Meet Rev Ray Alonzo - Ceremonies by Ray
Meet Reverend Ray Alonzo

Officiant Reverend Ray Alonzo has had a passion for uniting couples in love for over 20 years. His experience in performing hundreds of weddings, vow renewals, and rehearsals has led him to be voted Top Wedding Officiant for Orlando’s Best Of Weddings. Rev. Ray is a retired Pastor from Louisiana that was originally ordained by Covenant Church, located in Destrehan, Louisiana, where he and his wife pastored a ministry within the church called “Second Time Around”. Their ministry catered to divorce recovery, stepfamily issues, which led to him performing many vow renewals, and wedding ceremonies over the years. Through extensive course studies, he diligently studied the principles of God’s word to discover the secrets of having a successful marriage. Rev. Ray and his family relocated to Florida in 2006 where he retired from pastoring and discovered his new passion and purpose in life, performing wedding ceremonies for all couples, which lead him to create his own brand and style of wedding ceremonies called “Ceremonies by Ray ”.

Officiant Ray is a certified Notary Public of the State of Florida in which he performs an array of both civil and religious ceremonies for traditional and same sex couples. Ray’s unique experiences in public speaking makes him a great fit for couples looking for an experienced officiant to deliver an eloquent and heartfelt ceremony on their special day. His calm and upbeat demeanor settles the nerves of the most anxious of couples on what is the most important day of their lives. His subtle and tasteful humor wins over a variety of audiences that makes the ceremony an enjoyable and memorable event that the guests along with the couple will cherish for a lifetime.
