    You won’t be disappointed with Medina!

    We just had our wedding at Medina Entertainment Center Sunday Sept 1st and we couldn’t be more happy with how everything turned out! We received so many compliments on how beautiful the space/decorations were, which we did very little and we were in the Ballroom, how good the food was and how amazing their team was the entire evening. We particularly loved Chuck the security guard. He was on top of things, took extra care of our gift box and added a little humor to the evening which was awesome! We worked with Christine who was amazing from the beginning. She made everything seamless, was always good at answering my questions and understanding when we made changes. It was such a beautiful day/night and we owe a lot of that to everyone at Medina. We would highly recommend having your wedding or any event at Medina you won’t be disappointed!

    Awesome Coordinator & Food!

    My wife and I loved working with Medina! Christine is an amazing coordinator and always went the extra mile to help. She was so friendly and professional. The food was incredible as well. Highly recommend.
