    We can speak highly enough! Our guests asked how many YEARS we had been friends!

    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

    Wonderful Officiant!

    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 officiants that I have seen, or compared with other brides. But she is so worth it, and you will not be disappointed!

    Reverend Joy Burke's reply:

    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
