When planning a wedding one of the most important things that often does not get the attention it deserves is finding the right officiant. The ceremony is the kick off to what is going to be a magical day. My husband and I had our ceremony at our venue without any religious ties. We are laid back people who try not to take life too seriously and were looking for someone who could match our personalities.Sent on 08/12/2018
We talked to multiple officiant options, prior to talking to Mark. After that conversation we knew that he was our guy. Mark has a heart of gold and his ultimate goal is to make your special day perfect. He can crack a joke while maintaining a tone of seriousness/organization when necessary. He helped me come with ceremony order, overlooked our personal vows and recommended readings for the ceremony. He was able to make our ceremony light hearted enough to avoid too many water works, it was perfect. His smile and personality the day of our event kept us calm during stressful moments leading up to the ceremony and help control nerves during the ceremony.
Following our wedding we had countless complements from our guest about everything and consistently one was how much people enjoyed the ceremony and the officiant. If I had to do it all over again I would pick Mark every time and would recommend him to any future couples who are about to take the plunge.

From our first meeting, we knew that we wanted Mark to marry us!
For our initial meeting, Mark was very flexible and came to our house when it was convenient for us. Mark gave a great first impression; he was polite, personable, warm, and funny. Exactly the personality we wanted to perform our ceremony. He spent a lot of time explaining the ceremony and he took time to answer any questions we had. We knew right from the start that we wanted Mark to perform our ceremony, and we immediately booked him for our date. Throughout the year leading up to the ceremony, Mark kept in touch with me, and answered any questions I had. He also helped me with the readings, music, and worked with me on some special things I wanted to happen during the ceremony. In addition, when we were totally confused about the marriage license process, Mark stepped in and took care of it. Mark was so easy to work with and he kept me calm days before the wedding! The ceremony was beyond my expectations. Everything that Mark had prepared to say was beautiful and sounded like it was specifically written for my husband and I. My guests thought that we knew Mark all of our lives. Weeks later, I still have guests talking about my ceremony! Thank you Mark for all of your help, for performing such a beautiful ceremony, and for giving me a memory that will last forever!Sent on 08/13/2019

Mark was an incredible officiant! He made the process so easy and answered all the questions we had. During the ceremony, he had the perfect balance of being sentimental and serious but also lighthearted and fun, which was exactly what we were looking for! We received so many compliments from our guests about how perfect our ceremony was and specifically how much they enjoyed Mark, so we would highly recommend choosing him for your wedding!Sent on 08/22/2019

If you would love an Officiant who never stops smiling, Mark is your guy! His personality is second to none, as is also his professionalism! You know the infamous question: "Well; How does it feel to be 'MARRIED'??" Well; immediately after your ceremony, with Mark, you will FEEL MARRIED, AND YOU WILL FEEL GREAT!!! /John - Creator of Happy Tears - www.HappyTears.Wedding
