Mark is the best
Mark had some of the best reviews around, so we honestly didn't look anywhere else. We're not local to Pittsburgh, but we were married there, so it was nice Mark made himself available to video chat so we could "meet" and discuss our wedding and our needs with him without having to take a separate trip out.Sent on 06/04/2019
Mark takes the standard pre-wedding ceremony questionnaire and actually makes it fun. He incorporated all the little things about our love story into our ceremony that made it perfectly "us"... and he kept it short and sweet just like we asked. He also kindly went with the flow when my dad walked away before he could ask who gives the bride so nobody knew anything was amiss. He was also so gracious as we, the giddy almost-weds, whispered to each other over his first few sentences. (Sorry Mark!)
Don't hesitate -- just book Mark.

I have now photographed two weddings with ceremonies performed by A Simple Vow. They were both lovely personalized services and I found the officiant to be friendly, professional and a pleasure to listen to. I will be seeking out their assistance when my daughter plans her own wedding next year! Can't wait to work with them again.
Based on the many glowing reviews of A Simple Vow, we would welcome them as part of the couples we serve ceremony!
Mark does a fantastic job in creating personal and unique ceremonies. I have worked with Mark over the years and as a entertainment director, I am always happy to work with him and you will be too!
