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. Tim is a member of an open and affirming church in Kansas City North.

Rev. Melissa is an Ordained Minister with the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ), having completed her Master of Divinity degree at St. Paul School of Theology in June of 2012. Since completing her year-long Chaplain Residency in August, she has worked as a Chaplain for two large Kansas City hospitals. Melissa accompanied her father, Tim, to countless weddings for 15 years and has officiated several hundred weddings since 2007.

Rev. Melissa continues to be an important part of Simple To Elegant Weddings, however she has relocated to Omaha, Nebraska and is working as the Lead Chaplain in a large hospital. Melissa will not be officiating any further weddings in the Kansas City Region, however she is available for a limited number of weddings in and around Omaha.

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. Read less

Reverend Tim Brooks was wonderful. He was easy to get a hold of, very responsive, and flexible to work around our schedule. He was attentive to what we asked for and allowed us to read the ceremony beforehand. What he wrote was so beautiful and meaningful. Reverend Brooks was also kind enough to bring his wife (we just adored her!) to stand as a witness since my husband and I planned a small elopement. They're such kind people and really made our special day so memorable!

My wife and I got married on 6/28/2014. Gabe Combs was our officiant and he did a fantastic job. Our weather was not exactly as planned, raining during what was suppose to be an outdoor ceremony, but Gabe did a great job of tying this into the message he delivered, and making light of the situation. The ability to tweak his message to fit our circumstances really impressed us and our guests. When he compared life's unforeseen nature with marriage, and asked my 89 year old grandmother if everything in her marriage had gone exactly according to plan, her response, shouting "NO", really gave everyone a good laugh. Although we did not have the beautiful outdoor ceremony we had envisioned, Gabe's good humor and adaptability made for a memorable, touching ceremony.

Rev. Gabe Combs was our officiant at our June 14, 2014 wedding, and he was wonderful. We really enjoyed speaking with Gabe during our planning process, and working on our ceremony with him. He made the ceremony very personal and we felt like it "fit" us perfectly. We had so many compliments from our guests about how much they enjoyed the ceremony, and how well Gabe did. He also was wonderful at our rehearsal, keeping everyone on track and explaining everyone's role. Gabe is just a great guy, and I feel lucky to have had him officiate our wedding ceremony. Thank you Gabe!!

Rev. Tim did a fabulous job officiating our wedding! Our ceremony was everything we had imagined, and Rev. Tim really helped us to customize it the way we had envisioned, as well as answering any questions we had along the way. During the planning process, he was in Kansas City, I was in Springfield, MO, and my husband was down in southeast Missouri, but we were able to meet with Rev. Tim and his wife over Skype and via phone calls without a hitch.

I would definitely reccommend Rev. Tim if you have some rowdy groomsmen and bridesmaids in your wedding party; we certainly did but Rev. Tim was great at running an efficient rehearsal and getting everyone to cooperate and listen!

Our wedding ceremony also would not have run as smoothly as it did without the help of Rev. Tim's wife Jan. She served as the coordinator for the whole processional - parents, grandparents, bridesmaids, groomsmen, the flower girl, etc. She did a great job of seeing a potential issue before it occurred, making the necessary change, and letting everyone know ahead of time what the new plan was. We could not see the altar or hear the music from where we were all entering from, so she helped let us know when to begin walking down the aisle, which was a huge help as well.

We were married on the terrace at The Oread in Lawrence. We had about 120 guests and heard nothing but positive reviews about Gabe Combs from everyone. Gabe was the perfect fit for us since he offered plenty of material for us to review ahead of time and to simply request what we wanted; which made for just the right message that we had in mind for our wedding.

We went to the Simple to Elegant Weddings web page and looked at the trusted clergy section. We picked Reverend Mark Willis. It was the best decision we made. We met Mark and as soon as we met, my wife and I knew Mark was the one. We only had a vague idea of what kind of ceremony we wanted when we met Mark. Mark told us that he could give us examples of some ceremonies and readings we could use to build our wedding. Mark sent us several examples of ceremonies and vows and several different types of readings, from scriptures to poems to quotes from books that we could choose from. We looked them over, and ended up picking a couple from his list and added a few of our own. Mark said he would be able to work them all into the ceremony without any problems. Mark came out to our rehearsal and actually took charge and walked us through it. It was great because we didn't know what to do. Mark explained things, and showed us what to do and asked us if that is what we wanted. We took his advice and direction. The big day finally came. Mark was there early, dressed nicely and ready to go. The ceremony went off without any problems just as we had rehearsed. Mark spoke eloquently and was very comfortable in front of the wedding guests. After the ceremony we got several complements from people on how good the ceremony was. We owe it all to Reverend Mark Willis and my wife and I are so glad we chose him. We hope you do too.

The officiant I had hired to perform our wedding ceremony had to cancel due to health reasons 3 weeks prior to our wedding. In a panic, I began calling officiants and was blessed to find Rev. Brooks. He met with my fiancee and I two days later to discuss our wedding. He and his wife were amazing and made us feel very much at ease. The day of, his wife helped coordinate the ceremony and entrance of the wedding party. She even took care of our fussy 1 year old ringbearer so our guests could give their full attention to the ceremony. Our wedding was beautiful and exactly what we wanted. It was truly a blessing in disguise the we found Rev. Brooks!

Gabe Combs was the officiant for our wedding and we absolutely loved him. He met with us several times prior to our wedding so we could feel comfortable with him and get on the same page. Gabe gave us a huge list of readings, prayers, vows, and other ceremonies for us to choose from. We picked what we liked and he made a final document showing us exactly how the wedding would go. I liked this because we were able to make it our own special memory. He is an extremely sociable guy and made people laugh during the ceremony to take the edge off. We definitely recommend Gabe to others!

He was flexible with the short notice we gave him for our wedding day. He is reasonable with prices. Tim worked well with the small wedding we had. I will use him again when my husband and i renew our vows.

Gabe Combs was our officiant, I can't recommend him enough. He was quick to respond on emails. He was very flexible meeting up. Our first meeting was low pressure and after a few additional emails, everything was ready to go. I appreciated that he provded examples of readings and also too suggestions. Our rehersal was great, and the wedding was amazing. Gabe keeps some of the ceremony to him self during rehersal so that it is fresh at the wedding for the bride and groom. It was nice touch.

