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.Sent on 10/05/2015

When I first showed my fiance' The Gage Hotel, she immediately noticed what I'd seen visiting there previously on motorcycle trips - the place has a great vibe! Then when we met Ann there to discuss our wedding, I found out just what an amazing place it is. Ann listened to what we wanted in a wedding - intimate, small, private, outside, and with amazing food - a celebration that would never be forgotten. She suggested a sunset wedding on the Kiva, with a private dinner on the restaurant patio next to the fireplace. Ann absolutely hit the ball out of the park! Following our first meeting, Ann arranged the cake (from a baker in Marfa), the flowers, and all the other details that wedding planners typically charge a fortune for. On wedding day, the Kiva wasn't blocked to outsiders, but we had the place completely to ourselves. Ann coordinated all the details on timing of the ceremony, arranged for champagne to be chilling on the patio for a post-vow toast, and made sure our dinner was spectacular. All our guests stayed in the historic hotel and my wife and I stayed in the carriage house.Sent on 04/21/2014
I can't say enough good things about The Gage. The wedding planning was perfect (and very reasonably priced relative to other places we considered), the staff were incredibly friendly, and the setting, with a beautiful historical hotel set in a part of the world that provides some of the best sunsets you'll ever see, was simply perfect.
We've already booked our room in the carriage house for Valentine's Day next year - we'll be back every year to celebrate a wonderful union shared at The Gage.
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.
