Peter was excellent!! We did our marriage license signing over Zoom, and he was absolutely wonderful. So kind, spoke beautifully, and helped make one of the happiest days of our lives so special. Also, really appreciate how communicative, responsive, and organized he is. We highly recommend using Peter...thank you so much again Peter!!

Peter was a dream to work with. While these times of COVID certainly make things different, Peter kept the tradition and love alive in our ceremony. From our first zoom call with Peter we instantly hit it off. He was able to craft a ceremony that weaved in Jewish and Christian elements with a modern twist. Buckle up and bring your tissues when Peter delivers the ceremony. He controls the room and captivates the audience (Live and Virtual) with his charm and wit. Thank you Peter for making our day unforgettable!

Our Zoom wedding held by Peter was so much better than we could have expected! He made it feel special even during a time like 2020.

Due to the pandemic we had to restructure our wedding, which included needing to find an officiant in NYC. We interviewed with a few individuals but upon first speaking with Peter, we were instantly sold, and could not have been happier with the decision! He took the time to get to know us, and checked in with us a few times to ensure the ceremony was exactly how we wanted it to be. On the day of the wedding, he was professional, knowledgeable, personable, funny, poised, and genuine. Both my partner and I were nothing but impressed, and so were our guests apparently, since every single one later questioned who he was as they thought he was perfect. If you are looking for an officiant in the NYC-area, please, we cannot recommend Peter enough, and I imagine you will be just as impressed, grateful, and moved as us and our guests were. Peter, thank you for making our day just perfect!

Peter was the best officiant I've ever worked with! (This is my second marriage, so that's not a totally strange comment. :) ) Peter responded to my online inquiry within an hour, and was very easy to work with regarding scheduling a time for officiating our ceremony. He has Venmo payments (among others) set up, which makes things super easy and convenient in these funny times. We requested just a license signing ceremony - no traditional wedding speech - but Peter still said some beautiful words to make it feel more special and less business-like, while still keeping things short and simple. We were also surprising our witness, and he asked ahead of time if there was anything he'd like us to do to have him play into the surprise, and then went along with it perfectly. Our witness was surprised and giddy with excitement for the rest of the day, and I fully attribute that to Peter's officiation of our ceremony. He mixed humor and sentimentality together beautifully, and made the day so very special. I will absolutely recommend him to other friends of mine, whether they're getting married over Zoom like we did, at a socially-distanced outdoor wedding, or at a bigger traditional wedding one day when this pandemic is over.
     It's also worth mentioning that my laptop was doing something very strange, trying to pipe the sound in and out of my external monitor, and Peter was incredibly patient while I tried to figure that out (thankfully my now-husband had seen this happen before and fixed it when I called him over). Peter kept talking while we figured it out so we'd be able to know when the sound was coming through correctly, and laughed it off with no issue. Is it really a good wedding if *something* didn't go wrong?

When we decided to get married if someone had said "That's wonderful! Why don't you do it on a Zoom call with a total stranger?" I think we probably would've answered with some version of "You should probably see a doctor about that." But that's exactly what we did and the reason it turned out such a day was because the "total stranger" turned out to be Peter Boruchwitz, a joyous, funny yet spiritual celebrant who guided us through our last moments of our lives' "singleness." Needless to say, thanks to him thecrazy world we live in now became far less so thanks to him and we highly recommend him to any couple looking for a similar experience.

Today marks a very important day in my life. WE'RE GETTING MARRIED!!! With this pandemic, we couldn't have the wedding that we dreamed of. I was fortunate enough to find Peter. My husband and I were nervous at first and he made us feel comfortable and made us laugh a couple of times. Peter made the virtual wedding magnificent, definitely a day to remember forever. Peter we just want you to know we appreciate you for Pronouncing us married and whenever this pandemic is over we will be calling you back once more for our dream wedding.

Peter made the process of doing our online marriage very simple, especially since in these times, it is a bit harrowing with having to do the process online. Peter emailed back quickly, helped along the way, and got everything set for us painlessly! He was very friendly and professional and I would happily recommend him to anyone!

Peter was fantastic! Our virtual ceremony was personable, funny, romantic and overall exactly what we wanted. Our guests all commented on how it seemed as if he knew my husband and I our entire lives. To all of those in search of an officiant, Peter will not disappoint. He is prompt in answering e-mails, pays attention to details and will make your wedding memorable!

Peter was outstanding! (!!!). We went for the no-frills package but Peter turned it into a much more substantial ceremony by adding his insights and good will. He turned what we thought would just be the 'mechanics' of getting married into something quite meaningful for both of us.

