Betsy Raye is really professional, and very calm, which was a big help during our wedding.
Great officiant!! Really flexible! Could not be more happy! Thanks Betsy!
She was so flexible and undertsanding of my lack of plans! Everything turned out perfect and beautiful and I am very glad she was the one we hired!
Betsy Raye is amazing! She has such a warm heart and is very talented, she knew just what to do and when to do it. My husband and I felt so comfortable with her, as if she were a long time friend :)
Betsy is great...
Betsy helped make our wedding so wonderful!! She was very flexible, up until the very last minute changes to ceremony structure! I will have no reservations referring her to others!! Thanks for everything!!!
Betsy was great! We came to her somewhat at the last minute in need of her officiant services. She had no problem with this and was extremely helpful, providing very usefull information. We didn't feel pressured at all working with her, and she respected all of our decissions. I would definitely recommend her to anyone getting married!
Thank you Betsy! Our wedding was so beautiful and meaningful. You helped so much in exploring what my husband and I wanted to express during our ceremony. We got so many compliments about how beautiful and emotional the ceremony was. I would HIGHLY recommend Betsy Raye!
I cannot say enough how amazing Betsy was. She was extremely helpful with the planning process and did a perfect job performing our ceremony. We received many compliments not only about the ceremony but what a kind and warm person she was.
She was quick to respond to my many questions and provided tons of useful information both before and after the wedding. She gave us TONS of vow/ceremony options and the choice to write our own, so our ceremony fitted our relationship and personalities perfectly.
I could not be happier with the service we received from her, and would recommend her to anyone.
Betsy Raye was very professional yet approachable. She made sure we had many choices for our vows and understood what everything meant. She arrived on time, very well dressed and extremely friendly, kind and well organized. I would recommend her without skipping a beat. I appreciated her professionalism and warm personality.
I can't say enough good things about Betsy Raye and her service. She is organized, helpful, professional, very friendly and caring. She made our whole wedding ceremony process stress free. She broke it up into pieces for manageable decision making. Although I decided against a ceremony rehearsal, Betsy was willing to do a conference call with the whole wedding party to talk through ceremony expectations. Our ceremony turned out perfect!...better than we even imagined. All thanks to Betsy! I would highly recommend Betsy Raye for anyone looking for a wedding officiant.
Not only did my husband and I enjoy working with Betsy but both of our families were completely blown away by her. She was an amazing help in working with us to put together a ceremony that was both personal but traditional. She understood all our requests and was beyond flexible in making everything work out the way we imagined (and we had a HUGE bridal party!). I would highly recommend her services! Following the "big day" she even sent us a follow up e-mail explaining next steps and thanking us for letting her be a part of our day.... when in reality, we are the thankful ones. If you are looking for an officiant, pick Betsy Raye, she is the best!
We enjoyed working with Betsy Raye very much. Our lives are so busy and at times we were not responsive in supplying her with the tools she needed to prepare. We also changed some of our plans on the day of the wedding. She was very patient and responsive. We were very happy with the end result!
Betsy did a FANTASTIC job with our wedding. She helped make a complicated process not only simple but fun. My husband and I aprreciated her sense of humor and her ability to guide us through the steps we needed to take. Not only did she help with the wedding she also provided me with what I needed to go through the legal process of a name change after the wedding. I would highly recomend her to any couple looking for an Officiant. One of the things we appreciated about her was that she went above and beyond the call of duty in many ways and was always cheerful and good at relaxing me when I was feeling like a stressed out bride. We lived in Oregon and she helped make a "cross state line" wedding simple and beautiful. Everyone of our guest commented on what a good job she did. Some of the ways that she went above the call of duty was that she provided us with a place to hold our wedding, helped decorate and clean up, and was patient when a few of our guest were over an hour late and we held up the service waiting for them. This was both of our second weddings and we both agreed that it was the best service we both had. Thank you Betsy, You are great!
Betsy Raye was willing and able to work with us to create our wedding ceremony through email, since we live outside of Washington. She had suggestions for where to begin the process of creating a ceremony, and supportive of our choices. It was a beautiful day and Betsy Raye helped with her professionalism and thoroughness.
Betsy Raye provides a highly professional and comprehensive service to help you create the perfect wedding ceremony. Her elegance and authentic style added a much appreciated presence to our wedding and we were extremely grateful for her helpfulness and consideration, in addition to her diligent preparation in the performance of our ceremony. Betsy Raye truly helped us create what will always be remembered as our perfect day.
Betsy Raye rocks. We love her! To heck with spiderman, she is my new super HERO!!!!!!
She is warm, she is receptive, she listens, she is accommodating, she is beautiful- inside and out. Not to mention that her physical appearance is a plus to any wedding party.
Betsy Raye was a dream come true. She made our wedding the best!! She was warm and very easy to work with. For the most important day of my life I couldn't have found a better officiant.
She worked with us for months on what our ceremony would be like. She was very patient, met with us multiple times. Did a great job!
Betsy Raye made our special day even more spectacular with her organized manner and flexibility. Our chosen family had a wonderful evening and the memories will last a lifetime.
Neither snow, wind nor sleet can dampen her spirit! April 19,2008
Betsy Raye was absolutely wonderful in making our wedding a day never to be forgotten. My fiancee Kim and I were looking for a minister that could honor our diverse Spiritual paths (including Celtic, Quaker and Earth Centered Spirituality) and Betsy was most open and caring in helping us prepare our vows. She spent time with us personally, emailed numerous resources to us, helped with the minor crises that always come with a wedding and was most loving and warm throughout our time with her.
We cannot recommend her highly enough. If you want a minister with heart and soul, who will go the additional mile for you--Betsy Raye is the one.
Betsy was great! She really went the extra mile to ensure that our wedding was something to remember. She was kind, patient and caring and showed a genuine interest in our happiness. Overall, I can't think of anyone else that I would have done our wedding other than Betsy. Great service!
Betsy was amazing, couldnt ask for anyone better =) she Married me and my husband in 2007. She was very easy to talk to and she gave us lots of ideas for our ceromony, which was very helpful. Her calmness REALLY helped me on my big day! I would Highly recommend Betsy to anyone !!

