About

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.

    Amazing!

    I used Island Style Weddings for my wedding in St. John in May and I could NOT be happier about how everything turned out! Mary is WONDERFUL! The first time I met with her I felt like I had known her for years! She was so easy to work with, handled everything for me and made it a lot less stressful since I was trying to plan everything all the way from Alabama. Mary’s attention to detail, experience, and natural talent for event planning is second to none! I am so very thankful to her for helping to make my wedding day the best day of my life!

    Best in the game!

    Mary and Brenda made our dream destination wedding a reality. St. John is a special place to us and there was no better place to get married. Everything leading up to the wedding was smooth not the mention the wedding day was a breeze. Our friends are still talking about the wedding! I can't recommend them enough! They also found us the perfect venue =)

    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!
