    The venue was beautiful and exactly what we were looking for. The natural landscape and blooming flowers made our day that much better. The Audubon was easy to work with and we would highly recommend getting married there!

    The Audubon is the absolute perfect venue for couples looking for a modern and unique wedding with a desert vibe! We attended the open house after the Arizona Bridal Show and my husband and I fell in love with the venue! The location is open during the week but I would highly recommend attending an open house to see how the center can transform into a wedding venue! Ensemble Catering is the catering company with the Audubon and the food was exquisite! Our guests told us that it was the best meal they’ve ever had at a wedding!

    Madison was our wedding coordinator and we had the best experience working with her. Madison was communicative at every step of the planning process and was there during our wedding to make sure everything was exactly the way I imagined! I don’t think I could have asked for a better venue or coordinator to work with!
