We are more than happy with our experience and would highly recommend them to anyone organizing an event on St. John!

Working with Pallie Gilbert, of Ceremonies St. John, was the best decision my husband and I made about our wedding! Planning a desination wedding is a very daunting task and without her it would have been nothing like what we experienced! From moment one she handled everything! From helping with the venue booking, day of transportation, flowers, music, food and even helping all out of town guests with accommodations and booking; she not only made it a pleasant experience, but our wedding day was BEYOND perfection!! It was very clear from the beginning that she put her heart and soul into making our day perfect! She handled everything! She is very good with communicating and she was very attentive to our wishes. Coordinating things down in the islands in never easy, but Pallie took away ALL of the stress and it allowed us to really enjoy our time with our family and friends! It is very clear that she cares a great deal about her work and really puts herself into what she does! Our reception was seriously something out of a dream! Our beachside wedding with the reception just under the palms was beautiful enough; but having everything perfectly synchronized and completely stress free was what made all of her planning stand out! She really out did herself with our reception! I could never say enough about how wonderful she made it! If I could suggest anything to someone trying to plan a wedding or event on St. John, the only way to go is with her! My husband even loved working with her!! And that's saying a lot!

I was so wonderful having a wedding with no stress! We never thought it would be possible. They took care of everything for us and all we had to do was make a couple decisions. All we had to do was show up and we got a perfect wedding! It was also a relief to have quick response to emails and phone calls along with prompt service on the day of the wedding.

If you are considering getting married in St. John and want a stress free planning process Ceremonies of St. John is the company to work with! I got married in November and started working with Pallie in January 2013. From the beginning the planning process was so easy! It is hard to trust that your destination wedding will come out exactly as you envisioned when you are not there to be hands on in the planning process, Pallie ensured that she was my eyes and ears and everything I wanted she made sure happened. Every time I sent an email (and there were probably hundreds!) Pallie was quick to respond, usually the same day. She went above and beyond to give advice about things local (when is the best time to have the ceremony, which beach is best, what types of flowers hold up best in the climate etc.). I sent many photos of things that I wanted included in the ceremony and my cake, flowers, aisle of palms etc. came out just as I had envisioned. Looking back there is not a single thing I would change; I recommend Pallie and Stacy at Ceremonies of St. John without hesitation and thank them for making our wedding day just perfect!

Couldn't have done all the planning with out Pallie and Ceremonies of St John. The stress of the nation parks being closed and trying to find a new venue if needed. Definitely couldn't have handled it on my own. Pallie became me best friend over 3 months. Thank you for everything u guys did for us. John and Nikki Gustafson

Even with our luggage NOT arriving with us until 6 hours before the wedding we had THE PERFECT wedding! Ceremonies of St. John was very helpful--start to finish. Pallie was quick to respond to all of my questions, easy to work with and flexible when I changed my mind about a few services I wanted to add. The team was very professional and helpful through out the entire planning process and the ceremony. It was nice having a stress free day, even though the entire day was planned from a distance. Once we received our luggage we were in the pool and enjoying lunch, like I said stress free! I highly recommend Ceremonies of St. John!

St John is paradise. If you are looking to get married on an island with a ton of night life, lots of people, big, flashy resorts...St John is not for you. If you want a small piece of heaven, and untouched beauty then head to the small island of St. John. And if you want to make this amazing place your wedding location, then Ceremonies of St. John are the people you need. We had the privilege of knowing the island pretty well before we decided to marry there, but Ceremonies of St John helped us in ways I can't even describe. From picking flowers, to a date, to a beach, to a reception location...EVERYTHING was taken care of. Pallie answered every million question I had and responded to my emails so quick I never got the chance to panic. A destination wedding can be an overwhelming thing to think about but with Pallie's help along the way it was the BEST decision we ever made. If we had to do it again, there is not a thing we would change and we have Pallie and Ceremonies of St John to thank for that.

