“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

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.

When we first decided to have more than a courthouse wedding we began looking for an officiant with whom to plan our wedding ceremony. We were looking for someone who would be open to an unusual mix of traditions (Wiccan and Native American) as well as to a lesbian couple. Not only was Dawn Halstead open and helpful but she was welcoming and supportive. We could not have asked for anything more than what her service provided. We were able to plan the ceremony in the way that we wanted to do so as well as make use of her valuable experience in those areas in which we lacked knowledge or wanted her insight. We were able to have the ceremony in her backyard. The yard was beautiful and intimate. We would recommend Dawn's service to anyone looking for an officiant who is open and sensitive to the needs of non-traditional and traditional couples.

My wife and I used Dawn for her officiating services for our small wedding. She was easy to work with and to talk to, and although we used one of her short pre-written ceremonies that she put together, it was quite possibly the most beautiful words that I have ever heard at a wedding (perhaps I'm biased because it was ours, but it was definitely one to remember). Cheryl and I plan to print out her words and frame it to keep in our home together because it was just that beautiful. Dawn even gave us a list of good places to eat and hotels to stay at for our time there (all of our families came from far distances all over the US), and she was spot on. The food was awesome and the hotels accommodations were spectacular. We can't thank you enough, Dawn for everything you did for us. Keep up the good work.

We were travelling from out of state and she very unselfishly and professionally arranged her schedule to fit ours.She is great with communication and correspondence, very prompt and thorough. She is able to put people at ease, and can reflect and respect your feelings, wishes, requests and traditions.

My husband and I absolutely loved working with Dawn Halstead! We knew that our wedding was going to be perfect from our first meeting with her. At our first meeting Dawn really got to know us as a couple and gave us a workbook so we were able to customize our wedding to be like we have always dreamed of.

At our second meeting we reviewed the ceremony we had created with the workbook. We included readings we had found and she had suggested along with personal stories about how we met. This meeting was great because we could envision our wedding and Dawn was able to make suggestions for the ceremony.

Between our last meeting and the wedding Dawn checked in with us and confirmed all details for the rehearsal and the wedding day. This was comforting because I knew that she was comfortable with officiating the ceremony and was well prepared.

At the rehearsal she got everyone to cooperate and in line so that everyone was comfortable for the ceremony the next day. At the ceremony, Dawn was well-spoken and guided the readers and my husband and I so everything went smoothly. The ceremony couldn't have gone any smoother! All of our guest kept saying how impressed they were with the ceremony and how they enjoyed the personal touches that were included.

My husband and I absolutely loved working with Dawn Halstead! We knew that our wedding was going to be perfect from our first meeting with her. At our first meeting Dawn really got to know us as a couple and gave us a workbook so we were able to customize our wedding to be like we have always dreamed of.

At our second meeting we reviewed the ceremony we had created with the workbook. We included readings we had found and she had suggested along with personal stories about how we met. This meeting was great because we could envision our wedding and Dawn was able to make suggestions for the ceremony.

Between our last meeting and the wedding Dawn checked in with us and confirmed all details for the rehearsal and the wedding day. This was comforting because I knew that she was comfortable with officiating the ceremony and was well prepared.

At the rehearsal she got everyone to cooperate and in line so that everyone was comfortable for the ceremony the next day. At the ceremony, Dawn was well-spoken and guided the readers and my husband and I so everything went smoothly. The ceremony couldn't have gone any smoother! All of our guest kept saying how impressed they were with the ceremony and how they enjoyed the personal touches that were included.

I would definitely recommend using Dawn to officiate your wedding because she is reliable, knowledgeable about ceremonies and willing to help make your day special in every way. Read less

Dawn was phenomenal ! She was flexible and had good ideas. You can tell she is a kind and caring soul. I will definitely use her the next time I get married... ok, kidding, but I would recommend her to family/friends.
She would be perfect for either traditional weddings, and in my case, was very accepting of a same sex marriage.

We found Pastor Dawn absolutely wonderful. She was extremely accommodating and very welcoming. My partner and I drove in from Chicago to be wed by Dawn. Our first contact over the email was an indication that she was the right person to officiate our wedding. She's genuinely caring and supportive. She spent considerable amount of time with us before the ceremony and made us feel comfortable and relaxed. She was very helpful about places to dine in Des Moines; arranged for a photographer & helped arranged our bouquet of flowers. She is PERFECT! Definetly HIGHLY recommended and a HIGH Five to her!

