Getting married in the United States Virgin Islands
A 2019 US News and World Report – “Why Go To U.S. Virgin Islands “
The U.S. Virgin Islands are “America’s Caribbean Paradise” — the place to see moko jumbies dance at a Carnival parade, hear the lilting patois of a Creole dialect or smell the spices in a saltfish pate (all without losing cell phone reception). You can visit either St. Thomas, St. John or St. Croix, or better yet, spend a little time on all three islands. That way you’ll get plenty of pampering, undisturbed nature and colonial history jammed into one vacation. And bonus: you can pay for everything with U.S. dollars.
Each island offers something different. Called “Rock City” for its hilly, craggy horizon, St. Thomas is known for luxury — from the mega-yachts moored in the harbor to the high-end storefronts along Main Street. Located a short ferry-ride east, St. John appeals to honeymooners and nature lovers, with more than 7,000 acres of dedicated parkland plus surrounding pristine beaches. Way down south in the Caribbean Sea, less-visited St. Croix has sugar cane plantations and rum distilleries that offer a glimpse into both the past and the present of the Virgin Islands.

|It's so easy to get married in the USVI - no blood test, no waiting period, and it is the United States so it is legal. You can fill out the application online, print it out, and mail it to the marriage license office on St Thomas. The marriage license office is 15 minutes from the St Thomas airport so if time allows, you can pick up your license when you fly in, before you ferry to St John. After your wedding, Anne Marie will file the paperwork with the Superior Court and mail you your official copy. marriage license application|

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."
you for your kindness, your advice, your patience, and your good nature.
You were fantastic to work with."
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."
