Congratulations on your Wedding!
This is YOUR day, the day you will say "I do".
It has to be perfect.
I understand!

Your wedding is one of the most treasured experiences of your life. I would love to sit down with you, hear your stories, wedding dreams, and together design your dream ceremony.

About Me:

First and foremost, I'm a family man committed to my bride for 10+ years and have two wonderful children. I love my family and very much understand the commitment you are about to make.

I'm Reverend Mark Culbertson, an independent, non-denominational wedding officiant. You may call me Mark ...its more my preference, but please do what is comfortable for you.

Although I am fairly new to wedding wire, I am one of the oldest (but youngest in age) wedding officiants in the Valley! I was ordained in 1998 and performed my first wedding that same year! Since then I have joyfully made hundreds of couples dreams come true of a stress-free, personal and perfect wedding ceremony. Whether your ceremony is in a church, your backyard, on the top of a mountain in Sedona, on a hot air balloon or at a leading Resort, or even on a jet ski.... whatever your dream is, I have the experience!

I love humor and will provide the perfect combination of laughter and seriousness to your day. I promise to leave you laughing and crying (happy tears of course) at the same time!

Mark deserves 10 STARS!!! He responds to emails quickly, and is early to the wedding to make sure everything goes perfectly. We looked at a lot of different people to officiate our wedding, and Mark was the one we went with. He is very friendly and attentive to all your needs. The length of the ceremony was perfect, and all our guests loved it. I highly recommend him for your wedding.

Mark was an amazing officiant! We were having a destination wedding in Arizona, and didn't have time to interview multiple vendors. We met with Mark once, and hired him. He surpassed our expectations!! He was AMAZiING! He was able to customize our ceremony for us, and our guests loved it. They all mentioned how intimate the ceremony was, and their favorite part was the, "I Love You Because." Multiple guests came up to me during the reception and said that our ceremony was the best ceremony they've ever been to. He was so easy to work with, very responsive, and very calm. He also was very funny, and kept the audience engaged. I would recommend Mark 100%!!

Mark was absolutely amazing! We met only once but he was able to capture and deliver our stories and love for each other beautifully at our ceremony. He is a true professional and we would absolutely recommend him 1000 times over. Our guests were stunned with how personal he was able to make our ceremony and many said this is the way they want their children to be married. Make sure you take advantage of his unique “Our Story” and “I Love You Because”! It was an amazing experience hearing our perfectly blended stories and I Love You Because’s for the first time at the altar. You will not be disappointed if you choose Mark as your officiant!

We had a destination wedding in Scottsdale earlier this year and found Mark online. After one phone call I knew he would be perfect for the job. We met once about 6 weeks before the wedding and then emailed back and forth material for the ceremony. It went perfectly (laughter & tears) and I can't recommend him enough! Thanks again!!

I can't say enough good things about Mark! He was so wonderful to work with. He perfectly captured our relationship and both our personalities in the ceremony even though we only met once in person. Our guests all raved over his expert delivery and just how much they loved the ceremony, especially our story and the I Love You Becauses (you have to do these- it's the best part!). The ceremony was so personal and unique and he delivered it so smoothly. He put our nerves at ease the minute he got there and walked us through what we needed to do. We couldn't have asked for a more perfect, fun-loving ceremony. I would recommend Mark a thousand times over to anyone getting married!!

Mark was a wonderful officiant! We had so many compliments on our unique, personal ceremony! His calming voice and delivery was perfect. He met with us twice before the big day and went over every detail, although with our busy schedules he was also easy to communicate with via email. I would highly recommend him for your wedding ceremony!

Mark was great to work with! We planned our wedding cross-country and actually only met him the day of the ceremony. Even with the lack of face time meetings he was very professional and responsive. One of my concerns with having a non-denominational wedding was trying to find ways to incorporate other readings and blessings. Mark had great options and was open to hear our thoughts. He is very kind, lighthearted, and helps remind you to be in the moment (I'm sure we all know how stressful planning can be :P) Mark's cadence and delivery is perfect and everyone commented on how beautiful the ceremony was.

Mark was our officiant and he was AMAZING! We loved working with him - he made us feel comfortable from our initial meeting, was extremely responsive to our emails and feedback, and helped us create a perfect ceremony. We got multiple comments from guests that ours was the most genuine ceremony they had ever seen - we have mark to thank for that!

Mark was my officiant for my wedding last week. I cannot recommend him enough. Mark was very easy to communicate with and always responded to emails very quickly. On the day of the wedding, he arrived early and sat down with my now husband and I and went over everything again. He had such a calm demeanor and really put my nerves at ease. The ceremony was absolutely perfect. He kept it the perfect length. The 'I love you because' portion that served as our vows made the ceremony really unique and special. We have received so many compliments on Mark and the wonderful ceremony he performed. I can't thank Mark enough for marrying us. I couldn't have asked for anything more. He beyond exceeded my expectations.
