Since becoming ordained and performing weddings, from the Canadian border to here in the Virgin Islands, I’ve determined that, the ceremony and its content truly can set the tone for the day, the reception, the honeymoon and possibly the marriage. It’s always my goal to plan destination weddings that make everyone comfortable and have fun.

Now after more than 30 years of  doing business in the Virgin Islands we have decided to retire and have created this new about us page.

Old habits die hard and I loved working with new bridal couples. Could not see myself just fading out into the sunset.

So with encouragement from friends, vendors and previous couples, I have decide to create a new venture.

A website that offers advice, local vendors and online vendors that can help in creating a spectacular wedding day.

We have partnered with Vendors via the Affiliated linking for websites.

What does that mean to you?

when ever you purchase something from a link on our site to a online store we get a commission at no extra cost to you.

We are also expanding our scope to include destination wedding all through the Caribbean. More about that in the next couple of month.

Right now take a look around and if your heart is set on a St Thomas wedding here is some help.
