Introduction: Congratulations to you both! I'll meet with both of you - by phone or in person - to create a very personal, unique ceremony that expresses your commitment. And, when appropriate - with a sense of humor! Attendees at the ceremony often ask me, “How many years have you known the couple?” As a Non-Denominational minister for over 20 years, I've performed weddings in a variety of venues: a speedboat, backyards, river boats, state penitentiaries, country clubs, parks, the Renaissance Festival, farms, and churches. My background also includes: professional musician, published novelist and screenwriter, on-air personality in Minneapolis radio, and active in the prayer and healing community of Wooddale Church. Let's talk soon - ! Also available for baptisms, house blessings, and funerals/memorial services. NOTE: I am available for premarital counseling; check with your local county for a discount on your marriage license fee.

I’m a wedding planner and coordinator and I’ve worked with quite a few pastors and officiants. Reverend Carl was amazing with the couple and wedding party! He was calm, organized, spoke very well and was genuinely kind with the couple. I would HIGHLY recommend him. (I will be recommending him for future weddings.)If you don’t have a pastor, I know it can be daunting to find a fabulous speaker, who is warm and personable and he is just that... Again, I highly recommend!

Reverend Carl was an absolute steal! From the moment I expressed interest in having him as our officiant, he made it so easy to communicate and was always prompt with his responses. His price included meeting with us (the couple) before the actual wedding day. Rev. Carl made the experience so personal, was so attentive, and was just as into it as we were! We couldn’t have asked for a better person to have married us. We are very grateful to have found him, it was such a blessing. Carl genuinely had the heart for it, and our special day wouldn’t have been so special without him. Rev. Carl was one of the best decisions we made in every way, we would recommend him over and over again. Thank you for being such an important part of our important decision. We appreciate all of the effort Carl put into our ceremony. It was a fairly short part of the wedding day, but the most memorable and most valuable moment. -Diamond & Kelvin Ramirez.

Carl really did a good job! He responded my message really quick with professionalism. We had a very brief ceremony at our house and Carl made it super easy and smoothly!

    Typically $200 + $75 to add rehearsal. Elopement or basic ceremonies are $150. Mileage included if venue is within approx 60 miles.

  • How did you get started doing this type of work?

    Many officiants/ministers say they got “The Call.” I literally got a phone call from my church, asking me to become an outreach minister!