Thanks again Gabe for making our day special.

I could not be more pleased with our experience with Rev. Tim Brooks! We had never met before, so he took the time to call me before our elopement ceremony to get to know me and my husband.

I could not be more pleased with our experience with Rev. Tim Brooks! We had never met before, so he took the time to call me before our elopement ceremony to get to know me and my husband.

We recently got married on April 4th and we had the pleasure of having Tim Brooks officiate our wedding! Right from the first email to the ceremony Rev. Brooks was extremely helpful and friendly. We communicated by email a lot and Rev. Brooks was quick to respond and was very knowledgeable.

He is smiling brightly in all of our photos as well and made eye contact with both of us throughout the ceremony and especially when we took our vows! My Grandmother, who walked me down the aisle, also commented about how wonderful he was to listen to and that he was extremely personable with everyone in attendance.

He made our day memorable and put everyone at ease! Would highly recommend booking Rev. Tim Brooks and using Simple 2 Elegant Weddings!

Thanks again for making our day so pleasant!

Gabe Combs was the officiant for our wedding and was one of the many parts which made our day great. We really enjoyed meeting him prior to the wedding to get to know him a bit and we felt right at home chatting with him. He was very professional and provided plenty of samples/ideas for vows and ceremony flow for us to consider. Highly recommend Gabe, he is very flexible and will work with you to get your ceremony perfect.

Reverend Tim and his wife Jan made are day go seamlessly. They are so prepared that we didn't have to worry about everything being in place. They were also willing to meet with us over FaceTime as we live 2 hours away from where the ceremony took place. This gave us another opportunity to get to know them better before our ceremony.

Reverend Gabe Combs officiated our wedding and we cannot recommend him enough!! Gabe is not only the nicest man, but the consummate professional! He was a dream to work with. He is so responsive and easy to work with. From the minute we met him, we knew he was the right officiant for us. He made the process of organizing our ceremony so easy, and was so flexible and accommodating. Our ceremony was beautiful, personal, and exactly what we wanted...all because of Gabe. We consider ourselves lucky to have worked with him, and now consider him a friend and confidante, not just an officiant. We have heard from many of our guests that we had the most beautiful and romantic wedding they have ever been too.

Gabe is wonderful, because he gets personally involved too. He aims to actually get to know a couple and to tailor the ceremony around them and what they want. Our ceremony truly represented who we are, because Gabe took the time to get to know us. We spent hours together talking, counseling, and getting to know each other. People talk about how stressful their weddings days are, but both my husband and I were cool as cucumbers. Gabe had us prepared, ready, and confident! I cannot express enough how happy we were with our decision to choose Gabe! We still keep in contact with him, and look forward to doing so! Gabe help make our dream ceremony a reality, and we are so lucky to have had him!

After sitting down and chatting with Gabe Combs, we knew that he was a perfect fit for our wedding. We were very specific and particular with what we did want and did not want included in the ceremony. He was very understanding and flexible, and tailored the wedding to our exact wishes. We kept in contact as the wedding got closer and he responded very quickly and made sure we had everything put together with ample time. When we needed help with figuring out how we should schedule/organize, he was more than willing to help us in the right direction. At the rehearsal dinner, he was able to corral our very rowdy bridal party and everyone knew their queue and what to do.

We received several compliments about the ceremony and had so many people comment about how much they liked Gabe. He was a tremendous resource and we are so happy with our decision to have him as our officiant.

Rev. Gabe Combs was a pleasure to work with and I'm so glad that he was there performing the ceremony on our big day. For nearly a year my husband and I had been planning to have my old youth pastor marry us, but then at the -2 month mark he learned of an unavoidable out-of-town trip the weekend of our wedding. I was bride in panic mode!! One of the key factors of our wedding that had been planned for so long just seemed to fall apart. What to do!?

Fortunately we were recommended to Gabe. We'd never met in person and live in California (wedding to be in Lenexa), so it seemed impossible that this should work. Not the case. Gabe was great! He was understanding and eager to learn about who we are as people and as a couple. He worked with us via phone and email and helped us plan the ceremony that we wanted.

We were back in Kansas the week leading up to our Saturday wedding, and met with Gabe for coffee. Immediately we were both at ease and very comfortable about a day that typically ensues the nerves. He's a great guy with a good sense of humor. On top of his easygoing personality and flexibility, he did a great job of orchestrating the ceremony beginning at the rehearsal. He was very professional in leading the wedding party and making sure everything flowed smoothly.

I would highly recommend Gabe to anyone. He is a lifesaver and made our day perfect!

We CANNOT begin to describe how amazing Rev. Brooks and his wife, Jan, were in regards to planning our wedding. They were great with respecting our lack of religious belief while also incorporating a small amount of it to appease family. You can GENIUNELY tell that they care about joining two people together and they made us feel completely loved and valued. If you are even considering them please do yourself a favor and get them to officiate your wedding, they will make it extra special.

We had Gabe Combs officiate our wedding. We also went through a pre-marital counseling program he offers, which I would strongly recommend. He did an outstanding job in both preparing us for marriage and in officiating the ceremony. He made us feel comfortable through the entire process and helped to calm my (now) wife's nerves. I would recommend him to anyone looking for a minister.

We were not able to meet Reverend Brooks prior to our wedding as we were coming from out of town but we spoke with him several times before our event and he was very responsive via email and phone. As we were not really sure what we wanted for our service he was able to send us several sample services that we could pick and choose elements from, which was great. The service we went with was just what we were looking for--short but lovely. Our family was very pleased as well. He was very kind and friendly in person (as was his wife, who came with him) and we completely satisfied.

Thank you, Rev!

