We had our ceremony in the trellis garden and it was magnificent. The flora around the garden was well kept and beautiful. It was the perfect setting for our sunset wedding as the sun set directly behind the altar. There was a few patches of mud towards the back, but this was easily avoided.
The Mohave Ballroom was the location of our reception. The room was perfectly located next to bathrooms, near the ceremony, and near the main parking lot if guests wanted to leave early. It fit our 100 guests easily and could have fit 50 more. The room did get quite warm, even in December, and we had to constantly have the doors open to cool the room down.
Kristine Lowe was our wedding coordinator for a short time (as the previous coordinator no longer worked for the Wigwam), but our time with her was excellent. She was efficient, communicated well, punctual, and saw to our every need. She waited in the cold for our late rehearsal members patiently, brought super glue to the bridal sweet for emergency dress repairs, assisted groomsmen with placing boutonnières, made sure our cards and gifts were delivered to our room for the wedding night safely and securely, and assisted with day of setup for ceremony and reception decorations. She was an invaluable asset to our wedding day.
The service staff were awesome. They were efficient, unobtrusive, and saw to all of our guests needs quickly. Food, cake, and champagne was brought to every guest. The bartender was cordial and made sure the groom (and the father of the bride) got the good scotch. INSERT NAME HERE made sure the bride and groom always had a drink in our hands.

I must just start by saying I got lucky in finding everyone we did to make our wedding day so special. Years ago, before marriage was even a thought, we visited Wigwam and it just sort of stuck with us ever since. We got engaged and we’re looking at venues 2 weeks later. The very first place we wanted to check was Wigwam but didn’t want to be let down with the price, since we were thinking it was going to be so high! We checked out a couple more venues then went to Wigwam. We were so surprised to find the prices were much lower than we anticipated and we met an AMAZING woman who helped us with everything along the way. Kristine was so very nice and helpful, and as the process continued she got even better! Eventually as a planning bride, I was calling her a few times a month to ask some pretty stupid questions and even just to vent about a few things going on and she listened and helped out as much as she could. We did our rehearsal dinner at Wigwam on the patio the night before and the food was just amazing! All of the beautiful sights at Wigwam made for a night we will never forget, not to mention our pictures came out perfect with all of the scenery they provide! I will recommend Wigwam to ANYONE, and I hope if you do choose them, you get to meet Kristine! Thank you all so much for making our wedding so perfect and all of the help along the way!!!

I had my dream destination wedding at the Wigwam, since planning from Florida it was important to us to have someone easily accessible and that communicated well. Our first visit was a drop in visit and Kristine and Allison we're readily available and happy to assist. We primary worked with Kristine and she did an amazing job always answering questions when I would reach out. We stopped by in October to do our food tasting and walk through, Kristine did a fantastic job laying out all the options to us as well as making sure we knew all the details. When we checked in Kristine met us at the desk and gave me her cellphone number encase we needed anything- which she was always on top of. Day of the wedding everything went perfectly without any issues (that I am aware of) The food was amazing. The decor and set up was amazing. The Bellstaff are seriously the most friendly bellstaff I've ever encountered. The staff that hosted our dinner the night of the event were on their toes to make sure my husband and I were happy and well taken care of. John and Hayley at the Wigwam bar are THE BEST EVER! hands down- fantastic service. I am extremely satisfied with hosting my wedding here and would do it over and over again.
I do however have to mention, the room block coordinator was extremely difficult to the point we didn't create a room block which was slightly disappointing. However, the rooms side is a separate department then the event side. The event team, front desk, bell staff and bar staff are all fantastic and deserve high praise.
Thank you Kristine for everything, dream wedding. :)
We always look forward to our events at The Wigwam! Alison is so great to work with. You will know when you walk in The Wigwam that these folks care about your day, your way!
