I had been to a wedding reception at the Event Center before, so as soon as I got engaged, I knew I wanted to have our reception there. From the start, Joey and the rest of the staff were quick to respond, very helpful, and very accommodating. We were able to tour the venue ahead of time, have a food tasting for us and 4 others (which was more like dinner at a fine dining restaurant), and they worked with us to make sure we had the number and type of tables we wanted along with colored choice of linens and our fabulous head table back drop. Also, the dinner was catered directly through them and the food was outstanding! I would highly recommend the Event Center for not only wedding receptions, but for any other big events that need a venue option.

Walking into the event center (when still looking for a venue) I was extremely impressed with venue as well as the representatives professionalism, helpfulness, kindness and willingness to make everything work for us just how we wanted it. They really went above and beyond for all of our requests and last minute ideas. On the big day everything looked amazing! The wait staff that served us were very kind and professional. Working with the event center truly made our lives a little easier for our big day!
