History
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.

    Wonderful Venue and Wonderful People!

    We can't say enough about how thankful we are that we chose Riverside for our wedding! The venue is beautiful inside and out and the location is AMAZING! On top of that, Robin is an absolute joy to work with and an expert wedding coordinator! Robin and Calyssa took care of us the day of our wedding so we could simply relax and enjoy it all! Thank you, thank you, thank you Robin, Calyssa, and Riverside!!

    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!
