The Scottsdale Resort at McCormick Ranch

Responds within 24 hours


Established in 1976, The Scottsdale Resort and Spa is a wedding venue located in Scottsdale, Arizona. Originally, the site was founded as the first conference resort in the country. Through modern renovations, The Scottsdale Conference Center transformed into the facility it is today. At this establishment, soon-to-be newlyweds can enjoy the natural Sonoran Desert beauty while still in close proximity to many local shops, clubs, and restaurants.

Facilities and Capacity

Whether couples are planning an intimate or grand wedding, they will find accommodating, expansive event spaces at the Scottsdale Resort at McCormick Ranch. Depending on the setting selected, up to 1,000 guests can fit comfortably. For an elegant ceremony, the ballrooms, with their classic decor and sparkling fixtures, are sure to impress. The romantic Grand Coronado Ballroom adds a sense of sophistication to any event, featuring details such as the 12-foot teardrop-crystal chandeliers. Adjacent to this space is the Sunset Plaza which offers a refreshing open-air setting. Outdoors, there are six unique sites for couples to choose from. The tucked-away Alameda area features a soft sandstone courtyard that can accommodate 50 to 500 loved ones. For a more intimate event, the Garden Court is a quaint space decorated with natural stone tiles and soft lighting. The Paradise Park Lawn welcomes guests through a rustic gate under swaying palm trees. Spanish colonial hallways frame this grass area, reflecting the surrounding impressive architecture. In Bennie’s Courtyard, couples and their loved ones are invited to dine and dance under twinkling lights and beside a grand stone fireplace. Any of these event spaces can be personalized to meet the soon-to-be newlyweds’ vision. All of the sites, both indoors and outdoors, provide a scenic desert backdrop for wedding photographs, as well.

    This review is a little late, but our wedding in March 2022 was absolutely amazing! As many reviews mention, Emily is so great to work with-- she is SO responsive, professional, and just super cool! She communicated so well with our planner and vendors to make sure everything was perfect on the day of! Most of our guests were from out of town and many of them stayed at the hotel. We got rave reviews about the accommodations, the food, and, of course, the wedding! Highly recommend Emily & The Scottsdale Resort at McCormick Ranch!
