INFO FOR OFFICIANT

What officiant services do you provide?
Civil Union, Interfaith Ceremony, Non-religious Ceremony, Single Religion Ceremony
Can you accommodate the hearing impaired?
No
Are you willing to perform a ceremony at a non-religious site?
Enduring Promises has Officiated wedding ceremonies at banquet halls, in provincial and city parks, residential backyards and on harbour boat cruises. You name the place, and it's more than likely that we have Officiated a ceremony there. We will do everything possible to accommodate your venue request.
What is your attire for the ceremony?
Unless requested otherwise, our Officiants always wear a dark business suit.
Are you flexible in the wording used throughout the ceremony, including the vows?
Yes! As Enduring Promises helps to build your ceremony from the ground up, we do not have any pre-scripted ceremonies. Therefore, we are extremely flexible regarding the wording of your ceremony...including your vows.
Do you allow the couple to write their own vows, if desired?
Yes! The Enduring Promises online template offers couples over 40 different vows to use as a bases from which to write their personal vows to one another.
Do you have a list of readings pre-selected, from which the couple must choose?
Although we offer over 25 different readings to choose from, our template allows you to upload any reading you would like to included in your ceremony. When it comes to creating your ceremony, there are no limitations with our online wedding template.
How long are your ceremonies?
As you are the ones that are creating your ceremony, you choose what you want to include, therefore the length will vary with each couple. Based on the couple's vision for their ceremony, it could last from 10 to 45 minutes, maybe longer depending on the couple's personalities and desires.
Do you require that premarital counseling be done?
No, that's up to the couple.
Are you willing to perform pre-ceremony rehearsals?
Yes! Couples spend a considerable amount of money and time preparing for their Special Day and therefore, we encourage couples to consider a rehearsal to "work out the bugs". Sometimes a rehearsal is not necessary, but if you do want us to lead your rehearsal, we'll be there!

Our officiant was Pam Moss. She was really informative and she provided us with the tools/resources that made our ceremony a breeze. Right from the beginning, Pam help make the process smooth and relaxing for both the bride and groom and it was stress free. The comments from our guest was that "it was the most beautiful ceremony ever" we could definitely tell by their reaction.
Thank you Pam!

Our Officiant's name was Jim Giles from Enduring Promises, and all I have to say is he was 100 percent amazing. Jim not only did everything we asked him to do in our ceremony, he went beyond and above by making it more personal by adding his own personal words of how much he loved our ceremony and the fact that we wanted it so family orientated. Jim is such a kind and caring man who is amazing at what he does. He made my husband and I so comfortable when deciding what to include in our ceremony. He also comforted us on our wedding day, as well as our family members. I completely recommend Enduring Promises to anyone. Thank you so much Jim for everything. You are truly an amazing person.

Words cannot express how pleased my husband and I were with the services of Enduring Promises! Our officiant was Jim Emerson and he was nothing short of outstanding. From our very first meeting with Jim, we liked him right away and he proved to have a wealth of knowledge not only on wedding ceremonies but also some great relationship tips. He was punctual for any meeting we had, quick to respond to emails or phone calls and always made you feel like you were his number one priority. Jim's creativity, humour, and passion helped give us the confidence to make the ceremony our own! What can sometimes unfortunately feel like a monotonous part of a wedding, our ceremony was warm and fun and our guests couldn't stop telling us how much they enjoyed it! Enduring Promises as a company was also excellent! Very fast to respond to any inquiry and the ceremony console provided is amazing! Honestly, the planning and execution of our ceremony was one of the easiest parts of our wedding. I would highly recommend this vendor!!!

Dear Tania and Roger

I thoroughly enjoyed helping you create a very unique wedding ceremony, totally fitting your choice of wedding venue at the Eglinton Grand. Your family and friends were so welcoming they made me feel like one of the family.

Takia and Jady each added a very personal touch to your ceremony with the readings they shared with your guests - it was truly a wonderful wedding celebration.

Thank you for asking me to be part of your celebration, and I wish you much prosperity and laughter. ~ Jim

Richard Bristow at Enduring Promises conducted our ceremony. The company was really easy to work with, and very timely with their responses. Richard did a wonderful job and we would highly recommend him! Upon meeting him, he was warm and completely met our expectations. He was great with reminding us (by email) to get to work on our ceremony (via console) especially since we had a million things to do and we were REALLY getting down to the wire. We liked that the console had samples to "click and drop in" and that we could modify everything and anything that we wanted. it was helpful and easy to use. On the day of, Richard hyped up our guests before the ceremony started. His British accent made the whole ceremony even more memorable. He demonstrated great voice (pace, tone, volume) as he read. He was warm and genuine which really relaxed me (the bride) once I got up to the altar. He included a bit of humour as well to help ease the nerves. I was really reluctant in wanting to read my vows and as I had predicted, I started to choke up when I began. He whispered to me in a really sincere way to "relax, take your time" which meant A LOT to me. I needed someone to reassure me that I could get to the end and after those words of encouragement, I did it! It was the most nerve-racking part of the whole day. We had our dog be our ring-bearer and Richard was funny in saying "May the ring-bearer please make his way to the altar!" and everyone had a great surprise and a good laugh in between the tears of joy as our little pooch made his way down the aisle to greet us. My only regret is not having been able to say goodbye to Richard right after the ceremony as I was instructed to go directly to the the bridal suite and wait there until the crowd cleared so that we could start photos right away. So, goodbye and thank you Richard for sharing in our special day!

Thank you Natasha and Rommel for your exceptional testimonial and words of encouragement.

It was a delight to take part in your wedding day celebrations with your friends and family. You created a unique and very personal wedding ceremony. Unique not only in your vows, but with the inclusion of ‘Casper’ - the best four legged ring bearer I have ever had the pleasure of working with! I'm sure you adequately rewarded him for his efforts.

I also thoroughly enjoyed the ‘Pinning of the Rosemary’ ceremonial element. It is such a personal and memorable Serbian wedding tradition.

I trust that the symbols of Rosemary will bring love, happiness, health and prosperity that will continue throughout your life’s journey as husband and wife.

Best Wishes to you. ~ Richard

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.

I had contacted a few different sites, and Enduring Promises was the only site that offered a selection of officiants and the chance to meet with them before selecting our officiant. It was important for us that we found someone that matched our personalities and beliefs. We were extremely happy after meeting with Richard. He was professional, organized, and made us feel at ease.(and we thought his accent would add a nice delivery to our ceremony) He was also a big help in guiding me through the flow and order of our ceremony. I didn`t want the standard, traditional vows you hear at every wedding. We wanted our ceremony to reflect us, and how we felt towards marriage and each other. We chose each affirmation, vow, reading from the huge selection on the site. We received many compliments and comments on our ceremony from our guests. We couldn't be happier with how everything turned out and I would recommend Enduring Promises, and specifically Richard to anyone looking for an officiant.

Hi Rebecca and Mark,

Thank you for your gracious words of support. It was my pleasure to play a small role in your wedding celebration and I am thrilled that your guests enjoyed and complimented you on the ceremony you created together.

It was truly wonderful to feel the enthusiasm of both sets of parents in affirming the new addition to their families and how each mother was so moved when you presented them with a rose.

Although it was grey and raining outside, there was much love and warmth flowing during your ceremony.

I wish you much joy and happiness as you begin your life together as husband and wife. Thank you for allowing me to share in your special day. ~ Richard

Jim Emerson was our officiant, as provided by Enduring Promises, and my bride and I are very pleased with Jim during our wedding ceremony. He was very professional and clearly experienced providing us with many useful tips for making our ceremony memorable and enjoyable. During the day of there were some adjustments required to our ceremony and Jim was able to step up and help us make sure things went off without a hitch and was successful despite the changes.

The Enduring Promises console was very helpful in providing us with a basis to start building our ceremony. Jim was also invaluable throughout this process helping us build a personalized ceremony.

Enduring Promises as a company was very prompt with responding to our inquiries, as well as taking payment and provide proof of payment.

All in all, we are very pleased with Enduring Promises, and specifically Jim Emerson as our wedding officiant.

Thanks Jim!

Enduring Promises was recommended to us by a wedding coordinator, I am so happy we choose to go with them. They were so quick to respond to my inquiry and sent us a few options to choose from for who we would like to officiate our wedding. We chose Jim Emerson, he contacted us quickly and met with him a few days later. He was fantastic! He was so knowledgeable about the process and encouraged us to have a unique ceremony that would hold our guests attention, which was exactly what we were looking for. He was very helpful and quick to respond while we were creating the ceremony using the online tool they offer (which was fantastic) and had wonderful feedback that helped us make our ceremony so special.

We had Jim at our rehearsal and he did a great job at directing everyone on where they needed to be as well as what to expect on the day of. He took away a lot of stress from both myself and my (now) husband.

On the day of the wedding we both received a lovely email giving us some encouraging words as we prepared for the wedding later that afternoon. He did a lovely job at reading the ceremony, he had so much enthusiasm and clarity in his voice he kept everyone's attention. We received many positive comments on how great our ceremony was and how great Jim was.

I was so worried that the ceremony would be a bore, and between Jim and Enduring Promises they made it one of the best parts of our wedding day.

Thank you so much to both Jim and Enduring Promises for helping to make our day so special!

Hi Mr. & Mrs. Banks (It has a nice ring to it, don't you agree?)

You created a very unique ceremony at a very unique venue. It was a beautiful day to celebrate surrounded by your friends, family and the water!

Your beetle limo and bag piper also added to your very personal ceremony.

Thank you for the pleasure of participating in your celebration, and I wish you much happiness in the years ahead. ~ Jim

Our officiant was Richard Bristow who did an exceptional job on our wedding day. He made the ceremony stress free by walking us through the process and always making himself available in the event we had any questions. Richard also helped ease our minds with offering to print out our vows and handing them to us at the appropriate time during the ceremony.

The Enduring Promises wedding console was extremely helpful and it made choosing readings and the layout of our ceremony exceptionally easy. There is nothing I can think of that would need to be changed with this service. It was easy to navigate and very self-explanatory.

Overall Enduring Promises was a great company to work with and I would highly recommend them to any of my friends who are looking for an officiant for their wedding.

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

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!

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!!

Our ceremony was great! We received a lot of positive feedback from our families about how organized Brad Brownell was at the rehearsal and our families really appreciated that. From the perspective of the Bride and Groom, we wouldn't have changed a thing. The officiant, Brad Brownell, did a great job! We found things organized, calm, and lovely. We also really appreciated the message Brad shared during the ceremony. Brad also contributed a unique idea about taking a group photo at the end of the ceremony with all wedding guests. This was a great idea, and something that we had not previously considered. We can't wait to see this particular photo when we get our pictures back. We would and will definitely recommend Brad Brownell to people needing someone for their wedding in the future.

Jim Emmerson was a great officiant, he had so much knowledge that it was easy to trust him and his abilities and to be able to let go of this part of the wedding planning. It was nice to go with a company that did all of the work for you so to speak...although technically, everything is up to the bride and groom because you get to personalize every detail of the ceremony through the console. With that said though , there are suggestions for every single thing, and we sent everything to Jim for review and he was very prompt in giving feedback, very positive and made us both feel relaxed while growing our trust in him. It took some time to create our ceremony, but it is such a special part of the day, that it was worth it. We also had a rehearsal where Jim's advice was very much needed to guide us through a tough situation and he was very clear on everyone's duties for the day of, and I cannot stress how smoothly things went on the day of as a result. Thanks Jim!

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!

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 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.

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!

