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 absolutely AMAZING. He is so down-to-earth and easy to talk to. My husband and I loved our ceremony and we received purely positive feedback from our guests. Our favorite includes someone asking "he's a family friend, right?" because our ceremony was so personalized, they thought we had known him for years! His ability to incorporate humorous and intimate components from our questionnaires into our ceremony made an extremely personalized service that allowed moments of laughter to break up our happy tears. We would totally recommend A Simple Vow. Could not have asked for a more perfect ceremony and experience working with Mark!Sent on 04/04/2018

Mark was simply amazing. Right from the very first moment my husband and I met him. He was so pleasant, responsive, easy to work with, reliable and he made our ceremony so special. He takes the time to get to know his clients. He genuinely cares. I can’t say enough great things about him.

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!
