Stuart Scott is a non denominational wedding officiant that provides wedding services on St Thomas and St John in the gorgeous United States Virgin Islands. He can provide simple wedding services that include helping you file the paperwork, picking you up at your hotel or cruiseship, bringing you to the courthouse to pickup the paperwork, and then on to your ceremony site and of course back again.

All of his ceremonies are personalized with information he collects from the groom on the day of the wedding. His ceremonies are upbeat, with a little humor, and of course some tears. He can perform ceremonies on a boat, deserted island, beach, villa, anywhere you can imagine even underwater for those SCUBA enthusiasts. He can also provide some simple wedding planning items like champagne with glass flutes, bucket etc, and assistance in booking flowers and transportation.

He has also officiated many interfaith weddings with and without a Jewish officiant, same sex commitment ceremonies, vow renewals, and even group weddings and vow renewals. He tries to make each and every ceremony he performs personal and reflective of the couple and their needs and backgrounds. He works for all of the major hotels on the islands, including the famed Ritz Carlton Resort, as well as many of the idependent wedding planners so he can always give you advice if you need it.

If you ask, he will make it happen. Read less

INFO FOR OFFICIANT

What officiant services do you provide?
Interfaith Ceremony, Non-religious Ceremony, Single Religion Ceremony
What religious affiliations do you serve?
Baha'i Faith, Buddhist, Christian (no denomination), Christian - Baptist, Christian - Catholic, Christian - Episcopalian, Christian - Lutheran, Christian - Methodist, Christian - Mormon, Christian - Orthodox, Christian - Presbyterian, Christian - Quaker, Hindu, Jewish, Muslim, Shinto
Can you accommodate the hearing impaired?
No
Are you willing to perform a ceremony at a non-religious site?
Yes absolutely. I perform most of my ceremonies on a beach, boat, or villa.
Are you flexible in the wording used throughout the ceremony, including the vows?
The ceremony should reflect what you want, so do whatever you wish. And I never have "to obey" anywhere in my ceremony.
Do you allow the couple to write their own vows, if desired?
Absolutely!
Do you have a list of readings pre-selected, from which the couple must choose?
I have a few readings but you can download or find any reading you wish.
Do you require that premarital counseling be done?
Nope. But I do have some fun questions on my website you and your fiance should go through. They are fun and quite interesting as you find out alot more about your spouse and it creates conversations that might not have already happened.
Are you willing to perform pre-ceremony rehearsals?
Sure thing, although 99% don't need one as the Caribbean is much more relaxed and casual.

Janelle at Island Bliss Weddings set us up with Stu as our wedding officiant, and I'm so glad she did! He's a really nice and personable guy, and he made the ceremony so upbeat and fun. We first met and talked with him when he picked us up from our cruise ship, and he drove us to the court house and to the our ceremony site at Lindquist Beach. He chatted with us the whole way, plus gave us a bit of a tour en route to the beach and showed us a really beautiful spot called Drake's Seat. He also asked the groom several questions about how we met, pets we have, and things like that, and then incorporated them into the ceremony. My mother-in-law especially loved when he talked about our cats Orrie and Oleander during the ceremony!

Our ceremony was definitely the best I've ever seen, and I'm not just saying that because it was mine :) Stu really made it personalized and everyone loved it. I highly recommend him!

Stuart Scott is AWESOME!!! Stuart married my husband and I on February 22, 2014 at Trunk Bay in St. John, and we could not have been happier. We hired Stuart through his wife Janelle at Island Bliss Weddings. We couldn't have picked a better officiant.

Stuart also picked us up at our villa, drove us to the beach for the ceremony, then drove us to Waterfront Bistro for dinner after the ceremony. It was awesome getting to chat with him a little bit before we got to the beach to get married. He's a friendly guy who is easy to talk to. His ride was really nice too!!

Stuart did an awesome job with our ceremony. He pulled my husband aside before we started to have a little chat, and ended up adding in some personal info that made the ceremony super special. He even mentioned our kitty cats back home, which I thought was cute.

