Brett and I would like to take the opportunity to thank you again for everything you did for us for our wedding. We were so happy with how everything went with the ceremony and having you as our officiant was perfect for us. Your calm and confident demeanor was exactly what we wanted and needed in an officiant. We heard from many many people that our officiant was great! Nothing but great compliments to you. We cannot thank you enough.
Julia and Brett

We had a truly wonderful experience with Enduring Promises. Our officiant Vince was great. He was very helpful and diligently answered all our questions surrounding the ceremony and elements we should consider including. Vince also made a special effort to check in with us periodically and offer his help. He truly made our rehearsal and ceremony stress-free. We chose enduring promises because you can customize your ceremony to make sure it is exactly what you want. The online tool they gave us was awesome. We would recommend enduring promises to anyone who is planning their wedding especially for couples who want and unique ceremony. Thanks, Enduring Promises for making our ceremony amazing!

I was lucky enough to have Vince perform our ceremony this past Thursday, July 19th, 2018. He was professional and kind, and an absolute hit with our guests. The website for Enduring Promises was so comprehensive and helpful for designing a breakdown of our ceremony I was completely blown away by the organization. I wouldn’t recommend anyone else. Definitely worthwhile on all sides to go with this exceptional group of skilled professionals.
