Riverside Event Venue


The last time I posted a wedding I tried to put the photos in chronological order and Facebook wouldn't have it and scrambled them all up... so this time I didn't even try!

Regardless, here is a look back at Erica & Seth's wedding at Riverside Event Venue this past Thursday!

Shelby and Josh were married at Riverside Event Venue in Lacey Springs this past Friday evening. Day Of Coordinator, Mikayla had everything in place while Brent and Jade from the 2020 “Best Bar of Huntsville” All Shook Up Bar and Beverage Catering kept things rolling in the adult beverage department.

The Bride and Groom were beautiful, the wedding reception set up beautiful and everything flowed wonderfully well.

Guests dined on Pork Loin, Herb-Marinted Chicken Breasts, Loaded Mashed Potatoes, Macaroni and Cheese and Green Beans and enjoyed a Fruit and Cheese arrangement during their cocktail hour.

Rosemarie Presnall provided the traditional bridal cake while Peggy Ann Bakery did the Groom’s cake (carrot cake).

It was a beautiful evening with a lot of fun for the guests while family friend, Dr. Butler of Alabama Pediatric Dental was the fantastic DJ for the night!! And fun for us to run into our friends Kellye and Chris Wells!

Congratulations Shelby and Josh!

Opportunities to shoot Riverside are few and far in between with the saturated wedding photographer & videographer market in Huntsville, AL but when we get the chance we make sure we knock it outta the park.

Most brides are blinded by diamonds.

Don't allow yourself to miss a pearl. ♥

Operating as usual



I know this probably sounds crazy, but coming to our empty building, I get a sense of sadness in the room. It’s almost like our building is missing all of the love, joy, & celebration it gets to experience most weekends. We truly cannot wait for our first event coming back after this pandemic.

Until then, we are still giving tours...VIRTUAL TOURS, that is! If you are looking to book a venue for the remainder of 2020 or for 2021, let us know! We would love to video chat with you to show you around & answer any questions you may have. Give us a call or shoot us an email to schedule a time to chat!

Until we get to celebrate together again, stay happy, healthy, & safe sweet friends🖤

Mixing round & rectangle tables is one of our favorites things to do when designing a floor plan! It helps breaks things up and keeps your guests’ interest as they move around the room.

For this wedding in particular, it made their large family table stand out from the other guest tables all while making everyone feel included🖤

This will forever be one of our favorite memories. I can’t help but smile when I think of it!

Anne & Hamlin didn’t plan on doing a first look. They wanted to see each other for the first time at the end of the aisle. HOWEVER, excitement got the best of them and they just couldn’t help themselves! They both immediately turned to face each other & Hamlin planted a big ole one on her!

I wish we’d gotten a photo of all of the vendors’ faces, as all of our mouths were on the floor (because that was NOT the plan!).

Their love for each other is undeniable & it was so sweet to be able to witness their excitement with them on their wedding day🖤

It never ceases to amaze me where photographer’s eyes are drawn. They see the world so beautifully different than most.

Some are drawn to the river, some to the trees, a few to the fence and some to one of our personal favorites, under the overpasses. We are so excited every time we receive an album and find another little hidden gem that a photographer appreciated about our building or grounds.

If only these walls could talk...

They have seen so much love in the short year and a half that we have been open. Lots of laughter, kisses, happy tears, and quite a bit of breaking it down on the dance floor as well!

It’s been a long time since this room has been empty and we couldn’t be more thankful!

P.S. We’re also extremely thankful for Aislinn for befriending us, believing in us, and for always being ready to bounce ideas off of🖤🖤🖤

Ceremonies on the lawn are some of our favorites, because we can watch through the windows upstairs🖤

Heather & Stephen did something we’ve never seen before. After exchanging their vows, they stuck around as their guests dismissed and greeted everyone row by row, making sure not to miss a single loved one. We were so touched by this simple act of thankfulness!

10 Questions to Ask When Touring Wedding Venues 1. What is the maximum guest capacity?


Last week, a mother of the bride reminded me of the age-old K.I.S.S. method, which translates to: Keep It Simple, Sweetie.
It is so easy to get wrapped up in all of the little details that go into your wedding that inevitably leave you stressed out & can take the joy out of one of the best days of your life.
So here’s your wedding planning reminder to Keep It Simple, Sweetie. Let others help you, and don’t get caught up in the little details that only a few might notice. Enjoy this time of planning & don’t let those insignificant details steal the joy from your big day ♡
