The Cottage Wedding Venue

In the heart of historic downtown, The Cottage wedding venue takes backyard glam to new heights and may just be the perfect wedding venue for you and your soon to be spouse.


We are going to breakdown their package options and give you a little more info on why this venue is perfect for both small, intimate weddings and larger than life weddings!

When you arrive at The Cottage, you are welcomed into a cozy farmhouse style venue that feels like you could simply be walking into a family or friends home. The backyard features a misted patio, an exquisite gazebo where you can say your "I do's", an elegant fountain, and floral arches, all creating the perfect backdrop for amazing pictures during your wedding.


If you are looking for a place with indoor, outdoor options, their indoor ballroom is full of elegance & charm and could easily be made up for a cozy reception during the "winter" months here in Arizona.


When it comes to pricing, The Cottage has a lot of package options to suit every couple uniquely. In a nut shell, their 2020 rental package breakdown is,

  • A la Carte Package (use your own vendors or pick from their list) - between $3,000 to $4,800 for 5-8 hours of use depending on the day of the week or weekend. Something super cool about their a la carte option is that you get the option to use your own vendors or theirs. They provide a catering kitchen (use a caterer, make your own, or purchase from a local restaurant, & add their service package) which I think is a huge plus!

  • Basic Weekday Wedding & Reception Package - between $5,900 for 50 people all the way up to $8,700 for 150 guests for 5 hours of use Monday thru Thursday. This is an all inclusive package which is seriously awesome! They include a DJ for 4 hours, a dinner buffet, DJ, Minister, 2 tier wedding cake, tables with linens, bar service and bridal suites. The coolest aspect of their all inclusive options is that they come with a coordinator. 👈🏼Major bonus that one!

  • The Gather Package - between $8,600 for 50 people all the way up to $11,500 for 150 guests for 8 hours of use Friday thru Sunday. There are also weekday options between $7,200 & $10,200. This is another all inclusive package with some added bonuses like, more time in the bridal suites for getting ready, 2 added appetizers for cocktail hour, a photographer, DJ for 5 hours, lawn games.

  • The Destino Package - between $9,100 for 50 people all the way up to $13,100 for 150 guests for 8 hours of use Friday thru Sunday. There are also weekday options between $7,800 & $11,800. Like the basic weekday and gather package, this is an all inclusive package with everything from the previous two but with 3 added appetizers, upgraded disposables, and a custom menu.

  • The Romanza Package - between $10,900 for 50 people all the way up to $15,800 for 150 guests for 10 hours of use Friday thru Sunday. There are also weekday options between $9,800 & $14,500. This is an all inclusive package with everything from the previous three but with an option to do a plated dinner instead of buffet style, chinaware instead of disposables, 6 hours of DJ entertainment, and a floral Package based on guest count and choices.

  • Rise & Shine Package - If you are feeling like having a morning wedding instead, this package could be right up your ally. Running between $5,000 for 50 people all the way up to $8,000 for 150 guests for 5 hours of use Friday thru Sunday between 9am & 2pm. Or there are also weekday options between $4,000 & $7,000. With this option you get a Lunch/Brunch Buffet, a 2 tier cake, tables with linens and chairs, access to the bridal suite, bar service, a minister and coordinator.

  • Ceremony Only Package - Only offered during Monday thru Thursday for $1000 up to 40 guests; each additional guest $10. You get to use the entire Cottage area for up to two hours and you get a minister, chairs for the ceremony, a 1 tier cutting cake & sparkling cider for toasts. 😍This is a wonderful option for couples who are looking for an elopement style wedding event.

  • Petite Wedding Package - Offered Sunday thru Thursday with a minimum of 30 guests for $2750 for 4 hours of use. Another small option for those couples who are looking for a more intimate wedding day or if you are on a budget. This package comes with the use of the entire cottage, a minister, ceremony chairs, a dinner buffet, bar service and a 2 tier wedding cake. It's got the whole package if you are a no fuss no muss type of couple!

With so many different package options and some of the best all inclusive options I've seen, The Cottage has something for every couple which is why it makes my list of best local wedding venues here in Arizona.


It is super cute and quaint with a backyard feel and some of the nicest staff around. You really can't go wrong with The Cottage for your wedding venue!
