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!

Mark put together the perfect weddding ceremony for Dylan and I. We were pleasantly taken by his personal touches and our families and friends also loved the ceremony. We heard wonderful feedback from everyone. I would recommend Mark and his wife for anyone’s ceremony. They made our day super special!!!!!!

Thanks, Kati & Dylan! I was an absolute pleasure to be there for you. You are such a wonderfully loving couple. I'm so glad the rain held off that day. I'll take full credit for that, of course (cough, cough, ahem)! Many blessings to you both!

I am so happy we went with Mark! I wasn't comfortable with personal vows, but I wanted our ceremony to be personal, and Mark definitely made that happen! He showed up for our rehearsal and was very patient with the bridal party (they were all from out of town and we hadn't seen each other in a while). We practiced both inside and outside, due to weather. Day of the wedding it thunder stormed and we moved everything inside. It still went off without a hitch. I was crying and laughing through the whole ceremony, and so were all the guests! He completely nailed our personalities. If your looking for someone flexible and personable, then he is your guy! My husband and I were so happy we went with him!

Thank you, Melanie! You and Shane were such fun to work with and your bridal party was great! It was nice to see how well they interacted with each other and adapted to whatever the sky decided to do that day. No rain was going to get that group down! Many blessings and many happy days to you both!

Mark was absolutely wonderful to work with. He did a fabulous job with our wedding and made it very personal for us. All of our guests kept commenting on how nice the service was and how great Mark was. We couldn't have been happier with him!
A Simple Vow responded with the following comments:
Thank you, Jennifer! Your family members, especially your kids, are just as kind and considerate as you and Dub. It was wonderful to be there for all of you! BTW, those champagne cake toppers were adorable, though not as adorable as your ring-bearer! Many blessings to you, Dub, and your fantastic family!

Mark was seriously fantastic! He made our ceremony so personalized for the two of us. We loved knowing what the details where before the actual day. All our guests were involved in our ceremony. He made many laugh and cry. Our families want to see him in a church HAHA. Everyone didn’t believe us that we didn’t know him before we found him on the wedding sites. HE made it seem like he knew us FOREVER. Our ceremony was beyond perfect. If we ever renew our vows, Mark will be the guy for sure. We would recommend him to everyone who’s getting married!

Thank you so much, Ashley & Stephen! I am grateful to have been involved at this moment in your lives. I'm holding you to that vow renewal promise!

Mark was simply fantastic. The questionnaire that he provided to start the writing process was easy to understand and allowed him to put a unique flair on our ceremony. His choices of ceremony types allowed for us to pick one that best suited our needs. Most importantly, his delivery of the ceremony was impeccable. We would recommend Mark to anyone getting married in the PGH area.

Thank you, Seth! I truly enjoyed being there for you and Sarah. You two make a wonderful team. Many happy days to you both!

Mark was absolutely AMAZING. He is so down-to-earth and easy to talk to. My husband and I loved our ceremony and we received purely positive feedback from our guests. Our favorite includes someone asking "he's a family friend, right?" because our ceremony was so personalized, they thought we had known him for years! His ability to incorporate humorous and intimate components from our questionnaires into our ceremony made an extremely personalized service that allowed moments of laughter to break up our happy tears. We would totally recommend A Simple Vow. Could not have asked for a more perfect ceremony and experience working with Mark!

Thank you for the wonderful review, Tessa and Jake! t was truly a delight to be there for you. You two definitely had my eyes welling up a few times! Many happy days to you both!

Working with Mark was an absolutely wonderful experience. We had an intimate wedding, about 20 people total, and Mark was able to take our sense of humor and perfectly incorporate it into the ceremony. He crafted an absolutely perfect experience for us and captured our vision perfectly. We met via Skype and talked to him about our relationship, our family, how we felt about our wedding, and how we wanted the ceremony to feel. He was open to working with our requests and came up with some spot-on personal anecdotes within the ceremony! Couldn't be more ecstatic about working with A Simple Vow, would recommend it to anyone and everyone!
A Simple Vow responded with the following comments:
I thoroughly enjoyed being a part of your day, Katie & John! It may have been Groundhog Day, but I'm confident the two of you got it right the first time. Many happy days to you both!

Rev. Mark was the officiant for our wedding and he was absolutely wonderful. This was a 2nd wedding for my fiance and I and we wanted a very small intimate wedding with family only. I met with Rev. Mark prior to the wedding to get to know each other a bit and plan the ceremony. He has such a warm personality and so easy to talk to. We had the wedding at Phipps Conservatory and it was beautiful. I would highly recommend Rev. Mark's services. Actually, one of our guests that day asked for his contact information after the wedding because her daughter is getting married this year and she thought he did a great job with our wedding!

Thank you so much, Shelley! It was an absolute pleasure being there for you and Steve!
