    Incredible experience with Ray!

    Ray is an extremely organized and experienced officiant. He offered many suggestions to help enhance our ceremony that we would never have thought of. Ray encouraged us to incorporate lots of customization to the ceremony in order to make it our special day, and it absolutely was. His voice is so captivating and smooth. I would absolutely recommend him to anyone looking for a fantastic officiant. You don't need to look elsewhere, Ray is your guy.

    Hickups are so much a part of weddings. You just never know what is going to happen, and almost anything can. I'm so pleased to have been able to blend your hickup into the whole wedding experience. It's something Ive worked hard to learn, and keep learning. I wish you a marriage that excels despite other hichups along the way. Love makes all things possible!! Ray

    Look no further!

    Ray officiated our wedding after we witnessed our friends be married by him last year. Even though I hadnt met with Ray before the wedding to prepare and we had only exchanged a few emails leading up to the day, Ray captured the importance of our day perfectly. Our ceremony was short but sweet, exactly what we had asked for, and Ray was extremely professional and knowledgeable throughout the entire process. Couldn’t have asked for a more fitting service!

    I am so pleased that, though your package left me to choose the ceremony, I was able to read the situation so correctly that your wedding was everything you hoped for. May you enjoy a lifetime of love and care together. Ray

    Great Officiant!

    Ray was an amazing officiant, he was very responsive to emails and helped us along the way. We asked for a short, simple and sweet ceremony and he definitely provided! Everything was great, he kept it lighthearted, had a strong loud voice, so even with the no mic people at the back rows were able to hear him. Very reasonable rates as well. Any one who is getting married should 100% use him!!

    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!
