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 or venue. 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 region since 1980. 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 working as a Chaplain for two large Kansas City hospitals, Rev. Melissa has relocated to Omaha, Nebraska, where she is the Manager of Spiritual 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 also have a number of hand-selected, experienced and ordained clergy to whom we can refer you for those occasions when we are unavailable. 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 personal ceremony of your dreams.

Rev. Tim Brooks was absolutely wonderful to have as an officiant for both of our ceremonies. We decided to have both a full sized ceremony for all our family and friends, as well as a smaller, intimate ceremony for ourselves. The events were several months a part, however, Rev. Tim was more than happy to do both. His services were exactly what they needed to be, and he is extremely professional and experienced. You can not go wrong to chose him, as he can really help your ceremony be exactly what you want it to be. Would definitely work with again!

Rev Tim Brooks and his wife are amazing people. Very courteous, very friendly,very professional and very flexible. Everything we were looking for in a wedding officiant. We changed the timings 3 times with them and they were absolutely flexible, even though it was Valentines Day. The ceremony was very well done - everything we had imagined. An amazing couple to have had the honor of knowing. Thank you so much!

Mark Willis with Simple2Elegant was AMAZING. Definitely one of the easiest people to work with when planning our wedding. We live far from him so it was a challenge to meet in person, however, Mark made it work! He emailed, called, and kept us in the loop completely.

He provided us with multiple different types of ceremony/reading/vow ideas because we had no idea what to do; he can also give you ideas about where family should sit/what order people should walk in. It was VERY helpful. Once we had and idea of what to do, he took that idea and made our ceremony personal to us and what we wanted. Nothing about what Mark did/read for our wedding sounded scripted or standard. He tailored it to us completely! Mark made our day even more special because he was genuinely interested and really cared about what we wanted. If you are looking for an officiant that is fun, genuine, caring, and willing to work with you to make your date special, Mark Willis is the officiant to pick!

Mark was wonderful. He sent me many options for ceremonies and readings but I wanted to personalize our ceremony so he met with us a couple times to learn more about us. He was always responsive and helped guide us to do a wine box ceremony. We'd never heard of it but our guests raved afterward about how cool and how special that part of the ceremony was and we agree. Eric and I wrote our own vows so we were basically bawling like babies during the whole ceremony! Mark found a couple of moments to lighten the mood and make us and our guests laugh. We received many compliments about the great job Mark did and how our ceremony was so romantic. I highly recommend Mark. He also never judged us when I said I didn't want a super religious ceremony. He was respectful, professional and fun.

Reverend Mark Willis did an amazing job officiating our wedding at Longview Mansion. He was professional, personable, and consoling from the very first time we spoke. My then fiancé and I at the time were not very religious, and Reverend Willis was not pressuring or condescending when we decided to not include religious beliefs within our ceremony. He instead supported and embraced our idea of focusing on “love, family, and togetherness” as our ceremony theme with open arms. Rev. Willis even gave us the idea for both the rose and unity box ceremonies, which guests raved about throughout the night as “extremely unique and very romantic”. Thank you so much for being a part of our big day!

Mark is awesome! He made our wedding ceremony so special and tailored it perfectly for us. It was exactly as we wanted. The ceremony he wrote, specifically the vows, were incredibly beautiful and meaningful. So many of our guests commented on what a wonderful job he did. Not only were we happy with the ceremony, but he was great to work with even before the wedding itself. We had an initial meeting with him and felt like he really took the time to get to know us as a couple. After that meeting, we had no doubt we had chosen the right person. We couldn't be more pleased with Mark and are so grateful we had him officiate our ceremony.
