Best wedding ever

This venue made every single one of our wedding dreams come true! Yassmin and Val both went above and beyond to make our day epic! From allowing us to do stations for dinner (including a Puerto Rican station with recipes from my husbands family) to surprising us with 4 different kinds of churros which our guests are still talking about! They also allowed us to do a margarita machine for our signature drink! Multiple guests came up to us and told us it was the best wedding food they had ever had ! The venue is also attached to the beautiful hyatt! The hotel and staff also take this venue to the next level every single employee rolled out the red carpet for myself and the guests that traveled to come to our wedding and don鈥檛 get me started on the huge bridal suite that was stocked with my favorite drinks and snacks! If you鈥檙e thinking of booking this venue I truly can鈥檛 express into words how much I recommend it just ask my husband and I or any one of our guests!

Date Night Event

I hosted a date night event with Riverfront Events and it was perfect! The venue was easy to work with, and all of the staff responded quickly. The food was delicious, we had the potato and salad bar, which I would highly recommend because everyone loved it! The venue was stunning, it was perfect in every way!
