Saratoga Wedding Officiant / Rev. Joy Burke / Elope Saratoga
As unique as your love story 

Marriage is the most significant and sacred union of two people.  Now you acknowledge your promise to one another.  You announce to your family, your friends and to the world that you two will become one.

When you select me to officiate at your wedding, you receive so much more than just an officiant to legitimize your union.  

Tell me about yourselves and your plans and dreams for your wedding day. 

I will listen to you as you share your vision
for your wedding, for your marriage,
and for your past and future together. 

I will advise you regarding elements of the ceremony
such as readings, songs, rituals and traditions.

I will guide you in preparing your
very own personal vows of commitment. 

And I will prepare and officiate a bespoke 
ceremony that is all about the two of you. 

By the time your very special day arrives, you and everyone who witnesses your wedding ceremony will see a reflection of the true light of who you are, as individuals and as a couple, and what your marriage vows mean to you.

 Magic has a price

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:   A simple mid-week elope-ment with just the two of you and two witnesses starts at $350.  
A hand-crafted, unique and personalized wedding ceremony, totally fabulous and reflective of your love story, including all meetings, consultations, travel and officiating, will likely be in the range of $1,00-$2,000. 

Once we have determined that we want to work together to create your ceremony, a letter agreement will be provided outlining our discussion.  A non-refundable retainer fee of 50% is required to hold your date and time.  The balance will be due prior to the wedding ceremony.   

Let’s sit down for a free consultation so that we can determine if we are a good fit.  Once we decide to go ahead, I will work with you to prepare your unique, personalized marriage ceremony.