If you hire Stuart for your wedding, you will not be disappointed!! Thanks Stuart for making our special day so smooth and easy going :) You rock!

We chose Stuart Scott as our wedding officiant due to all the positive reviews, and we are extremely happy to say that he certainly deserves all the accolades. He takes some time with you beforehand to get know a little bit of your story, and then incorporates it into the ceremony to have the personal touch. He makes the happiest day of your life feel like it absolutely is. His words are inspiring and bring joy about the sanctity of marriage. The ceremony was simply amazing, and everything we hoped it would be. Stuart helped us make memories that we will cherish forever. We highly recommend Stuart and Janelle (wedding coordinator from Island Bliss Weddings) because they make a great team!

He captured exactly what we were looking for and I only spoke to him a few times through email and one phone call. We could not have been happier and our family still talks about the ceremony!

From my first correspondence with Stu, I knew I wanted him to be our officiant. Stu was able to personalize the ceremony as if he'd known us for years -- brought tears to everyone's eyes.

When our beach ceremony with just ourselves turned into a group of 25, Stu recommended the wedding planner, Janelle, at Island Bliss Weddings (who just happens to be his wife) - best decision I've made. Everything went off smoothly. This is the road to go if you're thinking of a destination wedding.

Stu and Janelle make a fabulous team both professionally and personally! You won't regret hiring them.

I was a bit nervous about having an officiate and ceremony by someone I had never met but by the end of our wedding day, I felt like I had known Stuart my entire life! Guests kept asking me who he was, thinking that he must have known me and my husband because the ceremony was so personalized to us. We booked Stuart through our wedding planner (Janelle at Island Bliss Weddings) and would highly recommend both to anyone! Tell Stuart that Kathy and Mike say hello!

If we could give Stuart 6 stars, we would. He was so patient, flexible and accommodating throughout the planning process (we coordinated everything ourselves from the East Coast) and beyond. His ceremony was meaningful and touching, and his presence was calming on such an important day. He took care of everything from photography and flowers to assisting us with all the paperwork accompanying an international wedding between a US and a non-US citizen. Stuart is knowledgeable, kind, and all around great. He would be a perfect choice for your special day.

I have to say that I really appreciated stuarts experience and professionalism. We were joining two families with our children acting as the wedding party. It was a magically day and I believe that Stuart was key in ensuring it was a success. He is like the perfect bridesmaid! He ensured we knew what to do and thought of many little details that I would have never thought of. He even went as far as to ensure my dress was perfect for the ceremony (remember my bridesmaids were 10 and 11). :-). Great guy!

My wife and I were married at the Ritz in St Thomas a couple of weeks ago. Stuart was absolutely amazing throughout the whole thing, I cannot recommend him enough. He walked us through the entire process before we arrived; took us to the courthouse to do the official paperwork and generally made us feel calm about the whole thing.
We aren't very religious and Stuart's version of the vows was refreshingly modern yet deep and meaningful and it managed to bring tears to the eyes of many. During the ceremony he was an excellent guide and genuinely made all the nerves just disappear. He has a great working relationship with the folks at the Ritz and between them they made sure everything was absolutely perfect.

My Wedding is actually still 3 weeks away but this review is a must because words do not describe how incredibly nice, helpful and thoughtful Stu Scott has been. Since contacting Stu about my wedding plans back in October I have been relieved and at easy planning my wedding with all of his help. His wife is actually a Wedding Planner herself so ask him about that if you need a planner( She's GREAT). Stu does not treat you as just another crazy bride that has a million and one questions. He is so helpful with every information you could possibly need to make your Wedding Day special. Trust that choosing Stu for your Wedding is the absolute best choice of your day beside your Groom of course :) I will post another review after my Wedding but I am 100% confident that Stu will make it just Amazing as I dreamed it to be.

