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. 


It is my good fortune to live in a beautifully converted 1869 Methodist church building in downtown Saratoga Springs. I would be happy to welcome you to my lovely front parlor for your elegant elopement wedding ceremony.  

You can choose a religious or secular ceremony, and may bring two witnesses. 
The fee for an elopement ceremony at this beautiful venue is only $250.  An appointment is required.

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

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."