If you are hesitant at all about using Enduring Promises and specifically Richard Bristow; fear not! He was absolutely amazing. The process was so smooth and easy and helped to reduce our stress. His sense of humor and easy-going attitude may the day all the more special. The ceremony console was actually very fun as my fiance and I went through the many options choosing what suited us best. Very customizable. Richard helped with every question we had in a very timely manner. If you are looking for someone with a very calm and personable demeanor to marry you Richard is for you!

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

We liked Ron Shantz right off the bat after our first encounter with him at the Toronto Bridal Show... He helped us navigate through the Enduring Promises website and it was clear just how user-friendly the process was -- for a couple so completely overwhelmed and out of their element with the entire wedding process, this helped take loads off the stress and pressure of what was to be said during our nuptials! We decided to go with Enduring Promises for our big day and as fate would have it, we were set us up with Ron and couldn't have been more happy and impressed! From the getgo he was extremely likeable, personable, warm, and extremely patient with our questions and our very rambunctious ring boy at our rehearsal! Your wedding day is a moment you'll always remember and we're grateful that Ron was able to be part of ours.

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!

She was prompt at all functions and very practical with her recommendations! Also, she was sensitive to any cultural cues and super knowledgeable about them - probably from all her years of experience! At our ceremony she was engaging and a lot of fun, adding a lot of spirit to the day - however, never distracting. Thank you, Rinette and Enduring Promises!

We met Pam after meeting numerous officiants but she gave us the best impression. During our first meeting we learned about each other to see if we would be a good fit. My husband and I collectively decided that Pam would be the best choice. Enduring Promise's officiant fees were modest. During the process of putting together our ceremony, Pam was there to remind us when we were behind schedule and to give us suggestions to help us improve our ceremony. She was quick to respond and reassuring. Prior to the ceremony, Pam came to visit me in my bridal suite to reassure me everything is ready, and to ask if I had any concerns. She helped me verify last minute details.

The ceremony went smoothly and a lot quicker than our rehearsal.

Thanks Pam for making our wedding such a success!

We are a couple of professionals with busy lives and great expectations. We wished to set up a wedding of our dreams for the closest family and friends. Due to family illness, we had only 5 days to do so. Pam Moss was the most helpful and wonderful officiant we could have asked for. She responded promptly and worked around the clock to make our event possible and beautiful in such a short period of time. Enduring Promises, and Pam specifically, surpassed all of our expectations. They were professional, yet emphatic and kind.

We were also very impressed by the ceremony Console; its ease of use and wealth of choice. It was actually fun putting together our ceremony using the ceremony Console of the Enduring Promises. Overall, Enduring Promises Inc was simply great. They offer a perfect blend of professionalism and kindness to make your big day unique and well-organized.

The planning process was very easy the online tools made quick work of creating a plan for our day, and Jim was very quick at reviewing and providing feedback when ever we made a change. Even when we added the unpredictable nature of our 2 year old in our ceremony he was quick to provide solutions to ensure everything went over without issue.

If we were going to get married again I would gladly hire Enduring Promises again, but we highly recommend them to anyone looking to make the ceremony the easiest planning part of the wedding.

Also for anyone debating on doing the rehearsal, I highly recommend it, its worth the extra $$ and time.

Jim was fantastic and we are grateful to have him perform our wedding.

We are very happy to have chosen Jim Emerson to officiate our wedding ceremony. Right from the very first Skype meeting, he guided us at every step of the way. Ours was an inter - religion wedding, we usually don't exchange vows & rings. We had no clue about it. Jim helped us understand each part of it and even encouraged us to contribute to the vows. He gave us great suggestions to include our friends into the ceremony - by reading out verses and presenting the rings.

On the day of the wedding, he was very patient and explained us everything in detail. The entire ceremony was well organised. Jim even told us about the application process for marriage certificate. He has taken care of every detail from end to end.

Jim is a very cheerful and pleasant person to interact with. We thank Jim Emerson and Enduring Promises for making our special day a more memorable one !

We contacted Enduring Promises based on a recommendation from a personal friend who knew the owners. They sent us the profile of 2 officiants that were available on our date and from that we decided to meet Mike.

We knew that Mike was the right man for our wedding after one meeting. He was professional, honest, had a ton of experience and is such a genuinely nice person. Mike helped us to plan out the details of our ceremony, offered suggestions for neat things we could do (we chose a wine ceremony that our guest really enjoyed) and helped to make sure the timing of the ceremony was perfect. We asked that it be light and happy and he assured us that we wouldn't have to worry about a thing once we got there.

Needless to say, our ceremony was absolutely PERFECT!! As my dad and I stood outside of the doors waiting for our walk down the aisle, you could hear the whole room cheer for us - such an incredible feeling! - and once we entered it was smooth sailing from there. Mike gave us subtle queues to let us know when we needed to do something and kept our guest engaged and cheery the whole time. Everyone loved listening to Mike and raved about how well they could hear him and how smoothly everything went. I think we will be getting compliments about our ceremony for a very long time.

We couldn't be happier with the decision to have Mike there and would recommend him in a heartbeat!

I first met Enduring Promises at the wedding show at the Metro Convention Centre. They were so friendly and answered any questions I had. There was no question when we decided to use them to officiate our marriage. Jim Emerson was assigned as our officiant and we couldn't have been happier. Jim was very friendly and prompt when assisting us during the planning of our ceremony and addressed any questions or concerns we had. The online console was great and was very easy to use. It really helped us customize our wedding ceremony to reflect our vision and it provided wonderful examples and ideas for readings. We were happy and glad that we also booked a rehearsal with Jim. He walked us through the ceremony layout and provided guidance to the wedding party. It really helped relieve some of the stress knowing what to expect on the wedding day. We received wonderful compliments from our guests regarding the ceremony and how great Jim was as an officiant.

Our officiant was Rinette Emerson and she is absolutely amazing. Her exceptional professionalism, knowledge and insight was greatly appreciated. In particular, we appreciated how meticulous she was during the rehearsal dinner (which we HIGHLY recommend all couples opting for!) that really helped to facilitated everything on the day of.

I so enjoyed being a part of your Wedding Celebration.

You had most incredible wedding party, amazing parents, fantastic vendor team and a perfect day! Ellie and Leanne did a great job with the readings and I am sure Mike was able to capture every single moment on film!

I know that you will enjoy a lifetime of happiness - may you continue to laugh together every single day and may you look back on your wedding day as the day you loved each other the least!

We want to thank Enduring Promises and Jim Emerson for the amazing experience of our wedding day.
From our first meeting with Jim, we felt we were in good hands to plan, set up, and execute our wedding ceremony. Jim showed us the interactive and very helpful Enduring Promises website – we were able to personalize our ceremony in the exact way we imagined it in our heads.
We cannot say enough about how fantastic the website is, for anyone to set up a very personal ceremony, in any fashion of religious or secular, somber or light hearted, with suggestions of speeches, poems, ceremonial events and order of the whole ceremony.
Every time we updated our ceremony on the site, Jim Emerson replied to it within that day with helpful advice, encouragement and always an open mind to how we wanted the ceremony to take shape.
We did not have a chance to have a practice run-through prior to the wedding day. However, Jim thought of every detail, as an hour before the ceremony, he gathered the wedding party and quickly, efficiently gave us the instructions on the best way to proceed during the ceremony – paying attention to the needs of photographers, videographers, and of course our guests and ourselves.
And finally, the ceremony itself was perfect. Jim Emerson was professional and kind, interactive with our guests, fun and attentive to detail.
Thank you, Jim; thank you to Enduring Promises and we recommend to any young couple out there to consider their services – you will have a wedding to remember.

We had an AMAZING experience with Enduring Promises. Jim Emerson was our officiant, and we couldn't have asked for anyone better. He came to our first meeting full of helpful ideas and ways to make our ceremony unique to us. He always kept us smiling and seemed to have fun while he was working which helped us stay calm and have fun on our day. The ceremony console was extremely easy to work with and made the process much simpler than I thought it was going to be. It has tons of examples to choose from that you can keep as they are or change to make it sound more like you.
From day one, up to the day we got married Jim was extremely helpful and fun to talk with. He gave us advice when we sent him our ceremony to look over and always made us feel comfortable.
Thanks so much Jim for all that you did, keep up the great work!

Hi Sarah and Mike

Thank you for your kind words.

I knew when we first met and you showed me your engagement photos that your wedding was going to be a real celebration of your love and commitment and not just another wedding ceremony.

You created a very personal, unique and memorable ceremony, one that I am sure your guests will remember fondly - especially the reading by your aunt Lisa.

We had Jim Emerson as our officiant from Enduring Promises. He was phenomenal in all aspects. He was very helpful in our initial meeting with him and had many suggestions for how to personalize our ceremony. The online site to build your ceremony was easy to use and allowed us to easily personalize our ceremony. Jim gave us lots of feedback and advice. He even called my husband a few days before our wedding to give him some help with his vows! That really showed us how much Jim truly cared about us and our wedding. Jim's attention to detail during the rehearsal ceremony was amazing, I cannot stress enough how important it is to book him for the rehearsal as well. He is meticulous during the rehearsal and he provides so many tips for how to make the ceremony run smoothly. On the day of, he ran through the ceremony with our groomsmen again since 2 of them were absent for the rehearsal. Despite the rain, wind, and cold, Jim made sure our ceremony was perfect. All of our guests commented on how much they loved our ceremony!

The ceremony you created was precisely Enduring Promises`byline - Imaging. Create. Celebrate. And that`s exactly what you did. Your ceremony was a reflection of you personalities and values. I received several comments from your guests about the ceremony you two created.

Ossie and Bella were the best behaved four legged ring bearers that I have ever worked with - even better than many two legged ones!

He was extremely professional and offered suggestions and pointers to help personalize our ceremony. The ceremony console is so easy to use and helpful. Jim responded to our questions and provided comments to our "submitted ceremony" quickly.

We live far away from Toronto where we were getting married and we didn't organize a rehearsal. But Jim did a pre-wedding talk with the bridal parties and family to make sure we all knew what to do. He organized the processional and gave pointers to our photographers and musicians on the day of the ceremony. Our family commented on how calm and organized Jim was. We would definitely recommend him to other couples getting married!

I cannot thank Mike enough for the wonderful and beautiful ceremony he provided for our wedding day. My fiance was not thrilled with the idea of ceremony outside of the church however once we had a phone conversation with Mike from Enduring Promises, my fiance and I were so excited for the big day to arrive. After our call we set up 2 meetings to review and then finalize our ceremony. There were lots of ideas and options to look through to provide us with our own unique ceremony but with a hint of tradition.

On the day of the wedding, Mike arrived well in advance and had enough time for a quick pep talk to calm our nerves. I never could have imagined how flawless the ceremony went...Mike kept the audience engaged, made us feel comfortable and relaxed and my only regret was not having a videographer to capture our ceremony!

After the ceremony, I spoke with many of my guests who said that it was one of the most romantic ceremonies they had ever seen and that the wine box love letter portion (suggestion from Mike) was very memorable!!

I would recommend Mike Van Slingerland and Enduring Promises to anyone getting married!

Due to some surprising and exciting news, Alex and I had to bump our wedding from August to April. I basically had to plan a wedding in 6 weeks. I contacted 2 officiant companies, and Enduring Promises was the first to respond – and recommended Jim Emerson according to our wedding ceremony needs.

Jim Emerson is an amazing officiant – from our first meeting, Alex and I were sure he would be great as our officiant. He is sincere, and really focused on ensuring that your ceremony is tailored to you as a couple while showcasing that your ceremony is a special, celebratory moment.

Jim was there to guide and help us put together a meaningful ceremony for our special day. We had no experience/ knowledge about wedding ceremonies (but we knew we wanted to incorporate Filipino wedding tradition into our ceremony), and we are so thankful that Jim was with us every step of the way. We felt very comfortable working with him, and opened up to him as he was very open with us. It was so wonderful working with Jim. What a delight!

