As another year comes to an end, we can't help but think back on all of the amazing couples we worked with and the weddings we celebrated at both Bear Brook Valley and Rock Island Lake Club.
What We Saw
Customization. Each year, what is considered "traditional" changes form as what is unique to the couple takes precedent. And we gotta hand it to you all, you all have amazing visions when it comes to making your wedding truly yours.

Geometric shapes and greenery. The decor we saw was amazing. Where is be small geometric tables numbers with lots of greenery on the tables, or large pieces to act as a backdrop, the decor was amazing. keep it coming!

Love. Above all else, we saw nothing but love. One of the many perks of this industry is the love we get to witness on each and every one of your special days!

What's in store for 2019
Coral. Pantone named coral as the color of the year for 2019 so we can expect to see this incorporated into weddings!
Whimsical and earthy vibes. We can expect to see more greens and gardens in the weddings, whether it's in all of the decor like for centerpieces or in other elements like floral headpieces or even the invites!
"Do it for the 'Gram". Getting the most picturesque (and creative) shots are becoming the norm. Adding in cool effects like smoke bombs to make pictures Insta-worthy, or tricking your fiance during the first look sending out a different member of the wedding party in a wedding dress are becoming a permanent (and fun) part of today's weddings!
A Facelift. Rock Island Lake Club and Bear Brook Valley will be closing down in January and February for its routine maintenance. However, this year, Rock Island will be getting a small expansion to add more lounge space!
As always, we would not be what we are without YOU. Every single one of our couples means the world to us and it means so much that you all have trusted us with one of the most special days! The teams at Rock Island Lake Club and Bear Brook Valley can not send enough thanks to all of our friends, families, vendors, and couples for making 2018 an amazing year. Here's to the year we had, and cheers to what's in store for 2019!
