Our Experienced Wedding Staff

Our service team comprises a venue coordinator and a professionally trained beverage team.

Benefits of a Venue Coordinator

The job of a venue coordinator is to ensure the staff at the venue is taken care of. We will ensure the duties and schedules are managed so your wedding day runs smoothly. Weddings have many moving parts in regards to staffing, and your venue coordinator at The Ballroom at McKay will ensure those parts work together as well as possible.

Benefits of an Event Coordinator*

The event coordinator for your 2023 wedding will ensure your wedding stays on track. Weddings are pieced together like a puzzle, so you need someone to manage where everyone is supposed to be during your special day. Having someone to direct you to the ceremony site, direct when everyone walks down the aisle, manage the timeline, encourage people to move from the cocktail hour to dinner, and ensure all your decor is looking how you planned.

Benefits of a Professional Beverage Team

Having a professional beverage team is essential to a successful bar at your 2023 wedding. Your beverage team should have bartending experience to know what drinks to serve your guests as well as the knowledge of how to keep everyone safe while having the best night!
