Need an officiant? Pastor Mark is your guy!

My husband and I contacted Pastor Mark Willis a month before our wedding, still in search for someone to officiate a non-religious ceremony for us. Mark sent us a response the same day we inquired his services, and three days later we were sitting down with him discussing the ceremony! We were surprised to learn that Mark has done over 400 weddings. From simple to extravagant, short to long, religious to non-religious... he's seen them all! He guided us through the whole thing-- all we had to do was tell him our vision and what we wanted. His transparency was refreshing, and the contract and pricing were laid out very clearly. After paying a deposit (half of the officiant fee), Mark worked with us in creating our perfect ceremony. He then coordinated and led the rehearsal a day before the wedding. His professionalism was undeniable and we saw that in so many ways, especially when it came time for him to perform the ceremony. He arrived early, coordinated with our DJs, and knew exactly what to do. It was a beautiful ceremony and after wrapping it up, he ensured the wedding license got all the correct signatures. He took care of mailing the license to the state too, and we got it back within two weeks. We felt so well taken care of by Mark, and all of our worries were immediately put at ease by him. Thank you for everything you did to make our wedding such a special day for us! - The Moores

Summer Wedding 2023

Mark was amazing! He was very responsive, patient, kind, showed up on time and was better than we could have imagined. We got so many compliments on how well he did officiating and how people actually wanted to listen to him speak, the comment my husbands aunt gave was “I actually remember all he said! Where did you find him? Can he officiate all future weddings in the family?”

Highly recommend Mark Willis!

On June 17th, 2023 Reverend Mark Willis officiated our wedding in Lees Summit, MO. Mark is a wonderful speaker, very professional, and is passionate about what he does. We appreciate his assistance in ensuring our ceremony ran smoothly. Mark helped my husband and I create a ceremony that was unique to us. If you are looking for an experienced officiant for your wedding, I whole-heartedly recommend Reverend Mark Willis with Simple2Elegant Weddings!

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.
