10/10 Island Mike is THE BEST!!

10/10 would recommend Island Mike! We eloped on St. John in April 2023. Mike was incredibly responsive to all my questions leading up to the elopement. He helped us choose the right florist, photographer, and bakery for our day. Not only that, he offered expert advice about which beach would be best for our morning ceremony (Hawksnest).

Most of all, Mike is incredibly kind, funny, reliable and calm. Everything you want in someone who is marrying you!
When we arrived at the beach for our ceremony, the gorgeous floral arch we ordered was already assembled, and Mike greeted us with hugs.

The ceremony was sweet, laidback, and memorable.

Our marriage certificate and all the paperwork was expertly handled by Mike, and he even sent me the extra copies of the marriage certificate that I requested.

Mike's attention to detail and positive, sunny demeanor is everything you are looking for in a wedding officiant on the islands.

We are so grateful to Mike for making our elopement on St. John everything we hoped for.

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.
