Antigua, West Indies – June is the “Month of Romance” in Antigua – also known as the Heart of the Caribbean – and one starry-eyed couple from Atlanta exchanged their wedding vows with a luxurious celebrity destination wedding held among the beautiful woodlands and natural white-sand Caribbean beaches at The Inn of English Harbour. Adrienne Scales and Myreon Smith won the exclusive wedding package as part of a sweepstakes sponsored by the Ministry of Tourism and other key industry stakeholders.

Surrounded by colonial charm made even more beguiling by a recent $1.5 million renovation, the Inn at English Harbour features beautiful gardens, an open terrace with stunning views over English Harbour, a superb sandy white beach and smiling, exceptional service.
