Father Vince Corso speaks a language needed in today's world. Service, compassion, and respect are the cornerstones of his professional and personal life. Grounded in Franciscan community life for twenty years and ordained in 1980, Vince continues to minister as a married priest.

Couples who approach him to discuss plans for an upcoming wedding or other service can be assured of being welcomed with open arms and respect for personal circumstances and beliefs.As a licensed social worker, Vince blends the tenets of psychology and spirituality, walking with others in pursuit of wholeness and intimacy.

Vince has worked throughout the Americas in a variety of settings including Covenant House, serving homeless and runaway youth; college campus ministry; and social work and bereavement services for hospice care. He holds Masters Degrees in Divinity and Social Work. He lives in Essex County, New Jersey, with his wife, Christine, and their two children.?

The wedding ceremony itself, the heart of your wedding day, will speak to all present of the love the two of you share. Together, we will craft a ceremony that will reflect your love, point to the presence of the Divine, and embrace the important role that your family and friends have had in helping you arrive at this moment. I have been officiating at weddings for over 35 years, and will invest many hours getting to know you as individuals and as a couple, preparing the ceremony, and presiding at the joyful celebration of your marriage.

A typical ceremony will last 25-30 minutes. This is your ceremony, and you may create it as you wish; my role is to assist with ideas and concrete suggestions. There is room for readings as well as other symbolic acts, such as the lighting of a unity candle, the sharing of a cup of wine, or any appropriate action you would like. In addition, you may include people who are special to you in roles such as a reading, music, or giving a blessing or reflection during the ceremony.

The officiant is in your life for a short time, but plays an intense, intimate, and important role. As a married priest, I bring to your ceremony the insights I’ve gained over twenty years of counseling couples, as well as my own experience as a husband, father, and psychotherapist. Your ceremony will be uniquely your own and will speak to your family and guests of the depth of your love and your hopes for the future. Read less

Father Vince actually stepped in when our original officiant was unable to perform our ceremony. Everything definitely happens for a reason because our ceremony ended up absolutely perfect - even despite it raining on our outdoor ceremony! We met in person with Father Vince a few months before our wedding and he was able to customize our ceremony to exactly what we wanted. The day of he was there early to get our marriage license in order and even helped keep this nervous bride calm :) He was super helpful and responsive along the way. He also gave us lots of great advice and we read through the binder he gave us about marriage often. I highly recommend him!

If you found Father Vince and are considering having him officiate at you wedding, LOOK NO FURTHER, and, run (don’t walk) to book him now!
When Laura and I first started looking for an officiant, I assumed it really didn’t matter who we got, so long as at some point he said “you may now kiss the bride.”
Let me just say, how wrong I was. Father Vince made all the difference, and our guests are still commenting on what an incredible ceremony he performed. Yes, Laura and I were there too, but the combination of Father Vince’s warmth, wisdom, and message, as we blended our two families was perfect.
Naturally, one might ask “why,” and “what made Fr. Vince so good?” So let me explain:
Prior to meeting, "Vince" and his wife, Christine, made a point to e-mail extensively with us regarding who we were, and what we were looking for in our ceremony. Then, with a template in place, we discussed at length what our ceremony would be like, family participation, and how much spirituality and religion we wanted to incorporate into it.
Vince met with us beforehand so he could learn even more about our lives. We sat like old friends and discussed how we met, our circumstances, and hopes for the future. He took the time to take notes, ask questions, and perhaps, most importantly, to become our friend. He demonstrated that he really cared. So much so, that we felt like we were talking with a favorite Uncle who happened to volunteer to perform our wedding ceremony.
When our day finally arrived, Father Vince was there (early) and getting set up. He then delivered a ceremony with the perfect blend of spirituality and meaning that we hoped for. In fact, he was so complete in his message, and in his knowledge of us, that after the ceremony all of our guests just assumed he was either a longtime friend or family member.
If you seek a custom wedding service with a meaningful message of love and harmony, talk to Father Vince and Christine. Laura and I are so glad we did!

After searching through so many officiants for our wedding, we were so happy when we found Vince Corso! We immediately felt comfortable with him and felt that he really cared. We met with him twice and he took the time to get to know us and find out what type of ceremony we were looking for. He offered the traditional Catholic service or a more current, spiritual ceremony based on Buddhist principles. We wanted a combination of the two and Vince did such an amazing job that our guests kept coming up to us at the reception to tell us how great our officiant was and how he made the ceremony so interesting! People still talk about it!

We couldn't be happier with the way our ceremony turned out. He made the process so seamless and easy, and the price was very reasonable. Trust me, you won't be disappointed!

Was an absolute pleasure working with Father Vince. He was extremely considerate of both our family's beliefs and made sure to make us feel as comfortable as possible with the entire process. We received amazing reviews from our guests about his ceremony as his speech was not only catered to our beliefs, but you could tell it was well rehearsed with a pleasant pace. Extremely easy to work with and he was sincere in his care for our wellbeing as we started our new chapter in our lives. I would 100% recommend him!!

Father Vince was not only accommodating he was amazing and spectacular. He spent time with us to get to know who we were and they symbolism of our union to make our ceremony special. He really took time to make an amazing sermon and even spent time tweaking it before the event. I would highly recommend him if you are looking for a special touch for your ceremony I'd tell you that you can't go wrong with Father Vince!
