Nestled at the base of Camelback Mountain in Arizona is the modern and eclectic boutique resort, Mountain Shadows Resort Scottsdale. It was initially built in 1959, but was recently reimagined from the ground up. With stunning views of this iconic valley landmark, Mountain Shadows is a perfect host for a wedding away in the valley of the sun.

One need many destination wedding couples have is the ability to host a large group of guests in one place. There are several ways of doing this. First, the resort has several types of guest rooms, but they offer residences as well. Everything from a king suite to a 3,400+ square foot penthouse with three bedrooms and three and a half bathrooms, allows groups to spread out while on property. There are also countless nearby resorts of varying price points to accommodate guests on smaller budgets. 

If you’re looking to take advantage of the over 300 days of sunshine in Arizona, the number of outdoor spaces Mountain Shadows Resort offers is abundant. Choose from Camelback Overlook - a rooftop terrace overlooking the Short Course (a par-3, 18 hole golf course that the resort is centered around) with panoramic views of Camelback Mountain or Paradise Terrace - an outdoor patio accommodating up to 300 guests. In total the resort offers six outdoor venue spaces ranging in capacity from 50 to 400. 

Your entire wedding weekend can be held here without ever leaving the premises. With two adjoining pools, on-site golf and two mouthwatering restaurants (Hearth 61’ and Rusty’s) to choose from, delectable room and pool food service, world-renowned hiking just steps from the resort and cotton candy sunsets, your guests will find reason to extend their stay. 

Weddings here come as natural as the setting they're in. The area is known for talented wedding vendors who can accommodate the most discerning of couples. And if you’re thinking of hosting your entire wedding weekend here - everything from the bachelor/bachelorette party to the farewell brunch will not only be easy to pull off, it will be loaded with fun in the sun.
