Honeymooning in Cabo

In today’s day and age, when two people are getting married, the honeymoon is just as important as the wedding itself. It’s important for the couple to choose a place where they can find romance, excitement, beauty and relaxation all wrapped into one. A great choice is Cabo San Lucas. Cabo is an easy getaway, with impeccable weather, beautiful blue crystal blue waters, top notch resorts, wonderful culinary experiences and loads of fun. Don’t hesitate to reach out to the Cabo San Lucas Tourism Board, an extremely helpful association for suggestions in planning the best honeymoon for you. 

All of the resort destinations in Cabo are located along the corridor, right on the Pacific Ocean. When choosing where to stay on your honeymoon, you need to select a place that fits your budget and provides you with the features that will make your honeymoon memorable forever and ever. If you are able to splurge and if you are a couple who wants the best of the best, hands down, the choice is the Capella Pedregal.

This five star resort is located steps away from the town of Cabo San Lucas, but upon entering their dramatic dimly-lit private tunnel, you are immediately transported to romance and sophistication. The property is exquisite; each room has a fireplace, an ocean view and a plunge pool for those late nights when it is just the two of you. The room is tastefully decorated with no detail overlooked, from the high thread count premium Egyptian cotton signature beddings, to the luxurious bath products and the rainshower in the bathroom.

And, each room comes with a personal assistant who can see to your every romantic whim. While you are there, don’t miss the couples cooking class where one of their top notch chefs will teach you how to make Mexican ceviche masterpieces. For dining, consider a romantic dinner at their clifftop restaurant, El Farallon, where you sit under the stars while listening to the waves crash below, or an intimate dinner for two in their wine cellar tucked away from the other guests. And remember to check out The Auriga Spa, which is very picturesque in and of itself. 

The spa experience starts off with a foot scrub, followed by a hot and cold plunge pool. Then, ask for the massage for two and end your visit in their luxurious outdoor hot tub.

A Matrimonial Lawyer, in the Truest Sense

Vol. 42 No. 7

ByLeslie A. Gordon

LESLIE A. GORDON is a secret lawyer who has been working as a freelance legal affairs journalist for more than 10 years.

Law, Samantha Daniels said, is “in my blood.” Her father was a prestigious lawyer and Philadelphia chancellor. Her two brothers are lawyers. “As a family, the law and legal education [were] considered fundamental,” she said. “At a young age, I was fascinated by the law. If I wanted to convince my father of something, I had to lawyer him. I grew up with it, I understand it.”

So it was natural for Daniels to become an attorney herself. After graduating from Temple University Beasley School of Law, she went into matrimonial law. She chose that field because she was “always a people person” and liked the family law classes in law school. She first worked for a judge in the matrimonial division of the New York Supreme Court and later joined a law firm’s matrimonial practice.

While working as an attorney, Daniels was always “throwing parties on the side for my single friends,” she recalled. “To be a good hostess, I would introduce people: ‘You’re both from Chicago and you both like to play tennis.’ Then I’d learn that they’d gotten engaged. I thought to myself, ‘It’s more rewarding to get people together than to break them apart.’” And her matches were solid because she’d learned in her law practice why relationships don’t work and was able to avoid those pitfalls.

Before long, Daniels left the law to form a matchmaking company, Samantha’s Table. She has since helped more than 300 people find spouses. Her database now has 50,000 clients across the country and she has offices in New York and Los Angeles. Her business caters to high-profile, successful people looking for love. “They’re all top, top in their professions,” Daniels said of her clients. “The have no trouble getting dates, they just haven’t found the right person.”

Chronicling her work, Daniels wrote Matchbook: The Diary of a Modern Day Matchmaker, which was made into a TV show called Miss Match created by Darren Star and starring Alicia Silverstone. Today, she regularly appears on TV for advice and celebrity segments and writes romance travel articles and relationship columns for several publications, including The Huffington Post.

Though far from the courtroom, Daniels said, “Honestly, I think I use my law degree every day. A JD is a better degree than even an undergrad degree because it teaches you skills you’ll use in the real life.
