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 are a couple who decided to get married six weeks after my husband proposed. In November 15, 2014 we had the privilege of having Gust as our officiate. There aren't enough words to describe of how passionate Gust is about his job. He really does care. We chose him from his online description and the other amazing reviews other couples have left about him. Since the day we met with him we knew we wanted him to marry us. Gust its very created when it comes to vows. I loved the vows he created for us. When I, the wife, was saying my vows i couldn't finish because of tears of joy but he was calm and carried on and I thought that was very impressive and well done. He made us feel supported and made our special day even more special. We highly recommend Gust to anyone getting married, he deserves the best rating!

We had a lot of fun with Gust at our Halloween-costumed rehearsal and unique Christian ceremony on November 1, 2014. Gust was a little late for our rehearsal due to traffic, but he showed up in a scary mask and fit right in with our crazy, dressed up families! Gust was happy to let me customize the whole wedding ceremony to reflect our personalities, faith and interests. Our guests commented that it was the best wedding ceremony they have ever attended -- so personal, whimsical and unique. Gust has a deep, clear voice and makes lots of eye contact with the audience, drawing them in. Gust was an integral part of making our day so special!

Our wedding day was perfect with help from Gust! He kept the mood light and knew exactly what we wanted. Sometimes, wedding parties need a little direction and Gust did exactly that. He added our love story to be a part of the ceremony, which was wonderful and heartfelt. We could not have asked for a better ceremony, Thank you so much Gust! :)

We contacted Gust with very little time to meet and plan our ceremony. He was very understanding and professional, and worked with us every step of the way to make it all come together -even with the time constraints. Our ceremony was small, informal, intimate and secular; Gust tailored everything according to our needs and make it the perfect day.

Gust was AMAZING! We are not an overly religious couple but wanted a ceremony that catered to who we are as individuals as well as a couple. Gust sat down with us personally and then created a perfect ceremony for us. I found him by luck and I don't think our ceremony could have been more perfect without him. He performed a humorous and emotional ceremony that was absolutely perfect. All I can say is it was PERFECT!

Gust was truly wonderful to work with. He was able to create a ceremony that was unique and individual to us. He is very organized and was helpful during the rehearsal so that we all felt more comfortable for the big day. Many of my guests complimented on how the ceremony fit myself and my husband perfectly and that it brought tears to their eyes (as well as mine)! I would recommend Gust to anyone.

Stevenie and I are both from the San Francisco Area and we found Gust's site by recommendation from Allie at the English Inn in Eaton Rapids, Michigan. From the first moment that we talked with Gust on the phone we were confident that he was the right choice. From nearly 2500 miles away we casually corresponded with him and put together the outline of our wedding day ceremony. He inspired us to write our own vows which turned out to be the very best part of the service and was the most moving part for both of us and everyone present. He was very liberal in his approach to allowing us to add or subtract from the outline that he gave us and he custom tailored a tone was perfect for us and our families. We had a small wedding and he was the absolute perfect choice for our special day. It is nearly a month now that we have been married and every day we wake up with happy smiles on our faces remembering how perfect Gust and the English Inn were for both of us. We would do it all over again and some day we will with Gust as the officiant. Super Highly Recommended from a happy California Couple married in Michigan. David and Stevenie

Gust was a great officiant for our wedding! He helped us to craft our ceremony and make it all that we wanted it to be while guiding us through aspects that we were unsure about. His experience and professionalism took the pressure off of the details of the moment and allowed our ceremony to be heart-felt and intimate. I would definitely recommend Gust as an officiant for anyone's wedding!
