“I just emailed Island Mike and he handled everything, zero stress for me!”


“If you are looking to get married in the Virgin Islands Mike is your guy!”


“Michael was fabulous from day one. Everything was taken care of for us…I’m so glad we chose Michael…”


Think of me as your wedding wingman.

I’M ISLAND MIKE: Wedding Planner, Officiant, & Your Go-to Guy for Stress-free Planning and Fun Destination Weddings.

I’m here to help you plan your wedding and get you married quickly, easily and affordably.

After years of officiating weddings (observing behind the scenes) as a side hustle, I saw more and more exhausted, stressed out couples who definitely didn’t seem like they were on vacation: relaxed and having fun.

I said to myself, “Mike, that ain’t right.” So I took all my knowledge, put it in a bottle and let it drift out to sea… Just kidding, that would be crazy.

I kept the good parts that actually worked, distilled it, and replaced the parts that no one enjoyed with things that matter. Things like having fun at your wedding, having a stress free day, being able to choose your own details.

I also threw in things my couples didn’t know were options, like paying only for the services you want instead of a premium for things you don’t want included.

The result? A planning process that’s straight-forward and easy, without being like every other wedding package. And a wedding day that is personalized, where you make the decisions. But most importantly, couples who aren’t stressed leading up to their impending wedding, but instead are excited to celebrate!

Heavy right? I know, I’ve got chills too.
