When you select me to officiate your wedding, you receive so much more than just an officiant to legitimize your union: I will ensure that your wedding ceremony is an extraordinary experience.

I am an Interfaith Minister, educated, ordained and legally registered to perform ceremonies for couples of all religious and spiritual beliefs. I have been officiating at wedding ceremonies for well over a decade, and have created and performed ceremonies for couples from a wide diversity of paths.

The Way I Work - I offer a free consultation so that we can determine if we are a good fit. If we decide to go ahead, I will compose a unique, personalized marriage ceremony for you.

Marriage Equality - Hooray! - New York State has recognized marriage equality since 2011, and I have proudly officiated many LGBTQ weddings since that time.

Destination Saratoga Weddings - I am happy to discuss the details with you from afar, by phone, skype or email, and am thrilled to help make your Saratoga wedding a great event.

My Fees - Because your wedding ceremony will be one-of-a-kind, I won't be able to tell you exactly what my fee will be until we've had a chance to talk. This is what I can tell you: my fee will be anywhere from $250-$2,500, with most coming in at the $800-$850 range. I have a lot more to say about services and fees on my website.

Questions - feel free to call me at 518.583.4668 or visit my website: www.revjoyburke.com Read less

We found Joy looking for non-denominational officiants as we were hoping to do a ceremony that was a little off the beaten path and not overly religious. We emailed her and she quickly got back to us to set up a time to meet and see if it would be a good fit.

At the initial meeting, after talking for a bit and getting to know each other, Joy had a lot of great ideas which resonated with my fiancee and I, several of which we ended up incorporating into our ceremony. After our meeting we agreed to have Joy officiate our wedding and she soon sent us a bunch of reference material and requested that we provide some specific information about our relationship that would help her craft us the perfect ceremony.

We were a little slow in getting our info back to Joy but she was patient with us. About a month before the big day she sent a draft of our ceremony script and it was amazing. We made a few very minor changes to best suit how we wanted some things to sound then we were on our way!

Joy attended our rehearsal and made sure everyone was on the same page, then on the day of the wedding arrived an hour early to make sure everything was ready to go. The ceremony was exactly what we wanted and we got a ton of compliments from our guests. We are so glad we decided to make Joy a part of our wedding and would happily recommend her to anyone looking for an excellent Officiant in the Capital Region.

Joy did such an amazing job with our ceremony! When she sent us the draft for the ceremony script my husband and I were blown away. It was absolutely perfect. She told the story of how we met, things we like to do together and even worked in one of our favorite quotes. She truly made it about us. We received many compliments from our guests on how beautiful our ceremony was. Many of them had never seen the tying of the knot, it was a huge hit!

Joy is honestly one of the most professional, clam, caring and kind people I have ever met. We loved the fact that she always made herself available. We sent many emails to her asking advice on ceremony readings and vow writing. Without Joy our ceremony would not have been as meaningful.

Absolutely amazing to work with.
She gave awesome ideas to make our ceremony a little different than the traditional. Our guests loved it. She even met us the Monday after the wedding so we could get our marriage certificate quickly and get the name change process done sooner, for military reasons.

My husband and i would highly recommend her to anyone and everyone.

I am so pleased with Joy Burke! From the first meeting all the way through to the end she was professional , receptive, and a pleasure to work with. She truly captured our relationship and expressed it so well to our family and friends. She is open and honest about what she thinks will work for the ceremony and I advise you listen to her because she knows what she is doing! There is not one thing I would change about the ceremony. She set the stage for a day filled with love and laughter, and I can not put a price on that!
