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 was Ah-mazing! He made sure our day went so smoothly and perfect!! He does this awesome thing where the bride and groom send their story of their relationship and why they love each other. Then at the ceremony he puts it together and reads it. It was so much fun and even though we got it all to him last minute he was beyond prepared.

Mark was amazing. All our friends and family commented on how he made the ceremony very personal. The I Love you because was really special. Everyone said it was the nicest ceremony they had been to. We wanted short and sweet, and that is what he did, but perfect in everyway.
Thank you and if you have to use an officiant Mark is the man!!

We could not have asked for anyone better to have married us!! My husband and I were beyond happy to have him apart of our big day! We had a tragic event right before our wedding and Mark had said some kind words to our family and friends before I had walked out asking them to basically smile for our big day even though everyone was full of heavy hearts. He was very sincere. The one thing we asked for was a ‘fun’ ceremony. We did not want something serious and painful to sit through. Mark was perfect! Almost every picture we have from our ceremony, my husband and I are smiling big and laughing. Mark does a thing called “I love you because…” and reads the reasons you each love each other, it was a hit! Mark arrived early and came to my husband and I to go over details since we were unable to have a rehearsal, and asked how we were doing with everything going on. Our friends and family all laughed and commented later how we had a wonderful officiant and he could not have made our ceremony more perfect! He was very natural when he spoke and perfectly transitioned from serious to funny.

Thank you!

Tuesday and Ray Davenport

As Mark spoke about as we met with him originally, he was really flexible to what we wanted to do for our ceremony. We had a really unique situation where the ceremony was in 2 languages (Portuguese and English), and he was really helpful and open it to incorporate the Portuguese part of the ceremony with a Brazilian friend that was alternating languages with him.

Mark was always very good responding to emails and phone calls while planning for the wedding. He took care of everything and we had a really beautiful and unique ceremony.

Everyone loved the ceremony!! It wasn't "stuffy" and it really had the feel of "us" and not just like every other ceremony and that's what we wanted. Everyone loved the "I love you because..." and was a nice touch of us. He really set the tone for our wedding and can't thank Mark enough.

Mark went above and beyond our expectations for an officiant. He made our ceremony personalized and felt that he really took the time to get to know us. Afterwards, many of our guests came up to my husband and I and complimented us on how the ceremony went. It was beautiful and I would definitely recommend anyone to use Mark if you want a fun, personalized ceremony!

Mark was the hit of our wedding. It was the perfect combination of seriousness and humor in just the right length of time. Mark was able to incorporate his humor at the perfect time which had guests stay attentive. I loved our ceremony. It was absolutely perfect. Everyone raved about Mark and the ceremony. I highly recommend him. Thank you Mark for making this special day for Josh and I so memorable and perfect in every way.

As Mother of the Bride, I could not have been happier with Mark Culbertson. When we first met him at Starbucks to discuss the opportunity, he set me and my daughter at ease. He is such a nice man and he has a wonderful sense of humor. He mixed the seriousness of marriage commitment with the right amount of laughter and lightheartedness.
Our daughter's wedding was absolutely beautiful, and the ceremony itself was truly the highlight due to Mark. Tears of joy for all!
Thank you, Mark - from the bottom of my heart! Kathi (MOB) :)

Since we were from Chicago, but getting married in Scottsdale, we didn't have a clue who we would get to marry us. My fiance found Mark online and from the first phone call knew he was the perfect choice to conduct our ceremony. Mark helped us develop the best script for our vows and helped make it feel very personal all the way through. He even gave us a wonderful unique idea for the ceremony that will now be a tradition for us at every anniversary. My friends and family told us it was the best ceremony they had ever seen.

I highly recommend Mark to officiate your wedding.

Reverend Culbertson did a beautiful job for our wedding ceremony on May 30th 2014. He was very professional from the first time I contacted him. Never having met him, he worked with my fiancé and I through email and phone conversations to make sure that he had enough information about the two of us in order to effectively perform the services. The day of we met him 1/2 before the ceremony and we felt like we had known him for a long time! He makes you feel very comfortable and at ease. I would recommend him for any new bride to be! Thank you Mark for making us feel so special.
