Why Choose Enduring Promises?

What couples say about Chad…

Chad was so fantastic to work with; I would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone! He made planning so easy.

The online console that Enduring Promises has made the process of planning our ceremony so simple–if it wasn’t for Chad and the console I wouldn’t have known where to start.

Chad is very patient and kind, and although I was not nervous the day of our wedding, I know if I was he would have been a very calming and reassuring presence. He made the ceremony run seamlessly–without a rehearsal!

Thank you Chad!

Danielle and Brian

Chad was great to work with, very flexible and patient. We enjoyed his calm disposition and his light hearted humour.

The Enduring Promises website was really easy to use and it allowed us to build our ceremony in our own time. Our sincerest thanks to the team!

Monika and Jonathan

Chad was the best! He was easy going and open to our casual/ non-denominational style ceremony we wanted. We also asked very last minute for him to be at our rehearsal and he was there without issue.

The wedding planner web interface that we used was awesome! It was easy to use and allowed us to organize our ceremony the way we wanted without stress. There were a lot of suggestions and style options to choose from. Chad guided us through how to use the interface thoroughly.
