Same-Sex Marriage


Same-Sex Marriage has come to PA!

 New Traditions is your same-sex marriage officiant in Pennsylvania! Congratulations to the LGBT Community in PA!  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. As a long time supporter of LGBT rights and same-sex marriage I could not be happier about this decision. I have officiated many same-sex marriages and created unique personalized ceremonies for my LGBT clients.








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



So congratulations Pennsylvania! I want to be your same-sex marriage officiant in Pennsylvania. With the legalization of same-sex marriage in PA I expect my calendar to fill up quickly as Humanist Officiants are a perfect fit for same-sex weddings . Get in contact with New Traditions to secure your date now!

 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 them I have officiated over the marriages of many same sex couples.
