This venue is surreal! The views of the red rocks are spectacular from any of the terraces as well as the ballroom. This place provided us with EVERYTHING we needed. It was neat to have this private venue to ourselves for the entire evening. Agave of Sedona provides a level of convenience and elegance that is unparalleled. We were able to smoothly transition from the wedding ceremony to the cocktail hour and reception, maximizing our time with our beloved guests. Each segment of the evening had its unique space and they seamlessly flowed together. The attention to detail is stunning. The staff is very helpful! Despite the inclement weather we faced, our wedding went on without a hitch!
We got married at Agave on 10/1/16 and it was amazing. The venue is absolutely gorgeous and is very tastefully decorated with vases, candles and lanterns. There's also multiple places for small groups to break away for more intimate conversation (bistro tables, the man cave, a front sitting lounge). Wendy is amazingly easy to work with and reached out multiple times to confirm small details were correct. Her and her assistant Terri really ensured our rehearsal and wedding went smoothly. She even floofed my dress right before I walked down the aisle. My husband and I toured four other venues in Sedona and Oak Creek back in 2015, picking Agave of Sedona was absolutely the right choice. I can't imagine our wedding being this perfect anywhere else. In response to the 8/2015 review, I want to add that the ceremony chair rental cost ($3/chair) was made clear to us as soon as we started discussing packages with Wendy back in October 2015. Maybe it wasn't made clear in the past, but the packaging tiers that we were shown were straight forward about what was and wasn't included. They also upgraded their reception chairs to Chiavari chairs about three months before our wedding, so gaudy conference room chairs didn't blemish our photos. I did see that review before booking at Agave and was a little nervous about Wendy not being "warm and kind", but she really did go out of her way to make sure our wedding was flawless. She was never anything other than kind and professional over the year we worked with her.
Agave of Sedona - Ceremony and ReceptionReviewed on 8/23/2015 Sarah P
The Agave of Sedona was the location we choose for both our ceremony and our reception. It was an absolutely beautiful venue. The ceremony was outside on their terrace and the reception was inside with the big glass windows over looking the red rocks. The venue itself was nicely located for the guests to stay at the Best Western Plus Inne of Sedona. The ability to self provide alcohol was a big bonus since we wanted specific wine that is not readily available at most venues. As our wedding started to get closer there were number of issues that arose, as is typical with most weddings. Unfortunately the Agave manager Wendy was not warm and helpful in dealing with those issues. For example once issue that arose was the venue requires you to use their plate and glassware, however they neglected to inform us that they don't have drink glasses, they only had wine and water glasses. I think Wendy had purchased the ugliest chairs possible to require us to rent chair covers through her. Another item that wasn't a big deal but was aggravating was that the wedding package we purchased included a tea party (which I was very excited about and was wonderful). Wendy charged us tax and gratuity on the entire wedding package (which included the cost of the tea party), however she then expected us to pay tax and gratuity to the team hosting the tea party. After a bit of back and forth she agreed to pay the tax for the tea party and we still had to pay gratuity to the tea party team. It wasn't a big deal, but we were still being double charged. As the wedding planning continued there were a number of charges typically in $300 increments that had to be made as more and more items that were required (such as ceremony chairs) were brought to light as not being included in the 'all inclusive' package. We could have done a better job double checking up front, but you expect chairs to be included in an 'all inclusive' package. There were a consistent stream of minor issues as the wedding got closer that made it more and more challenging to work with Wendy. I was very thankful that I had help and they were willing to work with Wendy to make the wedding day run smoothly. In conclusion this venue was great for both the ceremony and reception, but the service could be improved upon.

Beautiful viewReviewed on 9/28/2010 lauren h
The venue has the most gorgeous view and the service was great on the wedding day. However, the manager was not pleasant and did not give us the attention she promised.
