    Perfect wedding weekend in a desert oasis

    Michelle and the rest of the team at the Gage were phenomenal to work with. They were very in-tune with what we were looking for, and did everything possible to make sure they provided what we were envisioning and that our guests were comfortable. The room block was easy to manage, the rooms were perfect, the flowers were absolutely phenomenal, and the food was the best anyone had ever had at a wedding.

    I highly recommend you talking to the Gage if you're considering getting married in the Big Bend area. All of our guests continue to rave about the Gage, and we are so happy that we chose to get married in Marathon.

    The Gage Hotel made my dream wedding come true. We had almost all of our guests stay there, so it was awesome that nobody had to leave once the "party" was over. Ann Urban is absolutely incredible. She will work with your budget, preferences, and any specifics you want.

The Gage Hotel is one of the most beautiful wedding venues I've ever been to. They spend a lot of time and invest much of their money on maintaining their grounds which means it's incredibly photogenic. I've been fortunate enough to shoot there and see their amazing team put together gorgeous weddings in all aspects of the day. They have large grounds which means there are many spots to pick from in terms of ceremony location and photo ops. Their floral design team is creative, spunky, and flexible - they're good at what they do and also love doing it. The Gage also pulls off some amazing meals with their stellar restaurant team and will often pair florals with their delicious wedding cakes. Off of the main hotel grounds, The Gage has an immense garden full of walking paths, a wire gazebo, and native plants. There are numerous suites and even a whole mansion full of lush southwestern decor that can be rented out for wedding parties. Their spa is incredibly relaxing and a great place for the bridal party to get ready before the big day. Not to mention, the location is smack dab in the middle of one of the most photogenic and magical desert areas around! Their team caters to their clients in an intimate way, and makes sure weddings run smoothly and on schedule. This is of course not only good for clients, but great for a photographer like myself, who can work best when everything falls into place at the right time. I can't recommend this venue enough.
