Inspired by the 2000's Blockbuster hit, "The Wedding Planner," she's known she's wanted to plan events from a young age. When she graduated high school in Colorado, she returned to Arizona to study Creative Writing for her first two years at Arizona State University. She then pivoted to finish her Bachelor's degree in Tourism, focusing on Sustainability and Event Management, in 2019. During her time at university, she fell in love with traveling while studying abroad in Spain and finishing her final semester with an internship in Costa Rica. Following her time in Costa Rica, she could not stay away from Colorado and moved back to Denver at the end of 2019. Mackenzie started assisting wedding planners in Arizona while in school and transferred the skills she learned to help plan beautiful weddings all over the country with a variety of talented planners based out of Colorado. Mackenzie understands that each client is different and enjoys finding what would make an event unique to everyone she works with. She has no better feeling than the one she gets when she sees clients' smiles, when their days go perfectly and when each event comes to fruition.
Along with weddings, she has helped coordinate and set up banquets, birthday parties, and corporate meetings. She is well-rounded and excited, and open to planning any event that a client might desire. She is patient and attentive and will make sure you feel heard.

The ceremony garden is beautiful and the reception area is spacious with great views and ambiance. What was most outstanding though was the service and attention to detail provided by Tara Lyndsy at The Vista. She answered all of our questions and handled all of the details for us. The wedding was amazing and everything we had hoped for.
The day went flawlessly. We did not have a coordinator but everything was set up so beautifully and nothing went wrong. The ceremony garden was stunning with an amazing view, the patio was perfect for cocktail hour and the tables and decor inside were put together perfectly! We had SO many compliments on how great the food was and the open bar added to the fun! We wouldn't have changed a single thing from our wedding day and we are on cloud 9 when we look at back at the pictures of the best day ever! Thank you Vista and everyone who contributed to making our day so special!
Everything was just..perfect! I'm not sure where to start. First off the venue is gorgeous and was the perfect setting both for the ceremony and the reception. Second the food...amazing! All my guests raved about the food and the aesthetics. Lastly, the service went beyond my expectations! We couldn't be more happy! We'll be sure to refer them every chance we get!
We are so glad we chose The Vista at Applewood Golf course for our special day. Planning a wedding in Colorado from Arizona went by smoothly with Tara's help from the day we were interested in the venue to the day of the wedding. All of the staff were amazing including Geoff and the new wedding coordinator, they helped me through the day to keep the stress off! Family and friends still tell us how laid back and fun the staff were. Such a beautiful well kept place, my wedding pictures are beautiful.
This was such a wonderful venue for a wedding! Not only is it a beautiful place, but the staff at The Vista at Applewood were terrific to deal with and they made the day extra special. Tara & Brian were especially accommodating and worked with us to stay within our budget.
