About Art of the Ceremony, Reverend R.M. Peluso

Legally registered, NYC and Central Park wedding officiant, Reverend R. M. Peluso, is an Interfaith and nondenominational minister who specializes in bilingual and multicultural ceremonies. She was a early champion of marriage equality and welcomes same-sex couples. An award winnning writer and former performer and public speaker, Rev. Peluso creates original and customized ceremonies with warmth, wit and style. Her company--Art of the Ceremony--motto is "Our job is to make YOU look good."

"Many couples want simple ceremonies and I do plenty of those," she says, "but if a couple is looking for something truly unique--that's my passion. I love the challenge. I've done ceremonies in Spanish and French on a boat in New York Harbor, with everyone, including the minister, dressed up as pirates. One of my first weddings was between a Muslim and a Fundamentalist Christian. I wed many International couples...thank goodness for Skype. I've done weddings around a sports or movie or music theme, as well as classic, elegant, high society weddings. Lately, I've been creating a lot of renewal of vows ceremonies for couples whose stories encompass a fascinating history of many years together."

When a wedding officiant is also a writer, they can weave a story and appropriate elements that do justice to the journey a couple has taken together . " My philosophy is to help a couple create a ceremony that is as unique as they are, even if it's a simple ceremony. Every couple deserves a ceremony that will touch the heart and they can remember with pride for the rest of their lives."

    Rev. Peluso was a great officiant during the wedding. She was very professional throughout the entire experience. Rev Peluso asked for key details and reading for the ceremony and filled the rest of the ceremony with solid wording. She is very hands on and anybody who wants to be walked through there ceremony should hire her.

    Rev Peluso was wonderful. She helped us plan this wedding from beginning to end and gave very helpful advice. We where from out of town and her experience was crucial. Thank you
