Everything went so smoothly during our wedding ceremony, and we have Chase to thank for that! He was great to work with during the entire process from the first consultation to the wedding day. I emailed Chase after seeing all of the wonderful reviews online, and we were so lucky that he was available on our wedding date. The reviews were spot on...Chase is the best! We didn't even need to meet with any other officiants. One meeting had me convinced that Chase would help us put together a beautiful, memorable ceremony and that is exactly what we experienced on our wedding day. Everything was perfect. I highly recommend Columbus Wedding Officiants to other couples!!!

Chase officiated our wedding on July 11, 2014. We heard about Chase from our wedding coordinator. I emailed him, he responded very fast and sent us some samples of his ceremonies. He let us know that we could change anything that we wanted too and I was glad he let us have a very big say in it. We did not get to meet with him before the wedding due to us living out of town but just talking through email, we felt very comfortable with him. Chase came to our rehearsal and it went so much smoother than other rehearsals that I had been to in the past. He made it so easy!! The wedding went perfectly and we are so glad we chose Chase. We HIGHLY recommend Chase to have for your special day!!

Chase Waits was the perfect wedding officiant! He was friendly, responsive, and informative. He relieved a lot of stress during the wedding planning, which was greatly appreciated. He will work with you if you have particular readings you would like or he has sample ceremonies that are beautiful and you do not have to do anything at all. He was friendly, calm, and amazing to work with! He also provided information on obtaining a marriage license and changing your name. I cannot say enough good things about Chase - we could not be happier!

Quite simply, Chase was wonderful. My husband and I are not religious, and did not want to have a ceremony that had religious involvement. But, neither of us have had any experience with a secular wedding and were worried about finding an officiant. Well, all of our worries disappeared after meeting with Chase. We had an informal meeting at Starbucks about a year before our wedding, where he showed us sample ceremonies and answered all of our questions. Chase was the only officiant with whom we met, and we booked him about 2 hours after our meeting. He made us feel really comfortable, despite the fact that we were totally overwhelmed with wedding planning, and he was an absolute perfect fit.

For those non-religious people out there worried about offending religious family members... don't! He was very flexible with us and tailored a ceremony perfectly to what we wanted. There was no religious verbiage, yet afterwards even our devout family members were commenting on how wonderful and personal the ceremony was.

Finally, the "boring" details. Chase was extremely responsive, and really quick about doing everything that we needed. He sent a reminder ahead of time about applying for a marriage license, he sent out information about name change immediately after the wedding, and he filed our marriage license with our county clerk very promptly. I returned from my honeymoon about 10 days after the wedding, and everything was ready to go for me to begin my name change process.

I can't recommend Chase enough for a wonderful, personal wedding ceremony. Although I haven't met with any others, I would say that Chase Waits is the best officiant around!

Chase was such a pleasure to work with. He served as officiant of my husband and I's wedding two weeks ago, and did a phenomenal job. Chase was very prompt when it came to responding to emails, and communicating. He was a huge help at the rehearsal dinner and very accommodating to any needs or wants that we had. He was the same when it came to preparing the ceremony itself. I would recommend Chase to anyone looking for a wonderful officiant in the Columbus area.

We started our search for wedding officiants a little more than a year before our wedding and we came across the website for Columbus Wedding Officiants. We read through their website and all of the great reviews and decided to reach out to Chase Waits. He responded that very same day and we setup our first meeting with him. My husband and I really had no idea as to what wording we wanted to use for the ceremony, and when we met with Chase for the first time he provided us with a ton of sample ceremonies and readings to go through. This was so helpful for us and made writing our ceremony a non-stressful process. Even though we booked him so far in advance he was very responsive throughout the entire process and answered all questions that we had for him. A little over a month before the wedding he sent us all the information on how to obtain our marriage license which made the process of obtaining our license very seamless and easy. We had a rehearsal with him and he kept everything organized and everyone calm and also gave some great pointers for the ceremony. He did a great job with the ceremony and a day after the wedding he already emailed me giving me all the information on how to change my last name. If you are looking for a wedding officiant that you can count on I would highly recommend Chase Waits! He was easy going, professional, very responsive, and accommodated all of our needs for the wedding day without question! We thoroughly enjoyed having him as our wedding officiant!

