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 was amazing. He met with us several times leading up the wedding. Our ceremony was completely customized to us as a couple, as well as to what we wanted out of the ceremony. I wanted something different then the cookie cutter ceremony, and couldn’t have been happier with the result. I am still having guests tell me it was the best ceremony they have been too. I would recommend Mark for all your ceremony needs.

Thank you, Ashley! It was wonderful getting to know you and Curt throughout our sessions. It's clear that the two of truly enjoy being together. Your ceremony had to be the same way. I know you'll have many blessings and many happy days ahead!

Thank you, Kyrie! I was happy to be there for you and John. Your vows to each other were nothing less than stunning, but let's face it, it was your daughter who stole the show! Many blessings to you and your lovely family!

Mark was great to work with! From the initial contact all the way until the wedding, he was easy to get in touch with and receptive to our ideas! We were unable to meet face to face because of our hectic schedules, so we held a skype session instead. Mark was able to get exactly what we wanted our ceremony to be from this session. So many guests commented about how great he was and asked if we knew him prior to the wedding! If you hire Mark, you will not be disappointed!

Thank you very much for this wonderful review, Stephanie! And thank you and Brandon for your kindness and understanding. I couldn't have asked for a more perfect couple. Many blessings and many happy days to you both!

Rev Mark was great! From our initial point of contact he was super responsive to emails and enthusiastic about being part of our special day. He provided us with his short and sweet ceremony script and allowed us to add personal touches and customize some parts that made it uniquely ours. He also ran through it quickly as we were getting ready because my wife was nervous :) We would 100% recommend A Simple Vow for your wedding!

Thanks, Erin! You and Jess are an absolutely delightful couple, so warm and personable. I was honored to be there for you. Many happy days to you both!

He did a fantastic job personalizing our ceremony. I definitely recommend his services!! I unfortunately do not have any photos to share yet!
A Simple Vow responded with the following comments:
Thank you, Rachel! I'm so glad you and Gary got the beautiful (if slightly warm) day that you deserved. I'm also very glad I didn't make eye contact with your Dad. We would all have been a teary mess! Many blessings and many happy days to you!

Mark and Jeanie were amazing throughout our entire process. From the first day we met them we knew they were going to make our wedding day everything we had dreamed of and more. They exceeded our expectations! Our ceremony was personal and everything we wanted. Mark was always open to our emails with questions. We are still getting compliments about how engaged our guests felt during the ceremony. They said they could listen to him talk for hours. Thank you Mark and Jeanie for making our big day everything we had ever dreamed of we appreciate all you have done! Love, The Letos

Yours was a magical wedding day! The rain stopped at just the right time; the sun was golden and bright, and your Reese's Cup unity ceremony (and you and Juls, of course) made everything perfectly sweet. Thank you for allowing us to be a part of it. Many blessings and many peanut butter/chocolate confections to you both!

Mark was amazing! Exactly what we wanted for a ceremony. Very heartfelt but also lightened the mood and made some jokes. You would have thought he had known us for years! Would highly recommend! All our guest also said how nice the ceremony was! Thanks Mark!

It was a true delight to be a part of your wedding day, Alex! You and Paul showed an incredible amount of care in every aspect of your wedding planning. Your marriage is going to be outstanding! Many blessings and many happy days to you both!

Rev Mark was absolutely perfect. He made everyone at our wedding laugh throughout the ceremony so much so that we are still being told how awesome it all was even today. Leading up to the day he was very communicative, helpful, patient and flexible. If you are looking for an officiant, look no further, Rev Mark is the one! :)
A Simple Vow responded with the following comments:
Thanks, Emily! Your little nephew's laughs were the best of all. Right on cue, almost as if I paid him! Amazing things happen when there's just that much love and joy in the room. Many happy days to you and Alex and your wonderful families!
