We loved working with Chase! He made the entire wedding process on finding and working with an officiant so easy. He was very responsive with emails and provided us step by step help throughout the entire process on what needed to be done. He was very open on what kind of ceremony we wanted and helped us put together our wedding ceremony text. He kept us calm throughout the rehearsal and ceremony. Our friends and family even complimented on what an amazing job he did! We couldn't have asked for a more amazing job from Chase! Thank you!

My wife and I found Chase Waits on a Monday for a wedding we were having that Friday. Chase was extremely accommodating on a short schedule and he put us at ease immediately knowing we had found the perfect officiant. Our families couldn't stop raving about his ceremony and how beautiful it was. Even though we had to brave a little rain, he was always in great spirits. He is the kind of person that you feel like you've known for a long time because he makes you feel so at ease. I highly recommend his services for your wedding!

We had the pleasure of having Steven Fitzpatrick as our wedding officiant for our ceremony that took place a few weekends ago. Steven was incredibly patient with my husband and I through our always problematic tendency to procrastinate on everything, and worked with us to create a ceremony that we're so proud of, and that got countless compliments after it took place. Steven helped give us ideas when we needed help with the flow of the ceremony script up until the very last minute, and demonstrated spectacular talent by making our smorgasbord of ideas flow together effortlessly with a theme that was perfect for us. He allowed us to have complete control of how our ceremony played out, with our own written vows yet with still a few traditional aspects. He had everyone in the audience laughing and ugly-crying with us, and helped make our day so very special and memorable. He then provided us with all the knowledge and help we needed in order to change my name successfully, and always made himself available to answer any questions we had. We honestly cannot say enough good things about Steven. We truly had an incredible experience with him as our officiant, and we would absolutely recommend his service to anyone else looking for an incredibly patient, flexible, and talented officiant at a reasonable price.

Chase was outstanding. We could not ask for anything better from an officiant. From our first meeting to the day of the wedding, he was very calming and professional. He worked with us on creating a custom ceremony, and accommodated a reading from one of our family members. He made himself available for our rehearsal and responded to all of our emails, even when we were both emailing at the same time!

Thank you Chase for helping make our day wonderful!

We loved working with Chase! He had many different text options that we used to help us create our own ceremony. He was open to any type of ceremony we wanted and reviewed our draft once we had put together something we liked. He was also incredibly helpful in that he sent us emails when things needed to be done such as getting our marriage license and information on how to change my name after we were married (complete with things we needed to bring/fill our before and links to websites for the probate court, SSA name change application etc). Chase was extremely knowledgeable about wedding ceremonies, which was very calming during the rehearsal, just before, and during ceremony.

This was my first wedding and I was very nervous about who we would get to officiate and direct our vows. I am not particularly religious so when it came time to pick someone out I really was not particularly thrilled about getting a man of the cloth but I also didn't mind some mention of faith either. My fiance looked a good bit on various sites and finally found Chase.

We decided to set up a meeting with Chase at a local coffee house. Chase was there when we got there and fully prepared. Most important, to me anyways, was that he seemed very relaxed and calm and it really served to calm my nerves then, so I knew it would help at our wedding (which I wasn't nervous about but thought perhaps on the big day I might be). After a nice discussion about what we preferred to have Chase presented us with a good bit of documentation to help us decide upon our ultimate vows. Our meeting lasted about a half hour and went really well. We had planned to meet another officiant afterwards but we didn't even get to the car from leaving the coffee shop before we had decided to go ahead and retain Chase.

Upon arriving home I immediately Paypal'ed Chase the money (another thing I like about Chase is the fact that he's modern and not only knows what Paypal is but actually accepts it!!) and we got everything set up. We then met with him again a bit closer to the wedding and showed him what we had selected as our vows. We chose a little of this and a little of that.

On our wedding day Chase arrived early and was a calming presence in a sea of sorta craziness. I really wasn't nervous a lot but I was a little and Chase quietly explained everything about how it would all go and made me feel 100% comfortable about what we were doing so that I wouldn't mess up our big day. My groomsmen all really liked Chase as well. Our ceremony went off without a hitch thanks to Chase!

My husband and I are not your average bride and groom. We wanted a very small intimate outdoor winter wedding. There were only 5 people invited. And we wanted to do the ceremony in the Hocking Hills area, which Chase was more than willing to travel to and hike a half mile in the snow to the ceremony you site! Good luck finding someone even local to that area who would do that! We'd only planned for a month and a half and wanted our wedding to be "on the fly", stress free and very relaxed. We found Chase who came highly recommended. He curbed our ceremony to really speak to us and we added a few bits and pieces ourselves. He was soo flexible and accommodating even down to THE day...when we decided last minute the weather was too bad to travel the distance to HH. Chase found us a last minute local photographer an hour and a half before the ceremony, who was fabulous! We had the ceremony at a local metro park and yes made our 5 guests and Chase walk through 6 inches of snow to the ceremony site. He was great and did everything he could to make our day very memerable. We could not have asked for anything more on our awesome snowy wedding day! And it was soo much fun! So if you are like us and want a unique outdoor wedding but feel you'd have a hard time finding an officiant to "go the distance" with you...Chase is the guy! Thanks Again Chase!

We were very fortunate to find Chase through our wedding vendor. Chase was excellent to work with throughout the wedding process. He was very helpful in creating our personalized ceremony by providing numerous examples. He returns emails in a timely manner. We received numerous compliments regarding our ceremony. Chase’s delivery of the ceremony was fantastic. Chase provided a wealth of helpful information throughout the entire wedding process. We would highly recommend him as a wedding officiant.

We had the pleasure of having Chase Waits as our officiant for our December wedding. We met with him just once before but that was all we needed. He sent us a 30 page document with sample weddings and we could customize our ceremony with any of the sample or our own pieces. We ended up using one of his samples including the vows. My dad came up to me after the wedding and told me we had the best vows he had ever heard. The grooms family was brought to tears when Chase included a moment of silence for the Groom's father who had passed. He made the ceremony feel special without the use of any religion. He made us feel at ease and took care of the marriage certificate. He must have sent it in right away to be filled because we were able to get certified copies just two weeks after the wedding.

I would recommend him to any friends and family needing an officiant.
