Get a Taste of Tanque Verde Before Your Big Day


With 350 days of sunshine a year, Tucson is considered the sunniest city in the United States. What better way to ensure that your wedding day is flawless than to have it in Arizona? Tanque Verde Ranch is placed in the elegant Sonoran Desert where the cacti are fruitful and the mountains stand tall on the horizon.  We know it’s important to pick the right venue for your big day, so we put together a package for those of you who want to dip your toes in the water before diving in. When considering your venue it is important to look into all aspects.  Everything from the food, the wedding planner, and the setting can make an impact on your big day.  For 4+ years Tanque Verde has received The Knot recognition at a noteworthy wedding venue and has been added to the Hall of Fame. Passed bride’s reviews on The Knot highlight both our venues and dedication of our team. “This venue captures the beauty of the desert with elegance, authenticity and warmth. The ranch provided a truly authentic backdrop for our wedding, which made for stunning photographs and breathtaking views. Or guests were enamored with the sunsets, cactus and mountain views. Many of them have said, “it didn’t look real, I felt like we were staring at a green screen and at any minute someone would pull up the curtain”.
