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

But with Emily's guidance, timely responses and recommendations of vendor's the wedding day wasSent on 11/07/2019

The Scottsdale Resort at McCormick Ranch
We couldn’t have picked a better venue for our wedding than The Scottsdale Resort at McCormick Ranch. We toured a lot of other venues and resorts prior to visiting McCormick Ranch and once we saw the grounds of the resort, we knew that this would be a perfect setting for our special weekend. Our wedding was multicultural that mixed both Hindu and Buddhist traditions and took place over 2 days and consisted of 4 separate events. Everything turned out better than we could have ever imagined thanks to the staff of the resort.Sent on 11/18/2019
We can’t say enough great things about Chef Subhi. Each event of our wedding had food service and Chef Subhi created amazing menus for each meal. His knowledge and execution of the traditional Indian dishes blew our mind. He was able to execute everything from Indian street foods, traditional Indian dishes, and also mix in an Asian fusion style that bridged the gap of pallets of taste. People that attended are still raving about the delicious food Chef Subhi was able to make.
Our wedding cake made by the inhouse baker Mary was amazing!!! Her ability to not only bake a delicious cake, the ability to artfully design it with our color scheme took it over the top.
We had a lot of out of town guests that needed to be situated for the weekend. Debra was able to coordinate with us and our wedding planner in order to make everyone’s lodging situation seamless.
None of this would have been possible without the hard work of Emily Kix. The moment we met her to discuss our possible wedding plans we knew that the McCormick Ranch was the venue for our wedding. She made us feel comfortable and was awesome to work with. Without her coordination with our wedding planner our wonderful wedding weekend would not have been as amazing as it turned out!!! We highly recommend The Scottsdale Resort at McCormick Ranch!!!
