CEREMONY & RECEPTION SITES
The Alegria Garden is a romantic, intimate ceremony venue surrounded by vibrant flowers and fragrant citrus trees. This ceremony venue is perfect for a small to medium-sized guest list, allowing for up to 120 seated guests for a ceremony. The garden is surrounded by stone walls with two gorgeous wooden doors for a special entrance. The space also features an elevated platform for the couple and bridal party.
VERNADERO LAWN CEREMONY
The Vernadero Lawn is at the heart of the resort, surrounded by bustling palm trees and an unmatched view of sunset on Camelback Mountain. This ceremony space offers room for up to 180 guests. The highlight of ceremonies on Vernadero Lawn is the altar-inspired staircase, offering every guest a view of the impending nuptials.
VERNADERO LAWN RECEPTION
For a reception under the desert starlight, the Vernadero Lawn is the perfect space. Ceremonies on the lawn can be transformed into an environment fit for dinner. As shown above, the same lawn was used for a ceremony, then became the dinner setting for the same group of guests.
Tucked on the north side of the property, Camelback Vista is already one of the most desired and intimate venues at the resort with features including a fireplace with a surrounding brick patio, a pristine lawn, lush landscaping and a gated entrance for enhanced privacy.
