Owner Robin Jones has been a certified wedding planner for years. While working with other venues before owning Riverside Event Center, she realized that they had strict rules and only cared about money. To combat this, she and her husband opened Riverside so that couples could still plan a one-of-a-kind wedding without having to worry about the budget.

Working with Robin and Calyssa has been the highlight of our wedding planning process. The venue itself is perfect in terms of size, ceremony options, views, decor, and adaptability. All that paired with Robin and Calyssa's extensive wedding planning experience make Riverside a dream place to get married. Every step of the process was smooth, professional, friendly, and relieving knowing we were in good hands. Rather than pump out the same event over and over, they go to great lengths to make each event unique and special. I cannot recommend them enough!Sent on 12/10/2020

Riverside Event Center's reply:Thank you so much Leann and Justin, we appreciate the kind words. We so enjoyed getting to know you and meet your families. I feel we have made new lasting friendships.
Had the pleasure photographing Alex and Jazmins wedding here. Beautiful venue and with a scenic view of chimney rock off the back deck! Robin and her staff were very friendly and professional. They did a fantastic job decorating and catering the food in. Anyone who wants a classy venue with professional service look no further!
