Chase Waits with Columbus Wedding Officiants was incredible to work with! My fiance (now husband) and I live in Columbus but have yet to connect with a church. We were looking for an officiant who we "clicked" with and would be flexible with doing our ceremony however we wanted. Chase met us one Sunday at a Starbucks in Westerville, and we knew immediately he would be a great fit! Right away he said he does this because he loves witnessing the love and commitment between two people and he wants to make our ceremony exactly how we wanted on our special day - and he truly did just that! He gives great ideas on ways you can set up your readings/vows/exchange of rings, but is really flexible in changing any part to make it your own. I would recommend Chase again and again to other newlyweds!

Working with Chase was one of the best decisions we made for our wedding in mid-April! He was flexible when we worked on writing our own ceremony, offering valuable feedback and adding things to make the flow stronger. We had several people comment after the ceremony on how personal it was. We cannot say enough good things about working with Chase!

Chase was amazing. He was so professional and helpful, he worked with us on creating the perfect ceremony and he delivered it with great style. Everyone said that they thought our ceremony was beautiful, and it fit us perfectly. We could not have asked for a better officiant for our wedding, and it was so comforting to have someone so experienced to coach us through all the steps of the application and follow-up with the courts. Thank you Chase!

We had such a great experience with Chase. He was so easy to work with, and he provided some great suggestions to help us shape our ceremony to what we wanted it to be. From his willingness to work with our "Top Ten" reasons we want to be married list to his awesome suggestions, we just had a wonderful experience. I would highly recommend him to any prospective bride!

I would recommend Columbus Wedding Officiants to anyone in the area. We worked with Chase and he was awesome to work with. Chase was very polite and easy to work with throughout the entire process. He made us feel comfortable and gave us a lot of choices to personalize our ceremony exactly how we wanted it. Chase was great on our wedding day. He traveled more than an hour away to perform our ceremony and showed up in plenty of time. He did a wonderful job and presented our vows exactly how we had imagined. Again, we can't say how much we enjoyed working with Chase. He is your guy if you want a creative, reliable and professional wedding officiant :)

We found Chase on The Knot’s website when searching for an officiant for our wedding in Columbus, Ohio. We did not know anyone who could perform our ceremony and we were not members of a church when we lived in Ohio. So first we set up a phone call to speak with Chase together to see if we like to have him officiate. We loved him from the start. He was so easy to talk to and it felt like we had known him for longer than one phone conversation. Since we planned our wedding while living in Wisconsin, we met Chase in person when traveling to Columbus to finalize some details months before the wedding. Our meeting was great, Chase promised to follow up with tips on our writing on our vows, which he did right away. About two weeks before our wedding it was time to create our ceremony so we spoke to Chase on the phone, he had already read our vows, and told us he would send a draft to us within a couple of days. We loved the ceremony he wrote and so did everyone who attended our wedding. It was a more modern ceremony but meaningful and beautiful. My brother thought we had known Chase during the time we lived in Columbus, Ohio and I think that is a testament to how well he performed our ceremony. Chase even wore a purple tie for the ceremony which was one of our wedding colors. Absolutely loved our experience with him! Also when we returned from our honeymoon we discovered the court didn't process our marriage certificate. Chase called the court to see what happened, (they lost it) and wrote a letter to them saying he did marry us and followed up with us throughout the whole process until it was processed so I could order the marriage abstract for my name change.

Chase was great! He helped me write our ceremony wording, and stayed on script! I've been to so many weddings where the officiant seems to ramble on about all kinds of things, and the guests start to zone out. He kept it short and simple like I wanted and gave some great feedback on how to tie everything together. He has a very calm demeanor, which helped my husband and I stay calm. Our ceremony was perfect and Chase definitely helped make that happen! Highly recommend him!

Chase was a pleasure to work with! He is very professional and very helpful with the entire process. He was a huge help during our rehearsal since most of our wedding party did not know the typical procession actions. Many of our guests commented on how beautiful and well done the ceremony was.

I wish there was another star I could add to each of the categories. Chase was fantastic. Jim and I were thrilled with his officiating at our wedding. His words were beautiful and perfect and a great mix of both me (Christian) and Jim (agnostic). He was supportive from the day we first met, through the months between and through the rehearsal dinner and ceremony the next day. His very relaxed demeanor made us both at ease and we still get compliments to this day from family and friends telling us how much they loved the ceremony. I highly recommend Chase. He was a true blessing on our special day.
