Blair Mercer was a fantastic officiant. Easy to work with and a wonderful person. He went above and beyond for our ceremony.
The console was a breeze to use and we loved how personalized it was. It made it simple to plan our perfect ceremony.
Enduring Promises was invaluable to us for our wedding and we would recommend them to anyone.
Sarah and Brock
We were very happy with Blair as our officiant! As soon as we had our first meeting, he made us feel very comfortable. The website was very easy to use, and made our ceremony planning a breeze.
Blair was very early and prepared the day of the wedding, and the ceremony could not have gone better. We also loved that he printed off our vows to keep, and the letter we recieved from him was very special and heartfelt. Thank you again Blair for making our day perfect!

We had Blair Mercer as our officiant for our last minute elopement wedding. He was amazing! He ensured that both my husbands and i's needs and wants were met. He connected with us through email and over FaceTime, allowing us to have very open communication for how we wanted our big day. Blair gave us several reading options to use for our elopement (as we chose a micro-ceremony) and we chose based on which suited us, we were also allowed to fix or add anything we wanted so that it was more tailored to our commitment to each other. The day of, Blair was waiting for us at our elopement spot. He was very professional and spoke from the heart during the ceremony, and when my husband and I went to read our vows, Blair stepped aside to allow a more intimate moment for this, which we really appreciated. Overall, our experience with Blair and Enduring Promises allowed our elopement dream to come to. They are very easy to work with and very fast at replying to emails which I appreciated. Cannot recommend them enough.
