Saguaro Buttes is Great!

Reviewed on 5/10/2014 Jamie W

From the initial tour of the facility to our actual wedding date, the staff at Saguaro Buttes was warm and friendly. They worked hard to meet our needs and walked us through the entire wedding process. We loved their DJ, Rashid. He was funny, quick on his feet and excellent...

A Night the Salgado Couple Will Never Forget!

My wedding day, night is a moment I will never forget. Paster Dave made my service beautiful, funny, and memorable with every detail from the moment I caught eye of my husband, to when he proposed, to setting the scene of our first tour at the Buttes to all the bible passages to... Read More just a beautiful service. Saguaro Buttes is beautiful and romantic. The true beauty of the desert during the day and the lights at night and sounds the place to the amazing monsoon sunset that evening it was just breath taking and not to forget a never invited guest a rattle snake. D.J Rashid set the theme of the whole evening. he is amazing and we loved his energy and enthusiasm. We had the fajita mexican buffet it was delicious. The whole room set up for the bride to get ready and groom was perfect. Natalie, Cindy were very understanding and patient, everyone else who helped made my wedding night the most amazing day of my life. If I had to say one thing they need to work on in the future would be during the heat or monsoon season and the bridal party wanted butter cream cake and 100 cupcakes that the venue temperature be set to the appropriate settings and not placed in front of the sun and the window opened near it! I have to say this is the place to marry or just throw a fun party check them out you will be happy you did.

This venue is beatiful and everyone there is very friendly and helpful. I went with the conscierge package (included my flowers, cake, and photographer). I wouldn't recommend this only because of the service I got from the flower and cake. The flower person forgot what I...

Saguaro Buttes Review

Reviewed on 4/21/2015 Megan F

I got married at Saguaro buttes in April 2015. I was on my own as far as planning went, without the help of any family or friends so I felt the pressure! I really relied on Cindy to help, and she was very nice. However she seemed to be very unorganized. She over-charge me twice,... Read More and it was hard to get a meeting with her. I think she needs to hire an assistant for the office part of it because her and her husband take it all on themselves. I'm very organized so this part drove me crazy... Other than that the venue was absolutely beautiful! On the day of the wedding, all of the workers were super helpful and organized and made me feel at ease the day of the wedding and everything went smoothly! The DJ was so fun and made it fun for all the guests. I received so many compliments on everything I was very pleased! I am happy I chose saguaro buttes to get married. It was just the beginning chaos that I dealt with that made it more stressful than it should have been, but overall a great experience and I highly recommend this venue. One more thing that did put a damper on things is the food tasting for their catering company was not as I expected. We wanted to do an Italian menu and they only had lasagna to try and not any of the pastas or other Italian options so in the end we just chose chicken since we were unable to try the other food.. Just a heads up! Also, many of my guests at least half of them got very sick the weekend after my wedding and we believe it was food positioning.. Nothing anyone can fully control but it was horrible hearing how many people got sick! The food was however very tasty it was just an unfortunate thing that happened! Otherwise great experience. Dave the officiant did an amazing job of making the ceremony very personable and special I received many compliments about that as well!

Amazing but avoid the 2k concierge package!!

Reviewed on 3/04/2015 Kirstin S

The couple who runs this place was fantastic and you could tell that they really love what they do. Pastor Dave is the one who did our ceremony and he was light hearted, and customized the ceremony to be completely "us." We got SO many compliments on it! The natural beauty of... Read More the area was a great backdrop and being in the middle of nowhere ensured privacy! It is very pricey but the food was amazing (we had the italian menu with lasagna and chicken fettucini.) They will offer you a $2000 "concierge" package which will include flowers, cake, and photographer. This is the only thing I could really downgrade them on and is why I can't give 5/5. I would suggest NOT purchasing this package because the florist and cake company they use are a pair of sisters who are complete idiots who messed up my flowers AND my cake and left us scrambling last minute to make fixes. The DJ who is included with this venue (Rashid) is AMAZING at keeping the reception rolling after the manager Cindy has left for the evening. The night manager also was helpful but Rashid really took over and wrangled everyone to the dance floor when they were congregating outside, and he kept things moving. He played amazing music and was very intuitive based on what we told him we liked. Overall this venue is amazing. Any bride who gets married here is guaranteed to feel like a queen. They will treat you well, cater to your needs, and do everything in their power to make your day special!

