A baptism, a funeral, a memorial, a wedding, a commitment ceremony, premarital counselling, family counselling...all are spiritual needs you may have. And of course, you're reading this because you have these needs.
I'm Reverend Carl Johnson, an Inter Faith minister performing sacraments, services, weddings, ceremonies, commitments, vow renewals, and providing other spiritual and religious services in North Carolina. Although I am based near Raleigh, I perform services from the Triangle to the Coast.
Whether you seek a traditional wedding service, or one uniquely written and performed for and by you, together we can make that happen. Whether a large service or just a small wedding, either in a church, in the majesty of the NC outdoors or at your favorite restaurant, I'll make sure that your ceremony exceeds your expectations.
If you have any questions, please feel free to email me here:
or call/text me at (919) 320-7428 during normal hours.
I'm honored by the reviews and references that 'my' couples make about me. It's really a balance of working with them in depth to create a personalized ceremony that is just right for them. I maintain that if the audience only relates to the wedding party as if they were actors on a stage, then I haven't performed a personalized wedding. It's when the family members and friends tell me afterwards that the ceremony 'was them' about the couple, then I know I made a ceremony that reflected their values. That is really what it's all about.
I've performed military weddings, civil services, fantasy themed weddings, beach weddings, small elopement style weddings, 5 star resort weddings, destination weddings, backyard weddings with pig pickin' receptions. And they are all exactly right for that particular couple.
If you want a personalized wedding that is all about you, it's to your benefit to ask questions and feel the connection with your officiant. If the connection isn't there, I'd recommend you continue your search. I offer a No Cost, No Obligation consult with each couple to explore how I can help you have the wedding you really want to have.
And a note of caution. There are web based officiant services who have no physical presence in NC. Yet, they will happily to take your money as a referral based system. I lok at it this way. I trust the web for general information. For details specific to the circumstance, I want someone on the ground who has experience in the area. Be sure you know who's who, and exactly with whom you are dealing.
