About

The Tempe Center for the Arts (TCA) is one of the finest venues in Arizona for a stunning and dramatic wedding – a jewel in the crown of a city known for its support of the arts. The TCA is located on the southwest end of Tempe Town Lake and resides in a beautifully landscaped 17-acre lakeside art park. The magnificent Tempe Center for the Arts facility was designed by Tempe-based Architekton and award-winning Barton Myers Associates of Los Angeles. The 88,000 square-foot facility features an outdoor patio, art gallery and the ultimate room with a view — Lakeside — which overlooks Tempe Town Lake, the Papago Buttes and Camelback Mountain.

    We had our wedding ceremony at the Tempe Center for the Arts in the Lakeside Room. Our wedding was in July, so we were looking for indoor ceremony options. Tempe Center for the Arts was a very affordable and easy to work with! We had several consultations to determine the best location for the indoor wedding and once we decided on the Lakeside Room, how best to setup the space for our ceremony. Everyone at the TCA answered all of our questions and walked us through the process and helped us realize our vision. I definitely recommend the Tempe Center for the Arts - especially as a beautiful indoor option for a wedding ceremony or reception. Being right on the water was spectacular!

    TCA was AWESOME. The ceremony was beautiful on the North Patio. They allowed our DJ to use his own equipment instead of setting up their speakers/mic/sound board. We planned this from NC and Seth Willey was great to work with. They were totally flexible on having my parents do our final walk through, letting us come and see it when we had a moment in town, and day of, I couldn't have asked for a better attendant.

    I would HIGHLY recommend TCA for a wedding venue. The pricing was fair since it's owned/operated by the city, but you are limited to the caterers/alcohol providers. We had no issues whatsoever and the day went off without any issues!