My husband and I flew to St. John about a year and a half before our wedding to check out the island and meet with some wedding planners. We met with a couple different wedding planners/coordinators on the island and ended up choosing Stacy. Actually, Stacy came highly recommended to us by several people that we met on the island during our short stay. From that point on until the wedding, Stacy was awesome. I was a little OCD about things, and Stacy always answered all of my questions in a timely manner. She was always willing to help and give advice. She was fantastic to work with even when my husband and I changed our minds or added things on to the wedding. Her recommendations on where to get hair and makeup done on the island and where to have our mini reception turned out to be awesome! She even went above and beyond to keep me sane during the last week or so before the wedding...I was very nervous about the weather and that the court house on St. Thomas kept saying that hadn't received our marriage license application yet. But everything turned out beautifully! I couldn't have been more happy with the flowers, chairs, steel pan drummer, Reverend, etc. We loved everything! Stacy's services were well worth the money! The day of the wedding, she did everything, all I had to do was show up....she definitely made our wedding beautiful and stress free! :-)

Stacy is the most amazing wedding planner and I really tested her including over 30 emails a few days ahead of the wedding. Three days before the wedding I asked if she could help me with a hair stylist and she had one at my hotel door at 7:30 am the day of the wedding. The flowers were breathtaking as were the cake and table. The cake was honestly the most beautiful and best tasting cake I have ever had.

The cake was absolutely beautiful! It turned out perfectly. I had a three tier cake with different flavors on each tier. She worked with my florist (East-end) to make sure the cake flowers were consistent with the rest of the wedding flowers. She also delivered the cake to the villa so there was no stress involved. It was gorgeous and tasted wonderful! Thanks so much!!

Stacy Mulcare provided amazing services. Stacy was so helpful, professional and pleasant to work with. On a day where many stresses can take place, her diligence and expertise made everything smooth and wonderful.

Prior to contacting Stacy, I called five other wedding planners in four different countries. Stacy was the only person who offered the information in an organized manner, with reassurances. Her website is simply the best! Her availability after the contract was signed was beyond expectation. We truly appreciate everything Staacy did and think she is the No. 1 wedding planner in the world!

Sage and Steve were great to work with as well. We were pleased with how relaxing it was to work with them. They are clearly at the top of their field in their respected profession.

Stacy planned our wedding on Trunk Bay in St John on July 10, 2010 (in less than 3 months). Having never been to the USVI, Stacy provided helpful suggestions and input on accomodations both in St John and St Thomas as well as restaurants and activities beyond the wedding events. Her responsiveness and attention to detail was much appreciated by this Type A bride. It started to drizzle when our big moment arrived, but Stacy kept the calm with umbrellas and thoughts of good luck for rain on your wedding day! The ceremony turned out beautifully and the pictures amazing. All of the vendors Stacy coordinated were top notch.

Stacy was the main reason that our wedding went perfectly down to every detail. She is organized and professional as well as very knowledgeable about St. John having lived on the island for many years. She took care of everything we could ask for including our ceremony, reception and our catering needs for the day after. Everything went off without a hitch!

(Her husband, Shay, also is an incredibly talented baker and makes the most beautiful cakes on the island.)

I highly recommend Stacy and her services - she is a special lady who is the best choice for your special day!

Stacey and her assistant, Pallie were EXCELLENT! I live in New Jersey and wanted everything done for me so that our wedding would be relaxed and stress free. That is exactly what I got. They went above and beyond referring all the things I needed if it was something she did not handle such as a private boat trip after our sunrise ceremony, a phenomenal restaurant to have our celebration dinner, etc. etc, Pastor Sampson was a sweetheart and the location Stacey picked was just perfect. I felt very special and I could not have asked for more. Every email I sent was answered within an hour, at all times of the day. I highly recommend Ceremonies of St. John if you want to work with someone who works hard at every detail to make your day special. Our photographer was also wonderful.

