About Us

Congratulations on your engagement! Although we are far apart, having me as your destination wedding advocate will bring things together beautifully!

I founded my award-winning company Dream Island Events in 2008 and built a business focused on personalized attention that set the standard in the Virgin Islands event industry. My refreshing sabbatical and subsequent relaunch as Weddings by Michelle Marquis in 2013 has brought a fresh new vision as well as even more unique inventory for my team of professionals. Recently honored with being the only wedding company is the Caribbean nominated for the prestigious “Art of Being Exceptional” award, we excel at providing you with a seamless, stress free wedding experience.

Born and raised in the wild and wonderful countryside of West Virginia, I have an appreciation of and desire for the outdoors. After settling in the Caribbean over 11 years ago, I felt it was the right time and place to return to what I love – wedding planning! Twenty years of experience and a background in restaurant consulting, catering and interior decorating makes arranging unique, edgy and truly custom estate and resort weddings my specialty. Living in the Virgin Islands for so long has allowed me to cultivate unparalleled relationships with the most amazing talents the Caribbean has to offer. Whether it’s a classic elegant wedding, fun casual wedding, edgy, offbeat, whimsical or cultural wedding you desire, all are within reach with me by your side. Weddings by Michele Marquis also has the inventory and capability to design and execute a truly amazing after party lounge for your wedding reception.

My work has been featured in Wedding Planner Magazine, Worldwide Wedding Guide, Destination Weddings and Honeymoons and Virgin Islands Weddings and Honeymoons for a reason. My attention to details is endless and so are your options. Your dream wedding will become a reality!
