Getting married in the United States Virgin Islands
Lovingly known as "St John's Barefoot Minister," Anne Marie has lived in St. John, US Virgin Island for 30 years and is a most knowledgeable and fun resource. "Couples come to the USVI for their wedding because it is easy, romantic. and fun" says this most popular wedding coordinator.
Anne Marie's hope is to keep your wedding stress-free, meaningful, and reasonably priced. There is a reason everyone says, "SHE'S THE BEST!"
"Anne Marie was amazing. She was so nice on the phone and helpful in providing planning information. We eloped and she made it such a beautiful, spiritual experience. We both cried and I thank her for providing that moment to us. Thank you Anne Marie for our experience at Trunk Bay!"
"Anne Marie was absolutely wonderful! It would not be an understatement to say that she was the driving force behind us having an absolutely wonderful time in paradise. We didn't regret a single thing except that we had to leave.
Anne helped us not only plan our wedding (everything from photographers to hair to flowers), but also where to stay (a villa as opposed to a resort we considered). She even let us know about a great place for our wedding dinner and a place for a couples massage.
Knowing that she's lived on the island for thirty years really set my mind at ease as I planned a trip to an island no one I knew had ever been to, and my honeymoon/wedding at that!
She truly helped ensure everything went smoothly and eased any and all anxiety. The wedding was about our love and nothing but.
A special thank you to Anne for being a kind, listening ear with advice as I had a Bridezilla moment the day before due to a miscommunication with a vendor.
you, thank you, thank you for helping make our wedding day (and honeymoon)
exceed all expectations."

Ann Marie, Bob and I just want to thank you for the lovely service you
provided in the renewing of our vows. It was very meaning full, yet
simple, and I think our children and grandchildren felt its warmth as
much as we did. It all was exactly what we had hoped for. We feel very
fortunate to have been able to celebrate our 50th wedding anniversary
with our children and grandchildren at Villa St. John on beautiful St.
John Island. Thank you so much"
you for your beautiful wedding ceremony for us on Trunk Bay.
Ann Marie, I've been meaning to contact you since the wedding on Hawksnest
beach, on June 3 at 9am. I really just want to thank you so so much
for making both Neil and I have such a wonderful memory. The ceremony
you gave was absolutely perfect, I couldn't have asked for anything
better. You made us feel comfortable and relaxed, and we felt as if
we'd known you forever. It was romantic and beautiful and we appreciate
you and your service and your thoughtful manner. You gave us a memory
for a lifetime and we haven't stopped raving about how amazing our elopement
was. Thank you so very much, from the bottom of our hearts!!
Marie is a great resource in St. John when you are planning a destination
wedding. She knows most of the local vendors and is very easy to contact
when you have questions regarding the ceremony or anything else (transportation,
restaurants, etc). She coordinated with my florist and photographer
so that everything went smooth and as planned. Would definitely recommend
Anne Marie as she is a flexible and laid back officiant who will make
your ceremony go exactly how you want it to."
