Best Phoenix Wedding Locations

I’ve seen several lists that include The Best Phoenix Wedding Locations. I wanted to put one together myself. I love being a photographer in Phoenix – so this list is based on what I love see at a venue.  And although I can’t list ALL of my favorite wedding venues (I have a huge list of favorites) These are some of my favorite places to “work”.

So this list isn’t really organized based on any real criteria. It’s what I like….these Best Phoenix Wedding Locations range in budget, style, and overall experience. They are each unique in their own special way. If you get a chance to visit, please say “Hi” for me…part of making it on this list is the wonderful catering director and staff.

My disclaimer – this list of best phoenix wedding locations, they are all located in the “Greater Phoenix Area”…which really means I didn’t want to leave them out just because they didn’t have a Phoenix Zip Code (but they are still amazing venues)

Chaparral Suites Scottsdale – located in the heart of Scottsdale – just north of downtown, Chaparral Suites offers lovely views, gorgeous gardens for a ceremony, and wonderful ballrooms capable of a huge wedding or a small quaint gathering. Call for more information and to schedule a tour 888-421-5521.


Maricopa Manor – This is one of those hidden treasures. You’d never know it was a fabulous wedding venue unless a friend told you about it. Located at just off of Camelback and Central – 15 West Pasadena Avenue Phoenix, AZ 85013. Maricopa Manor is a lovely little B&B that boasts a wonderful garden for an outside reception and ceremony. Unique, romantic and lovely are only a few words that describe this little piece of paradise. Call Joan for a tour – she is so kind and lovely to work with (602) 274-6302.

Our list of Best Phoenix Wedding Locations would not be complete without…

Boojum Tree – The first time I went there, I was almost certain I was lost. Although my GPS said I was on the right track – it wasn’t until I came to a dead-end and realized I was in a true paradise. Boojum Tree is another Hidden Wonder in Phoenix. Off the 51 and south of Bell…their tag name “Boojum tree hidden garden” is exactly that. Green and Lush – it is an oasis in the desert.

    Paul Welden - Nice blog post. Thanks for sharing. My sweetheart and I are getting married in Phoenix at the Venue at the Grove. It is a private indoor/outdoor secluded place surrounded and lined with pecan trees lit at night with white lights and a white picket fence surrounding the area … doesn’t even feel/look like Phoenix. We are very fortunate to have been introduced to such a beautiful park-like setting.ReplyCancel
