I want to help you cherish the moment you choose to say “I do.”

For more than 15 years I’ve had the privilege of officiating many beautiful weddings.

It is my honour to guide couples through the development of meaningful, personal and purposeful ceremonies.

My goal is to make the ceremony smooth and memorable — a moment you’ll treasure for a lifetime.


Hello, I’m Eric Friesen.

I have been a pastor for more than 15 years, walking alongside couples as they build a life together. I am now a licensed officiant for the province of Manitoba.

While I grew up on a farm, I’ve lived in and around Winnipeg for most of my adult life with a bit of time spent in Texas in between.

Over the years of officiating weddings, I noticed that what is meant to be the most significant and memorable day in the life of a couple is often the most stressful one.

I started Marry Me in 2016 to make the wedding day a memory to cherish for couples like you.

I want to help you prepare for a wedding — and marriage — you’ll love.

My goal is to make the process smooth and memorable for you, as well as give you some tools for a promising start.

I’m a Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) certified practitioner and also help leaders of nonprofits, churches and businesses discover a purposeful future.

I love a good book, a strong cup of coffee (with honey and no cream) and a stimulating conversation. My four children would describe my jokes as ‘dad humour,’ but I like to think a little laughter goes a long way in building relationships.

If you ask me, the perfect wedding playlist is a good mix of U2, Eric Church and ….[insert your favourite band name here].

And while I’ve been a city slicker for a long time, I’m always a farmer at heart.
