On June 6th, 2012, John Gordon André Millard and Tricialouise Gurley tied the knot at New York’s Vanderbilt Hall, Grand Central Station. Millard, from Montreal, Canada, and Gurley, from Baltimore, Maryland, USA, said “I do” during Caribbean Week in June. The two met on the internet in July 2011 and were selected after a contest promoted on www.MarryCaribbean.com, the internet’s most complete listing of Caribbean destination wedding and honeymoon resources, gave them a wedding most couple can only dream of.
New York’s Vanderbilt Hall inside Grand Central Station was the setting for this year’s wedding.
As any wedding Coordinator will tell you, they can only be as good as the vendors selected. Jacqueline Johnson was in charge of selecting the vendors and tapped the best she could find in their categories:
Honeymoon to St. Kitts courtesy of Marriott Hotel/American Airlines. The wedding gown provided by Steve Lang/Mon Cheri The men’s formal wear and accessories by 1888MyTuxes.com/Galleria Favors and Invitations. Wedding Rings by Munalichi bridal & Garvey Lundy Jewelers. The First Anniversary trip – Jamaica/Jewels Dunns River Resort & Spa/Island Routes Catamaran Cruise. Procreation Trip: Lighthouse Bay Resort. Photography by Curacao/Roger Gibbs. The Bridal bouquet/Flowers The British Virgin Islands. The wedding cake designed by St. Kitts. Glasses/plates/forks – Global Bridal Group. The Officiant (Anguilla) was Judge Sam Walker. St.Vincent & The Grenadines/Abena Amory-Powell supplied the music and the hotel stay in New York courtesy Islands of the Bahamas.
….and they lived happily ever after.
According to Jacqueline Johnson this was the first year of full co-operation by every Caribbean Country since the global crisis.
“We’re very encouraged by how things are progressing and I’m so very happy that we were able to make a very special couple as happy as they are. They were lovely to work with and so were all the vendors that contributed to a truly fine affair ,” said Johnson.
Johnson told eWedNewz plans for next year’s wedding are already underway, even though it’s a long way off. Next stop is Chicago next week for Johnson, as she continues her grueling schedule of events to promote the Caribbean and the premier destination for honeymoon couples.
