Rated as one of the nation’s most romantic cities by 10best.com and a top U.S. wedding locale by Destination Wedding Magazine, Santa Fe’s cozy adobe buildings and sweeping vistas offer the perfect backdrop for any wedding. Whether you’re thinking of a black-tie, ballroom extravaganza or a ranch-jeans-and-boots hoedown, no other destination matches Santa Fe’s breadth of options, quality of service, and value. Even Mother Nature agrees, bathing the city’s iconic architecture in sunlight 320 days per year.
If you’re looking for the sacred, Santa Fe boasts the nation’s oldest church, a Gothic-Revival chapel with miraculous staircase, and a towering cathedral memorialized by Willa Cather in Death Comes for the Archbishop. And that’s just for starters. Perhaps a Zen center sets your spirits free. Or non-denominational centers. We have those, too.
In Santa Fe, we make even the secular divine. Couples exchange vows in some of the city’s most famed art galleries, sculpture gardens, and museum courtyards. Want to scream about your love from the mountaintops? Santa Fe’s historic Rocky Mountain haciendas and ranches nestled in Santa Fe’s 1.5 million acres of national forest offer you a choice of mountain ridges.
Best of all, no need to worry about your guests during your wedding getaway. Host your ceremony in what Conde Nast Traveler ranks as one of the world’s Top 10 destinations. You and your betrothed can sneak away for private moments while your guests indulge in Santa Fe’s 250 restaurants and 250 galleries, 13 renowned museums, a burgeoning craft beer and wine scene, and eclectic shopping and outdoor recreation.
Finding the who to marry was the hard part. Finding the where to marry couldn’t be easier.
