  • Samuel Riggs Alumni Center was such an outstanding picturesque space. Rhonda Whyte and Brittany Pain were so amazing, patient and warm. This was Brittany's first wedding and she made sure that whatever we needed was provided. We could not tell that this was her first time taking the lead. Her warm and welcoming demeanor during the whole process of planning and day of was incredible. We couldn't ask for anything more. We couldn't have picked a better place to start our journey together.
