Fall weddings and elopements

Ah, the ever-popular Elopement. What better way to say "I Do" than a heartfelt ceremony with just you and maybe a few close friends and family, followed by cake and champagne, fabulous photos, a wine tour, a spa treatment and a romantic gourmet dinner! This is SO much better than Las Vegas!!

October was a popular month for Elopements - must be the combination of the end of harvest, grape crushing and the amazing California weather! The days are still warm and yet there's a slight hint of winter in the air. Couples love it here, its so romantic...the Inn will be busy in the winter with couple's enjoying their fireplaces, drinking champagne and enjoying a relaxing massage or hot stone therapy spa treatment. Sounds cozy!

WeddingMoons - a new trend in getting married

A Destination Wedding (also called a "WeddingMoon") is quickly becoming a very popular Honeymoon trend, and it has several benefits for couples and their guests...

Since most locations that specialize in Weddingmoons / Destination Weddings have Wedding Planners & Coordinators at their finger tips who are knowledgable about local marriage laws and customs, you'll be able to spend your time before, and the day of, your wedding relaxing and enjoying some spa treatments while someone else handles all the details for you.

If you have guests who will be joining you for your celebration, it can be a mini-vacation for them, Napa Valley offers a wide variety of activities and sight-seeing opportunities! if you love food and wine, this is the place for you, but there's so much more to Napa Valley!

The renovated White House Inn mansion (originally built in 1886, renovated in the 90's and again in 2008) offers guests a visually striking yet relaxing setting, perfect for a Napa Valley getaway, vacation, wedding or event. From a Napa wedding moon, elopement or romantic getaway, the inn has the amenities discerning guests desire... clean, modern design, luxurious linens, fireplaces, jetted spa tubs, pool, lush gardens, on site spa treatments and culinary delights both at breakfast and evening wine and hors d'oeuvres. Enjoy walking to Napa's downtown shopping, art galleries, wine tasting and some of the valley's finest cuisine. Check out the new developements at the Napa River Promenade area and main street! White House Inn is only a 5 minute walk from central downtown Napa but yet still situated on a quiet, tree-lined street. Ideally located in old town Napa, this historic 17 room resort-style inn features contemporary decor and stylish details. Not your typical "Bed & Breakfast" Inn!
