Island Profiles: Well-Known Resident Launches New Business

Mary Bartolucci

St. John is filled with so many interesting people. I’ve received a lot of emails suggesting that I start to profile some of our residents, and I think that’s a fabulous idea. Today I’m starting with Mary Bartolucci, a 27-year resident who has launched a great new business.

Many of you have likely heard Mary’s name before or perhaps you’ve seen her work. Mary owned the highly successful business Island Style Weddings for 20 years before selling it in 2022. During that time, Mary planned more than 2,000 weddings, and her work has been featured in numerous popular publications including Martha Stewart Weddings, Style Me Pretty, and more.

The weddings Mary created were spectacular from the design and decor to the lighting and layout, and that’s a credit to her vision, personable service, and attention to detail. Mary is now taking those attributes and applying them to her newest business venture – MCB Management.

MCB Management offers complete property management services, including maintenance, housekeeping, pool service, bookings, and more. Prior to living in St. John, Mary spent 17 years working in hotels as a director of sales and marketing. Her background in hotel management and wedding planning is sure to make MCB Management a success.

Mary’s plan is to accept no more than four villas in her portfolio, so each owner and guest can continue to receive her personalized attention. Mary firmly believes in quality over quantity. Some of the services she offers include:

  • Booking coordination
  • Provision management
  • Enhancements to guest experience
  • Guest activities & service options
  • Targeted & collaborative marketing, including refresh and renew (new photos, branded gifts, etc.)

Whether you prioritize attentive guest experiences, efficient booking coordination, or comprehensive marketing strategies, Mary, along with MCB Management, is committed to aligning its services with your goals. Please reach out to Mary at to see how she can best support you. You can also visit her website at

Mary currently manages The Maho Bay House, a stunning four-bedroom villa that overlooks the sparkling waters of Maho Bay on St. John’s North Shore. The Maho Bay House is an absolutely incredible property. Click here to learn more about it.

What a beautiful place to stay!

    I’ve known Mary for over 30 years and have observed her exemplary management style as she founded and grew Island Style Weddings and I’ve had the privilege of working with her on community projects such as the “Bringing Peace to Paradise” festival. In addition to her excellent business skills, she is a woman of integrity and kindness, with an intuitive ability to know the deeper needs of clients, regardless of cultural background or orientation. She has been at the core of many grassroots community projects such as “Llight Up the Night”, the St. John Cancer Fund and “Stop the Volence” Campaign. And she’s warm, positive and very classy! I wish her the best in her new venture. ❤️
