Performing

Elise sings at private events and wedding ceremonies in churches, chapels, gardens and living rooms in the Chicago area. Much of her work comes from referrals who not only appreciate her beautiful voice, but also her professional, friendly demeanor.

She can sing alone, with a pianist or a combo. Fees include travel, musicians and any time needed to prepare specific requests. See below for services and select testimonials, or read the many Wedding Wire reviews from her bridal fans.

Bride Testimonials:


“We were so happy to have Elise LaBarge provide the music for our wedding ceremony and cocktail hour. We had our wedding on August 15, 2014 at the Sofitel Hotel in Chicago.  Elise has a gorgeous soprano voice and with her pianist, was able to provide beautiful music for our wedding ceremony. She also sang at our cocktail hour with a 3 piece ensemble. I was very pleased that Elise was so easy to work with and highly professional. We feel very lucky to have had her as a part of our wedding day!” Sue~ Bride, 2014 

“Four years after our wedding, the main thing everyone still remembers is Elise’s beautiful voice. Her singing during our wedding ceremony brought me to tears. And as I watch the video, I was certainly not the only one. Not only did she nail the performance, but adapted the song to work in two languages so my Ecuadorian in-laws would understand the words. I couldn’t give a higher recommendation for Elise. She is a delight to work with and her voice is absolutely divine.” Dawn~ Bride, 2006

“When Elise started singing (Ave Maria), my husband-to-be and I looked at each other and both mouthed, “Wow! She’s good!”.  She was absolutely amazing…I would highly and unabashedly recommend Elise – I have never heard such a good singer at a wedding.” Vanessa~ Bride, 2007
