Your perfect wedding starts with your perfect ceremony. It's traditional or modern, spiritual or secular, short & sweet or a reflection of your cultures. Or mix and match! You CAN have exactly what you want, but it will always be memorable, meaningful and respectful of your values.

As your officiant, I will guide you in planning a Wedding Ceremony that reflects your relationship, as you define it. Because I am passionate that each Wedding Ceremony is as distinctive as each couple, I invite you to participate in preparing your ceremony by writing your own vows or by selecting from my library, which offers a diversity of choices from spiritual to civil ceremonies.

Read my reviews to see what other couples say about my officiant services. Call or email me to find out if I'm available on your wedding day. Then, tell me your love story, and I will create and perform a marriage ceremony that will be the heart of your wedding day.

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!

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!

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.
Thank you Peter!

My husband and I travelled over from the UK to marry in New York and wanted something simple just for the two of us. We found Peter online and he had brilliant reviews, responded quickly to my emails and was happy to venture out on Christmas Eve so we booked him up! Neither me or my husband really had any ideas about what we wanted for the ceremony, even down to our wedding location, but Peter gave us many suggestions and even recommended a great spot in Central Park which turned out to be absolutely perfect! Peter found us a witness and recommended a photographer, he arrived to our location early battling the cold and after the ceremony waited for us to get photographs, but most of all seemed genuinely happy and excited to marry us. We couldn't recommend him enough. Thank you Peter!

Working with Peter for our wedding was wonderful. Peter was very professional with a personal touch that we immediately connected with. He offered great advice and direction in the preparation of our ceremony whilst also being flexible with us while we mulled over readings and words. On the day he was a wonderfully calming presence for the two of us and the ceremony went perfectly, catered to us and our vibe beautifully. His words were very touching and many guests mentioned how well he captured our essence during the ceremony. We would definitely recommend Peter!

Absolutely amazing! We are not sure where to start... Actually, we had no idea where to start and what to do as we are from two different continents. Peter guided us through the entire process which finished overlooking the Brooklyn Bridge at sunset (his idea). We wanted to keep the ceremony within our tradition (Scottish and German) and Peter ensured that we kept those in a very private ceremony. If we could do it over again, we would have taped it, as his words were personal, befitting the ceremony, our culture, our reason for marriage and simply made it about us. We recommend Peter highly, no matter what continent you are from and trust us, it will be about your special day.

Let me start off by saying that Peter is the absolute best officiant out there. Planning a wedding is beyond stressful and time consuming, but Peter made the actual ceremony planning process a breeze. He was very quick to answer emails, very professional, extremely organized and has such a fantastic personality.
After our first meeting, Peter quickly provided a draft of the ceremony and let my now husband and I review/edit as many times as needed (His ceremony was so great I barely made any changes to it)
On the day of my wedding, I was feeling like an anxiety ridden Bridezilla. Anything that could go wrong was going wrong EXCEPT for Peter. My 2 readers forgot to bring copies of their readings which at perfect timing Peter so graciously handed them each copies he had printed. He was kind enough to direct the groom and groomsmen on how to line up and prepare before the ceremony. And most importantly he started the wedding off on a beautiful note. So many of my guest complimented on Peter and the ceremony. The ceremony was a huge hit.

My advice to any Bride reading this choose Peter, that is one decision I can guarantee you will be beyond pleased with.

What can I say about Peter? He was available on relatively short notice and I planned to speak with others on the phone, but after talking to him, I booked him on the spot. He is warm, inviting, and his voice really projects (at an outdoor NYC wedding where you can't bring a sound system, this was awesome). He made a point to tailor the ceremony exactly for us. Many of our guests asked how we knew him since it just felt so personal. He also mentioned are little dog in the ceremony, which made us so happy. Whatever you want, he will work it in, and he was very sensitive to my concerns about how the ceremony should be. Also, he just seems to really believe what he was saying. There was a weight to his words, not like he was running through the motions at all. We had the loveliest ceremony, and I can't thank Peter enough for helping make it so wonderful!

My now husband and I could not be more thrilled with the job that Peter did as our wedding officiant. My husband and I met Peter in a coffee shop to discuss the wedding and see how we vibed. We were pleasantly surprised and booked Peter the very next day. Peter was extremely responsive over email and he crafted beautiful wedding vows that shared the story of how my husband and I met, and the love we have for one another. The day of the wedding Peter arrived an hour ahead of schedule, and was impeccably dressed in a suit with a purple tie to match our wedding colors. After the ceremony numerous friends and family members came up to me raving about the wonderful job that Peter did. I'm genuinely pleased with his services and would highly recommend him to anyone I know getting married!
