We have all been to wedding ceremonies that feel like they came from a box. No matter how well spoken, doesn't it seem like most wedding ceremonies start to sound the same? It doesn't have to be that way. This is your wedding and your story matters. I can help you break free from the ordinary and create an extraordinary ceremony experience.

A heartfelt, personal ceremony creates a swell of excitement and joy that flows right into the reception and sets the tone for a magical event. How do I know this, because I have officiated for hundreds of ceremonies in the past 5 years across Connecticut, New England and for destination weddings abroad.

My name is Elisa Chase, I am an ordained non-denominational Minister and a certified Life Cycle Celebrant® Creating a heartfelt, personalized ceremony that you and your family and friends will remember forever, is my goal. If you are looking for something more than a standard ceremony, that embraces your perspectives, I would love to talk to you about how we can work together to craft a wedding ceremony that becomes a meaningful and integrated part of your wedding experience.

I bring an open mind and heart, a collaborative style, a contemporary, creative approach, and all the organizational tools needed. All you bring is eachother and your story. We can take it from there. I believe you should have as much input into your wedding ceremony as you do in all the other aspects of your wedding day and I have a standard time honored process that starts and ends with YOU. Your ceremony is written just for you, and you approve every word.

Remember all the reasons you fell in love, hold onto the way you make eachother feel, walk down the aisle confident and excited, in the moment and aware that you are holding the hands of your soul mate, in exactly the place you were meant to be with exactly the person you are meant to be with. Your wedding ceremony will affirm your commitment and leave you feeling wonderful.

You can find out more about me at www.tapestryceremonies.com or stop by and LIKE my Facebook page at www.facebook.com/tapestryceremonies.

I would love to talk to you about creating a uniquely branded ceremony that speaks from your heart, reflects your love and becomes a life long memory of the best day of your life. Let's talk about how we can make it all happen for you. Select dates remain in 2014 in Central Connecticut, and I am currently booking weddings for 2015/2016 in Connecticut, New England , New York and New Jersey.

I am looking forward to hearing from you,

Elisa wrote the most beautiful, personal ceremony for us. She was able to capture us and our relationship perfectly- incorporating our personalities, our history, and even the mountain setting of our wedding into the ceremony. She was incredibly professional and easy to work with, and she really knows how to put a stressed bride's mind at ease! We had so many wedding guests tell us how beautiful the ceremony was and how it made them laugh and cry.

We absolutely couldn't have picked a better celebrant for the most important day of our lives and we will be forever grateful to her for making it everything we had dreamed of and more.

We can't thank Elisa enough for creating a ceremony that was more meaningful than we thought we would ever find. She was really supportive of my self and my partner. We really liked meeting her, but on our wedding day we were a little nervous, when we saw her walking across the park with a huge smile on her face we totally relaxed and felt joyful and relaxed.

As a same gender couple, we felt like Elisa was there for us in so many ways. Our ceremony made us both cry because it made us realize how happy we are to be able to spend the rest of our lives together and it helped us focus so much on who we are and how lucky we are.

Thank you Elisa from the bottom of our hearts.

Our wedding ceremony was a wonderful experience because we chose to work with Elisa and Tapestry Ceremonies. We had no idea what we wanted but we knew we did not want standard religious or totally impersonal. We met with a few JP's and it was too business like. Many didn't even return our calls. Then we met Elisa and everything changed. She totally understands that not everyone is the same, we did not want something like everyone else, but we also didn't want anything too different or too out there. She made us feel comfortable and then she totally blew us away with the ceremony she wrote for and about us. More than we could have imagined, we loved our wedding ceremony. Our family and friends keep telling us how wonderful it was to hear about our own love story and how it made them all laugh and cry.

Our wedding ceremony was one of the highlights of our entire day. Elisa and her assistant took care of everything. Our ceremony told our family and friends about the love we share and it reminded us why we were getting married. Everyone has told us they never saw anything like our ceremony because it was all about what we are to one another. We are expecting a baby in the fall, and Elisa will be working with us to create a baby welcoming that is as special as our wedding day. .