The Enduring Promises ceremony Console is very useful. Alex and I were able to put together our ceremony, Jim was able to look at it, make suggestions and comments and it enabled us to personalize our ceremony and make it meaningful to us. It was very easy to use, and I would always recommend Enduring Promises just for the ceremony Console.
Jim gave us a tip that I will never forget and always tell my friends who are getting married: “Focus on each other, your love, and keep eye contact with each other during the ceremony” – it’s amazing, it makes you more comfortable and at ease when you’re focused, holding hands and looking into your partner’s eyes.

Alex and I would just like to send a heartfelt thank you to Jim Emerson and Enduring Promises for making our wedding day special. Also sending out a great thank you to Renee who stepped in for Jim for our last minute rehearsal

Hi Mary and Alex

Wow! Thank you for your kind words and support - it is greatly appreciated.

There were several highlights of your ceremony which I felt were reflective of you as a couple and honouring of your heritage. I thoroughly enjoyed, as did your guests, your reading, "We go together". I thought it was so appropriate for you. I also liked the Cord and Veil ceremonial element which you incorporated into your ceremony.

So I quote the last line of your reading,
"We go together, that’s what We Do
We go together because: You Love Me and I Love You".
May this verse be more than just words, but a statement of your love and commitment to one another for as long as you both shall live. ~ Jim

We were able to choose from a good selection of scripts and further customize parts of it as we liked. He was also flexible in terms of how religious our ceremony would be.

During the ceremony, Mike spoke loudly, clearly and with confidence. You could tell he's officiated many ceremonies in the past. He eased the tension in the room with a couple of light, well-timed jokes and made us feel very comfortable throughout the ceremony.

We really enjoyed working with Mike and are confident that you won't regret choosing him as your officiant.

We contacted Enduring Promises and Jim in particular to be our officiant on our special day based on the great reviews we found through wedding wire. When we met Jim he was very relaxed and easily engaged us in a discussion to find out what we wanted out of our ceremony. He encouraged us to customize the ceremony, and was very helpful in providing prompt feedback.

Jim was incredibly organized on the day of the wedding and very diligent in ensuring that everyone was aware of their roles (i.e father of the bride, wedding party, live musicians, photographer)- as the bride and groom, this took alot of pressure off us and allowed us to enjoy the most meaningful part of the day

The online console was easy to use and very logical and intuitive. The examples for each section of the ceremony were also very helpful in making decisions about the flow and tone of the ceremony.

All the Enduring Promises staff that we dealt with (which was only one other person) were also very responsive to queries and seemed happy to help with any questions we had.

I would recommend the company, and Jim as an officiant in particular, to anyone who is looking for this service - even our guests were very impressed with Jim and thought he was a longtime family friend bc he was so approachable and so genuine throughout the events leading up the ceremony and the ceremony itself.

Thanks again Jim for making our day so memorable

We had Rinette from Enduring Promises officiate our wedding. From the first time we contacted Rinette at Enduring Promises, right up to the service and follow-up, she was professional, accommodating and so wonderful to work with!
We had a destination wedding and simply required someone who would be able to conduct a ceremony here in Ontario in order to help us expedite the legal component of our marriage. Rinette worked with us to create a beautiful wedding ceremony. She offered us lots of options. We had the flexibility to make our ceremony as simple as we wanted to, or have a more involved, longer ceremony. We were able to take some elements of our destination wedding and work it into a short and simple, but touching wedding service.
Rinette has a lovely presence, is a wonderful speaker, and connects with all those present at your ceremony. We would highly recommend Rinette and wish we could have flown her down to our destination wedding earlier in the year!

Thank you Rinette for your wonderful energy!

Thank you Irene and Murray for your kind words.
What an honor to be part of your celebration. I loved that you were able to complete the sand ceremony that you began at your destination wedding at this second celebration and made your marriage complete in every sense.
May you continue to grow and flourish in all you do!

Jim was a pleasure to work with and made our wedding all the more enjoyable. From day 1, he was supportive in the process and exceeded our expectations up until the I Dos. He provided us with recommendations on how to personalize our ceremony to make our wedding as unique as possible. Our guests commented on how personal our ceremony was, and with that, we always credit Jim on how the ceremony suited us completely.

The online ceremony builder was perfect for us in the planning process, especially with our hectic schedules (option to save and work on the ceremony later).

The overall experience with Enduring Promises was the easiest part of our wedding planning/day and I would highly recommend them for anyone that wants a customized and unique wedding that will be a crowd pleaser.

Thank you Jim for a beautiful day,
Andrea & Adam

Enduring Promises is an amazing company. The ceremony is 100% customizable on their website. We found it very easy to use and whenever we had a question we were given a prompt response. My husband and I felt our wedding ceremony was in good hands and had absolutely no worries for the big day. On the wedding day, it went perfectly and it was everything we could have ever wanted. We actually had a lot of guests commenting on how nice the ceremony was and how the officiant did a great job! Thank you so much!

Mike Van Slingerland was all that we could have asked for to officiate our wedding. Although Mike had many different package types, we felt that we were good with only a single meeting before the wedding. That didn't mean that Mike forgot about us until our wedding day, as he was super helpful leading up to the day. There was also no pressure into a religious ceremony as my husband wouldn't have been too happy with that. Instead, Mike gave us 5 base ceremonies to choose from, and then we could customize the one we selected as much as we want. If we emailed him a question, we heard back within half an hour (though I don't think it ever took even that long). He was a great presence at the ceremony, and we have some great pictures of him laughing along like he was part of the family. We only met Mike one time before our wedding day, but he officiated the ceremony as if he had known the family for years. We definitely recommend Mike.

Hi Brock and Lauren

Thank you for your very kind words and compliments.

Officiating weddings is so enjoyable when I have the opportunity to work with such great people as yourselves.

You and Lauren chose an excellent venue in the Glenerin Inn. The Inn holds a special place in my heart as that is where we spent our wedding night. I trust the remainder of your day was as special as your ceremony.

I wish you many decades of wedding bliss. ~ Mike

Mike at Enduring Promises was more than we could ever ask for. We aren't religious and wanted the ceremony to reflect that. Mike was open to all ideas and had us choose from five different 'scripts' of ceremonies. But we weren't stuck to those ceremonies, we could pick this from number 1, that from number 4, and the other from number 2, and add in/take away whatever we wanted. We picked the lowest package of his services, and sometimes that means the lowest service, but I never felt like we were pushed aside. Emails were returned within 20 minutes every time. Even though we only met Mike once before the day of the wedding, the ceremony felt like it was being run by an old friend. Great guy. Great service!

Words cannot express how grateful we are to Rinette. She is not only a professional when it comes to her job, but is also a true pleasure to work with from start to finish. She is kind, understanding, witty, and most importantly, a genuine person. Rinette completely customized the ceremony experience to what we wanted, and was able to deliver the feel of the ceremony, spot-on. In short, she surpassed our expectations in every way. We got married outside in the middle of winter - our noses were running, fingers frozen - but none of this stopped Rinette! Enduring Promises, which is how we were able to secure Rinette as our officiant, was also great to work with. They were prompt, accommodating, and very helpful in their guidance/suggestions. We would absolutely recommend Enduring Promises, and ESPECIALLY Rinette, as an officiant for any wedding! We always smile when we think back to you officiating our special moment - Thank You!!

Rinette was referred to us by a friend who had used her services previously and had glowing reviews. We met with Rinette at a mutually convenient location and was so easy to talk to. She was very professional, knew what she was doing and really made the whole experience very easy for us. In our initial meeting she got to know our personalities, interests, and the feel of our wedding, and provided ideas that were in line with what we were looking for.
The online console was very easy to use and was great with all the 'examples' it had - we used most of these when creating our ceremony.
Leading up to the wedding Rinette checked in with us a few times and on the day of the wedding - thank God she was there! - we would've felt lost without her. She told us what to do, where to go, where to put our hands - all things we didn't think of until she told us.. The pace of the ceremony was great and her voice was so professional and clear.
I'm very happy we went with Enduring Promises and would gladly recommend them to others.

Jim Emerson was incredible at helping us create the perfect ceremony! He covered every detail. We originally thought we would have a 5 minute ceremony but instead ended up with an unforgettable 25 min ceremony that was full of laughter, crying, and personal touches (even a song)!!

When we initially contacted Enduring Promises, we had no idea how to pick an officiant from the many listed. We gave some guidelines as to what we were looking for in an officiant and they suggested Jim.
Throughout the process, Jim had a ton of ideas, some of which we loved, some of which we passed on but ultimately they all helped us create a ceremony that was loving and unique to us.

He is smiling brightly in all of our photos as well and made eye contact with both of us throughout the ceremony and especially when we took our vows! The mother of the groom also commented about how wonderful he was to listen to and that he was extremely personable with everyone in attendance.

He made our day memorable and put everyone at ease! Would highly recommend booking Richard and using Enduring Promises for your wedding needs!

It was a pleasure to participate in your wedding day celebrations and to meet your parents, bridal party and your guests. Christopher and Melanie did a great job delivering their respective readings and I could see your Mothers were totally thrilled when you presented the lilies to them.

It was a privilege for me to pronounce a blessing over your marriage. I realized during the recessional, that I should have asked for my own bottle of bubbles so I could have been the first one of many to blow bubbles over you.

Yours was a very personal ceremony and one that all of your guests will have fond memories of. I wish you much joy and prosperity as you begin life together in marriage. ~ Richard

My husband and I asked Jim Emerson from Enduring Promises to be our Officiant. Jim came highly recommended after my best friend used him 3 years ago.

Jim was everything my girlfriend told me he'd be and more. He was very excited about being part of our day. He was VERY helpful planning our ceremony and was always quick to get back to us. For example, I emailed Jim without knowing he was visiting family out of town and that he wouldn't return home until after the weekend...Jim still called me - he excused himself one evening after dinner and made a quick call from another room, just to let me know he got my message, was away but would call me back when he returned. My question wasn't urgent, my wedding was well over a month away - Jim's phone call was above and beyond what I would have expected - his attentiveness and passion for weddings/marriage is unreal.

On the day of the wedding - Jim had our paperwork neatly packaged and had printed off other useful things that would assist us after the wedding - for example how and when to apply for your marriage certificate, applications for name change, etc.

Jim had wonderful advice on our wedding day - but I won't share that with you, that's his job :)
We highly recommend him! ** Thanks again Jim! **

We had the pleasure of having Jim Emerson as our wedding officiant on our special day. From day one, Jim has been prompt, organized, attentive to detail and kind. He was always helping us find a more creative way to make our wedding ceremony different from others, yet personal to us. Even when Jim could not make it to our rehearsal, his wife Rinette stepped in and blew us away. They make the perfect team! The two of them work very well together. Throughout the process of creating the ceremony, Jim was always leaving us comments and questions on their online program making sure our ceremony was perfect and went off without a hitch! I would recommend the two of them and enduring promises to anyone!! Thank you!

Thank you Ruth and Adam for you encouraging words of support - you've made our day!

Both Chris and Sari wrote incredible readings which were so personal and engaging, not to mention very funny - especially Chris' "Brownie Sundae".

Both Rinette and I wish you much happiness and prosperity throughout your married life. ~ Jim

We used Rinette Emerson of Enduring Promises on our special day, and were not disappointed.

We chose Rinette because of the positive reviews she received, her experience and credentials, her warm personality, and the added value Enduring Promises provides. While other officiants may have been cheaper, we did not want to trust our special day with someone who only cared about being paid (...and trust me, we looked at many officiants who felt this way).

