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-$950 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

Although I am a christian woman, my husband to be was not as religious and wanted a more intimate service then a church service. Through various internet searches we came across many officiants. For some reason, Rev Joy Burke stood out and we gave her a call. After a few calls and emails, we knew she was the one to marry us and she officiated a lovely ceremony for us. We live in Philadelphia and wanted a Saratoga wedding; she directed us in the process for NY state and made great recommendations for beautiful venues.
On our big day, all our guests were inspired by her insight on love, marriage , trust and the life long commitment we were making with each other. I would recommend Rev Joy over any officiant in the NY area and even if I was out of state, we would fly her in! She is just a genuine and caring person who's main goal is to make sure your wedding day and ceremony is one to remember.
Thank you so much Rev Joy!

Our wedding day was made even more special simply having made the choice to have Joy officiate. She is a wonderful human being, and the ceremony that she wrote for us was nothing short of phenomenal. We were positive we had made the right decision about Joy the first day we met her, months before the wedding. She made every effort to get to know the two of us as well as possible, and her words during the ceremony were personal and special to us. After the ceremony many guests commented on how beautifully she spoke and how inspiring the ceremony was to them as well.

Joy was absolutely the best officiant we could have asked for. She truly cared about us and our values, and took the time to get to know us and our relationship. She strives to make your ceremony personal and unique, and absolutely delivers! She was able to create an amazing ceremony for us and our family, and with all her experience, there wasn't a single flaw. She speaks from the heart, and it was perfectly reflected in our ceremony. We felt like she had known us for years, and we couldn't have imagined being married by anyone else! After the ceremony we had many of our guest comment on how personal and beautiful the ceremony was; it truly set the tone for an amazing night. Joy is without a doubt the most amazing officiant we could've imagined having for our wedding.

After walking out of our first meeting with Joy, we immediately knew that we would be letting her handle our ceremony. She worked with us and created an absolutely beautiful ceremony. All of our guests were in awe (and tears) of her words and we get compliments all the time. I am forever grateful to her for making our ceremony as memorable as it was.

My husband and I were married by Joy on 9/16/16. She was recommended to us by our Wedding Venue and was at the top of their list as one of their favorite vendors (not surprisingly!). The minute we walked out of our first meeting with Joy we knew she was the one. She was kind, professional, and so excited to learn about us as individuals and as a couple. Joy worked with us to make our wedding ceremony unique and personal to us. She was able to incorporate the most important and meaningful aspects of our relationship into it. She had people laughing, crying, and enjoying every second (and how often does that happen?!). Our ceremony turned out to be the most beautiful and most memorable part of our entire wedding day, as it should be! So, if you want a Reverend who is dedicated to making your wedding ceremony beautiful, unique and special to you as a couple, there is no one better! Thank you Joy, for being a part of the most beautiful moment on the best day of our lives! It will forever be one of our best memories!

Our ceremony was amazing!! Joy is so professional and made it incredibly easy to construct a creative and tailored ceremony with all of the elements we were looking for. I've gone too other weddings where the officiant was ill-prepared and caused the bride and groom more stress. This was NOT the case with Joy! She had printed the readings and vows, delegated our very large wedding party, and had a very calming sense of experience about her. Through out the wedding planning process she was readily available to answer any and all questions. I can't explain how helpful she was. We had a lot of requests(i.e. non-religious with Catholic elements, musical interlude) and she appeased all of them. I highly recommend Joy Burke to be your officiant!
