Mark is the best.
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.Sent on 09/21/2020

Mark is the best!
We loved having Mark be part of our special day. We met with Mark back in late 2019/2020 to talk to him about our expectations for our special day - immediately, he made us feel so comfortable like we've known him for years. We shared what meant most to us and things we wanted to avoid. We were originally supposed to have a big ceremony/reception in November 2020, but had to postpone our plans due to COVID-19. We decided (kind of last minute) to elope this year. When we proposed this new idea to Mark, he jumped to help us get ready! We eloped in WV and Mark went above and beyond to make sure we had all the paperwork handled ahead of time. He was absolutely wonderful, he was thrilled to help make our day so very special. It was a very personal, and surprisingly private, ceremony and Mark did everything to make sure our day was perfect. And it was! We are excited to use him again this November for a one year celebration with our friends and family.Sent on 02/01/2021
A Simple Vow's reply:You and Chris are much appreciated, Jordan! Because of you, I got to experience a beautiful place that I hadn't been to, on a beautiful day with a beautiful couple, and geez could I use the word beautiful more? Possibly. Let's see what November brings!

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!
