Tiwana Ritchie visited St. Croix for the first time on her honeymoon in June 2014. She and her husband will have been here five times come this December, and they dream of calling St. Croix “home”.

Her photo received 661 votes!

We Love St. Croix, Virgin Islands

“The colors of the water are just as breathtaking as the atmosphere and the amazing people of St. Croix!”

Tiwana will probably snap more favorite photos while using her prize, a sunset sail with Lyric Sails!


Kreshana Anderson lives in Illinois, but she and her husband, Clay, visit St. Croix as often as they can. They fell in love with the island the first time they visited and decided it was the perfect place to say, “I do,” which they did on April 15, 2016, at the Renaissance St. Croix Carambola Beach Resort & Spa.

I married my best friend in St. Croix.

“Being able to marry my best friend with the beautiful island as the backdrop is one of the many reasons why I love St. Croix. The island will always be near and dear to my heart for this reason.”

We hope you get to visit St. Croix again soon to use your gift certificate to Zion Modern Kitchen!

Sunset at Cane Bay, St. Croix

“The photo wasn’t planned at all. I had just arrived at Cane Bay and when I walked out towards the beach I saw how beautiful the sun, the water, and the palm trees all were. I tried to create a photo that combined all three. I was happy with how it turned out.”

We bet you are, Jay, especially since it resulted in a gift certificate to Un Amore!
