I Love Being The Wedding Planner At The Bushnell

I am thrilled to be the recommended and approved wedding planner for The Bushnell Event Center. Lisa and I work so well together! She gets the bookings done and then I handle all of the details. The flexibility and price of this place cannot be beat! Plus it is an absolutely beautiful, sleek modern space!

Great Venue

We had our daughters wedding at the Bushnell and everything was great! Lisa was amazing and great to work with. It was so nice having the wedding & reception all at one venue and made it so convenient for all of the out of state guests staying at the Marriott.
