Reverend Ray Martinez, affectionately known as "Rev. Ray Mar" has been a professional DJ and Master of Ceremonies for over 40 years. Ray Mar was searching for peace in his life when he finally committed his life to Christ at the Billy Graham Crusade in Anaheim Stadium in July 1985. His faith in Christ is what drove him to be the Co-Founder of CrossMix, a Christian ministry for DJ's in 2000. Although he is still active as a DJ/Entertainer and CEO of Ray Mar Productions, LLC, he truly feels his calling is ministering to people whether it be through music or ministry. He was ordained on January 25, 2007 by New Horizon Ministry.
"Ray was AMAZING! His main job is as a DJ, for which I hear he is awesome; however, for us, he performed officiant duties and our wedding was absolutely beautiful. Our family needed a neutral officiant to administer our ceremony because both families come from very strong (but very different) religious backgrounds. Ray worked with us, our families, and our other guests amazingly. He knew just what we wanted and delivered amazingly well."
--Matt & Shondra O'Meara
DID YOU HEAR WHAT WAS SAID ABOUT TWO HEARTS AS ONE WEDDINGS?
"Ray Mar is absolutely the best. He made our wedding happen and kept the party going. He is as professional and yet totally went above and beyond as if we were family. He is DJ, Officiant, Comedian and Photographer in one. If I had to do it all over again I would hire him in an instant. He is worth every penny. RAY MAR ROCKS!! WE love you!!"
--John & Christy Vaniman, Murrieta, California
"Ray provided an exceptional wedding ceremony. He picked the perfect place and time of the day as the vows were confirmed the spectacular view of the sunset overlooking the lake at Estrella Country Club provided the perfect mood for some stunning, unforgettable memories and pictures. Ray, I can't thank you enough for your dedication and professionalism , as you truly embrace a magnificent and beautiful wedding experience!"
--Humberto & Maria Martinez
"From the moment we met Ray we knew we wanted him to perform our wedding ceremony. He truly cared about us and our wants and needs. He met with us about a month before our wedding and we spoke with him for about an hour, just getting to know each other better. Our wedding ceremony was beautiful and he even made little jokes here and there. Even after our wedding he was great, we actually emailed him to see if we could get a copy of the vows and wedding ceremony and he was more than happy to, I believe he had it out to us within three days. He is a wonderful person and again is great to work with and we are so glad to have had the opportunity for him to perform our wedding ceremony."
--Christina & Lex Marin
"Ray Mar Productions is a great DJ and Officiant service. He is available to meet on your time and will make any celebration that much more memorable. Me and my wife absolutely loved having him marry us and take care of the entertainment for our wedding. He also did 3 of our friends and families weddings. Good times are to be had with Ray Mar."
--Christopher & Lisa Carayas
"Was a great officiant! After my other officiant backed out he stepped in to help us in our time of need! Both families loved him! Made it a great memory :)"
--Richelle & Matt Williams
"Three years ago we attended a wedding where Ray Mar was being the officiant and DJ so when it was our turn to get married we knew exactly who we wanted to do these services for us, there was only one, Ray Mar! We planned our wedding from over sees so it was a little complicated but Ray Mar was nothing but positive and flexible. We met him twice before the wedding, once before we booked him (for general information) and once right before the event (to go though our day and all the details). Ray Mar was always on time, polite, open, and had a good balance between listening and giving advice. The meetings never felt rushed, he always took his time. On the day of the event he had everything under control! He made our ceremony beautiful, romantic and special but also funny. A great balance between the seriousness of a wedding ceremony and humor, which reflected his work even during the reception. He was very professional and made us feel as calm. At the reception Ray Mar's excellent performance continued. We did not have to worry about anything, he took care of it all! He played a great mix of music, spontaneously and attentively gave our little flower girls the microphone when he saw them sing along to their favourite song (which melted everyones hearts) and really entertained everybody from young to old. He had a great, positive attitude and everybody had a blast! He even jumped in and danced with us! We really recommend Ray Mar as both the officiant and DJ. His services are so worth the money and his pricing is VERY reasonable. He really deserves a million bucks if you would put a value on his work. Even our friends, that are about to get married, are planning to hire him from what they experienced at our event. Ray Mar is not only a vendor, he becomes a trustworthy, important, loving, supporting part of your lives. He engages in you, your marriage and does everything to make you have the best day of your lives, which we did!"
