Don't walk, run to this venue and book your date now! My husband and I booked this venue 18 months in advance and I'm so happy we chose RILC. From the first moment we walked in the door, we knew we wanted to book RILC. We did our due diligence and saw other venues, but no matter how many we saw, we both knew that RILC was the one. Heather, Jason, Lisa, Perry, and Michele are amazing in the every sense of the word. Heather was my first point of contact at RILC and the friendliest face you could imagine. would email every few months to check in with us and make sure we were on track with everything wedding related. I planned my NJ wedding from Boston and her prompt answers/emails were very comforting. We met Jason on our last consultation before the wedding. He walked us through the entire day, told us how everything would be going down and made sure we felt that every question/concern was addressed. Throughout the day he was at every important moment without making it seem like he was hovering. I appreciated my experience with Lisa because she would email every time she got one of my checks and the money would be gone within days. Perry felt more like a friend at the end of everything. There were so many times I would just drop by RILC and walk around the outside to show a friend, he would see me and invite me in show them the rest! He always greeted me with a hug and friendly conversation. The day of my wedding he was in full staff gear helping out during cocktail hour, I barely recognized him. Lastly, his wonderful wife Michele helped my Matron of Honor bustle my dress. Definitely not something she had to do but it shows you how caring this staff truly is from top to bottom. I didn’t even get a chance to rave the food. THE FOOD! Endless compliments from all my guests about the food. The amount of food there was ridiculously amazing. My only hope is that I can get to be invited as a guest to RILC to be able to enjoy the whole experience again.

The BEST wedding venue!
My husband and I found Rock Island through online searches when looking for a wedding venue. After our initial visit we were IN LOVE with the venue, the location, and the staff. We continued to keep an open mind as we were nervous about spending so much money on one day however that was time wasted. Rock Island is THE PLACE to have your wedding. We visited Rock Island three times before committing to 10/21/18 and we could not be happier with our decision. Rock Island Lake Club takes care of almost everything, Heather our wedding coordinator was extremely responsive to our e-mails and super helpful with planning the wedding and sorting out little details in the weeks and days leading up to it. People say planning a wedding is difficult, Heather and the staff at Rock Island made it seamless. Mike, our maître’d for the day was like having a super fun and chill friend hang out with us with his top priority being if we were fed, happy, and having a good time. It was a brisk fall day and Mike even gave me his jacket while we were outside for pictures so I wouldn’t freeze before the ceremony, he had drinks ready for us after the ceremony, and a plate of food from cocktail hour waiting for us. My girls and I got ready at Rock Island and the groom and his friends had the lounge package, we were all fed and taken care of all day. My bridal suite attendant was a dream, she steamed dresses and the guy’s shirts, took care of me all day, carried my change of shoes, bustled my dress, slipped my veil in and out; there were times when I didn’t notice she was even there, but sure enough she was, seeing if I needed anything. The food for cocktail hour and the reception was amazing, people were talking about how much of it and how good the food was the night of and well after. The package Rock Island offers to couples is unbeatable and the attention they give each wedding makes it feel like you truly are the only people in the world who are getting married and you’re all that matter. If anything went wrong the day of the wedding I have no idea; from the ceremony coordinator to the waiter who took care of us at the sweetheart table everyone knew how to pull off a dream wedding. We have had multiple people tell us it was the best wedding they have ever been to and I truly hope that I one day get to be a guest at a Rock Island Wedding.Sent on 01/03/2019

An absolute dream wedding venue!
From the moment we took our first tour with Perry at Rock Island, my husband and I felt a sense of comfort. Throughout the entire wedding planning process, we truly felt the passion and love everyone on staff feels for their job. They know your wedding details inside and out, make your day feel completely special and unique and go above and beyond on the day of to make sure everything is seamless and perfect.Sent on 01/03/2019
The venue itself is gorgeous. It has an understated elegance with a rustic, but not barn, feel. We loved the Tuscan farm tables and wood floor ballroom. It doesn't look like your typical wedding venue.
Heather, our wedding coordinator, is so sweet and easy to talk to, on top of being incredibly organized and communicative. Any couple would be lucky to work with her.
Mike, our maitre d', was an invaluable right-hand man the day of our wedding. I needed a safety pin and mentioned it in passing and not even a minute later he had one. He checked up on us to make sure we ate, had time to ourselves and were able to absorb everything around us. I can't imagine the day without him.
And don't even get me started on the food! It is DELICIOUS, and the cocktail hour is massive and gives you so many selections to really shape the wedding how YOU envision it.
Between the gorgeous venue, impeccable staff and delicious food, we couldn't have asked for a more perfect place to get married. We would recommend this place a thousand times over.