So happy I picked Peter. He was amazing, funny, made us feel so comfortable (we was a nervous wreck). After months of having to cancel and reschedule our wedding we decided to just do it, and he made the simplest of I Do's feel like something from a fairy tale. It was fun, it was us, it was perfect. Trying to get married in 2020, lol. Definitely go with Peter. I promise you wont regret it.

Peter delivered such a great message on our special day. We originally “met” Peter over FaceTime because of the pandemic and even though we hadn’t met in person, we knew he was the right choice. We met a few other officiants before but the personalities weren’t a good fit. His turnaround time with emails is amazing and I’ve sent a whole lot!!! It was a very stressful time due to the pandemic but he did his best to ensure us that things will go smoothly. He sent us everything to proof ahead of time and made everything very personal. Our family raved about him afterwards. The officiant can add or subtract to the energy and the vibes were definitely good! He’s the best !

Having a zoom wedding is a different experience and we had no idea what to expect. We are so happy we found Peter! He made the experience so easy. Our actual online ceremony was more than expected. Peter made it like he knew us personally. Our zoom guests said they cried, I definitely did. We had family from Ireland, Norway and Florida who were able to join us. Peter thank you for a beautiful ceremony, we will remember it always. I can’t recommend him enough! Engaging, eloquent, full of personality, sense of humor, personable, I can go on and on.

My Husband and I reached out to Peter to host our online wedding ceremony. We had to postpone our destination wedding due to Covid. We still wanted to get married and share something special. Peter, our wonderful and kind online officiant did just that! He shared thoughtful words that made our wedding day in our home so incredibly special. In a time like this, when much is unknown, Peter brought comfort and unity to our ceremony. His upbeat personality got us excited from the moment he joined Zoom, and he made the experience unforgettable. Peter, thank you again for providing such a wonderful ceremony. We appreciate it greatly!

My husband and I were beyond happy with Peter’s services! From the very first e-mail (which he responded to super fast—he’s fantastic with communication!) he just made us feel so comfortable and he was easy to talk to, down to earth, super sincere and very passionate about making sure we had the perfect ceremony.
Peter gave us many options on the different readings and was willing to tweak anything that we might have not liked or wanted worded differently. He is a very good listener and really knows what he’s doing. He’s amazing at what he does and you can really tell he loves making people happy. He made our wedding ceremony so special; it was beautiful and it was like a dream come true. Even our guests loved him and one of our friends even said to my husband, “when I get married one day, I want Peter to be my officiant!”
Our guests were so impressed and had such a lovely time. Everybody commented what a beautiful ceremony it was and what an amazing job Peter did.
My husband and I are so happy that Peter was our officiant. He truly is amazing and we highly recommend him! He will make the happiest day of your life something out of a fairytale!

Peter was amazing. Getting married during these times are certainly not ideal but Peter made it special. Always on hand to answer any questions prior to the ceremony. So glad we had him to officiate our special moment!

Peter Boruchowitz was absolutely amazing.During this pandemic we had to do our ceremony online (zoom to be exact) and Peter was the perfect officiant. He made it feel special. I would strongly recommend Peter Boruchowitz. Thank you again Peter Boruchowitz for our online ceremony.

Peter was very professional and friendly when we worked with him on our online zoom wedding. We are both internationals, so we are not familiar with the wedding procedures in the US. Peter explained to us in details with patience. He always responded very fast with emails. During the ceremony, his smile, his presence and his speech really brightened up the wedding. Thanks, Peter! I highly recommend him!

My wife and I absolutely adored Peter. Despite marrying during a pandemic, Peter made the experience really special for us. He was quick with responding to our inquiries and made himself available in such a short notice, stress and worry free. He was very charming and had us smiling the whole time. One never knows what to expect with making an important and very memorable decision on short notice, BUT I am so very happy we stumbled upon Peter and he becoming the chosen one for us. Even though we chose the simple "I do's" virtual package, it was everything that we had expected, plus more. We enjoyed Peter's services so much that we are having him marry us again, (this time in person) to make it an even better and extra special experience, involving our loved ones brought together, for a traditional ceremony, later on this year. Peter- Thank you so much again. You are just the absolute kindest and sincere gentleman. We are very excited to share not one, but two special events with you. Bonus and something to consider- We received our marriage certificate exactly 6 days later!! He means business.

