  • We had to have a very limited gathering due to COVID and were so delighted with the lovely words that Joy shared. Even though it was a small gathering, Joy still made it special with her thoughtful and insightful message about love, kindness, and companionship. This ceremony was in addition to the one we have had to postpone and we are so looking forward to the message that Joy will share with us and our friends and family at our next, post-COVID marriage celebration.

    Jen and Sy, it was so lovely and heartwarming to share some happiness with you during the time of quarantine. I am grateful to have been your officiant, and look forward to the big celebration once the virus has been resolved. Much love to you both. xoxo-Joy

  • My husband and I planned our wedding in 4 days. I found Joy online after we got our marriage license and she had availability on the Friday we wanted. She welcomed our son and us into her home and performed the most beautiful, special ceremony. Afterwards she brought out her sweet dogs Penny and Hannah, whom our son absolutely adored! Thank you Joy for being so accommodating and kind. It was an unforgettable ceremony.

    Amy and Scott, your wedding was proof that you can have a beautiful and sacred ceremony without all the bells and whistles. All you need is love and a marriage license and a little bit of magic. It was my delight to welcome you and your son to my home. Hannah and Penelope have not stopped talking about how nice your son is!

  • If you're looking for a heartfelt, personal, breath-taking ceremony, you NEED to hire Rev. Joy! From start to finish she is an absolute pleasure to work with and completely sets your mind at ease. By weaving in personal touches and custom making your ceremony, you'll be left feeling completely grateful and happy with your decision- my husband and I are! Thank you Joy!

    Alyssa and Luke, your rooftop minimony was not quite what you had planned, but was sacred and beautiful. It was my delight to help you join together as wife and husband on your most memorable day. Much love forever, Joy

  • Reverend Joy Burke helped make our wedding ceremony so special. Her kind, thoughtful words and overall pleasant demeanor let us know right away we had made the right choice. We live outside of the Saratoga, closer to NYC and decided to cancel our original plans and have a private wedding ceremony in a place we frequent and love to visit annually. Despite the fact we did not have familiarity with vendors from the area, Reverend Joy was highly recommended and we can easily understand why! She was easy to work with, was quick to respond and provided us with the words in which solidified our union and warmed our hearts on our most special day. We would recommend her without reservation!

  • Joy is amazing! She knows exactly how to capture a one of a kind ceremony that is perfectly tailored to the couple. She knows exactly what to ask in order to create a perfect summary of each couple's love story. She is patient and has a wealth of knowledge and experience. She is capable of doing all types (religious, casual, personal, ritual oriented, etc, ceremonies). We were in awe of how many of our guests thought she was a friend for years or the pastor of our church!! You wont go wrong with Joy!

    Janelle, you made my day with your kind words. It was such a delight to get to know you and Josh and officiate your wedding ceremony at the Mansion last week. Wishing you both a lifetime of blessings of health and happiness. xoxo-Joy

  • I found Joy on Wedding Wire for our October 5th 2019 wedding. I reached out to Joy about 2 years prior, wanting to lock her in based on amazing reviews. Right away, she was so pleasant and beyond helpful with the whole process. She has amazing examples of vows, readings, etc to help you create your own special ceremony and vows. I grew up in Saratoga Springs, but live in Virginia now. Despite not being close, Joy was available by phone whenever needed, and when my husband and I went up to NY for vacation, we stopped by her wonderful home to touch base a few months before. We had some characters in our wedding party (mainly, the groomsmen :P) and Joy THANKFULLY kept them in line haha! As the bride I had enough to worry about. Our ceremony was magical. Afterwards, I had numerous people come up to me asking about Joy and how they were blown away by her readings, presence, and how she contributed to making that moment so special for us. Joy is a bit pricier than some other off... Read more

    Katie and Danny, working with you for two years was a delight! Your families were so wonderful and your groomsmen were a hoot! It is my greatest honor to have been the one to create your beautifully unique ceremony and to pronounce you husband and wife. Many blessings to you both. xoxoxo
