  • OMG I could not be happier with my ceremony. Dana absolutely nailed it! The perfect amount of cute and fun mixed with the perfect amount of happy and tears. After only talking to us for about an hour, she managed to tailor a something that represented us perfectly. The wine box suggestion was GOLD and everyone couldn't stop talking about it. I couldn't tell you how many people approached to tell me how great Dana was. 10/10 would highly recommend =)

  • Dana did an amazing job of crafting the ceremony we wanted; something short and sweet, personalized, unique, with some tradition, and yet not boring. She was very prompt in responding to us, providing great ideas, and working with us to tailor the ceremony. If you are anything like me, I never remember the details about other ceremonies, however the guests are still telling us what a great job Dana did and how she really captured us!

  • We do not have words to express what an amazing person and officiant Dana Lawson is. When planning our wedding day, my now husband and I searched and searched for someone who we felt was not only closely aligned with our style and belief system, but someone that would be a part of a moment that we, and our guests, will relive for a lifetime. Dana first spent time with both of us, getting to know us and noting our interactions together. We then a provided additional detail about our relationship, and what makes us as a couple great, and what we admire about the other. She created the most romantic, personal and wonderful ceremony for us, of which our guests and even the wedding location vendor noted was one of the best they've ever seen. There was not a dry eye in house. :) It's clear that Dana truly loves what she does and gains a great deal of joy and satisfaction from her job as a celebrant. Both my husband and I wholeheartedly recommend her to any couple that understands that... Read more

  • I don't even know where to begin to start about the quality of service Dana provided for my husband and I. I put off a lot of crucial wedding details, one of them was not the officiant, I had booked the church first... 3-5 months before the wedding the church canceled because it was during Lent, I freaked out, Dana was so good about my stress and my last minute request! My husband and I met with Dana about three weeks before the wedding, we chatted for over an hour and after we left we knew she was perfect, she understood us as a couple with all our quirks and we felt like old friends. When we read the ceremony for the first time it was like she had been there for all seven years of our relationship, our ups and downs, she wrote it with elegance, finesse and just the right amount of humor (which is what we wanted). Dana is the example of professionalism without sacrificing the warmth and compassion that we were really looking for. She was willing to work around my husband and ... Read more

  • We are so glad that we used Dana Lawson as our celebrant wedding officiant! The ceremony was absolutely beautiful, and she captured every part of our story and relationship so perfectly. Dana really took the time to get to know us as a couple, and all of our guests were touched by the warmth and genuine feel of our wedding ceremony. Dana was so easy to work with and made the process of planning our wedding enjoyable and stress free. I am so happy with our decision, and I highly recommend Dana!

  • I cannot say enough good things about Dana Lawson. I attended a Dana Lawson ceremony 8 years ago and knew then that I wanted her to someday perform my ceremony. My husband and I did not want a ceremony like every other one we had been to and yet I did want to include some traditional aspects. Dana met with us in person to get to know us and then crafted a ceremony that captured us completely and was everything we wanted and more. We wanted a very different unity ritual - chocolate and peanut butter - and without batting an eye (or giving us a funny look) she said "I can write that" and gave us a ritual that had the perfect balance of lightness and reverence. Almost everyone attending commented on how beautiful the ceremony was and how Dana's delivery and tone set just the right "mood". The venue did not have the ceremony space set up quite right and Dana took charge and made sure everything was perfect. Dana was a very calming presence on a hectic day and with her in charge of the... Read more

  • Dana Silverberg Lawson officiated our Wedding on September 22nd 2013. Right from the first time we met we felt a true connection with her. She was interested in who we were as a couple and learning about what we wanted to make our ceremony unique to who we were as a couple. Dana was always available to answer any questions we had. She gave us lots of time and attention and encouraged us to find our true voice. She wrote a beautiful ceremony and was amazing the day of our wedding. We are so happy to have found Dana and couldn't have asked for a more special person to celebrate our special day.

  • We were looking for a wedding that was different than any other we had ever been to. We thought the venue we picked would be what people thought was the most special part, us included. We knew Dana was gonna be great but turns out she was what made our ceremony so special!! People cant stop talking about the ceremony and how connected she made everyone feel. Her attention to detail, willingness to do just about anything we needed and her personality were all amazing. I knew from the moment we decided to use Dana that we made the best choice of our wedding process. THANK YOU DANA!!

  • My husband and I were married in June of this year(2013) Dana was our lovely Celebrant. Dana first met with us a few months before our wedding. We liked her pleasant personality and commitment to her craft. We were guided through the process and provided the personal information about ourselves,our family and hopes for the future which Dana used to create our personalized Wedding Ceremony . Our vows were beautiful! We also incorporated a water blending into the Ceremony which we both loved. Our guests really enjoyed the Ceremony and sharing our wonderful day! Many offered comments about Dana and her enthusiasm in bringing my husband and I together in Marriage. My husband and I like her very much and would highly recommend her to officiate your wedding,too!

  • Dana Lawson designed a memorable ceremony for our wedding. She listened to us and she took the time to hear our feedback and suggestions in order to craft a wedding ceremony reflecting the personalities of my husband and I while also showing our unconditional love for each other.

  • I am Jewish and my husband is Catholic and we wanted to have some religious traditions in our ceremony, but most of all we wanted to have a ceremony that reflected our love for one another. We found Dana online and read her reviews and decided we would meet with her. She was absolutely perfect. She was very responsive to all our needs and gave us lots of suggestions for our ceremony. We then created our own ceremony based on the choices Dana gave us and then Dana personalized the wording with specific quotes that my husband and I spoke with her about. The Ceremony was everything we dreamed of. After our wedding, we had numerous people tell us that the Ceremony was just like us and it was the nicest one they had ever been to. We can't thank Dana enough!

  • Dana is wonderful. We saw her perform a friend's wedding years ago and liked it so much, we wanted her to do ours. She met with us in person, so we felt like we got to know her before the ceremony. Then she had us each fill out a questionnaire, which she used along with her notes from our meeting to create a totally personalized ceremony. She sent us the script ahead of time and let us choose which parts of the ceremony we wanted to include (vows, ring exchange, etc.), so we weren't surprised or disappointed on our big day. The ceremony went smoothly, and was exactly what we wanted. Dana tailored everything to us, so even though we'd seen her do a ceremony before, ours was completely different. During the reception, at least a dozen guests told us it was the best ceremony they'd ever seen, and I have to agree.

  • Dana is simply amazing!! My husband and I needed to find someone to marry us 3 weeks before our wedding. The original person that was going to marry us didn't work out and I was freaking out thinking we wouldn't find anyone. I came across Dana's profile on wedding wire and read great reviews about her. I emailed her that night and she got back to me within a few hours! She was the sweetest person I have ever met! She really loves what she does and you can tell by the work she did for us. She made a huge effort in getting to know us with only 3 weeks before our big day. She asked us lots of questions to get to know us and she really cared and truly loves what she does. We met her for coffee to discuss what we wanted in our wedding ceremony and we hired her on the spot! She was such a pleasure to work with and she really went above and beyond, especially with only 3 weeks till our big day. She actually sent us a draft a few days later of our ceremony. She was great with giving ad... Read more
