Luxe Wedding Venue: Mountain Shadows | Arizona Weddings Magazine

Tucked away in Paradise Valley is an elite wedding venue that will put guests in awe. Having reopened this year after a 12 year and $100 million renovation, Mountain Shadows is a stunning venue that’s perfect for a couple wanting a balanced elixir of modern and heritage, desert and amenities. The luxurious updates saw fit to relive the modernist architecture from the late 50s, when the resort was originally opened. Now the resort combines the best of both worlds to present a unique and desirable wedding venue for discerning couples. Golfing is another major attraction for Mountain Shadows, and the course was recently named “Renovation of the Year” by Golf Inc. The venue also features an art gallery with new exhibitions every two months. Art opening receptions make for a unique experience for conversations with the artists, plus wine and hors d’oeuvre from Hearth ‘61. Mountain Shadows is also central to many popular and exciting attractions that are perfect for entertaining guests.

Living up to its name, the resort is nestled in shadows of Camelback and Mummy Mountains to create a sense of wild intimacy on your wedding day. A private, elegant lawn that backs up to the mountains provides a gorgeous ceremony location with a picturesque backdrop. Guests will love the serene atmosphere and desert scenery paired with a lush lawn. For your reception, the Paradise Ballroom breathes in the natural sunlight and desert scenery to create a gorgeous setting to celebrate your marriage. A retractable glass wall opens up to reveal an outdoor terrace for extra space. For couples wanting modern luxury with a hint of history on their wedding day, Mountain Shadows is a perfect venue choice.
