Ananda Retreat is a family-owned and -operated country wedding venue based in Ash Fork, Arizona. Situated on a 20-acre ranch property in a juniper forest, the venue is a self-sustaining and low-footprint facility, respecting the environment in as many ways as they can. The retreat can be for many different events, including wedding ceremonies, receptions, bridal showers, elopements, engagement parties, and rehearsal dinners.
Facilities and Capacity
Many couples choose to hold their wedding outside in the beautiful and scenic Arizona desert. Outdoor seating is provided for guests, and a rustic wooden wedding arch is the perfect complement to a ceremony. The large Ananda Barn can hold up to 140 guests, with possible additional guest spaces depending on the dance floor layout. The large loft in the barn can be used to comfortably situate a DJ setup, or for extra seating for larger groups. The bridal suite on the property is an authentic, extra-large Sioux tipi that provides an upscale camping experience. Decorated with a shabby chic interior, the tipi provides a great backdrop for pre-ceremony pictures, and couples can also choose the spend the night in the tipi after the reception. If needed, shuttle service can be accommodated, and guests are allowed to park on the property, which also includes wheelchair access.
All-inclusive packages are available for wedding events, which include combinations of site usage, day-of coordination, wedding photography, and event rentals. While Ananda Retreat can supply bartenders for your celebration at their in-house bar, they allow couples to choose all other outside vendors, which gives a great amount of flexibility for items such as catering, floral, and decorating services. Their inventory also includes barware, flatware, china, and glassware. If couples need specific wedding event rentals, Ananda Retreat can provide:
While the retreat is 100 percent off the grid, historic Williams is a 22-minute drive away, and Prescott is 45 minutes from the venue. The nearest airport is Prescott Municipal Airport, Ernest A. Love Field, located about 48 minutes away in Prescott, Arizona.

I recently had my wedding at Ananda Retreat and it was honestly so perfect! The property is so peaceful and the barn is so shabby-chic gorgeous! I know all of my guests enjoyed the space, many traveled from Wisconsin, Minnesota, Illinois, Iowa, California, Colorado and Texas! The Retreat offered a luxury shuttle that brought our guests to and from the wedding. Most of the guests stayed in cute Williams on Route 66.
My husband and I spent the night in the VERY ROMANTIC candle lit Tipi. What a treat, I'll never forget it! So cozy, bohemian and beautiful! There were many special touches throughout, I know this place is only going to get more and more amazing over time! I will definitely be coming back for a yoga retreat!

Our Daughter’s wedding was held at Ananda and it was spectacular. The fresh scent of juniper, the mountains in the background, and the excellent attention given to each wedding detail made our experience phenomenal! It was perfect for a destination wedding. Our family and friends enjoyed the beautiful wedding and also visited Historic Williams, AZ, The train to the Grand Canyon, Sedona AZ, Flagstaff AZ and Las Vegas NV.
