In a fast paced world where personalized service and commitment is rapidly being lost, Island Style Weddings stands firm on providing quality, not quantity to our couples. Since 2002, we have been designing Caribbean celebrations with elegance and style. We want to be your guide, friend and professional to ensure your day is perfect.

Island Style Weddings has chosen value over volume, resisting the lure of expansion and keeping the personal touch. You can rest assured that your wedding will be our primary focus and the two of you are the guests of honor.

Because we have chosen to stay small and personalized, Mary Castle Bartolucci guarantees that your wedding and events leading up to it will be coordinated with you and your vision in mind. Being located in the US Virgin islands, our location already provides the magical atmosphere that many other locations must manufacture.

Island Style Weddings on St John, USVI destination weddings are ideal for those brides and grooms who want to make their wedding day truly unique. Destination weddings are perfect for couples who don’t want the stress and additional expense of the large number of guests and formalities that are often expected in traditional weddings. A wedding on St John United States Virgin Islands in the Caribbean offers many options. Your island wedding could a completely private and romantic ceremony for just the two of you and a honeymoon to boot! It could be a close and personal event to be attended by only your closest friends and family. Or if the two of you are dreaming of a multi day island party - what better place than a fabulous private villa( max 50 guests) or one of the great resorts such as Caneel Bay or the Westin St John. On St John, there are many exceptional locations and unspoiled beaches.

St John, United States Virgin Islands, is well equipped to handle weddings for couples from anywhere around the world. The least populated of the U.S. Virgin Islands, St John (5,000 year round residents) is unspoiled by McDonalds, no red lights- not even Starbucks has penetrated this little island gem in the Caribbean. It offers many possibilities for unique and stunningly beautiful wedding locales. In addition, entry to and from America’s Caribbean, the U.S. Virgin Islands, by U.S. citizens does not require a passport, (proof of citizenship i.e.- birth certificate or voter registration is require) making it easy for all to travel to your St. John Wedding. At Island Style Weddings, we offer years of expertise in planning all types of Caribbean destination weddings.

Many couples are concerned about asking their guests to travel to another location for their wedding- However a destination wedding offers great value and many benefits in comparison to a traditional wedding. A traditional wedding is usually hosted for one afternoon or evening. Sometimes the bride and groom are so caught up in the whirlwind they don't have a moment to take it all in. A destination wedding offers the guests and the wedding couple some time to unwind from their day to day life and more time to spend with each other. They can celebrate their wedding in festive and relaxing setting. In addition, your guests are offered an opportunity for a much deserved vacation, a family reunion as well as a wedding they will never forget. Destination weddings create lasting memories not just for the couple but the guests as well.


The tropical paradise that is St. John has a special way of unravelling tension. However, planning a wedding is always stressful, especially if you live hundreds, or even thousands of miles from the wedding locale. At Island Style Weddings, we are skilled at helping couples plan their special day, even from remote distances. No matter what degree of guidance you seek, we can help. Have you always envisioned being married at sunset, barefoot on the beach? If so, we can make that dream a reality. Caribbean destination weddings are a truly spectacular experience for everyone involved. If you are interested in looking into a wedding celebration on the beautiful island of St. John, located in the US Virgin Islands, contact Mary Castle Bartolucci by email at mary@islandstyleweddings.com or call (340) 774-1484 to begin planning the Island Style Wedding of your dreams.

Hiring Island Style Weddings was the best decision I made...after saying "yes!" to my now husband. Mary and Leah were on top of every detail. They helped plan and coordinate our welcome party, snorkel trip, sunset sail, AND wedding day. Every detail was taken care of beautifully. Our wedding celebration was perfection thanks to ISW.