Chase was amazing! We weren't sure where or how to find an officiant but were lucky to find him online. After reading others reviews, every word holds true. He was flexible with our schedules as well as fast to respond with any and all questions we had. The best part was being able to put our ceremony together ourselves. With a little more help from Chase our ceremony turned out perfectly. We would recommend him to all of those who are getting married in the Columbus area. Great value for perfect service.

After searching online for an officiant, I came across Columbus Wedding Officiants and read Chase's story. He seemed like a very laid back type of person, which pleased me because I wanted someone that would make my fiance (now husband) comfortable at our ceremony! When we first met Chase in person, we were both a bit nervous because "it was becoming real." Just as I had assumed after reading his bio, Chase was very nice and relaxed! He made us both feel reassured about our choice in selecting him to officiate our ceremony. He had sent me sample ceremonies that he had performed in the past, allowing me to think about what type of ceremony I had wanted. He wanted me to have a big say in how I wanted our wedding ceremony. It was nice because I was able to take bits and pieces from each sample ceremony to create the ABSOLUTE PERFECT one for us! :) We couldn't have asked for a more beautiful ceremony! A BIG THANK YOU goes to Chase! Thank you for being a part of our special day! I would DEFINITELY recommend Chase to anyone who is looking for an officiant! He will answer whatever questions you may have before AND after the wedding! He sends you reminders on when to get your marriage license, and after the wedding, he sends you an email regarding how to go about changing your name, etc...You would be making a right decision by choosing Chase! :)

All I can say is that Chase was amazing! He was the officiant for my wedding and it was great. He emailed me before the wedding to tell me how to get my marriage license and the procedure. He then emailed me frequently to keep in touch about what we wanted for our wedding and what we would like to be said in our vows. He was able to keep it short, but sweet, and still personal. My family loved him and kept saying what a great job he did during the ceremony. After the wedding I got an email the same day I got married telling me how to change my name, get a new social security card and do all the needed changes. Without that I would have been lost. Chase would be a great addition to any wedding!

We had a hard time initially finding an officiant since, for reasons longer than this post will allow, we didn't want anyone with a religious background. At the same time we didn't want someone who just jumped on the internet to get certified and didn't have experience. When we found Chase we were so cautiously optimistic. My husband recently had knee surgery when we emailed Chase and he immediately showed his flexibility by meeting us in our home. We knew he was right for us at that meeting and he was extremely responsive and helpful, checking up on us when we were overwhelmed with other things. The most important part for us is that I have a daughter from a previous relationship and Chase allowed us to customize the ceremony to include her. We received LOTS of compliments on our ceremony and we couldn't be happier that we found Chase!

I'm not usually given to effusive praise, but in this case I'll make an exception. Chase's services were, in all respects, outstanding. Chase took the time to get to know my wife and I, and worked with us to create a ceremony in keeping with our personalities. The ceremony went off without a hitch and everyone in attendance remarked at how well it turned out. I would not change anything about the experience. Neither my wife nor I felt stressed before, during, or after the ceremony. This was thanks in large part to Chase's expert services.

He was so helpful along the way, providing us with more than enough information about getting our marriage license and name changing, even reminded us when to get our marriage license which helps a lot when the rest of the planning starts to take over! Most importantly, he was very sincere, he took a little time to get to know our story when we met with him, and he was personable and easy to talk to which made us feel comfortable having him officiate our ceremony. He helped us out by reviewing our ceremony in writing beforehand and giving us feedback which was awesome! I feel like he truly enjoys what he does and that's a good thing to have in the person who is performing your ceremony. My husband and I couldn't have found a better officiant.

