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

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!!

We loved working with Tim and Jan Brooks! They were so nice, and they really helped us think through all the tiny details of the wedding ceremony. If not for them, I know our day would not have gone as smoothly as it did!

Mark Willis did my mom's ceremony back in October 2014, that's how we were referred to him. He was terrific and very nice. He listened to us and made sure that everything we wanted in the ceremony would be included.

Reverend Melissa Brooks did a wonderful job as our officiant. The groom and myself live halfway across the country, so we had to meet via Skype- after our first consultation, we knew we were in good hands and immediately sent a signed contract so we could lock her down for our wedding date!

She supplied ceremony ideas that we were able to piece together and modify to fit exactly what we envisioned- she was so comforting the day of the wedding and extremely professional!

We had a lot of guests comment on how great she was and I can't imagine anyone doing a better job!

Thanks Melissa :)

Gabe Combs married my wife Sarah and I on the 13th of December - and I could not have expected or asked for a better officiant.

We did not have a typical wedding, we surprised our family and friends at our home and Gabe was very open to this idea and actually was able to pull from other similar events he had done to help us - a true bonus there.

Throughout the entire process of meeting him and discussing what we would like he was very communicative and prompt with items and details that we needed to know. I would recommend Gabe to anyone getting married and if they were a friend or family member I would almost insist that they get in touch with him before making final decisions.

He made a special day that much better!

A couple of months before our wedding we contacted Gabe Combs and he was very prompt in responding to our contact and setting up a time to meet. When we sat down with Gabe it felt like we already knew him. He was very personable and obviously very experienced in the duties of an Officiant. He gave us many suggestions without ever pushing an idea on us. He wanted us to have the wedding exactly as we envisioned it and was there to help with any questions we had. I feel we were truly lucky in landing Gabe as our Officiant and I would recommend him to anyone.

Rev Tim Brooks was absolutely amazing! When we met with him for the first time, we knew immediately that this is who we wanted to marry us. He was so personable and knew exactly what we wanted. He has a natural way of just making you feel at ease. His wife was with us as well and she was such a major help in coordinating things for us. She did so much running around for us the day of our wedding. We truly believe that Rev Tim and his wife were such a major part in making our wedding going so smoothly. Our wedding guests were complimenting us regarding Rev Tim. He's was awesome!!!

I had the perfect wedding ceremony. The officiant, Gabe Combs, was exactly what both my husband and I had dreamed of. While we are both spiritual, we were not looking for a ceremony that was just scripture-based. Gabe provided the perfect medium to what we were looking for; he tailored the service to exactly what we wanted. And talk about a likable guy! We had so many people come up to us after the wedding to ask who he was because his message really hit home for many people. In fact, his words of love and life helped two brothers who weren't speaking mend their relationship. I would recommend Gabe to anyone and everyone (from highly religious to not religious at all); he will provide you with a ceremony that you will never forget. He made our wedding so special!
