  • We were initially referred to Samora by our photographer. After reviewing her profile on the web and checking her references we decided to include her in the list of marriage officiants we were considering to celebrate our wedding. During our pre-screening call, it became very clear to both of us that Samora should be our only choice. She was very knowledgeable and had answers to all of our questions, even making suggestions which we had not even thought about. After our initial call, she sent us a through follow up email and a few days before the ceremony contacted us again to remind us regarding all of the logistics . Aside from being well organized and having excellent follow up, we were captivated by the great positive energy Samora radiates. We connected extremely well with Samora since our first contact and were truly enchanted with the way she made our wedding day unique, filled with spiritual energy expressed through the beautiful words she chose for our cerimony.

  • Rev. Samora was really great to work with and did an excellent job as our wedding officiant. When we met with her to describe what we wanted we connected with her right away. She's very warm, open-minded, and has a great depth of spiritual and religious knowledge. There was a lot of communication before the day of as we exchanged drafts of the vows. The day of the wedding she arrived early and did a really great job with the service. We received many compliments from our guests on how nice the service was. Overall the entire experience of working with her was really positive and stress-free. Would recommend her to others.

  • Samora married my wife and I in May 2013. I found Samora at the last minute after our original officiant backed out. With only a week before the wedding, she really came through for us and provided the perfect ceremony without much help from me during that busy week. She is flexible, friendly, punctual, classy, gorgeous, laid back and very easy to work with. We chose a non-religious ceremony from Samora's collection, and it was more than I had hoped for. Her voice is calming and beautiful and she made all the guests feel welcome. All of our wedding guests raved about her so much that our friends asked for a referral, and she has already married them as well! I can not even think of any recommendations for improvement. Samora was just absolutely amazing across the board. I will recommend her to everyone I know gay, straight, and everything in between!

  • Rev. Samora made our day so special, the ceremony was relaxed and informal and she wrote lovely vows which perfectly reflected mine and my husbands feelings towards one another. The ceremony was also flexible and we were able to say a few of our own words. We cannot recommend Rev. Samora highly enough; she is warm, caring and just a genuinely nice person. Communication beforehand was very good and put us at ease. We also had Diana accompany the ceremony on an acoustic guitar, which was really amazing. Our guests all commented on how lovely the ceremony was, it couldn't of been any more perfect x

  • My husband and I had decided we wanted a simple yet of course meaningful wedding ceremony in NYC. At the time we were not sure where to begin in the planning, and our family dynamics needed some consideration. After we did some research, we had decided on Rev. Samora. From the moment we met with her we knew we had made the perfect choice. She was extremely sensitive to our needs. Not only was she helpful with planning the ceremony, she had awesome ideas to incorporate in to the service. We were so happy to have met Rev. Samora. She truly made our wedding day very memorable. Our families all commented on her warm personality and caring ways. We were honored she was able to perform our ceremony.

  • The decision to finally get married after 19 years together was a big one. From the very start with emails and phone calls we felt like Samora was family and really wanted everything to be special for us. When we finally met a few days before our event, we both knew that she was sent to us for a reason. I could never imagine that wonderful day without Samora

  • We found Rev. Samora searching the web, we live in Argentina and we decided to get married in NY. Once we saw her website and the amazing reviews, we decided to contact her. We loved working with Rev. Samora. What can we say? She was so professional, kind and thoughtful, helped us every step along the way. She spent nearly two hours meeting with us and was warm and kind from the beginning. The ceremony was beautiful, extremely personal, and very well crafted. Rev. Samora wove all the stories we told her about each other. She was very professional, and you can tell she is quite passionate and committed to what she does. Many have said it was one of the most romantic and beautiful weddings they have ever been. We are so grateful to Rev. Samora for crafting the most personal, warm and beautiful memory we could have imagined. Our wedding was intimate and we wanted it to be a reflection of what we were so proud to be celebrating. She will build for you the most creative, personal, ... Read more

  • Our wedding day was more than we dreamed of, and I must give this credit to Rev. Samora, she was very professional and helpful in recommending venues and an amazing photographer. She had a central park package including an amazing guitarist which was perfect for our intimate ceremony. Rev. Samora wrote a beautiful ceremony for us. I have and will continue to recommend her services.

  • Rev Samora was GREAT! I am from Chicago and the hubby is from Brooklyn so we wanted to do something extremely small there because we would have a larger ceremony in Chicago. Initially I did a google search for officiants becaus I really had no clue as to where to start. The first officiant I spoke with made me feel like this was going to be the hardest task ever I was a burden. Then I found Rev Smith. I loved the vibe her website gave me immediately!!! When I spoke with her it put me at ease tremendously. She was very friendly, and understanding to what we wanted to do. We ended up changing the date and time two separate time and she was VERY flexible and understanding. When I reached out to her with any questions she responded within a reasonable time frame and on the day of was prompt very pleasant to deal with. If you are looking into booking her look no further she is a wonderful breath of fresh air in what can be a hectic situation!!

  • Rev Samora did a fantastic job on my wedding. She designed an amazing ceremony that spoke to the faiths of both my husband and I (he's Muslim and I'm Christian). I was planning my wedding from out of state so that was a little hard. I think that made it hard to set up time to meet her before the wedding. We did speak twice before the wedding and she made several drafts of the ceremony until we got it right. On the day of the wedding she was very attentive. She asked how I was doing and delivered the scriptures and rituals perfectly. I would absolutely recommend Rev Samora to anyone.

  • I spent a lot of time looking for a wedding officiant for a Central Park wedding. All of the websites felt very impersonal, until I found Rev. Samora. Her site reflects who she is--her spirituality, generosity, and sincerity. My husband and I met with her before the wedding, and she was everything I expected she would be. She was incredibly helpful and kind, offering suggestions for the wedding without being overbearing. She helped us to decide on exactly the ceremony we wanted. We had a small wedding, but the details were still quite stressful. One element I never felt stress about was the officiant. And, to top it off, through her we hired a great guitarist (which my husband did not want initially, but ended up loving) and a fantastic photographer. Rev. Samora Smith was a wonderful find! I'm so happy that she was part of our wedding.