I would recommend Chase to everyone I know getting married!! He was so great to work with, professional, knowledgeable, flexible and friendly. From the time we first met with Chase to our wedding day he was available to answer questions and provide advice for the ceremony. On our wedding day Chase helped with drying flowers so they wouldn't ruin the bridal parties dresses (his idea), watching the weather (because it was a rainy day), and calming the nervous of friends and family. Chase was also willing to perform the ceremony in the rain and rearrange details on the spot when it begin to rain harder. The day before at our rehearsal I had bridal party members that were 30 min late to the rehearsal, which wasn't a problem for Chase as he waited until they arrived to begin the rehearsal. Chase really made our wedding and rehearsal go as smooth as possible.

My husband and I struggled to find our "perfect" officiant for the first few months of our planning -- that is, until we found Chase. The sample ceremonies he provides are great, but the fact that you can add and edit things as you like is amazing. We were truly able to make our ceremony about us. Chase is very nice and professional. He definitely fulfilled all of our expectations and made our ceremony better than we ever imagined. We are so happy we found Chase!

Chase Waits is a phenominal officiant and we could not have asked for anyone better. He was thoughtful and kind and wrote the most beauttiful ceremony for us. WE had been looking very hard for a non denominational officiant and were not having very good luck finding someone that seemed to really understand us and what we were looking for. WE would recommend Chase to anyone looking for a organized and beautiful ceremony.

I was a nervous wreck on my wedding day and had a hard time keeping it together during the ceremony. Chase was very good at calming our nerves. He also provided a bunch of sample ceremony ideas from which I then selected bits and pieces from different ones to create the perfect ceremony for us. It was everything I could have asked for!

After a long, hard search for an officiant we finally found Chase Waits with Columbus Wedding Officiants randomly on the internet. He was very quick to reply to our request to meet with him and came more than prepared. Chase is very easy going and we knew right away he was the perfect fit for our ceremony. He didn't pressure us to do anything we didn't want and encouraged us to make the ceremony our own. He was very helpful in the days leading up to the wedding, answering questions and making changes whenever we asked. Even though our wedding was not in the Columbus area, he worked with us to travel to our location. The day of the wedding ran so smoothly and Chase helped put both of us at ease. The ceremony went perfectly and we honestly couldn't be happier! I would definitely recommend Chase and already have to some of my recently engaged friends!

We started our search for an officiant online and were so fortunate to find Chase. Not only did he go above and beyond in answering our questions and providing us with information we didn’t even realize we needed, he also had one unique quality that will stay with us for a long time – his calming presence leading up to and during the ceremony. Whether Chase realized it or not, he helped us to relax and simply enjoy our wedding day. For this, we are ever so grateful.

Chase recently officiated our marriage ceremony, and we couldn't have been happier with him! Upon meeting him, we loved his personality and knew we wanted him to officiate our ceremony; he was very pleasant, informative, organized, and laid-back. Throughout the process, he kept us very informed, and even sent us a reminder e-mail when it was time to get our marriage license (along with extremely helpful instructions)! The night he officiated our ceremony, he even sent me an e-mail with instructions on how to get my name changed! He was very prompt to responding to questions throughout the process, and provided an entire packet of sample ceremonies that was extremely helpful in deciding what we wanted for our ceremony. He was able to take bits and pieces we liked from different samples and put them together to make something that was just perfect for us! I would certainly recommend Chase to anyone seeking an officiant, and I am so happy we chose him! He did an absolutely wonderful job and helped to make our wedding day amazing!!

We found Steven through theKnot.com after one meeting with him we knew he was what we wanted. He provided us with lots of help in applying for the marriage license and with name changes. We were super comfortable prior to the wedding with him and with the ceremony he had customized for us.
Steven is also amazing with last minute problems. It started to sprinkle during our outdoor ceremony, by the time the bride was walking down the aisle it was pouring down rain. Neither Steven nor the groomsmen had an umbrella and all were drenched by the end… but the ceremony was still fantastic. He announced we were doing a short short version and had everyone laughing and smiling.
When we got to our reception he offered to marry us again and that time around we had the full ceremony that we had picked out from his list of suggestions mixed in with our own. Other than being soaking wet it was exactly what we had been looking for.

