If you’re looking for a destination wedding venue that truly shows off “real” Arizona, this is it! I almost got married here myself. It’s perfect if you have a lot of out of town guests because they can stay on site and make a wedding weekend out of it. There is lots to do outside the wedding day- horseback riding, hiking in one of my favorite areas in Arizona, kayaking,  and exploring the nearby Saguaro Lake!



Andria & Michael had a gorgeous wedding with rustic elegant details. They had perfect weather for their October wedding and had the beer burro & their dogs present!


Kristian & Carter had a very rainy wedding- one of the rainiest I’ve ever had but they made the most of the situation! Because of the rain, they had a double rainbow over their tented ceremony, proving that there’s always a silver lining. The clouds cleared after the ceremony and it turned out to be a stunning evening!
