Romance Month also saw the hosting of Antigua and Barbuda's Celebrity Destination Wedding with Grammy-Award winner Jeff Redd and Theresa O’Neal tying the knot in Antigua.
The destination also attracted the attention of top romance influencer couples during the year, including The Curly Coppers and Positravelty who chronicled their couple getaway in Antigua and Barbuda, sharing their experience with over 100K followers.