Steven was the officiant for our wedding on June 28th and he was great! From our first meeting with Steven, we knew that he was our officiant. He is cool, calm and collected, which is what we were looking for in an officiant. My husband and I were really looking to personalize our wedding ceremony and Steven made it very easy for us. The Columbus Wedding Officiants have many different types of ceremony styles to choose from, so my husband and I were able to pick and choose our own readings and the flow of the ceremony as well. After my husband and I had picked out what we wanted, we sent the information to Steven and he took care of everything else. Steven was always easy to get a hold of either by phone or e-mail and always on time! We decided to pay a little extra and have Steven at our rehearsal as well. Based on our venue (Franklin Park Conservatory), I am glad we did. He went through everything so that we felt comfortable knowing where we needed to be and when. After the ceremony, Steven sent us an e-mail with information regarding how to go about changing my last name and when/where to pick up the marriage abstract. This was extremely helpful so that I didn't have to go around researching what I needed to be doing!

Chase was fantastic!! My new husband and I are agnostic and were specifically looking for an officiant who could provide us with a ceremony that would be beautiful yet secular, tasteful and a reflection of who we are as a couple. From the moment we contacted him (via email) to request his services to officiate our wedding ceremony, Chase was always quick to respond, thorough and professional. He provided us with lots of information and choices to tailor our ceremony to be exactly what *we* wanted, and was flexible in giving us complete control over every detail. My telephone consultation with Chase (as we were from out-of-state) immediately put me at ease, as he has a very friendly and laid-back personality that was exactly what we were looking for in an officiant on our special day. The day of the ceremony, Chase was prompt (more so than a few family members that were guests!) and professional, nicely dressed in a dark suit and well-prepared for the ceremony. He was very thorough in explaining the legal ceremony aspects and the details of the ceremony itself. He was so friendly and easy-going it was almost like he was part of the family! The ceremony itself was flawless (what I remember of it, it went by so fast!) and our guests were impressed. Chase reads the ceremony from his iPad, which we felt was less conspicuous and more organized than shuffling through papers at an outdoor venue. After the ceremony, he promptly sent me an email detailing all the necessary steps to take to change my name and get copies of the marriage abstract. Though we paid a bit more to offset the travel costs of a ceremony outside of Columbus, I felt the cost was very reasonable and money well-spent for such a beautiful ceremony (not to mention for the peace of mind knowing we were in such capable and professional hands!). Thanks so much Chase!!

We chose to have a nautical/beach themed wedding and he incorporated that theme into our ceremony perfectly. He was also extremely helpful in how to change your name. He emailed a step by step process that made the process much easier to understand. Steven was very easy to get a hold of if we had any questions and was always prompt.

Wow, what an officiant!! Chase made the entire process of getting married incredibly easy. From when we first met with him to go over the basic ideas of our ceremony, to the planning of the vows, to the actual wedding, he was informative, easy to work with, and overall a great person.
When we were trying to come up with different ideas for exactly what we wanted to say in our vows, Chase was right there with multiple examples of what people had said in the past and some of his own ideas about what sounded pleasant.
Something that people might overlook is the amount of paperwork involved in actually getting married (the license, changing of the name). Chase basically takes care of all of this by either turning in the appropriate paperwork for you or sending you informative emails about what needs to be done.
We cannot stress enough how fantastic Chase was and would recommend him to anyone planning on getting married in the future.

We recommend Chase Waits to any couple in need of an officiant for their ceremony! After setting our date and beginning to plan, we originally pursued an officiant we know through a mutual acquaintance, but he was already booked over a year in advance. However, he highly recommended Chase Waits. Blindly searching online for a licensed wedding officiant can be overwhelming, so it is reassuring to know Chase is also well respected by his peers!

