Hiring Michelle was the best thing I could have done! She was so amazing!!! Personally, I was going to try to do it all myself to save some money…but ended up finding Michelle and let me tell you, hiring her is worth EVERY PENNY! She really takes the time to get to know you and does a phenomenal job at pulling everything together to make sure the special day is everything you hoped for and more! Knowing that I had Michelle really helped calm me down because I knew that in her hands, I had nothing to be concerned about. One of the biggest frustrations about planning a wedding on an island, is trying to get ahold of vendors to get your orders placed…if I couldn’t get ahold of the vendor, Michelle would go above and beyond and drive to their shop to get it sorted out on my behalf. Part of her package is unlimited emailing correspondence with her which is so incredibly helpful! She was always quick to respond and gave great insight on the topic. She has so many connections on the island, great ideas and suggestions…I could go on and on! Working with Michelle has been an amazing experience and I highly recommend anyone that is having a wedding in St. Croix to contact her!
Thanks so much Jordan! It was our pleasure and we are so happy for you and Jeremy. We thoroughly enjoyed getting to know you all. You are surrounded by an amazing bunch! Best wishes! X
Michelle planned my daughters wedding and it was a dream come true for all of us! She handled everything and even in the midst of chaos, kept her cool, thought fast and made us laugh in the face of it all. We plan on visiting St. Croix again because of the wonderful memories we have from there. The island and Michelle hold a place in our hearts. Thanks Michelle
Our wedding was supposed to be on St. Thomas but was cancelled. We contacted Michelle and she took things over and ran with it. Michelle has a unique vibe about her and it translated to our wedding, which was exactly what we wanted. She is very responsive and fun to work with. Our wedding was really the best day. Our friends and family could not believe she only had a couple months to pull it all together. We thank you Michelle for giving us these memories and saving our wedding day!
Fantastic experience with Michelle from her picking us up and taking us to the court house for the legalities thru lining up hair, makeup, officiant, ceremony site on the beach, sunset sail, and dinner following! Beautifully done, made our day truly stress free and perfect!
Thank you for your kind words Amy! It was our honor to be a part of your wedding. Thanks for trusting us to be there for you all, even after the 2 hurricanes we've gone through on the island. Best wishes to you and Scott!
Michelle planned the most amazing destination wedding for us! She pointed us in the right direction for the perfect estate and even got us a discount. That in itself took away a lot of stress. From there, we gave her our general ideas and let her design most everything for us. We don't know how, but she came up with a day that was everything we wanted and more!!! Everyone was amazed that basically, we didn't even know what the wedding was going to look like. But that's how much trust we had in Michelle. She didn't let us down!! Our family and friends said it's the best wedding they have ever been to! Please. If you want the most perfect, memorable destination wedding, go with Michelle and let her plan the most seamless, stress free, stunning day for you. You won't regret it. Some may say she's expensive, but this is your wedding day!! She's worth every penny and more. Thanks Michelle!
I recently hired Michelle to help me with an engagement party and with just days before it turned in to a wedding. Michelle never skipped a beat. Her transition from party to wedding was seamless. She arrived and transformed the location into a beautiful venue, and adapted her decor perfectly for the spontaneity of the evening. Countless guests described the whole evening as magical, I agree, it was. She worked well with the caterer and his team complimenting her efforts to his. Her professionalism was remarkable, she truly went over and above our expectations and was very pleasant to work with. The evening went off with only a single hitch: the bride and groom Thank you Michelle for helping make it the perfect surprise for everyone!
Thanks so much Sarah!! Your vision was so fun and thoughtful. We loved bringing it together with you. It truly was a magical evening.
Michelle is the best!! She kept the whole experience fun, very memorable and creative. She handled everything for us on the fly. We only gave her about a month to plan and she came through for us. We were worried about things, as a same sex group, but St. Croix is open and Michelle made us feel at home with the people she had around us for our wedding. Our guests still get teary eyed about the whole thing! And so do we. Choose Michelle for your wedding day. Believe me you won't regret it.
They are absolutely amazing!!!!! Our wedding was above and beyond any of my expectations! She catered to my every need and want, from a custom walkway, amazing food, photo booth, jumbies dancers, and fireworks!!! It was absolutely STRESS-FREE!!! She's worth every penny!! Thank you again Weddings by Michelle Marquis for everything!
