To start, our officiant (specifically Mike) was very thoughtful and very personal. He wanted to make sure everything down to the pictures was perfect. On the day of the wedding he was stuck in traffic but managed to quickly make his way to the venue on time!

During the ceremony he was very funny and was great with the guests! - and clearly very experienced.

There isn't anything negative to say about Enduring promises - they really cater to your needs and your needs are always first.

Belma made our 10 year vow renewal everything we wanted it to be. She was incredibly professional and because you can build your own ceremony we were able to make the entire thing relevant to a vow renewal.

We had Jim Giles as our officiant and I can honestly say he made our wedding. He was so professional and personable and the way he speaks you feel like he's known you forever. Having never married before, Jim really shared his ins and outs and gave incredible insight to how everything would work. The wedding was 100% us as a couple. It was laid back just like us, but it was totally up to us how serious, religious, long, short, loud, quiet you name it! Strongly recommended! Thank you so much

My husband and I had the pleasure of seeing Mike from Enduring Promises officiate one of our good friends weddings two years ago. Though we were not engaged I knew from then, that when that day came Mike was definitely the guy to do the job. A year later we got engaged and he was the first person I emailed! I did not want to hesitate and miss out on the opportunity for Mike to officiate our wedding. From the moment we came into contact he was nothing but kind, courteous and genuinely excited. We loved his genuine excitement to begin this journey with us. It showed us that we had definitely made the right decision to choose him and Enduring Promises. From the beginning, Mike began to take care of the details and set up meetings to ensure that we were on the right track. During those meetings Mike informed us of every detail from beginning to last for our wedding ceremony. Being the newly engaged couple we weren't sure of the type of ceremony we wanted, but Mike was able to talk us through and was able to determine what we wanted. My favourite thing about Mike was his way of taking care of us and making sure we had the best ceremony posssible. He always said that he takes the thinking out of getting married, literally! This allowed us to relax and keep calm which was really helpful the day of the wedding and leading up to. We were relaxed and confident that Mike knew what he was doing and that he was going to take care of us! The ceremony itself was a huge success, not only did we love what he did but my family did too! Both my husband and I come from catholic backgrounds and the expectation was to get married in a church. Therefore, the day of the wedding your nerves get the best of you and you hope that your family enjoys the ceremony and appreciates your decision to get married outside the church. Mike proved them wrong and our families had nothing but amazing things to say about Mike and the ceremony he performed! We can't thank him enough for everything!!

Ron Shantz was our officiant and we couldn't be happier. From the initial meeting straight through to after our ceremony was over Ron was very professional but also very friendly and personable.

One of the things that drew me to Enduring Promises was the make your own ceremony. The online tool was great as it gave you a guideline to follow, but also allowed you to make it your own so the ceremony was personalized to our taste and needs. Ron was super helpful in helping us make adjustments along the way as needed!

I would highly recommend Enduring Promises!

Thank you Jessica and Sergio.

You were truly a delight to work with as you created the ceremony you always envisioned.

We are very pleased that you found the online Console helpful and easy to change to suit your particular personalities.

The whimsical way you included Angus, and the very special closing words and pause you included is something I will now recommend to other couples - thanks for the very unique idea.

I wish you all the best and many blessings throughout the years to come. ~ Ron

Our officiate, Paul, did an amazing job and was an important part of making our day perfect. We very much appreciated his advice, help, and above all made the ceremony go smoothly. He made it all so easy for us we were able to focus entirely on each other and our guests.

Hi Christine and Doug

I thoroughly enjoyed sharing your Special Day with you! Your wine ceremony was so appropriate as we overlooked the beautiful Vineyard Estates Winery on the Niagara Escarpment.

I wish you abundant blessing and favour in the years ahead. ~ Paul

We were married on June 21st, 2014 and our Officiant was Pam Moss. We absolutely love Pam. She is a very warm, loving, caring, sweet woman with a sense of humour. From the first moment we met her, we wanted her to be our Officiant. She responded efficiently to our email inquiries. Most of all, she learned about us, what was important to us and ensured that the ceremony happened the way we wanted. Pam has made our ceremony very special. Our guests also commented on how they love the whole ceremony.

Ensuring Promise has made it very simple for you to put together the ceremony because they provide you with an outline of options through a template.

Absolutely love the experience and will definitely recommend it.

