Ahh! So much to say about Peter! We truly enjoyed working with him. We met Peter at a coffee shop in the city and we instantly clicked. He was so easy to talk to, funny and outgoing. He walked us through the whole process and without a doubt in our minds we booked him right on the spot and are so glad we did! Our ceremony was amazing! It was funny, witty, lighthearted, easy to follow and most of all not a drag! Not to mention many of our guests commented on how soothing and peaceful Peter's voice was - which made the ceremony a pleasure to listen to. We felt like Peter really got to know us, understood what we wanted and delivered 100000%. Highly recommend him! He is absolutely wonderful!

My daughter chose Peter for her Central Park Wedding. From our first contact with him, I felt confident that the ceremony he conducted would be special. Peter touched base via email prior to the wedding and then included our personal items in the ceremony. ( For example , he mentioned the Bride and Grooms two dogs in the ceremony- smiles all around!)Peter is very personable and friendly- it was almost like having an old friend conduct the ceremony! I recommend him without reservation and would give MORE stars if possible!

We couldn't have asked for a better officiant! Peter was a great speaker, and pulled together our mixed background ceremony seamlessly. We are a non-religious couple, but wanted to honor our families Catholic and Jewish backgrounds, and he found the perfect words to honor this in his speech. We appreciated that he quickly shared his full speech with us early on, which helped put us at ease (one less thing to worry about during stressful wedding planning!). And he elegantly found a way to add in a tribute to my dad who had passed last year. During the wedding, our venue's microphone failed, however everybody could still hear Peter super clearly - we had comments from our guests on what a great job he did, I don't even think they noticed! Not to mention, Peter's quick thinking probably saved my dress from being caught on fire - I later found out he blew out candles that were previously lit by our venue coordinator to be right by my wedding dress on the floor! Good call on that! I would highly recommend Peter to anybody having a wedding. Thank you again for helping to make our rainy wedding day amazing ! :-D

We absolutely love him. Highly recommended.
I had the pleasure of working with Peter at a wedding I coordinated at Midtown Loft & Terrace. His friendly and easy going nature made it a joy to work with him. My couple couldn't have been happier with the way the ceremony turned out. I highly recommend him to any couple who is looking for an officiant that will listen to them and make the wedding truly their own and have fun dong it! Thanks Peter! Can't wait to work together again!