Her professionalism and experience really paid off on our wedding day because the day did not go as planned with weather, traffic, scheduling. But despite our disappointments, Rinette did a great job communicating with the wedding party and guests, while ensuring everyone had a smile at the end of the day. She almost felt like a brides maid to my wife because she was so helpful and attentive.

As for Enduring Promises, they are a professional business that knows what they are doing. In communicating with Jim Emerson, he was compassionate and helpful with any questions we had (post wedding).

It is too bad we only plan on getting married once, because my wife and I would not hesitate using Rinette and Enduring Promises again.

We did not know what to expect on our wedding day. Naturally we were both very stressed on the day of our wedding I had many question marks on my mind. Having picked Enduring Promises solely through Google, no idea who Rinette Emerson (our wedding officiant) was, it really was a little terrifying. As we headed in to the North York Wedding Chambers, Rinette was right there waiting for us. As soon as we met Rinette, all the stress melted away. Rinette, we can not thank you enough for making our day even more special with your kindess, compassion and utmost professionalism. It were as if somebody form our own family was officiating our wedding! God bless you and your family!

We cannot say enough wonderful things about Jim Emerson and Enduring Promises. From our very first meeting we knew he was the officient we'd been looking for. He took the time to go over and explain all the details that made our day unforgettable. His experience and expertise was evident and he gave my husband and I the confidence to make our day our very own by encouraging us to write our own vows and even giving us suggestions on who to hire for live music. We cannot thank Jim enough and all of our guests kept coming back to us saying how amazing our ceremony was.

We had Belma Vardy from Enduring Promises as our officiant, and she was brilliant! We found her very knowledgeable, professional, and attentive to our needs. She is also very organized, such as reminding us to complete the script 10 days prior to the wedding, emailing us to confirm some details, and all the little sticky notes on the license directing the witnesses where to sign! My relatives praised her service highly as an officiant as they found her very professional and speaks very clearly. Belma is also very affectionate and encouraging during the ceremony. She kept telling us we were doing great! It made us feel very reassured and appreciative. The ceremony was completed very well and on time despite the fact that she had to rush to another wedding right after ours. THANK YOU SO MUCH AGAIN Belma, in making our big day so wonderful and successful! Irene & Jeff :)

Our wedding was beautiful, fun and so special. We couldn't have asked for a better officiant than Jim!
He helped keep us all at ease, he was professional but personal. He told us where to go, what to do and how to get the best pictures. I haven't been to many weddings and I didn't really know how the whole thing went down. Jim was so great to tell us what needed to happen and when. How to hold my bouquet was by far the best tip he gave me.
It was a complete coincidence that Jim had married our friends earlier in the year, and I know they were so happy with their wedding too.

We met with Jim Emerson and knew right away that his sense of humor, professionalism and friendliness would add to our ceremony perfectly. Jim gave us some great advice and tips to help make our ceremony more personal.

The online console to help you create your ceremony was helpful and easy to use. They gave great options for wording and let you create your own too.

The rehearsal was conducted by his lovely wife Rinette, who was equally professional and well versed. She walked us through the entire ceremony and made sure our large wedding party of 7 bridesmaids and 7 groomsmen knew exactly what to do.

The day of the wedding Jim was excellent. He kept us on time and stress free. Everyone loved how he set the tone for a perfect evening!

Would highly recommend Enduring Promises and their team!

You created a very personal ceremony that was truly a reflection of your personalities, interests and dreams. And don't forget Chantel that you promised to "make football a regular part of each Sunday."

As an officiant, Belma was fantastic. We had her come to our rehearsal party which, in retrospect, was probably the wisest decision we could have made, as she brought everyone together onto the same page, and made us all (10 people in the wedding party, plus parents, siblings, and nephews) feel completely comfortable with what we had to do throughout the ceremony.

By having her there, throughout everything, we both felt that we could relax and just enjoy ourselves and take part in the ceremony without having to worry about who was doing what; we knew that Belma would make sure everyone would be doing their part and be in the right place, and at the right time.

Belma was wonderful during the ceremony. What with our nerves and excitement, we were both grateful that she was there to tell us to breathe, let us know what was coming next, and guide us through the entire process. We even had feedback from guests who told us that our officiant had a great personality, was really very warm, and made the ceremony smooth and interesting.

So in that regard, she not only met, but completely exceeded our expectations.

The online ceremony console made it very easy for us to be able to craft our own ceremony, which is something that we valued very much, as we wanted to make sure that the ceremony reflected our personalities. It enabled us to easily edit what we wanted, and save what we had completed, then go back to it at a later date to finish things up. And again, Belma’s feedback while we went through the creation process was invaluable, as she helped point out things that we had missed.

Enduring Promises was very easy to work with. We didn’t have a whole lot of interaction with the company itself, but when we did their responses were prompt, and concise, just what we were looking for. We definitely recommend their services to anyone looking for an officiant.

We stumbled upon Enduring Promises while searching for a wedding officiant. We sent off an e-mail and received a response within a few hours advising that they could pair us up with a wedding officiant.

We settled on Jim Giles. Jim was extremely professional during the initial meet and greet. He gave the impression that he was genuinely interested in making our ceremony a memorable one. The way Enduring Promises works is that there is a template that you complete online which will give you a clear picture of the structure of your ceremony. You can also customize the event to suit your own needs.

On the day of, we met with Jim prior to the actual ceremony and he provided a walk through of everything. During the ceremony, Jim was great! He kept the crowd engaged and he provided us with little pointers here and there that were extremely helpful.

We would recommend Jim and Enduring Promises to anyone looking for an officiant.

Enduring Promises was recommended to me by a friend who also used their services. My fiancee and I recieved an almost immediate response to our initial inquiry through the website and were given three available officiant profiles to view.
When we met with Rinette she was there early with her laptop ready to go. My fiancee and I initially told ourselves we would not make any final decisions at the first meeting but Rinette won us over immediately and we placed a deposit that night.
Rinette was excited for us, very thorough and broke the ceremony down for us so it was less overwhelming.
The website was easy to use and helped us create the exact ceremony we dreamed in a timely manner.
We received innumerous compliments on Rinette's personality and profesionalism she brought to the wedding.
After the ceremony she found us in the bridal suite to give us a few words of advice and congrats and then even helped us herd our guests upstairs so we could sneak out for photos.
I would definitely recommend Rinette and Enduring Promises.

We loved Richard Bristow as our officiant. He was very laid back and made the process a lot less stressful. At the same time he understood the importance of the day for us and made sure everything was worked out. He had a lot of insight into how things at the ceremony should go so they would run smoother and all his advice paid off in the end. My family and friends even commented on what a great job he did. My father-in-law was impressed by how professional he was, and how he took the time to explain what was going to happen so they were in the know just before the ceremony. I personally loved his message of congrats the morning of the wedding.

In the end, everyone enjoyed the ceremony and it was so easy to put together with the Enduring Promises website, we really used their online resources and Richards feedback was always prompt. The only thing I would recommend is an easier way to track the changes made to the ceremony, otherwise absolutely no complaints.

We loved Richard Bristow as our officiant. He was very laid back and made the process a lot less stressful. At the same time he understood the importance of the day for us and made sure everything was worked out. He had a lot of insight into how things at the ceremony should go so they would run smoother and all his advice paid off in the end. My family and friends even commented on what a great job he did. My father-in-law was impressed by how professional he was, and how he took the time to explain what was going to happen so they were in the know just before the ceremony. I personally loved his message of congrats the morning of the wedding.

In the end, everyone enjoyed the ceremony and it was so easy to put together with the Enduring Promises website, we really used their online resources and Richards feedback was always prompt. The only thing I would recommend is an easier way to track the changes made to the ceremony, otherwise absolutely no complaints.

Hi Miranda and Jason

Thank you both for your very kind words. It was a pleasure to be a part of your wedding day and I’m so pleased that all your guests enjoyed the ceremony you created.

I was thankful that the family candles stayed alight, so you were easily able to light the family candle with no trouble.

Your wedding ceremony was extremely intimate and time of celebration that you and your guest will fondly remember.

I wish you well and much happiness in all the days ahead. ~ Richard

Jim Emerson was our officiant - He exceeded all expectations that we had, on our first meeting he helped us organize our thinking, plan accordingly and have realistic expectations. He was always very prompt on responding to our inquiries and decreased much stress. During our rehearsal we had an excited group - he helped focus everyone in a nice manner and led a very efficient event. On the Big Day Jim was noted to have a huge smile the entire time, lead a beautiful ceremony and orchestrated it with precision and tact. People are still contacting us to commend us on a great ceremony. Something that was both traditional and with our own touch. It was more than perfect.

The Ceremony console, was very easy to use. My wife and are both very busy people and it was very nice to be able to sit at it and fill it out at any time and build the ceremony literally word for word. The suggestions offered on it are extensive but gave us the opportunity to fill in our own ideas. It made the planning much easier than we anticipated.

The company was very professional to work with as a whole, their fees reasonable and service was amazing. They were prompt and direct. We are extremely happy with the service and would recommend it to anyone who likes attention to detail, creativity, efficiency and dealing with very nice people.

Thanks Jim - We'll never forget the help you gave us :)

We were so pleased to have Richard Bristow from Enduring Promises officiate our wedding! First of all, Richard surpassed all expectations that we had and he was very thorough when answering any questions that we had. He made the whole experience of preparing for our ceremony very easy and made us feel really at ease that things would go exactly as planned, which it did! Richard spoke with poise and clarity. We even received a lot of great comments from our guests saying that they loved the officiant!

Enduring Promises has a very handy ceremony console that helps you structure your ceremony with ease. They have a lot of great examples for each part of the ceremony which you can use, or customize to your liking as well.

Enduring Promises provided excellent customer service and they even let us choose from the officiants they had available on our wedding day. This was very helpful as other companies just simply assigned one to us.

I would recommend Enduring Promises to anyone looking for an officiant. Their rates are competitive and you will be surprised with the value that you get from them!

After meeting with a couple officiants prior to meeting Mike we had a good idea of what we wanted. Working with Mike was so easy and exactly what we were looking for. Which was a lighthearted but classic ceremony with no religious elements.
We found Mike to be extremely knowledgeable and helpful. His experience with other ceremonies helped us design exactly what we wanted.
The website lets you create your own ceremony and the suggestions were great. We included many things we weren't even aware of before hand and it turned out great.

Highly recommended.

We are 100% thrilled with our officiant Rinette! She was fantastic and really made our ceremony special. She was so flexible during the planning stages and really helped us create a ceremony that was perfect for us. The website made it so easy to design our own readings and vows and to communicate and share our ceremony with Rinette. They were so quick to get back to us with the answers to our questions and with some suggestions. Overall they are really flexible and easy to work with.

We received soooo many compliments on our ceremony and how unique and tailored it was to our backgrounds and family. I truly believe it was due to Rinette's encouragement and guidance to create a ceremony that had unique and special elements in it to incorporate the kids and our Scottish heritage. She was fantastic at our rehearsal, making sure everyone was relaxed and knew what they were doing.

We really loved working with her and I would recommend her to everyone. Thank you , Enduring promises for making our day perfect!

Enduring Promises really came through for us! We contacted them 5 days before our wedding, since the officiant we had booked needed to have immediate open heart surgery. They worked within an hour of our voicemail to send profiles of officiants we would be interested. We were amazed that we would still have the option at such a late stage in our planning! We chose Rinette and she was an AMAZING! We met her at the rehearsal and she was extremely professional. She took hold of the meeting, gave our wedding party amazing tips and with her big smile reassured us that everything was going to work out perfectly (and it did!). She gave us some great options to enhance the ceremony we had sketched out with our previous officiant and she just reduced the stress to a minimum to make our day more enjoyable for us and our guests. From the perspective of her personality, she was cheery, friendly, and just had warm loving vibe. Although we had someone else in mind, we could not have been happier with Rinette's service! she didn't miss a beat in terms of what our guests would be expecting (holding the kiss for 8 seconds so everyone can get the shot!) and other tips that our photographer appreciated. She was a wealth of knowledge that we were grateful to draw from!

