Hi, I'm Melissa.


Agua Linda Farms is the romantic outdoor wedding venue of Amado, Arizona

Finding a wedding venue in Tucson that offers a beautiful, green, lush outdoor space is a tall order in the desert. However, couples can find that and more at Agua Linda Farms. This Wedding Venue is a private 63-acre ranch/farm between Tucson and Nogales, Arizona. It has a rich history and is the perfect venue for couples seeking a wedding venue that is unique, personal, and brimming with personality.

What Agua Linda Farms has to offer

Lush, Green Wedding Venue

Agua Linda Farms is a large private estate with towering trees and in the Spring is full of hollyhocks, roses, and other flowers. It is unique from other wedding venues in Tucson because it is lush with its sprawling green lawns, towering trees, and multiple garden areas and flower beds.


Probably its largest selling point is privacy. It is a private estate, which means you and your guests will be the only ones there celebrating that day. There won’t be interruptions from other guests or golfers or other weddings.

Bridal Suite and Groom’s Suite

The Farm has a Spanish Colonial-style bar/clubhouse where the groom and his groomsmen can relax before the ceremony. The venue has a darling pool and pool house in the back with incredible mountain views from every angle. Many couples will set up the bar inside the pool house. There is a lovely bridal dressing room with pink tiled floors and a private patio. There is an in-house DJ and tables, chairs, and linens are available as well. 

All-Day Access

This venue grants you all-day access to the property. This is unique from many other Tucson wedding venues which limit your access to the property to only a few hours. This ties into another feature, which is that your wedding is the only one scheduled on that day. There are many venues that book multiple events a day. I have had this happen, and it limits where you can take photographs and can be confusing for your guests.

Large Capacity

Lastly, it has so much space! There are multiple locations around the property where you can capture stunning portraits and create a beautiful experience for your guests.

About the Owner

Stewart and Laurel Loew are the owners of Agua Linda Farms and they do such an incredible job! They are very involved with creating an amazing experience for each of the couples they work with. They are typically available the day of your event should any loose ends need to be tied up. Stewart is the DJ and he always keeps the party going and brings a lot of energy.

The best time of year to have your wedding

The best time to have your wedding at the farm is either in the Spring or the Fall. Temperatures are more mild during these seasons and since the Farm is an outdoor wedding venue, you want to ensure your guests are not uncomfortable with the hot Arizona summers. In the Spring the flowers are in full bloom and this makes for stunning portraits, so the Spring is probably my favorite time to have your wedding at Agua Linda Farms.

How to get to the Venue

This wedding venue is only 30 minutes south of Tucson ( or, 25 minutes north of Nogales), right off of Interstate 19. It is a convenient drive from Tucson International Airport, with close to zero traffic between the two. There are several hotel options only minutes away from Agua Linda Farms. I recommend Canoa Ranch Golf Resort for couples and their guests to stay at. It has a golf course, and beautiful accommodations, and is minutes from the wedding venue.
