Capture Your Dream Wedding in Paradise


Thank You So Much For Stopping By

Here at Irie Matrimony, we pride ourselves in making each wedding unique to the couple planning. We put an effort into each wedding that we would our own weddings. Irie is a word derived from Jamaica, which roughly translates to “alright.” It means that you are content and happy with life and your surroundings. You’ll often find people in the Caribbean saying “Everything Irie!” to one another. This is exactly how I feel when doing what I love best—planning weddings. I’m excited about the possibility of planning your St. Thomas wedding.

A little about me...

Meet Laysha Powers West

I’m a 30-something originally a Georgia girl, turned Island girl. I simply love planning weddings in the Caribbean. The beautiful people make for the perfect medium for the perfect canvas, the gorgeous surroundings of the Tropics.

“We can’t thank you enough for making our dream wedding come true. You went above and beyond to take the stress out of the day and made our special day run smoothly. It was the most perfect day and we wouldn’t have changed anything about it. It was the wedding of a lifetime and we’ll cherish the memories forever.”

What people have to say

“Laysha, their wedding planner, is amazing and goes above and beyond. I had never been to St. Thomas before so throughout the year of long distance planning we had together, she was my eyes, ears, taste buds, everything for me! Laysha had some great choices of recommendations for vendors. Any requests I had, Laysha made it happen. She was awesome at communicating with the vendors for me and keeping everything organized, kept me up to-to-date, and was very super-fast at responding to any questions/comments I had.”
