BIO of Marriage Officiant Ray Cross

Ray was exactly what we needed in a marriage officiant. He was helpful, friendly, open minded, professional and even funny. Ray is extremely well organized, more than you could hope for from any wedding vendor. His organization made our day go that much more smoothly. We did a rehearsal (which I highly recommend) and he did a great job controlling our wedding party and staying focused on the task so we didn’t waste any time. Ray has more years of experience officiating than I have been alive and it really shows! Many of our guests complimented his voice and demeanor. The Brides Candy Store that comes with Ray’s officiating is also so helpful for planning. Lots of great information in there. You have the ability to really customize your wedding service which makes your day that much more special. Don’t hesitate to use Ray as your Officiant, he’s worth every penny!  — Brittany 

Ray maintains this site personally to efficiently keep it updated with the very best resources.
He loves the warmth and creativity he can build into weddings with his exceptional rehearsals.

A steady flow of bookings is coming in. Don’t be disappointed. Book Ray today.

U+2 and Sweet and Simple (Package # 1 and #2) weddings involve interesting, simplified ceremonies and are less expensive because they are designed for less time involvement for me, as Officiant.
For this reason U+2 and Sweet and Simple weddings do not include
pre-ceremony planning meetings, customizing or access to the ceremony prior to the wedding, as this invites tweaks that push services into Package #3 pricing.
Be assured that I have never received a complaint about the quality of
a ceremony used for U+2 or Sweet and Simple weddings.
