“Getting married at the Papago Golf Course was a dream come true. The buttes of Papago Park provide an iconic background for a fairytale wedding. Kelli and her team delivered a seamless and stress free experience both leading up to our wedding and throughout our special day. I can’t speak highly enough about my experience with Papago Events & Weddings; they helped us create incredible memories to be celebrated over a lifetime. Thanks again for such a great experience!”

“We met working at Papago over five years ago and there was no question this was where we wanted to seal the deal. Living out of state in Texas could have been a dealbreaker but Kelli and the Papago events team minimized the anxiety of the long distance endeavor. Armed with our planning notebook of questions, Kelli made each visit productive and solved every potential worry. We always left our meetings feeling satisfied and full of relief that Kelli was handling everything. She was also readily available once we were back in Texas and answered every email or phone call with a positive reassuring excitement. The Papago team went above and beyond to support our budget and our dream vision – organizing additional vendors, moving furniture mid event, and communicating well on the day of. The food Chef prepared was delicious and personalized to fit the bride’s vegetarian diet and a few vegan friends. The outdoor patio served essential for our older guests and the large venue area made everyone feel comfortable. Both us and our guests had a magical and flawless evening booking with Kelli and her team.”
