Erin & Daniel in Colorado
The Florida-based wedding photographers opted for a change of scenery, skipping the traditional beach honeymoon and instead heading to the mountains for some adventure and much-needed postwedding relaxation.
Time of Year: Mid to Late October
Length of Trip: 7 days
Travel Time: 4.5 hours from Fort Lauderdale, FL
Where They Stayed: At one of their first stops, Estes Park, the couple spent two nights at the historic Stanley Hotel (the hotel that inspired The Shining) -- they loved the whiskey bar and its close proximity to Rocky Mountain National Park. Next, they stayed overnight at Hotel Colorado in Glenwood Springs, where their suite had its own bell tower with panoramic views of the mountains. Their last stop was Denver's Ritz-Carlton, where they booked the Luxury Suite -- "it was a highlight of our trip."
