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!
Thank you for the wonderful review, Tessa and Jake! t was truly a delight to be there for you. You two definitely had my eyes welling up a few times!
Many happy days to you both!
Rev Mark was amazing! He made our ceremony so special and so detailed specifically to us. It was full of heart felt love and humor. We would absolutely recommend him to anyone getting married!! Thanks so much Rev Mark!!!
He did a fantastic job personalizing our ceremony. I definitely recommend his services!! I unfortunately do not have any photos to share yet!
Thank you, Rachel! I'm so glad you and Gary got the beautiful (if slightly warm) day that you deserved. I'm also very glad I didn't make eye contact with your Dad. We would all have been a teary mess! Many blessings and many happy days to you!
Mark is great!! He listens to what you have to say and what you prefer or don’t prefer in your wedding ceremony. I would recommend him to everyone!
Thanks, Emily! You and Don were so easy-going and fun. I also want to say thanks again to Don for the Challenge Coin. It means a lot to me to be given such a thoughtful gift. Many blessings and many happy days to you both!
Mark and Jeanie were amazing throughout our entire process. From the first day we met them we knew they were going to make our wedding day everything we had dreamed of and more. They exceeded our expectations! Our ceremony was personal and everything we wanted. Mark was always open to our emails with questions. We are still getting compliments about how engaged our guests felt during the ceremony. They said they could listen to him talk for hours. Thank you Mark and Jeanie for making our big day everything we had ever dreamed of we appreciate all you have done!
Yours was a magical wedding day! The rain stopped at just the right time; the sun was golden and bright, and your Reese's Cup unity ceremony (and you and Juls, of course) made everything perfectly sweet. Thank you for allowing us to be a part of it. Many blessings and many peanut butter/chocolate confections to you both!
We were very happy with every aspect of your services
Mark was amazing! Exactly what we wanted for a ceremony. Very heartfelt but also lightened the mood and made some jokes. You would have thought he had known us for years! Would highly recommend! All our guest also said how nice the ceremony was! Thanks Mark!
It was a true delight to be a part of your wedding day, Alex! You and Paul showed an incredible amount of care in every aspect of your wedding planning. Your marriage is going to be outstanding! Many blessings and many happy days to you both!
Rev Mark was absolutely perfect. He made everyone at our wedding laugh throughout the ceremony so much so that we are still being told how awesome it all was even today. Leading up to the day he was very communicative, helpful, patient and flexible. If you are looking for an officiant, look no further, Rev Mark is the one! :)
Thanks, Emily! Your little nephew's laughs were the best of all. Right on cue, almost as if I paid him! Amazing things happen when there's just that much love and joy in the room. Many happy days to you and Alex and your wonderful families!
Our experience was excellent! In a nutshell our experience was easy, comfortable, and somebody we can rely on for this situation.
Thank you, Sarah! It was a delight to come out to Ohio to be there for you and Nick! Your families were so sweet and fun to be around. I hope you had a great time in Hawaii! Many blessings to you and yours!
Mark put together the perfect weddding ceremony for Dylan and I. We were pleasantly taken by his personal touches and our families and friends also loved the ceremony. We heard wonderful feedback from everyone. I would recommend Mark and his wife for anyone’s ceremony. They made our day super special!!!!!!
Thanks, Kati & Dylan! I was an absolute pleasure to be there for you. You are such a wonderfully loving couple. I'm so glad the rain held off that day. I'll take full credit for that, of course (cough, cough, ahem)!
Many blessings to you both!
I am so happy we went with Mark! I wasn't comfortable with personal vows, but I wanted our ceremony to be personal, and Mark definitely made that happen! He showed up for our rehearsal and was very patient with the bridal party (they were all from out of town and we hadn't seen each other in a while). We practiced both inside and outside, due to weather. Day of the wedding it thunder stormed and we moved everything inside. It still went off without a hitch. I was crying and laughing through the whole ceremony, and so were all the guests! He completely nailed our personalities. If your looking for someone flexible and personable, then he is your guy! My husband and I were so happy we went with him!
Thank you, Melanie! You and Shane were such fun to work with and your bridal party was great! It was nice to see how well they interacted with each other and adapted to whatever the sky decided to do that day. No rain was going to get that group down! Many blessings and many happy days to you both!
Mark was absolutely wonderful to work with. He did a fabulous job with our wedding and made it very personal for us. All of our guests kept commenting on how nice the service was and how great Mark was. We couldn't have been happier with him!
Thank you, Jennifer! Your family members, especially your kids, are just as kind and considerate as you and Dub. It was wonderful to be there for all of you! BTW, those champagne cake toppers were adorable, though not as adorable as your ring-bearer! Many blessings to you, Dub, and your fantastic family!
Mark was seriously fantastic! He made our ceremony so personalized for the two of us. We loved knowing what the details where before the actual day. All our guests were involved in our ceremony. He made many laugh and cry. Our families want to see him in a church HAHA. Everyone didn’t believe us that we didn’t know him before we found him on the wedding sites. HE made it seem like he knew us FOREVER. Our ceremony was beyond perfect. If we ever renew our vows, Mark will be the guy for sure. We would recommend him to everyone who’s getting married!
Thank you so much, Ashley & Stephen! I am grateful to have been involved at this moment in your lives. I'm holding you to that vow renewal promise!
Mark was simply fantastic. The questionnaire that he provided to start the writing process was easy to understand and allowed him to put a unique flair on our ceremony. His choices of ceremony types allowed for us to pick one that best suited our needs. Most importantly, his delivery of the ceremony was impeccable. We would recommend Mark to anyone getting married in the PGH area.
