TestimonialJamie and Scott

Where do I begin? I live in Texas and have dreamed of getting married in St. Thomas. My fiancé and I have waited a long time to get married, so as most couples, wanted everything perfect. I found Pam online. She quickly found her way to being my planner. She replies very quickly to all questions, no matter how small. We Skyped so we could get to know each other and everything fell into place. We settled everything via email. She made it so easy!! She is a local and has so many great ideas and tips on where to go and what to do! Pam and her assistant Heather, made my special day perfect! Pam’s husband, Simon, performed our ceremony. It was just an amazing day! The isle was beautiful, the flowers were perfect, the champagne glasses were a nice touch. Just everything was perfect. We couldn’t be more pleased!

In addition to our wedding, Pam and Heather helped us schedule other activities. We did a safari tour of St. Thomas with Heather’s husband, David. I highly recommend it! He took us to beautiful spots with great picture spots and drinks! They also helped us schedule dinners for my wedding party on both St. John and St. Thomas.

As you can see, with Pam, it is all hands on deck! I just can’t recommend Pam and Heather more! Especially, if you are a nervous bride like me that just prays you arrive on the island and everything is perfect! I can’t believe I ever had a doubt with Pam and Heather by my side. You can’t go wrong with this bunch!

testimonialsTim and Jodi

“I cannot express how much Pam helped from day one when I emailed to ask her a ton of questions about getting married in St. Thomas, USVI. She patiently answered them all and gave us recommendations even before we had officially agreed to contract her as our wedding planner. There was no doubt in my mind that we were going to use her services. Our wedding was last week and we spent an idyllic time in St. Thomas and had the perfect wedding on the beach at Magen’s Bay. Pam was a lovely minister and wonderful wedding planner and our photographer Mike and videographer Oliver were absolutely amazing. We cannot thank Pam enough for what my husband says was the “best day of his life”. Pam made our wedding so special and she also was very flexible to incorporate whatever we wanted for our ceremony. Her 5 star reviews say it all and am so happy we chose her to make our wedding day incredibly special.”

Testimonial St T Beach WeddingLaura and Daniel

“Daniel and I have been together for over 11 years and love to cruise. We did not want to use Carnival to get married because of all the restrictions. We had visited St. Thomas several times and decided to have our big day there while we were in port (with 60 of our friends via Carnival Valor) for the day. I googled and read reviews and found tons of island planners. We decided on Pam with Affairs to Remember/Tropical Weddings VI because of her great communication via email and a la carte pricing. Pam was professional and very helpful in all my planning. Her website was a lifesaver when filling out the courthouse paperwork. She found exactly what I wanted and suggested a few ideas as well. She got me in contact with all the people I would need for my special day and took care of getting our flowers and chairs to us. Pam even brought some petals from her own tree in case I didn’t have enough petals for the toss and aisle. She kept in constant contact with us over the year we were planning. She even let us know when she was going out of town to be unreachable. We are very happy with the way our special day went and with Pam’s services. I would give her 5 stars. She was such a fun person with a vibrant personality. THANK YOU PAM!”

Testimonial for Tropical Weddings VIJulie and Todd

“After being together for 12 years, my husband and I finally made time in our lives to get married and knew that we wanted it to be in the Caribbean somewhere. I also knew that I wanted it to be on May 5, which is my late father’s birthday, who passed away 22 years ago. It was always a special day for me and I wanted to honor him with that and have another great reason to celebrate that date! Before we found Pam online we thought it was going to be impossible to get that accomplished successfully with being so far away. We were going on a cruise and knew we had only one day to pull all this off. After we Skyped with Pam we knew that this lady was going to make this dream happen for us!

She took special care to work with me on all the details and we emailed back and forth for months – I sent her pictures of bouquets I liked/didn’t like, and she was so accommodating to work with – from vows to champagne to transportation. The people in her inner circle were amazing also. Pam and husband Simon were both so friendly and down to earth, and were instrumental in making it a day to remember – from everything to telling us where to stand on that gorgeous beach to, most importantly, reminding me to breathe!

