  • He couldn’t have executed the wedding in a more loving and perfect manner. From the way he starts off with wanting to know our story, to how he delivers his words during the ceremony, it was truly perfect. You can tell this is something he loves to do. I can’t imagine having someone else marry us. Check the link out just to hear his storybook voice from our wedding. PERFECTION https://youtu.be/VQ7olHLyLPM

    Dear Desirae and Edwin, Thank you for such kind words. I feel most fortunate to have met you both and to be just a footnote in your beautiful love story. It was indeed perfect, and all because of the two of you. At this time when a global pandemic keeps us apart, and with Lt. Edwin even further away, serving not only his country but also the people of Haiti, you made a deserted beach at the very dawn of a new day a cathedral, where just the three of us, and a small team of invisible photo/video artists, created a perfect moment of heaven on earth. May that moment be just a beginning, and may you always be blessed with fair winds and following seas. May you live the days of your lives in peace, love, and happiness.

  • We had to cancel our Maui wedding. Shorten the story, moved it to Florida and needed an officiant. Captain Ray worked with us and made our impromptu wedding fantastic. His grace and thoughtfulness made our experience wonderful. Thank you!

  • From the moment you meet Captain Ray you know you are in good hands! There is a sense of care and attention that must go into the creation and reading of the wedding vows. Captain Ray has this and truly puts his love into the ceremony. Not only did he share meaningful excerpts and readings, but he customized it to my husband and I. He even went as far to meet up with us, at a local brewery of all places. This allowed for him to get familiar with us and understand our relationship further. He was calm, cool, and collected as he took charge of the ceremony. If you are looking for a full service officiant that will care about one of the most important days of your life Captain Ray is your guy! If you aren't sold yet, just talk to him and you'll quickly be reassured.

    Thank you for a most appreciated review. Getting to know and be a part of your lovely wedding was a great pleasure from the moment we met, when you arrived with the thirsty "horse," Adam’s kindly 125 lb. hip-high Irish Wolfhound. As a Maritime Academy graduate and active sea-going mariner, it was a very special honor to be asked to officiate at his wedding. As always, wishing you both fair winds and following seas!

  • Captain Ray officiated our beautiful wedding and was exactly what we could have asked for. We met a few weeks in advance to chat and give him our story, and he personalized the ceremony with all of it. He was even prepared (or quick on his feet) to change up his reading when rain forced us from the beach to the intracoastal side of the island on a terrace instead. We’d dreamed of being married near the water and by a sea captain, but Captain Ray delivered and then some!

    Thank you, Nick! Your Amanda's ceremony was very touching and will always be remembered as the marriage that managed to blend the magical myths we all love with the reality of your beautiful moment of becoming one.

    Aviana, it was your and Trenton's heartfelt vows that you wrote and read from the heart that no one on the beach that day will ever forget. Thank you for your kind comments which give me great satisfaction knowing that you were pleased. Again, wishing you fair winds and following seas, with peace love and much happiness.

  • Captain Ray was extremely responsive & professional! He met us prior to our wedding to gain an understanding of our story & personalities. Within days of meeting Captain Ray had a beautiful sermon that took into account our venue & our story. Weeks before our wedding we had to change our venue & Captain Ray had an updated sermon turned around in a day. At the ceremony Captain Ray was on point, professional, caring & loved by all! We will definitely use his services every year we renew our vows & is highly recommended.

    Dear Bridget, that is so much appreciated. However, your and Travis's vows written and read from the heart is what made your Wedding so very exceptional. You only needed me to say by the authority vested in me by the State of Florida I hereby declare... Nevertheless, it's a date. Next year, same time, same place!

    Dear Karolina and Aldo, Thank you for the opportunity to be a part of your magical Family wedding. The Bride and Groom's charismatic style was exceeded only by the grace of your Mother and the charm of your beautiful children. It felt as if we were viewing in real time an exclusive event through the lens of the paparazzi on the pages of a lifestyle magazine. I have a feeling that your life together will be much the same and filled with happiness.

  • From the moment we met Captain Ray, we knew he was the man for the job. He was so personable, easy to talk to, and genuinely interested in getting to know us. We met for coffee and he asked questions of how we met and what made ours a unique love story. He talked about the ceremony and what we wanted to include or exclude, but he also asked about our families and our individual histories and really got to know who we are. By the next day, he had already composed a basic script for the ceremony that showed he was really listening to what we said and humorously recounted how our story evolved to the point of marriage. The best part of Captain Ray presiding over your wedding is that he creates a ceremony that is about you. He tells your story to your guests, which makes them feel like they are a part of the ceremony as well. He allows you input into what you want him to say, what rituals to include, and even the wording of your vows so that it is a truly personalized day. Captain Ray gr... Read more

    Dear Karin and Tony, Thank you for such kind words for doing something that was so enjoyable. Your creative magical wedding in the gardens of the historic Sundy House was magical. You both and your Father's prayer will be long remembered.

    Thank you, Stephen. I was very touched by your and Mimi's beautiful sunrise service on the shores of Palm Beach. Only the magic of love could bring a tear to the eye of three adults standing alone on a beach in a rising sun?
