Chase was a pleasure to work with! He was accommodating from the very beginning, meeting with us over Skype since we were planning our wedding from out of town. He nailed every detail, down to providing me a tissue during the ceremony when I needed it most. Chase was timely to respond to emails and really helpful in planning the ceremony. He provided great suggestions and was able to perfectly incorporate the story of our love into our ceremony making it so unique to us. He seamlessly ran the rehearsal for us since we did not use a coordinator and made everyone feel at ease. The ceremony went so smoothly and we definitely have Chase to thank for that. I would sincerely HIGHLY recommend Chase to anyone looking for an officiant, a customized ceremony, and to work with someone who really knows what they are doing!!!

We initially contacted Chase via email and he was very quick to respond and very helpful. I was an out of town bride and didn't have time to drive back and forth to the location of the wedding. Chase was very accommodating by having Skype meetings where I could ask my million questions. Chase was always helpful but not pushy in any way. He lets you know he is there for YOU and will do exactly what YOU want. He provides many different programs and vows if you don't want to write your own, all of which are great.

I can't say how great Chase was to work with. He was always on time and very kind to everyone involved (even bothersome parents or late parties). You will not regret choosing Chase!

Chase did a great job - he was very attentive, responsive, and organized throughout our whole wedding process. He answered my questions via email during the wedding planning process, and was very helpful during our rehearsal. On our wedding day, he even gave me (the bride) a handkerchief to use as I started to cry during the ceremony, because no one else had a tissue to give me - he thought of everything that we might possibly need before we asked for it. My favorite part about our ceremony was the control we had over the content of the ceremony - Chase will give you as much or as little control as you like regarding what is said (or what is not said) at your wedding. You can truly make your wedding ceremony as personal and individualized as you want. So glad we chose Columbus Wedding Officiants!

Chase was beyond perfect. From the moment my husband and I met him, we knew that he would do a fantastic job. He is patient, understanding, and never judgmental. He offers a huge packet of sample ceremonies, and didn't mind at all when I took bits and pieces from many different ceremonies to create my own. He was there every step of the way, and on the day of the wedding, he was on time, ready to go, and he did an amazing job. He was clear and articulate in his delivery, something I was concerned about since my mother had remarried the previous summer and she had this terrible old man who couldn't stop coughing and blowing his nose while trying to get through their ceremony.

Chase is just a genuinely good guy and it shows through in his work. He truly cares about the couples he works with and his pricing is right on par with his competitors. I would recommend him to absolutely anyone. Chase is the only vendor from my entire wedding who performed EXACTLY as expected, and I am so happy that we found him.

If you are looking for a ceremony that is uniquely yours, will be remembered by all in attendance, and will truly capture the nature of the promise you’re making, Chase Waits is the Officiant for you. When we first met him it was like we had known him for years. He takes real pride and joy in what he does. His ceremony options are so different and beautiful you can mix and match and find the perfect fit for your wedding. He was always there to help along the way, even reminding us about when to get our marriage license, and how to change my last name. At most weddings everyone talks about how great the reception was, and little is said about the ceremony. At our wedding we were repeatedly told by our guests that it was the BEST ceremony they’d ever attended (our reception was awesome too, but different story for a different time.)
There is nothing negative to say about our experience with Chase. He was calm cool and collected on the day, and I can’t imagine anyone else marrying us. So happy with our choice to go with Chase.

My husband and I worked with Chase for our September 13th wedding. He was prepared and professional throughout the planning process, and he was easy to get a hold of and always willing to assist. There was a large selection of ceremony examples for us to see, and Chase delivered exactly what we wanted.

Many of our guests had wonderful things to say about the ceremony as well! After the wedding, Chase sent a helpful email with information on how to change my name, which was very much appreciated as well.

We would highly recommend Columbus Wedding Officiants, and it was a pleasure to have Chase officiate our ceremony!

My now husband & I hired Chase to officiate our Wedding ceremony on September 6th. We were more than pleased with how easy Chase made the marriage process. As with any couple, we weren't sure exactly what needed to be done in order to seal the deal on our big day. He was a very kind and patient individual to work with, and he settled any of our worries on the spot. We are so glad that Chase married us, and we highly recommend him to anyone else taking the big leap into marriage!

It was such a pleasure to have Chase officiate our wedding in August! He was so flexible and patient with us. He walked us through exactly what needed to be done before AND after the wedding! He was so organized and professional, I felt such a relief after our first meeting. We searched for a long time and met with numerous people before we found Chase. No one we met with compared to him. We received numerous compliments on our ceremony and it is all thanks to Chase! I would recommend him to anyone in need of an officiant =]
