Kayt, I don?t even know where to begin in thanking you from the bottom of my heart for all of your expertise, knowledge and patience in helping Hayden and I plan what our friends and family members have dubbed ?the best wedding, ever?!!
We often say we had the A-team of weddings for our day, and that was all thanks to you and your team at Awesome Caribbean Weddings! From all the way over here in Houston, it was no mere feat trying to stage a wedding in a place where you are not familiarized, but with you by our side, it was a breeze and we could not have hoped for a more amazing team! Not being in St Lucia never felt like an issue, and I always came away from our emails and phone calls feeling incredibly excited about what we had in the works.
From beginning to end, you took meticulous care of each and every detail. Most importantly, when we had something unexpected ?pop up? at the most inopportune time, you were there to take care of it quickly and effectively. A bride and groom could not ask for anything more.
Everything flowed so smoothly and you made sure that we had a wonderful evening as we danced the night away to DJ Martin?s splendid selections.
Our day was simply beautiful and you having the presence of mind to include some sand from St Lucia in the sand ceremony kit was that little extra touch that will forever warm our hearts as we relive the day with each frame photographer Mikael Lambert captured.
We would highly recommend the team at Awesome Caribbean Weddings to any couple planning their wedding. With Kayt?s help, our wedding was the smoothly-run success we dreamt it could be!

Bill and I have always wanted to be married on a beach. We first visited St. Lucia a cruise and quickly decided that it was the perfect island for a destination wedding.
We compared the different wedding coordinators that were online at stlucia.org and quickly decided that Awesome Caribbean Weddings (ACW) had the most personal touches and attention.
We could not have been more correct! From the very beginning Kayt was helpful and thoughtful providing lots of options but never overwhelmed us. I can't express how grateful we are to have had Kayt as a coordinator! She kept all the details organized and her suggestions were greatly appreciated. From the moment we began planning we were kept abreast of goings on, such as our chosen reception site being sold and a new patio being built at a different restaurant. We followed her suggestions and were blown away with the results! Kayt made sure that we had everything we needed and were prepared to get married.
We knew that she was planning to meet us at our resort, but expected to be carted to and from a lawyer's office. To our very welcomed surprise we never had to leave our big, comfortable chairs and the lawyer came to the hotel to see us!! Kayt took care of everything so we could enjoy our time in paradise. No detail was left out from extra flowers for my hair to an emergency tent when rain threatened the skies. I have rarely been so well taken care of!
Our families were not so keen on the idea of using a coordinator outside of a resort and kept asking why we wouldn't. Initially we looked into the resort weddings but they were all very similar and didn't allow us to make any decisions as to decorations or flowers and did not offer the choice of a private setting. Neither of us liked the idea of being on a public beach and having strangers gawk at us. We were able to be married on a private beach and go to a resort where everything revolved around us and it could not have been more perfect! Both of our parents are still raving about the wedding and what a smart choice to use ACW. The beach was beautiful and private and the restaurant Jacques was equally as private and the best food we had while on the island! The whole experience was so amazing that any expectations we had pale in comparison to what we actually received.
Everyone who works for or with ACW could not have been more pleasant and professional. Mikael was so nice and took so many beautiful pictures. I'm not sure how he did it but you can actually feel what it was like to be there that day just by looking at the pictures! His timing is impeccable and was able to capture the joy on all of our faces!
Our videographer, did a phenomenal job at creating our video and we were surprised at how quickly he works. The video opens with scenes from St. Lucia and the whole video is set to music we used at our wedding and closes with our family members wishing us well and offering advice. The first time my family watched it we all cried it was so beautiful.
Awesome Caribbean Weddings made our beautiful day possible. We are laid-back, fun-loving people and Kayt, Fenella, Mikael, and Chris meshed so well with the whole family that our whole family is still telling anyone who will listen how perfect the day was. If anyone is entertaining the though of a destination wedding they need to visit St. Lucia and contact Awesome Caribbean Weddings immediately.

After doing some research about getting married abroad we narrowed it down to Awesome Caribbean Weddings, purely down to the wonderful feedback and amazing pictures! Michele has been an angel from the start, so reassuring and always available to help. St Lucia already had a personal meaning to me (not that I'd been!) and everyone I spoke to said it was one of the most beautiful islands they'd ever seen.
After over a year of back and forth emails between myself and Michele, the wedding party and I were finally on the plane! And honestly the whole experience couldn't have gone any more perfect, it was almost unbelievable! Meeting with Michele to get the final touches done and the paperwork signed made me feel even more relaxed.
The actual day itself came and went so quickly that it made me even more grateful for Dani (the photographer). She captured every detail of the service so that we could relive it as often as we wanted! Michele had done everything and more as to how I'd described it, the d?cor and the cake were beyond perfection ? it was as if she had read my mind/dream! I was extremely nervous about getting married and Awesome Caribbean Weddings made my day so remarkable that I would quite happily do it again ? obviously with the same man!
When we saw the beach where we were married a few days later it was almost unrecognisable! It makes you even more amazed at what a wonderful job Michele and the team do. There were children playing, toys scattered and picnics, whereas a few days before it was perfectly raked, quiet and decorated with shells and petals ? it's almost as though you were on your own private island!
Nothing was too much trouble and I think how relaxed and happy I was shone through in our wedding photos ? I'm not always comfortable with smiling/having my picture taken but I literally couldn't stop! I was happy to balance in the rock pools and climb the ruins to get our once-in-a-lifetime pictures.
Thank you all again for what I'm sure will be the happiest and most perfect day of our lives. I can 100% say that we will back to renew our vows in the near future and we will definitely be arranging it with Awesome Caribbean Weddings!

