Montecito Estate

 
This is La Quinta Estate in Montecito where Hilary Duff got married.  I am absolutely obsessed with Montecito.  It is one of the prettiest places on Earth.  Montecito/Santa Barbara is on the top of our list for wedding locations and I can't wait to start looking at venues!  To see more of the La Quinta Estate and for details on Hilary's wedding go here.

Hamptons Home in Bridgehampton


Check out this $43,500,000 Hamptons Home located in Bridgehampton.  This house is on Halsey Lane which is the same street that we rented a house on last summer in Bridgehampton.  Needless to say, it was nothing like this!  They sure do know how to go big in the Hamptons, take a look.

Travel Tuesday - Casa Elar in Ojai




Casa Elar is a vacation rental that is a part of Ojai Valley Inn & Spa.  It is a gated 5 bedroom estate that has all the advantages of the five diamond Ojai Valley Inn & Spa.  It is also the house that the girls rented for the weekend on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills...remember?  You can see rental information and more pictures of Casa Elar here.

In the meantime, look at this fabulous dinner at Casa Elar created by XOXO Bride

Flower Power





Who doesn't love flowers?  Especially when they are from your favorite florist!  My mom, sister and soon to be mother in law sent us flowers for our engagement from Moe's.  See my previous post about Moe's here.


I just had to share because they are so gorgeous!


From all sides!


Hope you have a fabulous Friday!  I am hoping that I will have enough time to do some quality posts this weekend!  I found some amazing Hampton's homes, fabulous weddings and I am dying to do a post on Mary McDonald's house on the season finale of Million Dollar Decorators - we looked at her house when we were house shopping and it was so fun to see it on TV!

Travel Tuesday - Esperanza Resort Cabo


Here are some pictures from our Cabo vacation.  We stayed at the Esperanza Resort and I absolutely fell in love with the place.  You can see why LeAnn Rimes frequents the resort. LeAnn Rimes was actually staying at Esperanza Resort while we were there!


The pool was my favorite part and pretty much where I spent the most of my trip.


The food by the pool and in all the main restaurants is delicious.  Shrimp ceviche and fish tacos were among my favorites.  We also ate at the Mexican fiesta that they have on Thursdays and we had a front row seat for the most amazing fireworks that were falling into the ocean...beautiful!!!



We were in a spa casita pictured above and below.




We had a large porch with our own infinity hot tub.



When not at the pool we were usually in the main bar above.  The service was great and I think they enjoyed hanging out with us(watching us get tipsy) after a few too many margaritas!


Here is a picture of the main restaurant, it is beautiful overlooking the ocean on a cliff.



We had a fabulous time and I can't wait to go back!  I love that Cabo is only a 2 hour flight from Los Angeles!  There are more photos here from my previous post and you can find the Esperanza Resort website here.
