The Buccaneer is a special place--beautiful, peaceful and serene yet fun and exciting too. We are so happy we had our private wedding there! Laura, our wedding planner, made the day magical and stress free. A big thank you to all who played a role in our dream wedding. We highly recommend the Buccaneer for a destination wedding!Sent on 05/22/2019

We absolutely loved our wedding at the Buccaneer. The Buccaneer team (shout out to Erin) helped us plan a multi-event weekend for over 50 guests that was everything we hoped for and more. From the beachside rehearsal dinner to our beautiful (and super fun reception) everyone had an absolute blast.Sent on 09/12/2019
The Buccaneer also had so many great and fun options for music throughout the weekend- we had a steel drummer for our rehearsal named Kevin Williams and Gyasi sang at our cocktail hour - both were huge favorites. We had a DJ for the reception (KDM) and they really got the party going!
The food was absolutely delicious (appetizers especially got rave reviews) which isn’t really the norm for wedding food so we were really happy! The Buccaneer also did a beautiful job on the cake.
Our photographer Kelly Greer was incredible and really went above and beyond - her photos are gorgeous. Our videographer MJS visions has also been really great to work with.
The flowers (by Gloria from Antilles Lillies) were absolutely stunning. For hair we used the Color Bar (Samantha was awesome) and we used Makeup by Mia who did a really great job (she also did airbrush and fake lashes for those who wanted it).
We had our ceremony at the Catholic Church in downtown Christiansted which could have been complicated but the Buccaneer team worked with our day of coordinator Corinne Farinola (also recommend hiring Corinne if you’re planning an off resort ceremony) to ensure everything went smoothly. We even successfully got a boat to shuttle everyone back to the resort after the ceremony! (Caribbean Sea adventures)
I know it sounds everything is awesome in this review but it’s because we really did love all of the vendors we worked with and can’t recommend getting married at the Buccaneer highly enough. We can’t wait to go back for our anniversaries!
The Buccaneer is my favorite resort to work with on wedding days. Their wedding team is kind, caring, and on the ball! Many of our brides tell us how much they appreciate the attention they receive from the events staff before and during their wedding day. The team is more than accommodating with our photography schedules, making sure that the entire property is available to us for creating amazing photography for our couples. We're even allowed to sneak on the golf course for some really spectacular views and scenery. The Buccaneer's helpful staff will make sure all your wedding dreams come true!
