Absolutely perfect venue!!!
Planning a wedding through Covid, you would think be a nightmare. Kelly made the experience so enjoyable and so much less stressful than I expected. Kelly was fantastic figuring out ways to keep the wedding elegant even while following safety protocols from the state. She listened to my ideas and did everything she could to make our wedding perfect. She truly cared about making our day special and personal. The venue was stunning and the food was great. Perfect is an understatement for how great this venue was.Sent on 09/25/2020

Excellent Experience - Highly Recommend!
Emerald Event Center was the absolute perfect location for our wedding. The staff was incredible from day 1. Of course, our wedding was during the pandemic and we had to postpone. Kelly Arthur and her team pivoted with me every step of the way. She was just as excited (with good news) and sad (with bad news) for me every step of the way and I will never forget that. When we pulled up to EEC on our wedding day, I saw her and said, "there is my girl!" with a huge smile on my face. She was so sweet to give us a personalized gift which means I know she listened to me talk about my dog multiple times :). The day of the wedding (at 3pm, while we were in church getting married), the governor put restrictions on alcohol and closed all bars across the state early. They were very kind and flexible and had little surprises to make it better! The food was great, the staff was amazing, and the overall experience will NEVER be forgotten. I highly recommend! You know they love what they do - it's more than just a job for them.Sent on 08/12/2020
