Your wedding day is a milestone in your life. You will forever measure time from that moment on as before you were married and after. If ever there was a time to splurge, this is it. Your wedding day should be indulgent. Unlike a date night, you can’t try it again the next weekend so make sure when planning that your wedding venue is everything you want it to be. If you need some inspiration you’re in the right place. Here are my top 5 luxury destination wedding venues in Scottsdale, Arizona.
Sanctuary at Camelback Resort & Spa
Boasting breathtaking mountaintop views, an intimate glass enclosed ballroom, and beautifully landscaped grounds, Sanctuary at Camelback Resort and Spa is the perfect venue for the wedding of your dreams. They cater to groups of 75 to 200 and feature a culinary team led by Food Network star and Executive Chef, Beau MacMillan. Also, on top of the beautiful scenery, weddings with 50 guests or more will also receive a complimentary honeymoon suite with candlelight turndown.
Who wouldn’t want to get married in an area called Paradise Valley? If you want a beautiful desert and majestic mountains, Mountain Shadows could be your dream venue. You can choose from lush lawns, stunning terraces, and a magnificent rooftop deck. If you’re looking for modern luxury and classic desert scenery, Mountain Shadows has both in abundance.
