    Kristin was great to work with! She was professional and was always asking if we needed anything. Allowed us to bring in our own vendors (except catering and alcohol) so that our budget could be accommodated. She made my father-in-law happy by bringing in NA beer and my Grandpa with beefeater's; Gin. Set up was beautiful as well -.just as I envisioned. I couldn't have asked for a more perfect venue. Thank you Kristin and all the staff that helped!

    Kristin is without a doubt one of the best wedding venue contacts in Arizona. After researching several venues once we met Kristin, she quickly became our first and only choice for our wedding. Her attitude was amazing, her work impeccable and she was a consummate professional throughout the process and day of. A wedding can certainly be a stressful day and somehow she managed to keep everything light and fun while keeping everything and everyone on schedule. There’s no question that we would recommend Kristin and the Venue at Old Main to anyone looking for a perfect wedding venue and coordinator!
