    Would definitely recommend.

    We had a wonderful wedding ceremony! Our officiant was Jeffrey and he was so friendly and knowledgeable. We chose to do a micro wedding due to the pandemic and it was beautiful. We are so happy that we were still able to get married and both Jeffrey and Angela at Enduring Promises were so helpful and accommodating. The online tool was a great guide when deciding how we wanted our ceremony to be. We cannot say enough good things about this company and would definitely recommend them.

    Lovely quick ceremony!

    Enduring Promises had great officiants & webportal! We originally worked with Jim DeMarsh before the COVID lockdowns and he was so kind and open! Unfortunately due to a health concern, he could not officiate our ceremony 2 years later - instead they set us up with the owner, Brian Manuel. The transition was seamless and Brian did a wonderful job! We had a

    Hi Richard,

    It was so much fun to celebrate with you and Joohyun... Thank you for the very kind words. It is extremely unfortunate that Jim wasn't able to be with you but as I mentioned "his loss was my gain" LOL.

    Great experience with Enduring Promises

    Angela was a fantastic officiant. The entire process was flawless. Easy to build and manage our ceremony online. We had to reschedule and switch our date due to COVID, which resulted in us needing to switch officiants due to availability. David (Our OG officiant who was also great) and Angela synced up before we even met Angela, passing on all the info, so we didn't miss a beat.

    The ceremony itself was beautiful and professional.

    Enduring Promises's reply:

    Samantha & Josh,

    Thanks for your kind words. It was a pleasure to be a part of your the beautiful ceremony that you created. Samantha was radiant and you looked pretty dashing as well :)

    Wishing you all the best as you journey though this next chapter of life.

    Amber is amazing!

    Amber was excellent as our officiant. She connected with us at the beginning in the middle and right before the big day. She was cheerful, and made me feel at ease.
    We had a horse at our wedding, and she shared the excitement to have him involved, which was wonderful!
    Will definitely recommend Amber to anyone looking for an officiant.

    Enduring Promises's reply:

    Valerie, it was a pleasure to get to know your family and friends and to be a part of such a beautiful and intimate life event!
    Thank-you for the honour!
    Charlie was stunning with his sunflower braids!

    Excellent!

    We chose Enduring Promises based on a referral from friends and we were very happy! The entire process was easy and seamless. We interviewed Glenn and selected him on the spot! He spent extra time to help us edit our ceremony details and was flexible and accommodating while we navigated changes due to planning during the pandemic. Thanks again!

    Enduring Promises's reply:

    Christina,

    You and Scott were great to work with. Together you created a memorable ceremony, and your venue worked so well to accommodate the ongoing restrictions. It was a 1st class evening with your close family and friends.

    Exceptional Service - Highly Recommend

    I got introduced to Enduring Promises and David Blow on stellar recommendation from a bride whose wedding he had officiated. I reached out via their website which was seamless to navigate and made a special request for David as our officiant and was promptly rewarded with a followup from David himself. We spoke over the phone and I was instantly put at ease. His personality was exactly what I envisioned in an officiant - somebody down to earth who could make us feel relaxed on what had the potential to be a very tense day :) All the communication, payments etc. were efficiently done online which is a plus especially in these times. The pricce point for our micro wedding was competitive with other providers we had reached out to and we found it refreshing that they had customized their offerings to facilitate smaller type ceremonies as we navigate this pandemic. David sent over the proposal for how our wedding ceremony would flow but in addition to that, he also sent over a zip file with multiple variations for the different components of the ceremony. This allowed us to customize our wedding ceremony to something that really represented us as individuals and how we wanted our united story to be told. David was incredibly receptive to the feedback and there was never a time where we felt like suggestions were being pushed at us. We genuinely worked together as a team to craft the ceremony of my dreams. On the day, David arrived ahead of time and, though I was late (my given right on that one day :D) I could hear David laughing and talking with my guests which instantly put me at ease. He has a bubbly personality which really spoke to us and our guests. It also helped to have him standing at the altar with my groom as he waited ...and waited :D
    I will, hands down, recommend Enduring Promises and David Blow for Officiant services every time. Your time will not be wasted if you reach out to them - I promise.

    Enduring Promises's reply:

    Thank you so much for such a wonderful review Celia. We have been living in extraordinary times this past year where we have all had to be adaptable to get the celebration we envision. You both certainly did that. Your intimate location was a perfect space to celebrate. It was wonderful to be able to meet, and visit with your family and friends. The ceremony was wonderful, a real team effort! You are a wonderful little family with a bright future. I wish you nothing but the best.

    Easy, relaxing, the obvious choice!

    We had the pleasure of having Sharon McKenley as the officiant at our civil wedding ceremony at the Guild Inn Estate. Sharon exceeded our expectations by making the wedding party and guests feel comfortable and welcomed. Her sense of humour was able to help the crowd feel relaxed. She also made me feel at ease by checking in with me in the bridal suite before making my way into the ceremony room.

    Working with Enduring Promises' online platform was very simple. My Groom and I were relieved there were built in templates to choose from, that were also easily customizable. Our wedding was non-religious, and it still felt just as powerful as other religious weddings I've attended. I would recommend their website and services to anyone I know planning a wedding.

    Enduring Promises's reply:

    Tessrah and Thinesh,

    Thank you for the wonderful review and taking the time to write. I am really delighted that you enjoyed our time together. Its is very rewarding to know that you and your guests felt relaxed at at home. Also, a big thank you for allowing me to use your live wedding ceremony on my portfolio.

    Keep love in your hearts.

    Amazingly Easy and Just What We Wanted

    Enduring Promises made it incredibly easy to meet an officiant that we connected with, create a beautiful ceremony based on a huge variety of templates, easily customize what we wanted, and overall make the most important part of our wedding day amazing! Within a couple days of meeting Enduring Promises we had a few officiants to choose from that matched our personality as a couple and by the end of the week we met with and confirmed our officiant. We had David Blow as our officiant and he was fantastic! He answered emails within an hour, consulted with us on our ceremony, came early and performed a beautiful ceremony for us. I also loved the ease of online payments in only two installments. Amazing experience that I would recommend to all future couples!

    Enduring Promises's reply:

    Thank you so much for your kind words. It was a pleasure to journey with you through these challenging times. You both persevered beautifully and created the perfect ceremony! Best wishes to you both as you enter into this next season of your life.

    Enduring promises was awesome

    I am thrilled to have found this company and so pleased with our officiant Blair Mercer. Blair met with us to find out a bit about who we are and offered options that would best meet our needs. He went above and beyond in his attentiveness and genuinely seemed to enjoy being a part of our day. He put me at ease with his smile and calm mannerisms and our guests were very impressed with the ceremony, as we’re we.

    Enduring Promises's reply:

    Thanks for the note Ann and Ray. I loved being able to visit your friend's home where you had the wedding, meet your family, and think through the little details of your ceremony. I really loved how you had your 3 granddaughters as flowers girls. That was so so so precious.

    All the best!

    Blair
