I’ve been doing a series on local Arizona venues that offer DIY options. The Wright House in Mesa is another hidden gem with DIY options.

The Wright House is a garden reception centre established in 1991 offers two main venue options. The Garden Ballroom and the Provencal area.

Do you love history? I posted a blurb from the Wright House on the history of the property at the bottom of the post.

The Wright House has a list of vendors but they allow outside vendors as well, which is great for the DIY couple. Brian & Kristen pulled together their favorite vendors for the DIY vibe and pulled off a super fun Disney adventure theme. The tables are a perfect blend of classic, whimsical, and elegant! 

I have noticed this past year about a third of my couples are planning from afar.

This is yet another couple that planned their wedding from far away -see 3 tips on planning your out of state wedding HERE and so, this makes the wright house was perfect for their wedding because having their ceremony and reception in the same place was a much more doable option for them. Brian and Kristen both live in California but planned their wedding here near the brides family.

Arizona truly is a great destination for weddings.

We have beautiful weather most of the year even for the daring few summer weddings! There are venues from elaborate, southwestern, Arizonan, to simple farm and garden DIY options. And we have thousands of vendors for any style, vibe, or fancy. 

So if you are getting ready to plan your wedding and you wish it somewhere warm but in the country… consider Arizona. And maybe you will find a Hidden Gem for the DIY Couple at the Wright House.

The History of The Wright House

Every home has a soul, made up of brick and mortar and the memories lived there. The soul of The Wright House was born in the 1930’s as a farmhouse outside the young city of Mesa, Arizona. It had its own well for water, and a white picket fence fronted a dirt road that ran into Tempe where the old Hayden Flour Mill was in full operation.

In the 1930’s the home was purchased by Lorenzo & Teresa Wright. Lorenzo and his son, Harold, started a grocery business in Mesa that operated for 50 years.

In 1945, Harold and his wife, Leah, bought the house from Lo & Teresa. They remodeled, adding some rooms, and Leah planted many flowers and some of the trees and shrubs that still remain.

Harold and Leah raised four children, creating many happy memories. In the early days, they often invited guest to ride horses on the twenty acres behind the house, cooked steaks & entertained dignitaries traveling through Mesa.

Harold’s son, Michael, and his wife, Peggy, developed the home into The Wright House, Garden Reception Centre in July of 1991. Since then they have been working to continuously improve the property and make it into an ideal setting for weddings, receptions, and all other special events.

The soul of The Wright House has always been one of peace, beauty, and entertainment. We hope that you and your guests will enjoy the special spirit that dwells here.”
