Shelly Nordtvedt (Coordinator)

I live in Harrisburg, SD with my husband and dog Odie. I have three amazing grandchildren that are my world. You can often find me on bike trails in the summer. I have a fulltime job during the week and work at Prairie View on weekends. I started at Prairie View when the owner Melissa took over. I enjoy helping families get ready for their big day and make sure they have what they need at the event hall. Working for Melissa has been exciting and fun.

Meet Our Bartenders



I live in Sioux Falls. I’m Latino and a father of 3 adult girls, love having fun and hanging out with friends when ever possible. I’ll never turn down a cold beer. I started at Prairie View to help out my good friend and love it. I love asking people how they are on their special day. Don’t be surprised if you see me dancing behind the bar with some of my co-workers

Meet The Marketer



I live in Cambridge, MN with my husband, daughter, 3 cats, and a crazy husky puppy. I’m obsessed with coffee, anything glittery, and watch Gilmore Girls on a constant loop. Combining my love of event planning with my background in marketing and social media brought me to Prairie View in 2019 and I couldn’t be happier being part of this amazing team
