Finding unique and beautiful venue to hold your wedding can be quite the task! I have photographed many weddings in New Mexico and there are so many gorgeous locations! Here are a few ideas for your wedding that are just a little bit out of the ordinary or just amazingly gorgeous. Good luck and congratulations!

Albuquerque Wedding Locations

Los Poblanos
Beautiful pastoral setting in Albuquerque's north valley. Accommodates up to 160 guests.
I can't say enough about how beautiful this location is. There are so many different areas for photographs that you could easily spend 2 hours doing just the photos of the bride and groom. The staff is very helpful, friendly, and professional.

Casa Rondeña
Accommodations for 20-200 guests. Charming vineyard setting with a Tuscan feel in Northwest Albuquerque. The grounds are beautifully kept to serve as a backdrop for your wedding.

Nature Pointe
Located in Tijeras, NM. 15 minutes east of Albuquerque. Backdropped by the Sandias and numerous beautiful wildflowers. Indoor & outdoor space options. Beautifully appointed setting.

Desert Harbor
If you are looking for a place to elope, surrounded by the understated beauty of the desert southwest then Desert Harbor is the perfect setting. The retreat would be a great fit for a couple looking to elope and focus just on each other.

The Railyards
Ample room and space for up to 999 guests, freedom to customize the space to your liking, the charm that is unlike any other space in Albuquerque.

Balloon Museum
Depending on which space you reserve, the Balloon museum is capable of handling large groups from 220 - 1000 guests. I would suggest the Pugash Hall. Pugash has a balcony and a gorgeous view of the mountains as well as the valley and a bird's eye view of Balloon Fiesta Park. Beautiful interior, great lighting options.

El Zocalo
Located in Bernalillo. Classic New Mexican style. Can accommodate up to 175 people.

Old Town Farm
Under the trees or in the old red barn. A rustic feel right in the heart of Albuquerque.

Old San Ysidro Church in Corrales
This beautiful and historic location can seat up to 150 guests. There is no heating or cooling in the building so be sure to choose a nice time of year.

Zinc Wine Bar & Bistro
Available on Sundays for larger groups up to 110 people or any day of the week for groups under 60. The tables can be moved to create a dance floor. The ambiance of this restaurant is beautiful. Wood floors, high ceilings, and tasteful decor.

Seasons Rotisserie & Grill Party Rooms
Great for a smaller reception located right next to Old Town. Can accommodate up to 115 people. No rental fee - minimum food/beverage purchase required

St. Claire Winery
2000 sq ft Dance Floor. Beautiful patio for a relaxed atmosphere.

Chapel of our Lady of Guadalupe
Tucked away in a cozy corner of the Patio Escondido Mall of Old Town, this small chapel can accommodate up to 30 people indoors or 75 people outdoors.

Villa Hispana at Expo New Mexico
Think outside of the box to make a memorable reception/wedding. There are many different venues at Expo New Mexico to host your wedding and reception. Click the link above to go to Expo New Mexico's website for additional information.