Thank you for making our wedding a stress-free day! My husband and I didn't have to deal with any of the details that other couples complain about; all we had to do was get dressed and wait for Pallie to pick us up. She handed me my bouquet and pointed me toward the beach...an absolutely AMAZING beach.

And special thanks to Pallie. She made an extra effort to pick up a sentimental cake topper from me the day before our wedding. She dropped it off at the reception venue-even though it wasn't in our contract.

I will recommend this vendor (and a destination wedding in St. John) to everyone.

The pluses: The wedding day was beautiful! The weather turned out perfect despite a major tropical storm just days prior to the wedding, and the setting was gorgeous. The Minister (R. Nelson) and photographer (Sage) were great!

The minuses: Expectations of what we were supposed to arrange versus what the wedding 'planner' would arrange was not clearly communicated. (1) We did not learn that we were responsible for securing hair/make-up stylists without guidance from the planner. We had to scramble at the last minute to find stylists that could accommodate the date/time/location needed prior to the wedding and our wedding date was very popular so many stylists were already booked. We were unfamiliar with the island and didn't know the reputation of any stylists or their ability to deliver as promised. Fortunately, we found a terrific stylist (Kristina Pearsall) that got the job done! (2) We were not informed that flowers had to be ordered two weeks prior to the wedding date. It just so happened that a few weeks prior to the date, we reached out to the coordinator, since we had not heard from her in a while, to see if any last minute things needed to be done on our end and that's when we learned of the requirements for the flowers. (3) We were unaware that the wedding planner would not provide a location to dress prior to the wedding - we stayed in a hotel on St. Thomas and the wedding was on St. John, so we had to wear our wedding outfits on the ferry boat rides between the islands. We did receive a refund for the transportation portion of the fees paid to the wedding planner. (4) Email communication was usually initiated on our end and some of the responses were slow and did not address the questions adequately. We did request to a meeting prior to the date to help lessen the anxiety and Stacy was agreeable to a one-time meeting prior to the wedding at no additional cost.

In retrospect, we have beautiful memories of our special day and when we met Stacy, we enjoyed her upbeat personality; but the periods of pre-planning anxiety and frustration could have been alleviated with Stacy sending us a simple checklist of items that we needed to have completed along with time frames for completion. Another suggestion would be to keep some paper towel rolls on hand in the limo. Since this was our first visit to the islands, we were not expecting the sweltering humidity levels we encountered in the early morning hours. Needless to say, we looked pretty diaphoretic in some of the photos. Future couples could really benefit from a few adjustments, and our ratings would have been much higher had those items already been part of the wedding planner's toolkit.

Ceremonies of St. John responded with the following comments:

I would like to take this opportunity to respond to your negative comments.

1. August 29 and again October 4 we discussed hiring a hair stylist for you on St. John so that you could travel from St. Thomas and get ready on St. John. I explained Oct. 10 was a very busy day I needed to make the salon reservation in August. You declined this offer in an email and said you "wanted to waint unitl you got here to look around".

2. You placed the flower order with me in August and then did not remember what you ordered and inquired again at the end of September. You recieved the exact flower order you requested for the wedding day.

3.This statement is completely false. You knew as early as August that the only location to get dressed on St. John would be at a salon, the bathroom at the beach, or a public bathroom. If you did not want to use any of these facilities, you would need to be dressed upon arrival to St. John from St. Thomas.

4. Of course I would meet with you once you were in the Virgin Islands. You arrived on October 7 and I meet with you on October 8. The wedding was on October 10.

5. In an August 29 email to your husband, I provided an itinerary of the wedding day timeline and answered every question he asked about the checklist. May I say, this is the same information provided on the telephone to you in several conversations leading up to the August 29 email.

6. You declined the transportation offered in your wedding package and chose to take a car barge from St. Thomas. When you arrived at the beach, you had wash cloths from the hotel with you in your rental car. The private car you declined is stocked with hand towels, paper towels, water, and a box of items any Bride may need on her special day.