We chose Rev. Tim Brooks from Simple to Elegant Weddings after reading about their services and reviews. We were looking for someone who would be willing to help us put together a ceremony but was also very flexible as to not include too much religious attributes. Rev. Brooks seemed to fit that perfectly. We met with him and his wife, Jan, on the Plaza to discuss the overall idea of our wedding. This was before we even contracted with them and they were willing to travel out of their way to meet with us. He and Jan were so helpful in a time when I did not have a clue what I was doing. They gave us wonderful ideas of little things we could do to make the day special, including the wine box and love letters ceremony. Working with them was so easy, Tim sent us ceremony transcripts that he has done in the past, we tweaked them and sent them back for him to look over.
We chose to utilize his services for our rehearsal as well. It was such a great decision as we had two little ones in the wedding who adored Jan and were excited that she would be helping to coordinate the wedding party. (It's like getting a two for one deal!). The ceremony went off without a hitch, the little ones went on time and Jan answered all of my last minute questions including what I do with my engagement ring. (I chose to wear it and change the rings after the ceremony.)
From beginning to end we could tell that Tim and Jan really cared about us and our wedding. Although my now husband and I are laid back people, when it comes to such a significant day in your life the little things did stress me and I appreciate Tim and Jan being so helpful.
Thank you again, Tim and Jan.

Reverend Tim was an excellent wedding officiant. His price was very reasonable. The ceremony was thorough, however expeditious - all thanks to Rev Tim. Additionally, when you acquire Rev Tim for your officiant services you also get the perk of his wife being there to assist in other event efforts. She was not asked to do this, but took it upon herself to become involved when it was warranted.

We would highly recommend you consider Reverend Tim when searching for a wedding officiant.

Reverend Tim Brooks and his wife, Jan are so wonderful! Reverend Tim met with us before our wedding and we knew almost immediately that he could deliver the ceremony we wanted. We wanted something secular that focused on the bond of friendship and the importance of family. He did such a fantastic job, not only during the ceremony but also at helping me keep calm beforehand. He sent us about a dozen ceremony scripts to pick from and let us alter them however we wanted. He was so willing to help in any way and was so nice about the few last minute changes we threw at him! Jan helped to figure out how everyone was going to process and recess- which it was SO nice to not have to worry about this! She helped keep everyone in time with the musician and straightened my train on the way down the aisle. They helped make sure all of the groomsmen and bridesmaids looked sharp before the ceremony. We are so blessed to have had them as a part of our wedding! I definitely recommend them and will be sending people their way as often as possible.

We cannot say enough good things about Tim and his wife Jan. They are both very kind, sweet people and were an absolute joy to work with. We picked Tim based on the hundreds of great reviews across various sites, and he was the first officiant we went with. We just loved his personality, and the fact that he's done so many weddings, so he brought great insight to our planning. Jan also helped keep our ceremony running smoothly by getting everyone lined up, making sure everyone's clothing and flowers looked good and getting us all down the aisle on time! Tim offers a bunch of different ceremony templates you can customize or mix and match to make the perfect ceremony for your special day. We loved working with Tim and would recommend him to anyone!

We just loved his personality, and the fact that he's done so many weddings, so he brought great insight to our planning. Jan also helped keep our ceremony running smoothly by getting everyone lined up, making sure everyone's clothing and flowers looked good and getting us all down the aisle on time! Tim offers a bunch of different ceremony templates you can customize or mix and match to make the perfect ceremony for your special day. We loved working with Tim and would recommend him to anyone!

My husband and I loved our officiant, Gabe Combs! He not only performed the ceremony but also offered premarital counseling. We appreciated his easy-to-approach attitude and quick response to any emails or phone calls. He made the whole planning process easy and offered advice when needed. My family came up to me after the service and said they really liked him too. Gabe has such a calming personality and makes you feel at ease whenever you're around him.

We used Reverand Gabe Combs associated with Simple to Elegant Weddings as the main officiants were out of town that weekend. What a wonderful twist of fate! Gabe met with us to go over our specific wants and needs in the wedding ceremony. We aren't religious, so it was very important for us to find someone who respected that. We also went through pre-marital counseling with Gabe. It was not based on any particular religion, but focused more on maintaining an open dialogue about potential issues that may come up in our lives together. Going through pre-marital counseling with Gabe made our wedding day even more special because he knew us. That was one thing that worried me about trying to find an officiant online. But Gabe was perfect! He ran the rehearsal very well (my mom was impressed with how he wrangled everyone together) and was fantastic at the wedding. I received several comments about how he was funny, earnest, and his words of wisdom were spot on. I would highly recommend him for anyone looking for a wedding officiant, for all types of ceremonies.

He provided us with a lot of ideas for ceremony content and was extremely accommodating, especially since we wanted to have a more nontraditional, secular ceremony. Having him as our officiant took a lot of the stress away because he was so reliable and professional. On the day of, he and his wife were so helpful and even a calming influence around us.

I talked to Reverand Tim, and he was more than happy to make this happen for us. He was in her hospital room 3 hours later to marry us. He talked to my mother in law, and prayed for her, and when he did the prayer for our ceremony he also prayed for her then, and we will be forever grateful to him. He was very kind, and proffessional. He even took pictures for us. He was overall just awesome, and we could not have asked for a better person to marry us, especially on such notice. It turned out great. He did such a good job! Thank you so very much!

We decided 3 weeks out to have a minister come to the home and marry us instead of a court house wedding...With 3 weeks before our date we got Tim Brooks number from the courthouse. He was professional and responded right away through phone calls and email. We got to choose our own ceremony through information sent to us by Tim. We had a wonderful wedding and everything was perfect. He had great suggestions and ideas and he brought his wife along who helped meet my needs (The Bride) She made sure all was ready to go..checked my dress and suggested my son walk me down the stairs...We were very pleased and would definitely recommend their services! We have been married now just over a week and I already received my marriage license in the mail which means They were also Prompt in getting my paperwork to the recorder of deeds!

She made our special wedding day a day that my wife and our children will never forget. I don't know how many people came up to us after the wedding telling us how amazing the Officiant was and how they felt apart of the ceremony from beginning to end.

I can tell you that Melissa was simply amazing throughout the entire wedding planning process and the wedding day! The ceremony was so beautiful and heart felt. She made our special wedding day a day that my wife and our children will never forget. I don't know how many people came up to us after the wedding telling us how amazing the Officiant was and how they felt apart of the ceremony from beginning to end. I have told Melissa that I will sing her praises whenever she needs a referral. I can tell you that it will be one of the best and easiest decisions in the wedding planning process. Read less

Words cannot express how thankful we are to have found officiant, Sondra Bowers. Because of Sondra, our wedding day turned into so much more than we ever hoped for...it was the most beautiful moment of our lives, and we are so unbelievably grateful to have been referred to her. Our families and guests were equally enamored by Sondra and were touched by the beautiful and heartfelt manner in which she delivered our entire ceremony. She was prompt and professional, she went above and beyond to help us create a ceremony that fit our style and needs, and that told "our story." She is a lovely human being!!!

