  • Our experience with Eagle Ridge and with wedding planner Maggie Truppa couldn't have been any smoother. In our case, all the wedding planning took place over the phone as we don't live in the area. Maggie was an absolute joy and coordinated our special day with wonderful vendors. The wedding day was beautiful and all the pieces came together seamlessly. Highly recommend this scenic venue and welcoming staff.

  • Maggie and Sasha were both so responsive and helpful during the wedding planning process. With Covid throwing a wrench into what seemed like everything, we were still able to have a wonderful day where our 43 guests felt safe. We had to downsize due to Illinois restrictions and change up seating arrangements and food service, however Maggie still made the day ours! Our guests raved about feeling safe and clean the entire event indoors and outdoors. They loved the food and being able to make weekend getaways themselves in Galena. The bridesmaids loved a spa day while the groomsmen enjoyed a round of golf the day before. We wish covid wasn't around, but were still so glad to celebrate our love in an unexpectedly perfect way at Eagle Ridge!

  • Eagle Ridge has always been a dream venue of mine - but with the help of Lizzy Fahey, our wedding day exceeded my expectations. Lizzy was so helpful with the entire planning process and made sure that all of our questions were answered. The staff at Eagle Ridge was really easy to work with and understood our wedding vision perfectly. Our guests were blown away at the views from the Ballroom and could not stop telling us how amazing the food was. Our wedding day was seriously the best day ever, and we could not picture it anywhere other than Eagle Ridge!

  • Eagle Ridge is the best possible place to be for a wedding in Galena, IL. The views are stunning, the halls are flexible in size, the service is fantastic, the food is delicious! Lizzy Fahey at ER was so helpful and responsive during our planning time and ease all of our worries and fears! I love my mother, but she is sometimes a bit of an overbearing perfectionist and Lizzy was patient and soooo helpful and sweet! This was the best day of my life and I don't think we could have done it anywhere else.

  • Eagle Ridge is the most beautiful place to have a wedding and Megan Carter and Rika Thibodeaux made planning an absolute dream. We had our rehearsal dinner at Woodstone Restaurant, our ceremony at the Point Patio, and our reception in the Eagle Ballroom. There isn't a place on the whole property that doesn't have stunning views. Our guests raved about their accommodations. The villas there are gorgeous and spacious. I knew absolutely nothing when it came to wedding planning, but Megan took me, my husband and our parents by the hand and guided us every step of the way. Eagle Ridge is clearly set up so well for weddings, which was already amazing. They have the classiest materials and decor and all the staff know exactly what they are doing. It's a venue with everything already built in, including the wedding planner. You can customize as much as you want to, or let them do all the work for you (which we chose to go with). They will work directly with your vendors and coordinate every... Read more

  • Maggie at Eagle Ridge has been heaven sent. She responds at the speed of light and will answer any of my million questions with a smile on her face. I cannot recommend this place enough. It's gorgeous, pretty much all inclusive, and all around outstanding. I'm extremely excited to get married at this place!

  • My husband and I recently had our rehearsal dinner at Eagle Ridge Resort, and we were very disappointed with the level of service. We worked with Rika for about a year for our rehearsal dinner, and on the day of the dinner, she wasn't present. This wouldn't have been an issue had she explained who would be our point of contact or at least contacted us to let us know she wouldn't be there. When preparing for the dinner, we were told that we would have two long tables for our dinner of nearly 55 guests. This worked perfectly for us as it would alleviate us having to pick which immediate family members sat with us. However, when we arrived to the dinner, the tables were split into five dining sections. Since Rika wasn't there, we weren't sure who our point of contact was there, so we immediately starting asking servers to put more tables together. Most of them were extremely confused and started telling us no. It was extremely disheartening as we were trying our best to please our family ... Read more

  • Eagle Ridge was wonderful! We rented the Point Patio for our cocktail hour and the ballroom for our reception (married off-site at a church). ER is such a great venue for guests from Chicago - it is a few hours away from the city. We considered this a major PRO because our guests were staying at the resort so no one was worrying about getting home right away and they all had a blast in downtown Galena. Everyone complimented how it was a destination wedding without the flights! :) The venue is beautiful for photos inside and outside too. The food was very good and everyone was raving about our cocktail hour snacks. We rented houses and villas for our families and the wedding party to get ready. In retrospect, I wish we could've toured a couple before deciding because the photos on the website don't show every little detail. Megan Carter (our wedding coordinator at Eagle Ridge) was great - super helpful and organized with all our small details and ideas. Overall, everything went smoot... Read more

  • We did our ceremony and rehearsal here and we had a great time. Things could have been a little more organized and the resort could have been a little more flexible for the ceremony requests we had but it was a great day!
