Updated: Jan 7
Each year, Rock Island Lake Club in NJ takes a couple of months to do some touching up around the venue, like re-staining the floors and tables, putting a fresh coat of paint on the doors, and updating the spaces. Last year, the big update was the silo addition. Although this year's updates aren't quite as big as last year's, the team still made a few small changes that made a big difference! Find out what they've been doing in the off season!
This winter, the ceilings were squared out in the ballroom to make the reception space feel a bit bigger. This also allows the sound to travel more smoothly, gives the room a fresher look, and makes photos look better since the light will no longer get "trapped!"
The Balcony Suite
The most exciting improvement this year is the extended Balcony Suite! Now there is more room for getting ready, dancing, relaxing, and taking photos!!!
The Wedding Package
Everyone's favorite-- the food! The kitchen team came up with some fun and inclusive dishes to add to the menu this year. From a larger vegan selection to new live stations, this might be the best menu yet!
Mini Chicken Pot Pies
Zucchini Fries with Baba Ganoush (vegan)
Latke & Applesauce Bites (vegetarian)
Olive Oil & Bread Bar
Flatbread Pizza Station
Chicken Alia (yes, that is named after your maitre d' Michael Alia)
Milk and Cookie Bar
Some other fun and exciting updates:

The Lakeside Bonfire is now included in all weddings. Add on s'mores for just $100!
