Wed Like a Celeb
Continued (page 2 of 2)
No less romantic is the diversity of Mexico's quaint villages, Mayan ruins and white-sand beaches. It was on the superluxe Mexican eco-reserve Cuixmala that Seal was inspired to write his famous "Wedding Day" duet for bride Heidi Klum, and in a seaside chapel in Los Cabos where Two and a Half Men star Jon Cryer uttered his vows to Lisa Joyner. If you favor beachside settings, an idyllic option is El CareyesBeach Resort (below), a vibrant retreat on the Pacific (doubles from $305; 011-52-315-351-0000 or elcareyesresort.com). If, like actress Ali Landry and director Alejandro Monteverde, you prefer the colonial architecture and cobblestones of San Miguel de Allende, consider 32-room La Puertecita Boutique Hotel, with its carved headboards and antique doors (doubles from $227; 800-821-8909 or lapuertecita.com).
Google's Larry Page and Saturday Night Live's Jimmy Fallon both married their sweethearts on Sir Richard Branson's 74-acre Necker Island—but at $47,000 a night, the private isle is probably out of reach. Try The Cove Eleuthera instead, in the nearby Bahamas. The resort is down-to-earth yet feels exclusive (Kate Hudson has been a guest), with only 26 rooms—all with 600-thread-count sheets and pretty palettes that remind us of fresh scoops of sherbet (doubles from $235; 800-552-5960 or thecoveeleuthera.com).
