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.Sent on 12/31/2019

Fabulous, stress-free wedding planning
Don't be afraid to look at a wedding outside of the United States, if you hire an experienced planner in the islands. Michael was fabulous from day one. Everything was taken care of for us. We arrived by cruise ship and ended up getting off the ship 20 minutes early, but Michael was already there waiting for us. He took us to the courthouse to pick up our license, then to the beach we had chosen. He already had our flowers with him and the photographer joined us at the beach. Everything was perfect and I believe he pays very close attention when you speak with him to get a feel for what type of couple you are and how formal he should be. He struck the perfect note for us between the seriousness of the ceremony and throwing a few jokes in. I'm so glad we chose Michael for our officiant.... we wouldn't change a thing.Sent on 05/23/2019

The Perfect Wedding at Megans Bay!
From the very first email Michael was very helpful in answering our questions. When you are planning a destination wedding online of course you may be a little nervous, not with Michael. He helped us plan and prepare us for everything. Michael answered all our questions in regards to preparing the documents for the marriage license, making all the arrangements for picking us up at the cruise port, and getting us in and out of Courthouse very quickly. Upon arriving at Megan's Bay the photographer Chad had everything set up on the beach for the ceremony, and our steel pan man provided great music for the ceremony. Our wedding was very small consisting of us and another couple who stood up with us. The ceremony that Michael perform was very well prepared and just made our wedding day complete. After the ceremony we had plenty of time to get all the photos that we wanted and had our champagne toast. Michael would have provided transportation back to the cruise ship however, we decided to spend the day at the beach. Megan's Bay has facilities to change your cloths which was very clean. Within just a short time after returning home we received our certified copy of our wedding license and then just a few days later we received our link to all of your wedding day photos which turned great! We would highly recommend Island Mike to perform your wedding. There is nothing Michael left our and he made our wedding day PERFECT!Sent on 03/17/2020
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.
Michael is the best wedding officiant on island. Whether you are looking for a traditional ceremony or a funny minister, Michael takes the time to get to know each of 'his' couples to ensure that the vows they take are personalized and memorable.
