Dawn Brown was a breath of fresh air for my wife and I. From our first phone call to our meeting to finalize everything she kept us in check. Which is need when we had so much on our minds. I would recommend her to everyone that is thinking about getting married. Everyone was asking where we found her. Please let Dawn know how much she was appreciated and she most certainly will have some more weddings to come in our family tree!
