The Scottsdale Resort at McCormick Ranch, which is a wedding venue located in Scottsdale, Arizona, originally opened its doors in 1976. However, this site originally did not start off as a wedding venue. In fact, it was founded as the first ever conference resort in the entire country. It was through much renovation that the Scottsdale Conference Center transformed into this premiere facility. At this site, couples and guests will be able to enjoy the perfect combination of natural Sonoran Desert beauty while being conveniently situated near many of the best local shopping, clubs, and restaurants.

Emily Kix is amazing to work with.
I am getting married at Scottsdale Resort at McCormick Ranch in April 2020. Before I got engaged, I had pictured my wedding at Scottsdale Resort at McCormick Ranch. Love the resort that it's hidden off the beaten path, and its own oasis. Very cute and quaint, and love Paradise Park Lawn and the ballrooms are a great size with amazing chandeliers. I have planned events for a living, and I know how important the staff is to your special day. Let me just say, Emily blew me away. I was already in love with the resort, but did have other options in mind, but I didnt have to keep looking when I was working with Emily. I had a lot of questions, and she was so quick to respond, and listened to me as I explained what i was looking for. She had photos to show to visualize, she understood my budget, and overall an amazing personality and person to work with. Emily is top notch, and I am beyond excited to have her help plan my big day. She is proactive with recommendations when she starts to see your vision, and totally sold the venue to me. There are so many venues out there, but not all have amazing service like Emily Kix.Sent on 10/02/2019
