Welcome to a new beginning! Now it’s time to celebrate yours!

Life as we know it has gone through so many shifts this past year it’s hard to even know how to plan your upcoming wedding, let alone your future.  When can we all gather and hug our friends and loved ones again? It’s not easy to keep the distance but rest assured, no matter how you choose to celebrate your wedding day, love is never canceled, and it will always be the Best Day Ever!!

Your wedding day is still one of the most important moments of your life. It marks the beginning of a new, exciting chapter, and I am here to help you celebrate.  Now is the perfect time for you to bring into focus, what is most important and create a lasting memory for you and your loved ones to cherish for a lifetime.  Imagine the stories you will tell your kids.

As an award-winning wedding officiant and pre-marital counselor, I am well-versed in crafting all styles of ceremonies. I have performed more than 1,500 wedding and vow renewals with couples from every background, religion, and culture, and I feel blessed to have chosen this path. I create personalized ceremonies and include the traditions and elements that are most meaningful to you and your family.  Whether you are a multifaith couple, spiritual or humanist, I honor who you are, and weave your love story throughout the service. Most importantly, I am here to walk you through the often confusing process and support you along the way. These are unprecedented times so let’s make the most of this unforgettable moment.

In terms of following social distancing guidelines, New York City offers gorgeous outdoor settings for your ceremony. My wedding packages make planning your day even easier. All you need to do is choose your date, time, and location, and we will take care of the rest. There are many beautiful outdoor wedding venues around the city such as Central Park, Brooklyn Bridge Park, Botanical Gardens, and outdoor venues with spectacular views and lovely rooftops around the Metropolitan area. These gorgeous settings are perfect for photos to document your big day.  My packages are budget-friendly and always include top-notch vendors (who happen to be awesome people too)  who offer photography, videography, live music, flowers, and day-of coordination.

When Gov. Cuomo declared that couples in New York could be married legally online, I knew that it would bring a lot of joy and lift the spirits of so many couples who were forced to postpone, or even cancel their weddings. I now offer virtual weddings over Zoom for $150. Summer and fall are here and are also perfect seasons to book your outdoor Micro Wedding.  Small, intimate gatherings are very popular now and are a great alternative to online ceremonies.

For those of you who wish to start your marriage off with a strong foundation. As a Dr. of Spiritual Coaching, I offer Pre-Marital preparations sessions to assist you in designing a success blueprint for your marriage.  The same excitement that goes into planning your wedding should also be applied to planning your marriage.

“Samora connected with us immediately. She understood who we were, what brought us together,
and what we envisioned for our big day. She guided us through the whole process
and made it easy for us to relax and enjoy it.” – June 2014

Many couples ask me how I began officiating. What is my approach to weddings? 

I am an Award-Winning Wedding Officiant, interfaith minister and a Board-Certified Hypnotherapist, NLP practitioner (The Psychology of Success) & Symbis (Save.Your.Marriage.Before.It.Starts) Facilitator. In the past 9 years, I have married more than 1,000 couples and I am honored to be a part of such an important moment in two people’s lives.

I was born and raised in New York City and feel so honored to have been raised in a city with so many diverse cultures and beliefs.  I myself am from an interfaith, multi-cultural household which has afforded me the experience and knowledge to support couples who also share different cultures and backgrounds.  I was the kid who had the Christmas tree and Hanukkah Menorah displayed at the same time. Now they even call it Chrismukkah because of all the interfaith families that now celebrate both holidays.  I was not raised with any religion and my family celebrated their spirituality by always celebrating love as the core of our identity. I identify as non-denominational and I respect and embrace (and love to celebrate) other people’s beliefs and differences.




I truly love what I do! Each couple I marry remains close to my heart forever! No one can tell you better about my services than the couples I have already married.

It’s no exaggeration to say that without Samora – both as an officiant and as a wedding coordinator – our wedding would not have been what it was. My husband and I only had four weeks to plan our wedding in New York City, and Samora’s help was invaluable. Within an hour of meeting and chatting with us, Samora had found the ideal venue for us and our 40 guests. As well as helping us find a venue, Samora also helped us find and organise a wonderful photographer and beautiful flowers for the space, as well as offering guidance for how to create our wedding playlist. When it came to the ceremony itself, Samora was there early to help us get prepared (she even ran out at the last minute to get me cough drops for my bad cold!). The ceremony itself was absolutely perfect: thanks to Samora, we had a ceremony that was unique and personal to us a couple, but one that still retained references to tradition, which is exactly what we wanted. Many of our guests have said that it was one of the loveliest wedding ceremonies they have attended, thanks to the personal touch that Samora gave to it. Samora comes very highly recommended from both of us!

Rituals and Unity Ceremonies are a wonderful way to symbolize the joining of two people in marriage. I have chosen an array of rituals (tradition and non-traditional) that you may want to include in your ceremony.
