  • If you need someone to perform a ceremony with no love, soul or taste, Rev Samora is not for you. If on the other hand you want a warm, caring and altogether beautiful woman to be a part of your special day, look no further. Rev Samora took the time to get to know the both of us. She went out of her way to figure out the ceremony that would work for us. There's no cookie cutter versions here. Did we want funny, religious, serious? Who were we as a couple, what were we like together? The ceremony was beautiful and Rev Samora took care of all the details you might forget. I can't say enough good things about her and would recommend her services 1000%.

  • My husband and I had the absolute pleasure of having Rev. Samora Smith perform our wedding ceremony. It was down to Earth, heartfelt, and full of love without being over the top and "sappy". The entire planning process was smooth and easy. She was a pleasure to work with and met all of our needs to a "T". Not to mention she is so sweet and lovley to talk to; our initial meeting was like having coffee with a friend. I would highly reccommend her services.

  • Rev. Samora Smith was amazing! She squeezed me in even though I gave her literally three days notice. I knew I wanted her to marry us the moment I spoke to her on the phone. I was blessed to have her be a part of our special day. She is super professional but also very caring. She responded to my questions and concerns immediately. I would recommend her to everyone. Thank you again so so very much!

  • Rev. Samora officiated the most beautiful ceremony we could have ever asked for. She is such a kindred, loving spirit and her presence added so much to our wedding. She took the time to get to know us and to listen to everything we wanted in our ceremony, then delivered the most personal, meaningful and special message. She is absolutely lovely. I highly recommend her! She will make your wedding amazingly beautiful!

  • We have to thank Rev. Samora for writing and conducting a beautiful wedding ceremony for us, for being so pleasant and professional to work with, and for helping to manage wedding day chaos that resulted from a mix up with our limos. If you work with Samora you will see how calm and thoughtful she is. It was inportant to us to have a ceremony that really refected our relationship and personalities, and Samora worked with us to customize the perfect ceremony. Throughout the process of writing our ceremony she had great suggestions and ideas and made us feel we were in great hands - and we were right! On the day of our ceremony my husband accidently got in the wrong limo and wound up arriving to our venue later than he was supposed to. Rev. Samora kept everything under control, and she even spoke with the restaurant to make sure there was staff available to help my husband get his things out of the limo. Her service went above and beyond the duties of officiant, and she really made sure ... Read more

  • 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. We wo... Read more

  • 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.

  • 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.
