TWO ANNOUNCEMENTS, SUMMER 2015

1. Saturday, August 1st, for the first time ever, I'm thrilled to offer full certified premarital education for couples in a one-day program, along with a BONUS couples financial workshop, all for only $425-- a savings of over $350 over individual sessions. I only have room for eight couples, so please msg. me right away if you think you may be interested and would like more information.

2. My heart is full of joy for my same-sex couples- it has always been my honor to work with you, and I am thrilled to now be able to offer you the legal unions you so rightly deserve. Premarital counseling open to all same-sex couples as well.

----

It is an honor and a gift to co-create ceremonies with you. I wake up every day grateful to get to do what I love.

I speak Spanish, French, and English and, as an Interfaith Minister, have a background in all the world's major religions. I specialize in working with couples to develop custom ceremonies that best reflects their unique spirituality, heritage, and love story.

I also affordable premarital counseling in a laid-back setting that focuses on offering couples a safe space to listen to each other and to develop tools for effective communication and conflict resolution. I don't require counseling, but I'm a BIG fan of it for virtually every couple-- the sessions offer an invaluable opportunity to share on foundational topics in a comfortable space with a neutral third party, and to learn tools that have worked for other couples for things like- truly hearing each other out when you're going in circles or not seeing eye-to-eye, making regular quality time for each other, and more.

In addition to officiating, I have written about relationships and holistic living for various outlets. My work has been featured in Whole Life Times, Awareness Magazine, The Messenger, LA Yoga Magazine and Atlanta's Oracle 20-20, the Rainbow Wedding Network Magazine, and GatheringGuide.com, and I served as the author of the popular weekly column, "Ask the Rev" on GetMarried.com.

Feeling overwhelmed with choices to be made? Not sure how to decide on a next step?

I also offer life coaching for professionals at a turning point-- private, individual coaching that focuses on manifesting your goals through a holistic exploration focused on overcoming blocks and challenges personally and professionally. www.WholeLifeSolutions.biz

We truly enjoyed working with Rev. Dawn. She was extremely organized, responsive to our emails and phone calls, and flexible with catering to what we wanted. She provided us with different outlines which we chose to modify to be more representative of who my husband and I are as a couple. She worked with us down to the last few days on making modifications. And last minute (like the day before) when I decided to surprise my husband and say half of my vows in my husband's native language, she was very accommodating and even though we didn't practice it, it went as smooth as could be. Finding the right person to officiate our wedding wasn't as easy as we though it would be. However, we were very pleased to have found Rev. Dawn.

We were nothing but pleased and at ease with Rev. Dawn throughout the entire process. We enjoyed working with her and would recommend her personal ceremony in a heartbeat.

The ceremony was so much more than we could have hoped for or possibly imagined. It was the highlight of our day and most of our guests commented at one point or another on the wonderful heartfelt ceremony. I mention this because I truly expected the post ceremony reception to be the thing we talked about after all was said and done. Not the case here; we have not been able to stop talking about how special, meaningful, and individual the ceremony was in the end.

I can't say enough about how amazing Rev. Dawn is. We got married over two months ago (10.18.14) and I still have guests who approach me to compliment the unique ceremony, her officiating, and the incredible job she did in three languages. You read that right- Rev. Dawn officiated our wedding ceremony in English, French AND Spanish- and so beautifully, with such poise, that our guests from all over the world were not only impressed, but touched.

From the minute I found Rev. Dawn (I still think it was a mini-miracle) I knew she would be perfect for our non-religious, multicultural, lighthearted wedding ceremony. She was very easy to work with and helped guide us through the process to create something special- just for us. She worked hard to make sure we were happy and comfortable with every aspect of the ceremony, and paid particular attention to the languages and assuring the words carried the correct tone and meaning.

When I look back on our wedding day, it makes me emotional to remember it all and I feel lucky that we found Rev. Dawn to marry us. Both my husband and I highly recommend her!

Reverend Dawn officiated for our wedding ceremony on October 12, 2014 and we cannot thank her enough for the fabulous job that she did. Rev. Dawn helped us to put together a beautiful ceremony that was a true reflection of who we are as a couple. I can't tell you how many people told us that our ceremony was the most beautiful they had witnessed. And, as we expected, the sweetness and intimacy that was created during the ceremony carried over to the rest of our day. Rev. Dawn was a big part of giving us our perfect wedding and celebration. I cannot recommend her enough.

Dawn was such a joy to work with. She made our ceremony so personal and we cannot count how many compliments we have received about her and the ceremony as a whole. The wedding ceremony is often forgot in the wedding planning process, but the ceremony is the reason there is a party. Dawn highlighted our love for one another and put together the perfect ceremony for us. There wasn't a dry eye in the house. We also had premarital counseling with her and it has given us plenty of tools to always communicate a little more. Dawn is kind, willing to work with crazy schedules, and has an amazing talent. We cannot recommend Dawn enough to couples looking for a personal touch to their wedding. Thank you, Dawn!

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

Rev Dawn was amazing. Her ceremony and words at our wedding this summer were touching, emotional and long lasting.

Her ideas and guidance helped us out with it being unique and tailored to our story. She always had time for us and made us at ease whenever we talked. We were somewhat time constrained this summer due to travels and being long distance with her. Her ability to help out and adjust her schedule with Skype and phone interviews showed her drive and how much she cared for us and our ceremony.

We could not have asked for a more perfect officiant.

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.
