In a fast paced world where personalized service and commitment is rapidly being lost, Island Style Weddings stands firm on providing quality, not quantity to our couples. Since 2002, we have been designing Caribbean celebrations with elegance and style. We want to be your guide, friend and professional to ensure your day is perfect.
Island Style Weddings has chosen value over volume, resisting the lure of expansion and keeping the personal touch. You can rest assured that your wedding will be our primary focus and the two of you are the guests of honor.
Because we have chosen to stay small and personalized, Mary Castle Bartolucci guarantees that your wedding and events leading up to it will be coordinated with you and your vision in mind. Being located in the US Virgin islands, our location already provides the magical atmosphere that many other locations must manufacture.
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. Destination weddings are perfect for couples who don’t want the stress and additional expense of the large number of guests and formalities that are often expected in traditional weddings. A wedding in the United States Virgin Islands in the Caribbean offers many options. Your island wedding could a completely private and romantic ceremony for just the two of you and a honeymoon to boot! It could be a close and personal event to be attended by only your closest friends and family. Or if the two of you are dreaming of a multi day island party - what better place than a fabulous private villa( max 50 guests) or one of the great resorts. In the USVI, there are many exceptional locations and unspoiled beaches.
whether you choose St John, St Thomas or St Croix, 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 (4,000 year round residents) is unspoiled by McDonalds, no red lights- not even Starbucks has penetrated this little island gem in the Caribbean. St Thomas offers duty free shopping and 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 Caribbean Wedding. At Island Style Weddings, we offer years of expertise in planning all types of Caribbean destination weddings.
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.
The tropical paradise that is the USVI has a special way of unravelling tension. However, planning a wedding is always stressful, especially if you live hundreds, or even thousands of miles from the wedding locale. At Island Style Weddings, we are skilled at helping couples plan their special day, even from remote distances. No matter what degree of guidance you seek, we can help. Have you always envisioned being married at sunset, barefoot on the beach? If so, we can make that dream a reality. Caribbean destination weddings are a truly spectacular experience for everyone involved. If you are interested in looking into a wedding celebration on a beautiful island in the US Virgin Islands, contact Mary Castle Bartolucci by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or call (340) 774-1484 to begin planning the Island Style Wedding of your dreams.

Mary and Brenda planned our St Thomas wedding at Villa Serenita, and we cannot recommend them enough. They picked up our wedding 2 months out after we parted ways with another planner on Island, and immediately ran with it. They were responsive, creative, professional, and patient with my indecisiveness. They took my "vision board" and curated an absolutely perfect day that was beyond our wildest dreams. Island Style is truly the best of the best, and we could never thank them enough!Sent on 08/29/2018

Island style weddings to the rescue!!!! Mary and Brenda absolutely saved our destination wedding. We had hired another planner on St. Thomas and for the first few months she was great but she basically stopped answering emails and phone calls. For 6 weeks this other planner fell off the face of the earth. With about 2 months to go before our wedding I called Island Style in a panic and explained our situation. THANKFULLY she was available. Mary stepped right in like she was our planner from day 1. She worked with my finance and helped us pull off the wedding of our dreams at Villa Serenita on Cabrita Point. It took about 2 days to get everything set up. Mary, Brenda and their staff were amazing during the process as we were staying in the house that the event was being held at. The wedding was on Saturday and it could not have gone smoother. Our event was a total hit and it truly was the wedding of our dreams. Mary was even able to save us some money because she already has beautiful tables and decorations to use. We are true believers in that everything happens for a reason. If the other coordinator didn't flake out we firmly believe that our wedding wouldn't have been as good as it was. Mary and Brenda are amazing and we cannot thank them enough!!!!!!Sent on 08/29/2018

Unbelievably great experience with Island Style!
We had our wedding in St. John in June 2018 and both my wife and I and our guests had such a wonderful time! We loved working with Mary and her team at Island Style Weddings throughout the entire process (and still love keeping in contact with her!). She helped in the logistics of planning the events leading up to the wedding, including a welcome night at Beach Bar (which she was able to get opened for us for a night while they were closed during their renovations), a boat day cruise to the BVIs, a beach day with the guests, rehearsal dinner, wedding, and brunch the morning after. We asked a lot of Mary and Brenda (and team) to put on an amazing wedding week for our 60 guests, and Island Style Weddings delivered, and then some!Sent on 06/10/2019
Our planning was interrupted by the hurricanes that hit STJ in 2017, and Mary communicated with us as much as possible when her world was turned upside down. It speaks to her commitment to her clients and desire to make sure that the focus is on your wedding. We can never repay her for her commitment to us during that difficult time for her and her team.
Island Style Weddings is worth it if you are looking at putting in a wedding, between the support that is provided in planning and execution of the wedding events, to Mary’s extensive design portfolio and her execution on the vision above what our expectations (which were already high!) could ever imagine! Her design sense and execution made for an unbelievable wedding backdrop, and was worth every dollar!
My wife and I highly recommend Mary for your wedding or other event in St John or St Thomas. Her wealth of contacts and experience in putting on top notch events is second to none. Not only do we look back on our wedding week with such positive thoughts, all of our 60 guests still talk about the wedding and the great time they had all week in STJ. We couldn’t have done it without Mary and her insightful guidance to pulling off our dream wedding!
Mary and team help create some of the most beautiful events in the USVI! We love working with them to bring each client's individual vision to life.
Mary and her team based in St John, Virgin Islands plan stunning weddings. Planning and delivering is what they do best. I have had the opportunity to collaborate with Island Style Weddings in the past. They are a pleasure to work with and are professional from start to finish.
Mary Bartolucci and the team at Island Style Weddings is professional and knowledgeable. THey provide the ultimate experience in destination wedding planning.
