  • Dana was just perfect! She was very professional from the beginning and worked with us to make sure we are happy with every aspect of our ceremony. The ceremony was beautiful, Dana helped us organize our processional and we did not have to worry about a thing! We got married on the beach in December and even though it was very cold and windy Dana did a wonderful job!! We would definitely recommend her!!!

  • We had the most beautiful and meaningful ceremony I have ever witnessed. Dana met with us in person and truly listened to our love story as if it was the first she'd ever heard. She took time getting to know us which was the most meaningful part about the experience. Dana sent us a detailed questionnaire that asked questions that were enjoyable to answer and that also painted a picture of who we are as individuals and as a couple. She gave us many great suggestions about readings and rituals and let us determine our ceremony. It was a pressure-free experience from planning to execution. Dana accompanied us to our rehearsal, she was prompt and looked absolutely professional. She also did a great job of keeping the nerves away and the somewhat rowdy bridal party focused. After the ceremony, many of my guests asked me about Dana and different elements of our ceremony because it was simply that beautiful. The ceremony turned out to be the most beautiful and meaningful part of the day, not ... Read more

  • My husband Steve and I could not have been happier with Dana Lawson as our wedding officiant. From our first meeting, she was professional, friendly, open to our suggestions and eager to make our ceremony exactly how we wanted it. She provided timely drafts of our ceremony and kept us on schedule to finalize in time for the wedding. And her delivery of the ceremony itself was great - no mixing up pronouns (which happened at a wedding I recently attended), no cracking jokes that are not funny and her voice was loud and clear so everyone could hear and enjoy. Many people at our wedding commented on how great she was and I would highly recommend Dana Lawson as an officiant to anyone looking for one (which I did to my sister whose wedding she also officiated this past spring!).

  • We cannot say enough about Dana- she is wonderful! She was able to craft a beautiful ceremony for our wedding that captured who we are as a couple. It was personal, heartfelt, and truly memorable. We still receive compliments about our ceremony from our guests. We will remember and cherish our ceremony for a lifetime.

  • Dana was an amazing celebrant; my husband and I couldn't have have hoped for a more heartfelt and moving ceremony. Dana's ability to truly hear our unique story as a couple---including our idiosyncrasies, our strengths, and our challenges---and to weave that story into a rich ceremony that evoked both laughter and tears in all of our guests--is Dana's innate gift. I would highly recommend Dana Silverberg Lawson to all couples wanting a wedding ceremony that they'll remember for a lifetime!

  • Choosing Dana to officiate our wedding ceremony was the best choice we could have made! She personalized our ceremony and gave us complete creative control so that we were 110% happy with it! She gave us options so it was easy to understand and make decisions. It was open-ended, but not too open-ended that it was difficult or confusing. The process was easy and fun, Dana made it a joyful experience from day one. Friends and family told us that it was the best wedding ceremony they ever saw. During our Receiving Line, everyone was raving about the ceremony and how personal it was. People kept saying, "it was so you!" Guests were impressed with how clear and loud Dana was able to speak, and how nice she was. But most importantly, that it reflected us and our relationship - and that it was different. It was spiritual, fun and an overall joyful ceremony. The last thing it was, was "stuffy" - like many ceremonies are. We had a great, fun time during our ceremony, which many... Read more

  • Dana Lawson was a wonderful wedding celebrant. My husband and I were extremely pleased with her services. She is extremely warm and caring. I am Jewish and my husband is Catholic and Dana really worked with us to create a ceremony that matched our values and beliefs perfectly. She was always available to answer any questions we had and guide us through the ceremonial rituals. Since the wedding, we have received many calls from family and friends complimenting Dana, saying it was the most beautiful ceremony they had ever attended. I would highly recommend Dana to any couple getting married.

  • Dana was absolutely amazing. She lived a couple hours away from us, so she met us halfway at our first meeting...and I hired her on the spot! She's extremely friendly and it's obvious she loves what she does. She makes sure to personalize your ceremony as much as you want and makes it a point to get to know as much as possible about the couple. I got so many compliments on the ceremony after the wedding and I already had one friend ask for her information, so they can use her at their wedding! A+++++

  • We used Dana for our wedding May 29, 2011. From the very beginning she was wonderful! She took the time to get to know us, learn about how we met, what we like about each other, and what are background are to create a customized ceremony. We wanted a ceremony that incorporated a few jewish traditions while staying fairly neutral in terms of religion. We didnt know too much about Jewish tradition but Dana brought a ton of knowledge to help us. She met with us multiple times, was always willing and available to talk and gave suggestions. She also handled our rehersal as well to make sure everyone knew what to do. We spoke to many officiants before we decided on Dana and we are so glad we chose her. She really does go above and beyond. If you are looking for an officiant and are able to book her, I would highly recommend it!

  • Dana was an incredibly caring and attentive celebrant, from the first meeting it was clear that she truly loves what she does. She really took the time to work with us on what we wanted out of our ceremony and was able to take all of our disparate ideas and craft a beautiful ceremony that was totally "us". We felt taken care of from start to finish.

She got to know us so that it felt natural during the cermony and she was able to incorporate our story into our vows. We enjoyed working with her and would recommend her to anyone!

  • Dana wove an amazing wedding for us. It was personalized for us, including some of the traditions we felt strongly about. Even now, almost 5 years after we were married, people still comment on how perfect the ceremony was for us, how much it reflected us as a couple, and how awesome Dana was. The ceremony didn't drag on, and was a great mix of humor and solemnity. I will be forever grateful to Dana for crafting the absolute perfect ceremony for us. She's also wonderful to work with, and from the very first moment we met her, we were comfortable with her, as if we'd known her for years. She has that way about her, and it's a very calming influence for a crazed bride.
