    Beautiful and stress free

    I am an awful planner, but Missy and the staff at Medina entertainment center took all the stress off my shoulders! They took such good care of everyone, and did an incredible job at putting us all at ease. Everyone on board was so sweet, the wait staff at the bar gave us so many kind words. Thank you again for making our day so special and stress free!

    Medina Entertainment Center's reply:

    Planning may not be your thing but the details sure are! From the succulent gifts for the guests and the crocheted leaves on the chairs, it was so whimsical and light in the space. Thank you for having us be the spot where you said, "I do!"

    the perfect venue

    Medina Ballroom was the perfect fit! Missy, our wedding planner had so many great ideas for our day and really made it custom to US and who we are as a couple. She was always there to answer any questions, smooth out the details and ease anxiety. The food was incredible. They really go above and beyond. Special touches on the presentation, it all was just perfect.

I have worked in just about every department when it comes to wedding hospitality. This gives me a great background for event planning and the understanding of what is necessary to make an event flawless and fabulous! I really try to offer everyone, no matter what your budget is the SAME experience and create an easy planning process. I personally appreciate quick responses from vendors so I personally strive for this with my couples.

It is so awesome to see all the Wedding details come together and I LOVE seeing the finished product. I am always available if you need some advice or direction. It is a must for me to be onsite the day of my Weddings to work out any last minute details.

In my off time, I try and get outside as much as possible with my husband Troy, daughter, Canyon and son, Cedar. My family means everything to me and that gives me extra motivation to create a personal experience for my couples on their big day. When I really want to relax, I enjoy a good night of lounging watching documentaries, a cozy bonfire, reading and going down the rabbit hole of TikTok’s (I have to set timers!!!).
