Lesbian and Gay Weddings Officiant, Elisa Chase of Tapestry Ceremonies

The time has come, and you are planning the wedding of your dreams. Tapestry Ceremonies wants to be right there with you!


You have a special and unique bond, often forged against the backdrop of public opinion. Your wedding is a joyful, meaningful, wonderful celebration. You deserve someone who will take care of you and your ceremony, and everyone involved or attending.  A Vote and a Vow, White Knot, Purple Union and 16 Stories certified, we take great care in providing exceptional service.

Marriage Equality is personal to me

Marriage equality is more than a legal status. Honestly, it’s one of the reasons I became a Celebrant and formed Tapestry Ceremonies. As the Mother of a beautiful gay daughter, I have been active in the Marriage Equality movement for a long time.

I’m down to earth and approachable, a little bit of a renegade, with a contemporary perspective and a warm heart. My wedding practice is focused on YOU. I will always be your advocate. We screen all the vendors we work with to ensure that we only recommend companies who embrace the same values. Connecticut is largely a progressive state, but we are diligent in our screening process and we ask very direct questions of everyone we work with. When the Producers of the Showtime series “The Real L Word” were looking for an officiant for the legal wedding of Whitney and Sara, they carefully screened their alternatives. I was proud to be chosen to perform the ceremony that appeared in Season 3, episode 8 and to be part of Whitney and Sara’s wedding experience.  I am proud to serve and be a part of all of my weddings.

Dear Elisa- Thank you for helping us experience a wedding ceremony that transcended all our idea's of what a wedding is "supposed to be". Thank you for inspiring us to speak our truths and to be willing to truly share our love in front of those that mean the most to us. Everyone is still talking about the magic of our wedding.

Kevin and Chris
