Tim and Jan were fantastic to work with. They were completely open to our ideas and our ceremony was exactly how we'd imagined. They were always on time and kept everyone on track at the rehearsal. Jan was a HUGE help getting everything organized the day of our wedding too. She helped organize our bridal party for the ceremony, worked with the DJ to make sure everyone entered at the correct time, and even made sure our personal items were in a safe place during all of the chaos.Sent on 10/13/2015
We recommend Simple to Elegant Weddings without a doubt!

Wonderful service and value
We worked with Rev. Mark Willis for our June 8th wedding. He made customizing our ceremony so easy and he respected our wishes. He made us feel comfortable during the rehearsal and wedding. Even though we had only met him a few times; he felt like a trusted friend/advisor. Would recommend to anyone!Sent on 07/01/2019

From the moment we met Doug Willis we knew we had selected the right minister for us. He had a number of ceremonies to select from. Plus he encouraged us to customize a ceremony as much as we wanted. As it turned out we made only a couple of changes to the beautiful ceremony Doug had written. We had so many guests tell us how much they liked our ceremony and minister.Sent on 05/12/2019

Just What We Wanted
My husband and I are not very active with organized religion and were having trouble finding an officiant since we didn't have a church. Mark Willis at Simple2Elegant Weddings really made us feel as if he had known us from the start and was more than happy to shape our ceremony to our wants and needs. Can't give more of a recommendation for couples that are looking for a ceremony that fits you.Sent on 04/10/2019

Easy Custom-made Ceremony
We chose Mark Willis to officiate our wedding because he was genuine and down-to-earth and made us feel comfortable right away. Mark allowed us to completely customize our wedding ceremony and provided some great suggestions we hadn't even heard of!Sent on 10/26/2018
Mark was quick to respond via email and made sure to do one last check in before the day of our wedding to ensure everything was ready to go.
The day of our wedding, Mark was on top of it. He was quick, professional, supportive and encouraging. He did a wonderful job leading our ceremony. Definitely recommended!

Gabe Combs officiated our wedding and we truly couldn't have found someone who better fit our style! From the moment we met him, Gabe was personable, funny, kind and professional. He asked many questions to get to know us and gave us so many options to customize the ceremony! Our bridal party and family loved him, he made the rehearsal a breeze! The ceremony was to the point but perfectly paced. I'm so grateful for Gabe making it the ceremony of our dreams!Sent on 08/09/2018

My husband and I decided on hiring Rev. Mark Willis to officiate our wedding. We were so pleased with our decision. We set up several meetings before our big day as well as exchanged numerous emails with him and he always responded right away. The first time we met with him, we knew he would be a perfect fit for us! Any questions we had he always had an answer for us. I didn't hire a wedding coordinator, so Mark ran the show for the rehearsal and day of wedding ceremony. He knew exactly what we wanted and executed with such ease. We received several compliments from guests at our wedding on how much they enjoyed Mark and the words he spoke. He truly made our day so very special! I absolutely recommend hiring Rev. Mark Willis!Sent on 05/30/2018

Mark did a fantastic job of working with my wife and I to create a personal wedding ceremony that both of us and our friends and family really enjoyed. He was quick to respond to all e-mails and answer any questions that we had. He met with us in person on multiple occasions, sent us an outline to use for our wedding program and was gracious enough to stick around for our dinner service to give a blessing. He was a treat to work with through the entire planning process as well as the rehearsal and actually wedding day. I would absolutely recommend Mark to anyone looking for a minister!Sent on 05/30/2018

My husband found Mark and I’m very grateful that he did. Mark was very helpful in the ceremony planning process and was open to our specific needs to not cater to one specific denomination. We wrote our own vows, but Mark was able to provide a lot of content that we could choose from to craft our own unique ceremony. During the ceremony rehearsal, Mark was focused and made sure to provide directions to the wedding party to help provide a seamless ceremony on the day-of. During our wedding ceremony, Mark was able to keep me calm as I completely blanked on one of my vows. He quickly repeated it for me as if we rehearsed this little hiccup. I would recommend Mark time and time again. Thank you Mark for being a part of our special day!Sent on 05/09/2018

Couldn't have been happier!
Gabe Combs was absolutely awesome! He's so easy going and flexible. This review was a long time coming as he actually married us back in January of 2018 - I've just been so busy but I've kept this in the back of my mind to do because he definitely deserves 5 stars.Sent on 02/07/2019
My husband and I are easy going so it was priority for us to find an officiant that would just listen to us and offer advice based on what he gathered from our meeting - but not be pushy. As someone who wanted less stress and more cake on my wedding day, I appreciated that approach so much. Gabe is very professional and really understood that we wanted our ceremony to be sweet and quick - but mostly quick as it was cold and snowy.
If you want someone who truly takes the time to mold their officiating to you (and is also willing to stand in the snow for the ceremony and come out on cold icy days for your rehearsal with a smile) - then I full-heartedly recommend Gabe Combs !

