A desert botanical garden wedding is not just about luxury. This venue actually uses the money to preserve and protect the earth's natural resources. The sandy color is a perfect contrast to any traditional white wedding gown. At night, the temperature drops comfortably, so any wedding would be best set to dusk and after sunset if it is in the summer or spring. The venue has several places for pictures and seating. My favorite is the outdoor picnic area. Your guest can watch the sun set and watch the beautiful sun set across the desert. The north patio is a perfect indoor place for a reception if you don't want to get your tuxes or dresses dirty. Plus there is air conditioning!!! This venue is located very close to Papago Golf course so your uncles can have someplace to gossip before and after the wedding. This location is also close to the Phoenix city zoo. This zoo is a great location for your friends and family members to take their children before and after services. This venue is located only a few miles from a United States Army base. If you are your guest are in the military, you can stay on base for a fraction of the costs of a normal hotel with the same sort of accommodations. If your wedding is small, then there are also several rooms that accommodate about 50 people. Since there are several rooms at this venue, you can have a separate room for small children and for grown-ups.
