2. Elope in Vegas - Las Vegas, Nevada HomeAway.com property 170887 For those getting hitched by an Elvis impersonator on the Strip, this "suite" Vegas pad provides a reasonably-priced home away from home and a threshold for a groom to carry his bride over. And this time, hopefully what happens in Vegas, stays...together.
3. Oceanfront Nuptials - Grand Cayman Island HomeAway.com property 119091 This 5,000-square-foot estate is a destination wedding dream-come- true. Picture this: the bride takes her first steps toward wedded bliss down a 250-foot-aisle of white sandy beach, while the groom waits expectantly framed by the deep blue Caribbean. The Cayman Castle and its guesthouse accommodate 18 guests and have two private pools -- one of which appears to extend to infinity.
4. Cheers to Love - Napa Valley, California HomeAway.com property 117291 "...wine and love have ever been allies." If you agree with Ovid, then chances for romance blossom in the heart of Napa Valley at a quaint cottage on the St.Helena Winery. The caretakers offer a hands-on tour of the property and samples of their award-winning cabernet sauvignon. Although the cottage features a second bedroom and a pool, the vacation home is outfitted for grownups only.
