This place is fabulous and the service could not be beat! ~Lauren Junot

We had the best experience at Elegant Memories. Mrs.Michelle and Mr. Travis went above and beyond to make sure my husband and I had the best night of our wedding. They kept the food hot and the music playing all night long. Their prices are unbeatable and the food was excellent. If your looking for an all inclusive place to ger married this is the place for sure! Love yall! And thank you so much for making our day so special.

I could have never in my life imagined how incredibly thankful I am for Michelle, Travis, and her elegant memories staff! I left that place feeling like I owed her the world. She bends over backwards for you as her bride and makes you feel like royalty. Constantly checking up on you and making sure the party never stops! My wedding was flawless and she played a big role and making it so!

Evelyn Warner

HIGHLY RECOMMEND! I could not have asked for a better wedding reception!! Travis and Michelle went above and beyond to make me and my husbands reception go perfect. Most couples dont get the chance to sit and enjoy your wedding dinner, rest asure you WILL sit down and eat! I was so thankful for that little detail. They go as far as picking up and loading your going away car so your family doesnt have to and they can enjoy your reception as well. Travis is the best DJ ever! He will get the party started and there is no one sitting down! My wedding theme was vintage and rustic, and they decorated the venue just as I had wanted. You will NOT be disappointed in making Elegant Memories your wedding venue!

Jessica Butler


Although I've not yet been a bride of Elegant Memories, I've been involved with two weddings held here. Michelle and Travis are absolutely the best in town! Super sweet and down to earth. They will go the extra mile for you! I highly recommend Elegant Memories to every bride looking for a venue with exceptional customer service and not to mention, fabulous food!

Ashley Kleinpeter

Michelle, Travis & their staff are so amazing! They made our wedding day go so smoothly. They have awesome food and service! Mr. Travis got everyone on the dance floor and kept them there all night! Mrs. Michelle decorated, coordinated and made sure us and our wedding party had everything we needed! She was super helpful with any questions we had throughout the entire process! I would HIGHLY recommend them for a wedding or any other party/get together! If I could do it all over again I wouldn't change a thing!! 
Thank y'all so much for making our big day everything we dreamed of!

Elegant Memories was awesome! The food was delicious! The room is beautiful, affordable, and convenient for our local church wedding! Guests from out of town were close to the interstate, with the opening of the Central Throughway. Travis and Michelle are so sweet, and did such an awesome job!!! Michelle, kept everything on target and made sure I knew what would be happening next, brought Timmy and I plates of food, and made to-go plates with a bottle of wine. The wine that I asked for, they tracked it down and got it! Nothing but amazing customer service, and good, honest people. Travis does a great job with the cooking and the DJ'ing. It just was an all around wonderful experience, and glad I was able to get that right here in Central! Great job guys, and I can't thank you enough!!! :)

The George family would like to thank Michelle and her wonderful staff for going above and beyond for our family celebrate my dads 80th birthday! Words can't explain how please we are!! From the beginning of the planning process to the end when they walk you out of the door, Michelle makes sure you have everything you need and even things you didn't even think about!! If you are looking for a venue for whatever you are planning, I highly recommend Elegant Memories!!! They are a hidden jewel!! Thank you so much Michelle!.

Vershelle Shaffer

Michelle and Travis went out of their way to make our day amazing! I couldn't have asked for a better wedding night. The food was amazing, and Michelle went out of her way to make sure that me, my husband and our families were well taken care of! they also made sure we didn't have to worry about a thing when it came to the planning and decorating! The best decision I've made, besides marrying my husband, was to have our wedding at Elegant Memories!

Belinda Pickett



Dear Michelle, I feel compelled to put in writing how impressed I am with Elegant Memories. Of course you and your DJ husband are responsible for that! This comes from not only me, the photographer, but the bride and groom and their families as well. You made everyone of us feel special and more than comfortable. Your attention to detail is remarkable. I would and will recommend Elegant Memories to any and everyone looking for a special place to have events. Thanks for keeping us all so relaxed and for assuring that everything run smoothly. Respectfully, Julia JuliaMorganPhotography 225-252-3819



Although my special day hasn't happened yet, Michelle has taken such care of everything involved.
I look forward to my special day with such amazing people and great facility whom actually take the time out and care for each step. Jenn

Michelle and Travis are AMAZING! They took the time to get to know my (now) husband and I before our wedding and our day was perfect. Everything was customized to our taste and our Hallowedding was spooky and elegant. Thank you so much, Michelle and Travis!

Emily Knaps

Absolutely loved the setting, the food, and music. A delightful place for any kind of, reception, family reunions, graduation parties, or just a reunion of friends for a day or night of fun and enjoyment.

Jerry Jackson



Amazing, is how I would describe our Wedding.

Everything was perfect. A dream come true. 

Every detail was fulfilled and everything was so smooth. 

