Mr. Solock was excellent! Punctual and professional! I would highly recommend him!Aug 20, 2018Verified
Mark was great! He was always very quick to respond to all of our questions and requests! He was willing to work with us on preparing the ceremony draft and we really loved his personal additions to the ceremony. He helped things go smoothly and was willing to meet with us ahead of time, without much of a heads up. We were very happy with our ceremony, it couldn't be more perfect and our family all seemed to agree! I would highly recommend Mark as your officiant. Thanks Mark!!Jul 30, 2018Verified
I wanted something quiet and personal at my home and Mark gave us exactly that! Very professional and I absolutely loved every word he spoke at our ceremony! It was beautiful!Jun 25, 2018Verified
Mark was great at accommodating last minute changes. He was flexible about our preferences and made the ceremony about my wife and me. We eloped and did not want (or reserve) a standard venue. Mark was never hesitant about that. We were a bit late due to transportation issues. He was patient. He communicated well in scheduling the ceremony in advance. He was prompt in mailing the signed license to the clerk's office and sending us the scanned version. I would recommend Mark without hesitation.Jan 13, 2018Verified

Mark was so great to work with! Very responsive and informative. He made us feel comfortable to work with and we knew we made the right choice the first time we met with him. He has been so helpful with the all of our questions and offering advice with obtaining our marriage license and name changing after the wedding. The rehearsal was a breeze with Mark! When it came to the ceremony he added everything we wanted and more it was so beautiful. I would definitely recommend Mark to anyone looking for a great, dependable, and professional officiant!!Aug 28, 2017Verified

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?My standard price is $200 for the wedding and an extra $50 if I am needed at the rehearsal. There are no other fees or add-ons.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?I either meet with the new customers personally or communicate by email or phone. I provide them with a checklist containing all information necessary for them to understand the process of a wedding. There are also questions on the checklist that they answer and return to me. Once I receive the answers to the checklist, I prepare a Draft Wedding Ceremony. I send the customers the draft and they are free to submit back to me their thoughts, edits etc. I make whatever edits or additions they want and then send the revised Draft Wedding Ceremony back to them for their approval. Once approved, I am ready to officiate at their wedding. The wedding ceremonies I officiate typically last between 15 and 30 minutes. I try to add as much levity as is tasteful. After the ceremony, I sign and file the Marriage License and send the clients, scanned copies of the signed Marriage License. I also send the clients information on name change if it is relevant.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I am attorney licensed to practice law in the State of Illinois and have been so since the fall of 1978. I am a trial attorney so I am an excellent public speaker and I am also very good at thinking on my feet. I know the Illinois Marriage Act backwards and forwards. I educate my clients on obtaining a Marriage License, a certified copy of their signed and filed Marriage License and change of name.