Yenitza and Shackeel it was such a joy to be a part of your wedding!! We loved every minute. The two of you were so focused on your love of each other and your families and friends and we feel so blessed that you had us be there for you. Thank you so much for your kind words. You were a sweetheart to plan with!
We actually found Michelle by seeing another wedding that she was in the process of putting together. Everything looked so beautiful that we knew we had to ask her to be our wedding planner! We got married at the Renaissance at Carambola beach in St. Croix. While it can be challenging to plan a wedding long-distance, Michelle made the whole process easy and fun. She was absolutely incredible on the day of our wedding and I did not have one worry on my wedding day about setting up/making sure everything was how I wanted it to be. Michelle had everything covered and exceeded my expectations for the ceremony and reception space. She was also very flexible in rolling with whatever happened and making sure I had nothing to worry about. In short, Michelle is amazing and will give you the wedding day and experience you have always dreamed of!
Thanks so much Sunita! You and Michael were amazing to plan with. We thoroughly enjoyed getting to know you all! Best wishes!
It was such a relief the day I hired Michelle to help me plan my daughter's wedding! My daughter lives thousands of miles away and wanted to come home to St. Croix for her wedding. I could not have done it without Michelle! She is a wealth of information and was lovely to work with. The wedding was perfect!
Sue, thank you so much for having us be a part of Britta and John's wedding. It was such a wonderful day! Best wishes to all. Michelle and the staff of Weddings by Michelle Marquis
When we started to consider a destination wedding we were unsure of what to expect. After looking through the options in St. Croix and reaching out to several, we instantly knew that Michelle was the one we wanted to go with. She was so responsive, funny, creative and knowleadgable that we had no stress and our entire trip flowed seamlessly. She handled 3 days of events for us including a welcome dinner for 70, a wedding for 100+ and a day after excursion for 40. Every event went perfectly and we could not be more happy and impressed with the level of professionalism and care that went into all of them. Michelle was sort of left to her own devices by us as to the details because we were pretty open minded and just wanted to enjoy. We gave her our criteria for the perfect day and she incorporated those elements and brought in so much more to make everything perfect and memorable for not only us, but our family and friends as well. We can't say enough to express our gratitude towards Michelle for these memories.
What an awesome experience!!! We loved Michelle!!!
Thank you Janet! We loved every minute of it. Michelle and the staff of WBMM
Where do I even start? Trying to choose a wedding planner, especially for a destination wedding can be SO difficult. I had contacted 5 planners before Michelle and immediately knew she was the one. From our first conversation, Michelle was so informative and helpful. She gave me immediate answers to my questions, ideas and suggestions when I was uncertain and coordinated all of the vendors. Planning for me was honestly stress free! I gave her my thoughts on what my vision was for my wedding and she made it happen, plus more. When it came to set up, the actual ceremony/reception and tear down, her crew worked so efficiently and made everyone feel so welcome. The day was perfect and it would not have been if it wasn't for Michelle. Thank you, thank you, thank you for your endless time and for making our wedding so wonderful. Your hard work and dedication did not go unnoticed.
Rachael, thank you so much for your kind words. It was wonderful meeting you all. We thoroughly enjoyed every minute we had with everyone. We hope to see you down here again soon!! Congratulations to you and Mark. XO!!
Michelle is AWESOME! Loved working with her! She answered all of my late night texts and questions no matter what time it was!
Thanks Murphy! You were such a joy. I'm so happy for you all! Michelle and the staff of WBMM
Michelle is amazing. I left the details to her, and we couldn't have been happier. We loved each and every vendor she recommended to us. Michelle and team are great at what they do! Michelle was always quick to respond to emails, and made certain our special day was completely stress free.
Thanks so much Kelli! We could not be happier for you and Matt. A wonderful day with wonderful people. XO! Michelle
I actually found Michelle here on WeddingWire and was so happy I did! From the very beginning when we just began to ask her questions she was so responsive and honestly provided more information than would be expected of someone you haven't even hired yet. Michelle made the entire process so easy! We used her for both our rehearsal/welcome dinner as well as the wedding and reception and everything was incredible. The guests couldn't stop talking about what an amazing experience as well as how wonderful the food and decor were! We were just so happy to have her be a part of everything and provide us with a worry-free wedding! Thank you so much Michelle for everything!
