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!Sent on 11/28/2018

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.Sent on 12/12/2018

Bride and Groom
We had such a great experience with Rev. Cory Newell and associates. We worked with Bill and initially met him in one-on-one setting. He was professional, personable, and very open to our view on how we wanted our ceremony to progress. He communicated exactly his progression of events and we decided if we were in favor or not. The actual ceremony went flawlessly. Multiple guests commented how great the ceremony was compared to other weddings they have attended. They mentioned how it was personable, yet professional and efficient. We really were impressed with Bill and so happy he was apart of our day.Sent on 12/18/2018

The Best Service!
Cory was amazing and made our day truly spectacular! We had so many guests, after the ceremony, tell us how it was the best wedding ceremony they'd ever been to! Cory's engagement with the crowd, and his upbeat, positive energy, made it a service to remember forever. A consummate professional, and overall amazing person. Thank you, Cory!Sent on 11/15/2018

If you want personal commitment and a connection, then Pastor Cory is the only choice. Just amazed with the ability of this young man. He's flexible, personable, caring, and has a big heart.

We love Reverend Newell!!
I know from the day I met him at my friends wedding that I would choose him to be our officiant. He is so nice and professional, and pulled emotions from us we didn’t know we had. He made our ceremony fun and upbeat and had the crowd involved. You will not regret choosing him. He is the best!Sent on 10/26/2018

Extremely great full and satisfied with our experience!
Corey was great! Mandy and I were nervous and made us feel comfortable. He took his time and had beautiful vows picked out...we couldn’t have wrote them better! He was great from the start very responsive and extremely flexible and was able to even make suggestions for a venue as well as somewhere nice to eat after. We may have only did a simple elopement but it was made so special! He is someone I will recommend to anyone and in my eyes you should not go with any one else. My brother also plans to use him as an officiant when he gets married. Thanks Corey for being amazing and creating a special memory my beautiful wife and I will never forget!Sent on 12/24/2018
