Phoenix's amazing Japanese Friendship Garden (or RoHoEn) has graced the city with its beauty for the last 25 years. The garden was designed and built as a gift from the city of Himeji Japan, which is Phoenix's sister city. It is completely unique from every other Japanese garden in the world, and features flowing streams, a 12-foot waterfall, and a large Koi Pond. If you're looking for a beautiful and serene outdoor wedding venue, RoHoEn should definitely be on your list of spots to check out!

The reception area can comfortably hold around 100 people, but more can squeeze in if needed. The Garden offers the option to hold your elopement, wedding ceremony, reception or whatever combination works for you. They hold a liquor license and can provide bar services if you wish, though no outside alcohol is permitted on the premises.

The Wright House blends classic beauty with European charm, making it one of the most memorable spots in Phoenix to exchange those special vows with the one you love the most. Since their focus is entirely on weddings and receptions, you can rest assured that their professional, helpful staff will take care of every detail. With over twenty years of experience under their belts, they are truly a class act.

Guests can choose from two different venues within the Wright House: the Garden Ballroom and the Provencal. The Ballroom features a beautiful indoor area where guests can dine, dance, and your ceremony can take place if you wish. You can also spill over into the beautiful outdoor garden area, which features a romantic gazebo (also an option for where to hold the ceremony itself). The Provencal also features stunning indoor and outdoor areas where guests can mingle, dine, and dance, as well as a beautiful garden that features a romantic gazebo. Its décor is inspired by the charm and splendor of the French countryside, and is as cozy as it is romantic.

With several different wedding packages to choose from and experienced planners to help you every step of the way, the Wright House is truly one of the most elegant and unique wedding venues in Phoenix, Arizona!
