Same-Sex Marriage

 Jennifer & MeganNew Traditions is your same-sex marriage officiant in Pennsylvania! Ever since May 20, 2014, when a U.S. federal district court judge ruled that the 1996 ban on recognizing same-sex marriage was unconstitutional, I have been free to join same-sex couples in marriage in Pennsylvania. As a long time supporter of LGBT rights and same-sex marriage, I could not have been happier about this decision. Now the entire nation enjoys the same freedom to marry. I have officiated many same-sex marriages and create unique personalized ceremonies for my LGBT clients.






I will be happy to be part of your special day and to write a ceremony that best fits you and your partner. Humanist Officiants are a perfect fit for same-sex weddings as a secular ceremony is completely neutral in regard to beliefs and celebrates the couple for who they are.

Officiating my first same-sex wedding.

Lynn and Joy. The first same-sex marriage I acted as officiant for. This was shortly after the court ruled that same-sex marriage was legal in PA. It was a wonderful experience and since then I have officiated over the marriages of many same-sex couples.
