Gust Bassianotis is the winner of WeddingWire's Bride's Choice Award 2013, 2012 and 2011 and the preferred professional wedding officiant of over 30 locations in Michigan including locations like The Amway Grand Plaza, Frederik Meijer Gardens and Sculpture Park, English Hills, the Trillium and The Weston and Hilton Hotels in Detroit, Michigan. With a strong history of performing hundreds of elegant weddings, ForeverTwogether's lead creator Gust Bassianotis, focuses on your expectations and ideas for your ceremony. He is experienced, credentialed, and committed to helping you.


Wedding ceremonies are routine, pretty much the same and even kind of boring. They usually follow the same basic pattern. Now what if you surprised your guests with something they weren’t expecting? What if your love story was shared at your ceremony? What if instead of a verbal consent you planned a non-verbal romantic consent only between you and your love.

That's what Gust Bassianotis and ForeverTwogether can do for you – help make your ceremony personalized, romantic, interesting and enjoyable.

Experience the power of your own personal love story included in your wedding ceremony.

“I recognize that selecting a wedding officiant is somewhat of an unfamiliar process. My goal in working together is to make this a fun and easy experience - no weirdness or hassles - just the joy of knowing we like each other and we have the marvelous opportunity to create and work together on a lifetime moment.”

ForeverTwogether serves the State Of Michigan and welcomes your call at 616-455-3194 or email at info@forevertwogether.com to set up a time for coffee and conversation and to inquire about my availability.

We meet on the internet and felt the only place to find our officiate would be on the internet. After interviewing several officiates we spoke with Gust and that made our decision final. We knew we had found the best of the best! Gust was attentive to our needs in customizing our ceremony to be a reflection of US. He provided a very high standard of service, professionalism and support in preparing for our ceremony. The day of our wedding he arrived early, dressed professional and was very patient as we had to wait for a thunderstorm to pass. The ceremony he delivered was fantastic, he spoke of us and our relationship and children as though he had known us all our lives! Words simply can not express how satisfied we were with Gust. Our advice....look no further, you will not be disappointed! Thank you Gust for launching the rest of our lives together in such a class act! Tim and Colleen Huff

I must say one of the hardest parts of planning our wedding in another state (we live in Florida) was trying to find the right Wedding Officiant. It's hard to gauge someone's personality and professionalism when you are having to do most of your searches online. I had stumbled upon Gust's website on The Knot and was happy to see he had videos and testimonials available for me to look at. I enjoyed his easy going manner and the way he spoke so I saved him as a preferred vendor.

A month later I still hadn't decided on a Wedding Officiant and so I reached out to our Wedding Coordinator, Aletha from Pearls Events, to send me a few recommendations. Her e-mail came back with with Gust's name at the top.

I called Gust and spoke with him and explained we lived in Florida and were having our wedding in Michigan. He assured me this was not a problem and has worked with many couples in the past that had done the same. Gust suggested we set-up some times to Skype so we could get to know him better and feel more comfortable.

Gust was great and made himself readily available to chat, which we really appreciated as our schedules are hectic and finding a time to Skype together was a challenge. Gust luckily was very flexible and made himself available to chat when we were. We were able to connect twice virtually before meeting him in person for our rehearsal.

Gust also was fantastic in creating a ceremony that included our blended family. My husband has 3 daughters from a previous marriage and we we wanted the girls to feel included in the process as much as possible. Gust suggested we do a family stone ceremony and along with that provided a beautiful speech he said during the ceremony. It was perfect.

I am very happy to have met and worked with Gust. He made a true effort to get to know my family and personalize our vows. THANK YOU Gust for being part of our day.

Gust was the perfect choice for our wedding officiant. He has a warm welcoming personality, and so easy to work with. He is easy to get in touch with, and responded promptly to emails. We wanted a non-religious based, personal wedding ceremony. Gust asked us questions about each of us and our relationship, to build a personalized wedding script of our journey as a couple, that we will remember forever!
He arrived to both the rehearsal and ceremony early and professionally dressed. We did not have a wedding planner so it was so nice to have Gust there at the rehearsal. He knows exactly what to do, and put us at ease right from the start. It was such a relief to have someone which such experience and knowledge with you on the most important (and stressful) day of your lives!
We received so many compliments about Gust, and the beautiful ceremony. How warm, yet professional and well spoken Gust was. Many people thought he was a close personal friend of ours because of the genuine personal ceremony he delivered. They thought we had known him for many years. We were so happy with Gust and could not imagine having anyone else officiate our wedding! THANK YOU!

