This man and his websites area a SCAM. He is no longer in Key West and no way to get in touch with him. He took our money and screwed up our entire wedding as we had been planning for a year.

Same as other negative reviews: initial responsiveness ok, day before wedding had a great chat to lay out the details. WELL: The chairs and water never came. My 3 disabled guests had to stand for the entire hour or rest on the trolley. They gave the tolley company my credit card number after he already charged me, so I paid for it twice with no ASAP refund for the second payment or the chairs or water. There was no video taken as stated in the package. We did call court house and license was in the mail. Three weeks later-NO PICTURES; no one picture of my only daughter's wedding. We trusted them and never took out our own camera until the reception. The cake and flowers came and there was very little stress. The wedding itself with my daughter's own vows was very nice. THe officiant and photographer were professional and competent. The business side of this outfit leaves a lot to be desired and service after the sale (they have you money) stinks. I will have to see what my credit card company can do for me.

Do NOT use this man for your wedding. I was married a year and a half ago and have still not received any pictures. It took at least a month to receive our wedding license. We have tried to contact them on several occasions and no one will return our calls, texts or emails. I paid for the services in full and was ripped off. Stress free weddings my ass.

Chapel by the Sea was recommended by a friend............communication was very scarce, but I didn't need my hand held. We just wanted a small ceremony on the beach. The only positive was that we decided at the last minute to add the video option and Ron managed to get that set up. Day of the wedding met at the beach and everything was done in less than 15 minutes. Was told we would have our pictures by Tuesday or Wednesday at the latest. Several emails later we finally got the pictures on Friday, for the most part they were good, but not as many as I expected. The last minute video though - non existent. Received email on 11/16 saying that it had been sent to the editing company and that we should have it within 3-4 weeks. It is now 7 weeks, 4 emails, voice mail and text message later with ABSOLUTELY zero response. Have requested money back through Paypal but seriously doubt that we will ever get it back. If you want a stress free wedding with everything you ordered DON'T use Chapel by the Sea, it will only result in a great amount of frustration and stress.

Married by this guy 10/6/2012. 3 weeks and apparently the license was mailed.....funny because I had to go to the courthouse today and do everything ALL ove again. Thank goodness the employees at the courthouse felt bad for us and with no assistance from this Ron, we walked out today with our Marriage License recorded and correct. We have not received our photo CD. Save yourself the headache and use someone ANYONE else.

The wedding was perfect. I purchased the barefoot contessa at sunset on Smather's beach, tipped $75, added circle of petals in sand.
Planned in April for July, got a confirmation email from Ron in May. I emailed him once a few days before my wedding to see if we could push it back an hour, he replied the day before the wedding and said that would be fine. So that was great because I wanted sunset pics. The photographer was awsome and we picked up our photo cd 3 days later and all the photos were touch-up and really turned out great.
Honestly it all turned out great, better than I expected. If you're the type that needs to know every last detail about this wedding this probably isn't for you. But, if you were like me and just wanted something small but nice and somewhat traditional, nice photos for the memories then this is for you. Everything is taken care of for you, you don't have to pick colors of the flowers, the flowers in the bouquet were beautiful, fresh and professionally done. All you have to do is show up and Ron guides you the rest of the way, after you marry he leaves you with the photographer for your 1 hr. session and then 3 days later you pick up your cd in the mailbox attached to his business building on the corner of Fleming and Margaret. He files your papers and you get your marriage liscense in the mail.
My only complaint would be that he doesn't respond quick enough, matter of fact I never verbally spoke to him before my wedding, only thru email. That just made me a little anxious, cuz I just wanted some kind of verbal confirmation. But honestly it all turned out fine and I was pleased.

We had a good experience with Chapel by the Sea and Rev. Ron. I had talked with him over the phone a few times to choose a package. We were happy we went with his advice and got the package with the photographer because he was quite good. (Otherwise, Ron would have been the photographer with very few pics during the ceremony.) The morning of our wedding Ron called us to suggest we have the ceremony at Truman Annex by the fountain since the beach was not cleaned up from the 4th of July parties and a heavy rain the night before. We were fine with this because Smathers Beach is nice but not beautiful anyway. Truman Annex was very pretty! We had requested photos at Fort Zach after the ceremony (prettier scenery with trees, rocks, etc.) and Vitaly the photographer and his wife took us there. We enjoyed meeting them and felt they did a great job with the photography. The only negative we had was that our picture CD wasn't ready for us while we were still in Key West, as promised. It was mailed to us and we got it a week later. Our pics have not showed up on the website either, but that doesn't really matter to us since we have shared them already with friends and family. We had a very simple wedding (just us) and were happy with how things went. We love our pictures!

We contracted Chapel By the Sea for our wedding and would HIGHLY recommend Rev Ron's services. We had our wedding aboard the Jolly II Rover on a 2 hr Sunset Sail on a public cruise. It was the MOST AWESOME ceremony!!!! This was everything we had hoped for and MORE! My Bouquet was absolutely gorgeous, Ron provided beer and wine prior to ceremony and champagne afterwards. The Captain and crew of the Jolly II Rover were wonderful. Thanks Rev Ron for the best day of my life !
We feel we got a very good deal for the price we paid and all we had to do was get our Marriage License and show up at the dock, Rev Ron took care of everything else.

Reverend Ronney was great. I would and will recommend his services to any friends/family who are looking to have a destination wedding. He worked around our schedule, as we were only in Key West for a short time while stopping in on a cruise ship. Ron answered all our questions a couple months in advance, and then contacted us again to confirm meeting place and time about a month before the wedding. The ceremony we received was exactly as described on the website and exactly what we had expected. It was obvious that Ron knew what he was doing and has a lot of experience. I can't wait to get our dvd with the photos he took on it because I'm sure he got some great ones!
