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
A Stunning Venue for an Unforgettable Wedding
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.
