Karl was so wonderful. He met my wife and I and after talking with us just a little bit came up with a ceremony that suited us perfectly. He gave us a great poem written by a youth that he helps and was so genuine and loving. We feel really lucky to have had him officiate our special day.Sent on 09/22/2015

Karl was very professional, timely, responsive to emails, and did a wonderful job! We also love that he was willing to hike up onto a mountaintop to marry us. We appreciated him very much on our big day!Sent on 05/28/2019
