Something Blue Wedding Photography


by Georgina Anderson

Saguaro Buttes wedding venue  can be found on the East side of Tucson.  It sits atop a hill on 26 acres.  Butted up against the Rincon’s you can imagine that privacy is a premium here and yet you are still near town.  It has views like no other. This wedding venue overlooks the majestic Saguaro National Park East.  It has scenery and landscape of the desert that goes on as far as the eye can see.    If you love our Arizona desert then your heart will melt when you visit Saguaro Buttes.   The lush Sonoran desert back drop is defiantly the venues feature point, but it has much more depth.  There is a quaint pond, green grassy knoll, a sunset point and a couple different water fountain features.

The Ceremony Location

The ceremony location at Saguaro Buttes does rest among the desert cacti and the Rincon Mountains.  You will be blessed with blooming roses of all shades in the upper ceremony location during different parts of the year. They recently installed gorgeous grass to keep it green and fresh year round. Make sure your photographer heads up to the roof for an aerial shot of the ceremony. The owners are wonderful caring people that cater to each client.  Pastor Dave gets to know each couple and always delivers a loving heartfelt ceremony.

The Pond

Saguaro Buttes has a lovely pond and waterfall feature that is perfect for wedding photos.  The pond transforms into a twinkling wonderland of romance at night. Something Blue will take you and your wedding party to the pond during the day and then usher the couple down in the evening for spectacular photos.

Sunset Point

Hands down, Saguaro Buttes Wedding venue has the best sunset point in Tucson.  Something Blue has created some of the most spectacular images at sunset at this venue.  You can view some of these images on our Tucson Venue gallery here: SB  gallery and on the walls at the venue.  The venue is on a hill.  There are days that you can turn in a 360 degree turn and have color in the sky in every direction.

They have beautiful grassy knoll down near the pond that has been used for ceremonies, cocktail hour or receptions. Something Blue likes to take the wedding party to this location to give another layer of diverse photos.  As night falls the lights begin to glow and create a unique outdoor garden setting. 

Grass, pond, desert and sunsets: what else could you ask for in a venue?  They have it all.

The reception hall is lined with wall to wall windows.  Your guests will enjoy 360 degree views.  Once you decide on your colors or theme, the SB team will pull your vision together.  It is wonderful to have a wedding at a venue that takes care of so many details and allows you to relax and enjoy your day.  Saguaro Buttes has an in-house DJ. DJ Rashid also mc’s your reception and keeps the night flowing flawlessly.  We love when up lighting is added to the reception to add ambiance.  We have photographed both large and small weddings at this venue and they can handle up to 300 people with ease.