We came across ForeverTwogether.com as we were in search of an officiant for our recent wedding in Grand Rapids. We were new to the area and did not know any officiants personally, so finding Gust Bassianotis through this website was a great blessing! By the time we had our ceremony, you would have never known that we had just met Gust recently. He took the time and care to personalize our ceremony in order to reflect our personality and the story of our relationship, which turned out to be very unique and intimate to match our small wedding theme. Gust was readily available to discuss all of the details of our wedding and answer any questions we had. Prior to the wedding day, we met with Gust in person to go over all of the final details and the script for the big day, which was a great relief to have all the details ironed out before the actual wedding day. Gust was friendly, personable, and really took the time to listen and get to know us in order to reflect our style and personality in our ceremony. Coordination through ForeverTwogether.com was extremely easy and time-saving, and we were able to quickly make payments using PayPal through the website. We would definitely recommend Gust to other couples looking for an officiant who is friendly, easygoing, personable, and takes the time to personalize your wedding ceremony to meet your needs.

He did an excellent job at making sure our ceremony was competent out own and reflected us as a couple. Gust was extremely flexible. We wanted to include our son Blake in out ceremony and Gust tailored everything around that wish.

We received endless compliments about how personal our ceremony was and how he made everyone feel relaxed and involved. Our ceremony was perfect and Gust made that possible. We are united as a happy and loving family because of him.

My husband and I were recently married at Frederik Meijer Gardens and Sculpture Park. We each have a child that we bring into our relationship and opted to have them stand up for us in our wedding. We had a small ceremony with less than 50 people. Gust was our wedding officiant and he did a wonderful job!
Gust was immediately responsive to the many questions I had. It was nice working with someone that has experience and passion for what they do.
We met with Gust the evening before our wedding for a rehearsal. I felt that to be most beneficial as Gust explained the details of our ceremony thoroughly. We felt at ease and confident for the big day.
Gust was great with our children! He joked with them and they enjoyed being around him as well.
I would highly recommend Gust's services. As mentioned earlier, Gust has a passion for what he does and it shows. He wants your day to be the best day!

Gust was very well versed and gave us great direction at the rehearsal and the wedding. I never was worrying about what I had to do next or when to do it. His eye for detail was beyond impressive. He did a great job with the ceremony (My family actually commented "it was the nicest ceremony they had been to"). He really takes the time to make sure that everything is exactly how the bride/grooms wants it to be. He tailored our ceremony perfectly to who we are as a couple and our history together. Gust was very accessible and flexible. We had a last minute time change on the rehearsal and he made it work! We were beyond pleased with ForeverTwogether and would recommend them to anyone/ everyone.

We hired Gust about a year prior to our wedding date and was impressed from the start. He was very personable to what we were looking for in an officiant. When the wedding approached he came up with a ceremony that we were more than pleased with. Gust definitely knew not only how to make us feel comfortable but also the guest. My husband was very nervous before the rehearsal even began, after when we were leaving he seemed completely relaxed. I asked why and he said... "Because Gust told me to be myself." That was all worth it me. After the ceremony I received multiple compliments on how his service was performed. Thank you Gust for your time and being part of our wedding day!

Gust was easy going throughout our first phone call with him. I immediately trusted him and felt comfortable leaving everything to him. Gust sent us some paperwork which asked us questions about ourselves and what we might want him to say as he married us. We filled out the paperwork, flew from our home in Phoenix, and met Gust for the first time in Benton Harbor, Michigan ( where we were married ), just 15 minutes before he married us in front of 85 family members. As it was both of our first marriages, we were nervous. Gust put us at ease. This is a man that immediately made a connection with us, and delivered the goods. The "reading/service" that Gust delivered during the ceremony, is what I like to say, was "his glue" before the "I do!" There are lots of wedding officiants, but we felt pretty lucky choosing him. He was great!!! Highly recommended. He is the Greek you need to seek.

Gust was truely wonderful to work with!! He provided us with rough drafts of his ceremony outline prior to rehearsal and was flexible with any changes we needed to make. He arrived early to both the rehearsal as well as the ceremony which was fantastic. We really hadn't thought too much about the flow of the ceremony prior to rehearsal and we were really nervous about how the actual ceremony would go since we couldn't have rehearse at our venue because there was a wedding there the night before...However, Gust gave us great advice, we made it all work and everything went extremely well. We had many guests compliment us on our ceremony and say that it was one of the best they had ever attended!

