What a beautiful human
I will never be able to thank Rev Dawn enough for creating a memory we will cherish forever. She so beautifully blended our two families and cultures together with a bilingual ceremony. She was always there if we had a question or concern - let alone traveled for our wedding. What a lovely human being to work with and I hope in the future our paths cross againSent on 12/01/2019

Best ceremony/la mejor ceremonia
I couldn't be more happy with the services Reverend Dawn provided. My husband and I had a multicultural wedding and it was very important to us that all our guests felt included in every aspect of our wedding. Reverend Dawn made sure our vision came to life and she conducted a very professional, personalized and memorable bilingual ceremony. All our guests complimented us on our ceremony and everyone had only positive things to say about Reverend Dawn. Getting married is one of the most important things in life and she made sure we had the best ceremony ever. She was very attentive, responded very quickly to our questions and made the entire process a calming and stress free experience! Thank you Reverend Dawn for such an unforgettable amazing experience!Sent on 10/04/2019

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
Rev. Dawn's reply:Emma--- a belated note to thank you and Ryan for these words. Such a pleasure to be with you both through sessions and to be a part of your uniquely personal day. Thank you for the privilege.
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.
