10102020 Wonderful Wedding
From the first time we met Ray virtually, we felt comfortable explaining our vision for our wedding ceremony. He was professional, reassuring and friendly. He offered so many options to help us prepare our dream ceremony. The actual ceremony was lively and spontaneous. We really enjoyed celebrating our union with Ray.Sent on 12/10/2020

Great Experience with Ray!
Ray was a great source of wisdom and support from start to finish! He was prompt and professional with communication and he made everything very easy! He has officiated my wedding, my brother & sister-in-law's wedding, as well as a my husband's childhood friend's wedding! You will be in good hands if you hire Ray :)Sent on 14/01/2021

Amazing Experience with Ray
Working with Ray was truly amazing. We began planning our wedding at the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic and hoped by October 3, 2020, things would have been settled. Ray met with us virtually early in the planning process and provided valuable information about our day. After our first venue cancelled, he had no problem with our change of plans to our second venue. 7 days before our wedding day, the second venue cancelled and again Ray didn’t even bat an eye about our last minute change. His website provides great templates for ceremony customization. Our guests commented how lovely and personalized our ceremony was. Without a doubt, I would 100% recommend Ray for your wedding officiant.Sent on 24/10/2020
Brides Choice Officiant's reply:Some roller coasters are fun, Jen and Chris. This one had it's own challenges. You rode the ups and downs with grace and were delightful to work throughout. And what a memorable ceremony, complete with a surprising polar invasion mid ceremony. Yet, with optimism the could not be cooled, you enjoyed it all. Thanks for the privilege of officiating for you, and for the lovely cake and berries my wife and I were able to share on the way home. Ray

Our Perfect Day!
Our officiant, Ray Cross, was everything we wanted in an officiant...caring, efficient, timely and organized, with a bit humour thrown in! He was the perfect fit and a lovely addition to our special day; we could not have asked for more.Sent on 21/10/2020
Brides Choice Officiant's reply:Your wedding was a delightful challenge, Tammy and Mike, as your sense of humour trumped mine. What a wonderful culmination of the challenge of arranging a wedding in the midst of covid craziness! It was a team effort and I was honoured to be part of it. Ray
