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

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

Pastor Cory gave us the greatest advice and his words were everything I ever wanted to hear. Thank you pastor Cory you made my wedding day so special and just after a week after me and Michael wedding we are expecting our first baby. Every month on the 18th I will celebrate this moment with my husband because Aug 18th 2020 is our special day.

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
Rev. Cory Newell and Associates's reply:Your wedding was so very unique to me with so many different elements. Getting to know you two was the joy in all of this process though. Thanks for saying such kind words. Much love and blessing to you both.

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

We used Rev. Charles Daniel for our ceremony on 10/24, and he was amazing! We spoke on the phone before the ceremony. He emailed us copies of 'repeat after me' vows since we wanted to be able to each say something different but did not want to write our own vows. Day of, he came early and met with me and then my husband. He was laid back and fun during the ceremony. Would recommend him for anyone needing an officiant!Sent on 11/12/2020

Dr. Watson did a wonderful job with our ceremony! She was very professional and had the perfect touch of personalization. Dr. Watson has such a beautiful tone to her voice, one of my bridesmaids said she should do podcasts or voice recordings! We were very happy with our choice!!Sent on 12/08/2020
