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

Speechless is the only word we can think of right now because Rock Island left us completely in awe. We could cry all over again writing this review. The second we walked into Rock Island and Heather showed us around we knew we had to get married at this absolutely stunning venue. Everything about it is absolutely perfect from the beautiful scenery to the stunning inside.Sent on 11/17/2019
From the minute we booked Rock Island, Heather and Karly kept In constant contact with us ensuring that every single detail was taken care of and that we would have nothing to worry about come our wedding day. This venue has an incredible amount of weddings every single week, yet they made us feel as if we were the only ones getting married there. Their attention to detail, genuine care and love for you, organization, and understanding, were immeasurable. Each meeting we had with Heather and Karly and the staff made us more and more at ease with our wedding.
Upon getting to Rock Island for our wedding day, we were greeted with smiles, and amazing people ready and willing to do whatever we needed to ensure our day was perfect. Kellie, the bridal attendant is absolutely phenomenal. She made sure that myself and all the girls in the bridal suite were enjoying our time, that we had food to eat, and drinks in our hand. She could not have been more helpful. Throughout the whole day she was holding my dress train to make sure that it didn’t get dirty and followed me around to help me whenever I needed it. She was calm, passionate, dedicated, professional, and all around the most perfect bridal attendant I could have ever asked for!
Mike was beyond words. Mike assured that Greg and I and also our guests were completely happy and satisfied at all times. He set aside good for Greg and I to eat knowing that we would not get much of a chance to eat. While we were eating dinner he continued to check in on us to make sure we ate enough and to get us anything we needed. Mike is incredibly kind, dedicated, passionate, and truly one of the hardest working people we have ever known. By the end of the night he feels like the brother you never had!
Like I said, words can truly not do this venue justice. Their service was immeasurable, their kindness and caring was unexplainable, and their love for each couple that walks through the door is admirable. Rock Island, and all the staff, thank you truly from the bottom of our hearts for the most perfect day we could have ever asked for. It was better than anything we could have ever dreamed of. If you are getting married I cannot recommend this venue enough. After getting married here, I could not see why anyone would get married anywhere else. Rock Island, WE LOVE YOU!!

Best. Day. Ever!
I honestly don't know where to begin...the scenic backdrop to our ceremony, the endless cocktail hour AND A HALF, and a fantastic banquet space upstairs made our wedding day the best day of our lives. From our initial meeting, we were blown away at the options to choose from for the cocktail hour, dinner, and bar. We still get compliments on the food from our wedding! The all-included package is honestly the best part, and having Heather as our coordinator made planning the entire day a piece-of-cake. She was quick to respond to emails, and every idea we had she took all of the pieces (photographer, florist, musicians, rehearsal) and put it al together. The day-of, the RILC staff helped us out every moment. Having the bride and groom suites to get ready in at the venue made the morning a lot less stressful! Since they only have one wedding per day, they allowed us to transform the space into our own personalized celebration of "us", which was truly amazing...our guests say that it felt like coming home, which we loved! Mike, the maitre-d, was absolutely fantastic. He ran everything behind-the-scenes to make sure the day went smoothly, while also attending to us and making sure we had everything we needed. Hands down, RILC was the simply the best decision we could've made!Sent on 01/02/2020
