Kept Us Sane During Some Serious Wedding Crises
I was extremely particular about searching for an officiant for my wedding. I'm Catholic and come from a mixed heritage background and my husband is Muslim. We wanted a balance of spiritualism and tradition that felt right for us. Rev Dawn helped us customize our ceremony, and, more importantly, made it EASY!Sent on 12/04/2018
Plus on the day of our wedding, we had a couple of incidents (last minute changes, the fire department came right before our start time, and we had an interruption during the ceremony). Rev Dawn kept us calm and collected throughout. She rolled with the punches in such a professional way. While I was in complete shock half the time, she kept the wedding going and smoothed everything over. I had at least 10 different people (bridal party & guests) tell me how awesome and wonderful she was. Seriously, I've had more positive feedback about her than the venue, attire, food, decor, etc. If you already have a vision of your ceremony or if you have absolutely no idea where to start, I highly recommend Rev Dawn. Either way, she'll guide you towards creating the most beautiful, heartfelt ceremony.

Dawn went above and beyond!
We used Dawn for pre-marital sessions and as our wedding officiant. She did a wonderful job incorporating both of our personalities in the ceremony and made sure it was something we were both happy with. Friends and family commented on our ceremony and how intimate and personal it felt. Thank you Dawn!!Sent on 06/12/2019

A beautiful ceremony!
My wife found Rev. Dawn to be our wedding officiant and we couldn't have had a better experience. From the very start, she was incredibly helpful and responsive. We were super specific about what we wanted incorporated into our ceremony, and Rev. Dawn helped us craft the perfect ceremony. She also does a great job of helping you keep your vows personal, and truly expressing what you love about your partner.Sent on 03/30/2019
Our wedding day was incredibly stressful as my wife and I were trying to juggle two cultures mixing. I can't express how much Rev. Dawn helped calm our nerves. Everything from unexpected interruptions to fire alarms, she handled with such calm and grace. Honestly, we had been looking for an interfaith/progressive officiant for a good year and Rev. Dawn was a blessing. Not only does she have an incredible knowledge of working with many different religious backgrounds, but she also made everyone at our wedding feel united. I know this sounds cheesy but I felt this moment of spiritual unity during our ceremony!
Would highly recommend, and thank you Reverend Dawn!
Rev. Dawn is one of the best wedding officiants in the business. As a wedding planner, I have worked with many officiants. Rev. Dawn never fails to amaze me with her heartfelt personalized ceremonies, her prompt and professional communication, and her friendly, calm and kind personality. She puts couples at ease and skillfully guides them through the process of co-creating a ceremony that is special and meaningful. Her interfaith training and background is a unique benefit for couples of mixed and/or non-religious backgrounds. Plus, she is a joy to work with! Rev. Dawn is always first on my list when I need to recommend an officiant. I wish I had known her when I got married - I would definitely have hired her!
Wonderful! Patient and kind! Open minded and attentive to the details of your ceremony. Soft spoken and intentional. Thank you Rev. Dawn! You put my clients at ease! Hope to have you on board in 2017! HIGHLY recommended!
Rev. Dawn is one of my all-time favorite officiants. She's so kind & open-hearted, and she really treats her couples well. She's extremely well-spoken and crafts ceremonies to suit the couples perfectly, which is so huge.
