ORANJESTAD, Aruba, Aug. 22, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Following the overwhelming success of the inaugural vow renewal ceremony held in 2017, Aruba touted hundreds of amorous lovebirds from around the world on the panoramic, powdery-white sands of Aruba's world-famous Eagle Beach, on Wednesday, Aug. 22, 2018. A global event, couples traveled to the romantic island from Germany, Italy, Brazil and all over the United States, eager to renew their I Do's at sunset. More than 500 guests gathered for the iconic celebration, solidifying Aruba as the primary Caribbean destination to say "I Do" times two. A historical milestone for the One happy island, the ceremony provided newlyweds and spouses with the opportunity to participate in the Caribbean's largest vow renewal ceremony for the second year in a row, exclusively in Aruba.

"As one of the most romantic islands in the world, Aruba continues to attract an increasing number of lovebirds to our beloved destination. With countless award-winning beaches to choose from, Aruba is a staple landmark for visitors traveling to the Caribbean," said Ronella Tjin Asjoe-Croes, CEO of Aruba Tourism Authority (ATA). "The energy was palpable and truly magnetic as we witnessed hundreds of couples, young and old, publicly renew their commitment to one another in paradise. We wish each of our guests an endless supply of happiness and lifetime of love and look forward to welcoming them back to our One happy island."

Among the 500+ participants were travel influencers and celebrity couples – including Lydia and Doug McLaughlin, famously known from Bravo TV's "The Real Housewives of Orange County" and Ashley and J.P. Rosenbaum from season seven of "The Bachelorette."

"There's nowhere else we'd rather 'renew our I Do's' than in Aruba, it's absolutely breathtaking," said Ashley Rosenbaum. "We're overjoyed to have shared this experience with the company of our children and know this moment in time is one we'll treasure for the rest of our lives. The One happy island is truly magical."

The enchanting evening displayed twinkling lights, tropical d├ęcor and chic ambiance, inspired by real destination weddings in Aruba, and featured elegant white linen with pops of vibrant Caribbean colors. Couples relished in the opportunity to celebrate their love on the world's No. 4 beach – while enjoying champagne, hors d'oeuvres, local music and Carnival-like festivities.
