Hi Ray, Well, we're back and almost fully into the swing of things again. It kinda feels like I just woke up from a dream. Our wedding day was perfect. Steve and I were both told by several people that it was the best wedding that they had ever been to. Honestly, I don't know that I've ever received a better compliment...

Thank you again for letting me bug you for a year and of course more importantly, for turning our dream wedding into a reality. I will be sure to write a glowing testimonial for you to use if you like.

By the way, another thanks for recommending the Discovery for my parents. Steve and I went over there Sunday and could not get over how beautiful it is. We're already talking about going back. The island has such a piece of my heart. xo, Jessica

Hi Ray, I just wanted you to know that Kaitlyn and Zach's wedding was beautiful. On Thursday when you took our family pictures you told me not to worry, that everything would be fine and it was. You did a wonderful job coordinating the special day for Kaitlyn. I've never seen her so happy. The last 6 months have been pretty tough for her and her wedding was just what the doctor ordered.
The boat ride was very romantic, as was the dinner. The boat stopped about halfway to the Rainforest Hideaway so we could enjoy the sunset. We never got back to our hotel until after midnight.

I love the family pictures. The shadow pictures came out great and I can't wait to get one transferred to canvas. The wedding pictures were spectacular, they looked like models. Kaitlyn is already putting an album together. She was able to e-mail the pictures to me and I was able to upload them to on online website. We were so fortunate that our families and friends could all gather in St Lucia and enjoy this special occasion together. I have a few people who might be interested in coming to St Lucia for their wedding celebration in the next year or so. I will certainly pass your name and website on to them.

Thanks again for making their wedding day like a fairytale.

It was great meeting you Ray. Regards, Jan
Karen & Mike Pigeon Island Wedding
Ray, We want to thank you so much for the incredible wedding experience that Karen and I received during our stay on the most beautiful island in the Caribbean. When I called you two days before we were to leave for our vacation, we were pretty sure that we would not be getting married as we had planned. Due to some legal documentation that we had been waiting for, Sandals informed us that we could not be married at the resort because they needed those docs at least a week in advance of our arrival. On the very last day that doc could come in the mail, it arrived!!
Thank God and the U.S Postal service for their parts in leading us to you.
On a whim I called you, as I had seen your site on the web previous, to see if you could undertake this last minute effort to make our dream a reality! Low and behold, you said, "No worries", I almost passed out, I was that excited!! Karen was crying that all was not lost, that there was indeed hope. Hope that you implanted in our hearts.
The personal touch that you provided, single handily, made our wedding so much more memorable! You took care of everything, from the legal documentation to our bouquet and boutonniere! Even for providing me with your guitar to serenade my wife on our private beach! Who could ask for anything more. Everyone that sees our pictures cannot believe that this entire wedding was put together by you, by yourself, in mere days! But seeing is believing, our pictures our fabulous! We will be printing all 120 photos! I am not a photogenic person, but you really captured our true selves. You are a wonderful person and an amazing photographer!.....
We will be forever thankful! Karen sends hugs and kisses to you and, okay, I send hugs and kisses as well!!
Mike and Karen
p.s...How much do you want for that guitar!!!!!
 
Hi Ray, Now that we are back home and somewhat settled, we wanted to send you a note letting you know how truly grateful and thankful we feel to have found you. We couldn't have asked for a more perfect wedding and nobody better to help us plan that perfect day in paradise. Once we decided to cancel our Boston wedding plans, only to instead pursue the dream of getting married on a tropical island, we were left with one question, "where do we begin?". We knew upfront we didn't want to use the services of the resort because we didn't want to feel like just another number. When I stumbled across your site and read your story about how you got started, I knew we just had to use you. The fact that you only host one wedding a day was perfect for us. We never once felt like a number to you, in fact just the opposite, we felt like we were your friends. From the moment you picked us up at the resort the day after we arrived until the time we left you after the ceremony, we felt so comfortable with you. You did an amazing job with the flowers and the music, we couldn't have picked a better selection of songs, it was as if you already knew us. The talk you gave me just before I walked down to meet Ben on the beach was so nice and really added to the occasion. It was such an intimate setting, which was exactly what we wanted, and we felt like the only two people on the beach which was captured in your amazing photography. The scenery was absolutely gorgeous and we can't stop looking through all the photos you gave us. We are so pleased with all of the photos as are our friends and family.

We will definitely be back to visit St Lucia and hope to see you when we do. If you ever need to use us as a referral back in the states, we would be more than pleased to help out.

Please give Janel and Leslie our best. Janel was a sweetheart and we couldn't have asked for a nicer man than Leslie to marry us.

