A Winter Wedding to Warm the Heart
A winter wedding. I love them! Today is the perfect day for a gathering of 100 family and friends to celebrate the love of Katie and Mike. I did my usual venture out to the wedding pavilion where the ceremony is set to happen, and had I not have known where to go, this cute sign would have helped me:
Our Atrium is set up for the ceremony, complete with evergreen trees topped with snow!
Now, this picture is a bonus! It's not too often I run into the entire bridal and their groomsmen... and they didn't mind one bit gathering to pose for me. The gowns are gorgeous, the men with their hats - admit this is a great shot!
Another bonus! I didn't want to get in the way of Katie coming down the stairs to meet her Dad, so I stepped way to the side and zoomed in and caught this shot. How beautiful! Off they go out to the Atrium...
The wedding pavilion is all set for their family and friends...
The DJ is ready to rock the room!
The Chefs have prepared Swordfish with fennel stuffing, Chicken stuffed with proscuitto & mozzarella and Filet with shallots, accompanied by baby carrots with chived butter and potato gratin.
Another cute idea!
Congratulations Katie and Mike!

Romance any time of the year
Today is the official day of showing that special someone in your life how much you love them. Why not celebrate love every day? You can at Interlaken. Valentine's Day can be alot of work, but simple romance doesn't have to be.
We've created the "Survival List for the Romantic at Heart". We've listed several ideas for you to choose from and with a few details and small effort on your part, we'll help you look like a thoughtful and romantic superstar! Here's just one idea...
Arrive back at your Guestroom after a busy day... Upon entering your room, you notice the scent of soft candlelight coming from the bathroom. You hear the sounds of your significant other’s favorite romantic music and notice the bath has been drawn with your honey’s favorite scented bubble bath. The latest copy of your sweet's favorite magazine is laying right next to the booklight and robe.
We've got many more of these sweet and special ideas up our sleeve, so be sure to watch as our list of romantic options grow!
Show the one you love how special they are any day of the week at Interlaken.
Refresh and Renew at Interlaken, Lakeville, CT
We know how long the winter months can be, and a "refresh and renew"ing of the body is usually necessary to get us through to Spring. Perhaps you are like me and work on the weekends, so a mid-week getaway is right up your alley. We've got you covered on both!
Laura Hess-Hay, owner of ELLORA Spa & Sanctuary, just put together this special "Refresh and Renew" Spa Package for mid-week travelers only. Perfect for both single Guests and those traveling with another, this package includes just what you need to invigorate yourself! The true focus of the package is the spa service - and you receive two: an exfoliating, buffing and hydrating facial as well as a classic massage performed by the expert staff at ELLORA Spa. You will have a restful night's sleep in one of our special King accommodations and awake to a veggie egg white omelette (if you choose) in our complimentary continental breakfast room. Refresh and renew at Interlaken!
