See What People Are Saying

“We were the type of couple that knew that we wanted to get married but we didn’t have any specific ideas for the big day, and at the beginning, we were extremely overwhelmed by everyone asking us specific questions that we had not even thought about yet. However, once we met Oscar Event Center’s wedding coordinator Riley, she made us feel completely comfortable the entire way, which was a huge relief! Riley would ask us planning questions and if we did not know she would give suggestions without being pushy and making us feel stressed out. On the day of the wedding, she made sure that my husband and I had everything we could ever have needed, and she did everything in her power to make sure it all went to our exact plan. I even mentioned to Riley at a meeting in February that I wanted the lights to dim when the dance floor opened up and she remembered that all the way to July and made sure that happened for us! I was extremely impressed with her attention to every detail and her positive and kind attitude at every meeting we had with her! Whenever someone asks me how our wedding went I tell them it went perfectly because of our incredible wedding coordinator Riley! Riley made our wedding spectacular and we could not be more thankful to have our wedding at Oscar Event Center so we had her! All of our guests keep saying how incredible the food was and they were all extremely impressed by the venue!”

“We had an amazing experience working with the Oscar Event Center and Riley Petri for our wedding reception. We had a cocktail hour at the Oscar Station and the reception at the Event Center, with the monorail running between the two locations. Everything came together seamlessly for a perfect day and we wouldn’t change a thing. The food and drinks were delicious and we loved having such a unique space to celebrate with our family and friends. Riley was so patient with our questions throughout the planning process, and her advice and expertise were invaluable when it came time to plan the many final details like the room layout and flow of the reception. We’d relive the day if we could”
