Mark Kingsdorf, MBC

Founder of The Queen of Hearts Wedding Consultants

Mark continues to play an active role behind the scenes, helping to guide the team as they continue to grow and expand.

Mark is a graduate of The Culinary Institute of America {Hyde Park, New York}, and his experience in hotels, restaurants, and off-premise catering always attracts couples who are into food, wine and specialty drinks.

His expertise in wedding etiquette and design, his hands-on experience in all areas of wedding planning, and his fun, quirky sense of humor tend to put both stressed-out brides and nervous moms at ease!

He is currently working with the Emily Post Institute on several wedding etiquette books, and continues to build on his formal design training with some of the region’s top experts in décor.

Mark never ceases to remind our team of the importance of really getting to know each couple we work with, helping to design a wedding truly reflective of each couple, and building friendships that extends well beyond their wedding day.
