A Christmas Wish For All

Hello and Merry Christmas!

The staff here at Featherwinds would like to wish all of you a very Merry Christmas! May all of your family and friends have a safe and joyful holiday.

Our Christmas wish is that everyone spends a moment reflecting on the true meaning of Christmas. Look deep inside your heart, ask yourself "is this the best I can be?"
Be true to yourself and to your family. Smile at that person as they walk by, even if you don't know them. Remember, this is not about receiving, but about giving. Not how much you spend, but giving from the heart.

Merry Christmas one and all. This is the season of love, giving and sharing. Please make this season last as long as you can.

Warm wishes, Merry Christmas and happy holidays!

Hello,

As we move into the last week of August, we would like to say thank you to all of the wedding guests we have had here at Featherwinds. We have been very busy with weddings and retreats this month and we hope all have enjoyed staying at Featherwinds Lodging.
This last weekend we had a wedding of approximately 90 guests. Smoked salmon and stuffed chicken breasts were the main entrée served with fresh baked rolls, bread and of course vegetables. We also served a delicious spinach and strawberry salad topped with our special dressing.
After dinner, the traditional toast to the newly wed couple was said, followed by additional toasts by family and friends. A special toast was made by a lovely 14 year old bride’s maid that brought tears, smiles and a warming of the heart to all.
Soon the wedding cake was cut and served. The cake was decorated with Baby’s Breath, greens and creamy pink roses with a weave pattern frosting. The delicious cake was enjoyed and then followed dancing.

For their assistance and warm smiles, we would like to thank: Kathy and Becky, Margaret and Eric, Shirley and John, and Kristen.

Thank you all very much and we hope to see you again soon.

A Wedding Memory

The day was sunny and warm with a slight cooling summer breeze from the west. The white wedding arbor was adorned with beautiful hanging baskets filled with spring and summer colors. The bordering garden displayed their beautiful flowers featuring colors of every sort; reds, whites, yellows, blues, and purples. Lavender and monarda plants inter-mixed the gardens, providing a bitter sweet lavender fragrance throughout the wedding area. This is truly a picturesque display of Leavenworth weddings.
The gorgeous bride appeared, beaming a smile from ear to ear with joyful tears welding up in her eyes. The groom, dressed handsomely in a traditional black tuxedo; smiling, admiring his wife to be as she approached the wedding alter.
The wedding service was not long and with the air filled with love and joy, the bride and groom promising their devotion forever more. The feelings of love, joy and happiness lifted everyone’s heart as the couple was pronounced husband and wife. Cheers of joy and a few amends could be heard as the newly wed couple walked down the aisle on a carpet of lush, full green grass.The celebration continued as the guests and happy couple spoke loudly with voices full of joy and jubilation. Toasts where made in honor of the newly weds; some ending in laughter and others ending in joyous tears.


Warm wishes and a happy summer.

July And Moving Forward

Hello again,

Well, July is almost over and we have been very busy here at Featherwinds. August is going to be even busier than July, but as always we have time for you. We have several weddings this month so weekends are pretty full, but we still have openings during the week.

We have noticed an increase in weekly bookings. Most of the customers have been saying it is so nice to get-away during the week instead of waiting for the weekend. If you are coming over for the tourisum thing, most places are not as busy during the week as during the weekend. And that is normally a big plus.

If you are coming over to enjoy the area for hikes, horseback riding, walks or simply to get away to somewhere nice and quiet, mid-week accommodations seem to be the best time.

Whichever you prefer, weekends or mid-week, we are here for you. Remember, if you book at The Inn or at the B & B, you receive a full breakfast! And I do mean a full breakfast. A wonderful Dutch Apple Baby with ham or maybe a Custard French Toast with sausage.
Either way, a full breakfast is a great way to start your day at Featherwinds.

Hope to see you here soon!

Warm wishes.

WE MOVED OUR BLOG

FLASH: A note from our IT crew.
We have moved our blog to our server. We will still be using blogger.com for our updates, but you will find our blog at:

We will be using the blog for lodging and wedding specials, quick notes, and any specials we are running. Remember, most of our specials are time limited. So, when you see a special you want in on, be sure and contact us ASAP.
The staff, here at Featherwinds, hope this will make your blogging easier. If you have any questions regarding our blog, please leave us a comment.
Thank you and warm wishes,

2006 Wedding Show

Flash: We have selected our booth for the Seattle 2006 Wedding Show!

We have increased our booth size and changed the location. This year the floor plan for the wedding show has changed slightly. I understand they will be using a different area for the 2006 wedding show. The changes will be great. New floor plan layout and design should make it easier for visitors to see all the booths. The floor plan features a easier and more direct walk thru, less crowding in the walk ways and more room to visit with booth attendents.

We hope to see all of you there! We are filling up our weekends quickly for weddings in 2006. If you are considering having your wedding destination at Featherwinds please be sure to check out our wedding webpage and make an appointment to speak with our wedding cooridinators.


Thank you and warm wishes,

Dinner Honoring..........

This week Featherwinds Lodging, LLC will be hosting a dinner for the Chelan County Firemen (and women) of District 9 Station 3. This is very much and honor for us here at Feathewinds. We greatly appreciate all of the hard work these fire fighters do for our community.