We received numerous compliments regarding our officiant, Melissa. The ceremony was well organized and Melissa was spoke loudly and was articulate for all of our guests to hear. She offered many different options and "scripts" for a non-religious wedding. We were happy to have Melissa as our officiant.

We had tons of compliments on our ceremony, and most was due to the suggestions of Rev. Hon. Excellent choice in minister, look no further!!

We believe that is the highest compliment we could give to Gabe and his abilities. Gabe was energized, pleasant, responsive, organized and most of all professional.

Ladies and gents,

I cannot begin to express how awesome Rev. Tim and his lovely wife Jan are. If you are looking for a fun but professional person to pronounce you husband and wife do not hesitate to call him and chat. My husband and I interviewed quite a lot of people but when we met Tim on the plaza at starbucks it was all over. The man is funny, witty, and totally flexible. His whole agenda is to make the ceremony yours by design. He has several different formats and he welcomes you to mix it up however you want. His wife Jan is his right hand and so wonderfully nice. I swear this isn't just newlywed bliss talking. I'm extremely blunt and straightforward and this guy is the real deal. I urge you to call and just talk to him and you'll see what I mean. A++++....P.S my husband says YEAH! lol

He did an excellent job of providing guidance and direction to my husband and me, as well as to the wedding party on our big day. I would certainly recommend him to any bride and groom!

Not being a religious couple, we were at a total loss when looking for someone to officiate our wedding. We searched the internet and were immediately drawn to the wonderful reviews that Rev Tim received on this site. We scheduled a meeting with Rev Tim and his wife Jan and were not disappointed. From our first meeting to our wedding day, they were great to deal with. From planning the ceremony, to organizing the day, they made things so easy and stress free (which is crucial when planning a wedding!). Rev Tim and Jan were also sensitive to certain family issues and our request for a civil, not religious ceremony. Since we didn't have a wedding planner or day of coordinator, the addition of Jan was such an asset to us. The ceremony went seamlessly, which we attribute to the two of them! They obviously enjoy what they do, and it shows!

This vendor provided us with a person who was not only able to calm our nerves, but ease the nervousness of our wedding party during rehearsal to make everything as smooth as possible.

First off I want to say the whole reason I picked Tim was due to this site and all the reviews on here... so thank you previous brides/grooms. I also chose Tim due to the fact I am an RN, so I deal with a lot of pastoral care and I knew his background of working at hospital was going to benefit me. On that note, Tim was absolutely wonderful. He made my husband and I feel very comfortable throughout the whole process. Tim made sure we realized that it was our wedding and we were the ones that needed to make the decisions. Since I was such a cry baby during the ceremony, Tim made me feel very relaxed through the whole thing and some how with his calming nature he helped my tears stay to a minimal...which was harder than some can imagine. All in all Tim was fantastic and I would recommend him to anyone!

Rev. Brooks was excellent, and his wife helped out a lot during the ceremony making sure that everyone was where they were supposed to be, when they were supposed to be there. The ceremony itself was perfect, my husband and I went through and read a lot of possible "scripts" that Rev. Brooks provided, and picked our favorite one (it was perfectly customized for our smaller wedding, but there were a lot for a more formal occasion as well).

We really enjoyed working with them, and they had the experience that we needed to help ask us the right questions to make sure that everything (even the things we never really considered) were addressed and just the way we wanted them. Would definitely recommend Rev. Brooks to anyone looking to do a wedding ceremony.

Reverend Tim was very easy to work with and allowed us to combine parts of 8 different ceremonies to design a ceremony that matched us perfectly. My husband and I are were very pleased and would recommend Tim and his wife to any couple getting married.

When I first called Rev Tim I felt very comfortable with him immediately. He helped us with a place to have the ceremony. When we first seen the church we knew it was the perfect place for our special day. Rev Tims wife was so helpful as well, and what a sweetheart!! And Janice was an incredible help!!! I cannot say enough good things about everyone who was involved that day. After we booked Rev Tim we discovered that he also married my new sister in law and her husband. He also officiated at their Mothers funeral. Thank you so much for everything you did!!! Our day could not have been more perfect!!!

With all the stresses of planning a wedding the last piece to our dream wedding was to find an officiant. After calling around and speaking to several officiants, we came in contact with Rev. Jeff Hon and we could have not been more pleased with the outcome. Having two different religious backgrounds, we wanted to keep the ceremony as neutral as possible to respect both side of the families. Rev. Jeff Hon, did an amazing job listening to the needs of our reqeusts and did his own search on finding the perfect readings to make our ceremony special. We would highly recommend him to all of our family and friends!

Our wedding was a bit non-traditional and Tim helped us turn many of our questions in a perfect ceremony. He took care of it all and was the perfect kick-off for our wedding. Thanks Rev Tim!

We were married in September at a ceremony performed by Jeff Hon. It was the second marriage for both of us, and we both wanted it to be as simple and stress-free as possible.

We picked the date that our work schedules would allow, and planned to be married at the courthouse. It was not until we went to get our license, that we found out there would be no judge available to marry us that day.

In a panic, I began making phone calls, and was lucky enough to find the Simple to Elegant web site. Within a couple of hours, Jeff Hon saved our plans by agreeing to perform the ceremony, and he also found a lovely couple willing to be our witnesses.

I am so thankful that there was not a judge to marry us that day, as we would have missed out on a beautiful, memorable ceremony, that we will cherish forever! Jeff could not have been more accommodating, and I cannot recommend the services enough.

We would both recommend working with her for your wedding.

Rev. Brooks was amazing in a really stressful situation. About 90 minutes before our wedding was about to begin, my wife's dress was destroyed by the water sprinkler system in the hotel being activated. She found the local David's Bridal location, and we raced there, found a dress in 20 minutes and our wedding was only about 30 minutes behind schedule. She kept us focused on what was important about that day, and we appreciated her ability to stay focused and centered through what could have been a complete disaster for some couples.

