Absolutely Amazing! Pastor Cory made our Covid Ceremony Incredible!
Can't recommend Pastor Cory enough! Even having to do a facebook live ceremony because covid changed our plans. He made a light heartfelt and fun ceremony for us. We happened to have found out about Pastor Cory, through mutual friends. Best decision ever. We gave him total free range, he wrote our vows and made fun references from comedy and super hero movies. Everything couldn't have been more perfect. We're so glad we have a recording for forever. Those moments Pastor Cory created for us, will last a life time.Sent on 05/28/2020

Amazing experience with Cory!
Cory made us feel very special on our wedding day. He made sure to keep in touch, and verified all updates on time/location with me and my spouse. He is very organized and arrived to the wedding location right on time. Would definitely recommend to anyone looking to make their big day special!Sent on 09/23/2019
Any active duty military couple or preferred vendor referral.
Rev. Newell is absolutely phenomenal! I've had the pleasure of working with Cory a number of times over the years and, having photographed more than 200 weddings all over VA and beyond, he is The Best! Let me say that again, THE BEST! He truly cares about his couples and it shows. He brings so much energy and passion to the moment. I absolutely love how he engages the guests during the ceremony. He'll have everyone laughing one moment; tearing up the next, and moments later he'll have everyone laughing again. It is what every wedding ceremony should be: joyous, touching, fun, and all about the love of family and friends! You need to book him and book him now!
