    Felt Like a Dream...

    In the marathon that is wedding planning today, we cannot thank Rock Island Lake Club enough. When we began planning our wedding we were focused on only two components; rustic and home'y in nature and amazing food. Our needs were exceeded beyond all expectations with Rock Island. From the moment we walked through the doors to tour the building we felt like we were home. The kindness and the support of the staff is unmatched. There are so many aspects to touch on... the amazing staff, the beautiful venue and grounds, the DELICIOUS food, the endless options to make your reception truly yours... there isn't time enough to accurately describe how great all of these things are at Rock Island. Our guests have been raving non stop about our venue, the staff, the food, etc. etc. We cannot recommend them enough and we cannot thank them enough for everything they did to make our wedding as amazing as it was.

    An Absolute Dream

    My husband and I fell in love with Rock Island the moment we walked through the doors. The venue is so beautiful and so unique with an incredible balance of indoor and outdoor space. From our first interactions with the staff at Rock Island all the way through until the end of the wedding day (and even afterwards!), we felt that each person we met was genuinely hoping to help make our wedding day the best day ever. They did not disappoint. Becca (event coordinator) is the most incredible human and communicated so kindly, professionally, and promptly throughout the entire process. We also want to make mention of Billie (bridal attendant), Amanda (event coordinator), and Jillian (maitre d’). Each and every one of them was lovely and played an important part in making our wedding day such a success. Our guests have not stopped raving over the cocktail hour, the beautiful venue, and the attentiveness and kindness of the staff at Rock Island. So many of our guests have told us that it’s the best wedding they’ve ever attended, and (obviously!) we’d have to agree. Our wedding day was an absolute dream and we wish we could do it over and over and over. Rock Island Lake Club is THE best and we’ll never run out of wonderful things to say about them.
