About

Val Vista Lakes is a wedding venue located in Gilbert, Arizona. Situated only a short drive from downtown Phoenix, this waterfront property promises beautiful views and premier service. You and your guests are invited to whisk yourselves away to a place of wonder and delight. Feel the warm, soft sand rise up and envelop your toes in cushions of white and gold. Experience the wind’s gentle caress as you relax in the shade of a palm tree. Listen to the whispers of the gentle waterfall as you admire the stately majesty of the distant mountains. Take pleasure in the knowledge that your day really can be as big as your dreams.

Facilities and Capacity

Val Vista Lakes is able to accommodate up to 200 guests. The venue is comprised of a number of charming event spaces. The Banquet Room is of Tuscan design and features fine wood, Italian marble tile, and a number of handsome windows. The Grassy Oval is a gorgeous spot for an outdoor wedding. It affords an unimpeded view of the glistening lake. Its position relative to the waterfall means that you and your partner can exchange your vows with that picturesque element perfectly positioned in the background. The Palm Patio is a great place for your guests to mingle and enjoy an after-ceremony cocktail. The Palm Patio and the Grassy Oval are only available with a Banquet Room rental.

Services Offered

Val Vista Lakes prides itself on its flexible planning options. Their goal is to give you the freedom you need to plan the event that you want. The venue does not require you to use an in-house service provider. They are happy to provide you with a list of preferred vendors, but they allow you to assemble your own team. Your chosen caterer is expected to supply all necessary linens. White ceremony chairs, Chiavari reception chairs, a projection screen, and a 32-inch flat-screen TV are available for rental. The venue’s catamaran boat is also available for rental, so you and your guests can enjoy the sights and sounds of the lovely, lounging lakes.
