Amazing Winter Wedding photos!
I was able to take some pictures from this past weekend’s winter wedding (I posted them on my blog on Saturday the 11th) – but let’s be honest – absolutely NOTHING compares with a professional! Michael Dominique was the photographer who caught all of the festivities for the entire weekend at Interlaken, starting with the rehearsal dinner on Friday to the farewell brunch on Sunday. Although he is still logging in the pictures from the weekend, you can view most of them by visiting his website at www.mdominique.zenfolio.com. Click on “All my photos”, then “Ben and Chelsea’s Wedding” – the password is Interlaken. I highly suggest pouring yourself your favorite beverage (you know mine – Harney and Sons Tea) and taking a few moments to check out these photos – they are simply gorgeous! Michael captured every moment perfectly. I particularly love the shots at our lakefront – who says the lake can’t be involved in the colder months?! The ceremony in our Atrium – see how pretty it was! Enjoy!
P.S. Do these photos want to make you start planning your winter wedding weekend? Email firstname.lastname@example.org to contact Brandon about available dates for the 2011/2012 winter season!
Look Who's Talking 2!
Remember last blog I wrote “Interlaken Guests, keep the comments coming”? They are still coming! Read this one I received today:
We recently held a two day management conference at Interlaken Inn. We appreciated the professionalism and personable approach of all your staff including Kristy, Stephanie and Eric in the restaurant. The meeting facilities and events were well organized. The accommodations and the food were excellent.
We would definitely return to Interlaken Inn and recommend it to others. Please extend our appreciation to your staff.
Thank you, Bob – it was our pleasure to service your group! We hope you return soon!

The Gift of Time
I love talking with Guests that are looking to surprise their significant other with “The Gift of Time”. I spoke with a nice young lady the other day who was looking to give her new husband “the gift of time” with a night away as a Christmas present. She started her internet search with “shows in Connecticut” and came across Infiity Hall over in Norfolk, CT, just 20 minutes from the Interlaken. “The Sounds of ABBA” caught her eye, as well as the Interlaken “Night on the Town” package we offer that includes overnight accommodations, tickets to the show, and breakfast for two the next day. She booked the package at Infinity, and upon further conversation about “the gift of time” (I get excited when someone wishes to surprise someone else, especially like this), we talked about other packages we offer and ended up booking another for February! Our “Sleigh Ride” package fit the bill perfectly for her – a romantic sleigh ride at Loon Meadow Farm (also in Norfolk) and two tickets to the Norman Rockwell Museum. She was thrilled about that one as Norman Rockwell is her husband’s favorite artist, and who can beat a sleigh ride? Let’s hope for lots of snow in February when she comes!
If you wish to give the “Gift of Time” this year to your special someone, please give me a call – I’d love to plan it with you!
