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 was the first and only officiant we met with. When we left the initial meeting, my husband and I couldn’t stop talking about his relatability, humor, and ability to put us at ease during the stressful process. Leading up to the wedding, he was very communicative, helpful, and supportive with choosing ceremony wording and making sure the whole ceremony was exactly what we wanted. He provided many great tools to help him get to know us as a couple and to help us formulate everything we wanted to say with our ceremony. Our guests went on and on about how personal and fun the ceremony was. They were especially impressed with the officiants ability to translate our humor and personalities into a cohesive and touching ceremony. I would so highly recommend A Simple Vow for all of those reasons and more. We are so happy with the way everything went.

Reverend Mark beyond exceeded our expectations for an officiant on our wedding day. We had numerous people coming up to us after the ceremony telling us that it was the most beautiful ceremony they had seen and praised reverend Mark, even asking where we found him! We cannot say enough about Reverend Mark and would recommend him to everyone!

Rev Mark is phenomenal. Let me start by saying that. To echo what others have said before, if you are looking for an officiant, this is the person you want. My husband and I received countless compliments on how personal and moving our ceremony was. Rev Mark worked with us to make it exactly what we wanted. He provided sample ceremonies and tons of readings for us to review and build from. We didn't know what to expect when we decided to work with an officiant and it was truly better than we could ever imagine. My husband actually said the ceremony was his favorite part of the day. HOW OFTEN DO YOU HEAR PEOPLE SAY THAT? Book him and I promise you will not regret it.

I'm so glad we chose Mark to officiate our wedding! He was professional and very respectful of our wants and needs! He arrived on time and met all my expectations! We met with him several weeks prior to discuss the style of wedding we were planning, and he offered us plenty of ceremony options. He even offered to help us write our own vows! My favorite part of Mark's service was the fact that that he added a touch of humor to our ceremony. I hate how sometimes a wedding can feel so stuffy and formal. Mark made sure our wedding was fun! He made everyone so comfortable with his very "down to earth" personality, and he tossed a couple jokes in to get our crowd laughing and enjoying the moment. Mark helped us to really create a very special day that we will cherish forever!

Rev. Mark was so great to work with. He has a great personality and is so easy to talk to. Mark really got to know us the months leading up to our wedding, and used our stories in the ceremony. It was nice to be able to customize the ceremony , and Mark really helped us with the outline. He was also very helpful at the rehearsal , and his wife was so helpful the day of the wedding with the order and timing of the procession. What Mark wrote for our ceremony was personal and also had just the right amount of humor to keep it from being boring. ALL of our guests have complimented Rev. Mark and told us how much they enjoyed the ceremony.

Rev. Mark is great! We had a short, simple ceremony in our home, and he was the perfect officiant for us - very professional, but also warm and funny. He was very responsive to emails, and although we didn't meet him before our wedding day, we had perfect confidence in him.

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!