I am surprised by your review since you sent an email to me on November 25 stating, "Jerome & I had a blast in the VI. Thanks for making our special day fabulous! Sincerely,
Kymala

Hello I used Stacey for my Nov 11 wedding in St John. Unfortunately, I was not that pleased. To be fair, she was nice at the ceremony but my pre-planning experience was not very good. I initially hired her for the day of and also to plan our dinner at Morgan’s Mango. Right from the get go I did not feel like I was a priority. It was common to take a few weeks to get a reply. But I figured she was busy. July 1st I asked her if she could do a quick walk through at the restaurant, we were 4 ½ months out to the ceremony and I needed to figure out how many tables and therefore how many centerpieces I needed. By the end of July she had not done that. I just started working with Carlos, the owner of Morgan’s Mango (he is the best!), and we planned the menu, tables, etc. So at the end of July I very politely emailed her and said I hadn’t heard back in nearly a month and I needed to get this done so I did it myself, I asked if she would refund that portion of her fee. To her credit, she agreed.

After that point her communication would take longer and her replies were shorter (and curt). I really got the sense of…I paid for the basic “day of” and she wasn’t going to give me one cent more in advice. Ironically, I originally wanted to pay her for more planning but should wouldn’t help me and I was approaching 3 months out.

I was having some issues with chairs rental etc and I would email her asking what she has done in the past etc and what looks best, etc and she would just say short answers like it’s really your decision. I emailed back, “please I’m asking for your advice as a professional event planner”. I kept my questions to “day of” only and still didn’t get the help I needed.

I honestly wanted to completely end my contract at that time, but I didn’t think I would get my money back. So I put a smile on and thought I will do everything on my own and just get through the day of. Thank goodness for all the kind advice I got from the restaurant, my photographer and even the boat rental company!

Another thing I noticed was her pricing. She quoted me $3 per plastic flute + 20% gratuity so for 50 people is $180. I called another planner down there and she was charging a $1 per flute and no grat on plastic wear so $50. The same went for other items she quoted me so I did them on my own. I had to ask numerous times to do a rehearsal (she didn't think it was necessary) and when we finally did she acted rushed to my family (granted it was a little chaotic, but lets be nice).

I actually could list more concerns but I honestly feel bad writing a negative review and I’m not out to ruin anyone’s business. I just wanted to share my personal experience. I do believe if you have a big budget and just want to let her up charge everything, I’m sure she knows what she is doing. For me, I wanted someone that was nice and helpful and didn’t add stress to my wedding planning, it didn’t really work out.

Ceremonies of St. John responded with the following comments:

First let me say how disappointed I am to read your review of my services for your wedding day.

I researched every email we exchanged with each other beginning in March, 2010. At the most, you waited 6 days for a response from me and not a "few weeks to reply". In most cases, I responded to you on the same day or within 48 hours.

Yes, you did request on July 2 for me to do a walk thru at the restaurant that week. I explained it was a holiday week and would not be able to get there for you.

Next, you did inform me that you work as an event planner and would prefer to do most planning on your own. You asked me to hire a Minister, get a permit, and provide transporation for you to the ceremony. You no longer wanted to me plan any other services for the ceremeony and that you would take care of planning your own reception and hiring the vendors. At that time, I refunded a portion of your contract.

I am not sure what you are referring to when you say I did not give you more advice nor would I help you with anymore planning. I gave you advice all the way up to the rehearsal at the beach. The week leading up the wedding you were still asking my advice on chair rentals that you arranged on your own and a rehearsal at the beach that your step mother was requesting and not you.

When I stated in an email, "It really is your decision", the question you asked was whether you needed a rehearsal on the beach.