When we started planning our wedding we knew we wanted something different, not out of this world, but something more than a quick service sand ceremony and some personal vows. We had no idea how to make our wedding ceremony meaningful and memorable until we met Elisa. She spent time getting to know us from the first time we talked to her. She worked with us to get a good idea of who we are and what we really wanted to convey, and then she got to work. When she sent us our draft ceremony, I cried at work!! It was perfect and beautiful and it was totally "us". I give her the highest recommendations, and so do my family and friends. Of all the things people talked about our wedding, our ceremony came up time and time again. I can't wait for Elisa to help us renew our vows - and to be there to do a baby welcoming when the time arrives.

Elisa is without a doubt AMAZING. Our ceremony was so personal and unique, we were blown away. Our guests continue to tell us how emotional and beautiful the ceremony was. I reread it all the time- she included everything we asked for plus some. We got married on All Souls Day and it was super important to us to mention loved ones who had passed and Elisa told the most beautiful story without making it super sad. She has a knack for people and understands who you are and will tell your story like she's known you forever.

Elisa is literally a phone call or email away. She responded to every email and question I had leading up to our wedding so quickly. She's wonderful! Do yourself a favor and contact her!!!!

Elisa was amazing as our wedding officiant, and I can’t say enough great things about her! From the very beginning of our planning, to creating our own unique wedding ceremony, to the rehearsal, and the day of, Elisa was there with us every step of the way. She was able to custom create a wedding ceremony that really reflected our love and commitment to one another. I’ve had to sit through plenty of stuffy ceremonies, and Elisa understood what we were looking for, and was able to create a ceremony that was truly ours. When you book with Elisa, you know that you will be in great hands since you’ll be working with THE BEST!

From the first time we talked to Elisa on the phone until the moment that she completed our ceremony, it was nothing but a total pleasure to work with her. She is eloquant and professional, warm, inviting and reassuring and she is on top of every detail. She wrote a ceremony that was totally unique but yet, totally understandable to everyone. We give her our highest and most sincere recommendation. We should probably also mention we were from out of state and Elisa worked with us by phone, skpe and email. She was just awesome.

Elisa provided us with the most beautiful, perfect Wedding Ceremony! Everyone thought it was so unique. My Aunt passed away just one month prior to my wedding and my family was still grieving and Elisa figured out just the right words to say at the start of our ceremony to acknowledge and honor her. Everyone was so touched and really loved it. We chose to have a customized ceremony and Elisa found the way to merge contemporary with traditional- it was so cool! The common thing everyone kept telling me was that it was "so you". I am truly grateful I found Elisa because she really created a ceremony that reflected me and my husband and our personalities. She is undoubtedly amazing. A million thanks!

From start to finish, working with Elisa was easy, stressfree, enjoyable and in the end remarkable. We had no idea what to expect from a Celebrant, and what we found with Elisa exceeded all our thoughts or expectations. She really took care of details but mostly she wrote a ceremony that was like nothing anyone in our family or friends had ever heard. It was about our story and it was about the things that are important to us. She even helped us consider adding meaningful touches to our ceremony that made it super special. We laugh because when we met her we told her we wanted something short fast but as we listened and talked, we realized what we really wanted was to cut out all the old fashioned traditional impersonal language and we wanted to keep in the parts of a wedding that touched us. Elisa showed us that by having a personalized ceremony, we did not have to settle for anything, we could have a ceremony that matches our hopes and dreams of our wedding day. This is probably too long, but for everyone out there thinking your ceremony is just something to get over with, you should talk to Elisa. You will see your wedding from a whole different perspective.

My partner and I were married on June 26, 2013 in Beautiful Elizabeth Park of West Hartford, CT. From our very first phone call to Elisa, we were pleased with her ease, politeness and openness to answer any questions about her services. There were other officiants that we called, but no one compared to her availability, pricing, personality and communication. Elisa was a very good listener who was always there to hear our ideas, as well as offer a few of her own. She was available via phone and email communication whenever we had a question. We connected with her on a level that was 'just right' for what we envisioned. Elisa of Tapestry Ceremonies is the 'GO-TO' girl for CT weddings. Our wedding ceremony would not have been what it was without Elisa and her craft. We wish much success to you, your vision, your business and any endeavor that may come your way.

I first spoke with Elisa through email - I just sent her an email loaded with questions as I had seen her name online. Elisa provided me with an extremely helpful response that included a detailed answer for all my questions. After that, we decided to meet with Elisa for some additional questions and to consider her for our wedding. She was incredibly personable and she made you feel like a friend right away.

