Why You'll Love This Place

A Here Comes The Guide Wedding Venue Review
  • Surrounded by the Catalina and Rincon mountains, this Tucson event center in the Tanque Verde Valley features a wealth of beautiful backdrops, from the lushly landscaped garden to the sparkling pond and sprawling lawn.
  • Twinkle lights fill the mesquite and cottonwood trees in the grove, where a gazebo makes a lovely outdoor ceremony site. After you exchange vows, you can adjourn to the Starlight Banquet Room and dance the night away under the striking grand skylight.
  • Special amenities include a horse-drawn carriage, a bridal dressing room and groom's lounge with entertainment, and a fire pit and outdoor patio. Plus, on-site catering with delicious plated dinner and buffet options makes planning a breeze.
