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.

Stress Free Wedding Day!
LOVED working with Riverside Event Center for my Wedding Ceremony! Robin and her team made the whole experience stress free and perfect! Robin is so well organized and so helpful! The customer service is top notch! Although it rained on my wedding day, it didn't damper the experience at all. The space is beautiful and had plenty of space to do photos inside and a few outside for my January Wedding. I would recommend Riverside Event Center to anyone looking for quality customer service, beautiful location, and wedding expertise!Sent on 03/04/2019

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!
I've had the pleasure of working with Robin at Riverside Events Center. It's a fantastic place for a wedding or any other event. Beautiful property with a very pleasant and hard working staff!
