    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!

    The best ever

    Having a wedding during a pandemic couldn’t have happened without the this amazing venue. The Riverfront is an amazing venue with GOOD food(very important!)I had the opportunity to work with Abby at this venue and from the first day of consultation to the day off, she had all the answers I needed for my event. Abby would check in and follow up with information every time and she did it with a smile. Even on the day of the event she was very helpful during the set up process. Aside from this venue being very beautiful Abby definitely made the experience worthwhile for me and my couple.
