Nicole-Just wanted to say THANKS so much for everything in the past year. You have been an awesome help and I don't think I could have done it without you! Especially yesterday, with all the weather changes...Everyone at the resort was awesome and super friendly and helpful. Everyone was very impressed!!!"

"Thank you, Nicole for all that you did for our wedding. It was a perfect day and we couldn't have asked for more. We would (and have) definitely recommended your facility to others for weddings and otherwise. Everyone was so wonderful and accommodating"
-Andrea & Ryan (Bride/Groom) 11/13/10-
"Nicole was wonderful! She is professional, yet very friendly. She responded to each request quickly and effectively. The wait and bar staff were great! Everyone was great that we worked with. The resort has a great group of people working there including the staff at the reception desk. It was a wonderful wedding!"

I wanted to take the time to tell you that you and your staff did a wonderful job on our daughter's wedding. We couldn't have been more pleased. Please give our thanks to the Chef and the service staff for all their efforts. All of our friends and relatives had nothing but kind words about the whole affair. Great Job!"
-Mike (Father of the Bride) 09/04/10-
"This is my official mother of the bride thank you! Nicole's expertise in planning was much appreciated and there are not enough ways to thank her! From the very first conversation with her, we felt that "click" and suspect it is the same for many brides. She encouraged our daughter's creative ideas to make the wedding of her dreams. We enjoyed our initial tasting and decided on a fabulous menu. The food was consistently impressive and the service staff was swift and attentive. All of the staff was very, very helpful like we were the only wedding at the resort all summer. All of our relatives said the same thing that the staff made the difference in their stay. The wedding was simply magical there. I could not be more thankful!"
-Robin (Mother of the Bride) 08/21/10-
Nicole was amazing to work with. She was extremely, organized, efficient and friendly. The day was far beyond my expectations; in addition, the entire team was fabulous-the bartenders, banquet staff, etc... were all friendly and helpful. We received many compliments from our guests about the service and the beauty of the location. I would recommend the resort to others for their wedding or other events. Thank you for a wonderful day! "
-Rebecca (Bride) 08/06/10-
"I just wanted to let you know how pleased were were with the entire wedding weekend. The rehearsal dinner was delicious and the bonfire was a lot of fun. The wedding and reception went off perfectly. Everything was so beautiful! Thank you so much for all of your work. We would definitely recommend you all and will keep you in mind for other functions! Thanks again."
-Sue and Tom (Parents of the Groom) 07/31/10-
Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! My daughter is off and running on her honeymoon, but I wanted to drop you a quick thank you. Everyone was impressed from the site to the service--organization, ceremony, food and all wonder how they found the site! All were impressed. It was absolutely perfect! It was excellent. Thank you!"

"I just wanted to give you a quick thank you for our wedding day. I think it all turned out beautifully and I will highly recommend Illinois Beach Resort to family and friends in the future."
-Jennifer (Bride) 06/26/10-
Our experience with your facility was great! We could not have asked for a better experience! My gluten allergy was well accommodated and made easy by your sales staff and culinary team. Nicole was extremely helpful and was always available when I needed her. Thank you for making our day perfect!"
-Erin (Bride) 07/23/10-
Thank you for all of your help with our daughter's wedding. Everyone at the resort could not have been more helpful, the food was raved about and the kid's were even going after the adult meals ignoring their chicken fingers! I can't think of all the words that describe the perfect wedding that we had on Saturday and it couldn't have been pulled off without the overly helpful /cooperative staff. Thank you again."
-Mary (Mother of the Bride) 06/19/10-
"Thank you for all of your assistance before and leading up to the wedding. Your day-to-day service and willingness to make every accommodation as easy as possible was absolutely wonderful. As for the wedding itself, we could not ask for anything more beautiful. The ceremony could not be more elegant and the reception not more beautiful. You truly made it an easy process and even went the distance with a last minute phone call. Thank you for all the patience you had with us"
-Danielle and Matt (Bride and Groom) 06/06/10-
We are truly thankful and happy with the service that was provided during our stay at the Illinois Beach Resort. Upon arrival on Thursday we were greeted and welcomed by everyone whom we encountered. Even with the other larger event going on that weekend, your entire staff knew about our special day and were more than willing to help us in any way possible. We had the pleasure of working with Nicole during the entire process. From the initial meeting to the final wedding day, she was prompt, courteous and always willing to help. There are so many instances that I can think of that she smoothed over and took control of leaving me not to worry about a thing. I appreciated getting to know her throughout the planning process. We are looking forward to celebrating our anniversaries there over the years!"
-Lindsay and Evan (Bride and Groom) 05/22/10-
I wanted to say THANK YOU for all your help recently. The ceremony
turned out wonderful, everyone told me how beautiful it was, and the
rest of the evening was fabulous as well. All the staff was extremely
helpful and really helped things continue to run smoothly, and the
bonfire was a big hit as well. Thanks again so much, I don't think I
could have made it through without you! It's sad that it's all over,
now I kind of don't know what to do with myself!"
-Melanie (Bride) 5/8/10-
I just wanted to say thank you so much again for everything that you did for Nick and I to make our day so special!! Everything went along perfect and was so beautiful! I was so super happy for everything!"
-Christina (Bride) 04/30/10-
I just wanted to thank you once again for all of your help in the planning of our wedding. You were truly a pleasure to work with and Adam & I feel very strongly you were a major player in making our wedding day such a huge success! Antioch is still talking about the reception, even people I don't know have approached me and said they'd heard about it. You and your staff ran everything so smoothly, efficiently and professionally. You made it very easy on us for sure! The food, oh my, people raved about it, and still are! And, let me tell you, we weren't sure what to expect for breakfast on Sunday. Holy Cow!! It also was fabulous!! The food, the table settings, the centerpieces, the set-up, everything about it was wonderful! It was a great opportunity for us to hang out with our guests and recap the night before.
Again, many, many thanks to you and the ENTIRE IBR staff! If you could please forward this on to them, as well as your management, it would be much appreciated. I know everyone had a hand in the day's success!
-Cheri and Adam (Bride and Groom) 2/27/10-

- Anna O. (Bride) 9/12/09 -
"The Catering Team did a fantastic job answering all 1001 of my questions promptly. The Wedding Sales Manager was very pleasant to work with and always very responsive to questions/changes. I would happily recommend the Illinois Beach Resort based on service alone. It is the perfect place for a wedding! Thanks again for the excellent service!"

Thank you so much for all your help-from making sure the event orders were perfect to running around trying to find the rabbi and dj. It all worked out great. The room was beautiful, the food great, the staff great."
