The perfect moment
We hired Corey for our elopement ceremony and are so happy we did. My wife is Christian and I am pagan. Corey knew this and worked hard to create a ceremony that blessed our marriage with Christian prayer, but also respected my beliefs. He made us laugh and cry and wrote the perfect vows for us as a couple. He even used a phrase that means so much to us without even telling him what it is and what it means. We couldn't be happier with the moment we shared on the beach and he gave us a copy of the ceremony to keep. We're absolutely thrilled.Sent on 10/15/2019

Look no further....
Rev. Cory was amazing to work with from start to finish. We met in March for our wedding that was in October and we felt that he truly got to know us and actually took the time to portray our story as best he could. He always answered promptly and professionally to any questions that we had. We have been married for two week now and our guests are still complimenting how well he did and how lively he made the ceremony. Rev. Cory keeps it interesting, keeps your guests involved and truly tailors his words to fit your love story. I highly recommend booking him as soon as you can! It was the best choice that we ever made! Thank you again for making our day so special!Sent on 10/20/2019

Made the best day even better.
Mr. Newell made the best day of my life and my wife’s even better with his words, demeanor, and professionalism. He was on time and very polite. He made sure everything was as how we wanted, asking questions I never even thought to, and gave everyone a calm feeling on a day where we may have otherwise been anxious. I can’t recommend him enough!Sent on 10/11/2019

A wonderful speaker!
Cory has such energy when speaking I felt like he had control of the whole crowd during the entire ceremony. He evoked tears, joy and knew when to break the emotions with a fun joke! I’m really glad we chose him as our pastor!Sent on 10/09/2019

Cory is a Pro
I take forever to make a decision and I tend to research things meticulously prior to moving forward with a decision, especially something as important as my wedding day. After much research we decided to hire Cory to officiate our wedding, and it was one of the best decisions we made!! He made sure to walk us through the process of the ceremony step by step and did a wonderful job incorporating all of our wishes for our ceremony day- he was engaging to our guests (and us!), lighthearted, but also was able to set a romantic tone to our ceremony. He knows what he is doing and we had several guests ask us where we found him! Very pleased and so happy we decided to work with Cory.Sent on 10/07/2019

At last, our day has come
At last our day has come, a day to remember and cherish in our hearts and minds. As my husband and I reminisced over our beautiful ceremony, we sang Rev. Coreys' praises. He was amazing. We are not religious and we wanted a private ceremony outside, just the Bride, Groom and Rev. Awesome!Sent on 11/19/2019
He found us a beautiful gazebo and truly made our wedding special and surpassed our expectations at every turn
He will be in our memories and hearts for the rest of our lives.

The ceremony you want to be at
Cory is one of the most energetic, yet professional and appropriate wedding officiants I have ever experienced. He builds and extremely personalized wedding ceremony, along w/ his energy, he has tons of fun tools and tricks to keep your guests engaged, and he helps you with any wedding advice you need beyond just the ceremony. Having seen him once before, he was the only choice in my mind for my wedding.Sent on 11/12/2019

We love Pastor Cory!
Guests are still telling us how much they loved Pastor Cory and his message. He made our wedding experience fun and took away all of our anxiousness as we stood before our large crowd. I love that he personalizes his message and was able to share our love story with guests. I would recommend him 1000x over. One of the best investments we made for our wedding!Sent on 09/20/2019

We had the pleasure of working with Pastor Cory who met all of our expectations when it comes to officiating a religious ceremony with us. He took the time to get to know us and was flexible in doing so since we were communicating long distance. He has a humorous personality which worked perfectly for us because we are a cheesy couple and let’s be honest who likes a firm and no laughing wedding? Nobody !!
Not only that but he always answered our questions when we had some, and he kept our guests engaged during the ceremony . He made sure that he also took the the time to get to know our bridal party and gave multiple opportunities to be further engaged in the ceremony process. If your looking for an officiant who will not only get to know you as a couple, and keep things light while addressing your questions and ensuring you the best wedding possible, then Pastor Cory Newell is your guy!
Thank you for everything Pastor Cory!
Sincerely- The Medina’sSent on 09/03/2019

Personable & Professional
Cory, thank you so much for being apart of our special day! I had totally forgotten it was a holiday weekend and traffic was crazy! Many of our guests (bride included!) got stuck in some of Hampton Roads worst moments on a beautiful sunny Saturday of a long weekend. Not only was our ceremony short and sweet, yet meaningful and welcoming, Cory made sure the (8 month pregnant) bride was hydrated and happy! For a ceremony planned in less than 2 months for 25 people, Cory truly helped our day go by smoothly. He was very affordable and super supportive in our decisions with planning! Our day is definitely one to remember. Thanks for everything Cory and team!Sent on 09/11/2019

Great Wedding Ceremony by Pastor Cory aboard the Spirit of Norfolk
Rev Cory Newell provided an excellent wedding service. All comments from my guests were very positive. Rev Cory was energetic and incorporated many details about our lives and how we met during the ceremony. Rev Cory made the event special, not only to our guests, but to my Husband and me. It was a very special, professional, and meaningful ceremony!
Thanks again, Dave and ChrisSent on 08/19/2019

Pastor Cory exceeded our expectations.
Pastor Cory was so personable, kind, and passionate in assuring that we had a wonderful and memorable wedding day experience. My husband and I along with our wedding guests felt blessed that we chose him. His warmth and attentiveness made us immediately feel he was a family member and the normal nervousness he calmed. Without question you will be very pleased if you choose Rev. Cory Newell and Associates. Rev. Cory comes highly recommended. 😍Sent on 08/01/2019