She provided that personal service each step of the way and in the end delivered a beautiful personlized ceremony which was exactly what we were looking for. I can't even count how many people have reached out to us letting us know what a beautiful ceremony it was.

I highly recommend Elisa as she has a great knowledge of ceremonies, makes you very comfortable throughout the process and delivers a great end product!

Elisa created a wedding ceremony that fit us perfectly. She was wonderful to work with, and from the beginning was warm, down to earth and a professional. It's been weeks and we still have friends and family telling us how moving and emotional and happy our wedding ceremony was. We had no idea what a custom crafted ceremony would look like or sound like, or even feel like. It was wonderful, and it's all because we worked with Elisa.

Elisa provided us with a personal and thoughtful ceremony. She got to know us personally and took what she learned about our journey together and created a beautiful ceremony that our guests are still talking about. We did not want our guests to sit though yet another cookie cutter ceremony. The personalization and thought given by Elisa was immense. She is creative and puts that art into each individual ceremony she writes. We couldn't have asked for a better experience.

We can't enough good things about working with Elisa. We Loved the process of creating out ceremony and we felt that it really spoke to us and to those who knew us.

Because our ceremony was not the same old thing, people stopped and listened and felt involved and happy for us. So many people came up to us after the ceremony to ask how we found Elisa and we made a ceremoy so unique, warm and reak.

We really did not have to worry about anything, every little thing was organized and easy. Finding the right person to do our ceremony because we are not overly religious was difficult, but choosing Elisa was easy! From our first meeting, we knew this was going to be perfect and it was.

I could write pages about how wonderful Elisa was to work with. She is sweet, funny, talented, and she wrote a heck of a ceremony. Everyone commented on how original, personal, and beautiful our ceremony was. Elisa went above and beyond on our wedding day. Our wedding was outside, it poured GALLONS of water, and she kicked off her shoes and helped us rearrange everything so that we could get married in our tent. She was amazing. I cannot recommend this woman more highly. You will love her, you will love your ceremony, and you will never forget your incredible wedding day. Thank you for everything, Elisa!

Hi Shannon- thank you so much for reviewing me on Wedding Wire. I will never forget the beauty that showed right through the rain that blessed your wedding day. Whenever I see yellow and grey wedding decorations I think of the beauty of the park and the pavilion and what an awesome day you had!

I contact Elisa because I had read a lot of good things about her out on some wedding websites and on her website, and I was really impressed with the great things people had to say. From the moment I met her till this day, it was the best decision I made about my wedding. We loved how approachable and easy it was working with Elisa but also that she thought of details and kept track of things we never would have remembered. I thought about my wedding as all about the reception, but during our ceremony I realized, its about our wedding, our promises, and it's about our relationship, and realized that Elisa's advise was always 100% right, and her belief in a meaningful ceremony was totally inspiring and true. You will like Elisa right away, but when she does your ceremony, she will blow you and your friends and family away. Its all true, a meaningful ceremony is the best thing you can do to create a fantastic wedding day!

Elisa is the most wonderful celebrant we could have imagined finding. She is sensitive, warm and sincere and she is so easy to work with! Our wedding was just awesome! Somehow she found the right words to express how we feel about each other. Elisa was very accomodating with all of our needs and requests. She effortlessly worked our personal life stories into the services and made our guests feel like they were part of our Special Day. I would recommend Eisa to any couple. Thank you!!

We are not the typical couple, and working with Elisa, we got a lot more than the typical wedding experience. Top notch experience. Elisa create a ceremony that exceeded our expectations, and set the tone for our entire evening. She was on top of every detail. We did not have to worry about a thing. For 2 type A people, it was amazing how easy it was to work with Elisa. I can't say enough about the level of care she pays to everything, from the words in her perfect ceremony, to the details of our day, to going out of her way to make sure our friends and loved ones were comfortable during our rehearsal and into the day of our ceremony. We could not have asked for more!

Jaime and I found Elisa quite by chance - We had hired a different officiant who suddenly found she was unable to do our ceremony. She quickly and without hesitation recommended we contact Elisa and it was KISMET!!! We could swear from our first meeting that it was the match my future wife and I were meant to make with our officiant. As a same sex couple, it was critical to us that our officiant was comfortable with us as a unit, but also understood the value of our rights, and how monumental this step was for us. She was clearly going to be one of our cheerleaders from moment one!!! She was professional, but never detached. She was organized and to the point, but never unable to share her bright personality and wit, or her friendly support. She was available all the time to answer any old crazy questions. She calmed me down and reminded me to "just breathe". When we read though the final draft of our ceremony, we knew that she had heard us talk about who we are, our families, what the wedding meant to us, and she managed to fit it ALL in to our exquisite 30 minute ceremony - readings and all.

