    The ONLY officiant you want to work with

    There is so much to worry about the days leading up to your wedding. One thing I can confidently say was that our officiant was not one of those things. From day one of meeting Peter in NYC with my fiancé, now husband, we knew he was the only one we trusted with our big day.

    After officially deciding to work with Peter we received a full outline of our ceremony, different options for prayers and his version of “our story”. We made small tweaks but overall Peter hit it out of the park. He even helped us in walking us through the wedding license process which was above and beyond.

    The day of the wedding Peter was absolutely magical. Listening to his ceremony you would think he has been a life long friend of ours and was just as invested in our marriage as our family and friends. He was flawless to the point where our guest are still talking about his performance.

    I could not have more great things to say about Peter. There are endless things that one can nitpick about their wedding after the fact but I can truly say I have zero complaints about his ceremony. If you are getting married look no further for your officiant as you have found him!

    Thank you again Peter, we can not possibly thank you enough!

    Love,
    The Donnellys

    Jersey City Wedding 8/23/2019

    Peter was such a wonderful choice for our August 2019 wedding. He is so easy to work with and was extremely responsive leading us to the wedding itself. As you can see in his videos on his website, he is well spoken, yet loud enough for all guests to hear without any issues. We had a shorter ceremony (about a half hour) that included Jewish traditions. Peter outlined a great ceremony for us to work with and let us adjust the format as needed. He made sure to arrive early the day of and was also very helpful finalizing our license after the ceremony. You can't go wrong with choosing Peter!

    One of the best NYC Officiants

    While researching Central Park weddings, we stumbled across Peter from Our Wedding Officiant NYC. He has a series of videos that highlight popular venues in Central Park to get married. His presentation won us over, and we knew he was an excellent match to host our ceremony. Peter offers a variety of packages that friendly to wedding budgets. The extra services he provides can help anyone who is planning their weddings. As a resident of New York City, he is an excellent resource for those who want to travel there to get married. Our ceremony was beautiful, and we owe a great deal of that to Peter and Tatiana. We’d highly recommend that you book Peter to officiant your service, you won’t be disappointed.

    The perfect wedding officiant

    After the wedding everyone commented that our ceremony was beautiful, and I don’t think we could achieved that without Peter. He is very professional and good at what he does. From our first meeting with Peter up until the moment he left the wedding he was an absolute professional. We met with him for a brief interview, he provided us with a draft of the speech which was amazing and tailored to us a short while later, and after giving our input and edits we were all set. He was very easy to work with, our ceremony was clearly laid out and went exactly as planned. Peter pays close attention to detail and it is obvious he has officiated many weddings as he is prepared with his speech typed out on a small noninvasive notepad and was in fact dressed to accommodate our colors. A lot of people asked us if we knew him personally and if he was a friend of ours or something, which is a sign of how incredible his words were and how he spoke about us during the ceremony. His demeanor and voice elevated the entire affair and brought a very profound feeling to such an important in our lives. We could not be happier with Peter as our officiant, he is one of the best there is.

    Celebrant Review

    We would thoroughly recommend Peter as a celebrant. He was highly responsive and a great listener who found the perfect balance between offering suggestions/ guidance and ensuring the ceremony matched our (initially somewhat vague) ideas. After our initial meeting he quickly put together a draft script for our edit/ approval and we quickly and collaboratively settled on the final text. He performed very well on the day of the ceremony and struck just the right tone of a being a commanding speaker but never dominating proceedings. Thanks again Peter!

    Amazing Officiant!!

    My husband and I couldn’t be happier with our decision to hire Peter to officiate our wedding. Our ceremony was perfect, he’s able to accommodate any type of ceremony which was amazing.. my husband and I wanted something shorter and somewhat traditional and Peter did just that! He’s very knowledgeable and was able to answer all of our questions throughout the process and his quick response on emails made it easy to communicate with total confidence and ease. Peter was also very prompt and also such personable guy! Can’t say enough great things about him!!

    Peter is amazing!

    Peter was very helpful and was absolutely amazing. Besides making our wedding amazing with his wonderful words, he is very nice and engaging and helps you through every step of the way. He even gave great tips on how/when to obtain the marriage license and btw, he took care of the filing of that too! The moment we met Peter we knew that he was the one we wanted. If you are looking for a top notch officiant, you have found him in Peter!!

