A New Way to Wed, Relax and Retreat
Please note: Our 2022 and 2023 wedding application period is now closed. We will begin accepting applications for our 2024 wedding lottery in mid-February 2023.
Bring together your nearest and dearest to celebrate your love with an intimate wedding that commemorates your commitment and embraces la vida generosa, the generous life. Los Poblanos weddings are capped at a maximum of 60 people to align with our well-being model of connection, health and happiness. As we long to re-engage and form more meaningful connections, intimate weddings provide an ideal platform to gather around the shared table, enrich relationships and deepen bonds. After hosting weddings for many years, it is our earnest belief that smaller gatherings are more successful, much merrier and profoundly personal. With 45 guest rooms, a spa, daily yoga classes, tours and programming, there are many ways to enrich and elevate your wedding weekend. Let Los Poblanos become your destination for well-being experiences and transformative, regenerative travel, with an intimate wedding experience that is as romantic as it is relaxing.
Our intimate weddings are especially magical, and availability is limited to allow our dedicated staff to provide the best possible experience -- from the initial planning call to the conclusion of your event. Wedding dates are filled through an annual lottery system. The application period for 2022 and 2023 is now closed. Information about the lottery process is provided below and the application period for 2024 weddings will open in February 2023. We are delighted to present our reimagined Wedding Package, which distills our many years of experience in the wedding industry into an experience that truly reflects the very best of Los Poblanos.
From the serenity of the setting in historic buildings on the farm grounds by day to the mesmerizing firelight in the kivas by night to the unforgettable food and service, the experience was transformative.

The Wedding Package
Weddings at Los Poblanos represent the very best of what we have to offer. From the stunning setting of the historic La Quinta building to the award-winning Rio Grande Valley Cuisine, there is much more to our 25-acre farm than a wedding venue. Our property is steeped in a rich history with a distinct New Mexican sense of place. No matter the season, there is something special to revel in -- from the gardens bursting to life in May to the majestic sandhill cranes flying overhead on a clear, blue-sky December day. The experience of getting married at Los Poblanos reflects all aspects of our dynamic well-being model. The warm hospitality of our seasoned staff, the well-appointed, luxurious guest rooms at our Inn, the award-winning cuisine and wine lists, the opportunity to relax and recenter at our Hacienda Spa and Wellness Yurt and the iconic John Gaw Meem-designed historic buildings combine to create an utterly unforgettable wedding destination for you and your guests.

You helped us to realize our vision of beauty and harmony. We know it takes a great deal of work to make such an event appear so simple and choreographed. We’ll always have the memories of that day, and thanks to you, they are perfect. We got such great feedback - guests uniformly said it was one of the most beautiful weddings they'd attended, and the food and beverage received very high praise. You put together a day that made us feel special, yet somehow carefree. It was all we could have asked for.

La Quinta Grounds
- Grand Portal
- North Lawn
- East Lawn
- Terrace Lawn
- Gilpin Gallery
- Sycamore Patio
The classical styling, size and grandeur of this space, designed by John Gaw Meem in 1934, creates the perfect setting for outdoor ceremonies and dining. With magnificent views of the Sandia Mountains, the Grand Portal has a twenty foot deep covered portico surrounding a Portuguese tiled swimming pool with fountains. It features a true fresco painted in 1937 by Peter Hurd depicting San Ysidro, the patron saint of farmers, and a series of small mural panels of pastoral farm scenes by Harry Miller.
Enveloped by thick hedges and adobe walls, the North Lawn is an intimate, lush area that is perfect for a private ceremony. Striking massive doors framed by creeping ivy and young elm trees provide an elegant backdrop with little need for added decoration.
One of John Gaw Meem’s architectural masterpieces, the Grand Ballroom is undeniably one of the most stunning venues in New Mexico. The ballroom’s parquet walnut floors, elaborate carved ceilings, decorative Spanish tile and monumental fireplace make it a magnificent setting for truly memorable events. Four sets of French doors open to the surrounding gardens and the Grand Portal.
Spilling out from La Quinta, the vast, tree-lined East Lawn is a stunning location for a ceremony. With John Gaw Meem's architectural masterpiece and symmetrical sycamore trees to the west and views of the Sandia Mountains to the east, the grand space sets the stage to make beautiful memories.
The Gazebo is set behind John Gaw Meem’s architectural masterpiece, La Quinta, and is an ideal space for intimate ceremonies, dining and afternoon teas. Tucked in a lush, secluded garden, this octagonal pavilion is our most private setting and features a dramatic outdoor fireplace and lattice between paired posts.
Just beyond the Gazebo, the Terrace Lawn is filled with tall, mature evergreen trees, making it a lush and inviting space no matter the time of year. An acequia (an ancient ditch irrigation system) runs just west of the trees, making it possible to faintly hear rushing water in the summer season.
Albuquerque’s first art gallery open to the public, the clean, contemporary Gilpin Gallery features four large windows for natural light, original cork floors and a permanent exhibition of black and white photographs by Laura Gilpin from 1937.
Entering through famed New Mexican artist Gustave Baumann’s carved deco doors, the Library is a grand yet warm space filled with a collection of books, vintage photographs and art. With its leather couches and deep wingback chairs flanking the fireplace, it is the perfect gathering place for cocktail hours and intimate parties.
Dine under the shade of four stately sycamore trees on this private gated patio surrounded by lush ivy and winding wisteria.
The Application Process
We fill all available wedding dates for the upcoming year through a lottery system and accept applications within a limited window each year. Applications for 2022 and 2023 weddings are currently closed. Applications for 2024 weddings will open in Feburary 2023.
Applications are accepted for a six week period in February and March through our Wedding Lottery Application form. Names are drawn through a randomly-generated selection process -- not the order in which they were submitted. We then contact all applicants to share their position on the list and what to expect in terms of the next steps. Throughout the months of April and May, our Event Sales team works with each couple in turn to select a wedding date. Once all dates are filled, we add all other interested couples to our waitlist. If dates become available throughout the year, we contact couples according to their position on the waitlist. Please read on for frequently asked questions about this process and our wedding offerings.

Our dedicated team can help craft an itinerary to make your celebratory weekend even more memorable.

Professional guided bike tours are also available with advance reservation for a leisurely two-hour ride along the Bosque Trail.
