Luna de miel

Those are correct translations of the nouns in the phrase.

What is the literal translation of the phrase luna de miel?
If you translate moon as a month (one lunar cycle), what is the literal translation then?

Honey month, or month of honey, is the meaning behind our word honeymoon. The first month of marriage is the sweetest, or so the saying goes.
