Absolutely magical

We knew right away that the gardens were the perfect place for our Halloween Masquerade wedding. We initially checked them out with the intention of getting the Steele Herb Garden but fell in love with the Amphitheater instead. We could not have hoped for a more magical venue! Our wedding ceremony was after sunset and the gardens were lit up beautifully with various string lights. We hired a photographer with a lot of experience in catching moody low lighting so I cannot wait to see the results. I don't think we could have found a venue that would feel as magical as it did.

The staff and coordinators at the gardens were helpful and informative every step of the way. As our plans changed they were more than happy to accommodate and work with us as needed. The whole wedding process was as painless as could be, which means a lot when you're doing a lot of the planning yourself. Not once did I feel that the process was too much.

Be aware that the bridal suite is a repurposed room without many of the trappings you would find in designated bridal suites, so you may be limited in what getting ready shots will be available to you. But that is such a small thing in the grand scheme of things. The venue itself was very worth it, the mood and ambiance is something I don't think we could have possibly gotten anywhere else. A small side note but something we appreciated, the money earned from weddings goes to conservation efforts, which were very much about. Especially in a world of a million golf course weddings. If you're getting married in Phoenix I cannot recommend the Desert Botanical Gardens enough.

A Wonderful, Beautiful Big Day

My beautiful bride and I got married at the Desert Botanical Garden in the Webster Center and had the best experience. The ambiance was gorgeous for our sunset ceremony and all of the preferred vendors did an amazing job. We couldn't have asked for a better supportive staff. The Garden did a great job accommodating us and is very reasonably priced. Highly recommended.

A Stunning Venue for an Unforgettable Wedding

Our wedding and reception at the Webster Center space within the Desert Botanical Gardens was an absolute dream come true. With the majority of our guests traveling from out of state, choosing this venue for our Arizona wedding was a decision we will never regret. The transformation of the space on our wedding day exceeded all expectations and was even more beautiful than I had envisioned.

The Desert Botanical Gardens provided a picturesque backdrop that perfectly captured the essence of Arizona's natural beauty. It was truly the ideal setting to showcase the beauty of the desert and create lasting memories.

Also, the prickly pear margaritas were an instant hit among our guests!

Thank you, Desert Botanical Gardens, for making our wedding a truly unforgettable experience that exceeded our expectations in every way.
