It brings me joy and satisfaction to unite couples in marriage. An Ordained Minister, I am also a Registered Wedding Officiant in New York City. I am happy that I am now able to offer my services to ALL COUPLES in New York.

My diverse background has uniquely prepared me for a role as an officiant. After graduating from New York University’s Theater Department in 1979, I worked as a professional extra on shows such as “Law and Order” and “The Equalizer.” I have also appeared off-Broadway and in films.

My theatrical experience has taught me to feel comfortable speaking in front of large groups; thus I am at ease officiating a wedding with four or 400 guests.

Leaving the acting world behind, I became a massage therapist and Reiki practitioner. The ability to create a calm and relaxing environment was vital, and I have carried that skill with me as a minister.

I believe it is my duty to provide couples with a thoroughly pleasant and stress-free wedding day, one that will be cherished by everyone present, but most importantly by the two people committing their love to each other.

If you are looking for a wedding officiant, you can stop right here and choose Peter. My partner and I are from Kansas and we found his site online. Obviously, we took a chance since we were being married in NYC. Peter was professional, eloquent, handsome and everything we could have hoped for. He corresponded with us in advance about what we wanted in our ceremony, we responded, and he did the work. The ceremony itself was absolutely beautiful. We cannot thank him enough for his professionalism and for making our special day so perfect.

Peter was a tremendous example of professionalism, looking and acting the part perfectly. He was responsive to our vision of the ceremony in the planning stages, and more than willing to make appropriate changes when asked. At the ceremony itself, he commanded the room, holding all of our guests attention and helping us through the vows with charm and grace. We would absolutely recommend him to others.

We are from Dallas and traveled to New York for our wedding. I cannot tell you how wonderful Peter was. First, he was so helpful in the planning stage and through his experience and efficiency made planning the ceremony so easy. As for the wedding itself, Peter was amazing. First of all, he looks the part. He will be a great addition to your pictures. Even more importantly, his conduct of the wedding was perfect. His theatrical training and great voice was obvious. He read the words of his service with such warmth and emotion, as if he had known us for years. While I had read the words on paper in advance, they took on new meaning hearing them said by him. Anyone considering an officiant should stop when they get to Peter.

Peter was a perfect choice as our officiant. He was quick to respond and helped us out with both the venue and the wording of the ceremony, and was easy to work with, tailoring the ceremony to our wishes.
He put together a beautiful ceremony despite the short time frame we had given him.

He was also very quick in handing in the paper work to the City Clerk resulting in us getting our marriage license sooner than we had expected.

Peter is an absolute professional that understands your wants and needs.

I recommend this officiant, totally. Peter did excellent, top-notch professional work. He was in communication all the way -- We didn't have to worry or wonder about how this day would go. We had certainty all along the way. As we were from out of town, it was very helpful that he communicated quickly and responsively, and saved us from making mistakes in getting our license and timing, etc. He appreciated the vows we chose and performed the ceremony extremely well -- this was exactly the kind of great experience we wanted for our special day. We chose to pay a little more for his services and do not regret it at all: You get what you pay for. We were fully and completed satisfied.

Peter was an extremely professional officiant for our wedding. He was impeccably dressed, very well spoken, and more importantly, was extremely low-stress. He was understanding of our needs, and was more than willing to adapt to make our day that much more meaningful to us. Peter offered us several great suggestions, which helped lessen our stress. It was great to have the expert work with us to make a truly memorable ceremony. My wife and I were honored to have him be a part of our day. We knew he was the right choice right from the beginning, when we skyped with him and he was very understanding of our desired plan of events. Peter, thank you, thank you, thank you!!!

Peter was an excellent choice to conduct our wedding ceremony. He was very thorough, prompt to respond, and a fabulous speaker. We got many praises on our ceremony and for Peter as well. My mother is still talking about him and this is the fifth wedding she has hosted. It's normal for her to talk about how great a wedding she hosted is but never before has she ever spoken of the officiant so he made quite and impression! She is still complaining that I didn't make programs and put Peter's name in them to give him proper recognition.

Peter gave a beautiful and unforgettable marriage ceremony for us in New York City. We really valued his attentive support and professionalism in helping us put together an order of service that we both loved, and for helping us to make it so personal. Peter has a great energy and truly exceptional delivery – he was completely clear and audible, despite having to compete against loud NYC traffic. We received about a dozen lovely comments from guests mentioning how much they enjoyed the ceremony. Also, as a nervous groom, it was great to hang out with him in the moments leading up to the ceremony and have a laugh to ease the tension! We wouldn't hesitate to recommend Peter to anyone getting married in the New York area, or for any significant life event for that matter. If you're looking for an officiant who offers great value for money, and heaps of personality, then look no further.

We are truly lucky to find Peter as our officiant! We were so impressed by his professionalism through out the whole wedding process. He was very responsive when we had any questions before and after the wedding.

During the wedding, Peter helped put us at ease during the biggest day in our lives. To say the least, we were quite nervous and had second thoughts about saying our own vows to each other during the wedding ceremony. However, with Peter's encouragement, we had the confidence to say our vows to each other. And we are truly happy we did!

Thank you so much Peter for making it such a beautiful ceremony.

Peter officiated at our wedding recently. Here is the text of an e mail I sent to him -
"After our five days in New York and two weeks in South Florida we are now back in the UK. We held our UK wedding reception Sunday just gone. It feels like our wedding has lasted for a month! We placed a copy of our ceremony in our wedding photograph album. All of our guests commented on how beautiful the wows were and how cool you looked.