I would absolutely recommend them to anyone who is looking for prompt, professional, reliable and friendly service. I cannot say more great things about the value that we got from Rinette except that you will not be disappointed if you work with her!

Officiating a wedding is all the more enjoyable when working with awesome couples like yourselves.

Your ceremony at Liberty Grand was by far one of the highlights of my year. Your creative approach to the planning of your wedding ceremony made your day it such an enjoyable experience.

Your guests seemed to really enjoy your personalized ceremony and I trust that the rest of your day was just as memorable.

My husband and I knew right from the moment we met with Ron that the ceremony was going to go smoothly. He patiently explained the whole process with Enduring Promises' easy to use online ceremony planning tool. While we entered the meeting a little stressed, we left totally relaxed knowing we were in good hands.

Ron was so flexible when our wedding date got changed unexpectedly, as well as when our rehearsal got changed. He was so understanding.

The online planning tool made our lives so much easier. We could choose what we wanted Ron to say for each part of the ceremony or even write it ourselves. When I was unsure of anything, Ron was quick to respond. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this company to any future brides and grooms!

Rinette was our officiant for the ceremony Aug 3. She was absolutely AMAZING. 2 days prior, we had our rehearsal and she was beyond fantastic. She was accomodating, patient, friendly, assertive when she needed to be (to get everyone in order) and extremely organized. She put everyone at ease immediatley. She paid attention to all the little details so we wouldn't have to. She gave us tips that we wouldn't have even thought about. On the actual day, she even moved out of the way in certain parts of the ceremony so our photographer could get shots just of us. We had people come up to us after the ceremony and tell us how amazing she was!
We also had people compliment us on how personalized and intimate the ceremony was - the ceremony console (online) was sooo easy to use. We were able to make the whole ceremony from beginning to end "us".
All in all, Enduring Promises was perfect in every way. Quick to respond, accomodating, patient, helpful, friendly, organized - made the experience alot less stressful for us. I wouldn't have changed a thing and would recommend them to everyone.

On the actual day, she even moved out of the way in certain parts of the ceremony so our photographer could get shots just of us. We had people come up to us after the ceremony and tell us how amazing she was!
We also had people compliment us on how personalized and intimate the ceremony was - the ceremony console (online) was sooo easy to use. We were able to make the whole ceremony from beginning to end "us".
All in all, Enduring Promises was perfect in every way. Quick to respond, accomodating, patient, helpful, friendly, organized - made the experience alot less stressful for us. I wouldn't have changed a thing and would recommend them to everyone. Read less

Hi Candace and Padraic

I so thoroughly enjoyed the time we spent together creating an amazing ceremony, meeting with your fantastic wedding party at your rehearsal and celebrating with your family and friends on your Special Day.

Without a doubt you had the cutest Ring Bearer and certainly the fastest!

Again I wish you both joy, rich blessings and much love as you begin your married life. ~ Rinette

Jim Emerson was amazing. From our initial meeting, he put us completely at ease and he had so many helpful suggestions. The rehearsal was absolutely worth every penny. Everyone knew exactly what we had to do and it took the stress away from the event. Jim's warm approachable nature came through during the ceremony and the ceremony was so personal - exactly what we wanted! We were so happy Jim was our officiant! The administration team at Enduring Promises is also top notch. Rinette was always quick to answer emails and they were able to answer all our questions. We would highly recommend Jim and Enduring Promises to anyone in need of an officiant.

My husband and I have nothing but good things to say about the Enduring Promises. Rob was the officiant that we chose so we only dealt with him. During our initial meeting he was extremely kind and professional. After talking with him for only a few moments we both knew that we would be thrilled ho have him officiate our wedding. He is a very caring, charismatic person and he did a fantastic job during the ceremony. We had multiple people comment on how good of a job Rob had done. We would not hesitate in recommending both him and the company.

During our meeting he took the time to get to know us as a couple and any other questions we had following that were all answered promptly. The day of the wedding itself, he took charge and was very good at giving instructions. We had a great time with him and are very very happy with the service we have received from Jim and Enduring Promises.

Hi Kaylay and Alvin

We did have a great day of celebration, didn't we?

You created such a unique ceremony by including your grandmother, the Butterfly Release and the group photo of all your guests on the stairs at Graydon Hall.

I received many comments from your guests about your ceremony and how personal it was. Your unique ceremony was truly a gift to your guests that they will remember for a long time.

I wish you continued blessing and much love as you follow your dreams. ~ Jim

We hired Richard Bristow to officiate our wedding, and he did an incredible job! He was extremely helpful in guiding us through the process of creating the ceremony that we wanted. He was always quick to respond to emails and to offer feedback and suggestions.

The ceremony tools on the Enduring Promises website were extremely helpful as well. The site offers an amazing range and variety of wording for each part of the ceremony.

I would definitely recommend Enduring Promises and Richard to any couple looking for an officiant. We couldn't have been happier with the way our ceremony turned out!

Yours was a wedding ceremony to be remembered by all and I thoroughly enjoyed participating in your celebration. ~ Richard

My husband and I got married in a small ceremony in Oakville in July. Since it was only immediate family present, we wanted to make sure our wedding felt intimate and inclusive. Our officiant, Jim, was an absolute delight to work with. From our first phone call with him where he helped us get a feel for the type of ceremony we wanted to craft, to calming our nerves on the day of our wedding, Jim truly was everything we could have hoped for in an officiant. Prior to the wedding, he was responsive to our calls/emails. On the day of, he made sure to arrive early so he had time to sit and chat with us. During the ceremony, he helped my mother (who was serving double duty as our photographer) find the perfect photo opportunities. Our families also found Jim's manner and tone very warm and pleasant. They truly felt our ceremony reflected my husband and me as a couple and for that I must give a lot of credit to Jim. I would highly recommend working with Enduring Promises for your wedding- they are true professionals in every sense.

We had a simple and private ceremony. Our two witnesses and two children were present, along with the officiant. I wanted to get married in the most hassle-free way with the least prep time.

I found Rinette based some discussion on a BBS of brides-to-be. I contacted Enduring Promises by email and Rinette replied within two days. It's July and she was quite booked up but was able to find me a slot in the coming Saturday. She is very professional, courteous and full of ideas. She took the time to ask questions and make suggestions. Although I am not at all picky she still put in efforts to make this process both meaningful and joyful.

We found a greenbelt park that looks like a heart-shape from Google satellite map view. We brought a little foldable table set on a slope beside a big tree. Rinette suggested the sand ceremony which we both really liked. The ceremony was short and sweet, just the way I wanted. After all, this is just the start.

I compared the cost with a few other officiants and this is the best price for the ones I've checked.

In a nut shell I am very satisfied with the service and would highly recommend to other brides.

We were so pleased with Rinette from Enduring Promises. We met Rinette and spent about an hour with her in a little coffee shop, and from there had no doubts that she was the right person to use to officiate our ceremony. She walked us through the whole process - giving us tips and options (and also saving me PILES of time researching what I needed to do).

Rinette is so genuine, so professional and so willing to help.
We were really pleased with all the vendors we used for our wedding - but the element that our guests commented about over and over again was our officiant - and how wonderful she was. Thank you Rinette!

Bottom line: if you're unsure - book a consultation. Your concerns will be put to rest! Booking with Enduring Promises was one of the smartest decisions I made in my wedding planning.

Mike Van Slingerland was our officiant and married us last year in July 2013. Although we are late writing this review, we still remember every detail of the wedding because Mike made our ceremony a very memorable one. We knew right away from the first time we met him that he was the perfect person to marry us. He was very professional and most importantly, funny. I'm pretty sure after the ceremony I (the bride) got a few compliments on my dress but most of the compliments were about Mike. Everyone loved him, thought he was so wonderful and will never forget him. Mike not only made us comfortable throughout the whole process but also made our wedding party and guests enjoy every minute of the ceremony. He was great at guiding us through all the steps required from pre to post wedding. There is a lot of planning and coordinating involved in a wedding, I'm sure every bride will agree. It is very difficult to put a lot of trust and money for services from multiple vendors and seeing it all unfold for the first time on your wedding day. For this reason, we give Enduring Promises & Mike a 5/5 because I never had to question or worry about their service. Without a doubt, we both know that Mike is the BEST OFFICIANT.

Our officiant, Jim, did a phenomenal job for our ceremony! His experience was evident in the way that he kept everyone in-tune, involved, and smiling! Not only that, but he really took charge during the rehearsal and made any fears that something might go wrong the day-of melt away! I knew that whatever problems might come up, he had it covered. He even went out of his way to move his schedule around for us when we had to change the time of our rehearsal!

I could not imagine creating a ceremony any other way but with the on-line ceremony console that Enduring Promises offers. It was such a simple process that gave us tons of cool ideas and really let us make the ceremony our own. Jim's tips and involvement in helping create the ceremony was invaluable. He always answered our e-mails promptly and answered every question we had.

Jim went to great lengths to make sure everything was perfect and ran smoothly. It was obvious that he truly had our best interests in mind in everything that he did, and in every tip that he gave us leading up to the big day. I would definitely recommend!

We had Mike as our officiant and he was amazing! He was friendly and gave us a great feeling from our very first meeting with him, and he was very helpful throughout the planning process. We were able to create a very personalized ceremony (e.g., wrote our own vows, chose the readings we wished to include), and found the online planner to be a great resource. On the day of the wedding, Mike was so warm and engaging, and he made everyone there feel welcome and a part of the ceremony. He delivered a ceremony that was meaningful, romantic and heartfelt, but also light-hearted and funny at times. We were so happy with the way it all turned out. He also made sure to check in with me, my husband, and various wedding party members before the ceremony, which I thought was really nice. Our friends and family adored both Mike and our overall ceremony, and are still talking about how great it was. Thank you Mike and Enduring Promises for helping to make our wedding day so special for us!

Jim Emerson from Enduring Promises was an incredible officiant. From our first meeting with him, we felt very comfortable and in great care for our big day. Jim guided us through the process of completing the ceremony verbiage and provided great feedback. Two days prior to our wedding, we hosted a rehearsal with Jim, where he walked us through all the details and preparations required for our ceremony. This was instrumental in aleviating our nerves and prepared us perfectly for our ceremony. We HIGHLY recommend this. On the day of our wedding, we felt prepared and calm and as a result, we had an absolute blast. So many of our guests commented on what a captivating and personal officiant Jim was and a few of our engaged friends even asked for his contact details.

My husband and I were married on July 6th by Sam Cooper. He made the whole process so easy for us by making sure we knew exactly what we needed and how everything would be handled. We are so pleased with how everything went. When we were looking into writing our own ceremony Sam, Jim and Rinette were so helpful to let us know how we were able to customize it to suite us. We have had nothing but positive feedback on our wedding. Thank you so much for making our day so memorable.

Rinette was both professional and personable. She always responded to my inquires in a timely matter and is such an upbeat and friendly person. The website was extremely user friendly and gave us many ideas for our ceremony that we likely would have never thought of on our own. I would highly recommend using Enduring Promises for your special day!

Hi Jess.
It was such a pleasure working with you and Jeffrey to help create a personal ceremony which was a reflection of your personalities and feelings towards one another. Several of your guests commented to me how much they enjoyed the ceremony you two created.

