A small wedding can be one of the most magical ways to tie the knot. Though there’s something special about a big blowout, nothing rivals an intimate ceremony with close family and friends followed by a reception that’s equally as private. Less time greeting friends of friends and coworkers means more time soaking in toasts from your bridal party, savoring your wedding cake, and dancing the night away.
But the other upside to a more intimate event is choosing from the many magical small wedding venues, Arizona style. Exchange vows with views of the Sonoran Desert. Host your reception beneath the cool night sky. Choose a venue with colors and decor indicative of the desert surroundings.
The perfect backdrop for your intimate wedding awaits at The Scottsdale.
Though our Alameda Courtyard has hosted weddings up to 500 people, the space can be dialed back to more intimate weddings of up to 50 guests. Not only will the guest list be small, but the ambiance will remain cozy since this courtyard is located away from the main resort. You’ll feel truly immersed in the romance of the desert.
Garden Court is a quintessential venue for petite celebrations. Natural stone tile and light filtering through the trees give this venue an enchanting feel. At just 1000 square-feet, it’s simple to ensure the magical spirit of your wedding reaches every guest in every corner.
Immerse yourself in the contemporary Spanish architecture of Bennie’s Courtyard. Twinkly lights will drape above you and the grand stone fireplace will warm up evening receptions—or create a charming backdrop for your bridal party table. Host up to 100 guests here.
Take your intimate affair inside at our Pueblo, Papago, or Apache event spaces. These indoor venues can transform to your taste, while still creating an intimate experience for up to 30 guests. Host your ceremony at one of our outdoor venues, then move into one of these special venues for your reception.
