Recommendations & Testimonials

September 3, 2017

The entire experience at Eagle Ridge was absolutely phenomenal for our wedding. We made several visits to Eagle Ridge during the planning phase and they were all phenomenal. We worked with three different wedding planners at Eagle Ridge, all of which were phenomenal, especially Maggie Truppa. We had our wedding downtown in Grant Park and our reception in the main ballroom back at Eagle Ridge. The customer service at Eagle Ridge is first class. We rented their signature home #604 for the welcome party and that was wonderful. The bellman repeatedly came out to deliver ice and fresh towels and pick up any garbage. The reception couldn't have gone any better. Maggie coordinated everything perfectly with all of our vendors and the night flowed perfectly. I would recommend Eagle Ridge to anyone! Oh and we also had a 60 player golf outing at The General (signature golf course) and they gave us a great rate and treated us awesome. The course was in great shape too!

Good service, GREAT location, it was nice to have a one stop shop since we were out of towners. The deck was the perfect place for our small ceremony and the food was top notch! There were a few things that didn't go as planned, but overall - I would recommend it!

After the scenic drive from the suburbs to Galena, I was excited, but seeing the scenic view from the ceremony & reception ballroom, I was sold! The coordinator, Megan, was absolutely fabulous! There are not enough kind things to say about her and her eagerness to make the day perfect! She made the whole experience easy and enjoyable. Can't say the same about everyone on the eagle ridge staff but really who can? The overall experience was flawless and truly the best day ever!!! Just a tip: be sure to remind them to open the blinds all the way if that's what you want. Day of I wasn't paying attention to the windows but after getting my photos back they are hard to miss.

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.