We were so very fortunate to have Stuart preside over our wedding ceremony. His wife Janelle of Island Bliss Weddings assisted in planning our ceremony. Stuart was extra early to pick up my bridesmaids and I before the ceremony and allowed us to take our time to finish all last minute touch ups. Stuart had talked to my husband before the wedding to learn about our relationship. When he talked about us during the ceremony, he didn't miss a beat, it was like he has known us for years. We stuck to the traditional island vows and they were beautiful. Many of our guests raved about the way he performed the ceremony and some said it was the best ceremony they have ever been to. Will certainly request for Stuart to perform our vow renewal when the time comes.

Stu was arranged as our officiant by our wedding planner so we didn't 'hand-pick' him... but we would have anyways in hindsight! He was great! I'm sure he is capable of any type of ceremony, but we wanted something that would match our personalities, and we wanted it short and sweet. He gathered some info from my husband before the wedding and used it to create a fun and sweet ceremony that we absolutely loved. It was very 'us' and had our families smiling and maybe tearing-up a little too. Hopefully someday we'll make it back to St. Thomas and we can renew our vows with Stu as the officiant!

Stuart exceeded all of our very high expectations! He made everything stress free and went above and beyond the call of duty helping us make arrangements. In addition to personalizing our vows and making our ceremony unforgettable, he helped us with virtually EVERYTHING on our wedding trip including honeymoon suggestions. He even arranged a private boat charter to the BVI's for us. HIGHLY recommended!

If you are getting married in the Virgin Islands, Stuart is your man!

Thanks again Stu!!!

Five stars for Stuart, who was absolutely fantastic. He put both my husband and I at ease prior to the ceremony. The ceremony itself was absolutely lovely and had all of our guests in tears. Stuart was extremely kind and helpful, and seemed to genuinely care about making our big day special. Definitely recommend.

We put a lot of time in looking for (and communicating with) many of the officiates and wedding planners on St. Thomas. Once we found Stu, we knew he was right for us. Nobody else was as friendly and responsive, and after meeting him I definitely understand why he has more positive reviews than any other officiant on St. Thomas.

We're so happy with our choice, and Stu made our wedding personal and fun. He's charasmatic and funny, everyone loved him, and he arrived early and spent time with me discussing our relationship and history before the wedding. We requested a non-religious ceremony, which worked out very well. The vows were unique and wonderful, and the service itself couldn't have gone better. We are so fortunate to have found him.

One warning - it seems like he's (understandably) very popular! We booked him about 4 months before our wedding and took the last spot he had available for the day.

Stu did an absolutely wonderful job on a VERY short notice. My husband and I decided to get married in St. Thomas only days before our trip. Not only did he help us choose the absolutely perfect location, Saphire Point, but he hooked us up with others on the island to plan our entire weekend to make it special and certainly unforgettable. Since our families were unable to be there, he put our parents on the phone so they could be a part of the ceremony and hear the exchange of vows. He was able to find a great photographer, videographer, and a native to the islands to play the steel drums during the ceremony. He had a friend of his take us on an "island hopping" boating venture on Sunday; we went from St. Thomas to St. John, to Tortolla, to Jost Van Dyke and the "Soggy Dollar Bar" etc.. Scott Macomson was the captain and he did a great job. I can't say enough great things about our experience. -highly recommended. If anyone has any questions, feel free to contact Jill or Nick from Destin, Florida, at 2 0 5 - 6 4 1 - 1 8 8 0 or 2 0 5 - 9 0 7 - 1 2 6 5 !! God Bless ; )

Stuart was absolutely fabulous! My husband Mike and I got married last Friday at Pretty Klip Point, located at Sapphire Beach on St. Thomas. Mike and I decided to get married on St. Thomas just about a month ago, so we didn't have much time to get everything done, but when I contacted Stu everything just fell right in place. Not only was Stuart great but he also gave me a name of a videographer that was simply awesome to work with.