We got married at Saguaro Buttes in May 2014. Our out of state guests enjoyed the beautiful desert backdrop, and the ability to move around the property throughout the evening. From a wedding planning perspective, Cindy and Dave are awesome. They have taken the guess work out of... Read More planning weddings for their couples. They were respectful of our wishes (sometimes parents chime in a bit with conflicting thoughts!), always professional and prompt with communication and information requests. If we had to do it all over again, we would absolutely get married here again...hands down. Some out of state family members indicated concern when they saw the map, saying "it's so far out". Due to the large amount of out of state guests we arranged for coach transportation to and from the hotels with no issues or concerns. Overall, can't say enough about Cindy, Dave and their awesome team.

My husband and I had a long engagement – about 2 years and we started searching for a venue over 18 months out. His parents live in the Phoenix area and wanted to be a part of searching for venues so I arranged about 5 appointments with various wedding venues around Tucson.... Read More Saguaro Buttes was the first we visited and it left a lasting impression with us – there was no doubt in my mind, my husband’s, my parents’, his parents’, etc. where we would get married. Since we knew we’d be moving out of Arizona after we were both done with grad school we wanted a venue that held all the beauty of the desert that we would miss --- Saguaro Buttes backs up to Saguaro National Monument East and you cannot ask for greater views of the southwest landscape! The staff at Saguaro Buttes was easy to communicate with and a pleasure to work with. Their caterer was AMAZING and our guests thoroughly enjoyed all the appetizers during cocktail hour and the entrées. They allowed us to bring in our own desserts and pre-ceremony treats (Eegees!). With them you can completely customize your dream wedding! On the day off, the ceremony went off without a hitch. The staff was extremely professional and we never had to worry about a thing. DJ Rashid was energetic, fun and tailored our reception to what we wanted. We couldn’t have asked for a better, more perfect wedding day!

After talking with Cindy, we knew we want to get married here and decided to book our date. Cindy was really sweet, helpful when we got stuck on decision, patient even we changed the plan couple of times, care and very professional. You will get your email replied back on the same day you sent it out, that's how responsive they are. It was raining on the day but Cindy and the crew could handle everything. They had second or even third plan on every situation occurred. We also got Pastor Dave as our Officiant and no regret He is the best. From the counseling session to the day, He always could get the fun and happy moment around but maintain the sacred moment of the Ceremony itself. The value we paid is beyond on what we got. If I have a chance to celebrate anything again, I'd love to find a reason to celebrate it at Saguaro Buttes.

We couldn't have asked for a better setting for our desert-themed wedding! Our outdoor ceremony overlooked Saguaro National Park, complete with towering saguaro cactuses and the beautiful desert landscape! The staff was more than helpful, very knowledgeable, and genuinely wanted... Read More to make sure that our special day was just that - special! I especially liked that we had a staff member specifically assigned to us during the entire event. It took a lot of the stress off. They made sure I always had a drink in my hand, brought us food from the buffet so we didn't have to get it ourselves, and made sure that we got to eat a piece of our own wedding cake (which I'm told a lot of couples are too busy on their wedding day to enjoy). Saguaro Buttes had reasonable price options and worked with us until all our questions were answered. I was not stressed out in the least on my wedding day because I was confident that SB took care of everything. They even allowed us to bring in Eegee's - if you're a Tucson local like me, Eegee's is near and dear to your heart. And it was a delightful addition to our hot, hot, hot summer wedding!