Thanks also to Mike Garcia for making us feel like movie stars that day. Truly a special experience that we wouldn’t do any differently if given a chance. Looking forward to going back one day and renewing our vows with her also… Thank you Pam for all you did for us!!”

Testimonial for a St Thomas WeddingSandy and Odell

“Pam Larsen, Wow – where to start? She is amazing! When my fiancé and I moved to St. Thomas we were beginning a new life and planning a wedding. A daunting task for sure.

From our first meeting, we knew we were good hands. As a tour director, I knew I wanted to plan many of the activities myself; from start to finish Pam helped me plan not only our ceremony and reception, but also a dream vacation for all of our out of town guests. When the happy week came, I was able to have fun while she took care of every detail to ensure our vision was brought to life. She was not only patient, insightful and organized but also bright, bubbly and positive, which made the planning process a lot of fun. Pam has lived on the island for over 37 years, so her trusted vendors were on the job, with all-systems-go for the big day. Over the course of the year we became great friends and now work together to provide wedding and vacation memories for destination weddings in St. Thomas. We could not have pulled off such … An Affair to Remember … without her. Thanks, Pam!”

Virgin Island wedding testimonialBarb and Sam

“I researched wedding planners and locations on St. Thomas for our wedding, and Pam initially had not responded, which turned out to be an error with the email/internet.  I mentioned to the photographer I chose, that she had not responded, which was surprising based on her reviews.  Within a couple hours I received a call, and from then on, things flowed smoothly, and I knew I had chosen the right person. Pam made sure I knew all my options, listened carefully to what we wanted, and offered us ideas, but never any pressure.  She was extremely knowledgeable regarding location options, and helped us choose one that answered our wish list. Her prices were extremely reasonable! Pam was a great communicator, both through email and by phone. She dealt with some issues with the paperwork at the courthouse before we arrived, which allowed things to go smoothly once we arrived. She managed to coordinate everything in a short amount of time, and even though she was away the week before our wedding, she had everything in place, and we had a wonderful, romantic, and stress-free wedding!  I had chosen the colors for my flowers and sent pictures, and I must say, they were even more beautiful than I had hoped for!  People on the beach were commenting on how beautiful and vibrant they were! Pam is honest, straightforward, and trustworthy, and a warm and wonderful person!  The photographer we chose (Mike from Toes in the Sand) worked beautifully together with her, and his wonderful personality really made our day too. (not to mention the fabulous pictures!)  We couldn’t have had a more wonderful day!  I highly recommend!  You won’t be disappointed!”

Testimonials about Pam LarsenSion and Rachel Wedding

“Sion and I planned our entire wedding in St. Thomas from Minnesota and Pam was a huge help every step of the way. We didn’t even meet Pam until the morning of our wedding, and she was warm and wonderful. Our ceremony was memorable and meaningful to us as a couple and we had a blast drinking mimosas and taking pictures after our wedding.

It was a fantastic way to start our life together and I wouldn’t change a thing. Many thanks to Pam for creating a day of a lifetime for my new husband and me!”

Testimonials for a Pam Larsen weddingTina and Wilhelm

“We dreamed of a perfect romantic St. Thomas beach wedding – and you made it all come through. From the first initial mails, weeks before, till the morning where we found ourselves getting married on the most amazing beach on St. Thomas you were the best help ever. Your calm and professional guidance helped us through all steps, all the important decisions, perfect vows, a wonderful bouquet, the most romantic restaurant on the island etc. You and Simon made our wedding day so very speciel and ensured that we will have a memory for a lifetime. Our sincere appreciation and thanks.”

Testimonial and appreciationMark and Kat

“Mark and I would like to thank you from the bottom of our hearts for making our wedding day so perfectly special. Your patience and dedication not only in the weeks before our date, but in the long months of my husband’s deployment meant so much. It must be incredibly difficult to take someone’s vision presented to you through text and quick phone interactions and make it a reality, but you were able to do just that. The appreciation shown for Mark’s military commitment through kind words, and your efforts to procure special pricing through your vendors was so wonderful and helpful in allowing us to have the ceremony of our dreams within our budget, down to every final detail. The extra time you took to sort out the ongoing dilemma of our venue, including you personalized appeal to the COA was reassuring and allowed me to focus on other things. I recommend your services to any military family looking for a St. Thomas wedding escape from the rigors of a life spent on the move, to an amazing island where time stands still!”