Gust was wonderful to work with and made our wedding experience very special. Michael and I were very pleased with just how easy it was to work with Gust as we live in AZ. Through emails and phone calls, Gust was able to get to know us and compose a beautiful and personal wedding ceremony.

We also wanted to thank Whitney (Meijer Gardens) who did an exceptional job with organizing/coordinating our wedding which was so wonderful and ran smoothly.

Gust was exactly what we were hoping for in an Officiant. From the night we hired him up until the wedding day, it seamless and professional. He did a fantastic job with our wedding and made the whole process very simple for us. He has a warm voice and demeanor that made it seem to the guests that he had known us for years. We thank Gust for agreeing to work with us and gladly recommend him to anyone looking for an Officiant. Andrew Cole

Gust was wonderful!!! He really laid everything out for us and made it easy for us to know what we are supposed to be doing. We hired him for the rehearsal the day before our wedding and I'm so glad we did because he knew exactly how to guide us and get us through the practice run. All of our special request were accommodated and I felt that we really made the right choice with Gust. I highly recommend him.

Is there somewhere to put a 10 on here? I'd strongly recommend using Gust as your officiant - he calls you back, he arrives on time, he is professional, and he takes your requests and your ideas seriously. Gust has a wonderful voice, many people commented on it, how it carried, and he seemed to innately know the correct intonation. He fully understand the seriousness, as well as the joy of the occasion, and it seems to me that he feels strongly about giving you the wedding ceremony that you want.
We had a more non-traditional ceremony, and with his guidance, it wasn't overtly 'goofy', it was loving and adorable, and totally fit our personalities. Just as a note, if your wedding is a little less 'hyper planned'? Gust is readily available on Sundays (btw Gust, you saved us!)
I am so glad we went with him, and hope that you call him!

After having to move our wedding back to our home state on short notice, we needed to find a local officiant quickly. We searched online and read several reviews, with Gust being very well rated. We met with him with our wedding less than 2 weeks away. He was extremely responsive, professional, and caring. He asked the right questions, sent us a very nice draft which we were able to modify slightly to meet our needs. He arrived early for the ceremony, conducted it professionally, and was outstanding overall. We would highly recommend him to our friends and for anyone else.

Gust was the perfect officiant. We had interviewed several prior to meeting with Gust and as soon as we meet him we hired him right on the spot. My now husband is extremely picky and wants nothing but the best and when he said you got the job on the spot, I knew he was going to make our special day perfect. And he definitely did. If you are tired of looking no need to look any further just give Gust a call.

From the beginning, Gust was very attentive and patient. It was not easy to find someone who understood our situation - I do not speak English and required a friend to translate our ceremony. Time was also a limiting factor. Gust was very helpful in compiling a perfect ceremony for us. He developed all the details of our ceremony (vows, readings, order of ceremony) and sent us a basic plan for approval via email. This allowed me to know exactly what to expect, and contributed to the fact that everything went smoothly. Gust listened to our needs and made the small changes we requested. He helped us to develop our personal vows, which were included in the ceremony.
Gust did an excellent job at our wedding. He was organized, friendly, and attentive. The ceremony was very intimate and sincere, creating some very special memories. Gust shared with us some insightful aspects of marriage, which is key for any new couple. Our vows were perfect. He also included an individual approach, describing some aspects of our lives. It made the ceremony really special. His voice was soft and soothing. It was very important at the moment of high emotion and natural nervousness. Gust spoke slowly which made it easy for me to repeat. He definitely made the process easier and less stressful for me.
We are very grateful to Gust for conducting our ceremony. We would recommend Gust to perform the wedding ceremony for any couple.

He was very professional and flexible and made sure to answer all our questions. We felt comfortable and at ease throughout the whole thing. He incorporated our personal history and feelings into our vows, which made it so special for us...

I would recommend Gust to my friends and family. You will never be disappointed in his quality of service.

Edward and I planned our wedding together, blending our ideas and preferences to create the perfect setting for a ceremony that would be "uniquely ours". However, when it came to the ceremony itself which we both considered to be the most significant part of our wedding, we found that neither of us knew where to start. This we discovered is the importance of choosing the right officiant.

