The Honeymoon Guide


Puerto Vallarta Read More

Thoughts of Mexico usually lead to fun in the sun and lots of tropical beverages. You’ll enjoy all that and more in Puerto Vallarta, which offers couples a romantic escape with a dose of local culture, great food, entertainment and activities galore, all in a lush paradise just 2.5 hours by air from O.C.


Terranea Resort and Spa, Rancho Palos Verdes Read More

It will happen to you too… the quick inhale and, “WOW!” That’s exactly what you’ll do when you see the view at Terranea Resort and Spa – embraced by the Cove and Tide Pools of the Palos Verdes Peninsula. Keep right on gazing as you enjoy the trails with wild life, ocean life, indigenous fl ora and fauna. It seems so far from the OC, yet it’s just a quick cruise up the 405.


Mission Inn, Riverside, Read More

Towering toward the sky with her towers and domes, Mission Inn’s architecture easily pulls focus from the glass and steel high rises dotting downtown Riverside. There is something mystical about California’s Mission Revival Architecture that just says, “welcome!” The celebrated types of Hollywood and Washington have married and honeymooned here, and, after my stay, I felt celebrated too.


Mauna Kea Resort, Hi Read More

The iconic Mauna Kea Beach Hotel, located on the sunny Kojala Coast of Hawaii island, is offering an over-the-top $50,000 Golden Anniversary Package for for royalty in honor of the hotel's 50th anniversary.

Starwood Hotels & Resorts Los Cabos Read More

Brides and grooms looking for a stress-free, affordable, and romantic destination wedding in paradise need look no further than Starwood Hotels & Resorts’ two locations in Los Cabos, Mexico. The secluded cliffside location and stunning contemporary architecture of The Westin Resort & Spa Los Cabos took my breath away.


Renaissance Esmeralda Resort & Spa Read More
Most brides today still seek a “ballroom” experience as part of their big day, but when it comes to a destination wedding at a glamorous resort, being outdoors must be part of the plan. Brides want to turn up the volume and do something unique, so as I arrived at Renaissance Esmeralda Resort and Spa in Indian Wells, I wondered if a big, imposing hotel can do a stylish, personalized wedding. The answer is absolutely. Brides need look no further than the desk of hotel wedding specialist, Nicola Johnson.


Colin Cowie Read More

It’s one of those beautiful scenarios you’ve imagined when fantasizing about your wedding day. Your toes are dusted with sand that’s just as white as your wedding gown. The sparkling Caribbean Ocean paints a glorious backdrop that pops with infinite shades of blue. And your groom realizes that while your ceremony is the most important aspect, his bachelor party had all-inclusive decadence written all over it.


Maui - Maui nõ ka oi Read More
My daughter and I had a mission to find a romantic destination wedding setting and honeymoon location. We needed to look no further than the beautiful island of Maui, Hawaii!


A lovely rainbow arching from the lush green mountains to the sparkling waters of Kaanapali’s pristine North Beach framed our first destination, the recently opened Honua Kai Resort and Spa. Located on 38 oceanfront acres, the resort offers contemporary brides and grooms luxurious facilities, unparalleled evels of service and a commitment to the traditional Hawaiian concept of “malama aina” (caring for the land).


Hawaii's Big Island Read More

The Kohala Coast is a 20-mile stretch of coastal paradise on the island of Hawai`i.

Minutes from the Kona International Airport, the Kohala Coast is home to eight luxury hotels and four master planned resort communities.

Here’s our guide to the best of the best.


Mexico's World Class Mexico Wedding Destinations Read More

Mexico loves a party. The country celebrated the bicentennial of its independence in 2010 and is still reveling in the 100th anniversary of its revolution. A wedding or honeymoon gives us a reason to celebrate at two world-class St. Regis Resorts located in Mexico City and Punta Mita.


Mexico City is the NYC of Latin America – a vibrating business hub full of culture, fabulous food and practically everywhere you turn is interesting architecture, museums full of rare artifacts and gorgeous public gardens and outdoor spaces for people watching.


FIJI A Tropical Paradise Made for Love Read More

Fijians are renowned throughout the world for their warmth and friendliness. And with its beauty, comfort, fun, ease and affordability, Fiji is the ultimate destination for romance.

Oahu: The Heart of Hawaii Read More

The island people dream of…it’s filled with romance from natural beauty and adventure to sophisticated resorts, shopping and nightlife. Romance is found throughout the island of Oahu, known affectionately as “the heart of Hawaii.”


Kauai - The Garden Isle Read More

Arriving on the Island of Kauai, my excitement could not be contained. First stop, the Hyatt Grand Resort and Spa in Koloa! Entering my suite I walked straight to the patio (lanai) to be astounded by the garden and ocean view. Below a swan caught my eye as it floated along with koi in its wake. Walking the property I had to window-shop the boutiques and admire the artwork. Tropical foliage led me on a path past; gardens, ponds and saltwater lagoons, then to my surprise the pool! No typical pool either, more like pools that have waterfalls connecting them and hot tubs scattered around so you feel like it’s your own oasis.


Ahwahnee Hotel in Majestic Yosemite Valley Read More

Only the word “majestic” sums up the beauty and intrigue of Yosemite Valley. No place else in the world does the high peaked granite horizon engulf you in the postcard like Valley, canopied by amazingly giant pines and rushing waterfalls. All four seasons bring their own uniqueness to the
breath taking landscape.


The Riviera Delivers with a Hip Palm Springs Vibe! Read More

The very retro-chic Riviera Palm Springs Hotel and Spa is such a happening spot, I had to see first-hand what today’s hipster and his bride might expect if planning a destination wedding. Sinatra and the Rat Pack, Lucy and Desi and other Hollywood luminaries were once regulars, and you will feel like one of the glitterati here too.


Marriott’s Destination Wedding Oasis in Palm Desert Read More

This resort encompasses perhaps the most stunning acreage in the entire valley, and there is something here for everyone: pools, walking trails, tennis courts, shops, and a dazzling spa all set against a backdrop of two challenging 18-hole golf courses and the Santa Rosa Mountain range. An atmosphere of fun permeates the air here where you can love doing nothing or you can ramp up for the most important day of your life.
