  • Rev. Samora was exactly what we were looking for: a super warm, friendly, flexible, and understanding interfaith minister to create a marriage ceremony that would honor both of our backgrounds (Roman Catholic and Jewish). We were comfortable with her from the first moment we met. Her suggestions and experience were invaluable to us as we were unsure of how a combined ceremony would look, neither of us having been to one before. We had collaborative input at every step of the ceremony "script writing" process, and never felt pressured to do things a "certain way." Rev. Samora is totally accommodating and supportive of what the couple wants to do! While all of our wedding guests complimented us on how beautiful the ceremony was, perhaps the best feedback I can share is that my husband's very opinionated 91-year-old Jewish grandmother was absolutely enchanted by the ceremony-- and specifically loved the typically Christian tradition of lighting the Unity Candle! It is 3 months ... Read more

  • On Friday the 2nd of March 2012 my husband and I, after flying in from Sweden where we live, we got married in Central Park by the lovely Samora. We could not have been more lucky to have chosen her to perform our ceremony. We feel so blessed to have had her help us on our special day and it is with so much love in our hearts and gratitude we give our warmest recommendations to Samora. You can not get a warmer more loving person, that with grate detail caters to your wishes and needs. We feel blessed to have met her and will cherish her always. Thank you so much Samora... hope to see you on our next visit to New York! Bless and Love Andreas & Emmy Huggins Ifwer

  • Rev. Samora was FANTASTIC!! You can tell how much she loves doing what she does and cares for her clients. She has such a warm, sweet, loving vibe. I would HIGHLY recommend her to anyone. The ceremony was beautiful with her words and the guitar player. We had many complements from our guests on how unique and heart felt it was. My husband and I are very pleased with her services.

    Thank you for your kind words! Malcolm and Natasha flew all the way from Australia and hoped for a Central Park Wedding outdoors. The rain was so heavy that day but we managed to make their wedding happen at the hotel Bentley where they were staying. It really was so beautiful and loving!

  • Rev. Samora was amazing! We couldn't have asked for a better person to wed us. She took us last minute, picked a stunning spot in Central Park, and prepared beautiful vows for us. We were honored to have her officiate our special day!

  • Rev Samora is the sweetiest person my wife and I have ever met. We couldn't have asked for more on our wedding day. She met every requirement we asked of her and more. She definitely has a passion for what she does and you can see it through the ceremony she conducted. She accepted our love and understood the bond we have... and interpreted into words. If you want to put your ceremony in capable hands Rev. Samora is the officiant for you.

  • Rev Samora could not have been a better pick for our wedding. From the first contact, she was so friendly yet professional. She was very responsive to ALL of our questions. She was always so responsible and kind and we are truly happy with the way she handled our wedding ceremony, she understood perfectly what we wanted and performed accordingly. Our wedding was even better than what we expected thanks to her. We would like to tell those who are planning their wedding, to contact her, because from that moment on you will be so glad you did.

  • Rev. Samora was a blessing to us. She provided us with valuable information regarding the application process and location of the wedding. She responded to all emails and questions promptly. Rev. Samora selected the perfect location in Central Park and made it easy for us (out of towners) to find her. She created a very touching ceremony and made us feel loved and welcomed. I would recommend her to anyone wanting to create a memory they will cherish forever!

  • Words cannot express how wonderful Rev Samora was throughout our entire wedding experience. Not only was she flexible but she was so real, easy to talk to, and knowledgable (thank God because we were so clueless!) Rev Samora was willing to costumize our wedding an sent us various versions until we were completely comfortable and satisfied. In addition, she also recommended a fantastic and talented guitar played who learned our and played Special songs! To anyone both gay and straight who are looking for a wedding officiant.. She comes highly recommended. Thank you again for making our wedding so magical ! Love, Deena and Julie

  • Reverend Samora was unforgettable! My Husband (fiance at the time) and I were planning a wedding in NY from Boston. This is no easy task, especially with less than three months before the big day. I searched all over the internet to try to find someone who would truly care about us and our big day. I found an officiant who was highly recommended, she unfortunately was not available on our date. She sent me a list of officiants that she recommended, one of which was Rev. Samora. I tried to contact a few of these individuals and I received a call back from a few, their main concern was money and how I could pay them. Rev. Samora then returned my phone call and didn't even mention payment until I brought it up. Her first concern was fitting our date into her schedule and wanting to meet us to plan our special day. She impressed me by her first phone call! My husband and I took a trip to NY and planned a date to meet with Rev. Samora. We had coffee at a cafe where Rev. Samora asked questio... Read more
