Revisiting Churchill Manor

 I'm finally getting around to the pictures that I took of our wedding venue, Churchill Manor, (built in 1889) in beautiful wine country, or more specifically -- Napa, California.  And yes, I realize that I got married a little over 4 years ago... that just shows how utterly behind I am in getting my photos posted!  I really don't mean to be such a procrastinator.  Honestly, this past year has just been so incredibly crappy and I kind of lost my motivation for creativity.  However, I don't have an 'excuse' for the previous three years before that. 😬

Anyway... I really enjoyed being able to relive the memories that Churchill Manor brings to mind, even from just looking at photos.  It was one of the best few days of my life and this place will always be near and dear to my heart. 💕 So please join me in a tour of sorts!

Outside view of the front of the house.

The simple, but elegant front lawn.  This is where the wedding took place!

One of the sides of the extensive wraparound porch.  This was a great place to enjoy breakfast.  There are also some tables set up around the corner, if a larger eating area was needed.

 I absolutely loved the front doors! 💖

What greeted you when entering the main foyer.

This area was used for the daily early evening cheese and wine (and other snacks) provided by the B&B.  They would be found on the table in the center of the room.

Turn to the right from the previous photo and you found yourself in the entrance to the formal dining room.  It was exquisite!

If you look at the previous photo to that little cabinet at the back of the room, this is what you will see, upon closer view.  I just thought this was a pretty angle with the flowers and the sconces.

And here's the room that Jacques & I stayed in, called Stags Leap.  It was the original master suite of the founder, Edward Churchill.

The beautiful 2-person pedestal soaking tub.  The entrance to the left is the water closet, with the entrance to the right into a spacious shower.  I especially loved the artwork above the tub, it inspired a sense of peace and calm.

Close-up view of part of the tile that surrounded the tub.

This was only a bookend that was located on the mantle in our room... I can't explain it, but I just like the look of these!

This lamp was actually in the room that my mom stayed in, though I cannot remember which one she was in.  It was just a really neat lamp that I wanted to capture.

And here we are, back outside of the mansion -- just a pretty little walkway leading out of the yard.

Still in the yard, just a cute little seating area.

We had planned to go back at least on our year anniversary, but that hasn't happened yet.  Maybe we'll make it back out for our five year anniversary!
