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.

The Most Amazing Place to Begin Your Next Chapter
What can I say about Rock Island Lake Club? It is absolutely amazing, and you should definitely have your wedding here! Throughout the entire wedding process, Heather and the Rock Island family made us feel so welcome and organized. Heather, our wedding coordinator, would send us reminder emails about the entire process and was cheerful and our ray of sunshine each time we spoke. On our wedding day, the staff took amazing care of bridal party, my family members, and myself, as we got ready at the venue. We never had to ask for anything because our bridal attendant, Carly, was on top of getting us food and drinks in addition to steaming our dresses. Mike, our maître d’ for the evening, took amazing care of my husband and the groomsmen, even wrangling them up when needed. Despite the rainy weather, the staff was prepared and smoothly transitioned our reception to an indoor ceremony space. Jessica, our ceremony coordinator, did a fantastic job ensuring that the ceremony was smooth and looked as beautiful as we could have imagined. During the cocktail hour (and a half), our guests raved about the fantastic food selections and abundance of food throughout the evening. Even with little hiccups along the way, as a result of some of our guests, Mike and the staff at the Rock Island Lake Club handled everything flawlessly. Mike made sure that my husband and I always had something to drink or eat before we even realized that either was needed. The staff did a tremendous job of setting up the room after the indoor ceremony and was attentive to all of our guests. The photo booth was a huge hit with our guests in addition to the pizzas at the end of the night! Our guests have been talking about how our wedding was the best one that they have ever been to! We wish that we could go back and relive that day or, at the very least, attend many, many weddings there in the future. Thank you for everything, Rock Island family!Sent on 04/30/2019
