    Absolutely Perfect!

    We had our wedding here on 1/2/21 and I cannot recommend them enough! I looked at a number of venues but after visiting Red Mesa, no where else even compared. Leigh was not the original Events Director I booked with but I could not have been more grateful that she was the one there on my wedding day. In addition to the fact that the ballroom is absolutely stunning on its own, they have so much décor available including linens, chargers, vases and even a diamond arch which was the perfect backdrop to our rooftop ceremony. Leigh has a ton of experience and a great eye for detail so I had no doubt our wedding was going to be beautiful. But when I walked into the ballroom for the first time I was completely blown away. She took my vision and brought it to life ten fold. Everything from the food to the service was excellent and our guests are still raving about how fantastic our wedding was! These are truly memories that will last a lifetime and we cannot thank her and her team enough for making our wedding better than we ever imagined!!

    Best day ever!

    So many amazing things to say! Morgan was professional and accommodating along with the rest of the staff. We married on the roof top and then danced the day away in the ballroom and Cantina. We had a live musician on the patio and a Dj inside. The open bar had everyone partying at noon as if it was midnight. The daytime deal was the most cost effective for us and worked out perfect. We chose to have appetizers instead of sit down meals and it worked out to be the perfect amount of food and booze to keep everyone dancing and contempt.