We had Rev. Gabe Combs as a part of our special day. My husband and I planned a wedding in less than three months. Rev. Gabe Combs met with us right away. On our first meeting, my husband and I knew he would be perfect! He knew exactly what he was talking about and helped ease my wedding day worries about how things would run, especially with our short amount of time. He suggested a wine box ceremony that was perfect for us. He answered all my emails right away to help with any questions I had. Our ceremony ran so smoothly. I got so many compliments about the ceremony. He kept it traditional and even added some humor. I was crying and laughing during the whole ceremony. I couldn’t have asked for a better officiant for our special day!Sent on 01/16/2018

Rev. Gabe Combs presided over a beautiful wedding ceremony that we will treasure forever. It was exactly what we were hoping for, intimate and and meaningful. We received many compliments from our guests about Gabe. He was a pleasure to work with throughout the process and we would highly recommend him to others who are looking for a personalized experience.Sent on 01/16/2018

We had Rev Tim Brooks officiate our wedding and what an amazing choice! Tim and his wife, Jan, met with us as often as we needed and hashed out all the details of the ceremony, including names of all family members and wedding party, wedding colors, music timing, etc. We opted for a civil, secular ceremony and Tim was happy to oblige. We weren't exactly sure what we wanted to include, but Tim provided us with numerous examples of civil ceremonies, and we were able to mix and match to formulate a ceremony perfect for us. Tim is an excellent speaker, he projects well into a large room, and his speaking style is impeccable. Many of our guests later commented on how impressed they were with the officiant. Tim's wife, Jan was such a great help during the planning process and the day of the event. She is super detail-oriented and she did all the behind-the-scenes work to ensure the wedding party looked fantastic before walking down the aisle. She straightened ties, ensured necklaces were in the right place, fixed hair, and sent everyone down the aisle at the right time. Tim and Jan truly go above and beyond to make your day special and perfect, and they make quite the team! The ceremony went off without a hitch thanks in large part to Tim and Jan. If you're looking for an easy-to-work-with, experienced, and genuinely kind officiant, look no further than Rev Tim! My husband and I had an incredible experience working with these two. I would recommend Tim to anyone and everyone needing an officiant!Sent on 11/13/2017

Mark did a wonderful job, and was able to craft the ceremony we wanted. Even when he was on vacation, he still responded to let us know. He was responsive and took the time to get to know Carrie and I.Sent on 11/20/2017

Rev Gabe Combs was the best officiant we could have asked for. We are pretty laidback people and Gabe was an excellent fit for our style. We did premarital counseling with him as part of our work together and he had some excellent advice and a great ear. He was wonderful at our rehearsal and wedding. Many of our guests paid him compliments about his presentation and affability. We even ran into him at a Christmas event where he was performing and he was so glad to see us!Sent on 01/18/2018

Mark was wonderful! He sent us sample reading and worked with us to combine pieces from them all into one personal reading for our special day. He was on time and always responded in a timely manner. Al our guests talked about how great of a job he did. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for an officiant for their wedding day! He helped make our day stress and worry free. I was confident going into our wedding that he would do a fantastic job, and he did!Sent on 02/20/2018

My fiance and I had our original wedding officiant fall through a few months before our wedding. We found Mark Willis, online through reviews. He was very professional, organized, and had a lot of experience with officiating weddings. He reassured us that he had never missed a wedding he agreed to officiate. He helped us get started right away with determining what type of ceremony we were looking for and really worked to make it our own. He also gave us good tips on things that he had seen go well and how to get our marriage license. The wedding ceremony was perfect! It was everything we were looking for. Mark was great to work with and I highly recommend him to future couples!Sent on 09/26/2017

Mark was great!! We had a small wedding (although we would have used him for a large wedding also!). He met with us to understand what we were after, and delivered just what we hoped for! He was quick to respond, easy to work with, and truly completed our day. I would highly recommend Mark to anyone!Sent on 09/25/2017

My husband and I cannot say enough positive things about Tim, and his wife Jan. Tim is a wonderful officiant and really made our ceremony special. We enjoyed meeting with Tim and Jan at the initial meeting and knew right away we wanted Tim to officiate our wedding. He is very knowledgeable about all types of wedding ceremonies and allowed us to make ours exactly how we wanted it. He is very personable and created such a positive and engaging ceremony. His wife Jan, is so sweet and helped with the planning and making sure our rehearsal and ceremony went on without a hitch!Sent on 09/19/2017
Tim was very attentive and responded to all of our emails quickly.
We definitely recommend this awesome Duo and would choose them again in a heartbeat!

Gabe was our officiate for our wedding and he was nothing but amazing! He helped us keep the conditional vibe we were wanting, dress appropriate and helped us put together the most perfect ceremony! He even got us to all laugh. My guest keep raving on how well he did as well. I think if your guest notice how well he did then he most be really good because guest usually just care about the party afterwards. I highly highly recommend Gabe Combs from Simple to Elegant Weddings!Sent on 08/21/2017
