Erica & Angela are the BEST. They made my wedding planning stress free and handled every little detail. They were able to answer all of my questions quickly and were so helpful with suggestions and recommendations -- from the flowers (which I absolutely LOVED), to our vows, to the music & photography, to the restaurant we chose to eat lunch at following the ceremony. They coordinated and organized everything so quickly and efficiently. Angela & Erica also handled every little problem that came up including a last minute location change of my cruise ship and the brief rain showers prior to the ceremony - all while assuring me that everything would be okay. (The rain passed quickly and we had the most beautiful wedding.) I am so grateful to these two amazing ladies for helping me plan such a perfect day.Sent on 03/17/2015

If we could, we would rate Weddings the Island Way much higher, but we could only give them a 5/5. We gave our travel agent a list of visions/wants/needs and she shared them all with Erica. We never actually came into communication with Erica until meeting her on the cruise port in St. Thomas an hour before our wedding. However, the minute we saw each, we greeted each other with great big hugs and kisses! It was like she was a cousin and/or friend and we have known each other forever. She drove us to the courthouse, while our guests went to Lindquist Beach via transportation Erica arranged for our guests. It was a HOT St. Thomas July day and refreshing water bottles were provided to everyone on the way to the wedding. Once we set foot onto the beach we got teary-eyed. It was EVERYTHING we envisioned; from the colors, to the location, décor; minister, etc. Erica knew us without knowing us; she was delightful to work with the day of the wedding and everyone she hired for us (steel pan player, photographer, minister, cake baker, caterer, bus drivers) worked with us and were all extremely pleasant. Our wedding was literally like something you only see in professional photos on the internet; in our eyes, it was perfect in every sense! We did had a hiccup with our plans; originally we were suppose to get married at Magen's Bay. We were very disappointed when we found out it wasn't going to be possible but once Erica explained to us why, she quickly had a back-up plan! She went to Lindquist Beach, took pictures from her phone to show us what Lindquist Beach looked like. It was comparable to Magen's Bay and end of the day, we became Mr. & Mrs. in St. Thomas, where we wanted our wedding to happen.Sent on 08/13/2018
We felt like our wedding was the most beautiful beach wedding ever and we also felt as if we left that day with a new set of St. Thomas friends! Erica, Juliet, Rudy, and Angela, we are going to hit you up next time we are in St. Thomas!!! Erica, can't THANK YOU enough!

I cannot say enough great things about the process of putting together my big day and the woman who made it all happen! Erica was able to accommodate every request I dreamt up and had a lot of great ideas to bring to the table as well. She made my fairytale wedding come to life and we could not have asked for a better person to do so!
Erica makes you feel welcomed right off the bat. Almost like a family member or friend rather than a company. You will be the best hands and trust me, Weddings The Islands Way will make your dreams come true too.
Thank you again for everything! I still look back and can’t help but smile and at how perfect everything came out. My husband and I are so grateful.
