The Honeymoon

I just realized that with all the excitement of receiving our GORGEOUS wedding photos, I have forgotten about the honeymoon.  This wondrous event began once we left Campelot and arrived at The Greenbrier!  A historic place that has seen many celebrities and presidents.  This place is something from a fairy tale.  As if you're Cinderella visiting a castle, not your Prince's castle, but one of equal standards.  Honestly, we could have spent our entire two weeks there and still never have left.  Ever.  That must show how much we adore our home state.

The design and decor are impeccable.  The staff unbelievingly friendly. 

We stayed mesmerized, start to finish. 

The Greenbrier is located in White Sulphur Springs, West Virginia.  It is very well hidden amongst our Appalachian mountains.  One of the greatest aspects of the resort is the bunker.  We were able to take a tour with the most gracious of guides and learned more than we could have imagined.  If you get a chance, go!

Beautiful and clean

Impeccable gardening

I wish we would have taken more photos of the interior of The Greenbrier.  Do a quick search on Google Images and take a look.  You will fall in love with the way it transports you to another era.  It is designed after the original decorator, Dorothy Draper, by Carleton Varney.  His taste is exquisite, as is his talent.

This is one place we will visit again, and again.
