Happy Valentine's Day from Albion River Inn!

Posted: 02/14/2015

At Albion River Inn, we are very lucky to have played a part in many love stories over the years. We have hosted lovers from all over the globe, but this Valentine’s Day, we wanted to feature local artists, Chirs and Shani Christenson, who honeymooned at Albion River Inn 20 years ago.  Chris is a local jewelry designer, and owns and operates a great studio just off of main street called Celtic Creations ( One of his favorite commissions is making custom wedding sets for engaged couples. Shani not only designs jewelry for the shop, but she also owns Shani’s Sweet Creations - an internet-based baking business ( She does wonderful cakes for some of the weddings here at Albion River Inn, as well as baked goods for all sorts of events and special occasions.  The two met in Mendocino when they were just teenagers, and the rest, as they say, is history.  They were married by a shaman from one of the Pacific Northwest tribes, and they said their vows overlooking the ocean from the Mendocino headlands. Shani’s dress was made of white buckskin, and covered with fringe and moonstones.  And, of course, they honeymooned at Albion River Inn.  Congratulations to Chris and Shani for 20 wonderful years. Albion River Inn is proud to be a part of your love story, and we wish you many happy years to come!
