News Americas, NEW YORK, NY, Weds. June 9, 2011: A live Caribbean wedding is set for 2:30 p.m. today in the Vanderbilt Hall of Grand Central Terminal in New York City.
Leticia Young and Raymond Mohan are set to exchange vows at the Caribbean Travel & Cultural Fair at 2:30 p.m. today. The event is all part of Caribbean Week in New York from the Caribbean Tourism Organization, which opened on Sunday, June 5th with an interfaith ceremony in Brooklyn.
The bride-to-be is a graduate of the University of Pennsylvania and Mohan is a highly esteemed Caribbean executive chef. He is presently the executive chef of the landmark restaurant – The Coffee Shop – in Union Square, Manhattan and commands a kitchen staff of over 100 people.
The two were selected after a contest that was promoted on https://www.MarryCaribbean.com, Twitter, Facebook, and other social networks. Couples were required to write in about how they met and why the Caribbean was their dream honeymoon destination.
“We both have Caribbean roots and have travelled the region extensively. We are confident that we could promote the region in a passionate and authentic way,” said Young.
The wedding is an annual part of the Caribbean Fair and is promoted and organized by MarryCaribbean.com, the Internet’s most complete listing of Caribbean destination wedding and honeymoon resources, as part of the schedule of activities for Caribbean Week in New York organized by the Caribbean Tourism Organization.
“Love is the fuel that continues to drive the high profile and profitable romance market to the Caribbean.
