Introduction: “How long have you known the bride & groom? Since college?” We hear that pretty often! I (or we) will meet with both of you - by phone or in person - to create a very personal, unique ceremony that expresses your commitment and shines light on the things that brought you together - and with a joyful sense of humor! As a Non-Denominational minister for over 25 years, I've performed weddings in a variety of venues: a speedboat, backyards, river boats, 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 the prayer and healing communities of Wooddale Church, & currently, The House Church. My wife Susan is also a Non-Denominational minister, with years of experience in prayer & healing ministry (including Wooddale Church and The House Church), and is often involved in the ceremonies as a joyful presence, as well as officiating ceremonies of her own in her uniquely loving & personable manner. She’s a true gem! 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, and premarital and marital counseling.

Susan was our wedding officiant, Carl helped put together the script and communicated with us through the process. These two are the nicest people! Susan was so calming and helpful. We loved the humor she added to our ceremony. We are so thankful for the both of them. We HIGHLY recommend them to anyone looking for an officiant!!

Rev Carl was a delight to work with. He worked with my fiancé and I at a distance since we were all in different states. With that, we only got to meet in person at the wedding itself! Which worked out wonderfully as Rev Carl had a great sense of humor and guests loved what he put together with us. We couldn’t have made a better choice for our officiant. If you’re unsure, I recommend talking with Rev Carl and seriously considering him to officiate your wedding

Details: Wedding • Christian • 51 - 100 guests • Help writing vows will be needed • English • Officiant will be needed at the rehearsal

From start to finish working with Reverend Carl was a breeze. Great communication, punctuality, and personality. With the stress that can come with planning a wedding, it was great to have Carl as an officiant— we didn’t have to worry one bit. You can tell he’s experienced & passionate about you and your special day. Amazing experience, thank you Rev. Carl!

It was wonderful to have Carl officiate our ceremony! He was extremely responsive and helpful leading up to our wedding day and gave us complete creative control over the ceremony. Several of our guests came up to us after the ceremony and remarked how refreshing and well executed our ceremony was. Highly recommend!

Carl did an amazing job being our officiant for our special day. He had a story layout, that I provided through bullet points, that made it seem like he was a good friend. I would highly recommend having Carl at your wedding. Truly an amazing experience for our wedding.
