Your Wedding Wingman

Grab a cocktail umbrella! This is gonna be fun!

If the unholy alliance of Pinterest and Google is overwhelming you with options, and you just don’t know where to start, then take my hand darling. I’m here to tell you it doesn’t have to be this way.

Think of me as your wedding wingman. I’m on your team and will help you find the vendors, figure out the logistics, and make the best decisions for your day.

I work with couples, just like you, who want to relax and enjoy their wedding (or elopement, or vow renewal) and know that everything will be taken care of when the day comes. My team will guide you through the process so that your day (and all the time leading up to it) can be easy and stress-free – just like being on vacation.

You Might Be Wondering

01. Is it really this easy?

Yes. And that’s by design. Planning your island wedding doesn’t have to be difficult, tedious, or time-consuming. My team and I are ready to set our cocktails down and make some wedding magic happen.

02. Do you plan elopements, vow renewals, same-sex weddings?

HELL YES! Whether it’s just the two of you or you have all your favorite people with you, we’re happy to raise a glass with you. If you’re re-celebrating (i.e. renewing your vows) we’ll raise two glasses.

Two brides? Two grooms? Shouldn’t have to ask. It's going to be double the fun.

03. How do I file for a marriage license and do I need to?

Easy! Just follow these step-by-step- instructions on how to file for a US Virgin Islands Marriage License.

04. Do you plan receptions?

YES! While wedding packages are designed to go down smooth – no chaser required,  everybody’s gotta eat. We’re happy to help plan your reception as well.

05. What about decorations and rental items?
Check out Styled in the VI for wedding decor, arches, chairs, table decor, lighting and more!
06. How do I get started?

Yay! Drop your details in the contact form and I’ll send you everything you need to know to plan your wedding.

Wedding Planning Advice

We think planning a wedding should feel less like a research project and more like skipping the line at TSA – with margaritas, that are frozen, with limes.

Working with island Mike was an absolute breeze! He made everything so easy (almost too easy….. we weren’t sure he was real). We were nervous about planning a wedding in a place we had never been, but Mike made the experience so enjoyable. 

Amazing experience

10/10 would recommend Island Mike! We eloped on St. John in April 2023. Mike was incredibly responsive to all my questions leading up to the elopement. He helped us choose the right florist, photographer, and bakery for our day. 
Most of all, Mike is incredibly kind, funny, reliable and calm. Everything you want in someone who is marrying you! 

10/10 Island Mike is THE BEST!!

Michael is the best of the best on the island! His passion, knowledge and charisma made the process and experience so easy. 

Great experience. Highly recommended
