Kirby & Rob NYE Wedding - Thank You!
“Had we not chosen Rock Island for our venue, nothing else for this wedding would have come together. It would not have been perfect. Rock Island started it all.” My husband said this to me the morning after our wedding – he couldn’t have summed up my feelings any better. After getting engaged we booked a tour at Rock Island very last minute. We were in the area, figuring why not, it can’t hurt. Instantly we were greeted with warmth and love. Within 10 minutes of showing up we were joking and laughing with staff as if everyone were old friends reuniting. When we told them about our black tie New Year’s Eve idea as a theme for the wedding everyone was instantly hooked. We signed the contract that day – there was no need to think about it, there was no need to look elsewhere. We had found the spot.Sent on 01/29/2019
Heather. The most amazing planner, coordinator, and person out there. She kept me sane throughout this entire process, worked around my hectic medical school schedule, answered the billion emails I sent regularly and still found it in her heart to laugh, joke, and share stories with us at our meetings. Heather made sure that we knew the timeline to get things done in, she helped schedule meetings, she went above and beyond to create the vision we had for our wedding – she far exceeded our expectations. Heather is the BEST in this business. There is no question.
Mike. What can I say about Mike? I’m pretty certain that he is the most genuine person I have ever met. My wedding day was perfect because of Mike. I certainly didn’t have any time to forget to eat because Mike was filling my plate, and glass for that matter! He helped my brother set up his guitar and equipment to play a special song for my father/daughter dance without hesitation. He made sure that not only Rob and I were taken care of but that our guests with severe food allergies knew exactly what they could and couldn’t eat. He found me a fan when I was dying of heat in my puffy dress and laughed with me as I stood outside in the rain to cool down. He went out of his way to find me a rack of lamb for dinner that I had wanted more than anything. All of these things, Mike did without being asked. He just knew.
Jack. Before I could finish a sentence to ask for something, Jack was placing it down onto the table. He went out of his way to make sure Rob and I had everything we could ever want, as well as going out of his way to make sure my Mom was well taken care of. Jack even helped us at the end of the night to pack up whatever gifts and cards we had, and made sure we had some pizzas for the road too!
The bottom line is that Rock Island started out as just a wedding venue for us, but by the end turned into so much more. I feel like we have become part of the Rock Island family. These are people I want to keep in touch with, people I want to spend more time with in the future, true friends that we can count on. So thank you Heather, Mike, Jack, and the entire rest of the Rock Island Lake Club staff and crew. You gave us the dream we had envisioned and more. We certainly consider you all family now. With love and thanks, Rob & Kirby.

Rock Island is a gorgeous venue and the staff is beyond amazing. Even after having to postpone our wedding, Heather at Rock Island, made us feel so at ease during a time where we were panicking. Truly a welcoming and professional place to work with!!Sent on 04/12/2019

Fairytale wedding of my dreams
There aren't enough words to explain how amazing Rock Island Lake Club is. All the stellar reviews here are true!!Sent on 08/05/2019
Yes, the venue is stunning! The staff is extremely professional and yet personable. Heather, the wedding planner, was always there to help answer any of my ridiculous questions and kept me sane throughout the process helping me find a solution even though everyone else told me it wasn't possible. They truly made me feel like a bride every step of the way.
For reference, I got engaged in February 2019 and got married in July 2019. Although everyone said it was too short to plan a wedding, I had the fairytale wedding of my dreams all thanks for RILC. It was everything I hoped for and more. Everyone still raves about the food/drinks. We're so happy we added the midnight munchies (a must have). They were an unexpected unique wedding favor that left my guests well fed and happy.
The day is still a whirlwind in my mind. It went so fast and I'm still getting little flashbacks of it that I couldn't remember but I just want to thank RICL for making our day so special. And special thanks to Mike and Jessica. You guys were my rock on the day of and kept me the most calm I've ben in my life. That's just how much I grew to trust everyone at RILC. They make you feel like family.
