“Rev. Dawn was absolutely awesome! She advised and assisted in every way possible. She made our wedding ceremony and celebration a wonderful and truly memorable occasion. She went above and beyond what we could have ever hoped. Rev Dawn is an amazing and wonderful person. If you want an amazingly AWESOME ceremony Rev Dawn should be your choice!”

This is just one of the many, many reviews Dawn has received since she began officiating wedding ceremonies, after graduating from seminary.

Dawn officiates at all styles of weddings: formal, informal, elopement, religious, inter-faith, spiritual, non religious—including same sex marriages. Or, should we just say, that Dawn officiates for all people eligible to marry in the state of Iowa!

She has adapted/adopted her denomination’s (United Church of Christ) motto, “No matter where you are or who you are on life’s journey…” she welcomes you.

Dawn believes that, “… all weddings should be a reflection of the couple’s personality and character. It is my desire to make sure this happens for them. Their ceremony should be as individual and unique as they are.” She will guide you through the entire process, presenting all the materials* she has to help personalize your ceremony. She will share her suggestions, experience and expertise with you, always reminding you that this is your wedding and all decisions made are yours. No two ceremonies are alike, whether it is an elopement or a full ceremony.

*All couples who book with her will receive the workbook, A Wedding Ceremony to Remember--Perfect Words for the Perfect Wedding, as well as other resources she has collected to help your dreams of a perfect ceremony come true.

**Please ask about the military discount she offers to thank the men and women who are currently serving in the military. Read less

Rev. Dawn was wonderful to work with! We loved that we were able to really personalize our ceremony and make it our own. After the wedding we had MANY guests give us compliments on our "perfect" ceremony. We also had Rev. Dawn perform our son's baptism on our rehearsal night. It turned out amazing and it was a very special event!

Reverend Dawn was a wonderful officiant. She was thoroughly professional, but kept the mood light, which fit perfectly with our celebration. Reverend Dawn helped us through the entire process, from choosing vows and readings appropriate to us, to planning the sequence of events during the ceremony. I would strongly recommend her to any couple.

I found Dawn online and after getting an email back within 30 minutes of inquiring her services, I knew that she was the perfect fit to officiate our wedding! We met with Dawn for premarital sessions which was very beneficial to us. She was flexible with her appointments to meet with us and genuinely cared about us as a couple. The ceremony was beautiful and she made the process easy and relaxed. We would definitely recommend Dawn to anyone looking for an officiant in the Central Iowa area.

Dawn helped us write a beautiful ceremony that exactly fit our personalities and suited our needs. She even went above and beyond for us when she learned that our photographer of choice had a previous committment that prevented her from photographing our wedding -- unknown to us, she telephoned Maryellen and encouaged her to amend her plans so that she would be available to us. Dawn is a delight to work with and we highly recommend her.

Dawn was just the officiant we were looking for! We had a laid back, private ceremony that was personal to us. Dawn was very flexible, as we had to push the ceremony up two and a half hours due to rain! I highly recommend Dawn to anyone who is looking for a great, easy to work with, and kind officiant.
