Tropical Weddings

I belong to the World Christianship Ministries and am registered with the superior court of the United States Virgin Islands as an ordained minister. Sailing the Caribbean for over thirty years has endeared me to the islands.

I have performed many different style weddings and work with couples to customize their plans. Ceremonies have been conducted on beautiful beaches, remote uninhabited islands, at various resorts and villas, and aboard my beautiful sailing vessel Wayward Sailor. I can arrange flowers and photography. Champagne and hors d'oeuvres are included.

I also offer newlywed sunset sails following the ceremony. All sails include champagne and beverages, wedding cake, and hors d' oeuvres. The sails are very peaceful, private, and memorable. Here are some examples of ceremonies I have used in the past. Modification of these vows and custom vows are welcome. If possible, I meet all the couples prior to the wedding to review the custom ceremony.
The price for a custom ceremony is $350. Prices vary for additional services, please see pricing and services. You may contact me when you are ready to start planning your island wedding.
