On February 14, 2013, couples joined us in a declaration of love as we celebrated romance, passion, and our sweethearts in a one of a kind tour-de-love with a vow renewal ceremony presented by Aruba, One happy island. The ceremony took place on the iconic glass Red Steps and was broadcast live on the American Eagle Times Square Digital Billboard in the heart of Times Square. It was also streamed live to the world.
We invited couples from all generations and of all types to profess their love. A special invitation was extended to couples whose kisses bridge boundaries, be they religious, political, racial, national or otherwise, as well as couples in wedding attire.