The time she spent with us creating the ceremony that fit us was amazing as well. She gave us many options for each section of our ceremony, and by the time we were done creating our ceremony, even we were moved by how awesome it was. It was truly an expression of our commitment and love for each other. We had many people come up to us and say how amazing and touching our ceremony was.

I highly recommend Rev. Melissa Brooks if you want to create the ceremony of your dreams!

Melissa was a wonderful Wedding Officiant. She was exuberant, helpful, efficient, charming and incredibly flexible. One had to smile when she walked into a room. My groom and I loved and appreciated her to the extent that we now consider her a close friend. She socialized so well with my family and friends that they all commented on how wonderful and gracious she was. (It was a very eclectic group so that was no mean feat,) There are no upcoming weddings in my family or circle of friends but I'm sure they would consider her if one arises. She researched wedding vows, helped with agendas and was definitely wins the Miss Congeniality contest. I would unconditionally urge any couple planning their wedding to engage Melissa as their Wedding Officiant. They could not do better.

Tim Brooks, "The Rev," was a great addition to our dream wedding. He completely created the wedding ceremony based on the aspects that were important to us. His presence at the altar was comforting (I was really nervous). Tim was flexible with our needs and with me as I stood at the front of the chapel and just looked around at our guests. He was attentive to our needs and did everything he could to make our day perfect. He even gave me a handkerchief to wipe the tears from my eyes during our vows.

How do you put a price on your officiant? Let me tell you, after our original officiant canceled, I did some checking. Some officiants charge ridiculous amounts of money to marry couples. Tim's fees were beyond reasonable, and he was the epitome of professional. I will always remember his kindness and genuine joy for us.

Tim is sensitive to personal beliefs and what his nearlyweds envision for their wedding day. It was truly a blessing to have "The Rev" officiate our ceremony. We look back on this day with true happiness.

Jan, Tim's wife, was a great help to our wedding planner in making sure that everything went smoothly. She's a great asset to all brides, especially those who do not have wedding planners.

Thanks for making our day so special!

Tim brooks and his wife did awsome at my wedding. They were on time and when they arrived things were getting a little crazy. We were running out of time. Tim and his wife helped get us organized and the ceremony went really well. They really helped us stay calm. Thanks so much for helping us with our special day. Thanks so much to Tims wife for helping me with my dress for the ceremony and pictures.

Jeff Hon was our officiant at our wedding May 14, 2011. We were so impressed with how Jeff was able to understand our relationship after having only meeting with us once before our wedding. We had so many people comment on how great of a job he did, and so many friends that were amazed that he had not known us for several years. We could not give him a stronger review than saying he made our day perfect. It is so obvious he loves what he does.

If you are looking for a wedding officiant who is organized, responsible, patient, kind, and very responsive CALL REV. MELISSA BROOKS! She is amazing! From our first meeting with her we knew our search for an officiant was over. Every single aspect of our wedding ceremony was beautiful and flawless. Our guests tell me constantly how much they enjoyed our ceremony and what a great job Melissa did. Although it is a small segment of the day, your wedding ceremony will probably be the most precious memory of your entire wedding day, you will not be disappointed if Melissa is running the show!

Since, this was a very private, intimate wedding we wanted someone who we felt was a good fit for us. Soon after Scott and I were engaged, we reached out to Tim. He contacted us immediately, spoke to me on the phone for a while and then met us for coffee a few days later. As soon as Scott and I left the coffee house, we knew Tim was perfect. Going with your first instinct is always the best way!

Tim helped us plan our vows and took the time to get to know us. The day of the wedding Tim and his lovely wife arrived early, calmed our nerves and delivered the best wedding sermon. After we were married everyone at the wedding said how perfect our vows were.

This change put her more at ease and was actually better suited for both of us. Tim came early to ensure everything was ready. He worked with the photographer to ensure everything was all about the us in terms of positioning and movements during the ceremony.

We would gladly recommend Tim to any couple who is looking for someone to perform a wedding ceremony.

I am very happy with the fact that he was willing to meet with us the next day and kept in constant telephone contact with me throughout, my butterfly's eased a bit. Our ceremony was done in Kansas, and he was able to get to the requested location without any problems. We plan on doing a vow renewal ceremony in th future and based on this experience I will definitely be requesting his services.

Rev. Tim brooks did an amazing job as officiant of our wedding. His proffesional and personable approach made him an easy choice. He offered very helpful suggestions for our ceremony, which we pieced together from his numerous examples as well as our own personal touches. Throughout the entire process he was very flexible and accomodating with all of our ideas. We actually decided to forgoe a rehearsal and unfortunately only got the final cermony to him 2 days in advance still, Rev. Brooks performed a flawless and beautiful cermony. He was even able to improvise seemlessly on a few minor areas that we overlooked. Rev Brooks was also very punctual and detail oriented which helped take a great deal of stress out of the day knowing our ceremony was in such competent hands. We would highly recommend Rev. Tim Brooks!

I first spoke with Tim, who then put me in touch with his daughter, Melissa, because he would not be available on the wedding day -- both Tim and Melissa were wonderful! They are very open to the ceremony that works for the couple, though they also have ideas if you and your fiance need any help. Melissa and I mainly communicated via email due to my schedule, but she was open to phone calls and meeting in person if that is what I preferred. The ceremony was very meaningful and many guests commented on the beautiful way that Melissa officiated and what a nice person she was! My husband and I couldn't agree more :) Thank you!

Rev. Tim was amazing! My husband and I planned our wedding in our hometown, and we live 3 states away. Rev. Tim sat down and discussed what we wanted with us while we were in town for a week to complete our planning. He was great--very personable and easy to talk to! We worked with him via e-mail and phone to finalize the details, which made our lives easy. Although he performs many ceremonies, he always remembered who we are when we spoke (either by phone or e-mail). Our ceremony was absolutely beautiful! Our guests commented about how lovely the ceremony was. Many of our guests were also impressed with Rev. Tim for using an iPad for his ceremony notes--one guest even tweeted about how cool that was.

We were absolutely thrilled with Rev. Tim and highly recommend him!

