Before using Provenance, we didn’t even know where to begin planning our ceremony. We knew the vague arc of ceremonies from friends’ weddings, but didn’t know what important components we should consider. Your tool made it so easy to walk through ideas and thoughtfully design a ceremony that represents us, our backgrounds, and our commitment to our future.

The Provenance ceremony builder tool was a God-send. It helped the couple and I get started and get organized, reminded me to ask about tons of things I would have forgotten, and provided tons of useful content that we incorporated. We used it for everything from the overall structure, to some of the readings, to the exact language of the declaration of intent.

Provenance made it so easy to customize our wedding ceremony with our officiant. We were so thrilled with how everything came together and how easy the portal was to collaborate on ideas with each other and our officiant. I would highly recommend for anyone looking to go the nontraditional route with their ceremony or if you are looking to add something unique and special to your wedding day!

We come from different religious backgrounds and it felt like most offerings were too religion-focused and not representative of who we are. Your guidance allowed us the flexibility to incorporate different values and traditions into our ceremony for an end result that was truly meaningful because it felt like our own.

I feel so lucky that we found Provenance! It was the perfect way to help us jump into building our ceremony and write our vows. I think I would have procrastinated a LOT more if I didn't have their wonderful website to help guide our thinking.
Emmah & Will | Bride & Groom | July 2023
This app was incredibly helpful. Both myself and my husband liked being able to edit our vows and answer some questions to give us a starting point to express our love for one another. My officiant liked the ceremony tool. This program helped us create the most unique script for our perfect day!
NiKi B | Bride | June 2023
My husband and I used Provenance to help guide the content of our wedding ceremony and loved how easy it was to use. We generally knew what we wanted to say, but the tools and prompts in Provenance turned our ideas and intentions into beautiful language that flowed and engaged everyone at our ceremony. We couldn't recommend it more if you feel stuck knowing what to say during your wedding!
Meg | Bride | Aug 2023
While I'm an incredibly extroverted person, giving speeches has never been my thing, so when I was asked to give a toast at a 200-person wedding, I went to Provenance for help [...] I think it went pretty well judging by the two moms who came up to me after asking if I'd meet their daughters.
Nelson E | Groomsman | Sept 2022
Provenance provided a service of excellence that took my voice and polished the vision to personalized perfection. I stood before my soon-to-be husband effortlessly expressing my heart. Our officiant said it was an act to follow...except we both utilized Provenance - it was terrific!
Tamara C | Bride | Apr 2023
[From WSJ Article] Left to her own devices, Ms. Hood said her vows would have sounded as though they had been written by a second-grader: 'Will you marry me? Check yes or no.' Reading what Provenance came up with, she thought, 'Wow, I would have never worded it this way and it sounds so thoughtful—and the way that I actually feel.’
Allison & Jeff | Bride & Groom | April 2023
Provenance made planning our ceremony a breeze! The questions prompted us to remember key moments in our relationship as well as consider the logistic pieces of a ceremony (e.g. length, housekeeping reminders to be said at the beginning of the ceremony, etc.). Pro-tip: answer the ceremony questions separately and then read your responses to one another--this ended up being such an fun and intimate exercise for my partner and I--definitely not what we expected but 100% appreciate (and needed) this guidance!
Alyssa C | Bride | July 2023
With Provenance’s help, my (now-) wife and I didn’t have to start from scratch with our officiant. The platform provided us with a variety of options that helped us build a ceremony that was uniquely designed for us. And it paid off. The day and our ceremony was perfect in every way.
Charlie G | Groom | June 2022
I really wanted to get married at the park where my parents got married, but it wasn’t somewhere we could have our full ceremony. So we eloped! I wore a dress that had part of my mom's wedding dress in it and I asked my childhood best friend who also knew my family - to be our officiant. We used Provenance to help write the ceremony script in order to keep it short and incorporate some of the rituals that were important to us. It ended up being such a great ceremony!
Daniela F | Bride | Sept 2022
Provenance made planning our ceremony simple and easy! I also appreciated the chance to look through readings and rituals others had used for inspiration!
Stephanie C | Bride | Mar 2023
Before learning about Provenance, I sent templates for my clients to get started writing their ceremonies. Now, I can use Provenance's Ceremony Builder to help clients personalize their ceremony scripts and save tons of time and effort. It's an amazing service to have in my back pocket as a huge value-add when couples work with me as their planner
Lindsey K | Wedding Planner | Wildflower Events
So glad to have found Provenance before our wedding! It made planning a ceremony so easy. We had a family member officiate who had never done so before and it made our ceremony sound professional and personal. We had no idea where to start writing a ceremony but this made it a piece of cake and were able to personalize the whole thing while getting ideas, recommendations, and good flow!
Alyssa P | Bride | May 2023
The whole experience - from the ceremony to the vows to the wedding planner portal - has a lot of heart. Other sites want to copy/paste templates, and this is the first time I have something I’m excited to share with my clients to really help them personalize their ceremony, vows, and toasts.
Lorie L | Wedding Planner | H&L Lovely Creations
We were completely lost when looking for a ceremony script. I loved all the options from Provenance, though still customizable! Our ceremony was beautiful and we received many compliments on it.
Sorrell B | Groom | Apr 2023
Working with Sarah was wildly helpful! She made great tactical suggestions - like where to pause, where to be more conversational, where to speed up and where to slow down. Most importantly she encouraged me to stay true to myself. I felt like my delivery improved 10x after our session.
Rachel Z | Maid of Honor | Feb 2023
Provenance helped us to create a ceremony that reflected us as a couple. Having the ability to edit every detail helped us customize our wedding experience. My officiant appreciated it tremendously as well.
Taylor E | Bride | July 2023
My husband and I are not religious and needed guidance on how to perform the ceremony without religion involved. This site has religious guidance too but is a great source for the non-traditional! Our officiant, my husband's brother, was able to utilize the site's tools to write the script while seeing our notes and readings we wanted to have involved. My sister who was my MOH also used the site to give her tips on writing her speech for the reception. Worth it!
Olivia S | Bride | Aug 2023
[From WSJ Article] Sarah especially liked the fact that you could cross-check your partner’s vows to make sure you were on the same page, tone-wise. 'You don’t want to put too many jokes in there if your partner is being serious and sentimental,' she said. For his part, Kyle was just glad to have his time back. 'I would have had to Google ‘how to write your vows’ and read through, you know, nine articles.'
Kyle & Sarah | Groom & Bride | April 2023
Literally amazing! My husband and I had no clue what we were doing when it came to our vows or ceremony. With Provenance everything was a breeze! Thank you!
Lexx B | Bride | Aug 2023
If it wasn’t for provenance I wouldn’t have had any vows... The vows were perfect!
