Introduction: Ray Moore has been officiating wedding ceremonies since 1991 (and they're still together), We've united dozens of couples this year. With each ceremony, we learn something new that we bring to the next couple. We have done simple elopements, traditional vows, sand ceremonies and even communion! During the rehearsal, the "how's and why's" of ceremony parts are discussed, giving the bridal party a deeper understanding of their roles. This reflects in the actual ceremony and gives an appreciation for the step the bride and groom are taking. Karen has a strong background in event management, floral design and arranging and budget management. It's been a natural progression to wedding planning and day-of coordinating. We invite you to see just a sampling of her floral designs on our web page. She charges for the cost of the flowers/greenery at wholesale rate and charges $30.00 per hour to design the wedding floral's. We enjoy assisting those who are looking to Charleston as a destination wedding spot. We can help with the ceremony, do light planning or be your "feet on the ground" to coordinate the logistics as much as you need us to. One of the weddings that we had the honor to officiate in 2016 at the beautiful Magnolia Plantation and Gardens is going to be featured in the 2017 Spring issue of Charleston Weddings magazine! We are very excited! Let our experience and know-how help you make your day just as special as you dream it to be! We pride ourselves on our ability to "create sanctuary" throughout the ceremony. Our couples have had smooth, calm and laughter as we celebrate the Love that brought them to this point in their relationship and set it, as such, from this day forward. Every ceremony is unique. Working with our couples to create the ceremony of their dreams is always enjoyable. Our flexibility for how they want the ceremony to go, and with our guidance and suggestions, we've yet to have a situation or request we couldn't fulfill! It keeps it fresh and exciting for us and validates our passion for uniting couples with only one hitch: THEIRS!

I highly recommend the wedding services of This Day Forward. Rev. Ray was very prompt responding to each of our correspondences. He was very open and flexible to our ideas. He made attentive and am impressive attention to detail with regards to our ceremony. Rev. Ray and his wife touched base with us the day before the wedding as well as a few hours before the event. They were early to our event, patient and calm even though we did not start on time. Both of their temperaments while we were busy running around, was very calm and helpful. Rev. Ray performed a memorable ceremony and his wife took photos that were so beautiful and professional looking. She sent the photos the day after the wedding. We were so elated because we were excited to see them but didn't expect to receive photos at all, let alone so promptly. Rev. Ray and his wife put together a folder of the details of the Ceremony as well as the necessary legal documents which was so helpful and a wonderful keepsake. I very genuinely highly highly recommend their services. Thank you so very much!!

Shannon, Karen and I thank you for your kind words. The stage you and your family set was so beautiful. You and Phil have done a great job raising young adults and it was so special to bring them into the ceremony the way you did. Thank you for the honor and pleasure of overseeing your and Phil's transition from relationship to Union. Blessed be! ~Rev. Ray. PS: You and Karen share the same birthday!