Your wonderful sense of humour and the fact that your ceremony was at the beautiful Credit Valley Golf Course made your ceremony extra special! -Rinette

Belma was a wonderful Officiant. We are so glad that she officiated our ceremony. From the moment that we met her, we knew that she would hbave a calming effect on us and do an efficient job. We paid the extra money to have a wedding rehearsal and everyone felt at ease with Belma and knew exactly what to do when the day came. In fact, both myself and my husband slept soundly the night before with no worries! Belma conducted the ceremony with humor and was well spoken. We received many compliments on her afterwards. We are truely grateful that she officiated our service and would highly recommend her!

Our officiant Richard Bristow of Enduring Promises did a fantastic job for us leading up to the wedding and on our wedding day. Richard was very supportive in helping us design a ceremony that fit our needs, giving us good feedback and assisting us with filling in some of the blanks.

With Enduring Promises' very easy to use online ceremony tool we were able to design our ceremony, save it and send a copy to Richard for his review and comment at any time. Richard met our expectations in every way and made planning our ceremony a stress-free task.

Our rehearsal went off without a hitch and made my entire wedding party feel comfortable with the order in which our wedding day's events would unfold. My guests were commenting on what a great job Richard did on our wedding day and how professional he was. I would absolutely recommend Enduring Promises and Richard Bristow specifically, to any brides out there still looking for an officiant.

Hi Brooke and Brad,

Thank you both for your positive words regarding me and Enduring Promises. It was a great pleasure to officiate your wedding and be part of your special day and celebration.

Having your Grandfather play his ‘bag-pipes’ for your processional and recessional made for a special and very personalized ceremony for you and your guests.

The wedding would not have been the same without the exposed knees of the Groom and his Groomsman. I’m am so glad however, that you did not ask me to wear a kilt as well!

I wish you well as you continue your life’s journey together as husband and wife. ~ Richard

Rinette was our wedding officiant and it was so amazing having the chance to work with her. During our first meeting, she made us feel comfortable and at ease, and got to know us and our story.

We would highly recommend having a wedding rehearsal with your officiant present. Rinette was supportive and so helpful in helping us to coordinate all the ceremony details. She also did an amazing job keeping everyone focused and on task, while having fun at the same time.

We were planning to have an outdoor ceremony, and of course, right as our ceremony started, so did the pouring rain! Despite that, Rinette did an absolutely amazing job helping to direct everyone safely indoors and helping us keep calm. The ceremony went perfectly from there, and Rinette helped to make it such a special experience. We also received lots of positive feedback from our guests about how wonderful she was to listen to.

We also loved the fact that we could customize our ceremony, and really enjoyed working with the online template. It was great having examples and suggestions at hand for all parts of the ceremony, but was also great having the flexibility to personalize everything. We were able to incorporate elements from both of our cultures into our ceremony.

Thank you so much, Rinette, for everything! Our wedding day will forever be etched in our memories, and we can't thank you enough for helping to make it such a special day and experience.

My husband Mike & I got married last June. Not only were their service the best price (even though we paid a gas premium because we were outside their area), but they were amazing! I loved being able to log in and create our entire ceremony, from the readings to the vows, to the small talk in between. You can make it as religious or as casual as you want, using examples they provide or creating your own completely.
They were quick to answer any questions we had and the officiate - Kip Philp - was so great. He was friendly, helpful and was great in front of an audience. The ceremony was perfect and didn't feel stiff or boring at all!
I highly recommend Enduring Promises and specifically Kip!

We have 100% confidence in his abilities which is VERY important on a wedding day. Weddings are expensive with many different service providers involved. In terms of value per dollar spent, the service and professionalism provided by Richard exceeded those of any of our other service providers by multiples.

1) How did I do as your Officiant? (Did I meet your expectations? Did I help make to reduce the stress and make your day more enjoyable for you as well as your guests? What could I have done differently to make your ceremony more memorable?); Rinette met and exceeded our expectations as a Wedding Officiant. She always displayed a positive attitude and was willing to help and give advice, especially during the Rehearsal Dinner. This significantly helped to reduce the amount of stress on the big day. The Ceremony could not have been improved upon in our opinion.

2) How was the ceremony Console? (Was it useful and ease of use? Would you suggest any changes?) and, The Ceremony Console was easy to use, no complaints here.

3) How was Enduring Promises as a company to work with? (Was the company prompt and helpful in their responses? Would you recommend our services?) Enduring Promises was a pleasure to work with and was very punctual with keeping us apprised. We would most definitely recommend them to family and friends.

Hi Ariel and Laile

It was such a privilege for me to participate in your ceremony.

Including a Tree Planting Ceremony within your celebration was so appropriate given the beautiful surroundings at Terra Cotta. Your church worship team added to the joy and peace of your ceremony.

We couldn't be happier with our officiant (Jim Emerson) from Enduring Promises. We were nervous about picking an officiant online for such an important job, but we were immediately put at ease when we met with Jim. He is kind and genuine and we instantly trusted him. We were emailing back and forth until the date of the wedding, and he had great advice about everything from the elements of the ceremony to ideas for capturing important moments in the day. Despite the planning, we were both very stressed and felt like deer caught in headlights on the wedding day, but he took charge of the ceremony (from the time guests were arriving to the time we left for photos), gently guiding us through the whole thing. Our families and friends even commented on how great a job he did, and wanted to make sure we told him how impressed they were. The company was professional and prompt from my first email, and their website/console was really easy to use and provided really helpful templates that we could work from. We would not hesitate to recommend him or Enduring Promises to anyone looking for an officiant.

We had the most wonderful wedding ceremony, and are so happy that we chose Enduring Promises to help us create the perfect ceremony.

We had Mike as our officiant and he was fantastic - he was friendly and gave us confidence from our very first meeting with him, and he was very helpful throughout the planning process. I found the online planner to be so helpful in creating your own ceremony while avoiding scouring the internet for ideas. On the day of the wedding it rained, but Mike was so kind and helpful, and he made me feel very at ease with our plan B indoor format. He delivered a ceremony that was fun, romantic and memorable.

Our friends and family thought Mike was the perfect officiant for us. Thanks Mike and Enduring Promises for helping to make our wedding day so special!

Sam Cooper was our officiant from Enduring Promises. He did such a lovely job of our ceremony (and friends' of ours last fall).
Enduring Promises has a great user-friendly website that allows you to customise you wedding ceremony and their officiants can review things ahead of time and ask you any questions or make suggestions.
He had such a fabulous calming presence during the ceremony and commanded the room. Not showy or cheesy in the slightest (as some hired officiants can be pretty showy)

I had a last-minute change in wedding plans, and decided to hire an officiant instead of using one of my certified friend's so that they could enjoy the wedding.
I was set up with Jim, and he blew me away right off the bat!
With short notice, he was able to meet and exceed all of the expectations we had for our ceremony. He helped organize our whole wedding party, photographer, and DJ the day of to make everything spectacular.
Although most of my correspondence was with Jim directly, I would also say my overall experience with Enduring Promises was great as well.

Jim did a great job as an officiant. He was very friendly and relaxed, which helped everyone be at ease. Jim provided many insightful suggestions for pictures, ceremony flow and ceremonial elements which helped make the event proceed smoothly. The only thing I would suggest is to have a touch point the day before with the bride and groom by phone?? (If there is no rehearsal) to go through things in a bit more detail. It was a little overwhelming to get last minute instructions just before the ceremony (however basic they were) as remembering to breathe seemed to be a chore at the time....

The ceremony console was very easy to use and the variety of examples provided in each section was very useful in creating our personalized ceremony. I would suggest one addition: incorporate an email/phone trigger/reminder when a change is made to the console. There were a few times when Jim has made changes/comments to the console and we weren't aware, so they went unanswered for days. It would be good to be told to check things without having to log in every day.

Enduring Promises as a company were easy to work with. They responded promptly and were professional. I would highly recommend this company (and JIM!!!) for officiating your wedding ceremony.

Richard Bristow of Enduring Promises was a wonderful Wedding Officiant. My husband and I immediately liked him from the initial meeting, which Richard arranged for us at a convenient location. We felt so comfortable with him that we invited him and his wife to join us for the day. They are both wonderful, wonderful people, and I had many compliments from my guests of how professional Richard was, and how nice the couple were. They fit in like old friends.

Richard exceeded our expectations of what an Officiant was and fulfilled his role and responsibilities beautifully.

When we were setting up the ceremony Richard was very quick and efficient in getting back to us with any changes through the ceremony console and emails. The ceremony console is a great tool. We loved the examples that were provided to the user to use, or to give ideas to the user of what they could use from another source. We used the examples from the console, and were very happy with the wording and expressions that were available at our finger tips.

Enduring Promises is a great company to work with. We emailed a couple of other type wedding officiant companies and were not as satisfied as we were when we emailed Enduring Promises. They provided us with all the information we needed to make a proper decision.

We would definitely recommend Enduring Promises to any couple who are thinking of getting married. They provide the information that you will need and Richard, the Officiant, is a great asset to the company.

Thank you very much for your kind words of appreciation for me personally and for Enduring Promises. It was a pleasure and privilege to participate in helping to make your wedding day memorable for you as well as for your friends and families.

I am glad you were able to create your ceremony and find all you needed in the examples provided on the Enduring Promises console.

I wish you both well, with joy and happiness in abundance, as you continue your life’s journey together as husband and wife. ~ Richard

We felt very comfortable and confident in Jim after our first meeting. He explicitly explained each part and walked us through the process of planning our wedding ceremony. He answered all our questions and was readily accessible via email. On the day of the wedding, he again, guided us through the run down of the ceremony so everybody knew what they were doing. Jim definitely made the planning of the ceremony stress-free.

Both my husband and I loved planning the wedding with Jim through the website. It was easy to use, with many examples that we can take from. We were able to choose specific readings, and refining it to reflect us. Once we input our thoughts and sent it to Jim, he would give us his feedback, usually within 1 business day. The console allowed the communication process to be easy between us and Jim. We were then able to download the ceremony and pass it on to the DJ, to ensure all the music was played at the right time.

We strongly recommend Enduring Promises and Jim Emerson to couples. Rinette was very prompt with her emails, and helping us troubleshoot problems around logging in to the console. Overall, we were very happy with the service and really glad Jim can be part of our big day.

Jim Giles our officiant was there when we needed him, and knew not to bombard us with communications when we were running up to the final weeks. His easy, calm and professional manner really helped bring the ceremony together (and he prompted us without skipping a beat when we didn't remember to reply to the affirmation!).

Enduring Promises' website was super helpful in crafting a personalised intimate ceremony that all of our friends & family were very impressed by. Dealing with them was also easy, speedy and very efficient. As we were planning this from another country, they accommodated our request for Interac e-transfer payments.

All in all, they turned it up to eleven! :) Thanks again!

Finding Enduring Promises really helped lift a load off our back. From the initial request, they contacted us back within 10 minutes of sending the email! We were recommended by some other friends to have Jim Emerson be our officiant and he made our entire ceremony that much more wonderful.

From meeting with us and going through how we could personalize (and there was a LOT of suggestions) our ceremony to the wedding day when he stepped through with everyone the final small details. He even talked with the photographers and told them the run down so to suggest best possible angles for some photos! There is also a very easy-to-use web based app that helped us compose our script!

We were initially set on having a friend marry us and after the initial meet up with Jim, we were totally convinced that Jim was the one to marry us. So passionate and personable. His sense of humour was also a great plus. So many friends and family told us after our wedding day was over that our ceremony was very memorable and Jim had a lot to do with it.

Thanks Jim and Enduring Promises!

The online resources that enduring promises provides are excellent, with a million things on the go with planning a wedding it really helped us. We could not organize a rehearsal as we had a majority of the wedding party coming in from out of town and with a few minutes Jim took full control and guided everyone. Our ceremony went so smoothly and we were so happy (as you will see from the pictures). Jim calmed our nerves by speaking to us through the whole thing, it really helped!!!

