Dana Lawson, Amazing Celebrant on 5/28/22!

Dana Lawson helped to make our wedding day the most touching and beautiful day we could have ever dreamed. She worked closely with us, making sure that everything we were hoping for would happen with our wedding and thanks to Dana it did, and then some. She is kind and open to any ideas. She is responsive and does her research. One of the most moving parts of our ceremony came from the beautiful verses about nature and trees that Dana spoke of, which were a large part of the theme of our wedding. Beyond giving us the most magical of ceremonies, she checked back in with us sometime after our wedding, to see how we were and gave a personal touch that endeared her to us even more. She is the real deal and the care, time and energy she gave to our ceremony brought us the most special of all days. I highly recommend Dana Lawson to all who wish for their wedding day to be the most memorable of all days. Thank you so very much Dana!!!

Highly Recommend!

I highly recommend Dana as an officiant for your wedding! She came recommended from the wedding venue and after reading reviews online and speaking with her, I knew I wanted to have her officiate my wedding. It was important to us to have an officiant who could combine elements of a nontraditional wedding and traditional wedding, along with religious and spiritual elements, and Dana did just that. She listened to us and provided support and guidance along the way. She tailored the wedding to capture both our personalities and the mood that we were going for on the day of. I felt good knowing that I didn't have to worry about the flow of the wedding, as she had great recommendations on how things should go the day of. Working with Dana was such a breeze and made for a great wedding day! I couldn't have asked for a better officiant! Thank you Dana!

Dana did a fabulous job crafting our perfect wedding ceremony! Our whole ceremony was extremely personal, touching, and unique to us! I did not want to include some of the traditional elements of a wedding ceremony and Dana did a great job of making sure the ceremony was still an appropriate length and not too short - it was actually perfect! My favorite part of our ceremony was our tree planting union which we decided to add on becasue we omitted readings and writing our own vows. Dana did such a beautiful job creating a very unique and meaningful ceremony that told our story. I recieved many, many compliments about how professional and beautiful our ceremony was. I would highly recommend Dana for any life celebration! Thank you Dana!
