    Absolutely perfect

    We got engaged at Eagle Ridge (at the waterfall) in 2018 and immediately knew that was where we wanted to get married. We signed our contract by the end of the year and started planning a 250 person May 2020 dream wedding. Spoiler alert: that didn’t happen.
    What DID happen turned out to be even more perfect, thanks to Maggie and the rest of the team at Eagle Ridge. They made the decision to postpone our wedding as painless as possible and Maggie helped us to reimagine our day as it evolved into a 50 person weekend getaway with a reception dinner. Thanks to Maggie we were able to relax that whole weekend and spend quality time with our guests. She helped plan a welcome dinner at the Highlands Restaurant, golf with the groom, a hair and makeup team for 11 of us, lunch and mimosas during our getting ready time, the reception, AND a farewell brunch. Throughout planning and the actual weekend she and her team were very attentive and made sure every detail was taken care of.
    The property itself is gorgeous and has so many amenities to offer for a wedding venue. Our photos around the property turned out beautiful and our guests were so impressed with the scenery on Point Patio, where we had our reception. Our meals were all so delicious, and our guests are still talking about the Sinnablast dessert we got for each table to try- an Eagle Ridge specialty.
    We looked at multiple venues before we initially booked, all in Illinois and all on a golf course. The prices were pretty comparable, but Eagle Ridge had everything we were looking for and we are so glad we decided to have our wedding there!

    Eagle Ridge

    Our experience with Eagle Ridge and with wedding planner Maggie Truppa couldn't have been any smoother. In our case, all the wedding planning took place over the phone as we don't live in the area. Maggie was an absolute joy and coordinated our special day with wonderful vendors. The wedding day was beautiful and all the pieces came together seamlessly. Highly recommend this scenic venue and welcoming staff.
