Who is Pastor Cory?

I'm an licensed minister and have officiated weddings since 2008. I have served in pastoral roles in several "mega churches" since 2002. With two Master's degrees from Liberty Theological Seminary; I have been serving in various churches, non profits, and businesses. I love reading, writing, hiking, the gym, traveling, and the beach when not wondering around the Commonwealth of Virginia marrying couples.

Known as the Wedding Pastor in Hampton Roads and Virginia's #1 Wedding Officiant, I'm an enthusiastic professional who will guide you to the most perfect wedding ceremony. Religious or non religious. I would love to help you celebrate in Virginia, North and South Carolina, Maryland, and Florida as well as beyond.
