Coral Springs, Fla. (PRWEB) June 30, 2015 - Cruise Planners, an American Express Travel Representative, recently enhanced its Sea of Love destination wedding program – with completely packaged weddings and vow renewals designed for all couples. This initiative enhances the company’s already growing wedding business, which has seen a spike during the past few years.
“We want to create memorable celebration ceremonies for all types of love and traditions,” said Vicky Garcia, COO and co-owner of Cruise Planners, an American Express Travel Representative. “Our professional travel agents coordinate all travel and works closely with wedding experts who coordinate all the wedding details – to make it easy for couples to celebrate their love with their own style.”
With Cruise Planners’ Sea of Love wedding packages, there are multiple tiers of ceremonies, each designed to create unique and customizable shore side destination events for all couples. From beachside nuptials, to domestic weddings to engagement parties and even vow renewals – the wedding team at Cruise Planners can create the event of a lifetime.
Each couple is unique and the Cruise Planners’ Sea of Love packages are designed for all types of love, wishes, cultures and traditions. Also, there is a wide selection of enhancements to further celebrate each couple’s personality such as professional photography, bridal upgrades and a variety of reception options.
“We wanted to re-announce our wedding packages on the heels of the June 26th ruling by the Supreme Court of the United States allowing same-sex couples the right to marry,” Garcia said. “We will happily work with any couple looking to tying the knot and look forward to the surge in opportunities from more weddings, celebrations, wedding services and honeymoons.”
The ruling creates an opportunity for wedding planners, travel agents and the entire wedding business community to reach out to a blossoming market as the LGBT traveler represents $200 billion in domestic and global travel revenue according to the World Travel and Tourism Council.