The most valuable service Betsy offers is the wording to your ceremony. She provides a lot of wording that you can pick and choose from and really make your wedding vows personalized. From very classic and religious to more free sprited and progressive. We really liked the ability to mix some of the old with the new and have vows that we both could be really happy with. Choosing Betsy was the most important decision for our wedding. If you decide to go with her, you will not be disappointed.
Betsy...Thank you so very much for all your wonderful services and care. You are truly a blessing! You put so much into your work and it shows just how much you love what you do.
Our wedding was absolutely beautiful thanks to you. Everything was so stress free and fun.
And again, Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.

Thank you for all of your help in making such a magical day! You truly made it perfect in every way. Thank you for all that you did for us.

We appreciate Betsy Raye for her presence in marrying us, not only as husband and wife but as a family. She gave us so many ideas and vision. She worked with us and gave us motivation with positive feedback. With everything she has done for us, to know that she was so supportive of all our ideas in making changes was helpful. She is a great down to earth person and I am very grateful she was the one we chose to be a part of marriage and now part of memories, which we will share for the rest of our lives. Thanks to her everything was
planned out and went so smoothly, very comfortable for everyone. Although she was there to just to do her job and marry my husband and I, it seemed as though we gained a friend. A friend who will be in our hearts forever for she is now a part of our life, as she brought us together
as Mr. and Mrs. Maghanoy and Family.
Aloha and Mahalo,
-Thia and Richard
The ceremony was beautiful! You were so helpful in making everyone feel calm before the wedding, as we had no rehearsal.
Our entire family commented on how well you did and how
wonderful the words were. I was so pleased in your providing us with so many different options so that we could tailor it to our needs. With all of the wording options you gave, it made it far more personalized. God Bless you in all you do. You are a joy to the world, and especially to newly married couples. I will refer
you on. (I also kept a copy of the wording in case one of my children were to choose the same vows. What a keepsake!
Thank you again and God Bless,

Hello my name is Betsy Raye and I have the best job ever! I am a non denominational wedding officiant/minister and perform wedding ceremonies with great joy, confidence and warmth. Generally I perform ceremonies
from south Seattle to the Canadian border, including the islands. Also, part of the winter months I perform weddings in San Diego. I am most happy to perform your wedding anywhere you envision that momentous day taking place. It is always an
honor to be part in a couples most special day, to be the one to pronounce you husband and wife after that never to be forgotten kiss. I am truly a very lucky person.
Not only do I perform wedding ceremonies, I address many of the details that a wedding planner would look at. My job doesn't end with reading the words at a wedding ceremony. I want your ceremony to be beautiful and perfect. To make that happen I look at every aspect, the timing of music, flowers, placement of chars, tables, lighting, who is seated when, timing of walking, announcements, the list goes on.
For me, it is important that you don't feel stressed so you are able to enjoy your wedding day. The biggest way to do that is to be prepared. I am here to help make that happen. I'm not just an Officiant/Minister that comes and reads a ceremony. I have a huge amount of resources, skills and experience, not to mention the love for what I do.
What do you think makes a good wedding officiant/minister? I think it is the love for what you do, the love for working and helping people, AND some very important skills. 1. Organizaiton/Reliability 2. Enjoy and love public speaking 3. Have the ability to calm any situation. 4. Have a confident, yet warm and joyful personality.
Please feel free to contact me. There is no pressure whatsoever. I am most happy to answer all you questions without any obligation.
