We were married in Galena on Dec. 17th, the wedding plans went so smoothly due to Deb and Theresa! (A MILLION THANKS) How wonderful it was working with them, we had no worries. We arrived on Friday, gave them the information they needed and they took care of all the details! The ballroom was beautiful!
Originally, we had a small room reserved on the lower level, however due to a flood this year we had to change our location to the ballroom. We thought it would be too large for 50 guest, however it turned out delightfully well, gave us more room to walk around. We also had a small room located right off of the ballroom for a bar and appetizer set up. The food for the wedding was superb the chicken pot pie soup- awesome! Filet and Basil Chicken combo; so tender you could use a butter knife to cut! Deb had also requested the Christmas Carolers to enter our room and sing some songs for our guest, everyone sang along! (This was another request of ours – fulfilled!) Our hotel room was amazing #213 overlooking the stairs on Main Street which were lit with the luminary! We plan on celebrating our wedding anniversary here every year! It was great for the family, right in town walking distance and a parking garage. The staff is always friendly, they go above and beyond at all times. Most hotels should complete this task! This is the place to stay when in Galena; we always have and always will. We are pleased we made this choice to hold our reception here. So ladies looking for a wonderful place to hold your wedding? Defiantly this IS the place! As they would say in the 1800’s -“What a grand gala!”
