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.

Wow this venue was incredible!! Unbelievable pricing for what you get. They are willing to negotiate and help your dream come true in your budget. The entire staff is extremely responsive, organized, kind and want you to have the best time ever- and that is what happened! I used to think wedding reviews were dumb because everyone loves their wedding but I do not leave 5 stars for everyone and this resort deserves 10 stars!! I accidentally got red wine spilled on my wedding dress and the staff immediately assisted me getting it out and getting back on the dance floor right away. They left us chocolate covered strawberries and champagne in the honeymoon suite and my husbands favorite candy. The wedding cake that was included was absolutely stunning and everyone raved about it. I can't wait for this to be the location we spend future anniversaries reminiscing in our love story. It is also slightly hidden which makes it more of a gem than other hotels also.

We worked with Kayla for most of the process and she became family to us. Although she was about to give birth, she wanted to make sure that she didn't miss our day. She responded to our emails very promptly and was very clear in her communication. The tasting was a blast and we were able to customize things so that it was exactly what we wanted. We have people that have severe allergies and they were very considerate of this. Specifically, one of our guest has Celiac Disease and will get really sick from gluten. Usually she has to have salad with vinegar and not really enjoy eating. Somehow, they were able to make the chicken meal completely gluten free (even to the cooking style) and she was so excited to be able to eat the same as everyone and it was the first good meal she had eaten in a while. Overall, our guests still claim that the food was the best they have ever had (including food outside of wedding food). The resort is so beautiful and unique and was perfect for our guests that were mainly out of town. We worked with Selma as our catering organizer for the day and she made sure the food was out (and still warm) while making sure that the bride and groom had drinks. Our bartender was a hoot and our guests couldn't stop talking about how great he was and the drinks. The cake was through the venue and they did better than the picture we sent them and the florist is the sweetest woman in the world and our flowers are still beautiful weeks later. They were even able to squeeze us in this beautiful presidential suite which made the getting ready process so much fun and the night even more special. By having everything there, it made coordinating so flawless and reduced a ton of stress. I am so happy that we used this venue and can't recommend it enough. Make sure to add it to your list to check out and you will love it too.

From the first meeting to our wedding day, we had a wonderful experience with The Scottsdale Resort and Conference Center. Besides the beautiful property, the wedding package options are flexible and seemed to fulfill anyone's needs. Amanda was our wonderful wedding coordinator. Her organization, follow through and communication was beyond exceptional. We used the in house florist- Kathy! She was amazing and was really able to take my vision for a romantic reception and make it come alive. Mary- was the in house baker. She made a beautiful tiered cake for us that matched the design I shared with her. Having our wedding reception here was an absolute dream and we were so pleased with every aspect of our experience!
