We held our October 2014 wedding at Eagle Ridge, and couldn't be happier we chose this venue. We planned from afar (Boston), and the wedding coordinator, Megan, made us feel 100% at ease regarding the details of the big day. She was quick to respond to emails and phone calls, and went above and beyond to make the wedding day flow smoothly (this included everything from coordinating with our vendors to coming to the rescue with a sewing kit when I ripped the train of my gown). The front desk staff, bartenders, and servers were incredibly friendly and helpful -- several out of town guests commented on the Midwestern hospitality. The food was fantastic, including the wedding meal, next day brunch, and on-site restaurants. Finally, the setting was absolutely gorgeous. The fall foliage was unbelievable and we were very happy with everything from the guest rooms/homes to the ballroom. Highly recommend Eagle Ridge for your big day!

We had our reception in the ballroom and it was breathtaking! Megan went out of her way to help us with the little details and everything came out flawlessly, just how I imagined! The grounds are beautiful, our friends/family all got huge houses on the property and made vacations out of it. It was so great to celebrate over a few days and be with family you don't get to see very often. The staff were all more than helpful, from the bellboy who was always available and willing to give a helping hand to the front desk staff who were so friendly to us and our guests (even at 2am). Thank you to everyone!

The moment my husband and I visited Eagle Ridge and met with Angie for the first time, we knew it was going to be the place to hold our wedding reception. We chose Eagle Ridge not only for it’s beautiful views (filled with green trees overlooking the lake) and large ballroom layout, but because we knew collaborating with Angie would be fun and easy, and it was! Throughout the wedding planning process Angie was very responsive. Living in the Chicago land area, I relied heavily on email when contacting vendors. I was constantly emailing Angie with various inquiries and she was always quick to respond answering all my questions. Eagle Ridge even allowed us to bring in a lot of our own supplies (which at a lot of venues, is a big no no). My mother made table runners for every table, we brought mason jars with candles for the patio, and various other things such as additional candle votives (we were allowed to bring our own rather than renting them through Eagle Ridge) and a bottle of vintage champagne my husband surprised me with. The day of the wedding was amazing. Everything went smoothly and according to plan. Angie and her team were there to assist with everything. I’m still receiving compliments from guests saying it was the most beautiful wedding they’ve ever been to. The only complaint I have is the price. We thought having our wedding in Galena rather than Chicago would save us money, and it really didn't. However, it was more beautiful and country chic than any chicago venue or suburb could provide. If you are thinking of having your wedding at Eagle Ridge, do it! It is a unique setting and Angie is so fun to work with. Thanks Eagle Ridge for an unforgettable wedding for my guests and I!

By the way, I also had my hair done by girls at the spa and it turned out great! All my bridesmaids loved theirs too.

The original block of reserved rooms was not enough and management worked with us on this. The manager at Woodstone (rehearsal dinner) was very flexible and offered helpful suggestions and input - the event was lovely! The bridal coordinator for our wedding at the Inn was very efficient and on top of everything, also provided calm assurance when the arbor blew over ruining our flowers - she put together some replacements for us! She was also on the line to get a DJ for us when our band was later than expected to set up (they came). We also had a breakfast and everything was set up beautifully for us, including all of our flowers arranged and lovely green tablecloths.

We had our rehearsal dinner, ceremony and reception at Eagle Ridge in October 2014. The natural beauty of the resort and the view from the Point Patio cannot be out done. The coordinators at the facility, Megan and Kelsey were top notch, available to answer questions and offer their expert opinions on everything from seating to timeline. We heard from numerous guests (and we agree) the food was superb-no steroypical wedding chicken or bland sides here. We served our guests steak, scallop and salmon pinwheels or vegetarian lasagna. All food and appetizers served during our cocktail hour received rave reviews. Our guests also utilized the other resort amenities and had only positive things to say. If you're looking for a getaway location where all your guests can feel like they are on vacation as well as enjoying your wedding celebration, Eagle Ridge is the right place.

We had our rehearsal dinner, ceremony and reception at Eagle Ridge in October 2014. The natural beauty of the resort and the view from the Point Patio cannot be out done. The coordinators at the facility, Megan and Kelsey were top notch, available to answer questions and offer their expert opinions on everything from seating to timeline. We heard from numerous guests (and we agree) the food was superb-no steroypical wedding chicken or bland sides here. We served our guests steak, scallop and salmon pinwheels or vegetarian lasagna. All food and appetizers served during our cocktail hour received rave reviews. Our guests also utilized the other resort amenities and had only positive things to say. If you're looking for a getaway location where all your guests can feel like they are on vacation as well as enjoying your wedding celebration, Eagle Ridge is the right place. Read less

Our wedding was beautiful at Eagle Ridge! I've vacationed at this resort since I was young and it was the clear choice when planning my wedding. The prices are a little high for the area but well worth it. I did use an outside lighting vendor instead of their in house decorations which helped with the cost. Over all this resort is beautiful and will provide an amazing wedding for you!
