Now for our final Venue Vibes post, its all about Globally Inspired Venues.
If the charm of an old world village is what you’re after, then you’ll love the graceful arches, vine-covered stucco walls and captivating courtyards at Aldea at Tlaquepaque. (In case you’re wondering, it’s pronounced Tla-keh-pah-keh.) In the ancient Aztec language, Aldea means “village” and Tlaquepaque means “the best of everything,” just what you would want in a wedding venue. Once you step onto Tlaquepaque’s brick walkways, you’ll get the feeling that this venue has been here for centuries, a pretty impressive feat to pull off here in the modern city ofPhoenix.

And if you’ve ever imagined how dreamy it would be to celebrate your wedding in a Tuscan villa, your dreams can come true right here in Arizona. At Villa Siena in Gilbert, the gorgeous architecture and romantic indoor and outdoor event spaces will “transport” you and your guests right to Italy.
In North Scottsdale, Sassi provides all the ambiance of an Italian villa with its massive hand carved doors, beamed ceilings, wrought iron chandeliers, cobblestone courtyard and sparkling fountain. The beauty of this venue is enhanced by sunset views of Pinnacle Peak.

And for a double dose of historic charm, check out The Wright House in Mesa that dates back to the 1930s. You’ll have a choice of two settings. One is the Garden Ballroom that includes picturesque gardens and a gazebo. The other, Provencal, is inspired by the Provence region in the south of France and features romantic gardens, fountains, terraces and a gazebo where you’ll be happy to say “I do.”
