Share your Love Story
The best thing about Pastor Cory is that he cares about your story. When my wife and I first sat down with him for our initial interview over lunch he spent about two hours getting to know us on a deeper level but we were having so much fun that it felt like we had only been there for ten minutes when the check came. Fast forward two weeks and it is the day of our rehearsal. Pastor Cory was on time, efficient in getting all our people organized, and he had everyone in stitches the whole time. Finally, on the big day, Pastor Cory delivered a beautiful ceremony carefully tailored specifically to my wife and I that brought many happy tears to friends and family. Oh, and not to mention he managed to make all of these wonderful memories for us in the midst of a global pandemic and strict state restrictions! We cannot give a higher recommendation of a service to trust with your big day!Sent on 09/12/2020

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

Perfectly tailored ceremony
The whole process from starting with Rev. Cory's website and forms to deciding on our officiant to the big day was seamless. Chaplain Will was amazing in including just the right amount of religious notations to our ceremony while still keeping it light hearted and fun. He helped keep us relaxed during the ceremony and made it perfect!Sent on 11/03/2020
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!
