          Finding someone who can help you with your ceremony, be it - spiritual, religious, searching, seeking, non affiliated or any other description probably brought you here.


         I'm Reverend Carl Johnson, an Inter Faith minister performing elopements, weddings, ceremonies, vow renewals, and other spiritual and religious services in North Carolina. Although I am based in New Bern, I perform services in the Inland Coastal area of NC, to include New Bern, Cherry Point, Jacksonville, Morehead City, Atlantic Beach, Emerald Isle, Kinston, and Goldsboro.


        Whether you seek a traditional wedding service, or one uniquely written and performed for and by you, I can make that happen. Whether a large service or just a small elopement 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.


      You CAN have the wedding ceremony you've dreamed of having.  You just have to engage with someone willing to make it happen.  Call or email me to see how we can make your dream come alive.

Top Reviewed Officiant 2010-2023


      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 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.
