    Our Wedding...

    Island Mike was absolutely wonderful. I got his number from a friend and right away I fell in love with his personality and his service. He was always willing to assist no matter what. At my wedding ceremony which was held at Magens Bay beach he called right before the wedding to make sure that I was ready and to me that was the sweetest thing. From the core of my heart we would like to say a big THANK YOU to you Island Mike for being such a great Officiant. You are truly amazing.

    Love Always,

    Mr. & Mrs. Pinney (Wedding Date June 28, 2020)

    Exceeded our expectations!!

    Look no further!! We are absolutely pleased and impressed with Island Mike and his team. The love for what they do is reflected in the quality of their services. We definitely recommend Mike to plan and officiate your destination/beach wedding. When we decided to elope to the USVI we had not expected that with his help and guidance our planning and wedding day would be so seamless and zero stress. It was a gorgeous beach ceremony last month (May 2021) and it was all we had imagined and more!! Cheers to Island Mike and his team!

    Perfect Day

    Fantastic! Mike's expertise made the entire wedding experience so enjoyable. Our small wedding, with only 11 guests was so beautiful, intimate and really special. We had our ceremony at Magens beach on St. Thomas and it was perfect for what we wanted. We had a ceremony, cake and a day at the beach after. We highly recommend Mike to take care of the planning and preparation. He promptly answers questions and guides you through the marriage license application. If you want something simple, easy, and beautiful this is the way to go. Five stars for sure.

What a pleasure to work with Michael! He clearly takes pride in his work, creating a meaningful experience for each couple. Officiating a destination wedding requires a different kind of expertise having to do with weather, remote location, etc. and Michael was able to keep us on schedule for the sunset ceremony. If you're looking to elope or have an intimate ceremony on the Virgin Islands, I highly recommend Michael to officiate.
