"Absolutely amazing! Just got married here a couple days ago and I was so impressed. Robin and staff went above and beyond for us to make sure everything was perfect. They made sure we were prepared for everything. Overall this place exceeded my Expectations and with Robin’s open mindedness and experience as a wedding planner they can bring everyone's dream wedding come to life!!!"

Riverside was an amazing venue that saw to all of the needs of the wedding party. Even some things we didn’t think about. They were patient and understanding with us and let us take all the time we needed to tweak little things so that everything was perfect.
Would definitely recommend to others!

About Us

MY NAME IS Robin Jones

I am one of the owners of Riverside Event Center. I am a certified wedding planner and for years I was going to many different venues, most of which had strict rules and only cared about money. So a year ago me and my husband bought our own venue to help brides have the wedding of their dreams without going into debt. We hope to have the opportunity to work with you and give you the wedding you have been dreaming of since you were a little girl. 

We Photographed a wedding at Riverside Event Center yesterday, not only was the venue absolutely beautiful with an amazing view of Chimney Rock, Robin and her staff was amazing to work with. They not only looked out for the bride and groom but for all the guests as well as the vendors.  This venue is very highly recommended, hope to have the opportunity to photograph many more weddings here in the future! ♡
