Romantic Beach Wedding

Ellen and I cannot thank you enough for helping to make our wedding getaway in St. John the most amazing experience of our lives. It has been almost 1 year since we were lucky and privileged, enough to have you as our wedding official. Your service, the island of St. John, was like a gift from above.

We were reminded of you tonight when WE SAW YOU ON THE TRAVEL CHANNEL! I just happened to flip to the Travel Channel and there you were performing a wedding! Anyway, thank you again for the wonderful service you blessed us with at Hawk’s Nest Beach.
Thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you.

Anne Marie Porter was recommended to me by a family that hired her for their wedding! I had never been to St. John and did not know anybody or any of the businesses in the area. Planning a wedding in a place you do not know is unnerving! Anne Marie offers an extremely affordable and invaluable wedding planning service! She works with you to not only plan your ceremony (as SHE is the officiant) but also put you in contact with other professionals on the island for all of your wedding needs! When I arrived in St. John, my florist, hairdresser, and photographer were already in line and ready for the ceremony. I could not have coordinated a more perfect ceremony without Anne Marie’s years of expertise-it was perfect!

Our wedding was perfect, what else can I say? From the planning stages to the ceremony Anne Marie made sure she knew what we wanted and exceeded our expectations. She is someone who we will always hold very dearly in our hearts because she was such an important part of our most special day.

Choosing Anne Marie to renew our wedding vows was one of the best decisions my wife and I have ever made, because not only is she the absolute best at what she does, and on the #1 best island in the Caribbean, but she has become one of our dearest lifelong friends as well. You will love her too!

Anne Marie is the most beautiful soul! She exudes warmth and love which makes her perfect at what she does. She married my husband and me several years ago on the beach and we still talk about what an amazing experience it was. I can’t think of anybody I would rather have had to do the ceremony – it was perfect!
