Awesome experience doing my wedding at the Riggs! Beautiful place that can accommodate any size wedding! Also, I would like to shout out Cassie who was our event coordinator for our wedding, she was so easy to work with, super helpful, and very patient with my wife and I, we couldn't have asked for a better person to help us that day! Overall my experience with the Riggs was outstanding and I would definitely do another party here in the near future!