We decided on Forever Twogether after reading numerous reviews from couples of varying ages and religious beliefs, all indicating an exceptionally high level of satisfaction. When we met Gust, our officiant, we were not at all clear on the ceremony we wanted. Gust has a gentle manner and caring attitude which immediately put us at ease; and he encouraged us to tell him about ourselves. With exceptional insight and ability he helped us to realize that faith in God, heritage and symbolism were the things we valued most. We decided on a traditional Greek ceremony with some slight bit of altering to accommodate our greenhouse setting and American customs. Gust wrote an incredibly beautiful ceremony for us which was everything we hoped it would be. Just before the wedding Edward's sister presented us with a couple of gifts from Greece: a lovely Greek icon and a little bottle of Holy Water which we placed on our wedding altar. During the ceremony Gust used this Holy Water to bless us, which meant so very much to us all. His words were spoken clearly and with a sincerity that touched our hearts.

Thank you, Gust, for helping us experience the beautiful ritual and symbolism of a Greek Orthodox marriage ceremony in the garden setting we wanted, for being so reliable and available, for encouraging and guiding us through this most meaningful time of our lives, and for sharing our joy.

To anyone who may have reservations, I would definitely recommend Gust. He answered all of my emails very promptly, provided us with beautiful vows, and made us feel very at ease. He arrived right on time even though I gave him the wrong address :] (Sorry!) It almost felt like we knew Gust for years, he was very curteous and conscientious of our needs, while making us feel very relaxed on such an exciting day. My husband and I decided to elope after planning an extensive wedding, and luckily Gust was available for us! He was very in -tune to our new found spontaneous streak and let us lead the show! In conclusion, I would recommend Gust to ANYONE- he did a fantastic job!!

He has a great tone of voice and a presence that fills the room. He stressed the importance of the ceremony in the planning process, but also alowed us to build our own unique ceremony that our guests are still raving about. Gust was recommended to us by someone and we would like to extend our recommendation to you!! You won't be let down.

Gust was the officiant for our wedding March 4th 2010. I cannot express in words how wonderful him and his team were from the very first moment we spoke with them. Gust was able to design a custom ceremony for my husband and I. We were looking for a unique ritual for the ceremony and he was able to help us find that. He was so helpful in suggesting different ideas and offering his opinion. We were able to go through the ceremony with him before the wedding day to make sure everything was to our liking. He was very responsive to all email and phone calls and always answered questions promply.
During the rehersal he kept everything flowing well and on time, even with my large wedding party. He was very professional and calm, especially on the day of the wedding. The ceremony was flawless and perfectly designed just for us. I couldnt have asked for anything better. I will definetly recomend him to anyone I know getting married. Gust and Michele, thank you for the most wonderful wedding!

We also needed a photographer, and he recommended his photographer Maira. She took over 300 photos and provided us with photo CD two days later. Maira also, did an awesome job.

Gust was an amazing officiant! We had never met prior to our wedding but he was so friendly, kind, and articulate. We did not have a traditional wedding as we only had my father-in-law and my sister present. He added things into our ceremony that almost made me cry (in a good way). He personalized it so well and im so glad we found him. When we renew our vows one day, I want him to do it again :)

We did not have a traditional wedding as we only had my father-in-law and my sister present. He added things into our ceremony that almost made me cry (in a good way). He personalized it so well and im so glad we found him. When we renew our vows one day, I want him to do it again :) Read less

I can not say enough about working with Gust! Not only was he so fun to get to know and work with, he made our ceremony service one for the books. Obviously my new husband and I are so happy about it but people are still telling us it was the best ceremony they've ever been to. He made our day just all the more special!

Working with Gust at ForeverTwogether during our wedding ceremony was wonderful. He worked with us to craft a very personal and unique ceremony that reflected us as a couple. Gust was incredibly professional and ran both the rehearsal and ceremony itself with a sense of gentle authority that we needed. I could not be happier with Gust as our ceremony officiant and would recommend him to any other couple.

When we discovered that Gust had just finished officiating a Greek Orthodox and Jewish Interfaith wedding 2 weeks before we contacted him, we definitely thought he was going to be the person for us. We were impressed with his sincerity and his knowledge of all the different religions, so we booked him and are very glad we did. As part of our package, he provided us with an amazing book that consisted of various ceremonies, readings, vows, etc. This helped me and my DH create our own ceremony from scratch very easily, which we loved. Gust reviewed the ceremony after we were finished to make sure it flowed well and all that, and offered his opinion, which we really liked as well. He did a great job of taking charge and leading the rehearsal, and on the day of the wedding he did an amazing job. He has a great voice, and really carried out our ceremony as if it were very special to him. We received many compliments on him from our guests, and we are very happy we chose him as our officiant.

