Each and every wedding, like each and every love story, is unique – one of a kind – and exciting. And your wedding day, as that one of a kind occasion, is the perfect opportunity for you and your fiancé to share the details of the things you love with some of the people you care most about and who care most about you. It’s also a chance for you to let your guests (particularly out of town guests) get to know a place that has had an impact in your lives together. And, for an Albuquerque wedding, what better way to do so than by embracing local architecture, history, and, of course, food?

Albuquerque Wedding Venues

Hotel Andaluz has a reputation to uphold – that of being one of the best Albuquerque wedding locations around. A historic hotel packed with elegance, and a recipient of the AAA Four Diamond award, the venue has spaces for small gatherings and large events alike. We like the desert colors and size of the Barcelona Ballroom for indoor ceremonies and large receptions, while the Casablanca room is a more modern approach to Albuquerque style. Meanwhile, Los Poblanos Historic Inn and Organic Farm falls on the rustic end of the wedding spectrum. Set on 25 acres filled with cottonwood trees, formal gardens, and lavender fields, this property lives up to its claim to be one of the most magnificent in the Southwest. It’s also a beautiful wedding venue. Take in the architecture – and the view of the Sandia Mountains – in indoor or outdoor ceremonies and make the Fireplace Terrace part of cocktail hour. Or, for a truly extravagant, destination-inspired celebration, reserve the entire Inn for your guests. Classic Southwest accommodations hold up to 65 people and a honeymoon suite is also available.

Albuquerque Wedding Caterers

Now for another major component of your wedding day: the meal. Whether you’re leaning towards heavy hors d’oeuvres and a cocktail hour style reception or a seated dinner, we have one particular Southwestern-inspired caterer in mind: Marja Custom Catering. Fully committed to carefully planned menus and the highest quality ingredients, this company is dedicated to excellent food and excellent service. Embracing the vibrant flavors and local tastes of the Albuquerque area is their specialty, but the options don’t stop there. We do, however, highly recommend that you get a taste of their fresh tortillas and traditional fare before you take your planning any further.

P.S. Don’t forget to use the best planning tools around – our wedding websites are perfect for communicating with your guests and sharing the details of your wedding day and registry.
