Amazing Wedding Venue
My wedding with Tanque Verde Guest Ranch was executed perfectly. The entire staff was helpful and supportive since our first consultation.
The food is FANTASTIC. You can’t find better food anywhere else. The chefs do amazing work and are willing to work with their dishes if there’s an allergy.
The venue itself is beautiful and well kept. There are beautiful views. Beautiful rooms. Beautiful everything. My guests were so happy to stay on such a beautiful property.
Sarah Lee is your go-to person. She handles everything for you and makes wedding planning a breeze. There’s no one else I’d rather have than her helping me plan my wedding. Everything went smoothly and according to plan.
Hands down the best wedding venue you could get.

Tanque Verde Ranch - Best Weddings EVER!
Let’s talk about first impressions - I called TVR on a whim just to see if I could walk around and look as a potential bride. I was not asking for a tour since I had not scheduled one and the immediate answer was, “Let us see if someone can take you around!”. That was definitely not the answer I expected, I just wanted to make sure it was okay if I walked around the grounds (totally would have been) by myself to see if I liked it. The Director of Sales, Mary Ellen, took about 1 ½-2 hours out of her day to give me the full tour of TVR, which was so kind and generous ESPECIALLY when I did not have an appointment! Based on my first impression of how beautiful all of TVR is and the helpfulness of everybody, I wanted to get married there! It also fit my and my husband’s (YAY) vibe of outdoorsy/desert-y.
The MVP of all time is Sarah Lee, Sales Manager. She and I were in contact throughout all the planning of my wedding. She always responded to my emails thoroughly and promptly. Especially the the week/weeks leading up to the wedding we were talking a LOT about all the little details and she was just so amazing and on top of it, helping me with MANY THINGS that I had not even thought of (thank GOSH).
The room block that comes with having a wedding there is nice, it DOES get released 1 month prior to the wedding, so I would suggest letting all your guests know about it a couple months in advance so that everyone who wants a room is able to get one. Our wedding was at the beginning of February so all the people coming in for the Gem show were coming in and there was another event the night off which booked up most of the rooms when it got announced, so make sure all your peoples have a room about 2-3 months in advance! I also booked my room for Friday night prior to the wedding, so that I could just wake up and be there and it was absolutely worth it.
Getting married at Tanque Verde was like a dream. The bridal suite is fantastic (the mountain views are ammazzinng!) and the whole area is just so fantastically beautiful. We got married at Cactus View (MY FAVORITE) and they have taken out the tennis court right next to it, so now it is a lovely open lawn instead of a tennis court and it looks AMAZING. I loved that the food was included in the wedding package because it was so nice to not have to find a caterer. PLUS the food is absolutely DELICIOUS. The reception was in the Saguaro room and it was so beautiful in there! The cocktail hour was on the front lawn and the wedding guests got to see the horses turned out!
There are so many special touches that TVR helped add to the wedding day in addition to their amazing staff and the gorgeous location. I would recommend anyone that wants a beautiful, desert wedding to get married here. The only thing I had to do on my wedding day was getting ready and taking pictures and getting married, and that was it! I did not lift a finger to do anything, it was the best, most relaxing morning I could have imagined for our wedding day. I cannot recommend them enough for weddings, it was a truly amazing experience!

Our Dream Wedding in the Southwest
Tanque Verde Ranch served as the wedding venue of our dreams! We could not recommend this venue more highly for any and every special event! Upon first visit to the ranch, we were blown away by the sheer beauty of the grounds. Sarah Lee and Hannah, our event coordinators, impressed us with their steadfast kindness, continuous guidance and support, and constant professionalism. They also act as your onsite, day-of wedding coordinators and helped to ensure that our wedding day was seamless. The spaces were set up and decorated immaculately by the staff. Our guests could not stop raving about the beauty of the venue and the delicious, gourmet food!
The desert scenery of Tanque Verde Ranch also served as the most beautiful backdrop for stunning photographs. We took our bride and groom portraits up near the "Old Homestead" with sweeping views of mountains, open sky, and majestic saguaros. We selected Cactus View as our ceremony site, Rincon Terrace for cocktail hour, and Saguaro Room for our reception – all such wonderful spaces the ranch offers.
Tanque Verde Ranch felt like a destination getaway for our out-of-town guests staying on the property and our local friends and family alike! As part of our wedding package, we were also able to select a ranch activity to do together. We chose to go horseback riding! It was my husband’s first time ever on a horse, and it was so much fun. We held our rehearsal dinner for out-of-town family/friends at the Saturday night Cowboy Cookout. It was a fantastic spread of BBQ fare, a cowboy singer, and firepits with s’mores. It truly set the scene for our wedding weekend.
Tanque Verde Ranch has our hearts. We are finding excuses to go back and visit the Dog House Saloon for a prickly pear margarita and a round of pool before heading down to the cookout to reminisce about the best weekend of our lives! Thank you, TVR! Do yourself a favor and get married here. It will be the best choice you’ll ever make (besides choosing your significant other to spend forever with, of course).

Beautiful Ranch setting on the far east side of Tucson. For that old west, Desert sunset wedding you can not do any better than the Tanque Verde Guest Ranch!
