Head to Paradise Valley for one of the most stunning Arizona wedding venues. El Chorro is a collection of nine venues in one, making it pretty much the ultimate event center for Arizona weddings. With views of both Camelback and Mummy Mountains, the event lawns at El Chorro are real showstoppers for an outdoor wedding. The largest lawn, Casa Pavilion Wedding Lawn, boasts 6,500 square feet of manicured landscape and can accommodate up to 300 wedding guests. For a more intimate wedding ceremony there’s the South Lawn (ideal for guests lists up to 120 guests) or the Classroom Event Lawn, which is smaller but enjoys being in the shadow of Mummy Mountain. While El Chorro is one of the best outdoor wedding venues Arizona offers, there are also options at this wedding venue for couples who want to wed indoors. The Casa Paloma Pavilion is a banquet hall for up to 300 guests; The Classroom Bar is a beautifully restored historic space while the Gallery and Landmark Rooms are the best of both worlds — indoor and outdoor — since they open up to gorgeous patios with views of the desert.