I first 'spoke' to Michele from Awesome Caribbean Weddings by email 8 months before our big day. From that first contact I was reassured that we had made the right choice in choosing a wedding planner to create a personal wedding, rather than choose an off-the-shelf hotel package or try to do everything ourselves. Michele's answer was prompt and professional with a personal feel.
The next eight months were typified by almost weekly contact with Michele: we asked daft questions and received sensible replies; we changed our minds then we changed them back again; we added extra guests; we changed the musicians; and we often took a long time to make decisions. Michele took all of this in her stride and managed the whole event seamlessly. We met her on the day after we arrived on the island and made a few changes there and then! (I think she'd have been disappointed if we didn't)
Michele is well connected on the island and managed to get our last-minute requests sorted even though it was the middle of a major sporting event and the island's resources were stretched to the limit.
The mother-of?the-bride saw a procession of 7 beach weddings on her first day at one of the large resorts. None of them seemed to be 'special' they were churned out with the same taped music and the same standard photographs. This couldn't be further from our experience with Awesome Weddings. We were never made to feel like 'just another couple'. At all times, in the UK and in St Lucia, I felt that we were the most important wedding that Michele was planning and we had her full attention
Our family and friends were scattered in different hotels along the west coast of St Lucia. This wasn't a problem for the Awesome team. The timings were well planned and everybody was picked up in nice cars and delivered to the cliff top on time. The (beautiful) flowers were already at the venue along with lots of cold water. Michele 'stage-managed' the arrival of the bride so that the groom didn't see her until she reached the top of the 'Aisle' and the music was flawlessly timed.
The location that we had chosen from photographs was amazing ? even better than we had imagined. Michele described it to us and we had managed to find it a few days before the wedding. It was naturally beautiful, quiet (apart from the crash of the waves) and secluded and there was no evidence that a wedding had ever taken place there. So imagine our delight on the day when the site made even prettier by the decorations.
The ceremony was perfect. Mr Prudent, the Marriage Officer, has a charming personality and is a special character. He made sure that we focussed only on each other during the ceremony and gave real meaning to the standard wording. He also blended our own ceremony elements in seamlessly.
So thanks to Michele and the Awesome team. Thanks for the planning, the nerve calming, the knowing of fabulous people, and the maps! Thanks for recognising what we would be worrying about and taking time out of Cricket to organise last-minute extras. Thanks for knowing that having a plan B, and C was the surest way to avoid having to use them and thank you for organising the most perfect day imaginable. We wish we could live it over and over again and we wouldn't change a single thing.

Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!! I just can't thank ACW enough for all of the hard work you all put into our wedding! Kayt, you are the BEST!!!! From the moment I contacted you, I knew you would create the perfect wedding day for us! The speedy responses, great ideas and most of all your willingness to help with EVERY detail really made our day all the more special! There was nothing I asked for that I was ever told you could not do!
I can't stress enough how very many other planners told me "no" to so many things I had questions on. Kayt never once said no!!! She made everything happen, no matter how silly the request. From the extra decorations, finding us a private location, and even the mini champagne bottles, AWC did everything!!! The steel pan drum player even learned a song just for us, THANK YOU!!!!
Everyone on staff that we met was nice, helpful and always had a smile on their faces! This team really knows how to handle ANYTHING that comes up.
We knew from all of the pictures on your website that you did a great job, however once we arrived; we realized you had truly created the wedding of our dreams! Our guests have all told us it was the "Best Wedding EVER". We have all agreed that we will be back to St. Lucia to renew our vows and we WILL be hiring ACW. There simply is no other way to have a wedding!

If you want the wedding of your dreams with no stress, use Awesome Wedding Caribbean. We wanted to be married on a boat and Michelle was the only wedding planner who not only responded to our first email within 24 hours but was the only one who offered us a choice of boats! It can seem quite daunting handing over the planning of your wedding to a complete stranger but by the day of our wedding, Michelle felt like a best friend. I never worried once that the day would not go exactly as we planned. We used everyone Michelle recommended - photographer (wow! amazing photos), makeup artist(an absolute sweetheart), hairdresser (had us in fits of giggles while we got ready) and the evening restaurant (just perfect). Michelle can also organise activities and tours on St Lucia - they are much better and more personal than the hotel organised ones.
I would also add that we were a small group of 6 but did not feel we were treated any differently than a group of 60. Every care and attention to detail was taken with our day - right down to coordinating floral displays to decorate the catamaran, the traditonal coconut shell for the rings and even a bit of St Lucian tradition when we did the cake cutting (you have to feed each other cake - it's lucky!)
I still smile to think that a late night tentative email to Michelle resulted in a wedding that was better than we could ever have hoped for.
You will have the day of your dreams - good luck!

