…a little bit about me.
I am a licensed wedding officiant in the Province of Ontario and have been officiating weddings since 2009. It would be my pleasure and honour to be a part of your special day. I would love to help you create a moment that would last a lifetime!
I was born and raised in Kitchener/Waterloo. I moved to British Columbia for school and lived there for 4 years. Since then, I returned to Ontario and have lived in Arthur, Hamilton, K-W, and now Woodstock.
I met the love of my life while I was in school in BC. We are about to celebrate our 20 year anniversary this coming October. I have 3 children, one of which is graduating grade 12 and the other two are 13 and 12 years old.
My Life Experiences
For the past 20 years, I have been involved in 5 community churches serving 16 of those years as a youth worker providing mentoring, counseling, and life and spiritual care. Over the past 4 years, my focus shifted to adults and seniors while still serving people through the same means. I have traveled extensively throughout the world in places such as Mexico, Romania, Hungry, Ukraine, and Africa providing food nutrition, leadership development, and life and spiritual care.
Interest & Passion
When I’m not spending time with my wife and kids, you can find me exploring very unique coffee shops and restaurants throughout Southern Ontario. Most Tuesday evenings, I’m with friends or family enjoying the latest movie that is currently playing. I love most sports and spend the end of the day soaking in my hot tub!
What couples are saying
Rob was awesome. When we were planning the ceremony, he gave us all the important information and a few important choices were left to us. We never felt like we were ‘boxed in’ to a style of wedding. The ceremony itself was beautiful - Rob is an enthusiastic and warm speaker who adds to the joy of the moment. I would only recommend Rob if you’re looking to smile and cry and have a generally memorable moment at the altar.

We were lucky to have Rob as our officiant for our wedding. He was so helpful in answering our many questions. Rob was kind, empathetic and super detail-oriented in the planning process and our ceremony was perfect! Thank you again!.

We have nothing but spectacular things about Enduring Promises, specifically our officiant, Rob Kropf. Rob was truly above and beyond what we hoped for. Rob met with us for a video conference to hear our story, and ask us what our vision is for our big day. We explained to Rob the types of things we were looking for and the overall vibe for our ceremony. Rob listened diligently to the style we were wanting and executed it perfectly. Rob is warm, approachable, funny, sentimental, and well-spoken. The platform Enduring Promises uses makes creating your ceremony easy and personalized. Each component from readings to affirmations allows you to choose between a variety of pre-written messages, all of which you can customize even more. As we approached the wedding, Rob stayed in touch with us and set up another call shortly before the wedding. We went over final details and we knew we were in great hands with Rob. Rob arrived at our rehearsal dinner early to get a feel for the venue in order to be prepared for tomorrow's big day. He was fantastic at the rehearsal, listening to our ideas, and also providing his own, as the professional he was. It was the perfect balance between listening to our vision and Rob providing his professional insight to things we didn't think about (how to stand, poses, transfer of the rings, signing, etc.) Rob is extremely knowledgeable and makes all aspects from the planning to the wedding day run smoothly and seamless. The week approaching the wedding, we both sent Rob our vows and Rob took on the job of printing them out for us (in an easy way for us to read) and brought them to the ceremony. The wedding went smoothly and Rob was well prepared for all aspects. Rob also sent all paperwork to the necessary for us. It was nice to have that weight lifted off our shoulders as we left for our honeymoon. Thank you Rob, from the bottom of our hearts, for all that you did for us and contributing to making our day perfect!

Robert Kropt officiated our wedding and the amount of compliments we recieved was unmatched. He went out of his way to make everything perfect. From the planning process, to the rehearsal right up until the big day. I asked for him to be open and honest about his opinion on the ceremony and he went above and beyond to make it perfect. Everything wen so smoothly and our wedding day felt like I fairytale. Rob was exactly what we hoped for! I would definitely recommend this entire company to everyone that needs them!
