About Dawn

I specialize in customizing ceremonies and rituals that are as unique as you are — as individuals and as a couple. I encourage you to include your own readings, words, vows and rituals in the ceremony, if you so choose. I will meet with you initially in person, or by phone or Skype, to learn more about you and your wishes.

Remember, this is your day. I want to assist you by creating a day that is as beautiful and lovely as it can possibly be. A day to remember. A new beginning.


Dawn's Philosophy

I believe a couple's commitment to one another is a transformative time in their lives. It is one of many special events that you will share throughout your life together. A marriage marks a sacred rite of passage on your life's journey. Sharing your wedding with family and friends is an important public affirmation of the love and joy you have found in one another.

As an ordained minister in the United Church of Christ, I affirm all loving couples that desire to marry. My education and experience covers a broad spectrum of ministering with people of all faith/spiritual dimensions, cultures, nationalities and practices. If you have no religious affiliation or faith expression, you are welcome. People of all expressions of sexual/gender orientation are welcome.

When we meet, I will invite you to share your stories with me. Stories reveal who we are; they reveal what brings meaning and value to our life. As I learn about your hopes and dreams, we will create together a ceremony that reflects your personalities, expectations and vision.

No matter who you are or where you are on life’s journey, I welcome you.
