Our erfect wedding
What can we say except Michelle truly did make our dreams come true. Her personality is warm but edgy, which to us was a big plus when planning our wedding frtom so far away. She is fun and creative but no nonsense and up front which we really appreciated. Michelle handled last minute changes with ease and kept us calm and our day flowing even while dealing with a few high maintenance guests in our group. We had so much fun while planning and Michelle's quick thinking made evertyhing perfect. We can'tthank her enough.Sent on 04/30/2019

We hired Michelle for our wedding and then the pandemic hit. We had worked out such a wonderful unique plan with Michelle's help and we tried delaying things but ultimately called our destination wedding off to have something near home. Michelle was gracious, helpful and understanding with us as were all of the vendors she had recommended and booked for us, including a yacht for our ceremony. We asked Michelle for 1/2 of our non-refundable deposit back because she had done a lot of work, but we hated to lose everything. Michelle gave us our deposit back as did all of the other vendors she had us booked with. We are more than thankful for Michelle, her professionalism and for her keeping us in good spirits in spite of everything. We are disappointed that we didn't get to experience our wedding with Michelle because it was going to be amazing. Bless you Michelle. We really appreciate our experience with you, as strange as it was.......Sent on 11/08/2020

Truly the best ever!
We reached out to Michelle on a friends recommendation and wow are we glad we did. She called us back on a Sunday night and from there we became completely smitten with her and her ideas for our wedding. She is beyond creative, thinks fast on her feet and kept us in budget while still giving us everything we wanted. Things are not cheap on the island but Michelle has some of the best contacts. We just can’t say enough about the part she played in making our wedding a perfect day. Thank you Michelle!Sent on 11/08/2020

I can’t say enough great things about Michelle. I planned this in 5 weeks, and she was superb! She made it so simple and stress free, & executed my vision on a shoe string budget, with small details and surprises for us!Sent on 12/31/2019

Our wedding was all smiles!
Where to start. 3 days of events. Multiple locations, coordinated but unique styles each night. All of this was designed and brought together by Michelle and her staff, who were also so fabulous and kept everything smooth the entire time with Michelle overseeing every second of every event. But she doesn't just oversee. She was in the trenches, on ladders, had the cutest work boots on......sorry she is just that dedicated to her work and it shows! Our wedding and our time on island was amazing because of this woman. She stops at nothing to give you your perfect wedding. You would not regret booking Michelle. We loved working with her. She is straight forward but kept things fun and stress free. Thank you Michelle!!Sent on 09/30/2019
Weddings by Michelle Marquis's reply:It was such a joy to work with you and your entire group! We appreciate this wonderful review of our wedding weekend together. We do love what we do and are so happy you all had a great time here. And yes, my work boots are still going strong! X0

What can we say except if you don't hire Michelle, your wedding day will be just another day! Michelle got our day so perfect, from a long distance apart and we are still in awe of the whole time. Our guests thought we had designed it. But we didn't! I honestly didn't know what it was going to look like until I walked down the aisle! And it was just perfect in every way. Our whole day was special and our 90+ guests still say it's the best wedding they have ever been to. The raception was so beautiful and fun. The food was some of the best, most creative use of local items we had our whole time on island. The flowers, stunning. The DJ and entertainment were just so fun! Do yourself a favor and book Michelle!! She is worth it!Sent on 09/25/2018

Best wedding day ever
Michelle is a miracle worker and kept our day from going off the rails. Everything went perfectly. We started trying to plan on our own but it was a disaster. She pulled it all together in no time and it was perfection! Thank you for being there for us Michelle!Sent on 05/21/2019

Best Day Ever!
Michelle helped my best friend plan her wedding and it was seriously the best day. Our entire group has such wonderful memories of our time in St. Croix and it is all because Michelle helped us plan everything. Evey detail. And it went off perfectly. It was really just a fun, memorable time for us. We highly recommend Michelle for any event that you want to be unique and special. Thank you Michelle from the bottom of our hearts!Sent on 05/01/2019

Beautiful job on my son's wedding
Michelle handled multiple days of our sons very private wedding and everything was perfect. She designed aspects that we didn't think could be done, but she did it with style and grace. Her team was massive and knew what they were doing which made us feel relieved. This experience for our family was more than we imagined.Sent on 04/23/2019
Weddings by Michelle Marquis's reply:Thank you so much for this great review! It was an honor for us to be a part of your sons wedding festivities and getting to know all of you. Congratulations again!

