With endless sunshine, gorgeous scenery, and a never-ending list of beautiful venues, Phoenix, Arizona is the perfect wedding destination. There are so many wedding venues in Phoenix, Arizona, and as a Phoenix Wedding DJ & MC, I’ve seen them all!
It’s simply amazing to see these places in all their glory the day of the wedding. Sometimes the couple has opted for high-end elegance, sometimes for an inviting rustic atmosphere. No matter the theme, the end results are always picturesque and memorable.
While no wedding venue in Phoenix is necessarily better than another, I definitely have my favorites.
Villa Sienna is an amazing wedding and wedding reception location. This lovely Tuscan Villa boasts a large courtyard, a gallery colonnade, and beautiful banquet halls—all inspired by traditional Italian design.
The architectural and landscaping design are what make Villa Sienna unique, and one of my favorite wedding venues in Phoenix. These Tuscan design elements “are inspired by the Gothic and Renaissance time periods… You will see classical elements such as rounded arches, classical columns, acanthus leaves, colonnades and symmetrical composition throughout the spaces.”
The Villa will only book one event at a time, making your experience both exclusive and private.
