From the moment we met Rinette, she was amazing. She was incredibly helpful in helping us figure out our ceremony. We had a 19 month old at the time of our wedding and during our meet and greet, she offered the idea of including her into the ceremony and suggested different ways to do it. She was patient and really cared about how to make it our own. It was the most memorable and beautiful ceremony we could have ever imagined.read more

Jim Emerson did a wonderful job with our wedding! During the stress of all the wedding there were times it made it seem a bit more stressful, but come the day of the ceremony it all fell together and was so worthwhile! I remember meeting him the first time and talking about the words and the ceremony not just being a few words, but also what a wedding is and means. Also wanting to make the ceremony personal that it portrays us the couple! Which I must say, we've received several compliments about the ceremony, and the common wording used was that the ceremony was "personal" and was a "reflection of us". Well done Jim! 🙂 The online ceremony console is nice, but could definitely have some enhancements made for the text areas. Such as HTML formatting menus for each section. Being able to re-order the sections, etc. With that said - they have templates which help you structure your the ceremony the way you want in order to make it more personal. Working with Enduring Promises had a few minor hick-ups for some items, but it was also misunderstanding(perhaps mostly my fault) - but the experience working with them was pretty seamless, easy and intuitive. I rated 5 stars because I work in a business process job role - and every company has opportunities to improve and make the experience that much better for the next person - but overall, Jim and Enduring promises did exactly what we wanted, and what compliments from our guests reflects the 5 stars best! 🙂read more

Dear Jim and Enduring Promises, You were absolutely amazing! Until we met with you for the first time to go through our ceremony steps, we had no idea how important it was to have your guidance. In our minds, we were going to repeat some words, and would be done with our ceremony.... However, you made us realize that there are so many tiny seconds of important moments throughout our ceremony!! We actually started to panic about it once we realized it's one of the most important parts of our wedding, and we could not have done it without you. You made it so easy and efficient. You gave us so many amazing suggestions, and you were so prompt at responding to our online correspondence. You even researched about our cultural backgrounds and came up with recommendations! That is the perfect example of GOING BEYOND! Jim you were perfectly professional and restrict at the same time during our rehearsal. People were too excited and were not listening, however, you made sure everyone knew what they were supposed to do, and because of that our ceremony was PERFECT! It really went perfectly. So thank you thank you thank you so much!! We were extremely glad that we chose your services and we highly recommend you to anyone we know! read more

I don't even know where to begin with how extremely happy my husband and i were with Jim Emersons extreme attention to detail. He gave us some of the most memorable ideas for our wedding that made our day extra special. He is a master at helping you design a ceremony that is nothing less than perfect and second to none at making sure your stance, dress, bouquet and every single detail is in the perfect spot to get the best pictures. He also has the best sense of humour and truly made our day become the best wedding we could of asked for. Thank you so much!read more

Jim provided my husband and I with so many neat ideas and words of wisdom from the hundreds (possibly thousands) of weddings that he has officiated. He made our day absolutely seamless and helped with every aspect of planning (when we asked). He made our guests laugh, cry and be an integral part of our ceremony. The Enduring Promises console is so easy to use and collaborative with your officiant. It allows for creativity while provided solid, tried and true examples if you are stumped. The pricing is competitive as well but the service that Jim and Enduring Promises provide is priceless if you ask us! 5+++++ Thanks Jim!read more

We recently got married and Jim Emerson officiated for us. He was amazing from start to finish. I had met him at the Wedding Show in Ottawa and he was very nice and answered all of my questions. One thing that he said has stuck with me, "your wedding is personal, and it should reflect the love you two have for one another in specific and personal ways. The little details will show through". He was right! Enduring Promises allows you to create your own wedding ceremony from start to finish. They have an online platform that gives suggestions and allows you to edit. We really made the ceremony ours. Jim was with us throughout and let us know when something wouldn't work where it was and suggested an alternative. He made the ceremony flow wonderfully and even suggested the people doing readings have them printed on a photo (way better looking for pictures for sure!!). Our ceremony was perfect and a huge part of that was Jim.read more

We were very well accommodated especially because our event was rather last minute. Jim was super helpful and went the extra mile to make sure that our vows resonated with us. He and his wife were both warm and welcoming to us and our friends as well. It was a beautiful day and a great experience and would definitely recommend him.read more

Our officiant was Jim Emerson. He was honestly so great. He was humorous but also knew when to be serious in order to make sure things were great on our wedding day. He knew how to conduct the ceremony for great photo opportunities, and gave us the flexibility to make the ceremony our own. He was very helpful along the way to give us suggestions as well. One thing about enduring is that you have to write your own ceremony, which at first seemed like a lot of work and just one more thing to do, but it turned out to be a great experience and really made our ceremony feel like our own. Thanks a lot!read more

Jim is an amazing officiant! We needed to book a new officiant 1 month before our wedding and he was there for us every step of the way. Jim helped us come up with ideas to create our own unique ceremony, and with the aid of the Enduring Promises website, we were able to write out exactly how we wanted our ceremony to go. Jim's sense of humour kept an easy flow and gave lighthearted laughs throughout. Not your typical boring wedding. We would definitely recommend Jim and Enduring Promises to anyone. To Jim we are forever grateful. Much love to you and yours, Jon & Jenread more

Jim was an excellent Officiant! We were blown away by his passion during our first meeting with him. He not only gave us amazing ideas for our ceremony but for our whole wedding! You can tell he genuinely cares about each wedding. Jim was firm and helpful with everyone in our wedding party, in order to make our ceremony perfect! The online ceremony console was excellent for creating our ceremony. It allowed us to pick every word that was said at our ceremony, so personal! We could also reach Jim at anytime and he was extremely responsive and quick at getting back to us! Enduring Promises is a great company and they have a great system. The only thing that would have made our experience better would have to be with the rehearsal. Unfortunately, we did not pay to have this done with Jim and I think it would have been very beneficial, however the price is a little much for one hour. (Everywhere charges around the same).read more
