    Thank you Mark!

    Mark Willis was such an awesome addition to our wedding! I grew up Presbyterian in St Louis, and my groom grew up Catholic. Mark worked with us every step of the way to create a ceremony that combined both of our styles and was so flexible when we wanted to add/remove/edit certain parts.
    He really shined at the rehearsal. He made everything so smooth, and has done a million weddings so he just gets it - and is so comfortable walking couples through everything (including how to get your marriage license).
    Our ceremony was PERFECT and that was largely due to Mark!

    Mark was great!

    I found Simple to Elegant via Wedding Wire and they did not disappoint. Mark was great! From the first Zoom call we had with him we felt confident we found the right officiant. He was very patient and helpful when it came to writing our ceremony. We changed our minds a couple of times about what exactly we wanted, but he always sent a new draft of the ceremony with no hesitations. He was prompt and on time. After the ceremony we got numerous compliments about Mark and how he conducted the ceremony. We would highly recommend Mark!

    Mark really did a great job helping us plan our day

    Despite a last minute medical related issue, mark trooped it out to help guide us through our special day. Leading up to the wedding, he was very helpful and communicated very effectively with us about our needs while providing great options for the ceremony for us to consider. We strongly recommend his services!

Rev Tim and his wife were a pleasure to work with. It was a beautiful service, and Tim kept everything well organized even though there was a delay with the musician. I would be more than happy to work with them again!

jw ph{o}to jw ph{o}to Wedding Photographers

As a wedding photographer when it came time for me to get married I knew exactly what I wanted (and didn't) in a lot of respects, but I had no clue when it came to the ceremony. My husband and I met with several officiants and hit it off with Tim right off the bat. He had so much to offer in terms of ideas and options for the flow, tone and readings at the ceremony. Tim has done A LOT of weddings, so he has seen it all, but more importantly, he really picked up on what our style was, what the vision of our day was emerging to be and made relevant suggestions. Tim also has the ability to be professional, while also making your guests laugh and choke up a bit too. I recommend Tim to my brides who are looking for an officiant.