She took control of the ceremony and made sure everything went smoothly. She made personal touches to the ceremony that was so beautiful. When a situation arose she knew just what to do and made sure I continued smiling through it all. It didn't matter what was needed on that day she was there, she help setup and help pin up mine and my flower girls dress. From the planning days all the way through the reception Melissa was more than my officiant, she was our friend. I couldn't have asked for a better person to be there to officiating my wedding and be my friend. Thank-you so much Melissa!

My husband and i are very pleased with Rev Melissa brooks and were so blessed to be able to find her to marry us. We are not "church" people so when we decided we were going to get married we were a little worried about who was going to be our officiant. When i initially e mailed to ask about their service she was VERY fast getting back to me. She got me the samples of vows very fast as well and was very understanding about the changes that we wanted to make to them. It was a little colder and windy the day of our wedding then we were expecting but she was right there with us shivering through our ceremony. When we decide to renew our vows, we will defiantly be having Melissa do it if she is still available! Thank you for the great day! :)

He was never pushy in saying that we had to have the ceremony any certain way. He had many options to offer when we needed and was respectful of the variety of religious views of our guests. My husband appreciated the personal advice that he gave him on how to handle the emotional moments. His experience was golden!
Thank you Rev. Brooks for helping our special day run smoothly.

Wow! I can't begin to say enough about Melissa. She was great! Thank you Thank you Thank you. She was available to help me with anything I needed. She helped me proof my programs to make sure I hit every point. It isn't everyday you write up a wedding program. I asked if she would "take control" at the rehearsal so I wouldn't have to, and she did. She did such a wonderful job. The day of the ceremony she made sure I was ready to go, and checked on the groom. She made sure we were coordinated appropriate on the time. The ceremony itself was great. We were able to pick out our vows ahead of time and they were exactly what I wanted. She was just wonderful and I would highly recommend Melissa. Their ratings really speak for themselves!

Wow! I can't begin to say enough about Melissa. She was great! Thank you Thank you Thank you. She was available to help me with anything I needed. She helped me proof my programs to make sure I hit every point. It isn't everyday you write up a wedding program. I asked if she would "take control" at the rehearsal so I wouldn't have to, and she did. She did such a wonderful job.

Robert and I wanted something rather nontraditional but very touching. We got just what we wanted. It was great - in fact my brother and his girlfriend have decided to get married in March. This is indeed a day that will be engraved in not only our hearts but in the hearts of my brother; mom and dad; son; daughter; and a few friends. Thank you Rev. Tim!

Reverend Tim Brooks deserves a higher rating than 5. He is the quintessential professional. My fiancée and I were initially worried about who would be our officiant because our pastor could not join us together as husband and wife since we were getting married on a Sunday. We were referred to Tim and were initially concerned because we did want a reverend we knew to perform our marriage ceremony.

At the end of the day, our initial apprehensions did not matter. He graciously welcomed us into his home where we were able to introduce ourselves a few weeks before the ceremony. On our wedding day, he briefly met with Andrea and I a few minutes before the ceremony, calming us down and telling us that everything would be alright. The ceremony went very well. We had an outdoor wedding, and I (the groom) was really hot and started to sweat. He politely took out a handkerchief for me to use.

Although this is an overused cliché, words cannot express how satisfied my wife and I are to have had Tim as our officiant. I’ve written only a handful of reviews, and only do so when I am passionate about a particular service or product. Any future husband and wife will be so lucky to have Reverend Tim Brooks as your officiant. He is kind, patient, and realizes what the ceremony means not only for the bride and groom, but their family and friends. My full name is very hard and complicated to pronounce, and he took the time to nail my Nigerian name. My parents were very pleased. We can only hope that you take this review into consideration when considering who will join you into this world as one union. You will be blessed if you chose Tim.

My husband and I were extremely pleased with Tim Brooks. He conducted a beautiful ceremony for us...one that we will remember for a lifetime! Tim made it so easy for us during the planning stages of the ceremony. He emailed us eight different types of ceremonies to review. When we met with him we shared our favorite of the eight and tweaked it a little to make it unique to us. It was PERFECT! Personally his "Hands Ceremony" was our favorite out of the eight we reviewed!
The best advice he shared the day of our wedding was "keep your knees bent at the alter"! It keeps the bride from becoming weak or passing out from nerves! :-)
He was an absolute joy to work with and we would highly recommend him to
anyone! God Bless!

Rev. Melissa married my husband and I on July 24, 2010. When we originally booked with them, Tim was going to do the ceremony. Tim helped us create a ceremony that was personal to us and included some special things. The Monday before the wedding, Tim called Jeremy and explained that there was an emergency and Tim would not be able to do the ceremony. He arranged for Melissa to do the rehearsal and ceremony for us. She was so polite and courteous and made us feel so comfortable. She was early on the day of the wedding and helped to make sure everything was set up. She did a great job with the ceremony. After the ceremony, she got our marriage license turned in very quickly. Rev. Tim and Melissa are both amazing people who care so much about the people they are working with. They have amazing services at an awesome price! Thank you both so much for making our wedding wonderful!

We were greatly impressed with her flexibility and willingness to helpout in what ever way that she could. I was most impressed that she was willing to personalize our ceremony and had many layouts for us to chose from, which in our search for an officiant we found many not to be very flexible at all! Our families gave Rev Melissa many praises and were greatly impressed with her friendlliness and her professionalism. We would highly recommend her to anyone!!

Reverend Brooks was the officiant at our wedding ceremony, and he did a wonderful job. We knew we wanted Reverend Brooks to be our officiant within a minute of speaking with him on the phone. What we loved the most about Reverend Brooks was that he was so open to us personalizing our ceremony. We used pieces from several different ceremonies he provided to us, and it made our ceremony very unique. Rev. Brooks also met with us before our wedding to ensure that everything was in order. On our wedding day, he arrived early and did a great job officiating the ceremony. We got several compliments from family and friends. We would highly recommend Reverend Brooks.

Pastor Tim really came through for us! My Fiance's company transferred him to another country a couple of months before our wedding! Pastor Tim was so accommodating meeting us when WE had a small window of time. He offered suggestions and even provided us with examples of vows we could alter to have the special meaning we wanted for our big day. He even let us choose what he wore! Even though we had so much going on and didn't get our vows to him as quickly as we would have liked, he was a true professional! He didn't skip a beat, he delivered our vows and conducted the ceremony with such perfection, it was amazing!

