Cory made our wedding unforgettable. He made our story come to life. It was a journey we will never forget. People talked about his service the whole night. If you are ever in need of an officiant for a wedding, Cory is the man you want. He will make your day absolutely amazing.
Very easy to work with, reasonable price, great communication and very friendly!

My wife and I can’t thank Cory enough for all the joy he brought to us and are families. Cory will invest his time and compassion as if it was his last ceremony. This is a one time experience for two, that only comes once in a life time. Don’t do it without Rev. Cory Newell.

Pastor Cory did a flawless job officiating our wedding. From the first e-mail we sent to him, he was quick to respond, warm, and interested in hearing about our story and our vision for a ceremony. We asked for a ceremony that was both humorous and also romantic, he provided exactly that. He had our guests fluctuating between laughter and tearing up at his beautiful, sentimental commentary . We have received countless compliments from our attendants stating how engaging and entertaining his ceremony was and we have to agree. Pastor Cory made our very special day, happier and more memorable with his incredible presence and officiating - we cannot recommend him enough!

Absolutely amazing!! Hire them!!!
My friends had Reverend Cory marry them a couple years back so when we got engaged I knew I wanted to hire him for our wedding. I remembered how fun and exciting and emotional her ceremony was and i knew i wanted the same. Out of all the weddings i had attended that was my favorite ceremony. When i signed the contract Reverend Cory had another contract come in before mine so i was upset he wasn’t available BUT little did i know he has a team of associates and we had the pleasure of having Reverend Chuck as our officiant. We live in Richmond and they are in Newport News so it was difficult to meet in person so we did a video chat with him and we fell in love right away! He has the best personality and humor and we knew we were in good hands. He was so personable and always responded within the hour by text or email when i had any questions. We couldn’t have imagined a better ceremony. Reverend Chuck did such an amazing job i can’t even put into words how perfect it was!! We got so many compliments all night and after from our guests saying it was one of the most fun and best ceremonies they’ve ever been to! It was amazing how he was able to capture our love from a 5-10 minute video chat and questionnaires and turned our ceremony into something so beautiful and fun at the same time.

The best ever!
We are at a lost for words on Pastor Cory’s service for our wedding !! He was the best officiant I’ve ever witnessed. Not only was he professional but has a great sense of humor. My guest are still sending text about how AMAZING PASTOR CORY IS, and asking for his information !! Thank you so much for bringing so much life to our day. Everything we wanted he made happen. With great gratitude we thank you.

All of our guests have been talking about our ceremony since our wedding. Everyone absolutely loved how Cory shared our love story and involved our guests.
Cory loves love and it shows.

The Best Service!
Cory was amazing and made our day truly spectacular! We had so many guests, after the ceremony, tell us how it was the best wedding ceremony they'd ever been to! Cory's engagement with the crowd, and his upbeat, positive energy, made it a service to remember forever. A consummate professional, and overall amazing person. Thank you, Cory!

Simply the best
If you want personal commitment and a connection, then Pastor Cory is the only choice. Just amazed with the ability of this young man. He's flexible, personable, caring, and has a big heart. He connected with all our guests on some level. Certainly like a true family friend that you do not want to go away.

Pastor Corey has a beautiful spirit,heart,energy,and spoke nothing but the truth and straight from his heart. Our guest all were happy with how he did our ceremony and some of them asked of his name so that he can do there wedding too! So with that said I must say that he is the greatest! Thanks again Pastor Corey!

Cory did such a great job with everything. In a world full of hatred, he made my wife and I feel very welcomed and comfortable.
Shaakira · Married on 10/18/2018
We love Reverend Newell!!
I know from the day I met him at my friends wedding that I would choose him to be our officiant. He is so nice and professional, and pulled emotions from us we didn’t know we had. He made our ceremony fun and upbeat and had the crowd involved. You will not regret choosing him. He is the best!

Better than I could have dreamed
Cory was amazing! He made sure everyone laughed, cried, felt like they had a part in the ceremony, but most of all he let our wedding be ours and something we won't forget for the rest of our lives. Thank you so much Cory!

Best Pastor in Hampton Roads!
Pastor Cory was fantastic. We had multiple guests come up to us after the ceremony to tell us how much they enjoyed the ceremony and many of them said it was the best one they had been to. Pastor Cory was funny, engaging and was able to add in a touch of our personality to our big day. Pastor Cory helped to make our day one of the most memorable and best days of our lives. We would highly recommend. He for sure is the best in the Hampton Roads area!
Allison · Married on 10/13/2018
Cory was wonderful to work with, even after suffering a head trauma after a major accident. We are so incredibly thankful he was able to sti join us on our special day. He incorporated so many meaningful things in our ceremony and kept everything romantic with a nice jovial touch. Definitely reccomend!

Cory and associates did a wonderful job being corroperatove and responding quickly to any messages I sent out. Payments are easily done online, and the price is not bad. Dr Watson performed our ceremony in October 2018, and I could not have been happier with her! Even though we were unable to meet her before our wedding day, the ceremony still felt personal, and loving.
