The Adelman’s

November 17, 2012 by Cheryl Farruggia

On a picture perfect fall afternoon David and Carol Adelman exchanged vows in front of both of their loving families.  The beautiful couple were married on November 10, 2012.  Both David and Carol come from families with memorable traditions and were able to melded both their family traditions into a unique and beautiful wedding.  The Rabi preformed the Jewish ceremony and incorporated Carol’s Philippine custom of the wrapping of the veil and cord of 8.  We were so touched by the love and admiration of this handsome couple and their families.

Best Wishes to The Adelman’s

Spring has Finally Arrived!

March 21, 2010 by Cheryl Farruggia

The days are getting longer and the weather is warming up. That can only mean one thing – spring is here! We’re already busy preparing the garden for our wonderful guests to enjoy.
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.
Relax in our screened-in gazebo with views of our beautiful garden. This is a popular site of many engagements and weddings we’ve been honored to host.
Take in the smells and admire the beauty of a variety of flowers that grow in our garden.
When the sun sets, pop open a bottle of wine and savor the warmth of our fire pit. Cozy and romantic!

We’re excited to share the beauty of our garden and hope you visit soon!

A moment in time…

February 15, 2010 by Cheryl Farruggia

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.
