    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. 😍

    Perfect ceremony

    Thanks to Rev CD (Rev Chuck Daniels) we had the most perfect ceremony. We were so worried when we learned our family friend could not perform our ceremony and we would need to hire someone. Luckily we found this amazing company and got paired with Chuck. He was available to us whenever we needed him, answered al of our questions, and eased our worries. He had such a great energy and personality. We loved meeting with him over Skype (a couple of times). At our ceremony, he was an incredible presence. He made us feel calm, and lead the most beautiful ceremony, even in the 100+ heat! We can’t thank him or recommend him enough!

    Wedding Officiant

    Pastor Corey was amazing! Even though we had some mishaps on the day of rehearsal he made it his obligation to serve us to the best of his ability. On our wedding day he went above and beyond which drew our guest into the ceremony and everyone loved his energy!!!

    Pastor Cory

    Pastor Cory brought our wedding ceremony to life! He was energetic, enthusiastic, and made sure the guests knew how special they were to us. From start to finish in the planning phases and the day of the wedding, Pastor Cory answered all questions we had without hesitation. It truly felt like we were being married by a lifelong friend. He takes the time to get to know you and your relationship! The guests loved him just as much as we did!

    Simply the Best

    Pastor Cory went above and beyond to give us the ceremony of our dreams. We were looking for a non-traditional, fun, yet meaningful ceremony that would be remembered. Pastor Cory exceeded these expectations. He met sent us surveys to get an idea of what we wanted. We met him a few months prior where he asked about our story. He wanted to get to know us as well as our family and friends. He didn't ask just the basic questions (how did you meet?, first date?, etc.). He asked why we loved a certain body part, what makes the other so special. He understood that it was important for our daughter to be included in the ceremony. He wrote special vows for my husband to say to her. He quoted Disney movies which the kids at the wedding loved, but had a significant meaning to marriage. Our guests all commented on how our wedding was unique and unforgettable. Pastor Cory has no cookie-cutter ceremony. He cares about what you want and do not want. He makes you feel comfortable from the first interaction to the final good-bye. He was on time for our rehearsal and made everyone feel at ease with the timeline. My husband is introverted, but Pastor Cory helped him feel comfortable which is an accomplishment very few people can achieve. He was very fairly priced for all of his services. We would choose him again and again without hesitation. Thank you Pastor Cory for giving us a wedding that surpassed our dreams.

    Cory Newell is an AMAZING pastor!

    Cory was amazing at our wedding! We loved the story he wrote about us and love that he included family and friends in the service. We really wanted to include our children in the ceremony and he came up with a wonderful idea to make them feel included. We loved our family prayer and know the kids loved it, too! He has so much energy and passion for what he does. He was so easy to work with and we truly enjoyed just talking with him. I highly recommend him!! He made us feel special and our ceremony is exactly what we envisioned! THANK YOU CORY!!

    Thank you, Pastor Cory!

    Pastor Cory was absolutely perfect and charismatic during our marriage ceremony! Not only was he super professional, but he did an excellent job at bringing in the romance, emotion, and humor at the most appropriate moments. My husband and I truly couldn't have imagined anyone else being our officiant for our ceremony because everything he did and said was just right. To top that off, our guests absolutely loved Pastor Cory and made many positive comments to us during and after the reception! We are very blessed to have found him.

I would highly recommend him! You would not be disappointed!

    Perfect sunset wedding

    Pastor Cory was perfect for our wedding ceremony. He took the time to get to know us so our vows were perfect! We live a few hours away from where we got married, but pastor Cory was very good at keeping in contact with us and making sure our day went smoothly. We could not imagine a more perfect ceremony.

    Best Wedding Officiant EVER!

    We had such a fun time with Cory! He really took the time to get to know us as a couple, and he made some great suggestions to fit the ceremony to our requests perfectly! We are very lucky to have had him as one of our vendors, but also as a lifelong friend!

    Pastor Cory's "Labor" on Labor Day Weekend

    Pastor Cory is as energetic as you may imagine him to be! He definitely knows how to get the crowd going and keeps a smile on your face (you barely even remember how nervous you are!) I appreciated his ability to communicate well in advance through the planning process, and at no point in time did I worry that my ceremony would not come together nicely. Pastor Cory is a great combination of traditional and non-traditional. He told me he usually runs a more non-traditionally religious ceremony, but he still kept the ceremony solemn at the right moments, and accommodated any traditions and bible verses that we wished to include in the ceremony. He is very personable and willing to work with you to make your ceremony perfect. I am very grateful to have had him as our celebrant for our special day!

    Rev. Cory Newell wasnt just an amazing officiant. He took the time needed to understand the bride and grooms desires and requests. Actually went out of his way to make sure they were happy. Will be recommending Rev. Cory to everyone!

    Our guests are still raving about Cory!

    We booked Cory for a small, backyard wedding on a Sunday evening without a lot of notice at all. Right off the bat I knew that he was perfect for the laid back, informal, nontraditional wedding that we envisioned. He is great at what he does, very personable and very passionate about your wedding. Although we knew we were not the only couple that he was working with on their wedding, he made us feel as if we were. We had a lot of laughs (and tears) during our ceremony. Our guests are still talking about how much they loved Cory!

    A Perfect Wedding

    We are over the moon with how magical our wedding was! Cory was the perfect Pastor! His heartfelt energy and care for us as a couple was felt by the entire room. All night our guests told us how incredible his ceremony was and asked how they could have him at their own weddings. Cory treated us like the only couple he had all year. We especially enjoyed our counseling and pre-marriage time with him. Cory is more than the officiant who married us, we consider him a lifelong friend.

    A Ceremony Perfect in Every Way

    If you and your significant other are considering hiring Rev. Cory to officiate your wedding, DO IT! As a member of the LGBTQIA+ community, part of my search to find an officiant included finding someone who wouldn’t bat an eye at marrying a lesbian couple. Not only did Rev. Cory not bat an eye, but he also welcomed us with open arms. Before the big day, he works with his couples to find a meeting time either in person or on Skype where he can learn about the couple and discuss what they desire to have in the ceremony. Although Rev. Cory has a religious background, what I love so much about him is that he’s adamantly devoted to respecting the views and desires of the couple. Rev. Cory guided me and my wife to create a ceremony personal to us that incorporated our loved ones. Rev. Cory gave a beautiful ceremony that kept my guests captivated with many of them coming up to us to rave about him after! Without a doubt, Rev. Cory was worth every penny!

    #1 wedding officiant

    Cory was amazing and created the ceremony of our dreams! He was comical yet professional and kept our guests involved in a meaningful way. He also lead our rehearsal and assured that our ceremony went perfectly despite our less than great wedding planner. He is worth the price!
