    Thank you for your kind words, Cassie. It was my delight! Note: I believe madness was an autocorrect, there was no madness at your lovely wedding!

  • Our ceremony was the absolute highlight of our wedding day. So many of our guests commented that it was the most beautiful and personal ceremony they had ever attended. All of this is thanks to Joy. She really took the time to get to know us as a couple, and crafted and delivered such meaningful words. She was professional, prompt, and truly cared about making everything perfect. We're so happy we chose to work with Joy, and will always be grateful to her for making the most important part of our wedding day so deeply special and memorable.

  • Joy was amazing! We weren't from the area but wanted a small wedding in Lake George. Joy went out of her way to accommodate us. The day of the wedding she did the most beautiful service anyone could ask for.

  • Choosing Joy for our elopement made our day so special. She welcomed us into her beautiful parlor and preformed one of the most meaningful ceremonies I have ever heard. Through the tears and laughter we became one. I can not thank Joy enough for making our day special; from helping my mother to surprise us with flowers and a photographer to giving us a ceremony to remember. If you are considering eloping in Saratoga, Reverend Joy Burke is your go to. A court house could not compare.

    Thanks for your lovely review, Liz. It was my absolute delight to welcome you and Mike to my front parlor for your elegant elopement. I was happy to help your mom surprise you with florals and photos at the last minute. Many blessings to you both for a lifetime of health, happiness and prosperity.

  • We can't say enough wonderful things about Joy and what a essential and special role she played in our Wedding. She was recommended to us with high praise and we quickly learned why. Her sensitivity, genuineness and humor informed everything she did and the result was a beautiful ceremony in the front room of her lovely home - Vince & Preetham

    What a glorious day it was, Vince and Preetham. Wishing you two all the best for a beautiful future together. Thanks for taking the time to post a review on Wedding Wire.

  • Reverend Joy was an absolute credit to her name. We had always wanted to get married in a small private ceremony, but we really wanted everything to be special. Reverend Joy made our dreams come true and had written the most wonderful, emotive words specifically for us. I would absolutely recommend her to anyone who is getting married and wants a touching ceremony.

    It was such an amazing day for you and Steven, and I am so honored you chose me to be a part of it. Many blessings to you both for a lifetime of health and happiness together.

  • Joy was wonderful!! We wanted a small ceremony with just our parents there. So Joy invited us into her home and it was a moment that was intimate and meaningful and one that we will cherish forever! Even the moments leading up to it she was checking in with us to see if we needed anything and was always able to give us great suggestions and support! Our pictures came our beautiful! We may have a bigger celebration in the future and plan on asking her to carry out the ceremony!

    It was so wonderful for me to be a part of your day. I loved getting to meet you and your parents and holding the lovely energy of your wedding ceremony. You have a glorious future before you, and I look forward to seeing you again.

    Thank you for your lovely review, Jennifer. Being able to share the day with you and Tracie and Sam was absolutely wonderful. Officiating the wedding ceremony of a friend and colleague is one of my favorite parts of this job, and you gave me that honor and privilege.

  • Although I am a christian woman, my husband to be was not as religious and wanted a more intimate service then a church service. Through various internet searches we came across many officiants. For some reason, Rev Joy Burke stood out and we gave her a call. After a few calls and emails, we knew she was the one to marry us and she officiated a lovely ceremony for us. We live in Philadelphia and wanted a Saratoga wedding; she directed us in the process for NY state and made great recommendations for beautiful venues. On our big day, all our guests were inspired by her insight on love, marriage , trust and the life long commitment we were making with each other. I would recommend Rev Joy over any officiant in the NY area and even if I was out of state, we would fly her in! She is just a genuine and caring person who's main goal is to make sure your wedding day and ceremony is one to remember. Thank you so much Rev Joy!

    Devan and Moussa, even though we only first began talking less than two weeks ago, we were able to work together to create a joyful, sacred and meaningful ceremony that would take the two of you to the wonderful place of becoming husband and wife. I am so glad our paths have crossed and will always remember your beautiful wedding. With much love, Joy
