Introduction: “How long have you known the bride & groom? Since college?” I hear that pretty often! I'll meet with both of you - by phone or in person - to create a very personal, unique ceremony that expresses your commitment. And with a joyful sense of humor! 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 wife Susan is also a Non-Denominational minister, and is often involved in the ceremonies as a joyful presence as an officiant, or taking informal videos. My background also includes: professional musician, published novelist and screenwriter, on-air personality in Minneapolis radio, and the prayer and healing communities of Wooddale Church, & currently, The House Church. Let's talk soon! Susan and/or I are always happy to talk with you about The Big Day! 🎉😄❤️ Also available for baptisms and funerals/memorial services. NOTE: I am available for premarital counseling; check with your local county for a discount on your marriage license fee. Unfortunately, the discount doesn’t apply in Wisconsin.

Reverend Carl was amazing at officiating our wedding. He was personable, professional, and he made the entire process a breeze for us. The maid of honor dropped the ring, and spun the situation into something memorable by making everyone laugh. We highly recommend him to anyone who is looking for an officiant.

Rev. Carl was the perfect choice for our wedding. He was very flexible with anything we wanted for our ceremony, and delivered on all requests! During the ceremony he was relaxed and dedicated to making the moment special. Later we even got compliments on how good our officiant was! From Mrs. and Mr. Hadraba we want to say, thank you Carl for making our day that much more perfect.

Reverend Carl is a true gem! He responded to my inquiry request within 10 minutes of sending my message. He made the whole ceremony planning process so easy. He arrived early and was very professional. We couldn’t have asked for a more delightful officiant! He helped to make our wedding day just what we wanted.

FAQs

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

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

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    Email, text or call to set up a meeting. Payment secures your date and my commitment.

  • 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!
