| Island Style Weddings was a long time in the making.
I spent many years working for major hotels and resorts on the US mainland
and in the US Virgin Islands. Within Marriott, Westin and Sheraton, I coordinated
events for Heads of State, celebrities and many corporations. In 2002 after
8 hotels and 17 years, I found my self unfulfilled and bored. Divine discontentment
gave me the push, I took a leap of faith and Island Style Weddings was born.
Island Style Weddings came from a vision and a passion to create a business that would make my heart sing! Do what you love and the rest will take care of itself - I have NEVER looked back.
Why Wedding Planning? As a planner by nature, wedding planning allows me to use my talents in an area that gives me great joy. Additionally, I get to share my knowledge and connections in St John with my clients to help fulfill their wedding dreams.
Being part of a wedding is an honor that forever stimulates me. My couples become friends for life, return for vow renewals, refer me to their friends and families and send me lots and lots of baby photos.
My love of St John and years of business experience here allow me to assist my couples in creating a celebration that reflects who they are- One of my first questions to brides is “describe to me your vision of your wedding day?” Every woman has a vision whether they know it or not- So my mission is to translate that vision into a real event.
I hope that you will consider planning an Island Style Wedding and share in the beauty of St. John. Begin the rest of your life here.
|| There is something incredibly fulfilling when our clients are overjoyed
with happiness and love on their wedding day! Planning all the details that
go into weddings both big and small is something that I love to do; and seeing
all the finishing touches customized for each of our clients come to fruition
is so rewarding. I could talk about colors, textures, lighting, style, and
design for days…but being able to bring our client’s inspiration and vision
to life is always very exciting! No two weddings are the same, and that is
what I love the most…
I have had the pleasure of working with Mary for over two years now, and I feel so lucky to be able to enjoy a job that I love with someone that continues to inspire me! Although I miss my family in my hometown of Seattle, Washington, St. John has embraced me with its love and beauty and living here in paradise has been a once-in-a-lifetime experience. My husband and I just celebrated our 5 year wedding anniversary and we are soaking in all that St. John has to offer while we are lucky to call ‘Love City’ our home.
I am inspired everyday by St. John’s surroundings, nature, and crystal clear water. Music and social media keep me on my toes and inspire me to share, grow, and learn. I’m always interested in hearing about the latest trends and styles, but usually tend to lean toward styles that are timeless and classic. Looking forward to hearing your creative inspirations, color fantasies, and dreams…let’s start planning!
