Arizona’s Best Outdoor Reception Venue


Tanque Verde has been honored with yet another award to showcase the integrity of creating an entirely splendid wedding. This year, The Ranch has received the award of Best Outdoor Reception Venue by Arizona Bride Magazine, voted by over 10,000 readers for the publication’s Best of 2015 list, which features the year’s best wedding vendors, from dressmakers to custom cakes. Lindsay on Wedding Wire said, “The Tanque Verde Guest Ranch far exceeded my expectations for my wedding. The actual property is gorgeous, and my husband and I loved that, between our rehearsal dinner, ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception, our guests were able to experience 4 completely different and unique settings.” Venue options range from the Rincon Terrace located just off of the Saguaro Forest and Rincon Mountain Ranch, to the Old Homestead, a stone building form the early 1930’s that gives you a rustic western feel, which is hard to find anywhere else. Getting engaged and planning a wedding is the most exciting, yet stressful time in a person’s life, but at Tanque Verde Ranch we strive to make the experience as exciting and stress free as possible. The weddings staff takes pride in everything they do and want to ensure that you’re needs are met and have the wedding of your dreams. A private user on Wedding Wire stated, “Mary Ellen and Elise are phenomenal wedding coordinators. They were STELLAR from the first moment we started planning and instilled immediate confidence. They never missed a single detail all the way through the end of the reception; in fact, they even remembered details that I forgot throughout the months of planning.” The Ranch has not only received Best Outdoor Wedding Venue, but is a part of The Knot Best of Weddings Hall of Fame. This means that the location has won the Best of Awards 4+ years. The Ranch also received the Wedding Wire Couples’ Choice Award in 2014. A lot more than just a beautiful location goes into receiving awards such as these. In order to make this happen, one needs to have dedicated employees who want your wedding to be as amazing as you do, which you’re sure to find at Tanque Verde Ranch. With the best outdoor reception areas in the state of Arizona, of course you’re going to want to have your wedding at one of these areas. However, Tanque Verde catering sales manager, Mary Ellen, stresses, "While choosing an outdoor venue, remember that Mother Nature doesn’t always follow the same path as your vision. Always choose a venue which has an alternate indoor space for that special day." When you’re considering where to execute one of the most important days in your life, don’t settle for anything less than the best.
