    Perfect Day

    This venue was amazing. They handled everything and even were able to seamlessly adapt to last minute storms to bring our event inside. We could not have asked for a better venue or a nicer staff. Yassmin, Austin, Tina, and Val were with us every step of the way on our wedding day, taking care of everything. And Chef Mike made food that people could not stop talking about. We have always heard from people that got married that they didnt get to eat or drink anything during their wedding, but the team made sure we could enjoy the amazing food that we choose. The decorations and set up exceeded our expectations. They made the entire process much less stressful

    Wedding ceremony and reception

    We are thrilled beyond words to have celebrated our special WEDDING DAY at the Riverfront Events!
    Abigail Lewis, Sales and Event Manager, could not have done anything more for us leading up to and on our WEDDING DAY.
    Including the Rehearsal arranged by Abigail. She could not be there assured us Sarah Timmons, Director of Sales and Events would meet with us for Rehearsal. Sure, enough she did and recorded all of my questions and communicated every aspect. We had some guests with strict diet needs not on the menu. Thank you goes out to Mike Sheridan, Executive Chef. He clearly arranged with no hesitation to meet diet needs for our guests. The catering arrangements with Riverfront Events and Big Fish Grill was the best ever for us and our guests. We often go to the Big Fish Grill and extremely satisfied with the menu, and especially for our Wedding day! Everyone applauded the Riverfront Event, Big Fish Grill, and Hyatt Place. You never had to leave the location. They had everything for us!
    Due to COVID-19 the entire location was heavenly cleaned and managed to exercise social distances for our ceremony and dining arrangements for the entire wedding.
    We blocked many rooms at the Hyatt Place connected to the Riverfront Events. They all worked together as team work and fulfilled all of our needs. We are hoping to go back to the Riverfront Events for a special occasion without hesitation! We will book the next family event at the same location if the opportunity applies to us, in the near future:)!
    Thank you, thank you and thank you, Abby and crew!