We had a great time. 

Thanks Travis and Michelle for Help make our Day Magical. 

Even in our wildest dreams could we have imagined Our Wedding. 

We will forever be grateful for everything that ya'll did to help make our dreams a reality.


Our wedding more than we had dreamed. Thanks Michelle and Travis. 


Rochelle Fleming




Thanks to the Spinosa family and Elegant Memories for a great start to a great weekend.

The Johnson/May families could not have picked a better place to kick off the festivities. 

Y'all are the best!

The May Family


The happiest day of my life. Way more than I had even expected. Michelle and Travis were the best ever. I'm still getting calls and texts about how beautiful my wedding was, about how good the food was, about how sweet Michelle and Travis were and about Travis's dj and dance skills. All I had to do was come in sit down and that's it. Some people are truly genuine ppl and they are truly that. Thanks so much Travis and Michelle

Nicole Turner Heard

Michelle and Travis are AMAZING. The venue is absolutely perfect, the food is wonderful, the entire staff is extremely helpful and friendly. Michelle waited on us personally and made sure we had everything we needed the whole night. I never had to worry about thing. I would highly recommend Elegant Memories to anyone planning an event. They have so many decor choices and colors that they will definitely have something to please you. After meeting with several other venue coordinators, Michelle is by far the sweetest, most friendly and helpful I have found! Next time I have a need for an event hall (graduation parties, holiday dinners, etc), my first choice will certainly be Elegant Memories.

Paula Forest


EXCELLENT! There are no words to explain how attentive Travis and Michelle are. When she says she's handling it and got it and I wouldn't have to do anything she wasn't joking. From start to finish it was awesome. Travis' cooking was awesome and the attendants were terrific as well. This is Centrals best kept secret! If you got a party or wedding coming up, this is your place to go.

Lynn Palmer

I was shocked at how amazing Michelle, Travis and their family was! They know how to throw a party and how to keep the groom and (especially) the bride happy. If I could do it all over again I wouldn't change a thing! 
Thank you Elegant Memories for making our day unforgettable!


Hi, I had the chance to photograph a wedding at elegant memories last weekend. Everyone was dancing because the music was great and that makes for great pics. Also the owner, worked with me and everything flowed smoothly. I recommend elegant memories for your future weddings and events! - Valerie Romero owner/ photographer at Valerie Romero Phofography.


Michelle and Travis made our day as easy and perfect as possible. We still hear compliments on the food, on Travis getting on the dance floor with the kids and the overall venue. I would not have done a single thing differently and would use Elegant Memories to renew vows later on!

Tia Weathers



Our wedding was held here, and we couldn't have asked for more. Travis and Michelle were phenomenal. They made sure every little detail was perfect--great food, great music, a beautiful space, and Michelle's fantastic wedding coordination were all fantastic. To top it off, the price is very reasonable. We are so happy we chose to have our wedding here!

I cannot recommend Elegant Memories enough. Michelle and Travis are fantastic , and dedicated to providing for everything you need at a very reasonable price. Our package included our ceremony and reception, food, DJ, and Michelle's phenomenal wedding coordination. She made sure everything was perfect--and it WAS! From delicious food to great music and a feisty second line, everything was just right. She wrangled vendors, helped guide our guests through the event, and always kept a fresh drink in our hands. They even sent us off with to go boxes and champagne. You will not regret getting married here--we promise!

Stephanie Krassenstein



Travis and Michelle... Thank you for a wonderful awesome experience! The fireworks proved to be a huge success!


Tara Crocker


Michelle and team are the best of the best. I never had to want or need for anything. Simple as that. Extremely professional and 2 years later, people are still talking about how elegant my wedding was. Food was delicious and the facility was supremely clean.

Mia Oliver



Dear Michelle and Travis,


My entire family is so impressed with you and Elegant Memories.


We traveled from North Louisiana and North Mississippi for the wedding of my niece, 


Savannah Young and had such a wonderful time that I wanted to write you.


From the moment we walked in and were greeted at the door and invited to sign the guest book,


 to wishing the newlyweds a happy honeymoon at the end, the experience at Elegant Memories could not have been nicer.


The room was the perfect size with lovely tables and chairs. 


We all enjoyed dancing to the super music-what a great sound system and song selection!


And the food! I can't say enough about the pasta and shrimp, jambalaya and cream sauce. 


Absolutely delicious.


Your staff is to be commended, they were friendly and helpful.


Elegant Memories made this a very special time for us, one with truly Elegant Memories.


Thank you very much,






Michelle and Travis just wanted to thank you for a magical night. 


As the mother of the bride your excellent service 


made the night effortless for me. 


I truly appreciate the attention to detail and your personal service. 


Your venue exceeded our expectations. 


Thank you very much.


Virginia Gardner




Thank you Michelle and Travis for making this an absolutely perfect day. 

I cant thank you enough. 