During this pandemic it was wonderful to see that Gov. Cuomo made it possible for couples wanting to get married to still be able to do so. When we heard, we signed up for a marriage license with Project Cupid. That experience was quick and pretty bland, but I guess thats not really the celebratory part. Once that was done we decided to get married ASAP. After a quick google search we stumbled upon Peter. I can't say enough about how awesome he is. He made our virtual wedding so personal and perfect. I couldn't have hoped for more from a Zoom Wedding or any kind of wedding to be honest. We hope once this pandemic is over we can meet him in person to officiate our own little ceremony for our friends and fam. Thanks Peter!

Peter was an absolute joy to work with for our wedding. He was very communicative and made the entire process seamless. I can't recommend him highly enough. I didn't have high hopes for our zoom wedding, but Peter made our wedding day that much more special despite the circumstances with his heartfelt words.

We had a Zoom online wedding due to the pandemic. After a quick search, Peter was the first and best choice. The hiring process was quick and easy. The ceremony was great. I don’t think I could’ve found anyone better for my wedding. Peter is really good at what he does and I would recommend him to anyone.

My husband and I had a very intimate zoom wedding ceremony with Peter Boruchowitz. I must confess, I didn't know what to expect since its our first time getting married. I thought it'll be a quick "I do," sign forms and the boom the zoom meeting would be over.. but i was wrong. Peter Boruchowitz made our ceremony immensely special, I cannot express this enough! I will forever remember his kind words that almost felt like our very own vows lol I am hoping when the pandemic is over and we finally plan a ceremony where the rest of my family can join, I would rebook Peter as our officiant without hesitations due to his professionalism, generosity, patience and the level of service he provided. I am so thankful we were able to do this with Peter instead of a city clerk official. Thank you so much for everything you did!

Peter made our ceremony as romantic and cozy as it could be during this weird time. We had a great time, everything was just perfect. Even though it was said that there would be simple "I do's", still it was proper wedding ceremony with atmosphere of love. If you are looking for the officiant, Peter is the best!
PS: The signed license was sent back to us in less than an hour.

Peter was in short a perfect officiant. We had a really rushed time period for the ceremony, we were trying to get married within a week, during the middle of the pandemic, and we wanted to do it in central park. Peter suggested some fantastic locations, one of which we chose. The location he chose was intimate and private, exactly what we wanted, and he showed up an hour early to hold it for us. He closed off the walk way with a sign that said "wedding in progress", an adorable and thoughtful extra on his part. His professionalism and good nature during the whole ceremony made the day perfectly memorable. Both of our mothers are still talking about how wonderful his speech was, and given the opportunity I would recommend him a thousand times over. There's a ton of bad going on in the world right now, and Peter made our lives that little bit more hopeful. Thank you Peter!

Peter Boruchowitz performed a really nice ceremony for me and my partner during the COVID-19 situation. We were married online and Peter did his very best to make the ceremony memorable for us. He even said a few special words about the meaning of marriage and the symbology of wedding bands. Thank you so much, Peter!

The Covid-19 crisis of our time has had a significant impact on all our lives. With a world at a standstill, that one could never expect at any given moment all things had ceased to exist. My husband and I were so fortunate to have found Peter Boruchowitz. Mr. Boruchowitz married us late in May just as my husband and I thought all might be lost. We finally had just come together at a later part of our lives of over 20 years that life pulled us apart, I to the military and John’s a different path. Due to Mr. Boruchowitz’ due diligence, he cared enough to make all things possible for John and I to be together and we couldn’t thank him enough. The reason Mr. Boruchowitz has top ranking among all wedding officiants is the quality of service he performs for his client. When you choose Mr. Boruchowitz you choose the best and he will be well recommended to everyone we know. John and I couldn’t thank him enough to make our special day possible.

We contacted Mr. Boruchowitz asking to lead our virtual ceremony during these unprecedented times. Mr. Boruchowitz responded quickly and professionally and really made an effort to make the short ceremony an event to remember, which meant a lot to us. I would recommend Mr. Boruchowitz to any couple, I am sure he will also make your ceremony (virtual or non-virtual) one to remember!

Peter was absolutely amazing. Our original wedding plans were hijacked by covid19 but here came Peter to the rescue! With his help we organized and held an online ceremony via zoom in a matter of two days. Our zoom wedding had close to 70 participants and everyone truly had an amazing time. Peter is a captivating speaker and can work a crowd like no other. Everyone was listening and smiling as he opened the ceremony, read passages and even included our virtual ring boy in our ceremony. Thank you for making this day one we will never forget!
