Historic Downtown Santa Fe

The New Mexico History Museum and Palace of the Governors are set in the heart of 400-year-old Santa Fe on the Plaza. nmhistorymuseum.org

The New Mexico Museum of Art offers an enchanting wedding or cocktail reception in a courtyard garden full of flowers, an awards ceremony in a stately boardroom, luncheon—or an early breakfast in a sculpture garden. nmartmuseum.org

The Saint Francis Auditorium serves as one of Santa Fe’s premier performance halls, seats 450 people, and is a perfect venue for events from weddings to concerts to lectures. nmartmuseum.org/about-us/rent

Santa Fe Museum Hill on Milner Plaza

Milner Plaza on Museum Hill straddles a ridgetop once crossed by travelers on the Old Santa Fe Trail. Located in the close-in foothills of the Sangre de Cristo range, it provides a stunning view.

The Museum of Indian Arts & Culture and the historic Meem Auditorium in the Laboratory of Anthropology offer spectacular venues for private parties, receptions, and corporate events. The museum offers intimate settings for small groups and meetings, or ceremonies and celebrations. miaclab.org/facilities

The Museum of International Folk Art offers a variety of exciting spaces available for rental. Outdoor spaces boast spectacular mountain views. Indoor spaces include a light-filled atrium. Corporate events, weddings, and receptions can all be accommodated. internationalfolkart.org/about/facility-rental

Lincoln, a town frozen in time

In this quiet, one-street community your wedding guests can walk in the footsteps of Sheriff Pat Garrett, Billy the Kid, and other infamous characters involved in the Lincoln County War. Imagine your ceremony in the Old Lincoln County Courthouse or the San Juan Mission Church. Arrive on horseback or Harley.

Jemez, among the ruins at Giusewa

Imagine your event taking place among the massive stone walls of San Jose de los Jemez Mission, built about the time the Pilgrims arrived in Plymouth Rock. nmhistoricsites.org/jemez
