    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.

    Ray is really nice person. He is professional and patient for every detail. He practiced to pronounce both of our names correctly several times before the wedding. I definitely recommend him to all of you.

    Thank you for your appreciation, Chunhui. I loved meeting you and Jie, and learning how to say your names right. And the bonus was enjoying your friends who attended your wedding with you.

    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!