I seriously can't say enough about how fabulous Michelle and team are. From pre-planning to the moment we arrived on the island to the day of the ceremony - everything was easy and wonderful. Michelle thinks of everything and takes care of it all, ensuring the best results. I am SO happy I chose Michelle for our special day!Sent on 08/18/2018

Mechelle · Married on 07/07/2018
I am the eloping bride who's mother is making demands. I guess it is not an elopement when mama makes involved. We initially planned a basic wedding. Us, an officiant, and witnesses but Mom insisted on more. So I reached out to Michelle. She was on it from the moment she messaged me. She has reasonable prices. I decided to keep it as basic as I planned. But Michelle was still kind enough to assist me with planning a special dinner on the beach for my fiance after the wedding. I would recommend her for your planning needs!Sent on 05/30/2018
Weddings by Michelle Marquis's reply:Thank you so much Mechelle! We want your day to be exactly as you envision and are happy to make that come true. X!
Kathryn · Married on 05/21/2018
This review for Michelle is overdue. She is truly amazing and very professional. She is responsive and our wedding was just what I imagined. Even though it was just my husband and I, Michelle did a wonderful job and it was truly a dream wedding for us. For some reason, after multiple attempts my pictures will just not download to this review, BUT i can tell you Michelle's very talented and put so much effort into making everything perfect for us. My theme was starfish and she included it in the details of our cabana dinner (which was at the Buccaneer), decorating the table with them and the backs of our chairs were giant starfish! Our ceremony site was just gorgeous, The Palms at Pelican Cove. Marie, our officiate was so kind and put together a beautiful ceremony. Nicole was our photographer and she did a fantastic job. They are both vendors of Michelle. The hair and make-up ladies were top notch as well. Michelle picked out the most beautiful flowers for my bouquet and those flowers were also in my hair through out my side sweep hair style. We are SO happy we picked St. Croix and Michelle to coordinate our wedding. It was an intimate ceremony and a night to remember forever. Thank you so much Michelle for everything and we hope to see you again in St. Croix !!Sent on 10/01/2018

Matt · Married on 04/22/2018
Michelle is amazing! St Croix is a beautiful destination, it would be impossible to organize such an important day from thousands of miles away. We were lucky to have found Michelle, she is hands down the best wedding planner on the island, no doubt amongst all the islands. Michelle seems to know everyone on the and every geographical inch of the island. We had planned the ceremony location a year in advance, two weeks before our arrival there were some structural issues with the ancient stone structures in the original location prohibiting our plans. Michelle called us to break the bad news but had an excellent alternative plan. By that time we had worked with her enough to be confident in her solution, we told her we trusted her judgement. Our day turned out perfect, the ceremony was in a location that couldn’t have been bested by any other on the island. The rest of the evening was perfect, photographer she helped choose was amazing, reception dinner was incredible, music was perfect. Our wedding guests had an unforgettable evening. We highly recommend Weddings by Michelle Marquis!! Thank you again Michelle!!!Sent on 05/23/2018
Weddings by Michelle Marquis's reply:Thanks so much Jess and Matt! You two had the island vibe even before your arrival which helps when you have to “go with the flow” here. We appreciate your kind words and loved spending time with all of you. Best to you both!

Jordan · Married on 03/10/2018
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!Sent on 03/15/2018
Weddings by Michelle Marquis's reply: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 MichelleSent on 02/27/2018
Sheila · Married on 12/01/2017
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!Sent on 01/17/2018

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!Sent on 11/22/2017
Weddings by Michelle Marquis's reply: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!
