Quality of Service

When starting to plan a beach wedding all the way in St. John from Ohio, I knew I was going to need some help. I looked around online at the (few) wedding planners on the small island of St. John, and I was drawn to Island Style Wedding's website for their style and professionalism. I contacted Mary and she talked me through planning a St. John wedding for probably over an hour and we hadn't even hired her yet!
Mary really knows weddings and event planning , and it was so nice to have someone who was actually a St. John local on our team. Mary and her assistant Leah were quick to respond to emails, did all the transactions with the vendors for us, and really listened to what we wanted. They made the planning process fun by having me make a Pintrest board of inspiration and style.
The day of the wedding was pretty seamless! All we had to do was show up at the beach and they had everything there waiting for us. Mary did an excellent job officiating the ceremony and the scenery a dream. The reception was wonderful (we had about 15 guest total) too. We rented out part of a restaurant (Rhumb Lines) and it worked out great - it was actually fun to have the other diners around.
Overall, we could not have had a better experience and we're so glad we worked with ISW! I'm so sad it is over! We will definitely keep in touch with Mary and Leah and we hope to go back to St. John soon!

Island Style Weddings on St John, USVI destination weddings are ideal for those brides and grooms who want to make their wedding day truly unique.

St John, United States Virgin Islands, is well equipped to handle weddings for couples from anywhere around the world.  The least populated of the U.S. Virgin Islands, St John (5,000 year round residents) is unspoiled by McDonalds, no red lights- not even Starbucks has penetrated this little island gem in the Caribbean. It offers many possibilities for unique and stunningly beautiful wedding locales. In addition, entry to and from America’s Caribbean, the U.S. Virgin Islands, by U.S. citizens does not require a passport, (proof of citizenship i.e.- birth certificate or voter registration is require) making it easy for all to travel to your St. John Wedding.

Many couples are concerned about asking their guests to travel to another location for their wedding- However a destination wedding offers great value and many benefits in comparison to a traditional wedding.  A traditional wedding is usually hosted for one afternoon or evening.   Sometimes the bride and groom are so caught up in the whirlwind they don't have a moment to take it all in.   A destination wedding offers the guests and the wedding couple some time to unwind from their day to day life and more time to spend with each other.  They can celebrate their wedding in festive and relaxing setting.  In addition, your guests are offered an opportunity for a much deserved vacation, a family reunion as well as a wedding they will never forget.  Destination weddings create lasting memories not just for the couple but the guests as well.
