LOVE IS OUR PASSION
Great Celebrations is a trusted source for personalized ceremonies in Central Pennsylvania. We date back to 2000, when mother, Jacqueline Smith, and daughter Mylah Martin started a wedding planning business. That was fun. However, quite incidentally they came to recognize an important wedding omission. The CEREMONY (the real reason family and friends gather to honor a couple). They found couples were missing the finer points of their ceremony: what was to be said, what was to be done, when, and by whom. Their focus from that point shifted with Jacqueline becoming an ordained Minister and certified Life-Cycle and Wedding Celebrant.
Today we are ceremony specialists who excel at weaving all the visual elements of the planned occasion into a cohesive program, that through spoken words and actions portrays the unique journeys, stories, and values of our clients.
Be it a marriage, homeownership, parenthood, divorce, or end-of-life celebration we are here to assist you. We delight in the opportunity to celebrate black joy, multicultural unions, blended families, and marriage equality.
At the heart of our work is the desire to make people happy. That can only happen with careful attention. That is why we take care to not overload our calendar. We want our clients to always remain our top priority. We are also a family team bound together by love and held together by devotion. Much like a marriage, we know the success that comes with supporting each other in our dreams and aspirations.
