  • Ceremonies by Dana (3 stars) When we met Dana, we immediately loved her, and booked her pretty far out from our wedding. She didn’t start our ceremony until about a month out, which is fine, but I would have preferred it out of the way far earlier (okay, personal choice). However, we made it very clear that we wanted an “unplugged ceremony” (where you ask everyone to put away their phones and cameras to be present in the moment with you), and even had her start out by making the announcement. However, she read the announcement, and the entire ceremony, off of her cell phone; we were incredibly disappointed about that. We loved that she was willing to do so many drafts with our suggestions, but when I said I wanted to make sure the ceremony wasn’t too short, coming in around 20 minutes maybe, she said we were good but our ceremony only ended up being around 11 minutes (including the procession and recession). While you can expect a few minutes give or take, that was a lot,... Read more

  • I saw Dana officiant a wedding that I was in a few years ago. I thought to myself that when I get married she is going to be my officiant. She was so funny and really made the ceremony a relaxed event. So far we have only met for our initial consultation. We went into this appointment not realizing how many options we really have. I can't wait until it comes time for us to start working together more and see what she comes up with for the ceremony. **Update** The ceremony was perfect (besides the weather). Dana made it perfect. It was short, sweet, to the point, and funny. My friends and family even threw in their comments to make it perfect. The one thing we really liked that we did was after we said "I do" she talked to the guests and had them say "We do" to supporting us forever. Very sweet!

  • What a joy Dana was to work with. Her bubbly attitude blew us away from the get go. I think it took a matter of five minutes after leaving our first meeting to decide to hire her on. When we got the draft of the ceremony... it was perfect! Totally me and my husband, in a few pages - she got it, she got us! I couldn't help but giggle to myself during the ceremony... there she was - totally happy - totally on point - and totally professional all at the same time. Dana actually seemed just as happy for us as our family and friends, and we had only met and spoke with her a few times! She truly made our wedding day insanely special. I cannot say enough about her, her creativeness, and just all around demeanor. Dana is a blast!

  • Dana is SUPER fun to work with. I can't tell you how many compliments we got on our wedding ceremony. People could not believe that we found and hired Dana through the www; they thought she must have been an old friend of ours. The ceremony was so personal and intimate. We could not have asked for anything more special. There was not a dry eye in the house. Plus, Dana is extremely organized and collaborative. We went back and forth on our ceremony draft and she was always more than happy to make any changes we wished for. She is so awesome at her job. This is her true calling!

  • We are so glad that we choose Dana to be our officiant! She was always on top of everything and always sent us updates and reminders when we had to have things complete (worksheets, file license with town, etc.). Dana is extremely organized and timely with everything and helpful making our ceremony PERFECT! We had numerous compliments of Dana from our guests as well and I would 100% recommend her for your wedding :)

  • Dana was absolutely fabulous!!! We knew as soon as we sat to talk to her that we wanted her to officiate our ceremony! Dana wrote a beautiful ceremony, helped us with our vows and even made a suggestion about a family sand blending to include our kids. Dana was so helpful throughout the entire process.

  • My husband and I booked Dana for our wedding after meeting with her for literally 5 minutes. We knew instantly we wanted Dana to officiate our wedding. She is so personable and boisterous, she was exactly what I wanted for our short, sweet and casual wedding ceremony. Dana was great to work with. We worked closely together on our ceremony and personalized the entire thing to exactly what we were looking for. Our guests still keep telling us that they loved our ceremony and how it was so true to us as a couple, and it is all thanks to Dana!

  • Dana was so much fun to work with and she is amazing at what she does! She wrote a beautiful ceremony for our wedding that I am still getting compliments about. She captured the tone we were looking for wonderfully - no religion, light, funny, and leaves everyone smiling. She responded to all questions very quickly and is a great resource for the state marriage process. We could not have asked for anything more, Dana exceeded our expectations. Thank you Dana!!

  • Dana did a great job with our wedding! We are an interfaith couple and she had some great ideas regarding similarities and traditions with the religions that were perfect. She has a great sense of humor, and when you speak to her, you'll know she was born to be in front of people. She wrote a beautiful ceremony and mixed in some funny, personal jokes to make it special. I definitely recommend Dana for traditional weddings and silly ceremonies alike.

  • Dana was absolutely wonderful! She wrote a beautiful ceremony and made it exactly what we wanted. It was so personal, and she very easily was able to capture the tone I was looking for for my ceremony. She understood what we wanted and made it better than I could have imagined. Dana was a pleasure to work with, always available to answer questions. She created my ideal ceremony which became my favorite part of the whole day.

  • Working with Dana was a dream. She was a professional, no nonsense guide who helped us design our own wedding and stay on track with all the paperwork and bureaucracy. Dana was on time for all of our appointments, clear with her directions and very open to letting us create the ceremony we desired. She has a sunny personality and it was a pleasure to have her be part of our wedding day.

  • i loved dana within the first 5 minutes of our meeting. she just has a friendly and easy-going personality and i just KNEW that we had to book her for our wedding. Dana was extremely easy to work with and was patient with us. she is professional, listens to your wants and definitely delivers a great ceremony. so many people complimented us on the ceremony saying it was personal, sweet and a tearjerker! If you're looking for an officiant that is fun and organized - Dana is your girl! and for all those ladies teetering on the church or officiant, my two girlfriends who are getting married in a church told me that if they didn't have to get married in a church, our ceremony would be the way they want to get married!!

  • Dana was the absolute best officiant we could have asked for. From the minute we sat down at our first meeting, my wife and I could tell that there was no further searching to be done. She was receptive to our every idea, from a shorter, more couple related ceremony to our hopes of sprinkling in some Harry Potter references. She was available 24/7 for further correspondence, and her work was simply superb. I cannot recommend Dana Zipkin enough to any prospective couples.

  • Dana is such a fantastic person to work with and my husband and I are so grateful to have had her officiate our wedding! When we first started the process of choosing an officiant, it was priority to have someone who would build a ceremony that really reflected who we were as a couple while leaving religion out of the picture (we both come from two very different families that are very religious). The first time we met with Dana my husband and I both knew she was our perfect choice. She was so down to earth, shared our sense of humor, and was a genuine person. All of these traits and more made working with her a breeze! She was always available for questions, sending a quick e-mail (even in the late hours of the night!), and getting any information that was necessary to us before we even had to ask. Our ceremony was so beautiful and so personal, there were tears of laughter and joy had by all and that made it perfect. Dana knew we wanted a funny, light-hearted, and still tou... Read more
