Wishing I Was Here…

Currently |

Happy Leap Day! I’m really looking forward to fun wedding industry parties the next couple nights, starting with the Utterly Engaged Leap Year Party tonight!  Then tomorrow is The Cream Event, which will be featuring a number of amazing vendors in the wedding industry.  I am really honored to be included!

As I am rushing around today to get through my mile long to do list, these pictures of the pools at Ubud Hanging Gardens Hotel made me pause.  Just look at that view!  I am constantly blown away by the pictures clients send from their honeymoons in Bali, and am hoping to visit there myself very soon!  Anyone else wishing they were soaking in that pool right now?

Riding Elephants in Chiang Mai

Destination Spotlight |

Prior to going to Thailand, I was most looking forward to getting to ride elephants, and this was definitely a highlight of the trip!  We went to Maetaman Elephant Camp where we rode elephants and then went on a bamboo raft down the river.

There are many places in Chiang Mai where you can ride elephants, but we chose to go here because they have a really long trail and you also go through the river.

On the way back we stopped to see the 3 week old baby elephant with it’s mom!  SO CUTE!!!

After that we took a ride down the river on a bamboo raft.  It was so beautiful and peaceful on the water!

I  highly recommend a day at Maetaman Elephant Camp for anyone visiting Chiang Mai!

Chiang Mai Elephants

Destination Spotlight |

Another highlight of my time in Chiang Mai was the elephants!  We went to Maesa Elephant Camp where we fed elephants bananas and sugar cane and took pictures with them.  Here I am getting lots of love from a few very friendly elephants!

Then it was bath time.  They were so cute all splashing around in the river!

After that was the show where they danced, played soccer, and threw darts.

The best part was watching them paint!  It was so amazing to watch- they were so precise with every stroke!

Here are the finished products!  You could buy the paintings after they were done.  I would definitely recommend a visit to Maesa Elephant Camp to anyone visiting Chiang Mai.  Next up is our day riding elephants!

Seminyak & Ubud, Bali

Real Honeymoon |

Mark & Mindy are foodies who were determined to honeymoon in a place where they could get sand, sun, culture, & wildlife- a honeymoon escape in Bali was just the ticket. The two stayed at Uma Sapna Villas and the Kayana Villas in Seminyak and ended their trip in Ubud at Komaneka at Bisma.

In Seminyak, Mark & Mindy loved the beaches and array of resturants, while in Ubud they indulged in the serenity of the mountains, the art, and the vast opportunities for adventure that lay at their fingertips. The two went river-rafting, elephant trekking, walking in the monkey forest, and even took a cooking class all in Ubud!

Their favorite memory of their trip was picking out art for their new home at a local gallery. A wonderfully knowledgeable guide from the hotel took them to a boutique gallery, away from the tourist hot spots, where they walked around for hours looking at all of the different pieces. What a wonderful souvenir to bring back and have as a daily reminder of such a fabulous vacation!

Hansar Hotel Bangkok

Hotel Feature |

I have so much to share from my amazing trip to Thailand!  First up is the incredible hotel we stayed at in Bangkok. Hansar Hotel was our home for a few nights while in Bangkok.  I loved this hotel! Great location, really modern design, and everyone was incredibly friendly.

My favorite part of the hotel was their infinity pool!  Perfect place to relax after exploring the city for a day.

Plus their suites are perfect for honeymoon couples in Bangkok.  Look at that tub!

I will be posting more about our adventures in Bangkok and Chiang Mai over the next couple weeks, so be sure to check back!
