Do I have to have a licensed bartender to serve alcohol at my event?

At Val Vista Lakes, it’s necessary to have a licensed and insured bartender in order to serve alcohol. We ask you hire through a professional bartending service so their insurance extends to your event. Please see our list of suggested companies on the Preferred Vendors page. 

Do you have my preferred event day available?

Due to constantly changing availability, we do not have an on-line calendar. To inquire about your preferred day, please call our banquet department at 480-926-9694 or email at

Are linens supplied for the tables?

We are a banquet facility with no in-house catering or linen rental services. Because of this, you are able to bring in your preferred vendor(s) who will supply your linen rental, catering, photography, DJ’ing, etc with no additional fees.

Where does the ceremony and reception take place?

All ceremonies take place outside on the grassy oval which overlooks our multiple waterfalls. The reception takes place inside the banquet room. Both areas have a maximum capacity of 200 people.

Is the deposit refundable if I cancel my event?

Since your event date is secured for you, thus turning away potential clients, the $700 deposit is forfeited if you should cancel your event. However, if at least six months cancellation notice is given, the $200 damage deposit will be issued thus forfeiting the remaining $500 deposit.

Can we just have our ceremony at VVL?

Because we have one wedding related event a day and due to limited space, we are unable to rent the grassy oval solely for a ceremony. The banquet room must be rented in conjunction with other areas. 

How long can I rent the room on my event day?

We hold one wedding related event a day. You will have exclusive use of the banquet room for a 12-hour block of time (10am–10pm) if your event falls on a Sunday–Thursday and a 14-hour block (10am–midnight) on a Friday or Saturday. Due to the rules and regulations of our HOA property, extending the exit time is not possible.

What is the room rental deposit?

A $700 security/damage deposit is required to reserve your event date. $500 of this deposit will be applied to your rental fee balance. The remaining $200 deposit will be refunded and mailed within 10 business days after your event (contingent that the rules and regulation guidelines were followed). 

What is the rental fee?