This is just a small note to say a big thank you for officiating at our wedding in Central Park on May 3rd 2013. We do not believe we could have chosen a better officiant. You were the perfect blend of fun, emotion, professionalism and charm. We are so happy we chose you.

You may remember Pei Chin Faison played four pieces on her violin for us also. She commented that it was the most beautiful occasion. You more than played your part in that.

As promised, I have attached a photograph of the me, Julie and your good self.

Thank you so much for what you did.

We will be in New York at some time in the future and would love to take you to lunch or dinner as our guest. "

Also worthy of note, is that Peter did everything he said he would, exactly when he said he would do it, which when you are arranging a wedding is essential. You may think this is a small thing, but it is rare in the modern world. Finally, his voice is simply beautiful.

Working with Peter Boruchowitz was a great experience, and we would highly recommend his services. Throughout the planning process of the wedding ceremony he was very supportive, patient and helpful, and worked closely to us in order to ensure that the ceremony fulfilled all our expectations. Peter's services are characterized not only by very high professional standards, but also by equally high human qualities that make working with him a pleasure. He was always kind and attentive to our needs, and demonstrated a genuine interest in getting to know the bride and groom in order to make the ceremony as personal and customized as possible. Our entire family enjoyed the wedding ceremony, and all our guests were very impressed by the way in which he conducted the ceremony -pointing out Peter's nice and clear tone of voice, the beautiful messages that he shared during the ceremony, and the fact that his words were really heart felt. We look forward to working with Peter again, in future anniversaries and celebrations.

Throughout the planning process of the wedding ceremony he was very supportive, patient and helpful, and worked closely to us in order to ensure that the ceremony fulfilled all our expectations. Peter's services are characterized not only by very high professional standards, but also by equally high human qualities that make working with him a pleasure. He was always kind and attentive to our needs, and demonstrated a genuine interest in getting to know the bride and groom in order to make the ceremony as personal and customized as possible. Our entire family enjoyed the wedding ceremony, and all our guests were very impressed by the way in which he conducted the ceremony -pointing out Peter's nice and clear tone of voice, the beautiful messages that he shared during the ceremony, and the fact that his words were really heart felt. We look forward to working with Peter again, in future anniversaries and celebrations. Read less

We cannot say enough positive things about Peter and the ceremony he performed for us at our wedding! To begin, Peter met with us to discuss the kind of ceremony we wanted and he had already looked at our website that we had sent to him. He wanted to really get a feel for us as a couple, how we met, and what we wanted for our wedding. After talking with him for awhile, there was no need to 'think it over,' even though he urged us to do so. We hired him on the spot! I should mention that neither my husband or I are very impulsive people, but Peter was just so warm and understood our vision immediately that it was a no-brainer. Peter loved the story of how we almost didn't make it to a first date and he thought it would be great to incorporate into the ceremony. We also talked to him about the debate my husband and I have over the story of the Giving Tree. He actually added both into the ceremony and he crafted a beautiful ring warming ceremony (which we really wanted included). He completely built everything around us as a couple and incorporated our guests into the ceremony (which is what we wanted most). He was wide open to any suggestions or changes we wanted and it took very few back and forth emails before the ceremony was perfect (it was pretty close to perfect already when he sent us the first draft). I should also mention that Peter met us at our venue (Spice Market Restaurant) just to get a feel for the place and help us think through the logistics for the day. He didn't have to do that, but he actually offered and stayed a long time with us figuring things out. The day of the wedding, he was on time, looked great, and we didn't worry about anything in Peter's hands. The ceremony was beautiful, expressed by Peter in a very warm, strong voice, and guests LOVED him!!! I cannot recommend Peter highly enough. He's fantastic and you can tell that he loves what he does!!!! Guests came up to us throughout the day to mention how awesome he was!

My husband and I were recently married in September of 2010 at The Old Courthouse in Cleveland, Ohio and Peter Boruchowitz was our Wedding Officiant. We are so grateful to have met Peter and to have had him officiate our special day! Upon first meeting Peter, he was friendly, knowledgeable and receptive of our desires for our wedding ceremony. My husband and I felt we could trust him and were confident in his abilities. We requested that he officiate our wedding ceremony that same day!
Peter was available from that point on via email, telephone and in person. My husband and I found it more efficient to talk via email. Peter always replied in a timely manner and was again open to all of our requests and needs. When the day of our wedding came, Peter was at our ceremony location early and talked with us briefly before the ceremony which helped my husband and I feel more at ease. We could not have been more thrilled with our ceremony and Peter’s work. The ceremony was personal and a reflection of my husband and I in every way! Peter’s words were beautiful. My family, my husband’s family and all of our friends continue to tell us how perfect our ceremony was and how professional Peter was.
Peter provided my husband and I with a wedding ceremony we will never forget. Peter’s services were affordable and professional. My husband and I know we made the right decision to have Peter officiate our wedding and would recommend him to our closest family and friends as well as any couple out there who have decided to tie the knot! Peter, thank you from the bottom of our hearts! We wish you the best in everything your future holds.

Sincerely,

Kristen & Mark Mitchell

Peter was completely professional. He guided us through the marriage application process. The ceremony was arranged well ahead of time with care and creativity. Peter's arrival at the ceremony was spot on-time and he was very professionally dressed. This was a same-sex marriage and he was exceptional in taking care of us. He came to our suite at the Waldorf-Astoria and event brought a "witness" for us, since we did not have one. Perfect all the way around! I am already recommending him to same-sex couples here in Florida who want to be married in New York!
