The ABSOLUTE MOST Romantic Destinations for an Albuquerque Wedding

Whether it's charm, serenity or natural beauty you're looking for in a wedding, Albuquerque has more than a few places to consider. Some may even surprise you.

Rustic never looked so good

Old Town Farm

A farm wedding in the heart of the city is possible at Old Town Farm. Celebrate by the red barn, while the horses look on. Make it a green wedding--they'll bring flowers and food from the farm's grounds to your celebration table.

For weddings that soar

From the Balloon Museum, views stretch expansively to the Sandias and the valley below. Rent a space indoors where the soaring architecture opens to the skies, or in warmer weather, celebrate outside. Either way, it's your day to fly high. 

Love on the water

Take your vows on the wooden dock over the water at Manzano Mountain Retreat in Torreon. Your guests can mingle under the canopy of trees, and your reception choices include large or small indoor spaces, or outdoor spots like the apple orchard.

For Old World New Mexican charm

El Zocalo Plaza

A refurbished, 135 year old convent, El Zocalo Plaza in Bernalillo exudes Old World charm, but comes with all the modern amenities. Built along the El Camino Real, El Zocalo's thick adobe walls, brick floors, courtyard and fountains provide a romantic wedding space just minutes from the city.

For classic elegance and a firm hand

Hotel Andaluz

The Hotel Andaluz has been doing weddings for 75 years. Celebrations at the award winning hotel can be small and intimate, or large enough to accommodate up to 200 guests.

For their 75th anniversary this year, they're looking for photos of couples married there in the past, so they can compile a special scrapbook of wedding memories.

Surrounded by nature's beauty

When architect John Gaw Meem designed the buildings at Los Poblanos, he probably didn't envision them becoming the picture perfect setting for weddings they are today. The Territorial Revival buildings and lush gardens provide elegance to any ceremony, and the Inn provides exceptional guest and honeymoon quarters. 

For those who want to elope, a place just for you

If looking for a discrete getaway is your idea of the perfect wedding venue, Desert Harbor is happy to accommodate with elopement packages. Located between Albuquerque and Santa Fe in serenely quiet surroundings, it might just be the perfect romantic hideaway. And with only one guest house, no one will be nearby to discover your secret.

For a traditional church wedding

If you're going to the chapel to get married, it might be to the Old San Ysidro Church in Corrales. Since the mid 19th century, the church with thick adobe walls has been a gathering place for special occasions. Weddings can accommodate up to 150 people.

When only the Sandias will do

For a simple wedding beneath the backdrop of the Sandia Mountains, the Elena Gallegos picnic area has an amphitheater with built in seating and front row views of the city as well as the majestic Sandia peak.
