Defining Moment Events is a newly formed event production company based in Brookhaven, MS. Beginning in 2017, owners Steven & Jennifer McMorris launched their first running event, the Trick or Treat Trot 5K with a small group of runners who braved the unseasonably cold weather to give Defining Moment Events its start. That group of runners quickly grew to over 120 for their second event, Run Run Rudolph 10K & 5K. With the start of a new year, Defining Moment Events is poised to expand and bring even more successful and unforgettable events to the Brookhaven area.

In addition to creating and producing wholly owned events, Defining Moment Events also offers all event services to help you produce your next event. Whether it’s a specific event service, event consulting, or a complete turnkey production of your event, let Defining Moment Events help produce your next special event!


Our Mission

Our goal is to create and produce unforgettable events that exceed the expectations of our sponsors, clients, and participants and that provide safe and encouraging environments that make a positive impact on the communities we serve.


Core Values

Honor God. “….whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God!” – 1 Corinthians 10:31

Create Family Environments. We want our events to be a safe place for mom and dad as well as the kids!

Be Great. Good enough isn’t good enough.

Give Back. We want to make a positive impact on the communities we serve and produce events that are bigger than just an event.

Dream big. “If you can dream it, you can build it” – Walt Disney
