Thank you, Julie, for all of your assistance on our wedding reception. We received many compliments...and everyone had a wonderful time.
Absolutely totally satisfied with everything at the Ocotillo Golf Resort. Tina Clore was a true professional in how she treated my husband and me who were the parents of the bride. The bride lived out of state, so many decisions were made by us with Tina's advice. Many vendors that Ocotillo recommended were perfect as well. Also, Julie Pieri, who joined the Ocotillo staff recently was great to work with as well. We have had endless comments from our guests on how perfect the wedding was and especially great feedback on how delicious the food was. Steak and chicken entrees cooked perfectly! Can't rave enough about Ocotillo!
Tina and Bob at Ocotillo Golf Resort are THE BEST!!! They were flexible with all of our requests, and were so easy to work with. Tina was very responsive and helpful with suggestions regarding food, table arrangements, linens, etc.
The venue itself is absolutely beautiful. It has Frank Lloyd Wright - esk columns throughout the buildings. The ballroom has these great wood beams and has a great set up with a permanent bar on one end. Every one of our guests raved about how beautiful the scenery and the venue is.
Highly, highly recommended!!!
Thie location was so beautiful. The staff was amazing. The food so delicious. It was a pleasure to work with Ocotillo. They were so nice to us and did everything possible to bring the cost down and to help us out with our budgets. I would highly recommend Ocotillo. They are the greatest.
This venue, selected by our planner, was pretty much perfect in every way. The staff was very responsive and incredibly flexible with us (much more than many other venues we looked into). The venue was very reasonably priced, and the surrounding scenery--the well-maintained golf course with its famous bridges--made for some excellent pictures. The quality of the food was also excellent (everyone was very satisfied with it, especially with the chicken), and the fact that the venue was very reasonable with their tastings let us plan the perfect menu for our guests. The appetizers were also a surprise hit! A beautiful location with a flexible, professional staff that served great food ended up making for the perfect wedding, and I would happily recommend this venue over many of the other overpriced (and underwhelming) venues in the East Valley.
Ocotillo is such a hidden gem, and I'm so glad we discovered it- I never would have looked into a golf course for my wedding venue but it was absolutely perfect, and very low stress which is so important during your wedding planning. Melissa is the wedding coordinator and is very down to earth and easy to talk to. She responded to emails promptly and was always open to my ideas and making them work. I was a very hands off bride, and was worried I would forget about details but she had it all covered and was there for the majority of the wedding to ensure everything went well - even brought us cocktails and appetizers during our post-ceremony photos! The venue is beautiful and the costs were very reasonable, there were no hidden fees and our ending invoice was actually less than expected. Thanks so much Melissa and Ocotillo Golf Resort!!
Melissa and her staff at the Ocotillo Golf Resort were the perfect team to work with on our wedding. The venue has great architectural value which adds to the look of the wedding without any added decorations. The wait staff and chef did an amazing job with great meals, great cocktails and smiles.
My wedding was gorgeous and once everyone got there, went off so beautifully! Melissa and her crew were amazing so helpful and attentive and I received compliments about the venue almost immediately from ALL of my guests! Melissa came through for us when our original venue closed and would not return our money (We were one of the 60 Inspirador Couples), we were lucky to have paid with a credit card and get most of it back by filing fraud charges. But then we had a month to re-plan, EVERYTHING!! Melissa took care of us from the moment we called her and turned a really horrific situation and a month later, we had a dream wedding!! This place may seem on the edge of town, but I live in North Scottsdale and it only took 20-30 minutes depending on traffic to get there. There are plenty of hotels, the Chandler Fashion Square, too many restaurants to name, and everything else you need within 10 minutes drive! I just cannot say enough how wonderful this place is because of it's beautiful scenery (which I can't wait to see the pictures!) and the wonderful people who work there!!
My husband and I can't say enough about Ocotillo Golf Resort! They were fabulous from our first meeting to our big day. Mollie Beale was awesome, and as excited for our day as we were! We looked at various places (such as Ashley Manor, Val Vista Lakes, The Boojum Tree) and found Ocotillo to not only have everything we were looking for, but also have the value to fit our budget. We decided we would have a small wedding, which would include only about 30 people total. We didn't need to have a big venue and pay tons of money for a small wedding. Mollie was wonderful in helping us utilize different spaces than the big ballroom, and had a lot of good ideas. She was also accomodating when my husband asked to use one of the small bridges (right outside Bernards) for our ceremony. The day of our big day, she and Michelle set up all our decorations while I had my hair and makeup done in the Bridal Suite. It was beautiful, and we were so appreciative of everything that was done for us. As for the food, everything tasted as good as when we originally had the tasting. Mollie and Michelle definitely helped make our day perfect, and we had absolutely nothing to worry about that whole day! THANK YOU! :)
We had a wonderful experience at Ocotillo Golf Resort. All of the staff there are wonderful-very helpful, nice, and polite people. Mollie Beale was our wedding coordinator, and we could not have asked for a better person to be in charge of our wedding day details! Mollie is absolutely awesome! She was easy to work with, always gave us her full attention, answered all of our questions very quickly, did extra work for us to help with planning and dealing with our not-so-professional florist (don't go with AZ Family Florist, I highly suggest using Ocotillo's florist vendors on their preferred list). I can't say enough great things about our wonderful experience at Ocotillo. Our wedding was truly perfect - better than what I had ever imagined!!
Ocotillo is beautiful! I am a photographer and chose this location based on all the beautiful architecture and landscaping. It has beautiful lakes, trees, grass, stone and some desert landscape! It was perfect for a little bit of everything for my pictures! Emily was our wedding coordinator there and she is amazing! My day could not have gone any better thanks to her! Everything went so smooth! She had wonderful suggestions for other vendors and had an answer to every one of my questions along the way. My planning was made easy because of her!
Thanks for everything! Jenee' and Kenji Ikeda
I can't say enough good things about this place! Beautiful setting, beautiful dining room. I still get compliments on our wedding, 3months later. The food was out of this world. Everyone loved it. Emily Stark was our wedding coordinator, and she is fantastic! She is patient and kind, and had great suggestions for our wedding. Not one thing went wrong on our wedding day! It was stress free, thanks to Emily. Sarah & Greg Harvey
Ocotillo is a beautiful place to get married. We were blown away by the way our wedding turned out. They have an amazing staff, especially Emily Stark. She made our day perfect. She took care of all the details ensuring that everything was beautiful. She was an amazing coordinator and I'm not sure what we would have done without her! From the food, to the tables, to the beautiful landscape... everything was perfect! Thanks Ocotillo!
Ocotillo was picture perfect. Everything was exactly the way it was planed. The grass was green, the weather was amazing and the sun was sinning. (Maybe a little too much on the sun) Almost a year later and everyone in my family is still talking about how beautiful my wedding was.
The wedding staff at Ocotillo is amazing. They made our wedding day absolutely perfect and were very responsive throughout our wedding planning process. Everything went smoothly and the setting was gorgeous. The food was also excellent...we did a buffet on the outdoor patio, and everyone loved the food. Our open bar staff was also very professional and served some strong beverages! Couldn't have asked for more.
We got married at the Ocotillo Golf Resort on 4-13-13. The staff that helped us prepare for our big day was so nice and very helpful. All of our friends and family have had nothing but good things to say about our wedding. It turned out absolutely beautiful, and we couldn't have asked for a better wedding day. A special thank you to Melissa, the wedding coordinator, who really showed how much she cared about making the day perfect.
