    Highly Reccommend!

    When my fiancé and I were searching for places in Arizona to get married, we had one goal of finding a place that would be easy for the majority of our guests being from out of town.
    When we reached out to the JW Marriott Desert Ridge we started working with Natalie, who was so great she was very responsive and easy to work with! When going through all of the different things that the JW provides for you when having your wedding with them we knew they would be the perfect fit. We were able to have all over our guests stay at the hotel, and the majority of the details such as food, the cake, having a coordinator, were all included in our package. And the hotel is absolutely beautiful, our guest still can’t stop taking about how great the hotel was.
    Getting closer to the wedding, Liz was assigned to us to be our day-of coordinator. We can’t express in words how amazing she was and grateful we were to have her! She made our wedding day feel so easy and not stressful, which allowed us to fully embrace the day. She was so organized with every detail and went way over and beyond what she was expected to do!
    The whole team at the JW Marriott Desert Ridge was so helpful and went over and beyond in making our day so perfect and special!
    For any brides out there considering the Phoenix/Scottsdale area, we highly recommend the JW Marriot Desert Ridge, you definitely will not regret it!

    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.

    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!
