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 fantastic! He really got to know us as a couple and personalized our ceremony just the way we wanted it to be. He and his wife were extremely patient with our awful venue coordinator and helped us at the rehearsal (and during the ceremony) get everything set up the way we wanted it to be in spite of her. Would absolutely use him again but obviously would hope never to have to :)

Mark was amazing! He had everyone laughing and crying with his thoughtful words. We had only met with Mark once and then had a few messages back and forth but we can't tell you how many guests swore that we must have known him our entire lives given the words he spoke and how perfect it was for us! It was a perfect ceremony. Thanks again, Mark!

Rev. Mark is, without a doubt, an absolute joy to work with!!! From the time we had our first meeting, up to and through our ceremony, he was sure to help us along the way and custom tailored our ceremony to fit our personalities perfectly. We are so happy with the events of the day, and Rev. Mark was sure to keep the mood light, fun and unique, while still creating a respectable and romantic moment, that we will cherish for the rest of our lives.

I can't say enough good things about Mark and his wife Jeannie. They are an amazing team and did such a good job. We got so many compliments on the ceremony Mark did for us... Everyone loved it. He really went above and beyond to personalize our ceremony. Everyone thought he knew us as friends! And Jeannie is amazing at organizing everything and making sure it all runs smoothly! Mark is also the most reasonably priced officiant I found! You will not regret working with this amazing team!

Rev. Mark is incredibly easy to work with and will walk you through the entire process while providing ample examples of previously done ceremonies as guidance. We are not religious and wanted something laid back and simple and Rev. Mark had no problem accommodating our needs and was able to make it fun, personalized, and just the right amount of quirky. Having seen some video of other ceremonies he's done and reading examples, though he could really deliver anything you wanted though and had some really sweet ideas for unity ceremonies that I had never heard or thought of. His website makes everything (questionnaires, payment, etc.) a breeze and he was always timely in responding to emails and able to meet on short notice (and understanding when we couldn't make it) and made planning the wedding from out of town feel like no issue at all. I would recommend him to anyone! As a bonus he's good with dogs :)

Mark and Jeanie were amazing to work with! They were exactly what we wanted to make our ceremony unique and special. They are very thorough, flexible, and thoughtful of their clients. I heard of them through a friend, and I am so thankful that I did! I would highly recommend them to any couple.

Rev. Mark was great!! All of our guests raved about how personal our ceremony was! It showed our personalities, while still being religious enough to appease grandparents. Rev. Mark was so easy to work with and took all our suggestions and made them into key elements of the ceremony- he was one of the best decisions we made while planning our dream wedding!!

Book him, book him, book him!! I could not have been happier with my ceremony that Rev Mark came up with for us. It was funny and sincere and very much us. I had multiple family members asking me if he was a friend of ours because it was so personalized. He always answered any emails or questions I had same day. He made everything extremely easy and was great during the rehearsal too. I highly encourage anyone to use him!
