Same-Sex Couples Can Be Married in the V.I.

“Good Morning Anne Marie!
We just wanted to thank you again for the most amazing ceremony and perfect day!  We are so grateful that we found you to perform our wedding, you were so much more than an officiant.  Your genuine love, spirit, and energy were infectious and will never be forgotten.  We thank you and hope to see you again in St. John (or Vermont).”
With Love,
Dayna and Jennifer Silpe-Katz

The 21 Best Caribbean Islands to Visit in 2021

St John With almost two-thirds of the island covered in national park, St John is one of the Caribbean’s ultimate nature retreats. But it’s the people, the community here that really draw you in — from floating taco bars to the funky, playful soul of Coral Bay. And while there are some lovely small hotels, the island’s villas have never been more popular.

TripAdvisor lists St. John as a top honeymoon destination

The highly influential TripAdvisor travel review site listed has listed St. John as one of the “15 Best Honeymoon Destinations in the United States”, according to the territory’s Department of Tourism.

The 15 destinations were chosen by an algorithm that analyzed all of the property reviews on TripAdvisor Rentals to select the honeymoon destinations that have the highest-rated rental accommodations, according to D.O.T. St. John, in particular, was praised for its “world-class beaches, unspoiled forest, and blissful solitude”. An added incentive for U.S. citizens is the fact they do not need a passport to visit the USVI. Also, with $1,600 in duty-free allowances for U.S. residents, visitors and honeymooners can enjoy some extra shopping.

Anne Marie was extremely responsive and even answered her phone on Easter when we originally inquired! She also made a last second change when we decided we wanted to get married in Peter Bay at the house we rented instead of at the beach.
