The best around and took away all my stress
Emerald Event Center was not only beautiful, but the staff made our wedding an amazing experience, starting day one when we toured the venue all the way through the next morning as we said goodbye to our guests. They were so flexible and worked hard to make every guest feel welcomed and important. Shannon was a blessing and we were thrilled to work with her!Sent on 09/15/2019

Wedding of my dreams!
I can’t say enough amazing things about the Emerald room and our event planner Shannon! Everything I could ever imagine was put into place to make my wedding exactly how I envisioned it to be. It was so nice to have Shannon help with honestly everything, she gave great input and recommendations, helped with the set up of both our ceremony and reception, and overall put my mind at ease that she could handle anything brought upon her. The venue is beautiful, providing literally everything you could think of to make a perfect wedding. The food was awesome, the staff was attentive and helpful, and ever wish within reason was granted. If you want to have a beautiful wedding with a great supportive staff that provides everything you need then book your wedding with the Emerald Event Center!Sent on 08/08/2019

We enjoyed every part of the process while working with Shannon Besenfelder. Her responsiveness and level of detail as we planned our wedding reception were unmatched. We loved the food tasting which included us and 4 guests, and the included honeymoon suite was an added bonus. The venue itself was beautiful and I know we will continue receiving compliments from our guests on the food, service, and the space itself. The staff was pleasant to work with and we also enjoyed the flexibility in the upgrades we chose (for example we were able to upgrade the chairs only at the head table and keep all other chairs the standard). Shannon did a great job placing our decor items we provided along with the included ones we used from the venue, and the staff packed everything up for us so we could relax at the end of the night. Overall - great experience and we are so happy with how smoothly the whole process went! Highly recommend the Emerald Event Center if you’re looking for an easy, all-inclusive package with the ability to customize options to your liking.Sent on 06/20/2019
