    A wonderful experience!

    Hiring Rev Ray and Karen Moore was the best decision we made. They couldn't have been more helpful and easy to work with. They helped me find a photographer and a violinist, both of which were wonderful. I also hired Karen to do my flowers and they were absolutely beautiful. We were very happy with the ceremony Rev Ray performed and wouldn't change a thing. Thank you both for making our wedding day a breeze!

    Thank you, Mrs. Durbin!

    It makes it all so easy when the trust levels are there. I knew we wouldn't let you and Rob down!
    Did you get the plumbing fixed???!!!

    Great Experience

    Ray and Karen are a power-duo. They genuinely care about the couples they work with. Ray crafted a wonderful ceremony for us and Karen did a great job facilitating it by timing the entry of bridesmaids and making sure we were on schedule.

    Hi Kate,

    Thank you for taking the time to review our services and for the very kind words! We truly do care about our couples and treat each wedding as if it were our own. Your wedding was truly one of our top 10 to perform. The ceremony was timeless and so elegant especially being held in the beautiful St. Luke's Chapel. We really would love to stay in touch and have dinner sometime! Thank you again for the honor!!

    Wedding Ceremony 3.23.19

    Reverend Ray and his wife Karen were absolutely amazing - I highly recommend their service for your wedding day! My husband and I are local to Charleston - we met Rev Ray and Karen for coffee beforehand to talk about our ceremony - they had some amazing recommendations and were so nice!

    We had a rehearsal the day before our wedding and Rev Ray talked us through everything to prepare us. The wedding day went perfect! We LOVED our ceremony and we didn't realize this, but after, Rev Ray & Karen provided us with a binder that had our ceremony in it - we are so thankful for this (it also had our marriage license and forms for changing my name)! On top of that, all of the papers in our binder had our ceremony venue as the background (Karen took the photos the day before)! It was such a special touch & we are so thankful for this so we can look back on our wedding day!

    If it couldn't get any better, Rev Ray & Karen also provided us with photos from our rehearsal and our wedding day! Karen is such a talented photographer and it is so nice having those photos :) I can't say enough good things! They are wonderful genuine people!

    Shelby and Jay;
    You and your friends made our job so easy! What goes around comes around, and the Love that goes around you and Jay, and extends to your friends and family standing up for you, came back in the celebration that was your wedding. We just went with the Flow! Thank you for the privilege. May you have many years of happy memories!
    Love to you,
    Rev Ray and Karen
