Uniquely AZ: 11 Arizona Wedding Venues You Can't Find Anywhere Else

Arizona's wild, sun-soaked landscape is home to a rich tapestry of cultures, histories, and traditions. Scattered amid sprawling deserts and soaring red rock peaks, you'll discover a legacy of Old West desperados, Spanish missionaries, Mexican rancheros, devil-may-care miners, and indigenous people (the state is still home to 27 federally recognized tribes). So, whether you celebrate at a turn-of-the-century artist's retreat-turned inn, a Western-style ranch among the jagged mountains, or a luxurious historic hacienda, you'll find no shortage of these uniquely Arizonan spots—each a gem among gemstones.
