Mark was absolutely fantastic! We could not have been happier with the whole process!
We met with a few other officiants before meeting Mark, but as soon as we met him, we were certain that Mark was the right person to marry us. He is very easy to talk to and has a wonderful sense of humor!
We met with Mark again a little closer to the date of our wedding- he was very accommodating to meet with our schedule. At this meeting we talked openly about our expectations and about us as a couple. He was truly interested in what we had to say.
The day of: He was very prompt and helpful in making sure that we had everything set. The service was fantastic! Just the right length, sentiment and humor. I had many friends and family members comment on how fantastic the ceremony was, and just the right balance. They also commented on how perfectly he captured our personalities and brought in things that mattered to us.

We could not have been happier with the whole experience!

Thank you so much for everything Mark! You were amazing!

Mark with “The Perfect Wedding” was passionate, emotional, and a whole lot of fun. We were thrilled. We were scared. We were indifferent. We were a whole lot of everything all at once.

We can't thank Mark enough for being a wonderful and fantastic addition to our wedding day. We truly appreciate all of the effort and thoughtfulness that he put into our ceremony. Not only did our simple ceremony blow away the two of us, but we had virtually every single attendee tell us “that was the best ceremony ever” and “you could really tell that Mark cared about you two” and “WOW, your wedding officiate did an amazing job.”

To be honest, the quotes could just keep coming. Mark was the best person that we could have ever asked for. He was easy to work with, extremely detail oriented, calm, enthusiastic, structured, and passionate, it was an utterly remarkable experience.

With all the last minute chaos Mark made us feel calm and focused.

Thanks again so much Mark. We will always have great memories of working with you.

Kent & Rosa Maria

PS. Mark did such a great job we will fly him next year to officiate our wedding on the Pacific Coast Beach in Nicaragua 

When my fiance and I decided to host an out-of-town wedding, once of the first things we did was look for an officiant. Being from Houston, we really had no idea how we would find someone in AZ that would bring a sense of authenticity to our ceremony. We came across Pastor Faul's website and arranged to meet with him when we visited next. From the second we met him, we knew we had chosen the perfect officiant. He was genuinely interested in knowing us, and guided us through creating a ceremony timeline. He was very responsive to our questions and always punctual. On the day of the ceremony, most of our guests were surprised to find that we had only met him once before. They all felt that the ceremony and the way Pastor Faul personalized it for us, made it seem like he had known us for a long time. We couldnt have asked for anything more.

Pastor Mark Faul is amazing! He officiated our wedding and we couldn't have asked for a better ceremony. He tailored our ceremony just how we wanted it, and made suggestions that helped us tremendously. In addition, the way he performed our ceremony, you would have thought he had known us both for quite a while, which is not the case. He's just THAT good. I highly recommend him to anyone looking for an officiant/pastor for their wedding.

Mark was Amazing. My husband and I live overseas because of the military and Mark was willing to work with us every step of the way. He met with us right before the wedding and we knew right away that he was exactly what we wanted in an officiant. He really took all the Stress out of the ceremony We told him what we had envisioned and He made our wedding exactly that! We also wanted to include my daughter in the ceremony as well and Mark made it happen! My wedding was everything I dreamed of and more thanks to Mark!

Pastor Mark officiated recently at our son's wedding. He met two or three times with our son and his fiancé prior to their wedding to get to know them a little bit. The marriage ceremony itself was heartfelt and sincere, with Pastor Mark offering words of support and encouragement to the wedding couple to remind them that the meaning of love would help them through the years ahead. It was a very lovely service, and I would recommend Pastor Faul to any couple contemplating marriage.

I give Pastor Mark Faul 5 out of 5. We met twice prior to our ceremony to go over what we wanted for our once-in-a-lifetime day. He was eager to learn who we were and what we were looking for. He let US choose the ceremony format instead of telling us what we "wanted." At the ceremony, he was on time which was very refreshing because earlier in the day, the hair and make-up lady my future wife used was 2 hours late. During the ceremony, he was professional, respectful, humorous, un-rushed, and calm. After the ceremony, I was told by everyone I spoke with that he did a fantastic job. We couldn't have asked for a better officiant and I recommend everyone who is looking for an officiant to contact Pastor Mark Faul for their ceremony.

