Are you willing to perform a ceremony at a non-religious site?
An Interfaith ceremony is the acknowledgement of the symbolic truth of love that is universal in all traditions. Interfaith finds the commonalities at the same time celebrates the differences to bring a rich tapestry of diversity woven together in beauty and understanding. Your ceremony can reflect your specific faith traditions, beliefs, and customs at the same time we can merge with another tradition to bring in the universal truth of love. 
 
 Interfaith is the song of my heart. I honor every person of every denomination, and minister to them through a symbolic message rather than in any one spiritual language. My training in conflict resolution, multi-cultural and peace education as allowed see from an expansive perspective. 
 
 The beauty of interfaith wedding ceremony is that you get to create what you want. You can incorporate different beliefs at the same time unify them as one. Just as two people are different, the commonality of love is the unifying principle that brings you together. 
 
 My passion is to create ceremony for twin flames, divine complements and soul union couples who are spiritual consciousness on their path to wholeness. I love to incorporate sacred sites to harness the energies of the union and bring in celebratorty joy and honors that it deserves. With this deepness and intention, my ceremonies have been described as “Simple, Pure, and Personal.” 
 
 My style is one of that is more spiritual/personal than traditional. I believe choosing an officiant that fits your needs and reflects what you want to create is important. To make sure it is a right fit, I am happy to meet with the couple. I truly love writing and performing ceremonies. If we don’t find the right reading for you, I often have written my own poems for couples after getting truly inspired by the love that the couple shares. 
What is your attire for the ceremony?
I give my couples a choice. I will either wear my vestment and stole or a black suit or dress. I have photos of my weddings on my website, so they are welcome to take a look to get a sense what would be appropriate for their wedding.
Are you flexible in the wording used throughout the ceremony, including the vows?
I honor every person of every denomination, and minister to them through a symbolic message rather than in any one spiritual language. My training in conflict resolution, multi-cultural and peace education as allowed see from an expansive perspective. 
 
 The beauty of interfaith wedding ceremony is that you get to create what you want. You can incorporate different beliefs at the same time unify them as one. Just as two people are different, the commonality of love is the unifying principle that brings you together. 
 
Do you allow the couple to write their own vows, if desired?
My ceremonies have been described as “Simple, Pure, and Personal.” My style is one of that is more personable than traditional. I believe choosing an officiant that fits your needs and reflects what you want to create is important. To make sure it is a right fit, I am happy to meet with the couple. I truly love writing and performing ceremonies. I am happy to guide couples who would like to write their own vows as well as incorporate into the ceremony.
Do you have a list of readings pre-selected, from which the couple must choose?
I have many suggestions. If we don’t find the right reading for you, I often have written my own poems for couples after I have interviewed them. I am a free-lance journalist and writer and I find the writing very rewarding and fulfilling especially on such a sacred occasion.
How long are your ceremonies?
15 to 30 minutes.
Do you require that premarital counseling be done?
Premarital counseling is not required. I work with a questionnaire that helps me get to know the couple and create their ceremony. If a couple would like counseling, I am able to offer that if they wish, but it certainly not a requirement.
Are you willing to perform pre-ceremony rehearsals?
I often recommend being present at the rehearsals. In my experience, I have found that couples and the wedding party find the rehearsal day the most anxious and awkward. A lot of times, it is the first time people are meeting each other for the first time (groomsmen and bridesmaids). The rehearsal gives everyone the opportunity to meet me and if they have any questions during the wedding day, they know that they can come to me.
Do you supply a sound system?
No.

When my now husband Noah and myself knew that we aspired to enter into the journey of marriage with one another. We both were spiritual beings, but not religious church goers. So the officiant we would select hopefully would support our beliefs and when we found Naomi; everything clicked and oh so unique.

With her kind, warm and generous spirit, she met with us and helped us plan a wedding, a union, commitment ceremony, whatever title you care to attribute. She listened, gave guidance and manifested a truly remarkable, memorable and what a "love-fest" of a day!

We had a smaller ceremony with 55 of our closest family and friends in New York City's Conservatory Gardens in Central Park. Well 55 were invited and over 200 watched from afar; but it was so intimate, thought provoking and a joyous day where we celebrated life and the life/family my husband and myself were creating with each other.

Not only were we overjoyed with Rev. Naomi but all of our guests loved her too! Many of our guests made sure to speak to her after the ceremony as they also were so moved by her presence, her words and what transpired.

Thank you Rev. Naomi.

All Best~

Reverend Naomi Fay was our wedding officiant. From the moment we met with Naomi, we knew with her great personality and kind nature that she would be perfect for us. We had ideas of readings we liked, and Naomi was able to integrate our ideas with hers to create the perfect ceremony.

During our outdoor ceremony, it began to rain. I was a little nervous about the commotion going on...but Naomi kept calm, and continued with the reading. I think her composure helped assure our guests (and us) that we could finish the ceremony outside...and it eventually did stop raining.

Thanks Naomi...you made our ceremony unique and special, and it's something we'll always remember!

Rev Naomi Fay was the most amazing officiant we could have ever imagined. From the first conversation we had with her, we felt so excited! Her process was very in depth, and she took so much time to get to know us and make our ceremony personal, sweet, special, spiritual and beautiful. Our wedding day was an absolute dream from start to finish, and Naomi played such a huge part in that. Our vows were so meaningful and special to us, and she held our hand during the entire process up to the rehearsal and the big day. She is so kind and we felt truly blessed to have found her. It was a perfect day!

Rev. Naomi Fay was the perfect officiant for us. We wanted a meaningful, personal, non-denominational ceremony and Naomi was able to work with us to create a very beautiful, touching ceremony that our family and friends loved, as did we. From the very first consultation with Naomi I felt a connection with her and felt very lucky to have found her for our wedding. She asked me and my husband many questions to get to know us and our relationship so that she could personalize our ceremony and she even helped us to create a framework to write our own words to say to each other during our ceremony - that was very special for us. I also want to add that she was amazing at directing our rehearsal ceremony. We just had a simple gathering of our wedding party at my family's house before our rehearsal dinner to walk through the ceremony, and she arrived on time and very prepared. She was very comfortable and we felt comfortable with her. She organized our wedding party, answered questions and made us all feel very confident about how everything would flow. I cannot say strongly enough how much I recommend including the walk through - not only did it really help to organize our group but it was also really fun! On the day of our wedding, Naomi arrived early for our ceremony and was a calming presence. Even after the ceremony, she was so patient and understanding and not in a rush to hurry off - we needed to sign the official documents with her and provide payment, but she even waited for my dress to be bustled and chatted with my bridal party! What a true gem Naomi is. I am extremely grateful to her for the phenomenal service that she provided and I cannot recommend her highly enough - thank you Naomi! :)

Naomi was extremely friendly and professional throughout the entire process. She made us both very calm and at ease. She personalized our ceremony by asking great questions as well. She was very easy to get a hold of whenever we had questions or any feedback for her as well. We didn't want any part of the service to mention God or religion at all and she made sure she did as we requested perfectly. If we wanted The actual day of the ceremony she did a fantastic job and we'd highly recommend using her to everyone if you want to have a wonderful ceremony and experience!
