With the last wedding of 2016 under our belt, we can’t help but to take this time and look back on the amazing year we had. Rock Island Lake Club celebrated 140 weddings in 2016, each one as memorable as the next! The warm and verdant summer and colorful fall being our busiest seasons with 18 weddings each month!
Each and every one of our weddings were individually special and brought in some of the latest trends. Sunflowers were this year’s summer and fall flower of choice, and incorporating blues into wedding themes was a must! Naked cakes were a huge hit, using a “less is more” mentality to really bring beauty to the cake. During ceremonies when ring bearers and flower girls were too young to walk on their own, wagons and electric mini cars would join the procession! And how could you tie the knot without actually tying a knot? A knot tying ceremony, along with many other unity rituals, put a romantic and unique twist on your traditional exchanging of vows.
The most common upgrade was our uplighting package helping to set the perfect mood for a night of dinner and dancing. The second most common upgrade was the balcony suite package which gave us some extra time each wedding day to spend with our beautiful brides & grooms!
Looking forward, Rock Island Lake Club will get its routine nip-tuck over the next six weeks to keep us looking young and fresh faced. Rock Island will also be welcoming a new member to the family: Bear Brook Valley, a beautiful venue tucked away in the scenic valley of Fredon, New Jersey.
Rock Island Lake Club would not have been as successful in 2016 if it weren’t for everyone who helped made this year as amazing as it was. This family continues to grow, and continues to share a little magic with every couple that walks in its doors. We are so happy we could be there for all 140 “I Do’s” and to have helped made all of your happily ever afters come true.
