Honeymoon Destinations | In Need of Vitamin Sea

Patagonia BVI 2

Ralph Waldo Emerson had it all right when he wrote, “Live in the sunshine, swim in the sea, and drink the wild air.” Today we are sending sunny thoughts your way and are excited to share some of our favorite honeymoon destinations for all of you brides and grooms out there.

Here at WTTK, we love travel. Travel is a wonderful tool of creative inspiration for our design process, from distinctive color palates to romantic lighting ambiance, unique atmospheres, and one of a kind entertainment. There is something exhilarating about wandering the unfamiliar streets of a new city, veering off the beaten path, and embracing the vibrancy of new cultures.

Vendor Spotlight | Bliss by LCT: I recently had the opportunity to meet with the lovely Jodie of Bliss by Luxury Concierge Travel to chat about their services.  They specialize in “designing inspired, creative, & customized honeymoons, romantic escapes, & luxurious getaways.” Bliss by LCT values getting to know their clients to create a custom-tailored itinerary. The Bliss team consists of travel designers and can help create a truly unforgettable and one of a kind experience.
