Tie the Knot in Galena Country

You want the fairy tale. You’ve found “The One.” You’ve said “Yes!” to the dress (a million times over). Now you need to find that perfect, this-is-what-I’ve-always-dreamed-of location. Maybe it’s an emerald landscape overlooking the Mississippi River. Maybe it’s a vineyard. Maybe it’s a 19th-century little white chapel. Whatever you’re wishing for, Galena Country specializes in turning dreams into reality.
