    Our Dream Ceremony Delivered

    We feel beyond lucky that Mark was available to perform our ceremony. We knew we wanted our wedding to be fun, intimate & non-generic. From the moment we met to make sure the chemistry was a fit, we knew he would be able to deliver our dream ceremony. He took the time not only to get to know us as a couple but also to really learn our story. When we told him we were having a surprise wedding, he was immediately on board, He was able to provide any guidance we wanted as he had done surprise weddings in the past.

    We were beyond thrilled with our ceremony & wish more couples realized that having a personal unique ceremony is an option. We laughed, we cried, he covered all the emotions. He is a natural public speaker and truly talented at what he does. We couldn’t have asked for a more perfect day. Our friends & family raved about the event & the ceremony. People asked us how long we had known him as they thought he must have been a friend. One of our guests even stated it was the best wedding she had ever been to (don’t tell her husband!).

    He was worth every penny as he definitely made our special day even more fantastic than we could have imagined.

    AMAZING experience!

    Mark was absolutely incredible to work with! Our ceremony was so personalized to our story and we loved every minute of it! We all laughed and cried and laughed even more - we even had guests come up to us after to tell us how amazing our officiant was and wondered if he was actually a friend of ours! Words can't express how special he helped make our day! Thanks so much!

    Hurry up and book Mark for your wedding!

    If I could add a 6th, 7th or 100th star I would! Like many, we had to cancel our wedding due to Covid. Six weeks ago, we decided we couldn't wait and planned a spontaneous wedding for Thanksgiving weekend. I honestly wasn't sure if we needed the extra services that Mark offered, but I can say now with 1000% certainty, we COULD NOT have done this without him. Not only that, but the way he told our story made our wedding one that people will remember for a long time. We were told that our ceremony was the best people had been too (and it wasn't because of us, it was because of Mark). If you haven't booked him yet, what the heck are you waiting for!?!

    Our wedding was perfect, but my favorite part was our ceremony

    I dont even know where to begin honestly ! If I could give more than 5 stars we would! We planned our wedding last year before the pandemic and the date happened to fall at the worst time during the restrictions....Mark remained consistently patient and helpful the whole time! We were finally able to pull off a small wedding ( with 24 hours notice of the loosened restrictions)
    I can honestly say Mark was the BEST part of the entire wedding!!! EVERYONE loved our service! So many people came to.me and said they usually dread the service and yet they laughed through most of ours ( and yet there were tears too)....Everyone commented on Mark, how funny and personable he was ! He told our story in such a way that we couldn't stop laughing ....and we knew the story to begin with! He made me laugh ...and then tear up minutes later....he is a gifted speaker to say the least not to mention an overall great person to deal with. Most of our guests thought he was a close personal friend of ours!!To say that I would highly recommend him is a gross understatement....he is worth twice the price ( and I'm not joking!) He is an entertainer that puts you in the middle of the spot light....magical...that's the best way I can describe it! Thank you Mark for making our special day the fairytale wedding I envisioned it to be...YOU ARE THE BEST!!

    If you are looking for the best officiant in New Brunswick, look no further!

    My husband and I can't say enough good things about Mark! Prior to the ceremony he was incredibly easy to work with, very communicative and left no stone unturned. Our ceremony was perfect. The effort Mark puts into personalizing your wedding is well worth every penny. Our guests raved about it all night. We wanted a fun 'unboring' ceremony that celebrated our relationship - and that is exactly what we got! If you are looking for the best officiant in New Brunswick, look no further!

    Best ceremony ever!!!

    My husband and I were married by Mark a few weeks ago. Our guests could not stop talking about how it was the best ceremony they had seen! It was so personal and fun! Our guests all asked how many hours we must have spent with Mark as they couldn't believe how he was able to perfectly capture our relationship together. We had a difficult time choosing an officiant as nobody had really stood out to us. Mark was recommended to us by another vendor and we are so happy we met him! Mark absolutely made our day and we can't recommend him enough!!!

    Mark is the best!

    Mark was one of the first vendors we picked when we started planning our wedding. He was an absolute dream to work with! I would have been way more stressed out if not for his superb organization and direction on all aspects of the ceremony. Our ceremony script was collaborative, beautiful, and emotional. Everyone laughed and cried along with us and the vibe was electric thanks to him. He has a wonderful presence! Our families were equally thrilled with the way he conducted the rehearsal and ceremony.

    Unbelievably Perfect!!

    Mark was positively phenomenal!! We knew he was the perfect one to marry us and officiate the ceremony upon first chatting with him on the phone. The phone consultation that was supposed to be "brief" ended up being an hour or so long with us just gabbing and laughing. His warmth, charm, wit and passion for what he does is incredible. The love story he put together from what my husband and I wrote about one another in response to Mark's questionnaire was absolutely beautiful. Mark puts so much time and effort into ensuring the ceremony is anything but boring! He made it so easy for my husband and I to feel completely stress free about everything and confident in the process. Everyone was complimenting us on the ceremony for days afterwards. All of our guests were all in total awe of how fun, personal, romantic and moving everything was from the vows to Mark himself! My husband and I could not have imagined it going any more magical than it did... and its all thanks to Mark. We are so thankful and appreciative of everything Mark did to go above and beyond our wildest expectations. It was such an immense pleasure to work with Mark. Wish we could give him more than just 5 stars!!

    Best Ceremony Ever!

    Mark married my husband and I this past July. Our guests raved about how it was the BEST ceremony they have ever been to. Everyone was laughing, crying and really engaged the wntire ceremony.
    Mark customized the ceremony so instead of reading the same old script most officiants used, it was a one of a kind ceremony customized for my husband and I. He really was worth every penny and I would 100% reccommend him.
