Peanut butter and jelly, salt and pepper, chocolate and vanilla, Tom and Jerry - it's nice when things go together!

Alone they are wonderful, but each one will taste better with the other!

Will you Marry Me?
Proposals have happened before at Interlaken, but each time I hear that one is going to happen I get excited like it's the very first time! Remember the one that happened in Morgan's last summer? Or the one that happened right after the holidays? We love being a part of such a momentus occasion, and this time was no exception.
A pathway of rose petals and sweetly lit candles to a destination of more beautiful roses and candles, chilled champagne, and freshly made chocolate-covered strawberries - right to the spot of where she said YES! Surprise!
Although this groom-to-be had his own thoughts on the big proposal, we've created a special Romantic Engagement Package that will make this moment an unforgettable one for the one you love. It includes all of your meals as well as a photo shoot with photographer Eric Limon and a special discount off Interlaken's wedding packages. You do know we do weddings here too, right?! If you've got the right one for you and you've got a ring that fits, let us help you do the rest!