We got married in St Lucia on 2nd July 2012. We had been in touch with our wedding planner from March 2011. The planning of the wedding was so relaxed and easy - the way it should be! We were given all the information we could possibly need and everyone of our silly questions was answered within 24 hours! All the planning was done via email! We decided to get married on Pigeon Island, a secluded beach north of the island. The wedding planner helped make this beach look absolutely amazing! We had white wooden chairs, with chiffon runners down the aisle, we had a farbic draped canopy and everywhere was decorated with the most beautiful flowers and petals. All the legal side was done at our hotel, in about one hour then we just got to enjoy our holiday till the big day. At not point did we go visit our venues as we weer so confident that it would be perfect - we just had a feeling!! We had a make-up artist and hairdresser come to the hotel too and they were amazing! The transport was fantastic too, we had the convertible for the groom and best man. Our wedding planner took care of the bouquets, the button holes, the corsages, she ushered the guests to their seats, gave them water then champagne, organised the steel pan band (they even learnt a song for us), she played our requested music during the ceremony (and meals), organised a horse for the photographs and made sure everyone knew what they were doing. The Reception took place at Jacques, a waterfront restaurant at the harbour. The decorations here again were breath taking. The food was amazing, the staff were all very friendly and we even had limbo dancers and fire eaters for entertainment. Looking back our Wedding was everything it was supposed to be, a couple in love and family and friends that supported them and wanted to share the day with them. We were so happy organising it and we were never stressed or burdened with details. Perfection is the only word. Awesome Caribbean Weddings is the way to do it, St Lucia is a beautiful island and ACW are amazing!!

As soon as we started talking about our wedding we knew we wanted a beach ceremony- we just had no idea where!! We looked through hundreds of hotels worldwide that offered wedding packages- then we can across Awesome Caribbean Weddings. They offered something entirely different, totally personalised with glowing reviews!!
From the first email we got from Michele we knew we had found it! We had sent some very sketchy ideas in an inquiry and Michele's reply actually made it seem like it could be a reality. We quickly realised our search was over so continued to bombard her with ideas and questions. Every time we got a wonderfully detailed response the next day.
Together our ideas developed into the most amazing wedding! Our dreams of a ceremony on a tropical beach with a beach BBQ reception were made possible by the wonderful Michele. She talked us through every possible detail of the day, giving us lots of options and guidance so that we got exactly what we wanted, but without breaking the bank.
The most amazing thing Michele and her fantastic florist managed to do was to organise my favorite flowers- Sunflowers!! Obviously not a typical Caribbean flower, they were imported and were incorporated into our isle blocker, canopy, bouquets and even table decorations, floating in glass bowls with candles. They looked stunning!! We know it cant have been easy to organise, but we are so grateful!
We also asked for one of the layers of our wedding cake to be gluten free. It is so hard to get a nice gluten free cake, but the baker is a miracle worker, it was incredible!! Again we had asked for something unusual, and again everything was done to accommodate us! Amazing!
We finally got to meet Michele when we arrived in St Lucia 3 days before our wedding. It was a very unusual situation to have been speaking via email for 18 months and to have never even heard her voice. Michele has this incredible ability to set your mind at rest (which is exactly what you need in a wedding planner) and is so professional, so it never mattered.
We were so happy to finally meet her, just as lovely in person as we had thought! I had a small suitcase crammed full of bits and bobs we had brought for the day- and she was so patient with us! We talked through every detail of the day- from where we needed to stand and what we had to say, to how the table would be laid. We felt totally at ease and so could really relax and enjoy the few days before our wedding. Michele's fantastic advise continued right up to the last minute- the weather was quite unpredictable and it was possible it would rain so we were advised to get a tent for the dinner tables to go under. We were initially reluctant as we really wanted dinner under the stars but it actually turned out to be a great idea. Thankfully we didn't need it for rain, but it gave a really cozy feeling and it had been decorated beautifully!
The day itself went without a hitch as we knew it would! We had visualised everything about our day, but it was even more beautiful thank we ever imagined! This was totally down to Michele and we just cant thank her enough! Throughout the day she seemed to be a wonderful organisational fairy that spread an air of calm and beautiful things!!! She was even able to accommodate a wedding crasher!!
There aren't enough words to thank the florist, baker, photographer, cooks, waitresses and everyone else who contributed to our wedding- especially Michele! We truly got the wedding of our dreams, our guests cant stop talking about it and we are just so grateful!! We cant recommend ACW to everyone enough!! I'm already missing my emails with Michele- maybe we should start planning to renew our vows!!
Thank you so much for everything,
Max and Tash
