New to the Best Western Premier Waterfront Hotel & Convention Center family, I fell in love with event planning during my days working for a professional baseball team. I take pride in creating an event that is completely memorable and unique to you. There is truly nothing that compares to the opprotunity to help make your dreams a reality while being apart of your special day.
Here at the Best Western Premier Waterfront we offer a unique venue that allows your personalities to shine!
