    Arizona ambiance at its finest

    Had my wedding in October. We had to plan fairly quickly and when saw Vulture City in the venue listing I knew I had to be married there. Being from AZ I wanted that desert, old mining ghost town vibe. I don’t think there is a more accurate description for Vulture City. As soon as drive up to take a look we knew for sure this was the place. Robin and Maria were so helpful through the whole process I didn’t have to stress about a thing. It was so beautiful at sunset and with all the lights on and fire going at night made for the perfect reception. I couldn’t have asked for. More perfect day or wedding! Robin and Maria will be friends for life! If I could give 10 stars I would. Thank you for making my special day everything I had ever dreamed!
