One of the best parts of our wedding!
We feel like we won the lottery with Mark. You definitely want him to be a part of your day. He officiated our December 2018 wedding and was absolutely amazing. So many people commented on how meaningful, personal, and fun our ceremony was! A few even thought he was a close friend that we asked to officiate for us (although we didn’t know him before we started wedding planning, we definitely felt like friends by the end). We decided to do pre-marriage sessions with him and are very glad we did. Not only did it help my husband and I start conversations, it was just a great way to get to know Mark and for him to know us. During the actual planning of our ceremony, we had ideas of what we wanted it to look like, but weren’t sure how to piece it all together. Mark did an excellent job of guiding us through that process. He is thorough and knowledgeable. He does this because he loves it. He was great help in finding the right religious/spiritual balance. I just can’t recommend him enoughSent on 01/14/2019

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!