From our first meeting with Chase, we knew he was perfect for our wedding. He provided sample readings of ceremonies, gave us the flexibility to basically write our own, and eventually helped us piece it all together when we needed his suggestions to finalize everything.

We opted to have Chase conduct a brief rehearsal the evening before our wedding. We did not have a wedding planner and our ceremony was in a public park (McFerson Commons), so Chase helped to suggest how the bridal party should walk in, how they should stand, and various other details we had not really thought about. On our wedding day the bride was delivered to the park via Columbus Pedicab, and Chase took it upon himself to signal the driver when to begin approaching, so the music could be cued for the bride's arrival. All of this helped make our casual 10-minute ceremony seem flawless and very professional...and our friends are still complementing our ceremony!

In addition to conducting our wedding, Chase continues to add his personal touch. Leading up to our wedding date, Chase contacted us when to apply for our marriage license to make sure we did not forget such an important item! After our rehearsal and ceremony, Chase personally handled everything associated with filing our marriage license. And in the days following, Chase contacted us to provide all necessary instructions for the bride to change her name.

There is nothing Chase could have done to make our wedding more perfect! Chase Waits is simply the best wedding officiant in Columbus!!

All of this helped make our casual 10-minute ceremony seem flawless and very professional...and our friends are still complementing our ceremony!

In addition to conducting our wedding, Chase continues to add his personal touch. Leading up to our wedding date, Chase contacted us when to apply for our marriage license to make sure we did not forget such an important item! After our rehearsal and ceremony, Chase personally handled everything associated with filing our marriage license. And in the days following, Chase contacted us to provide all necessary instructions for the bride to change her name.

There is nothing Chase could have done to make our wedding more perfect! Chase Waits is simply the best wedding officiant in Columbus!! Read less

Our experience with Chase was great from start to finish. He was very professional and helped us to design a unique ceremony to fit our personalities. It was definitely worth the extra money to have him at the rehearsal, which he conducted thoroughly and efficiently. We were so happy to have him as a part of our day, and would recommend him to any couple. Thank you, Chase!

Chase did a wonderful job on our wedding ceremony. I planned the event from out of town but never felt any worry when it came to Chase and our ceremony. He was actually our 2nd option....our initial minister was aloof, uncommunicative, unorganized and overall made me VERY nervous! I was so happy to find Chase and see what a officiants service should be like.

There were many compliments on the ceremony and Chase himself at my wedding. He is highly recommended!!

Chase really couldn't have been nicer or more professional! We were looking for an officiant who fit our laid-back personalities but still remained knowledgeable and professional. Chase was all of this and more. He has a very calming and confident nature, which is something you will be thankful for on the day of your wedding ;). He facilitated a ceremony that was completely unique to us, while still providing help and guidance along the way when we had questions.

BUT his services didn't stop there! Unprompted, he provided me with information about the process of changing my name once we got back from the honeymoon!

Thanks so much Chase!

Steven officiated our 4/27 wedding. He was a breeze to work with! We met with him and then emailed what we would like the ceremony to include. There are loads of ideas and complete ceremonies on their website, which made it even easier! We were able to have a secular ceremony that was still meaningful and special. Our family and friends loved it!\r\nSteven was on time for the rehearsal and walked us though the ceremony step by step. He was patient and answered any questions we had.\r\nThe best part was that two hours after the ceremony, I received an email from Steven not only congratulating us, but telling me exactly how to go about changing my last name. That\'s worth its weight in gold!\r\nThank you Steven and Columbus Wedding Officiants for making our day so easy and special. We will be recommending you to all of our unwed friends!\r\n

We would highly recommend Chase to anyone who is getting married--and in fact, we already have! Our ceremony was more meaningful, organized, and unique because of the ideas and assistance that he offered. He was very responsive as well, so we never felt like there were any unanswered questions or loose ends--very important when you are pulling a wedding together! He was professionally dressed and performed the ceremony exactly as we had requested. We are truly happy with our experience. --LeAnne and Ken

He sent us 10 ceremony samples and we were able to pick and choose which portions to keep for our own ceremony. Chase also went out of his way to help with suggestions and to review the ceremony we wrote to make sure it was perfect for our big day. He also did a great job leading the rehearsal and making sure everyone was prepared for the wedding.

