  • The people at E.E.C. were incredibly friendly and helpful. They were also very accommodating, as we had a "Covid" wedding and constantly had to make changes. We requested a Vegetarian only menu. The Chef came up with a unique (& fabulous) menu. Shannon, our coordinator took care of everything on our wedding day. I didn't have to worry about setting up a single decoration. She made it beautiful and exactly how I envisioned. We initially thought we didn't want a "hotel" for our venue. But I am so glad we went this route. Neither the ceremony or reception rooms, had a hotel/conference room feel. And the convenience of having our honeymoon suite 50 yards away, couldn't be beat!

  • 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.

  • 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... Read more

  • 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!

  • 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!

    Mackenzie and Kevin, Thank you both again for hosting your beautiful ceremony and reception with us! It was an honor to be a part of your special day. You both were so fun to work with and plan your dream wedding! Cheers to a lifetime of happiness Shannon

  • 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-inclu... Read more

  • My husband and I had an amazing experience with Emerald Events Center. Due to COVID and unforeseen circumstances, our original venue canceled our wedding reception in June and we had to find another option quick to accommodate our wedding day in October. Kelly at Emerald Events responded to our request for a date right away and we were able to get back on track in the blink of an eye! All of our communications were handled professionally and swiftly. In addition, the venue itself was the perfect place to host our reception. The convenience of having the hotel attached to the event center was great for all of our out of town guests! Kelly and her team did an amazing job of coordinating all of our décor and making the ballroom space look exactly as we pictured. Chef and his staff were fantastic. All of the food from appetizers to entrees to late night snacks were raved about! We couldn't be happier with our choice to work with Emerald Events Center. Thank you to everyone for making our ...

  • My guests all said how much they loved my wedding reception through this venue. Was able to make many modifications to our space and the food was awesome. Highly recommend going through their preferred vendor for the wedding cake as well. Packages can be a bit pricey, but the hotel attached made it so much easier. Highly recommend for any couple looking for a reception venue. Person that I worked with with prompt with responses to my questions and helped make the day perfect.
