Dawn was incredible, she made our day so special. She sent through lovely samples before we even booked her and this helped make our decision to use her over other officiants as her ideas were so beautiful (e.g. sand ceremony prose and sea shell blessing). Dawn was so accommodating and helped us personalize our service and was quick to respond to each email. Overall incredibly professional, extremely friendly to all our guest and very competitively priced. Would not hesitate to recommend her. She even sent us a lovely thank you card a few days after the service. Kelly
Rev. Kenny was great to work with. we told her exactly what we wanted and she delivered! Loved having the help of ceremony script samples as well. Definitely Recommend!!! Megan & David
Dawn was a great help to our wedding plan. We are from CT and she was able to help us in our planning of catering, and other wedding planning. She was very responsive to our many questions and offered several options in the type of ceremony we wanted. The ceremony was beautiful on the beach at Sandbridge. Dawn did a wonderful job with the Sand Ceremony. I would highly recommend her for any couple looking in the Virginia Beach Area.

Dawn was a pleasure to work with. She was able to help sculpt our ceremony to our exact vision. She assisted us with selecting the readings and ceremony text. She was very patient, caring, and a wonderful person.
Rev. Dawn is such a peach! We booked her on short notice and she was very helpful and flexible. She encourages getting family and friends involved and offers help writing vows. She braved hot temperatures to perform a beach ceremony for us. Thank you Dawn!! Misti and Joe Dhume
Our ceremony was perfect! Dawn played a major role in helping the ceremony go smoothly. I was nervous the day of, and could not be more grateful for the way Dawn led us through the ceremony with ease. She helped us through the process from the first meeting to the end of the ceremony. I like all the options she had to choose from a list of ceremony samples, but she is willing to adjust and be flexible as well. I have no complaints! Aaron
Dawn was excellent! She gave us great advice on what type of ceremony we should have, and had great samples to select from. She met with us in advance, and kept us on task in writing and sending her our vows. Very reasonably priced, and on time for the ceremony. Ronilee
Dawn is absolutely wonderful! She emailed us a bunch of samples and we were able to customize our entire ceremony from start to finish. We even came up with a few things to add that we hadn't even thought of. She met us and emailed with us and came to our rehearsal, all which led up to a flawless ceremony the day of. I would definitely recommend her services. Amber
Dawn was absolutely wonderful. She was able to officiate our ceremony with less than 24 hours notice, and she did a beautiful job. I cannot recommend her enough -- even with such short notice, she took the time to meet with us prior to the ceremony and made sure we got the experience we wanted. if you're looking for someone warm, kind, and personable, Dawn is the officiant for you!

Dawn was amazing! We chose her after our wedding coordinator Ashly, recommended her to us. She was so sweet at the meeting we decided to book her.
She came over to our side (Yorktown) for our rehearsal and I am so glad she did...she definitely helped put my mind at ease. Dawn was also very flexible and allowed my fiance and I to write our ceremony ourselves. A couple wedding officiants I talked to before Dawn told me they wouldn't let us do that. Dawn had no problem with it and helped us figure out logistics and an order for the ceremony.
She was great! And I'm so glad we had her! Katie
Dawn was great. We running late, and she had another wedding to attend in just a few hours, but she was still great! She was professional, but very easy to work with. She made it much more comfortable for us and I was slightly nervous to say the least. Brandi A.
Working with Dawn was an outstanding experience! One of the easiest parts of the wedding plans! She was very helpful throughout the process. Highly recommended!! Jennifer B.