I would definitely recommend Chase! Even a close friend of mine has already booked him for her wedding this coming May.

Chase just officiated our wedding on October 6th and our ceremony was honestly perfect! Working with Chase was such a pleasure - he is so down to earth and friendly and was such a calming presence on our wedding day. And he was SO helpful! When planning our ceremony, we didn't really know where to begin and he provided us with so many different resources. Using what he gave us, we were able to plan our own unique ceremony that was perfect for us. And it went beautifully - he did everything just the way we wanted, didn't try to change anything or add anything of his own. He also helped a lot with information on getting the marriage license, changing names, etc. I truly can't say enough good things about Chase - I HIGHLY recommend him if you're looking for a wedding officiant! You really will not be disappointed.

My coordinator had recommended him after several other fails, and after our initial meeting we felt immediate relief. Chase's calm demeanor and non-pushiness was a breath of fresh air in the wedding vendor world. We ended up receiving SO many compliments on our ceremony - how beautiful it was, personal, a little different, and just 'us'. Chase was the perfect fit for us and was so easy to work with. It was such a nice feeling to know I had nothing to worry about regarding our ceremony. I would highly recommend him to friends, family, and anyone looking for a wedding officiant!

Steven was our officiate for our wedding. He did a wonderful job! We had wanted an old pastor of the groom to marry us but he had moved too far for travel. We both were a little nervous about having an officiant that did not know us; however when we sat down to meet with Steven the first time, all nervousness was gone!! He asked questions in depth to get to know US and worked with us to make our ceremony "ours"! Family and friends commented throughout the entire night about what a great job he did with the ceremony. Steven was very easy to get ahold of and responded in a very timely manner. I could not have asked for a better ceremony and would recommend him to anyone! Plus he traveled to the farm for us!!!

It was a pleasure to have Chase be a part of our special day! Chase was very easy to work with and he made the whole ceremony process easy. We met with him early on in our planning process and he told us about himself and then he wanted to hear about us. Then he let us know that really the sky is the limit with whatever kind of ceremony we would like. He gave us a sample ceremony packet and let us know we could pick a ceremony as it is or we could piece together different parts from several different ceremonies to create a new one. He really let us make it our own and would be as involved as we wanted him to be. He was very quick to respond with answers to questions which was nice. He also sends great reminder emails about getting your marriage license and instructions on some of the things you need to do after you’re married – like remembering to change your name with all of the important things like credit cards, social security card, etc.

Chase was on time, if not early, for our first meeting, the rehearsal and our wedding day. Our rehearsal went very smoothly and our wedding day was even less stressful with Chase there. No complaints at all!

We found Steven, our officiant, through Chase Waits, Central Ohio Wedding Officiating online. At first, I was sketchy using someone online but all those uncertainties went away once we met Steven. He was very approachable, pleasant and easy going. He was prompt, to the point and had all details (even the ones I had not thought about - surprise :) covered. My husband and I were able to customize our ceremony through the many wonderful samples provided by the officiating company. Our wedding ceremony turned out beautiful and I had no worries on the officiating side of things. He looked professional, used an IPAD to read from (not that's modern ! LOL), and was there to answer any questions quickly along the way. I would definitely recommend Steven to officiant any of my friends/family weddings.

I have to give Chase Waits a perfect review. He was an amazing officiant and made our ceremony absolutely wonderful! We met with 2 other officiants in the Columbus area and neither one of them came close to the value and service we got from Chase. His ceremony/vow choices fit us perfectly and his fee is the best around! He was very quick to respond to any questions or concerns we had prior to the wedding day. He was flexible to tailor our ceremony specifically to us which made it very intimate and personal. I would recommend him to anyone looking for a wedding officiant.