I have to take exception with what you have written about the Rehearsal at the beach. First, you were over 20 min. late to the beach. Secondly, with more than 25 people at the beach, it was difficult for you to stay focused and to get the wedding party out of the water. Lastly, I was on the beach with you for over and hour. I hardly think I rushed you on this day.

Again, remember that you wanted to be the event planner on St. John and only needed me to provide a Minister, permit and transportation for the bridal couple.

Please remember that the Groom disappeared for over 30 minutes when it was time to depart. That is a long time to keep the car waiting for you after the ceremony has concluded.

Once I dropped you off at Morgan's Mango, the Groom's brother asked for a ride back to his condo to get items needed for the reception. I took him back, waited for him to find the items, and then drove him back to the reception.

It was a choatic day because of the constant rain, you trying to work as a planner, and your expectations of me to do more than you were willing to hire me to do for you.

As expected and anticipated, just as on our wedding day, it would appear that Stacy is still not accepting responsibility for her blunder which cost us our wedding. We contacted her the previous day requesting the chapel service. She "claims" she contacted us at 9:20am at which time we called her and requested the service be held at the chapel (again) which would cost and additional $100.00 (not revealed to us until that day). We waited for her call until 10:00am at which time we called her again, and were instructed to "sit tight" until they called us back. An hour and a half passed until we heard from her. She was unable to contact her chapel or her minister, (one who claims that they have SO much experience in wedding planning can't even contact a minster on a Tuesday morning over 2 hours?) & told us that the ferry was a 15 minute taxi ride from our cruise ship dock. When we met up with a taxi driver (character witness in our law suit), he informed us (the truth) that the ferry was at least 40 minutes away. When we called Stacy to let her know that the ferry would be missed (by her own fault) she became disruptive and told us QUOTE"You signed the contract, so my a** is covered... So you'd better stop by an ATM before you get here, because it's $300.00 cash for the additional hour! End Quote" The cab driver was so appauled by her demeanor, didn't charge us for the time spent in the cab. Two and a half hours it allegedly took her to contact her minister who told her 11:40am that he had already left for the ferry. Convenient and pathetic way $300.00 on top of the $510.00 we already paid for services and goods we never received. All due to the wedding planners negativity, superiority complex, and astronomical failure to communicate properly; with her minister, her chapel contacts and with us. again avoid. there are many better planners to work with here.

Ceremonies of St. John responded with the following comments:

I am sorry to read this post today and feel it is necessary to respond.

As a professional wedding planner and business owner, I did not use any foul language when speaking to this client. The bride did use profanity not normally heard in a business setting.

This client was to marry at 12:30 p.m. on St. John. It was raining on their wedding day and the client did not want to marry on the beach as was contracted. I offered two rain plan options to this client at 9:20 a.m. The client selected to change the location to a local chapel provided I could get in touch with that chapel's Minister to confirm the use of that Church.
The Minister was not able to return the calls on the day of the wedding. The couple was told of the two options, but at no time was the ceremony start time changed. The couple did not make the required ferry on time to travel from their cruise ship on St. Thomas to St. John. The Bride did not want to travel or get married in the rain and told us her "day was already ruined". The client chose to cancel the wedding 30 minutes prior to the start time. If a cruise ship passenger does not arrive on St. John at the designated time, the wedding planning company has to pay their vendors to wait until the couple does arrive. There is a delay fee charged for the vendors and that is stated in the contract. No one was trying to "strong arm" this client for more money. They were late, did not want to pay a late fee, cancelled in an untimely manner, and expected a full refund.
Ceremonies of St. John's wedding plans were in place, the vendors were on the island as required, and this couple never showed up. Ceremonies of St. John was in constant contact with this client from 9:06 am (emails) until 12:05 p.m. when they cancelled their plans.

I am fully aware of the stress that comes with traveling to a new island for your destination wedding, especially when you throw in inclimate weather. Ceremonies of St. John covered all of the bases providing contingency plans for the weather in a timely manner.
