Sunday evening my sweetie and I drove down to the Mont@ge Resort & Spa in Laguna Beach to attend a vow renewal ceremony for some dear friends of his. From the road, you hardly notice the place. But once you're inside, this is the view from the balcony of the lobby. It nearly took my breath away. The clouds had moved in across Southern California yesterday, and there were sprinkles in some places, so we didn't have the sunshine you see in this photograph I found on the web. While we were there, a gorgeous Jewish wedding was taking place on the grass behind the pool area. There must have been at least two hundred guests, and thousands of red roses decorating the ceremony area. It was stunning!
We ate our celebratory dinner on another balcony with the same view. The pool looked amazing all lit up in the dark, too. I wished I had my bathing suit. ;-)
Staying at the Mont@ge isn't easy on the wallet. We heard from our hosts that the least expensive room was $800, and that there was a three-night minimum. Ouch!
