Reverend Joy Burke
Saratoga Wedding Officiant

Saratoga Springs, NY


An intimate ceremony, just you two

If this sounds like a good idea, a romantic, elegant elopement may be in your future.  
Historic Saratoga Springs, New York is only 3 hours from New York City, Boston or Montreal, and only one-half hour from Albany International Airport.  It is the perfect getaway location for a wedding you will always remember.  

Options for your elopement ceremony can be at a local restaurant or at any of our beautiful local parks, springs, or historic sites... weather permitting, of course. 

You can choose a religious or secular ceremony, and may bring two witnesses.  My fee for an elegant elopement ceremony in Saratoga Springs starts at $350.  An appointment is required.

A recent groom wrote:  "We were just going to go to the Justice of the Peace to elope, but wanted a little more. Joy gave us a lot more. Her unique and originally composed ceremony was so touching and meaningful it brought tears to both our eyes. She and her lovely home are warmly welcoming. No courtroom could possibly compare."
