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!!Sent on 01/10/2021

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.Sent on 03/18/2020

A Wedding Jewel!
Red Mesa Events is the secret jewel of weddings! Words will not be enough to express my appreciation to this company during my wedding planning process. My ceremony was on the rooftop and reception was in the ballroom which comfortably fits 100 people with plenty of room for dancing. The venue is gorgeous and it is basically a one stop shop. Booking the venue included fancy wedding chairs, silverware, up lighting, a projector, food, diamond arch, linen, sound system, decorations, and a super professional director of events, Morgan! If you need something, just ask, they probably have it Lol!! My husband and I planned our wedding without a wedding planner which is stressful. However, Morgan made the task so much easier. She was responsive, flexible, and very easy to work with. The food and cocktails at our wedding were delicious!!!! Our guests are still talking about the food and the venue lol!! I highly recommend this venue!! You will not regret it!Sent on 12/29/2019
