LGBTQ Destination Weddings in Puerto Rico

My partner, Heather, and I just returned from a wonderful stay at La Concha Resort in San Juan, Puerto Rico. We were excited to check out this resort because one of their employees, Nidymar Boscano, recently became Gay Wedding Institute certified and we knew that San Juan specifically and Puerto Rico, in general, need tourism support. We wanted to give back to an island that we feel is being neglected by our government.  More

A Wedding at the Red Inn

Steven and Richard, who live in Los Angeles, hired us to plan four days of parties in Provincetown, Massachusetts as part of their wedding celebration. The 100 guests joined us from all over the world beginning on Thursday for welcome reception at the Harbor Lounge, followed by a clambake at Crown and Anchor on Friday, and then the wedding itself on Saturday at The Red Inn, and finally a closing brunch at Victor's on Sunday.   More

A Wedding in the Pines

Chris and Jeff live in Manhattan but hired us to plan a three day wedding celebration at one of their favorite places in the world: the Fire Island Pines. Planning a wedding in Fire Island is no easy feat, especially considering that there are no roads and no cars! Every rental item, every guest and every vendor had to come over to the island by ferry or freight. Planning a wedding in the Pines truly requires having a great team and knowing all the right people to call, but is so worth it. The views, nature elements and sense of community are unrivaled.  More

Travel Guide: The W Hotel in Ft Lauderdale, Florida

One of my favorite hotels in Florida is the W Hotel in Fort Lauderdale. I've stayed at this property a number of times but my favorite experience was certainly staying in their WOW Suite (of course!). My two bedroom, two bath suite had an enormous Atlantic-front wrapraround terrace on which I was very tempted to throw a party. The views are absolutely incredible and the terrace was larger than my New York City apartment.   More

Travel Guide: The Breakers in Palm Beach

Travel Guide: A Destination Wedding at the Viceroy Riviera Maya

We just returned from a spectacular stay at the Viceroy Hotel in Riviera Maya. This adults-only resort with just 41 guest villas is private luxurious for couples looking for an exclusive, intimate experience. When you first arrive, there's no traditional hotel lobby. There's a beautiful covered seating area where the concierge greets you and tours you around the property, bringing you to the villa for discreet check-in. Our concierge, Natalia, first brought us to the spa where the shaman performed a Mayan cleansing ritual to welcome us to the jungle where we'd spend the next three days.  More
