Oh, I just love everything about The Greenbrier in White Sulphur Springs, West Virginia. It is secluded, beautiful and historic. Annnd it’s magical.
Since I was a little girl, I have thought of this as the castle where my parents were married. I remember going there as a young child and being mesmerized by the hotel’s size and glamour. I also remember my parents showing me the room where they were married. However, as my now husband (fiancee at the time) traveled to The Greenbrier this past summer (three months before we were married), I was positive I would be able to “know the room when I saw it”. Turns out, I had to ask for a little assistance, but it was the North Parlor. Gorgeous. Colorful. Memorable. I will never forget it. Being in that room was so amazing and so surreal because my parents had been married there almost 30 years earlier. I must share that the infamous “Love Clock” that was on Emily Maynard’s season of The Bachelorette was featured during a one-on-one date in this same room. The love clock was definitely a smaller, more obscure version in my parents’ wedding photos, however when we opened it, it had a ton of love notes stuffed in the bottom. So, naturally… my hubbie and I decided to join the “legacy” and add our love note.
Go to lunch @ Draper’s. Please google Dorothy Draper. Enjoy it’s tradition and history.
Outside of Draper’s what were your other favorite restaurants at Greenbrier?

The Forum is Italian and I can’t pass that up – also, Tree Tops Cafe at the pool … can’t beat that setting! Have you been?

I cannot say how much I LOVE the Greenbrier!!!! I agree it’s completely magical. I promise I’m not doing this to promote my blog, but I wrote a post about it too (http://www.meganericson.com/dorothy-draper-and-the-greenbrier/). I’m a complete interior design nerd, so Dorothy Draper is one of my idols in this realm. It’s so amazing your parents were married there!
