Hollywood actor Nicolas Cage gave his new wife ALICE KIM the ultimate treat after their Friday wedding (30JUL04), by whisking her off to New York for a spending spree.

The LEAVING LAS VEGAS star, 40, exchanged nuptials with 20-year-old Kim at a private ceremony on a ranch in northern California, and the following day the newlyweds were spotted enjoying lunch together in San Francisco.

They then headed for a private airstrip where they jetted off to the Big Apple for their honeymoon.

Their union is the third wedding for Cage, 40, who split with his previous wife Lisa Marie Presley after less than four months in 2002. Before that, he was married for six years to actress Patricia Arquette.

First-time wife Kim, a former sushi waitress, met Cage when the actor visited the Los Angeles restaurant where she worked.

They started dating in February (04) and reportedly became engaged after two months.
