ITALY - AMORE AROUND EVERY CORNER
What could be a more romantic than legendary Italy, the birthplace of “la dolce vita?” A host of medieval towns, palatial villas, signature wines and top-notch cuisine make this an ideal wedding choice. From the majestic foothills of northern Italy’s Lake Region - always a favorite with international celebrities - to the picturesque vistas of Tuscany’s wine region, to the lush orange groves of Sicily, there is a reason why Italy is one of the most romantic countries in the world.
FRANCE - FOR LOVERS
Whether you opt to tie the knot in Paris - the City of Light - with the Eiffel Tower, the Louvre and other signature sights as your witnesses - or prefer the privacy of a classy manor house, or a posh villa on the French Riviera, you'll find the perfect wedding spot anywhere you go. The South of France's astonishing beauty has always been synonymous with glitz, glamour, celebrity and sunshine. Nineteenth century Impressionists may have shaped the romantic aura it typifies today, but more than any other region, Provence blends the past and the present with customs and traditions guaranteed to ensure a magical wedding.
IRELAND - THE EMERALD ISLE
The land of the leprechauns beckons with a host of romantic - and magical - destination wedding choices. The Cliffs of Moher, a five-mile stretch of rugged cliffs soaring 700 feet above the sea and the Ring of Kerry, a 100-mile circuit dotted with revered monuments, quaint villages, colorful pubs and romantic castles are just a few of the favorites. Quaint legends and lore abound throughout Ireland and of course, if you find that elusive Irish four-leaf clover along the way, your marriage should be set for life.
