  • We absolutely loved Dawn! She was really professional and personable. She provided a ton of resources for us to craft a personalized civil ceremony. We loved being able to have control over our ceremony, and create exactly what we wanted, while still having the guidance of someone experienced. She helped us make all the necessary tweaks to make the ceremony flow exactly right. Our ceremony was the highlight of our day thanks to Dawn!

  • Dawn Halstead was recommended by a friend of the family. From the first meeting we knew she was a perfect fit for our wedding plans! She was casual when we needed it, she was very helpful designing our ceremony's tone and content and the perfect professional throughout the experience from introduction, through rehearsal and the ceremony. Couldn't ask for a better officiant!

  • I'm am truly grateful that we used Dawn as our officiant. She showed up with a calming presence truly helped me relax the day before and the day of. We cannot thank her enough. She helped us customize our ceremony, it really felt like she helped us create something special. The happiness and peace I felt during the ceremony, and the compliments from friends and family on how beautiful it was the proof that it was something truly special. I recommend her to any couple, because I know she would help make something just as special for you too.

  • Rev. Dawn Halstead was instrumental in helping us shape our wedding ceremony. Before meeting her, we had no real concept of what we wanted our ceremony to look like, but with her help we were able to craft the simple, sweet, yet meaningful ceremony we wanted in our hearts all along. Our ceremony was beautiful, and we definitely recommend Rev. Dawn!

  • Rev. Dawn was an absolute delight to work with, she helped us through the service and let us add and edit things that we wanted to make it our own. I highly recommend her if you're looking for a non-judgemental officiant. Top notch professionalism and makes sure you are comfortable with everything before the big day. My husband is Hindu & we wanted to add something special for his religion/traditions. It was perfect! Thank you for making our special day wonderful!

  • Dawn was so great to work with. I can't say enough enough about how professional and knowledgeable she is but also relatable and kind. We came to her only about a month before our wedding but even with the time crunch she was willing and able to work with us. I had thought of using a family friend or something to save money but Dawn is worth every penny. She helped maintain my sanity. The ceremony was one area that I knew Dawn had under control amidst all of the wedding chaos. I was so happy to know this part would be taken care of and I could put my trust in her. She did amazing and really kept everyone in line and on time for the rehearsal and the ceremony. She really did help guide us though and encourage us on how to make our ceremony personalized and perfect for us. She was awesome! Thanks so much Dawn!

  • Dawn was very professional and did a great job customizing our ceremony. We were very pleased. She does take multiple appointments on the same day if time works out (she does also inform you of this) so she may not have the ability to move things around as much because she is try to satisfy the needs of other individuals as well. Overall we were very happy with Dawn and how well she helped make our ceremony more than what we could have hoped for.