We highly recommend Pastor Mark for any wedding. His calming presence, organized process, and thoughtful probing questions gave us confidence that he knew us as a couple. He sold us when he shared how we could make our ceremony personal without having to write our own vows. We told him we were nervous we would be cry babies the day of and he assured us not to worry- that he would get us to laugh and keep serenity in the moment.

The day of he did not disappoint. The ceremony was perfect. After it ended, we got numerous relatives and friends telling us our officiant was fantastic. I'm glad we got to share this day with him and be captured our personalities perfectly.

Our family was very impressed by his choice of words and the way ceremony flowed. He was funny but made it about us like he had known us forever. Long story short, he was a perfect find and I would recommend Mark!

We found Pastor Mark and a couple others on Eventwire.com, and after meeting with each one we really liked Pastor Mark the best. He was easy to talk to and was willing to do whatever kind of service we wanted, which we planned with him over a couple short sessions of meeting and getting to know each other. We were just wanting something short and sweet, and only had a small group of friends and family present. Pastor Mark showed up early as he said he would and had a very thoughtful, but short ceremony just as we wanted. We would definitely recommend him to our friends and family!

Mark was a pleasure to work with. We wanted a non-denominational ceremony and he delivered. In a pre-wedding meeting he got a few details from us and incorporated them into the ceremony to make it more personalized. He made the ceremony lighthearted and fun...although it was a nerve wracking time, his demeanor help keep us calm and collected. We wrote our own vows, and he had print outs of them that he handed to us when it was time to read - so we didnt have to carry them with us. Another small detail that I didn't notice until we go our pictures back, was that during our unity portion of the wedding and the big KISS he stepped to the side and was out of the pictures. That was a thoughtful act. He also stepped aside after he announced us "husband and wife" and started the recession, which again reflected in the pictures. I would have never thought of that, but it certainly made our pictures a little more special. Thanks Mark!

Pastor Mark was brilliant. We conducted a lot of our business via e-mail (we are in the UK) but we were able to meet with him in person a week before our wedding and everything went very smoothly.

Our event was 'unusual' in that we got married on top of a mountain in the Arizona desert - miles from civilization, but Mark was extremely reliable, flexible and professional and he played a large part in our memorable day going off without any problems whatsoever.

Afterwards our guests - without exception - commented on what a nice man Mark is.

We would happily recommend him to any/everyone.

Pastor Mark Faul was a delight to work with on my clients' wedding! He took the time to meet with them before the wedding to get to know them as a couple, in addition to talking with them about what they wanted for their wedding ceremony. My clients were looking to keep the ceremony lighthearted while not overlooking importance of their vows. Pastor Mark offered suggestions and generally guided them as they created the ceremony of their dreams! He incorporated many personal details into the service and kept the guests engaged and laughing.

As a professional meeting and event planner, I need vendors who are the best in their field and completely dependable. I couldn't have been happier in selecting Mark Faul and would gladly recommend him to anyone looking for an officiant.

Received a ton of compliments on Pastor Mark after our ceremony, people asked if we've known him for a while since the ceremony and his words were "so us" but nope met w/ him 2 x's and he just picked up on our relationship/personalities quick!! Loved it!! We wanted a simple, casual laid back meaningful ceremony (not long) but incorporated our kids a bit as well and he did it all perfectly!!!

My wife and I met with Pastor Mark on 3 separate occasions and every time he appeared caring, funny, and genuinely seemed interested in what we wanted out of our ceremony. He was very understanding to both my wife and I not being religious, so if you're worried about him providing a non-religious ceremony, don't be, he did great and says he's done numerous non-religious weddings. During the ceremony, he had great input and knew when to make our guests smile with a small joke. He included in the ceremony information my wife and I provided him during our meetings, which really personalized it. Since we decided to write our own vows, he was kind enough to review them and give some feedback. He also gave us one less thing to do by printing the vows out the morning of, so that he could have them for us during the ceremony. My wife and I could not have been happier with Pastor Mark.

