  • Dawn has been the best to work with while planning our wedding ceremony. We really felt that the ceremony is the most important part of our wedding day, and we wanted to make it completely personalized to us & what we wanted. Dawn has guided us through the workbook she gives us as a gift (which is phenomenal) to form what will certainly be the ceremony of our dreams ... as we marry the people of our dreams! :) She is friendly, professional, and I know, come August, she will provide the best officiant services around! Book her!

  • We cannot offer enough praise for Dawn! We chose her elopement-style ceremony, which means we did not meet her in person beforehand. Yet she was quite responsive to our wishes in our email correspondence. As it turns out, we had no cause for trepidation as Dawn performed the ceremony perfectly to our liking. She hit all the right notes and everything went beautifully. We could not be more delighted with Dawn’s services on our wedding day. Thank you, Dawn!

  • Dawn help us design the perfect ceremony for our wedding. Her guidance helped us personalize the details from beginning to end and I wouldn't change any part of it. We really appreciated her professionalism during the rehearsal to keep our wedding party moving along. When everything is moving so quickly on your wedding day, it was wonderful to have Rev. Dawn Halstead help direct all of the moving parts (family, DJ, wedding party, etc.) so we could start the ceremony on time. We are very grateful to have had her as our officiant on our wedding day.

  • My husband and I got married in a different state than where we currently live. We didn't have our own pastor back in Iowa because we had been gone for so long. We found Dawn online and met her via skype. She made this process easy; it was one less thing to worry about during the planning process. The wedding book gave us many options to plan the perfect ceremony. Everyone loved the ceremony and everything went smoothly. Thank you, Dawn, for making our day perfect!

  • Dawn was Amazing! Very easy to work with and patient since my husband and I had no idea what we were doing. She offered her ideas and listened to what we had to say and what we wanted. I had several compliments from friends and family about how amazing the ceremony was. Thank you Dawn!!! You made my Day Perfect!!

  • Rev. Dawn was wonderful to work with! We loved that we were able to really personalize our ceremony and make it our own. After the wedding we had MANY guests give us compliments on our "perfect" ceremony. We also had Rev. Dawn perform our son's baptism on our rehearsal night. It turned out amazing and it was a very special event!

  • Reverend Dawn was a wonderful officiant. She was thoroughly professional, but kept the mood light, which fit perfectly with our celebration. Reverend Dawn helped us through the entire process, from choosing vows and readings appropriate to us, to planning the sequence of events during the ceremony. I would strongly recommend her to any couple.

  • I found Dawn online and after getting an email back within 30 minutes of inquiring her services, I knew that she was the perfect fit to officiate our wedding! We met with Dawn for premarital sessions which was very beneficial to us. She was flexible with her appointments to meet with us and genuinely cared about us as a couple. The ceremony was beautiful and she made the process easy and relaxed. We would definitely recommend Dawn to anyone looking for an officiant in the Central Iowa area.

  • My husband and I agree that our ceremony was one of our favorite components of our wedding. With Dawn's help we were able to personalize it to fit us. Most of our guests commented on how wonderful our ceremony was. We were planning a wedding remotely, so it was essential for us to find an officiant who was able to work with our schedule. Dawn was not only willing to work with our schedule, but also took advantage of Skype to meet with us face to face rather than on the phone. She constantly put forth extra effort to make our experience with her perfect. She sent us a book to read through to help provoke thoughts and questions about what components and readings we would like to have in our ceremony. The day of the wedding Dawn made things easy. She was truly a joy to work with, and I am very glad we found her. We highly recommend Dawn.

  • Dawn was excellent. She provided helpful resources. We ended up wanting some different elements so did a lot ourselves. I'm sure if we had asked she would have been very helpful. She did a lot to make us comfortable and assisted throughout the process whenever we needed it. We would definitely recommend her.
