I was a +1 of a wedding held here so I have no bias about the selection of venue. This place basically has a rustic southwest decor throughout which isnt really my thing, but Im sure makes for some nice photos. 80% of the venue is outdoors. Only indoor part was the dinner seating which we only spent an hour inside of a "green house" like structure (corrugated domed roof). The place was decorated with ribbon lights and other soft lighting which was festive and fun. It became cold at night which they had propane heat stand lamps (does nothing for keeping your feet warm). The food was mediocre, I had the filet mignon which was a tad overcooked (would have like more pink or red in middle). Now for the things that stood out as bad. One bartender, one bar, outside only; not a big deal for the small party we had. Wood parts of the flooring sometimes had gaps which women wearing high heels had to be careful not to get caught in a gap. Dance floor outside. Ceremony outside. Bathrooms where all the way on the other side of the grounds from the dining area, it is also only covered in the bathroom but mostly exposed to the outside temps and insects if they were present. If the weather was worse Im not sure what the contingencies were with regard to the mostly exposed outdoor areas (path to bathroom, dance area, ceremony area). There was a cat there which I guess was around for rodent control, but I dont think they have a problem with that since I didnt see any food left out for more than a minute. The service people were very kind and attentive, they were professional and non-intrusive, they get 5 stars for service. Im not sure if I liked the format of the wedding events, but that could be more about decisions of the couple and/or wedding coordinator.
My husband Zach and I just had our wedding at the Boojum Tree April 16th, and could not have been happier with our choice of venue!! It’s tucked away in north Phoenix just off the AZ-51, in an area you’d never suspect. Once inside you are greeted by sparkling fountains, lush greenery, and interested decorations from one end to the other. Our guests had so much to do in the space, which includes many seating areas, a large courtyard where the ceremony is held, a bar cantina, and indoor greenhouse. It was so cute seeing all the photos people posted online afterward from all over the venue! Our ceremony was stunning under their romantic stucco archway, backlit by dozens of candles. Drinks and hors d’ oeuvres were enjoyed followed by an amazing dinner in the greenhouse. You don’t need much in the way of decorations when the whole space is just stunning! We rounded out the evening dancing under the stars on their large gazebo dance floor surrounded by palm trees. Truly unforgettable. Jennifer Brooks was our wedding coordinator and was incredible through the entire process. She is supportive, offers helpful suggestions, and is truly invaluable for the day-of. We will be recommending Boojum Tree Hidden Gardens to all of our family and friends for all of their future events. Not that we needed to say much- they all said it was the best wedding they’ve ever been to!!
My husband I got married at the Boojum Tree 5/7/16. While I looked up many venues online, this was the only one I saw in person. As soon as I saw it, I knew it was the one! I just had to get married here. It is unlike any other place that I have ever seen. From the beautiful waterfalls, to the fun décor, to the lush greenhouse this is a venue like no other. It is a hidden paradise and you will get lost in the beauty. Just go look at it, you’ll see what I mean. While they are gorgeous, the pictures don’t do it justice. Taylor was our day of wedding coordinator. She is very professional and a master at her craft. She is super organized down to the last detail. While we didn’t need to bring much as far as décor goes (Boojum supplies almost everything), we had several things that we wanted placed around the venue. She ensured that she knew my wedding vision and exactly where I wanted everything. She was super accommodating the day of the wedding. She worked very hard to make sure things ran smoothly and that there was enough time to do everything on our timeline. Everything turned out perfect! I had so many of my guests tell me that it was one of the most beautiful weddings that they had ever been to. It was everything I ever wanted and more. I can’t thank Taylor and the Boojum Tree enough! I HIGHLY recommend them!!!!
From the first visit at the open house, we knew we wanted to get married in this beautiful place. The greenhouse is magical, I felt like I was on a Journey to the Center of the Earth. The price is reasonable as our package included a plated dinner, open bar and DJ. You also will save money on décor because this place is so spectacular, you don’t need to add to it. Jennifer, our coordinator, was very helpful in the planning process and answered all of my emails quickly and had great advice. She made sure that all of our decorations and centerpieces were laid out perfectly the day of and she took them all down and packed them up (apparently, this is not the norm for venues). Everything went along according to plan. On a day that so much can go wrong, nothing went wrong and I contribute that to the hard work our coordinator put in to make our wedding perfect. Our guests continue to talk about how remarkable our venue was. It truly was the most perfect day, in the most perfect place and I could get married here a thousand more times.

My wife enquired about having her daughters’ wedding here: my wifes jaw almost dropped when they quoted 7000-8000 just to rent this place: so we still have to pay for catering, tables, chairs, linens, cake on top of the rental fee. We instead contracted with the Sheraton Crescent Hotel and we are paying roughly 4500-5000 and this is covering rental of the facility, and the price also includes catering, tables, chairs, linens and the cake. The Boojum Tree is a nice facility (except for the port-a-potties) but we felt it was very overpriced. We estimate we saved on the order of $8000.00 by scheduling with the Sheraton Crescent and they have real, indoor bathrooms! The Sheraton Crescent also gave us a 10% discount because we are Starwood Gold members and we get double starwood points for the fee (A starwood point is worth about 2.5 cents, so that is an economic value of 250.00)

I got married here in March and could not have been happier. Tasha was extremely helpful throughout the entire process and communicated very effectively. On the day of the wedding everything went so smooth. Our guests all commented on how unique and comfortable the venue was. Our photos turned out absolutely amazing because of the unique vintage backgrounds everywhere. We had 170 guests at our wedding and were a little worried about the dancing area but it worked out very well. All of our guests were able to make it up on the dance floor with us (this is where we spent the majority of the night). Initially I felt that the venue was expensive, but looking back it was worth every penny! Definitely worth driving out to see in person!

We were looking for a wedding venue for our daughter that would be fun, reflect value (economic and otherwise), demonstrate efficiency and be a wonderful experience for our families and guests. We found this and more at the Boojum Tree in Phoenix. I could not have asked for a more pleasant experience in the planning and execution of what can be a rather daunting task. The staff at the BT was excellent and their coordination and suggestions went a long way to make that special day special. Taylor was our planner and she was extraordinary throughout the process and a delight to work with. It may not be the perfect wedding place for everyone, but it was for us!
