An Engagement Recipe

August 8, 2012 by Cheryl Farruggia

A bit of perfection is all that you need to begin the proposal of your dreams.  William added a dash of the perfect place, a sprinkle of a perfect moment, a pinch of the perfect time mixed with the woman he loves.  William asked the magic question “Will you marry me” and Robbie said YES.  William and Roberta are our 68th engaged couple to be added to our Dining Room engagement book.

Thank you for choosing The Cloran Mansion as your perfect place!

 

 

She said YES!!

On Friday, July 13th 2012 Joe Deckovich proposed marriage to Lori in the Cloran Mansion Gazebo.

We are so very happy for the beautiful couple.

Lori’s beautiful engagement ring was almost as bright as her smile when she looked at Joe.

Enjoy the tranquility of our pond. Let the sound of the waterfall soothe you while you gaze at our many Koi fish as they elegantly drift back and fourth.

A moment in time…

Alan and Heidi came  to our Galena, Illinois Bed and Brekfast as first time Bed and Breakfast guests on April 18, 2009.  While here they became engaged.   They were our 57th engagement and were added to our special photo album on our mantel.  To our wonderful surprise, shortly after leaving Alan called and asked if we would host their wedding.  We were elated and honored.  The plans were under way for their special day on August, 29, 2009.  It was a beautiful day for this very special couple.  They had the wedding they both wanted with a small reception of family and friends on our grounds.
