Wedding Venue Feature | Quad Cities Vineyard Wedding Venue

A few months ago, I had the pleasure of meeting Jen Mital of Creekside Vineyards in Coal Valley. We met at a networking event and didn’t have much time to chat so we sat down and had appetizers about a month later. It was such a pleasure getting to her and her family’s business, Creekside Vineyards and Inn! I just knew that I had to blast this hidden gem in the Quad Cities. It’s absolutely beautiful and I can’t wait for you to get to know more about Creekside!
