Just Stop Looking. You've found your venue!
This place is a hidden gem! So very unique and very Western. Everyone who works here is 100% on your side when it comes to making your special day a wonderful day. If you have the option in your budget Marie Yates can be your biggest asset when it comes to this place. She is a wonderful coordinator and will give you the moon if she needs to.
So if you want a wonderful western outdoor wedding under the milky way at an amazing price point, STOP LOOKING! You found it!Sent on 11/12/2020

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!Sent on 10/29/2019
