We wanted our ceremony to be a little bit religious because of our family background, but didn't want to be overly pushy about our religion either.  Joy found a way to bring these pieces into our ceremony in a perfect way.  Our guests went on and on about how it was the BEST ceremony they've ever seen.

If it wasn't for the amazing Saratoga Wedding Officiant ~ Reverend Joy Burke, our ceremony wouldn't have been nearly as beautiful and creative as it turned out to be. She channeled my energy, took in all our crazy ideas and formulated something truly wonderful that we will cherish forever.

Joy's sure hand and experience shaped a beautiful ceremony for us...two newbies to both the idea of marriage and the practical matters of a planning one. She tailored our vows to reflect what was most personally meaningful to us, but more important, she spoke to the universality of what we were embarking on and showed us that we were taking part in a tradition much larger than ourselves.

Our memories of the wedding itself could not be more positive – and your particular role in the ceremony helped make it really special.  Everyone thought you did such a great job.

Reverend Joy Burke was absolutely amazing to work with.  She wrote a personal ceremony for us and incorporated all of the aspects that we wanted in our ceremony.  After the wedding, we received many comments about how unique and "us" the ceremony was.

Since we weren't getting married in a church we wanted our ceremony to be unique, meaningful and about us.  After meeting with Joy I knew she would help create the ceremony we were looking for.  She had great suggestions with unique ideas and ton of resources for us to personalize certain aspects.  After the ceremony everyone kept telling us it was the best ceremony!  We couldn't agree more and we have Joy to thank for that!!!

Joy was such an amazing officiant!  My wife and I are a same-sex couple and we were so happy to find someone who sees love as love.  We were told multiple times after the wedding that it was the best ceremony they had ever heard.

 Thank you so much for making our day amazing. All of our guests loved the ceremony and it is the one part of the wedding that I wish we had a video of.  I feel like I was in a daze staring at Jaime! We can’t say enough great things about you and we have every intention of posting fabulous reviews of our wedding. Thank you so much for keeping me calm and taking such great care of us.

My fiancé and I married in Saratoga in a beautiful, simple, elopement ceremony officiated by Joy. She made us feel comfortable right from the start, and her passion for making our day special was evident from the first conversation we had! It made for abeautiful day, and memories that will last a lifetime!

We were so grateful for the service you put together.  It fit us perfectly and I especially appreciated your professionalism.  It was so valuable to me that I didn't have to worry about the ceremony at all.  You also went way above and beyond meeting us at the clerk's office.  I can't tell you how much we appreciated that.  It has helped us get our new life moving very quickly (and we can't wait to get it moving!).  A sincere, heartfelt thank you from both of us.

I have to tell you, we are getting SO many compliments on our wedding ceremony. You'd expect them on the reception (which was also amazing) but hardly anyone ever comments on the ceremony. We can't believe how beautiful and how US it was.
-Liz & Peter

Because of people like you, Becca and I are able to be married.  Thank you so much for the perfect words, your wisdom and guidance on that day.  You are the best!

The ceremony was beyond what we could have even imagined. I'm sure you've heard this before because you are so talented at what you do, but so many of our guests have been telling us they have never been to such a heartfelt and emotional wedding, that is thanks to you!
