Rev. Dawn guided us through what became an exceptional ceremony. This past spring we started seeing Dawn for pre-marital counseling and it became clear that she is a gifted, caring professional. Through Dawn's counseling sessions, we enhanced our level of communication and understanding, as well as our commitment to do the necessary work to strengthen our relationship. When it was time to select an officiant for our ceremony, the choice to work with Dawn was easy and crystal clear. She designed a ceremony that was authentic and heartfelt, the perfect platform for this celebration with the family and friends that form our community. So many people have asked us, "How did you find Rev. Dawn, she is wonderful?" THANK YOU Dawn for your thoughtful guidance and support, it has been a genuine pleasure! --John & Ryan

My husband and I used Dawn to officiate our wedding on 6/28/14. I couldn't recommend her enough! Dawn made the planning process for our ceremony so easy and stress-free. Something that is much appreciated during the wedding planning! We continue to receive compliments on how beautiful, sentimental and meaningful the ceremony was from our guests. We were so pleased and found Dawn to be a huge help. She is always easy to reach, could answer all of our questions, and provided insightful and thoughtful advice. If you are looking for someone to officiate your wedding, end your search and go with Dawn! You will not be sorry.

Rev. Dawn struck the perfect note for our wedding and us. Neither my wife nor I actively practice an organized religion. Frankly, I’m not religious. That said, we wanted a ceremony that was spiritual, but unique to us. Rev. Dawn was tremendous in making that happen. She provided an outline and vision for the ceremony, and then worked with us to meld that to what we wanted. She worked with love letters that my wife and I prepared for each other to create incredibly touching and personal readings and vows. In what I think is one of the biggest complements that can be given, we’ve had many, many guests tell us that they thought Rev. Dawn did an amazing job and that the ceremony was beautiful.

I was so happy to find Reverend Dawn for our ceremony. I was very disheartened during my search for an officiant; we really wanted a non-religious ceremony, but even officiants who professed to be secular still seemed to have a religious overtone upon closer examination. Dawn was so open to any kind of ceremony, and has tons of experience with all walks of life and persuasions.

My husband and I had to work with Dawn from afar, as we were planning our Atlanta wedding from Jersey City. She was so awesome about speaking with us over the phone, which was much appreciated. She gave us so many options for every part of the ceremony; from the readings to the announcement of us as a couple, I really feel like we totally designed our ceremony uniquely for us. It was incredibly intimate and powerful. Dawn helped us to be present in the moment, and realize and recognize that we were truly in a very special moment. Also, we were concerned about the lack of religion given the fact that we had quite a few more traditional folk in attendance. Everyone was full of praise for Dawn, and commented on how beautiful the ceremony was. It really is a true testament to how great Dawn is.

I highly recommend Dawn for any kind of ceremony you might envision. She adapts so easily, and is incredibly willing to help you figure out what works best for both you and your family. I am so grateful for her presence at our wedding.

My wife and I were married on Oct 11, 2013 and Reverend Dawn helped to make the day so special! Rev Dawn had wonderful suggestions for us and helped us to tailor the service to our preference. We wanted a good mix of contemporary and traditional ideas for our wedding.

She offered us many different suggestions for readings and introduced us to the wonderful rock ceremony in lieu of the traditional unity candle.

I cannot sing enough praises for Rev. Dawn. Our experience with her was excellent. We were so impressed by our first meeting that we decided to do our pre-marital counseling sessions with her.

Rev. Dawn helped to strengthen our relationship as we navigated all the difficulties of planning a wedding and the stress of going into a marriage. Planning our ceremony with her was very easy.

Regarding the wedding ceremony, she provided a script which we tailored to meet our needs. My husband and I wanted to be very involved in the creation of the ceremony text and she was open and flexible to work with our ideas. She even offered some great suggestions that we adopted to make the ceremony truly ours.

With her help, we included our "love story" as part of the ceremony and we wrote our own vows. Both made the ceremony very personal and deeply emotional.

Our guest laughed and cried all through the ceremony. There wasn't a dull moment! After the ceremony our friends and family told us how this was the best ceremony they had ever attended. We knew it was Rev. Dawn's special touch that made it possible. Her attention to detail and dedication are unmatched.

We used Rev. Dawn after seeing her at a close friend's wedding. She's so genuine and nice, we knew she'd be a wonderful officiant for our wedding too. She's incredibly responsive.

She offers pre-marital counseling, which we didn't take advantage of, but it was never pushed on us. She's honest when she says its your decision. She's also an interfaith minister, which didn't matter to us, but I think its a nice touch if you are coming from two different backgrounds.

We loved having her as our officiant, and she is quick on her feet! We had two ring bearers with ring "stand ins" (instead of the real deal), when they went to give her the rings she quickly hid the real ones and took theres, avoiding a melt down.

Where do I even begin? Rev. Dawn has got to be one of the most genuine people that I have met in a long time, she was extremely professional and arrived earlier than planned. My husband and I feel so very blessed and grateful that we were able to have Rev. Dawn officiate over our intimate ceremony. From the very beginning her sweet disposition won us over. She was very patient with us and worked with us to develop a ceremony that was a direct reflection of who we are as a couple, my husband and I eloped so when we show the our wedding video to our friends and family they all comment about how our ceremony was like nothing they'd seen before and how fantastic our officiant was. I highly recommend Rev. Dawn! I promise, you will not be disappointed!