Stu went above and beyond what I even expected from him. Since it was just my husband and I at the wedding Stuart made it a point to tailor the wedding to fit us. I loved how he included many of our personal details about our relationship throughout the service. We were both so impressed with how Stu remembered every little detail Mike shared with him and included the things that mattered to us most like our dog Bailey, friends and family! It made our wedding day truly unforgettable.

To top things off Stu took us back to our hotel after the wedding, let us change and then offered to give us a ride to Megen's Bay! Along the way he was the best of host, telling us all about St. Thomas and stopping for us to take photos.

I honestly can't say enough about Stu... I feel like he is a really genuine guy who lives life to it's fullest. Don't spend another moment looking for anyone else on St. Thomas, Stuart Scott is the best on the island.

Stewart picked us up at our cruise ship and brought us to the courthouse to pick up our wedding papers. From the moment we met him, we knew this was going to work out great. He then whisked us off to the ceremony site on Megans Bay Beach.

He made our ceremony fun, enjoyable and memorable. He personalized the ceremony and had guests giggling in their seats. Just what we asked for!!!

Down the road when we plan to re-do our vows....Stewart and his wife (owner of Island Bliss Weddings) will be the first ones we call!

Stu married us on 1-1-11. One word to describe it- PERFECT! Stu included everything that we wanted and more. My husband and I ran away to the Virgin Islands to get married, leaving our 7 year old son at home (due to his disability it would have made it almost impossible to have him on the island). Stu made sure to mention our son several times throughout the ceremony, which was absolutely perfect. The day couldn't have gone any better. Stu was lighthearted, funny and yet serious at the right times. We can't imagine our wedding any different than what it was. Stu even went the extra mile to stop on our way back to the hotel to show us a cool view. He went above and beyond our expectations! Thanks so much, Stu!!

He is completely comfortable with incorporating your unique traditions into ceremonies and very professional.

His pep talk before the ceremony was very much appreciated and it was great to get a sense of his personality before the ceremony. He was fantastic and perfect for the type of ceremony we wanted.

Stu was a fabulous officiant! He went was willing to work with me on any aspect of the ceremony and really went above and beyond any of our expectations! He even ended up helping pick up my family from the airport and later helped line up a sailing trip for my parents! He really knew what he was doing as far as having us stand in certain ways so the pictures looked good. I have to admit, I thought his preferences were a bit unusual at first, but it became quickly apparent that he really knew what he was doing. We could not have been more pleased! - Michelle and Doug Lamansky

Stuart Scott goes above and beyond! I would recommend him wholeheartedly.

He really does feel like part of the family, as he gets to know you a little before the ceremony by asking questions about how you met and where you had your first date. I was so touched by his thoughtfulness to include some really personal and lovely stories from our life together. I could not have asked for anyone better!

Stewart is in our opinion the one and only officiant anyone would possibly want to make their wedding day top notch! From our first inquiry via email there was not a doubt in our minds that this man was the one we desired to pronounce us man and wife. We both desired a real down to earth type day. One that wouldn't break our bank, had a beach bar to have a few celebration drinks, and yet would be the most memorable day ever. Stu told us that he had the perfect site. Lime Tree Beach on St. Thomas. {Breathtaking!} We traveled with a group of eighteen. The Rev. referred us to Papa Bear from Airforce One to shuttle our guests to and from Lime Tree Beach. Papa Bear was more than a pleasure. He had the gang singing party songs along the transport route. People on the streets were singing and dancing along with us. Stewart referred my bride to a local florist to arrange flowers. Affordable and perfectly beautiful. For our guests we ordered several bottles of champagne for the toast. Our man Stewart supplied the flutes. He also recommended a photographer for our use. She was phenominal!!! As for the ceremony itself.... words cannot describe well enough how incredible it truely was standing barefoot in the Caribbean while Stewart performed the most perfect wedding. Our entire group was in awe and we still are. Stewart Scott gave to us a fantasy wedding. One that most couples would only dream about. You are forever in our hearts Stu!

