  • From the moment I connected with Samora she made the whole process of planning a wedding in New York all the way from England a complete dream. She was so helpful and was quick to respond. On top of this she is so warm and lovely! We had the most wonderful day and this was in great part due to Samora.

  • We loved having Rev. Samora wed us in Central Park. Very professional and personally tailored our ceremony. It was beautiful and my guest loved it - “it was magical and perfect”. I’m extremely thankful for Rev. Samora.

  • Having Rev. Samora officiate our wedding made everything just perfect. She was very sensitive, very responsive, engaging and ensures she caters to your preference, set budget and needs. As ours was a private wedding, she respected our choice and looked after us, as well as our guests, very well. We are extremely grateful as she made everything convenient for us: arranging our wedding venue, offered choices for reception, hired a photographer and violinist for us. We love her so much and we cant imagine anyone else marrying us. She was exceptional and we highly recommend her. It was lovely meeting her daughter too in the wedding. xx A&A

  • We were so pleased with our experience with Reverend Samora! She came to meet us before the wedding to get to know each other and discussed the themes we wanted to incorporate. She offered thoughtful questions and ideas that helped us write our own vows. The ceremony was so beautiful and and heartwarming! It was wonderful to share our love story with family and friends. I received many compliments about how romantic the ceremony was. Samora is a very sweet and easy person to talk to and we recommend her highly!

  • Rev Samora was just what we were looking for. She found a way to make our ceremony incredibly intimate and personal whilst keeping it light hearted and funny allowing all our friends and family to be and feel a part of our moment. Couldn't have asked for a better ceremony or delivery of it. We would highly recommend her.

  • Any couples who are looking for a first class officiant for your wedding, look no further! Reverend Samora Smith is hands down your best choice. My wife and I were in desperate need of an officiant when our original choice canceled. Reverend Samora came to our home to meet with us. Her energy, spirit, and genuinely sweet personality shown through. Our wedding was a monumental success in part to Reverend Samora's ceremony. We have made a true friend. Kind, Caring and thoughtful Reverend Samora is unmatched.

  • We could not have been more honoured or privileged to have Rev Samora officiate our marriage. She made the whole experience seamless and she absorbed every last minute request we had and made our ceremony perfect. We had an elopement Ceremony and when we met totally put us individually at ease. We had lots of previous correspondence, but no actual meeting until the day. When we met it was like we were old friends, she put us at ease that much. Our special day was made even more amazing by Rev Samora, it could not have been more perfect. I look at my wedding ring and have an overwhelming feeling of love and gratefulness for my now husband. I can not imagine one second of my life without him. He is my love, my family and as per our vows ..... my home. Rev Samora made this a reality, and with her additional very touching, beautiful words, made this not only extra special, but extremely heartfelt. A huge Thank you to Rev Samora for this, please don’t stop what you do... Read more

  • Samora was a wonderful person to work with. We wanted a meaningful ceremony that integrated the three cultures associated with our backgrounds: Persian/Iranian, Indian and Filipino. Samora did a fantastic job with listening to us and understanding our vision, and implementing that vision with a personal touch. Our ceremony involved multiple stages. The first stage was the display of the sofreh aghd - i.e. Persian ceremony. Samora did background research and right away introduced the symbolism associated with the spread, which was valued by our guests. Second, she read a beautiful poem capturing our union, with a piano piece playing in the background. We thoroughly appreciated this, as we didn't want a religious ceremony, given our mixed backgrounds. We wanted to share our union with loved ones on a humanistic level, devoid of creed and religion. Samora was really creative at incorporating the Indian and Filipino cultures into the Persian ceremony. This was the third stage in which my h... Read more

  • Rev. Samora took the time to meet with my wife and I to truly understand what we were looking for out of our ceremony. She made herself available for questions both before and after the wedding as well. I would recommend to anyone looking to get married in the area.

  • Rev. Samora is one of a kind!! We met her at a wedding fair and hired her to be the officiant for our wedding in May/2019. We can hardly put everything in words: Her speeches, her voice tone, the way she made the ceremony so flowy and catchy, her effort, the perfect coordination with every detail we had in mind for our day, everything was just perfect. Most of our guests kept asking for how long had we met her for, since everybody thought we were close friends. Not to mention how she made absolute everyone there (grooms included) bawl out!! She is amazing and would recommend her for anyone looking for authenticity and warmth during the ceremony.
