    Rehearsal Dinner Venue

    We had my son and daughter-in-law's rehearsal dinner and welcome reception here. It met and exceeded all our expectations. We worked with Leigh and Jessie. They were responsive, flexible, and organized. I was planning this event from out of town and could not have been happier with the way it turned out. Jessie gave me tips for where to get flowers. I picked out a color theme and she made the two spaces we were using look great. The food, drinks and service on the day of the event were outstanding. I would highly recommend Red Mesa!

    The best venue in this world

    Im not even joking. PLEASE get married here!!! Since the first day my now husband and I came to see the venue we fell in love. EVERYONE is so nice and helpful, they treat you like family.
    The followups were amazing, I had an idea of how I even wanted everything and they took that and made it a thousand times better. Ashley and Leigh will hold your hand through the process, make everything stress free and make your wedding a dream come true!
    Food is amazing, we had a taco bar and half the guests were Mexican, they all were impressed of the quality and taste of it all.
    Desserts are a MUST and the house margaritas... OMG! I wish I could get married there every day just to be around the amazing people that work there, eat their delicious food and just have the day of my dreams over and over again!
    Thank you so so so much Red Mesa, forever grateful.
