    Incredible Venue and Experience at TVR

    Tanque Verde Ranch is such an incredible location for a wedding!
    We fell in love with the barn after the first time we toured it and each time we visited over the year of planning we were more and more excited about our decision. Our wedding day was perfect! The ceremony backdrop with the Saguaro National Park is breathtaking, the Barn lawn with string lights and desert landscape is beautiful and the variety of spots across the ranch made incredible photo locations.

    It was not only the beautiful ranch that made our wedding day so wonderful, but the entire TVR staff. We had the pleasure of working with Hanna over the past year. She was beyond helpful and amazing to work with. Very professional, knowledgeable, responsive, and really good at what she does! Hanna made the planning process so smooth with her attention to detail, the information she provided, checklists, and all advice. From the initial steps in planning, to the rehearsal, and the day of, we were so thankful to have Hanna's support bringing everything together. All of the staff we worked with were extremely nice, helpful and professional. Dan the shuttle driver, Greg during the reception, and the bartenders, we couldn't have asked for a better team. They truly make sure you and your guest are taken care of throughout the day!

    The food was incredible and even 2 weeks after our wedding, we are still getting messages about the incredible appetizers, delicious dinner options, and late night food! If you are looking for an exceptional wedding venue, with plenty of space, indoor/outdoor options, perfect desert views, and an all star team, we HIGHLY recommend Tanque Verde Ranch!!

Hanna
Hanna
Sales Manager

Hanna enjoys finding any reason to celebrate both in her personal life and at work. She moved from Kansas to attend Northern Arizona University, where she earned her B.S. in Hotel and Restaurant Management. Hanna started her career in the billing department at a Tucson Country Club before making the switch to events in 2018. She quickly became an integral part of the Tanque Verde Ranch team as an event coordinator and was quickly promoted to sales manager. Hanna loves to spend her free time crafting, hanging out with friends, and cuddling with her dog Charlie.

Favorite Wedding Moment: Watching the groom’s face as his bride walks down the aisle… similar to Katherine Heigl’s character in 27 Dresses.

Favorite Ranch Activity: Cowboy Cookout

Favorite Wedding Movie: 27 Dresses (obviously)

Nicole
Nicole
Sales Manager

Nicole loves to plan, whether it’s a wedding, corporate event or vacation. She fell in love with everyday planning working as a nanny while earning her B.A. in business from the College of Saint Benedict and Saint John’s University in Minnesota. Nicole started planning weddings and events in 2012 and found Tanque Verde Ranch through our sister property, Grandview Lodge in Nisswa, MN. As a South Dakota native, Nicole was ready for warmer weather and joined our team in March of 2019. She loves to go on desert adventures with her dog Remmy in her spare time.

Favorite Wedding Moment: Building a relationship with the couple in the time leading up to their special day, then seeing their joyful reactions as the day unfolds.

Favorite Ranch Activity: Sunset Horseback Ride

Favorite Wedding Movie: The Wedding Planner with J.Lo

Katie
Katie
Sales Manager

Katie truly is a perfectionist at heart and enjoys every bit of detailing any event! She fell in love with events when she started her career in the hospitality industry in 2011. Over the years Katie has worked in this industry in sales and operational management in California and Colorado, finally making the permanent switch to events in Arizona at the Ranch in 2021. She enjoys hiking with her dog Zoe in her spare time and says there is no mountain too difficult to climb in order to enjoy the best views of the breathtaking Arizona sunsets.

Favorite Wedding Moment: Like Hanna, there’s just something about the love (and sometimes tears) in the Groom’s eyes when his bride walks down the aisle. Unforgettable moment.

Favorite Ranch Activity: The Horse Release every evening.

Favorite Wedding Movie: Bridesmaids!