Thanks Gust! You did a wonderful job, it was just perfect! We really appreciate your help in our wedding! Everything went so well and it was such a beautiful ceremony! We were wondering why you were not there, so thanks for letting us know! I will let my parents know as well, they felt bad they never got to properly thank you afterwards. They really enjoyed the ceremony as well and thought you did a great job! We just got back from our honeymoon this week and had an amazing time. I just wanted to say that I really appreciated the counseling session we had with you, I know it was only one, but it did help Sam see things clearly and he took it very seriously. Our relationship has improved greatly since that day and we are so happy now! : ) Thanks so much for everything!

I had been planning our wedding for many months and had everything's in order to have our ceremony and reception performed at Frederik Meijer Gardens. Unfortunately the gentleman who was supposed to perform the ceremony had to have emergency back surgery a month before the wedding. I was very nervous about who would not only be available on such a short notice, but also the quality of the officiant. I asked my event coordinator and photographer and both of them told me about Gust at Forever Twogether. They said that he was very professional and had a lot of experience, so I contacted Gust immediately. Luckily he was not booked on our day and after we talked about how everything would go I felt such relief. Gust wrote our vows and made them very personal, even though he did not know us. They were perfect. When it came time for the rehearsal he took charge and gave us all direction, which helped make the day of the wedding run smoothly. I had many of our guests compliment us on the officiant and how beautiful the ceremony was. Gust did a wonderful job.

From the moment my husband and I met Gust, we felt at ease. He was very easy to talk to and seemed genuinely happy for us. He was also very encouraging when I said I wasn't sure if I dared to say my vows in front of my guests. He had no problem with us wanting a non religious based ceremony. He did a great job facilitating our rehearsal before the wedding, we did have to pay extra though for him to be there. When we gave him our suggestions about his speech for the wedding he took them without any issues. Overall, we are very happy that we choose Gust to officiate our wedding ceremony.

Gust is a very good choice if you are looking for a customized ceremony and are not affiliated with a church or religious organization. He met with us approximately 2 months before our wedding so that we could get to know each other and discuss what kind of ceremony we were looking for. In doing this, Gust was able to create a very customized ceremony that reflected our love and did not include any references to God/Jesus, as we felt that would be wrong considering our lack of religious beliefs. We received many compliments from guests about the personalization and meaning of the ceremony. Overall, we are very happy we went with Gust.

Gust did a beautiful job officiating our wedding. He wrote a wedding ceremony script for us but I ended up writing our own and he rolled with it. The day of the wedding I got to the event 3 hours early to decorate and he was there practicing the script. I was very impressed that he got there so early.

Gust did a fantastic job as the officiant for our wedding. My wife and I were recently married at the Blue Dress Barn on October 20, 2013. Gust delivered a very sweet and sincere ceremony. His professionalism is great, and his modern meeting techniques of using Skype really helped us as we are located in Chicago. He took the time to get to know us and understand what it is about us that made my wife and I click. He articulated this all very well in the ceremony which I received several praises from guests at the wedding. I would certainly recommend Gust for anyone's wedding! Thanks for the wonderful day, Gusto!

Gust provided Carol and I the utmost in professionalism. We were a little unnerved when my long time family counselor was unable to perform the service however Gust immediately put us at ease after our initial visit at out home. His demeanor was the perfect balance of intensity and graciousness, class and respect for the moment at hand. We still continue to revive compliments surrounding the entire day and I know that is largely due to Gust’s participation.

Gust wrote & officiated a great wedding ceremony for us! We were quite impressed with how well worded he was. We met a couple different times along the way, from that I think that helped Gust understand our dynamic as a couple and really get to know us better. He was very helpful and responsive through email in constructing our ceremony. He worked with us to tailer the ceremony to our liking. While we wanted a religious ceremony, we wanted it to be on the shorter side, very personal, and laid back. A few guests commented how nice it was to have a ceremony less then 30 minutes, so I know it was appreciated. Gust put special attention into the wedding rehearsal as well, to make sure everyone knew exactly where and when they were supposed to be where. It was especially helpful for my dad, since this was his first child he was "giving away" and wanted to do so properly. He arrived early the day of and made a point of wishing us well before the ceremony. Very thoughtful! We would recommend this officiate.
