  • As a wedding photographer, I don't actually remember a ton of officiants. But Mark stuck out the first time I worked with him in 2019, just a sweet and gentle dude. So it was a joy to see him again at a recent elopement (It was just the couple, me, Mark, and two friends of the bride. It was an honor to be a part of such an exclusive crowd.

  • We loved having Mark as our officant for my husband, Kaitland and I's wedding on August 21, 2020 that we booked him for next year for our vow renewal! He incorporated his personality into each word with some seriousness as well as some hilarious moments mixed into our ceremony. Our guests loved him and couldn't stop talking about him. Our guests, my wife and myself look forward to working with him again. I would 100% recommend to a friend and someone that I just met that's planning a wedding.

    Thanks, Tyler! It was such a joy to work with you and Kaitland this year. I know next year will be even better!

  • What a guy! Our wedding had changed so many times (venue, time, size of wedding etc) due to the pandemic and Mark just rolled with all of it. He added zero stress and just let us know he would be there for us. He helped make our elopement so easy, carefree and fun! Sweet ceremony with just the right amount of pizzazz. THANK YOU MARK!!!

    responded with the following comments.

    What can I say, Carly? "Pizzazz" is my Italian grandmother's middle name. You and Alex made things easy on all of us. I couldn't have asked for a better couple to set the tone of how I should deal with a pandemic wedding. Your no-fuss-go-with-the-flow attitude was wonderful and refreshing. Btw, I'm still jealous of that flamingo tie Alex wore. Best if luck and many happy days to you both!

  • We cannot thank Rev. Mark enough! Our ceremony was absolutely beautiful and perfect. It was 1000000% our favorite part of our whole wedding weekend. Not only did he do our ceremony but he also came to our venue the Friday before to run rehearsal. I checked in with him a million times with questions and pandemic concerns, and he was always quick to respond and more than willing to be flexible if anything needed to change with our plan. Rev. Mark is such an amazing person and officiant and it showed during our ceremony how much he cares about his work. We got so many compliments from guests on how much they loved the ceremony. He made a point to really get to know my husband and I and made our ceremony so unique and personalized. Oh, and he’s REALLY funny! You will not regret working with him!

    Thanks, Kimberly! Planning a wedding during a "normal" time can be stressful. I can't imagine what it's like to be a couple planning a wedding during a pandemic! You, Cody, your families, and your bridal party were delightful. And your flower unity ceremony came out gorgeous (and a little more teary-eyed than expected!) It was truly a pleasure to be there with you!

  • Mark has the most wonderful personality! He got to know us pretty well and was very flexible and responsive. We had the most amazing ceremony, a little non traditional and he totally embraced it and made it truly special. We received so many compliments about our service!

    It was an absolute pleasure getting to know you and Mike, Alicia! You too are off to a great start. Thanks for letting me be there for you and for bearing with me each time I mispronounced your name!

  • Mark really made our wedding ceremony incredibly special. He made sure to understand all of our preferences and customize our ceremony to really represent us. His words brought everyone to tears and made us all laugh. He was funny without being over the top and sentimental without being cheesy. I truly couldn't have asked for a more perfect ceremony.

    responded with the following comments.

    You and Timothy gave me the best material, Kaelyn! How could I have made your ceremony anything less? I'm grateful to have been a part of your day. Thank you!

  • A Simple Vow, and Mark in particular, helped make our wedding day absolutely amazing! Even during these weird times, Mark helped make everything flow smoothly and he worked with us to make sure the officiating was exactly as we had imagined it. He was funny, sincere, and extremely professional, as well as completely accommodating to some of our 'stranger' requests (The first words out of his mouth were the beginning of the wedding ceremony scene from 'The Princess Bride'). You would be a fool to look anywhere else, because A Simple Vow is your best bet for making sure your officiating is exactly what you want.

  • We were so impressed. This was a very-last-minute, unprepared wedding. (Our original plans were ruined by covid). I reached out to Rev Mark when our original officiant was unable to help. He stepped up to the challenge like he knew us for years. Very little planning and attention on my part (I had work stuff going on). But he handled it and still made it very personal. Our family raved about how funny he was…which is exactly what we wanted. Worth every penny! Especially since his rates were by far better than others I had found who I know wouldn’t have been half as good! He should have been our plan A!

    Thank you for this wonderful review, Jamie! To be fair, you and Nick picked the perfect spot at Moraine, you provided me with great material, and you both are caring and thoughtful. You and Nick made the absolute best of the circumstances that were sent your way. I know the two of you will do the same with your marriage. Best of luck and many happy days!

  • Mark really did an outstand job! He kept it personal, worked to incorporate any silly personal touches we wanted in the ceremony, was able to hit the funny bone all while still being able to bring it back to the heart. His wife was also a great help to keep the ceremony in line, and was a wonderful coordinator. I would go back to mark again if I ever needed a second wedding (knock on wood).

    It was a joy to be there with you and Aaron! The answers you gave on your questionnaires were fantastic. I had no choice but to make your ceremony as heart-felt and fun as the two of you! Instead of a second wedding, how about a 5-year vow renewal? lol

  • Mark is so personable. We had covid derail our plans but it gave us more time with Mark. I believe he said he would do our ceremony "in a spacesuit" if needed. All our guest raved about our ceremony!!!! Perfect blend of funny and heartfelt.

  • ev. Mark was incredible! I highly recommend booking him now for your wedding ceremony! Our large wedding ceremony and reception had to be postponed due to Covid-19, and Rev. Mark was supportive and responsive throughout the whole process. He officiated a small ceremony for us with just my parents in attendance. At our request, he performed a personal/non-religious ceremony. The ceremony was so personal and really spoke to who we are as a couple. We streamed the ceremony live and he was able to modify it to recognize the people watching from home. We had many comments after the ceremony asking if he was a family friend because of how many specific details he included about our relationship. He blends the serious/romantic with humor beautifully. We plan to have him complete a vow renewal ceremony with us next year when our whole guest list can be in attendance. Mark, Thank you so much for making our dream day still happen and being so flexible with the rapidly changing circumstances!... Read more

  • I knew before even meeting with Rev Mark I was going to hire him, he was so kind and personable. When we met with him he really made us feel even more excited to get married then we were. I emailed about a month or so before our wedding about writing my own vows and then I chickened out and decided not to read them aloud, Mark made it work with the ceremony he written and used all of it. He truly went above and beyond my expectations. I wish I could relive our day over and over again. The ceremony was hands down the best part of my wedding. All of my guest agreed and enjoyed it! Now let’s talk about Jeanie! Rev Marks wonderful wife! She is a true champion. I had no clue what to do and no direction whatsoever. She really pulled everything together for me I’d give her 5 stars of her own if I could! She helped make sure everything went so smoothly for us. I really can’t think her enough for her help!
