Elopement Packages from California Inns
SACRAMENTO, CA [February 27, 2018]--As purveyors of romance, many California B&Bs and boutique hotels are ideal destinations for elopements and small weddings: couples can exchange vows in an intimate garden surrounded by beautiful blooms, amid a majestic forest, or on a bluff overlooking the ocean. There are more than 100 members of the California Association of Boutique & Breakfast Inns (CABBI) that offer wedding services. Many of the inns also offer elopement packages to save couples the time, money and the stress of planning a wedding.
Napa’s Churchill Manor, an exquisite 1889 mansion in Napa, is a stunning venue for that special day. Customizable packages might include a two- or three-night stay, wedding bouquet, boutonniere, wedding cake, and champagne toast. Couples have their choice of ceremony location: inside the grand parlors, on the covered veranda overlooking the gardens, or amid the beautifully landscaped grounds. A la carte extras—photography, live music, in-room couples’ massages, a winery and picnic tour, or a sit-down dinner—are also available. For couples tempted to say “I do” to it all, the all-inclusive Ultimate Intimate Elopement package covers every detail imaginable. For details, check out the manor’s Elopements page.