Dawn helped us create a wonderfully fun, beautiful wedding ceremony. From the very beginning she was open to our suggestions, and made sure that it would be a ceremony unique to us, not a cookie-cutter version. The book she gave us to get started was a huge help- we were able to find the type of ceremony we wanted, as well as pick from so many beautiful readings, vows, etc...

At the rehearsal the night before, she was able to get everyone's attention and get down to business, all the while having a good time doing it. On our big day she was all smiles, truly showing that she really enjoys what she does. My wife and I made a couple silly mistakes during our ceremony due to the nerves, and Dawn rolled with every one of them and got some laughs out of our guests at the same time.

I truly recommend her for anyone that is "shopping around" for an officiant for their wedding. She helps make the big day very special and unique, has a lot of great ideas, and is overall a very fun, kind person to be around.

When my husband and I decided to renew our vows after ten years we procrastinated on finding an officiate. The ceremony itself we expected just to have someone say a speech and be done with it. After meeting Dawn we realized how special and important this part of the wedding should and can be. She sat down with us a couple times and took her time to get to know us and what we wanted. Our wedding renewal ceremony turned out to be the most memorable part of the night. Dawn touched us and our family with her words and she helped us tremendously to make the night we had reflect our relationship and our love for one another. I cannot imagine someone else make the wedding more suited for us.

Dawn was absolutely incredible to work with. First of all when you meet her you feel very comfortable with her, she is easy to talk to and get to know. We loved her energy right away.

We wanted our ceremony to be very unique and were quite nervous about finding an officiant who would be ok with that. Dawn was more than ok with us being as creative and unique as we wanted to be, she encouraged it! Along the way she provided alot of suggestions of things we hadn't thought of which was really nice. Its impossible to get all the details straight on your own so having Dawn's expert advice meant alot.

During the wedding rehearsal Dawn was on the ball and kept everything running smoothly. So many times at wedding rehearsals it is unorganized and no one knows what is going on. That wasn't the case for us we felt very prepared after that rehearsal.

Throughout the entire process Dawn was super easy to get a hold of and very quick to respond. We were very impressed and will refer her to everyone. Thank you so much Dawn for being a part of our day.

Dawn was incredibly professional, flexible, and friendly from the moment I first contacted her. She informed us that the time that we originally wanted was not available due to another wedding, but was wonderful and agreed to do our service earlier in the day. She was organized, which helped me as a bride as I felt that I didn't need to worry about the service since she had everything under control. She was also very flexible in timing, days we could meet, and the ceremony itself (in regards to readings, the traditions we wanted to incorporate, and the recessional). She had many great suggestions about ways to incorporate bits of our lives, our relationship story, and our hobbies into the ceremony. She was also very affordable compared to many of the officiants in the area. Dawn was integral in the success of our wedding, and we were so happy we could work with her and that she could help us start our marriage off right.

And if the book doesn't have exactly what you're looking for, she has tons of other helpful examples and suggestions.

We cannot thank her enough for all the help she gave us in making our ceremony so lovely and personal, and I am SO glad she encouraged us to write our own vows!

Krystal and I married on June 2nd 2012. Being from Texas we had to do all of our planning through the internet and phone. Dawn, was great! Not only did she take the fear out of an out of state wedding but made us feel comfortable and really got to know us as a couple and what we were wanting in our wedding months before we got there. She made our wedding perfect! All our parents could talk about once we left was how sweet and great Dawn was to open her home up to us as she did. I would just like to thank her and am kind of sad our time with Dawn is over :)

Dawn was our officiant for our same sex wedding. It could not have gone more smoothly. From start to finish. The homework she assigns is a vital part of giving you a ceremony that is unique to you and your partner. She prepares your ceremony from the ideas and letters you provide her. Then you have a final copy in hand to practice weeks before the wedding. And you have your choice of her feeding you the lines or memorizing them. With all the pressure of the day we had her feed us our lines. It went as smooth as it could have on that day! Our ceremony was precious, and unique to us. If we had to do it all over again, Dawn would still be our choice for our special day.

Dawn was absolutely amazing. She helped us in every way possible, from helping us focus on exactly what we wanted our ceremony to be to giving us a wonderful reference for a DJ services. Dawn was open and accepting and we felt like she genuinely cared about us and our family. By the end of the wedding planning process we truly felt like Dawn was one of the family. She gave us the unique, personal ceremony we always wanted and we are still getting compliments from people remarking about how they feel that it was the most heartfelt and personal ceremony they had ever been too. Dawn is remarkable!!

