All we could ask for and more
We knew that Ray was the right officiant for us within minutes of meeting him at his home. He was professional, knowledgeable and so very charming with his sweet little anecdotes. He was also flexible in helping us develop an alternate plan when the pandemic restrictions were enforced. Our elopement was perfect!Sent on 14/09/2020
Brides Choice Officiant's reply:Chantal, it was a pleasure putting together something special for your wedding despite pandemic challenges.

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.Sent on 27/08/2018
Brides Choice Officiant's reply:You and Jared were a delight to work with throughout, Bailey. Without doubt an exceptional experience for all of us, beginning to end.

Brides Choice Officiant's reply: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!Sent on 01/10/2018
Brides Choice Officiant's reply: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

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!!Sent on 25/10/2018
Brides Choice Officiant's reply:What a pleasure it was to officiate your wedding, Heather and Justin. Such a good atmosphere was contributed by all. An honour and a privilege. Ray
