  • My husband and I planned our wedding a month before the ceremony and were so glad we found Dana! She was immediately responsive and flexible to our needs. Wedding day was a bit, umm, chaotic and Dana rolled with it so well! She mingled with our guests and then officiated an absolutely perfect ceremony in spite of windy outdoor conditions and technical difficulties. She is incredibly sweet and open to allowing brides and grooms to express their individual desires in terms of personalities and religious beliefs. I feel like we got to know each other throughout the planning process and on my wedding day I feel like I gained a husband and a friend. I highly recommend Dana for her warmth, professionalism, and open mindedness. I feel confident saying she will do a remarkable job for you no matter what kind of ceremony you prefer. We had several people tell us at the reception how impressed they were with the job she did. We could not be more pleased.

    Erica, Your words are so touching. Thank you! I truly loved hearing about your relationship, family, beliefs and life. You are delightful and amazingly beautiful inside and out. I am a better person for having met you! Dana

  • We reached out to Dana with a very short window before our elopement and she wrote the most beautiful ceremony for us! It felt as though she had known us for years. She was even willing to meet us at the beach at 6:30 in the morning on a holiday weekend for our sunrise marriage. Her words were such peaceful magic and we couldn't be happier with how it turned out! Aside from the ceremony, she was also incredibly sweet and professional. If we did it over, we would pick her again in a heartbeat!

    Stephanie, Your wedding was an experience I will never forget! The sun rising, the cool water and scenic rock formation are all imprinted on my brain. Of course learning that penguins choose a mate for life will be one of those fun facts I will always remember as well. Thank you for choosing me to join you in marriage. Happiness always, Dana

  • Dana was a wonderful officiant, she customized our ceremony to be exactly what we wanted. She even met with us once in person to go over the ceremony and came to our rehearsal. She was always early and I never once worried about anything going wrong because she is very professional. I would highly recommend her to everyone.

    Thank you Savannah for the wonderful review. It was a pleasure to be a part of your big day. I enjoyed getting to know you and your family. I wish you a happiness always!

  • Dana with Love Avows was the perfect officiant for my new husband and I! She allowed me to make my own edits to her ceremony script and performed the ceremony in a calm and professional manner. It was beautiful! Thank you so much, Dana! Highly recommend!

  • We loved having Dana as our officiant. My wife spoke with her on the phone to go over the specifics. From that brief conversation she was convinced that Dana was the perfect match for the job. She was very quick in responding to us and answered all of our questions and concerns. Before the ceremony we also communicated over email in order for Dana to get to know us better and tailor the ceremony to us specifically. The day of the wedding she arrived early to go over the details of the ceremony so we would be at ease and know what to expect. She was able to create a very personal feel for us and included details unique to us and our relationship. Our guests loved how intimate the ceremony was and their reactions affirmed that Dana was the perfect choice. Thank you so very much!

    Santiago, Thank you for taking the time to write such a detailed review. I truly appreciate it. Your wedding was so special, between including your pups, parents and touching vows--it brought tears to everyone in attendance! Wishing you joy in each other, day after day, year after year. Dana

  • We found out ten days before our wedding that our officiant was unable to marry us. I posted on a Facebook site searching for someone. Dana was recommended to us and after looking at her page, we decided to book with her. I’m am so glad we did. She was on time, calm, and so personal. We did a destination wedding so we didn’t meet her until about 20 minutes before we got married. It was like she’s known us for years! Our ceremony was personal and beautiful. She incorporated so many personal touches and it was wonderful. I couldn’t imagine having anyone else marry us and I wouldn’t change a thing. We recommend Dana 100%.

    Lexi, Luckily for me Facebook brought us together! Your destination wedding was truly a Once-Upon-A-Tide affair with a beautiful bride, gentle groom and sunny beach setting. Happiness always, Dana

  • Dana was perfect! She was professional, flexible, and wrote the perfect words for our non-religious ceremony. I’ve never been to a wedding where they didn’t have bible verses or short sermons so I wasn’t sure what to expect or how the time would be filled in but Dana took care of it and used the answers to our questionnaire perfectly. Her words were thoughtful and heartfelt and she had the perfect tone. She knew exactly what to do when it came to rehearsing and handling the marriage license and she made herself available for the rehearsal last minute when I finally found out when we could have it. We couldn’t have found a better officiant!

  • My husband and I just got married last weekend and we found Dana on wedding wire. She was so great! She sent us a rough draft of the ceremony she had written and we instantly loved it. We also did a hand tying ceremony that she provided some history on as well. Our guests could not stop complimenting how beautiful the ceremony was. I would absolutely recommend Dana to anyone looking for a unique and dependable officiant!

    Britta, thank you for taking the time to write such a lovely review of my services. I am so happy that all enjoyed the ceremony and handfasting. The ritual is a lasting visual representation of joining two hearts. May your marriage be long and forever strong!

  • We planned a small wedding in about a month, Dana responded right away to my inquiry. We booked right away, the whole process was super easy thanks to how awesome Dana was with writing our ceremony and responding to my many questions. She is very professional and I would definitely recommend her . Our ceremony was beautiful and I wouldn’t change anything about it.

  • Dana was an invaluable resource for us when she didn't have to be at all... we had a makeup artist cancel on us at the last second, and she made a recommendation for a replacement and my wife looked fantastic. Besides that, we had some trouble with everyone arriving on time to the location and Dana patiently waited (in the middle of her work day) to help us make our special day a memorable one. She helped us with our vows and spoke clearly and we are left with a memory to be cherished for the rest of our lives. To take it one step further she even has been helping my wife with a recommendation for a new lab position! Basically, to summarize, shes the best & a great value... period.
