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

Michael was quick with responses and offered expert recommendations for local vendors and helped us decide on our ceremony location (Limetree Beach) for our sunset elopement. He was very easy to talk to and customized our ceremony based on our vague requests. We were fortunate that he worked well with our photographer whom we had brought with us from New York. Our elopement went seamlessly and it was definitely in part of Michael's uncanny ability to make it seem as if we had all known one another. Throughout the ceremony and the beautiful sunset that followed, Michael never rushed us and made us feel very comfortable despite our short time together. While we were not watching, he took several candid photos of us which came as a wonderful surprise when we checked our e-mails later that evening. We could not have booked a better officiant!Sent on 11/03/2015

Most Amazing Wedding Day Ever!
We just had the most amazingly perfect wedding ever! Michael was the most remarkable person and officiator ever!!! We loved working with him and HIGHLY suggest using him for your ceremony. He was quick to respond to all my emails and very personable. We are so glad that we found him. If you are looking for an officiator, look no more! He will help you through the entire process and even give you some tips along the way to make your day the best ever. We were picked up promptly from our cruise and taken to the courthouse to complete our paperwork. Even the lady there said "Oh, you are gonna love Island Mike!” Then off to the beach. Michael met us with bouquet in hands and walked us down the beach to our spot. Michael was very professional yet still made us laugh and feel at ease. I know we just got married, however we hope to go back someday and renew vows on the same beach with Michael again. Long story short, choose Island Mike for your destination wedding! You won’t regret it!!!Sent on 10/02/2019
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.