Rinette Emerson was recommended by a friend and we used her as our officiant. She was AMAZING. Calm, funny, and reassuring, she had lots of good wedding-related advice to share and made us feel very at ease (during the very hectic wedding-planning process!)

Enduring Promises has a website that helps you organize your ceremony and suggests different wordings and readings. It was quite easy to use.

A few of our guests commented on how great Rinette was (one said she was the best officiant he'd seen perform a wedding). I would most definitely recommend her to any friends looking for an officiant (thanks, Rinette!!!)

Jim was amazing from day one. He met us at a convenient location to discuss the possibility of using him for our ceremony, no obligations and no pressure. We knew from that night we met him, that he would be perfect for our special day, and we were spot on. Jim was beyond our expectations in every aspect of the ceremony. We had the rehearsal with him to practice the ceremony, and it was well worth the little bit extra to ensure everything runs smooth. The rehearsal really does reduce the stress the day of (and there is enough of that, trust us) so we would recommend that to everyone.

The ceremony console was one of the easiest things to use, and allowed us to completely customize our ceremony. Jim was there every step of the way, and had suggestions/comments that only enhanced the results. In the end, everything said was completely up to us, and therefore was a completely unique wedding.

All in all, Enduring Promises is an exceptional company to work with. They respond very quickly to any questions, and even send out reminders with little comments to settle any nerves that might be building up. They are more than just another Officiant service, they are THE Officiant service to use if you want guaranteed results on your wedding day!

Thanks again Jim, you were an amazing part of our special day, if we could give you more than 5/5 we would!

We could not have asked for a better person to officiate our wedding than Jim. Not only did Jim help us through our preparation for the ceremony, but he was a calming source during the ceremony. Jim helped us put together a beautiful, personal ceremony and he made sure things went smoothly so we, as a couple, didn't have to worry about a thing. Jim made our guests feel welcome and a part of the day and he was our guide through the ceremony when we surely weren't thinking straight in that moment. Our ceremony could not have been more perfect or been more enjoyable. When someone says to us "are you glad it's all over", our answer is a quick, "No, let's do it again!" and this really is because of the team we had leading us into a stress free, dream day.

He spent time before the wedding walking us through the details and teaching us the proper way to walk down the isle, give away the bride, hold hands, exchange rings, etc...During the ceremony he was constantly providing us with positive comments and making us feel relaxed. He allowed extra time for photos during the ceremony and even recommended fantastic symbolic shots. He was very flexible and kept saying "this is your day" make it as simple or creative as you wish and he honoured all our requests. We never thought getting married would be so easy, Jim played a major role in that. Thank You Jim!

Rinette was our officiant and she was absolutely fantastic. From the beginning she put us at ease and lead us through the ceremony planning process with such a kind confidence. She is truly passionate about her work and therefore her great personality was able to be seen by not only ourselves, but our guests who loved her.

The ceremony console was very easy to use. Due to its clean and simple design and numerous suggestions, we were able to mix and match our vows and add readings from within the site but also have the freedom to add our own. After an entire year of wedding planning and preparations, it was refreshing to have such an easy ceremony planning experience.

We feel as though we can't say enough good things about Enduring Promises. They truly did a terrific job and I couldn't have asked for a better officiant. Rinette was always just a phone call or email away and often times replied to us within minutes. She gave suggestions when and where appropriate as we were planning our ceremony but more importantly understand that each ceremony should be unique because no two couples are the same.

Rinette was our officiant and she was absolutely fantastic. From the beginning she put us at ease and lead us through the ceremony planning process with such a kind confidence. She is truly passionate about her work and therefore her great personality was able to be seen by not only ourselves, but our guests who loved her.

The ceremony console was very easy to use. Due to its clean and simple design and numerous suggestions, we were able to mix and match our vows and add readings from within the site but also have the freedom to add our own. After an entire year of wedding planning and preparations, it was refreshing to have such an easy ceremony planning experience.

We feel as though we can't say enough good things about Enduring Promises. They truly did a terrific job and I couldn't have asked for a better officiant. Rinette was always just a phone call or email away and often times replied to us within minutes. She gave suggestions when and where appropriate as we were planning our ceremony but more importantly understand that each ceremony should be unique because no two couples are the same.

We will definitely be recommending Rinette and Enduring Promises to future bride and grooms. Everyone deserves to have the experience we did with such a fantastic company, who cares not only about officiating on the wedding day, but helping you along your marriage journal as well. Read less

Our officiant - Jim Emerson, from the day we met him in person, to the day of the wedding, was very professional and helpful in assisting us in creating and personalizing our ceremony. I appreciated the fact that Jim was either a text message, email or phone call away. That definitely made us very confident in Jim being our officiant.

Enduring Promises as a company was very helpful as well. The "behind the scenes" people brought Jim and us together. We really appreciated the "wedding ceremony" console on their website. That made it almost effortless in creating our ceremony.

On the day of the wedding Jim really worked with us and our wedding ceremony participants and really helped all of us feel at ease. The ceremony was, indeed, special.

I would definitely recommend Enduring Promises to anyone thinking of wanting to make their wedding ceremony unique and memorable.

I had my wedding on Feb 2nd. We contacted Enduring Promises to officiate our wedding. Enduring Promises married my sister back in May of 2012 and were very happy so we decided to contact them for our wedding. Although we had different officiants, we were so happy with who we had. We met with Richard Bristow. He was very flexible with where our first meeting was and made sure it was a convenient location for both of us. Richard was so friendly and so nice we knew right away we wanted to proceed. Richard responded promptly to my emails, questions and offered advice throughout the planning process. Enduring Promises has an online ceremony template that helped us so much with the flow of the ceremony. They offer ideas of how you may want your ceremony with examples of vows, readings, ceremony elements be it religious, non-religious etc. If you have your own vows or readings you can use them as well. They were definitely worth the value in terms of price as well. The day of the wedding Richard was very helpful, he offered some words of advice to me as well as spoke with my husband and wedding party before the ceremony took place. Richards' wife also happened to be there and she was very kind and helpful as well. I have already referred a friend that is getting married next year to Enduring Promises and highly recommend them to anyone that is planning their wedding.

Our officiant Mike from Enduring Promises was absolutely amazing. We have received nothing but positive feedback about our wedding ceremony and everyone loved the winebox idea. Thank you for reccomending it. We felt that you had a great presence and really made it an enjoyable experiance for everyone. You guided us through the ceremony very smoothly and you surpassed both of our expectations. I wish I could relive it all over again.
The template was easy to use and made everything so easy to put together. Because we have never been married before, we didn't really know the flow of a ceremony or how any of it was supposed to work. The ceremony template made it easy to visualize what was actually going to happen, which helps a lot when planning a wedding.
Enduring Promises is great! I will recommend them to anyone that is planning a wedding and is in need of an officiant.

Thanks for being there Mike and thank you for making our day that much more special.

Rinette was outstanding! We couldn't of asked for a more warm, caring, organized and friendly officiant. She truly felt like family from the moment we first met. I especially like how she came to visit me in my bridal suite before the ceremony to check to see how I was doing, such a thoughtful gesture! We got numerous comments from our guests saying that ours was the best wedding ceremony they had ever attended. They couldn't get over how uniquely personal it was, which is all due to the vast selection of ceremony template options that the Enduring Promises website offered. They have something for everyone, from modern to traditional. It was so easy to use and all of the readings etc. were much better than anything we could of ever come up with on our own. I would highly recommend Enduring Promises to any couple getting married.

Jim Emerson was absolutely phenominal. He guided us through the process of getting married and maintained humour but also order throughout the entire planning stages as well as on our big day. He was always just a call or email away to answer all of our questions and we felt instantly comfortable with him. He allowed us to have a relaxed, fun ceremony with some humour added as this reflected my husband and I. I will continue to share Jim's services with all of my friends who will be getting married in the future. Thanks so much Jim and Go Penguins!

Jim was amazing. He made our ceremony feel light and comfortable, creating the perfect balance of fun and seriousness. He was attentive and helpful with the entire creating the ceremony process, as well as the rehersal and the wedding itself. He is very easygoing and has a great sense of humor, and really made our wedding perfect.

The ceremony template that Enduring Promises provides is extremely easy to use and gives enough options for each part of the ceremony that you can truly make it your own. We felt that we had a totally custom built ceremony, and many of our friends and family really enjoyed the personal touches woven into it.

Working with Enduring Promises was easy, as they are efficient and quick to respond to any request. We highly recommend Enduing Promises, and most importantly Jim, to facilitate and officiate the most important part of your wedding day.

Jim was an absolute pleasure to work with. He made things easy, and fluid. We didn't have to memorize anything, and he immediately removed any anxiety we had. Jim was serious in times he needed to be, but kept things light and humorous when appropriate, which we truly enjoyed. Jim prepared us for everything from photos of the rings before the ceremony, to setting up our cues for entrances and music, to positioning the photographer for photos during and after the ceremony. Jim was delightful throughout the ceremony, very easy to work with, very pleasant. We had three days of celebration after the official ceremony conducted by Enduring Promises, and I must say, the ceremony with Enduring Promises was my favorite, simply because of how easy Jim made things. In the end, Jim even gave us tips on how to show our wedding certificate when we go on our honeymoon so that we can get discounts for when we travel in our first year of marriage. We sincerely thank you for your help.

Enduring promises was easy to work with. Very prompt in their responses, and once they had all the information from us it was a simple process. It really felt like we had no work to do, which was a relief. Any questions we had were quickly answered, and there were no worries leading up to and during the ceremony.

Finding an officiant was, I think, the most difficult task in planning our wedding. Anyone we contacted was either booked for our wedding date, booked for our ceremony time or simply did not reply to our enquiries. We found Enduring Promises through a general internet search.

When we first met with our Officiant, Rinette, we felt she was clear, concise and confident. She shared ideas about what, in her experience, worked well in other ceremonies. At the end of our meeting, Rinette was respectful in offering us time to think about this decision, but we were decided.

Having a small wedding party, we did not have a ceremony rehearsal. We were confident that Rinette could take on the responsibility of letting everyone know the flow of the ceremony, where to be and when to be there; from groom & groomsmen, bride & bridesmaids to the readers, the ceremony was seamless - I didn't even notice Rinette signaling to the readers to take their place - the ceremony was perfect!

Enduring Promises provides each couple with a login/password to their ceremony template. This made it SO easy to choose readings and vows but wasn't so strict that changes couldn't be made. This template made planning the ceremony enjoyable!

Enduring Promises was a breeze to work with, always responding in a prompt manner and helpful in comments and suggestions.

Many guests that attended the ceremony commented on how lovely it was.

I would 100% recommend this vendor to other couples.

Mike had been recommended to us by friends that used him to officiate their wedding. From the moment we saw Mike perform, we knew that he was the perfect officiant for us. Mike made the process easy, fun, seemless and stress free. We had originally been quite nervous about how to approach the ceremony process, but Mike answered any question we may have had and provided us with the perfect ceremony. It was fun, romantic and personal. We could not have been more happy!

We had Paul Hilsden officiate our wedding and he was fantastic! Enduring Promises offers an easy way to put together a ceremony that truly reflects you as a couple, with a wide range of suggested readings, opening words, vows, etc. You can also add in any of your own choices if they are not listed. While this program made the planning easy, Paul was also great to work with, he was very responsive and friendly throughout. At our rehearsal he was a hit, helping to organize our wedding party while keeping things fun and light. We felt very prepared for our wedding day, where he officiated our ceremony with warmth and professionalism.

Our Wedding officiant was Rinete Emerson, and we could not have asked for a better one.
She was very helpful and patiently guided us through the whole process before the ceremony.
On the day of, the first time we met her, she was very friendly and immediately put us at ease with her sense of humor and warmth.
Even our married friends at the ceremony wished they had her as their officiant.
We would definitely recommend Enduring Promises to everyone.

