Highly Recommend Clark!!

We had the pleasure of having Clark Canning officiate our wedding and it went exceptionally well and smoothly because of him. He is very easy to communicate with, quick to make last minute adjustments if necessary, and is all around very delightful and has a warm and approachable energy. He also is highly knowledgeable on the paperwork needed. We were very lucky to have him officiate our special day and would strongly recommend him!

Thank you, Clark!!

Highly recommend! 5/5

Our officiant Brian delivered on a truly unforgettable ceremony and was amazing to work with as well. The whole process was very easy, and he helped calm our nerves leading up to the big day 🙂
We would highly recommend Enduring Promises and Brian to any couple looking for an officiant!

We are so blessed to find Mr. Clark Canning as our wedding officiant from Enduring Promises!

Enduring Promise is one-of-a-kind innovation…it’s like finding a lake in the desert for us. We were so lost searching officiants in the city database and almost gave up because it’s just impossible to do such research through so many calls until we found Enduring Promise. Just one call solved all my problems. From that point, everything became very simple with high standard and details customed to personal preference. What a wonderful relief for us.

Mr. Clark Canning was such a great officiant! He is so handsome, professional, humorous, whose performance was adding so much charm to our ceremony! Everyone loved him. We enjoyed so much his process with relaxing atmosphere and great manner. In order to have a smooth process, Mr. Clark Canning made sure to have simple and efficient communications before the wedding. His great experiences insured our success! We are forever grateful to have him in our precious wedding memories…and thank you so much again Clark!!

Wonderful Experience!

Enduring Promises connected us with David Blow, who then officiated our wedding on June 4th, 2022. We are very happy with the experience we had with both Enduring Promises and David. David was extremely helpful and responsive during the entire process of planning the ceremony through the online Enduring Promises console (which was very easy to use and amazing!). He coached and supported us every step of the way. He also sent us reminders and encouraging messages leading up to the wedding day.

We did a rehearsal with David a couple days before our wedding. It was our first time meeting him in person and we were so pleased with how friendly and funny he was. He got along great with everyone! During the rehearsal David really put our minds at ease and got us more excited about the big day! He made us feel more comfortable and gave us pointers to better our ceremony.

Our wedding ceremony was just perfect. Seeing David’s familiar face on the day helped to calm our nerves. He brought a lot of life to the ceremony and our guests commented on how great he was too. He was quick to respond to unpredictable moments (like when the groom tried to kiss the bride too early) making the ceremony light and fun.

We highly recommend David and can’t picture our wedding day without him in it.

Thank you David and Enduring Promises!

Amber Shurr – Absolutely Phenomenal

My husband and I got married on October 30th of this year – having had a gothic/Halloween themed wedding it was very important for us to find someone open-minded, fun, and exciting! Enduring Promises made this so very easy – I filled out and application with what I was looking for and was contacted almost immediately being paired with Amber. After our first meeting, there was absolutely no question that Amber was the most perfect fit for us. Amber was SO EXCITED to be apart of our day and to be able to dress up for our theme. She was so helpful, calming, reassuring and absolutely the sweetest soul on this earth! The ceremony was so beautiful, and Amber made it PERFECT. I will recommend her to absolutely anyone I know – and if you are planning any themed wedding, Amber is your gal!!!! Thank you so much, Amber!!!

Beyond grateful to work with Amber

From the onset of meeting Amber via zoom we knew she would be perfect for our ceremony and of course she was!!

The online platform to customize our ceremony was so easy to use and helpful.

Amber brought an incredible presence to our ceremony with her friendly and bubbly personality. We received so many compliments from our guest specifically saying how amazing she was.

We are so grateful to work with Enduring Promises, especially Amber. Would highly recommend!!!

From the moment we met with Allen from Enduring Promises we knew our ceremony was going to be really special. My husband and I wanted it to reflect both our backgrounds and Allen walked us through every step of the way making beautiful suggestions to help us envision our day. He put our minds at ease and alleviated our wedding getters with his calm inviting tone and the feeling of comfort he brings when he walks into a room. He worked with our bridal party during the rehearsal to make sure everyone felt heard and prepared. Allen gives you the feeling of home which made us feel relaxed and enjoy our special day with family and friends. Thank you, Allen for making our dream wedding reality, it’s truly a day we will never forget! We would without a doubt recommend Allen and Enduring Promises, amazing job!

My husband and I come from different religious backgrounds and prior to Belma, we’d had trouble finding a wedding officiant that was aligned with our values as a couple. We’d been connected with 5 others who didn’t work for us for various reasons until we met Belma less than a week to our wedding.

Within a few hours of being connected to her, Belma set up a check in call to understand our expectations and see if there was mutual alignment for us to proceed with her. She patiently listened to us, answered our questions, explained next steps in detail and provided her contact information for us to reach out if we had subsequent questions. Despite setting out an hour to talk to us on short notice, she did not put us under any pressure to go with her for her ceremony.

As soon as we decided to go with Enduring Promises, we were provided access to the nimblest console, which allowed us to craft every aspect of our ceremony and provided examples of text and anecdotes that other couples had used in the past. Because of their console, we were able to customize every element of our ceremony and include our friends and family in different aspects.

