    Full-Service Wedding Venue in Historic Downtown Tucson

    As parents of the bride, we can’t thank Candace, Wilma, and the entire Stillwell House staff enough for providing a fairytale wedding for their hometown girl. Clients should not be tempted to decorate the venue; everything is already perfectly and elegantly dressed, from the exterior courtyard to the Bride’s and Groom’s Dressing Rooms. The Stillwell House Team has anticipated every detail including a gift and card hutch and even an exquisite wedding cake knife. The menu is extensive and includes locally-sourced and regional flavors from a trusted family with deep culinary roots in Tucson. Dinner for 135 people, served hot and simultaneously, is no easy feat. Kudos to the wait staff and professional bartender as well.

    Smooth As Possible

    This team truly made our wedding day go seamlessly. If there were any issues, we had no idea. They made sure we had drinks and had a taste of our appetizers. They coordinated and decorated and were fantastic. Every guest said the place looked beautiful and the best wedding they attended.

    Perfect Night

    The Stillwell House gave me the wedding of my dreams and took it to the next level! Maria from the stillwell house made sure that my look of my wedding was absolutely beautiful and asked me about the smallest details that I would have never thought of until it was too late 😂 I knew she had it all covered and I could relax and get ready to get married! Jennifer was a day of coordinator and let me know everything I needed to properly manage our time for the wedding. The quality of the food was incredible, the venue was gorgeous, staff amazing and all of our guests had the best time. They took many precautions to ensure that we were covid safe and let us know in advance what restrictions needed to be met to be in compliance and ensure our guests safety. I really appreciated this! Overall, not a single complaint, only the best compliments!!!

My favorite venue to work with! Kelly, Candace, and Wilma do an outstanding job of making weddings run smoothly. They go to extra mile to personalize their venue with colors and decor to match each unique wedding. The venue is flexible with every request myself or my brides have had, again, truly allowing for each bride to have their own special day.