Pastor Mark was our officiant for our wedding on March 22nd 2013 @ Noah's in Chandler. Mark was such a professional and we could not have asked for a better person to marry me and my husband. From our very first meeting mark asked questions that me and my wife had never really thought about asking each other. It was really refreshing to have someone interested in knowing how we both love each other and what love really means to us. Mark has a great sense of humor and I would highly recommend him to anyone getting married! Thank you Mark for making mine and my husbands wedding the most special day of our lives!

If a survey was done, I firmly believe that most if not all of our guests would have assumed that Pastor Mark was a friend of ours or known us for several years.....when in fact we met twice prior to the wedding and he extracted enough information in that short amount of time to tailor a fun, light-hearted, yet meaningful ceremony that represented Pam I well! I don't give out 5 stars liberally on a survey but based upon the feedback from our guests both young and old, male and female was so overwhelmingly positive that anything less than 5 stars would mis-represent Pastor Mark's services for our wedding.

Pastor Mark was absolutely great! He made our ceremony so memorable and really put in the extra oomph to make it our own instead of the traditional blah blah ceremony. It was light-hearted and witty yet serious and romantic! His response time to calls and emails were right on and he addressed all of our wants and concerns. His value is so unbeatable for the service we received from him! HIGHLY RECOMMED!

My husband is catholic and I am a non-denominational christian. Mark was a great choice for both of our needs. He was very professional and we loved his tailor made ceremony! We had meetings with him and he designed his speech and our ceremony based on our talks so it felt very personal! Definitely recommend Mark to anyone that doesn't want the same ceremony every other person before them has had!

From the first time we contacted Mark we knew he was the officiant we were looking for. His friendly personality makes you feel very confident and relaxed that everything will be taken care of, and it was. He performed a beautiful ceremony for us and we've had several compliments from guests about Mark and his words. We highly recommend Mark, we could not have been happier with our ceremony. Thanks Mark!!

Look no further for an officiant for your wedding! Trust me, you will not find anyone better. We don't have a local pastor so we were very nervous about finding an officiant to be part of such an important part of our life. The moment we met Pastor Mark Faul the first time, we were no longer nervous at all. Meet with him and you will see what we mean. He is very professional, yet still personable. He puts you at ease immediately.

He really took the time to get to know the two of us and our relationship so he could personalize our wedding. No one would have guessed we had just met him a few months prior. Every one of our guests commented on what an incredible job Pastor Mark did for our ceremony. He makes your wedding memorable not only for you, but also your guests.

He will mold your ceremony into exactly what you want it to be. He made it so personal and lightened it up just enough at moments when he knew we were about to lose it from all the emotion. Pastor Mark is a natural at this in every way!!

For your budget, you will not find a better deal for someone this wonderful! He could easily charge a lot more than he does. Don't trust the most important part of all your wedding planning to anyone but Pastor Mark. We promise you will be SO happy with your decision!

Pastor Mark truly gave us the perfect wedding and we couldn't be happier!

Mark maintained the utmost professionalism while keeping the humor flowing during my ceremony. The perfect words were said - it was like Mark had been on our journey of getting to know each other. He made the ceremony so personable - I couldn't help but smile throughout it all. The sprinklers did come on at our venue right in the middle of the ceremony-but not only did Mark keep hold of the rings - but put everyone at ease and brought them right back to the moment of tenderness for Brad and I. Thank you!

My husband and I both love Pastor Mark. We knew nothing about Officiants or how to choose one. I sort of blindly choose him and am so glad I did! He was very easy to get in touch with and very relaxed. Even my photographers said that he is their favorite officiant. He took care of sending in the marriage certificate and was very professional. Our families are both very traditional but we got married outside and even our families thought he was great! If you're not sure which Offician to choose Pastor Mark is your man.

