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!

INFO FOR OFFICIANT

What officiant services do you provide?
Civil Union, Interfaith Ceremony, Non-religious Ceremony, Single Religion Ceremony
What religious affiliations do you serve?
Christian (no denomination), Christian - Anglican, Christian - Baptist, Christian - Catholic, Christian - Episcopalian, Christian - Lutheran, Christian - Methodist, Christian - Mormon, Christian - Orthodox, Christian - Presbyterian, Christian - Quaker
Can you accommodate the hearing impaired?
No
Are you willing to perform a ceremony at a non-religious site?
Yes! I love to do weddings in any setting. Some of my favorites have been in a Hot Air Balloon and on a Jet Ski.
What is your attire for the ceremony?
Usually a suit and tie unless the bride requests something different.
Are you flexible in the wording used throughout the ceremony, including the vows?
Yes, we will make your ceremony exactly what you want it to be. The finished product will be what the wedding couple will call PERFECTION.
Do you allow the couple to write their own vows, if desired?
Yes, of course! This is their DREAM ceremony. Not mine. :-)
Do you have a list of readings pre-selected, from which the couple must choose?
I have some, but the couple doesn't have to choose from mine. It is all up to the wedding couple.
How long are your ceremonies?
Short and sweet or long and extensive. Again, every couple has their own idea of what their dream looks like. I will do what is desired.
Do you require that premarital counseling be done?
It is not required, but the couples who do premarital counseling with me think it was a wonderful addition to kick start their marriage!
Are you willing to perform pre-ceremony rehearsals?
Yes, I am. It often makes the bride feel much more at ease with the most important part of their wedding day. I highly suggest a rehearsal.
Do you supply a sound system?
I am able if enough notice is given.

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!!

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!

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.

Mark was amazing. He gave us so many options (without being overwhelming) and was able to make the ceremony unique to us. I have received compliment after compliment on how perfect our ceremony was. Many of my friends said that this was one of the best ceremonies they have attended. We were able to be ourselves and show some of our silly personalities while being heartfelt. I knew when I read his bio, I wanted him as our officiant and he lived up to all expectation. I could not imagine anyone but Mark being there on our special day.
