When the temperatures rise in southern Arizona, we pack our bags and hit the road up north. With so many diverse climates, Arizona is one of the few places in the United States where you can have outdoor weddings all year round. With the breathtaking red rocks of Sedona, the forests of fresh pine trees in Flagstaff, and the snow dusted mountains in Pinetop, theses Northern Arizona Wedding Venues provide a stunning backdrop for any style of wedding.
The Best Northern Arizona Wedding Venues:
Sedona: Red Rocks, Luxury and Breathtaking Views.
Sedona is another northern Arizona favorite known around the world. Often called “red rock country,” Sedona and its surrounding area provides exciting activities and stunning views. For some pre-wedding relaxation and excursions, we recommend booking a room at Amara Resort and Spa or Red Agave Resort for pristine views of the world famous Bell Rock and Courthouse Buttes.
Prescott: Fine Dining, Shopping and Culture.
From fine dining to boutique shopping, hiking trails to history, Prescott has something for every one of your wedding guests to enjoy. If you want your guests to feel right at home, book reservations at the historic Hassayampa Inn. Built in 1927 and owned by Arizona resident, Michael V. Kouvelas, the property is one of Arizona’s oldest hotels, offering modern amenities combined with a long tradition of exemplary service. With its open-air gazebo, rooftop reception area and elegant ballrooms, it’s the perfect venue for your Prescott wedding.
Flagstaff: Cool Climate, Hiking and San Francisco Peaks.
For a cooler climate, we suggest taking the canyon drive up to Flagstaff. Watch the red rocks fade into a forest of pine trees as you climb up 7,000 feet to the charming college town. Flagstaff is located in the largest ponderosa pine forest in the world, which means one simple thing for Arizona couples: picture perfect backdrop for their wedding portraits.
White Mountains: Snowy Mountain Tops, Lakes and Fresh Air.
Lastly, but surely not any less beautiful, are the snow-dusted White Mountains. This area includes: Show Low, Pinetop-Lakeside, Greer, Springerville, Snowflake-Taylor and Payson. From tree-lined lakesides to intimate private retreats, the White Mountains are a place where you can take a mini hiatus from the city. With hiking, fishing, skiing and plenty of fresh air, it can make for the perfect wedding weekend for you and your guests.
