Cassie was fantastic. She provided excellent customer service, responded quickly to my questions or concerns, was flexible in making changes and scheduling meeting times and overall provided great weekend support and helped everything run smoothly. It would not have been as efficient and seamless without her.

We just got married at the Samuel Riggs IV Alumni Center, we held both the ceremony and reception there. And the overall experience was fantastic. We worked with Cassie and Rhea, both of which are professional and nice. They were able to satisfy our needs as much as possible. And they provided suggestions regarding venue decorations which were quite helpful. Everything was going smoothly and all of our guests, and more importantly, me and my husband, enjoyed the wedding. We're so glad we picked the Samuel Riggs Alumni Center as our wedding venue!

The Riggs Alumni Center was fantastic as a wedding venue. The staff (we were fortunate enough to work with Cassie K.) was incredibly helpful throughout the process. The day of our wedding (which we had hoped to hold in Moxley Garden's) the forecast was calling for rain. Cassie gave us as late as possible to make a decision about whether or not we would keep the ceremony outside or move into a separate section of the ballroom. Despite having to move the ceremony indoors, everything was still perfect. Our guests were very impressed with the staffs professionalism and how beautiful the venue is. Thank you very much to the Riggs staff for everything.

We just had a wedding at Riggs this past weekend and we absolutely loved it! Everything was exactly what I imagined. Angela was great, she was very helpful throughout the day and made everything stress free for me. She was very accommodating and flexible throughout the wedding planning process. The only thing that was difficult for our guests is that Riggs does not have a physical address so we had to provide very specific directions. Overall, the venue was beautiful, the staff was great and I would recommend Riggs to everyone!

The Samuel Riggs IV Alumni Center was the PERFECT venue for our fairy tale wedding reception. From the gorgeous rotunda to the sparkling Rever Hall of Fame - there is not a bad spot in the building. Our reception of 125 people fit perfectly into 2/3 of Orem Hall. The staff provided outstanding service. Our wedding contact, Cassie, was easy to work with and provided exemplary advice and service. The staff at Riggs assisted with uplighting and other setup needs. The Moxley Gardens was the perfect site for wedding guests to gather for cocktail hour, as well as a beautiful site for wedding photos in the late afternoon.

Cassie with Samuel Riggs, did an amazing job! She worked really well with my coordinator Shawn Gray from Trebella Events. She was able to provide exceptional services including floor plans to help with our wedding planning. And totally was able to answer questions in a timely manner. She was also extremely accommodating with her hours to make sure my husband and I were able to attend meetings. The day of the wedding, she was right by my side supporting me! She is dependable, customer service oriented, loyal, and a hard worker. As a coordinator myself, she is totally a professional and can tackle any challenge! My wedding was fabulous because she was part of the Team!
