Gorgeous Sonoran Desert Venue

The Paseo's mix of desert landscape and rustic chic architecture is an idyllic bridal setting. Will you opt for a first look before the main event? We'll plan the perfect moment, framed against the dramatic Sonoran desert views or the Pavilion's barn doors.
The Paseo has three event spaces that provide plenty of flexibility for your big day. Each site takes full advantage of the gorgeous locale and offers plenty of terrific photo ops: an outdoor ceremony area; an outdoor reception area, and the indoor-outdoor wooden Pavilion. Whatever your preference, the Paseo can comfortably accommodate up to 200 guests.

A Dramatic First Look

You will want to make the most of The Paseo's impressive scenery for your photos by arranging a lovely outdoor ceremony. Plan to say your "I Do's" on the raised stage of The Paseo's lush green ceremony area. You'll have the picturesque Superstition Mountains as the striking backdrop to your wedding vows. Amazing photographs are guaranteed! If you prefer to hold an indoor ceremony, the Paseo's rustic wooden Pavilion is a great choice. It's also a nice backup plan in case Mother Nature doesn't cooperate!
After the ceremony, your guests will enjoy an outdoor cocktail hour, and will likely be treated to a spectacular desert sunset. A nice touch: The Paseo's outdoor fireplace ensures comfort in those chilly desert evenings. This is an opportunity for some stunning couple and group portraits in this incredible, unique setting.

Outdoor Vows and Sunset Cocktails

You can choose to dine and dance under the starry desert skies in the romantic ambience of The Paseo's outdoor reception area. The festivities can extend into the spacious (4000 square feet) wooden Pavilion. This versatile indoor-outdoor space can seat up to 200 guests for couples who prefer an indoor celebration. The Pavilion's barn-like high ceilings and charming market lighting lend a rustic ambience that makes for some wonderful reception photos.

Romantic Reception Spaces

The Paseo offers three wedding packages. Whatever your plan, The Paseo provides two suites for the bridal couple and their attendants. You are assured that only one event is held at a time, so you will enjoy privacy and exclusive use of all The Paseo's facilities.
• Let the Paseo handle the details with the inclusive Saguaro Package. This choice covers your catering (passed or buffet appetizers, entrée and beverages); bridal party and reception flowers from J. Barry Designs; bar service(bartender, mixers and basic bar supplies), entertainment by DTB Productions and a custom wedding cake from Piece of Cake Desserts.
• If you prefer to select your own vendors, the Paseo offers two customizable packages, either for the ceremony and reception, or the reception only. Both give you exclusive use of the entire venue and include a site coordinator, tables and chairs, shade umbrellas and heaters. The Paseo does require use of one of their preferred caterers, DJs and their bartending service. You may bring in your own alcohol. All other vendors must be licensed and insured.
