June brides – take a look!
Brandon just took a site tour last weekend for a couple that was interested in June of next year. Just a few days ago, the deposit check was received and the planning begins! June is a perfect month for an outdoor wedding – daytime temperatures average about 70 degrees in Lakeville, CT, with nice cool evenings. The landscaping is lush and all of the annuals are planted. Everyone is happy as the school year is ending and summer is right around the corner!
Here are some photos of a June wedding held here a couple of years ago.
A Southern-style wedding at a New England Resort
My Saturday ritual on a day there’s a wedding at Interlaken: I grab my camera and head out to take pictures of the pavilion all set and ready to go. You may think “it’s the same old thing” as centerpieces are centerpieces, and cakes are cakes, but that is not so! There are so many different flowers that can be arranged in so many unique ways, and cakes that are round, square, tall, short, with flowers, without flowers, well, you get my point! I am always anxious to see how the couple has taken our neutral outdoor setting and made it their own for the evening! It seems like each time there is just something I haven’t seen before – and today was no exception. Bowls of peaches. Yup, as simple as that, but just enough for me to say “how cute” and of course – what’s the significance of peaches? Read on to find out what Brandon Scimeca, Food & Beverage Director and Wedding Coordinator, had to say about this!
The groom is from Alabama, so they wanted a Northern wedding location with a Southern feel. Peaches are perfect! They also worked with Brandon to incorporate some Southern dishes into the menu. Southern favorites such as pimento and cheese, wild salmon with green tomato peach relish, shrimp and grits, slow roasted fresh leg of pork, and buttermilk biscuits were Southern favorites chosen for the evening. In addition to the cake, chocolate chip cookies, brownies and seven layer bars were all served, and were all family recipes.
In case you didn’t know, Brandon loves to customize menus to someone’s heritage or background, or even just personal family favorites. Family recipes can also be incorporated into the menus to make the wedding more personal and unique. Can you imagine sharing your favorite Aunt’s recipe at your wedding with all of your family and friends? Brandon can pretty much do anything you want, so be sure to contact him to start planning your personalized wedding today!
Good Morning Wedding Breakfast Guests
It’s a beautiful morning here at the Interlaken in Lakeville, CT, and the perfect morning to host a private breakfast out on our patio! The couple getting married today have started the festivities of their celebration on the early side by gathering their family and friends for a private breakfast buffet our on our patio. Seating is available both on the patio as well as outside at picnic tables on the lawn. Pictures of the bride and groom, photos of their lives before they met and after they found each other are on display – certainly something for their Guests to check and talk about over breakfast! I snapped some photos before everyone arrived, and here they are!
Wedding Celebrations at Interlaken
Here are some more photos from an August wedding last summer at Interlaken. There wasn’t a bright blue sky that day, but as you can see from the photos, it will still a perfect day for Elissa and Larry. Happy One Year Anniversary!