--Wally & Martina Pareda, Stockholm Sweden
"Ray was the officiant who preformed our ceremony and he is AMAZING!! Our ceremony was personalized like we wanted and he even tossed in some very thoughtful words which meant a lot to me and my husband. He is 100% professional and one of the sweetest people that we have ever met. Everyone at the wedding told us that they loved every word from his mouth at the ceremony. We were touched by how he offered us his counseling should we ever need it free of charge. He stayed and met the whole family after the wedding, which I thought was very sweet. Everyone had nothing but good things to say about him. If you choose Ray you will not be disappointed."
--Rafael & Mayra Torre
"Ray Mar is attentive, responsive & passionate. I would recommend his services. Great guy , fun service, we are very satisfied."
--Kevin & Jordan Spellman
Oh my gosh what an incredible service Ray gave! I had so many people come up to me to say what a wonderful job he did at my ceremony! I could not have asked for a better guy, a better ceremony, a better day. Thank you Ray for doing such a beautiful job! I'm telling you, this is the perfect guy for a ceremony. I had been to four weddings the same year I got married and nothing compared to what Ray delivered!
--Ashly & Ross Pitzley
"Reverend Ray supported us from the moment we met him. He performed a wondeful ceremony on the happiest day of our lives, and has given us valuable advice on marriage over the course of our engagement."
--Nick & Christina Bird
"When my daughter's officiant told her 6 weeks before the wedding he wasn't available to do her ceremony we were freaked out. I called Mrs Hancock who immediately said 'call Ray Martinez. He's a wonderful man'. After getting the run-around from the other guy my daughter was very nervous, but Ray-Mar called back immediately, discussed the type of ceremony they wanted and put her mind to rest that not only was Ray going to perform exactly the ceremony they wanted, but he could be relied upon!! He did not disappoint. The ceremony was beautiful, the perfect mix of Bible, love and humor by a warm and caring man. Our guests commented that they enjoyed visiting with him as well."
--Charlie & Kaitlin Kmiecik
"Ray was a joy to have officiate our Wedding, he kept everyone focused on the Ceremony and worked in some humor which was fantastic. We had everyone mention that the Ceremony was the best."
--Jeff & Katie Marshall
"Ray was awesome to work with!!! He came up with very creative ways of personalizing our ceremony and helped us customize it to what we wanted. He included the story of how we met which gave our guests a better knowledge of why we were all there to celebrate! Ray created a ceremony that was serious when needed, as well as including moments that made us all laugh! I would highly recommend Ray to anyone!!"
--Luke & Jennifer Renchan, Newport, Rhode Island
"Ray Mar was fantastic!!! To be honest he was great, he was able to work around us. Ray actually got very sick the morning of our wedding. Instead of cancelling (which he should have) he came to our wedding and did the ceremony before he took himself to the hospital. I am not saying I recommend it. But it was great that he had that much commitment to us and our special day. Thanks again Ray Mar!!!"
--Zachary & Allie Colman
"Ray Mar was amazing! I couldn't ask for a better officiant and DJ. Everyone thout Ray Mar was part of my family by the way he delivered his service. I HIGHLY recommend him!"
--Jack & Elaine Guise
"Such an amazing guy. He was so helpful in us deciding how we wanted to have our wedding ceremony in regards to the wording, added a few funny comments in there, and performed the ceremony differently than I've ever seen before at a wedding. Instead of standing behind us, he stood in the aisle so we were facing our friends and family as we said our vows. He has such wisdom and is willing to give marriage advice if you need it. Highly recommended!"
--Brittany & Justin Dezso
"The beauty of a woman is seen in her eyes because that is the doorway to the heart, the place where love resides."
"Ray was such a blessing to us. From the moment we met at our first meeting to our wedding day, Ray was a wonderful addition. He customized our vows to what we requested and was helpful in ideas to include our blended families. Many guests specifically complimented Ray's officiating talent and we were equally impressed. My husband and I consider Ray a friend and he was a special gift to us on our wedding day."
