Today on Facebook one of our Tucson Wedding Network members posed the question… “What is your favorite wedding venue… And why?” I felt that it was such a good and relevant question for Tucson brides and grooms that I would dedicate a blog post to the topic while introducing a new section on my blog where I review my favorite venues.
The truth is, without a good event manager/director a venue is nothing more than a big empty space with eager potential. There are quite literally hundreds of venues in the Tucson area that cater to brides and grooms, and as a wedding DJ in Tucson for more than 25 years I still have not had the opportunity to perform weddings at all of them, however, the aesthetics and visual aspects of any venue is really a matter of personal taste and logistical needs so I would be hard-pressed to choose a favorite wedding venue based upon its visual appeal alone.
Beautiful wedding on Saturday Night at the Tucson Botanical Gardens. I had the pleasure of working with Cassandra Zurawski who did an exceptional job of setting up the event.
Dancing in the garden under a full moon was pure magic and I highly recommend contacting Cassandra Zurawski to setup a visit/tour if you have not already been there as this venue offers some unique wedding opportunities not found anywhere else in Tucson.
I had the pleasure of working with Alyssa Sheppard at the Westward Look Resort on Friday evening. She is awesome!! This particular wedding was one of the fastest paced events I have ever done, and Alyssa maintained her composure while calmly keeping everything under control. In fact I never saw her without a smile on her face. If you have not had an opportunity to work with her you’re missing out.
The Westward Look Resort is one of Tucson’s oldest and most beautifully elegant places to have a wedding. It has breathtaking views and several ballrooms with a variety of options. The food is excellent and their staff is phenomenal.
If you are planning a wedding in the Tucson area and are in need of an exquisite venue, I highly recommend contacting Alyssa as she is absolutely awesome to work with, and if you give her a call I am sure she will gladly give you a tour of their beautiful facility.