Belma then reviewed our entries in detail multiple times and made suggestions to us to help make transitions more fluid and to allow for a more inclusive session. She also had fun suggestions such as having our friends and family cheer as the groom walked down the aisle, which was such a beautiful touch.

She sent a super kind message on the morning of our wedding, arrived promptly (as usual), encouraged us, and carefully explained each step in the ceremony to members of our bridal train who had different roles to play.

The icing on the cake was the calm and kind way in which she officiated our ceremony and made our audience feel so welcome. She also kept whispering words of encouragement to both of us during emotional parts of the ceremony such as the vow and ring exchanges.

Our guests could not stop complimenting her afterwards and we felt so at peace starting our marriage under her guidance.

Belma, you are truly one of a kind; God bless you abundantly.

I contacted Enduring Promises with very limited time to hire an officiant. They found us an officiant available on our wedding date & got the booking confirmed the same day I contacted them. It was easy breezy, and I was matched up with Brianne who was the sweetest! Brianne is so personable and put me at ease right away. I really enjoyed putting our ceremony together with her and on the day of, she was just as she was on the phone, calm, cool and collected. She arrived early and didn’t make us feel rushed at all. Brianne, thank you so much for Marrying Nik and me. We won’t forget you.

AMAZING! From the first moment we selected Enduring Promises, we knew we were in the right place for our special day. Our Officiant’s name was Josh Cassell. We did everything perfectly and beyond. From the moment he arrived he was extremely well organized, and he helped a lot with the logistics of the wedding. He helped reduce the stress and made my day more enjoyable for us as well as our guests. The ceremony console (the website) is amazing. It helped us imagine the whole wedding and had excellent suggestions of parts we didn’t even know we wanted (in our case the sand ceremony at the end of the wedding) Josh’s voice and perfect tone as well as everything he said made the wedding a dream come true. Thank you, Enduring Promises, and Thank you Josh for being part of the most important day of my life. I totally recommend you! Five stars (It’s a shame I cannot give you 10!)

We had a great experience with Enduring Promises and our officiant Richard Bristow. From the instant that we met Richard, we felt comfortable and excited to work with him. Richard understood our ceremony vision perfectly (lighthearted with some humour). He made an effort to get to know us and gave us helpful feedback on our ceremony outline. We received very positive feedback from our guests who attended the ceremony. The Enduring Promises website was user-friendly and included many suggested passages to choose from. It was easy to create a custom ceremony outline based on our vision. The Enduring Promises company was responsive whenever we had questions. We would definitely recommend their services.

A Magical Wedding Celebration

Authored by: Annette Marchant

Through the eyes of a child, the world is a magical place.

We’re read “fairy tales” from the time we’re very little, not always understanding them. But, imaginative stories capture our minds and cause us to create our own fantastic stories, where we have imaginary friends, believe that we can fly with homemade wings, or that our bikes are more than just that—you remember well, don’t you? 

From Cinderella and Snow White to The Chronicles of Narnia where children jump from world to world through an ordinary wardrobe, our imaginations lead us to believe that life as Kings and Queens is possible. 

But, we grow up! And please know, that’s not a bad thing.

The ‘everyday’ of life captures our minds. The stability of a good job, a home, a car, and a relationship wrapped in the joys of life becomes important. We’re in the midst of creating a kingdom where we are Kings and Queens. 

And you—especially deserve to be the King or Queen on your wedding day!

There’s a fancy word for your imagination when it comes to planning your wedding…

Bespoke.

Try it on. It feels good right?

You might be picturing a tailor-made suit, but really bespoke means made-to-order—just for you, not mass produced, not samesies, or done a thousand times over. 

It also means dipping into the imagination that might be a little dusty and getting creative (and fun) in your planning. 

And can we let you in on a little secret? In the Enduring Promises Wedding world, imagination is a good thing—you’ll be celebrated for it!

You get to capture the imaginations of all your guests, telling your story of love, arriving on your special day (like Cinderella) in a horse-drawn carriage, alighting to meet your greatest love, to entwine your lives.

Others have different dreams and creativity, loving the spooky and terrible side of fun! Pumpkins, bats, and a world of fantastic creatures, wizards, and witches. We’ll wear the fangs and cape to officiate—we promise! 

Some like to make noise on special occasions—did you know that motorcycles add incredible excitement to the atmosphere of an already special day?

Or maybe, a beach wedding is in your dreams—*ahem*, more precisely—getting married IN the water, we’re more than happy to abandon our shoes and roll up our pant legs (to the knees) in order to oblige. 

Helicopters and “I do’s” on the top of a mountain go surprisingly well together!

Start imagining—maybe you have children you’d like to involve in the wedding—did you know you could include them in the vows? 

Maybe you can’t imagine getting married without your fur baby—they can stand up with you and they look super cute in photos!

There’s magic about to be created because you still believe in dreams!

At Enduring Promises we work hard to see wedding dreams come true—there’s nothing quite like watching someone create the magic they envision. We’d like to come alongside like your Fairy Godmother!

Our award-winning Officiants love what they do, they’re happy to support and participate in your wedding day, just as you envisioned and dreamed. You have the power to create magic—and Enduring Promises will help (with a little touch of our wand 😉).
