About Val Vista Lakes

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.

    Such a beautiful day! Awesome Venue!

    So I’m gonna give you future brides a little heads up about Val Vista Lakes. In the summer - up until September 30th - Val Bista Lakes will give you a great deal to book their venue because that’s Arizona wedding off-season (cuz it TOO DANG HOT!). There are three areas you can rent at Val Vista Lakes (aside from the conference hall but that’s not wedding related): the reception hall, the grassy oval (good for a ceremony), and the Palm Patio (perfect for a cocktail hour. With any rental you have to at LEAST rent the reception hall (which you could use as your ceremony and/or reception area), but you can also the grassy oval, palm patio, or both! I ended up renting both and booked my wedding date for September 21st and got 25% off the rental! So if I’d booked any other time of year (fall through early spring) I would've had to pay $5600 but it ended up only costing me $4200(and that’s including the deposit that was later refunded to me)! And The great thing about Val Vista Lakes is that when you book with them, yours is the ONLY event going on at that Venue, no competing for parking, no wandering guests. And you can also take pictures just about anywhere around the venue, in the pretty beach lagoon, or up on the hill and around the waterfalls, it’s gorgeous!
    The rental only comes with tables, chairs and your choice of special color lighting in the reception hall, but that was perfect for me cuz I could choose whoever I wanted for my vendors(which was a rather unusual bunch lol). Also you could rent more things on top of the space such as a boat (it IS by a lake!), a TV to show video or slideshows and Chiavari chair upgrades. I didn’t end up renting those cuz I couldn’t afford them but they were still really cool options!
    The event managers were really helpful and very communicative and at the end of the event they even gave me this beautiful frame as a gift! How cool is that??

    Best decision

    We’re so happy we chose Val Vista Lakes. We got married on 3/16/19 and everything was perfect. The staff is helpful and responsive, the updated ballroom is gorgeous and the grounds make for beautiful pictures. I loved that we were able to bring in all our vendors and customize our perfect wedding. I would absolutely recommend- in fact, I already have. A friend of mine is getting married there in March of next year.
