    Our wedding Feb 10, 2018

    After we met with Rev Ray we knew he was the perfect fit! Having access to the “candy store” to design our wedding ceremony was amazing!We had a rehearsal the Wednesday before and he made sure we were all ready for the big day(along with making us laugh and keeping us calm!) All of our guests commented how great our ceremony and Rev Ray was!

    The pleasure was mine to meet you and Chris, and your family. My perspective is that even what might be considered simple weddings should be as memorable as you describe. I'm so pleased that my ministry to you was so enjoyed by all. Thanks for the encouragement. Ray

    June Wedding 2018

    Ray was punctual and professional in his services. We felt that he was very accommodating to our needs especially when editing our vows for us. We appreciated his humour and attention to detail. There were areas that I didn't even think of that Ray considered during our ceremony. We can't thank him enough for being apart of our special day! xo The Smetanin's

    Ray was exactly what we needed in an officiant. He was helpful, friendly, open minded, professional and even funny. Ray is extremely well organized, more than you could hope for from any wedding vendor. His organization made our day go that much more smoothly. We did a rehearsal (which i highly recommend) and he did a great job controlling our wedding party and staying focused on the task so we didn't waste any time. Ray has more years of experience than I have been alive and it really shows! Many of our guests complimented his voice and demeanor. The brides candy shop that comes with Ray is also so helpful for planning. Lots of great information in there. You have the ability to really customize your service which makes your day that much more special. Don't hesitate to use Ray, he's worth every penny!
