Desert Garden Wedding
Desert Garden
Fall 2021

The beauty of the Arizona landscape is the inspiration for the newest outdoor venue at Hyatt Regency Scottsdale Resort and Spa—The Desert Garden. This inspiring space, located in a serene courtyard and surrounded by a grove of mesquite trees, weaves together natural textures, materials, landscape and design to create an oasis in the desert.

The entrance to the garden is over a bridge of planked concrete pavers, traversing above a shallow reflecting pool, providing a stunning entrance for a wedding party procession or banquet guests. A spectacular blue palo verde tree anchors the space at the center, separating a 1,600 sq. ft. lawn from the 3,700 sq. ft. patio area.  The backdrop of the lawn features a cascading waterfall wall, creating a tranquil focal point for a ceremony, dinner event or social function. The unique landscaping surrounding the Desert Garden speaks to the destination and includes mesquite and ironwood trees for shade in addition to shrubs, cactus and succulents such as aloe, agave, saguaro, ocotillo and organ pipe cactus. Grasses and seasonal flowers will create a beautiful and colorful backdrop for visual effect and photos. 

The space is further designed to allow for casual gatherings, with sculptural garden benches, transition sitting steps, a contemplation garden with commissioned art pieces, and a small stage for entertainment. This beautiful new venue is a complement to the many other spectacular outdoor settings at Hyatt Regency Scottsdale Resort and Spa, renowned for its lush Sonoran Desert landscape and design.
