Win a Honeymoon to Martinique

On the hunt for your perfect honeymoon locale? Looking for a place that is part island paradise and part eclectic European flair? Look no further than the gorgeous island of Martinique. Just a few short hours from Miami, nestled in the Eastern Caribbean sea, Martinique is a perfect honeymoon destination for the couple looking for Caribbean paradise with a twist. A region of France, Martinique’s culinary scene is unparalleled in the Caribbean, with island-inspired continental cuisine at every turn. We were recently able to visit Martinique and spend several days taking in the beauty of the island. Keep reading for details on how to win a trip for two to Martinique!

During our stay on the island, we were able to explore the island’s natural beauty with a sailing trip on Les Balades du Delphis, where we visited ilet Loup-garou (a turtle reserve), ilet Chancel (iguana island), and ilet Madame (a sand bank swimming pool in the sea). The turquoise waters and stunning surroundings made for a gorgeous day on the water. No island adventure is complete without a bit of rum, and visiting Clement Distillery and Plantation Home for a tasting and tour of the historic home was tops on our list. Last but most certainly not least, we were thrilled to have a cooking class at the renowned Les Ateliers Médélices with Chef Bredas. We picked herbs fresh from the garden and prepared the most incredible meal with local ingredients.

Martinique has no shortage of boutique hotels and resorts, each with its own personality. We adored the funky La Suite Villa and its poolside restaurant (we happened to be there during the Beaujolais Nouveau release, and the party was spectacular!) and for those looking to completely get away from it all, the spectacular Le Cap Est Lagoon Resort and Spa provides suites each with their own private plunge pool and a seaside setting sure to impress.

We simply know that you will love Martinique as much as we did, and are so excited to share a giveaway to win a trip for two to Martinique. ENTER TO WIN YOUR HONEYMOON HERE!

Organic + Modern San Diego Wedding

Tammi and Dave’s wedding at the modern L’Auberge Del Mar is the epitome of sophistication. The couple let the seaside backdrop set the stage and kept their attire and decor soft and romantic. Tammi is exquisite in a floaty Sarah Seven gown, while her maids donned white chiffon frocks of their choosing. The gossamer gowns allowed the lush, organic florals from Isari Flower Studio to bring a touch of color, with each bouquet its own unique and whimsical creation. Earthy elements such as a rustic wedding arbor, herbs nestled in the centerpieces and peppermint soap favors from Bar Soap Brooklyn echoed the gorgeous surroundings, and crisp white linens and calligraphy escort cards (hand-lettered by Tammi) added a modern touch. Prepare to be swept away by the stunning images from Steve Steinhardt!

Nautical-Inspired Seaside Wedding

All at once perfectly preppy and beautifully classic, Sydney and Matthew’s New England wedding is chock full of seaside charm! Set in Sydney’s hometown of Essex, CT, their ceremony on the Essex Town Green was a short walk from the Griswold Inn, where her parents met and their guests stayed for the wedding weekend. The nearby Connecticut River Museum is a dream reception locale, steps from the water. The town’s maritime history inspired nautical details, the most special two of which must be Sydney’s grandfather’s hand-built model sailboat from 1937—prominently displayed alongside vintage card catalog drawers used as escort cards—and a lobster boat aptly named “Tied the Knot”, built by her cousin. Florals by Ashley Drago Botanicals were kept loose and simple, inside containers collected by Sydney and her mother. A few drops of rain during the ceremony did nothing to dampen guests’ spirits, and the love this couple shares is evident in each image from the fabulous Ashley Caroline Photography!

    Peach + Blush Country Club Wedding

    Elizabeth describes her San Juan Capistrano wedding to Phillip as “classic elegance with a little twist” and we couldn’t agree more! We simply love their take on chic California style. After a traditional ceremony at Mission Basilica San Juan Capistrano, guests gathered at Marbella Country Club, where they were greeted with a stunning reception on the club terrace, designed by Intertwined Events. Gorgeous tables in tones of blush, peach, and champagne set beneath glittering chandeliers and string lights. Inviting Occasion created fluffy centerpieces of peach dahlias, snow white peonies, and blush astilbe, accenting the tables with mercury glass candlesticks and pink taper candles. We love Elizabeth’s neutral makeup and relaxed hair, styled by Kacee Geoffroy. Her natural beauty shines through and she is a vision in a structured Rivini gown. Enjoy every single frame from Andrea Patricia Photography!
