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

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

This company was wonderful to work with! We had to postpone our wedding multiple times due to COVID, but they made it so easy to change dates and were very understanding. Our officiant was Rev. Charles and he was so great throughout the whole process. Highly recommend!Sent on 05/12/2021

Rev. Cory is great with couples!!
Our experience with Rev. Cory was great and memorable. From the beginning I could tell he was the right person to be part of our adventure eloping to another State. He has charisma and instantly broke the ice when we talked to get to know us a bit. We loved and needed someone like him to make us feel confortable in the ceremony. I absolutely loved the personalized vows he wrote for us and included part of our history together. He was kind and funny at the same time, my fiancé and I almost cried with his words and advise as a new married couple. I will definitely recommend him. I’m a happy he gave us a copy of the personalized vows he wrote. Thank you Rev. Cory.Sent on 05/13/2021

Above and beyond expectations!
Pastor Cory was amazing at our wedding and felt like one of the family. The way he took our love story and incorporated it with his sermon was incredible! Some family members said it was something you’d hear or see in a romantic comedy movie. My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed getting to know and work with Pastor Cory and highly recommend his services to everyone. He will not disappoint. He was the true MVP on our wedding day.Sent on 03/30/2021

If you are looking for a personalized ceremony for your wedding, book pastor Cory! He is great and spent time getting to know my husband and I. He really does care about each of his couples. He even incorporated our favorite show into our ceremony. He was professional, timely and responsive. This was one wedding vendor we did not have to stress about.Sent on 11/30/2020

He Will Plan Everything For You!
Cory was great! He came from out of town to Richmond to have the service in my dream location. He always answered emails quickly and planned my whole ceremony perfectly when I did not know what I really wanted. It was perfect!Sent on 10/30/2019

Simply the best!
Cory was very professional, flexible, knowledgeable and fun. He made our special day perfect. We had planned for a specific date and due to unforeseen world events, we didn't know if we would be able to keep the date. We were able to get our license at the last minute and Cory was the first officiant that I called. I just knew that he would be the right choice for us. He kept in close contact, was flexible and tailored the ceremony to our beliefs and personalities. We highly recommend him.Sent on 05/12/2020

Special Ceremony and Communion by Rev. Cory
We had a very special request for Rev. Cory that he helped make possible! It meant a lot for my now husband and I to have some close to us officiate our wedding, but the city we got married in would not acknowledge and online ordained minister. Our florist, Jeff's Flowers in Newport News, recommended Cory to us and he helped us put a very special ceremony together. My father officiated our wedding while Cory observed the ceremony and signed our marriage license. We also wanted to take communion together before our wedding which was a little complicated because we didn't want to do a "first look". Cory worked with our wedding coordinator to make the communion happen and the pictures are beautiful! He was also very punctual and comforting the unavoidably stressful wedding day. We sincerely appreciate all of his help and professionalism in making our day extra special!Sent on 11/23/2020
