  • Aloha… This is to commend Rev Mark and Carrie Kurnow for their efforts to assist us in getting married in March. This was in the early part of all the shutdowns due to the pandemic, and while we had been thinking of getting married for some time, it was the pandemic that pushed the button. We felt being married would be helpful if one of us was diagnosed with Covid; at least the other would be able to make medical decisions if necessary. Once the decision was made, we wanted to be married ASAP! Before City Hall shut down or some other reason made it impossible. Carrie and Mark were very helpful, coordinating all the pieces we could do online, choosing a beautiful beach site at Ko Olina, and expediting the process. They provided an assortment of sample ceremonies for us to choose from. Mark conducted a nice ceremony; there were just on three of us on the beach. Then he became the photographer, taking pix of us for our memory books. We would highly recommend Mark and Carrie ... Read more

  • We had a beach-side elopement at Papailoa Beach at sunrise. I wish there was an option to add photos to this review, it was such a beautiful experience. This was by far so much more spiritual and romantic than a big expensive wedding. He added perfect amount Hawaiian tough to our ceremony. I would highly recommend Mark Kurnow and the Simply Eloped team, they are amazing and took the stress out of everything and the price was amazing as well. Words cannot express how perfect and intimate everything was.

  • Mark and Carrie were extremely accommodating helping us plan our elopement once we decided to cancel our wedding ceremony on the mainland due to Covid. They walked us through how to easily apply for our marriage application, offered suggestions for beautiful sunset location, and were flexible with the date and time with our photographer. The ceremony was perfect. Mark incorporated everything we had discussed into our ceremony along with some Hawaiian culture making it a very special and intimate ceremony. We will always be grateful to Mark for making it such a wonderful moment in our lives even though our loved ones couldn't be with us. Mahalo!

  • Mark is without doubt the most amazing wedding celebrant in Hawaii. Exceeded our expectations in every way and Carrie (Mark's wife) so helpful in coordinating everything. Words simply do not adequately describe how impressed we are with the services provided.

  • My husband and I are so happy we chose Mark as our officiant. Mark and his wife, Carrie, are the ultimate team. We met with them during our initial meeting, and Carrie was so great at communicating with us leading up to our big day! They were both so helpful and experienced! Mark was able to tailor everything to just how we wanted our ceremony to be. It was crucial that we had Mark, because his calming nature helped put as at ease during the ceremony. Mark guided us through the ceremony so we didn't have to memorize anything or worry. Everything turned out perfectly and we couldn't be happier!

  • I am so thankful for Mark and his wonderful wife for helping us out on such late notice and during uncertain times. We got married during a pandemic in the middle of May 2020...something most couples can’t say. As we didn’t have much of an idea of what to expect both Mark and his wife helped us pick out a location, helped and gave suggestions on the ceremony/vows and even the during unplanned forgetting of the grooms ring Mark allowed us to us his ring for the ceremony. Mark was nothing but professional, understanding, calming and friendly. We will be calling him again when we go to celebrate with our family and friends in 2021. Thank you Mark once again for everything.

  • I tried to book with Rev Mark but sadly he was already booked for my date and time. But even with not being able to officiate my wedding, that didn’t stop Rev Mark and Carrie from trying to help with our search. They called everyone they could think of that would be perfect to officiate our wedding, they made sure that it was within our budget and that would be able to do our request for a non religious ceremony. In just mins, they contacted me again and gave me the info for our wedding officiant. So grateful for Mark and Carrie, such nice people!

  • Rev. Mark and Carrie are absolutely the best! Without their help, guidance, and professional experience, we would be so lost. We had planned for a bigger wedding earlier this year but due to COVID - 19 we cancelled at the last min and did an intimate ceremony with just our family. We were definitely stressed with everything shutting down due to COVID - 19 right before our wedding date. However, having Rev. Mark and Carrie there to talk to us and support us in any decision we decided was such a relief and we really appreciated that during these uncertain times. During the planning process, they made everything seem so easy and not as complicated. Rev. Mark was flexible with his ceremony script and allowed us to make any changes to adjust to our preferences. On the day of, everything went smoothly and stress-free! Although it wasn't what we had planned due to COVID - 19, we were extremely happy with our decision, and it was perfect in every way it turned out to be. Thank you R... Read more

  • Mark officiated our wedding on 02/20/2020 and we are grateful for his blessings. He shared good advices for true love and kindness. Our ceremony leaned more on the religious aspect and he captured everything we have hoped to hear. The process of booking Mark was also flawless, with the help of his wife, Carrie, who were so kind to offer help in my wedding preparation. Thank you so much Mark and Carrie, for being a part of our wedding. God bless.

  • Both Carrie and Mark were really great to work with. Carrie offered lots of great advice during the planning process. Both were very flexible with our changes due to Covid and helped us change locations by giving suggestions and obtaining the permit for the new location. We could not be more happier with Mark's vows and overall wonderful performance on our wedding day.
