Dream Wedding at a Spectacular Venue
TLDR: If you’re looking for a stunning desert venue with an amazing staff and delicious food, Tanque Verde Ranch is your place. We couldn’t have dreamed of a more beautiful wedding.Sent on 11/06/2019
It’s difficult to put into words how the team at Tanque Verde Ranch made our wedding absolutely incredible. Their professionalism and attention to detail are beyond expectations. The venue itself is stunning and offers unique, Southwestern scenery that our 85 out-of-town guests were in awe over. We loved transitioning from Cactus View for the ceremony and cocktail hour, to Desert View Terrace for dinner, and then sparklers before cake and dancing in the Saguaro Room. The variety of venue options keeps the reception fresh with guests experiencing new spaces throughout the evening. We received countless compliments on the venue and delicious food, and guests loved the prickly pear margaritas passed around after the ceremony. Shoutout to Denise for always being a friendly face at the bar! And to the TVR banquet staff for being attentive to us as the bride and groom, and to all our guests. They made sure we ate by providing a plate of hors d’oeuvres for our marriage license signing following the ceremony, and by walking us through the buffet line at the beginning of dinner. Eating at your wedding is not a problem here. Finally, the cherry on top to our dream of a wedding was returning to our bridal suite filled with candles, rose petals, champagne and chocolate strawberries. I mentioned this before, but the thoughtfulness and attention to detail here are truly amazing.
Now, from the bride’s individual perspective: Sarah Lee and her team are some of the most wonderful people I’ve worked with. They were so professional and responsive throughout the entire planning process. I’m very Type A when it comes to event planning and, for once, was able to let go of control and let Sarah and her team handle everything the day-of. They really did handle everything: setting up our decor and potted-plant centerpieces, keeping the timeline on track and working with our photographers, DJ, baker and guitarist so they knew where to be the day-of. I also recommend finding vendors who are familiar with the venue for peace of mind. It was truly special to feel 100% confident letting go of the logistics and simply enjoy my wedding. Sarah and the TVR team were so on top of things and created a magical celebration. Thank you for everything!

My perfect dream "Hey Dude" Ranch Wedding
Sarah Lee, the Sales Manager, and her team at the Tanque Verde Ranch (TVR) have such incredible passion for not only their profession and the ranch itself, but a love affair for creating, planning, and capturing the perfect wedding day.
I never dreamed that I would be getting married at the same magical dude ranch that my favorite childhood show on Nickelodeon, "Hey Dude" was filmed at back in the late 80's, early 90s. TVR has everything and more.
In October 2018, I was on a mission to find and book a destination wedding venue for the following year, considering I was less than two months away from a military deployment overseas. That is when I first connected with Sarah Lee. My entire experience to include not only the wedding day itself, October 13, 2019, but leading up to it was simply flawless in communication, planning, coordination, and execution. Sarah and her team removed any stress from having to plan a wedding from 7,000 miles away and were directly responsible for giving me my perfect dude ranch wedding. I consider Sarah Lee and the staff at TVR to be lifelong friends because of this.

Everything we could have asked for and more
We truly had an amazing wedding, and Tanque Verde Ranch (Sarah, Hanna, and Nicole in particular) were a huge part of making that happen. Everyone was extremely professional and organized, but also very warm. I'm details person, and while we grew up in Tucson, we were planning the wedding from all the way in Chicago, so I was pretty stressed about making sure every aspect of the wedding was just right. I was impressed and relieved when over and over again I found that the Tanque Verde staff had really thought of everything, even things I hadn't really considered. No question I had or detail that concerned me was overlooked, and Sarah stayed in constant communication with me throughout the whole planning process. The actual day of could not have gone smoother. Again, Tanque Verde had really thought of everything, and their experience and attention to detail made it so we could really sit back, relax, and enjoy our day (the amazing bridal getting ready suite certainly didn't hurt!). The food was amazing, the setting was the elegant display of desert beauty that I hoped for, and I still have guests reaching out to me to say it was the most fun wedding they had ever been to. We can't thank Sarah and everyone at Tanque Verde enough for making our wedding day perfect.Sent on 04/02/2019

I have worked many weddings here and love every single one of them!! Working with Mary Ellen and Elise has been great!!! They are very organized and hard working to make that specific day special!
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!