I would diffidently recommend him to others.

He was very calming and said we could do it anyplace....it did not have to be the exact spot. So we did it someplace else and it was more perfect than the original plan! Very go with the flow. Very helpful with encouragement and in ceremony decisions. He had a lot of materials to choose from if we wanted to.

She sent us copies of different wedding ceremonies to see if their was one we liked or if we would like to make up our own vows. She was prompt on arrival, actually earlier to make sure that we were comfortable and didn't have any questions. She was also very professional. I would recommend her to anyone looking for someone to officiate at their wedding. We felt like we had known her forever. Thanks Melissa for a job very well done..

If I could give Melissa more stars I would ( 10.0/5.0 :). My long planned Vegas wedding fell through the weekend of, because my dress didn't arrive in time. I went to Vegas and came back still single... still wanting some special way to celebrate getting married. But I was completely tired of wedding plans. I called 'The Inn on Crescent Lake' on the off chance that they would have an open day for a quick wedding. The owner said 'how about this weekend'!?! GREAT!!! But I knew she wouldn't be able to find a minister in time.... cue Melissa (the heroine of my special day.) She made me feel excited again! It wasn't drudgery anymore. She was enthusiastic and well organized at the same time. She didn't make me feel that my small wedding was any less significant than an elaborate one. In short, she played a huge part in making my day what I dreamed it would be.

Sincerely, Mrs. Lopez

We couldn't have picked a better person to marry us. Tim was such a nice man, right off the bat. When we talked on the phone the first time - I was just dead set on having him marry us. (After talking to at least 10 other people before.) He had a love for the military, which was great - because my husband is currently serving our country. And, we had to do a very quick ceremony - due to my husband having to go back over seas. Tim was very responsible, and on time. And he was very professional. He even showed up in red and black - my wedding colors - and, he wasn't even TOLD :) How about that for 'meant to be'. I would for sure recommend Tim.

Tim and his wife Jan were perfect! I can't even start to remember how many people my husband and I talked to before we came across these two. I was sooo scared we weren't going to find anyone that we felt comfortable with to marry us. The first time we met with them we clicked right away. They are laid back, down to earth, and can find the humor in life. You can't go wrong with those qualities in my book. Tim worked with us to find a fitting ceremony. We were looking for something that wasn't overly religious, but that had certain spiritual and emotional depth to it. He never once made us feel like our only choices were "religious" or "legal". On the day of they showed up on time and helped us with things we weren't thinking of. Jan did a wonderful job being a calm director of events, telling us when and where to go. They felt more like family than somene we hired to marry us. If you are looking for someone who realizes a ceremony doesn't HAVE to be religious to have heart then they will be a good fit for you.

We're so happy we used Chaplain Tim Brooks at our wedding!! He attended the rehearsal dinner and gave us all some MUCH needed direction! He's very laid back, and made the whole experience fun. He offered some wonderful suggestions on how to create the perfect ceremony for us. He allowed us a lot of input into the sermon itself. We were able to mold it so it was very representative of who Michael and I were, emotionally and spiritually, as a couple. His wife Jan, was working diligently, quietly in the background, making sure everything was going as planned. I couldn't have been more pleased with the situation, and it helped to make our wedding day just want we wanted.... one of the most special days in our lives... one that we'll never forget.

Tim and Jan helped to make our wedding very special. They were both very helpful in preparing for the ceremony and even met with us in person well in advance to go over exactly what type of ceremony we wanted. Tim understood what we wanted and made it happen. It was great to have Jan there to act a director of the ceremony; she made sure every thing went smoothly and everyone looked beautiful before heading down the aisle! I highly recommend their services to anyone looking for a beautiful ceremony and wonderful group of people to work with.

Chaplain Brooks gave us some vow and ceremony ideas that other couples had used in this situation, and I was able to edit them and incorporate some of my own to really make the ceremony unique to my family. Chaplain Brooks was very professional, and I appreciated his willingness and encouragement to let us decide exactly how we would like our ceremony performed. It was lovely!

Our wedding was very non-traditional (ie., private ceremony, backyard of our current house, intimate family only, entire procession became incorporated in ceremony - encircled witnesses). It was also composed of very multi-ethnic, religious, and spiritual beliefs (ie., christian / catholic / shinto / buddhist / prostestant / methodist). Tim was absolutely wonderful - a master at helping bring not only us (the bride and groom) together, but the union of our two families. We had met with us - to really understand our vision - and help us reflect upon what our wedding - and life - would be - and what we wanted for ourselves. Even after 11 years, he is still a master - listening - guiding - bringing insite, as our life continues to be enriched and fulfilled. I cannot thank him enough.

Rev Brooks officiated my wedding on July 5th, 2014. We planned the event from out of town so our only communication with him prior to the rehearsal was by phone and email. He was wonderful the whole way through the process and provided valuable feedback and input when it came time to write out our ceremony. Our dogs were our ring bearer and flower girl and of course they acted up a bit during the ceremony. Rev Brooks had the perfect on the spot response when I had to snap at the dogs during the reading of The Art of Marriage. His wife was very gracious and made herself available before, during, and after the ceremony to help us out in any way she could. He helped keep us calm and relaxed with whispered words during the ceremony and his pleasant demeanor. We could not have been more pleased with our experience and I would highly recommend him for anyone in need of an officiant for any event type.

I knew I wanted a woman to officiate our wedding and Melissa Brooks was an excellent choice. She was extremely receptive to doing a very personal ceremony that was completely about my husband and me rather than focusing on religion. She was organized with lots of prepared language, but customized it with our stories and all the other little details we wanted. We were, of course, pleased with how the ceremony went, but several of our guests also commented on how amazing and engaging Melissa was. Plus, she was very good at calming nerves and making sure we both breathed during the planning process and on the big day. She is highly recommended!

I appreciate such a nice review. I say this especially in light of the fact that this was the first wedding that I officiated in which all of our planning was done on Skype and we met face-to-face for the first at the rehearsal. My wife and I had a great time working with Katie and Dave, their entire family and wedding party. As many weddings as I do, this was one of the highlights.

