My husband and I feel very fortunate to have found Dr. Janine Burns to officiate at our June 2011 wedding on Long Island. My husband and I were interested in personalizing our wedding ceremony. Dr. Burns worked with us over several meetings (via Skype, as we live out of state) to develop a ceremony that was unique and very meaningful to us. Dr. Burns had a lot of great "technical" advice, too, for the ceremony and reception (e.g. ceremony length, how to actually exchange the rings, writing the program). Dr. Burns is friendly, thoughtful, and extremely professional. The day of the wedding, she put everyone in the wedding party at ease by making sure everyone knew where to go and what to do. We were really glad that we were able to meet with Dr. Burns several times before the ceremony -- this way, we got to know her, and she got to know us. We recommend Dr. Janine Burns very highly!

Dr. Burns was referred to me by my now mother-in-law'she raved of how good she was in another wedding she had attended. When we sat and met prior to the wedding she meet my son, who demanded green sand for the sand ceremony. She made my ceremony pleasurable and easily put my son at ease even as he asked for his green sand. She worked great with my children and well as give me wonderful advice in order to ensure we had a marriage full of love and growth. I have to say she was more than great and I am short of words to even begin to tell and explain how marvelous she is.

Our ceremony was beautiful and everyone could tell that myself and my husband each played a part in getting everything perfect. Reverend Janine, was so much help, and everyone of our guests thought that she had known my husband and I for years. We highly recommend Reverend Jeanine, she is such a big help before, during, and after the ceremony, as well as a wonderful person to officiant any wedding.

When you are going crazy with your "to do" list, calling this person, arranging things, flowers, photos, wedding favors, seating charts ( you know what I mean) , it is really nice to deal with someone who is a calming influence like Reverend Burns. She is well organized and professional so that already is a relief and one less thing to worry about. She aslo provides serivce beyond just officiating and getting all the details down. I was a very nervous bride and found many of her suggestions to be helpful, in terms of calming my psyche. She even helped me with the birdcage veil that I did not know how to put on. I highly recommend Reverend Burns.

Dr. Burns encouraged my husband and I to do a sand ceremony with our family following our vows when we told her that we were getting re-married and our eldest son would give me away during leave from the Navy, our second son would serve as Best Man, our daughter was appointed Maid-of-Honor; our future daughter-in-law was our Bridesmaid. Neither of us had had a wedding before and Dr. Burns was able to give us the exact amount of assistance we needed to take care of important details, while suggesting and then executing ways to make our marriage special. Dr. Burns was an integral part of making our wedding magical and meaningful. She is very good at what she loves to do!

Dr. Burns made our wedding absolutely perfect and it was exactly what we wanted. All of our guests are still complimenting that our ceremony was modern, unique and refreshing. We were very pleased with her guidance and ability to help us express what we wanted to share on our special day. At the suggestions of Dr. Burns we including our daughters in our wedding with the Sand Ceremony which was a very special and memorable part of how we united our new family that day. Dr. Burns professionalism and sincerity made us feel as if she was part of the family and put us at ease. We highly recommend her services.

We were referred to Dr. Burns by a friend after we had trouble with the church we were originally booked with. Dr. Burns was incredibly understanding and created the exact ceremony we both were hoping for. Our guests had wonderful things to say afterwards about how touching and personal the service was. We went from feeling hopeless and disappointed to relaxed and confident with our decision. I would recommend Dr. Burns to everyone!

Janine Burns presented our ceremony in a very beautiful manor, it seemed like she was a part of our wedding not an officiant. From the moment the bride arrived Janine handled everything. She made the whole family ceremony feel so comfortable and natural, the guests remarked over and over how beautiful Janine made the joining of our families. We are forever greatful and will long remember how very special she made our day!

So glad we chose Janine for an Officiant! She made everything effortless and stress-free on our wedding day. She took time out and got to know us, which made for a great ceremony that was fitting to our personalities.

My husband and I highly recommend Dr. Janine Burns as a wedding officiant. We got married July 2010. Dr. Burns helped us create a unique ceremony that friends and family still rave about! She is professional yet friendly enough to appear and feel like a personal friend. Dr. Burns is the best!

My husband and I got married July 16, 2010. First wedding for both of us. I was catholic, he was Jewish. Finding Dr. Burns; an interfaith chaplain was wonderful! She made our entire wedding process a breeze and I never once had a worry about how it would turn out to be. She was available to meet with whatever concern my husband and I had. She is upbeat, happy and such a ray of sunshine. She offered a rose ceremony, and since my husband did not want the unity candle, the rose ceremony was just as beautiful, if not better. My ceremony was beautiful and I will forever remember it because of the patience and dedication Dr. Burns had for our wedding. She is by far the best.

My husband and I decided to renew our vows last year, on our 5th anniversary. Dr. Janine Burns came highly recommended to us by the bed and breakfast where we were staying. We were extremely pleased with her, and loved the ceremony she performed and would recommend her to everyone!

Janine is awesome. She met with us a few times beforehand and it was so comfortable and relaxing to talk to her. She was very honest and helpful with her suggestions, a good listener, answered all of our questions and was flexible with any changes we wanted to make to the ceremony. She takes care of every detail of the wedding and even gave us advice on the reception and honeymoon.
We got compliments from all of our guests on how touching and heartfelt the ceremony was and we owe it all to Janine.

Dr Burns was amazing!! The ceremony was beautiful and we really couldnt have asked for any better. She really makes sure everything is perfect and really just knows how to do an amazing ceremony. Meetings with her are great and she is great at counseling you through everything. Honestly 5 out of 5 isnt even good enough, trust me if you hire Janine you will NOT be let down she is truly the best!
Tara · Married on 05/15/2010
Dr. Burns was very personable and made the ceremony process so easy. She was a joy to work with and was excellent when it came to responding back. We met a few times and communicated thru e-mail. She was accepting of changes whiched helped with an already stressful situation. I would highly recommend her.

My wife and I married just over a month ago at Coindre Hall in Huntington NY, and we feel like we were the luckiest wedding couple in the world to have found Janine Burns. Not only did we enjoyed the ceremony, but our guests did too: during the wedding and the days following the wedding we received many, many compliments on the ceremony from our guests. They loved the spirituality and honesty. My wife and I really enjoyed working with Janine. She really made it easy to create a wedding service that was true to who we are, and she has such great energy. Our only regret is that we can't do it all again!
Richard · Married on 08/30/2009
Janine was an amazing officiant. We were both married before and each have children from our previous marriages. We wanted a ceremony that both described how we felt about our commitment to each other, but more importantly about how the children could be included as part of the ceremony. She had several suggestions, but we went with the "hand ceremony" where we all joined hands and we all made a commitment to be together as a family. The wording for this part of the ceremony was so touching and beautiful, in addition to the beautiful outdoor beachy venue that we had, people talked about it for weeks after our wedding. Janine is awesome!!!

Dr. Burns contacted us after I signed up with wedding wire and we could not be happier. The ceremony was beautiful and professional and sentimental and romantic all at the same time. All the guests at the wedding mentioned the beautiful ceremony. We would highly recommend Dr. Burns for your wedding.

I wanted to take this opportunity to thank Dr. Janine H. Burns again for her part in making my Moms Celebration of Life Memorial Service as special as I hoped it would be.
Our family and close friends were very moved with the whole presentation and found comfort in her kind words.
Our thanks again,