The day of the wedding, I was a nervous wreck. Elisa transitioned smoothly between her officiant role and her support/friendship role and helped me focus, calm down and take in this most important day. I will never be able to express my gratitude in enough words, and I know Jaime feels the same.

I hope that Elisa and I remain in touch for a very long time - Her spirit soars, she is so bright and loving and is someone I consider a welcome and much needed addition to my spiritual and personal family.

Thank you Elisa!!!!

Elisa was outstanding - she provided us with an incredible, personalized ceremony that is unmatched in comparison to what we would have received from a JP or other officiant. She was thoughtful, fun, energetic and very creative. She truly did listen to what we described we wanted from our wedding ceremony and created exactly that. We truly couldn't have picked a better person to marry us, and help us start our lives together.

I know it looks almost fake to see all 5's for my rating and I was almost uncomfortable doing it, but Elisa was amazing and I knew writing an explanation would help. Me and my husband are from different states and Glastonbury was in the middle, making is the most convienent place for our friends and family to meet for our wedding. She not only worked through the struggles of us normally being in two different places, she helped us make sure we knew how to get ready in Glastonbury and she also developed a ceremony that made us feel like it was one of our closest friends celebrating our love with us. My wedding day was my dream come true for so many reasons, but Elisa definitely played a part in making it so special....our wedding was very small, but every guest that was there mentioned how great the ceremony was.

Elise was everything we had hoped for. First off, she gave an extensive interview in re: what kind of couple we were, how we met, what motivated us in life. She gave us suggestions and guidance but never made made judge mentor forced us one way or the other. From the moment we met Elise, we enjoyed every bit of the process. It wasn't exactly clear in the beginning what the end result would be which for some might seem scary. Quite the contrary, it allowed us to really think about what our wedding day meant to us. I have such a wonderful memory of constructing the ceremony with Elise, that I asked my husband if we could do it again this year! HA! Elise is the best!

Elisa is a welcoming and open individual who was truly invested in our happiness throughout the entire process. Because we live in NH, we were able to talk on the telephone and write emails to plan our service. Although she was performing the legal ceremony, she catered it to our needs, and made sure we were comfortable with all language and intentions. We would HIGHLY recommend her to anyone seeking to be legally joined.

When we met Elisa, we immediately felt like we'd known her all our lives. She was excited about our wedding & our love story. I'd written up my own ceremony, but she said she'd alter it in a positive way. We hired her on the spot in October for our May wedding.

Unfortunately, there were several things that we were unsatisfied with after that point. Trying to get in touch with her is generally best through Facebook - her site email server, at one point, totally malfunctioned. She didn't have our ceremony written until 3 and a half weeks before the ceremony, despite an earlier request for it so that we could purchase the tools needed for it (sand ceremony vases, handfasting cords, etc.) To her credit, the ceremony was beautifully written and made me tear up. I did have to correct multiple spelling and grammar errors, but I'm an English teacher.

For our rehearsal, she had to cancel due to another wedding she was officiating having a major delay. The delay was a tragic and reasonable delay - we have no issue with that - but she said she'd send her assistant to conduct the rehearsal. The assistant never showed, nor did we get a call telling us the assistant wouldn't show. We waited as long as we could, then we conducted the rehearsal mostly thanks to our wedding contact at the Spa at Norwich, Jill.

On wedding day, Elisa showed up and conducted her duties, but mispronounced our new last name at the beginning and end of the ceremony, despite our DJ telling her exactly how to pronounce it. (Our DJ wrote down a phonetic spelling of our name. It's a ONE SYLLABLE name.) She did not ask for our wedding license, though I had it on hand. I had to meet her a few days later to give her the license to file so that we were legally married. Apart from mispronouncing our name, she was delightful and helpful on the day of the ceremony.

For this service, we paid $750. That amount is far too expensive to have the first moment of your married life start with someone mispronouncing your name.
I like this officiant very much as a person but, due to the problems above, I would not recommend this vendor to another bride.
