We had the pleasure of having Mark from Special Moments officiate our wedding. He was excellent from the start! He was so attentive to important details in our relationship during our conversations and brought that so eloquently into our ceremony. He was on time and helpful every step of the way. I would highly recommend him!

I knew right away when my fiance and I met Mark that he was going to be a great choice for our wedding. Mark is professional, prompt in his responses, emotionally supportive & genuinely kind. Our wedding ceremony was absolutely precious and we highly recommend Mark to anyone who is looking for an officiant for their wedding. We feel very blessed and grateful to have met Mark. I have been to several weddings through the years and I can honestly say that Mark is the best wedding officiant.

Mark was absolutely perfect for our wedding ceremony on 7.29.2023. He was on time to both the rehearsal and ceremony, took the time to get to know Casey and I beforehand, and delivered a beautiful personalized speech for us. He was such a sweet guy and awesome to work with. We recommend Mark to everyone!!!

Mark Bidlake was a great choice to officiate our wedding. He was very helpful planning the flow of the event and assisting with our vows. He did a wonderful job of offering ideas, establishing a working format/template and then letting us make adjustments to personalize the script. The communication was excellent pre-event and he, of course, arrived early to prepare, review and even help with decoration of the dais. You’ll find Mark to be warm, caring and lighthearted. He is also a patient and understanding man. My husband came down with Covid the day before our first wedding date so we had to cancel in a hurry and reschedule. Mark was very gracious about it all. All of our guests thought the ceremony was beautiful and graceful. Our many thanks to Mark for helping to make our day memorable and very special.
