Outstanding experience overall!
Pastor Cory was literally a godsend for us. We live in Norfolk but were celebrating our honeymoon in a very non-traditional way, by vacationing together before the wedding instead of after. We fiancé and I spent almost a week together in Ocean City and Rehobeth Beach, MD fully intending to get married there, with the scenic gentle ocean waves behind us as we read our vows. The only problem with that plan was that we didn’t expect the below freezing temperature and pouring rain! Instead, at the last minute we decided to drive back home late the night before our intended wedding day and pray that we could find a pastor that would be willing to marry us the NEXT DAY. We knew that we were expecting a miracle, and Pastor Cory was it. We first made contact with him at 7:44 pm and not only did he respond right away, but he committed to doing it by the next day! We worked out the location and exact time, the documents were sent electronically and everything was signed and paid for in advance. Everything that he sent us to read and sign was straightforward. The software was intuitive and easy to follow and before we knew it, we were all set and could actually breathe again and sleep easy the night before our Big Day.Sent on 03/10/2019
The morning of, we were on our way there when we got a text reminder from Pastor Cory to remember our marriage license (thank goodness) because we had to make a quick u-turn and raced home to get what we would have definitely forgotten because of the excitement of the day. We totally appreciated that one small thing and it’s just a testament to the attention to detail that he provides. We learned that he listens well, reads everything that you send him and incorporates it all into a very personalized ceremony.
Pastor Cory was at the location we chose right on time, with a big smile and extending a warm handshake and a hug. He helped to turn what could have been a very stressful time for us into a beautiful memory. His vows were perfect and light and filled with a casual feeling that mirrored who we are. He injected laughter and good vibes into all of it and after taking pictures of us, prayed for us and wished us well. And we were well; we had been married by Pastor Cory. We would recommend him to anyone that wants exactly what he offers online. He’s a 5-star real deal and we’re thrilled to know that every time we think of our special day, that he’s a part of it. It was a truly meaningful day, largely because of him. Pastor Cory, we thank you from the bottom of our hearts.

Professional, heartfelt, communicative, and caring
Cory has our highest recommendation. We loved the way he carried the ceremony, and the tone he set was light, funny, personal, and charismatic while simultaneously underlining the profoundness of two people getting married. He showed genuine interest and fascination in our love story and our love of one another, and it made us feel very special. He is a great story teller and made the ceremony flow nicely, keeping the guests attentive, engaged, and entertained. He was so relaxed and happy both before and during the ceremony, and it really helped put us at ease during the ceremony.Sent on 04/03/2019
We met with Cory over Skype for him to get to know us better and to discuss our wishes for the ceremony. It was a really nice and intimate session where my fiancé and I opened up to one another and where even some tears of joy were shed. Cory is really easy to talk to, and he asked well thought-out questions to find out exactly how we wanted the details of the ceremony to be. He carefully listened to all of our preferences, which were really easy to voice because he made us feel comfortable and trust that he would not judge them.
Cory even helped us out greatly last minute before the ceremony, making us feel well taken care of in a moment when we both were nervous and just wanted everything to turn out well. He even checked in with us the day after, and we really appreciated it!
We would not have wanted any other than Cory to be our officiant. Professional, heartfelt, communicative, and caring; we’d highly recommend him to anyone!

Beautiful intimate wedding
Pastor Cory was amazing! He was on time and very professional. He made sure I (the bride) was comfortable and did not need for anything on my special day. He was also well prepared. My husband wanted to share custom vows until the day of and pastor Cory had a backup set of vows for us.Sent on 03/19/2019

Reverend Cory Newell was an absolute pleasure to work with! We chose to use his fast sign service and could not be more pleased with how easy it was and how comfortable he made us feel during the entire process. He even went out of his way to meet us when we encountered a scheduling conflict. My husband and I would recommend Reverend Cory to anyone and am sure that all of his services go above and beyond!Sent on 03/11/2019

We were in a jam without a Pastor for our service and found this out the day before. Pastor Cory was recommended to us by the hotel which we were having our Wedding. When I called and told him what was going on through my tears the first thing he said to me was stop crying everything is going to be alright. He asked me some questions then said what time is the ceremony I told him 2:00 pm then he said I'll be there by 1:00 pm. Pastor Cory did exactly as he said he was going to do. We were married and all this would not have been possible that day if it was not for Pastor Cory helping us in our time of need. We love you Pastor Cory and no words could ever thank you enough for what you did for us on our Wedding Day. Thanks.Sent on 01/09/2019
