Reinforcing the island’s emerging reputation as a top destination for Caribbean weddings and honeymoons, St. Kitts has been selected as the honeymoon site for the wedding couple who will be married at the Caribbean Fair at Grand Central Station on Wednesday, June 6, 2012.
The public wedding is one of several activities being held as part of the Caribbean Tourism Organization’s annual Caribbean Week in New York, June 4 to 9.
“St. Kitts is extremely pleased to have been chosen as the honeymoon location for this year’s lucky wedding couple,” said Sen. Ricky Skerritt, minister of tourism and international transport, in a written release. “Destination weddings and honeymoons is a niche market that we have been targeting through our various marketing and sales efforts because it is one that we feel is a natural fit with our destination product attributes. We are grateful that our market outreach is having an increased awareness for St. Kitts as a competitive option within this key market segment, and we expect that this New York City event will help us gain further visibility.”
St. Kitts is donating a honeymoon to the lucky couple, John Gordon Andre Millard and Tricialouise Gurley, in celebration of their nuptials that will be part of the Caribbean Week in New York activities for 2012.
As a result of the island’s partnering with American Airlines, the couple will receive two business class tickets to St. Kitts in addition to a four-night stay at the St. Kitts Marriott, provided courtesy of the resort. The St. Kitts Marriott is also providing complimentary spa treatments at the Emerald Mist Spa to the couple.
