Team

Karl Hess
Karl Hess
Officiant

I am an Ordained Minister with the Universal Brotherhood Movement. I have officiated weddings for friends, family and people I have met through networking since 2003. I meet with the couple and set up a ceremony that works for all of us. I am open to all faiths and beliefs and am willing to work with the couple to create the perfect ceremony. My belief is that the universe is composed of love and that we are a part of the Universe. My message is love, friendship, partnership, cooperation, celebration, and learning.

I also work with other officiants. Please see my website under the Universal Wedding Officiants tab for additional information!
