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 the best. He worked with us to have the perfect ceremony that everyone who attended loved. He brought our story about how we met to life, the “I love you becauses” were so fun for the both of us and they were a real crowd pleaser. He worked with us before the big day and gave us options of what our ceremony could include and allowed us to pick exactly what we wanted without feeling pressured to do something else.

Thank you Mark for helping to make our day perfect, I could not have asked for a better ceremony.

We found Mark online and after reading his glowing reviews, met with him for coffee. After that, we didn’t need to meet with anyone else! He is so quick to respond and, as a bride, reliable communication is so important. He is kind, professional, and reliable. I also loved the fact that he is a principal because my (now) husband is a teacher!

Mark helped us customize our ceremony while still providing his advice and insight. I liked that he provided multiple options to include in the ceremony, but was also open to requests that we had. I appreciated the fact that he showed up early on the wedding day and took time to meet with both the groom and me ahead of time to give us a run-down of how things would go. Our ceremony was so, so special. The 'I Love You Because' is his signature feature and it made our ceremony unique and personal. Everyone complimented our ceremony, which made people laugh and cry. I am still getting compliments to this day. Honestly, I wouldn't have changed a thing. Thank you, Mark, for being such an important part of our special day!

Mark was the perfect officiant for our wedding! He was fantastic from the first communication. He was prompt, responsive, professional, easy to work with and an overall nice guy. He let us be specific about the small details we wanted to include and was fantastic at giving great suggestions for the areas we were unsure about. He did not push anything and let us create what we wanted, while using his experience to help create the perfect ceremony. He used our story and created the perfect blend of seriousness and laughter in our ceremony. We could not have asked for a better officiant. So many of our friends and family members came up to us at the reception to let us know how much they enjoyed the ceremony. They told us that Mark was "fantastic" and that they both laugh and cried and loved his message about marriage. I would wholeheartedly recommend Mark as an officiant for a great wedding! We are so grateful to have had you as part of our special day Mark, thank you!!

Mark is a fantastic officiant. With my wedding being a destination event, I had phone interviews with a few different companies to provide this service. Mark is charming and funny and has great public speaking skills. I knew right away that I wanted him as our officiant. From start to finish, he helped us plan in detail until we felt comfortable. He also provided different options/ideas when we were unsure of the content. After the ceremony, we received many compliments on Mark! I would highly recommend Mark for your wedding!

Mark is absolutely incredible. In the days following our wedding, my husband and I could not stop commenting about how perfect our ceremony was and how grateful we were to have Mark officiate. His rates are more than fair and he is worth every penny. We knew we wanted our ceremony to feel special and personable, but were lost as to how to do so. Mark met with us before we booked him and discussed our different options. The next day he had a ceremony draft written and we worked together to figure out what we'd like to keep or get rid of. We decided a bit last minute that we would feel more comfortable if he were there for our rehearsal, and he was gracious about attending and walked us through every detail. He made us feel at ease with what we needed to do and checked in on us the day of our wedding before the ceremony. We received so many compliments on how beautiful our ceremony was and I know we owe a large part of that to Mark. If you're on the fence, don't be! You won't regret having him be a part of your special day.

My husband and I were spending our anniversary weekend in Scottsdale and I wanted to surprise him with renewing our vows. I found Mark online and he was awesome. He was quick, flexible and easy to work with. He suggested the LOVE statue location, which was fabulous. Mark's words during the ceremony were spot on and his warmth and authenticity is off the charts. I highly recommend Mark!

Wow I can not express how happy we were having Mark as our officiant! Me and my now husband has no idea what we wanted and he talked us through all if it, and was extremely patient. He put so much of us and our personality into the ceremony, people were raving about it. All we heard all night was how it was one of the BEST ceremonies they have ever been too. Inspiring both tears and laughs in the perfect ratio :) we could have asked for better.

Love - Mr. and Mrs. Lefebvre

Mark did an amazing job officiating our wedding in April. We met with him a few times before the wedding and really enjoyed chatting with him. He is a super relaxed guy and really took the time to understand our relationship and individual personalities. So many people came up to me after the wedding and raved about the ceremony. My husband and I highly recommend Mark and are so glad he was a big part of our special day!

The most amazing officiant ever! We received so many compliments on what a great job Mark did. He did everything he could to make our ceremony unique and special. We incorporated things like a wine ceremony, group vow, passing of the rings, etc. He made it the most memorable day with our fun quirkiness added! We invited him and his wife to our reception, they are the sweetest couple ever :).