Toes in the Sand PhotographyBill and Laura

“A very difficult journey it was to find a wedding planner from thousands of miles away. Pam was very communicative and her reviews as well as her personal attention and quick responses to our emails made me feel at ease.  Pam put together all of the details of the wedding for us and it went off flawlessly. The day was beautiful, the flowers, cake, hand painted glasses and the wedding location were perfect. We will remember Pam and her gracious manner as one of the many wonderful memories of our wedding on St. Thomas USVI. Please feel comfortable having Pam coordinate the most important day in your new life together. You will not be disappointed. Be sure to ask her about her studio and try to arrange a visit to see her and her fellow artists’ work. It will be well worth the trip downtown. If you want professional pictures, ask her about Michael and “Toes in the Sand Photography“. Again, perfect memories in print to last forever. Rest assured that Pam will make your day the most memorable it can possibly be.”

Intimate beach weddingCandace and Justin

“We would like to thank you for making our St. Thomas wedding day simply amazing and one we will never forget. From the very beginning you made me feel completely comfortable and eased any anxiety I may have had about planning our special day. You were prompt to answer any of my questions and you got in contact with the vendors I needed to give me just what I envisioned. The arch was STUNNING and the flowers were exactly what I wanted. Our wedding day was very intimate and even more so the reason why the small details mattered to me. From the bottom of our hearts, thank you for your time and effort into truly making April 29, 2014 the BEST day at the beach!”

A Tropical VI Danish WeddingLene and Martin Wedding

“Martin and I choose to get married by Pam and Simon, because we did not wanted to do it the ordinary way.We had already decided on a cruise in the Caribbean, and in our search we found wedding planner Pam Larsen and minister Simon Larsen. We had often contact with Pam to make our wedding the way we wanted it, and we ended up with a romantic wedding at Lindbergh Bay on St Thomas. We got the day just as we had dreamed of. I walked down a beautiful aisle of palm leaves, shells and danish flags. Simon performed the wedding with our vows, and then we became man and wife. While Pam recorded it with our video camera. And Mike took a lot of photos. Mike Garcia was our photographer; he has an infectious mood, and a lot of ideas for photos. We even got a couple of photos where we by the cruise ship.

Simon Larsen works with Stjernegaard travels and there were a couple of his guests at the beach, they would like to see a beach wedding, and they ended becoming our witness. Pam where a perfect help though our planning progress she gave us advice and ideas. And we got a truly unforgetful day. Pam helped so much, there was an unforeseen problem with our vows, that somehow where lost in cyberspace. But with an internet connection and help from the hotel at the beach and my phone I found your vows and we got married with our own vows.

We would like to thank Pam and Simon for a wonderful day, we’ll never forget.”

Megans Bay Wedding TestimonialJaquelyn and Spencer

“It was so nice to be able to just tell someone what we wanted and not worry about the details. Pam was so good about answering all of our questions, making sure we felt totally comfortable in the days and weeks leading up to our wedding in St. Thomas, and giving us more than we imagined possible. Magens Bay is absolutely beautiful and our photographer, Mike Garcia had such great energy. We can’t imagine getting married any other way and would definitely recommend Pam and St. Thomas to anyone looking for a stress-free experience. Thank you so much for everything you do Pam!”

Tropical Weddings VI testimonialsKate and Geno Wedding

“My husband and I got married in December 2013, and Pam was our wedding officiant. We were so happy we chose her! She made things so easy for us! She was extremely helpful from the start. Pam communicated with me via email numerous times before our big day and made me feel at ease. Pam even picked us up on our wedding day and drove us to our ceremony location.

She was so kind and I was SO happy we had chosen her! After we got married, she offered to be our own personal photographer, so we didn’t have to hire a professional one! She was so wonderful overall, and I would recommend her to anyone.”

