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 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.

Mark did a fantastic job officiating our wedding ceremony! He is a true professional and worked with us to create a ceremony that was fun and unique while maintaining a traditional feel. He’s very good at what he does and helped everything go smoothly at the rehearsal and on the wedding day. He helped with everything from getting and submitting the marriage license to making sure the wedding party knew exactly what to do. He was funny and sincere without stealing the spotlight. We would highly recommend choosing Mark as your officiant!

Mark performed the perfect ceremony for my husband and I- our friends and family were laughing, crying, and eagerly listening to everything Mark said. His explaining of the significance of rings was the best I had ever heard. He works collaboratively with the couples so we had a lot of say in what was read and included in our ceremony which was awesome. I would recommend him to anyone without reservation.

Mark was great! He made it very easy for us and made us very comfortable with the ceremony topic. He had great ideas that were outside the typical boring traditional stuff which we DIDN'T want!

Only small suggestion was being a windy outside wedding, he could have spoke a touch louder for the guests to hear better but most did so wasn't a huge deal.

Overall he made the potentially nervous moments, very easy! Thanks Mark!

Mark was recommended to us by a friend to officiate our wedding ceremony and we couldn't have been happier that we went with him! He made the ceremony personal by sharing our story and why we love each other. We didn't need a lot of "fluff" in the ceremony but it was important that it seemed personal and incorporated our faith. Mark was able to do both. Many people after, including my parents, said that they loved hearing our story (even a few funny portions) and reasons why we love each other. They felt it was sweet and included them into how we really feel for each other. Also, after our ceremony I found out one of our friends also used Mark for the wedding a few years ago. They also loved him and it brought them memories of when they said "I Do". She said it made her cry because the vows were so sweet but reminded her of them. Thanks, Mark!

Three words sum up how me and my husband feel about Mark, we love him! When we were looking for officiants, it was really important for us to find someone that offered premarital counseling. Not only does Mark offer it, but he's great at it! We were impressed with him during our first meeting and booked him right away. Premarital counseling took place over 6 sessions and that's where all 3 of us really got to know each other. Those conversations during counseling obviously really helped tell a story during our ceremony. We had many people come up to us, as well as our parents raving about Mark. It made the start of our marriage extra special having such a personal ceremony to think back on.
