I was recently married and chose the Fly Away to an Enchanted Island package. Everything was absolutely perfect- the private beach, the ceremony, beautiful flowers, our wedding photos, etc. Deb was always available via e-mail and phone throughout the planning process. Deb took the stress out of the planning process (mostly because she did it all!) Deb went above and beyond to make our wedding day perfect! I would highly recommend Beach Weddings by Deb for any bride-to-be!

Deb was fabulous to work with. It had always been our dream to have a beach wedding. Deb responded within 24 hours of contacting her in January and was very informative. After researching different venues we decided to go with Beach Weddings by Deb based on reviews and her honesty. After emailing a handful of different wedding planners Deb was the only one who mentioned that the courthouse was closed the date we chose. Every other vendor failed to mention this and said yes we can accommodate you no problem. We decided to fly down early to get our marriage license and Deb met us with open arms at the courthouse. She also gave us a ride to our hotel after!

Our wedding day was absolutely fabulous, we had a beautiful beach, and an amazing reception on the catamaran afterward. Our guests were amazed and still talk about how great everything was. Definitely choose Beach Weddings by Deb! You won't be disappointed!

Deb and Gary are absolutely amazing. If you are looking for a beautiful and stress free wedding I would recommend that you contact them. Deb handles all details and actually had to make some last minute changes to my plans due to tropical storm Bertha without my input. She did a wonderful job and our wedding was absolutely beautiful. The cake, flowers and photography by Gary were all amazing. The value that you receive for the fees that they charge is incredible. I've passed their information along to my travel agent and would absolutely recommend their services! Julie from Texas

We were very unhappy with Deb's services. From the minute we got off the cruise ship she was rude; talking about money and how late the ship was. As an experienced wedding planner she should know that weddings are stressful enough and she should be the last person adding anxiety to this special day. My husband and I did have a wonderful wedding surrounded by family and friends but we were very disappointed in the services given by an "experienced wedding planner." She in no way went above and beyond and forgot many requests agreed upon or performed them only half way. We should have been cued in to her inattention to detail by the constant, grammatically incorrect emails. My grandfather was planning to marry us, which she forgot, as well as left without him signing the marriage license. A cheap "fancy" framed marriage certificate (not real) was sent to us without the spaces filled in for our witnesses and my name spelt wrong, among many, many other things. When confronted about her inattention to detail, no apology was given. In fact, Deb stated that the things that went wrong were our responsibility. However, in my opinion, the whole point of hiring a wedding planner is because I have never been married, put on a wedding, nor have any clue as to what I should consider when planning my own wedding. We count on the WEDDING PLANNER to remind us of important things and to point out things that we would otherwise not have known to consider.

Truly, none of the forgotten details would have bothered us if she hadn't been so rude from the start.

Beach Weddings By Deb responded with the following comments:

I am happy that this bride had a wonderful wedding; it truly was a challenge to provide it.

The cruise ship was an hour late, for which we can and have accommodated for, and have oftentimes had to adjust our outside vendor times. An hour is not too bad. However, long after the ship docked and started disembarking passengers, the bride and groom then took another hour departing the ship. The guests then took an additional hour to leave the ship after the bride and groom had left it. This pushed the wedding schedule ahead by three hours and also shortened their day by three hours!

They need to understand how a three-hour delay actually affected the private charter commissioned for the day and the amount of time left before the cruise ship left port.

They also had to make some decisions as to the payment of the hourly vendors’ additional pay or letting them leave.

Going “above and beyond” does not mean getting the cruise ship to stay an extra three hours.

Items not on the contract or what “above and beyond” means to me are the following:

• Getting one of our musician vendors to learn a special (never heard of before) song to be sung and in doing so needing and supplying an additional musician at no additional cost.
• Acquiring and processing the grandfather’s documents at the courthouse in order for him to legally marry them (which were signed before the time of departure).
• Supplying complementary wrist corsages for the grandmothers attending.
• Working with the Coast Guard to allow the Catamaran additional time at their dock for boarding.
• Adjusting day schedule to fit time and weather.

Why should it matter to the Bride and Groom? As the clients and signers of the contract, they are responsible for the balance due and additional charges which are all stated in the contract.

I received so many hugs and handshakes from friends and relatives as they left at the end of day and then read this review.

My husband and I got married in St. Thomas in the beginning of January and we highly recommend Beach Weddings by Deb. Deb and her photographer husband Gary Felton handled all our details professionally and there was zero stress in dealing with them. I cannot thank them enough. We picked them based upon reviews I saw here on WeddingWire and I am please to give them a great rating myself.

Deb and Gary were wonderful, caring, and accommodating people. Since we had never been to St. Thomas/St. John and were arriving via cruise ship, we really needed someone to take the reins. We are avid planners and I kept in touch with Deb almost every month for a year. Deb took care of coordinating with our family (who arrived earlier than we did) and even picked them up after we departed the island and took them back to their hotel. The flowers were beautiful, the beach was amazing, lunch was good, the boat trip was wonderful, and Gary produced the most amazing photos. Deb was extremely flexible with us, the cruise ship itinerary, the weather, and took care of our needs so we could get the most out of our trip. I’d definitely recommend Deb to plan your wedding day on St. Thomas. She definitely knows the area, the people, and every detail of the island. We had the perfect wedding day and everything we envisioned came true. It was more than worth every penny. I will never forget our special wedding experience. Thank you both so much!
