Some people love the canals of Venice, others cry for the dramatic cliffs on the Amalfi Coast. But when it comes to Italy, for us there’s no place more beautiful, diverse and perfect for a gathering than Tuscany. The rural triangle between Florence, Pisa and Rome is home to gorgeous acres of farmland, medieval-era hilltop towns laced

We love Riviera Maya for destination weddings. It’s easy to get to, and has loads of hotels that work as wedding locales or honeymoon destinations. One of the most elegant is Banyan Tree Mayakoba, just north of Playa del Carmen. This summer they debuted their newest wedding venue, the chapel at El Pueblito. The plaza is designed

But I usually travel solo (to cover more ground), and certainly don’t celebrate like a wedding guest when I’m working! So when I got the invitation from my friend JoAnn Gregoli of Elegant Occasions (who also happens to be one of the country’s

We love Southern California for destination weddings; it’s sunny, accessible and home to a slew of amazing venues and vendors. We headed out earlier this summer to scout hotels for USA TODAY Travel, we found it hard to narrow it down to just 10 — but we managed. From an historic inn in Palm Springs built by

Los Cabos, Mexico is one of our favorite places for destination weddings, due in no small part to the amazing five-star hotels there. But let’s face it; not everyone can afford five-star, and even if they can, not everyone wants to ask guests to pony up that much. Enter Hacienda Encantada, a 150-room, all-inclusive resort that’s a sweet blend of plush and convenience. It’s still

We love honeymoons, obvs; it’s in our name. But we also love destination weddings — helping clients with everything from choosing the right resort to connecting with the perfect planner for their taste and budget. We wrap it up by negotiating room rates and extras, and then manage the guest travel from start to finish, keeping the experience as stress-free as possible for

Photographer Donna von Bruening recently traveled to one of our favorite places: San Miguel de Allende, Mexico. Set in the highlands 170 miles north of Mexico City, SMA is an artist’s haven, with cobblestone streets and marble-fronted buildings dating back to the 1700s.

With the dollar on the upswing against the Euro, there’s no better time to have a destination wedding abroad. We love the Greek Isles, so when wedding planner Kasey Conyers of Bliss Event Design in Columbus, Ohio told us about her visit to the tiny Greek isle of Amorgos, we wanted to hear more! Here’s her story, along with

On this freezing week, we’re daydreaming about our recent stay at Caribbean Club, on Grand Cayman. Friends had been raving to us about this boutique hotel for years, so we couldn’t miss up the chance to stay there ourselves earlier this winter. Its small size and great service make it ideal for a destination wedding. In