We couldn't have been more impressed by his pre-wedding meeting where he took the time to get to know us on a personal level. He asked a lot of personal & prudent questions about "us" & tailored our ceremony & vows the way we had always imagined. After having met Mark & spending some time with him, we both were EXTREMEMLY happy with our selection for our Pastor on such an important day. With all the planning that goes on for a wedding, time is very precious. We would highly recommend Pastor Mark Faul to anyone. We are so glad that he was part of our special day.

My husband really appreciates him, and so do I. He added a little part for my daughter to get a necklace from us into the ceremony and even helped my husband keep it together before I got to the altar (he really appreciated that).

He was extremely professional, immediately answered any questions we had, and was very accommodating (he worked around our non-traditional work schedule) and was willing to travel 2 hours away to Sedona, AZ to marry us. He was also open to anything we wanted in our ceremony... and not to mention VERY FUNNY!!! He had everyone laughing at our ceremony. Things were serious when needed, but he knew just the right times to throw in a laugh to keep things light. HE WAS GREAT!!! He was such a pleasure to work with!

At the wedding, he was great. He was serious but also had a sense of humor. He made the ceremony personal to us and made it sound like he really knew us. We received numerous compliments about him and how nice he made the ceremony. I don't think our ceremony would have been the same without him! My recommendation is to go with him!

He even joked that I could walk down the aisle backwards on my hands and mime our vows if that's what we wanted. The second time we met with him he asked us a series of questions about us and our relationship and I didn't know what he was asking for... turns out he used it in the ceremony! He made it personal and humorus. Almost too humorus, as I was laughing through most of it! When I first started my search for officiants, he was actually the least expensive!

Our wedding included both a Hindu and a Christian ceremony happening on the same day. My concerns with going with an unknown officiant through the internet was terrifying, and I needed someone that could be taken serious by my Christian family, as well as accepting and open to the Hindu side of the wedding. From my experience, those do not often go hand in hand.

I found Pastor Mark on The Knot, and I was attracted to his flexibility of his ceremonies to suit your needs. He had some rave reviews, so I decided to email him. He was available, and he also emailed me within 24 hours! Great! Responding in such a timely manner alone took a huge weight off of my shoulders.

Since we were out of state, Pastor Mark took extra time with us over the phone to answer any questions and go over ceremony details. I also wanted to make sure we weren't getting someone that got certified for $50 online or something of the sort :-P Pastor Mark was kind enough to go over all of his background and training, which made me much more comfortable (and, no, it was not a $50 online certification).

We were unable to meet in person until the day of the rehearsal. However, in the short time we had with Pastor Mark, his attentiveness and quick understanding gave him enough information to personalize our ceremony. Way to go Mark!

The ceremony went beautifully! It was short, sweet, funny, and personal. We had wanted my Aunts to read Bible verses at the ceremony and that was overlooked during the ceremony. To his credit, it was the most last minute planning on our part, and I don't think we ever went over the final details with him before the ceremony began. Regardless, he did the readings beautifully, and my Aunts were just fine with not having to read in front of so many people :-P

Thank you Pastor Mark for easing my mind from the beginning, and making our day so special!

We were the other side of the spectrum...we just wanted a simple, small, non-traditional wedding with only our parents present. Mark gave us ideas & let us "build our own ceremony", but then gave guidance to help it flow. He noticed right away that the atmosphere was relaxed, and went with it. We enjoyed every moment because I wasn't a nervous bride. If we had to do it over again, we wouldn't change a thing.

Mark personalizes the wedding to make it fit your style. He takes the time to get the know the bride and groom before hand and makes the ceremony unique, funny, special and definitely memorable. I saw him marry 2 different couples (all friends of mine) and he was great each time. He did a terrific job at our ceremony too and many people commented on how nice of a sermon and ceremony he conducted. I HIGHLY recommend him. :)

He let us personalize our ceremony using our own vows, and different passages that we wanted included. He made light of the nervous and exciting time up at the alter and cracked a few jokes at times, which made our guests laugh.