All I can say is that Island Style Weddings is the best to work with in executing your vision for your wedding within budget with care and class. I never could have imagined a more perfect team to work with. Over the past eleven months, Mary would touch base or I would shoot her an email (or send her numerous Pinterest ideas) on what I was thinking and she was always responsive and objective (which I love!) I think we quickly got a sense of each other's style and personality and that worked well in terms of the trust and comfort level for making decisions for the wedding. We had two minor hiccups within the planning which they handled with true professionalism -one, a change of the reception venue and two, inclement weather the morning of my wedding. On the day of my wedding it poured and poured and Mary called me that morning to tell me not to panic and that she would work on a back up plan in case the ceremony could not happen at Trunk Bay. In the end, I decided to take my chances and hope that the rain would stop (and it did!) and Mary and Leah never forced me to change my mind and I appreciate that. Dom and I could not have been more happy with their support in making #onekingdomforever an unforgettable day! Tablescape for reception sparkled, flowers added the rich, vibrant color, recommended DJ had everyone on their feet, and the drinks were flowing which is EXACTLY what we wanted!
When we are ready to celebrate our 5 anniversary we will certainly call on Mary and Leah again!

Mary and Leah at Island Style Weddings made planning a wedding on an Island fun and stress-free! Mary loves St. John and the other Virgin Islands and is intimately involved in the community. Because of this she knows the best venues for each budget and which vendors are reliable and offer quality service. The florist, band, ceremony musicians, and taxi drivers went above and beyond our expectations! The setting overlooking the clear blue sea was spectacular! Island Style Weddings encouraged us to make our ceremony special and personal. We were able to ship 13 boxes to their office for Welcome Bags and other signs, photos and momentos to make Jenna's wedding vision come true. The day of the wedding we didn't worry about a thing - just enjoyed our guests and savored each moment! Many of our guests said that it was the most meaningful ceremony they had ever attended and the most fun reception. Our family can recommend Island Style Weddings without reservation!

Mary is wonderful to work with if you like organization, follow through, and a wedding that is not only beautiful but stress free. We planned our entire wedding site unseen without ever visiting St John. We were not disappointed..all was better than we could ask, think, or imagine. Mary was very committed to giving us what we wanted in food, music, flowers, drinks, sunset sails, welcome party venues and amazing food! We spoke every few weeks for planning purposes for over 6 months. She was so helpful in keeping us on track......provided us with timelines, reception decor options, ceremony samples and island travel details which made things so easy for our quests. Everyone who joined us in St. John loved Mary and Leah. We consider them friends and we feel so blessed to have them a part of our Wedding memories. We couldn't have done it without them!

Island Style Weddings is the best wedding planning vendor of the Virgin Islands!!! They worked with me for months before the wedding to make me feel comfortable and EXCITED about planning a wedding remotely. The week of my wedding was absolutely picture perfect and was more beautiful than I ever could have imagined, thanks to the hard work of Mary and Leah. All of the wedding events went so smooth and they were both there for me and my wedding guests to answer any and all questions through out the week. I would highly recommend using Island Style Weddings for any of your events in the Virgin Islands...I want to do it all over again!!

Every event throughout the week, from sail/snorkel trips to rehearsal sail and the wedding itself, was perfect and all of our guests complimented us profusely and even thanked us for inviting them!

Mary and Leah were fabulous throughout the whole process! They were organized, calm, efficient and thorough. They dealt with all the local vendors for us and kept things well under control. Last minute request were taking care of graciously an effectively.

Leah and Mary came to our villa to help decorate for a private dinner which turned out beautifully.

At the beginning of our wedding week, we were faced with Hurricane Gonzalo possibly hitting St. John!!! We were blessed that it didn't. Mary was extremely helpful in keeping us calm, offering Plan B if needed, and helping make alternate hotel accommodations for 8 people for the first night we were supposed to stay in a villa.( we couldn't get in because the were hurricane proofing the villa)

Wedding day it was threatening rain and Mary and Leah had everything planned should that happen. It didn't and we had a beautiful ceremony. All of Mary's suggestions: a welcome evening at the Motu, an all day sail trip on the Island Spirit and a sunset sail for the reception were SO much fun. It was a magical week and the best wedding ever!!!
