Starved Rock Lodge named winner

UTICA – The Starved Rock Lodge has been selected as a 2012 ­­winner in The Knot Best of Weddings, a special section in The Knot Chicago magazine and on the wedding website: The Knot (NYSE: XOXO; www.theknot.com).

The Knot Best of Weddings 2012 provides a “by brides, for brides” guide to the top wedding professionals across the country, and is a must-have when it comes to selecting the best-of-the-best wedding resources. From New York florists and Seattle bridal salons to D.C. makeup artists, engaged couples will find detailed feedback on local wedding businesses reviewed by thousands of newlyweds who had great things to say.

“We are honored to be a part of such an elite group of vendors and would like to thank all the brides and grooms who voted for us,” said Jenny Roulston, sales consultant at the Lodge. Starved Rock Lodge was the venue for 124 weddings in 2011.

There are two outdoor ceremony sites. Receptions and indoor weddings are held in the historic stone-and-log Great Hall, located in the center of the Lodge. The Lodge recently added a Facebook page just for weddings and has set the date for the next “Romance in the Park” Bridal Expo to be Jan. 6, 2013.
