Real Honeymoon: St. Lucia

I just love sending couples to the Caribbean for their honeymoon! Jesus and Amy recently returned from their honeymoon in St. Lucia and had a wonderful time. They were so sweet to share photos and some details about their honeymoon escape. The newlyweds stayed at the Cap Maison hotel, located on the top of a private ocean-front bluff on the beautiful island of St. Lucia. The hotel and its location are breathtaking, to say the least. What's more, the service provided by the hotel staff is absolutely impeccable. From making dinner reservations to booking island tours and excursions, the reception and concierge take care of everything, ensuring that their guests are able to relax and not worry about a thing. The hotel also sits on a beautiful private beach where guests can lounge at their leisure.

Amazing, right?? Here are a few images and words from Jesus and Amy about their stay:
"Cap Maison was excellent.  We liked that it was small and seemed very private.  Not busy and crowed like Sandals or some of the other resorts we saw.  When on our excursion tours, we drove by some of the other resorts and talked to some of the other couples and we determined that our hotel was probably the best one on the island.   It made us feel pretty good."

There's nothing better than knowing you are staying at the best hotel on an island when on vacation. Not to mention, that's the way it should be when on your honeymoon! I am overjoyed that Amy and Jesus had such a great time! Congratulations again on your marriage! Below are a few other images of the beautiful Cap Maison in St Lucia, enjoy!

A European Getaway Caught on Camera

Earlier this month, I had the opportunity to plan a little European adventure for the wonderful Lindye Galloway and her sweet husband, Winn. Lindye, of Lindye Galloway Events, is a Southern California weddings and events specialist, and I was super excited when she approached me about planning a trip for her and her husband. I was absolutely blown away when Lindye returned, having chronicled their ENTIRE trip on a Flip camera! The two traveled to the Amalfi Coast, Rome, Florence, Paris, and to top it all off, they took a DAY TRIP to London for the Royal Wedding. I was so jealous planning this adventure, I wanted to sneak into their bags and tag along with them! Thankfully, the two did a fantastic job chronicling their trip that I almost felt like I was there. You must see their video...

These two are just so cute and fun and I cannot get enough of their video... aren't they adorable?! And such fun personalities and senses of humor, just the type of people that transform traveling into adventures of a lifetime. It was such a pleasure planning this trip for Lindye and Winn and I am so happy they had such an amazing time!

La Minervetta in Sorrento

I am so excited to share the incredible hotel we stayed at in Sorrento, La Minervetta.  This hotel has been a long time favorite of mine, so I was beyond excited to stay here!  After seeing the pictures I am sure you will see why!

The location of the hotel is perfect.  It is built into the hillside right above the marina, with steps right down to the beach.  Then you can easily walk to the downtown area.

I couldn't get over the incredible details everywhere you looked.  Just look at the living room area!

And the terrace is the perfect place to relax and take in the amazing views!

Or to cool off in the pool.

The best part- every room is different and each has ocean views.

Beautiful right?  And trust me- it is even more incredible in person.  I can't recommend this hotel enough for any couples visiting Sorrento!
