When we think of a former military fortress, romance isn't necessarily the first thing that comes to mind. We imagine architect-owner Antonio Obrador must have stood where the lounge is now, eyes closed, basking in a sea breeze overlooking stunning views of the bay of Palma and was overcome with the potential in this rather daunting Spanish military fortress. Thusly, he refurbished it into a dreamy destination we’d love to get lost in. Cap Rocat is a stunning waterfront hotel and wedding venue in Mallorca, Spain.

REPORTER: Jake Kilroy

The Los Angeles of yore was a strange, ritzy affair, welcoming the rough tumblers alongside the class acts. West coasters knew the value of paradise out among the palm trees and a city always under construction, and if you had picked any brain of a mid-century Angeleno, he or she would’ve told you anything was possible in the future if you could protect what’s yours in the present.

These days, philosophy doesn’t always make its way into the luxury game. Too often, respect and relaxation aren’t backed enough by earnestness and empathy. One stunning L.A. gem, however, is as chic as it is classic, because no joint in town knows how to recreate the City of Angels’ old-school charm like Mr. C Beverly Hills.

REPORTER: Maddie Erdossy

While the idea of a destination wedding is exotic and romantic in theory, for many it can be a little stressful. Without pre-planned activities, guests may feel a bit lost in a new city. Why not host a welcome event and set a sweet tone for the entirety of your wedding? But instead of a standard arrival cocktail party, Cherry on Top Events took it about three steps further and planned a pre-wedding lunch at the picturesque Cavas de Codorniu, a historic cava vineyard complete with an underground cave cellar and authentic Gothic architecture.

Historic Chapel in the Hills
REPORTER: Jake Kilroy

St. Joseph's Guesthouse is like an old dream that stays with you. An intimate Australian chapel, wonderfully strengthened by history and dynamically surrounded by a grassy landscape, the forest gem enthralls couples and guests alike. It practically sings from the hilltop. Sneakily tucked in the Lower MacDonald Valley, the restored five-bedroom family-owned stone getaway invites you with a charm that seems to transcend centuries, a vibrant relic that welcomes the art of conversation over grand feast. But there’s a plunge pool and deck with a barbecue, so imagine Game of Thrones with a bed and breakfast twist.
