Milestone Anniversary Destinations
A wedding anniversary is a memorable occasion that celebrates one’s marriage, reflecting back on the day that partners married. Milestone anniversaries, in particular, offer the opportunity to rejoice in decades of memories in a big way. While traditional anniversaries usually include gifts and arranging intimate dinner reservations with a partner, a beautiful marriage that withstands time from china (20th) to diamond (60th) anniversary and onward, should be uniquely celebrated. Whether couples wish to travel the world or stay within the United States, party planners at The Manor have both romantic and exciting ideas that will keep the love lasting a lifetime.

Renewing vows at sunset sets even more romance as the Eiffel Tower lights up from top to bottom making for spectacular photos. Paris is a romantic city with many activities for a couple to enjoy such as riding down the Seine River. These short river cruises allow visitors to see the city’s aesthetic beauty including the Louvre, the Eiffel Tower, the Musée d’Orsay, and Notre Dame Cathedral. In addition to sightseeing, couples can wine and dine, savor classic French foods such as crème brûlée, pralines, foie gras, and traditional French cheeses such as Cabecou and comté, while touring the beautiful city.