P.S. Sorry to make you work extra hard due to my squinting so much ; )

Our greatest thanks and much love,
Melissa & Ben LaPlante

Hi Ray, I know Nathan and Sarah will be in contact with you, but I just wanted to thank you and your colleagues for making Nathan and Sarah's wedding day exactly what they wanted and more. They are still 'glowing' with happiness even though they returned to 4 degrees! I cannot thank you enough for the excellent location, service, reception, steel band, photographs and video. The whole package.

Chris and you obviously have 'the magic' and it is clear for all to see, that you have both captured the 'memories of the moment' in a unique way. Your passion and professionalism shines through in all your work, especially the unique styles and types of photographs. Just one critisism though. You could have done a bit of air-brushing on my stomach for the photos - they say the truth hurts!

But seriously, I have no complaints at all. The video and photo's are brilliant and will be shown at the evening reception on the 4th May (and on many other occasions, I am sure). All family and friends present, and even those not present on the day, back home, who have seen the video and photo's so far, have been moved by your sensitive portrayal of the wedding.

The Rainforest Hideaway Beach BBQ food was exquisite. I did not get a chance to thank Jim personally on the night. He and his wife disappeared before I could do so, to collect their children, I understand, but I will write to him seperately.

The amount of planning and work it takes (took) to deliver your service(s) is not lost on me and I am very grateful. Please convey my thanks to your assistant and other staff, who played a significant part in making the event a success. Also, please feel free to use any of my thanks and feedback as you see fit.
Wishing you and your colleagues continued good health happiness and prosperity. Steve Smith.
We would like to thank Ray for making our special day a truly memorable and fantastic event. Our initial plan was to take advantage of the wedding package that our hotel offered, and have our pictures taken by a local photographer. Whilst surfing the internet for a photographer, I came across a recommendation from a couple that were married in St. Lucia. I contacted them and then emailed Ray. He was very professional, patient and answered my constant stream of questions.

I started calling the resort immediately after we booked our trip, leaving several voicemail messages for the wedding co-coordinator. She finally called back after 5 or 6 messages and promised that someone would call me within 24 hours with the details for our wedding, but my call was never returned. I mentioned my frustrations with the resort to Ray and he suggested planning our wedding for us. As it turns out, it was the best decision we could have made. From thereon it was smooth sailing. Ray started the planning and our only tasks were to choose my bouquet and choose our music. Ray constantly kept in touch with me, we never felt pressured. On several occasions I followed his suggestions for our wedding. Ray even recommended a restaurant, The Edge and made reservations for us.

He emailed us before we left Toronto to wish us a safe trip and with the details of our itinerary. The day before our wedding we met Ray at our hotel, and he took us into Castries to meet the lawyer. On the day of our wedding, the car picked us up from the hotel and took us to our private beach. Marjorie, our wedding officer, performed a beautiful ceremony, Ray and his staff were our witnesses. During the whole process, from the arrival of the car, Ray was taking pictures - pictures of us arriving, pictures of the ceremony, on the beach, in the garden and pictures at the restaurant.

Ray and his staff are professional but easy going, and the best part is how they complement each other. They are kind and wonderful and take great pride in their work and are very detailed oriented. It is very important to Ray that he makes one feel comfortable, he took such care in planning our wedding. It was as though he was planning a wedding for very dear friend or relative. Ray is an amazing photographer. He has to capture the right moment and as such, there are so many great shots, for instance there’s one where the sky in the background is blood red, and another with the waves are crashing in the background.

Ray, thank you for making our wedding day unique and memorable and for being our witness. And thank you for joining us at the restaurant, it meant a lot to us. If you ever decide to visit Toronto, let us know, we would love to have you. Leave the goat at home.

Your Canadian friends, Nellie and Basil Czopyk

 
Dear Ray, Bryan and I want to thank you for the absolutely breathtaking pictures. You really spoiled us during the entire process; planning through the actual ceremony. We were interested in a destination wedding because we wanted a no stress experience where we could focus on the commitment we were making to each other. We felt very comfortable with you from the very beginning and everything was just as we had imagined. Thank you for being so wonderful to work with and for making our special day one of a kind. We were blown away by the quality of the pictures and were very surprised to have them back next day. The pictures far exceeded our expectations and we will cherish them. Thank you again for everything! Love, Bryan and Kristin Kasselman
 
Hi Ray! Mike and I just wanted to thank you so very much for everything!The wedding photos that you shot of us were more beautiful than we could have dreamed of! The are truly breath taking photos and we now have them in frames all over our home, so once again, thank you so much for doing such an amazing job on our wedding. You are the best photographer we ever met! Also, please thank Chris for the amazing video, which came out even better than we could have imagined. We have already watched the video twice and we loved watching every second of his creative work. And, also please thank the minister and the woman who handed us our rings and who put the flower in my hair for their support.

Thank you for making our wedding day so perfect! Warmly, Stacie and Mike
