Half Moon Bay

Hotel Feature |

If you follow along on Instagram, you know that I just returned from a pretty amazing trip to Half Moon Bay for Thanksgiving.  We wanted to get away for a few days, and didn’t want to travel too far.  My boyfriend Dave had stayed at The Ritz Carlton Half Moon Bay a few years ago for a work trip and loved it, so we decided that would be the perfect place to spend Thanksgiving.  And it most certainly was.  I mean, this was the view from our room!

The coastline felt like Ireland with the beautiful green grass and cliffs over the ocean!  There was even a bagpiper at sunset every evening.  Walking along the coast every morning was a definite highlight of the trip.

One day we drove to the local redwood forest to go hiking which was so, so beautiful. Then we drove down to Thomas Fogarty Winery for fabulous wine tasting. Bonus- guests of the Ritz Carlton receive complimentary wine tasting here!

We sure did eat good in Half Moon Bay.  Some of our favorites were Sam’s Chowder House for beautiful views and awesome clam chowder, It’s Italia for delicious thin crust pizza, and Cetrella for a yummy dinner with live music.  We also loved the firepits at the Ritz Carlton for wine and s’mores!

This would be a perfect place to stay for a honeymoon with other stops along the California coast.  And even better- clients of Ever After Honeymoons receive breakfast daily and an $85 spa credit!  Contact us to help with your visit!

Bon Voyage!

It’s a great idea to plan a trip to Vermont in Autumn. This timeless tradition offers you colorful sights by bikes, boats or hikes. I’d love to send you off to soak in red, green, orange and yellow.

New York City

Destination Spotlight |

I recently returned from the most amazing week in New York City!  I had a few work meetings, and it was Bridal Week in New York City.  So I convinced Summer from Grey Likes Weddings to come along and off we went!  New York City is one of my very favorite places in the world, and it certainly didn’t disappoint this time around!  After our Southern California heat wave, I loved the amazing fall weather in New York!

We walked, shopped, ate, and drank our way through the city!  A few favorite spots were drinks at Middle Branch, Employees Only, and Death & Co.  And favorite meals were at Pastis, Beauty & Essex, Buvette, Casellula, and brunch at The Morning Standard.  The UrbanDaddy app steered us to all of the great spots!

It was really fun to attend a couple fashion shows during Bridal Week!  I went to the Amsale and Reem Acra shows, and saw some unbelievably gorgeous gowns!

I also attended really fun parties for Lover.ly, Martha Stewart Weddings, and The Knot.  I love working in an industry with such amazing people! To see all the action find me on Instagram @eahoneymoons!

Another highlight of the trip was staying at the Soho House.  This is a private members club with a small number of guest rooms.  The location couldn’t be better, right in the heart of the Meatpacking District.  They have an a wonderful restaurant and a rooftop balcony with the most incredible views of the city!  It felt like such a perfect little hideaway.  And I loved walking around the Meatpacking District and the nearby West Village.  So many cute little boutiques and cafes.

The Ranch at Rock Creek

Wishing I was here |

If you follow Leila from Be Inspired PR on Instagram, you saw that she recently vacationed with her husband at The Ranch at Rock Creek in Montana. You can also see their trip on Inspired by This. I loved seeing them glamp it up! Yes, I said glamping and if you haven’t heard of it yet, let us be the first. I am talking about the great outdoors (meaning clay shooting, horseback riding and ranch life) meets ritzy accommodations (meaning luxurious living, fine dining, spa days and bowling). Pack your honeymoon as full as you want at The Ranch – it’s all-inclusive!

I thought I’d share some more from The Ranch at Rock Creek that spans across 10 sqaure-acres and doesn’t fail to impress with it’s rustic luxury.

Also clients of Ever After Honeymoons receive a private tour of the ranch in a Jeep, a complimentary bottle of wine, and a departure gift.

I also think it’s perfect for an anniversary or babymoon trip – yes I do those too! Let’s get in touch.

Relaxing and looking out onto the 600 acres of Canyon Point in Southern Utah at the Amangiri resort.

During the day you can take a hot air balloon trip. The hot air balloons launch directly from Amangiri.  Prepare for spectacular views over Lake Powell, Navajo Mountain, the Vermillion Cliffs and the Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument.

I am obsessed with their resort pool and how it’s perfectly tucked into canyon! The desert views are equally breathtaking at day or night. Loving the fire pits and candles. Makes for plenty of romantic spots to slip away to.
