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.
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.

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.

My daughter’s wedding ceremony could not have been any better! Cory was interactive with the guests and personalized the ceremony. Guests at the reception kept commenting that this was the best wedding they have ever attended. Thank you again Cory for making Maddie’s day memorable ❤️

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!

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.

Our out of the Ordinary Wedding
Rev. Cory was amazing! We couldn’t have asked for anyone better. He rolled with the chaos that my friends and family supplied and then with our dogs roaming around managed to include them into the Ceremony. If we could give more stars we definitely would. He deserves way more than he asks for. Thank you soo very much for everything you did for us!

Elliot Stevens · Married on 11/25/2018
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.

Awesome and perfect
He is organized person. He did a perfect job.
Ashleigh · Married on 11/17/2018
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.
