Excitement was in the air from the get go - I flew in with Preston [and it was fun to be with him as strangers approached him for a photo or just to express their admiration for his fabulous work!] and we met up with Sylvia Weinstock and her husband Ben upon arrival. Despite some raindrops here and there everyone was ready to party! Among the celebs and media, Kimora Lee Simmons and her boyfriend Djimon Honsou were there as were Maria Menounos covering the event for Access Hollywood, Teri Polo from "Meet the Fockers," Brooke Burke and David Chrevat, Rumer Willis and more. Shaggy and Sean Paul performed two of the nights while DJ Splyce spinned tunes the last night to a spectacular fireworks display on the beach!
We hosted a bridal media breakfast to unveil a cutting edge new honeymoon and wedding brochure depicting the brand new look + feel of Sandals and share many of the recent successes achieved in continuing to raise the bar by being innovators in the market.
It was so great to spend 4 days with old friends Carley Roney and David Liu of TheKnot, Antonia Van der Meer editor in chief of Modern Bride and Elegant Bride and her husband Peter, Diane Forden editor-in-chief of Bridal Guide, Sherri Eisenberg Travel Editor of Brides Magazine, Holli and Robert Ehrlich of Wedding Podcast Network and also make some new friends along the way!
I will share some more pics as I get them but it was a great weekend at a beautiful new resort in an idyllic Caribbean setting!
