David Blow was the best officiant that we could have ever asked for! He by far exceeded our expectations. We immediately felt comfortable and connected with him when we met him. He is very approachable, kind and compassionate, which comes across right away. Most importantly, he was very funny. We were looking for someone who could bring our ceremony to life, and that's exactly what he did, especially with our personal story before the vows! He made the day so enjoyable for both us and our guests. A lot of people commented about both the ceremony and the officiant and said it was amazing. We also want to add that the Wedding Ceremony Console was extremely easy to use. We loved how we could pick each part of our ceremony to piece together exactly how we wanted it to be. It had a lot of different examples that we used and personalized to make our own. Overall, Enduring Promises was an excellent company to work with. They sent out reminders, were organized, punctual and very responsive. Absolute pleasure to work with both the company and David Blow!

Mike Van Slingerland of Enduring Promises was absolutely wonderful to work with. He made us feel so comfortable and like everything was under control and would go smoothly (which it did). He even made suggestions which were much appreciated. I highly recommend their services if you want a wedding designed just for you. The website was super easy to use as well. Thank you for a wonderful wedding day that I will remember forever! Sierra & Peter (July 2016)

We found Ron at Enduring Promises through our wedding venue's preferred vendor list. After choosing an officiant based on their online profiles, we met with Ron Shantz. Immediately after meeting Ron we knew we wanted him to perform our ceremony. He was very friendly, professional, and easy to talk to. As a couple, we clicked with Ron right away. The planning process was made so easy by enduring promise. Their wedding website helped us design our ceremony the way we wanted. It went through each step of the ceremony, gave suggestions for what to say at each part based on what others have done in the past or what Ron thought would fit nicely. While creating our ceremony, Ron had access to it and was able to leave comments along the way. He was so helpful throughout the process and left us questions, comments, and recommendations which really helped us perfect our ceremony. It would have been nearly impossible to create a ceremony from scratch. Without the help of Ron and the wedding ceremony website, we would have been completely lost! The rehearsal is a must! Ron ran through everything with us and gave us many tips and recommendations to make the ceremony run smoothly (how to hold the bouquet, where to stand, how to walk).

On the day of the wedding, we received nothing but praise from our guests about how beautiful the ceremony was and how smoothly it ran with Ron as the officiant. We received numerous compliments from our families as well as the wedding venue team about Ron and how easy he was to work with. We was very organized and calm and had everything under control prior to the ceremony starting. Ron really made us feel special through this process and the days leading up to and after the wedding. We appreciate all your kind words and help along the way. We can truly tell that you love what you do and have been doing this for years! We wish you nothing but the best and will definitely be referring you to our friends and family!

Enduring Promises was one of the easiest and most stress-free vendors to work with during the wedding planning process. While we ran into issues with some of our other vendors in terms of communication, Enduring Promises replied promptly and the expectations of both parties were very clear from the outset. Our Officiant, David Blow, was wonderful to work with. He was very accommodating of our busy schedules and happy to answer any questions that we had along the way. The Wedding Ceremony Console was easy to use and helped us create the exact ceremony that we were looking for. We received so many compliments from our friends and family on the ceremony. We would definitely recommend Enduring Promises.

We just had our wedding at the end of June and were so lucky to have Brian as our officiant. He was always available to answer our questions or to share his opinion when we needed it; his wealth of experience was absolutely invaluable while planning our ceremony! He was so attentive to all the details to ensure the ceremony had a nice flow, and even asked about the wedding colors to ensure his outfit wouldn't clash! We got so many compliments on our ceremony thanks to Brian's guidance throughout the process.
As someone who doesn't normally plan many wedding ceremonies, having the Ceremony Console was incredibly useful: it was easy to use and a great template to work off of. I just can't say enough good things about our experience; even now that the wedding is over we are still getting updates from Brian, who didn't want us to worry about our license being impacted by the potential Canada Post strike, so he's planned for that as well! Enduring Promises was amazing and so easy to work with, I would highly recommend them!

We were recommended to Jim and Enduring Promises by a friend. We met Jim in person and were very impressed with the website tools he showed us and the number of small details he went over with us. My husband loved how easy it was to design the ceremony to fit our needs/wants. Jim went above and beyond my expectations in making everything just right for our ceremony including contacting our vendor to discuss the perfect signing table. We have received so many compliments from guests who felt that everything was so intimate and personal. Thanks so much for everything Jim and Rinette!

Good morning Dana and Rob, You couldn't have ordered a better day or a more scenic venue for your wedding celebration. I thoroughly enjoyed helping you create a very personal wedding ceremony and spending time with you, your family and your wedding party - it seemed like old-home week. Including friends in your ceremony and your grandmother as ring bearer was a unique touch that added to the special memories of the day. I wish you continued joy, much happiness and great prosperity. ~ Jim

When I started looking for a wedding officiant, I had absolutely no idea what to look for. I stumbled upon reviews for Enduring Promises on this website, and after reading more about personalizing your own ceremony, I realized this was definitely the company for us. Jim Giles performed our ceremony, and was extremely professional and down-to-earth. He was available at any time, and answered emails within minutes (even in the evening, or on weekends!). These emails were not limited to our ceremony, but anything that had to do with our wedding. He was helpful, and happy to provide us with any insight he could.

The ceremony was amazing, literally everything I could have ever wished for. There wasn't a dry eye in the entire audience (even our photographer shed a few tears!). We received so many compliments on how professional Jim was - he takes his job seriously, and you can tell he really invests himself in each of the couples he helps. It was a pleasure to have him at our day, and I would recommend him to anyone looking for an officiant in the future! - Amanda & Kent, June 2016

Jim Emerson was amazing!!! I would highly recommend his services to anyone looking for a very personalized and beautiful ceremony. Jim lead my husband and I though the whole process so it was easy to do yet we still ended up with a ceremony all our guests were talking about; comments from our guests included "It was so beautiful", "It was so you!", "The ceremony was so personal I loved it!". Jim exceeded all of our expectations and helped make planning the ceremony not only fun but stress-free.

The online Ceremony Console that Enduring Promises has set up is a key component to how well we were able to plan our ceremony. It walked us through all the possible aspects of a ceremony we could hope to include and gave examples of each section which we could use or personalize as we preferred. In the end it was the console that provided us with the structure and base for our ceremony and Jim's excellent recommendations and expertise that allowed it to flow seamlessly.

Overall I would change absolutely nothing about our ceremony and I would truly recommend Enduring Promises, and specifically Jim Emerson, to any couple looking for the very best Officiant services.

Thank you so much Jim and the whole Enduring Promises team for everything!!!

Thank you for your very supportive and kind words, but let's not forget that you guys did the work to create a very personal ceremony. Several guests came up to me after your celebration and commented on how much they enjoyed your ceremony. One of your guests said it was the most emotional and memorable wedding she had ever attended. And based on the reaction from "Your Love Story" and the readings by Mike's sisters, your guests thoroughly enjoyed and were engaged in your ceremony - which is what you said you were hoping for. Again I wish you continued happiness and great health. ~ Jim
