Movie-Inspired Honeymoons

Honeymoons & Destination Weddings


I saw The Lord of the Rings in the theater. I vividly remember how in awe I was of the incredible scenery projected on the screen and in those few hours, sitting in a tattered seat in one of New York City's smaller cinemas, I vowed to someday travel to the other side of the world and experience New Zealand's incredible natural beauty first hand.

I know we've all had these moments with certain films in which the scenery is so spectacular the images stay with us long after the movie has ended. With this in mind, I put together a few honeymoon ideas based on popular films with outstanding backdrops including Out of Africa, A River Runs Through It, the aforementioned Lord of the Rings, plus several others. I'd love to hear what other movies inspire you to travel, too.—Leigh Crandall
