    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’t 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.

    Thank you, Chaplain Will

    We thoroughly enjoyed having Chaplain Will preside over our ceremony. He took the time prior to the wedding to get to know us and out back story and made sure to include little bits of that in our service. He cracked jokes to lighten the mood and was an overall calming presence to a stressful day. I'd highly recommend him to anyone.

    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!

    Rev. Cory & Chaplain Will Made for the Perfect Wedding Experience!

    Reverend Cory & Chaplain Will were amazing to work with in preparation for our October 2022 wedding. Their dashboard was easy to work with and communicate with the team. Chaplain Will was very kind and a pleasure to work with. He created a unique, heartfelt ceremony specific to my husband and I; he also coordinated very well with our day-of coordinator which helped the day go perfectly.

    Amazing work wouldn’t pick anybody else!

    I got married September 24 and Rev. Charles Daniel did our ceremony. From the moment I found the site it was 100% stress free! Everything is super simple to do. They basically take care of any and everything you need. He even typed up and printed out my vows for me. His energy was amazing at the ceremony. My family absolutely loved him. He had my whole family ready to use him for their weddings. I can’t thank him enough for the help and joy he showed everybody.

    Above and beyond

    First of all I was suppose to have Cory but something happened and he quickly set me up with his associate Reverend Watson. She was amazing. She did the interview over the phone and together we came up with the perfect ceremony. She called a few times before the wedding to make sure everything was good. Then the night before I got a quick text asking me if I had questions and if everything was good. The day off she was amazing and it was a beautiful wedding. She emailed me her words which were so beautiful I wanted to keep them close. I would recommend her to anyone.

    My wife and I were able to book Cory through "The Knot", and we also witness him marry our best friends. Cory is awesome! From keeping everyone engaged to making it romantic for us as well. I would highly recommend him for anyone looking for someone that can mesh with you regardless of what you are looking for!

    Great wedding experience

    Great overall experience! He was very responsive to any questions or concerns we had. He did a thorough zoom meeting with us, the rehearsal, and the actual ceremony. The ceremony was what we wanted; lighthearted but still important. Everyone is still talking about how much they enjoyed the actual ceremony party of our wedding and how great our pastor was. Thank you so much for making this such a great experience!
