Positively unforgettable experience
Belma from the Enduring Promises team was our wonderful wedding officiant and she was absolutely fantastic to work with. She helped us create a wedding ceremony that my husband and I will never forget. The emotions evoked during our ceremony were some of the most profound ones I had ever felt. She encouraged us throughout the process, was patient and always willing to guide us when we were feeling overwhelmed or lost. I would absolutely recommend Belma and Enduring Promises to any couple looking for a wedding officiant!
Enduring Promises's reply:
Fasebe and Robert,
You are such a precious couple! Thank you for your kind words! It was my pleasure to work with you to create such an outstanding ceremony!
Your heartfelt vows were unforgettable—there wasn’t a dry eye in the place!! I wish you both much happiness as you embark on this "adventure of a lifetime”! from my heart….your Officiant Belma

No Joke, everyone asked us how we knew our Officiant
Let me count the ways I loved our Officiant (Chris). He was there for us at the beginning sussing out what our vision was for the ceremony and offering recommendations on what additional things we should include, such as family traditions or involving the grandparents.
And everyone loved our him because he kept everything light and friendly while he was greeting the guests and directing them to be seated. I mean, you know, someone needed to entertain the guests while we (I) was 15-20 minutes behind schedule due to hair and makeup. But we managed to stay organized and pull off an intimate, short ceremony in like 15 minutes. And people liked that it was short and sweet.
Overall, everyone was asking how we knew our Officiant because he didn't seem like a traditional stuffy Officiant and acted like he knew us and was a guest himself.
He made a lasting impression on the crowd.

Couldn't be happier
Enduring Promises came recommended to me from my cousin who's friend used it to find her officant. I contacted Enduring Promises and someone emailed me back very quickly giving me options for officants that would best fit our non religious wedding ceremony. We met Brian and instantly knew he'd be perfect. He made everything less stressful by giving us ideas for our ceremony. The website was very easy to use and extremely helpful. We were able to use examples and change them to fit our ideas for our perfect ceremony. Brian supported us the entire way and made it so easy. When the big day came I was so relieved to see Brian's smiling face, he was so personable and very professional. Brian made the entire process stress free and helped design our ceremony template. I would recommend Brian and Enduring Promises to anyone and everyone. This was truly an amazing experience and there is nothing we would have changed.
Enduring Promises's reply:
Thank you for the very kind words.
It was such an honour to serve you and Elliott on your special day and help you fulfill your vision for your ceremony. You created a personal, memorable, and a unique ceremony that was so much fun.
Both you and Elliott looked like you were truly enjoying the day and it was great to see you so relaxed and having fun together.

Our Officiant, Jim, was absolutely fantastic! When we met him for the consultation, he provided us with so many tips, tricks and heartfelt suggestions to incorporate our family into the ceremony. This carried through in all of our planning. He puts a tremendous amount of heart into helping his couples create a truly perfect ceremony. We valued so many of his suggestions that we implemented many of them! On our wedding day, he took so much care to make us and our families feel comfortable, and again, provide suggestions for a seamless ceremony. Plus the little touches, like emails on the morning of the wedding and the day after, mean the world to us.
We chose Enduring Promises because we saw them at a wedding show. The idea of using their online console to build a personalized ceremony, drew us in. We so enjoyed using the online portal to create a ceremony that was perfectly us. Jim and I were able to communicate, bounce ideas around and answer questions back and forth, until we found the perfect fit. It is beyond easy to use, and completely customize-able, but with very good prompts and suggestions when a little help is needed. So many of our guests told us and Jim, how much they loved the ceremony!
All in all, it was an absolutely amazing experience working with Jim and Enduring Promises. We can't say enough good things about them.

Michael Krause was Great!
Michael was amazing. He kept us calm & was very professional in his approach. We were confident all our ceremony and certificate needs would be taken care of. Meeting with Michael before our wedding was a big part of why we chose him.
Enduring Promises’ online ceremony tool is REALLY good. There are a lot of helpful suggestions for vows, readings etc that helps make the entire process much less stressful. The ability to provide the officiant with as much or little info as possible with the addition of suggestions is so crucial.
As a company - Enduring Promises are very fair and flexible. We found them highly affordable, and they had a wide range of officiants available for us to meet.

Belma was fantastic throughout the ceremony and made it a memorable moment for us and our family. Thanks to Belma for her professionalism and kindness. With her experience, she worked with us to tailor a beautiful ceremony which created a lasting memory for us and our family. Belma thanks again for making it a memorable day for Joanne and I; we really appreciate it! If you are looking for an unforgettable ceremony; we strongly suggest that you engage Belma!

Enduring promises- Brian (officiant).
Enduring promises provided prompt and excellent service that made the impossible task of writing a wedding ceremony possible. The console gives you lots of ideas and yet gives you the freedom to make sure your ceremony feels like “you.” My husband and I received countless compliments on our ceremony regarding how “personal” it felt. It was really important to us to have a family member do most of our ceremony. Brian Manuel did an amazing job of co-officiating and coaching my brother to be able to give us the ceremony of our dreams. Brian also took the lead at our rehearsal to make sure everyone was on the same page. His experience and professionalism was very obvious. He made us feel way more relaxed about our ceremony running smoothly and many guests commented on how much they enjoyed working with him. We would highly recommend enduring promises as a company... but it was really the amazing Brian who made our ceremony come to life.
My only constructive feedback for the company would be to alter the formatting interface on the console. I had to copy and paste into a word document to easily add and change the inserted verses from the console. Font and formatting options would also be nice to be able to split up various people speaking throughout the ceremony. Lastly, it would be nice to be able to see/ print the ceremony in entirety while creating it so that you can get a better feel of the overall flow. Still though... worth every penny.

Guild Inn Wedding - September 2018
We had the pleasure of having Rob from Enduring Promises officiate our wedding.
He was so kind and friendly, and did a great job making us feel at ease during our ceremony. We met with him prior to booking, where he detailed the process for us and made things very simple. He gave some great tips, recommendations, and met with us before for a rehearsal and gave even more tips and feedback then.
Everything went perfectly and I would gladly recommend their services to anyone.

We had Jim DeMarsh as our officiant for our wedding in Sept 2018. He was so lovely to work with! It was like getting married by a fun dad :) We also love the amount of customization of the ceremony that the website offers, anid how it gives you lots of potential options for both religious and non-religious ceremonies. Jim was also very helpful, but not pushy, with suggestions on how to make our ceremony flow better. We had a very small and relaxed ceremony, so we did not do a rehearsal, so I can't comment on that, but it was an option offered to us.

Chris was absolutely AWESOME!
We LOVE Chris! He's laid back, extremely funny and easy to get along with. He made everything very seamless, it felt like we were old friends and he was part of our journey the whole way. Always on our side and gave amazing suggestions. He made our ceremony special in every way and we couldn't imagine it without him. Amazing personality and very charismatic. All of our guests loved him as well! We highly recommend him!!
