Vacation Express featured on Good Morning America

ATLANTA, Aug. 27, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Earlier today, Vacation Express was featured in two segments on Good Morning America highlighting the first-ever “GMA Ties the Knot with Jessica Mulroney” contest hosted by the tour operator, the popular morning show and Wedding Vacations. Couples from across the country entered the contest, submitting short essays describing their love story and why they deserved to win the grand prize, a destination wedding at Royalton Punta Cana Resort and Casino planned by Jessica Mulroney. Vacation Express donated complimentary flights and coordinated all the travel arrangements for the happy couple and their bridal party.

Millions of viewers tuned in to see the show. The first segment recapped the live on-air reveal when the grand prize winners, Bobbie and Alonzo, were surprised to learn that they had won the destination wedding of their dreams. The pair met four years ago while working together in the military. They fell for one another during a tour of Iraq and started dating when they returned home. The second segment featured exclusive behind the scenes footage from their tropical nuptials at Royalton Punta Cana Resort and Casino, showing the beautiful moments from their big day including their oceanfront “I do’s” and intimate beach reception.