We thank you, Kristin, for having us be a part of such a momentous time! We thoroughly enjoyed the whole planning process and getting to know you, Adam, your families and friends. We wish you all the best! Michelle and the staff of Weddings by Michelle Marquis
Michelle was amazing, everything for the big day was perfect! I didn't have to worry about any of the tiny details for the wedding because she had everything under control. Thank you so much for everything you and your staff did, you made our day amazing. Michelle's response time was impeccable as well.
Alexandra you all were so fun to work with and we had a wonderful time with you! Thank you so much for choosing us to be a part of your wedding. Our best wishes to you both!! Michelle, Ann and SJ.
I adore Michelle. She is what made my wedding beautiful. She made it so much more than I could have imagined. Chris, my husband at first wasn't exactly thrilled at having outside help, but once he saw what she did for us, he said it was the best money ever spent, and he wishes we would have found her sooner. Every question I had she answered and was quick with response. She calmed my nerves when I needed it. I would recommend her to anyone wanting to get married in St. Croix, she has talent.
Thanks so much Tamara! We are so happy for you all. You and Chris were so fun, as were your guests, and we all really enjoyed our time with you. Best wishes and see you next time you are on island.
Let me preface this by saying unfortunately we ended up not using Michelle as a wedding planner - but only because we decided to have our wedding in our hometown of Cleveland, Ohio. But I cannot say enough about Michelle! The amount of legwork and brainstorming she did before we even signed a proposal was incredible. You can tell she loves - and is great at - what she does! She is very detail oriented, responsive and personable. She listens to your concerns/ideas and counters with creative solutions. The input she gave us on accommodations in the area will be very helpful when we plan our honeymoon in USVI. We for sure owe this chick dinner! :) I would recommend her without hesitation for your wedding planning needs. Thank you, Michelle!
Thank you so much Nicole. It was a pleasure getting to know you and I look forward to seeing you as newlyweds on your honeymoon! Michelle
We selected Michelle because of all of the positive reviews online. Michelle did not disappoint! From the first email to the last hug goodbye, Michelle was attentive, warm, helpful and all around amazing. She took every little detail that I ran past her and implemented them all into the MOST BEAUTIFUL WEDDING I could have ever dreamed up. We had the privilege of using an event location that she has never used before and let me just say WOW!
After the ceremony, Michelle arranged for my husband and I to have a private dinner on the beach! We were blown away by all of the work, creativity and just the eye for beauty she created for us. The relaxing beach fire, the beautiful dinner table and the BEST
FOOD I have ever had the privilege of tasting
When I say if you want to most Spectacular wedding EVER, you need to use Michelle.
She didn't just stop at the wedding, she gave us a list of places to see, places to dine while we were here and even called and made us reservations at Savants one evening. We cannot thank you enough Michelle for making our day so much more than we ever imagined!
Congratulations Amy and Kenny! It was truly an amazing time that we were fortunate enough to spend with the two of you. We wish you the best and see you when you get back here! Michelle, John and the entire staff of WBMM
When my wife started her search for a wedding planner in St. Croix, USVI, she was reluctant to turn our special day over to a wedding planner in a place we have never been. However, during her search, she found Weddings by Michelle and she ready EVERY review she could find. Once she read them all she told me that Michelle was the person for us. All I have to say is BOY she was RIGHT. Michelle and all of her staff were amazing. We are from Oklahoma and wanted to bring some of our country views to the islands for our wedding. We talked with Michelle via phone and email every step of the way and we were absolutely blown away by the beautiful wedding Michelle created for us. I have never met anyone so willing to listen to our desires and wants and be able to put them into play as Michelle did. She has an eye for details and beauty. We didn't have a specific venue that we preferred, so we left that one up to Michelle. WOW!! She created our beautiful ceremony at an old sugar mill that had never been used before overlooking the beautiful ocean. Once the ceremony was over, we were escorted to our private beach front dinner for two. We had a beautiful fire by the ocean and a table for two under a gorgeous canopy with food that was OUT OF THIS WORLD!!!! For anyone that is wanting a Virgin Island wedding and needs to know who to go to to plan their special day, call WEDDINGS BY MICHELLE!! You will never be disappointed.