I appreciate the affirmation of this couple and do not always expect to receive all 5’s. However I received the initial call from the groom at 10am and arranged my schedule in order to celebrate their wedding at 4pm that day. Also, given that they had a simple ceremony at their home and I could do it on the way home from my full-time position, my fee was about half what I normally charge. I just found the scoring curious.

It was perfect, I didn't get to tell Melissa but my mom heard every word and told me it was the best service she had attended in a long time.

We had a wonderful fall wedding thanks to Gabe Combs. He made each step of the process of developing a personalized ceremony stress-free. Gabe was very professional. He got to know my fiancee' and I asking questions we had not considered to ensure our ceremony was personalized. Gabe was very accommodating, not only his willingness to travel but also in his willingness to meet all of our demands. Out of all of the services we chose for our wedding my husband and I agreed the best service we received for the value was Gabe. I would recommend Gabe to a friend.

We booked Jeffery Hon as our officiant and were extremely pleased. He presented some very thoughtful and unique suggestions and pointed us towards some very touching readings. He responded to our emails and phone calls and attended our rehearsal...he even arrived early! On the day of the wedding, he was dressed in a very nice black suit with a tie that matched our wedding colors, just a nice little touch that I never would've thought to ask someone to do for us. He spoke so clearly and with such poise. My husband and I were just so very pleased with him, he made our day perfect and helped put us both at ease.

Tim was great! He was very easy to work with, and very responsive. I wanted to piece together my own ceremony, Tim sent me several diffrent ceremonies (religious and non) to review. He has a good speaking voice, and projects well (which turned out to be good since our dj forgot the wireless mic). No complaints on people not being able to hear! At the service, he had his wife with him, and she was also very nice and helpful with last minute details. I would highly recommend Tim!

Rev. Tim does really good job at letting you pick out the ceremony you want. You're not forced to have anything certain said or done. Him and his wife are very professional and very well priced!

Rev Tim was great to work with. We did not know him prior to our initial consultation, but his website along with other user reviews gave us reasonable assurances that he would do a good job. After we met with him and his wife the first time, any doubts that we had quickly vanished. In particular, we wanted to have a non-religious wedding and Tim was very accommodating to whatever format we wanted. Throughout the process, Tim was responsive and always got back to us shortly after we phoned or emailed. We also appreciated him providing us several examples of different wedding ceremonies and vows; this assisted us in our process to create our own custom ceremony. Lastly, the use of an iPad rather than paper notes was a nice touch and Tim's wife was also very helpful the day of the ceremony. Call Rev Tim, you won't be disappointed!

My wife and I had our original officiant back out on us three months before the wedding, and Tim was kind enough to work us into his schedule and help us out. Him and his wife are both nice and helpful, but there did end up being a few issues with the ceremony that bothered us (non of which should have been a problem as he was reading it off an ipad). Right at the start, he accidentally pronounced my wife's name 'Daniel' instead of Danielle, and later asked her if she would take me to be her 'wife for life'... both just slips of the tongue, but still unfortunate.

Two bigger issues... First, when he sent us the proof text before the ceremony, we edited in, and stated we wanted to have, different vows for each of us to say. He said he got it, but in the actual ceremony he still had us say the same thing, disappointing my wife.. Second, at the rehearsal, he noticed he didn't have a ring exchange in the ceremony and said he would put a basic one in. My wife and I are both secular, so we specifically told him not to include 'god' or 'lord' when he did that, and he said no problem. However, during the ring exchange he said 'lord bless these rings' against our request.

Tim and his wife were pleasant to work with and overall the day was still amazing, but for the most important part, the ceremony, there were definitely some bugs that should have been prepared better for, and unfortunately it's those little things that tend to stick with you the most.

Well Melissa started out great....She was reasonably priced. I spoke with her on several occasions. She sent me a listing of wedding cermons to choose. I spoke with her the day before the ceremony and we had a very good conversation and understanding. She suggested that I change a few things with the unity candle and the precession that was included in the ceremony. Melissa's suggestings turned out to be a great idea. She came into our wedding and took charge and did a great job initially.... However, the most important thing I asked of her she goes and do the opposite. I don't know if it was intentionally but I felt that out of all the things too forget she should have not forgotten that one. It totally turned into a nightmare toward the end with her services. She confronted me about a couple of things, including payment in front of everyone. I felt that she was unprofessional at that point and could of pulled myself and/or my husband to the side to speak with us about any concerns. She quickly realized after she "aggressively" attack me about the situation, what we had discussed the night before. She apologized and then quickly asked me for payment. I would of surely tipped her and given her a great review but her mistake was so big that it took away from the positives of her services. I was truly betrayed and hurt by how she reacted at the end of the ceremony. I would "NOT" recommend her services to anyone. She absolutely did the one thing I asked her "NOT" to do and then unprofessionally demanded monies... Not to mention we had given her a deposit earlier and she was asking for the total amount for payment, not subtracting the deposit.. Again, I don't know if it was intentionally but it sure didn't make us happy.

Simple to Elegant Weddings responded with the following comments:

I am truly sorry if you feel that you did not receive professionalism and value in your choice with us. Throughout the time I was with you, I did all that I could to make sure your day was as flawless as possible even to the extent of tracking down and tying the bows on the chairs for the parents of the bride when the venue had missed those two. I am sorry if you feel I was brash about asking for payment, but after the ceremony started almost 40 minutes late and overhearing that you were going to be gone for quite a while for pictures, I wanted to get that taken care of in order to not disrupt your evening and still make it on time to the other commitments I had made for that evening. I thought we had walked a few steps away from the others, so again, I am sorry if you felt that you were “attacked”. That was not ever my intention. Even after our wonderful conversation our night before, I did forget about the deposit as that is a new practice, and about your other concern. I assure you that neither of your concerns were done maliciously or intentionally. I did not want to spend much time before the ceremony checking in as it seemed you were behind in getting ready. I was trying the best I could to give you the time you needed and I sincerely apologize for not meeting your expectations. I would be happy to speak with you about refunding your deposit if you would so desire. I wish nothing but the best for you two. Blessings to you both.
