Two days after the wedding, the newlyweds took a five-day mini moon to Hawaii. “It was close to Seattle, and one of the few sunny places we could visit during hurricane season,” Jess says. The real getaway—to Argentina and Uruguay—came a few months later. There, they fell in love with the Vines of Mendoza ( vinesofmendoza.com), a hotel and vineyards in Mendoza, Argentina, and Estancia Vik José Ignacio ( vikretreats.com), a 4,000-acre property in Uruguay, complete with horse stables. But the one thing they’ll never forget: “After lunch at Francis Mallmann’s El Garzón ( restaurant egarzon.com), where we were the only two guests, the chef invited us to his home for coffee, a cigar, and some great conversation,” Todd says.
