  • The best thing about Pastor Cory is that he cares about your story. When my wife and I first sat down with him for our initial interview over lunch he spent about two hours getting to know us on a deeper level but we were having so much fun that it felt like we had only been there for ten minutes when the check came. Fast forward two weeks and it is the day of our rehearsal. Pastor Cory was on time, efficient in getting all our people organized, and he had everyone in stitches the whole time. Finally, on the big day, Pastor Cory delivered a beautiful ceremony carefully tailored specifically to my wife and I that brought many happy tears to friends and family. Oh, and not to mention he managed to make all of these wonderful memories for us in the midst of a global pandemic and strict state restrictions! We cannot give a higher recommendation of a service to trust with your big day!

  • 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!

  • Can't recommend Pastor Cory enough! Even having to do a facebook live ceremony because covid changed our plans. He made a light heartfelt and fun ceremony for us. We happened to have found out about Pastor Cory, through mutual friends. Best decision ever. We gave him total free range, he wrote our vows and made fun references from comedy and super hero movies. Everything couldn't have been more perfect. We're so glad we have a recording for forever. Those moments Pastor Cory created for us, will last a life time.

  • We couldn't have found a better officiant! Pastor Newell had such positive energy. He tailored our ceremony to our religious beliefs. He was very professional yet fun. You will not be disappointed!

  • Me and my husband from the start of meeting cory loved him!! He was so willing to accommodate on such short notice and he made me feel so comfortable every step of the way. We really enjoyed his company but especially the way he conducted our ceremony. I will highly recommend him to anyone who needs services. We love you and thank you so much for all that you did for us on our special day.

  • Great service. We only needed someone present to officially sign off on our ceremony, but Cory was always very responsive and the process was incredibly easy even during COVID.

  • Rev. Cory was absolutely amazing! My husband and I were hesitant at first to have a total stranger marry us, but Rev. Cory took the time to get to know us and our story to the point that we felt like a friend was marrying us. Our guests even said that they had never laughed and cried so much in the same 30 minute period; we're still getting compliments about the way he ran the ceremony! There was a little mix-up the day after the wedding when we realized we had been given the wrong marriage license to file - but Rev. Cory stepped up and dropped everything while he was on vacation to make sure the problem was fixed! We would give him five stars and more if we could!

  • Rev. Cory is amazing. We asked for an inclusive ceremony (my family is Jewish my husbands is catholic) and for it to be humorous. And boy did he deliver! The ceremony was fun, energetic, inclusive, while also being thoughtful, romantic and personalized. It was everything we could have asked for and more. I never thought I’d say my favorite part of my wedding would be the ceremony, but it honestly was.

  • Very friendly and thoughtful on our special day. We loved the ceremony and how comfortable Pastor Cory made us feel, and how he made the best efforts of including our families and friends since we’re both military.

  • All we wanted was a very small, informal ceremony and what we received was more wonderful and a memory for a lifetime. Reverend Cory made us feel comfortable and at ease. We would call on him again for spiritual advice, marriage advice and a simple how are you. God bless you Reverend Cory!!

  • Finding the right officiant was the hardest choice my husband and I made during our wedding planning. We wanted someone we were comfortable with, who understood the gravity of the ceremony and created an experience for all our guest. Cory exceeded all our expectations. He was a pleasure to get to know, the only officiant we felt asked an appropriate amount of questions to truly understand and share our love story. On the day of, he was prompt, calm and reassuring, he engaged our guest and made us feel incredibly special. We cannot recommend him enough.

    Wow. Such kind words from such a dynamic and unique couple. Thank you for allowing me to share your story and for being such a great couple.

  • This company was wonderful to work with! We had to postpone our wedding multiple times due to COVID, but they made it so easy to change dates and were very understanding. Our officiant was Rev. Charles and he was so great throughout the whole process. Highly recommend!