    Peter’s ceremony for our wedding was beautiful and beyond our expectations!

    We got to know Peter after having many phone conversations and an in person meeting to plan our wedding ceremony together. On the day of our wedding he truly made our ceremony very special for us and emotional as we were blending two families together. All of the comments from our guests after our wedding were remarking on how touching and beautiful our ceremony was. We are grateful that we chose Peter to be such an important part of such an important day and our life. Thank you, John and Maddy

    Peter is Amazing!

    Peter was kind, personable, warm and had a great, strong presence as the officiant of our intimate wedding ceremony. He skillfully weaved in elements of Christian and Hindu traditions, as we requested, and made everything seamless and memorable.

    Perfect Officiant for our Perfect Day

    Peter was the perfect fit for our SURPRISE wedding.. After 17-years together; we decided to "tie the knot".. All guests thought they were attending a SURPRISE birthday party - we sure SURPRISED them. Peter was awesome!
    Professional, impeccably dressed, well-spoken, amiable, cordial & a bit lighthearted too.. My husband-to-be was sweating profusely during our vows / Peter pulled a handkerchief out of his pocket & handed it to him saying "hey; full-service here".. Everyone chuckled! Would HIGHLY recommend Peter for your special day! He will NOT disappoint.

    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 chose Peter after researching, both him and other, officiants recommended by our wedding planner.
    We liked his personable approach and smile.
    We spoke to Peter via Skype and email a number of times and he suggested options so that we would get the right tone for the ceremony.
    At no time were we concerned that he wasn’t the right person for us.
    On the day he arrived before all the guests.
    He has a great nature about him and the ceremony went off without a hitch.
    I would not hesitate to recommend Peter as your officiant. We couldn’t have wished for a more perfect beginning to our life together.
    Best wishes to you all,
    Mr Robert Battley and Mrs Justine Battley.

    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

    Peter was one of two ministers we hired for our Hindu/Non-Denominational wedding (the other was a Hindu priest). When I was planning the wedding, everyone kept saying that a combined Hindu and Christian wedding couldn't be done because there were too many differences between the traditions, but I was determined to make it happen. Peter took care of writing all of the parts we wanted to include for the non-denominational parts of the wedding, and did a seamless job of handing things off back and forth with the hindu priest so that the wedding flowed smoothly. Because we knew the ceremony would take an hour, I was afraid that people would get bored listening after awhile, but Peter did a great job of bringing some energy into it and kept everyone paying attention. We were so happy with our ceremony.

    Peter Boruchowitz was our officiant and we can't recommend him highly enough! He spent time before the event getting to know us and out story and incorporated key details into the ceremony. His delivery was great (friendly, just the right speed) and we had many complements afterwards from guests saying how impressive he was. You should definitely consider Peter for your officiant!

    We were absolutely thrilled with our officiant, Peter Boruchowitz. He was very professional, friendly, and accommodating. He is an excellent orator, which really helped with our outdoor setting. There were some small issues that came up with our ceremony, but Peter was very flexible and accommodating to the point my wife and I had no clue of the issues.

    Thank you Peter for helping to make our wedding day everything we hoped it would be!

    Peter was absolutely fabulous for our wedding ceremony! My husband and I are from out of state and he helped us with directions on obtaining our Marriage License to make the process as easy as possible.

    Peter- Thank you so much for the beautiful wedding you preformed for our son on Nov. 1, 2017. It was one of the most loving, personal and sincere weddings I’ve ever attended. Your speech was elegant and heartfelt and our guest remarked how in touch you were with the couple. You are absolutely phenomenal. From the initial email to the completion of the wedding, you made planning this wedding from across the county fun, easy, and personal (we are from California). We hope that anyone who is thinking of getting married in New York finds you to perform it. The wedding would not have been the same without you. Thank you so much

    Peter was just wonderful. We had a last minute wedding change and he was there in a pinch. He sent us several options for our vows so we could tailor it to who we are as a couple. He was always responsive and made me (a frantic bride) feel at ease. And every one of our guests raved about his ceremony. Although we had just met him in person that day, his warmth and kindness made it feel like we knew him for a long time. We were so lucky to find Peter!
