Imagine saying your vows against the breathtaking backdrop of Paradise Valley’s iconic Camelback Mountain as one of Arizona’s legendary sunsets casts a pink glow over your special day. That’s just one of the many possibilities that await you when you plan your wedding at Mountain Shadows.
If you had to choose one word to describe the style of this elegant wedding venue, it would have to be “timeless.” The resort’s clean, Mid-Century Modern lines and soothing neutral color palette provide the ideal blank slate where you and your wedding planner can realize your vision for your wedding day. You’ll have your choice of settings, too, from the Mountain Shadows Lawn with its awe-inspiring views to the aptly named Paradise Ballroom that features a wall of retractable glass that opens to a terrace for indoor-outdoor dining and dancing. Or you may want to choose the Camelback Overlook rooftop deck with its stunning views and string lights.
Of course, another important aspect of your wedding will be the quality of the cuisine. You’ll be happy to know that Mountain Shadows’ expert culinary team is helmed by award-winning chef and Valley legend Charles Wiley. Whether you choose a plated dinner or a beautiful stations menu, you can be assured your high-quality fare will be beautifully presented and accompanied by outstanding service. Choosing your menu will be easy, thanks to the private tasting you’ll be able to enjoy. In fact, bridal couples frequently hear great feedback from their guests on the quality of the food at their reception. The resort’s onsite restaurant, Hearth ’61, specializes in modern American fare and can provide the perfect setting for your rehearsal dinner.
Your guests will have plenty of other opportunities to enjoy themselves during your wedding weekend. Kick off the weekend with a welcome reception in the unique Community Room. For the golfers in your group, there’s The Short Course, offering 18 holes that are ideal for beginners and pros alike. Your guests will also surely enjoy lounging in a private cabana at one of the resort’s 75-foot pools or relaxing on a comfy poolside daybed. End the weekend with a boozy brunch to send your guests off!
When you combine uninterrupted views of Camelback and Mummy Mountains, Arizona’s iconic desert landscape, elegant Mid-Century Modern style and outstanding cuisine and amenities, it’s easy to see why this resort, nestled in the heart of Paradise Valley, is a true desert gem.
