Beautiful Venue and Amazing Team
Thank you again to Nicole and Team for pulling together our wedding during 2020. They were amazing about working with us as plans changed and our guest count had to be reduced. We got to have the Brunch wedding we always wanted with incredible food. They were able to re-create everything we had hoped for while allowing for our families to stay safe and healthy.

Beautiful, Desert Venue
I could not be happier with my wedding experience, and I am thankful for Sarah and the Tanque Verde Ranch team for helping it be that way. Sarah's accountability and organization made my wedding planning and execution exactly what I wanted it to be while minimizing any stress, She makes the planning another fun event in the wedding process and makes me as a bride just enjoy the ride.
The venue itself was surreal in its beauty. We had multiple people tell us the backdrop of cactus view (where we had the ceremony) almost looked fake it was so beautiful. We were able to incorporate the incredible Tucson desert on our day and had the most lovely photos. The ceremony and reception felt intimate, though not at all cramped, as we have experienced in other wedding venues, The food was fantastic and the prickly pear margaritas were definitely my favorite. All in all, I could not be more happy with this fantastic venue.Sent on 03/14/2020

Truly the most magical!
We got married at TVR in November and couldn't be more thrilled with our choice. We knew right away it was the perfect venue for us - elegant with an incredible desert setting. We can't stress enough how glad we are we picked TVR; they truly understand hospitality and event production and went above and beyond to make our wedding an event we were proud to host for guests from all over the country and world.Sent on 02/02/2020
Sarah Lee was AMAZING to work with. For over a year we corresponded mostly by phone and email as we live out of state. She made the planning process easy even from afar but most importantly her attention to every detail that I would have never thought of was tremendous. I felt so secure even up to the day of knowing she had thought of and planned for everything. The entire staff who helped with our wedding were all incredibly helpful, kind and knew exactly what to do and when. Our guests were very complimentary of everyone at TVR they interacted with, including the servers and bar staff, who exuded genuine hospitality. My husband and I stayed at the Ranch for several days after our wedding and pretty much everyone on staff continued to make us feel like we were incredibly special.
I could go on - but to summarize we absolutely love TVR - it's a special and magical place that has a real sense of place and history, and an incredible staff to execute your wedding to perfection.
