All of the following reviews were originally published and verified by third party review websites and authored by Our Wedding Officiant NYC's brides and grooms.

We are very grateful for their kind words.

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!
Wedding: 10/21/17 - Nana

Peter was absolutely fantastic for our wedding ceremony! My husband and I decided to have an intimate wedding less than two months than the date of, and Peter couldn't have been more accommodating. He met with us right away, and even though we were short on time, worked with us quickly to still make our ceremony personal, special, and unique. We got married at one of the more busy parts of Central Park. Peter was the best for this type of environment. Not only does he have a strong presence where his voice and message carried across the crowd, but he has a strong personality that could help navigate the busy NYC location. I'm so glad we worked with Peter on our special day!
Wedding: 10/7/17 - Sarah

Being the first in both of our families to get married outside of a church our parents were a little concerned and skeptical about us being married by an officiant at the venue. Peter's Ceremony was incredible. He added the right amount of Religion (for our families), but kept it personal and light (for us). Our families have not stop raving about how beautiful our ceremony was - one guest told us it was the nicest "service" they've every been to. I would recommend him to ANYONE needing an Officiant!
Wedding: 10/7/17 - Mehgan

Peter exceeded our expectations with his beautiful ceremony. We received SO MANY compliments with how amazing he was. He truly made our ceremony guests feel our love which is exactly what we wanted. He has a gift and it shows! Thank you Peter a MILLION times over!
Wedding: 9/30/17 - Amber

Peter was absolutely amazing. From our first meeting where he got to know us and asked about how we met and our lives together, to the last review of the Ceremony, he was a pleasure to work with. His Ceremony was incredible. He added the right amount of Religion (for our Mothers), but kept it contemporary (for us). I would recommend him to ANYONE needing an Officiant!
Wedding: 9/23/17 - Patrick

Don't waste anymore time searching - book Peter to officiate your wedding! My husband and I traveled from the UK to New York with our family to get married in Central Park. As soon as we came across Peter's website we both knew Peter would be perfect to officiate our wedding. He was very responsive to our emails and remained in regular contact with us up to our wedding day. Peter even gave us ideas for alternative wedding venue when the forecast took a turn for the worse. What stuck out to my husband and I the most was Peter's warmth, it felt like we had known him years and we could see Peter took great pride in his work which put us both at ease with planning our wedding from 5000 miles away! We predominantly used face time to speak to Peter and he took the time to get to know us as a couple and from this developed an amazing script for our ceremony. On our wedding day, Peter met us in Central Park welcoming us a big hug. Our wedding ceremony was better than either of us could ever of imagined. All of our guests commented how wonderful Peter was, he really was the perfect choice for us. During the ceremony Peter spoke with great presence and sincerity, it was evident that he loves what he does and being a part of peoples special day. We can't thank Peter enough. If you are looking for an Officiant, look no further, there is no better than Peter.
Wedding: 9/6/17 - Laura

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!
Wedding: 9/3/17 - Julie

My husband and I were married at the Boathouse in Prospect Park at the end of summer and Peter couldn't have been a more wonderful wedding officiant!! When we initially reached out we met in a quaint coffee shop to get to know each other. Peter was warm, friendly and genuinely interested in getting to know us as a couple. Little did we know that he was already planning our ceremony!!! Peter personalized our ceremony and was incredibly flexible with our suggestions, but at the same time helped guide us through the process to ensure we had selected readings and vows that fit us as a couple. Our dream New York City ceremony couldn't have been more perfect- THANK YOU!!!!
Wedding: 9/1/17 - Jacinta

My advice is to book Peter. Dont even hesitate. I'm from Ireland and we flew to New York especially for our wedding. Peter was so professional and friendly and it wasnt just us that fell in love with him. Everybody at our ceremony could just sense what a nice man and true professional he is! Just book him now!!!
Wedding: 8/29/17 - Serena

Peter was professional, knowledgeable and easy to work with. He gave us a sense of confidence that all would go well, and it did.
Wedding: 8/4/17 - Julie

We would not hesitate in recommending Peter to perform your wedding ceremony - he is excellent at what he does! We had the most wonderful wedding in Central Park in July & Peter was a huge part of why it was so good! We first contacted Peter after reading very favourable reviews online & we found our experience to be the exact same. In all communication prior to the wedding Peter was always very helpful, professional & quick to reply. He also gave us tips about NY & suggested the most beautiful location in Central Park to get married at. He consulted us at every step of the way & produced a wonderful wedding ceremony that was so personal & really reflected us as people. Around 30 of us travelled from Scotland to NY & many of our guests commented on how great Peter was, how personal he made it & of course his wonderful New York accent! Couldn't have asked for a better officiant - thank you Peter!
Wedding: 7/18/17 - Elidh