Mike was amazing from the first meeting. He was really good at explaining everything, walking us through each step, answering our many questions and offering suggestions on why it's a good idea to do things in a certain order, how to organize our custom ceremony, etc. The online planning tool was awesome - it allowed us to go through on our own time and narrow down the ceremony elements we wanted. Having a second meeting and rehearsal was really helpful for making sure nothing got missed, especially since we had a big bridal party, Mike has a great sense of humour and made everyone feel at ease - we all had a blast doing the rehearsal! On the day of the wedding, we had absolutely no worries about the ceremony and felt so comfortable with it that we were able to actually enjoy the whole thing rather than stressing about what we were supposed to do and when. Our guests kept commenting on what a beautiful ceremony it was and what a great officiant we had - even the ones who were initially a little skeptical about non-traditional ceremonies!

We contacted Enduring Promises early in the process of planning our wedding and they didn't disappoint in the least. Their online planning tool was amazing at helping use set up the flow and what we wanted included in our ceremony and made our decision to select them that much easier. Our officiant Jim DeMarsh was amazing, helpful and calming when we needed it the most and we had numerous comments on how professional he was. I couldn't recommend Jim and Enduring Promises more.

I loved using the online ceremony building tool to customize our ceremony. It was easy to use and made the ceremony really unique and reflective of us as a couple. We worked with Rinette Emerson, who has kind, polite and SUPER knowledgeable. Without all of her tips and suggestions, the ceremony would not have gone as successfully as it did. She was truly a pleasure to work with!

Thank you Cat and Craig!
Your day was a delight and I had so much fun participating in it!
There were so many highlights - from the Bagpipes to the Poem read by your Dad and so many, many more!
May your days be ever sweeter and your love for each other, ever stronger!

Richard was our officiant and did a fantastic job. From our first meeting with Richard many months in advance, we were immediately struck by his professionalism. The wedding builder that Enduring Promises offers on their website was a huge help for us as we pieced together our ceremony. We scripted some of it entirely from scratch and Richard delivered it flawlessly. Along the way he was quick to offer advice or ask questions to fill in any gaps we had. He led our rehearsal like a pro and ensured everyone -- from us to the flower girls and everyone in between -- knew what was expected of them on the big day. The whole thing flowed perfectly.

We'd absolutely recommend Enduring Promises and Richard in particular to any soon-to-be-weds.

We used Enduring Promises for our wedding on June 13, 2014 - we found our officiant (RInette) at the Wedding Show in Toronto. Instantly we had a great connection with Rinette - she is pleasant, easy to talk to, very understanding and really listened to what we wanted for a ceremony. We also truly appreciated Rinette's helpful advice during the rehearsal - she gave us great pointers related to where to look and what to do throughout the ceremony and those pieces allowed the ceremony to feel that much more personal. Rinette was also very patient with us (as we sent her our vows late the night before) and she had them printed for us and ready in case we needed them. Even weeks later friends and family are commenting about just how wonderful our officiant was and how she truly contributed to making the day such a success. Rinette exceeded our expectations!
The entire process with Enduring Promises was very easy - their easy to use website and all of the options available for your ceremony are great- they give you full control of your wedding ceremony and allow you to make it exactly what you want. The company, online services and most importantly Rinette our officiant was incredible! We cannot say enough positive things about our experience!

Thank you so much for your lovely words Amanda and Kevin.
The love you share is such a special love and I feel honored to have been a part of your wedding celebration!
I think we all smiled as the cutest flower girls ever walked down the aisle in those cute tutu's and we wiped away a tear during your vows. In short the day was magical, and may the rest of your love story be the same. Magical!

Our officiant was Jim Emerson. He was extremely professional in all aspects of the planning and ceremony execution. After our initial meeting, he was very responsive to e-mails and phone calls. Right before the ceremony, he gathered the wedding party to go through a quick rehearsal and gave instructions to the DJ and venue staff for reading his cues. This part exceeded my expectations. It was obvious he truly cared about his work and had a personal interest in getting the ceremony to run as smoothly as possible. Without any reservation, I would recommend his services.

Hi Yannie and Lawrence

Thank you for your words of support and for inviting me to participate in your wedding celebration.

One sentence you said in your vows that will always stand out for me; "But after I met you, I realized how much I was missing." What a beautiful way to communicate the love you have for one another.

I wish you much joy and happiness as you begin your live together as husband and wife. ~ Jim

The first time we met with Rinette, we fell in love with her accent! She's always so passionate, kind, caring, and professional that she made sure we knew exactly what to say and do at the ceremony. We had a large bridal party but under her guidance everything went so smoothly! She gave us great suggestions to make our ceremony unique, and her sense of humour definitely made everyone feel at ease! I thought I would be super nervous that day but I was actually relaxed was able to enjoy myself!

Our ceremony was absolutely perfect and all of our guests were in tears of joy! Once again, thank you so much Rinette for making our ceremony so wonderful and unforgettable! We would highly recommend Enduring Promises to anyone who is looking to have a dream wedding!
