Owner Robin Jones has been a certified wedding planner for years. While working with other venues before owning Riverside Event Center, she realized that they had strict rules and only cared about money. To combat this, she and her husband opened Riverside so that couples could still plan a one-of-a-kind wedding without having to worry about the budget.
