Party In Antigua!

Just back from spending a long weekend in Antigua [well - someone had to do it! *wink!*] for the grand opening of Sandals Grande Antigua's Mediterranean Village Resort. What a weekend filled with the 'who's who' in bridal media, the travel industry and even some celebs!

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!

WOW! What a great time we had in Antigua. It is incredibly valuable to be able to see and experience a resort destination firsthand. We enjoyed being able to spend time with our colleagues in the bridal media. We look forward to sharing our fabulous adventure at this new Sandals resort with our listeners. We hope Robert didn't create too much of a scene kicking and screaming as they tried to get him into the taxi to go to the airport!
