Congratulations! When two hearts are bound  together in the bonds of matrimony, it is a compliment to God.   And marriage  brings that added benefits that make a family whole.  It brings stability, integrity, commitment, legal responsibilities, protection, and equality to those who choose to marry. 

 

White Knot

Margaret Marshal, Massachusetts Supreme Court Chief Justice, says that "marriage is a social institution of the highest importance."

 

And your ceremony should reflect who you are and what you believe.  And I will work with you to create a uniquely special wedding ceremony that reflects your feelings, beliefs, and lifestyle.

As a traveling minister, I will come to your wedding site.  A site can be a home, garden, park, banquet hall, country club, ballroom, hotel suite, restaurant, yacht, etc. 

 

Letting me know where, when, and how to get there; puts me at the right place at the right time.

Upon booking your wedding with me, you will receive a free wedding ceremony workbook with sample ceremonies, rituals, and beautiful readings.  In addition, you will receive a personalized draft ceremony, and a premarital questionnaire.  There is a $100 nonrefundable deposit required to secure my services for your wedding day.  This deposit is subtracted from the total cost.

 

Please Note:  All ceremonies require a valid marriage license or original marriage certificate (for previously married couples) that must be presented to me prior to my officiating the wedding ceremony. For marriage license procedures, please check with the marriage bureau of the circuit court in the jurisdiction in which you are planning to get married, or click the above link.

 

The above fees are based on my experience, writing and revising the ceremony, traveling to and from the wedding site, rehearsal attendance, wedding party direction and coordination, my time corresponding with you, filing the county marriage license, officiating the ceremony, advertising cost, website hosting, and (if applicable) a holiday wedding fee ($60 is added to the base cost).

The wedding ritual is full of creativity and power.   I have married many couples who chose to have two rituals in their ceremony.  Jumping the broom maybe one of them, while the others are the lighting of the unity candle, sand pouring, tasting the four elements, or breaking the glass.  

So be creative and bring rituals from your culture into your ceremony and combine them with other well known ones.   This way your ceremony will have that special flavor that you want to achieve.  

As a minister of Spiritual Science it will be my job to ensure that the rituals are perform properly.  So allow me the opportunity to guide you.

I am, Reverend Starlene Joyner Burns, a Washington DC wedding minister, DC officiant, DC  wedding celebrant, and marriage license agent.   Currently, I am an active minister at the National Spiritual Science Center (NSSC) in Washington, DC.  In addition, I am the founder and director of SJB Ministries LLC.

 

I studied four consecutive years (at NSSC) and as part of my program, I chose to become an ordained minister of Spiritual Science.  Prior to that I was ordained in the Christian faith.  With more than six years of experience, I am prepared for the responsibility of an interfaith - nondenominational wedding minister. 

 

In addition, I received further training in the administration of the holy sacraments from a well known minister.   I have more than 65 five star reviews and more than 525 satisfied couples.  Because of that, I have been awarded Premier Bride 2009 Featured Wedding Winner, The Bride's Choice Award (2009 and 2010) and Best of Weddings from The Knot (2011). 

 

Furthermore, I perform not only weddings; but also baby blessings, private baptisms, memorials, funerals (including pets), and other rites of passage.  Furthermore, I am compassionate, ethical, and professional.  As a DC wedding officiant, I will work hard with you to ensure that your wedding ceremony is memorable.

 

I am registered to perform weddings in Washington DC and Virginia.  As a licensed minister of a religious organization, I am authorized to perform weddings in Maryland.
