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!

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

Cory did a wonderful job of asking all the right questions to make sure the wedding fit our vision. He brought his own ideas to the table as well, but was sure not to add anything without of seal of approval first. I would definitely recommend.Sent on 08/20/2019

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

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!Sent on 08/16/2019

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.

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.Sent on 07/03/2019

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!!Sent on 07/05/2019

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.Sent on 07/05/2019

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.