We cannot say enough good things about Peter. He was prompt in all communications (phone, email, and Skype) and very dependable. He officiated our fusion ceremony (Christian & Hindu) and was very knowledgeable about both faiths. In fact was more knowledgeable than most Hindu priests!! We come from different religious backgrounds and have children from prior relationships. He helped us script a beautiful ceremony that combined both of our faiths and our families, combining us into one unified family. And his fee was more than reasonable. We could not have chosen a more perfect officiant. We have NO reservations about recommending him for any wedding ceremony.
Wedding: 7/7/17 - Nandish

Peter was exactly the officiant we wanted for our Wedding!!! My husband and I met with Peter and he immediately made us feel comfortable. He was obviously well experienced and provided us with so many insights and information that we left feeling so much better informed than when we got there. Peter was incredibly responsive and professional. He answered all of our questions and e-mails quickly. He sent us a draft of our ceremony right away after we confirmed booking him for our Wedding. His words were perfect. It was obvious he really paid attention when getting to know us the first meeting and he told our story as though he knew us for years. His personality is wonderful. He has an incredible presence that is strong and projects well, but also is warm and romantic anddid not out shine us. His voice and words were so perfect for our Wedding. Everyone, including some of the biggest critics in our families, LOVED HIM.
Wedding: 6/24/17 - Rosanna

Peter is wonderful! We knew as soon as we met him, over a year before our wedding, that he was the perfect choice for our wedding! He was very warm, and gave a great idea to include during our ceremony (a wine unity, similar to a sand ceremony but with wine). He was very responsive, professional, and arrived early to the ceremony site. Our ceremony was beautiful and our guests complimented how nice it was! We loved the wine unity, and all the nice words Peter said! Very memorable!
Wedding: 5/27/17 - Lauren

Peter was absolutely phenomenal. We chose him as our officiant for our wedding and couldn't be happier. We had a unique American/Filipino/Chinese wedding, that incorporated a small combination of the 3 for our ceremony. Peter was very knowledgeable about all 3 backgrounds and was able provide a perfect ceremony for us. He was truly helpful every step of the way and we highly, highly recommend his services. Thanks again!
Wedding: 5/20/17 - Ben

Peter Boruchowitz was a fantastic wedding officiant. We found him via The Knot and from day 1 we knew he would be the perfect person to marry us. He was calm, detailed and friendly in his approach and honestly he couldn't have done a better job! He even mentioned our pets back home which was a lovely touch. We had to communicate via video link as we came to NYC from the UK. Peter made us feel at ease and we were right to have no anxiety about the day as he had it all figured out. Thanks again Peter!
Wedding: 4/29/17 - Lillie

The best compliment I can give to Peter would be to mention the amount of people who asked my wife and I how long we had been friends with Peter and if he had gotten ordained just to do our wedding. So many people were convinced that he had to be a life-long friend because his ceremony was so personal and so representative of our relationship. Peoples' mouths were agape when I told them that we had only met him for 30 minutes at a cafe in Chelsea and that was all it took for him to deliver. Peter was an absolute professional, and gave us exactly what we wanted in a wedding ceremony. Simple, elegant, and romantic was what we wanted and what we got. Peter followed up any questions we had and was on top of our marriage license so that it was waiting for us in the mail by the time we got back from the honeymoon. He wasn't pushy, didn't have an agenda or a 'directorial vision' that some officiants want to push. He just wanted to deliver a memorable day for my wife and I. We were thrilled with his performance, and so were all of our family and friends. I can't recommend him enough.
Wedding: 4/1/17 - Sami

Peter was absolutely fabulous. My now wife and I needed a legal ceremony before moving abroad. We were referred to Peter through a friend and after speaking with him only briefly, he put together the perfect ceremony. Not only was the way in which he spoke captivating, but the words he chose were so beautiful in describing marriage and the commitment we were making to one another. Almost every single member of our family and friends came up to us after the ceremony to say how wonderful Peter was, the readings he chose and everything. We were so thrilled, he will be officiating our bigger celebration to renew our vows!
Wedding: 2/27/17 - Kim

My husband and I have the pleasure of knowing Peter both personally and professionally for many years. He is a loyal, devoted friend and always commits wholeheartedly, bringing his unique flare to all endeavors.
 When we decided to marry, there was no question who we wanted to officiate; it had to be Peter. Although our wedding plans evolved from simple to a bit more elaborate, we felt secure in choosing Peter, knowing his involvement was one detail we needn't worry about.
 In preparing our ceremony, he took time to understand our vision and offer suggestions for creating something truly special.
 When Peter sent us the first draft, which was very nearly perfect, we cried; it was so beautiful. He included very specific and personally meaningful details we hadn't even realized he noted during our conversations. There were very few minor revisions we made - adding a name here or there; changing a date. We could not have been any happier with the ceremony Peter crafted for us.
 The wedding itself was wonderful due in large part to Peter's unique, inspired service; his sincerity and professionalism. Many of our guests remarked it was the most beautiful ceremony they'd ever witnessed.
 If you want your wedding to be as joyful and memorable as you can imagine you must choose Peter to create and perform your ceremony; he is absolutely the best.
