My now husband and I use to joke when we were 15 that if we ever got married it would be at the jw Marriott. Ten years later our dream became a reality and we were married at this beautiful resort. We worked with the day of coordinator Lauren Ballard. We absolutely loved her. She was amazing and went above and beyond for us. She was very quick at getting back to us and made sure our questions were answered and she asked all the right questions as well. The food and everything the day of was phenomenal. I highly recommend the JW. It's beautiful.Sent on 04/04/2017

The event planning staff were amazing to work with. All of our contacts really went above and beyond for us. Booking with them also included two changing room suites the night before and the honeymoon suite the night of the wedding... It was expensive but worth every penny!Sent on 03/01/2015

When this resort was first built, i would drive by it often and remember saying, I will have my wedding here one day. And i did! Best location for Ceremony & Reception. Love the place. Clean and the staff is amazing to work with. Our ceremony was outside-in august-Hot yes! But the ballroom lawn was a beautiful location for it. Our reception was in the Saguaro Ballroom. Loved the way everything looked. Turned out amazing and everyone working to make our lunch(cooks, servers) made everything better. they were all nice and helpful!Sent on 10/09/2014