I found Chase's website by surfing the web and I am thrilled I did! We had our initial consultation - he explained who he was and why he likes to officiate - made sure we knew him as a person. We didn't know what to ask as we were new to this marriage thing- he let us know that we were normal :) He came to our rehearsal and managed to pull our rowdy bridal party together so we knew what to do the next day. He was early to every meeting and especially on the wedding day. He spoke with confidence and we had many compliments on him. I would definitely recommend him! Thanks for everything Chase!

Chase was exactly what we were looking for in an officiant. His personality is perfect for the position - reassuring, calm, patient, and friendly. We wanted to create an personal, secular ceremony and found ourselves overwhelmed with too many choices and no clear guidelines. Chase walked us through everything and we ended up with a hand-crafted, inclusive ceremony that represented us as a couple. Chase met with us multiple times, welcomed my many edits to the ceremony, and charmed everyone at the rehearsal dinner and wedding. I would strongly recommend him to anyone!

We were referred to Chase Waits by another wedding officiant who was unavailable during our ceremony time. Chase was also unavailable but offered the services of his brother-in-law, Steven Fitzpatrick, instead. He was up front with us that Steven had never officiated a wedding before but was looking for his first client currently. Chase explained that he would work closely with Steven in preparation of our vows since he was just getting started. We met with both of them once to discuss the services, the process of creating the vows and the fees. They were very helpful, laid-back, did not offer judgment, etc. They also provided us with several vow and reading options to use. We were very comfortable in their presence and decided to offer Steven his first chance at officiating. We met with them a second time to go over the final details of the vows and ask for their advice on placement of readings, etc. Chase was very knowledgeable and offered some great options. They were kind enough to take our very rough ceremony outline and scraps of paper and put them together for us. Steven was available for our rehearsal the night before the ceremony and everything went very smoothly. He seemed to really feel comfortable and to know what he was doing. The ceremony itself was perfect. Everything flowed so well and Steven spoke very clearly. He even used a tablet to read the ceremony from- very high tech! His emphasis on words was dead on, and my family raved about him. Not to mention, he looks great in the photos! My husband and I are both on the tall side, and so is Steven. I highly recommend both Steven and Chase for your ceremony services. We were thrilled with them.

From the beginning we felt confident about our choice to have Chase be a part of our special day. His ability to help us customize a ceremony that reflected our personalities and beliefs was spectacular, and his calm and pleasant nature was a welcome addition to a day filled with happy, nervous energy. We enjoyed getting to know Chase as he helped shape our Wedding Ceremony into something we were proud to share with our family and friends. Chase was great at communicating and would respond to our emails quickly to answer any questions we had or any changes we wanted made.

Always there with a kind smile, Chase made us feel comfortable, as though a friend we'd known for years was guiding us through the moment.

We would highly recommend Chase and wish him all the best and success in the future.

My husband and I had booked an officiant almost a year in advance of our wedding. Four months before our wedding day, our officiant advised they were moving and would be unable to perform our ceremony. I had a difficult time finding an officiant that, frankly, wasn't corny or just plain weird. Then, I came across Columbus Wedding Officiants. Chase performed our ceremony. He was fantastic! He was professional, responsive, and helpful. Chase provided numerous sample ceremonies to reference, which was incredibly helpful. We had the option to use an existing ceremony, customize one, or work with Chase to create a completely original ceremony! We were able to have ceremony that fit us perfectly. It was a perfect balance of traditional and original- and not at all cheesy! I definitely recommend Columbus Wedding Officiants.

We didn\'t know where to start and he assured us not to worry and handled everything from sending us sample scripts of how our marrige ceremony would go and all we had to do was pick what fit us the most. He came to our rehearsal and had no problems with meeting us when we needed him. I would definitely recommend Chase if you want a great officiant.