Testimonial for a Megans Bay weddingCarol and Daniel Wedding

“Daniel and I want to thank you so much for making our wedding day one of the most memorable, special days of our lives. We were truly amazed at how smoothly everything went – from the chauffeur picking our party of 20 people up at the cruise ship docks and taking us by the courthouse for a quick 5 minute signing of the marriage license to arriving at Magen’s Bay with everything ready and waiting for us there. IT WAS ALL SO PERFECT! I appreciate all of the advice you patiently gave me before our special day.Thank you for helping me decide on Magen’s Bay beach (so gorgeous!) and all of the other details like our vows (which were soooo beautiful and just perfect for us) , champagne, cake, flowers, etc…. I was really nervous about trusting a stranger who was so far away, but our conversations by Skype made me feel like I knew you even before I left Virginia! I never felt you didn’t have time to talk and really felt you wanted to get to know us. When we arrived at Magen’s Bay beach you and our photographer Mike Garcia took charge and that really made us feel relaxed and comfortable. You led such a perfect little ceremony for us, and Mike’s pictures were so, so gorgeous. He is an AMAZING photographer. I cannot say enough about how perfect everything was. If you’d like to use me as a reference for future clients to contact feel free to do so. I would be happy to tell people how great you & Mike Garcia are! Thanks again!”

St Thomas wedding testimonialsCarrie and Daniel Wedding

“We made it home safe and sound and had an absolute wonderful trip. I can not thank you enough for helping make our St Thomas wedding everything that we dreamed of and more. Looking back at the wedding pictures from Toes in the Sand Photography, we are thankful for the rain. It kept everyone off the beach that day and we had our own private wedding ceremony on the beach all by ourselves. It was wonderful. Thank you for calling the salon and calming my nerves. Once I knew that you had everything under control with the weather, I was relaxed and felt much better about the situation.

You and your husband are fabulous people and we couldn’t be more pleased with all that you did….. so thank you for everything!!!”

Virgin Island Wedding TestimonialsDeb and Don wedding

“With sincere gratitude, I’d like to thank you for coordinating and officiating our wedding which left us with wonderful memories of our ceremony on Magens Bay in St. Thomas. Initially, you put me at ease and provided not only patient but wise support and guidance throughout the wedding planning. The details included the site, spectacular flowers, the limo, music, set up on the beach, our sand ceremony, the wonderful photographer. You also gave guided instructions so our wedding was legal and the paperwork properly taken care of ahead of time.

Carefully, and like a friend, you paid attention to detail and made sure that our special wedding day was catered to “our” needs and personal wishes. You succeeded. To our benefit, we had a beautiful wedding ceremony that included our four adult children and one filled with much laughter and fun! Lastly, I can say that your fee was quite reasonable and we got more than we paid for. It is our pleasure to recommend you and your wedding services to any bride and groom who wish to have a memorable, customized, and stress-free wedding in St. Thomas. Thanks for all that you did and we wish you all the best!”

Magical Beach Wedding TestimonialsDoug and Heidi Wedding

“Surreal…magical….are the words to describe our wedding experience at beautiful Magens Bay in St. Thomas! It truly must be one of the world’s most beautiful beaches! Working with Pam Larsen was absolutely amazing! Both she and the photographer, Mike Garcia, made us feel so very important and special like we were the only two people on earth that morning! Pam is most accommodating, personable and affordable. There isn’t a detail that she won’t cover if that is what you want. Whether it is your first time down the aisle or any other number, she can tailor your wedding perfectly to fit your need and your budget. It felt like I’d known her all my life and it was hard to say goodbye when it was over. Mike, the photographer was absolutely wonderful too, the only thing you have to remember is to take a deep breath and be yourself and let him work with you! You will be more than pleased with the results with both of these remarkable people!”

Danish Wedding in the Virgin Islands TestimonialsJannie and Kristian wedding

Pam planned our wedding on The Virgin Islands. We live in Denmark and did not have any ideas about our wedding besides the fact that we wanted to get married on a beach on our St. Thomas vacation. Pam walked us through everything step by step by email and arranged everything perfectly. It was everything we dreamed of and much more. We forgot to bring our own wedding music but Pam was prepared for everything and brought music just in case. It was a romantic wedding on the beach at sunset with her husband, Simon as our minister.

We are definitely coming back in 10 years to renew our vows.”
