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 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 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.

Mark was a great officiant for our wedding! I originally grew up Catholic and my husband has no specific faith, so we wanted a wedding that would fit us! He was so friendly and funny, my entire family loved him! He communicated regularly with me prior to the wedding and we were able to meet face-to-face to plan everything in advance! My husband and I randomly found him, but I would highly recommend him to any one! We we're so happy to have him be a part of our special day!

Tim and Jan were fantastic to work with. They were completely open to our ideas and our ceremony was exactly how we'd imagined. They were always on time and kept everyone on track at the rehearsal. Jan was a HUGE help getting everything organized the day of our wedding too. She helped organize our bridal party for the ceremony, worked with the DJ to make sure everyone entered at the correct time, and even made sure our personal items were in a safe place during all of the chaos.

We recommend Simple to Elegant Weddings without a doubt!

Laura Phillips was our officiant and she was amazing! From our first meeting, she was welcoming and really listened to our wants/needs for our ceremony. She was able to incorporate a ring warming ceremony and other small details that really made our ceremony special. We had so many compliments from our guests about how beautiful it was!

Gabe Combs was amazing. From the moment my husband and I met him, we knew we wanted him to officiate our wedding. My husband and I wanted a non-traditional ceremony that had our own touches to it, yet a ceremony that our traditional families would appreciate and approve of. Gabe did a wonderful job of combining the two. He gave us a huge list of electronic copies of readings, etc for us to look at and decide which we wanted to use for our wedding to make it our own. It was super easy to do and made our ceremony very personalized. Gabe had great ideas for our ceremony but also took all of our ideas and incorporated them as well. He is also a very funny guy and made our ceremony fun all while being serious. We definitely had some laughs during the ceremony...and some happy tears! My husband and I couldn't have asked for a better officiant and a better ceremony that fit "us". And....we got SO many compliments from our guests and even our traditional families about how amazing Gabe was and what a great ceremony he put on. If you are looking for an officiant....we would definitely recommend Gabe Combs!

I would highly recommend Mark. He made sure our day was special. We wanted something other than a unity candle or sand ceremony. He recommended a wine box ceremony. It was just what we were looking for. He made sure to go through every detail, just to make sure it was how we wanted our ceremony to go.

He loves what he does and he is interested in your relationship; who you are as a couple and individuals. He genuinely cares for you and cares enough to make sure your marrying for good reasons. His speech during our ceremony fit us perfectly. That shows right there he listens, pay attention and cares. Love that it didn't feel like a cookie cutter type wedding, it was made for us. Thank you Tim.

Rev, Kristin Dow did an amazing job officiating our wedding. Her price of $200 included a consultation, attending rehearsal, and the wedding day. We chose not to write our own vows so she provided us with a great selection of "mix and match" choices for each part of the ceremony. She brought it all together seamlessly during the ceremony. She orchestrated the rehearsal and did a great job. The next day for the wedding she arrived right on time. I highly recommend Rev. Kristin Dow.

Rev. Mark was amazing! He worked with us on short notice, allowed us to have a customized ceremony (and also provided templates that other people had used for their ceremonies for inspiration). We could not recommend him highly enough!
