My husband and I were engaged for a year and a half before getting married. We looked at too many venues to count. After stumbling upon Portico we knew that was the venue for us. The owners, Kyle and Amy were in constant contact with us during the planning process to answer any questions and concerns. Besides the beautiful venue, and quick response time from the owners, I was most impressed with one thing that I feel made my day so much easier and stress free. At the rehearsal dinner I brought boxes of all my decorations for the wedding. When I showed up on my wedding day, almost all of the decorations were set up, and in the exact place I wanted them without even telling Amy or her assistant. After the ceremony, Kyle even took down the flowers I had decorated the altar with so I had more time to enjoy my wedding. During the whole day they were there to help me with whatever I needed. Amy was also my photographer for the wedding and I was impressed with how she handled taking our photographs and can't wait to see how they turned out in a few weeks. For the price, location, and helpfulness of the owners, I will forever recommend this location to anyone I know planning a wedding. Thank you Kyle and Amy for helping make our special day so perfect!

"Wow is the only word I can use to describe my nieces wedding at Portico in Arizona. The whole atmosphere of the venue was perfect. I am not sure what I loved more, the beautiful court yard that she was married in, the outside reception hall, or the outside décor of fire pits and fountains. This is my first time to Arizona and Melanie had said we wouldn’t be disappointed, that she found a wedding venue that showed off all of her favorite parts of Arizona, and she was not lying.
There was not a thing I could complain about, the food was so wonderful, especially the chicken, wow! Her flowers were beautiful and the DJ was great. I can not believe that she did not have to go out and get her own vendors. I wish I had that option when my two daughters were married, I might have been able to enjoy it.
This is a beautiful site and the owners appeared to be so attentive to the bride and groom as well as her mother. All I can say to others is to not think twice about reserving this place; you might be able to enjoy your own wedding."
My husband and I chose Portico Weddings for our March 31, 2018 wedding venue and could not have been more amazingly pleased. From the moment I walked onto the property while searching for a venue I knew Portico was where I wanted to have my wedding--I didn't even go tour the remaining venues on my list. In one venue I would be able to be married outside in a beautiful grassy area with lush trees that I had always dreamed of, my guests could enjoy cocktail hour in the spacious open courtyard with an outside built-in bar, and then dinner and dancing in the beautiful spacious tented pavilion on the property. It was perfect. The attention to details they both provided were beyond amazing. The pricing for their venue was hands down the most affordable for us which included breaking down payments for us to make over a time period plus we could bring in our own vendors and provide our own alcohol for the bar. Kyle and Amy were always available to answer questions no matter what it was--they never made me feel like I was bothering them--especially when we came down to the final 2 weeks before the wedding and my anxiety kicked in. Every phone call and email to Kyle and Amy was answered, suggestions given, details provided that I probably would not have thought of. I could go on forever about how amazing the were. Kyle and Amy were absolutely amazing through the entire wedding planning and day of process. Arriving to the venue on the day of our wedding I was at a loss for words at how beautiful everything was. Every detail I had discussed with Kyle and Amy was taken care of--even a few details I had not thought of. We had nothing to worry about. They made our wedding a night we will never forget. Thank you Kyle and Amy from the bottom of our hearts. You both are amazing!
"I think as a mother of the bride there is no greater feeling than seeing your daughter happy on her wedding day. It was incredibly hard not to be close by when my only daughter made wedding day decisions, especially since we were footing the bill. I was a little worried when she called to say she found the perfect place for her wedding. She convinced me though that it was exactly what she wanted and kept saying it represented everything she loved about Arizona, (I think she said this to everyone she saw at the wedding). I was still worried after I saw the pictures of the site of the website because I just couldn’t picture it. My husband and I were finally able to see the venue on a visit months later and I new instantly that my daughter was right, it was perfect. I thought it was perfect at the time, and then saw it again the day before the wedding after some beautiful renovations were made, and loved it even more.
From the time we walked on to the property for the wedding till the time we drove off, Kyle and Amy were only concerned with what my daughter needed and how to make her happy. In fact, as soon as my daughter walked into the building the day of the wedding, Amy said she looked stressed and offered to do anything to make things better. Now things like that make a mother happy, which makes a father of the bride happy as well.
I have recently seen the wedding pictures Amy herself took and the video Kyle made and am more than satisfied, they are beautiful lasting memories.
I have no complaints except that I wish they could have rubbed off on our hotel attendants.
Thank you Kyle and Amy for your help."

I was blown away by how awesome everything went @ Portico. Beyond the very competitive pricing, convenient location, and classy style of this place it is the proprietors that make it special. Amy & Kyle have a passion for what they do, and they bring a cheerful expertise that is hard to find. Every other place we went in our venue selection process we were met by sales people trying to hit a quota. The folks at Portico are real, and they want to help you create a beautiful wedding. Their experience and relationships with a full array of excellent vendors means that you have a one stop shop for everything you'll need. So many folks have come to us saying our wedding was the best they could remember. The DJ was flexible and our jams kept the place jumping. The food was off the hook. More than anything, it was comfortable, with plenty of quiet nooks for chatting. The bar service was solid, and everything worked like a well oiled machine. Amy's work as a photographer is world class. Kyle wears more hats than I can count, he is the problem annihilator. If you are planning a wedding, you should absolutely check this place out!

"Billy and I want to let you know how much we appreciate everything you did for us on our wedding day. Every detail was perfect and the two of you really helped to make everything flow smoothly throughout the evening. I cannot even tell you how many compliments we received on your venue. Some people said it was the most beautiful and intimate wedding they had ever gone to. I am really grateful. I have even had a couple friends asking about the venue because they are interested in it for their wedding. I have recommended you guys with 100% certainty that their wedding will also be memorable and beautiful.
Thanks again to the both of you!"Billy and Aubrey

"We got married on a sunny day in March at Portico. Planning a wedding can be quite stressful but with the help of God leading us to the right location, that stress slowly started to fade away. Our first initial tour at Portico was very lovely. It was perfect for a small, simple, and beautiful wedding. Amy was very kind and polite and made it clear that her and Kyle would do everything in their power to accommodate our needs. We ended up booking our wedding that day!! We appreciated Amy and Kyle’s openness to our thoughts and ideas. The fact that Portico provided choosing your own centerpieces and table cloths for the tables they provided was fantastic!! There was plenty of colors and arrangements to choose from that were simple yet elegant. The catering was very professional and the food was delicious. Amy and Kyle made sure that everything went smoothly on our wedding day and communicated with us very well to make sure we were up to speed with what was going on. That was such a relief.
Our overall experience was fabulous! Amy and Kyle were so easy to work with and truly cared about helping make our day amazing. We admire their hard work and dedication. Thank you Amy and Kyle for everything you have done for us, we are so thankful!
God bless you,
Matthew and Ester