I hope this is also helpful to future husbands. We are a gay male couple that were married by Dawn on August 14. Dawn was very easy to talk to, and to work with. We knew that we didn't want a "traditional" wedding for our non-traditional relationship/wedding. Dawn gave us a lot of good ideas, and resources to create the ceremony that was right for us. It was a lot of fun putting it together, and Dawn gave us suggestions and ideas throughout. It was a short ceremony (under 30 minutes), but turned out to be fun and beautiful -- just what we were hoping for.

Dawn is a wonderful person to work with and we are so pleased with our decision to use her for our July 2011 wedding. She had a large hand in making our ceremony all that we had hoped it would be. She is flexible, accommodating, and offers just the right amount of guidance. She provided a large amount of material for us to use while planning our ceremony, but was also very open to ideas that we generated.

Dawn has excellent communication skills and is very prompt with e-mail correspondence. If we could do it all over again, we would definetily select Dawn as our officiant.

Dawn Halstead performed an awesome wedding ceremony for us, and we could not have been any more pleased with how things turned out. We met with her twice before our wedding day, and she was very professional and very willing to work with us to make the day one that we will always remember. As a couple, we had put a great deal of thought into the kind of ceremony we wanted, and Dawn was flexible and very accommodating with the way we wanted things to flow. She made several suggestions along the way and helped us put every detail in place. I would highly recommend her as an officiant if you are looking for someone who will help make your wedding day memorable for you and your wedding guests.

Dawn was such a gift to us during the wedding planning process. My husband and I were looking for an officiant who would help us create a beautiful, unique, and special ceremony for ourselves and our guests that would reflect who we are and Dawn did just that. She really took the time to come to understand Alex and I both as individuals and as a couple. In helping us create a beautiful ceremony, Dawn was always there with helpful suggestions and input as well as creative ideas that would help us bridge together the whole ceremony.

I cannot tell you how fantastic Dawn is to work with. Our ceremony was absolutely perfect and we both feel so fortunate that Dawn was able to play such a fundamental part in the biggest day of our lives so far. The following weeks after our wedding we had multiple guests comment on what a perfect ceremony we had and were so thankful that we shared many beautiful moments with our families and dear friends close.

If I could do it all over again I would not change a single thing about our ceremony. It was absolutely perfect for us and we have Dawn to thank for so much!

Dawn was very open to how we wanted our somewhat untraditional ceremony performed. We wrote most of our ceremony, borrowing bits and pieces from other wedding ceremonies and having my cousin read a couple of poems during the ceremony. Dawn made some helpful suggestions also, which helped us to tie everything together. If we decide to renew our vows, we will definitely ask her to perform them!!

Dawn was so great... she was quick to respond to our emails or phone calls. she was open to what we wanted in a service and helped us make it our own. She is such a sweet lady and it was a pleasure working with her. To me, it felt like she was a friend doing us a favor then an officiant doing a job. We were so lucky to have found such a great lady to help us start our life together as husband and wife. My reasoning for 4.5 on value was she was a little higher priced then we were wanting to spend since our service was so short- but over all Dawn was GREAT!!! and we were extremely happy with how everything turned out!!!!

It allowed us to pick and choose from various ceremony types to make it our own. We would highly recommend Dawn. She was worth every penny and helped everything fall into place perfectly.

Rev. Dawn Halstead was amazing! She helped us to create the most beautiful, personal ,and special wedding! The ceremony was one of a kind and uniquely ours. She really took the time to understand us as a couple and what we wanted our wedding to be. I was nervous in looking for an officiant because my partner and I are of different faiths. I didnt think we could find someone who could make the ceremony spirtual but not religious and satisfy both our spirtual needs. But Dawn did. We could not have asked for a better experience and we are greatful that we had such an open minded and thoughtful officiant to help us through the stresses of wedding planning. Thank you so much Rev. Dawn!!

Rev. Halstead ministers to you, at the level of your spiritual comfort, with grace and professionalism. The entire process was easy, especially in a time that was understandably unsettling, and Rev Halstead made all effort to remove any uncertainty in service matters.
There were certain requests pertaining to regalia that we're not met, but we genuinely believe that to be a minimal oversight in the long run, and all in all we were very happy with the outcome.

I am so sorry to who wrote this review that you didn't feel you received the very best from me. If you want to talk about it with me, I would be very willing to do that. I'm not sure what you mean by regalia. I would like a chance to apologize in person and try to understand what needs were not met. As a professional, I hope that I will learn from you what it is I can do better in the future. Please feel free to email or call me.