Thank you, Seth! I truly enjoyed being there for you and Sarah. You two make a wonderful team. Many happy days to you both!
Mark was absolutely fantastic! He makes your ceremony so personalized to the two of you, it’s amazing! Every single one of our guests absolutely loved him and the ceremony! I would recommend him to everyone I know who’s getting married!
Thank you for the wonderful comments, Sarah! It was truly a delight to be there for you and Greg!
Working with Mark was an absolutely wonderful experience. We had an intimate wedding, about 20 people total, and Mark was able to take our sense of humor and perfectly incorporate it into the ceremony. He crafted an absolutely perfect experience for us and captured our vision perfectly. We met via Skype and talked to him about our relationship, our family, how we felt about our wedding, and how we wanted the ceremony to feel. He was open to working with our requests and came up with some spot-on personal anecdotes within the ceremony! Couldn't be more ecstatic about working with A Simple Vow, would recommend it to anyone and everyone!
I thoroughly enjoyed being a part of your day, Katie & John! It may have been Groundhog Day, but I'm confident the two of you got it right the first time.
Many happy days to you both!
Rev. Mark was the officiant for our wedding and he was absolutely wonderful. This was a 2nd wedding for my fiance and I and we wanted a very small intimate wedding with family only. I met with Rev. Mark prior to the wedding to get to know each other a bit and plan the ceremony. He has such a warm personality and so easy to talk to. We had the wedding at Phipps Conservatory and it was beautiful. I would highly recommend Rev. Mark's services. Actually, one of our guests that day asked for his contact information after the wedding because her daughter is getting married this year and she thought he did a great job with our wedding!
Thank you so much, Shelley! It was an absolute pleasure being there for you and Steve!
Thank you so much for making wedding day perfect!!! Rev Mark had me in tears from laughing! The ceremony was exactly what I was looking for and I couldn’t ask for anything else!!! He’s amazing!!!!!
It was truly my pleasure, Alyssa! It was fun just reading through your questionnaires, how could your ceremony be anything but a blast?
Many blessings and many happy days to you and Brad!
Rev Mark was the first and only officiant we met with. When we left the initial meeting, my husband and I couldn’t stop talking about his relatability, humor, and ability to put us at ease during the stressful process. Leading up to the wedding, he was very communicative, helpful, and supportive with choosing ceremony wording and making sure the whole ceremony was exactly what we wanted. He provided many great tools to help him get to know us as a couple and to help us formulate everything we wanted to say with our ceremony. Our guests went on and on about how personal and fun the ceremony was. They were especially impressed with the officiants ability to translate our humor and personalities into a cohesive and touching ceremony. I would so highly recommend A Simple Vow for all of those reasons and more. We are so happy with the way everything went.
Thank you, Sam! It was truly wonderful to work with amazingly creative people such as you and Josh. Many blessings and many happy years to you both!
Having Mark officiate was exactly what we had hoped. Our ceremony felt true to us and I wouldn’t have changed a thing! Thank you so much for making our ceremony perfect!
Thank you, but your vows made the day, Sara! Many blessings and many happy days to you both!
Reverend Mark beyond exceeded our expectations for an officiant on our wedding day. We had numerous people coming up to us after the ceremony telling us that it was the most beautiful ceremony they had seen and praised reverend Mark, even asking where we found him! We cannot say enough about Reverend Mark and would recommend him to everyone!
Rev Mark is phenomenal. Let me start by saying that. To echo what others have said before, if you are looking for an officiant, this is the person you want. My husband and I received countless compliments on how personal and moving our ceremony was. Rev Mark worked with us to make it exactly what we wanted. He provided sample ceremonies and tons of readings for us to review and build from. We didn't know what to expect when we decided to work with an officiant and it was truly better than we could ever imagine. My husband actually said the ceremony was his favorite part of the day. HOW OFTEN DO YOU HEAR PEOPLE SAY THAT? Book him and I promise you will not regret it.
Thank you, Alyssa! Jeanie and I loved being a part of your day. Many blessings and many happy days to you and Arch!
I'm so glad we chose Mark to officiate our wedding! He was professional and very respectful of our wants and needs! He arrived on time and met all my expectations! We met with him several weeks prior to discuss the style of wedding we were planning, and he offered us plenty of ceremony options. He even offered to help us write our own vows! My favorite part of Mark's service was the fact that that he added a touch of humor to our ceremony. I hate how sometimes a wedding can feel so stuffy and formal. Mark made sure our wedding was fun! He made everyone so comfortable with his very "down to earth" personality, and he tossed a couple jokes in to get our crowd laughing and enjoying the moment. Mark helped us to really create a very special day that we will cherish forever!
Rev. Mark was fantastic! We told him what we wanted and he definitely delivered. Thank you so much for helping make our special day everything we wanted it to be and more.
And thank you! It truly was my pleasure, Laura!
Rev. Mark was so great to work with. He has a great personality and is so easy to talk to. Mark really got to know us the months leading up to our wedding, and used our stories in the ceremony. It was nice to be able to customize the ceremony , and Mark really helped us with the outline. He was also very helpful at the rehearsal , and his wife was so helpful the day of the wedding with the order and timing of the procession. What Mark wrote for our ceremony was personal and also had just the right amount of humor to keep it from being boring. ALL of our guests have complimented Rev. Mark and told us how much they enjoyed the ceremony.
Thank you, Stevie! It was an absolute pleasure getting to know you, Mike and your pups.
