I could not be more excited for this post!!! Over the next few weeks, I'll be outlining everyday of our honeymoon individually, talking about the places we went and the things we experienced. It's going to be a great time and I hope to show you all the love we experienced on this vacation.
Day 1 started with a glorious nights stay at Wooley's Classic Suites in Denver!
We were so excited to find this gem while searching hotels for our wedding night. While perusing Trip Advisor for ideas on honeymoon destinations, I came across a list of 50 Best Rated Hotels in the World 2015. As I clicked through the list of beautiful hotels, I found myself dreaming of laying on a beach drinking something fruity, when all of sudden DENVER poped up! Out of all the places in the world, a Denver hotel made the list. Andrew and I looked into what seemed to be a mistake and found that it, in fact, was not a mistake. The beautiful finishing and amenities were just what we were looking for in a wedding night hotel! From the minute we arrived, Wooley's was everything we could have hoped for in a hotel. It was beautiful, the service was amazing, and the room was perfect! The next morning, they provided us with transportation to the airport free of charge.
Now that we were on our way to BEAUTIFUL San Juan, Puerto Rico. Andrew and I took some time to text loved ones and said thank you to everyone who showed unimaginable support as we said "I Do!" Once at the airport, we grabbed a snack and boarded our flight for Dallas where we would connect and continue on our way! Lunch in the Dallas airport was everything I could have dreamed of... Hungover having Pappasito's Mexican Cantina is how I imagine I will want to spend my last meal. I was beyond excited to get a little taste of home and start our marriage off on the right foot- OLE!
As we continued on to Puerto Rico, I was becoming more and more excited for our next hotel! Andrew, being the savvy hotel finder he is, had secured us a room at the most luxurious boutique hotel in PR. Upon arriving, the O:live Boutique Hotel was absolutely breathe taking. Winning the 2014 Boutique Hotel Award was no surprise, as this place makes you want to live there! From the moment you arrive, you are embraced with luxury accommodations thick with European influences. In addition, the Puerto Rico influence adds a hint of character that can't be captured in words! Greeted with a Coquito shot, we immediately fell in love with the hotel! Bell boys carried our luggage to our room as we took a stroll down the nearby streets.
After finding the beach, we headed back to the hotel where we showered (in our outdoor hottub shower) and dressed for dinner. One of our favorite parts of this hotel was the award winning restaurant located in the lobby, home of renowned chef Mario Pagan. However, after checking out our private balcony and shower, we decided that enjoying our dinner on our deck would be far more romantic. The O:live staff delivered each course from Sage Steak Loft directly to our room, as if we were eating in the restaurant! The food was to die for and the wine was paired perfectly! If you ever get the chance to try it, you can't live without the Lobster Mac N' Cheese... I know. I'm sorry!
With full tummies (and hearts) we headed up to the rooftop bar for a late night drink and some dancing! The view from the roof took our breath away, as we enjoyed ourselves with other couples and families. After closing, we headed back down to our room, where we nestled in to bed, tired but ecstatic for the next day!
I could go on and on about this magical hotel and experience, but I'll let the pictures do the talking! We cannot wait to go back in a few years for an anniversary.
