New Orleans will forever epitomize nostalgia. The Southern destination is not only a food mecca, but it’s filled with memories with some of my very favorite people.
When Southern Bride Magazine asked me and Alex if we were interested in a four-night stay in Los Cabos within one month of our wedding anniversary, we spent about ten seconds contemplating before responding, “Absolutely!!”
The Auberge Resort experience was beyond our wildest dreams — we spent two nights at trendy and contemporary Chileno Bay, balanced with Esperanza’s elegant, long-standing experience. Scroll for a preview of the paramount vacation experiences, and read more on Southern Bride!

Absorbing the city’s energy upon arrival was unavoidable, as we managed to toast with wine and steak frîtes at Balthazar until 1 a.m. on Friday without a blink (and I can’t say I’ve stayed up that late in months).
