The scenery is a really what sets these spaces apart as you celebrate your wedding day high above the desert below. As the sun goes over the horizon, everything begins to glow as light bounces off the mountains and everything begins to have a more intimate and romantic feel.
Just off of the lawn is the Sonoran Room. This intimate space is has a very open feel with one wall featuring floor to ceiling walls opening up to a lawn with olive trees for some added shade.
