Destination Paris

Lately I’ve been thinking a lot about Paris, and since it was forever ago that we last did a destination Paris post {actually almost 2 years to be exact} I figured we were well overdue. Not only is it one of my favorite cities but I think it’s also one of the romantic ones out there. With the blend of architecture, delicious food, fashion, and culture, Paris is a perfect place for a destination wedding. Whether you bring a small group or just the two of you, it can always work! Happy Friday!!

Destination Cinque Terre

On a scale of 1 to 10 I’m at about an 11 of wanting to go back to Cinque Terre. And for a wedding? Well not only is it romantic, on the water, and Italian but it also has that true old world charm that most places lack. There are five tiny towns to pick from, each scattered intermittently along the long coastline and each has a little something different to offer. One the beach, one the shops, and others just the scenery. But all are perfect for a destination affair… or maybe even your honeymoon!

Back to {Old World} Mexico

I always find myself back in Mexico on the blog front, but it’s only because there is so much to do with such a wonderful destination for weddings! You can go beachy, traditional, crazy, or what I’ve try to create… old world Mexico! I’m thinking classic and elegant, cathedrals, intricate fashion choices and lots of glam… my vision:

Destination Hong Kong

Happy Monday! Heading to Hong Kong today for some wedding inspiration, or just some travel inspiration! When I think of Hong Kong, aside from the humidity, harbor and big businesses I think about bright colors, fashion, and the city life. So I wanted to combine these ideas for a destination inspired post; or just a travel post {honeymoon anyone}? If you’re like me over in the Western hemisphere, HK may not be the perfect place for a destination wedding but it is the perfect stopover for a honeymoon to say Bali or Phuket? I’ll take the next flight please!

Glimpses of Santa Ynez

Destinations are always my favorite types of weddings to look at, write about and all that other pretty stuff, especially when I’ve been to the destination and can envision a wedding right there. So today, you can probably imagine how giddy I was about two of my favorite things {wine & California}. Coming from the east coast, I can’t imagine anything much better than a little wedding right in the heart of the Santa Ynez valley. Never heard of it? Well, it may not be California’s most well known wine region {think Napa & Sonoma} but it sure is wonderful. Located northwest of Santa Barbara, this little region is far less commercial than it’s northern brother but about 100 times cozier and more intimate which makes for the perfect backdrop for a destination wedding. Personally, I’m thinking a rustic theme, an outdoor celebration, loads of wine, and maybe even a stop at the Clairmont Lavender Farm {my absolute favorite part of the region} – and seriously, who doesn’t want to incorporate lavender into their wedding day??
