We made the right decision getting Rev. Starlene as our officiant. From the beginning, she was so kind and understanding especially on our wants. She took time to get to know us as a couple before sending us a draft of the ceremony. She also mailed us a copy of her workbook that contains all the information we need along with a guide on how to create personalized vows. My husband and I however decided to just go with one of her pre-made vows since it resonated with us. On the day itself, the ceremony started on time. She conducted the ceremony in such a heart-felt way that even the guests felt it. Most of them approached me during the reception to say that the officiant was so good. She also stayed even after the ceremony and interacted with our guests. I find this to be a nice gesture and also, she didn't make us feel rushed. The marriage license was mailed right away as well. Over-all, such a wonderful experience! I suggest you call her right away and you'll feel the warmness in her voice throughout the conversation.Sent on 02/26/2020

Made our Wedding Day Perfect!
Rev. Starlene Joyner Burns was considerate and assisted us in deciding the type of wedding that would work for us. She took time to ask pertinent questions that made our ceremony feel as though she knew us for years. That special touch made all the difference. She made all of us feel at ease even though we were from out of state and our guests were from Europe. Rev. Starlene handled the marriage license and literally everything went off without a hitch! (Well, we were now hitched, but wasn't that the goal !?!) Thank you for a perfect wedding!Sent on 04/27/2019

Awesome! Perfect for last minute change
Reverend Joyner is amazing! I reached out to reverend Joyner to perform a signature package for my fiancé and I. She was very responsive and was able to provide exactly what we needed.Sent on 10/27/2020
I have done a few weddings with Rev. Starlene Joyner Burns and she is extremely professional and so easy to work with. I would strongly recommend her services to all of my clients.
I have done countless weddings with Ms. Burns over the years. She is an absolute delight and easy to work with. I recommend her to everyone!
Had the opportunity to be the wedding entertainment for a commitment ceremony that Rev Burns was the officiant of. She organized the couple's entrance with their attendees and made the guests feel like family. She was absolutely great fun and personable. I look forward to working with her in future ceremonies.
