We chose this venue for how beautiful the reception area is and for being able to build a stage on a fountain to get married on. We loved:
- With a built in-bar, high-end wood floor reception, media and lighting all part of the venue ambiance, this is a perfect venue that is already designed to host an upscale wedding
- The venue is part of Paseo Colorado Mall but you would not guess it when you are inside the ceremony. They have beautiful white shades that cover the wedding ceremony but leave the top open to allow natural sunlight and blue sky to illuminate your wedding
- For the size of our party (300 people), Noor provided an excellent price that included 6 hours of premium bar, outside catering, 3 bartenders, 12+ hours of venue site rental, 4+ hours of set-up time, and a host of other accommodations for a price that was better than all its competitors. They even provided a Photo booth and champagne toast on top of everything else
- From the sales coordinator, Bridget Ann Shillet, to their event manager, Paige Black, Noor provided excellent service. We didn’t have a wedding coordinator and I can’t tell you how much Paige and Bridget went above their roles and responsibilities to make our wedding happen. I owe a debt of gratitude to them. You will not find a team of people who will help you put on a magical wedding as Noor does.
Noor is not a typical choice for an Indian wedding but my wife and I are not typical people. We wanted a venue that can host 300 people, which had a certain style of modernity and class, and be different than a hotel ballroom where we didn’t have to build ambiance with so much decor. My wife and I researched over 40 places and visited 15 of them. Noor was the best one by far. My wedding was done on a budget but from our pictures, you’d think I spent double. That’s because Noor was that beautiful, that well designed and had a staff that ensured our wedding remained as beautiful as our dreams desired.

We got married on May 5th, 2018 and it was everything I ever dreamed of!
When my hubby and I were about to give up on the venue after dealing with so many unprofessional teams, we found Bridget Ann.
She was so efficient, professional, and polite.
Bridget Ann gave us a detailed cost estimate before our appointment.
What really impressed me was her ability to revise those estimates within hours to accommodate our budget and schedule.
After our appointment, my hubby and I knew Bridget Ann was the one for us.
On our food tasting appointment, we met Miranda, most amazing day of coordinator ever!
She was warm, responsive, and thorough.
Miranda had answers to questions I didn't even know I had.
She offered great suggestions, aided in making sure vendors were properly insured, and always responded to emails/calls in less than 24 hours.
Miranda was able to take care of all the vendors, guests, and nitty gritty stuff so I could fully enjoy the day.
Miranda is not only professional, but also genuine.
When my dad was crying his eyes out at rehearsal dinner, she was there to calm all of us down.
The venue is absolutely stunning!
If we could pick a venue again, we would pick Noor without a second thought.
Outdoor ceremony area is fairytale like; blue sky, green plants against white curtain, sound of the water fountain, and feel good breeze are nothing short of every girl's dream.
Indoor reception area is classy and tasteful.
Our wedding was on a tight budget so we went with the most basic food options: herb roasted chicken breast, portobello mushroom ravioli, and classic French ratatouille.
We heard great feedback from our guests about how great the food was; some even said best wedding food they've had.
There is a parking structure attached to the venue so it's very convenient for the guests.
We can't say enough great things about Noor and its amazing staff!
Thank you for making the first day of our forever perfect!!

We could not be happier with our entire experience at Noor. From the very beginning at our venue tour with Robert (owner), to the several days after our wedding with our amazing day of event coordinator/event manager, Amin. At the first visit with Robert, he was so easy going, upfront, and honest about the venue services/costs. We did not feel pressured to commit that day or add on every extra add-on. Later, for our first meeting with Noor we felt very impressed with Amin’s friendliness and professionalism. He answered all of questions at the meeting and responded to questions via email, text and phone in a timely manner.
During the final meeting Amin was very cordial to our videographer, who joined us to get a lay of the land. This meeting, Amin guided us through our wedding timeline & answered our videographer’s questions; his attention to detail with certain needs was perfect.
This little paragraph is a shout out to the main man with the plan behind the scenes. Amin absolutely slammed this thing out of the park, what more can you ask for out of this guy. Throughout the whole process he truly cared about our big day, and it was evident in all the details. This would not have been possible without the support of an awesome, experienced, and caring day of coordinator. Also, poor Amin even gracefully handled answering demanding questions from one of our mothers before the wedding and dealt with a drunk headstrong godmother during the wedding.
We received so many compliments about the delicious duet plate; miso salmon/ filet mignon. So, hats off to the chefs for the amazingly delicious meal, and thank you.
After the wedding, there was precious cargo left at Noor, and they were happy to safe guard our belongings until we were able to come pick them up.
In conclusion, if you have not figured out from this novel-sized review, we would 10/10 recommend Noor to anyone looking for a brilliantly assembled, memorable, enjoyable wedding!

The Sophia room is my absolutely favorite! If you are looking to have your event in a beautiful venue that include an amazing staff, look no further. This place will truly amaze you!
I had a pleasure to work with Noor venue couple of weeks ago. The entire team at Noor are fantastic. From the top down they truly run an event proving how much they care about the day of, and the enjoyment of the brides and grooms. Amin was point of our contact and he did beyond what he should do and what we expect. So professional and organized, and easy to work with. Thank you Amin for all your help love working there and with you, and always looking forward to the next one!
