officiate your wedding she is the one!
