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!Sent on 10/14/2019

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.Sent on 06/11/2019

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!Sent on 04/12/2019
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!

As a wedding musician, I get to meet and observe hundreds of wedding officiants all over South Carolina. When I met Rev. Ray and Karen, I knew that they were exceptional. They performed a beautiful ceremony and customized everything to what the couple needed. I recommend them!
