    Savannah Brinson & LeBron James: San Diego

    Sure, he’s larger than life on the court. Yes, he earns a ginormous salary. And then there’s the nickname —King James — B-ball superstar LeBron James isn’t exactly what you’d call discreet. But when it came to swapping vows with his long-time lady love and mother of his two children, Savannah Brinson, LeBron was exactly that.

    The couple hosted an intimate, weekend-long wedding celebration for close friends and family at the picturesque Grand Del Mar in San Diego. The Spanish colonialstyle hotel’s atmosphere, which is at once sophisticated and relaxed, is what makes it such a slam-dunk choice for any wedding.

    Set amidst a rambling, award-winning golf course, the sprawling, sundappled property encompasses four pools, tennis courts, an enormous spa, a chapel, 249 guest rooms and more. On-site wedding venues can accommodate anywhere from 60 to 300 guests. All boast the traditional charm and warmth of the setting with decor touches such as wrought-iron accents, wood-beamed ceilings and stone verandas.

    The Capella is a classic ceremony setting with stained-glass windows and imported Italian pew benches. The Manchester Salon and Terrace is a more cozy option with fireplaces and a large terrace overlooking the property. Or opt for the Reflection Lawn, which houses a gazebo next to a pretty pool and offers uninterrupted views of the golf course and surrounding canyons.

    For those just looking for a resort getaway there are six dining options and expansive wellness offerings. The spa, an epicenter of pampering, not only boasts an endless treatment menu, it also hosts yoga, Pilates and eco-walks across the property and hikes at the nearby nature reserve. And let’s not forget golf — the course is one of the most prized in the state. Accommodations either have fairway or pool views and are spacious enough for a king (room rates start at $395 a night; thegranddelmar.com).

    By now it’s somewhat of a cliché to say it when speaking of Las Vegas — but instead of letting what happened stay there, Smash star and Broadway mainstay Meghan Hilty sang out with news of her marriage to fellow actor Brain Gallagher at the Venetian Las Vegas. The couple also eschewed the infamous quickie ceremony and were joined by an intimate number of family members in the resort’s pretty chapel.

    In addition to the golden-draped, glittering chapel area, the 4,000-room hotel, which is set in the center of the famous Las Vegas Strip, has myriad wedding locales. There’s an outdoor terrace, a sparkling Italianate fountain in a courtyard, an indoor garden and the Weddings Bridge, which spans the hotel’s Grand Canal celebrating the resort’s namesake city. Couples can also arrive via a white gondola complete with serenading gondoliers. The Palazzo’s outdoor waterfall is another marquee ceremony area that boasts epic seasonal decor crafted by the Venetian’s horticultural team.

    Holly Madison left her Peepshow days behind her when she and Pasquale Rotella welcomed daughter Rainbow Aurora in March 2013. Six months later, when the two decided to wed, she showed she’s truly a Girl Next Door when she chose a fairy-tale — and downright PG — setting, the original Disneyland Park in California.

    Sprawling across a whopping 160 acres and encompassing eight "lands," including Main Street U.S.A, Tomorrowland and Frontierland, and endless green spaces, restaurants and other awesome photo-worthy sites, the park is a magical venue for any special occasion.

    While all wedding experiences are customizable, the most enchanted offering includes a ceremony at the iconic Sleeping Beauty Castle followed by a mesmerizing reception at the Small World Mall.

    For a more classically traditional day, opt to swap vows at the picturesque Rose Court Garden, a private flower-filled enclave complete with a wedding gazebo at the Disneyland Hotel that can accommodate up to 350 guests. Marry here and you can make your entrance from Cinderella’s Crystal Coach, a horse-drawn carriage complete with liveried footmen.

    John Legend & Chrissy Teigen: Portofino

    It should come as no surprise to his fans that Grammy-winning singer/songwriter John Legend, who’s known for his romantic ballads, had a storybook wedding at an Italian villa when he wed longtime fiancé, model Chrissy Teigen. After the lavish, celebrity-studded event — the bride wore three Vera Wang gowns — the couple sojourned on Italy’s sun-kissed coast. One of their stops on the famed Riviera included Portofino, a one-time fishing village that became a must-visit Jet Set destination in the early 1950s.

    All guest rooms are individually appointed with original artwork, marble baths and private balconies or terraces with water views. Common areas, two restaurants and a club-like bar embody a grand Belle Epoque style with ornate rugs, antiques and gilded accents.

    The food is a celebration of the region, featuring a bounty of fresh produce and plucked-from-the sea fish. There’s a seasonal poolside eatery that crafts pizzas to order in a wood-fired oven.

    The hotel’s breathtaking grounds encompass lavender plants and olive and lemon trees, along with the aforementioned pool. Some guests split their visit with sister property Splendido Mar, an intimate harborside hotel. A complimentary shuttle links the two properties (room rates start at about $780 a night and include breakfast; orient-express.com).

    Set on a hillside overlooking the charming town and the sparkling sea, the 64-room Hotel Splendido is one of Portofino’s most treasured hideaways. The former monastery has been functioning as a hotel since 1901 and has welcomed such bold-faced names as Elizabeth Taylor, Richard Burton and Ava Gardner — in fact one of the premier suites bears the actress’s name.

    She may be known for her soapy roles on the Bold and the Beautiful and the original Beverly Hills 90210, but when it came to marrying her longtime partner, celebrity chef Curtis Stone, actress Lindsay Price opted out of the drama and went full-on storybook romance. The couple, who have a son together, chose a low-key, intimate ceremony and reception at a private villa on the sun-dappled, picturesque Mediterranean island of Mallorca off the coast of Spain. Renting a villa abroad for a destination wedding affords the unique experience of feeling both exotic and homey.