Everyone had a great time and everything was beautiful and the food was awesome. 

I will tell everyone that if they have an event you two are the ones to call. 

Thank you again you two are such a blessing.

Marsha Fontana



David and I would like to Thank You tremendously for making our daughter's wedding reception such a splendid event. 

From the first initial meeting, over a year ago, to the day of the event, you were always available and prompt when we had questions or needed help. 

All of our guests have repeatedly expressed what a wonderful time they had, and we all agree, the food was delicious and plentiful! 

Your hospitality was above and beyond anything we could have possibly imagined. 

Elegant Memories provides a beautiful setting for any event and the Central area should be proud of this spectacular and affordable venue. Thanks again for everything!

Debbie and David Shaffett





Dear Michelle and Travis, 

The name says it all for your venue. Michelle, you made my vision come true. The decorating, the flow, down to the music Travis provided was exactly how we wanted it to be. I had numerous people tell me how delicious the food was and the setup was gorgeous. Your venue has a unique charm that is truly special to our community. Michelle, you made me feel as if I were the only bride you were working with and were always just as excited as I throughout every step of the planning process. Thank you for making our special day even more memorable. Not only Elegant Memories, but Michelle and Travis, you guys will always hold a special place in our hearts. I can't wait until the next event that I can plan with you at Elegant Memories!

Louis and Rhonda Louviere  



All I can say is wow!!!! Michelle and her staff did a fantastic job. They took care of our every need the entire night. The food was fantastic the music was great and the venue itself is beautiful, with a New Orleans feel to it. My guest called it Central's hidden jewel.

Frankie Williamson



Michelle & Travis, there just aren't words to thank you both enough for the wonderful job you and your staff did for my parents' 50th Anniversay Party this weekend!!!

I got SO MANY compliments and I have to say you both made me look good.

Everyone was so complimentary on the delicious food...EVERYTHING was excellent!!!

The venue is beautiful and fitting of its name...Elegant!!!

The way you took care of us (Mom, Dad, me and the guests) was pretty astonishing, 

not to mention the miracle of removing the red wine that covered my white lace dress in the beginning of the evening.

It was like there were at least 3 Michelles running around taking care of our every need.

Travis made the party so much fun.

You both have wonderful personalities and beautiful spirits

I just want you to know if I have the need for a party venue again, I won't be shopping around! You are the  BEST!!! :-)

We really did have a blast!

If you have the occasion to have a party, you HAVE to call Michelle & Travis at Elegant Memories in Central...

they really know how to do it right and go above and beyond your wildest expectations!!!

I got elbowed during the party and had a glass of red wine spilled ALL DOWN the front of my white lace dress and 

Michelle whisked me away and before you knew it, I was back on the dance floor with my  dress looking like new!!!!

MIRACLE WORKERS, I tell you!!!!

Photos will be posted soon.

Danette McGee

Hi Folks,

I just wanted to let you know how much we enjoyed your hospitality last night.

My wife and I have been to many weddings and receptions, because she makes cakes. She made the ones last night. 

I can tell you that your facility and personnel were the very best and the service could not have been better. The food was the best of any reception that we have been to. 

We will be happy to steer anyone looking for a reception hall to you folks.

Ray Fisher




My husband and I got engaged in December of 2012 and just a few days after we got engaged, we set out trying to find venues for us to have our wedding at. 

Elegant memories was our first and last stop. 

We knew instantly that's the place we wanted to get married. It was absolutely breath taking! This place and the wonder, Michelle Spinosa, was such a wonderful help to my husband and I and our family. The location is super easy, and the place provided nearly everything for us. Tables, chairs, a bar, the music, and you choose from a long delicious menu of food. They give you the few options of How you want everything set up, and I tell you mrs Michelle had everything perfect to the T of how we wanted everything.

She worked with us in so many ways to make it just right. 


She checked in with me up until the day of the wedding and even after. 

The night of the wedding she nearly followed me around the whole night making sure I had every single little thing I needed and she helped me in so many ways. 

I highly recommend this place to any couple getting married. She made my wedding night an absolute fairy tale!



Mrs. Laurel Brashear Hooge



I was blown away at how wonderful this place is! Michelle and her team made our wedding reception a wonderful night!

From the first meeting to the night of the event, we felt that you were very attentive to our requests and very knowledgeable in the reception business in general. 

While we knew basically what we wanted, you were very helpful in filling in all the details. 

The hall was beautifully decorated and the winter wedding theme was carried seamlessly throughout.  

During the reception we were continually impressed at the level of attention and service you provided not only to us but to everyone of our guests. 

We’ve had lots of guests tell us how nice and accommodating you were to them which we greatly appreciate. 


It is refreshing to see a small business operated with such a high level of professionalism and pride. 

We will definitely recommend you to our friends in the future! 

Thanks so much for making such great memories for us!
