This review is so long overdue and I could never write enough good things about my experience with the Boulders. This venue literally saved my wedding. Our wedding was postponed due to COVID and only 7 days before our new, rescheduled date, the original venue essentially said it couldn’t happen. The Boulders swooped in, on a one week notice, and completely 100% pulled off our dream wedding. They took all of the stress of the crazy situation off of my shoulders and assured me that they would take care of everything. They took all of our ideas and plans and simply made it happen. Instead of asking us to review & choose from their menu, they literally took the menu we had planned and made it. There was nothing that they couldn’t make happen.
Aside from their incredible work to pull together our wedding, The Boulders itself is breathtaking. I can’t imagine a more beautiful backdrop than Promise Rock, and the sunset from the ballroom deck had all of our guests talking. Our pictures are breathtaking and the grounds are so versatile. The food was so delicious that we made room for seconds and people are still talking about it 4 months later.
Greater than everything I’ve already written, are the people at the Boulders. Let me assure you, every single person on staff here will make each of your guests feel welcomed and well taken care of. For example, I had a young cousin from out of state who arrived around 3am after her flight before the big day. She was met at the gate by name and cheerfully greeted “we’ve been expecting you!” I still have chills thinking about our wedding day and there is no doubt in my mind that the reason our big day was a such a success is due to their hard work and heart. Thank you to the Boulders, and an especially huge shout out to Erin and Harold.Sent on 03/20/2021

If you are looking for a Sonoran desert setting, look no further. The Boulders is gorgeous. We had our ceremony at Promise Rock, which has a cactus garden and waterfall and faces the breathtaking boulders. It's private and beautiful, and easy for your guests to access. We held our reception in the Organic Garden in the shadow of the boulders and under the retro sodium string lights. Both locations are so beautiful, you really don't need to do much to decorate. Our guests were blown away by the beauty of both settings. The food -- from appetizers to dinner and the cake -- was delicious. We worked with Juliana to plan our ceremony and reception. She was fantastic! She made planning easy and stress-free. Juliana was easy to communicate with, had great ideas, and made sure every detail was perfect. Lucas attended to us at the reception, and was professional and attentive. We didn't want for a thing all evening! All the staff we interacted with -- at the front desk, the bellmen, room service, at the restaurants, everywhere -- were friendly and professional. The whole weekend was simply perfect.Sent on 10/22/2019
