We've all been there.

The boring wedding ceremony. It starts out pretty okay. There's peppy music playing! The bridal party looks great! The couple is as happy as they've ever been, holding hands and looking at each other with love in their eyes. And then the officiant starts to speak and well, maybe speak isn't quite the word for it. It's more like drone. It sounds like perhaps they're just reading the ceremony from a book for the first time; just going through the motions. The ceremony was a bit long, a bit dry, a bit awkward, but, hey, at least everyone got a nice nap in before the reception, right?

Ties can double as drool-catchers!

You don't want that! You want a wedding ceremony that reflects your married life- joyful, warm, loving and personal. Something that's sweet or serious where it needs to be and light and playful as well. You want real humor, not corny jokes. Most of all, you want a celebration of you as a couple and your commitment to build a life together.

You're going to need a wedding officiant who is open to your ideas; who will travel to your location so you can celebrate your day in your own way; one who'll work with you to make your ceremony go as smoothly as possible, and who can help calm your nerves on such a momentous occasion.

Am I that guy? Well, that's up to you.

I'm an interfaith minister who's been described as having an easy-going nature, a warm personality, and a sense of humor said by some to be playful, others as witty and by my wife as "12". Once, I had someone refer to my voice as "liquid chocolate". I'm not sure what he meant by that, but I was assured it was a good thing.

The only way you can know for sure is to click that button up there and contact me. Let's work together to give you the wedding that the two of you want and deserve!

Rev Mark from A Simple Vow was absolutely amazing. He made our ceremony so personal, so touching, and so fun. We had so many guests ask us if he was a family friend because of how personal he made it. Can't say enough good things about him!

Rev. Mark made our wedding BEYOND what we hoped for. From first meeting him, you have a sit down meeting to get to know each other and your expectations for the wedding. Everything is completely customized and he did a wonderful job of including personal details. He caters to all couples and really has a personality for all crowds. Thanks to his professionalism and genuine personality for making our wedding day unforgettable.

We couldn't have been happier with our wedding ceremony thanks to Mark. He listened to exactly what we wanted, what we didn't want, and had suggestions for everything that we had no idea about. He made our ceremony personal and witty. The most frequent compliment out of the whole day was how wonderful the ceremony was. Everyone asked "where did you find him, he was perfect!" We are extremely satisfied with his services and would recommend A Simple Vow to anyone planning their wedding.

Thank you, Alysha! It was such a delight to be a part of your day. Many happy days to you, John and that gem of a little girl!

If you are one of the lucky ones to have Rev Mark be part of your special day I say jump on it! I can not say enough nice things about this man. He is very caring, perfessional, and knows just what to do on this day when us brides feel like we're losing our minds. He makes you feel comfortable and at ease and the ceremony itself is beautiful! Highly recommend him!

Working with Rev Mark and his wife couldn't have been more perfect!! He took the time to talk to us and even tho he really didn't know us he made our ceremony feel like he had forever. We got so many compliments asking how we knew him and how personal he made it feel. His wife was amazing too. So kind and helpful making sure everyone was in place and ready to go. These two truly enjoy what they do and our wedding couldn't have been any better so happy they were able to share it with us. Erica and Matt

Mark and his wife were WONDERFUL. We met with Mike over a year before our wedding and we hit it off immediately. He truly wants to give you what ever vision you desire and does not push his own opinions or try to take over the ceremony. He would respond to emails in less than 1 day and was so accommodating with needing to reschedule because of our hectic schedules. He captured our vision perfectly and made everyone laugh. We could not recommend him enough !
A Simple Vow responded with the following comments:
Thanks, Kim! I was just a frame around your vows and Eric's. You two were amazing! Best to you both!

Mark was easily one of the easiest and best parts of our wedding. The ceremony left many guests convinced that Mark must have known us for years or met with him for hours before hand but in reality his methods of gathering information did not add any stress to the wedding planning process. I highly recommend Mark for anyone looking for a personalized wedding experience.

Thanks, Matt! You and Kristen are incredibly wonderful together. It was a pleasure to be a part of your day. Many blessings to you both!

Mark and Jeanie couldn't have made our day any better. If you're looking for someone who is funny, light and keeps everyone awake during the ceremony whether it be short or a bit more traditional, Mark is definitely the officiant for you. I have some of the best photos due to him making my husband and I laugh hysterically. His wife Jeanie, shes great if you did what my husband and I did and that was plan the wedding ourselves. We were on a budget and paying someone to plan it with us wasnt in the cards but Jeanie was great. She was exactly what I needed the day of the wedding. She kept me calm and grounded when my nerves were shot. She made sure everything was set up perfect and that the boys were where they should be. I don't think ill ever be able to thank them enough for how special they made our day. You're getting the best of the best when you choose A Simple Vow for your special day!

Thank you for the wonderful review, Skyler! Jeanie and I had a wonderful time with you, William and your families! Many blessings to all of you!
