    Captain Ray was amazing

    We loved having Captain Ray as our officiant. He was so lovely and easy to work with. We could not have had a better experience, and he had a great part in making our day perfect.

    Tusen takk, Caroline! Det var en stor og mest minneverdig glede for meg. Jeg nøt selskapet til din fornemme familie på besøk fra Norge.

    Captain Ray Became Part of Family

    Captain Ray was easy to work with, flexible, and trustworthy. Best of all he has a kind and gentle spirit - the perfect compliment for a special day. We decided to elope and Captain Ray became the unofficial representative for all our missing family members. We can highly recommend him for two or two hundred. Thank you, Captain Ray!

    Heartfelt wedding Ceremony

    Captain Ray was a pleasure to work with. He made sure our ceremony was exactly how we wanted it. He created a story so our friends and family could know just how much we loved and cared for each other. We had guests coming up to us raving about the ceremony and how they have never heard a wedding ceremony so thoughtful and personalized. It was truly a magical day! Thank you Captain Ray for such a great experience!

    Married by A Sea Captain's reply:

    Thank you for such a lovely review and for allowing me to join you on your exciting journey down the Intracoastal Waterway, and may you always be blessed with fair winds and following seas.
    Cheers,
    Captain Ray