Our wedding officiant, Jim Emerson, exceeded our expectations at every turn. Not only were he and the Enduring Promises team helpful and responsive to every question leading up to our wedding, but Jim wore many hats during both the rehearsal and ceremony. He was a coach, referee, maestro, and friend. He put us at ease and kept us organized, and his charming demeanor and kind outlook on life made our guests feel like they were indeed bearing witness to something special. Additionally, the Enduring Promises online ceremony template was incredibly helpful - it guided each step we needed to consider in preparing for our big day. I highly recommend both Jim and Enduring Promises to any couple who are considering this monumental step in their relationship.

Working with Enduring Promises as a company was a great experience and we would definitely recommend the company to our friends and family. The value for their service is a great pro as well. In the beginning stages, it was nice to meet our officiant and chat about the ceremony and officiant responsibilities. She was always there to answer our questions or concerns and was so amazing at the venue when we did our run through of the ceremony. Everyone left knowing what to do. On the day of our wedding, our officiant kept us calm before the ceremony as well as during it! The ceremony is something I will cherish forever and she was such a great part of it.

Jim did a fabulous job, and we really appreciated all the help he was able to give us while we developed the ceremony. The website has a fantastic guide to building the ceremony, and we had a lot of online consultation with our officiant in the weeks leading up to the big day. When we got to the actual wedding day, we had 2 unforeseen events: the bride forgot the marriage licence, and a close family member fell and had to be carted off in the ambulance. Jim kept everything on course, and then met with us the following day to do a properly legal ceremony. We are very grateful for Enduring Promises' professionalism and flexibility.

Our wedding day was perfect! We can’t Mr. Jim Emerson enough! We’re immensely grateful for his expertise in helping us arrange the ceremony we envisioned along with his poise and humour on the day! Jim's arrangement of our procession and attention to detail made our day wonderfully memorable for us and our guests.

The ceremony template provided by the Enduring Promises website was ideal. Despite the distance between us the website gave us common material to work with on our separate schedules.

Rinette Emerson was phenomenal as our officiant and ceremony planning guide. Right from the first moment that we met her she was warm, friendly and very compassionate about her job. She had many fantastic ideas and our ceremony was by far the best part of our wedding. We received so many compliments on our ceremony and our officiant. She made everyone feel welcome and brought all these strangers together. She guided us through the whole ceremony. Our wedding was unforgettable for not only us but our guests because of her help.
We found the online template very helpful and we were able to design our ceremony at our pace and get feedback from Rinette in a very timely manner whenever we needed it. Even the company was very prompt in getting us set up with an officiant quickly and without confusion.

We would highly recommend this company and specifically this officiant for any type of wedding.

Overall, an excellent experience with Enduring Promises Inc. We hired Mr. Bristow to be our wedding officiant and we were very pleased. He was very professional and had the perfect combination of both humour and sombreness which was perfect for our ceremony. The english accent also added a little extra. He certainly made our day memorable and special. The wedding ceremony template was very useful and easy to use. It made planning the ceremony extremely easy and stress-free. As a company, Enduring Promises was very good to deal with. They were very prompt and helpful in responding to all our questions and needs. I would certainly recommend their services, and Mr. Bristow as an officiant.

Rinette was our officiant and she was fabulous! Right from the initial consultation meeting we felt comfortable with her and were very confident that we chose the right company and person to marry us.

Rinette was very sincere and did not make the ceremony feel like our guests were being "talked at". She was incredibly flexible in terms of scheduling our rehearsal and was very patient with us taking our time filling out the template. She became part of a secret mission which was a huge surprise singsong from the groom for the bride in the middle of the ceremony and not only did she keep the secret, she participated in the surprise.

The template is very helpful with planning the wedding ceremony and offers many wording options, readings etc. which you can, but are not limited to, choose from.

We would definitely recommend Enduring Promises to anyone considering using an officiant for their wedding ceremony. Rinette, especially, was absolutely outstanding and we have nothing but good things to say about her and we have great memories of our perfect ceremony that she effortlessly gave us.

Jim, from Enduring promises was the perfect person to wed us. We are so grateful to have shared our wedding day with his presence and humble words; it brought both of us to tears. We can't thank Jim enough for guiding us in our ceremony. Our friends were speechless, and so are we. Jim, we thank you for the beautiful service and for making our day very special.

The first time I heard Rinette on the phone, I know she was the One officiant that we can trust and rely on. From the minute I contact her, everything happens very fast, and well-organized. We met up with her and she walked us thru everything from A-Z, explained carefully about the service and tips for each steps. My first impression of her was her enthusiasm, warm-hearting and sincerity and last but not least, her beautiful smile and voice.

She closely follow up with us through emails and phone calls and continuously provide me as a busy bride so much help and answered to all my questions and concerns. The program templates on their website is very user-friendly.
And the most important day of my life came, Rinette showed up an hour early, to have a talk with me. She walked me through everything again, and she told me " at the end of the day, just relax and enjoy the moment". And I did. And truly she have helped my ceremony one of the most intimate, warm and romantic according ceremony, according to my family and guests.
There is nothing else that I can change about my wedding, and I'd like to thank Rinette again for saving so much stress preparing for this day as she was always there for me and my husband.

From start to finish, Enduring Promises made planning our ceremony easy. The ceremony template and sample passages offered through Enduring Promises were extremely helpful; we wouldn't have known where to begin had it not been for this. Enduring Promises matched us with a wonderful officiant, Jim Emerson, who did a fabulous job on the day of our wedding and also during the preparations. He cares very much about his role as officiant. He was extremely attentive during the planning of our ceremony and always provided prompt feedback. We were so pleased with our ceremony and how we were truly able to make it a reflection of who we are as a couple. We are happy to recommend both Jim and Enduring promises to any couple in search of a way to make their ceremony their own.

From the moment we met with Rinette we knew our wedding ceremony was going to be much easier to plan than we had originally thought. She was extremely helpful in walking us through the whole planning process. Using the website to build our ceremony was so simple and convenient. Any questions we did have for Rinette were answered within 24 hours. After we made changes to our ceremony and sent them off to her she responded right away with tips and suggestions. Rinette helped with giving our ceremony a personal feel that included our families, which was important to us. We have had so many compliments from family and friends, with some saying it was one of the best weddings they've been too!
Thank you again to Rinette and Enduring Promises for helping to make our wedding day everything we dreamed of.

We were extremely pleased with the services provided by Rinette and Paul of Enduring Promises. Rinette was our first point of contact who had taken the time to explain the documents we needed to prepare for our wedding, the time frames and details of the process. She was extremely responsive, and very detailed.

We were extremely pleased with the services provided by our Officiant, Paul Mittelstaedt of Enduring Promises. First and foremost, Paul is extremely helpful, kind, and genuine, and he made the process of preparing our ceremony seamless. Paul exceeded our expectations and he was responsive and available every step of the way by phone or email to answer any of our questions or requests for suggestions.

I am of Filipino descent and my husband of Japanese and Egyptian decent, and I wanted to incorporate a traditional Filipino coin ceremony using the same coins my parents used when they were married. Paul was resourceful and offered suggestions of how to incorporate this small portion into our ceremony based on his experience conducting Filipino weddings. Paul was also equipped with an Blackberry Playbook which was a surprise! We didn't expect to see an Officiant with a mobile device which had wireless access to assist in our introductory meeting. This was an extremely effective and efficient tool in which he used to walk us through the steps involved in creating our personalized ceremony online.

Enduring Promises offers an online template for creating your wedding ceremony. The ceremony template was so very easy to use, it provided standard selections (ie. vows, opening, etc.) we could choose from or the option to customize. It was a extremely easy to understand and it allowed you the feature to save and come back to it another time if required including an option to edit should you change your mind about how something sounds.

We highly recommend working with Enduring Promises and it was an absolute pleasure!

A helpful hint for future brides AND grooms: Make sure you've chosen or personalized your vows, as they are what makes your ceremony most special to you! Also, just like other things that should be delegated to someone else to hold (shoes, dressbag, tissues, etc.), make sure you have an extra copy of your vows!

From our very first meeting with Rinette, we knew that she was the perfect officiant for us. She was warm and professional with a great sense of humour. Most importantly, Rinette really listened to us and took the time to understand what we wanted for our ceremony. During our no obligation in-person consultation (something that many other companies were not willing to provide), Rinette took the time to talk us through all aspects of the process including the ceremony template. This template proved to be a very useful tool. It gave us suggestions for ceremony content but also allowed us to personalize every aspect. It also helped us when my husband was on the road for work during the planning process. He was able to log in and review and revise content while away.

Rinette was most helpful to us during the planning process. She always returned emails promptly and her responses were thoughtful and thorough. Rinette is clearly committed to her work and she was very supportive and helpful. She gave us feedback and ideas, but never attempted to force our choices.

On our wedding day, Rinette arrived with her bright smile and calming presence and made sure to check in with us and with our friends and family who were involved in the ceremony. I was able to focus on getting ready knowing that things were in good hands with Rinette.

Rinette did a beautiful job of our ceremony and we would wholeheartedly recommend her to others.

Thanks very much!!

I would just like to say that Matt Delaney with Enduring Promises was amazing, the best person we felt to make our ceremony go smoothly, and help us get to the point of being husband and wife.
From the time that we contacted Enduring Promises to the last minute they were courteous, professional and caring. I am so pleased that we decided to go with them.
Matt helped make our day that much more special and I would definitely recommend him to anyone I know that is getting married and looking for an officiant. WE had an extra special touch in our ceremony that was unexpected, and Matt allowed us to make it our own, and was agreeable with everything with asked.

Thank you again Enduring Promises and Matt for helping make our dreams come true.

We had Rinette Emerson as our Officiant for our special day and she was perfect. Rinette was professional, friendly and had a number of useful tips and ideas when planning our ceremony.

Prior to the wedding she ensured that we had all the necessary elements of our wedding organized. On the day of, she facilitated the ceremony so everyone was aware of their duties and that the ceremony was memorable and ran smoothly.

Enduring Promises was a great company to deal with. All my questions and concerns were quickly responded to. Their template for wedding planning was easy to use and had a variety of choices to help tailor the wedding to reflect us as a couple.

I would recommend Enduring Promises to anyone looking for an excellent officiant for their wedding.

We could not have been happier with the service provided by our officiant Jim and with Enduring Promises as a whole. 
 
First, we really liked the online ceremony planner as it was very organized and easy to use.  It was great to have different examples and ideas laid out so that we could build our wedding and include whatever ceremony elements we wanted.  We liked that we were able to take the ideas that were given and add things that we wanted to say to make our wedding more personal and in keeping with how we envisioned it.  We also liked that we were able to communicate with our officiant online and that he was able to guide us along and offer advice in this manner.  Planning a wedding can be so time consuming so we found this online correspondence to be really helpful and such a time saver.
 
We honestly could not thank Jim enough for all his hard work.  From the moment we met him at our consultation, we knew that he was exactly the person we wanted to be involved in our special day.  At our first meeting we spent quite a lot of time getting to know each other and we could just tell that he was very kind and thoughtful and was genuinely committed to making our day special. On the day of the wedding Jim explained everything clearly and thoroughly, and took the time to go through all the details with us and our wedding party, which we really appreciated.  The wedding was really organized and ran very smoothly and Jim brought a really friendly and intimate quality to our ceremony. We are really thankful for the guidance Jim provided in planning the ceremony and for all his help and advice.
 
We very highly recommend Enduring Promises to anyone who is looking for a wedding officiant and hopefully you will be as lucky as we were to get Jim as your officiant.
