Our Unique Wedding Services… Personal and Professional

The key to a great wedding ceremony is one that uniquely displays who you are, the very substance of the bride and groom and their love. Incorporating elements in the ceremony that celebrate your family, your history, your future, and your legacy make your wedding distinctively you. If we together can bring your guests through tears, laughter and celebration, to the pinnacle of your hearts and relationship, then we have succeeded with excellence to make your wedding something that you and they will remember forever.

We Specialize in traditional and non-denominational weddings in Iowa. Our desire is to show honor , respect and reverence in the most important ceremony of your life as we celebrate the gift of Holy Matrimony, but to do it in a way that is comfortable, peaceful, calm, personal and encouraging.

While we believe that faith and God – the creator of marriage- are essential parts of a wedding ceremony and moreover the marriage, our focus is not upon religion but upon relationships. Our passion is to celebrate personal relationships in a way that honors God and respects your entire family, generations past, great-grandparents, grandparents, parents, and generations of the future forever!

My husband and I worked very hard to create a simple and elegant wedding of our dreams. We worked with Pastor Joseph Karge to see our vision come to life.

Before our initial meeting with Pastor Joe we focused so much on our wedding and our wedding day. Pastor Joe met with us and made us realize that the wedding was one day but the marriage was a life time. We discussed all aspects of the wedding and what life is going to be after the wedding.

Pastor Joe’s professionalism and passion for his life’s work gave us the sense of comfort. He personalized our wedding ceremony in such a way that I stood in front of my husband on my wedding day and thought “He truly understands us.” I cannot thank Pastor Joe enough for helping my husband and I build a foundation for our marriage.

Also, thank you for making our ceremony the simple and elegant wedding we dreamed of.

Pastor Karge,
I know this has taken a long time, but Ken and I want to thank you for making our Wedding Day extra special. It was a fantastic day and had many compliments on the ceremony.

Ken and I are doing great, and are loving the married life and can't imagine a day without each other. We are expecting our first baby (A boy) around Halloween and we couldn't be more happy.. We have a lot of exciting things to look forward to, as we expand our family and also hope to sell our townhouse and buy a house that we can raise our family in.

Hope all is well with you and your family.

Thank you again,
Kristin & Ken Smith

Dear Pastor Joe,

We wanted to reiterate how pleased we were with the ceremony. Many people complimented how well you did, about the message, music, etc. It was such a wonderful celebration and we are so grateful to you.

Thank you for taking the time to get to know us - it made for a spectacular and meaningful ceremony. The "Personal Statement" was my favorite part: even though I was so nervous. May the New Year bring you all that you deserve.

It is not often that you meet someone and only a few short hours later can call that person a friend, but that's the experience we had with Pastor Karge. He helped make our wedding ceremony personal, unique and memorable.

Pastor Karge spent a lot of time getting to know us and actually participating in the planning process. We met with him on several occasions after which, he walked us through designing a beautiful ceremony that was truly meaningful for both us and our families. He was very easy to talk to about absolutely everything and always gave us plenty of time to think through decisions that had to be made. He provided an additional perspective for us that always helped make the decisions easier.

We enjoyed every part of the ceremony planning process and we owe that in large part to Pastor Karge. He is one of the most passionate, caring individuals either of us has ever met.

We are very pleased that we began our new lives together with Pastor Karge's blessing and we would highly recommend his services to other couples.
