The First Look
Venue at the Grove in Phoenix, Arizona is the ideal place for an outdoor Arizona wedding without the country feel. The amazing pecan grove makes for a beautiful backdrop for your wedding ceremony and your reception can take place either indoors or outside. The Venue at the Grove has an amazingly secluded feeling even though you are just minutes outside of downtown Phoenix. Staff at the venue cover every detail including flipping the switch as you arrive at the reception area and lighting up the pecan grove with thousands of twinkling lights that are sure to wow your guests.
Outdoor Ceremony. The outdoor ceremony is back-dropped by the amazing pecan trees that are central to the Venue at the Grove. Your guests face the grove and every ceremony picture will be absolutely stunning with the vibrant green of the trees in the background. Whether you choose the traditional arch or a stunning trellis the ceremony stage is decorated in beautiful fabrics to coordinate with the colors you have chosen for your wedding.
Outdoor Reception. The outdoor reception area has a large brick patio that is ideal for dancing. The outdoor space can host up to 200 guests. The highlight of the outdoor reception is the thousands of white lights adorning the pecan grove that serves as the backdrop to the evening.
The Barn. The barn is the ideal place for cocktail hour. The quaint space is set up with a bar and Venue at the Grove supplies bartenders. Using the barn for cocktail hour allows the staff at Venue at the Grove time to take down the ceremony supplies and set up for your reception since both your ceremony and reception utilize the same space.
Indoor Reception. The indoor reception space can host up to 140 guests. The large french doors open up to allow a beautiful view of the pecan groves. Many couples choose the indoor space as a back up due to in-climate weather as the bread and butter of the Venue at the Grove is the great outdoors. Thankfully, even with bad weather staff at the venue will light up the pecan trees to help incorporate them into your reception.
