    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.

    Not a Dry Eye in the House

    Dr. Patsy Branch (formerly Watson) of Rev. Cory Newell and Associates officiated our wedding on 10/28/23. She did an absolutely beautiful job officiating our ceremony and we received so many compliments from our guests about her lovely words. There were not many dry eyes in the room. She did a great job making the ceremony feel personal to us and she was also so much fun! It was truly a pleasure to work with her.

    Great experience

    We worked through Cory to hire Chuck Daniel as our officiant and he made the experience quick and easy! Our ceremony was not particularly complicated but Chuck met with us as needed beforehand to nail down details, arrived nice and early the day of, and our ceremony went off without a hitch!

    Cory did an amazing job! He listened to us as a couple and made our ceremony unique and personal. Our friends and family all commented on how much they loved Cory and how great the ceremony was. We feel lucky that Cory was a part of our special day.

    Paid for a sign and go, received much more!!

    I searched online everywhere for high rated officiants to do a quick sign and go for legalize the marriage so we could do a ceremony when the time was right for us. Found Cory and was happy to schedule with him as the cheapest available for such short notice. Met with him as arranged at a convenient local location, and surprisingly he held an entire brief service with us completely unexpectedly. Was extremely kind and friendly with both my new wife and I and went above and beyond to make a simple signature of legal paperwork a memorable, heartwarming ceremony and offered to take pictures of the new couple in front of the water. Absolutely deserves the 5 stars and beyond, if you see this Mr Newell, thank you so much

    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.

    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!

    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.

    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.