Rev. Scott married us recently and I highly recommend him to any couple planning to get married in St. Thomas. We used his wife for wedding planning services and he provided transportation for us from the cruise port to the courthouse then to the beach and performed our wedding ceremony. He had my bouquet and my groom's boutonniere with him, too. He was really friendly, nice, and had a great sense of humor which helped us relax and enjoy our special day that much more. We had a weather issue and he was great with helping us quickly figure out a plan B and keep the ball rolling in another (and in some ways even better) location. He performed our ceremony with beautiful words and is an articulate and pleasant speaker, you won't mind his voice on your wedding video!

How did wedding planner make your day special? Janelle and her planning were fine, our problem was with her husband, Stu who we used for the officiant at our vow renewal. We had originally wanted to get married in St John, but were unable to, so after 5 years of marriage, had the "wedding" we'd wanted in the form of a vow renewal on Trunk Bay in St John at sunset. Janelle came highly recommended. I was very excited. When we got married, we were married in our home with just immediately family present and I wore a simple dress. This time I wore a bridal gown, had a gorgeous boquet of green orchids, had a private dinner at Caneel Bay, a gorgeous cake,and my family, my husbands family and extended family were all on St John for the ceremony, everything was the way we had wanted it to be when we'd gotten married in 2002. Stu took me aside before the ceremony and asked me for "sweet stories" about my husband. He took my husband aside and asked my husband what his pet peeves were about me. Not exactly a fair trade, huh? Now, my husband should have refused to answer but what he said was "she's messy" and Stu said "oh, so she's a slob? My wife's a slob too" My husband said "No, I didn't say that, I said she was messy" So during the ceremony, he goes through the "do you Joanna promise to continue to love honor and cherish Jim through richer and poorer, sickness and health?" and then he turns to my husband and says "Jim do you promise to continue to love honor and cherish Joanna through richer and poorer, sickness and health and POOR HOUSEKEEPING SKILLS?" Now, I don't know about you, but how would you feel if that was included in your vows during the ceremony that you'd planned and been so excited about and waited for and worked so hard to PAY for? How would that make you feel? Angry? Embarrased? Upset? Belittled? Humiliated? Check, Check, Check,Check and Check. You could hear my mother gasping and people were taken aback. It was completely uncalled for, I was completely humiliated. 2 sets of my husband's aunts and uncles were in attendance, who lives hundreds of miles away and have never been to our house, so they dont know that its not true, that our house isn't a total disaster. Yes, I'm slightly messy, but I"m not a slob my house is not a wreck, and I don't know if he thought he was being cute, but it put a black cloud over the whole experience and the memory. When I contacted Janelle about it, long afterwards, like well over a year later when I was still just seeing red every time I thought about it, I believe she told me that Stu didnt remember saying that but if he had he wouldnt have said it unless my husband had ok'd it. My husband is just as upset about it as I am, and he most certainly did not know he was going to say that in the ceremony. It was most inappropriate. And my husband has had to be the one to deal with the aftermath of an upset wife after the incident.

Services Used: Wedding Planning
USVI Services responded with the following comments:

I have to say it is upsetting that after many years that this bride is still bothered by this comment as I want everyones special day to be perfect. Out of close to 2000 weddings this was the only complaint I've had. I read everything I am going to say back to the person to make sure it is safe to say. Everyone except the bride thought it was light hearted teasing and funny because everyone laughed. I asked for funny stories from him and he couldn't come up with any so I said what about pet peeves like addiction to shoe shopping etc. I try to make my ceremony light hearted and funny. I'm very sorry you took this so personally but if you watch the video you will hear laughter

Sometimes you just have to consider the source when reading reviews. Although I no longer add in funny stories other than how a couple met because of this bride. Apparently sometimes grooms can't judge their brides sense of humor, so I have taken a "better safe than sorry" approach although my ceremonies are still slightly funny in the right places and always personalized.

By the way I do recall the wedding as there was a controversy over if the brides family was going to show up or not. So I vividly remember reading back the intro about how you met and the messy comment and making sure if it was ok. So for him to say I didn't read it back is purely false.
