Completely Customizable Wedding Packages for Modern, Stylish Couples

The wedding of your dreams with the ease of a package? It’s already mixed to perfection and waiting for you at the bar. My wedding packages are perfect straight out of the bottle or can be garnished any way you like. No chaser needed.


The Recipe for a Perfect St. John Wedding

Wedding ceremony at Hawksnest Beach, St. John

Years ago, I realized traditional wedding packages just didn’t make sense for destination weddings. All too often, choices are limited or bloated with extras (like, what elopement needs 40 chairs?). So I  scrapped that model and built one that serves our clients better.

My packages start with the basics that you need to get married: an officiant to perform the wedding ceremony and advice to help you put together the little details. From there, my team work with you every step of the way to build your perfect wedding with additional a la carte services. The best part? All you have to do is show up!



Pick a package.

The principal ingredient for this cocktail is the base package. If you like it straight out of the bottle, then pour and drink up. But…if you prefer a little flavor…


Customize it.

Add ingredients a la carte to your shaker to plan a wedding that’s right for you. No fillers or preservatives here.


Show up.

Yep, it’s that easy. We’ll do the shaking and stirring and be here waiting for you with everything ready to go.

Details & Customizations

Now it’s time to decide on the details for your day, like when and where, and how to get there. I’ll help you find the perfect location (beach or wedding venue), arrange transportation, and even walk you through the process of making it legal.

Then we’ll customize the other details and vendor services to mix up a perfect wedding.



Photography & Videography

Photography is included in some of my packages. You might want to bring your own, choose another or add videography services.


Florals & Decor Rentals

Some of my packages include florals and an arch. Tropical bouquet doesn’t suit you? Choose your colors and style of flowers and add on additional bouquets, decor arrangements as well as chairs, arches, etc.

"Mike is the most easy-going person you will find to run your wedding. And truly, he runs the show. I am SO GLAD we found him.

Our day was perfect (yep, the P word) and I wouldn't change a thing. Just trust Mike and sit back and relax. He made everything easy."

Ana + Sonny

"Mike made everything so easy (almost too easy). We were nervous planning a wedding in a place we had never been, but he made it all so enjoyable. 

We sent him some inspiration pictures and he took it from there. His guides walked us through the every step for planning. Everything was wonderful."

Kalee + Jason

"Mike took care of all the details so that when we arrived from Iowa, all we had to do was show up and everything was ready to go!

Top notch! Mike was such a great guy to work with! Our wedding was everything we imagined it would be. Thanks again Mike!"
