OUR WEDDING OFFICIANT NYC REVIEWS

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.

★★★★★   5 stars
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?

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.

Amazing person, Peter has great energy and a loving soul. I'm so happy to have had him for my officiant. Would highly recommend. Very professional and extremely fast in responses! Thank you for everything Peter! You’re truly a remarkable person.

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!

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!

If you are looking for someone who will listen to what you want for your special day to make it truly unforgettable, you’re looking at the right officiant!! Peter helped us through the whole thing and was incredible on Day D! Thank you for this amazing ceremony, so authentic and true to ourselves.

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!

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.

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.

It is very hard to know where to begin. We spoke with a number of Officiants before we met with Peter. We liked him right-a-way. He guided us thru the legal steps necessary to proceed with the wedding. He then helped us with suggestions as to how we wanted our ceremony to be performed and was completely open to all our changes. At the wedding, Peter was early so we had a chance to chat and get some of the preliminary paperwork taken care of. He is such a nice person and he helped me, the groom, calm down a bit. Not an easy task. He took control over the room and the guests so that our ceremony could begin, but did so in a warm and welcoming way. Our ceremony was beautiful and most assuredly could not have been so without Peter's participation. Trust me, Peter should be presiding over your wedding ceremony as well.

Peter was sensational! We knew from our initial meeting that we wanted Peter to be our Officiant. Everyone after the wedding commented that he was phenomenal. He performed our ceremony so eloquently and with such conviction. He was such an integral part of our magical day and I couldn't imagine anyone else beginning it for us.

My wife and I wanted to elope in New York City. Central Park was a prime location for us so I began my search on several websites for officiants licensed in NYC. Throughout the process I contacted multiple officiants and Peter was the only one to respond in a timely manner. Peter's email communication was excellent for a couple who is not familiar with NYC. Peter provided wedding license information, elopement locations with videos he created on his website, and Peter secured the ceremony's park permit on our behalf. Peter gave us the ability to modify anything he would say in the ceremony's script and that was very important to us. On the day of the wedding, Peter was on time and gave the ceremony the respect we wanted.
     Peter Boruchowitz is fantastic and incredibly well spoken. I highly recommend booking with him.

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!!

I cannot even express how amazing Peter is! So well and beautifully spoken. He made our wedding day so special and everything felt so personal and genuine. My husband and I flew from Minneapolis MN to get married in our favorite city in our favorite park, and our wedding day in the Conservatory Garden at Wisteria Pergola in Central Park was better than I imagined. Thank you so much for a day we will never ever forget. We felt so special!

Peter was an amazing officiant. His words during the ceremony resonated with everyone particularly us. The guests were drawn to his every word. He also said them passionately which showed he really meant them. Peter was very personable and liked by all. We really enjoyed Peter being a part of our wedding. We couldn’t have asked for more. The day was perfect.

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.

Peter was a huge contributor to the success and the specialness of our wedding ceremony. We found him online, and we were immediately drawn to his professionalism and frankly to his speaking voice. I recommend everyone listen to or watch sample videos from potential officials as they search for the person who will do their ceremony. We watched several. Peter stood out. As we are both actors and performers, that is something we respond to.
    When we met with him for an initial consultation. His professional, respectful demeanor coupled with his knowledge of ceremonies, his ideas, and his friendly openness to our ideas really sealed the deal for us. He was a huge help guiding us into creating the ceremony that eventually would be used in our wedding. He was collaborative in writing the vows, he made incredible suggestions about the flow of the ceremony, he was helpful in guiding us through the legal steps of licensing the marriage, etc., and he was always responsive and understanding of our questions leading up to the event.
    We are fortunate in that there was not much that we would change as we look back on our wedding – perhaps invite more people, but that always comes down to budget. Peter is worth every dime and frankly his fees are very reasonable given the fact that your ceremony will go without a hitch, as ours did. I can’t recommend Peter enough not only as an officiant, but he’s just a really great human. Do yourself a favor and talk contact him about your wedding ceremony, you won’t be disappointed if you make the good choice to choose him for your officiant.

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.

Peter was the most amazing find for our wedding day! Coming from two different faiths, Peter wrote a ceremony that blended aspects of both of our faiths in a seamless and meaningful way. I was very nervous that not having a single faith ceremony would compromise the specialness of our day. However, Peter surprised me. He brings such joy and positive energy that moves the crowd. I cannot tell you how many of our guests reached out to us the next day to comment about how moving the ceremony was. My uncle always told me, "if you have a meaningful ceremony, the energy for the after party will follow". Peter was able to perfectly capture this! Thank you so much for the beautiful memories!

Peter was a wonderful officiant. He worked with us to create a ceremony that was multicultural, loving, and exceptional. We've been to quite a few weddings (though we may be biased) but we've not seen an officiant as good as Peter. We will forever be grateful for his professionalism and guidance. He enabled us to have a ceremony that was personally meaningful to us, combining elements of our Jewish and Catholic traditions in a way that felt beautiful and authentic. We couldn't be happier.
