Urban Wedding Venue: Rock Island Lake Club

Say “I do” in style 

By Taylor Smith 

Tucked into the mountains of Sparta in Northwestern New Jersey, Rock Island Lake Club is a wedding venue to remember. With the potential to personalize nearly everything, this is not your traditional banquet facility.

 At the forefront of this venue is the natural setting. Multiple decks lead guests to the sweeping lakefront views, which are dramatic any time of year; however, during autumn, the surrounding foliage really takes center stage. 

Rock Island holds weddings for up to 200 guests. While the majority of ceremonies take place outdoors, the indoor option offers panoramic lake views, natural birch archways, and hardwood floors. Receptions can be held on the outdoor cocktail deck. Following the cocktail hour, guests move into the ballroom for a sit-down dinner reception (dancing included). The bride and groom are able to customize the entire experience, from passed apps, butcher blocks, entrees, artisanal deserts, champagne, flowers, music, and more. The wedding-day experience can also be enhanced by a lakeside bonfire pit with s’mores.
