We could not have asked for a more perfect venue to host our wedding reception. We worked a lot with Leah and Jessica, who both were incredibly responsive and helpful (patient too!) for the months leading up to the big day. Jessica was there even on the day itself, with us every step of the way to make sure things were going the way we hoped, and they absolutely did. The food was excellent, the service was amazing, and they worked seamlessly with the vendors we had chosen because they had all worked together before - it was a well oiled machine. We felt very fortunate to have chosen Sanctuary for our celebration, and we couldn’t have been happier.Sent on 05/28/2018

My husband and I got married at the Sanctuary a few days ago and could not have been more thrilled with this venue. The second i drove up, i knew that this is where we would be married. Not only were the grounds and views spectacular, but the people working there are incredible. From the friendly valet team, to the wedding set-up crew to the chef's team and servers, everything was top notch. Jessica, who i worked with on the coordination side, deserves special praise- she is a true professional. She is friendly and was on top of everything! She answered my questions do quickly and was a pleasure to work with. One of the main reason's why i chose the Sanctuary was for the food. I am a firm believer of "you get what you pay for" and this was no exception. The beef was phemonenal- and so many guests said it was the best wedding meal they had ever had. I can't wait to celebrate future anniversaries at this resort.Sent on 10/04/2017

We only visited 2 venues when deciding who to book with for our wedding, and once we saw the Sanctuary we knew we found the perfect fit. It is the most beautiful setting from the ceremony space, to the cocktail hour balcony , to the reception ballroom , and there are stunning views of mountains everywhere you look. Every thing is landscaped to perfection and the entire property is clean and tidy. Beyond the obvious amazing views is the impeccable customer service. From the time I arrived the morning of the wedding to start getting ready to the time we left the morning after the wedding, the Sanctuary staff catered to our every need. Every member of the sanctuary staff was nice and helpful not only to us but to our families and guests. Our guests literally could not stop raving at how beautiful our venue was and how delicious the food was from cocktail hour to our late night snack. Multiple people commented that the dinner filet is the best steak they have ever had. Leah was a huge part in making our day go smoothly and as stress free as possible. Every need or request I had, she made sure happened promptly. On top of keeping things running smoothly, Leah helped me to get my nerves under control during those tense moment before walking down the aisle and I am so grateful she was there. You can not go wrong in booking the Sanctuary for your wedding and it is worth every single penny!Sent on 03/28/2017
