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

Excellent, stress free wedding!
Michael performed our wedding back in October and did a phenomenal job! We booked with him really far out and touched base with him via email periodically throughout the year leading up to the official day (on top of the emails he sends with tips and advice after booking with him). I didn’t have many questions leading up to the wedding but he was always really responsive. A couple of weeks prior to the wedding, I started to (slightly) worry that there might have been some human error: maybe our wedding license application hadn’t made it to the St. Thomas courthouse and what if Michael didn’t show up to marry us? Needless to say there was definitely no need to worry, the courthouse had received our application and everything was super easy when we went to pick up our license and of course, day of the wedding, Michael was right on time to take us to our location! Initially, I was thinking about getting married on Magens but after Michael’s suggestion settled on Lindquist and it definitely didn’t disappoint; it was well worth the site fee! The ceremony itself couldn’t have gone better, it was absolutely the perfect wedding and I wouldn’t change one thing about it! Long story short, hiring Michael to officiate our wedding made the semantics of planning a destination wedding a breeze and he was the perfect choice of officiant.Sent on 11/10/2019
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.
