    I had an elopement and only 10 people were there. My family dreaded the thought of sitting through a boring officiant. Rev. Cory Newell WOWed everyone with how entertaining and fun he was. My family and I enjoyed every word he had crafted into our ceremony. He incorporated Disney quotes which were very well put and made everyone laugh. I would suggest him to anyone, young or old. He made me feel he had known us for many years. He was worth every penny.

    Very helpful and patient!

    This was all planned out very last minute, as in the week of. Cory was so sweet and very helpful before he passed me on to Reverend Charles. He was very patient with my ADHD brains questions (questions drawn out and confusing about times and locations). Reverend Charles was very patient and kind when it came to trying to get the license signed. We had some (a lot of) car troubles. My parents couldn鈥檛 find a car to rent so we had to take an Uber (an Uber to my own wedding lol, that still cracks me up). So instead of the wedding being at 4:00pm we had it at 5ish. I had called earlier to tell him that it would be around 5:30 instead of 4:30 and he said that was fine. Well we had hit traffic, I should say that a friend was able to take us to the signing. We had actually gotten there at 6:14 instead because of traffic, but he was so patient with us and our bad luck at transportation. We were able to get the license signed and have a great night with friends and family! You guys are more patient than humanly possible and I thank you for that!

    Absolutely amazing

    We had the best experience working with Rev. Charles. He got to know our love story and incorporated the details in his readings during our ceremony. The ceremony brought everyone to tears! He is so friendly and easy to work with. I would give him more than 5 stars if I could, I 100% recommend working with him.

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!
