Mark Willis was our Officiant for our wedding on 7/17/2021. We found him on wedding wire while looking for an Officiant. We interviewed both Mark and another Officiant via zoom. We were very impressed with the thoroughness of Mark's questions that when we got off our other zoom call immediately called Mark back to hire him for our wedding. Mark gave us some ideas for the service and vows based on the service we wanted and emailed them to us. My fiance and I merged ideas together and sent them back to Mark. He worked his magic and then sent us the first draft with other questions. We then sent him the information back and we had our final email for approval. Mark was very kind, thoughtful
& patient during our process as we had a death in our family during our planning.... he offered assistance to us and let us know and feel like we had plenty of time to get all the details worked out. Mark was very patient as the night of rehearsal got started late because we lost our dog 😔 We had 2 great run throughs and the next was wedding day 😊
Mark was on time and hot hooked up with our DJ for his mike and it was off to the races. We were very happy with the way our wedding turned out.
Thank you so much for being a part of our day. We included photos from guests that included Mark as our professional ones are not back yet. We highly recommend Mark Willis and his Officiant services.

Simple and Elegant
We talked to a couple different officiant companies and they were all nice, but as soon as we got off the phone with Mark from Simple to Elegant, we knew we had found the right one. He was so easy to talk to on the initial call and made us feel at ease. During the process to put our ceremony together Mark started us off with a few different options and then after a couple back and forth's we all settled on our perfect ceremony. On the day of the wedding Mark showed up exactly when he said he would, walked us through the process real quick and then delivered a perfect ceremony, even with a bird going headfirst into a window right next to the alter. We highly recommend Mark from the Simple to Elegant team and can't say thank you enough for marrying us.Sent on 07/12/2021

Mark Willis was great!
Mark made our ceremony experience an enjoyable one from start to finish. Neither of us had any idea of what we wanted and Mark was patient and extremely helpful. He responded to us quickly, answered every question, and addressed every concern. He was professional but made it feel personal all at the same time. He was very flexible with us and everyone at the ceremony enjoyed our vows immensely. Thank you Mark for helping us make our day extra special. We will definitely recommend him to anyone that asks!Sent on 06/03/2021

Mark Willis officiated our wedding this past October 2020 and he did a wonderful job. We originally met with him at a coffee shop months before the wedding, he then sent us a number of script/reading ideas, and from there we worked together to create a personalized ceremony based on our mutual ideas. He has a great voice and presence, an easygoing personality, and responds promptly to emails. My husband and I couldn't have asked for a better experience and recommend him very highly.Sent on 10/26/2020

The Perfect Ceremony
Mark did a phenomenal job with our ceremony & big day from start to finish. He was very responsible, flexible, professional, and go with the flow. He was honestly our very favorite vendor choice for the day.
He helped us create a very personalized wedding ceremony and put us at ease on our rehearsal night and wedding day. His voice carried wonderfully and we have received multiple compliments on our ceremony since the wedding.
We HIGHLY recommend Mark for any wedding, we couldn’t imagine having chosen anyone else to marry us! Not to mention he sent off our license promptly and we received the official license in the mail shortly after the honeymoon so I could go ahead and start getting my name changed 🎉
THANK YOU MARK! 👏🏼Sent on 05/09/2021

Mark is the BEST
We chose Mark Willis to be our officiant on our wedding day. Not only is Mark a caring, nice man with great ideas he is also very flexible. He met and talked with us whenever we needed him. When we felt stressed out about the ceremony, he really calmed our nerves and had an idea for everything. Mark is seriously the BEST! My best friend who happens to have down syndrome was part of our wedding and Mark worked very well with him. He really knows what he is doing and genuinely cares so much about his couples. You don't need anyone else but him! 10/10Sent on 10/09/2019

Mark is such a great officiant
Mark was our officiant and he was very accomodating, friendly and professional. He made us very comfortable when we met, and during the ceremony. The text he provided for our wedding was truly beautiful and personal, and our guests commented that it was one of the best ceremonies they had attended! I definitely recommend him.Sent on 11/08/2020

Mark Willis is SUPERB!
We met with Mark a few times and 'told our story' over breakfast. We at first wanted our ceremony to be fun and quirky, but after thinking about it, went with a more traditional ceremony. Mark was so flexible and accommodating throughout the entire process. He was so professional and kind to everyone involved and helped make our day spectacular. We can't thank him enough. He even wore red to show his Chiefs spirit for our Superbowl wedding. Thank you again Mark. You're the best.Sent on 02/14/2020

If you are looking for an officiant look no further!
My husband and I got married September 29th 2019 and we had the pleasure to have Mark Willis as our officiant. He was extremely helpful with the whole process and fast to respond back to any email.

If you are looking for an officiant, BOOK Rev Mark Willis. From the initial process to the end, he was fantastic. He was easy to get a hold of via email and responded quickly. He showed up early to rehearsal and ceremony. I honestly had no complaints. He gave us samples for the ceremony and made adjustments to fit our needs. He did a fantastic job during the ceremony. Thank you so much.Sent on 10/20/2019

Personalized, Professional, and Personable!
Working with Rev. Mark Willis from Simple to Elegant Weddings was an absolute joy! We do not belong to a church in the area, and we were worried about finding a reverend who would mesh well with our personalities and wedding style. We met with Mark over coffee and knew right away he was the one! He has such a warm, genuine personality, and he worked closely with us to develop a personalized wedding service. Mark is professional and experienced, and he made us feel comfortable and relaxed from the rehearsal to the ceremony. Even during the ceremony when we became emotional, Mark calmly helped keep us on track. We feel so blessed we found Mark, and we are so happy he was such an integral part of our big day!

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

Made the wedding of our dreams!
Mark Willis officiated our wedding on May 1, 2021. We had a short ceremony, but Mark made it feel so special and personalized. He worked with us and communicated constantly, making sure we were happy with the passages and scripture we chose, and adapting to our last minute changes. Very professional, very personal, couldn’t imagine anyone else performing our ceremony!
Was a great small wedding that Mark made feel like a large event!Sent on 05/13/2021