Thanks so much Kenny!! We are all so pleased to hear this about your wedding. You aLL are not only clients to us, but we consider you friends as well now. Talk soon! Michelle and the staff of WBMM
When first deciding whether to have a destination wedding we were lucky enough to reach out to Michelle first. After contacting a few of the other planners listed, we knew she was definitely the one for us. She is unique herself (gorgeous tattoos!) which let us in on the fact that our wedding would be nothing less than unique and fabulous as well which was what we wanted. She does only custom work and may seem a bit pricey at first, but once you see what you are getting you realize it's worth every cent. It's your wedding day after all!!! Our family and friends still see our wedding photos and talk about what an exceptional time it was for all of us together. Thank you so much Michelle! You are truly an exceptional person and wedding planner!!
Thanks so much Liv!! It was truly a pleasure to be a part of such an amazing time in your lives. We wish you all the best and will see you when you return for your honeymoon! Michelle
We would not have the memories we have from our destination wedding stay in St. Croix if it wasn't for Michelle. I can't imagine anyone not choosing her to make their wedding day seamless, stress free and so personalized and unique! I think she reads minds. She got to know us and brought everyone and everything together in a way we could not have even dreamed of. She arranged excursions for deeply discounted rates, had access to things that no one else utilizes and was professional but fun and charming along the way which set us at ease. Please do yourself a favor and look no further!!
Thank you so much Ethan! It was an honor to be a part of your wedding day. We look forward to seeing you on your anniversary trip back to our beautiful island home. Michelle
** To the reader: you have only yourself to blame if you do not hire Michelle as your planner.**
My wife and I could not have asked for a better day. This was due to Michelle. We planned our wedding, with Michelle, from the states. We did this in just a couple of the weeks. Michelle is professional, courteous, friendly beyond what you would imagine. She kept up with my meticulousness, and probably one of the most important aspects is that she is also very reliable. Michelle really came through and did it all for us. The flowers, the officiant, photographer, setup on the beach, the music (her husband John played.. and then lent me his guitar for the remainder of our trip...you won't find that type of wonderful kindness and selflessness except here, with Michelle!). Our flowers were perfect, the cake, exactly what we had hoped and asked for. Our family had contacted Michelle and asked her to do a few things for us as a gift. Michelle went way out of her way to make those things happen. She went to the courthouse for us before we arrived, she met us at the airport so she could guide us to our destination. When Michelle found out we were having a problem with our rental car at the airport...she offered to lend us one of her cars.
After the wedding, we met Michelle and John for drinks and they are as wonderful a couple as you will find here on the island. I cannot say enough great things about Michelle and her work as a planner, and her kindness as a person. . Bravo Michelle! Its not often I'm completely wowed...but you managed it. Karen and I thank you, from the bottom of our hearts, for making our day the best day it could possibly be!
Thank you so much Brian and Karen and congratulations! We cannot express how wonderful it was getting to know you both and being a part of your wedding day. We are blown away by your kind words and wish you all of the happiness in the world. See you next time you are on island!
My sister chose to work with Michelle Marquis for her destination wedding at the end of October. I have officiated over 200 weddings in Maryland and Virginia, and I was thrilled to be asked to perform my sister's wedding, as well. Having experience with many wedding planners and "day-of" activities through my own wedding work, I can say, without a doubt, that Michelle is a consummate professional. The weather didn't cooperate on the wedding day - and Michelle didn't just call my sister with a back-up plan; she showed up at the door with a schematic of how we could make the whole thing work on the beach, under a tent. Not only is she organized and thorough, but Michelle pours herself into what she does. Knowing my sister was working with a budget, Michelle made recommendations and presented options that were affordable and a "fit" for what my sister wanted the wedding to be. Michelle is approachable, generous with her time and her energy, and very personable. If you are looking for a planner to organize your event in St. Croix, please look no further. Michelle Marquis is it.
Thank you Amanda! It was such a pleasure to work with you. We all had such an amazing time with your friends and family.
