I have to admit, it’s taken me a while to gather my thoughts to write this review because it’s so important to me that it encapsulates how happy my husband (I can say that now 🙂 ) and I are with our wedding at Zion Red Rock Oasis. Eric and I are very family oriented people, so from the beginning of planning it was very important to us that everyone be involved and that it be more like a vacation for all. An opportunity for each of our families to have time to get to know each other, rather than just one day that flies by in the blink of an eye. Effortlessly joining two families was inevitably going to happen at Red Rock Oasis…what we didn’t plan for was gaining a lifelong friendship with the sweetest human, our wedding coordinator, Andrea. From the beginning of the planning process, Andrea was patient with us, suggested some wonderful ideas but was also respectful if there was something we weren’t fond of. Do yourself a favor — hire Andrea as your coordinator, you’ll be really happy you did. She really helped us bring our vision alive.
The day we were set to arrive, there were flash floods in Zion. Roads were closed, some of our guests accommodations were washed away, and people were stuck on highway 9 due to road closures on either end. I was a nervous wreck making sure everyone was accounted for. Andrea called me as I nervously paced the aisles of Costco. She calmly gave me the facts and assured me things would be OK once the roads opened up again. I trusted her instincts and appreciated how she handled things so much! I was immediately at ease. Let me tell you, that rain washed away to such a beautiful evening. I wish I had a video of our families commentary upon arrival. The kids just ran back and forth from the indoor soccer arena to movie theater to the pool slide with excitement. The adults just kept repeating, “oh wow!” and “how on earth did you find this magical place?!”.
Needless to say, the wedding and rest of the weekend followed in same flawless suit. Our guests are still telling us it’s the most unique and best wedding they’ve ever been to. They loved that they had vacation time with their family. Goal = achieved.
Andrea, my new lifelong friend, our crazy family will definitely be back again soon. ❤️ Thank you for helping us with our dream wedding and memories we will never forget.
