You may be planning a quick home wedding, something small in a local park, or be dreaming of a large wedding at a local hall. You and your fiance' may prefer a more traditional religious ceremony, a ceremony that combines elements of more than one tradition, or one that is completely secular. We have the skills, creativity, flexibility and desire to help you make it personal, and our fees are very reasonable.

Rev. Tim completed his Master of Divinity degree and was ordained in 1980. Retiring in December of 2012, he was a full-time Board Certified Chaplain in a local hospital for 31 years. He has been officiating weddings throughout the Greater Kansas City area since 1980, as well as within many other counties throughout eastern Kansas and western Missouri. His experience with many different denominations, religions and cultures enables him to be very flexible as he assists you in planning your wedding.

Rev. Melissa is an Ordained Minister with the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ), with a Master of Divinity degree from St. Paul School of Theology in Kansas City. After completing her Chaplain Residency, she worked as a Chaplain for two large Kansas City hospitals. Now Rev. Melissa has relocated to Omaha, Nebraska, where works as the Lead Chaplain in a large hospital. Rev. Melissa also continues to enjoy officiating weddings in the Omaha area, as well as the Kansas City when requested.

Rev. Tim and Rev. Melissa have a number of hand-selected clergy to whom we can refer you for those occasions when we are unavailable. Each one is an Ordained Minister in the Kansas City area and well experienced in officiating weddings. Therefore, there is no need for you to spend any more time or energy looking elsewhere for a wedding officiant who will work closely with you to create the wedding ceremony of your dreams.

Simple To Elegant Weddings continues to work with couples throughout the KC Metro area and beyond. To date we have traveled as far north as Oregon, MO; as far west as Ft. Riley, KS; as far south as Spring Hill, KS; and as far east as Lexington, MO.

Simple To Elegant Weddings is an Open and Affirming Wedding Officiant Company. Read less

Mark Willis was our Pastor officiating over the wedding. I cannot think of a single thing that he could have done better. He worked with us from the beginning of our planning, meeting with us, counseling us on the positives and negatives of marriage and what to expect; he was very helpful planning the event, providing us with several choices of ceremonies from which to choose, arranging for the organist, custodian, and sound person. Mark was very prompt and flexible with changes we made and was very good at directing the practice the night before as well as the wedding ceremony on our big day. His message was great, he added humor as appropriate, yet was very serious with the sanctity of marriage. Mark is GREAT!!!

Francis & I were so happy to have Mark Willis perform our wedding ceremony. We gave him more than he requested as an additional thank you! He is very professional;makes you feel comfortable in what could be a stressful event and a fun person to be around. I would highly recommend him for weddings, funerals, any event needing his profession.

We love him as our Pastor at Merriam Christian Church.

Rev. Brooks and his wife Jan were wonderful to work with! As soon as I reached out, I received a phone call back. We set up a time to meet and knew we had found the right person for the job.
We were given many different versions of the ceremony and ended up with the perfect length and feel for our private ceremony with family.
Rev. Brooks is very personable and easy to get to know and his wife Jan serves as a wonderful partner to assist with the logistics of the ceremony. We truly enjoyed working with them both!

Reverend Tim and Jan were wonderful! They worked with to create the ceremony we felt was right for us, and were open to all ideas. Also, they are very fun to talk to. Amongst all the craziness the day of, it was nice to have Jan there to help coordinate things. Unfortunately, the weather turned sour on our outdoor wedding, but Tim handled it well so we could just enjoy the moment.

We wanted a very simple, no stress ceremony and that's exactly what Tim provided. We highly recommend Simple2Elegant.

Tim was helpful and friendly throughout the whole process, and the fact that his wife assists him in acting as a wedding coordinator is invaluable - they both kept us on-time and on-target. Plus they are very laid back and good-humored - things you definitely need on a potentially stressful day!

Mark Wilis did a great job in working with us on our wedding ceremony. He met with us to get a good understanding of who we are and what we wanted in our ceremony. He then sent us several variations of the service to chose from and allowed us to piece our own ceremony together and make it all our own. It was a very special day and Mark was fantastic in help to make the day perfect for us, our family and friends.

Gabe was our officiant earlier this year for our wedding. First off, he was amazing! Secondly, he is so nice and friendly and flexible and accommodating and funny! And third, he is AMAZING! I can not tell you how much we loved him! He is very quick on his feet also, my husband and I wanted to change things up and instead of doing a unity candle or the sand ceremony we got a monogram brand made and burned it into a piece of wood..well someone forgot to put the brand in the fire so it was not in there long enough, needless to say it was a fail with a half burned monogram in the wood but Gabe was quick to think of something and made everyone laugh and not even notice the little mishap. I would definitely recommend anyone who is trying to find someone to go with Gabe, you will not be disappointed!!
