"Eagle Ridge is a beautiful property that provides the perfect backdrop for your destination wedding. What I love most, in addition to the breathtakingly beautiful property, is that regardless of the season, Eagle Ridge is an amazing place not only for wedding ceremonies, but also for the couple's wedding festivities. Eagle Ridge offers a variety of options for events such as rehearsal dinners and farewell brunches."

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 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 stereotypical 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.

"The view alone was perfect but the staff made this so relaxing for me as the bride. They do so many weddings that they can handle anything. I am so glad I had it hear. It was perfect and stress free! Megan Dombek was my planner there. She is amazing! I recommend this place and her to anyone!"

" 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!"

“I want to thank you and the entire staff at Eagle Ridge Resort & Spa for the amazing job you all did. Several of my guests knew their servers and bartenders by name with stories about special things they did. I have heard nothing but rave reviews about the service and food... Matt walked up to the bar for the first time and without having to say a word, the bartender handed Matt a Hinanu (Tahitian Beer) and said, I believe this is what you are looking for.  Throughout the entire process you have not only been a joy to work with, but you have been my rock by being patient through my indecision, steering me when needed and encouraging me when I doubted myself. Thank you so much!!...I already miss working with you!...”

“GREAT reception!!! Thank you for everything. All went very smoothly, and the ballrooms were absolutely beautiful. The dinner was fabulous!! Your staff is to be commended...our guests gave them raving compliments as to how attentive and friendly they were. Friends and family were thrilled with accommodations. I just wish I could turn back the clock and start the reception all over again, and again...”

“Not only was Galena the most scenic and beautiful place, it was worth every moment and memory we created. The resort was more than accommodating; all our guests felt like they were VIPs for the weekend. We reserved a group of houses in the same area and our family and friends had the time of their lives. There were so many activities that our family and friends made a whole vacation out of our wedding weekend.

The personal touches Eagle Ridge provides cannot be matched. The wedding coordinator was amazing!! She had so many unique ideas and with her experience she could really help out with the details. Because of the expertise of the coordinator, I got to do what every bride dreams about, sit back, relax and take it all in. I could go on and on about how the food was amazing, how the staff was superb and how great everyone treated my guests. . . not just focusing on the wedding party but truly on each guest. There's no way I could have had this experience without Eagle Ridge and their staff of professionals. Thank you for making our wedding a true moment in time.”
