The 21 Best Caribbean Islands to Visit in 2021

St John With almost two thirds of the island covered in national park, St John is one of the Caribbean’s ultimate nature retreats. But it’s the people, the community here that really draw you in — from floating taco bars to the funky, playful soul of Coral Bay. And while there are some lovely small hotels, the island’s villas have never been more popular.

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.

Thank you, thank you, thank you for helping make our wedding day (and honeymoon) exceed all expectations."

"Hi 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"

"Hi 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!!

"Anne Marie Selected To Wedding Wire Bride's Choice"

"Anne 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."
